If you've been a subscriber here at Fantasy Alarm, you've seen the Fantasy Baseball Closer Grid before. If you're new, it's very simple. We not only list who the closer is for each MLB team, but we then go another two-deep into the bullpen to let you know who would be next in line to accrue saves for your fantasy baseball lineups. There are always MLB relief pitchers out there who could be rising up the fantasy baseball rankings and MLB projections. It's important to know the bullpen depth chart for each MLB team if you're dealing with players on the MLB injury report, looking for fantasy baseball waiver wire targets, or keeping an eye on the MLB top prospects. Some of these lesser-known MLB relief pitchers could be fantasy baseball sleepers should there be an injury or closer change, or if your league scores for holds. Sometimes the heir-apparent is an obvious one, but in many cases, it is not. We look for things like skill set, contact rates, pitch command, pitch mix, how many lefties are in the bullpen, who has worked as a closer before, who has experience in high-leverage situations, etc. Be sure to check out the recent MLB fantasy baseball closer reports for weekly updates and player breakdowns. Keep an eye on the latest MLB player news and the fantasy baseball stock watch report to find other updates on MLB bullpen situations. 



GREEN will be those with strong talent, abundant opportunities, and a high level of job security. The tier below will be in YELLOW followed by ORANGE and lastly RED to indicate who may have the job right now but could lose it with one bad hiccup.
