2019 March/April Closer Thread

What do people think about the Cubs situation?  I drafted Carl Edwards Jr. with like my very last pick of the draft  I think he has a chance to be closer but they might go with a "closer by committee"

Gonna be Strop if he's ready to go until Morrow gets back from injury.

Adam Conley will be closing games sooner than later.  His stuff is going to play dirty in the pen.  He looks primed for a huge breakout.  

 

picked up conley and romo...monitering the situation closely myself in a "save hungry" league....could see it being a commitee for sure, but hopefully conleys ratios and high k/rate are solid

I don't think it'll be Edwards, nor do I believe it will it be a committee. If Strop is gtg by the start of the season, he'll be the guy. When Morrow returns, he'll be the guy. Now if Strop isn't ready for OD, then they may go CEJ or a committee until he is ready.

Committee is likely, but I see Cishek as the dark horse for the lions share of saves early on in the season.

I double dipped on Strop/Morrow in my draft yesterday. Using up 2 spots is annoying but if you find yourself behind on closers it seemed like a solid pairing late in the draft.  Hoping I can slide Morrow to the IL at some point.

who would have a better season ... Strickland or Alvarado?

 

I think Alvarado has a little more risk due to the way TB has handled their bullpen the last couple years particularly last season. That being said I still like him more than Strickland.

Brewers skipper Craig Counsell admitted Thursday that Corey Knebel is dealing with an UCL issue and will get a second opinion.

Counsell elaborated, noting that it wasn't a complete tear of his UCL and that he has pitched with the injury for awhile, so Tommy John surgery is not a foregone conclusion here. Still, it remains a possibility. We'll wait and see what the second opinion holds, but the Brewers' interest in Craig Kimbrel seemingly makes much more sense now.

is there any hope for Brasier at this point?

Barnes has been up and Down but he had. Good outing today. Brasier hasn’t pitched since his debut about 5 days ago. Does anyone know why?

 

 

FYI that is from a Providence Journal writer I follow on Twitter. I believe they said Wednesday the plan was for Brasier to pitch Friday, so just a work management thing.

Thanks for the update. It’s just been a little while but I know he just debuted recently.
