(Paula from Colorado)
|There are a ton of potential split closers this season as teams become more comfortable with a flexible approach. I like Jace Fry long term, but he's behind Colome and Herrera, presumably. Being behind two veterans makes his chance a long shot in 2019. If you like veteran throwbacks, Melancon could take over for Will Smith if there's an injury. And Ottavino would be the logical choice behind Aroldis given the Yanks skipped over Betances last time they had the chance. Keone Kela could get a shot if Pittsburgh trades away their closer like always every few years. But my top choice right now is Joe Jimenez. Shane Greene is not a secure option in Detroit, so nab Jimenez while you still can. (Kevin Jebens)|

(Alex Prettyface from Gundergunder)
|This is part of why I foresee a path to 2019 contention as hinted at above, even if it's unlikely--and we've seen how conservative teams have gotten when playoff berths appear to be less than 50% in the offseason.
I'm bullish on both Ryan Burr and Ian Hamilton, Jace Fry has already had an excellent 2018 in the majors, and there's reason to think Caleb Frare is already here and effective. There's always attrition in the bullpen, but there's just so many guys here who have flashed ability to be excellent back end options, and it's a strength of the organization. Covey has looked really good in short bursts, Carson Fulmer will have an offseason to prepare solely as a reliever, some of the guys who don't make the rotation, like say, Jordan Stephens may be effective in that role. Nate Jones might come back, Zack Burdi should be in the majors at some point next year, and even the newly promoted Jose Ruiz has an extremely live arm. Kodi Medeiros is still getting to try starting, but I think he could be a late inning reliever as well. Aaron Bummer is a guy they like a lot.
All of these guys individually are risky propositions based on being relievers, health, ability, etc. But collectively I think they just have a flood of in-house options such that this could be a big strength as soon as next year. (Nick Schaefer)

(Jon Galbunnie from San Francisco)
|As high as the third round; probably a back-end arm or the rare beast known as the successful two-inning lefty out of the pen. (Pre-Draft Chat with Nick J. Faleris)|
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
