Saves are an important component for many fantasy baseball leagues. Closers are one of the most volatile positions in fantasy baseball, and one of the highest turnover positions in MLB. Each year, closers drop like flies and many MLB teams make in-season changes due to injuries or poor performance. Stay on top of all closer depth charts for the AL and NL, and dominate in saves this year.

We will be updating the MLB Closers & Saves Depth Charts every day, all season long. Be sure to also check out these quick-hit notes from @DavidMarcillo77 looking at the biggest offseason bullpen news from around MLB:

  • A few teams will have an all-out bullpen battle in spring training to determine who will get the ninth inning once the season begins. It could end up that someone takes the reins and wins the closer's role outright, or there may be a season-long committee situation on our hands.
  • Craig Kimbrel still hasn't signed, and now there are rumors ranging from, "he's about to sign" to, "he might sit out until mid-season." He'll automatically take over the closer's role on any team he joins, so keep an eye on him because he'll change several roles in any team's bullpen as soon as he signs.

Be sure to also read our other articles on closers, setup men, and bullpens here:
