Fantasy Baseball 2018: Closer Rankings & Bullpen Report – Week 2

Colby Conway updates his Closer Ranking & Bullpen Reports every week only at BGFS. Follow him on Twitter @ColbyRConway.

 

Here at Big Guy Fantasy Sports, you can see each team’s closer, along with the next man up, and a 1-10 ranking on the confidence in not only the closer’s ability to maintain the gig, but confidence in productive appearances when asked to close out a ball game. On this scale, a 1 is extremely low confidence, whereas a 10 would be unbreakable confidence.
