Player Notes
Twins general manager Thad Levine said on Fantasy Sports Radio on Tuesday that Brandon Kintzler will be "given every opportunity to start the year in the closer's role."

Advice: It's not surprising, as Glen Perkins is making his way back from labrum surgery and could begin the year on the disabled list. Kintzler served as the closer for the bulk of the 2016 season and posted a 3.15 ERA, 17 saves, and a 35/8 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings. Perkins could regain the role if he proves his health and effectiveness, but Kintzler is the pitcher to own in this bullpen for now.
