Poll: Which Young Closer Could Join The Top Tier In 2016?

Yesterday we learned that Aroldis Chapman had received a 30 game suspension, leaving a void in the Top Tier of closers (along with Craig Kimbrel & Kenley Jansen).  Which young closer has the best chance of emerging and joining that tier in 2016?  Let’s hear your thoughts:


  1. Marky Mark says:

    Does Wade Davis really count as “young”? Dude’s 30 years old.

  2. jrob23 says:

    all three are already top tier

  3. Rotoprofessor says:

    Marky Mark – Fair enough, maybe “newer” closer would’ve been better/

    jrob – I have them all in that tier right below the truly elite (Kimbrel/Jansen)

    You said it all…. Britton has all attributes of a great closer, albeit without quite the flashy K/9s of the top tier, but a far superior GB%. The only blown saves he had last year were due to an improbable set of infield hits.
