Draft Guide Preview: RP Tiers

Since before draft season began, we've been providing looks into our 2020 Rotoworld Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide to help give you the knowledge you need to make smarter decisions when your league's draft rolls around.

Complete with content covering various league types — from projections and rankings to tiers, ADP reports, mock drafts and exclusive expert columns — this year's edition is the finest we've produced.

Today, we'll be giving you a look at the guide's positional tiers with some solid relief pitcher options. 

Take a look:

 

TIER THREE

Brad Hand (L)
Craig Kimbrel (R)
Liam Hendriks (R)
Taylor Rogers (L)
Ken Giles (R)
José Leclerc (R)
Héctor Neris (R)
Archie Bradley (R)
Nick Anderson (R)
Carlos Martínez (R)

It’s wise to draft one of the closers from the top two tiers, but a fine alternative to that would be grabbing two of the options from this tier. Hendriks took over as the closer in Oakland last season after Blake Treinen flamed out and registered a 1.80 ERA with 124 strikeouts across 85 total innings. Rogers had a similar story, as he snatched the ninth-inning reins in Minnesota amid Blake Parker’s struggles and rolled to a 2.61 ERA and 90/11 K/BB ratio in 69 frames.
