.The Atlanta Braves may use an in-house reliever as their closer to open the 2019 season, and A.J. Minter could be the best long-term option with Arodys Vizcaino having durability issues with his right shoulder. Edwin Diaz was acquired in a trade by the Mets and free-agent closer Craig Kimbrel's asking price is currently too high for the Braves liking. Minter had a 3.23 ERA, 10.1 strikeouts per nine innings and 3.2 BB/9 in 65 outings last year. The lefty also converted 15 of his 17 save chances when Vizcaino was hurt. Minter has also added a changeup to his arsenal that could make him even more dominant next year. Minter will have sleeper appeal as a late-round, low-end fantasy closer if Atlanta doesn't add any other relievers on the open market. However, with both Vizcaino and Chad Sobotka capable of closing out games, too, Minter's leash will be rather short if he struggles.
