With Colorado Rockies RP Jason Motte (shoulder) likely to start the year on the disabled list, RPs Jake McGee and Chad Qualls could be in play to handle the ninth inning, and RP Miguel Castro is another candidate.
Fantasy Tip: Manager Walt Weiss has been coy about naming a specific closer heading into the season, although most folks automatically assumed it would mainly be McGee, who Colorado traded for in the offseason. That's likely to be the case, but the Rockies could mix and match based on matchups. McGee is the closer to own in fantasy leagues, but because of the uncertainty he's more of an RP3.

Colorado Rockies RPs Jake McGee, Jason Motte, Chad Qualls and Adam Ottavino (elbow) are all candidates to pitch in the ninth inning, according to bullpen coach Darren Holmes. Holmes noted the bullpen will focus on retiring hitters at critical times and not predetermined roles.
Fantasy Tip: Bullpen by committees are a hassle for fantasy owners, and given the home venue in this discussion, the fantasy value is low for all four arms in the majority of leagues. However, it is also Friday, Feb. 5, so a lot can change before the season starts, and a full-time closer could emerge at some point. For the time being, though, proceed with caution when approaching this bullpen. Ottavino has the lowest value because he'll be for the majority of the first half of the season following Tommy John surgery last year.

Free-agent RP Jason Motte (Cubs) and Chad Qualls (Astros) reached two-year deals with the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, Dec. 8.
Fantasy Tip: Both righties could figure into the closing mix. Neither has the electric stuff to give fantasy owners confidence in taking a Rockies closer early, but both are worth consideration for a flyer as a high-end third reliever.
