JJ is an extreme gb pitcher, which mitigates the low k%, and he's strung together a few nice years. It's closers, anything could happen, but he'll have a lot of rope. Villarreal is someone to watch, but there's no way he maintains a walk rate like that over a long stretch. If he could get below 4, though, he could still be effective.
I don't love Strop necessarily but he's the current next in line and I just have a feeling the wheels could come off Johnson. Like I said that's a lot of innings for an RP. Average of 85 over the last two years. Some signs that he was leaking oil last year. Maybe a hunch. Hunches aren't necessarily a bad thing.
