What's up with him? Is he going to be a good closer this year? Is he injured? And what's your projection for him? I have an offer of a trade with him coming to me and I want to know if I should be wanting to get him.

He hurt his finger but he should be good for 35 saves. You want him on your team.

id say hes "good" for 30 if hes healthy, but he has a strong tendency to get hurt and players like that seems to keep getting hurt throughout their careers. id give a modest projection of 19 saves for him.

I'd trade him to someone who has him projected at 35 saves and get a more dependable player.

I guess I'm a bit optimistic on Williamson compared with everyone else. The guy has great stuff and hopefully he'll have a healthy season this year.

I'd take a tentative approach to Williamson, definitely a lot better relievers out there than him. His stats last year left a lot to be desired. Sure he was recovering from an injury, but the question is, did the surgery cause him to lose the edge? This will be the trial year. I'd place my bet on someone else, but he could be a sleeper if ya want to take the chance.

There ARE better closers, but he is not a bad choice. He went for $19 in my draft. (Was the best available after keepers). Not many other choices in Cincy to close ...

Look for 28-32 Saves - decent ERA.

i took him in the 19th round of my draft, i think getting 30 saves from that pick is a great steal ;)
