Okay, so who's closing for Arizona??
With the trade of Jose Valverde to Houston, Tony Pena becomes the clear favorite for saves in Arizona.
Pena fatigued at the end of last year, but he still finished with a 3.27 ERA in 85 1/3 innings. Used more carefully, as he will be in the closer's role, he should prove to be a fine replacement for Jose Valverde. If not, the Diamondbacks will have Chad Qualls and Brandon Lyon ready as backups. They also have Max Scherzer and Dustin Nippert as high-upside bullpen possibilities if they fail to cut it as starters.
