Phillies' David Robertson: Headed to Philadelphia
As expected, Robertson opted to stick in the northeast after ending the 2018 season in New York. The 33-year-old is coming off another solid season in which he posted a 3.23 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 11.8 K/9 across 69.2 innings. Given his proven track record in the ninth inning -- he recorded north of 30 saves in three straight seasons with the White Sox from 2014-2016 -- Robertson figures to be the favorite (over incumbent Seranthony Dominguez) to emerge as Philadelphia's closer in 2019. Even without a full-time closer role, however, Robertson is still rosterable in mixed-league formats thanks to his strong ratios and impressive strikeout rate, and the Phillies could opt to mix and match in order to leverage matchups in the late innings, rather than settle on one closer.
