Also, closers at that level are usually old for the level, and they’re usually organizational guys. Teams don’t usually put legit prospects in those roles, since they want their prospects pitching on a schedule. If you’ve got a relief prospect, you want to guarantee him a certain amount of innings per week, rather than only playing him when a save situation comes around.

You are going to be sitting on the best team in the Pirate System. Where is Nathan Kilcrease? If we traded him I must have missed it. A 5’6″ Closer?
