Cody Crosby, FantasyJuice.com

In the first installment of our Closer Depth Chart series we post our closer predictions for the 2010 fantasy baseball season.

The rankings will be updated as we approach the start of the season to reflect changes in bullpens and Spring performances.

During the season we will post the closer situations for each major league team on a weekly basis. Check back often for updated rankings.

Below are the current projected closers for the 2010 season, our confidence ratings that they will keep the job, and their nearest competitors for the closing job.
