Bullpen Depth Charts: Relievers To Stream — 4/25

Which relievers might be in line to vulture a save or win today?

Welcome back to Relievers to Stream for Wins and Saves! This will bring you up-to-date bullpen depth charts every morning for the day’s games and makes for a great tool for those of you looking to stream saves or wins. This series runs seven days a week, so be sure to check in every morning to get your daily bullpen fix!




Schedule notes:

  • Yesterday’s Atlanta-Arizona game was postponed due to rain. They’ll play a doubleheader today.
  • Looking ahead to Monday, the following teams are off: the Red Sox, Blue Jays, White Sox, Mets, Nationals, Pirates, Padres, and Diamondbacks. Expect those managers to lean a little harder on their bullpens today, if necessary.
  • Luis Patiño is making his Rays debut, and second career MLB start but isn’t expected to be fully stretched out. Josh Fleming is reportedly going to be their bulk guy. Tampa Bay faces Hyun Jin Ryu and the Blue Jays.


Roster moves:

  • The Dodgers placed Corey Knebel on the IL with a right lat injury. 
  • The Royals activated Greg Holland off the IL. There was no reason given as to why he was placed on the IL and he was only there for a day.
  • The Rays activated Diego Castillo off the COVID-19 IL. He missed just one game due to side effects from being vaccinated.


Yesterday’s performances:

  • Despite Holland’s return from the IL, it was Scott Barlow setting up for Josh Staumont in the Kansas City bullpen. Those two each delivered a perfect inning to secure a 2-1 Royals victory. It was Staumont’s first career save. He also recorded the highest velocity reading of any pitcher on the day, topping out at 100.5 mph.
  • With both Aroldis Chapman and Chad Green having pitched back-to-back days (and three of the last four), Jonathan Loaisiga picked up his first career save. The 26-year-old from Nicaragua took over with two outs in the eighth and retired all four Cleveland batters he faced. 


  • Giovanny Gallegos earned a two-out save, becoming the first Cardinals pitcher other than Alex Reyes to record a save this season. Reyes had pitched three of the previous four days.
  • Devin Williams gave up a homer to Jason Heyward but it didn’t prevent Brewers closer, Josh Hader, from eventually picking up his fourth save of the season. Williams has now surrendered three home runs in just 6 2/3 innings so far this year. He’d given up just three homers in 40 2/3 career innings entering the season. 


  • Jordan Romano had a rough first outing off the IL for the Blue Jays. He entered the eighth inning with the game tied 3-3 and walked the first two batters he faced. The third (and final) batter he faced reached on a run-scoring error.
  • That slip-up by the Toronto pen created a save chance for the Rays. Kevin Cash turned to Andrew Kittredge, who recorded his second career save. Again, Castillo was activated before this game. Maybe Cash just wanted to give him another day of rest, maybe this is just the Rays. Ryan Thompson earned the win after he took over to record the final out of the seventh inning and stranded the bases loaded in the eighth.


  • Codi Heuer and Aaron Bummer protected a one-run White Sox lead before handing things over to the closer. Liam Hendriks, who had thrown 34 pitches the previous night, gave up a game-tying home run to Willie Calhoun, giving him as many earned runs so far this year (five) as he had all last season. Nick Madrigal hit a walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth to give Hendriks a win. Hendriks, Bummer, and Heuer have all pitched back-to-back days.
  • Héctor Neris earned his third save for the Phillies in Colorado last night. He blew the save the previous night and has now pitched three of the past four days. The only other Philadelphia pitcher to earn a save so far this year, José Alvarado, is on the IL. 


  • Marlins closer Yimi García gave up a solo home run and a double in a non-save chance. He entered the bottom of the ninth with a four-run lead over the Giants.
  • Kenley Jansen’s cutter was flirting with 95 mph again as he recorded a four-out save against the Padres. He entered the eighth inning with the go-ahead run at the plate and retired four of the five batters he faced, two of them on strikes.
