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


  • The Cleveland-Toronto game scheduled for Saturday was rained out and will be made up as part of a doubleheader Sunday. This will give Cleveland back-to-back doubleheaders as they are scheduled for one against the White Sox on Monday.
  • Only four teams have a scheduled day off Monday (Toronto, Texas, Miami, and Colorado) and may be a little more aggressive with the late-inning bullpen pieces through the weekend, knowing they can rest them to start the week.


Injuries and Transactions


Yesterday’s Performances


  • Ryan Pressly simply did not look good Saturday night as he took his first blown save of the season. After collecting the final out of the eighth inning, Pressly returned to close out the ninth with his Astros up by three runs. After collecting the first two outs of the inning off the first two batters, Pressly went on to allow back-to-back extra-base hits, including a game-tying home run by Fernando Tatís Jr.
  • Mark Melancon also took a blown save, his second of the season, after allowing his inherited runner to score in the 10th inning. Austin Adams backed himself into the win after blowing his save opportunity in the 11th inning, while Miguel Diaz took home his first career save pitching a perfect 12th inning for the Padres.
  • Raisel Iglesias pitched a perfect ninth inning for the Angels, closing out their four run win over the Athletics on Saturday. Iglesias hadn’t pitched previously since Wednesday so it wasn’t too surprising to see him out there in a non-save situation.
  • Liam Hendriks recorded his 11th and 12th saves of the season Saturday, recording the save in both games of their doubleheader. Hendriks combined to throw 31 pitches between his two appearances while recording five strikeouts through his two perfect innings. Expect Hendriks to get some well-deserved rest Sunday, especially with another doubleheader ahead of him on Monday.
  • Taylor Rogers was back in the closer chair for the Twins Saturday night, punching his fourth save of the season even after allowing two earned runs off two hits. Hansel Robles allowed one run to score off two hits of his own in the eighth inning on his way to his ninth hold of the year.
  • The Brewers and Nationals saved their bullpens for the second game of their doubleheader, combining to use eight relievers in the nightcap while using just one during the day game. Daniel Hudson was credited with the loss in the second game, giving up three runs off two walks and a hit, and failed to make it out of the sixth inning.
  • Diego Castillo came away with his second win of the season after pitching a scoreless eighth inning for Tampa Bay, while newcomer J.P. Feyereisen picked up his second save as a member of the Rays, pitching a perfect ninth.
  • Rafael Montero picked up his seventh save of the season but didn’t make it easy for himself as he allowed a run to score off two hits before finishing off the game for the Mariners. It should be noted that Keynan Middleton had pitched in the previous two games and should be available on Sunday.
  • Alex Reyes was back out on the mound for the ninth inning, picking up his 15th save of the season for the Cardinals. Reyes pitched around a hit and a walk while collecting two strikeouts during his scoreless appearance.
  • Matt Barnes picked up his twelfth save of the season, though he did allow an earned run off two hits in the process. The four Boston relievers who set up for Barnes each recorded a hold on the day, including Adam Ottavino’s twelfth of the season. Ottavino should see some rest on Sunday after pitching in back-to-back outings for the Red Sox.
