Bullpen Depth Charts: Relievers To Stream — 6/13

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 following teams are slated to have a day off Monday and may be slightly more aggressive with their late-inning options knowing they have a built-in rest day upcoming – NYY, HOU, TEX, ATL
  • If you are looking to steal a win of the waiver wire today, there’s not a ton of games to speculate on, unfortunately. If I had to pick one, I’d go with Ashton Goudeau or Heath Hembree in Cincinnati, with one or both likely following Tony Santillan who will be making his MLB debut at home against the Rockies.






Yesterday’s Performances

  • After Pete Fairbanks picked up the save for the Rays Friday, the team turned back to Diego Castillo yesterday in the ninth as he converted his 11th save of the season. The Rays will always keep you guessing, but Castillo is still the best bet to close out games.
  • Both Rafael Dolis and Jordan Romano worked in non save/hold situations yesterday, with Dolis allowing another run in the eighth inning and Romano working a clean ninth. Even with Dolis likely off today, Romano should still be the team’s closer moving forward.


  • Aroldis Chapman was charged with his second loss of the season, allowing a hit in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Phillies beat the Yankees. It hasn’t been the best week for Chapman, but it was good to see his velocity back up around 99 MPH. Zack Britton also made his 2021 debut in this one, picking up a strikeout over a clean inning of work.
  • James Karinchak picked up the win in extra innings for Cleveland, as he pitched the tenth inning, allowing no baserunners while striking out two. It’s worth noting that Emmanuel Clase hasn’t pitched since Tuesday and only has two appearances in the month of June as the team looks to limit his usage given his injury history.


  • The Royals were blown out by Athletics yesterday, but potential “closer” Josh Staumont threw a clean inning in the eighth. The Royals will likely mimic the Rays as they keep us guessing as to who will close out games, but Staumont was doing a fine job in the role before hitting the IL.
  • The Twins went with Hansel Robles in the eighth inning of yesterday’s game, leaving Taylor Rogers to close things out in the ninth as he worked a perfect inning while adding two K’s. Rogers is likely out for today’s game, so Robles could be in line for a save if a chance should arise.


  • Raisel Iglesias allowed another HR yesterday, but he was still able to hold on and collect his 11th save of the season. Iglesias has been hot and cold this year, but I still see more good than bad to trust him going forward. He’ll likely get the day off today, leaving Mike Mayers for a potential save chance.
  • Rafael Montero was given a chance to close out Cleveland yesterday with Kendall Graveman working the eighth inning. Montero went on to allow three earned runs and blow the save, potentially opening the door for Graveman to get back into the closer role


  • With Yimi García getting the day off, Miami turned to Dylan Floro for a save opportunity yesterday, which he converted with relative ease. Floro is likely off today, and García should be back in case the Marlins are able to sweep the Braves.
  • Edwin Díaz’s fine season continues, as he picked up a four-out save against the Padres yesterday for his 11th save of the season. After working Friday’s game too, he will likely be off today, so expect either Seth Lugo or perhaps Trevor May to function as the team’s closer if needed.


  • Héctor Neris was charged with his fourth blown save of the year, allowing three earned runs in the ninth against the Yankees yesterday. His grasp on the closer role shouldn’t be in danger as of yet, but Archie Bradley did work a clean 10th inning to pick up the win.
  • Brad Hand pitched in not one, but two games yesterday as he picked up a save in game one of the doubleheader and then worked an inning in game two. He’ll almost certainly be out today, with Tanner Rainey or Wander Suero potentially in line for a save chance with Daniel Hudson now on the IL.


  • Josh Hader picked up his second save in two days yesterday, and will likely get a day off to rest today. In his absence, expect Brad Boxberger to fill in as the team’s closer should the team need someone to close out the Pirates.
  • Alex Reyes got some work in the seventh inning of yesterday’s game against the Cubs despite the team trailing by five runs. It was his first inning of work in a week, so the team was just likely trying to keep him fresh.


  • Similar to Reyes, the Pirates got Richard Rodríguez an inning of work in yesterday’s loss as he too hadn’t pitched in a week. As long as he remains the Pirates closer, Rodriguez will remain a hit or miss closer option in H2H leagues.
  • Craig Kimbrel was called upon to get a one-out save yesterday, and while he only threw three pitches, it’s quite possibly the team gives the veteran a day off after he pitched in Friday’s game as well. I wouldn’t completely rule him out, but if he is given the day off, expect Ryan Tepera to fill in.


  • Both Jake McGee and Tyler Rogers threw in game two of yesterday’s doubleheader, with Rogers working the 6th inning and McGee the 7th inning. It’s obviously too early to declare their roles have changed, but I think we need to consider San Francisco’s closer job as a committee.
  • Arizona turned to Joakim Soria for their first save chance in quite a while. Soria went on to allow three earned runs on four hits to cough up the lead. This remains a bullpen to steer clear of.
