Bullpen Depth Charts: Relievers To Stream — 6/3

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

  • Rainouts in Ohio mean that 10 teams had the day off yesterday: DET, KC, LAA, MIL, PIT, and SFG were scheduled off, while PHI/CIN and CHW/CLE were postponed — the Reds will host the Phillies on June 28th, when both teams were scheduled to be off, and Cleveland will host a split doubleheader on September 23rd.
  • Today is also a scheduled day off for six teams: BAL, TOR, CLE, OAK, PHI, and LAD. That makes two days in a row off for Cleveland and Philly!


  • Tucker Davidson is picking up a spot start for Atlanta, and Elieser Hernandez will pick up his first start of the year for Miami. Both could be limited in pitch count and force somewhat more bullpen action.



Yesterday’s Performances

  • Edwin Díaz redeemed himself in Arizona after a blown save yesterday and notched his 10th save of the year. That does mean he’s pitched back-to-back, though — Trevor May is rested and is the clear pick should the Mets have something to protect late.
  • Aroldis Chapman also picked up a save in a back-to-back outing for that other New York team. Jonathan Loaisiga and Chad Green have also appeared in back-to-back games for a taxed Yankees bullpen, so picking who appears ahead of time will be tough.


  • Brad Hand picked up save number nine on HIS second night in a row — Daniel Hudson also appeared in the past two days, so Wander Suero or Kyle Finnegan could be the Nats relievers to get a shot in Atlanta tonight.
  • Colorado’s Daniel Bard has also (get this!) pitched on back-to-back nights, picking up two strikeouts and his sixth save while protecting a three-run lead in Coors against the Rangers. Some combination of Mychal Green and Yency Almonte could be called upon in late innings with both Bard and Carlos Estévez likely unavailable after going back-to-back. That also means that four of the five closers to pick up saves came from pitchers who should be off today!


  • Ryan Pressly appeared for the second time since his short injury scare and for the first time since throwing 38 pitches three days ago. He gave up two hits but still protected a 2-1 lead against the Red Sox to secure his 8th save.
  • Yimi García was the lone closer on the night to not have it, but his line makes it look worse than it was —  two intentional walks with the game tied wouldn’t have changed the score — but he still surrendered three hits to open the inning before a walk-off sac fly sealed the win for Toronto. The entire Marlins bullpen is well-rested right now, including Garcia — his record probably means he would get another shot tonight against the Pirates.


  • After the Orioles gave Matt Harvey just three innings and 43 pitches of work on limited rest, Tyler Wells gave up just one hit in three innings of long-relief work, earning the win. Co-closer Paul Fry took the mound with a four-run lead and a runner on third in the 8th, so his 1.2 innings of work don’t count as a save. Nonetheless, expect him to be off today after 31 pitches of work last night.
