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 an excellent 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!
- There are 14 teams off on Monday: BAL, DET, KCR, CWS, CLE, OAK, LAA, PHI, ATL, PIT, CHC, MIL, CIN, and COL.
- TOR and BAL finished two seven-inning games are part of a double-header.
- Due to a short outing from Zach Davies, the CHC bullpen had to burn through six RPs to complete the game.
- Connor Seabold only went three innings in his MLB debut, causing extensive usage of the bullpen.
- Baltimore Orioles optioned RHP Marcos Diplán to Norfolk (Triple-A East).
- Kansas City Royals recalled RHP Scott Blewett from Omaha (Triple-A East).
- Los Angeles Dodgers sent RHP Neftali Feliz outright to Oklahoma City (Triple-A West).
- St Louis Cardinals reinstated RHP Justin Miller from the 10-day IL.
- Chris Stratton tossed a clean frame on his way to picking up his fourth save of the season. Pittsburgh continues to make things a guessing game because co-closer David Bednar hadn’t pitched in four days. Either way, if you’re harboring either of these RPs for saves, you’re likely in a real tough spot or the deepest of the league, and praying today is the day your guy gets called upon.
- Josh Hader was part of the Milwaukee no-hitter as he closed out the ninth. As usual, he was spectacular and only needed nine pitches to collect the final three outs that included two Ks. The 31st save of his season moves Hader into a three-way tie for fourth place among the saves leaderboard. He will be available to add to such a total tonight.
- After a monumental meltdown by Sergio Romo, Rangers’ closer Joe Barlow swooped in to notch his fifth save of the season. Right behind Barlow was Spencer Patton to pick up his ninth hold, and both Barlow/Patton has been a decent 1-2 punch for a bullpen that was in total disarray.
- Going back to Oakland for a moment, Andrew Chafin recorded a miserable outing that lasted less than an inning. His lone hit was an HR given up to Leody Taveras before he quickly got the hook. Until last night, Chafin had been excellent, and he will remain the Oakland closer as we advance.
- Giovanny Gallegos grabbed yet another save on Saturday night. The occasion marks his third save in four nights. Due to the high usage rates of Gallegos, there is a good chance he is unavailable tonight. If an opportunity presents itself, look for the redbirds to call upon Luis García and his 99-mph fastball for the save.
- Toronto and Baltimore played a double-header, but the only notable bullpen performance came from Jordan Romano. He pitched a clean ninth inning and dropped his ERA to 2.45 as he notched his 17th save of the season.
- The Giants jumped out to an early lead, and things got out of hand quickly. This led to them turning the ball over to Caleb Baragar in the seventh inning, and he never gave it back. Baragar yielded only three hits and a run before notching his second save on the season throughout his three innings of work. The entire Giants bullpen got a much-needed September night off.
- The Diamondbacks and Mariners did very little in the latter part of their game, and both teams gave up zero runs in the final three innings. J.B. Wendelken got some work in (nine pitches), but otherwise, a very sleepy evening in Seattle.
- In a duel of the Sox, the game needed extra innings for someone to be crowned. Garrett Whitlock pitched a clean eighth and ninth inning before Josh Taylor painted the town red and notched his first save of the season. To make matters worse for Chicago, both Craig Kimbrel and Liam Hendriks saw the mound and will likely be unavailable tonight. With so many RPs going the last two nights, Ryan Tepera is the freshest and should be the lead candidate for any save opportunities.
- The Dodgers used Kenley Jansen and Blake Treinen once again last night. The duo collected another save and hold as they squeaked by the Padres. This marked his third night in a row for pitching for Jansen, and he will likely not be active for tonight. Alex Vesia or Phil Bickford is the most likely bullpen arms available should someone be needed to close out the ninth inning.
