The season is coming down to the wire and just about every league is set to begin the playoffs. It’s do or die time; let’s see where we stand in the final edition of The Hold Up for the 2015 season.
TIER 1: Cream of the Crop – This group is the cream of the crop. Ample opportunity for holds, high K-rates and low ERA’s make these guys a must own in any Holds league.
1. Dellin Betances (Yankees)
2. Tony Watson (Pirates)
3. Wade Davis (Royals)
. Joe Smith (Angels)
5. Sergio Romo (Giants)
6. Kevin Siegrist (Cardinals) +1
7. Pat Neshek (Astros)
TIER 2: Solid Performers – All excellent relievers, but whether it be their role or consistency, they aren’t quite on that elite level.
8. Drew Storen (Nationals) +1
10. Jim Johnson (Dodgers) +1
11. Joakim Soria (Pirates) +1
12.Aaron Sanchez (Blue Jays) +1
13. Will Smith (Brewers) +6
14. Joaquin Benoit (Padres)
15. Keone Kela (Rangers)
16. Pedro Strop (Cubs)
17. Jeremy Jeffress (Brewers) +3
18. Justin Wilson (Yankees)
19. Tyler Clippard (Mets)
There is some potential for holds from this group, however don’t bet the farm on them being among the league leaders.
20. Jared Hughes (Pirates)
22. Zach Duke (White Sox)
23. Kyle Barraclough (Marlins) UNRANKED
24. Arquímedes Caminero (Pirates)
25. Darren O’Day (Orioles)
