The Hold Up: Top 100 Relievers for Holds in 2024

Ranking baseball's top setup options for the 2024 season.

Welcome back to The Hold Up, where we’ll take a look at some relief pitchers who are worth targeting in leagues that value Holds. While SV-only leagues are still the standard format, Holds leagues are a ton of fun and really open up the reliever player pool to some of the more underappreciated relievers in baseball.

If you think a name is missing, know that anyone whom I project to earn the bulk of the saves for their respective teams can be found in the Saves rankings article, as well as on the SV+HOLDS list. Also, anyone who is competing for a rotation spot or expected to open the season on the injury list was left off for the time being.

My personal strategy when it comes to holds, especially at draft time, is to put a priority on the high-upside relievers over the safer, floor types. In reality, “safe” and “reliever” are like oil and water anyway. I’ll take a chance on someone who has shown an ability to miss bats at a high rate early on in the season and adjust as the year goes on.

With that being said, let’s get to the player notes and rankings!
