  • We have six new additions this week, which include Matt Magill, John Brebbia, A.J. Puk,  Jose Alvarez, Jose Urena, and Hector Rondon. Magill is back to getting save opportunities in Seattle after missing some time with a back injury and seems likely to see the bulk of the chances over Anthony Bass.
  • Leaving the list are Andres Munoz, Felipe Vazquez, Sam Dyson, Tim Mayza, Blake Treinen, and Pedro Strop. Munoz has been shut down for the rest of the season but could be a huge contributor in 2020. Treinen and Strop will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing seasons next year.
  • We saw eight pitchers this week pick up three SV+HLDs: Tyler Duffey, Kevin Ginkel, Josh Hader, Raisel Iglesias, Carlos Martinez, Taylor Rogers, Sergio Romo, and Brandon Workman. Outside of maybe the Twins relievers here, Ginkel comes as the biggest surprise this week. The 25-year-old rookie has more than held his own in his first 20 innings at the MLB level, compiling eight SV+HLDs to go with a 1.74 ERA, .97 WHIP and a K/9 north of 10.

    I came here to read a comment about Vazquez.

    Ottavino has been garbage for a little while now. Not sure if it is indicative of a real problem but he has been killing me.

    Petit has been nails lately but it hasn’t resulted in H+S – same is mostly true of Gallegos. Has Gallegos not been one of the top RP in baseball this year? I feel like he has been. It’s a shame that they don’t hand him a bigger role. I see he has some funky luck (BABIP, strand rate) helping him out but he does pretty well on his own too. I get that I am discussing something different than what these rankings represent.
