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!
- Chicago White Sox activated Ryan Tepera from the 10-day injured list.
- Cleveland Indians recalled James Karinchak from Columbus Clippers.
- The Red Sox turned to Hansel Robles to protect a two-run lead in the ninth last night, and Robles was able to convert the save despite walking two batters. He’s likely to remain the Sox closer moving forward and has not allowed a run over his last 12.2 IP.
- Andrew Kittredge was called on to close out the Yankees last night, and despite allowing four hits and two runs was able to convert his eighth save of the season. Kittredge has now allowed six hits and three earned runs since returning from the IL, but still seems like the Rays favorite for saves once the postseason starts.
- Lou Trivino picked up his first save since August 20th last night and may be in line to end the season as the A’s closer. After a rough August and start to September, Trivino has allowed just one run over his last twelve innings of work. With most of this bullpen potentially headed to free agency, Trivino should be considered the early favorite for the closer role in Oakland next season.
- Carlos Estévez shut down the Diamondbacks yesterday for his eleventh save of the year. It’s been a rollercoaster of a season for Estévez but he’s pitched well enough as the teams closer to be considered the favorite for the role heading into next year.
- Camilo Doval picked up his third save this week as he shut down the Padres offense while striking out two. Since being recalled back in early September, Doval has yet to allow a run over 13.1 innings while having an 18/3 K/BB ratio. Jake McGee could be back by the time their playoff series begins, but the Giants may find it hard to remove Doval from the closer role the way he’s throwing right now.
- Kenley Jansen recorded his 38th save of the year last night, which now ties him with Mark Melancon for the MLB saves lead. With just two days left in the season, it looks like we won’t see a 40 save closer in a full 162 game season for the first time since 1982.
