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 a great 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!
- The New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies had a rare scheduled Friday off, so both of their bullpens should be rested up for the weekend.
- San Francisco and Washington are set to play a double header Saturday to make up for their rain out on Thursday.
- The following teams are slated to have a day off Monday, and may be slightly more aggressive with their late inning options knowing they have a built-in rest day upcoming – NYY, HOU, TEX, ATL
- Cincinnati Reds placed Tejay Antone on the 10-day injured list retroactive to June 8 with right forearm inflammation.
- Seattle Mariners activated Kendall Graveman from the 10-day injured list and optioned Keynan Middleton to Tacoma.
- Houston Astros placed Enoli Paredes on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder strain.
- Craig Kimbrel notched his 16th save of the season, pitching a perfect ninth inning for the Cubs on Friday. He needed just nine pitches to get threw the three batters he faced and should be available Saturday despite pitching in two of the last three days.
- After a Thursday rain out and a complete game by starter Anthony DeSclafani, the Giants’ bullpen should be fully rested for their double header Saturday.
- Edwin Diaz collected his 11th save on the year as he recorded the final four outs in the Mets’ one run victory over the Padres Friday. The Mets do not have a scheduled day off until Thursday, June 24th so despite Diaz’ lack of recent usage, he may see plenty of opportunities in the next two weeks.
- Jordan Romano was unavailable for the Blue Jays with reported forearm tightness. Rafael Dolis was given the ball in the bottom of the ninth in an attempt to push their tie ballgame with Boston into extra innings. Dolis only faced two batters and threw just seven pitches before giving up the walk off single to Alex Verdugo. It was Dolis’ second loss on the year. The Blue Jays late inning bullpen situation continues to live in a state of flux, but look for Dolis to be given another shot soon if Romano stays out.
- Pete Fairbanks recorded his second save of the season with a perfect ninth inning, with J.P. Feyereisen playing the role of set up man in the eighth inning. Feyereisen collected his 11th hold while Andrew Kittredge picked up his fourth with a perfect 7th inning performance as the first man out of the Tampa Bay bullpen Friday. With Diego Castillo having pitched back-to-back outings on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week this looks to just be an example of the Rays going with their most rested arms late in the game.
- Liam Hendriks put up his third blown save of the season after allowing a two run home run off the bat of Daz Cameron to ultimately tie the game and send it into extra innings. With the help of a Yoán Moncada sac fly and Aaron Bummer’s scoreless outing in the tenth, Hendriks was able to walk away with the win, while Bummer collected his second save of the year. José Cisnero was credited with the loss for the Tigers, though did not give up a hit or an earned run as the runner to score off Moncada’s sac fly was the extra inning inherited runner.
- Yimi Garcia collected two strikeouts and pitched around a hit and a walk to record his 11th save of the year for the Marlins. The outing marks back-to-back days for Garcia, who has combined to throw 31 pitches between the two outings and should expect to be rested Saturday. Dylan Floro needed 22 pitches of his own Friday, so there’s a good chance Anthony Bass is given the ball again on Saturday if the Marlins find themselves with a lead late in the game.
- Ryan Pressly pitched a perfect ninth inning for the Astros, notching his 10th save of the season. Matt Shoemaker was credited with the loss after pitching the final two innings for the Twins, but allowing two runs to score in the top of the ninth. The outing marked Shoemaker’s first relief appearance since July 12th, 2015.
- Josh Hader put up his 15th save of the season, allowing just one hit and collecting two strikeouts in his outing. Hader had not pitched previously since this past Saturday, so though he did through 18 pitches Friday, he should be ready to go today. Milwaukee is another team without a scheduled off day until June 24th, so Hader, as well as the rest of the Brewers’ bullpen, should see plenty of opportunities to pitch in the coming two weeks.
- Raisel Iglesias backed into the win Friday after giving up a home run to Eduardo Escobar in the bottom of the ninth inning to tie the game and send it to extra innings. The Angels found a way to score a run in the tenth to ensure Iglesias would walk away with the win, but still was credited with his third blown save on the year.
- Lou Trivino collected his third win of the season after he was asked to get the final four outs of the game for Oakland. Jake Diekman allowed a game tying home run to Salvador Perez earlier in the eighth inning and thus was credited with his third blown save of the season.
- Scott Barlow was credited with his second loss on the year after also recorded the final four outs of the game for the Royals, but allowing three hits, including an Elvis Andrus walk-off single.
