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!
- With only six games on Monday and one week left in the season, we could expect to see potential playoff teams really push their bullpen this weekend. Relievers who have pitched on back-to-back days (therefore RED) may still pitch today.
- Tampa Bay Rays optioned LHP Dietrich Enns to Durham (Triple-A East). Recalled LHP Josh Fleming from Durham.
- St Louis Cardinals placed RHP Justin Miller on the 10-day IL and sent RHP Jordan Hicks to Memphis (Triple-A East) on a rehab assignment.
- Baltimore Orioles placed RHP Tyler Wells on the 10-day IL.
- Philadelphia Phillies placed RHP Archie Bradley on the 10-day IL.
- Toronto Blue Jays placed RHP Joakim Soria on the COVID-19 related IL.
- Milwaukee Brewers placed RHP Jake Cousins on the 10-day IL.
- In a non-save opportunity, Ryan Pressly struggled to keep Oakland’s bats quiet. Elvis Andrus singled before Starling Marte doubled, driving in Andrus for the winning run. Pressly took his third loss of the season and will look for redemption tonight as he only threw ten pitches in Saturday night’s debacle. Kendall Graveman tossed 30 pitches, which could make him unavailable for tonight.
- On the other side of the diamond, Oakland’s Lou Trivino tossed a flawless inning before closer Andrew Chafin made quick work of the Astros in the ninth. Both pitchers only threw nine pitches each and will be available for action. Chafin is available in 77% of Yahoo leagues and has four saves in September with a 1.32 ERA for those still chasing saves.
- Luis Severino looked dominant in his two-inning performance that showcased four strikeouts as he collected his first win of the season. The Yankees will slow-roast Severino for the remainder of the season and build up his pitch count each time out. In his first appearance, he threw 30 pitches, and last night Severino went 37. He will be a great source of cultured wins in his multi-inning RP role. Aroldis Chapman struggled in his appearance but managed to collect his 29th save of the season.
- Last night, Tanner Houck and Darwinzon Hernandez imploded as they combined for two innings pitched with four earned runs. The biggest issue for Houck was the loss of command, which led to four walks. Unfortunately, the only hit between the duo was a Giancarlo Stanton grand slam that put New York on top late.
- Michael Fulmer picked up his 12th save of the season and fourth since September 15th. The newfound closer has been spectacular as of late by not allowing an earned run in his last nine appearances. Since returning from an IL stint on July 27th, Fulmer sports a 26.3% K-rate and 1.63 ERA. He was a popular pickup last week, yet still available in 69% of Yahoo leagues.
- The Tampa Bay Rays clinched their second consecutive AL East title on the back of Shane McClanahan. Additionally, the team used Collin McHugh, who struggled mightily by allowed five hits and two earned runs over 1.1 innings pitched. J.P. Feyereisen picked up his 15th hold before Pete Fairbanks closed out the final frame to preserve the win.
- After a quick three-inning start from Chris Ellis, the Orioles relied on four relievers to pick up the team’s 50th win of the season. Due to some late-inning heroics with bats, Baltimore’s Brooks Kriske was awarded his second win before Dillon Tate solidified his third save of the season. Before you go scooping up Tate for saves, Cole Sulser had pitched back-to-back games and received the night off. He will remain the closer as the season draws to an end.
- Cleveland blanked the Chicago White Sox as Eli Morgan tossed a one-hit gem over six innings. Former SP Sam Hentges pitched two innings of scoreless baseball before Bryan Shaw recorded tied a bow on the game. The trio of Cleveland pitches only allowed three total hits on the evening and gave the rest of the bullpen a much-needed breather.
- Brad Boxberger collected his 23rd hold before Josh Hader slammed the door for the 34th save of the season. The duo only allowed two base runners while striking out a pair of batters. In a relatively quiet game for scoring, the Brewers’ bullpen remains one of the best in the bigs with a 28% K-rate and 3.69 SIERA.
- The Mets bullpen was effective as Aaron Loup, Trevor May, and Seth Lugo pitched scoreless frames. However, due to the lackluster performance from the bats, none of these pitchers factored into the game’s decision.
- The Los Angeles Angels shellacked Tyler Anderson for nine runs over two innings of work. However, they didn’t stop there as Justus Sheffield and Yohan Ramirez each got touched up for multiple earned runs. Due to the onslaught of early runs, the Seattle bullpen scaled back and used no one of fantasy relevance. Drew Steckenrider, Paul Sewald, and Diego Castillo are well-rested for tonight’s action.
- The Angels’ Jaime Barría only pitched two innings due to injury before handing the ball over to Jhonathan Diaz for the final seven innings of work. The entire Angels bullpen received the night off and will be hungry for action tonight.
- Atlanta and San Diego needed extra innings to decided the outcome of late night’s game. After Mark Melancon blew his sixth save of the season, Daniel Hudson allowed two more runs in the 10th as the Padres surrendered the match. Melancon has been very shaky as of late and allowed runs in five of his last six outings. Terrible timing for fantasy managers banking on his production.
- Huascar Ynoa was a disaster on the Braves’ side and only went two-inning before giving up seven earned runs. The implosion prompted Atlanta to throw six relievers to navigate the comeback victory. Richard Rodríguez was the right-place-right-time RP accredited the win, and Will Smith tossed a clean ninth inning for his 34th save.
- In Cincinnati, Mychal Givens notched his fourth save of the season with a clean final frame. Michael Lorenzen, Lucas Sims, and Givens have pitched on Friday and Saturday night. All three could be unavailable for tonight’s action. However, the bullpen is gassed, and it’ll be anyone’s guess as to who would vulture the save chance.
