Welcome to one of our many new features this season, the Daily Bullpen Chart. This will bring you up-to-date bullpen depth charts every morning for that day’s games and makes for a great tool for those of you looking to stream saves or wins. This year, I’d expect even more save and win vultures as team’s adapt to the condensed season so be sure to check in with us every morning.
- Being the first game of the season for most teams, closers are all ready to go for opening day. The Giants and Dodgers used a total of 9 relievers last night, but most should be ready to go today if needed.
- With mostly aces going tonight, there aren’t a ton of streaming options for those looking to vulture wins. One name that seems safe would be Marcus Walden, as Nathan Eovaldi only went more than 5 innings twice last season. With a matchup against Tommy Milone and the Orioles, I like the Red Sox chances of picking up a win.
- Ross Stripling may also be limited tonight as he makes his way back into the rotation. Brusdar Graterol, Caleb Ferguson, or perhaps Dennis Santana could be the first out of the pen if Stripling can only go 4-5 innings against the Giants.
