- New additions this week include Robert Stephenson, Emilio Pagan, Jake Newberry, Buck Farmer, Brad Wieck, Jace Fry, and Alex Claudio. Hector Neris was one of the biggest movers this week, and while it remains to be seen if he’ll be the Phillies full -ime closer, he’s used enough at the back end off games to be rostered in most save+hold leagues.
- Leaving the list are Chad Green, Justin Wilson, Chris Devenski, Neil Ramirez, Caleb Ferguson, Dominic Leone, and Nick Burdi. Green’s fall from grace has certainly been one of the more surprising this season. Don’t be surprised if he gets things figured out in Triple-A and is back to his usual self this summer.
- Raisel Iglesias, John Brebbia, David Hernandez, Jordan Hicks, Ryan Brasier, Kirby Yates, Sergio Romo and Victor Alcantara were the weekly leaders in saves+holds with a total of three apiece. Brebbia has picked up where he left off the second half of last season and is becoming a force in that bullpen. Since the last year’s trade deadline, Brebbia has an ERA of 0.64 over 28.2 innings with 37:9 K/BB ratio. It’s great to see the Cardinals trust him late in games now with his five holds matching his 2018 total.
