- Only three new additions this week, which include Scott Barlow, Buck Farmer, and Carlos Estevez. Barlow is the biggest new name on the list as he has been a revelation for the Royals bullpen this season. Shawn Kelley and Carlos Martinez may both be back with their respective teams this weekend and would slot somewhere into the top half of Tier 4.
- Leaving the list are Julio Urias, Trevor Hildenberger and Seung-Hwan Oh. Urias is on administrative leave after his arrest Monday night, while Hildenberger was sent to Triple-A following his latest meltdown Wednesday. Oh has been a disaster this year, with a 3.14 HR/9 with an ERA over 10.
- Zack Britton was the only reliever to notch four saves+holds this week while Aroldis Chapman, Diego Castillo, Luke Jackson, and Pedro Baez each had three apiece. May has been much better for Britton with him having a .222 OBP against over 7.1 innings pitched, compared with the .346 over 12 innings in March/April. Five of his nine holds have also come in May.
