Following up on our weekly Closers and Holds articles will be our Top 100 RP’s for SV+HD leagues every Friday. Use this list to get a feel for the current reliever market and to gauge value for trades, waiver adds, etc. Keep in mind, holds are much more volatile and harder to predict. We’ve only seen one season from a pitcher with more than 30 holds since 2016, while 26 closers have gone over 30 saves in that same timeframe.
- Joining or re-joining the list this week we have Jeurys Familia and Juan Nicasio back from injury as well as new additions Ryan Pressly, Scott Alexander, Emilio Pagan, Adam Conley, Jose Castillo, John Brebbia and Diego Castillo.
- We lost a total of 9 relievers this week, including closers Brandon Morrow and Hunter Strickland to injury as well as Bruce Rondon, Sam Freeman, Heath Hembree, Hector Neris, Luis Garcia, Alex Claudio and Zach Duke.
- Adam Ottavino was the only reliever with 4 SV+HD’s this week, while ten others had 3. Mark Melancon totaled 3 this week, and after getting a save chance and converting yesterday may be finally working back into the role.
