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.
- Carl Edwards Jr. and Shane Greene return to the list this week following their DL stints as Greene is expected to be activated today. Also joining the list are Collin McHugh, Brandon Kintzler, Daniel Hudson, Brad Ziegler, Oliver Perez, Edgar Santana and Edubray Ramos.
- We lost a total of 9 relievers this week, with the biggest name undoubtedly being Ken Giles. Among the 8 others were Chaz Roe, Addison Reed, Jose Castillo, Heath Hembree, Adam Morgan, Juan Minaya, Jacob Barnes and John Brebbia.
- Scott Alexander and Felipe Vazquez were the only relievers with 4 SV+HD’s this week, while 10 others had 3. Both Alexander and Vazquez have really turned things around since their early-season struggles, with Alexander turning into one of the better setup options out there.
