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.

NOTES

  • We welcome back Sean Doolittle, Andrew Miller, Corey Knebel, Richard RodriguezNate Jones and Koda Glover to the list as well as newcomers Ty Buttrey and Jose Alvarez. Falling off the list we have Keone Kela, Bud Norris, Matt Barnes, Adam Cimber, Ryan Madson, Brad Peacock, Paul Fry, and Xavier Cedeno.
  • Roberto Osuna, Joakim Soria, and Brad Ziegler were the only relievers with 4 SV+HD’s this week. Despite the 4 holds, Soria’s ERA for the week was over 8, and his ERA over the past month, in fact, is 8.31. There’s some bad luck involved but with Corey Knebel pitching well again, his hold opportunities could start diminishing.

Greg Holland has been nothing short of a revelation over the past 30 days. 0.71 ERA and WHIP? This must be a typo. Nope. And 2 Wins to go with those 5 SV+H! He is trying to portray a top 20 RP here. Are we not buying it?
