DobberBaseball's Top 50 Relief Pitchers for April...

 

 

The rating assigned to each player represents his value in a keeper league.

 

The list of relievers is based on Saves, Ks, ERA and WHIP. Though relievers do pick up some wins throughout the season, they can be entirely random; just assume a closer will give you roughly five wins each year. Other criteria include Age, Upside, Injury Risk, Likelihood of Closing and Development Status.

... yes actually, there was something wrong. after the formulas were adjusted properly Romo would rank in the 3 hole.

... Ummm....is there something wrong with the rankings that are being displayed? It said it was updated on April 22nd but shows Romo dropping 7 spots to 16. Either this is a mistake or I'll never visit this list again because Romo is clearly elite.

Chapman? Thanks for the update. Now that Chapman has been confirmed to close, he should probably make the list, and quite highly I would expect.

Wilhelmsen/League Wilhelmsen definitely makes the list and could be a very low-key option for managers on draft day. Wilhelmsen did a marvelous job last year and should definitely be considered in every fantasy format. League is also a solid option and should provide Kenley Jansen with the necessary time to ease himself back into the Dodgers' relief corp.

Seattle With League on the Dodgers, do Wilhelmsen or Pryor make the list?

Bard - Are you kidding I could see listing Daniel Bard at the beginning of the season, but since his Rick Ankiel type meltdown and subsequent demotion to the minors where he continues to hit and walk numerous batters there is absolutley no way he should be listed in the top 50 relievers. His last outing in the minors he walked two, threw two wild pitches and hit a batter in one inning.
