The Adjuster

Relief Pitchers

by Eric Roseberry


The final edition of the Adjuster for 2017 will focus on relievers. Specifically, we’ll look at relievers you should pay extra attention to if your league uses holds as a category. There are several ways you can go about choosing the middle relievers you’ll focus on in a fantasy draft.

  • You could put the names of every reliever in a bowl and pull a few out.
  • You could put the names of a few relievers on a dart board and see which ones you hit.
  • You could ask your child’s Magic 8 Ball regarding specific relievers.

Oh wait, you came to Baseball Prospectus because you wanted fantasy advice informed by statistical analysis. Here’s the best advice I can give you.
