Matt Collins

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

We are now just six days away from the trade deadline. Obviously, Brad Ziegler had already been dealt this month, and there was another major trade just yesterday, but there should be more to come between now and the next time we speak. As always, keep up to date with the moves with the closer grid, with the recent changes highlighted in yellow. Now, on to the news.

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

We’re coming off a three-day week in the baseball world, but there was still plenty of closer news to unwrap. As always, you can keep up with the changes in real time with the closer grid. The recent changes are highlighted in yellow. Now, on to the news.

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

Baseball is taking its midsummer break this week, which means that fantasy will be on pause for a few days as well. That doesn’t mean there’s no closer news, though. There’s always closer news. You cannot escape the closer news no matter how hard you may try. This past week was just a tad busy, so we’ll get right to it. As always, keep up with the changes with the closer grid. The changes since last week are highlighted in yellow. Let’s go.

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

As you get over your hangover after a long holiday weekend, you can be comforted by the fact that there was actually quite a bit going down in the world of closers last week. We had trades, injuries and returns of injuries in addition to normal notable performances. As always, you can keep up with the action on the closer grid, and the changes over the week are highlighted in yellow. Let’s get to it.

Closer Report: Week 13

Matt Collins

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

We’re back to some semi-interesting news over the last week, with one of the top closers taken this spring being ousted from his role. Additionally, we have some injury return news as well as a few updates on our favorite situations. As always, keep up with everything on the closer grid. Quick programming note on the grid, I have recently moved to a new apartment and haven’t had WiFi all weekend, which is why I’ve been slow to update it. It should be back up to regular pace on Wednesday. Now, on to the news.

Matt Collins

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

After a handful of exciting weeks in a row on the closer front, we’re coming off a seven-day stretch in which next to nothing happened. The bad news is that there aren’t many options on the waiver wire that are all that much attractive as they were last week. The good news is that this gives me a little time to talk about some guys I haven’t had a chance to this year. As always, you can keep up with changes on the closer grid. Now, on to the news…

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

We’re now a little more than a third of the way through the season, and the closer action is finally starting to pick up. There were multiple changes over the last week, and as always you can keep up with these shifts on the closer grid. Now, on to the news.

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

Somehow it’s already June, and it seems there is finally some actual action coming our way on the closer front. It still seems like a relatively quiet year in this regard, but there has been some moving and shaking this week. As always, you can check out the closer grid here, and the changes since last week are highlighted. Let’s get to it.

Matt Collins

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

Not a whole lot happened on the closer front this past week, but that doesn’t mean we have nothing to talk about. There’s a lot of uncertainty to be straightened out over the next couple of days, and it’s important to try to stay one step ahead of everyone in your league. It’s the welcome-back-from-the-DL version of the Closer Report. You can keep up with the changes with the closer grid, and as always the changes since last week are highlighted yellow.

Updating the Tiers: Relief Pitchers

Bret Sayre

Reranking the closers, factoring in their early-season performances.

Welcome, to Baseball Prospectus’ first (or at least first time in a long time) in-season rankings update to our preseason positional tiers article. As we did during the preseason, players at each position will be divided into five tiers, represented by a “star” rating. In addition, unlike with the preseason “star” ratings, these lists can also be viewed as a straight ranking.

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

We had a closer change this week, a couple of rough stretches from two bullpens on bad teams and a rather exciting unit that caught my eye recently. As always, you can keep up with the latest moves with my closer grid. To the report!

Closer Report: Week Seven

Matt Collins

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

Although there weren’t any concrete changes in the closer landscape this week, it was a very interesting time in Reliever Land with respect to speculation. We may be reaching the breaking point with some of the struggling ninth-inning men around the league. As always, you can keep up with everyone’s movement with the closer grid. Now, to the news.
