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.

Closer Report: Week 12

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…

Matt Collins

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.

Matt Collins

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.

Closer Report: Week Nine

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.

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.

Closer Report: Week Six

Matt Collins

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

It was a relatively slow week for closers, with very few notable blowups and even less moving and shaking among the ninth-inning ranks. There are a few notable stories for the week ahead any beyond, though. Before we get to that, however, last week a commenter asked me to put together a ranking, and I obliged. You can find it here. The star divides represent tiers. You’ll notice that there is no analysis provided for any of the picks, as I didn’t have time to write all of that up. If you have any questions about the ranking, drop them in the comments and I’ll get back to you. Additionally, my updated closer grid is here. As always, the changes since last week are highlighted in yellow. Now, to the report!

Matt Collins

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

Welcome back to the Closer Report. We’re a month into the season, and there hasn’t been a ton of major movement in bullpens thus far. Without doing any research on this matter, it feels as if there should be a lot of movement over the next few weeks, as bad performances start to look more permanent. Here is the updated closer grid. As always, changes since last week are highlighted. To the news!

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

Welcome back to the Closer Report. There’s finally a little bit of action happening on the Closer Carousel, which you can see in a semi-active Closer Grid. As always, the changes since last week’s posting are in yellow.

Week Two was another relatively quiet week on the closer front, though there was one big injury and a few noteworthy performances. The updated closer grid can be found here. Let’s get to it.

Closer Report: Week Two

Matt Collins

Surveying the ninth-inning situations around the league.

We’re one week into the season and, unsurprisingly, not a whole lot has happened in the world of closers. There have been a few changes, but most of the news has been more speculative than concrete. Here is the up-to-date closer grid, with the changes made since last week’s publishing highlighted in yellow.
