Relief pitcher Rankings
I’m not quite as concerned with trades wreaking havoc on the closer rankings as I typically am at this point. There will probably be only so many sellers in advance of the deadline, and most of the contenders seem fairly well set in the ninth. The Rangers and Diamondbacks might have the most interest in upgrading if the opportunity arises. The Royals will surely part with Aroldis Chapman and maybe Scott Barlow, too. I’m guessing the Pirates will hold on to David Bednar even if they do some selling elsewhere. If Liam Hendriks can return from elbow inflammation in the second half of July, he could quickly become the most interesting name out there. Perhaps the Cardinals will part with either Jordan Hicks or Giovanny Gallegos if they can’t get back into the NL Central mix.
In light of the possibility of the Royals trading both Barlow and Chapman, I’d like to have a third Kansas City reliever listed here. However, Taylor Clarke has been awful of late, and Austin Cox is going to the rotation, as he should. Maybe Carlos Hernández will step up, but there’s probably no reason to speculate on another Royals reliever at the moment.
The Nationals have been using Kyle Finnegan earlier in games, with Hunter Harvey typically being held in reserve for save chances, but I’m still giving Finnegan the edge here for now. He has a 1.45 ERA in his last 16 appearances, and I just don’t trust Harvey to stay healthy. I’d have Finnegan a few spots higher, but there is a good chance he’ll be traded to a team that would use him as a setup man.
