Soriano, RafaelNLWAS36480.80.22427%8%0.007Flyballs are only risk with the silent assassin
3
Kimbrel, CraigNLATL49450.60.17343%12%0.020He's simply not human
4
Rodney, FernandoALTBA52440.80.23422%12%0.002Regression monster lurks large over the archer's broad shoulders.
5
Rivera, MarianoALNYA50400.80.22425%5%n/aThe swan song for The Hammer of God
6
Motte, JasonNLSLN41401.00.23029%7%0.132Big splits, ugly delivery, but beautiful results
7
Johnson, JimALBAL54400.80.25816%7%0.011Doesn't miss bats, but his bowling ball sinker is great. Career year closers rarely repeat
8
Hanrahan, JoelALBOS42380.90.23327%10%0.101Got wild last season and gave up too many HRs. Has capable arms behind him
9
Perez, ChrisALCLE38380.90.22324%10%0.086Flyballer with splits but misses bats and is tough to square up
10
Reed, AddisonALCHA37381.20.24326%8%0.050Ballpark is risky for the flyballer
11
Papelbon, JonathanNLPHI39380.80.22031%6%0.016Most love to hate the guy, but he's damn good at what he does for fantasy players
12
Wilhelmsen, TomALSEA43360.90.23422%9%0.042Lots to like here - been an ADP bargain so far
13
Putz, J.J.NLARI45350.80.23328%8%0.0083 straight 60+ game seasons for 1st time since mid-00's. Health + skills = yum
14
Nathan, JoeALTEX44351.10.22228%7%0.003Picked up where he left off in 2011 - home park is risky, but not results
15
Grilli, JasonNLPIT42330.70.22729%10%0.073K% up five consecutive seasons, at age 36
16
Holland, GregALKCA46320.80.23527%10%0.0702 straight seasons of >30% K rates; walk rate and splits only worries
17
Axford, JohnNLMIL45320.90.23029%11%0.0093 year averages look better than single-season mess
18
Madson, RyanALANA49300.80.24124%6%n/aUnlikely to start season - skills are good when he is healthy
19
Betancourt, RafaelNLCOL34301.10.24928%6%0.118Splits and a trade risk are only concerns for me. Quiet bargain
20
Marmol, CarlosNLCHN38300.60.18535%15%0.044MarmoLOL will at least get saves but take 10 years off your life in doing so
21
Romo, SergioNLSFN38300.60.21031%6%0.025Always had the stuff and now has jumped all over the opportunity
22
Street, HustonNLSDN41300.80.22429%6%0.005Skills are solid, but health is always a factor. Draft him & Gregerson as a duo
23
Rondon, BruceALDET50281.00.25721%13%0.169Throws 100, but has shown HUGE splits in a limited time in minors. Proceed with caution
24
Perkins, GlenALMIN44281.00.27017%7%0.049Handled the closer role well last year, PECOTA bearish on K%
25
Balfour, GrantALOAK38280.70.21226%9%0.006Steady skills, ballpark forgives flyball tendencies
26
League, BrandonNLLAN57250.80.25021%8%0.084Good skills, but not worthy of three years from any team.
27
Broxton, JonathanNLCIN49250.90.22830%9%0.075Not as good as he once was, but he might have just enough
28
Cishek, SteveNLMIA49240.70.24422%10%0.094Someone has to save games in Miami - he deserves the job again
29
Veras, JoseALHOU42220.90.22725%12%0.040Someone has to save games in Houston…all 15 of them
30
Jansen, KenleyNLLAN36200.70.18041%11%0.002Why in the hell did the Dodgers sign Brandon League?
31
Janssen, CaseyALTOR48181.00.25321%7%0.046If Sergio Santos isn't ready, Janssen remains nice insurance
32
Santos, SergioALTOR42160.80.23128%11%n/aReturning from injury; when healthy, control is only major concern
33
Francisco, FrankNLNYN37160.90.23129%8%0.009Fat Frankie loves his flyballs, but rest of skillset is attractive
34
Parnell, BobbyNLNYN52140.90.25822%9%0.026Lots to like here as well if Francisco slips up
35
Casilla, SantiagoNLSFN4780.70.24822%9%0.068HR/9 rates last 4 seasons: 1.12, 0.33, 0.17, 1.14. As that goes, so goes his success
36
Cook, RyanALOAK4980.90.25617%10%0.009At best, Balfour insurance
37
Frieri, ErnestoALANA3071.10.22625%10%0.105If Madson isn't ready to start the season, the defending champ resumes role with risks
38
Fujikawa, KyujiNLCHN4550.80.20935%8%N/AHe's backing up Carlos Marmol. Hell, I might draft him before Marmol
39
Doolittle, SeanALOAK4250.80.21132%7%0.091Has reverse splits so far as a MLBer so don't treat him as a lefty specialist
40
Benoit, JoaquinALDET3851.20.22827%9%0.020Seemingly every HR he gives up is ill-timed
41
Bailey, AndrewALBOS4240.90.24123%8%0.091Talent around him got much better in off-season. Back of the line
42
Rauch, JonNLMIA3841.00.25820%6%0.086If Cishek can't hold up, Rauch is an option
43
Burton, JaredALMIN4640.90.24919%9%0.081Perkins has better skills and deserves this job, but stash Burton just in case
44
Robertson, DavidALNYA4740.70.21332%10%0.044The heir apparent? Houdini is one of the best in baseball at escaping jams
45
Lopez, JavierNLSFN5730.60.25718%10%0.237Ultimate LOOGY
46
Storen, DrewNLWAS4430.80.23725%7%0.125Takes a back seat to the well-paid Soriano
47
Bell, HeathNLARI4930.80.24725%8%0.078FIP up 3 straight seasons, PECOTA likes a K% rebound
48
Pestano, VinnieALCLE4630.90.22527%9%0.073Great ROOGY but a mere mortal vs LH
49
Strop, PedroALBAL5030.90.24323%11%0.068Live arm, more consistency in zone & conquering Yankee fears final step
50
Melancon, MarkNLPIT5430.80.24323%8%0.064Disastrous 2012 came after allowing 23 ER in 2.2 IP. Was old self outside of that. Target
51
Herrera, KelvinALKCA5231.00.26419%7%0.040Good skills to roster, even if you don't have Greg Holland
52
Venters, JonnyNLATL5930.70.24524%11%0.031Could close on any other team in the game
53
Alburquerque, AlALDET5030.80.21830%12%0.006One skill away and only a rookie in his way (for now)
54
Gregerson, LukeNLSDN5130.80.23126%7%0.002Recovered lost K% from 2011 and backs up a fragile Huston Street. #want
55
Soria, JoakimALTEX4421.00.22727%7%n/aReturning from injury & to a hostile home park with an established closer
56
Coke, PhilALDET4520.90.26319%8%0.133Leyland said Coke is next in line if Rondon fails; Leyland is crazy if he allows this
57
Capps, MattALCLE4221.20.26218%5%0.130Splits, gopheritis, doesn't miss bats. Don't go here
58
Henderson, JimNLMIL4121.10.24625%11%0.117Former Expos (yes, Expos) draftee with live arm. Axford insurance
59
Capps, CarterALSEA4320.70.22328%8%0.106Small sample size success but he's fun to watch pump gas
60
Marshall, SeanNLCIN5120.80.23526%7%0.100Everything is perfect, except for his splits.
61
Hernandez, DavidNLARI3421.00.22627%10%0.095One of the best setup guys in baseball. Keeps ball in yard despite low GB%
62
Dotel, OctavioALDET3821.00.23027%9%0.090Steadily shuts down RH while struggling vs LH. Leyland should go here before Coke
63
Clippard, TylerNLWAS3320.90.21928%10%0.069No reliever has thrown more pitchers than TC over last 4 seasons, tired down stretch
64
Atchison, ScottNLNYN4620.90.25621%7%0.064A lot would need to happen for him to get saves
65
Uehara, KojiALBOS3421.00.23426%5%0.063One of the best relievers. Misses tons of bats, but will leave one up from time to time
66
Rosenthal, TrevorNLSLN5021.00.25421%10%0.057His 2013 role is unknown but he's a must draft either way
67
Belisle, MattNLCOL4921.00.28220%5%0.054Like the skills here but Brothers looms large as well
68
Boggs, MitchellNLSLN5020.80.26219%9%0.050Good reserve option worth keeping an eye on
69
Ambriz, HectorALHOU4321.20.28117%8%0.048I don't care how desperate you are, avoid
70
Lyon, BrandonNLNYN4320.90.25520%8%0.040Quiet stash in NL leagues - has skills to take closer role if Francisco slips up
71
Webb, RyanNLMIA5120.70.28217%8%0.032Tough to elevate, easy to put in play
72
Lopez, WiltonNLCOL5521.00.30017%5%0.030Elbow issues in off-season nixed one trade - tread with caution
73
Thornton, MattALCHA4820.90.23627%7%0.010Let's face it, he's never going to get saves.
74
Montgomery, MarkALNYA4511.00.22430%10%n/aHe'll be the next David Robertson for the Yankees
75
McGee, JakeALTBA4211.00.23026%9%0.161Big splits, but he did most of his damage vs RH. He's a LHP, but far from a LOOGY
76
Jones, NathanALCHA4411.20.28117%12%0.134Good guy to stash in AL leagues
77
Downs, ScottALANA5810.70.24418%7%0.107LOOGY who gets the occasional save
78
Crain, JesseALCHA4111.10.23823%10%0.103K% has gone up five straight seasons. Misses bats, but also misses the zone
79
Burnett, SeanALANA5210.90.24120%8%0.087Splits are big, but rest of skills are rather tasty. Still behind Madson & Frieri
80
Brothers, RexNLCOL4810.90.23630%12%0.076Electric arm with splits, but misses a lot of bats & tough to hit
81
Bastardo, AntonioNLPHI3411.00.22030%10%0.067Adams becomes Papelbon insurance
82
Crow, AaronALKCA5311.10.26021%10%0.067
83
Peralta, JoelALTBA3511.00.22624%7%0.056A ROOGY who enjoys pitching indoors and is used all over the place
84
Collins, TimALKCA4110.90.22328%12%0.043Misses bats well enough, but too many flyballs and walks to be taken seriously
85
Hughes, JaredNLPIT5411.00.27614%8%0.042Groundball specialist who doesn't miss bats
86
Adams, MikeNLPHI4510.80.22627%6%0.042K% has declined 4 straight seasons; FIP up 4 straight
87
Walden, JordanNLATL5010.80.25623%11%0.040Live arm, but funky delivery leads to getting out of whack. No saves in Atlanta
88
Oliver, DarrenALTOR4610.90.24821%7%0.038Has pitched since the Carter administration. Has same chance at saves
89
Furbush, CharlieALSEA4211.00.24022%8%0.030Worth rostering even if he doesn't get saves
90
Frasor, JasonALTEX4311.00.24523%10%0.028Flyball/HR prone pitcher signs in Texas. Avoid like the clap
91
Ayala, LuisALBAL4711.10.27816%7%0.022Skills are borderline, would roster in single league reserves
92
Pryor, StephenALSEA4310.80.22526%11%0.017Another live arm in a Seattle pen full of them
93
Villarreal, BrayanALDET4211.20.25621%11%0.016One of the many live arms in Detroit with similar issues
94
Farnsworth, KyleALTBA4311.00.24323%8%0.015Still has the skills, but got Wally Pipp'd by Rodney. Many talented options in TB pen
95
Smith, JoeALCLE5710.80.23819%10%0.009ROOGY
96
Thayer, DaleNLSDN4610.90.26220%7%0.009Minor league journeyman
97
Affeldt, JeremyNLSFN5710.60.24423%9%0.008Improving FIP, steady skills, but scarce saves
98
O'Day, DarrenALBAL4411.10.24022%6%0.007A side-armer who gets both lefties and righties out. Hmmm
