Top 50 Relief Pitchers – September 2016

by John on September 15, 2016

Francisco Rodriguez and Tyler Thornburg are the biggest movers in the September rankings.

 

(Rankings as of 9/14)

The rating assigned to each player represents his value in a keeper league.

The list of relievers is based on Saves, Ks, ERA and WHIP. Though relievers do pick up some wins throughout the season, they can be entirely random; just assume a closer will give you roughly five wins each year. Other criteria include Age, Upside, Injury Risk, Likelihood of Closing and Development Status.
