Something happened in the ninth inning of Game 2 that had only happened once this season. Kenley Jansen threw back-to-back sliders against Kris Bryant to strike him out. That's notable because he throws almost exclusively cutters. But this year has seen an increased use of his slider, which has made the game's best closer even... Read More

Pitching in relief in Game 2 of the Championship Series against the Dodgers on Sunday, Chicago Cubs pitcher John Lackey came in during the bottom of the ninth with one runner on.

The Chicago Cubs have made a bullpen swap going into the NLCS. The Cubs announced that Hector Rondon will take the place of Justin Wilson.

New York Yankees relief pitcher David Robertson is not expected to be available to pitch in Game 1 of the Championship Series on Friday, and manager Joe Girardi is unsure if closer Aroldis Chapman will be available.

The Detroit Tigers may be open to trading second baseman Ian Kinsler, catcher James McCann and closer Shane Greene this winter as they continue to rebuild their organization. The veteran Kinsler was a name thrown around during the summer's trade deadline, and he's expected to be moved. Kinsler hit a disappointing .236 with 22 homers... Read More

The St. Louis Cardinals reportedly "plan to pounce" on Colorado Rockies closer Greg Holland as soon as he declines his player option and becomes a free agent. It's no secret that the Cardinals need help in the back of their bullpen, and Holland will be one of the best relievers available on the free agent... Read More

Correcting a previous report, Colorado Rockies closer Greg Holland's agent, Scott Boras, said that reports that his client won't exercise his option are speculative. "Holly hasn't made any decisions," Boras said. Holland had a big comeback season after not pitching at all in 2016, tying for the National League lead in saves (41), so it's... Read More

After not pitching more than one inning all season, Chicago Cubs closer Wade Davis entered the game with two outs in the bottom of the seventh.

Colorado Rockies closer Greg Holland won't exercise his $15 million player option, which will make him a free agent this winter. Holland's agent, Scott Boras, thinks the market for bullpen stars should explode. Some executives think Giants closer Mark Melancon's $62 million, four-year deal could be a comparison for Holland. The former Royals closer was... Read More

A's closer Blake Treinen had successful surgery to remove a cyst from his right middle finger last Friday. He is expected to be at 100 percent for the start of spring training. Treinen served as the A's closer down the stretch in 2017 after a disastrous start of the season for the Nationals. Treinen closed... Read More

Let's mine through the poop pile and see if we can dig out...I don't know, some undigested corn or something. There's a few good ones here. SHUT UP, I don't see you making any bold predictions. 1. Max Kepler hits 30 bombs AND is a top-30 outfielder.   Ehhhhhh not so much. Kepler fell outside... Read More

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi doesn't think relief pitcher Dellin Betances will be available to pitch in Game 3 of the Division Series on Sunday. It's a minor blow to an already strong Yankees bullpen. Betances allowed a run on a walk and a strikeout in two innings pitched against the Indians on Friday.... Read More

Coming into a tie game with a runner on first base in Game 2 of the Division Series against the Nationals, Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Mike Montgomery allowed a single to second baseman Daniel Murphy before serving up a three-run shot to first baseman Ryan Zimmerman. The lefty would retire the next two batters to end the... Read More

After tossing a scoreless inning in Game 1, Edwards gave up a hit which was followed by a strikeout and then a Bryce Harper two run bomb to tie the game 3-3. Edwards would go on to face Anthony Rendon... Read More

Never have I looked forward to writing a season recap so much. I didn't do as well in my fantasy leagues this year, mainly due to lack of time attending to my lineups. Nor did half of these predictions come close to coming true. Sometimes it just takes one thing to make it all worthwhile.... Read More

Showing an incredible amount of trust in Pedro Baez, Dave Roberts put him on the postseason roster along with former starter Ross Stripling. Struggling starter Hyun-Jin Ryu was left off, supposedly because he was uncomfortable coming out of the bullpen. Baez has a shocking 10.38 ERA over several September meltdowns, to go with his 5.13...

Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Hector Rondon has been left off of the team's playoff roster for the Division Series against Washington. It’s a bit of surprise even though Rondon has had an up-and-down season. Pitcher Justin Wilson who has really struggled in his time with the Cubs and speedster Leonys Martin will make the roster...

One of the my favorite articles of the year is to write up my bold predictions for what will happen in the upcoming fantasy baseball season. Another one of my favorite articles is looking back on those bold predictions to see how great (terrible) my predictions wound up being. I will tell you right now,... Read More

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi wants to stay away from relievers Chad Greene and David Robertson in Game 1 of the Division Series on Thursday after both had heavy workloads in the wild-card win Tuesday. Relief pitcher Tommy Kahnle could be available Thursday against the Indians. That'll significantly weaken New York's bullpen for Game... Read More

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher John Lackey is likely to make the team's playoff roster as a reliever. Lackey had a strong second half of the season and has pitched very well of late. He will also add some insurance for Game 4 starter Jake Arrieta (hamstring) should any issues arise. Lackey will likely pitch in... Read More

The Texas Rangers have had conversations about moving relief pitcher Matt Bush into the starting rotation. Bush was very solid for Texas again in 2017, posting a 3.78 ERA, 1.45 WHIP, 10.0 K/9 and 10 saves as the team's closer for much of the year before he was injured. He was even better in relief...

What’s even more fun than making bold predictions? Looking back at the end of the season to see how good (or so, so hilariously bad) they were. It's my turn to determine if my preseason picks make me a Champ or a Chump. I was terrible this year, so the answer is the latter. Let's... Read More

Reviewing JB's 2017 Bold Predictions

A's closer Blake Treinen is having surgery later this week to remove a small cyst from his middle finger. The injury is minor in nature and did not affect his pitching down the stretch this season.

While holds are even tougher to predict than saves, the players we’ll highlight today include some elite setup men to target off the waiver wire for Week 26, the final week of the fantasy baseball season. The more likely an MLB team is to win, the more likely these pitchers will be eligible to earn the... Read More

Pittsburgh Pirates closer Felipe Rivero picked up his 20th save of the season on Thursday against the Orioles, but it was another number that caught the eye of baseball fans. 102.6 MPH.
