Fantasy Baseball Bullpen Report: July 23
Ryan Hallam goes around the league, highlighting bullpens of note and potential closers to add to your fantasy baseball rosters.
Welcome to the 2020 Fantasy Baseball season. It has been a crazy road to get here, but tonight there will be two games that count. Between cases of Covid-19, injuries due to a short “summer camp”, or managers having “short leashes” due to a condensed 60-game schedule, the closer carousel could spin more often, and faster than we have ever seen before in fantasy. I also wonder if we will see more managers start to listen to analytics more and start to put their best relief arms in high leverage situations in the seventh or eighth innings if a situation arises rather than wait until the ninth inning to close door. I don’t think anything we see happen in the next two months can surprise us as all teams try to navigate their way through this season between trying to win and keep everyone healthy and on the field.
Another thing to consider when going through the season, is how many closers will work on back to back days, or three in a row? There aren’t many off days in this schedule...
