Fantasy Baseball Bullpen Report: September 12
Steve Pimental goes around the league, highlighting bullpens of note and potential closers to add to your fantasy baseball rosters.
Jairo Diaz has two saves in the last week, and if you have never heard of Jairo Diaz before, you aren’t alone. Those are the Rockies’ only saves since Scott Oberg hit the IL, and Colorado is tied with Miami for the fewest saves in the league this season. I don’t see any reason the Rockies would go back to Wade Davis , or give anyone else a shot, so Diaz is as good a pickup as any. He has a 4.10 ERA and 1.24 WHIP, which is pretty good considering his home ballpark. He’s been great over the last 30 days, with a 0.77 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 11.2 innings. Diaz did go 2.0 innings to get the save Tuesday, and if that continues, he could be available on some of those rare occasions the Rockies have a lead late in the game.
I never thought there would come the day I would rather own Jairo Diaz than Edwin Díaz , but here we are. Edwin Díaz blew two more saves this week, giving him seven on the season. Surprisingly enough, that’s not even the most in the big leagues.
