Bullpen Report: June 5, 2022

The 2022 version of Bullpen Report includes five different sections, as well as the closer chart, which can be found at the bottom of the page.

We will always include a link to the full Closer Depth Chart at the bottom of the Bullpen Report each day. It’s also accessible from the RosterResource drop-down menu and from any RosterResource page. Please let us know what you think.

  1. Notable Workloads: Primary closers or valuable members of a closer committee who have been deemed unavailable or likely unavailable for the current day due to recent workload.
  2. Injury News
  3. Outlier Saves: Explanation for a non-closer earning a save during the previous day.
  4. Committee Clarity: Notes on a closer committee that clarify a pitcher’s standing in the group.
  5. Losing A Grip: Struggling closers who could be on the hot seat.

The “RosterResource” link will take you to the corresponding team’s RosterResource depth chart, which will give you a better picture of the full bullpen and results of the previous six days (pitch count, save, hold, win, loss, blown save).

Notable Workloads

Jorge López, BAL: 20 pitches on Saturday, back-to-back days. | Roster Resource

Setup man Félix Bautista got the win last night and threw 12 pitches after throwing on Friday night as well. Dillon Tate is the most likely to be given a save chance should both López and Bautista be unavailable.

Joe Barlow, TEX: 20 pitches on Saturday, back-to-back days. | Roster Resource

The Texas Rangers Closer, Joe Barlow, will likely need a day of rest on Sunday. If a save opportunity presents itself, Matt Bush should be the most likely candidate to fill in to close out the game.

Tanner Scott, MIA: 23 pitches on Saturday. | Roster Resource

Committee members Anthony Bass, Dylan Floro, or Cole Sulser should all be available on Sunday.

Tanner Rainey, WSN: 27 pitches on Saturday, back-to-back days. | Roster Resource

Kyle Finnegan (11 pitches on Saturday, back-to-back days) and Carl Edwards Jr. (11 pitches on Saturday, back-to-back days) are both on “High Usage Alert” as well. If all three relievers are unavailable, the Nationals could possibly turn to Victor Arano as he’s the only other rested reliever with a save on the year. However, it’s not hard to believe Kyle Finnegan could go for a third day in a row if the Nationals have a lead in the ninth inning.

David Robertson, CHC: 39 pitches on Saturday. | Roster Resource

After a double header, one of which went into extra innings, the Cubs bullpen is taxed. Robertson, Rowan Wick, and Mychal Givens are all on “High Usage Alert”. Someone will likely need to go again on Sunday if a save opportunity comes up. Rowan Wick is the least taxed.

Tony Santillan, CIN: 23 pitches on Saturday. | Roster Resource

Hunter Strickland (26 pitches) and Alexis Díaz (31 pitches) were both highly used in yesterday’s game as well. None of them were throwing back-to-back, so it’s likely that one of the three committee members will go again on Sunday if a save chance comes up.

Ryan Helsley, STL: 40 pitches on Saturday. | Roster Resource

Helsley blew the save on Saturday night, but Co-closer Giovanny Gallegos (36 pitches) came in and got the win. That’s a lot of pitches, so it’s possible that Génesis Cabrera may need to fill in on Sunday if a save comes up.

Mark Melancon, ARI: 12 pitches on Saturday, back-to-back days. | Roster Resource

Ian Kennedy or Joe Mantiply are likely to fill in for Melancon on Sunday if a save opportunity presents itself.

Daniel Bard, COL: 11 pitches on Saturday, back-to-back days. | Roster Resource

Both Alex Colomé (13 pitches, back-t0-back days) and Tyler Kinley (16 pitches, back-t0-back days) are on “High Usage Alert”. Either someone will have to go a third day in a row, or the Rockies will have to go with someone new.

Right, but he’s still listed as the primary closer in the committee in the table.
