Week 10 Fantasy Baseball Closers: Depth Chart News, Saves Tips & Bullpen Report

Toronto Blue Jays

  • Closer: Jordan Romano
  • Backups: Rafael Dolis, Tyler Chatwood

Jordan Romano now has 3 saves since May 11th and both of the last two opportunities to close in Toronto. He seems to be the guy until he falters. While he was shaky to start the 2021 season, Romano has picked up tremendously since his return from IL. There was one rough outing in the first game back, but from the next outing on he has accrued 22 strikeouts in 16 1/3 IP with 7 hits, 6 walks, 0 HR, and just 2 ER. He’s been a near-elite reliever in this stretch and very similar to his 2020 self prior to a finger injury.

While Rafael Dolis was successful in the closer role prior to his IL stint, he is still the lesser reliever to Romano who has more of the “stuff” you want out of a closer. Tyler Chatwood seemed to have his sights set on that high-leverage role as a fireman who can take on the 9th, but his recent struggles allowed Romano to fend him off as well.

Baltimore Orioles

  • Committee: Cesar Valdez, Cole Sulser, Paul Fry

The Orioles are a mess (as per usual) and have possibly moved off of Cesar Valdez as the full-time closer. Cole Sulser received the most recent opportunity on Monday but he was possibly only pitched there because Paul Fry was unavailable. Sulser in his own right has been fantastic this season with a 39% strikeout rate and just 9.8% walk rate. He could absolutely find himself in that 9th-inning role moving forward if the Orioles are not dead-set on any one particular pitcher.

Paul Fry, as mentioned, is the best reliever in this bullpen with absolutely bonkers peripherals. His 1.83 xFIP and 2.25 SIERA are out of this world. The 10.4% walk rate is mitigated by his 40.3% strikeout rate on top of being such an insane ground-ball pitcher. If I had to bet on a guy, it’d be Fry but again, Sulser can hold his own as well.

  • Kansas City Royals reliever Josh Staumont (knee) has been placed on IL and has given way to Greg Holland and Kyle Zimmer to compete for saves. Thus far, since the injury, only Holland has converted one, but Zimmer took care of business just before the designation. Zimmer is still the better of the two options but with Holland’s history, he seems to be receiving the first crack to solidify himself.
  • Houston Astros closer Ryan Pressly has gone missing. Pressly’s last converted save is on May 15. Since then, Bryan Abreu has closed a game for Houston in a game where Pressly was unavailable due to a stiff neck. In his second game back from that short hiatus, Pressly was blown up versus the San Diego Padres in his worst outing of the season.Not to say he is still dealing with anything but keep an eye on his status along with relievers Ryne Stanek and Bryan Abreu.
