Fantasy baseball team approaches and saves: Week 17 (2022)

Now that we’ve had a few days to let the dust settle: awesome! That was a deadline for wild trade, you guys. We had what a lot of people say is the biggest trade in sports history. We had a seemingly first-place team selling one of their best assets. We had another trading team from the first position from the double site. We had, allegedly, several deals that collapsed at the last minute. We had, for sure, at least one last-minute deal that came together.

There’s a lot to talk about in baseball, and as always, the trade deadline hit the bulls hard. This week, we’ll take a quick look at all the bulls affected by the trade deadline and see how things could go down in the final two months of the season.

New York Mets – Bullpen and Closers News

The Mets didn’t make their fans too happy on this trade deadline, but they chose Mychal Givens from Cubs to fortify their bases. They also activated Trevor May from IL, so there are two reinforcements in their Relief Corps. Edwin Diaz isn’t going anywhere and staying closer to the Mets, and Adam Ottavino and Seth Lugo are still good bets for the hold.

Failures: Mychal Givens (likely to move down a rung in the hierarchy)

New York Yankees – Bullpen News and Closers

It is said that the Yankees approx They got a deal with Marlins player Pablo Lopez, but instead, they ended up exchanging Jordan Montgomery for the Cardinals and left with a four-man rotation. It was a strange deadline. But from a Bullpen-wise view, the Yankees picked Lou Trivino of the A’s and Scott Effross of the Cubs. Despite his recent human appearance, Clay Holmes has to stick to his closest role, as Wandy Peralta has set him up. Both Evros and Trevino could see roles with huge influence, with Evros being a slightly better bet to make an immediate impact.

risers: Scott Efros (in the holdings)
Failures: Lou Trivino (can still be valuable in Pending Leagues)

Detroit Tigers – Bullpen and Closers News

Tigers were expected to make more moves than they do, especially with some of their bull pieces. The only savior they went with ended up being Michael Vollmer, who was traded with the twins. Andrew Chavin, Joe Jimenez, and Gregory Soto all continue to dress as Tigers. Chafin and Jimenez will work on setting roles ahead of Soto, who will continue to close.

risers: Andrew Chavin and Joe Jimenez (less competition for reservations)
Failures: not available

Miami Marlins – Bullpen and Closers News

The Marlins underperformed slightly on the deadline than expected as well, completing only one deal. They sent pain relievers Anthony Bass and Zach Pope to the Blue Jays in exchange for a chance. Anthony Bender is back from the injured roster and should slip straight into the setup role vacated by Bass.

risers: Anthony Bender

Los Angeles Angels – Bullpen News and Closer

There always seems to be a pretty big deal that gets announced after the deadline and reminds everyone that the deadline is to complete trades, not announce them. This was the Angels and the Braves this season, trading close to Raisel Iglesias. The Angels were left with a panel in the ninth inning, with Ryan Tebera, Aaron Loeb and Jose Quejada all plotting to see some rescue chances along the stretch.

Toronto Blue Jays – Bullpen News and Nearest

Blue Jays struck a deal with Marlins to get two correct balms in Anthony Bass and Zach Pop. Bass was working as the primary setup man in Miami, while Bob was more than just an average dweller. Both have solid arms, but Bass is taking a fancy hit here because he’ll have more competition for a contract than two other former Marlins, Adam Semper and Yemi Garcia.

risers: not available
Failures: Anthony Bass

Atlanta Braves – Bullpen & Closers News

The Braves bullpen were really good, but they went ahead and added Raisel Iglesias (and his big contract) to their squad. Iglesias will be a “minor closer” to the team according to manager Brian Snicker, who insisted Kenley Jansen will remain “closer akin”. Although we’re not sure what exactly that means, it definitely isn’t Good Jansen’s fictional value news. Iglesias takes a hit here when he moves from a certain Role 9 role, and AJ Minter moves down too, though Braves have taken William Smith out of the mix by trading him on a separate deal.

risers: not available
Failures: Razel Iglesias, Kenley Janssen?

Chicago Cubs – Bullpen and Closers News

The Cubs… forgot to trade some of their players who were expected to be the biggest movers of the deadline. (We know, they don’t In fact Forget, but still…) They’ve ported three of their best thinners, sending Scott Evros to the Yankees, Michael Givens to the Mets, and David Robertson to the Phillies. This means that the high influence roles of the Cubs, regardless of whether there are several of them, will look completely different. Rowan Wake is supposed to play the lock-up, and Brandon Hughes and Eric Ullman will likely set it up.

risers: Rowan Wake and Brandon Hughes
Failures: not available

Philadelphia Phillies – Bullpen and Closers . News

The Phillies were doing well with their Seranthony Dominguez-led committee that includes Brad Hand, but they went out and made sure they had power closer to the extended range, capturing David Robertson from the Cubs. Robertson immediately slips into the ninth inning, sending Dominguez and Hand back into the setting innings, along with former closest Cory Kneppell. There has been some talk about coach Phillies with a panel that includes Robertson, but we’ll believe it when we see him.

risers: David Robertson
Failures: Seranthony Dominguez, Brad Hand

Minnesota Twins – Bullpen and Closers News

The twins did some big things to help get their bulls on the trade deadline, picking up Jorge Lopez from the Orioles and Michael Vollmer from the Tigers. They still have Joan Duran and Emilio Pagan, too. Lopez gets the bulk of future savings opportunities, so he should maintain his fantasy value, while Fulmer sees a rise thanks to being on a team that will likely have leads. Doran has taken a minor hit in the save-only leagues, but his value remains the same in the reservations formats.

risers: Michael Vollmer
Failures: not available

Baltimore Orioles – Bullpen and Closers . News

The Orioles are in great contention if you look at the rankings, but they were pretty much deadline sellers anyway, trading away from their closest and one of the best hitters. Jorge Lopez traded for the Twins, leaving potential candidate Felix Bautista to work in the ninth round. Baltimore Director Brandon Hyde said Bautista, Dillon Tate, and Cionel Perez are all save options “depending on matches” but Bautista is the one listed in most fictional formats.

risers: Felix Baptiste, Dillon Tate, Sionel Perez
Failures: not available

San Diego Padres – Bullpen and Closers News

Padres… Guys, Padres did just about everything on Deadline Trade. They acquired Juan Soto and Josh Bell in one of the biggest deals in sports history, but they started things up by making a deal no one ever expected: They picked up Brewers’ Josh Hader. Hader is widely considered one of the best players in baseball, and he’s clearly going to keep his ninth job, so there’s not much change in the fictional value there. Luis Garcia and Nick Martinez, who had slight fantasy bumps when he thought they’d have salvage chances, are back in the roles setting.

risers: A.J. Briller
Failures: not available

Milwaukee Brewers – Bullpen and Closers News

The Brewers, who are number one in their division, traded their closest to the trade deadline. This is not something you see often. Josh Hader was traded with the Padres in a deal that included Taylor Rogers’ return to Milwaukee. Devin Williams will move into the role of treasury at Brewers, which was set up by Brad Boxberger and Rogers. It’s a blow for Rogers, but he’s been out of work in San Diego anyway, so maybe a change of scenery will pay off for him.

risers: Devin Williams
Failures: Taylor Rogers

Auckland A – Bullpen News and Closers

A’s finds a business partner for Lou Trivino and sends him to the Yankees. But they brought back Danny Jimenez from the list of injured. He and Zack Jackson, along with AJ Puk, saw most of the A’s high-leverage roles for the rest of the season. It might be a full commission, but if Jimenez puts in a good show, there’s a chance he’ll get the job back and keep it.

risers: Danny Jimenez, Zach Jackson
Failures: not available

Pittsburgh Pirates – Bullpen and Closers News

The Buccaneers ended up keeping all of their lighters past the trading deadline, but the closest David Bednar had to be put on the injured list due to a back injury. This is not the first time he has dealt with a background issue this season, although it is currently unclear how much time he will miss. Will Crowe appears to be the most likely candidate to take over the ninth inning until Bednar’s return, although he could be on committee with Yerry de los Santos and Dwayne Underwood.

risers: Will Crowe, Yerry de los Santos
Failures: David Bednar

Short Relief – Other Bullpen News

-The Rockies’ 37-year-old closest has signed Daniel Bard to a two-year extension, for some reason. They were the only team in baseball that didn’t make a deal.
