Comparing Closer Depth Charts - Update

New, 1 comment

I’ve gathered all the closer depth charts I could find from across the Internet into one place for your perusal. Where is there disagreement?

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

The man with the leg sticking out of his back in the photo above is Cam Bedrosian. Awkward post-pitch appearance aside, he is looking increasingly like the closer for the Angels to start the season. More fantasy sites are starting to move that direction. Since my last closer depth chart omnibus post, some other changes have been made to projected bullpens on the popular fantasy sites.

Because bullpens are always changing, I present to you an updated table of closers and another for “first-in-line” relievers from seven different sites so you can see where there is consensus and where there is not. I added Closer Monkey in this round and updated all the others. The little “x”s in the cells mean that all of them are the same. Enjoy and Tschus!
