Closer Report: David Robertson, Taylor Rogers, Daniel Bard (2022 Fantasy Baseball)
Welcome to the final edition of the closer report before the trade deadline coming up next week. Here is a look at the chart for this week with a lot of potential changes coming up through trades.
|Rank||Team||Closer||Change from last week||Notes|
|4||Blue Jays||Jordan Romano||1|
|5||Padres||Taylor Rogers||-3||Blown back-to-back saves|
|13||White Sox||Liam Hendriks||-4||Allowed runs in three straight appearances|
|18||Cubs||David Robertson||2||Trade deadline watch|
|23||Red Sox||Tanner Houck||-4|
Helsley was the closer who moved up the most as he takes control of the Cardinals’ closer role, recording three saves in the last couple of weeks. He is up to nine saves on the season.
The Rangers’ closer situation dropped the most. After it originally looked like Brett Martin had taken control of the closer role, he went on to allow seven runs (five earned) in four appearances. Matt Moore earned the latest save opportunity for Texas. This remains a situation to monitor.
David Robertson is the biggest name to monitor at the trade deadline. Mychal Givens is the reliever who could take over the closer role for the Cubs if Robertson is traded. Bard and Lopez are a couple of other relievers to potentially monitor at the trade deadline next week.
