It is the secondary stat category to Saves for Relievers, but it most cases, the guys pulling down innings in the last few frames play just as an important part of game – if not more.
The guys have to be at the forefront for the 2014 race as well.
Lets just see who we the MLB Reports take for Holds Leaders in 2014.
I just can’t take any Detroit Tigers, even though they should have Joe Nathan nailing down plenty of contests.
Trevor Rosenthal was also in the top 5 for the MLB, but he will be the new Closer with STL – just as Robertson will seek the job with NYY.
I am also not sold on any Rangers making the list either, as some may be pressed into a Starting Role, or ended vying for the Closers position.
A lot of this is speculation on some teams like Kansas City and Tampa both faring well, but it would also see SF and WSH go back to where they were in the 2012 season in terms of wins.
5. Kelvin Herrera, KC – 29
4. Sean Doolittle, OAK – 30
3. Santiago Casilla, SF – 31
2. Joel Peralta, TB – 33
1. Tyler Clippard, WSH – 38
