It’s only appropriate that the Bleacher Report MLB 300 nears its finish with a look at the guys who finish games. It’s time for the top relief pitchers of the 2016 Major League Baseball season.

Many relief pitchers are good at what they do in some way, shape or form, but we’re focusing on the 30 most dominant arms of them all. Since even they’re used sparingly, we’re disregarding the “Workload” section we used for starting pitchers and limiting relief pitchers to 80 possible points:

  • Control: 25 points
  • Whiffability: 30 points
  • Hittability: 25 points

Before we move on, here’s a reminder that this year’s B/R MLB 300 is different from past versions in a key way. Rather than use the events of 2016 to project for 2017, the focus is strictly on 2016. Think of these rankings as year-end report cards.
