Closer Identifier Algorithm Results as of July 29

Print Friendly

Joel Hanrahan, PIT

Here are the latest results. Only one change but a lot of players in flux.

As discussed in my USA Today column last week, Carlo Marmol is now a “hold.”

Alfredo Aceves keeps his “lose” status.

Milwaukee is still in flux, and we have no idea what will happen next. Axford got a chance over the weekend and blew it. K-rod stinks. Both are “lose” statuses.

Steve Cishek is inching closer to “hold” status. It won’t be long before he attains “hold” status, avenging his prior job loss.

The balance of results and comments are below.
