Closer Identifier Algorithm Results For April 8

Print Friendly
Mariano Rivera, NYY

Mariano Rivera, NYY

Here are this week’s results, to be taken with a fair-sized grain of salt. Based on the criteria, any closer who is 1/2 in SV/SVO will automatically get a “lose” status. Additionally, one bad outing may make a pitcher’s skill set well below the minimums. So far, CIA predicted Carlos Marmol to lose the job, and predicted that Bruce Rondon would not hold the job, though he technically does not qualify as a “hit” since he never actually had a share of the job.
