Every year, it seems, a few relievers break out with stellar stats that may or may not be repeatable. This year's class features the likes of Brad Boxberger, Drew Hayes, Daniel Wolford, Alejandro Chacin, Chris Manno, Blaine Howell and Travis Webb, among others.
I'm sure sure how valid it is to rate relievers, since we never quite know who's going or coming in that role, but it might be interesting to hear about who you like. Hayes, Chacin and Webb, in particular, have caught my attention.
If I had to whip up a top dozen, it might look something like this:
2. Jeremy Horst
3. Jordan Smith*
4. Donnie Joseph
9. Nick Christiani
12. James Allen
* not sure why I still include him but not Carlos Fisher
Others worth considering, in my view (including some who, like Joseph, have not been particularly productive this year):
