RE­LIEV­ERS

The Washington Post Sunday - - SPORTS -

Dellin Be­tances, Yan­kees; Zach Brit­ton, Ori­oles; Wade Davis, Roy­als; Will Harris, Astros; An­drew Miller, Yan­kees; Glen Perkins, Twins Perkins, Brit­ton and Miller (dis­abled list) are the only closers, and Brit­ton (23 of 24 saves, 1.82 ERA) could be swapped out for Hus­ton Street of the An­gels (0.891 WHIP, 23 of 26 saves) with­out much of a quib­ble. But Perkins hasn’t blown a save in 26 tries. Harris, dis­carded by Ari­zona, has been the sur­prise key to the Astros’ bullpen, which has a 2.63 ERA that trails only Kansas City in the AL. He has a 0.96 ERA and a 0.696 WHIP. Be­tances has com­piled a 1.11 ERA and 66 strike­outs in 402/3 in­nings.
