Bullpen Notes: August 4, 2019: Potential Next Up Options Worth Stashing, Could Change Loom In Atlanta (Again) & More


Are you following @Rotoprofessor on Twitter? If not you should be, as we Tweet out all the important bullpen notes every morning from the previous day’s games. Who is in jeopardy of losing their job? Who is worth the speculative add? Here are this morning tweets (Please note we won’t be posting these on the website every day, so make sure you follow @Rotoprofessor to ensure you don’t miss a thing):


  1. Hey Prof,

    I think Greene has a little rope before they consider pulling him from the closers role but if they were to do that, you would think they’d go to Jackson before Martin? Martin is owned in my league and I dropped Jackson after Greene was acquired, I’m wondering if I should grab him again in case. I lost 2 closers at the trade deadline so I’m running with Smith, Leclerc, Bradley, Bass and Romo lol the last 3 being picked up post deadline speculating

    • Romo is a long-shot at this point, so I’d grab Jackson over him to see how things play out. I do agree Greene should have a little bit more rope, but one more blowup and a change could come. Martin would be a candidate, but they could go with the guy they know first

  2. Hello Professor,

    12 Team H2H 6×6 Redraft Saves only.

    I currently roster Chapman, Doolittle, Bradley and looking to add one more reliever.

    I heard on MLB network radio this morning that Diaz no longer has the closer role and Lugo is next man up.

    Who do you like ROS, Leclerc or Lugo?

    Thanks again for your thoughts

    • That’s not quite the case with Diaz. They’ve started talking about being open/flexible, but I wouldn’t call it impossible he continues to see opps (and at the end of the day I’d expect him to get the bulk of them). It’s more likely Leclerc runs with the role, as opposed to Lugo (who also faces some usage issues)
