2024 MLB Reliever of the Year Odds

Making a deep run into the MLB postseason without a strong bullpen is an almost impossible task. No matter how much the game changes, one thing that wonโ€™t change is the need for a high-level closer, but finding one is far easier said than done.

Being able to breathe a sigh of relief when a certain reliever enters a tight game is something only fans from certain teams can experience this season. Those relievers who bring a sense of calm to a hectic situation are also fighting for the Reliever of the Year Award, and below, weโ€™ll break down the up-to-date odds for the award in both the AL and NL.

Current Favorites

Emmanuel Clase (Cleveland Guardians): While Mason Miller has received a lot of attention this season, Clase has continued to dominate quietly, surpassing Miller and becoming the favorite for this award. He is currently pitching to a .30 ERA with 31 strikeouts in 30.1 innings.

Additionally, the Guardians' closer is 19-22 on save opportunities, which puts him at a good pace to break his single-season record for saves in a season. The right-hander certainly isnโ€™t showing any signs of slowing down either, as opponents are hitting .155 off him this season.

Mason Miller (Oakland Aโ€™s): Just recently, Miller has proven to be human, as he blew his first save of the season. Even with that, the flamethrowing right-hander is still boasting some impressive numbers that should keep him near the top of the odds board for this award. Currently, he is 12-13 on save opportunities, with a 2.28 ERA, 1.51 FIP, and 52 strikeouts in 27.2 innings of work this season.

Clay Holmes (New York Yankees): Since being acquired by the Yankees, Clay Holmes has been nothing short of phenomenal. In 27.1 innings this season, Holmes has allowed just four earned runs and blown three saves out of 21 opportunities. For as good as those numbers are, it will take quite a run for him to catch up to Clase.

Current Favorites

Ryan Helsley (St. Louis Cardinals): Even since 2022, the man nicknamed โ€œHellz Bellzโ€ has been electric for the Cardinals out of the bullpen. In 21 save opportunities this season, Helsley has converted 20 of them, as he is pitching to a 2.33 ERA with 29 strikeouts in 27 innings of work.

Robert Suarez (San Diego Padres): Suarez has seemingly come out of nowhere to become one of the best closers in baseball this season. In two big league seasons prior to this year, the right-hander was 1-7 on save opportunities with 19 holds. Yet, this season, he is 17-17 on save opportunities with a .69 ERA and opponentโ€™s batting average of .148.

Raisel Iglesias (Atlanta Braves): The veteran right-hander has been a lockdown reliever since joining the Atlanta Braves, and this season, he is already 16-18 on save opportunities with a 2.31 ERA. A big reason for his impressive numbers stems from his ability to induce weak contact, as he is in the 98th percentile in barrel percentage, according to Baseball Savant.
