Field offers on them. See what teams offer. July can sometimes be very nice for teams selling relief pieces.

 

I agree with that but I've seen how MLB teams have started to value their top prospects and I would rather keep them than to trade them for fringe prospects. It really has to be a good deal because they are all good, young and controllable.  There shouldn't be a rush to trade them.

We want a "super bullpen" and these three relief arms may create half of that,last time we have a "super closer" like Barraclough may need dating back to the times of Nen and Urbina,I know the relief pitchers were never shortage in the league but not everyone was replaceable and I would never forget how we lost Andrew Miller and Brad Hand.

Relief pitchers are inconsistent, and a "super bullpen" is the finishing touch on a contending club, not the first thing you build.

 

Trade all the relievers.

Barraclough’s .BABIP against is .093 which is pretty absurd luck.

 

Don’t get me wrong, he’s a good reliever, but they really have to trade him and get a nice return. It’s the ultimate sell high.

 

not to mention his hard hit % is at a career high (37.7) so yeah lotsa luck with balls in play

Something interesting with Bearclaw. In April, he struck out 22 in 12.2 innings, giving up seven hits. Since then, he's punched out only 13 in 21.2 innings, but only two hits allowed. I wonder if that's on purpose? Is he trying to induce more contact?

In June, he's got 10 ip with only 1 bb! 95% of contact made has been grounders and flyouts which is an astounding #

Right, still wondering though if he's doing something different to not strike out as many and just get the contact. Any idea??

 

throwing a lot less sliders and a lot more change ups prob has a lot to do with it. not throwing so hard (94mph avg on fb vs 95.2 last year and 96 year before) is prob why his bb numbers have gone done as well (along with k%)

 

He's also getting 51% contact rate on pitches outside of the zone which leads to shitty contact as well
