Relief pitchers are stereo-typically menacing figures, who throw inside 100 MPH fast balls. The truth is closing pitchers come in all different shapes and sizes, as well as different styles of pitching. Sure, it would be nice if you’re closer can reach triple digits, but some of the most effective closing pitchers aren’t flame throwers.

The New York Yankees have three players on this list, showing just how impressive their bullpen should be in 2016. Outside of the Yankees the major leagues is full of quality closers this upcoming season. Including the closer for the World Champion Kansas City Royals.

Any team would love to have any of the players on this list. The ones who have them just hope they can be in a position to use them. Here is our list of the most effective relievers in the majors today.
