Worst Closers in Baseball


RotoAuthority.com recently took a look at the "worst closers in baseball" right now. The list is divided into seven different pitching categories and displays which closers, who are still in the closer position, are at the bottom of those categories.

Brian Fuentes, despite his last 4 shaky outings, is only at the bottom of one of these lists. His 4.23 ERA is the 4th worst amongst closers in the MLB just behind(or above--depending how you want to look at this list) Kerry Wood, Bobby Jenks and Brad Lidge who is carrying an ERA of 7.23 (damn that makes Speier look good!).

While Fuentes doesn't appear on any of the other lists, ex-Angel Francisco Rodriguez appears near the bottom on 3 of these lists with the 5th worst WHIP (1.34),  2nd worst control (5.40 walks per 9 innings) and the 5th worst save percentage (82.8%).

Hopefully, this information plus the fact that Fuentes has posted an ERA of  1.75 or lower in the second-half of the past two seasons, is a bit of comforting fodder for fans as we head down the final two months of the season.
