Holds Rankings: An Educated Guess

Holds, basically saves with a different name and inning attached to them. Sometimes the pitcher credited with the Hold is actually the one who “saved” the game, but that’s a discussion for another time and place. Right now, it’s time to try and guess at who will be the best fantasy pitchers to target in leagues with Holds as a category. Here’s my attempt at predicting the wild world of bullpen roles and reliever consistency.
