Don’t let the ERA fool you, Dellin Betances is dropping off

Dellin Betances isn’t just extraordinary, he’s unique. The 27-year-old has unparalleled size, a breaking ball that defies categorization, and he’s thrown 16 2/3 more innings than any other reliever in the majors over the last two years.

When a team makes a change to the closing role, fantasy owners turn into hawks trying to be the first to pick the new closer up. But what about relief pitchers that aren’t in the closing role?
