The San Francisco Giants 2016 Season Grade series keeps on trucking along. We’ve finally come to the bullpen. I’m sure this one has been anticipated as the bullpen pretty much decided the Giants’ fate in 2016.

The San Francisco Giants bullpen was a complete disaster in 2016. A total of 32 blown saves was the worst in the league. If they had half as many blown saves they probably would’ve won the division and avoided the Cubs in the first round. It was a dissappointing season for the ‘pen as a collective. However, some individuals did extremely well this year.

Our criteria won’t really change from the last few Grade series. The bullpen pitcher needs to make at least 20 appearances to be considered for this grade series.

Their grade will be assigned with the following taken into consideration: expectations, career trajectory, and the numbers themselves.

Let’s get started!
