A Look Back at the 10 Greatest Relievers in San Francisco Giants History
#1 Robb Nen (1998-2002)
Robb Nen is one of the all-time greats in terms of relief pitchers. He is currently ranked No. 21 all-time in saves. Robb Nen was one of the most intimidating pitchers in Giants history. He stood 6-foot-4 and was another big, burly dude that lived up to his nickname “The Terminator”.
Robb Nen has the shortest tenure with the Giants on this list, but holds down the No. 1 spot because he was just so, so dominant.
Not only is he on MLB’s all-time saves list, but he currently is the Giants all-time leader in saves.
Robb Nen’s K/9 with the Giants is 10.8, which is absolutely nuts. He could bring the heat, and change it up on you in a blink of an eye.
Nen was strictly a closer, and held down the ninth inning for five years, finishing his career at the brand new AT&T Park.
Today, Nen is working as a special assistant to Brian Sabean.
