RP Will Smith
2018 Stats: 63 G, 34/38 SV, 2.76 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 21 BB, 96 K, 65.1 IP
The San Francisco Giants lone All-Star representative this season, closer Will Smith emerged as one of baseball’s most dominant bullpen arms during the first half.
The 30-year-old 23-for-23 on save chances before the All-Star break, posting a brilliant 1.98 ERA and 0.80 WHIP.
His numbers were far more ordinary after the break with a 3.72 ERA and 11 saves in 15 chances, but it was nonetheless an extremely successful season for the southpaw.
Unless Aroldis Chapman decides to opt-out of his contract with the New York Yankees, Smith stands to be the best late-inning arm on the market this winter, along with Houston Astros setup man Will Harris.
Will the Giants front office extend him a qualifying offer?
