2012 Team Save Projections

Post to Twitter

 

Find out which teams will have the most projected save opportunities in 2012. I use a sophisticated formula based on the past and projected stats to determine which teams will have the most save opportunities. Formula ingredients include last years saves, blown saves, wins, and players added/lost. Not only will these projections project the possible top closer, but it will project the guys who stand to get some extra save chances. Keep visiting this page during spring training. I will update it based on player transactions and spring training performances.
