That’s all of our relievers who have pitched over 10 innings listed in descending order of Innings pitched.  Carson Smith has been a consistent bright spot for the M’s thus far.  Pitching so well that even Lloyd McLendon was forced to anoint him as the teams closer over the “proven veteran and established closer” Fernando Rodney.  Speaking of Rodney… Well, he’s been terrible.  The same can’t be said about Mark Lowe and Charlie Furbush each of whom have proved to solid if not entirely reliable assets coming out of the pen.

Overall Grade: C
