A while back, I examined how several pitchers who split their time between starting and relieving performed. Once I was done with the article, I felt several other pitchers needed a look, so I decided to analyze eight more of them. Besides Tanner Houck and Nestor Cortes, I was disappointed in the group and it might be tough to roster any of them outside the deepest of leagues.
While some of these arms might be rosterable as relievers, I will never draft or roster a reliever early on who has no chance for saves. I need to either be looking for starters with changes in talent or adding setup men in shaky bullpens. There can't be an easy-to-find middle reliever clogging up one of those precious roster spots. They are always on the waiver wire and should be streamed for maximum value.
Here's the full list from last time; the 65 pitchers who started five games and relieved in five games in 2021.
