The Standout Late Reliever

[table id=83 /]

Capps and Betances stand eerily similar in comparison. They both have an appearance which sets them apart. Carter Capps possesses a funky delivery and Dellin Betances, at 6’8/265, looks like he belongs on a football field. Each pitcher works a two pitch arsenal, including a high 90’s fastball that blows hitters away and a nasty low to mid-80’s curve.

Statistics-wise, both Dellin Betances and Carter Capps pose as elite strikeout pitchers. Capps ranks first among MLB pitchers in K/9, with Betances shortly behind at third. Betances has a larger sample size, and is already proven, while Capps owns a lower ERA and FIP. Arguably the two best young relievers in the game, Betances and Capps prove to be must watch baseball.
