Closers and Setup Men


Closers and Setup Men

If you draft a reliever with the role of CL or SU, do they suffer any degradation in performance if you don't put them in those roles in your bullpen?

If they are just set to a standard middle relief role, and not in the closer and setup roles, I believe they simply convert back to just a regular RP. But I'm not 100% sure, so can anyone confirm this?

Correct. CL and SU are basically just labels only when assigned to the role
