Saves Leaders: 2015 MLB Season

Saves is a statistic in baseball that is awarded to a relief pitcher who finishes the game for the winning team and meets the following conditions:

Saves are credit to pitchers when:

1) they are finishing pitcher of the winning team,
2) they aren't the winning pitcher, which is a different pitching statistic,
3) credited with at least 1/3 inning pitched
4) Meet one of the following conditions:

- Enters the game with no more than a 3 run lead and pitches at least an inning.
- Enters the game with a potential tying run on base, at bat or on deck.
- Pitches at least three innings

More about Saves Leaders

There are a number of ways that a pitcher can be credited with a save, but given today’s homogenous bullpen usage by managers throughout the league, almost all saves are earned by a reliever who enters the game at the beginning of a ninth inning with a lead of three runs or less. To be credited with a save pitchers must finish the game, not be credited with a win, and pitch at least a third of an inning. Pitchers must also meet at least one of the following conditions: 1) enter the game with no more than a three run lead and pitch at least an inning, enter the game with the potential tying run on base, at bat, or on deck, or pitch at least three innings.  In reality, however, almost all saves are one inning saves, with some saves being earned with slightly longer appearances in the playoffs.
