The Saves Index is a ranking of the top 50 relievers, based solely on their potential to earn saves from the present through the remainder of the season. In a case where two relievers have similar saves potential, the additional standard roto categories will be used to differentiate them. For relievers on this list that don't currently have a closer role, they are ranked by the likelihood of ascending to their team's closer role because of the volatility of the team's current closer.

|Saves Index: Top 50 relievers|
|1. Mariano Rivera||NYY||Perfect on his save chances, ERA again below 2.00. Feels like he could do this until he's 60|
|2. Craig Kimbrel||ATL||Striking out more than 14 batters per 9 innings; returned to dominance after shaky start to May|
|3. Aroldis Chapman||CIN||Excellent in recent save chances following the pastry game|
|4. Jason Grilli||PIT||If Grilli was your late-round closer, you basically won the lottery: 14.1 K/9, sub-1.00 WHIP|
