No. 3 - David Bednar

The hometown kid has once again been up there with the best closers in baseball in 2023. Fans haven't been able to say "Put em' to Bednar" as much as they'd like this season, but the right-hander has been there when called upon. His 16 saves ranked 4th in the National League, with just 1 blown save. With a 1.44 ERA and a 0.89 WHIP.

"The Renegade" has an excellent chance to be in Seattle in a few weeks for the All-Star Game.
