While everyone in baseball wants to win a World Series, the best relief pitchers in the league will all be competing for the 2020 Reliever of the Year award. In the National League, that means stars such as Kirby Yates, Raisel Igelsias, and Hector Nerris.

Former NL Reliever of the Year winners like Josh Hader, Kenley Jansen, and Craig Kimbrel will all be a major part of the National League 2020 Reliever of the Year race, as well as Edwin Diaz, who came to the NL in 2019 after winning the AL Reliever of the Year Award in 2018.

So check out this list of some of the best relief pitchers in the National League, and vote up the stars you think have the best odds of being named the NL's Reliever of the Year in 2020.
