The Astros improved this aspect of the game, that cost them many wins in 2014 with players who weren’t ready to pitch in the major leagues. Jeff Luhnow realized this, and added talent to the existing bullpen talent.
Closer: Luke Gregerson
Setup Man: Chad Qualls
Setup Man: Pat Neshek
The bullpen may still lack a dominate closer, the group as a whole should be pretty good. Luhnow brought some veterans in to stabilize the bullpen, to prevent losing those close games. With a decent rotation, and pitchers going deeper into games, it should keep the bullpen fresh down the stretch.
I would give the Astros bullpen a B+
