A man in a gray baseball uniform and navy blue cap stands on a dirt mound. He is striding forward with his left leg as he clutches a baseball behind his head with his right hand and curls his left hand, wearing a baseball glove, under his outstretched arm. He is wearing a black belt, black shoes, and a black baseball glove, and his uniform reads "New York" in navy blue letters across the chest. His face is contorted in concentration.
Mariano Rivera is a three-time winner of the Delivery Man of the Year Award, and won the monthly award in April 2008 and July 2009. In 2014, the American League version of the newly created Reliever of the Year Award was named after him.

The Major League Baseball Reliever of the Year Award is an honor given annually to the best relief pitchers in Major League Baseball (MLB), one each in the American League (AL) and National League (NL).[1] The 2014 season will mark the first occasion on which the award will be given since MLB announced it would be replacing the Major League Baseball Delivery Man of the Year Award and Major League Baseball Delivery Man of the Month Award (which were presented from 2005 to 2013).[2] Though all relief pitchers are eligible, most recipients of the award are closers.

The Delivery Man Awards were initially part of a sponsorship agreement between MLB and package delivery company DHL Express from 2005 to 2010.[3][4] From its inception in 2005 through 2008, the annual award was voted online by fans from a group of 10 finalists chosen by an MLB panel.[5][6] The panel took sole responsibility to select the annual winner starting in 2009.[5][7] The winner of the monthly award was decided on by a four-man panel, which originally consisted of Dennis Eckersley, Jerome Holtzman, Rick Sutcliffe and Bob Watson.[8] The panel has included Darryl Hamilton and Mike Bauman, a national columnist for MLB.com.[9]

The annual award was given to a single reliever for all of MLB through 2013. However, on April 9, 2014, MLB announced that it would henceforth name a winner for each league.[2] They also named the respective awards after two closers who spent their entire careers in their respective leagues—Mariano Rivera (who had retired after the previous season) for the AL award and Trevor Hoffman for the NL award.[2] This new award will be determined based on a vote of a nine member panel made up of Rivera, Hoffman, Eckersley, Rollie Fingers, Goose Gossage, Bruce Sutter, Lee Smith, John Franco, and Billy Wagner.[2] This represents the four living relief pitchers who are in the Hall of Fame along with the top five relievers in career saves.[2]

Rivera has won the Delivery Man Award more than any other AL pitcher; he received the annual award in 2005, 2006, and 2009, and was named the monthly winner in April 2008 and July 2009. Hoffman has won the monthly award four times in the NL; winning in May 2005, September 2006, May 2007, and May 2009. Joe Nathan (July 2006, July 2008, and June 2009) and Rafael Soriano (May 2010, July 2010, and August 2010) have won the monthly award three times. Other pitchers who have won multiple times include Jonathan Papelbon (April 2006 and the 2007 annual award), Brad Lidge (July 2005 and the 2008 annual award), Heath Bell (April 2009 and the 2010 annual award), and Francisco Rodríguez (August 2006 and June 2008).
