Mariano Rivera is a three-time winner of the DHL Delivery Man of the Year Award, and won the monthly award in April 2008 and July 2009.

The DHL Delivery Man Award is presented by Major League Baseball to the best relief pitchers in the league. The DHL presents the Major League Baseball Delivery Man of the Year award is given at the end of each baseball season, while the DHL presents the Major League Baseball Delivery of the Month Award is given during the season based on monthly results. The awards were developed in 2005, as part of a sponsorship agreement between MLB and package delivery company DHL Express.[1] It is usually presented to a closer, though all relief pitchers are eligible.

The annual award is voted for by fans.[2] The winner of the monthly award is decided on by a four-man panel, which originally consisted of Dennis Eckersley, Jerome Holtzman, Rick Sutcliffe and Bob Watson.[3] The panel has included Darryl Hamilton and Mike Bauman, a national columnist for MLB.com.[4]

New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera has won the award more than any other American League pitcher; he received the annual award in 2005, 2006, and 2009, and was named the monthly winner in April 2008 and July 2009. Trevor Hoffman has won four times in the National League; he won the monthly award in May 2005, September 2006, May 2007, and May 2009. Other pitchers who have won multiple times include Jonathan Papelbon (April 2006, 2007 annual award), Brad Lidge (July 2005, 2008 annual award), Joe Nathan (July 2006, July 2008), and Francisco Rodríguez (August 2006, June 2008). Joakim Soria of the Kansas City Royals is the most recent monthly winner for his performance in September 2009.
