Yesterday’s Performances


  • After converting three saves in his past three appearances, Adam Ottavino got the final two outs of the seventh inning in what was not a doubleheader yesterday. Garrett Whitlock ended up nailing down his second save of the season and just when we thought Ottavino may run away with the closer role, Alex Cora switches things up on us.
  • Rowan Wick bounced back from his blown save on Thursday to record his second save of the season yesterday. Wick has now seen the last three save opportunities for the Cubs and should stick in the closer role for the rest of the season. What remains to be seen is if Wick will be fantasy-relevant past this weekend as the schedule gets tougher.


  • Andrew Kittredge picked up his fourth save in as many outings last night, pitching a perfect ninth against the Twins. The Rays are always changing things up in their bullpen, but it’s telling that Kittredge’s last four appearances resulted in saves. Nick Anderson is due back in the next week or so, and his return could certainly mix things up.
  • Carlos Estévez picked up his second save in the past week on Friday closing out Atlanta. He pushed his scoreless innings streak to 14 innings in the process, but that does come with a 1.21 WHIP and 3.48 xFIP. While it’s probably safe to assume some volatility moving forward, Estévez remains the top candidate for saves in Colorado.


  • The A’s bullpen had one of the more epic collapses of the season last night, as Lou Trivino, Yusmeiro Petit, and Sergio Romo combined to allow nine earned runs while getting just three outs in the teams 11-10 loss to the Blue Jays. Andrew Chafin remains the safest bet in this bullpen for the time being with Jake Diekman not far behind.
  • On the other side of that game, Jordan Romano was tasked with keeping the game tied in the ninth inning but wound up allowing a two-run home run to Mark Canha to give the A’s a temporary lead. It’s just the first runs Romano has allowed in over eleven straight innings, and the Blue Jay closer should be just fine the rest of the way.


  • Raisel Iglesias recorded his 30th save of the season last night, making him the fifth reliever to do so this year. Heading into free agency this offseason, Iglesias should be the most coveted free-agent reliever on the market and should be worth every penny.
  • Ryan Pressly picked up his 23rd save of the season and has now allowed just one run over his last eleven innings of work. 23 saves seems low for an elite closer on a division-winning team, but that just goes to show you how random the save stat is.


  • Edwin Díaz blew his fifth save of the season last night, allowing a home run to Juan Soto and eventually a game-tying double to Riley Adams. Heading into the night, Díaz had only allowed two runs over his last 15 innings pitched, so there’s no need to panic here.
  • Jake McGee was charged with his fifth blown save of the season last night as well, allowing three hits and a run against the Dodgers. McGee has been great for most of the season, but the past 3o days have been more challenging (4.76 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, 17% K rate).
