Pirates' Tony Watson: Days in Pittsburgh likely numbered
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Pirates and Watson were unable to reach an agreement over a new contract prior to the Friday deadline and will head to arbitration, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Watson, who will become a free agent following the 2017 season, was reportedly offered only a one-year deal. It's apparent that the southpaw's time in Pittsburgh is dwindling and it wouldn't be surprising to see the team's current closer traded. Teams such as the Mariners have inquired as to his availability. Felipe Rivero and Juan Nicasio would become candidates for saves in the event Watson is dealt.

Pirates' Tony Watson: Picks up 14th save against Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson struck out two in a clean ninth inning for his 14th save Tuesday against Milwaukee.

This marks the 12th time Watson has struck out at least two batters in an appearance. Still, with just 55 strikeouts in 64.2 innings and a 3.25 ERA, he's one of the most mediocre relievers in a closing role right now. Watson has converted just 14 of his 19 save chances.

Pirates' Tony Watson: Bumpy save Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson allowed a solo homer but picked up his 13th save Friday against Cincinnati.

He entered the game with a three-run lead and promptly gave up a leadoff homer to Steve Selsky. Watson then settled down and struck out Joey Votto swinging. His fastball averaged 93.8 mph, its highest level since Aug. 11 (94 mph), a span of 15 outings.

Pirates' Tony Watson: Suffers another loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Watson took the loss for the second time in three appearances Friday, allowing one run on two hits in one inning against the Reds.

He entered the game in the ninth inning with the score tied at three. A sacrifice fly proved to be the difference after Watson endured some questionable decision-making by his defense. The lefty has compiled a 4.96 ERA with three blown saves in 14 opportunities since taking over as Pittsburgh's closer.

Pirates' Tony Watson: Closer rebounds Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Watson threw a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday, earning his 11th save in 14 opportunities since being named the Pirates' closer in August.

Despite throwing for the third time in as many days, manager Clint Hurdle had no problem sending him back on the mound following a disastrous performance Tuesday. Watson needed just 11 pitches to retire the Cardinals in order Wednesday. Fittingly, he got Matt Carpenter -- who belted a two-out, game-tying homer Tuesday -- to fly out to end the game.
