Astros' Ken Giles: Records save Sunday amid injury concern
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Giles (wrist) worked around a walk with two strikeouts to earn his 14th save of the season Sunday versus the Angels.

Giles was pounded for six runs as he blew a save on Friday and was struck on the wrist during batting practice Sunday, but he emerged none the worse for wear and was effective Sunday. Barring any setbacks after his latest outing, Giles should be fine to finish out the season as the Astros' closer.

Astros' Ken Giles: Diagnosed with wrist contusion
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Giles has been diagnosed with a right wrist contusion, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

In a stroke of bad luck, Giles was hit on the wrist by a line drive in batting practice Saturday as he was going through his normal pregame routine in the outfield. X-rays were negative, but Giles was said to be in severe pain immediately following the incident, and the injury is of course to his throwing hand. It's uncertain if he'll pitch again this season.

Astros' Ken Giles: Struck in wrist by line drive
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Giles was struck in the right wrist by a line drive during batting practice Saturday, the Houston Chronicle reports. "It wasn't good," manager A.J. Hinch said. "It looked like the ball off of the bat hit him pretty hard, so he was already starting to bruise in the wrist area. He'll be taken in."

Giles was in right field with other Astros pitchers going through his usual pregame routine at the time he was struck. At this point, it's unclear if he suffered any structural damage, but the closer appeared to be in severe pain and had to be carted off the field. Giles, who struggled in Friday's 10-6 loss to the Angels, will obviously not be available for Saturday's game and should be considered day-to-day until further notice.

Astros' Ken Giles: Throttled for six runs in blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles took the loss and blew his fifth save of the season Friday against the Angels, surrendering six runs on three hits and three walks while recording just one out.

The Astros entered the ninth inning holding a 6-4 lead, but after surrendering a game-tying two-run homer to Yunel Escobar, Giles couldn't right the ship. The disastrous outing caused his ERA to jump from 3.47 to 4.31, and more importantly, dealt the Astros a serious blow in the race for one of the two available wild-card spots. Giles should still be entrenched as the Astros' closer, though he could get a couple days off to recover from his nightmarish performance.

Astros' Ken Giles: Nabs 13th save despite two walks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles picked up 13th save despite allowing a hit and two walks in the 10th inning Tuesday against the Athletics.

Giles loaded the bases with one out but got a popout and a strikeout to finish the contest and hold the one-run lead. The walks were just his fourth and fifth in 18 innings since taking over as closer Aug. 9, good for a solid 2.5 BB/9 -- no reason to worry about his control unless this becomes a trend.
