Giants' Derek Law: Will have prominent role in pen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law is expected to fall in either a seventh or eighth inning role to start the season, CSN Bay Area reports.

After posting an impressive 2.13 ERA in 55 innings as a rookie, Law is ready to compete for the setup role behind new closer Mark Melancon. He will compete with Hunter Strickland, who also had a strong campaign in 2016 (3.10 ERA in 61 innings). The latter has the ability to hit triple digits on the radar gun, while the former has better secondary pitchers to compliment his mid-to-high 90s fastball. Whoever wins the job out of spring will be the best source of holds in San Francisco and should get first crack at closing games should anything happen to Melancon.

Giants' Derek Law: Takes back seat to Romo in closer competition
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Law -- who entered Thursday's game in the eighth inning -- appears to have lost the closer role to Sergio Romo.

Manager Bruce Bochy had been going with a closer by committee headed by Law and Hunter Strickland, but when both failed to hold a lead in a crucial game against the Dodgers on Sept. 19, Bochy decided to go with Romo for the next two save opportunities. With the former closer converting both saves, it appears he will take over as the team's primary option, relinquishing Law back into a setup role.

Giants' Derek Law: Combines for blown save Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Law was charged with a run in the Dodgers' walk-off win Monday.

Law was brought into the game with two outs in the eighth inning to protect a one-run lead. He got the job done in the eighth and was given a chance to finish the job in the ninth. He gave up a leadoff single and was lifted for Javier Lopez, who also gave up a hit. Hunter Strickland came in and was eventually charged with the blown save after allowing both runners to score. Manager Bruce Bochy's plan of using both Law and Strickland as co-closers has failed its first attempt. It is unclear how the manager will handle the next save opportunity.

Giants' Derek Law: Will be used as co-closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy announced that he will heavily rely on both Law and Hunter Strickland to close out games down the stretch, CSN Bay Area reports.

Law has arguably been the Giants' best reliever this season, posting a 1.90 ERA and 0.94 WHIP over 52.2 innings, so it is no surprise he will get to see some save opportunities. He did just return from an elbow injury, so he may get eased into the role as the Giants don't want to push their young reliever too hard and risk re-injury. Strickland figures to get the ninth if a save situation presents itself Monday against Dodgers because Law pitched Sunday and is unlikely to be used on back-to-back days.
