    • Padres' Kirby Yates: Picks up 10th save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Yates got the save against the Dodgers on Friday, working around one earned run on two hits over 1.1 innings to close out San Diego's 5-3 victory. He struck out two and walked none. It wasn't entirely smooth sailing as he gave up an RBI single to Manny Machado that hacked into the Padres' lead but Yates ended up striking out Joc Peterson to end the contest and lock up his 10th save of the season. He's having an excellent 2018 campaign despite this relatively shaky performance, as Yates now has a 2.11 ERA and a minuscule 0.91 WHIP with 84 strikeouts over 59.2 innings.

      Yates gave up two hits and a run but still picked up the save against the Mariners on Wednesday, striking out one and walking none in the ninth inning to close out San Diego's 5-4 victory. Yates made it interesting after giving up a pair of hits in the ninth, including a solo homer to Kyle Seager, but he eventually slammed the door to preserve the one-run victory. The right-hander now has nine saves in 10 chances on the season to go along with a 2.06 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 79 strikeouts across 56.2 innings.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Yates returned from the bereavement list Monday, firing a scoreless inning with a walk and two strikeouts in a 6-2 win over Arizona. Yates wasn't afforded a save opportunity after his offense plated a pair in the eighth inning, but he performed well nonetheless.
