    • Giles allowed a hit but was able to strike out the side Tuesday against the White Sox to pick up his 32nd save of the year. Giles allowed a single to Tim Anderson to open the ninth inning, but was able to strike out the next three batters on 13 pitches to preserve the Astros' 3-1 lead and pick up his fifth save of the month. Following the game, manager A.J. Hinch reported that Giles wouldn't be available for Wednesday's contest after appearing in four of the past five games, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. Will Harris or Chris Devenski would likely get the ninth-inning nod if a save opportunity were to arise.

    • Astros' Ken Giles: Closes out Friday's win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Giles recorded his 31st save, working around a double and striking out one in Friday's 5-2 win over the Mariners. Giles has bounced back nicely after a blown save Sept. 8, registering a hold and two saves in three outings since. All three of those appearances have come in the last four days, so Giles may not be available Saturday.

    • Astros' Ken Giles: Shuts down toughest Angels
      By RotoWire Staff

      Giles pitched a scoreless eighth inning, striking out one in the Astros' 5-2 win over the Angels on Thursday. With Houston leading 4-1 entering the bottom of the eighth inning, manager A.J. Hinch called for his closer because the Angels had the top of the order due up, including Mike Trout. Hinch has been receptive to using Giles in situations other than than the ninth inning, particularly when the stakes are high. Giles could have stayed in the game to pick up the save in the ninth, but Hinch didn't want to waste those bullets on a two-inning save, preferring to have the closer at full availability entering the weekend.

    • Astros' Ken Giles: Hits 30 saves
      By RotoWire Staff

      Giles pitched a scoreless ninth against the Angels on Tuesday, working around a single to preserve a 1-0 win and notch his 30th save. After blowing his first try at save No. 30 last week, Giles got a few days off and came back sharp despite failing to register a strikeout. He's rewarded his fantasy owners with a steady campaign, earning his draft price with strong ratios and that rock-solid save total, and there's no reason to expect anything different over the remainder of September.

    • Astros' Ken Giles: Blows Friday's game
      By RotoWire Staff

      Giles (1-3) allowed two runs without retiring a batter in Friday's 9-8 loss to the Athletics. He gave up three hits and a walk. A wild game in Oakland ended with Giles blowing his fourth save in 33 opportunities. Giles had saved his previous seven chances and entered Friday's game having allowed just five hits and two walks over the past 12.2 innings. This should be viewed as a minor blip as Giles has been very good at closing out games this season.
