      Brewers' Josh Hader: Picks up win Saturday

      Josh Hader (2-0) collected the win over the Twins on Saturday, firing 2.1 innings of scoreless relief while striking out six and walking one.His numbers remain absurd, as Hader generated 15 swinging strikes on only 32 offerings, and he got rewarded for his dominance when Christian Yelich blasted a game-winning home run in the eighth inning. Hader now has a 1.32 ERA, 0.51 WHIP and terrifying 56:7 K:BB through 27.1 innings to go along with his two wins, six saves and six holds.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Notches sixth save

      Josh Hader struck out two over a perfect 10th inning and recorded his sixth save of the season in Friday's victory over the Rockies.Friday's save was the first of the season for Hader in which he did not pitch more than one inning, but he still recorded multiple strikeouts for the 13th time in 14 appearances. Hader has not been the only reliever closing games for the Milwaukee Brewers -- and that should continue even with Corey Knebel presumably ready to close again -- but he should still see save opportunities here and there when the matchups dictate.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Records two-inning save Tuesday

      Josh Hader struck out three over a pair of clean innings to earn his fourth save of the season Tuesday against the Indians.The bullpen had to step up after starter Wade Miley (oblique) went down early on, and it was Hader who stepped up to provide his fourth multi-inning outing in his last five. He remains an elite source of strikeouts and now has an otherworldly 19.4 K/9 on the season. Though Corey Knebel (hamstring) is likely to be activated soon, Hader should remain a workhorse for Milwaukee and could even be in the mix for saves for the foreseeable future.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Blows save but picks up win

      Josh Hader (1-0) blew his first save of the season, allowing two runs on a walk and a hit across two innings of work, but was bailed out by his offense and picked up the win. He struck out four.Hader unsurprisingly led things off with a strikeout, but he walked the next batter before serving up a game-tying two-run homer to Starling Marte. The young lefty fanned the next two batters to end the inning, and the Milwaukee Brewers' offense picked him up and reclaimed the lead in the bottom half of the inning with a two-out RBI double from Ryan Braun to put him in position to win the game. Hader made no mistakes in the ninth inning, shutting the door in just 13 pitches. Despite the uncharacteristic outing, he still owns a phenomenal 1.80 ERA, 0.55 WHIP and 43:6 K:BB through 20 innings this season.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Unavailable Tuesday

      Josh Hader is unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Reds, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.Unsurprisingly, Hader will get the day off after dazzling in an eight-out relief appearance Monday that saw him strike out eight of the nine batters he faced to collect the save. The 24-year-old southpaw now owns a remarkable 1.00 ERA, 0.50 WHIP and 39:5 K:BB through 18 innings this season.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Delivers eight-strikeout save

      Josh Hader struck out eight of the nine batters he faced Monday to record a 2.2-inning save in the Milwaukee Brewers' 6-5 victory over the Reds.Hader had already been amazing coming into the series opener, as he carried a 31:4 K:BB with just two runs allowed over 15.1 innings. But this performance was one of the greatest regular-season relief appearances of all time, with Hader's outing marking the first eight-out save in which all outs were recorded via strikeout. Corey Knebel (hamstring) is nearing a return to action, and the Brewers have been more than willing to use Hader in non-save situations, but the way the lefty is pitching, he will be one of the best fantasy relievers out there even if he isn't used in a traditional closer's role. Hader's 39 strikeouts have him tied for 23rd in the majors among all pitchers, an eye-popping total that has powered Hader to a 1.00 ERA and 0.50 WHIP.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Used situationally Wednesday

      Josh Hader recorded the final two outs of the eighth inning -- both via strikeout -- in Wednesday's victory over the Royals.In the latest example of manager Craig Counsell not sticking to traditional bullpen roles, Hader was used in a key spot and then promptly removed despite not experiencing any issues -- likely because Counsell had an eye on the Milwaukee Brewers' as-big-as-it-gets-for-April series with the Cubs that starts Thursday. Hader is giving fantasy players exactly what they want in the strikeout and ratio departments; just don't expect him to pile up the save numbers most relievers of his caliber do.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Notches third save

      Josh Hader earned the save Sunday, going two innings and striking out three while allowing an unearned run against the Marlins.Hader seems to be the preferred end-game option for manager Craig Counsell, as the lefty has been responsible for three of the club's last four saves with regular closer Corey Knebel (hamstring) sidelined. He may not be deployed in the same way as a traditional closer, but either way Hader remains a valuable asset with a 29:4 K:BB over 14.2 innings to go along with a minuscule 1.23 ERA.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Records first career save Saturday

      Josh Hader struck out five over two perfect innings to pick up his first career save in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Mets.At least for one night, the Milwaukee Brewers gave up trying to find an alternate closing option and simply let Hader loose, and the left-hander needed only 23 pitches -- 18 of them strikes -- to lock down the win. His usage will likely remain unconventional, but expect the club's best reliever to start seeing more work in the ninth inning, as there's simply no arguing with Hader's uncanny 22:3 K:BB through 9.2 innings.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Racking up strikeouts in bunches

      Josh Hader threw 1.1 scoreless innings and struck out four batters in Monday's victory over the Cardinals.Hader walked the first batter he faced Monday, but he was unhittable after that, striking out the next three batters in the seventh inning and the first of the eighth. It does not appear Hader will see save opportunities while Corey Knebel (hamstring) is sidelined -- manager Craig Counsell said as much last week -- but he is still providing fantasy value in other areas, allowing just four runners to reach base over 6.1 innings (0.63 WHIP) while punching out 14 batters -- good for an eye-popping 19.9 K/9.
