      Brewers' Josh Hader: Notches ninth save

      Josh Hader struck out three in two perfect innings Saturday to record his ninth save of the season in a 4-2 win over the Braves.Corey Knebel's recent struggles have opened the door for Hader to close out games again, and he now has two saves in four August appearances after going the entire month of July without one. Manager Craig Counsell prefers to have Knebel working the ninth inning and reserve Hader for the highest-leverage situations, but until Knebel rights his ship, Hader's fantasy value will once again be on the rise.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Grabs eighth save

      Josh Hader recorded the final out to record his eighth save of the season Saturday against the Rockies.The Milwaukee Brewers needed three pitchers in the ninth inning to close out an 8-4 win over the Rockies, and Hader came in with the bases loaded before getting Charlie Blackmon to pop out. It marked his first save since June 26 as he continues to fill a high-leverage role as opposed to filling the role of a traditional closer. While that's a hit to his fantasy value, he has pitched exceptionally well all season, posting a 1.33 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 99 strikeouts across 54 innings.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Serves up two homers

      Josh Hader allowed two earned runs -- both via the home run -- while tossing 1.2 innings in Monday's loss to the Marlins.Hader had given up just two home runs all season heading into Monday's game, but both Starlin Castro and Brian Anderson took him deep on consecutive pitches in the seventh inning. Hader remained in for the eighth, but could only get two outs, and was removed from the game after allowing five runners to reach base during his outing. Hader was on point his previous time out -- just one baserunner over three frames -- and has been plenty sharp all season, so this is likely just a bump in the road for the first-time All-Star.

      Brewers' Josh Hader: Records one-out save

      Josh Hader recorded a one-out save in Tuesday's victory over the Royals.The Milwaukee Brewers had a four-run lead entering the ninth inning and still held that margin at the end of the contest, but because fellow reliever Jacob Barnes created a save situation by allowing two runners to reach base, and left-hander Alex Gordon was due up, manager Craig Counsell brought in Hader instead of Corey Knebel, and Hader ultimately shut the door after just two pitches. The save was Hader's first since May 11, and Knebel remains the Brewers' top option to close games moving forward.

      Josh Hader struck out four batters but also allowed four runners to reach base over 1.2 innings in Wednesday's victory over the Cardinals.Hader entered Wednesday's game in the eighth inning, and manager Craig Counsell seemingly would have allowed him to finish the contest had he been sharp and pick up another save as a result. However, with Hader allowing more runners on base than usual, Counsell decided to bring in Corey Knebel for the final out, and Knebel was able to close the door. While Hader did not reward fantasy players with a save Wednesday, he did keep the opponent off the scoreboard for the 13th time in 14 appearances and raised his strikeout total on the season to a whopping 66.
