  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Records third save

    Ottavino picked up the save in Thursday's 5-3 victory over the Dodgers. He didn't allow a baserunner while striking out two over one inning.

    Ottavino has now recorded three saves in his last four appearances, and he has allowed just one run in 12 innings over his last 12 outings. In addition, the righty has allowed only two hits and one walk in 6.2 innings during his last six appearances. Normal closer Edwin Diaz navigated a tough eighth inning Thursday, and it's Diaz's own excellence that could yield Ottavino a few saves down the stretch, specifically in cases where Diaz has pitched the previous days or when game situations dictate him being used through the toughest parts of the order earlier than the ninth.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Picks up second save

    Ottavino allowed a hit in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Rockies.

    This was Ottavino's second save in as many appearances. Edwin Diaz was likely unavailable Saturday after pitching each of the last two days, allowing the save chance to fall to Ottavino, who also earned a save Thursday when Diaz was deployed in the eighth inning and earned a hold. Ottavino has earned high-leverage opportunities -- he hasn't allowed more than one run in any appearance since May 4. In that span, he's given up a single run on five occasions in his last 41 outings. For the season, he's pitched to a 2.09 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 61:14 K:BB through 51.2 innings while adding two saves, 17 holds, three blown saves and a 5-2 record as a setup man.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Records first save

    Ottavino earned a save against the Rockies on Thursday, striking out one batter in a perfect ninth inning.

    The Mets elected to use closer Edwin Diaz in the eighth inning Thursday, so it was Ottavino who got the opportunity to close the door in the ninth. The right-hander proved up to the task, needing only 12 pitches to set the side down in order. Ottavino saved 11 contests with Boston last season, but Diaz is the unquestioned closer for New York, so save opportunities for other relievers will likely be few and far between.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Snags seventh hold

    Ottavino worked 0.2 scoreless innings Friday to record his seventh hold of the season in a win over the Angels.

    After Joely Rodriguez put the first two Angels aboard in the eighth inning before striking out Brandon Marsh, Ottavino got the call to shut down the rally and needed only three pitches to induce a double play grounder from Jo Adell. Ottavino has settled into his setup role for the Mets, with six of his holds coming since the beginning of May -- a stretch during which he's posted a 2.45 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB over 14,2 innings.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Picks up third hold

    Ottavino struck out two over 1.1 perfect innings to record his third hold of the season in Wednesday's win over the Cardinals.

    The veteran righty got pressed into emergency duty in the sixth inning after Max Scherzer (side) removed himself from the game, and Ottavino was sharp in protecting the Mets' lead. A couple rough outings have left him with a 4.30 ERA and 1.30 WHIP through 14.2 innings on the season, but Ottavino has an impressive 34.8 percent strikeout rate -- his best mark since 2018 -- and a 9.1 percent walk rate that would be his lowest since 2016, if he can keep up the pace.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Grabs win Tuesday

    Ottavino (1-0) walked one in a scoreless 10th inning Tuesday to pick up the win in the first game of a doubleheader against the Giants.

    It was far from a sharp effort, as Ottavino threw only eight of 17 pitches for strikes, but he escaped danger thanks to a great defensive play at first base by Pete Alonso to snag a wide throw from Francisco Lindor, who subsequently atoned for the miscue by singling home Brandon Nimmo for the winning run in the bottom of the frame. Ottavino has yet to collect a save or a hold through his first five appearances for the Mets, but he's otherwise had a solid start to the season with a 0.00 ERA and 6:2 K:BB through 4.2 innings.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Strikes deal with Mets

    Ottavino agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Mets on Sunday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    After spending the 2019 and 2020 seasons in the Bronx, the New York native will now move on to the Big Apple's other team in what marks the fifth big-league stop of his career. Ottavino most recently spent the 2021 campaign in Boston, with whom he served as a part-time closer on his way to gathering 11 saves to go with a 4.71 ERA and 1.45 WHIP across 62 innings. Aside from issuing too many free passes (12.7 BB), Ottavino generally delivered solid peripherals (3.71 xERA, 25.7 K%, 0.7 HR/9), so he should remain a serviceable bullpen piece for the Mets. He'll likely face a tougher path to saves in New York, however, as Edwin Diaz is locked in as the team's closer and Trevor May and Seth Lugo both profile as quality setup options.

  • Red Sox's Adam Ottavino: Charged with blown save Sunday

    Ottavino was handed a blown save in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Yankees after allowing all three batters he faced to reach base. He hit a batter and surrendered a two-run double to Aaron Judge and a two-run home run to Giancarlo Stanton.

    Ottavino was summoned from the bullpen in the top of the eighth inning with two outs and runners on the corners with Boston clinging to a 3-2 lead. The right-hander looked like he might get out of the jam unscathed after inducing a pair of fouled balls off the bat of Judge, but neither first baseman Bobby Dalbec nor catcher Christian Vazquez could secure the catch. Judge made the Red Sox pay for giving him a third chance, as he lined Ottavino's four-seam fastball to left-center field on the eighth pitch of the at-bat to score the go-ahead run. Neither of those runs were charged to Ottavino, but his ERA still took a hit when he served up the long ball to Stanton one batter later. Even though his last save came Sept. 1 and he's blown two saves since that span, Ottavino could still be Boston's preferred closing option. Ottavino has at least delivered value for fantasy managers during his save drought by scooping up four wins in relief.

  • Red Sox's Adam Ottavino: Stumbles upon fifth win

    Ottavino (5-3) allowed three runs on three hits with one strikeout through one inning, miraculously picking up the win (and a blown save) in Saturday's 4-3 victory over Cleveland.

    There might be a 'W' next to Ottavino's name, but he isn't feeling like a victor tonight. The right-hander inherited a 3-0 lead in the top of the ninth and got Cleveland down to its final strike before Franmil Reyes demolished a hanging slider to tie the game at three. Fortunately for Ottavino and fantasy managers alike, the Red Sox picked him up in the bottom half of the inning to walk it off. The win is the 35-year-old's second in as many days, but his scoreless streak of 7.1 innings is over.

  • Red Sox's Adam Ottavino: Earns fourth win

    Ottavino (4-3) struck out both batters he faced to earn the win Friday over Cleveland.

    While the 35-year-old has converted saves in his last three appearances with Matt Barnes on the COVID-19 injured list, Ottavino was called upon to finish the seventh inning after Nathan Eovaldi ran out of steam. Ottavino did so with just 10 pitches (six strikes), and Boston's five-run rally in the bottom of the seventh inning put him in line for the win. The right-hander owns a 3.35 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 60:30 K:BB across 53.2 innings while adding 11 saves and 20 holds. While he's not a traditional closer at this time, he should remain in the mix for high-leverage situations whenever they arise.

  • Red Sox's Adam Ottavino: Locks down save

    Ottavino pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning while striking out two on his way to his 11th save in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rays.

    The 35-year-old has now registered a save in three consecutive outings and will continue to serve as the closer until Matt Barnes (COVID-19) returns, at minimum. There's even a chance Ottavino retains the role beyond that point, considering Barnes has pitched to a 13.50 ERA since the beginning of August. In contrast, Ottavino has posted a 1.64 ERA since the start of last month and converted all four of his save chances during that span.

  • Red Sox's Adam Ottavino: Records save Saturday

    Ottavino picked up the save Saturday in an extra-innings win over Cleveland after recording the final two outs of the game. He allowed one hit and struck out one.

    The veteran reliever entered the game with one out in the 10th inning after Martin Perez had a wild outing -- he loaded the bases and struck out Bobby Bradley before allowing Ottavino to close things out. While he allowed an unearned run following an RBI single from Oscar Mercado, he also struck out Austin Hedges and retired Andres Gimenez on a groundout to pick up his 10th save of the season. He has gone 10-for-14 in save chances while also recording 20 holds to the tune of a 3.51 ERA, so Ottavino should remain one of Boston's top late-inning arms in the final weeks of the regular season.
