Mets' David Robertson: Could be in line for save chances
Robertson and Brooks Raley are viewed as the primary options for saves for the Mets while Edwin Diaz (knee) is sidelined, Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports.
Official word on Diaz won't be available until sometime after his MRI on Thursday, but the Mets are bracing for their star closer to be out for a significant period of time. Robertson would be a natural choice to slide into the ninth inning, having saved 20 games while posting a 2.40 ERA over 58 appearances for the Cubs and Phillies last season. He and Raley are both worthy of being selected in fantasy leagues -- pending news on Diaz -- with Robertson probably the favorite.... See More ... See Less
Mets' David Robertson: Bolsters Mets' bullpen
Robertson signed a one-year, $10 million contract with the Mets on Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Robertson missed the entirety of 2020 and the majority of the 2021 season due to Tommy John surgery. However, he returned to good health in 2022 with 63.2 innings and tallied 20 saves while splitting the season between the Cubs and Phillies. He won't be in line for save opportunities with the Mets barring an injury to Edwin Diaz, though Robertson will be a proven setup option in a bullpen that is otherwise lacking high-leverage relievers....

Phillies' David Robertson: Earns shaky save in Game 1
Robertson pitched a scoreless ninth inning and earned the save Friday night during Game 1 of the World Series, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out two in the 6-5 win over the Astros.
Robertson received his first save opportunity of the postseason, and he nearly allowed the Astros to steal the win. After striking out leadoff man Yordan Alvarez, Robertson found himself with the tying run at third and the winning run at second. After three straight balls to Aledmys Diaz, the 37-year-old was able to work back and force a groundout to secure the 1-0 series lead. This was Robertson's 21st save of the season in his 29th opportunity. Despite some shakinesses in the postseason, Robertson has allowed just one run in 4.2 innings and remains a solid option out of the Philadelphia bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' David Robertson: Struggles in Game 2
Robertson (calf) recorded two outs during Wednesday's 8-5 loss to the Padres in Game 2 of the NLCS, allowing one run on three hits and zero walks.
Robertson made his first appearance since Game 1 of the wild-card round, when he'd suffered a calf injury. The 37-year-old righty showed signs of rust, as he surrendered a long home run to Manny Machado to lead off the seventh and was only able to record two outs before being pulled by manager Rob Thomson. On a more positive note, Robertson has largely gotten a handle on the control issues that plagued him over the final 11.2 innings in the regular season, when he issued 11 walks -- he's yet to hand out a free pass to any of the eight batters he's faced thus far this postseason....

He'll give the Phillies another option to deploy in the late innings.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' David Robertson: Making progress
Robertson (calf) has been throwing and could return for the NLCS, should the Phillies advance, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Robertson missed out on the NLDS roster after straining his calf while celebrating a Bryce Harper homer in the wild-card round. The Phillies have managed to take a 2-1 lead in the series despite the absence of one of their best relief options, but they'll need to win one more game if Robertson is to have a chance to pitch again this season....

Phillies' David Robertson: Earns 20th save
Robertson picked up the save Tuesday in Miami, retiring the side in order in the ninth inning of a 2-1 win.
Robertson made quick work of the heart of Miami's lineup, getting a flyout and two groundouts to end the game. It was his 20th save of the season and sixth since joining the Phillies. He's recorded saves in consecutive games but Philadelphia will likely continue to spread the save chances around its corps of relievers down the stretch.... See More ... See Less

After blowing a save in his last outing, Robertson bounced back with a dominant performance Sunday. He lowered his season ERA to 2.38 with a 75:28 K:BB while converting 19 of his 26 save chances. Seranthony Dominguez (triceps) returned from the injured list Sunday and pitched the eighth inning.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' David Robertson: Another shaky outing

Robertson surrendered the go-ahead run on an RBI single from Brian Anderson with nobody out in the ninth after the tying run scored on a fielding error. The righty has struggled in his last seven appearances, blowing two saves in three opportunities and turning in a 1-3 record with a 6.14 ERA during that span. The 37-year-old is the top choice at closer while Seranthony Dominguez is on the 15-day IL (triceps).... See More ... See Less
Phillies' David Robertson: Collects fourth win
Robertson (4-2) picked up the win Tuesday, giving up a hit and two walks while striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning during a 3-2 victory over the Marlins.
A caught stealing on Luke Williams helped Robertson escape a jam in the top of the ninth, and he then got the decision when Jean Segura slapped a walkoff single in the bottom of the frame. Robertson hasn't recorded a save since Aug. 24, but he sports a 2.51 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 18:8 K:BB through 14.1 innings since joining the Phillies at the trade deadline.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' David Robertson: Falters in non-save situation
Robertson (3-2) took the loss Sunday versus the Giants, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four in 1.2 innings.
Robertson did his job in the eighth inning to keep the score tied at 3-3, but Wilmer Flores connected on a two-run walkoff home run in the ninth. This was just the second time in 12 appearances for Philadelphia that Robertson's allowed runs, and both of those instances have been two-run mishaps leading to losses. He's added four saves and three holds as part of the Phillies' closer committee. When accounting for his time with the Cubs to begin the year, he has a 2.35 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 68:25 K:BB through 53.2 innings while going 18-for-24 in save chances.... See More ... See Less
