  • Cubs' David Robertson: Rebounds with save Monday

    Robertson pitched a clean ninth inning with two strikeouts to record the save in Monday's win over the Reds.

    After blowing his first save of the season in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks, Robertson bounced back with another stellar effort. Outside of that blown save, the righty has allowed just one run in one of his 13 other appearances this year. Overall, the veteran has six saves to go with a sparkling 1.76 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 22 strikeouts across 15.1 innings. He remains the top relief option on the Cubs roster at this point.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Charged with blown save

    Robertson was charged with a blown save after pitching 1.1 innings, giving up one earned run on three hits and two walks while striking out one in Saturday's 7-6 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Robertson was called on to replace Scott Effross in the top of the eighth inning with a runner on base and a 4-2 lead. He promptly gave up an RBI double to Jake McCarthy to bring it within one and then a game-tying single to Daulton Varsho before the inning's end. The 37-year-old returned for the ninth frame, giving up another hit and two walks before working his way out of the jam and producing a scoreless inning. The blown save was his first of the season -- he converted his first five opportunities before Saturday. Robertson now owns a 1.88 ERA and 0.98 WHIP with 20 strikeouts over 14.1 innings and remains the favorite for saves on the Cubs.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Activated by Cubs

    Robertson (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Robertson spent a week and a half on the COVID-19 IL, but he played catch Saturday and rejoined the Cubs ahead of Wednesday's series finale against the Pirates. He's converted all five of his save chances while posting a 1.50 ERA and 0.75 WHIP in 12 innings over 11 appearances this year, and he should take over as the team's closer now that he's healthy.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Able to play catch

    Robertson (undisclosed) played catch Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Robertson has been on the COVID-19 injured list since Sunday. He remains without a clear return date, but he seems to be trending in the right direction.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Hits injured list

    Robertson was placed on the injured list for undisclosed reasons Monday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    In addition to not specifying why Robertson was out, the Cubs also didn't specify which injured list he'd landed on, which fits the pattern teams have used when a player lands on the COVID-19 injured list. It's unclear whether or not Robertson has tested positive for the virus himself. Rowan Wick and Mychal Givens look like the top option for saves in his absence.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Locks down fifth save

    Robertson pitched 1.1 scoreless innings to record the save in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Brewers. He walked one and struck out three.

    Marcus Stroman dazzled across seven scoreless innings for the Cubs, and then Rowan Wick and Robertson shut the door on Milwaukee. Wick has been good with a 1.23 ERA, but Robertson has been even better with a 0.00 ERA across 10 innings of work, and the veteran has emerged as the team's closer. He leads the team with five saves, while Wick and Mychal Givens have one apiece.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Earns win Wednesday

    Robertson (1-0) pitched 1.1 scoreless innings of relief with three strikeouts to earn the win Wednesday against Atlanta.

    The Cubs used Robertson to record the final out in the bottom of the eighth inning, then let the veteran work the ninth as well. The righty continued to cruise, as his ERA is still at 0.00 to go with 11 strikeouts across 8.2 innings this season. Robertson left the game with the teams tied 3-3 but earned the win when Chicago scored three times in the top of the 10th. Rowan Wick picked up his first save of the season with Robertson pulled after retiring his four batters on 18 pitches.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Secures fourth save

    Robertson worked around a walk to pitch a scoreless ninth inning and earn the save in Monday's win over the Rays. He struck out one.

    Robertson has been brilliant to begin the season, as he's now logged five scoreless innings to go along with four saves. The veteran entered camp seemingly behind Rowan Wick in the Chicago bullpen, but to this point, Robertson has been the clear-cut top option to close games. Mychal Givens has one save, and no one else on the roster has any through 10 contests.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Records third save of season

    Robertson earned the save Sunday against Colorado after tossing a scoreless ninth inning, striking out one.

    Robertson has been excellent so far for Chicago and he's yet to give up a run through four appearances while going 3-for-3 in save chances. He's yet to give up a hit since Opening Day.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Earns second save

    Robertson pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Pirates.

    Robertson has now recorded each of the Cubs' first two saves of the season, so it looks like he's ahead of Rowan Wick and others in the bullpen pecking order. Manager David Ross may still mix and match depending on matchups moving forward, but the veteran righty appears to be the preferred Chicago reliever from a fantasy perspective at the moment.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Picks up first save

    Robertson worked around a hit to pitch a scoreless inning and earn the save in Thursday's win over the Brewers.

    It was Robertson, not Rowan Wick, who got the first save opportunity of 2022 for the Cubs. Wick, who entered camp as the presumptive closer, was called on in the eighth inning. Manager David Ross may mix and match at the end of the game, so this will be a situation worth monitoring. The 36-year-old Robertson would obviously see a big spike in fantasy value if he keeps seeing regular save opportunities.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Back at camp

    Robertson (personal) faced hitters in a live batting practice session Tuesday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    After recently taking a few days away from the team to witness the birth of his child, Robertson is back at Cubs camp and has resumed gearing up for the regular season. The workouts he missed likely won't put him too far behind in his preparation for Opening Day, so Robertson should remain on track to break camp with the club. He linked up with the Cubs on a one-year, $3.5 million deal earlier in March after impressing during his stint with the United States team in the Summer Olympics in Tokyo last year before he joined the Rays for the final month of the 2021 campaign.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Away from camp

    Robertson is away from camp for the birth of his child and is expected back Monday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Robertson was originally expected to throw a bullpen session Sunday, but that is being pushed back to Tuesday due to his absence. There is no indication that this will impact his availability for Opening Day.
