  • Cubs' David Robertson: Earns second win

    Robertson (2-0) pitched a perfect 1.1 innings of relief while striking out two to pick up the win in a 6-5 extra-inning victory over the Cardinals on Sunday.

    Robertson came into a tie game with a man on first and two out in the ninth. He got out of the inning and pitched a clean bottom of the 10th after Willson Contreras had put the Cubs up in the top half of the frame. The veteran reliever continues to have success in the closer role for a Cubs team that has struggled immensely with pitching so far in 2022. Robertson boasts a .139 OBA on the year and has struck out an excellent 39 batters in 29 innings pitched.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Bounces back Friday

    Robertson hit a batter and struck out one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Friday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals.

    Robertson blew the save Thursday versus the Pirates, but Cubs manager David Ross went right back to him Friday. Outside of plunking Brendan Donovan, Robertson was solid to earn his ninth save in 12 chances this season. The 37-year-old reliever has added a 1.95 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 37:13 K:BB across 27.2 innings, performing admirably as the Cubs' closer, though their poor 27-44 record hasn't afforded him a ton of save opportunities.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Blows save Thursday

    Robertson allowed one run on one hit across an inning of work to blow the save in Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Pirates.

    With the Cubs up 7-6 heading into the bottom of the eighth inning, Robertson got the call from the bullpen, but he promptly allowed a game-tying home run to Michael Chavis to start the frame. It was the third blown save of the season for the veteran in 11 opportunities. Despite those hiccups, Robertson has been solid with a 2.03 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 36 strikeouts across 26.2 innings.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Notches seventh save

    Robertson pitched a scoreless ninth inning with a strikeout to record the save in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

    After blowing a save in his last outing Sunday, Robertson bounced back nicely with his seventh save in nine chances this season.

  • Cubs' David Robertson: Blown save

    Robertson blew a save opportunity in the ninth, allowing a run on two hits while striking out one in a 5-4 extra-innings loss Sunday against the White Sox.

    After striking out the first batter, Robertson allowed hits to the next two batters and threw a wild pitch to allow the tying run to score. It was his second blown save in his last three tries after converting his first five chances. The 14-year veteran started the season by tossing 11 scoreless innings but has allowed four runs over his last 6.1 innings. He still has a solid 2.08 ERA and 0.93 WHIP through 17.1 innings and should continue to receive the bulk of the save opportunities for the Cubs.

    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.

  • 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.

    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

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.
