  • Padres' Josh Hader: Picks up 35th save

    Hader allowed a hit and struck out two in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Saturday's 5-2 win over the White Sox.

    Hader pitched around a one-out single from Eloy Jimenez to protect a three-run lead. While he took a blown save in Wednesday's extra-inning win over the Dodgers, Hader has still gone 8.2 innings since he last allowed an earned run. He's converted five of six save chances across those nine appearances. The 28-year-old is 35-for-39 in save chances this year with a 5.29 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 80:21 K:BB in 49.1 innings between the Padres and the Brewers.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Blows fourth save

    Hader blew the save during Tuesday's 4-3 extra-inning victory against the Dodgers, allowing an unearned run on one hit and one walk while striking out one.

    Hader entered in the top of the ninth to protect a one-run lead and surrendered a leadoff Trea Turner double on his first pitch. A subsequent error put runners on the corners and a two-out passed ball let Turner in to tie the game. The blown save is the 28-year-old's first since Aug. 9, as he continues to pitch to his potential this month despite the poor result Tuesday. Over nine contests dating back to Aug. 31, Hader has permitted one earned run on six baserunners while striking out nine across 8.2 innings.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Records another save

    Hader earned a save against the Cardinals on Wednesday with a perfect ninth inning.

    Hader threw a strike on just six of 12 pitches and didn't fan any batters for the first time in four outings, but he retired St. Louis in order to close out the 1-0 Padres win. The veteran reliever was demoted from the closer role in late August but has since reclaimed the position and successfully recorded five straight save opportunities. Since Aug. 31, he's posted a 1.29 ERA, 0.57 WHIP and 7:1 K:BB over seven innings covering seven appearances.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Tallies 33rd save

    Hader saved Saturday's 2-0 win against the Diamondbacks, allowing one hit and striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Hader was brought in to face the top of Arizona's order and worked around a Jake McCarthy one-out single to lock down his 33rd save in 36 opportunities. The 28-year-old has recorded a save in four of his last six outings after failing to do so in seven straight appearances and possesses a 1.80 ERA across five September innings. Despite a high 5.84 ERA, Hader has suffered only two negative marks (one loss, one blown save) in 17 appearances since July 22.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Strikes out side in save

    Hader saved Tuesday's 2-0 win against the Mariners, allowing one hit while striking out three in a scoreless ninth inning.

    It took 24 pitches, but Hader was able to protect a two-run lead while recording three strikeouts in an outing for the first time with San Diego. All four batters the 28-year-old faced reached two-ball counts, though he was still able to make it three straight outings without issuing a free pass. Hader has surrendered one run over his last five appearances while converting all three save chances.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Clean inning for 31st save

    Hader pitched a perfect inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Hader was solid, retiring the side on nine pitches against the Diamondbacks' two most productive hitters of the night -- Daulton Varsho and Corbin Carroll -- as well as pinch hitter Carson Kelly. The save was Hader's second in his last three appearances, though he's allowed one run in three innings in that span in the non-save opportunity. Notably, Nick Martinez pitched the eighth inning Wednesday, earning a hold. Hader's at a 6.26 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 68:20 K:BB through 41.2 innings this year between the Brewers and the Padres. For now, the Padres' bullpen looks like a committee, though it's clear Hader's in the mix for save chances.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Converts save chance

    Hader allowed one hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Wednesday against the Giants.

    Hader was removed from the closer role Aug. 20. Nevertheless, with Nick Martinez unavailable, Hader was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning. After allowing a leadoff single, Hader retired the next three batters to record his 30th save of the campaign and first since July 29. It remains unclear whether this outing will convince the Padres to reinstate Hader as the closer, or if he will have to string together multiple positive performances to see consistent opportunities in the ninth inning once again.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Pelted in non-save situation

    Hader gave up six earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out one over one-third of an inning in a 15-7 loss to the Royals on Sunday.

    Hader was recently removed from the closer role in San Diego after he struggled since coming over at the trade deadline. Manager Bob Melvin decided to give Hader a chance to pitch in a lower-leverage situation Sunday, as the Padres were trailing by three runs in the eighth. Hader was promptly tagged for six runs and could only get one out. The poor showing means he likely still has much to figure out before he can return to higher-leverage work.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Out as closer, for now

    Manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that Hader will be given "a little break" from the closer role, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    This seems like a quick hook for a player the Padres just gave up a lot to acquire via trade, but Hader has allowed six runs in his last three appearances, walking four while recording just four outs in that span. The team apparently wants to try to get him right in lower-leverage spots for the time being, with the hope of eventually reinstalling the lefty in the ninth inning. Luis Garcia and Robert Suarez figure to see save chances in the interim as part of a late-inning committee.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Struggles again Friday

    Hader (2-5) allowed three runs (two earned) on a hit and a walk without recording an out Friday, taking the loss versus the Nationals.

    Hader entered with the game tied at 3-3 and made a mess of it. One run came home on his own error, and he followed that by coughing up a two-run home run to Alex Call before Luis Garcia was brought in to complete the inning. Hader's struggles from the end of his Milwaukee tenure have followed him to San Diego -- he's given up six runs (five earned) while posting a 4:5 K:BB through 3.1 innings across five appearances as a Padre. For the season, he has a 5.06 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 63:16 K:BB while going 29-for-32 in save chances through 37.1 innings across 42 appearances.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Blows save Tuesday

    Hader allowed three runs on a hit, three walks and a hit batsman while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning, taking a blown save in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Giants.

    Hader was looking for his first save as a Padre, but he labored in the ninth inning, twice issuing bases-loaded walks before giving up the tying run on a sacrifice fly. He needed 37 pitches (19 strikes) in the shaky outing, and he would also be denied the win as Tim Hill finished the frame before the Padres walked it off. Hader had a shaky stretch just before the All-Star break, and he's now given up four runs through seven innings in the second half. The closer is 29-for-32 in save chances while adding a 4.66 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 63:15 K:BB through 36.2 innings this year.
