  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Nabs 30th save

    Soto pitched a clean ninth inning to earn the save in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Twins. He struck out two.

    Soto, who came into the season with 20 career MLB saves, is now up to 30 in 32 chances this year. The lefty has a solid 3.17 ERA as well, and he's been even better lately with a 0.93 ERA across his last 10 games. Soto should continue to be a strong fantasy asset in 2023, even if the team around him struggles to win a ton of games.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Records 29th save

    Soto pitched a clean ninth inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Royals. He struck out one.

    Soto cruised through the Royals on just 10 pitches to earn his 29th save of the season. After taking a loss back on Sept. 17, the lefty has rattled off four straight scoreless appearances, picking up a save in each of those games. Soto has established himself as a fairly reliable closer this year, and he should head into 2023 with the role locked up in Detroit.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Credited with 28th save

    Soto allowed a hit and no walks while failing to record a strikeout in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save during Sunday's win over the White Sox.

    Soto gave up two runs (one earned) in one inning against the White Sox on Sept. 17, but he's bounced back by converting saves in each of his last three outings. The southpaw has been among the most reliable closers in baseball this season, converting 28 of 30 save chances while posting a 3.32 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 57 innings over 59 appearances.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Secures 27th save

    Soto struck out one batter in a perfect ninth inning Saturday against the White Sox to earn his 27th save of the year.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Clean inning for 26th save

    Soto pitched a scoreless inning with one strikeout to pick up the save in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over the Orioles.

    Soto needed just 10 pitches to retire the Orioles in order and earn his 26th save of the season. After allowing a run and being tagged with the loss in his last outing, the clean inning was a good bounce back for the Detroit closer. He owns a 3.44 ERA through 55 innings this season but has surrendered 12 earned runs in 20.2 innings dating back to the beginning of August.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Strikes out side, earns save

    Soto worked around a hit and a walk to pitch a scoreless ninth inning and earn the save Wednesday against the Angels. He struck out three.

    Soto made things interesting, but he covered things up by striking out the side for just the second time this season. The lefty now has 25 saves, a 3.60 ERA and 52 strikeouts across 50 innings this year. Soto has had some ups and downs, though he's been locked in as Detroit's closer since Opening Day and should stay in that role the rest of the way.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Takes loss Sunday

    Soto (2-8) allowed a run on two hits and two walks to take the loss Sunday against the Royals. He struck out one.

    Coming on in the eighth inning of a 2-2 ballgame, Soto labored threw the frame on 21 pitches and ultimately allowed a run to score to take the loss. The lefty has struggled with a 9.00 ERA and 2.27 WHIP across his last 12 appearances. During that time, his K/9 has dropped to 7.4, compared to 9.0 for the season, and he's also walking a batter per inning. Soto will likely continue to struggle unless he can increase his strikeouts and limit the free passes.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Locks down save

    Soto allowed one hit and struck out three batters in a scoreless ninth inning to earn a save over the Royals on Friday.

    Soto coughed up a two-out single to Brent Rooker but worked around it with ease to finish a 5-4 win.

Soto lowered his season ERA to 3.56 with a 48:25 K:BB and 24 saves through 48 innings.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Gets pulled early Sunday

    Soto allowed three runs on three hits and a walk while retiring just one batter before getting pulled in the ninth inning of Sunday's 9-8 win over the Rangers.

    Soto came on in a non-save situation with the Tigers up 9-5 heading into the ninth. He got the first batter he faced, but then followed that up with a walk and a wild pitch before allowing a double, a home run and a single. That was enough for Detroit manager A.J. Hinch, who turned to Joe Jimenez to close out the game. The lefty Soto has been mostly solid this year with a 2.96 ERA coming into Sunday, but the righty Jimenez has pitched well too and could see more save opportunities moving forward depending on matchups.

    Soto earned the save against the Angels on Saturday, allowing one walk in a scoreless ninth inning.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Records another save Tuesday

    Soto worked around a hit to pitch a scoreless ninth inning and earn the save in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Guardians. He struck out one.

    After allowing six earned runs over his previous four appearances, it looked like Soto was in for another rough outing when he allowed a leadoff double in the ninth. The Guardians advanced the runner with a bunt, but Soto dug in to get a strikeout and groundout to end the game. It was the second save in as many days for the lefty and his 22nd of the season. Soto also has a strong 3.16 ERA and 42 strikeouts across 42.2 innings this year.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Earns shaky save Monday

    Soto allowed a run on two hits but was able to secure the save in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Guardians, a 7-5 Detroit win.

    For the second straight outing and third time in his last four appearances, Soto allowed at least one run, but the lefty was still able to record his 21st save of the season in 23 chances. Soto has a 5.23 ERA over his last 10 games and he's seen his season ERA creep up to 3.24. He should stick in the closer role for Detroit moving forward, but he is showing some cracks in the armor and might be a volatile fantasy asset the rest of the year.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Takes loss Thursday

    Soto (2-7) allowed an unearned run on one hit across an inning of work to take the loss in Thursday's extra-inning contest against the Guardians.

    Soto worked the top of the 10th inning, which meant dealing with the automatic runner on second base, and he allowed the runner to score on a two-out single by Oscar Gonzalez. The Detroit closer has taken losses in two of his last three appearances, though he's in no real danger of losing his job at this point with a 3.10 ERA and 20 saves in 22 chances this season.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Crumbles in ninth

    Soto (2-6) allowed five runs on two hits and three walks against the Rays on Sunday. He recorded two outs and took the loss.

    Soto entered a scoreless contest in the ninth inning and quickly lost control of things. He coughed up two runs and was charged with all three runners he left on base. He had gone eight straight appearances without allowing an earned run, and he saw his ERA jump to 3.26 after his worst outing of the season. Soto is still riding a streak of seven straight converted saves.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Nails down 20th save

    Soto pitched a clean ninth inning to record the save in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Twins.

    Soto didn't record a strikeout but was still effective in shutting down Minnesota on 14 pitches (10 for strikes). The lefty has been really good this season with 20 saves and a 2.19 ERA. He's only allowed one earned run since the beginning of July and none in his last seven appearances. Soto should remain a good fantasy asset the rest of the way.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Records 19th save

    Soto pitched a clean ninth inning with one strikeout to record the save in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jays.

Soto is sporting an even better 0.96 ERA across his past 10 appearances. The lefty has a firm grip on closing duties and should be a solid fantasy asset the rest of the way.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Converts save Tuesday

Since a three-run blown save June 16, the left-hander has given up one run, five hits and three walks while striking out nine over 7.1 innings. He's 18-for-20 in save chances this year, and he's posted a 2.59 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 32:15 K:BB in 31.1 innings overall. Soto's steady pitching keeps him locked in as the Tigers' closer.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Narrowly escapes with save

    Soto allowed a run on two hits but managed to secure the save in Thursday's 2-1 win over the White Sox. He walked one and struck out one.

    Soto was fortunate that he was staked to a two-run lead to begin the ninth inning, because the lefty struggled and allowed his first run to score in his last six appearances. He still managed his 17th save of the season in 19 chances, retiring sluggers Jose Abreu and Eloy Jimenez with two runners in scoring position to end the game. Despite the shaky outing, Soto still has a solid 2.70 ERA this year, and he should have solid job security in the closer role moving forward.
