Giants' Will Smith: Clean outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith tossed a perfect inning with a pair of strikeouts in a non-save situation Friday against the Mets.

Smith has settled back down with a pair of scoreless outings (5:1 K:BB) following his worst blown save of the season Tuesday against the Rockies (three earned runs over an inning). Neither of those last two appearances resulted in saves, but both came in tight contests (Friday's coming in the ninth inning of a tie game at home). Smith now owns a 2.61 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 6.1 K/BB to go along with 24 saves in 42 appearances.

Giants' Will Smith: Blows second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith gave up three runs on four hits (two home runs) while striking out two over an inning en route to his second blown save of the season Tuesday against the Rockies.

Luckily for Smith, the Giants were able to rally back and secure the victory, giving the closer his third win of the season. The 30-year-old has blown two saves in three chances since the All-Star break after going a perfect 23-for-23 prior to that. Tuesday's three-run meltdown was Smith's worst outing of the season by far. The veteran southpaw was able to bounce back after his first blown save last week, so fantasy owners shouldn't worry quite yet.

Giants' Will Smith: Bounces back with 24th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith picked up the save in the nightcap of San Francisco's doubleheader against the Rockies on Monday, tossing a scoreless ninth inning to close out a 2-1 victory. He walked one and didn't record a strikeout.

Smith blew his first save of the season his last time out, but he bounced back with a clean effort in this one, needing 17 pitches to dispatch of the Rockies and pick up his 24th save of the season. The left-hander has been one of the better closers in baseball this season despite playing for the last-place Giants, as he's now sporting a 2.11 ERA, a stellar 0.81 WHIP and a 54:9 K:BB through 38.1 innings.

Giants' Will Smith: Bailed out after first blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (2-0) picked up the win in Friday's 10-7 extra-inning victory over the Brewers, giving up one run on one hit and striking out one over one inning of relief.

The left-hander blew his first save of the season after Christian Yelich led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a triple and then scored, but Smith prevented any further damage and was rewarded when Buster Posey launched a grand slam in the top of the 10th. Smith now sports a 2.17 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 54:8 K:BB through 37.1 innings and remains the top bullpen arm most likely to be available at this year's trade deadline.

Giants' Will Smith: Records 22nd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith gave up no hits and struck out two in a scoreless inning to record his 22nd save in a 7-5 win over the Padres on Wednesday.

Smith cruised through the ninth inning to nail down the save. Smith looks to carry his success from June into July, as he posted eight saves with a 1.54 ERA in 12 appearances last month. The left-hander has a 1-0 record with a 2.10 ERA heading into the All-Star break.

Giants' Will Smith: Racks up another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith picked up the save with a spotless ninth inning against Colorado on Tuesday, striking out two.

Smith was called upon to protect a two-run lead and once again delivered, needing only 11 pitches to set down the middle of Colorado's lineup in order. That makes 21 straight save conversions to begin the year for Smith, who now owns a 1.95 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 13.6 K/9. He remains a prime candidate to be traded, however, which could potentially move him to a setup role.

Giants' Will Smith: Nails down 20th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Saturday to record his 20th save of the season in a 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

The southpaw continues to enhance his trade value with a dominant performance as the Giants' closer. Smith has yet to blow a save this season and has been scored upon only once in his last 14 appearances, leading to a 2.01 ERA and 47:7 K:BB through 31.1 innings.

June 18, 2019 01:48 AM
Giants' Will Smith: Nabs 19th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith picked up the save against the Dodgers on Monday, striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning without allowing a baserunner to close out the Giants' 3-2 victory.

It was the 19th save in as many opportunities for the veteran southpaw, who is enjoying an excellent season as the primary ninth-inning option for the Giants. Coming off this latest solid effort, Smith is boasting a 2.12 ERA, a 0.81 WHIP and a 44:7 K:BB over 29.2 innings, making one of the better closer options out there despite pitching on a Giants team that is currently at the bottom of the National League West.

Giants' Will Smith: Picks up 18th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith grabbed his 18th save of the season Saturday against the Brewers, allowing one run on two hits while striking out two batters over one inning.

Smith entered with a two-run lead in the top of the ninth and wound up needing the insurance run. After a pair of strikeouts to start the inning, he gave up a homer to Christian Yelich to bring the game within one run. He shut the door following a Ryan Braun single and has now saved 18 of the Giants' 30 wins. According to Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area, manager Bruce Bochy said Smith won't be available for Sunday's series finale after throwing four of the last five days. Reyes Moronta and Mark Melancon are likely candidates should a save opportunity arise Sunday.

Giants' Will Smith: Closes out Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith allowed only one run and struck out two to earn the save in Friday's 5-3 win over the Brewers.

Smith is up to 17 saves on the year. He's pitched 27.2 innings, accumulating 40 strikeouts with a 1.95 ERA and 0.80 WHIP in his first full season as the Giants' closer.

June 13, 2019 05:12 PM
Giants' Will Smith: Earns 16th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith picked up the save against the Padres on Wednesday, firing a scoreless ninth inning and allowing a hit and a walk while recording a strikeout.

Smith faltered ever so slightly, but he managed to keep his unblemished save record intact. The 29-year-old is in the midst of an extended stretch of impressive pitching, as he hasn't allowed a run since May 18 against the Diamondbacks. The top-tier closer now owns a shiny 2.03 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 38:6 K:BB through 27 appearances.

June 12, 2019 02:04 PM
Giants' Will Smith: Notches 15th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith retired the Padres in order in the ninth inning Tuesday, striking out two to pick up his 15th save.

Smith entered the game staked to a one-run lead and had no problem setting down the Padres to earn his 15th save in as many chances. In his first full season as a closer, the lefty has proven to be more than worthy of the role, complementing a 2.10 ERA and 0.70 WHIP with a magnificent 37:5 K:BB in 25.2 innings. The possibility of a trade looms, but the ride should remain fun while it lasts.

Giants' Will Smith: Records 14th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith tossed a perfect ninth inning in Friday's 2-1 win over the Dodgers, striking out two to earn his 14th save of the season.

Playing for the 26-36 Giants hasn't afforded an overwhelming number of opportunities to Smith in the closer role, but he's converted all of his chances so far. The 29-year-old owns a 2.28 ERA and 0.68 WHIP across 23.2 innings this season. He continues to be the Giants' best option for ninth-inning duties, although he's a prime candidate to be dealt to a contender before the trade deadline.

Giants' Will Smith: Picks up 13th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith threw a scoreless ninth inning while not allowing a baserunner to earn the save Thursday against the Marlins.

Smith was called upon in the ninth inning to protect a two-run lead and had little trouble doing so, needing just nine pitches to close out the game. The lefty now has 13 saves on the campaign, though this was his first since May 19. He's also contributed a strong 2.49 ERA and 0.74 WHIP, while generating 30 strikeouts across 21.2 innings this season.

Giants' Will Smith: Strikes out side to earn save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith whiffed all three batters he faced to earn the save Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Smith was called upon to preserve a one-run lead in the 10th inning and had little problem doing so, striking out the side on just 13 pitches. He now has 12 saves on the season, and has yet to blow an opportunity. With 26 strikeouts in 18.2 innings to go along with a 0.80 WHIP and 2.89 ERA he is among the more stable closers in the league.

May 16, 2019 02:40 PM
Giants' Will Smith: Records 11th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith struck out the side in the ninth inning to earn the save Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Smith entered the game in the ninth inning with only a one-run cushion, but never came close to surrendering the lead by striking out the side on just 13 pitches. He now has 11 saves on the season, good for top five in the National League. With a 0.84 WHIP and 2.70 ERA paired with 20 strikeouts across 16.2 innings, he has also provided a useful strikeout total and strong ratios.

Giants' Will Smith: Notches save No. 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith picked up the save after striking out two in the ninth inning Sunday against Cincinnati.

Smith got Nick Senzel to pop out to begin the inning, and he fanned the final two batters to secure the victory. The southpaw picked up three saves during San Francisco's four-game weekend series, and he now owns a 2.87 ERA with 17 strikeouts through 15.2 frames.

Giants' Will Smith: Allows homer but earns ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith yielded a solo home run but still secured his ninth save in Sunday's 6-5 win over Cincinnati. He struck out one batter.

Smith came into the ninth inning to protect a two-run lead and was able to get the job done despite allowing a Kyle Farmer homer with two outs. His ERA is up to 3.29, but he's now 9-for-9 in save chances on the year.

May 4, 2019 01:12 AM
Giants' Will Smith: Picks up save No. 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith pitched a perfect inning against the Reds on Friday to earn his eighth save of the season. He struck out two.

The lefty retired the side in order on 10 pitches after the Giants rallied back from eight runs down to take the lead in the top of the 11th inning. Smith has been great, posting a 2.84 ERA and 1.03 WHIP while going 8-for-8 in save situations. If he keeps this up, Smith will be a fairly hot commodity at the trade deadline.

Giants' Will Smith: Nails down seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded the save Monday against the Dodgers, working around a hit to fire a scoreless ninth inning and close out the Giants' 3-2 victory. He struck out two and walked none.

Smith allowed a bloop single to Austin Barnes, but punched out two hitters to protect the one-run lead and lock down his seventh save in as many opportunities. It was a nice bounceback effort from the left-hander, who was tagged for three earned in one inning in a non-save situation his last time out. He now has a 3.38 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 10.2 innings on the season.
