Cardinals' Juan Nicasio: Secures sixth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio pitched a scoreless ninth inning to collect his sixth save of the season during Saturday's win over Milwaukee.

It's been an impressive stretch for the 31-year-old righty, as Nicasio has allowed just two runs through 16.1 innings over his past 15 appearances while striking out 14 batters and recording four wins and four saves. He has the pitching arsenal to succeed in high-leverage situations, and with unrestricted free agency ahead, Nicasio could land in a favorable fantasy situation if he signs with the right team. As a result, he's a potential speculative add in keeper/dynasty settings.

Cardinals' Juan Nicasio: Gets four-out save Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio got the final four outs to earn his fifth save in Tuesday's 8-7 win over the Cubs, allowing one hit with two walks and three strikeouts.

Nicasio came in with two down and the bases empty in the eighth inning after two Chicago home runs off Jake Brebbia had trimmed a five-run lead down to one. He nearly surrendered the tying run on a Kris Bryant ground rule double that came a few feet from clearing the wall, but got Anthony Rizzo to pop out to end the threat in the eighth. Nicasio didn't allow any more contact after that, issuing a pair of free passes to go with three swinging strikeouts. While he's got a solid grip on the closer role, Nicasio may not be available in the coming days after needing 31 pitches to secure this one.

Cardinals' Juan Nicasio: Picks up win despite allowing homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio (4-5) was the winning pitcher against the Reds on Tuesday. He gave up a solo home run and struck out one batter in 1.1 innings.

He worked a scoreless ninth inning in a tie game to send it to extras. After the Cardinals took the lead in the top of the 10th, Nicasio came back out, but he showed signs of fatigue and was ultimately pulled after his 29th pitch. That opened the door for Tyler Lyons to earn the save, but it seems clear that Nicasio is manager Mike Matheny's preferred closing option.

Cardinals' Juan Nicasio: Works ninth inning Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio gave up a run on two hits in the ninth inning of Thursday's win over the Reds.

The Cardinals extended their lead in the bottom of the eighth inning, so it wasn't a save situation when Nicasio entered, but it's clear that he's now the preferred endgame option in St. Louis. He earned saves in his first two appearances with the team following his trade from Philadelphia on Sept. 8 and 9. Tyler Lyons, meanwhile, worked the seventh inning Thursday. Seung Hwan Oh is currently nursing a hamstring injury.

Cardinals' Juan Nicasio: Records save for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicasio threw a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record the save for the second time in as many games as a Cardinal.

The right-hander logged 1.1 innings in doing the job during his Friday debut for the Cardinals, and this repeat performance may work in his favor to gain a big lead in the closer battle over -- if not take the job outright from -- Seung Hwan Oh and Tyler Lyons, who got the win after a scoreless eighth. Despite suiting up for his third team of the season, Nicasio has found new life as a reliever this year, posting a 2.69 ERA with 8.9 K/9 over 63.2 innings. Seemingly holding the inside track for saves, Nicasio is worth a pickup in all fantasy leagues possible.
