Giants' Tony Watson: Continues dominant season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson gave up a hit and struck out a batter over two-thirds of a scoreless inning in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Pirates.

Watson notched his 25th hold in the process, which is the most he has recorded since his days in Pittsburgh when he was considered one of the best left-handed relievers in the game. The 33-year-old now owns a sparkling 2.28 ERA and a 4.7 K/BB ratio over 51.1 innings, making him a strong asset in holds leagues.

Giants' Tony Watson: Records 17th hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson allowed two hits over a scoreless inning en route to his 17th hold of the season in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Marlins.

Watson was deployed in the seventh inning against a lefty-heavy portion of the Marlins' lineup. Manager Bruce Bochy stated that Sam Dyson would serve as the team's primary closer in Hunter Strickland's (hand) absence, with Watson seeing the occasional save opportunity based on matchups. Dyson allowed two runs on four hits before giving way to Reyes Moronta for the save Wednesday, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Watson get a shot to prove his meddle as closer if a save opportunity presents itself in the upcoming four-game set against the Padres. The 33-year-old owns a 1.82 ERA with 40 strikeouts over 34.2 innings this season.

Giants' Tony Watson: Set to see occasional save chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy said Watson will see some save chances with Hunter Strickland (hand) on the disabled list, though Sam Dyson is expected to see the lion's share of opportunities, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Bochy identified Watson and Dyson as options to fill in as the team's closer before Tuesday's game, and the manager confirmed after the contest that Dyson -- who recorded the save Tuesday -- would serve as the primary ninth-inning man while Watson offers a left-handed option that could also see some occasional save chances. The 33-year-old Watson, who has recorded at least one save in each of the past five seasons, owns a pristine 1.87 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 40:6 K:BB across 33.2 innings this season and will be the next man up if Dyson struggles in his new role.

Giants' Tony Watson: Option for closer role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson is a candidate to serve as the Giants' closer in the absence of Hunter Strickland (hand), Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The Giants' ninth-inning role became available after Hunter Strickland suffered a broken right hand by punching a wall following Monday's game against the Marlins. Manager Bruce Bochy reported Tuesday that Watson and Sam Dyson are both candidates to act as closer while Strickland rehabs over the next 6-8 weeks. Watson is a lefty and Dyson throws right-handed, so it wouldn't be all too surprising to see Bochy utilize both relievers in save situations based on favorable matchups.

Giants' Tony Watson: Delivers ninth hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson gave up a run on two hits over an inning in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Cubs.

Watson got in hot water when he allowed a run to come home in a hotly-contested matchup, but he was able to pass the torch successfully to Hunter Strickland, who nailed down the win. The 33-year-old has been a key part of the Giants' bullpen this season, posting a 2.45 ERA with 24 strikeouts and nine holds over 22 innings.
