Orioles' Mychal Givens: Could get saves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that Givens is one of four relievers who could close games while Zach Britton (Achilles) is out, Rich Dubroff of PressBoxonline.com reports.

Givens will need to impress in spring training, particularly against left-handed hitters, in order to leap Brad Brach in the pecking order for saves while Britton is out (likely until late June). Darren O'Day and Richard Bleier were also mentioned by Showalter as potential options in the ninth inning, but Brach and Givens seem to be the clear top speculative plays in fantasy. The Orioles view Givens as a building block, and he is coming off his best season as a pro (2.75 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, 88 strikeouts in 78.2 innings). However, Brach's success as the fill-in closer last season gives him a leg up entering spring training.

Orioles' Mychal Givens: Struggles Friday in New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Givens allowed a run on one hit and a walk while failing to record an out Friday against the Yankees.

The reliever finished August on a rough note, but had logged four hitless appearances (4.2 innings) while striking out seven in September. Givens failed to come through Friday, though, and his ERA ticked up to 2.64 through 63 games. He still ranks among the AL's top five with 21 holds, but it's been nearly three weeks since he's last collected one.

Orioles' Mychal Givens: Tagged with first loss of 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Givens (7-1) blew the save and was handed the loss Friday against Detroit after allowing three hits, including the eventual game-winning grand slam.

Starter Kevin Gausman turned over a 2-1 lead in the eighth to one of the best setup relievers in baseball. Unfortunately for him, it wasn't Givens' night and his failure to convert led to a 5-2 loss. Albeit disappointing, the 27-year-old has been dominant all season and Saturday is nothing more than a blip on the radar.

Orioles' Mychal Givens: Picks up 18th hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Givens pitched a perfect eighth inning Wednesday against the Royals en route to his career-high 18th hold of the year.

Coming off a breakout sophomore campaign, the 27-year-old has been simply spectacular in a setup role this season. Givens now ranks in MLB's top ten for holds, and he's tied for most wins (seven) by a reliever. With a cool 1.89 ERA and 0.92 WHIP, the Miami-native has become a valuable fantasy commodity in deep formats.

Orioles' Mychal Givens: Nabs seventh win Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Givens pitched a scoreless eighth inning with two strikeouts to record his seventh win of the season during Sunday's victory over Houston.

Collecting seven wins is difficult for a reliever, and Givens has supported it with a high-end 1.97 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 9.5 K/9. The 27-year-old righty projects to continue pitching in high-leverage situations and offers modest fantasy value in deep settings. Just keep in mind that he could easily finish the year with seven victories, and Givens shouldn't be viewed as a reliable source of wins moving forward.
