Twins' Hansel Robles: Earns win against Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (2-2) earned the win in relief Thursday against the Yankees after pitching a scoreless inning with two strikeouts.

Robles, who recently entered the late-inning mix but hasn't been able to steal the closer job completely away from Taylor Rogers, delivered a strong outing while pitching the top of the ninth, as he came away unscathed despite facing Aaron Judge, Gleyber Torres and Giancarlo Stanton. He picked up the win when the Twins rallied in the bottom of the ninth. Even though Robles continues to evidence command issues on a regular basis, he's settled in of late and hasn't given up an earned run in any of his last five outings.

Twins' Hansel Robles: Takes loss in relief Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (1-2) allowed one unearned run on two walks while striking out one across one inning, taking the loss to the Royals on Thursday.

Robles entered the bottom of the seventh inning in a tie game and allowed a run to score to lose the game. However, the run was not charged against him as it was scored on a fielding error by Gilberto Celestino. Robles is a part of the closing committee for the Twins, as three relievers have multiple saves. The 30-year-old has a 3.28 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP with four saves and nine holds in 24.2 innings. He has had trouble with command with a 6.2 BB/9.

Twins' Hansel Robles: Nabs fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles secured his fourth save of the season after allowing an unearned run on a hit and a walk while striking out two in the 10th inning of Monday's 3-2 win over the Orioles.

Because he entered the game in the extra inning, Robles was on the mound with a runner (Maikel Franco) on second base. DJ Stewart's double to lead off the inning scored Franco and cut the Orioles' deficit to one, but Robles was able to close the door on the comeback attempt thereafter. Though Robles has converted four of his five save chances since entering the late-inning mix in mid May, he hasn't been dominant enough to completely steal the job away from Taylor Rogers. He's let in an earned or unearned run in four of his last five outings.

Twins' Hansel Robles: Allows run in third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles recorded the save Wednesday against the Orioles after allowing one run on two hits with zero strikeouts and zero walks during the ninth inning.

The right-hander surrendered a leadoff double to Trey Mancini, and he came around to score on Maikel Franco's two-out double. Robles has three saves in five chances and also has eight holds, so he's clearly established himself as a high-leverage piece for manager Rocco Baldelli. Taylor Rogers picked up the save Tuesday and should continue to operate as the primary closer, but Robles is now in the mix for ninth-inning opportunities.

Twins' Hansel Robles: Earns win but blows save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (1-1) blew a save but still earned the win Sunday against Cleveland after giving up a run on a hit and a walk while fanning one across one inning.

Robles pitched the ninth inning and was unable to hold a one-run lead, as he gave up the game-tying run through a sacrifice bunt, but he was still credited with the win after the Twins added three runs in the top of the 10th. Robles owns a 1.74 ERA across 10.1 innings (10 appearances) this month.

Twins' Hansel Robles: Secures second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles pitched a 1-2-3 seventh with two strikeouts to save Thursday's 6-3 win over the Angels in Game 2 of a doubleheader.

Robles quickly retired all three Angels batters to record his second save in the past week as Minnesota's closer carousel has spun in his favor lately. Robles, Alex Colome and Taylor Rogers now have two saves apiece, though it's important to note that Rogers pitched the sixth Thursday against the meat of Los Angeles' lineup.

Twins' Hansel Robles: Grabs first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles earned the save Saturday against the A's by recording two strikeouts and allowing one hit during the ninth inning.

Taylor Rogers has given up runs in three of his past four appearances, and Robles took advantage to convert his first save of the season. The right-hander has a 3.45 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 16:9 K:BB with seven holds over 15.2 innings this season, and he could receive more ninth-inning opportunities if he continues to pitch well.

Twins' Hansel Robles: Thriving in setup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles threw a scoreless inning in Sunday's loss to the Mariners. He's thrown 4.2 scoreless innings with six strikeouts and one walk this season.

Robles was mentioned by Rocco Baldelli in spring training as a pitcher who could finish games, but he's been used in the seventh and eighth inning so far this season to set up Alex Colome. It's not a stretch to think he could figure into the closer mix if Colome continues to struggle, but he's not likely to finish games at the moment. At least Robles is showing so far that he may back to his 2019 form (2.48 ERA) after his 2020 struggles (10.26 ERA).

Twins' Hansel Robles: Reaches 96 mph in spring outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles gave up three runs (two earned) and four hits in one inning in Thursday's spring training loss to Tampa Bay, but reached 96 mph with his fastball, MLB.com reports.

Robles' velocity declined to an average 95.5 mph fastball last season from 97.1 mph in 2019, so this could be a positive sign early in camp. Robles has been mentioned by Rocco Baldelli as a closer option, but he'll likely first need to prove he's back to the form that saw him post a 2.48 ERA and 1.9 BB/9 in 2019; he's coming off a 10.26 ERA and 5.4 BB/9 in 2020.

Twins' Hansel Robles: Lands with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Twins on Tuesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

If the Twins are getting the 2019 version of Robles, who saved 23 games for the Angels while posting a 2.48 ERA, they'll be getting a high-leverage reliever for quite cheap. They'll be quite disappointed if they get the 2020 version, however, as the 30-year-old righty is coming off a year in which he struggled to a 10.26 ERA in 16.2 frames. His walk rate, which spiked from 5.7 to 12.5 percent, was the primary culprit, and given that his 2019 mark was his only time below 10 percent in that category in the last five years, a dramatic improvement might not be in the cards.

Hansel Robles: Hits open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles was non-tendered by the Angels on Wednesday.

Robles' value peaked when he saved 23 games for the Angels in 2019, but he followed that up by posting a 10.26 ERA in 16.2 innings last season. The 30-year-old righty's past success could allow him to secure a big-league deal on the open market.

Angels' Hansel Robles: Takes loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (0-2) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Dodgers. He allowed two runs on one hit and one walk while fanning two across one inning.

Robles enjoyed a solid stretch of five straight scoreless appearances between Aug. 5 and Aug. 15, but he has allowed runs in five of his last eight outings, including three of the five appearances he made this month. Robles enters the final day of the regular season sporting a career-worst 10.91 ERA in 15.2 innings across 17 appearances.

Angels' Hansel Robles: Rounding into form
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles struck out all three batters he faced in Wednesday's loss to Oakland.

After struggling mightily to begin the campaign, Robles has been dominant of late, hurling three straight scoreless one-inning outings with seven of his nine outs coming by way of strikeout during that span. His fastball is touching 96-97 mph again, per Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com, and two of the three batters he whiffed Wednesday went down swinging. Ty Buttrey has yet to allow a run since taking over as the top ninth-inning option Aug. 4, but should he falter, it stands to reason that Robles could eventually return to the closer role.

Angels' Hansel Robles: Displays increased velocity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles hit 97 mph on his fastball for the first time this season in Sunday's loss to Texas, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports. The right-hander allowed one hit and struck out three batters in a scoreless inning of work in the contest.

Robles was bumped from the closer role last week after a miserable start to the campaign, but he has now posted consecutive scoreless outings. The 29-year-old's appearance Sunday was far from the intensity of a save chance -- he came on in the sixth inning with the Angels trailing by three -- but the increased fastball speed is promising nonetheless. Per Torres, Robles has struggled getting his adrenaline up in empty stadiums this season, and the team recently tried to address the issue "nutritionally."

Angels' Hansel Robles: Out of closer role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Joe Maddon said during his pregame interview Tuesday that Robles is no longer the closer and the team will go "closer by committee," Trent Rush of Angels Radio Network reports.

Maddon backed Robles as his closer just Sunday but quickly changed his tune, and indeed passed Robles over for a save chance Tuesday night. Ty Buttrey got the ball and converted a four-out save against Seattle. Robles still has not pitched since Aug. 1, when he allowed three runs on four hits -- including two home runs -- to blow the save against the Astros. Robles has given up nine earned runs total in 3.2 innings this season.

Angels' Hansel Robles: Not available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles is not available to pitch Sunday after pitching two days in a row, but manager Joe Maddon has not changed him out of the closer role yet, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. "Robles will not pitch today after two in a row," Maddon said. "If, in fact, I wanted to do something like that (remove Robles as the closer), I would not tell you guys first."

Maddon's quote is obviously not a confirmation that Robles will keep the job, and it's not comforting that he won't announce a role change before it happens. In fact, even if someone else gets the save chance Sunday, there's no guarantee that Robles won't be called upon when the next opportunity for a save arises..

Angels' Hansel Robles: Serves up two homers in blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles was charged with the blown save after allowing three runs on four hits while recording one strikeout during the ninth inning of Saturday's extra-inning victory over the Astros.

Robles was given a 3-1 lead to start the ninth inning, but he gave up a solo homer to Josh Reddick and a two-run shot to George Springer to put the Angels in the hole. He avoided the loss since the Halos rallied for a run in the bottom of the frame. The right-hander didn't have major control issues as he issued 18 of his 24 pitches for strikes, but he clearly wasn't fooling Houston's lineup. Robles surrendered only six home runs over 71 appearances in 2019, but he's already allowed three home runs through four outings this season.

Angels' Hansel Robles: Notches first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles picked up the save in Saturday's win over the Athletics, tossing one perfect inning and striking out one batter.

Robles had a disappointing season debut against Oakland on Friday, but he bounced back with a clean ninth inning in his first save opportunity Saturday. The right-hander threw 12 of 18 pitches for strikes and got ahead of each of the three batters he faced in the outing. Robles converted 23 of 27 save chances in his first season as a full-time closer last season.

Angels' Hansel Robles: Charged with loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robles (0-1) was charged against the A's on Friday after allowing three runs (two earned) on one hit and a walk while striking out two across 1.1 innings.

Robles came into the ninth inning with Angels trailing by one and delivered a scoreless frame. He then returned in the 10th after the A's evened the score, 3-3. Unfortunately, Robles struggled this time around, hitting Ramon Laureano with a pitch, then striking out Matt Chapman before walking Kris Davis and loading up the bases thanks to the new MLB extra inning rule, which places a batter on second to start extra innings. Robles was then replaced by southpaw Hoby Milner, who gave up a grand slam to Matt Olson on his first pitch. Despite the loss, Robles is locked in for the closer role in Anaheim.
