Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Notches ninth save of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero fired a perfect ninth inning Thursday against the Brewers en route to his ninth save of the season.

The southpaw surprisingly didn't strike anyone out, but he avoided any late drama with three harmless groundouts. Thursday's outing lowered both his ERA and WHIP to 0.70, making Rivero a very reliable option for saves despite not occupying the role for very long.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Heavy usage may lead to day of rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero has thrown 35 pitches over the last two days and may not be available Wednesday against the Brewers.

He picked up saves Monday and Tuesday, but has thrown three straight days only one time in 2017, when he appeared from April 12-14. In those games, he totaled 41 pitches. Given the crucial nature of Pittsburgh's series against division-leading Milwaukee, Rivero could get the call again Wednesday, but the Bucs would probably like to stay away from him if possible. The lefty leads the league with 47 appearances.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Strikes out side for eighth save of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero allowed two hits while striking out the side during a scoreless inning of work to earn his eighth save of the season Tuesday against the Brewers.

The usually stellar Rivero allowed back-to-back hits with one out in the inning, but he buckled down to strike out the final two men he faced to escape the jam. He already has two saves and a win under his belt in three scoreless appearances since the All-Star break and looks to be among the elite relievers in Major League Baseball at the moment.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Records four-out save Monday versus Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero retired all four batters he faced and recorded one strikeout to earn his seventh save of the season Monday against the Brewers.

Rivero, who was called upon to get the final out with a man on in the eighth inning, mowed down the side in short order in the ninth. He threw 14 of 19 pitches for strikes while lowering his impeccable ERA to 0.72 and his WHIP to a similarly stellar 0.68. Rivero began the year as a setup man in the Pirates' bullpen, but he has blossomed into a top-notch closer and doesn't appear likely to give the job up in the near future.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Cruises to sixth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero threw 1.1 scoreless innings against the Cubs on Saturday en route to his sixth save of the season. He issued one walk and struck out one batter.

Rivero has run away with the closer job since Tony Watson was removed from the ninth-inning role, as he's successfully converted all six of his save opportunities. The lefty has been dominant all season long with a 0.76 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 55:12 K:BB over 47.1 innings. There's a case to be made for Rivero as a top-10 closer heading into the second half.
