Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Collects 12th save of season Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero pitched a scoreless inning on one hit while striking out one to earn his 12th save Friday against the Blue Jays.

Rivero was protecting a two-run lead and was able to convert the save after throwing strikes on 11 of 12 pitches. In two months as the Pirates' closer, he's been a great fantasy asset, as he's closed out 12 of 13 chances while posting an excellent 1.21 ERA along with a 0.78 WHIP.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Picks up 11th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero recorded the final two outs of Thursday's game against the Tigers to earn his 11th save of the season. He allowed one hit and struck out one.

Rivero allowed a couple inherited runners to score on a double and a groundout, but he ultimately nailed down the win for Pittsburgh, and is now 11-for-12 in save opportunities. The 26-year-old lefty has been virtually untouchable against same-handed batters this year, holding southpaws to a .074/.149/.088 line.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Notches 10th save with clean inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero recorded one strikeout in a clean inning of work to notch his 10th save of the season Tuesday against the Tigers.

Rivero threw eight of his 12 pitches while retiring the side in order. This dominant showing was a welcome sight for the left-hander, who had allowed four runs in his last three innings and blew his first save of the season on Sunday. Rivero should be over this bumpy patch in short order and looks to be on his way to posting strong numbers down the stretch.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Blows first save of season Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero blew his first save of the season Sunday against the Padres, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks during an inning of work. He struck out one.

Rivero recorded the final out of the eighth inning, but he loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth before allowing a two-run single to tie the game. With the save blown and the left-hander at 41 pitches, Joaquin Benoit was called upon to finish out the ninth before the Pirates went on to win in extra innings. Rivero still owns a strong 1.27 ERA to go along with a microscopic 0.78 WHIP and should rebound from this bumpy outing in short order.

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.
