Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Picks up 21st save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero struck out one in a perfect ninth inning against the Nationals on Saturday en route to his 21st save of the season.

Rivero has been one of the best relievers in baseball throughout the season, and he's thrived in the closer role since taking over for Tony Watson in June, converting 21 of 23 opportunities. Relievers can be extremely volatile from year-to-year, but Rivero's skill are rock solid. He'll be worth a substantial investment in drafts and auctions next spring.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Notches 20th save Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to record his 20th save of the season in a 5-3 win over the Orioles.

The lefty is now 20-for-22 in converting save chances since taking over the closer role in June, and barring a major offseason acquisition, Rivero should head into 2018 at the head of the Pirates' bullpen.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Picks up 19th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero pitched a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts to collect his 19th save of the season during Sunday's win over St. Louis.

After a poor outing Friday that cost Pittsburgh a win, Rivero bounced back in strong form Sunday. He's sporting an impressive 1.72 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 10.6 K/9 to go along with his 19 saves, and Rivero checks out as a must-own fantasy asset in all settings through the final week of the season.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Unable to lock down win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero took the loss Friday, giving up two earned runs on three hits in one inning against St. Louis.

The save opportunity was just his first in more than two weeks -- he's now converted 18-of-20 chances. Rivero has thrown 41 pitches in the last three days but should be available Saturday. On a night when former Pirate bullpen arm Juan Nicasio got the win, Rivero saw his stock heading into 2018 drop just a little bit. He's by far Pittsburgh's best reliever but he holds a 4.82 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 20 games (18.2 IP) since the beginning of August.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Picks up win Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero (5-2) picked up the win after tossing a scoreless inning Wednesday against the Brewers. He struck out one batter while allowing a hit and a walk.

It wasn't Rivero's cleanest outing, but he was able to keep the score tied heading into the bottom of the ninth inning, where Adam Frazier ended things with a two-run walkoff homer. He hasn't seen many save opportunities in September -- a trend that may continue down the stretch with the Pirates struggling -- but Rivero is still valuable thanks to his impressive 1.54 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 83:19 K:BB through 70.1 innings this season.
