Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Collects 25th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez slammed the door in the ninth Friday against the Cardinals, as he tossed a scoreless inning while allowing a hit and striking out one.

Vazquez did allow the tying run to reach base, but he retired the final two batters as the Pirates secured a 7-6 victory. He's served as a dominant closer yet again in 2018, successfully converting 15 straight saves. Vazquez sports a 3.09 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 65 strikeouts across 46.2 frames this season.

Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Picks up 24th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez allowed a run on two hits in the ninth inning Tuesday against the Cubs but escaped with his 24th save of the season.

Addison Russell followed David Bote's leadoff single with an RBI base hit, but Russell was out trying to stretch a triple, and Vazquez then retired Anthony Rizzo and Ben Zobrist to end the threat. Vazquez has converted his last 14 save opportunities -- he hasn't blown a save since May 31 -- and looks plenty secure in his role. Keone Kela, acquired from Texas on Monday, is expected to serve as the Pirates' primary setup man down the stretch.

Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Yields rare home run Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez allowed a two-run homer to Yonder Alonso on Wednesday, snapping a 15-game, 15.2-inning scoreless streak during which the reliever whiffed 29 batters.

The home run was just the second Vazquez has allowed to a left-handed batter in his four-year career -- he surrendered a three-run shot to Jay Bruce in June of 2016. Although the Pirates have won 11 of their last 12 games, Vazquez has thrown just two times since July 14 because of the team's lopsided victories. He's compiled 13 saves, a 1.33 ERA and 36:7 K:BB after blowing four of five save opportunities at the end of May.

Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Saves both ends of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez recorded a one-out save during the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Brewers, striking out the only batter he faced.

His 23rd closure of 2018 marked his second of the day, having already slammed the door in the opener. Vazquez hasn't allowed a run in his last 15 appearances, during which he's wrapped up 11 games. He's put to rest any struggles that arose around the turn of the calendar from May to June, though Pittsburgh's next few weeks might determine whether they'll keep trying for a postseason berth. Deciding to start an aggressive rebuild could lead them to dealing Vazquez into a spot where he'd receive fewer save opportunities.

Pirates' Felipe Vazquez: Shuts door Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vazquez picked up his 22nd save of the year, tossing a scoreless ninth inning in the first half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Brewers.

Vazquez shut the door with a one-run lead, allowing a two-out single but never getting into any real trouble. He's now set a career high in saves and has a solid 3.07 ERA backed up by an excellent 1.97 FIP.
