Astros' Ryan Pressly: Blown save Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly blew the save Tuesday against the Giants. He allowed one run on two hits and one walk while fanning two in one inning. He also threw a wild pitch.

Pressly entered the ninth inning with a one-run lead, but he couldn't get the job and allowed the Giants to tie the game on an RBI single from Darin Ruf. Things could've gone worse for the 31-year-old right-hander as he had Hunter Pence at third with two outs, but he struck out Wilmer Flores to end the threat. Pressly now has gone 1-for-3 in save opportunities this season.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Locks down save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly allowed two hits in one scoreless inning to earn the save in Monday's 6-4 win over the Giants.

Reliever Josh James struggled in the ninth inning, creating a save situation. Pressly allowed two inherited runners to score, but was able to preserve the lead in the end. The 31-year-old Pressly is now 1-for-2 in save chances since taking over for the injured Roberto Osuna (elbow), and he figures to get most of the ninth-inning duties going forward.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Takes loss, blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly (0-1) was charged with the loss and a blown save Thursday against the Diamondbacks, surrendering two runs on three hits and a walk without recording any outs.

Tasked with protecting a one-run lead in the ninth, Pressly did quite the opposite. The 31-year-old unraveled in his first save opportunity, loading up the bases and giving up a two-run, walk-off single to Kole Calhoun to end the disastrous outing. Pressly's track record would seem to make him an appealing closer option with Roberto Osuna (elbow) out, but he has dealt with elbow and thumb issues of his own lately, and Thursday's results suggest he may still not be right physically.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Leading candidate to close
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly is likely the top candidate to close for the Astros after Roberto Osuna (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, David Barron of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Pressly went unused Sunday in the Astros' come-from-behind 6-5 win in 11 innings, but manager Dusty Baker may just have wanted to be conservative with the right-hander's usage after he made his season debut just one day earlier. The 31-year-old had been slowed since the start of summer camp with a blister on his right index finger and a sore elbow, and it's worth noting that he developed a cut above the thumbnail on his pitching hand in Saturday's outing. That shouldn't be an issue for Pressly when the Astros return to action Tuesday in Arizona, but he could still need some time to shake off the rust and reemerge as the late-inning ace he has been for Houston over the past two seasons. If Baker ends up going in a different direction at closer, Blake Taylor, Bryan Abreu and Cy Sneed are the next-best bets for saves.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Dealing with cut on thumb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly pitched two-thirds of an inning in Saturday's loss to the Angels but left after having trainers come to the mound to look at a cut on the cuticle above his thumbnail, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. However, manager Dusty Baker downplayed the issue after the game. "Fortunately for us, he was alright," Baker said. "We got him out of there because we didn't want him to throw too many pitches because that's his first outing."

Pressly's status takes on a greater urgency following Chris Devenski's trip to the IL and Roberto Osuna leaving Saturday's game with arm discomfort. There's a chance that Pressly could close immediately. Other options include Bryan Abreu and Cy Sneed in the short-term.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Could be available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly (elbow) could be available for Saturday's game against the Angels, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Pressly hasn't appeared in a game for the Astros this season as he deals with elbow soreness, but manager Dusty Baker said that the right-hander could be available Saturday. However, Roberto Osuna has a firm hold on the closer's role despite his absence for the first several games.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Traveling with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly (elbow) will travel with the team this weekend but is unavailable to pitch Wednesday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

The team continues to operate as though Pressly can avoid a stint on the injured list, but considering he is dealing with elbow soreness, we can't rule anything out. Roberto Osuna recorded his first save Monday and has a firm hold on the closer's role.

July 28, 2020 06:40 PM
Astros' Ryan Pressly: Could avoid injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Astros manager Dusty Baker is hopeful that Pressly (elbow) will be able to avoid the injured list, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

It's nothing concrete, but it does sound as though Pressly's elbow soreness may not be too serious. He's yet to appear in a game this season and appears to have missed his window as the Astros' temporary closer, as Roberto Osuna recorded his first save of the year Monday.

July 27, 2020 10:36 PM
Astros' Ryan Pressly: Dealing with elbow soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly has elbow soreness and is day-to-day, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

This explains why we haven't seen Pressly pitch in a game this season. His elbow apparently started barking when he was warming up during Sunday's game. While manager Dusty Baker says Pressly is day-to-day, the team will likely run tests on his elbow and provide a more substantial diagnosis in the coming days. In the meantime, it would seem that Roberto Osuna is the clear closer.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Throws perfect inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly started Tuesday's exhibition game against the Royals and set the side down in order in his one inning of work, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Pressly, who had been dealing with a blister on his right index finger, showed no effects during a surprise start. With rain threatening a cancellation, the Astros scratched starter Josh James and used a steady stream of relievers to get through the nine innings. Pressly struck out the first two batters on his way to a 1-2-3 inning on 12 pitches, and his fastball approached 96 MPH. "I was really happy with my breaking stuff, the fastball had some life to it," Pressly said. "I'm really excited with where I'm at compared to the end of last year. Everything is moving better and more in sync so I'm excited to get the season going." He'll open the season as Houston's closer while Roberto Osuna (not injury related) is unavailable.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Named closer in waiting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Astros manager Dusty Baker said Monday that Pressly (finger) will "probably" close games for Houston if Roberto Osuna (not injury related) is not ready to go for the start of the season, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Arguably the most dominant non-closing reliever in baseball since arriving in Houston at the 2018 trade deadline, Pressly was already widely assumed to be the odds-on favorite to fill in for Osuna if needed, but it's nice to hear Baker essentially confirm as much in advance of Opening Day. Baker has thus far been cryptic about Osuna's status in advance of the opener, as the incumbent closer didn't travel with the club to Kansas City this week for a pair of exhibitions and has yet to throw off a mound since reporting late to summer camp "through no fault of his own," according to the skipper. Once he gets back on a mound, Osuna probably won't need much time to ramp up, but his uncertain timeline could at least give Pressly a window to claim the closing gig and potentially run away with it. Pressly was stalled early in camp by a blister on his right index finger, but Rome relays that he's slated to appear in Tuesday's exhibition.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Could be temporary closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly (finger) will be the next man up if Roberto Osuna isn't in game shape by Opening Day, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Osuna isn't injured, but he showed up to camp behind his teammates and may not have time to get ready to close games at the start of the season. Pressly has issues of his own, as he's been battling a blister in recent days, but there's a good chance he'll be the Astros' top bullpen arm for the first few games of the season. There's a case to be made that he's the team's best reliever even with Osuna available, as he beat Osuna in ERA (2.32 to 2.63), FIP (2.66 to 3.21), strikeout rate (34.1 percent to 28.8 percent) and groundball rate (50.8 percent to 38.8 percent) last season, but there's been no indication that Houston intends for Pressly to take over the role on a permanent basis.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Has finger blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly was held out of Tuesday's intrasquad game due to a blister on his right index finger, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

The initial report did not include a reason for Pressly being held out Tuesday, but this news clarifies the matter. That the injury is merely a blister should be a relief to those counting on Pressly for fantasy teams.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Held out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly didn't pitch Tuesday due to an undisclosed ailment, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Pressly was scheduled to throw Tuesday, but manager Dusty Baker revealed that he was unable to do so because of an undisclosed ailment. The nature and severity of the issue are unclear, as is whether or not his availability for Opening Day will be affected. The Astros are scheduled to begin the regular season against the Mariners on July 24.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Throws live BP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly threw live batting practice Tuesday for the first time since joining summer camp, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Pressly, who reported his mechanics were off during spring training, was pleased with Tuesday's session and declared himself ready to go. Houston's top setup man focused on his curveball during the session. "We're a couple of weeks away, so I think everybody is kind of getting arms in shape and trying to maneuver around everything that's happening," Pressly said. Pressly said his right knee is physically fine after he underwent arthroscopic surgery last August.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Makes spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly allowed one walk and struck out one over a scoreless inning in Wednesday's spring game against the Marlins.

This was Pressly's first spring appearance. Both he and closer Roberto Osuna made their debuts, pitching the fourth and fifth innings, respectively. They are the back end of Houston's bullpen. Pressly is one of the best setup men in the league; if your league values holds, then Pressly's your guy. He tied for the MLB lead with 31 holds in 2019 and also picked up three saves.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Makes roster for World Series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly (knee) is on the Astros' World Series roster.

After leaving Game 6 of the ALCS with right knee discomfort, there was some uncertainty regarding Pressly's availability for the World Series. However, the 30-year-old should be available as Houston's setup man for the series against the Nationals after being included on the roster.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Expected to make roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly (knee) is expected to be on the Astros' roster for the World Series, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Pressly left the final game of the ALCS on Saturday with right knee discomfort, a potential concern given that he underwent knee surgery in August. The Astros anticipate him being ready to go, but he's yet to be officially cleared.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Downplays knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly (knee) said he'll be ready to pitch in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday against the Nationals, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Pressly exited Game 6 of the ALCS on Saturday with right knee discomfort, but he said some scar tissue in his knee came off, which was something he expected to occur at some point after undergoing knee surgery in August. The 30-year-old will now have Sunday and Monday to rest up after the Astros clinched their trip to the World Series with Saturday's walkoff victory.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Leaves with knee discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly was removed from Game 6 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Saturday due to right knee discomfort, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Pressly delivered only one pitch but appeared to injure himself while fielding a grounder between the mound and first base. The 30-year-old underwent surgery on the same knee back in August, but it's unclear if he aggravated that injury or is dealing with a new issue. The Astros labeled Pressly day-to-day and his status for Sunday's Game 7, if it's necessary, remains up in the air.
