Astros' Ryan Pressly: Takes loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly (1-3) was charged with the loss against the Rangers on Wednesday, recording two outs while allowing one run on two hits. He walked one and struck out one.

Pressly came into a scoreless game in the ninth inning and immediately gave up a leadoff single to Leody Taveras. He then allowed Taveras to score on a ground-rule double by Joey Gallo, giving the Rangers the lead for good. It was the third loss of the season for the right-hander, who has converted 10 saves in 13 opportunities. On the season, Pressly holds a 4.00 ERA and 1.56 WHIP.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Grabs 10th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly allowed one hit and struck out one while throwing a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Rangers.

Pressly came in with a three-run lead. He allowed a two-out single, but was never in true danger and tallied his 10th save with relative ease. After a bumpy start in his tenure as the closer, Pressly has turned in a scoreless performance in eight of his last 10 outings. He should get the majority of the saves for the team down the stretch.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Notches ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly picked up the save against the Dodgers on Saturday, allowing two hits in a scoreless ninth inning while striking out one.

Pressly received the opportunity to close out the game after Houston rallied for five runs in the top of the ninth inning. He gave up a single and a double but emerged unscathed thanks to a double play and a strikeout. The right-hander has proven to be a reliable closer after taking over for Roberto Osuna (elbow) in early August; since blowing his first save after assuming ninth-inning duties, Pressly has converted eight of 10 save chances while registering a 2.45 ERA and 20:4 K:BB over 14.2 innings.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Stuck with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly (1-2) allowed a run on a hit and a walk over two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Athletics. He also hit a batter.

Pressly entered the game with the score tied at two. His two outs came in the form of fielder's choices, but a walkoff single from Ramon Laureano left the Astros' closer with a loss. The 31-year-old Pressly has a 4.11 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and eight saves in 17 appearances spanning 15.1 innings this season.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Preserves nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly allowed one hit and struck out one over a scoreless ninth inning to record his eighth save in a 5-4 win over the Athletics in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Pressly, who had missed out on save chances in both games of Saturday's doubleheader because he was unavailable, was fresh in his first outing since last Friday. After a shaky start as the closer, Pressly is 7-of-8 in save chances with a 1.64 ERA and 17 strikeouts over his last 11 appearances.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Not available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly was not available for Saturday's doubleheader, Richard Justice of reports.

It was a tough day for manager Dusty Baker not to have Pressly available, as both games evolved into save situations. Without Pressly, who had thrown 49 pitches while pitching three of the previous four days, Baker was forced to go with unproven rookie relievers to close both games.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Records seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly earned the save against the Rangers on Wednesday after tossing a perfect ninth inning that included two strikeouts.

Called upon to protect a 2-1 lead in the ninth, Pressly barely hesitated in retiring all three of his batters, throwing 11-of-14 pitches for strikes. The 31-year-old now sports a 4.26 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with seven saves across 14 appearances.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Blows third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly was tagged with the blown save against the Rangers on Tuesday, allowing one run one two hits in one inning while striking out one.

Pressly was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the top of the ninth inning, but Elvis Andrus greeted him with a homer leading off the frame to spoil the save opportunity. After a rough start to the campaign, Pressly had converted each of his previous five save chances, so Tuesday's hiccup is unlikely to threaten his role as the team's closer.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Closes out both ends of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly recorded the save in both games of Saturday's doubleheader sweep of the A's, throwing two perfect innings and striking out four.

After fanning one batter in the matinee, Pressly was even more dominant in the nightcap, striking out the side on only 11 pitches. The 31-year-old is up to six saves on the season, and his efforts Saturday lowered his ERA to 4.22, although his 15:4 K:BB through 10.2 innings offers a better picture of how he's pitched.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Secures fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly earned the save in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Angels, allowing one hit with two strikeouts and zero walks in a scoreless seventh inning.

The right-hander gave up a single to Albert Pujols to start the frame, but he put down the next three batters to lock down the victory. Pressly has converted four of six save chances and has given up five runs on 12 hits with a 11:4 K:BB through 8.2 innings.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Records third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly allowed one earned run on one hit but earned the save Thursday against the Rockies.

Pressly entered the game with a three-run cushion. He allowed a leadoff triple, but retired the next three batters he faced to lock down his third save of the season. After a rocky start to the campaign, Pressly has allowed only two earned runs across his last seven innings while striking out eight. He should serve as the Astros' primary closer until Roberto Osuna (elbow) is able to return.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Claims first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly (1-1) struck out one over a scoreless ninth inning and picked up the win against the Mariners on Sunday.

Pressly was the beneficiary of Kyle Tucker's walkoff home run in the bottom of the ninth. After a stint on the injured list and shaky start, Pressly is settling in with one run allowed over 5.1 innings, spanning five appearances.

Astros' Ryan Pressly: Notches second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pressly picked up the save against Seattle on Saturday, pitching a perfect ninth inning and striking out two.

Pressly rebounded from a blown save in his last appearance with a clean and easy outing against the Mariners. The right-hander needed only eight pitches -- all of which were strikes -- to retire the side in order and secure his second save of the campaign. Pressly appears locked into the closer role for the time being, though Roberto Osuna (elbow) is hoping to return to action later this season.

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 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.
