Padres' Kirby Yates: Rewarded for saves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates agreed to a one-year, $3.0625 million deal with the Padres, avoiding arbitration, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

He earned every penny of this raise, logging a 2.14 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 90 strikeouts in 63 innings last year. While Yates is entering his age-32 season, he will still have another year of arbitration in 2020 before he can hit the open market for a proper payday.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Nabs 12th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates fired a perfect inning with two strikeouts and a save in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Giants.

Yates' career year continued with his sixth consecutive save and 12th since taking over as closer after the All-Star break. The 31-year-old has been one of the bigger reliever surprises this season, posting a 2.07 ERA and 12.7 K/9 in addition to his second-half save contributions.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Bags ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates gave up two hits and a run but still picked up the save against the Mariners on Wednesday, striking out one and walking none in the ninth inning to close out San Diego's 5-4 victory.

Yates made it interesting after giving up a pair hits in the ninth, including a solo homer to Kyle Seager, before eventually slamming the door and preserving the one-run victory. The right-hander now has nine saves in 10 chances on the season to go along with a 2.06 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 79 strikeouts across 56.2 innings.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Sharp in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates returned from the bereavement list Monday, firing a scoreless inning with a walk and two strikeouts in a 6-2 win over Arizona.

Yates wasn't afforded a save opportunity after his offense plated a pair in the eighth inning, but he performed well nonetheless. The 31-year-old will resume his role as the Friars' top closing option after posting a 2.05 ERA and 5.2 K/BB ratio over 52.2 innings.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Reinstated from bereavement list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates (personal) was reinstated from the bereavement list Monday.

Yates will rejoin the Padres after missing the team's weekend series against the Rockies. The 31-year-old owns an impressive 2.09 ERA and 71:13 K:BB through 51.2 innings this season and should immediately resume his role as San Diego's closer.
