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: Put on bereavement leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates was placed on the bereavement list prior to Friday's game.

Yates will be away from the team for the rest of this weekend's series against the Rockies and could miss up to seven games. Look for Craig Stammen or Jose Castillo to man down to ninth-inning role in his absence.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Earns fifth save of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates struck out two in a clean ninth inning to pick up the save Tuesday against the Rockies.

Yates entered the game to protect a one-run lead in Coors Field and retired the side on 12 pitches (eight strikes) to earn his fifth of the year. Yates had allowed runs to score in his previous two outings, but even so he's still sporting an excellent 1.82 ERA on the year to go along with a 0.95 WHIP and a .190 batting average against. The 31-year-old is solidifying a firm grip on the closer role in San Diego.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Strikes out two for third save of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates struck out a pair in a scoreless inning of work to earn his third save of the season Monday against the Mets.

Yates was called upon to close things out as his side carried a one-run lead into the bottom of the ninth. The first man reached on an error by Eric Hosmer, but he still proceeded to mow down the next three in dominant fashion to earn the save. Yates carries a strong 1.40 ERA to go along with a stellar 0.85 WHIP this season and should be a solid fantasy option as long as he continues to thrive in the closer's role.

Padres' Kirby Yates: In line for ninth-inning role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates is set to take over the closer role following the trade of Brad Hand to Cleveland on Thursday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

In addition to Hand, the Padres dealt Adam Cimber in exchange for catching prospect Francisco Mejia, further depleting the club's bullpen. Yates has logged a 1.43 ERA and 0.88 WHIP across 39 appearances this season, to go along with a fantastic 48:11 K:BB over 37.2 innings. Since Hand served as San Diego's closer, Yates has only recorded a pair of saves in 2018, though his 16 holds are only four fewer than he managed all of last year. It's possible, however, that Yates will be on the move in the coming weeks as he's a 31-year-old in the midst of the best season of his career, and he may be coveted by playoff contenders seeking a bullpen upgrade.
