Padres' Kirby Yates: Notches save Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates picked up the save Saturday against the Marlins. He registered one strikeout over a 16-pitch, clean inning.

Brad Hand had already tossed a lockdown inning, so the Padres turned to Yates to finish things off after taking the lead in the eighth on a Travis Jankowski RBI single. Yates has allowed just three earned runs over his last 20 outings (20.1 IP) while notching 24 strikeouts over that span. He's a valuable setup man in front of Hand.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Gets save against Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates picked up his first save of the season on Sunday, working around three hits to record a scoreless ninth inning and close out San Diego's 6-3 victory over the Reds.

Yates got the nod for ninth-inning duties in this contest, as regular closer Brad Hand was brought in an inning early for matchup purposes with the Reds sending left-handers Joey Votto and Scooter Gennett to the plate in the frame. Hand has been solid all season, so Yates probably won't see many save opportunities outside of scenarios like this, or when Hand gets rested. That said, he's been putting up great numbers in his own right, as this outing gave him a 1.29 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and a 26:6 K:BB through 21 innings this season.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Picks up eighth hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates fired a scoreless inning and struck out one en route to his eighth hold of the season in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Dodgers.

Yates has been untouchable this season, posting a 1.00 ERA with 23 strikeouts over 18 innings. The 31-year-old added a splitter to his repertoire this offseason, and the results have been phenomenal. MLB.com's AJ Cassavell points out that opposing batters are 4-for-26 with 13 strikeouts in at-bats that Yates finishes with the split. His 2.14 FIP indicates that this newfound success is no mirage.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Continues strong start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates struck out two over a clean inning en route to his fifth hold in Wednesday's 2-1 win over Washington.

The 31-year-old now owns a 0.79 ERA and 11.1 K/9 over 11.1 innings. Brad Hand has been on a roll of late, so only an injury or a rest day would open up any save opportunities for Yates. The veteran's excellent ratios and clear setup role make him a strong option in holds leagues.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Comes off DL on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates (ankle) was activated off the 10-day disabled list Thursday, Bob Scanlan of FOX Sports San Diego reports.

The Padres optioned the struggling Luis Perdomo down to Triple-A El Paso to clear a spot for Yates as he returns from an ankle injury. Yates cleared his final hurdle in his rehab Wednesday by throwing a live batting practice session and now stands to reclaim his role as the Padres' setup man. He's been a reliable source of strikeouts in recent years, including having a 13.98 K/9 mark in 2017 and a 12.27 K/9 through five appearances in 2018.
