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

Yates got the save against the Mariners on Wednesday, working around one hit to throw a scoreless ninth inning and close out San Diego's 1-0 victory. He didn't record a walk or a strikeout.

Yates continues to rack up saves at a torrid clip, as this was his 12th straight successfully converted opportunity to start the season. He allowed a bloop single to Daniel Vogelbach in this contest, but was able to get Domingo Santana to ground into a game-ending double play to protect the one-run lead. He's been the best closer in baseball at the outset of 2019, as this latest easy effort gives him a 0.64 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP to go along with a stellar 20:3 K:BB through 14 innings.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Records 10th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates allowed one hit and struck out one batter in a scoreless ninth inning to secure the save Sunday against the Reds.

Yates entered the game with a one-run lead and managed to record his 10th save of the season despite allowing a leadoff single. The Padres continue to win close games, as 10 of their 12 wins have resulted in save chances for Yates. Despite the heavy workload, he's had no trouble shutting the door on teams, racking up 19 strikeouts across just 12 frames.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Nails down ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates gave up a hit and struck out the side in the ninth inning to record his ninth save of the season in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

The right-hander has been almost untouchable to begin the year, racking up a 17:3 K:BB in 10 innings to go along with a 0.90 ERA and nine straight successful save conversions. With the Padres looking like a legit contender for the NL West title in the early going, Yates should continue getting plenty of opportunities.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Notches save No. 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his eighth save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

The 32-year-old has put together a brilliant start to the season, converting all eight of his save chances with a 1.00 ERA and 14:3 K:BB through nine innings. Yates' numbers in 2018 suggested he was ready to emerge as an elite closing option for the Padres, and so far he's done nothing to dispel that notion.

Padres' Kirby Yates: Nabs seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates got the save against the Giants on Wednesday, working around a hit and a walk to hurl a scoreless ninth inning and close out the Padres' 3-1 victory. He struck out one.

It wasn't smooth sailing for the right-hander, who allowed the tying runs to reach base, but he worked his way out of the jam to record a game-ending strikeout and bag his seventh save of the season. While this wasn't his sharpest outing, Yates is off to a great start, as he's given up just one run in his eight appearances and has been making the most of his opportunities with the Padres playing in a lot of close games at the outset of the season.
