Astros' Ken Giles: Earns second save Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his second save of the season in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Angels.

This should be comforting to those fantasy owners who bought in on Giles as the Astros' closer. This was just his second save opportunity of the season as manager A.J. Hinch has also given chances to Chris Devenski (two) and Brad Peacock (one). Hinch mentioned last week that Giles was dealing with some back tightness, but the right-hander has tossed four scoreless innings since and hasn't given up a basehit over his last six appearances.

Astros' Ken Giles: Throws clean eighth inning Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles struck out one in a perfect eighth inning of Sunday's 7-1 win over the White Sox.

It's been five games since the Astros needed someone to close out a game, so we're still not sure exactly where Giles stands. He came on in the eighth inning while Chris Devenski mopped up the ninth, which may be an indicator. The good news is that Giles is pitching after manager A.J. Hinch discussed some back tightness the reliever was experiencing last week. Giles hasn't walked a batter all season and hasn't allowed a hit in his last three outings, but the strikeouts are down -- just three over seven innings. This is a guy that fanned nearly 12 per nine innings last season. His velocity averaged 96 mph Sunday, a few ticks below where he usually sits, but not necessarily alarming. For now, you'll need to hold onto Giles for any potential saves and wait to hear definitive intelligence about his role going forward.

Astros' Ken Giles: Throws low-leverage inning Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles (back) pitched a scoreless ninth inning in Friday's 10-0 win over the White Sox.

It was good to see a Giles sighting, even if it was in low-leverage, mop-up duty. He had been declared unavailable Thursday due to a back issue that cropped up during the week, but it appears a stint on the disabled list will be avoided. His outing Friday was the first time on a mound in a game in seven days. There's still the issue of whether he's the team's closer, even if part of the mix with Chris Devenski and Brad Peacock.

Astros' Ken Giles: Dealing with back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager A.J. Hinch said it's doubtful that Giles will be available for Thursday's game against Seattle due to back tightness, Chandler Rome of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Hinch also stated that Giles had reported the back pain when the club arrived in Seattle on Monday, and that it has "progressively gotten a little bit worse to where he can't go yet." The reliever hasn't pitched since Saturday against Texas and was bypassed during a save opportunity during Tuesday's victory. Though Hinch added that there hasn't been any talk of a DL stint at this time for Giles, his inactivity has been concerning. In his absence, Chris Devenski will likely man the ninth-inning role.

Astros' Ken Giles: Bypassed for save Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles was not used in a save situation Tuesday in Houston's 4-1 win over Seattle.

This seemed like a good spot for Giles. He was well rested, having pitched last Saturday, but manager A.J. Hinch went to Chris Devenski for a second straight save opportunity. This is obviously not a good sign for those who own Giles, who must wonder what his role is in the Astros' bullpen.
