Astros' Ken Giles: Unlikely to be used in save chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles most likely wouldn't get the ball if a save chance arises in Sunday's World Series Game 5 against the Dodgers, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

He has given up 10 runs on 12 hits (including three home runs) and five walks in 7.2 innings this postseason en route to a blown save and two losses. Will Harris or Chris Devenski could be options to close, or manager A.J. Hinch could opt to just play the matchups. There's also a chance that Lance McCullers, who is scheduled to start a potential Game 7, could be used in a high-leverage relief role in Game 5.

Astros' Ken Giles: Records save number 34
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles allowed one hit over a scoreless ninth inning to record his 34th save in Friday's 3-2 win over Boston.

Like most pitchers, starters or relievers, Giles has wobbled as the calendar reached September. He's allowed baserunners in each of his last six outings and has a monthly high .262 batting-average-against over the final month of the season. But in a results-oriented role, he's converted seven of eight save opportunities.

Astros' Ken Giles: Picks up 33rd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles pitched a scoreless ninth inning to collect his 33rd save of the season during Friday's win over the Angels.

Giles has now pitched six scoreless innings over his past six appearances to improve to an impressive 2.37 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 82 strikeouts through 60.2 innings for the campaign. He's converted 33 of his 37 save opportunities and projects to remain a high-end reliever in all fantasy settings closing out games for the Astros.

Astros' Ken Giles: Strikes out side for 32nd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles allowed a hit but was able to strike out the side Tuesday against the White Sox to pick up his 32nd save of the year.

Giles allowed a single to Tim Anderson to open the ninth inning, but was able to strike out the next three batters on 13 pitches to preserve the Astros' 3-1 lead and pick up his fifth save of the month. Following the game, Manager A.J. Hinch reported that Giles wouldn't be available for Wednesday's contest after appearing in four of the past five games, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. Will Harris or Chris Devenski would likely get the ninth-inning nod if a save opportunity were to arise.

Astros' Ken Giles: Closes out Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles recorded his 31st save, working around a double and striking out one in Friday's 5-2 win over the Mariners.

Giles has bounced back nicely after a blown save Sept. 8, registering a hold and two saves in three outings since. All three of those appearances have come in the last four days, so Giles may not be available Saturday.
