Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Picks up 19th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles picked up his 19th save of the season Friday against the Marlins, allowing one hit and one walk across a scoreless ninth inning. He struck out one.

Giles worked around a leadoff single and a walk to convert his seventh save opportunity of August. The 27-year-old has struggled mightily at times, but he's struck out more than a batter per inning (9.7 K/9) and is a perfect 19-for-19 in save opportunities on the year.

Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Nails down 18th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to pick up his 18th save of the season in an 8-6 win over the Phillies.

A two-out double by Carlos Santana made things interesting, but that's par for the course for Giles in the ninth inning. Despite the struggles that got him chased out of Houston, the 27-year-old still has yet to blow a save this year, and his 43:5 K:BB in 40.1 innings might be a better predictor of his future performance than his 5.58 ERA.

Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Notches 16th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles pitched a perfect ninth inning to pick up his 16th save Monday against the Orioles.

He did not allow a baserunner or record a strikeout, using an efficient 10 pitches to get the final three outs. Giles has successfully picked up the save in each of his last four appearances, giving up just one run on a solo home run while striking out four over that four-inning stretch. He has a firm hold on the closer role in Toronto.

Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Collects save despite homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles picked up the save Wednesday, allowing one run while striking out one over one inning in the 6-5 win over the Royals.

Giles allowed a solo home run to Ryan O'Hearn with one out to bring the margin within one, but he was able to shut the door after that to lock down his third save since coming to Toronto. The 27-year-old sports a bloated 6.03 ERA -- and a 10.80 mark with the Blue Jays -- but he figures to continue being the main option at the backend of the Toronto bullpen going forward.

Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Gets second save with new club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles struck out two in a clean ninth inning for the save Tuesday against the Royals.

Giles made easy work of the Royals in the ninth inning, getting two swinging strikeouts and a soft groundout to earn his 14th save on the year. The right-hander has converted his two save opportunities for his new club, but has allowed runs to score in three of his six appearances so far for Toronto. Giles carries a 5.94 ERA and 1.32 WHIP this season, while opponents are hitting .293 off him. Regardless, Giles figures to continue seeing save chances in Toronto.
