Astros' Ken Giles: Gets first save chance since June 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles struck out two over a scoreless 10th inning to pick up his 12th save of the season in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Rangers.

This was the first save opportunity since June 12 for Giles, who's watched Hector Rondon lock down the three previous chances, including Tuesday's win in which he expended 35 pitches. It was very likely that Rondon was not available following his labored outing Tuesday.

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

Giles was not used in a save situation Thursday as Hector Rondon closed out Houston's 1-0 win over Tampa Bay.

Giles hasn't pitched in a save situation since June 12, an opportunity he converted, although there haven't been many chances for the Astros since then. The only game that qualified as a save chance between then and Thursday night was against the Royals on June 17. In that game, Rondon got the save after Giles was used in the eighth inning to face the heart of Kansas City's lineup. Houston's bullpen situation is best described as having co-closers. Giles remains perfect in save opportunities on the year, but there's been enough bad outings in non-save situations for manager A.J. Hinch to feel the need for another ninth-inning option.

Astros' Ken Giles: Takes loss Friday against Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles (0-2) allowed one run on two hits in a non-save situation Friday against the Royals, striking out one and walking zero while taking the loss.

Giles entered a scoreless game in the ninth and allowed a single to Adalberto Mondesi and later an RBI triple to Rosell Herrera to break the tie. This was the third time in his last seven outings that Giles has allowed runs to score, and he's only had one save in one chance since the start of June. Hector Rondon, meanwhile, has gone 4-for-4 in save chances in that timeframe while carrying a 1.61 ERA on the season. Giles still sports an excellent 26:3 K:BB in 25.2 innings, but sharing time at the closer position (if not losing ground to Rondon) obviously hurts his value.

Astros' Ken Giles: Picks up hold Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giles struck out one in a scoreless eighth inning to earn his first hold of the season in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Royals.

Hector Rondon followed up in the ninth inning to pick up the save, but that manager A.J. Hinch used Giles in the eighth should not be viewed as the manager lacking confidence in him. One could argue he used Giles in the more high-leverage spot, a sign of the Hinch's confidence. Giles pitched the eighth inning against the heart of the Kansas City order while Rodon mopped up against the Royals' lower third.

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

Giles allowed one hit and struck out two over one inning to pick up the save in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Athletics.

Giles was back in the closer's role after he was bypassed three times last week for a potential save. All three of those save chances went to Hector Rondon, prompting some concern about Giles' role going forward. At the time, manager A.J. Hinch insisted Giles was still in the mix, but was merely getting a break from closing games, which appears to be the case. Giles has converted all 11 save chances this season.
