Blue Jays' Derek Law: Notches five-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law pitched 1.2 innings Saturday, allowing just two walks and striking out two to earn the save in a 7-5 win over the Mariners.

It's Law's fourth save of the year, all of which have come in August. Over 11 appearances, the right-hander has pitched to a 2.08 ERA this month. For the year, Law has a 4.96 ERA and 1.55 WHIP with 56 strikeouts in 49 innings. It's expected Law will return to a set-up role when Ken Giles returns from the paternity list.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Blows first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law (0-2) took the loss Thursday against the Dodgers, giving up three runs on three hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning to blow his first save of the season.

With Ken Giles on the paternity list, Law was back in the saddle as Toronto's closer but he couldn't get the job done, ruining a combined shutout bid and handing the Dodgers another walkoff win. The loss snapped the right-hander's 14-appearance scoreless streak, but on the year Law still has a 5.13 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 54:28 K:BB through 47.1 innings.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Records third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law allowed one hit and one walk but struck out two in a four-out save against the Yankees on Saturday.

The 28-year-old took the mound with two outs and nobody on during the eighth, and while he allowed a single to the first batter, he struck out the next hitter and faced the minimum in the ninth. Law is 0-1 with three saves, a 4.95 ERA, a 1.53 WHIP and 51 strikeouts in 43.2 innings this season.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Records second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law struck out one through 1.1 scoreless and hitless innings to record his second save in a 2-0 win over the Rays on Monday.

Law recorded the last out of the eighth inning and quickly set down the Rays in the ninth inning to nail down his second save. Although his overall numbers are not impressive, Law hasn't allowed a run in his last eight appearances. The 28-year-old has a 5.36 ERA with 48 strikeouts through 37 games this season.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Gets emergency save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law picked up his first save of the season in Friday's win over the Orioles, walking two batters and striking out one in two scoreless frames. He got the nod because Justin Shafer got sick mid-game and was unavailable to pitch, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.CA reports.

Law has been used as an opener and a middle-innings reliever, and his 5.54 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 47:23 K:BB hardly scream out as him having a closer's skill set, but with Ken Giles (elbow) sidelined it's any port in a storm for the Jays in the ninth.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Opening Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law will serve as the opener Thursday against the Red Sox, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Law will look to get three or four outs before turning things over to lefty Thomas Pannone, with Marcus Stroman pushed back due to a pectoral issue. In his three "starts" so far this season, Law has allowed four runs on three hits and three walks while striking out two over 3.1 innings.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Working as opener Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law will be deployed as the Blue Jays' opening pitcher for Saturday's game against the Red Sox, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

Law hasn't exceeded 40 pitches or two innings in any of his appearances at the major-league or Triple-A level in 2019, so those probably represent his workload limitations while he works as an opener for the third time this season. Sam Gaviglio is slated to follow Law and will presumably cover the bulk of the innings out of the bullpen.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Slated to open Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law is starting Monday against the Angels.

Law will serve as the opener in Monday's series opener before giving way to Edwin Jackson, who is slated to serve as the primary pitcher. The right-hander opened for Jackson last week against the Orioles, allowing a hit and a walk in a scoreless inning.

June 13, 2019 12:56 PM
Blue Jays' Derek Law: Opening Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law will start Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Law has zero career starts at the big-league level and hasn't pitched more than two innings in a game this season, so he isn't likely to go deep in Wednesday's contest. It's not clear if something happened to scheduled starter Edwin Jackson or if the veteran right-hander will be available out of the bullpen.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Rare clean inning Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless seventh inning during Friday's loss to the Padres.

The right-hander hasn't had too many successful outings since joining the Toronto bullpen. Law has been charged with runs in four of his eight appearances this year, leaving him with a 4.91 ERA and 13:5 K:BB over 11 innings. Expect him to continue working in low-leverage situations unless he's able to put together a strong run.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Added to roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law had his contract purchased from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

Law will take the roster spot of Alen Hanson, who was designated for assignment Friday. Prior to earning a promotion, Law compiled a 1.69 ERA and 0.94 WHIP with a 17:3 K:BB in 10.2 innings with the Bisons. The right-hander owns a career 3.83 ERA across parts of three big-league seasons (105.2 innings).

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Dealt to Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants traded Law to the Blue Jays on Wednesday along with infielder Alen Hanson and pitcher Juan De Paula in exchange for outfielder Kevin Pillar.

Law posted an impressive 2.13 ERA and 0.96 WHIP over 61 relief appearances as a rookie with the Giants in 2016, but he's fallen on hard times ever since. After back-to-back rough seasons, Law lost his spot on the Giants' 40-man roster in February, which indicated that he wasn't a major part of the team's future plans. He'll look for a fresh start in a new organization but will probably need to find success with Triple-A Buffalo before receiving the call to Toronto.

Giants' Derek Law: Assigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law was reassigned to minor-league camp Thursday.

Law's chances of breaking camp with the Giants likely ended when he was designated for assignment in early February. It will take at least a few injuries in the bullpen for him to get another shot in the big leagues.

Giants' Derek Law: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law was outrighted to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday and will attend Giants' major-league spring training, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Law was designated for assignment last week but will remain with the Giants after going unclaimed on waivers. The 28-year-old no longer has a place on the 40-man roster, but will still have an opportunity in spring training. Law spent most of 2018 at Sacramento but did have 13.1 major-league innings with a 7.43 ERA and 1.80 WHIP.

Giants' Derek Law: Off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law was designated for assignment by the Giants on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The Giants claimed John Andreoli off waivers and needed to clear space on the 40-man roster, prompting the move. Law spent the bulk of 2018 at Triple-A Sacramento, but did see major-league action in seven games and had a 7.43 ERA and 1.80 WHIP across 13.1 innings.

Giants' Derek Law: Sent right back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday.

Law was up for just a single day this time around, throwing a pair of scoreless innings with a strikeout and two walks Monday against the Mets. Chris Stratton was recalled from Double-A Richmond in a corresponding move.

August 20, 2018 03:00 PM
Giants' Derek Law: Brought back to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Law has thrown 11.1 innings for the Giants this season, struggling to an 8.74 ERA. He'll take the bullpen role previously occupied by Ray Black, who was sent to Sacramento in a corresponding move.

August 10, 2018 06:28 PM
Giants' Derek Law: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law was sent down to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Law will head back to Sacramento after allowing three earned runs on three hits and one walk across a four-out relief appearance against Pittsburgh on Thursday. On the year, he's posted a rough 8.74 ERA across 11.1 innings of work. The Giants will make a corresponding move prior to Friday's contest.

August 4, 2018 07:16 PM
Giants' Derek Law: Back up with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.

In four appearances for the Giants this season, Law has allowed nine runs (seven earned) in nine innings. He has a solid 3.74 ERA in 33.2 innings at the Triple-A level.

May 31, 2018 03:56 PM
Giants' Derek Law: Activated and optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants activated Law (ankle) from the 10-day disabled list Wednesday and optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento, MLB.com reports.

Law had already made a one-inning rehab appearance with Sacramento on Tuesday, so he'll simply stick with the affiliate after the Giants didn't have a need for his services out of the bullpen now that he's healthy again. The right-hander was sidelined for a little over two weeks with the ankle injury.
