Oh worked around a pair of hits in a scoreless inning of work to earn his third save of the season Sunday against the Brewers.
Colorado had the chance to win the game in regulation, but Adam Ottavino blew a save opportunity to send the game into extras. Oh closed things out in the 11th, recording his first save in a Rockies uniform. Wade Davis and Ottavino are still ahead of Oh in the pecking order for saves, but his outstanding work as a setup man and situational closer should prove valuable to the Rockies as they battle for playoff seeding in the second half.
Oh likely won't mind the move, as he'll get to join a team much more involved in a playoff race, though it's certainly a downgrade in his fantasy value. The veteran had been in the mix for saves in Toronto with Roberto Osuna suspended but is now firmly in a setup role in Colorado. Plus, he now has a nightmare of a home park. There's little reason to go near a non-closing reliever in Coors unless they can boast an off-the-charts strikeout rate (see Adam Ottavino), which Oh cannot.
Oh (illness) will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday, Mike Wilner of BlueJaysTalk report.
Oh wasn't able to pitch during Tuesday's game to due flu-like symptoms. Across 40 appearances this year, he's posted a 3.20 ERA and 1.12 WHIP.
Oh (flu-like symptoms) was not available in Tuesday's game against the Mets, the Associated Press reports.
Tyler Clippard came in to get one out and record his sixth save in 10 tries, so there isn't much clarity as to whether Oh will get saves once healthy. He should be considered day-to-day, and Clippard should be considered the slight favorite to get saves until Aug. 5, when Roberto Osuna (suspension) reclaims the job.
Oh pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the win Saturday against the Tigers. He struck out one and allowed one hit.
Oh entered with the game tied and kept it that way, leaving him as the pitcher of record when Justin Smoak launched a walkoff homer. From a usage perspective, it's notable that Oh was called upon in a tie game with Roberto Osuna suspended and Ryan Tepera (elbow) on the disabled list, confirming the notion that he's still behind Tyler Clippard on the closer depth chart.
