Rangers' Joe Barlow: Collects 11th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow earned the save against the Angels on Thursday after firing a perfect inning with one strikeout.

Barlow entered the ninth inning with Texas holding onto a one-run lead and retired all three batters in just nine pitches, including a strikeout of Max Stassi. The save was Barlow's eighth straight -- and his 11th of a successful season -- during which he's pitched to the tune of a 1.55 ERA and 0.83 WHIP.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Registers save No. 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow allowed one hit but pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 10th save of the year in a 5-2 win over the Angels on Tuesday.

Barlow pitched around an infield single to protect a three-run lead and convert the save. The 26-year-old had one blowup outing against the Rockies at the very beginning of the month but has otherwise converted seven saves and owns a 0.93 ERA and 0.83 WHIP in his 11 other appearances in September. He's been fantastic since taking over the closer role and could still add another save or two to his resume over the final five games of the year.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Converts save No. 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow recorded the final out of Sunday's 7-4 win over Baltimore via strikeout to earn the save.

Pedro Severino's two-run home run off Kolby Allard made it a three-run game, and Barlow entered the contest after Jahmai Jones drew a walk. Barlow was able to strike out Ryan McKenna to end the threat. The right-hander is up to nine saves this year, all earned within his last 15 appearances. He's pitched to a 1.67 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and 26:12 K:BB across 27 innings overall while taking on the closer role in Texas in his first big-league season.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Locks down eighth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow walked one and struck out one in one inning, earning the save in Friday's 8-5 win over Baltimore.

Texas trailed for most of the game, but a five-run rally for the lead in the ninth inning made Barlow's services necessary. The right-hander has yielded six runs (three earned) across nine innings in September, but those have all come in just two of his 10 appearances. He's posted a tiny 1.69 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 25:12 K:BB through 26.2 innings while adding eight saves and three holds in 28 appearances.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Secures another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow pitched a perfect inning against the White Sox on Saturday, striking out two to earn the save.

The right-hander threw 10 of 14 pitches for strikes and fanned two of the three batters he faced. Barlow has been dominant of late, holding opponents to no runs and just three hits over his past seven outings. Since Sept. 8 he has collected four saves in four chances, strengthening his claim for the team's closer role beyond the remainder of the current campaign.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Notches save No. 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow fired a perfect ninth inning to earn the save in the win over the Athletics on Sunday.

Barlow entered the ninth inning with a one-run lead. He retired the side in order to earn his sixth save of the season. He has three saves in his last three appearances dating back to Sept. 8. The rookie has allowed just four earned runs all season, good for a 1.59 ERA and 0.88 WHIP over 22.2 innings.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Picks up fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow allowed a hit and nothing more over an inning of work, picking up the save in Saturday's 8-6 win over the Athletics.

Barlow navigated around a Seth Brown single to obtain his fifth save of the season. Through 23 appearances this year, the rookie right-hander has allowed earned runs in only three outings. He figures to be one of the Rangers' top closing options to finish off the season.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Snags one-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow retired the only batter he faced to earn the save in Wednesday's 8-5 win over Arizona.

Demarcus Evans made things interesting in a non-save situation, which allowed Barlow to enter with a three-run lead to nab his fourth save of the year. The 25-year-old has emerged as one of Texas' top closing options with a 1.74 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 21:10 K:BB through 20.2 innings. He's logged three holds, a blown save and an 0-2 record in addition to his four saves in 22 appearances.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Blows first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow (0-2) took the loss Wednesday as the Rangers fell 9-5 to the Rockies, coughing up five runs (two earned) on one hit and two walks in two-thirds of an inning to blow his first save of the season.

The right-hander was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the ninth, and while three Texas errors behind him didn't help matters, Barlow's back-to-back walks with one out set the stage for Colorado's rally. One bad outing likely won't jeopardize his spot as the primary closing option for the Rangers, and the 25-year-old rookie still sports a 1.96 ERA and 20:9 K:BB through 18.1 innings.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Picks up save in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow secured his third save of the season in a 4-3 win over the Rockies on Monday. He needed just seven pitches to get through three batters, completing a perfect inning.

Monday marked Barlow's first appearance since Aug. 19 after he spent some time on the 10-day injured list for a finger blister. The 25-year-old was thrown right back into the closer's role upon his return and was able to shut down the Rockies for his third save in as many attempts. Barlow now owns a 1.02 ERA, 0.74 WHIP and 20:7 K:BB over 17.2 innings at the major-league level.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow (finger) was activated off the 10-day injured list Monday.

Barlow wound up missing just the minimum 10 days while recovering from a blister. He recorded saves in two of his last three appearances before hitting the injured list, so it's possible he could return to the ninth inning going forward.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Out with blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow landed on the 10-day injured list due to a blister Friday.

Barlow appeared to be emerging as the closer for Texas, recording the team's last two saves, but he won't see any more time in the ninth or any other inning for at least 10 days. Nick Snyder's contract was selected to take his place in the bullpen.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Converts another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow struck out a batter and worked around a hit and a walk in a scoreless inning to notch his second save of the season in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Athletics.

The Rangers' closing situation has been a difficult one to pin down since Ian Kennedy was dealt to Philadelphia on July 30, but Barlow appears to have at least temporarily seized hold of the ninth-inning gig. After converting a relatively stress-free save Friday, Barlow got the job done again two days later, turning in another scoreless ninth. Though he'll need to turn in a few more clean outings to build up job security, Barlow is worthy of a speculative pickup for fantasy managers that are desperate to make up ground in the saves category.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Notches first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow walked one batter in a scoreless ninth inning in Friday's win over Oakland. He struck out one and earned the save.

Barlow worked around a one-out walk to secure the 8-6 win and pick up his first big-league save. The 25-year-old righty has been tremendous since debuting in June, allowing just one run through 13.2 innings (0.66 ERA) with an 18:6 K:BB. Barlow tallied seven saves with a 2.57 ERA this season with Triple-A Round Rock this season and he could force his way into more ninth-inning looks down the stretch.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Sets club record
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow pitched a perfect inning and collected a hold Tuesday, striking out two Angels and setting a new club record for consecutive strikeouts in the process.

When Barlow struck out Jack Mayfield leading off the eighth inning, it was his eighth straight whiff spread across five relief appearances, breaking the club record of seven (which had been shared by three pitchers, including Nolan Ryan). Barlow has also collected a hold in three straight outings, and with a 0.93 ERA and 0.62 WHIP across the first 9.2 innings of his big-league career, he's already looking like one of the top arms in the Rangers' bullpen. Spencer Patton is first in line for saves right now, but if he stumbles, Barlow could be next in line.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Makes MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow struck out two over a scoreless eighth inning in Thursday's 5-1 loss to Oakland.

Barlow had his contract selected earlier this week and made his big-league debut Thursday. He operated as a closer for Triple-A Round Rock but is expected to pitch in low-leverage situations for now.

Rangers' Joe Barlow: Primed for MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barlow had his contract selected by the Rangers on Wednesday.

The right-hander has been at Triple-A Round Rock this season and has pitched well with a 2.57 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 29:8 K:BB across 21 innings. Barlow also went 7-for-7 in save chances, though he should fill a low-leverage role in his first taste of big-league action.
