Tony Watson picks up the win on Sunday

by Jon Mathisen | Giants Correspondent | Mon, Aug 31st 11:42am EDT

Tony Watson relieved starter Johnny Cueto in the top of the seventh inning and recorded one out, which was enough to secure the win as the pitcher of record in the Giants 4-1 win over the D-backs on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

Watson entered the game with two outs and a runner on first and only threw four pitches before Jake Lamb was picked off to end the inning. The Giants retook the lead in the following frame, which gave the lefty his first win of the year. Watson owns a stellar 0.82 ERA, 0.727 WHIP, and a 9:2 K/BB ratio over 11 innings of relief. He retains some value in holds leagues but simply isn't used enough to be employed in standard mixed leagues, despite the sterling numbers.
