Rafael Montero earns save Friday vs. Yankees

Astros reliever Rafael Montero tossed a scoreless 9th inning to earn his 5th save of the year, walking two in the process.

Fantasy Impact:

Montero was filling in for Ryan Pressly who likely just needed a day of rest. The 31-year-old righty has been utterly dominant out of Houston's pen this year, to the tune of a 1.82 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 30 K's in 29 2/3 innings. He has 11 holds on the year and if anything would happen to Pressly, Montero would surely become one of the most valuable closers in baseball.
