Edwin Diaz strikes out the side in recording save on Sunday

Edwin Diaz struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning on Sunday against the Braves to record his 26th save of the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Just your standard 64% CSW rate and 86% whiff rate for Diaz, who mowed through the Braves lineup like he was taking a stroll in the park. He now has a K/9 rate of 18.07 or more than two batters per inning, and is simply untouchable at the moment. Diaz's entrances have turned into events themselves, and with enormous confidence, a dominant arsenal, and a strong team behind him, he's likely going to finish the year with one of the best fantasy seasons for a closer ever.
