Clay Holmes seals the deal: Yanks edge Rays 5-3

by Chris Schommer | Yankees Correspondent | Sat, Apr 20th 7:40am EDT

Clay Holmes secured his eighth save of the season, allowing two hits in a scoreless inning as the Yankees topped the Rays 5-3 on Friday.

Fantasy Impact:

Despite not recording a strikeout, Holmes effectively managed to keep the Rays from scoring, maintaining his pristine 0.00 ERA. His performance this season continues to be a mixed bag for fantasy managers; while his saves are valuable, his low strikeout rate (5.4 K/9) and relatively high WHIP (1.20) might raise concerns. Holmes's ability to avoid walks and earned runs is commendable, but his dependency on balls in play (.324 BABIP) suggests some vulnerability. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on his WHIP and BABIP trends, as they could indicate potential fluctuations in his performance while the reliever remains a reliable option to rack up saves moving forward.
