Ryan Helsley seals the deal in shutout win

Ryan Helsley locked down his 11th save of the season in a pristine inning against the White Sox on Friday.

Fantasy Impact:

He needed just eight pitches to retire the side, allowing no hits, walks, or runs, though he didn't record a strikeout. This performance underscores Helsley's role as a reliable closer for the Cardinals, maintaining an impressive 1.59 ERA and 0.88 WHIP through 17 appearances. His consistent ability to suppress hits and walks, combined with a solid strikeout rate, makes him a top-tier fantasy option. While the lack of strikeouts in this outing might raise an eyebrow, his season-long numbers suggest it's likely an anomaly rather than a trend. Fantasy managers should continue to deploy Helsley with confidence whenever save opportunities arise.
