Carlos Estevez Seals the Deal Against Pirates

by Jesse Garcia | Angels Correspondent | Thu, May 9th 7:39am EDT

Carlos Estevez delivered a flawless performance, tossing a hitless inning with two strikeouts to notch a save in the Angels' narrow 5-4 victory over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact:

This outing was a breath of fresh air for Estevez, whose season has been marred by a bloated 5.06 ERA despite a solid 0.84 WHIP. His ability to strike out batters remains evident with an 11.0 K/9 rate, and today's performance could hint at a turning point. Fantasy managers should remain cautious but optimistic; while his ERA is alarming, his underlying metrics like FIP and WHIP suggest better days ahead. Estevez's role as a closer appears secure for now, making him a viable option for saves in fantasy leagues, albeit with a watchful eye on his run prevention.
