Adam Ottavino takes the loss on Thursday afternoon

Adam Ottavino was saddled with the loss by giving up a run in the bottom of the ninth on Thursday against the Twins.

Fantasy Impact

Ottavino has now allowed runs in three of his five appearances so far. Matt Barnes is clearly the locked-in closer for Boston moving forward.

Adam Ottavino struggles in first appearance of 2021

Adam Ottavino struggled in Sunday's loss to Baltimore, allowing one run on two hits and two walks in an inning of work.

Fantasy Impact

The game was over by the time Ottavino came in, which means that the Red Sox were just having him get some work in. The results weren't pretty, however. Matt Barnes looked a lot better in his inning of work. We would consider Barnes the favorite for saves as of now.

Adam Ottavino traded to Boston Red Sox

Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports the Red Sox are trading for Yankees RHP Adam Ottavino.

Fantasy Impact

This is the first Red Sox-Yankees trade since Stephen Drew for Kelly Johnson back in 2014. The Yankees also included prospect right-hander Frank German, which essentially makes this a salary dump for New York. Ottavino's surface level stats give some cause for concern, notably a 5.89 ERA in 24 appearances. However, the majority of that can be explained away by a six-run outing on September 7th where Ottavino didn't record an out. The 35-year-old still posted 12.3 K/9 and a 3.52 FIP. It's unclear what role he'll assume in Boston's bullpen.

Adam Ottavino gives up six runs in loss on Monday

Adam Ottavino gave up six runs without recording an out Monday in the loss to the Blue Jays by a 12-7 score.

Fantasy Impact

Ottavino saw his ERA balloon from 3.55 to 7.82 on Monday. The veteran reliever has been working in a setup role this season and has two holds and has yet to record a save. Ottavino can be left on the waiver wire by fantasy owners.

Adam Ottavino picks up the loss on Thursday

Adam Ottavino (2-2) took the loss and a blown save in Thursday's game against Tampa Bay, allowing three runs on two hits and a walk over 2/3 innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact

Ottavino is now 2-2 on the season with a 4.00 ERA, 1.22 WIP, 10 strikeouts over nine innings with two holds. The veteran reliever is being used in a setup role and is worth owning in leagues that count the holds category.
