Amir Garrett earns second save Friday

Amir Garrett walked two over a scoreless inning to pick up his second save Friday against Arizona.

Fantasy Impact

Garrett came in during the 10th inning and navigated around two walks (one intentional) to secure his second save. The outing was definitely an improvement on his last two appearances, during which he allowed five runs in two innings.

Amir Garrett converts rocky save Monday

Amir Garrett earned his first save of the season Monday against the Pirates, despite allowing a solo home run and a walk. He struck out one.

Fantasy Impact

This was Garrett's first appearance of the season, and he should be given a pass after putting in little work in the Spring. He may not be available in Tuesday's game, as he needed 25 pitches to retire the side Monday.

Amir Garrett update: Reds not naming a closer out of the gate's Mark Sheldon reports the Reds won't be naming a closer prior to Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact

Both Amir Garrett and Lucas Sims are considered the favorites to close, but manager David Bell doesn't want to be locked into either one. This is common for baseball in 2021, but we still project Garrett to get the majority of ninth inning chances. The lefty has been lights out this spring, striking out all nine batters that he has faced.

Amir Garrett (forearm) throwing live BP on Wednesday

Cincinnati Reds LHP Amir Garrett, who hasn't pitched this spring due to left forearm soreness, is throwing a live BP on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Garrett has been playing catch on flat ground but has yet to to appear in a Cactus League game. If all goes well with the BP session on Wednesday then he could begin throwing in games as early as this weekend. He should be ready for Opening Day, barring any setbacks. He was the favorite to take the Reds' closer job heading into camp and if he can get back on track he should still win the gig. The southpaw put up a stellar 2.45 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, and 26:7 K/BB ratio over 18 1/3 innings last season.

Amir Garrett dealing with forearm soreness

Reds LHP Amir Garrett is currently dealing with forearm soreness.

Fantasy Impact

Garrett has yet to appear in a Cactus League game as a result of the issue. The good news is he's still throwing on flat ground and is scheduled for a bullpen on Thursday. It'll be important to monitor the news surrounding that bullpen session tomorrow, however.
