Amir Garrett ineffective again, takes loss Monday

Amir Garrett pitched 1/3 inning, allowing one run on one hit and one walk while striking out one and taking the loss as Kansas City fell 6-2 to the Giants in San Francisco on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Garrett has not had an ideal return from the IL, allowing four runs in one inning of work across two appearances since being activated. Garrett was saddled with the loss Monday and falls to 1-1 on the season and carries a 6.75 ERA in 18 appearances in 2022. The southpaw Garrett, once the rust has been knocked off, will give Kansas City a true lefty specialist they had sorely lacked with him sidelined. Fantasy managers who have stashed Garrett to this point should be patient and give him some time before cutting bait.

Amir Garrett traded to Royals

The Reds announce they have traded reliever Amir Garrett to the Royals in exchange for starter Mike Minor.

Fantasy Impact

Garrett has spent each of the last five seasons with the Reds, but it wasn't until last year that he saw reps as a closer. Through 63 games in 2021, the southpaw tallied seven saves. However, he also went 0-4 with a 6.04 ERA and proved to be an unreliable option late in games. Perhaps he'll find better luck in the AL Central, but for the time being, fantasy managers should temper expectations.

Amir Garrett earns seventh save Tuesday

Amir Garrett picked up the save Tuesday against the Mets, walking one and striking out two in one inning.

Fantasy Impact

Garrett was given a one-run lead, and he was able to retire the side and convert the save. It had been looking like Heath Hembree was the closer of note in Cincinnati, but perhaps Garrett has re-earned the trust of the manager. He's struggled to a 6.75 ERA in 30.2 innings this season.

Amir Garrett earns sixth save Sunday

Amir Garrett picked up the save Sunday against the Cubs, walking one and allowing one hit in 0.2 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Garrett was very lucky to escape with the save on Sunday; he walked the first batter, then allowed a single before inducing a game-ending double play. Though he has six saves on the season, Heath Hembree converted the two prior saves, and may be the Reds' preferred option at this point.

Amir Garrett picks up fifth save Saturday

Amir Garrett struck out one and allowed one hit in a scoreless inning Saturday against Atlanta, earning the save.

Fantasy Impact

Garrett worked around a hit to retire the side in 17 pitches. The Reds' bullpen situation is as murky as it gets; though with Antone and Sims on the IL, Garrett may be in line for more opportunities in the ninth inning.
