Cesar Valdez picks up third save

Cesar Valdez pitched the ninth inning of the season finale against the Blue Jays, not allowing a runner en route to this third save. The Orioles won, 7-5.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez is a very interesting player, throwing a changeup 80%+ of the time. He finishes 2020 with a 1.26 ERA, 0.70 WHIP, and 12 strikeouts in 14 and 1/3 innings. As fun as this story is, he likely won't be fantasy relevant as we enter 2021.

Cesar Valdez picks up second save

Cesar Valdez pitched the ninth inning of Sunday's game against the Rays, pitching a scoreless earning and earning the save. The Orioles won, 2-1.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez continues to impress with a unique arsenal, in which he throws a changeup 80%+ of the time. If you desperately need saves, he's one of the few options possibly left on the waiver wire.

Cesar Valdez takes loss Thursday

Cesar Valdez pitched the final inning in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Rays, giving up two runs on a walk, a double, and a sacrifice fly. The Orioles lost, 3-1, giving Valdez his first loss of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez appears to be the reliever the Orioles trust the most in high-leverage situations, and Valdez has earned it with a 1.46 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 12 and 1/3 innings. He has an outside chance at closing for the Orioles in 2021, and should be rostered in deeper leagues if you need saves.

Cesar Valdez picks up first save

Cesar Valdez pitched the final two innings of the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Yankees, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out three. The Orioles won, 6-3, giving Valdez his first save of the year.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez's save was very unique in a strange season, as the game was only seven innings and several higher-leverage relievers pitched in the first game of the doubleheader. While Valdez has yet to allow a run and has a 0.86 WHIP to go with nine strikeouts in seven innings, leave him on the waiver wire for now.

Cesar Valdez pitches two shutout innings Saturday

Cesar Valdez pitched the eighth and ninth innings of Saturday's exhibition against the Rays, striking out three and allowing a hit. The Orioles lost 1-0.

Fantasy Impact

Valdez is 34 and has most recently been pitching in the Mexican league. With a career 14% strikeout rate in various stints in the majors, it's a long shot for Valdez to see any time in the majors this year.
