David Bednar (oblique) resumes playing catch

Pirates RP David Bednar (oblique) has already resumed playing catch.

Fantasy Impact

Bednar was placed on the injured list Tuesday due to an oblique strain, but it looks like he'll be able to return when first eligible. The 26-year-old has had a breakout season in Pittsburgh's bullpen and was trending towards becoming the go-to closer before going down. Chris Stratton will handle saves for the time being.

David Bednar (oblique) placed on 10-day injured list

Pirates' reliever David Bednar has been placed on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday with a right oblique strain, retroactive to September 11th.

Fantasy Impact

Bednar has been an effective bullpen piece for the lowly Pirates, accruing a 3-1 record with a 2.18 ERA in 2021. Bednar hasn't thrown a pitch for the Pirates since he came off of the mound on September 7th, and it looks like he'll be on the shelf until at least the 21st of September.

David Bednar converts first save Saturday

David Bednar earned the save Saturday against the Cardinals, allowing one hit in one scoreless inning with one strikeout.

Bednar finally got the chance to convert a save and he did so with little trouble.
