RP - MIA
David Robertson has been removed from the closer role for the Marlins.
Robertson has had a rough time in Miami after being acquired by the Marlins in late July. He has three blown saves and a 7.20 ERA in 10 appearances. Tanner Scott is the most likely candidate to get save chances going forward.
With a solid 2.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 9.5 K/9 on the season, Robertson continues to be a reliable option for fantasy managers in need of saves and strikeouts.
However, his five blown saves and 4.09 FIP indicate some potential volatility in his performance going forward.
Robertson needed just 18 pitches to retire the side, allowing no hits and issuing one walk while striking out two batters.
With this performance, Robertson now has a season line of 44 games played, a 2.63 ERA, and a 1.02 WHIP. He has recorded 16 saves, four blown saves, and seven holds so far this year, showcasing his ability to contribute in high-leverage situations.
David Robertson continued his impressive season, pitching a perfect inning of relief against the Tigers on Sunday.
In his 41st appearance of the year, Robertson retired all three batters he faced, striking out one and earning his 16th save of the season. With a 2.00 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP, Robertson has been a reliable option out of the bullpen for the Marlins, boasting a 9.8 K/9 and a 3.77 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
The Mets have traded David Robertson to the Marlins.
The Marlins currently have a record of 55-48 and sit a half game out of the final Wild Card spot. Robertson currently has a 2.05 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 14 saves in 40 games this season. Robertson will provide the Marlins with a much needed veteran option in the backend of their bullpen.
