Edwin Diaz secures 16th save Friday

Edwin Diaz threw a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts to lock down his 16th save against the Cubs on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

This was a nice bounce-back outing for Diaz, who struggled to convert his previous save. In his last six appearances before today, Diaz had blown two saves and allowed eight earned runs. Fantasy owners should rest easy on the fact that Diaz is one of the best closers in baseball, and is in no danger of losing the closer's job for the Mets.

Edwin Diaz earns 15th save Saturday

Mets closer Edwin Diaz allowed one run on three hits but managed to convert his 15th save of the season in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Diaz has been struggling of late, with two blown saves and eight earned runs allowed over his last six appearances, but he remains one of the better closers in fantasy and is not in any danger of losing the closer job in New York.

Edwin Diaz blows another save Thursday

Mets closer Edwin Diaz allowed two earned runs on two hits and one walk while striking out one over one inning to blow the save in Thursday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The game was suspended in the ninth inning at 4-4 and is scheduled to be completed on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Diaz now has a 3.38 ERA on the season, which is solid for a starting pitcher but not what teams and fantasy owners are looking for in a closer. He does have 14 saves 44 strikeouts over 26 2/3 innings, however, and remains one of the more valuable fantasy relievers.

Edwin Diaz earns 14th save Saturday

Mets closer Edwin Diaz allowed one hit and no walks while striking out two en route to earning his 14th save of the season in Saturday's win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Diaz has now bounced back with three straight scoreless outings after allowing four earned runs in an appearance against the Dodgers. He now has a 2.81 ERA and 43 strikeouts over 25 2/3 innings and should continue to be one of the more valuable closers in fantasy.

Edwin Diaz implodes against the Dodgers

Edwin Diaz allowed four runs on five hits and a walk over just 1/3 of an inning against the Dodgers on Wednesday night. He was credited with a loss and a blown save.

Fantasy Impact

Diaz entered with a three-run lead but immediately ran into trouble, allowing back-to-back homers by Joc Pederson and Max Muncy. He could not put hitters away, and looked to be fatigued, as he has dealt with a heavy workload recently. Diaz's numbers now look pedestrian, but they were pristine prior to this hiccup, so fantasy owners should do their best to just write off this blowup. He remains an elite closing option.
