Edwin Diaz strikes out the side in recording save on Sunday

Edwin Diaz struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning on Sunday against the Braves to record his 26th save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Just your standard 64% CSW rate and 86% whiff rate for Diaz, who mowed through the Braves lineup like he was taking a stroll in the park. He now has a K/9 rate of 18.07 or more than two batters per inning, and is simply untouchable at the moment. Diaz's entrances have turned into events themselves, and with enormous confidence, a dominant arsenal, and a strong team behind him, he's likely going to finish the year with one of the best fantasy seasons for a closer ever.

Edwin Diaz saves first game of Saturday's doubleheader against Braves

Edwin Diaz recorded two outs in the ninth inning of the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Braves to earn his 25th save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

It didn't look like Diaz would be needed with the Mets holding an 8-2 lead heading into the ninth, but Yoan Lopez ran into trouble, necessitating Diaz's appearance. He induced a ground ball and a strikeout to lock down the game, needing just seven pitches total. He's a dominant force right now and may be available for the second game of the doubleheader, if necessary. If not, he'll be ready to go on Sunday.

Edwin Diaz locks down two-inning save on Thursday against Braves

Edwin Diaz allowed one hit and struck out three over two scoreless innings on Thursday against the Braves to earn his 24th save.

Fantasy Impact

Diaz had never recorded a six-out save before Thursday, but did so with relative ease. As usual, he leaned into his slider heavily, throwing it 61% of the time, though he induced swings on just eight of his 17 sliders. With 28 pitches and a doubleheader scheduled for Saturday, Diaz will likely be unavailable on Friday, so expect Seth Lugo to factor in for any save opportunity.

Edwin Diaz converts four-out save on Tuesday against Yankees

Edwin Diaz allowed one hit over a scoreless 1 1/3 innings on Tuesday against the Yankees to earn his 22nd save of the year.

Fantasy Impact

Diaz rarely pitches more than one inning, but was needed in a hard-fought game. He allowed an infield single and had an odd error where he simply lost control of the ball on a throw, but then struck out both Anthony Rizzo and Gleyber Torres to finish off the game. His level of dominance cannot be overstated, and his 17.93 K/9 rate is almost comical in its brilliance. There's every reason to expect him to end the year as the top closer in the game.

Edwin Diaz earns 21st save on Sunday night

Edwin Diaz pitched a perfect ninth inning with a strikeout on Sunday against the Padres to earn his 21st save.

Fantasy Impact

The Mets led the Padres 8-2 heading into the ninth inning, but Joely Rodriguez allowed each of the four batters he faced to reach, leading to Diaz needing to put out the fire. He recorded three outs with ease, and continues to utterly dominate opposing batters as soon as he steps on the rubber. Diaz now has a 1.60 ERA, a 0.94 WHIP, and 77 strikeouts in 39 1/3 innings. He's the best closer in the game at the moment.
