Juan Minaya recorded his first save of the season on Saturday, helping secure a 2-0 victory over Baltimore.
It was Minaya's first save of 2018 and his 10th of his MLB career. More importantly, he's rattled off six straight scoreless outings, and hasn't allowed a run in 8 1/3 innings in September.
Juan Minaya fired a scoreless pair off innings and recorded his second win of the season.
Minaya has struck out 11 batters over seven scoreless innings thus far in September. It's allowed his ERA to drop from 4.08 to 3.48. He's only had a couple of save opportunities all season, but if he keeps pitching like this, he may find himself getting a few more.
Juan Minaya struck out two over 1 1/3 innings on Sunday, holding the Angels to one hit.
In five innings this month, Minaya has yet to yield a run. He has nine strikeouts and a walk over that span. His ERA is higher than fantasy owners would like, but he has been providing solid ratios out of the bullpen lately.
Juan Minaya pitched an effective two innings on Monday against the Twins.
He faced three batters in the seventh and struck out all three. He then fanned Eddie Rosario to start the eighth, retired Jorge Polanco, then whiffed Miguel Sano. Those five Ks in one appearance set a new career-high for Minaya. He's had a tough season, but outings like this show his potential. He could be a guy to keep an eye on for future years.
Juan Minaya pitched a scoreless ninth inning on Friday against the Rangers to protect a 4-3 lead and earn his first save of the season. He allowed one walk and struck out one.
Minaya was thought to be a ninth inning option for the White Sox, and sure enough, he received and converted with ease the save opportunity on Friday. It's a good bet that Minaya will get the remaining save opportunities for the White Sox for the rest of the season, so long as he pitches competently.
