Giles finishes 2020 with one save along with a 9.82 ERA, 2.18 WHIP and six strikeouts over three 2/3 innings. The right-hander will be a free agent next offseason.

Ken Giles gives up a home run in return from IL

Ken Giles allowed a solo homer and two hits while striking out two in one inning of work in his return from the injured list Friday against the Mets.

Fantasy Impact

Giles (forearm) was activated from the 45-day injured list Friday and will probably need a couple of appearances to get back to normal. The 29-year-old reliever is the closer for the Blue Jays and should be owned in all leagues that count saves as a category.
