Kirby Yates Secures Save, Rangers Top D-backs 4-2

Kirby Yates allowed one hit and one walk while striking out two over an inning to notch a save in the Rangers' 4-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

This outing continues a strong season for Yates, who now boasts a 0.90 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP through 20 appearances. His ability to maintain a high strikeout rate (11.3 K/9) coupled with a superb 2.26 FIP suggests that his success is no fluke. With eight saves and no blown saves to date, Yates remains a reliable option for fantasy managers.

Kirby Yates Seals a Shaky Save in Slugfest

Kirby Yates managed to secure the save despite allowing a run in the Rangers' 12-11 victory over the Athletics.

Fantasy Impact

He threw 19 pitches, surrendered two hits, and struck out one batter. While Yates did notch another save, his performance in this high-scoring affair was less than stellar, slightly tarnishing his otherwise impressive season stats. Despite this, his ERA remains low at 0.56, and his WHIP slightly increased to 0.69, which still positions him among the elite relievers in fantasy leagues. Fantasy managers should continue to deploy Yates with confidence, but they might want to keep an eye on any trend where his control wavers in these high-pressure situations.

Kirby Yates seals the deal in tight Rangers victory

Kirby Yates delivered a flawless performance, striking out two and securing a save in the Rangers' narrow 2-1 win over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Yates's impeccable inning featured no hits, walks, or runs, maintaining his season-long streak of dominance. With a pristine 0.00 ERA and a minuscule 0.36 WHIP through 10 appearances, Yates continues to be a fantasy goldmine. His consistent ability to shut down opponents, evidenced by a stellar 10.6 K/9 and a 6.50 strikeout-to-walk ratio, makes him an elite option in all fantasy formats. Given his role as a reliable closer, Yates should remain a top-tier fantasy asset, especially in leagues that value saves and strikeouts.
