Matt Strahm blows save in seventh inning vs. Seattle

Red Sox reliever Matt Strahm gave up a run-scoring double to the first batter he faced during the seventh inning of Saturday's game against the Mariners. The run tied the contest at five apiece, meaning Strahm was hit with the blown save even though he did not give up an earned run. The southpaw went on to retire the next batter he faced, bringing the seventh inning to a close. Boston ultimately fell to Seattle by a score of 7-6.

Fantasy Impact

Strahm is 2-2 with a 4.00 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and .243 OBA through 23 games (18 innings) this season. He also owns 10.50 K/9, 2.00 BB/9, five holds, three saves, and two blown saves. The 30-year-old has been a solid option during high-leverage situations but should be left on fantasy waivers in most leagues.

Matt Strahm placed on COVID-19 IL on Monday

The Red Sox placed Matt Strahm on the COVID-19 IL on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Strahm is one of a handful of relievers who have factored in to the closer mix for Boston, but he'll at least miss Monday's contest against the Orioles. His ratios, combined with his potential for saves, make him worth rostering in AL-only leagues if you have room, but he's unlikely to run away with the closer's role. Therefore, fantasy managers should not consider him a must-hold option in any format.
