Rays RHP Matt Wisler (finger) has been reinstated from the injured list.
Wisler has been out since mid August due to inflammation in his finger. He'll be a valuable piece out of the bullpen for Tampa Bay down the stretch.
Matt Wisler saved Sunday's 3-2 victory over Boston, allowing two hits with one strikeout in the ninth inning.
Wisler picked up his first save of the season and converted Tampa Bay's first save following former closer Diego Castillo's trade to Seattle. The team could go with a committee but fantasy owners in deeper leagues may want to make a speculative add with Wisler.
Matt Wisler was handed the loss on Tuesday when he allowed a walk and a two-run home run over 1/3 inning in the Giants 3-1 loss to the Padres.
Wisler entered a 1-1 ball game in the bottom of the seventh inning and recorded just one out before falling apart. He got Jurickson Profar to ground out for the first out of the inning but then walked Ha-Seong Kim before Victor Caratini crushed a two-run homer to right field. Wisler was replaced by Wandy Peralta but the Giants would never recover. The 28-year-old has gotten off to a horrendous start in the bullpen this season with a 32.40 ERA and 4.20 WHIP in just 1 2/3 innings of work. Yikes.
The Giants have signed RHP Matt Wisler to a one-year, $1.15 million deal.
The 28-year-old was non-tendered by the Twins last week. He appeared in 18 games last year, which included four starts. Wisler posted a 1.07 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP. He won't begin the 2021 campaign with any fantasy value, though.
Minnesota Twins right-hander Matt Wisler threw two scoreless innings as the team's opener in a 3-2 win over the Tigers in Game 2 of a Friday doubleheader. Wisler struck out three and walked one.
Wisler was excellent in the start. The veteran reliever has a 0-1 record, 0.96 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, one save, two holds, and 24 strikeouts in 18 2/3 innings of work.
