Mike Mayers avoids arbitration with Angels

The Angels and RHP Mike Mayers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.2 million contract.

Fantasy Impact

Mayers does well in his first year of salary arbitration. He broke out this past summer, registering a 2.10 ERA, a 0.90 WHIP, and 43 strikeouts in 30 innings pitched. Expect him to serve in a setup role for Raisel Iglesias in 2021.

Mike Mayers works as set-up man, Felix Pena grabs save for Angels

Mike Mayers was called upon to pitch the 8th inning during Wednesday’s 5-2 win over the Padres. Mayers pitched one inning, allowing a hit and a walk with one strikeout and secured a hold in the process.

Fantasy Impact

It seemed over the past few games that Mayers had established himself as the new closer for the Angels, but instead it was Felix Pena who pitched the 9th inning tonight and earned his second save of the season. Mayers has been lights-out this season (1.52 ERA) but this bullpen continues to be unsettled for the purpose of chasing saves.

Mike Mayers grabs second consecutive save for Halos

Angels reliever Mike Mayers picked up his second consecutive save in as many days on Tuesday, pitching 1.2 scoreless innings in a 4-2 win over the Padres.

Fantasy Impact

Mayers was summoned to get the final two outs of the 8th inning after an RBI double by Manny Machado. Mayers escaped the jam and then returned for the 9th inning to eventually secure the save. Mayers has been terrific this season (1.57 ERA, 0.77 WHIP) and appears to be clearly established as the Angels new closer for the remainder of the season. He should be added by any teams needing help in the saves category.

Mike Mayers grabs first save of the season for Angels

Angels reliever Mike Mayers pitched two perfect innings on Monday and collected his first save of the season. Mayers retired all six batters he faced and struck out three.

Fantasy Impact

Mayers similarly was called upon to pitch two innings in his previous outing when he picked up a win on Saturday. Mayers has been absolutely dominant this season (1.67 ERA, 0.74 WHIP in 27 IP) and appears the favorite for saves in this bullpen the rest of the way.

Mike Mayers picks up a win in relief for Angels

Angels reliever Mike Mayers picked up his second win (2-0) of the season on Saturday night by pitching two scoreless innings of relief. Mayers did not allow a baserunner and struck out three.

Fantasy Impact

Mayers entered with the game tied 3-3 in the top of the eighth inning. After Mike Trout delivered the go-ahead run in the bottom of the frame, Mayers returned for the ninth inning and closed out the Rangers, securing his second win in the process. The former St. Louis Cardinal has arguably been the Angels best reliever this season with a 1.80 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP but has not yet recorded a save.
