RP - LAA
Angels' RP Mike Mayers tossed one scoreless inning en route to his second save of the year in an Angels' 6-5 win over the Red Sox.
Despite walking two batters, Mayers struck out the side in the ninth to seal a Halos win as well as his second save of the 2021 campaign. Mayers has been a solid relief option for the Angels, but his lack of consistency keeps him outside of fantasy consideration for the time being.
Angels reliever Mike Mayers returned from the injured list on Wednesday.
Mayers has a 2.51 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 29% strikeout rate, and 9.7% walk rate in 14.1 innings. He recorded four holds and one save in two opportunities in 2021. Put him on the watch list in case Raisel Iglesias struggles.
The Angels placed reliever Mike Mayers on the injured list with undisclosed reasons but should return in a few days.
As the Angels setup man, Mayers pitched well with a 2.51 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 29% strikeout rate, and 9.7% walk rate in 14.1 innings. Mayers recorded four holds and one save in two opportunities. If Raisel Iglesias falters, Mayers should be a top speculative closer target.
Angels' reliever Mike Mayers gave up one hit in his single inning of work on Monday, closing out the game for the Halos and earning his first save of the season.
Mayers entered the game in the ninth after a late Angels' comeback to take a 7-5 lead over the Astros. Although Mayers gave up a solo shot to Kyle Tucker, he managed to preserve the Angels' lead and get his first save of the year. Raisel Iglesias is the presumed Angels' closer, and with a crowded Angels bullpen, Mayers provides little fantasy value for the time being.
Angels reliever Mike Mayers left Saturday's spring training game early after being struck in the knee by a ball, but the team hasn't "heard anything negative from the trainers," according to manager Joe Maddon.
Mayers appears to be fine, and the team is just being cautious. He is in line for some late-inning work for Los Angeles this season, but he is unlikely to see many save opportunities unless something happens to Raisel Iglesias.
