Nick Anderson struck out one in a scoreless ninth to earn his sixth save of the season on Monday against the Mets.
Anderson slammed the door on a 2-1 victory. The 30-year-old has been downright phenomenal this year, allowing just one run over 15 innings pitched. He has a 25/2 K/BB ratio during that time to go along with six saves and six holds. He's a very valuable asset in leagues that count both saves and holds.
Nick Anderson picked up his fifth save of the season in the Rays' win over the Nationals on Tuesday, striking out the only two batters he faced en route to a 6-1 win.
Anderson still hasn't allowed a run this year. The 30-year-old has now pitched 33 1/3 innings since joining the Rays last summer, a span in which he has a 1.35 ERA with a 60/4 K/BB ratio. That is quite good. Anderson might not see every save chances for Tampa Bay the rest of the way but he remains worth owning everywhere.
Nick Anderson earned the save in his first appearance following an IL stint, tossing a scoreless inning to slam the door on a 5-4 win over the Marlins on Friday.
Anderson missed a couple of weeks due to forearm inflammation. The save was his fourth of the year as the 30-year-old reliever has yet to give up a run this season. Tampa Bay will continue to mix and match down the stretch but Anderson is the best bet to own for fantasy purposes.
Nick Anderson was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.
Anderson had "very encouraging" bullpen sessions this week and was activated from the injured list on Friday. He will resume his role as the Rays' closer. Anderson owns a 0.00 ERA, 0.54 WHIP and 15:1 K:BB across nine 1/3 innings in 2020.
Nick Anderson (forearm) is scheduled to make a 20-pitch appearance in a simulated game on Wednesday.
Anderson has been on the IL since August 20th with forearm inflammation. If Wednesday's session goes well then the reliever could return to Tampa's bullpen before a weekend series with the Marlins.
