Rafael Montero picks up win in relief Thursday

Astros RP Rafael Montero improved to 4-1 on the season. He tossed 1 1/3 innings of shutout ball as Houston beat Seattle, 4-2.

Fantasy Impact

The Astros reliever entered a tie game in the 7th with two outs and a runner on. He closed out the inning and Alex Bregman's RBI double turned him into a winner. Montero has been one of the best set up men in all of baseball this season, with seven saves, a 1.76 ERA and 0.98 WHIP.

Rafael Montero picks up save Tuesday

Astros reliever Rafael Montero picked up his 6th save Tuesday night, closing out the Royals in a 9-7 win.

Fantasy Impact

Montero did allow a run during his appearance, but struck out two to finish the game. Ryan Pressly was just getting a night of rest. However, Montero is among the most reliable and used set-up men in baseball and holds value even beyond leagues with holds as a category.

Rafael Montero earns save Friday vs. Yankees

Astros reliever Rafael Montero tossed a scoreless 9th inning to earn his 5th save of the year, walking two in the process.

Fantasy Impact

Montero was filling in for Ryan Pressly who likely just needed a day of rest. The 31-year-old righty has been utterly dominant out of Houston's pen this year, to the tune of a 1.82 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 30 K's in 29 2/3 innings. He has 11 holds on the year and if anything would happen to Pressly, Montero would surely become one of the most valuable closers in baseball.

Rafael Montero earns save after Ryan Pressly ejection Sunday

Rafael Montero picked up his fourth save of the season, after Astros closer Ryan Pressly was tossed from the game.

Fantasy Impact

Pressly entered the 9th in a non-save situation, with Houston leading 7-3. However, an unearned run would score. That suddenly made Montero's unexpected appearance a valuable one. He did his job, getting the final out on three pitches. Montero continues to be one of the most valuable set-up men in baseball.

Rafael Montero earns another win Tuesday

Astros reliever Rafael Montero continued to pitch lights out, tossing a scoreless inning and improving to 3-0.

Fantasy Impact

Montero came on in a tie game in the bottom of the seventh. He allowed a rare hit, but retired the side unscathed. Chas McCormick then turned him into a winner in the top of the 8th with a solo home run. Montero lowered his ERA to a minuscule 0.44 and is definitely one of the better set-up men in baseball.
