Richard Bleier saves game on Friday for the Orioles

Richard Bleier allowed one hit and struck out a batter across 1 2/3 innings during his second save of the season in a 9-6 victory against the Giants on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Bleier had struggled when initially coming off the IL back in mid-May but has pitched better of late. The 32-year-old reliever could see more save chances as the team has moved Mychal Givens out of the closer role. Fantasy owners desperate for saves should keep an eye on Bleier.

Richard Bleier gets placed on the 10-day injured list

Orioles placed LHP Richard Bleier on the 10-day injured list with shoulder tendinitis.

Fantasy Impact

Bleier complained about his shoulder after his appearance against the A's on Tuesday. Bleier is almost 10 months removed from serious lat surgery and the Orioles will be cautious with the reliever and his shoulder and could be on the IL for more that the required 10 days.

Richard Bleier picks up a save in win on Monday

Richard Bleier gave up a run on two hits while striking out one in an inning of relief to record his first save of the season which is the first of his career in Monday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Bleier has done a good job coming out of the pen in what is now his fourth season with a career 1.97 ERA in 119 innings. He is currently in a closer by committee and is more of an option for fantasy leagues that count both holds and saves.

Rich Bleier expected to throw this week

Richard Bleier is expected to throw live batting practice this week, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Fantasy Impact

Bleier did not pitch this past Friday but is expected to throw a pen session later this week. He is on a slower schedule from the rest of the Orioles pitchers as he continues to recover from shoulder surgery this past June. He is still expected to be ready by Opening Day and will need to pitch in Spring Training games in order to meet that target date.

Richard Bleier does not throw on Friday

Richard Bleier did not throw Friday when the rest of his bullpen group did, Joe Trezza of reports.

Fantasy Impact

Bleier continues to recover from shoulder surgery he underwent this past June. Reports earlier this offseason indicated he would be ready by Opening Day. The fact that he has pitched so far this Spring Training is a good sign that he will be ready by then. He posted a 1.93 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP across 32 2/3 innings pitched in 2018.
