Will Smith earns 34th save in win over Braves

Will Smith struck out two in a scoreless ninth to preserve the 4-1 Giants' win over the Braves on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Smith allowed just a harmless single to pick up his 34th save of the year. The lefty closer dealt with some back inflammation the other week but is good to go for the final week of the regular season.

Will Smith dealing with back inflammation

Will Smith was unavailable for Tuesday's save chance versus the Pirates due to back inflammation.

Fantasy Impact

Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area writes that "it doesn't sound like he's close to returning", which is not what fantasy owners want to hear. Shaun Anderson recorded the save last night but it's unclear how the Giants will handle the ninth inning moving forward. The best we can do right now is hope for an update on Smith sometime today or tomorrow.

Will Smith picks up 32nd save Friday night

Will Smith allowed a solo homer but held on to earn the save and protect the 5-4 win on Friday versus the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Smith has been a little shaky recently, allowing six earned runs over his last seven appearances. Still, he'll remain the Giants' locked in closer the rest of the way. Smith has converted 32-of-36 save chances this year.

Will Smith earns 30th save in Oakland

Will Smith picked up his 30th save of the season on Sunday in Oakland, throwing a scoreless ninth as the Giants won 5-4.

Fantasy Impact

Smith worked around a two-out double to earn this one as he lowered his ERA to 2.70 on the season. The impending free agent should remain a top-10 fantasy closer the rest of the way.

Will Smith allows two runs, earns the win Friday night

Will Smith picked up the win on Friday in Arizona despite allowing two runs on three hits over 1 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Smith was also charged with his fourth blown save of the year. The 30-year-old couldn't protect a two-run lead in the 10th, but the Giants eventually won in 11 innings. He'll remain the team's locked-in closer from here on out.
