James McArthur Seals the Deal in Royals' Victory

James McArthur logged a clean inning to notch a save as the Royals topped the Cardinals 8-5 on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

He allowed just one hit and zero runs, maintaining his composure to secure his 18th save of the season. Despite a rocky 4.10 ERA and 1.31 WHIP this year, McArthur's ability to close games remains intact, though his modest strikeout rate (7.2 K/9) limits his upside in fantasy formats that heavily reward strikeouts. His role as the Royals' closer should keep him relevant in most leagues, but fantasy managers might want to keep an eye on potential alternatives if his high BABIP (.330) and FIP (4.11) suggest further struggles.
