RP - HOU
Expert NoteView More Notes
Pressly was his usual excellent self in the bullpen last year, pitching to a 2.25 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP with a 32.4% strikeout rate, his fourth straight season with at least a 31% mark. His fantasy value was held in check by his oddly-low save total of 26, but that was hardly his fault. The Astros as a team had only 34 saves total, which was tied with the Blue Jays for the lowest mark by a .500 team or better. Houston averaged 46.5 saves over the team's previous two full seasons, so expect them to approach that mark again and for Pressly's save total to jump by at least five or more. If you can grab a discount based on his low number last year, do so.

Ryan Pressly struggles but earns save Saturday
Astros closer Ryan Pressly picked up his 32nd save of the season Saturday in a 2-1 win over the Rays. It did not come easy though as he allowed a run on a hit and two walks.
Pressly certainly made it interesting Saturday night. After striking out the leadoff batter, he walked the next two. Yandy Diaz hit an RBI single with two outs. With the tying run in scoring position, the Astros closer got Harold Ramirez to line out to end the game. Pressly has been one of the most consistent closers in baseball this year and earned mid-round draft status next season.
