Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson allowed two runs en route to his 15th save in 19 chances over the Detroit Tigers Thursday, June 25. He allowed three hits and walked two while striking out two in an inning of work to increase his ERA on the season to 2.84.
Fantasy Tip: It hasn't been pretty for Robertson as the closer of his new team in 2015, but the important thing to note is he has a long leash as the team's stopper, and there really isn't a clear alternative. If you're speculating in the deepest of leagues, Zach Putnam would probably be next in line if Robertson spirals out of control.

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson blew his second save in consecutive days against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, May 27, but this time recorded the win. He once again allowed a home run to Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson and gave up two hits and an earned run while walking one and striking out two in two innings. His ERA is now up to 2.61 on the season.
Fantasy Tip: Despite back-to-back blown saves, Robertson remains firmly entrenched as the club's closer. However, if things continue to snowball for Robertson, Zach Putnam may be worth a look for saves speculators. Expect Robertson to be rested tomorrow after pitching two-plus innings the last two days.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see if what Robertson is dealing with his more serious than originally thought. If healthy, Robertson is likely one of the top 10 fantasy closers in the league and should be selected in the middle rounds of drafts.
