Yankees | David Robertson claimed by NYY

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 07:02:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson was claimed on revocable waivers by the New York Yankees. A trade must be made Monday, Aug. 31, but a deal seems unlikely.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson would see a bit of a hike in value if he enters a playoff push. He's still a high-end closer option regardless.

White Sox | David Robertson blows another save

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 20:20:30 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson blew the save against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, Aug. 12, but the White Sox later won the game in extra innings.

Fantasy Tip: The blown save wasn't all on Robertson, but it was a blown save regardless. He's allowed two earned runs in five innings so far in August, but Robertson is still a pretty safe saves option for fantasy owners, mainly because the White Sox have no viable replacements.

White Sox | David Robertson records messy save

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:27:25 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson bounced back from his fourth blown save the previous night. His job appears safe for now, and with 41 strikeouts in 29 2/3 innings, he remains a strong fantasy closer.

Fantasy Tip: Despite blowing four saves in 17 chances, Robertson still owns a solid 2.51 ERA to go along with a 0.87 WHIP and 40 strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings. His role as closer should be secure for now.

White Sox | David Robertson blows another

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:21:35 -0700

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.

White Sox | David Robertson throws Thursday

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 12:40:59 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson has been dealing with some soreness this spring but felt good during his bullpen session Thursday, March 26. Manager Robin Ventura does not appear to be concerned about the soreness.

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.
