Miami Marlins RP A.J. Ramos picked up his 16th save of the season Tuesday, May 31, against the Pittsburgh Pirates, but it was anything but easy. Ramos loaded the bases in the ninth inning with nobody out, but was ultimately able to escape the jam and close it out. He ended up allowing one run on one hit and two walks, while striking out one.
Fantasy Tip: Ramos was not only fortunate to keep Miami in front, but also in keeping his own perfect record intact as well. In particular, Gregory Polanco was just a few feet from lacing a grand slam on a fly ball to deep center field. The 29-year-old has converted every one of his 16 save opportunities, though there have been times where he would get himself into trouble before escaping. Even so, he's clearly been an elite closer this season and is on pace for an All-Star berth.
