Padres | Brandon Maurer earns second save

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 23:58:23 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Brandon Maurer pitched a perfect ninth inning, striking out one, against the San Francisco Giants on Friday, July 15, to earn a save.

Fantasy Tip: There haven't been many chances since Fernando Rodney was traded, but Maurer looked far more comfortable than he did in his previous save chance. Despite unimpressive overall numbers, Maurer last's 10 outings have covered 9 2/3 innings, during which he has allowed one run on six hits while striking out 12 and walking zero. He's the Padres closer for now, and as such he has some appeal for anyone seeking to supplement their position in the saves department.

Padres | Brandon Maurer logs first save

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 23:34:09 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Brandon Maurer allowed one run on two hits in one inning against the New York Yankees on Friday, July 1, to record the first save of his career.

Fantasy Tip: San Diego entered the ninth inning with a five-run lead, and Maurer entered with two on, nobody out and one run in. He threw some gas on the fire initially, and even let the tying run reach third, but he got Brett Gardner to ground out to end it. Still, that's not the kind of performance that'll engender much confidence in someone that carries a career ERA north of 5.00. Maurer makes sense for anyone desperate for saves, but his long-term future as closer is cloudy to say the least.
