  • Previewing The 2023-24 Free Agent Class: Righty Relievers

    Headshot for Jacob Barnes

    MLBTR’s position by position preview of the upcoming free agent class concludes with a look at the right-handed relievers. While there’s no one at the top of this group who’ll rival Josh Hader among the southpaws, there are a number of impressive middle to late inning arms who’ll hit the market. Note: only players who…

  • David Robertson Loses Closer Gig For The Marlins

    Headshot for David Robertson

    Miami Marlins relief pitcher David Robertson has lost the closer role, according to Craig Mish of Sports Grid. This comes in the wake of the veteran reliever blowing another save on Saturday against the Washington Nationals. Robertson has an 0-3 record, a 7.20 ERA, and has blown three saves since coming over to the Marlins right before the trade deadline. This really lowers his fantasy ceiling, particularly in leagues that only count saves. Tanner Scott looks to be the best bet for saves in Miami the rest of the way and is worth adding in 12-team mixed leagues. Scott owns a 2.59 ERA and 1.085 WHIP over 59 innings of relief this season.

  • David Robertson Closes Out Tuesday's Win

    Headshot for David Robertson

    Miami Marlins right-hander David Robertson was tasked with the ninth inning on Tuesday when his club defeated the San Diego Padres 3-0. He allowed no runs on one walk and no hits while striking out one to earn the save. Robertson now has 18 saves on the campaign to go along with a 2.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 26.2% strikeout rate across 53 innings. Since coming over to Miami near the trade deadline, the 38-year-old veteran has taken over the closer role and should remain in that spot for the rest of the season, making him a valuable option in all formats.

  • David Robertson Picks Up Tuesday's Save

    Headshot for David Robertson

    Miami Marlins right-hander David Robertson earned the save on Tuesday, his 16th of the season and second as a member of his new club. The veteran hurler went one inning, walked one and struck out two to close out the 3-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Robertson owns a 2.63 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 28.0% strikeout rate across 48 innings this season, as he remains a trusted arm even at age 38. The former New York Met has taken over the closer role in Miami, which was previously held by A.J. Puk. Fantasy managers can expect Robertson to continue getting most ninth-inning opportunities.

  • David Robertson Blows First Save As A Marlin Tuesday

    Headshot for David Robertson

    Miami Marlins closer David Robertson blew his first save as a Marlin and fourth of the season in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Phillies. Robertson came in to pitch the top of the ninth inning up by one. He allowed a leadoff walk, got the first out on a strikeout, allowed a game-tying double, and allowed the go-ahead, two-run home run before getting the final two outs on flyouts. Despite this slip-up, Robertson has been a consistent fantasy option all season long for the Mets and Marlins, converting 15 of 19 save opportunities with a 2.54 ERA. Both of his appearances with the Marlins have been save opportunities, so it appears that he should continue to serve as a reliable closer for fantasy managers.

  • Marlins Acquire David Robertson In Trade

    Headshot for Adam Ottavino

    The Miami Marlins have traded for New York Mets relief pitcher David Robertson in exchange for infielder Marco Vargas, Miami's No. 18 prospect, and catcher Ronald Hernandez, their No. 21 prospect. It initially comes off as a rather underwhelming haul on New York's end for one of the top relievers available on the market, and the Marlins significantly augment their bullpen with the move. Robertson teams up with A.J. Puk to presumably to function as co-closers for the Fish depending on matchup. The overall fantasy value of both high-leverage arms may slightly diminish as they figure to split save opportunities. As for the Mets, their disappointing season seems to have forced the organization to become deadline sellers. Adam Ottavino is well worth an add off waiver wires as the club's new potential favorite for saves on the depth chart alongside Brooks Raley, who is also worth a look in deeper leagues after nabbing Thursday night's save.

  • David Robertson Earns Tuesday's Save

    Headshot for David Robertson

    New York Mets reliever David Robertson closed out Tuesday's 11-10 victory over the Chicago White Sox. He went one inning and allowed one run on two walks and a hit but did enough to earn the save, his 13th of the season. Robertson now owns an outstanding 2.13 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 28.1% strikeout rate over 42.1 innings. Despite the lower save total, fantasy managers should view the right-hander as the club's closer, and he should be rostered in every format.

  • David Robertson Earns One-Out Save Tuesday

    Headshot for David Robertson

    New York Mets relief pitcher David Robertson picked up his 12th save of the season in Tuesday's 8-5 win over the Diamondbacks. Robertson entered the game up by four with two outs and runners on first and second. He allowed a single to load the bases, walked a run in, but induced a groundout to end the game. The Mets have been a big disappointment this season but Robertson has pitched well overall, converting all but three save opportunities with a 1.93 ERA and 10.61 K/9 rate. He is certainly worth a roster spot in most fantasy leagues, but he may not yield as much fantasy value as hoped for if the Mets continue to struggle.
