  • Clay Holmes Records Seventh Save Wednesday

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees closer Clay Holmes notched his seventh save of the season in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Blue Jays, tying him for the league lead in all of baseball. Holmes allowed one hit but did not allow a run, a feat he's managed in all of his appearances so far this season, resulting in a perfect 0.00 ERA. The 31-year-old also has a 1.11 WHIP, although he isn't striking out many batters at just 15.4%. As long as he's locking down saves though, fantasy managers won't mind. After two straight 20+ save campaigns with New York, Holmes appears well on his way to 20+ again and is a top option at closer.

  • Clay Holmes Posts Sixth Save

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees right-hander Clay Holmes earned his sixth save in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cleveland Guardians. Holmes struck out two and gave up one hit in Saturday's victory. This was Holmes' first save since last Tuesday. Holmes remains unblemished in the 2024 season. The 31-year-old is (1-0) with a 1.14 WHIP but only has five strikeouts in seven innings. He continues to get the job done and has converted 6-of-7 save chances this season. Holmes should continue to get the same chances as the Yankee's primary closer.

  • Clay Holmes Notches Fifth Save Of Season Tuesday

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees closer Clay Holmes picked up his fifth save of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Marlins. Holmes came in to pitch the top of the ninth inning up by one and delivered a 1-2-3 outing with a strikeout. The 31-year-old has converted all but one of his save opportunities and has yet to allow an earned run or a walk in six innings pitched. He uncharacteristically only has three strikeouts in that time, but fantasy managers will take the overall results from the closer on one of baseball's hottest teams.

  • Clay Holmes Knocks Down Third Save

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees closer Clay Holmes collected his league-leading third save of the season in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Houston Astros. Holmes allowed a pair of hits but managed to escape unscathed to solidify the Yankees sweep. The 31-year-old has been a bit shaky in his appearances so far this season, allowing five hits with no strikeouts, but he has gotten the job done. He should have a pretty long leash on the closer's job as he was solid last year in the role.

  • Clay Holmes Records Second Save In 2024

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees right-hander Clay Holmes tossed a scoreless inning to earn the save in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Houston Astros. He entered the game in the ninth inning to protect a two-run lead. The 31-year-old needed 11 pitches to make quick work of the Astros en route to his second save of the season. He is 2-for-2 in save chances while posting a 1.50 WHIP over two scoreless innings in 2024. Holmes is the Yankee's primary closer after notching 20-plus save seasons in the previous two years. Fantasy managers should continue to start Holmes in all league formats, as the Yankees right-hander will rack up 20 or more saves for a third straight year.

  • Clay Holmes Still The Yankees' Closer

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone confirmed that right-handed reliever Clay Holmes remains the team's closer heading into the 2024 season. The Yankees used Holmes in a variety of high-leverage roles to open last season, including in some save chances, but he was mostly used in the ninth inning in the second half of the year. The 30-year-old, who is headed into his walk year, had 20 saves in 2022 and topped that mark by four in 2023. If he's the club's full-time closer from start to finish in 2024, Holmes has the opportunity to set a new career-high in saves for the third straight season. With a high strikeout rate, a ground-ball profile and not much competition for the closing role if he falters, Holmes should be considered a solid No. 2 closing option for fantasy managers.
