    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees closer Clay Holmes picked up his 22nd save of the season in Monday's 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks. Holmes entered the game to pitch the top of the ninth up by two and turned in a 1-2-3 inning with two strikeouts. While his role and performance have fluctuated at times throughout the season, Holmes has pitched well overall, converting all but three save opportunities with a 2.95 ERA and 10.18 K/9 rate. Hopefully, he will be able to help fantasy managers out a bit more in the final week of the season.

  • Clay Holmes Earns Save No. 18

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees reliever Clay Holmes completed Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Detroit Tigers, pitching a perfect ninth inning while striking out a batter to earn his 18th save of the campaign. The right-hander is amid another successful season, pitching to a 3.11 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 27.3% strikeout rate across 55 innings. Although he lost the closer role for a little while midseason, Holmes has converted nine saves since the beginning of July and is the only arm in the Yankees bullpen that fantasy managers should roster in standard save formats.

  • Clay Holmes Takes Fourth Loss Sunday

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees closer Clay Holmes took the loss Sunday against the Boston Red Sox, allowing a run on two hits and a walk in a 6-5 defeat. Holmes entered in the ninth inning of a tie game and let the game-winning run score on a double by Justin Turner. He now has losses in two of his last three appearances after a dominant three-month stretch where he only allowed three earned runs. He still holds a stellar 2.87 ERA and 1.19 WHIP, and should remain the go-to guy for the Yanks. Unfortunately for his fantasy managers, the Yankees have been brutal recently and may not see a ton of save opportunities down the stretch.

  • Clay Holmes Implodes, Takes Loss

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees closer Clay Holmes gave up five runs, four earned, in 1/3 inning on Sunday against the Miami Marlins and was saddled with the loss. The right-hander gave up three hits and a walk on the day as he fell to 4-3 on the season. Holmes had been pitching well for most of the season and this dreadful performance came in a non-save situation, but it won't matter to fantasy managers counting on him.

    New York Yankees closer Clay Holmes earned the save on Saturday when he worked a scoreless ninth inning while striking out one batter in a 3-1 win over the Houston Astros. Holmes worked the ninth inning with no issues in this one, punching out Jeremy Pena and getting Kyle Tucker to fly out before inducing a ground out from Alex Bregman to end the contest. It was Holmes' 16th save in 19 opportunities so far this season. He's been rock-solid in the back end of the Yankees bullpen this season, working a 2.06 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 53:16 K/BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings (46 appearances).

  • Clay Holmes Collects 15th Save

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees relief pitcher Clay Holmes held down the Houston Astros on Thursday to grab a save in a 4-3 win. Holmes allowed two singles, but got through the inning without allowing the Astros to plate the tying run. The 30-year-old has been stellar as the Yankees primary closer this season, pitching to a 2.11 ERA and 1.15 WHIP while notching 52 strikeouts in 42 IP. He is 15-for-18 is save opportunities and should continue to see his fair share for a Yankees team that will need to rely on Holmes if they are going to make a push for the playoffs. He should be rostered in all leagues.

  • Clay Holmes Grabs Save No. 14 On Wednesday

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees reliever Clay Holmes completed his 14th save of the season on Wednesday when his team defeated the New York Mets 3-1. He tossed one inning of work, allowing no baserunners and striking out one. Holmes has been fantastic this year, posting a 2.21 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 29.9% strikeout rate over 40 2/3 innings. Though he briefly lost the closer role in May to fellow righty Michael King, the 30-year-old has registered nine saves since the beginning of June, and fantasy managers should be rostering him in all formats.

  • Clay Holmes Earns 10th Save Of Season Monday

    Headshot for Clay Holmes

    New York Yankees relief pitcher Clay Holmes picked up his 10th save of the season in Monday's 6-3 win over the Orioles. Holmes came in to pitch the top of the ninth up by three and turned in a 1-2-3 outing with two strikeouts. The 30-year-old had a rough patch earlier in the season but seems to be slowly regaining control of the closer's role for the Yankees. He has now converted 10 of 12 save opportunities with a 2.36 ERA and 11.27 K/9 rate in 34 1/3 innings pitched. Hopefully, for fantasy managers, he can continue to trend in the right direction.
