  • Clay Holmes To See Most Of Save Opportunities

    New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone said that relief pitcher Clay Holmes is expected to close out the majority of the games for the team in 2023. "I would expect [Holmes] to close a lot of games for us. Probably most games, and hopefully a lot of games. But I do see a number of guys getting saves," Boone said. Holmes has Boone's trust despite a tough stretch in 2022 when he dealt with back and shoulder injuries. But there will also be some games where Holmes is called on earlier than the ninth inning in high-leverage situations. The 29-year-old right-hander led the team with 20 saves in 2022, and although he might not get all the saves in a traditional closer's role, he's still the best bet for saves in the Bronx after taking hold of the closer's job last year.

  • Yankees, Clay Holmes Avoid Arbitration

    The New York Yankees agreed to a one-year, $3.3 million deal with relief pitcher Clay Holmes on Friday to avoid salary arbitration. Holmes will make an extra $25,000 each for 25, 30, 35 and 40 games finished in 2023. In his first full season with the Yankees, the 29-year-old right-hander picked up a career-high 20 saves -- he didn't have a single save coming into the season -- and also finished with a career-best 2.54 ERA (2.84 FIP), 1.02 WHIP and 65 strikeouts in 63 2/3 relief innings. He dealt with a strained right shoulder late last year, but he should be fine for spring training and is expected to open the 2023 season as the team's primary closer. Holmes isn't elite by any means and will have to continue pitching well to keep the gig, but he should be considered a top-20 fantasy reliever.
