  • Joel Payamps Snags First Save On Sunday

    Headshot for Joel Payamps

    Milwaukee Brewers reliever Joel Payamps picked up the save on Sunday during a 4-1 win over the New York Mets. Payamps retired the side in order and struck out one. Abner Uribe recorded saves in each of the Brewers previous two games. While Uribe was unlikely to pitch three days in a row, the Brewers may have a potential closer by committee situation on their hands. Uribe is the preferred pickup at this point in time, but this bullpen is one to monitor until Devin Williams returns.

  • Abner Uribe Earns Second Save In Two Days

    Headshot for Trevor Megill

    Abner Uribe earned his second save in two days for the Milwaukee Brewers. Uribe again got the ninth inning Saturday afternoon against the New York Mets and responded with the save despite surrendering a home run to slugger Pete Alonso . He allowed one run on one hit while striking out two in Saturday's 7-6 win over the Mets. With the back injury shelving top closer Devin Williams (back) for at least the next three months, the closer job was thought to be a competition among Trevor Megill , Joel Payamps , and Uribe. On Friday, Megill got the heart of the Met's lineup, leaving the ninth inning to Uribe. Megill got the seventh inning again on Saturday and struck out three while surrendering two hits. In the coming weeks, this will be one to watch as all three pitchers are candidates for saves. At this time, Uribe has the upper hand and has handled the job well through the first three games of the 2024 season. Uribe has electric stuff and has elite fastball/sinker velocity to go with a nasty slider as well. Uribe is worth an add in leagues that value saves as long as he has the role.

  • Joel Payamps, Abner Uribe Could Be Candidates For Saves In Milwaukee

    Headshot for Joel Payamps

    With Milwaukee Brewers closer Devin Williams (back) expected to miss three months due to stress fractures in his back, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Curt Hogg writes that relievers Joel Payamps and Abner Uribe are among the most obvious early candidates to see save chances for the Brewers until Williams is able to return. There isn't anyone with significant closing experience in the bullpen for Milwaukee, but Payamps, Uribe, Hoby Milner, Elvis Peguero, Bryse Wilson and Trevor Megill are all among the key returners from a bullpen that was second in ERA in 2023. Payamps, 29, had a 2.55 ERA with three saves and 28 holds in 70 2/3 innings last year and should be considered a top speculatory closer for fantasy managers late in drafts. Uribe, 23, lights up the radar gun and can whiff batters with the best of them, but his elevated walk rate is a cause for concern.

  • Joel Payamps Struggling But Worth Monitoring

    Headshot for Joel Payamps

    Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Joel Payamps is off to a rough start this spring, giving up six runs (five earned) and two home runs in just 2 2/3 innings of work, but he remains next in line for save opportunities in the team's bullpen. With All-Star closer Devin Williams (back) heading for a second opinion from a spine specialist on his sore back this week, Payamps is a name to watch late in fantasy drafts while Williams' status is unclear. The 29-year-old Dominican right-hander has been a solid high-leverage arm throughout his career, and he most recently delivered a strong 2.55 ERA (3.48 FIP), 1.04 WHIP, and 77:17 K:BB through 70 2/3 frames for the Brew Crew in 2023. After collecting 27 holds a year ago, Payamps may needed for ninth-inning duties if Williams ends up needing to miss time to begin the campaign and is worth rostering in deep fantasy leagues until the latter is cleared to return.
