  • Ryan Helsley Looks Sharp On Friday

    St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Ryan Helsley put together a masterful performance against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday. The right-hander struck out three batters over two innings of work in the victory. He earned his 12th save of the season and is showing no signs of slowing down. Helsley now holds an incredible 0.76 ERA, 0.65 WHIP, and 70 strikeouts across 47 2/3 innings this season. Fantasy managers should continue to believe in him down the stretch of the season.

  • Ryan Helsley Reaches 10 Saves

    St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Ryan Helsley saved his 10th game of the year Friday night, shutting down the New York Yankees to secure a 4-3 victory. He allowed no hits and one walk and did not strike out a batter. Helsley is having a charmed season, recording a 0.61 ERA and 0.63 WHIP with 66 strikeouts in 44 1/3 innings. He has allowed an earned run in only two of his 36 appearances all year. Fantasy managers who picked him up off the waiver wire early this season have been handsomely rewarded.

  • Ryan Helsley Blows Save Chance On Wednesday

    St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Ryan Helsley was charged with his third blown save and first loss of the year on Wednesday. He entered Wednesday's game against the Miami Marlins in the ninth inning with the Cardinals leading 3-2. He went on to give up a game-winning, two-run home run to Marlins outfielder Avisail Garcia. His final line: one inning, two hits, one walk, two earned runs and three strikeouts. He is now 6-for-9 on save chances this year, which isn't a great conversion rate, but he owns a stellar 0.88 ERA and 0.65 WHIP. He's been the team's primary closer lately and should remain in that role, but Giovanny Gallegos is still in the picture as well. Gallegos is 9-for-13 in save opportunities with his most recent blown save coming this past Saturday.

  • Ryan Helsley Notches Sixth Save Of Season Tuesday

    St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Ryan Helsley picked up his sixth save of the season in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Marlins. Helsley came in to close things out with a two-run lead and delivered a 1-2-3 inning with three strikeouts. The 27-year-old has clearly been the team's best reliever this season, compiling a 3-0 record with two blown saves, five holds, a 12.74 K/9 rate, and a minuscule 0.30 ERA. Despite this, he has been on the back half of a closing timeshare with Giovanny Gallegos, who pitched the eighth inning in this game. This makes Helsley slightly less attractive in roto leagues, but he certainly does hold fantasy value in all leagues at this time.

  • Ryan Helsley Notches Fifth Save Of Season Monday

    St. Louis Cardinals relief pitcher Ryan Helsley picked up his fifth save of the season in Monday's 7-5 win over the Pirates. Helsley entered the game to pitch the ninth inning with a two-run lead and delivered a 1-2-3 inning with a strikeout. Bullpen mate Giovanny Gallegos has seen the most save opportunities this season with 11, but he pitched in the seventh inning of this game. Helsley has seen seven save opportunities of his own and has pitched very well, compiling a 0.37 ERA with 33 strikeouts and six walks over 24 1/3 innings pitched. He is currently rostered in 65% of leagues and should be rostered in at least all roto leagues at this time.

  • Ryan Helsley Records Third Save Of Season Friday

    St. Louis Cardinals reliever Ryan Helsley was the arm that manager Oliver Marmol turned to Friday to close out the 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. He entered the game with one out in the ninth and pitched a clean 0.2 innings with a strikeout. Helsley has yet to allow an earned run and has posted a 0.31 WHIP with 27 strikeouts over 16.1 innings of work. It was also his third save of the year, all coming this month. It's hard to tell who the preferred ninth-inning man is, as Giovanny Gallegos has eight saves but was likely available Friday after just 11 pitches the night before. Fantasy managers should monitor the situation moving forward.

  • Ryan Helsley Notches Second Save On Saturday

    St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Ryan Helsley struck out a batter over a perfect inning to earn the save during Saturday's 5-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Cardinal's primary closer Giovanny Gallegos was unavailable, and St. Louis turned to Helsley for Saturday's save opportunity. The 27-year-old entered the ninth inning to protect a one-run lead and retired the side to earn his second save of the year. He has been lights out this season, posting a 0.27 WHIP and a 25:2 K: BB across 14 2/3 scoreless innings. Helsley should be rostered in all league formats as he continues to produce for fantasy managers while being in a high-leverage role for the Cardinals.
