  • Pete Fairbanks Blows Save Sunday

    Headshot for Pete Fairbanks

    On Sunday, Tampa Bay Rays reliever Pete Fairbanks was tasked with securing the last six outs of the game. Unfortunately, he picked up a blown save instead as his team lost to Baltimore 5-4. In the eighth inning, he surrendered a solo home run to Orioles designated hitter Adley Rutschman. During the ninth frame, he allowed consecutive hits that tied the score at 3-3. Later in the inning, Cedric Mullins hit a game-winning sac fly to end the contest. Fairbanks has converted on 24 of 27 save opportunities in 2023 despite the blown save.

  • Pete Fairbanks Continues Dominance With 24th Save

    Headshot for Pete Fairbanks

    Tampa Bay Rays closer Pete Fairbanks was electric again on Thursday, striking out the side without allowing a baserunner to shut the door on the Baltimore Orioles. Fairbanks now has an astounding 17 strikeouts in 7 IP in September, along with a 1.35 ERA and six saves in seven attempts. The 29-year-old appears to have locked down the closer role for the Rays, which is saying something for a team that usually has three or four guys in a committee approach. He is a bit of a risk heading into next season because of the team he plays for, but Fairbanks will likely be drafted in the mid-rounds as a top-10 closer.

  • Pete Fairbanks Earns 23rd Save Of Season Monday

    Headshot for Pete Fairbanks

    Tampa Bay Rays closer Pete Fairbanks notched his 23rd save of the season in Monday's 7-4 win over the Twins. Fairbanks came in to pitch the ninth inning up by three. He got the first two outs on a flyout and strikeout, hit a batter, and ended the game with a lineout. The 29-year-old has played a surprisingly conventional role at the end of games this season when healthy, converting all but two save opportunities with a 2.23 ERA and a 12.94 K/9 rate. He should remain a higher-end fantasy option for the final few weeks of the fantasy season.

  • Pete Fairbanks Up To 20 Saves After Wednesday

    Headshot for Pete Fairbanks

    Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Pete Fairbanks picked up his 20th save of the season on Wednesday when he closed out the 3-1 victory against the Boston Red Sox. The only damage was a one-out single, and he struck out a pair in the ninth inning. Fairbanks has been exceptional again in 2023, posting a 2.41 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 34.0% strikeout rate over 37 1/3 innings. Despite pitching for the Rays, the 29-year-old should be viewed as the closer and fantasy managers can expect another handful of saves before the season's over.

  • Jason Adam Heading To The Injured List

    Headshot for Jason Adam

    Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Jason Adam (oblique) will be placed on the 15-day injured list with an oblique strain. He was unavailable for Saturday's game against the Guardians, and it's unclear when Adam suffered the oblique injury. The 32-year-old last pitched on Sunday. The right-hander owns a 2.67 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and a 69: 20 K: BB across 54 innings in 2023. Adam was Tampa Bay's top setup man to primary closer Pete Fairbanks and will miss the next two weeks of action. Andrew Kittredge is next in line to handle high-leverage situations for the Rays while Adam is sidelined. Kittredge is mainly an option in fantasy leagues that account for the category holds.
