White Sox | David Robertson earns save

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 00:32:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox SP David Robertson netted his 13th save in 15 chances Tuesday, May 31, in a 6-4 win over the New York Mets. Chicago's bullpen was battered for 18 earned runs, 25 hits and 12 walks in the previous eight games.

Fantasy Tip: Every bullpen takes a hit once in a while, but Chicago was getting battered at every turn. Robertson turned his fortunes around against a solid Mets squad. The job is still Robertson's to lose, so keep him active in all formats.

White Sox | David Robertson earns save

Mon, 23 May 2016 20:07:13 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson pitched a scoreless ninth inning in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians Monday, May 23, to pick up his 12th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson has pitched very well this season and has allowed only two earned runs in 17 appearances. Robertson is one of the better closers in the league and should be starting in all leagues.

White Sox | David Robertson expected back Sunday

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:52:12 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson is expected to return to the team Sunday, May 1. RP Nate Jones will be the primary closer with Robertson unavailable, but RPs Matt Albers and Zach Duke are possibilities, too, according to manager Robin Ventura.

Fantasy Tip: Jones is worth a flier if you're desperate for saves, but otherwise, Jones, Albers and Duke are fantasy afterthoughts in the majority of leagues. It is nice to know that Jones is next in line, though, so saves vultures could potentially hang onto him. Robertson's job is one of the most secure in the majors, though.

White Sox | David Robertson out at least three days

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 11:09:38 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson will be out for at least three days while on the bereavement list. 2B Carlos Sanchez will be recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Nate Jones, who has a 0.84 ERA and nine K's in 10 2/3 innings this year, should take over the closing duties with Robertson out. Jones' short-term value sees a huge boost in the ninth-inning role, and those in daily transaction leagues in need of saves should add him immediately.

White Sox | David Robertson makes it 2-for-2

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 23:35:19 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson converted on his second save opportunity of the year Tuesday, April 5, versus the Oakland Athletics, registering a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson is out to a quick start in 2016. It shouldn't be a surprise either, as the former Yankee has always had dominant stuff, and these first two games could be an indication that he's on track towards becoming one of the best closers in baseball this season. Continue to lock him in lineups with confidence every time he gets the ball in the ninth.

White Sox | David Robertson blows save

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 17:09:22 -0700

Chicago White Sox CL David Robertson (6-4) blew a save for the seventh time in 36 opportunities Thursday, Sept. 17, against the Oakland Athletics. He allowed three runs on three hits over one inning, with one walk and one strikeout and was tagged with the loss.

Fantasy Tip: This was the second time in the four-game series against Oakland where Robertson squandered a lead. On Monday, Sept. 14, he entered the game with a four-run lead and allowed four runs, although two of them were unearned and the ChiSox later rallied to win in extra innings. He had pitched well recently prior to facing the A's, so he does not appear to be in danger of losing the closing job yet.

Yankees | David Robertson claimed by NYY

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 07:02:48 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson was claimed on revocable waivers by the New York Yankees. A trade must be made Monday, Aug. 31, but a deal seems unlikely.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson would see a bit of a hike in value if he enters a playoff push. He's still a high-end closer option regardless.

White Sox | David Robertson blows another save

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 20:20:30 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson blew the save against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, Aug. 12, but the White Sox later won the game in extra innings.

Fantasy Tip: The blown save wasn't all on Robertson, but it was a blown save regardless. He's allowed two earned runs in five innings so far in August, but Robertson is still a pretty safe saves option for fantasy owners, mainly because the White Sox have no viable replacements.

White Sox | David Robertson records two-inning win

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 16:42:23 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson struck out four batter over two innings to record his fifth win of the season during the White Sox's 6-5 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson has five wins, 22 saves and 63 strikeouts with a 2.66 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP over 44 innings pitched this season. He is a mid- to high-tier closer in all formats with excellent job security.

White Sox | David Robertson records messy save

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:27:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox RP David Robertson allowed two runs en route to his 15th save in 19 chances over the Detroit Tigers Thursday, June 25. He allowed three hits and walked two while striking out two in an inning of work to increase his ERA on the season to 2.84.

Fantasy Tip: It hasn't been pretty for Robertson as the closer of his new team in 2015, but the important thing to note is he has a long leash as the team's stopper, and there really isn't a clear alternative. If you're speculating in the deepest of leagues, Zach Putnam would probably be next in line if Robertson spirals out of control.
