Corey Knebel News
Philadelphia Phillies closer Corey Knebel managed to pick up his 10th save of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Brewers. Knebel entered to pitch the bottom of the ninth with a one-run lead. He walked the leadoff hitter, got the first two outs on fly outs, allowed back-to-back walks to load the bases, and got the final out on a strikeout to end the game. Knebel has been seeing consistent save opportunities this season and does have a respectable 3.38 ERA, but he has also blown three saves and has a poor 5.25 BB/9 rate. Knebel is still a mid-tier closer in roto leagues given his defined role, but the walks could come back to hurt him if left unchecked.
Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Corey Knebel was able to bounce back nicely versus the San Diego Padres on Wednesday. The right-hander suffered his first blown save of the season versus the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. Although, Knebel needed only four pitches to take care of the Padres here. Knebel notched his eighth save of the season and should be ready to go for Thursday's contest.
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Corey Knebel struck out two over 1 1/3 innings to earn the save during Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Seattle Mariners. In the eighth inning, he entered Wednesday's contest to protect a two-run lead. With the game-tying run on base, the Phillies right-hander struck out Jesse Winker to end the eighth inning. He returned to the mound in the ninth frame and threw a perfect inning to notch his sixth save of the season. The 30-year-old is the team's primary closer and is 6-for-7 in save opportunities. Knebel has been one of fantasy baseball's most reliable relievers in 2022, posting a 2.70 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 14 strikeouts over 13 1/3 innings.
Relief pitcher Corey Knebel signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Phillies in December. He appears to be locked into the Phillies' closer role to begin the year. Knebel spent the 2021 season with the Los Angeles Dodgers. When he was healthy, he pitched well in a setup role in front of closer Kenley Jansen. He appeared in 27 games and had a 2.45 ERA, a 0.97 WHIP and a 28.7% strikeout rate. A midseason lat strain cost him about three months, but he closed the year healthy. The Phillies finished the 2021 season with an 82-80 record and all signs point to another season above-.500 for the team. Knebel currently has an ADP just inside the top-200. He's being drafted as about the 15th closer off the board. He's a great value at his current ADP as he has a strong chance of reaching 30 saves this year if he can stay healthy and effective. The closest thing he has to competition for saves right now is Jose Alvarado, who struggled in a closing role for the Phillies last year.
