David Robertson News
Free-agent reliever David Robertson has signed a one-year deal in the $11-12 million range with the reigning World Series champion Texas Rangers. The veteran signed a one-year deal with the Mets prior to the 2023 season and wound up tossing a tidy 2.05 ERA across 40 appearances with the club. However, Robertson was part of the Mets' trade-deadline binge as he was dealt to the Miami Marlins where he regressed to a 5.06 ERA across 22 outings spanning 21 1/3 innings of work. All told, the 38-year-old owns a 2.90 career ERA across 793 big-league outings, locking down 175 saves in the process. He should compete with Jose Leclerc for save opportunities at the back end of the Rangers' bullpen while Josh Sborz will also remain in the mix.
Miami Marlins relief pitcher David Robertson has lost the closer role, according to Craig Mish of Sports Grid. This comes in the wake of the veteran reliever blowing another save on Saturday against the Washington Nationals. Robertson has an 0-3 record, a 7.20 ERA, and has blown three saves since coming over to the Marlins right before the trade deadline. This really lowers his fantasy ceiling, particularly in leagues that only count saves. Tanner Scott looks to be the best bet for saves in Miami the rest of the way and is worth adding in 12-team mixed leagues. Scott owns a 2.59 ERA and 1.085 WHIP over 59 innings of relief this season.
Miami Marlins right-hander David Robertson was tasked with the ninth inning on Tuesday when his club defeated the San Diego Padres 3-0. He allowed no runs on one walk and no hits while striking out one to earn the save. Robertson now has 18 saves on the campaign to go along with a 2.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 26.2% strikeout rate across 53 innings. Since coming over to Miami near the trade deadline, the 38-year-old veteran has taken over the closer role and should remain in that spot for the rest of the season, making him a valuable option in all formats.
New York Mets reliever David Robertson's ADP has taken a serious leap following the unfortunate injury to teammate Edwin Diaz suffered at the World Baseball Classic. With Diaz reportedly set to miss most if not all of the 2023 season, Robertson has emerged as the favorite to close out games for the club this season. The 37-year-old sports a 545 ADP this spring, however, that number has ascended to 202 since March 16, the day after Diaz went down with a patellar tear in his right knee. The right-hander split the 2022 season between the Cubs and Pirates, working to a stout 2.40 ERA and 30.7% K% across 58 appearances, locking down 20 saves in the process. He'll see some competition from Brooks Raley for saves this season but should be the primary closer given his lengthy closing history that includes 157 career saves across 731 appearances. For context, Raley boasts just nine MLB saves in 153 career appearances and sports an ADP approaching 700 since March 16. Robertson has gone from the mid-70s to mid-20s in RotoBaller's relief pitcher rankings as the strongest source of Mets saves while providing plenty of strikeouts for fantasy managers in 2023.
