Josh Hader News
Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader allowed a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Friday, striking out two and earning a save over the Pirates. Hader allowed a single to Bryan Reynolds but still locked down his 15th save in as many chances. The 27-year-old southpaw lowered his season ERA to 0.73 and hasn't given up a run since May 16. Hader continues to be one of the most dominant closers in baseball, and his success should only continue as the season progresses.
Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader pitched a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to earn the save in Saturday's 7-5 win over Arizona. Hader needed 18 pitches to convert the save, but he was able to get the job done. He remains a perfect 14-for-14 in save chances with a 0.76 ERA, 0.76 WHIP, and 41:8 K: BB across 23 2/3 innings this season. Saturday was his eighth straight scoreless inning -- Hader has given up just three hits and a walk with 13 strikeouts in that span. He's on a roll and will remain amongst the top relief pitching options as the year progresses. The Brewers are playing very good baseball right now, and Hader should benefit from extra save chances.
Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader allowed one hit but struck out three in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against the Diamondbacks. Hader had a three-run lead and was never in danger of blowing the lead while earning his 13th save of the season. He's now allowed only two earned runs in 22 2/3 innings of work this season, and he has turned in seven consecutive scoreless appearances. He continues to be the most elite relief pitcher in all of baseball.
Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Josh Hader saw a decline in almost every category in the shortened 2020 season, and there's reason to believe his decline may continue through 2021. Hader still saved 13 games and struck out batters at a 39.7% clip, but his 3.79 ERA and 4.03 FIP were both concerning and career highs. His walk rate was the highest of his career and he got lucky with a .161 BABIP but still put up fairly pedestrian numbers, especially for what we've become accustomed to seeing from him. There are rumors that the Brewers may try to move on from Hader before the season begins, and any dynasty or keeper managers who roster Hader may want to do the same while his name recognition still boosts his trade value. Hader should still end up somewhere in the middle of the pack of fantasy closers at worst, but he may not sniff the top tier again.
