Josh Hader News
Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader had a rough month of July. He kicked off the month with his first blown save of the year and went on to allow six earned runs across 5.2 innings in the month. However, ever since the calendar flipped to August, Hader has been dominant. Since the start of August, Hader has pitched 13.1 scoreless innings, allowing just four total hits while recording 24 strikeouts and converting all 10 of his save opportunities. He is tied for sixth in the majors with 31 saves on the year and he has a stellar 1.39 ERA and 0.85 WHIP.
Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader allowed one hit in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Monday against the Giants. Hader allowed a leadoff double to Kris Bryant but retired the next three batters to finish the game. He has not allowed a run in his last 10 appearances and he has seven saves in that stretch. The 27-year-old has a 1.51 ERA and 0.80 WHIP with an incredible 15.3 K/9 in 47 2/3 innings. He is 28-for-29 in save situations, the best save percentage in all of baseball. Hader has been the most consistent closer all season, and he looks like there is still a lot of gas left in the tank heading into fantasy playoffs.
Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader recorded one out and earned a save over Washington on Sunday. Hader entered a 7-3 game with two outs and two runners on base and managed to escape the jam, forcing Juan Soto to ground into a fielder's choice. The 27-year-old southpaw has converted six straight save opportunities, making him 26-for-27 on the year. He's sporting a 1.61 ERA and a77:16 K: BB through 44 2/3 innings and continues to be dominant against all opponents.
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.
