Ryan Pressly News
Houston Astros closer Ryan Pressly blew his sixth save of the season in Monday's 8-7 loss to the Orioles, falling to 3-5. Pressly came on to pitch the top of the ninth inning up by two. He got the first out on a strikeout, allowed back-to-back singles, allowed a go-ahead three-run home run, and allowed a walk before ending the inning on back-to-back strikeouts. Despite the poor outing, the 34-year-old has been a higher-end fantasy contributor once again this season, securing 30 saves with a 3.84 ERA and a 10.48 K/9 rate.
Houston Astros relief pitcher Ryan Pressly has been one of the more reliable closers throughout this season. The 34-year-old was called upon to protect a three-run lead versus the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday. He allowed a two-out single to Triston Casas, but was able to get out of the inning without any damage. The right-hander holds a 3.32 ERA with 63 strikeouts through 57 innings of work. Fantasy managers should continue to lean on him for saves down the stretch of the regular season.
Houston Astros relief pitcher Ryan Pressly picked up the save on Tuesday when he allowed just one hit with a pair of strikeouts over a scoreless ninth inning in a 6-5 win over the Miami Marlins. Pressly entered in the bottom of the ninth with the Astros clinging to a one-run lead. He got Bryan De La Cruz to line out before Jesus Sanchez ripped a double. Pressly then settled in and struck out both Avisail Garcia and Joey Wendle to end the game. The 34-year-old stopper is not 28-for-32 on save chances this season and owns a solid 2.92 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and 56:10 K/BB ratio over 52 1/3 innings.
Houston Astros closer Ryan Pressly turned in another quality season in 2022 and should have no trouble continuing that success in 2023 as one of fantasy baseball's top closing options. The relief pitcher made 50 appearances for the Houston-based American League West club during the 2022 campaign, logging a 2.98 ERA and a 2.31 FIP in 48.1 innings of work. He also added 65 strikeouts on the season to go along with 13 walks and a career-high 33 saves. Those saves should continue to come with regularity for the defending World Series champions this coming season, as Pressly is pitching in an ideal fantasy environment on a team with both a quality bullpen and an excellent lineup. Rafael Montero, Ryne Stanek, Hector Neris, and Bryan Abreu are all back as setup options to help build the bridge to Pressly in the ninth inning, while Jose Abreu joined the Astros, giving Houston an even stronger lineup. Pressly should once again be a top-five option at the position in fantasy drafts ahead of the 2023 season.
