Robertson stuck out two in the frame and worked around a one-out single to lock down the victory. The 29-year-old now has back-to-back scoreless appearances since his blowup against the Twins on Sunday and remains capable of emerging as a top fantasy closer this year. The 29-year-old has struck out 34 batters in just 20 innings.

David Robertson had a meltdown in a save situation Sunday, surrendering five runs while recording just two outs in a loss to the Twins.

Robertson entered the game trying to protect a one-run lead and promptly served up a game-tying homer to Josh Willingham to lead off the inning. That was just the beginning, as the Twins added four more tallies on two hits and three walks. Robertson's ERA went from 2.08 all the way up to 4.50 after the ugly afternoon.
Jun 1 - 4:29 PM

David Robertson tossed a scoreless ninth inning Saturday against the Twins to secure his 12th save of the season.

David Robertson allowed an unearned run but hung on to record his 11th save of the season in Monday's win over the Cardinals.

However, Robertson then bowed his neck and got Matt Carpenter to ground out and Kolten Wong to strike out to end it. The Yankees closer holds a 2.40 ERA and has converted 11-of-12 save chances this season.
May 26 - 9:48 PM

David Robertson bounced back from a rough Friday to toss a scoreless 10th inning against the White Sox on Saturday for his 10th save of the season.

However, the Yankees' closer was able to buckle down and get Gordon Beckham to strike out looking to end it. Robertson is now 10-for-11 in save chances this season to go along with a 2.57 ERA and 21/3 K/BB ratio in 14 innings.
May 24 - 5:18 PM

David Robertson blew his first save of the season and took the loss Friday against the White Sox.

After entering the bottom of the ninth inning with a one-run lead, Robertson allowed a lead-off single to Dayan Viciedo before serving up a walk-off two-run homer to Adam Dunn. It was a tough loss for the Yankees, but Robertson is going to be fine. Even after Friday's hiccup, he has a solid 2.77 ERA and 18/3 K/BB ratio in 13 innings this season.

David Robertson earned his ninth save of 2014 as the Yankees beat the Cubs 4-2 in 13 innings on Wednesday.

Robertson surrendered a one-out single to Welington Castillo, but then retired Nate Schierholtz on a flyout to shallow right field and Jeff Baker via a swinging strikeout. Robertson owns a dominant 1.42 ERA, 0.63 WHIP, and 17/2 K/BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings this season.
May 21 - 7:10 PM

David Robertson picked up his seventh save of the season with 1 1/3 scoreless innings against the Mets on Thursday.

The Yankees were in a bit of a pickle, as the Mets had the tying run on third base with two outs in the eighth inning, so they called on Robertson to squelch the threat. He did, inducing David Wright to ground out. The ninth inning was easy as pie for him, getting consecutive strikeouts of Chris Young and Lucas Duda to end the ballgame. Robertson, the successor to Mariano Rivera, has done well when he has been healthy, converting all seven of his save chances while posting a 1.74 ERA with a 12/2 K/BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings.
