David Robertson took his fourth loss after giving up a three-run homer in a tie game Tuesday against the Astros.
It was the first homer allowed by Robertson since June 1, but he was still booed off the mound by the Yankee Stadium faithful as he left. Because it was a tie game, he remained 33-for-35 in save chances this year. He had allowed a total of one hit in six scoreless innings this month. Aug 19 - 11:20 PM

David Robertson said earlier this week that he "probably would have gone for a discount" on a contract extension last offseason.

That's not the case anymore, though. "It would have to be a legit offer at this point of the year,’’ said Robertson. An impending free agent, Robertson is making $5.215 million this season and should be able to land a big multi-year deal on the open market. It will be interesting to see if the Yanks try to lock him up or just let him walk and give the closer job to Dellin Betances.

Pitching for a third straight day, David Robertson pitched a perfect ninth Monday against the Tigers for his 30th save.

Robertson was really shaky Sunday night, but he had no problems against the bottom of Detroit's order tonight, striking out two of the three batters he faced. He probably will get Tuesday off now, which could result in a save chance for Dellin Betances.
Aug 4 - 10:37 PM

David Robertson racked up his 29th save of the season on Sunday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a one-run advantage against the Red Sox.

He allowed a leadoff single to Christian Vazquez, but that runner was erased on a double play. Aside from one major blowup, Robertson has done a tremendous job this season, posting a 2.74 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 69/15 K/BB ratio through his 42 2/3 innings.

David Robertson allowed two runs but stranded the bases loaded to secure the save against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Nothing came easy for pitchers in Arlington on Tuesday night, as nine of the 10 pitchers used allowed at least one run. Robertson's downfall was his command, as he walked three to go with two singles in the inning. But with the game on the line, the right-hander got Adrian Beltre to fly out to left field to end it. Robertson has allowed runs in each of his last two outings but still owns a 2.88 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 68/14 K/BB ratio through 40 2/3 innings. It'll take more than two shaky outings to unseat Robertson as the closer in the Bronx.

David Robertson tossed a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Blue Jays for his 26th save of the season.

Jul 18 - 10:00 PM

David Robertson held the Indians scoreless in the 14th inning to pick up his 22nd save of the season as the Yankees won on Wednesday.

Things were a bit tense as Jason Kipnis singled with one out and stole second, leaving the tying run 180 feet away, but Robertson was able to strike out Asdrubal Cabrera and get Michael Brantley to fly out to end the ballgame after 14 innings. Robertson is now 22-for-24 in save situations with a 2.84 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 57/10 K/BB ratio.
Jul 10 - 12:08 AM

David Robertson got all three ninth inning outs on strikeouts en route to his 19th save in Thursday's victory against the Twins.

Just another dominant outing for the right-hander in his first season as the successor to Mariano Rivera. Robertson is now 19-for-21 in save chances with a 2.83 ERA, a 1.01 WHIP, and a 51/10 K/BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings.
Jul 3 - 10:56 PM

David Robertson tossed 1 2/3 scoreless innings of relief to pick up his 18th save of the season in Wednesday's win over the Blue Jays.

It was Robertson's first appearance in a week, but he didn't show any rust. The right-hander relieved Adam Warren with one out and one on in the eighth inning and was able to record back-to-back strikeouts to end the frame. He then had a 1-2-3 ninth inning. Robertson is now 18-for-20 in save opportunities along with a 3.08 ERA, a 1.03 WHIP, and a 47/9 K/BB ratio.
Jun 25 - 10:26 PM

David Robertson worked a scoreless ninth inning for his 17th save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

Robertson struck out two, but did make things a little tense after allowing a two-out triple to Munenori Kawasaki. Running the count to 3-2 after going ahead 0-2 against Anthony Gose, Robertson was able to record the backwards K to end the ballgame. The right-hander has a 3.42 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP along with a 43/9 K/BB ratio, and is 17-for-19 in save chances.
Jun 17 - 10:24 PM

David Robertson struck out three over a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Mariners to earn his 15th save of the season.

He also walked a batter. Dellin Betances gave up a run in front of him, so you can add a bit more cushion to Robertson's hold on the closer's gig. Robertson is 15-for-17 in save opportunities to go with a 3.68 ERA and 1.14 WHIP this year.
Jun 11 - 1:20 AM

David Robertson delivered a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Royals for his 14th save of the season.

Robertson struck out two in the inning and worked around a double and a walk to lock down the victory for the Yankees. He has worked three times in the past four days, so Yankees manager Joe Girardi may try to stay away from him on Saturday.
Jun 7 - 12:09 AM

David Robertson tossed a scoreless ninth inning Thursday against the Athletics for his 13th save of the season.

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.
Jun 5 - 4:43 PM

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.
