David Robertson allowed a run but still got his 22nd save of the season, finishing out Monday's 10-8 win against the Red Sox.
It seemed like an easy ninth for the right-hander after getting two quick ground outs. But he walked Daniel Nava, who advanced to second base on fielder's indifference, before giving up an RBI single to Pablo Sandoval. That brought the winning run to the plate, and he walked Alejandro De Aza. Thankfully for him, he got Ryan Hanigan to ground out to end the threat. Robertson has allowed runs in back-to-back appearances but is now 22-for-27 in save situations this year with a 2.63 ERA and a 58/10 K/BB ratio in 41 innings. Jul 27 - 11:25 PM

David Robertson disposed of the Cubs in the ninth inning on Friday, retiring all three hitters he faced to preserve a one-run lead.

Facing the heart of the Cubs order, Robertson fanned Kris Bryant and Jorge Soler before retiring Chris Coghlan to end the ballgame. He has now converted 19 of his first 23 save chances on the season while compiling a 2.45 ERA and 0.90 WHIP.

David Robertson struck out all three batters he faced, earning the save in Friday's 1-0 win over the Orioles.

Robertson fanned Matt Wieters, Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy in an impressive display of casual dominance. He has had poor moments this season and is a sketchy 17-for-21 in save chances, but he also carries a 48/7 K/BB ratio over 33 2/3 innings. With a 2.67 ERA, we expect him to continue to put up big numbers from the closer role.
Jul 3 - 11:12 PM

David Robertson got into a bit of trouble but escaped unscathed Tuesday, pitching a scoreless 10th inning to earn the save against the Cardinals.

Robertson got two quick outs before back-to-back singles by Jason Heyward and Yadier Molina made things interesting. Robertson got Xavier Scruggs to ground out to end the game and the threat, though, to pick up his 16th save of the season. It hasn't all been smooth lately, but Robertson owns a 2.76 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 45/7 K/BB ratio and is the unquestioned closer for the Sox.

David Robertson bent but didn't break, allowing two runs but still preserving the lead as the White Sox topped the Tigers 8-7 in 10 innings on Thursday.

Carlos Sanchez's three-run triple appeared to be more than enough for the White Sox in the top half of the 10th, but Robertson wound up loading the bases on two singles and a walk with one out. Pinch-hitter Bryan Holaday then brought in two runs on another single. Robertson bounced back, getting Ian Kinsler to fly out, then getting Josh Wilson to strike out to end the game. Robertson has had a few more stressful situations than the White Sox would prefer, now 15-for-19 in save opportunities with a 2.84 ERA and a 44/7 K/BB ratio in 31 2/3 innings.

David Robertson blew a save and took the loss Friday against the Rangers after allowing two runs in the ninth inning.

Following a brilliant outing from Chris Sale, Robertson was trying to hold a one-run lead, but he issued a one-out walk to Shin-Soo Choo before giving up a single to Elvis Andrus and uncorking a wild pitch to move both runners into scoring position. He was able to get Joey Gallo to strike out swinging for the second out, but after walking Prince Fielder intentionally to load the bases, pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland hit a go-ahead two-run single. The White Sox have now lost eight straight games. This was Robertson's fourth blown save of the season and his third in his last seven chances.

David Robertson earned his 12th save of the season in the White Sox' win over the Astros on Tuesday.

Robertson gave up a hit to start his outing but regrouped to put the Astros away without much consternation. The appearance was his fourth straight without allowing a run, lowering his ERA to 2.10 with a 0.78 WHIP and 38/3 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings of work.
Jun 10 - 12:44 AM

David Robertson pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his 11th save as the White Sox narrowly escaped with a 3-1 win against the Astros on Monday.

Robertson hit Chris Carter with a pitch to bring the potential tying run to the plate with one out, but got consecutive strikeouts of Carlos Correa and Hank Conger to finish out the game. Robertson has gotten the save in 11 of 14 tries thus far with a 2.19 ERA and an outstanding 37/3 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings.
Jun 8 - 11:47 PM

David Robertson pitched a scoreless 11th inning Friday against the Astros to convert his 10th save of the season.

After blowing back-to-back saves earlier this week, Robertson bounced back nicely in this one, working around a two-out single to finish off the victory. The 30-year-old has a 2.49 ERA and 32/3 K/BB ratio over 21 2/3 innings of work this season and is clearly a top-tier closer in fantasy leagues.
May 30 - 12:41 AM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said David Robertson probably won't pitch in Thursday's doubleheader.

Robertson blew back-to-back saves on Tuesday and Wednesday, and Wednesday's appearance was a two-inning affair. Chicago will play the matchups if a save opportunity arises at some point Thursday at Camden Yards. Robertson still owns a shiny 2.61 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 31/3 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings this season and is not at all in danger of losing his job as the White Sox closer.
May 28 - 11:30 AM

David Robertson blew the save but vultured a win as the White Sox won 5-3 in 10 innings over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Robertson was victimized by Josh Donaldson on Tuesday as he hit a walk-off three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning. Donaldson bit him again on Wednesday, hitting a game-tying solo home run in the ninth. The White Sox rallied for two runs in the top of the 10th and Robertson tossed a scoreless bottom-half to grab the win. He's 4-1 and 9-for-12 in save chances with a 2.61 ERA and a 31/3 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings.
May 27 - 4:27 PM

David Robertson blew his second save on Tuesday, serving up a walk-off three-run home run in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Robertson, who got the final out of the eighth inning, entered the bottom of the ninth protecting a 9-7 lead. He allowed a lead-off single to Josh Thole, followed by a Jose Reyes double to bring up Josh Donaldson. Donaldson clubbed a walk-off three-run home run to right field. Robertson falls to 9-for-11 in save chances with a 2.41 ERA and a 29/2 K/BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings.
May 26 - 10:59 PM

David Robertson earned a four-out save Saturday as the White Sox beat the A's by a score of 4-3.

Robertson was called on in the bottom of the eighth inning to protect a flimsy one-run Chicago lead and he did what he's done all year: dominated the opposition. The right-hander boasts a 1.10 ERA, 0.73 WHIP, and 27/2 K/BB ratio over his first 16 1/3 innings with the Pale Hose. Saturday's save was his eighth of the season.
