Player Outlook
The Mets leaned on David Robertson's experience in the ninth inning after closer Edwin Diaz went down during the World Baseball Classic. The veteran reliever was outstanding for New York, compiling a 2.05 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over 44 innings, with 14 saves, seven holds and four wins. His strong first-half was attractive to playoff-contending clubs and he landed in Miami via mid-season trade. However, Robertson's performance fell off with his new team and he was removed from closing duties after blowing three of seven save opportunities with the Marlins. The veteran still finished the year with 18 saves, 10 holds and solid ratios, so it's clear he can still be effective with his arsenal. That said, with Robertson's age-39 season upcoming, the free-agent's market may be somewhat limited.

  • Rangers' David Robertson: Escapes jam for hold

    Robertson allowed one hit, hit a batter and struck out three over a scoreless eighth inning Thursday, earning a hold in a 3-1 win over the Dodgers. Robertson put the first two batters he faced aboard, setting up a rematch with the top of the Dodgers' lineup after he had struck out Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani and Freddie Freeman on Wednesday to preserve a Texas lead. Robertson proceeded to do the same exact thing Thursday. The veteran reliever has 14 holds this season to go with a 3.19 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 36.2 percent strikeout rate, his highest mark since 2017.

  • Rangers' David Robertson: Impressively strikes out side

    Robertson earned his 13th hold in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Dodgers. He struck out all three batters faced in the eighth inning. The Rangers were nursing a 3-1 lead when Robertson entered to start the eighth, and the right-hander was impressive, striking out Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani and Freddie Freeman (all swinging). The 39-year-old Robertson has a 3.30 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 43 strikeouts over 30 innings as he continues to operate as the setup man to closer Kirby Yates.

  • Rangers' David Robertson: Charged with blown save, loss

    Robertson (2-1) had a blown save and was the losing pitcher in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Rockies. The reliever failed to record an out and was charged with four runs on two hits, a walk and a hit batter. The usually reliable Robertson entered with the Rangers holding a 3-2 lead, a runner on second base and two outs. As rain began to fall, he yielded a run-scoring single to the first batter he faced. After a wild pitch, another RBI single, a hit batsman and a walk, Robertson was removed with the bases loaded. The right-hander, who entered the game with a 0.87 ERA, threw just 11 strikes among 22 pitches.

  • Rangers' David Robertson: Blows save Wednesday

    Robertson gave up a run on two hits and a walk over 1.1 innings Wednesday, getting charged with his second blown save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Tigers. He struck out one. The veteran right-hander entered the game with one on and one out in the seventh inning to protect a 4-3 lead, and while he escaped that small jam, Robertson couldn't stop Detroit from tying things up in the bottom of the eighth. It's only the second run he's allowed this season, and the 39-year-old has been busy to begin the year, posting a 1.69 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 10:4 K:BB through 10.2 innings. Despite those strong ratios, he's 0-for-2 in converting save chances while adding a win and six holds in his 10 appearances, while Kirby Yates seems to be strengthening his grip on the closer role for Texas.

  • Rangers' David Robertson: Throws scoreless late-game inning

    Robertson worked a 1-2-3 eighth inning in Friday's 12-8 win over the Astros. Texas was rolling before Houston's five-run seventh inning forced manager Bruce Bochy to use a couple of his trusted arms, including Robertson and Kirby Yates. Both relievers figure to be in the mix for saves following Bochy's decision to move Jose Leclerc to low-leverage situations, as reported by Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com. Wilson described to move as temporary, but there could be permanence if Robertson or Yates seize the opportunity. Robertson has allowed one run on four hits and three walks while striking out eight over 8.1 innings. Yates has not allowed a run in five outings (five innings).

  • Rangers' David Robertson: Strong start to season

    Robertson worked around two hits while striking out one over a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Rays. Robertson found himself with runners on the corners and one out before coaxing a shallow flyout off the bat of Yandy Diaz and an Amed Rosario groundout to get out of the inning unscathed. Robertson has been sharp in a setup role to start the season, allowing just three hits and three walks over four scoreless appearances. Meanwhile, Jose Leclerc has struggled early, allowing at least one run in each of his three appearances, leaving an opening for Robertson to work his way into the ninth-inning picture.

  • Rangers' David Robertson: Earns win in opener

    Robertson (1-0) picked up the win Thursday, working around a pair of walks in a scoreless inning against the Cubs. He struck out one. Robertson kept Chicago off the board in the top of the 10th inning, working out of a bases-loaded jam, before Jonah Heim ended the game with a walk-off single in the bottom half of the frame. Jose Leclerc, who allowed a run in the ninth inning Thursday, is the presumed closer in Texas, though Robertson would be next in line and figures to see a fair amount of save chances this year. The 38-year-old right-hander tallied 18 saves across 65.1 innings between the Mets and Marlins last season, posting a 3.03 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 78:25 K:BB.

  • Rangers' David Robertson: On track for setup role

    Robertson is poised to begin the season in a setup role after Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday there is a "strong possibility" Jose Leclerc will open as the closer, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Robertson was never likely to fully usurp Leclerc from the job during spring training, but there seemed to be a chance Bochy might utilize a committee approach. Robertson will instead begin the campaign in a setup role, which significantly dampens his fantasy outlook. The 38-year-old is still likely to be the next man up and should see occasional save chances even if Leclerc is pitching well.

  • Marlins' David Robertson: Earns sixth win

    Robertson (6-6) earned the win Sunday against the Phillies. He allowed a hit and two walks while striking out three in a scoreless inning. Robertson certainly didn't make things easy in the seventh inning Sunday -- after striking out the first two batters in the frame, he'd load the bases on a pair of walks and a hit before ultimately punching out Alec Bohm. The Marlins would take the lead in the bottom half of the inning, giving Robertson his second win in his last three appearances. The veteran right-hander has now delivered three consecutive scoreless outings after giving up eight runs (six earned) in his previous four appearances. Tanner Scott seems to have locked down the closing job in Miami, though they'll still rely on Robertson as a high-leverage option. He now sports a 3.10 ERA with a 1.19 WHIP and 65:23 K:BB in 58 innings between the Marlins and Mets this season.

  • Marlins' David Robertson: On outs as Miami closer

    The Marlins are expected to remove Robertson from the closing role beginning with Sunday's game against the Nationals, Craig Mish of the Miami Herald reports. Marlins manager Skip Schumaker hasn't confirmed that Robertson has lost hold of the ninth-inning gig, but the writing appears to be on the wall for the right-hander's removal from the role after he blew his second save in the last three chances in Saturday's loss to Washington. Since being acquired from the Mets on July 27, Robertson has turned in a 7.20 ERA and 1.70 WHIP over 10 innings while blowing three of seven save opportunities. Tanner Scott profiles as the most likely option to take over as Miami's closer, though it's possible that Schumaker opts to take a committee approach to save situations.

  • Marlins' David Robertson: Blows another save

    Robertson (4-5) took the loss and blew the save in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Nationals, giving up two runs (one earned) on two hits in the ninth inning. He struck out one. Lane Thomas greeted Robertson with a triple to open the top of the ninth, and while he got erased at home plate on a fielder's choice, the veteran reliever never regained his focus. Robertson has not been the answer at closer for Miami -- since being picked up at the trade deadline from the Mets, he's stumbled to a 7.20 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 9:6 K:BB through 10 innings while blowing three of his seven save chances. Tanner Scott has yet to give up a run in August while A.J. Puk has thrived in a return to a setup role since Robertson was acquired, so it wouldn't be a surprise if manager Skip Schumaker shuffled around his high-leverage corps once again before the end of the season.

  • Marlins' David Robertson: Collects 18th save

    Robertson walked one and struck out one in a scoreless and hitless inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Padres. Robertson took a blown save his last time out, allowing three runs in an inning versus the Dodgers on Saturday. It appears that was just a blip on the radar, as he was in much better form Tuesday while picking up his 18th save in 23 chances this season. The veteran right-hander has allowed multiple runs three times over eight outings in August, but he's still at a 2.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 56:19 K:BB through 53 innings between the Mets and the Marlins this year.

  • Marlins' David Robertson: Takes blown save Saturday

    Robertson (4-4) allowed three runs on four hits and two walks over one inning, taking the loss and a blown save in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Dodgers. Robertson got the first out and then proceeded to allow five straight batters to reach base. He's been scored on in three of his eight appearances with the Marlins, and all three of those instances have resulted in multiple runs on his ledger. Robertson is at a 2.94 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 55:18 K:BB through 52 innings this year while going 17-for-22 in save chances between the Mets and the Marlins.

  • Marlins' David Robertson: Takes first blown save with Miami

    Robertson (4-3) blew the save and took the loss Tuesday against the Phillies. He allowed three runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one in an inning of work. It was a brutal night for Robertson in his second appearance with Miami. Bryce Harper tied the game 1-1 with an RBI double before Robertson surrendered a two-run homer to Nick Castellanos that would prove to be the game-winning hit. The Marlins will hope this was an anomaly in what's been an otherwise excellent year for the 38-year-old Robertson. Overall, Robertson's ERA sits at 2.54 with a 1.02 WHIP and 50:14 K:BB across 46 innings this season, and he's gone 15-for-19 in save opportunities.

  • Marlins' David Robertson: Earns first save as Marlin

    Robertson picked up the save in Sunday's 8-6 victory over Detroit. He struck out one over a perfect inning. Robertson got his first taste of action in a Miami uniform Sunday after being dealt by the Mets on Thursday, and he immediately assumed ninth-inning duties for the Marlins. The 38-year-old was perfect for save No. 15 and has now gone 3.2 innings without allowing a hit. Robertson figures to play a crucial role for the Marlins during their Wild Card chase and should receive more save opportunities with the team than he saw in New York.

  • Marlins' David Robertson: Will report Saturday

    Robertston will officially be activated by the Marlins on Saturday, Craig Mish of the Miami Herald reports. Robertson was traded from the Mets to the Marlins late Thursday but will need about a day to get settled in before reporting for duty. He is expected to take over as the closer for Miami, but if the club has a late-inning lead Friday they could turn to A.J. Puk or Tanner Scott.

  • Marlins' David Robertson: Dealt to Miami

    Robertson was traded by the Mets to the Marlins in exchange for two prospects Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. The Marlins have been trying to bolster their bullpen in the last few days, first flipping Dylan Floro for Jorge Lopez. Now they've added Robertson, who has served as the Mets' primary closer this season and put together a stellar 2.05 ERA and 1.00 WHIP to go along with a 48:13 K:BB across 44 frames. It's unclear if he'll get the full allotment of saves in Miami, though he does pair well with A.J. Puk given their complementary handedness.

  • Mets' David Robertson: Shaky effort in 13th save

    Robertson recorded his 13th save of the season in Tuesday's 11-10 win over the White Sox, giving up a run on a hit and two walks in the ninth inning. The veteran reliever managed to get only 11 of his 22 pitches over the plate, but he got Tim Anderson to fly out with runners on second and third to escape the jam he had created. Robertson could be wearing down after a busy first half, and over his last eight appearances he has a 4.32 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 6:5 K:BB through 8.1 innings. Adam Ottavino's not pitching any better at the moment, however, and the Mets don't have any other clear alternatives for the closer role, so Robertson's job appears to be safe -- unless the front office decides to have a fire sale at the trade deadline.

  • Mets' David Robertson: Picks up win

    Robertson (4-2) earned the win over the Dodgers on Sunday after allowing a hit and striking out a batter over two scoreless innings. Robertson stranded Chris Taylor in scoring position in the ninth after allowing a double and then retired all three Dodger hitters in the 10th to strand the automatic runner. The Mets would walk it off in the bottom of the inning, awarding Robertson is fourth win of the year to compliment his 12 saves. The 38-year-old has pitched to a sparkling 1.96 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 47:11 K:BB in 41.1 innings this season. Given his experience, Robertson could be one of the top relievers available on the trade market should the Mets end up deciding to sell.

  • Mets' David Robertson: Locks down 13th save

    Robertson struck out one in a perfect inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Diamondbacks. Robertson picked up his second save in as many days with a clean inning. He's kept runs off the board in 10 of his last 11 appearances while going 3-for-4 in save chances in that span. The 38-year-old is at a 1.88 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 45:11 K:BB, 13 saves and six holds through 38.1 innings overall.
