  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Notches 13th save

    Holmes walked one and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his 13th save of the season in a 4-2 win over the White Sox.

    The right-hander is back in a four-way tie for the league lead in saves with Emmanuel Clase, Kyle Finnegan and Ryan Helsley, but Holmes is the only one of the quartet who still sports a 0.00 ERA. The closer's luck on that front will run out eventually, but his 0.98 WHIP and 23:4 K:BB through 19.1 innings highlight how dominant he's been to this point.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Picks up 12th save

    Holmes earned the save in Friday's 2-0 win over the Rays, working around a hit and two walks while striking out three in a scoreless ninth inning.

    The Rays loaded the bases against Holmes in the ninth before the right-hander struck out Jonny DeLuca for the final out. Holmes has yet to allow an earned run this year, pitching to a 1.04 WHIP with 21:3 K:BB over 17.1 innings. He's up to 12 saves, tied with Kyle Finnegan and Robert Suarez for the league lead.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Nails down 11th save

    Holmes gave up a hit and struck out two in 1.1 scoreless innings Saturday to record his 11th save of the season in a 5-3 win over the Tigers.

    The right-hander is tied with the Cardinals' Ryan Helsley for the league lead in saves. Holmes kept his ERA a pristine 0.00 with Saturday's performance, although he did give up three unearned runs in his one blown save, and through 15 innings he's delivered a 0.92 WHIP and 18:1 K:BB.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Lands five-out save

    Holmes earned the save Wednesday, allowing one hit with three strikeouts over 1.2 scoreless innings against Baltimore.

    Holmes capped off an excellent game by the Yankees pitching staff, as they yielded three hits and no runs as a whole. Individually, Holmes logged three strikeouts for the first time all year and his 1.2 innings of work marked his longest outing of the campaign. He's yet to allow an earned run during 15 innings and is tied for the MLB lead in saves with 10.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Secures ninth save

    Holmes struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his ninth save of the season in a 4-3 win over the A's.

    The right-hander needed only nine pitches (seven strikes) to carve up the bottom of the Oakland order. Holmes has been brilliant to begin the season, converting nine of 10 save chances with a 0.00 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 10:1 K:BB through 12 innings, and he sits one ahead of the Padres' Robert Suarez for the MLB saves lead.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Nabs league-leading eighth save

    Holmes gave up two hits in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his eighth save of the season in a 5-3 win over the Rays.

    The veteran right-hander continued his fast start to the campaign. Holmes does have one blown save on his ledger due to some unearned runs, but through 10 innings he sports a 0.00 ERA to go along with his MLB-leading saves total. With the 14-6 Yankees tied for the best record in the majors, save chances should remain plentiful for the team's undisputed closer.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Notches seventh save

    Holmes earned the save in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Blue Jays, allowing one hit in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Holmes has yet to allow an earned run through nine appearances this year and he improved to 7-for-8 in save chances, tying Kyle Finnegan and Ryan Helsley for the league lead. The 31-year-old Holmes is establishing himself as one of the better closing options in baseball, earning a firm grasp on the ninth-inning job in New York after pitching to sub-3.00 ERAs in each of his previous two campaigns.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Secures save in Game 1

    Holmes allowed a hit and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader at Cleveland.

    The right-hander entered with a 3-2 lead and looked to be in trouble after giving up a leadoff double, but Holmes struck out the next two batters on 10 pitches before inducing a groundout to end the contest. The 31-year-old is now 6-for-7 in save chances this season, though he didn't allow any runs in the blown save. In fact, Holmes has yet to surrender an earned run through seven outings this season. With Holmes, Caleb Ferguson and Ian Hamilton all pitching in the matinee Saturday, Victor Gonzalez could be the favorite to step in for a save chance in Game 2, should one arise.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Nails down save No. 5

    Holmes struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his fifth save of the season in a 3-2 win over the Marlins.

    The right-hander leads the majors in saves in the early going, and he has yet to allow an earned run through six innings while posting a 3:0 K:BB. Holmes should continue seeing a high volume of save chances for a Yankees team that was the first in MLB to reach double-digit wins this season.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Escapes with fourth save

    Holmes picked up the save against the Blue Jays on Saturday, striking out one over two-thirds of an inning while allowing one hit.

    Holmes entered the contest with one out and two runners on as the Blue Jays made a strong comeback attempt late. The right-handed reliever then saw two runners come home while he was on the mound, though both of those would not count against him, as he managed to retire two of the three hitters he faced to notch his fourth save. That ties him with Emmanuel Clase for the major-league lead, while Holmes is also yet to allow a run through his first five appearances.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Blows save but nabs win Wednesday

    Holmes (1-0) blew a save but was credited with the win Wednesday against Arizona, allowing three unearned runs on one hit and striking out one batter over 1.1 innings.

    The game went into extra frames, and Holmes got the call in the bottom of the 10th after the Yankees had taken a two-run lead. He couldn't convert the save, but it would be unfair to pin the fault on him. After Holmes retired the first batter he faced on a groundout, shortstop Anthony Volpe committed a throwing error that allowed a run to score and put the tying run on second base. Holmes bounced back to retire the next batter for what should been the third out, but the runner advanced to third on what was instead out No. 2 and then scored on a Corbin Carroll infield single. Holmes returned for the top of the 11th after New York took another two-run lead and was charged with another unearned run when the inherited runner came around to score following his departure, but Caleb Ferguson was able to nail down the save and allow Holmes to emerge with the victory. Despite the chaotic outing, Holmes' ERA remains at 0.00 since all three runs against him were unearned, and he now has a victory to go along with his three saves on the campaign.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Caps off sweep with third save

    Holmes earned a save Sunday against the Astros, allowing no runs on two hits and no walks across one inning. He didn't record a strikeout.

    Holmes cashed in on his third save opportunity of the season, finishing the Yankees' first series with saves in three of four games. While he hasn't logged a strikeout in his three innings of work, he's also refrained from allowing a runner to score. Holmes is already one-eighth of the way to matching his 2023 save total and is one of five closers with multiple saves this season.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Picks up save No. 2

    Holmes tossed a scoreless inning Saturday in Houston to record a save in the Yankees' 5-3 victory.

    Holmes failed to record a strikeout for the second time in as many save chances. He disposed of the Astros relatively easy in this one, though, pitching around a two-out hit-by-pitch as he induced his third groundout of the frame. Holmes has plenty of job security as the Yankees' closer in the early stages of the season.

  • Yankees' Clay Holmes: Hangs on for opening-day save

    Holmes worked around three hits to deliver a scoreless ninth inning, earning the save in a 5-4 win over the Astros on Thursday.

    It certainly appeared that Houston was poised to tie the game in the ninth after two of the first three batters reached safely off Holmes. However, Juan Soto threw out Mauricio Dubon at home for the second out to preserve the one-run lead, before Holmes coaxed a groundout off the bat of Alex Bregman to seal the victory. While Thursday's outing may have been more tenuous than Holmes would have liked, the 31-year-old right-hander appears to be locked into the closing job in New York. Holmes recorded 24 saves last season, pitching to a 2.86 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 71:23 K:BB across 63 innings.
