  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Earns win Tuesday

    Diaz (7-3) earned the win after he pitched 1.1 innings scoreless innings, striking out two batters in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Cubs.

    Diaz entered the game with two outs in the top of the eighth inning and the score tied at 2-2, getting Ian Happ to fly out to end the frame. He returned for the top of the ninth, striking out two batters before earning the win when Spencer Steer ripped a walkoff RBI double in the bottom of the inning. Diaz now sports a 1.84 ERA and 0.96 WHIP with 83 strikeouts over 63.2 frames in 59 appearances this season. The reliever appears to be on track to be one of the best late-inning options in fantasy next year and has gone 10-for-14 in save chances with 13 holds in 2022.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Yields run, earns save

    Diaz allowed one run on two walks in one inning while picking up a save over the Cubs on Monday.

    Diaz struggled with his command and nearly let the Cubs make a late comeback but he escaped with his 10th save of the year. The right-handed rookie has given up three earned runs over his last 12 appearances since his last blown save Aug. 23. Despite the shaky outing, Diaz owns a 1.88 ERA with an 81:33 K:BB through 58 appearances.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Takes loss in extra frame

    Diaz (6-3) allowed an unearned run on one walk and one hit while striking out two across 1.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Diaz entered the game in the ninth inning and kept the score knotted at 3-3. He remained on the mound for the 10th inning and allowed a soft bloop hit to Kevin Newman to surrender the winning run. Despite the minor setback, Diaz has maintained a 1.80 ERA with a 12:5 K:BB across 10 innings in September. He should remain locked into the closer role in the final week of the season.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Two-out save

    Diaz tallied the final two outs without allowing a baserunner to earn the save Wednesday against Boston.

Since the start of September, Diaz has allowed two earned runs across 7.1 innings while also picking up two wins and two saves. He's served as Cincinnati's primary closer since early August and has maintained a 1.84 ERA with a 76:30 K:BB across 58.2 innings for the campaign.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Survives for seventh save

    Diaz picked up a save against the Cardinals on Thursday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk over one inning.

    St. Louis managed only one run and one hit against a trio of Cincinnati pitchers through eight frames, and Diaz was asked to preserve a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth. He allowed a shift-busting single to begin the frame and then walked Tommy Edman to put the tying runs on base before retiring Paul Goldschmidt on a flyout. Nolan Arenado then hit a pop-fly single to load the bases, and Albert Pujols followed with a sacrifice fly, but Diaz got Corey Dickerson to ground out to end the game and earn the save. Despite the shaky outing, Diaz has looked like the Reds' closer of the future, posting a 1.93 ERA and 75:27 K:BB over 56 innings. He's likely to get most of Cincinnati's save chances down the stretch, though those may be limited given the team's poor record.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Earns win Thursday

    Diaz (6-2) earned the win in Thursday's 4-3 victory over the Cubs. He allowed one run on one hit and zero walks while striking out three over 1.2 innings.

    Diaz entered the game with one out in the seventh inning down 2-1 and struck out the two batters he faced. He stuck around for the eighth inning after the Reds the game 2-2, and he surrendered a one-out solo shot off the bat of Seiya Suzuki before retiring the next two batters. Cincinnati went on to score two in the ninth to earn Diaz his sixth win in what was a back-and-forth finish to the game. Despite the hiccup, Diaz still owns a dazzling 1.83 ERA and 0.94 WHIP and remains the Reds' primary closer down the stretch.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Picks up win in relief

    Diaz (5-2) earned the win Friday against the Rockies. He allowed a hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning.

    Diaz was called upon in the ninth inning of a tied game and pitched well for the Reds, keeping the Rockies off the board. He picked up the win after Jonathan India hit a walkoff RBI single. Diaz seems to be the current favorite late-game option for the Reds. He is one save behind Hunter Strickland for the team lead, but Strickland's last save was Aug. 1 and Diaz has picked up three since then. Diaz also has an impressive 1.72 ERA and and 0.96 WHIP.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Nabs four-out save

    Diaz earned a save against the Nationals on Saturday, issuing one walk and striking out two batters over 1.1 scoreless innings.

    Diaz entered in the eighth inning with the tying run at the plate, and he retired Keibert Ruiz on a groundout to end the frame. The fireballing reliever stayed in for the ninth and had little trouble finishing off the save despite issuing a two-out walk. Diaz has only two saves across his past nine outings, but he appears to be the Reds' primary closer despite the fact that he isn't going to be used exclusively in the ninth inning. He's earned trust in high-leverage situations by posting a 1.82 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 67:24 K:BB over 49.1 innings during his rookie campaign.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Blows save, takes loss

    Diaz (4-2) blew the save and took the loss Tuesday in Philadelphia, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits and a walk while striking out one in one-third of an inning.

    Diaz walked the first batter and then gave up a run-scoring double to Bryson Stott to tie the game. After a strikeout, Nick Maton singled home Stott to end it. Tuesday marked the first time Diaz allowed a run in nine outings in August. Since returning from a biceps injury at the beginning of July, he's compiled a 1.00 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 29:7 K:BB in 18 innings.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Notches five-out save

    Diaz allowed one hit and struck out four batters over 1.2 innings while earning a save over the Cubs on Sunday.

    Diaz took the mound with the bases jammed in the eighth inning and promptly struck out the next two batters to escape the jam. He then worked out of another one-out threat in the ninth to pick up his fifth save of the year. The right-handed rookie lowered his season ERA to 1.83 with a 60:22 K:BB through 44.1 innings. Diaz has given up just one run over his last 16 appearances.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Notches fourth save

    Diaz struck out one in two-thirds of an inning without allowing a run to record his fourth save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Hunter Strickland got the save the night before but gave up a run doing it, so Diaz got the call Tuesday after Graham Ashcraft served up a one-out double in the ninth. Diaz has been tagged for only one earned run in his last 12 appearances, posting a 0.84 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB through 10.2 innings over that stretch. Edwin's little brother could wrest the closer role away from Strickland down the stretch if he continues outperforming him.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Bags save in come-from-behind win

    Diaz claimed a save in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday in the Reds' 4-3 win over the Yankees. He issued a walk and recorded a strikeout in the 13-pitch appearance.

    Though Hunter Strickland was available after he hadn't worked since Saturday, he was bypassed for the save chance after squandering his most recent chance June 6. Manager David Bell instead turned to Diaz, who retired three of the four batters he faced to close out the come-from-behind win after the Reds plated four of their runs in the top of the ninth. While Diaz possesses the best skills of any pitcher in the Cincinnati bullpen, Bell's reluctance to commit to a full-time closer since Raisel Iglesias was traded to the Angels following the 2020 season suggests that Diaz and Strickland may continue to share the ninth-inning role.
