Top Gregory Soto News

  • Phillies' Gregory Soto: Receives $3.9 million for 2023

    Soto agreed to a one-year, $3.925 million contract with the Phillies on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    It's the first year of arbitration eligibility for Soto, and he'll receive a significant raise after he posted a 3.34 ERA with 48 saves while working as Detroit's closer for the past two seasons. The 27-year-old was acquired by the Phillies last weekend and is likely to see his save opportunities drop as a member of a closer committee that also features Craig Kimbrel and and Seranthony Dominguez.

  • Phillies' Gregory Soto: Bound for Philadelphia

    Soto and Kody Clemens were traded from the Tigers to the Phillies on Saturday in exchange for Nick Maton, Matt Vierling and Donny Sands, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    Soto saved 30 games for the Tigers last season, but he's unlikely to get anywhere close to that figure in a more crowded bullpen in Philadelphia. His underlying numbers didn't support his 3.28 ERA and didn't paint him as closer material, with his 4.21 SIERA coming in nearly a run higher. His 22.8 percent strikeout rate was merely average, while his 12.9 percent walk rate was worryingly high. He's likely to be merely one of a handful of late-inning options in Philadelphia this season, with his number of save chances likely to be determined in some part by whether or not his control takes a step forward.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Takes another loss in finale

    Soto (2-11) allowed an unearned run while retiring just one batter to take the loss Wednesday against the Mariners. He gave up one hit and two walks.

    Soto took the loss for the second night in a row, ending a mostly strong campaign on a sour note. The lefty finished with a whopping 11 losses, though he also had 30 saves in 33 opportunities, to go along with a 3.28 ERA and 60 strikeouts across 60.1 innings. Though he can be volatile at times, Soto should head into 2023 once again closing games for Detroit.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Blows save, loses

    Soto (2-10) blew the save and took the loss in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader in Seattle, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits in one-third of an inning in a 7-6 extra-inning loss.

    Soto entered the game in the 10th inning with the Tigers leading 6-5 and allowed two singles and a sacrifice fly as Seattle plated two runs to win the game. It was just his third blown save of the season and first since June 16. The lefty has a 2.08 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 15:7 K:BB in 13 innings since the beginning of September.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Nabs 30th save

    Soto pitched a clean ninth inning to earn the save in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Twins. He struck out two.

    Soto, who came into the season with 20 career MLB saves, is now up to 30 in 32 chances this year. The lefty has a solid 3.17 ERA as well, and he's been even better lately with a 0.93 ERA across his last 10 games. Soto should continue to be a strong fantasy asset in 2023, even if the team around him struggles to win a ton of games.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Records 29th save

    Soto pitched a clean ninth inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Royals. He struck out one.

    Soto cruised through the Royals on just 10 pitches to earn his 29th save of the season. After taking a loss back on Sept. 17, the lefty has rattled off four straight scoreless appearances, picking up a save in each of those games. Soto has established himself as a fairly reliable closer this year, and he should head into 2023 with the role locked up in Detroit.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Credited with 28th save

    Soto allowed a hit and no walks while failing to record a strikeout in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save during Sunday's win over the White Sox.

    Soto gave up two runs (one earned) in one inning against the White Sox on Sept. 17, but he's bounced back by converting saves in each of his last three outings. The southpaw has been among the most reliable closers in baseball this season, converting 28 of 30 save chances while posting a 3.32 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 57 innings over 59 appearances.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Secures 27th save

    Soto struck out one batter in a perfect ninth inning Saturday against the White Sox to earn his 27th save of the year.

    Clean innings haven't been as common as Soto would like this season, as he owns a 1.34 WHIP. He got the job done here against the first three hitters in the White Sox's lineup, however, helping the Tigers to a 5-3 victory.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Clean inning for 26th save

    Soto pitched a scoreless inning with one strikeout to pick up the save in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over the Orioles.

    Soto needed just 10 pitches to retire the Orioles in order and earn his 26th save of the season. After allowing a run and being tagged with the loss in his last outing, the clean inning was a good bounce back for the Detroit closer. He owns a 3.44 ERA through 55 innings this season but has surrendered 12 earned runs in 20.2 innings dating back to the beginning of August.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Strikes out side, earns save

    Soto worked around a hit and a walk to pitch a scoreless ninth inning and earn the save Wednesday against the Angels. He struck out three.

    Soto made things interesting, but he covered things up by striking out the side for just the second time this season. The lefty now has 25 saves, a 3.60 ERA and 52 strikeouts across 50 innings this year. Soto has had some ups and downs, though he's been locked in as Detroit's closer since Opening Day and should stay in that role the rest of the way.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Takes loss Sunday

    Soto (2-8) allowed a run on two hits and two walks to take the loss Sunday against the Royals. He struck out one.

    Coming on in the eighth inning of a 2-2 ballgame, Soto labored threw the frame on 21 pitches and ultimately allowed a run to score to take the loss. The lefty has struggled with a 9.00 ERA and 2.27 WHIP across his last 12 appearances. During that time, his K/9 has dropped to 7.4, compared to 9.0 for the season, and he's also walking a batter per inning. Soto will likely continue to struggle unless he can increase his strikeouts and limit the free passes.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Locks down save

    Soto allowed one hit and struck out three batters in a scoreless ninth inning to earn a save over the Royals on Friday.

    Soto coughed up a two-out single to Brent Rooker but worked around it with ease to finish a 5-4 win. The 27-year-old southpaw had given up four runs over his previous two outings, but his strong performance Friday gave him his first save since Aug. 20. Soto lowered his season ERA to 3.56 with a 48:25 K:BB and 24 saves through 48 innings.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Gets pulled early Sunday

    Soto allowed three runs on three hits and a walk while retiring just one batter before getting pulled in the ninth inning of Sunday's 9-8 win over the Rangers.

    Soto came on in a non-save situation with the Tigers up 9-5 heading into the ninth. He got the first batter he faced, but then followed that up with a walk and a wild pitch before allowing a double, a home run and a single. That was enough for Detroit manager A.J. Hinch, who turned to Joe Jimenez to close out the game. The lefty Soto has been mostly solid this year with a 2.96 ERA coming into Sunday, but the righty Jimenez has pitched well too and could see more save opportunities moving forward depending on matchups.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Secures 23rd save

    Soto earned the save against the Angels on Saturday, allowing one walk in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Soto took the mound with Detroit up by a run in the final frame. He issued a one-out walk to Kurt Suzuki but quickly rebounded by inducing a double play to close out the save. Soto has racked up three saves in the past six days and ranks 10th in the majors with 23 successful conversions on the campaign.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Records another save Tuesday

    Soto worked around a hit to pitch a scoreless ninth inning and earn the save in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Guardians. He struck out one.

    After allowing six earned runs over his previous four appearances, it looked like Soto was in for another rough outing when he allowed a leadoff double in the ninth. The Guardians advanced the runner with a bunt, but Soto dug in to get a strikeout and groundout to end the game. It was the second save in as many days for the lefty and his 22nd of the season. Soto also has a strong 3.16 ERA and 42 strikeouts across 42.2 innings this year.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Earns shaky save Monday

    Soto allowed a run on two hits but was able to secure the save in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Guardians, a 7-5 Detroit win.

    For the second straight outing and third time in his last four appearances, Soto allowed at least one run, but the lefty was still able to record his 21st save of the season in 23 chances. Soto has a 5.23 ERA over his last 10 games and he's seen his season ERA creep up to 3.24. He should stick in the closer role for Detroit moving forward, but he is showing some cracks in the armor and might be a volatile fantasy asset the rest of the year.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Takes loss Thursday

    Soto (2-7) allowed an unearned run on one hit across an inning of work to take the loss in Thursday's extra-inning contest against the Guardians.

    Soto worked the top of the 10th inning, which meant dealing with the automatic runner on second base, and he allowed the runner to score on a two-out single by Oscar Gonzalez. The Detroit closer has taken losses in two of his last three appearances, though he's in no real danger of losing his job at this point with a 3.10 ERA and 20 saves in 22 chances this season.
