Notches second straight save
PLos Angeles Angels
September 22, 2020
Mayers earned the save against San Diego on Tuesday, pitching 1.2 scoreless innings in which he gave up one hit and one walk while striking out two.
ANALYSIS
Mayers was brought in to protect a two-run lead with the tying run at the plate in the eighth inning and retired two of the three batters he faced to keep the Padres off the scoreboard. He then allowed a leadoff single in the ninth before inducing a double-play groundout and a strikeout to close out the win. It was the second straight multi-inning save for Mayers, who had been used primarily in a setup role prior to this week. He has not allowed a run in nearly a month and has posted a minuscule 0.35 ERA over his last 24 appearances covering 26 innings.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Mayers put together a modest 3.73 ERA and 1.32 WHP over 16 starts at Triple-A Memphis in 2016, but there is little reason to think he'll be used as a starter in the big leagues. He stumbled in his brief taste with St. Louis, allowing a whopping 16 runs over 5.1 innings spread across four treacherous outings, three of which came in September after rosters expanded. Coming off that brutal display, the odds are stacked against Mayers starting the season in the majors, let alone making his way up before the All-Star break. While in the minors, Mayers will look to improve his control, which has hindered his performance at every level. Between Double-A Springfield and Triple-A Memphis in 2016, Mayers logged a 3.0 BB/9.
