Robertson allowed one hit and struck out one on his way to his tenth save of the season in the White Sox win over Houston on Friday night,

After blowing a couple of saves earlier in the week, he was given Thursday off and looked refreshed in this one as he closed down the Astros on just 12 pitches (nine for strikes). He remains firmly entrenched in the closer's role.

Robertson is not expected to be used during Thursday's doubleheader, the Chicago Tribune's Paul Sullivan reports.

He pitched two innings Wednesday and was also used Tuesday, totaling 48 pitches over the last two days. Robertson also logged his second and third blown saves of the season in those two games, giving up long balls in each game. His 2.61 ERA and 0.87 WHIP paired with 31 strikeouts in 20.2 innings still places him among the best closers in fantasy, but do not expect him get a chance in either of Thursday's games. It's difficult to peg who would get the save chance if one arises Thursday, but Zach Putnam, Zach Duke and Jake Petricka could all be considered based on matchups.

Robertson (4-1) blew a save against Josh Donaldson and the Blue Jays for the second straight day Wednesday, giving up a ninth-inning, game-tying solo homer, but he ended up with the win.

Robertson stayed in for a second inning and benefited from some offensive support to gain the victory, but the White Sox still can't be happy to see him give up four runs in two days. Still, Robertson's been one of the best closers in the majors, and he doesn't have to deal with Donaldson and Co. again until July.

Robertson took his first loss of the season Tuesday as he allowed a game-ending three-run home run to Josh Donaldson.

Robertson easily picked up the final out of the eighth inning in a tough situation, but all went by the wayside when he came on for the ninth. Josh Thole and Jose Reyes led off the inning with hard-hit balls, and then Josh Donaldson took him deep to right on an outside fastball. The home run ballooned Robertson's ERA from 0.98 to 2.41. There should not be too much cause for concern here - Robertson still has an absurd 29:2 K:BB in under 20 innings, and his hold on the White Sox's closer role is unquestioned.

Robertson came on in the eighth inning to make a four-out save in the 4-3 win over Oakland on Saturday.

Robertson was perfect in the outing allowing no baserunners, but failed to record a strikeout. After a day off on Friday, Robertson was right back to it grabbing his eighth save of the season Saturday.

Robertson was not used in a save situation Friday because manager Robin Ventura wanted to provide him with rest, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Robertson had pitched four times in the last seven days, including a 27-pitch effort Friday, so Ventura went with Zach Duke for the four-out save. Robertson has been phenomenal this season, despite the lack of save chances, with a 27:2 K:BB in 15 innings.

Robertson picked up his seventh save of the season Wednesday, striking out two and giving up a run in the ninth against the Brewers.

Robertson gave up a homer to Carlos Gomez and a walk to Adam Lind, but he got Martin Maldonado to line out and Hector Gomez to strike out swinging to pick up his seventh save in eight chances. The homer to Gomez was only the second run allowed by Robertson this season in 15 innings.

Robertson struck out two in a perfect ninth Tuesday against the Brewers to earn his sixth save of the season.

Robertson blew his first save of the season in his last appearance, so it was encouraging to see both the White Sox jump back on the horse rigth away, and for Robertson to deliver. The White Sox's lack of wins has resulted in few saves, but fantasy owners should delight in his 25:1 K:BB through 14 innings.

Robertson blew his first save of the season Sunday afer he allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits Sunday against the Reds.

The White Sox scored in the bottom half of the inning to give Robertson his third win of the season. Robertson dug himself into a hole by allowing back-to-back singles to begin the inning, and then catcher Geovany Soto widened that hole with a passed ball. Robertson stopped the bleeding with back-to-back strikeouts to Billy Hamilton and Marlon Byrd. The runs he allowed were the first he had allowed all year, so there is not much to worry about here. Robertson's role is very secure, and he should earn saves more rapidly if the White Sox are able to turn around their season.

Robertson allowed two hits to the Tigers on Wednesday, but he still managed a scoreless ninth to earn his fifth save of the season.

The 11-pitch effort marked Robertson's second save in as many days. It was his first time closing on consecutive days, which was a result of the White Sox's struggles this season rather than Robertson not being up to it. He has yet to allow a run through 11 innings this season, and he has not walked a batter since April 9.
