Ottavino got the save against the Mets on Sunday, working around a hit and a walk and getting three strikeouts to lock down Colorado's 3-2 victory.

EDGE Analysis

Filling in for Wade Davis, Ottavino bagged his first save of the year by throwing a clean ninth inning despite allowing a couple of baserunners. Davis is leading the National League in saves with 13, so the job is his in Colorado but Ottavino has been absolutely lights-out this year with a 0.47 ERA, a 0.58 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in just 19 innings. If he continues to post numbers like that, he would carry fantasy value as a source of strikeouts and a ratio stabilizer even as the secondary option for ninth-inning duties.

Ottavino collected the win Thursday against the Padres after throwing two scoreless innings. He allowed a hit and struck out two in the outing.

EDGE Analysis

Ottavino looks like an entirely new pitcher so far this season. He struck out the side in his first two appearances of the campaign and currently has a 10:1 K:BB in five innings pitched. Granted, the sample size is pretty small. However, he typically has solid ratios when he's healthy, and this early showing makes it seem as if he's firing on all cylinders right now.

Ottavino has allowed one run on five hits and four walks while striking out five across 6.1 innings this spring.

EDGE Analysis

Ottavino is off to a solid start start in March and will hope to have a bounce back season in 2018 after a disappointing 2017 campaign. He accrued a 5.06 ERA across 53.1 innings while giving up 39 walks a season ago. Ottavino should find himself in plenty of high-leverage situations to start the year, with the chance to earn more key innings if he performs well early on.

Ottavino has an ERA of 5.40 over 50 innings this season with the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Ottavino hasn't seen much action lately, and with his sky-high ERA it's not hard to see why. He has consistently struggled this season, and of late he has given up eight runs in his last 10 innings pitched. The Rockies have been using him mostly in low to medium-leverage situations (41.2 of his 50 innings), and it's hard to imagine the 31-year-old throwing many key innings down the stretch.

Ottavino is sporting a 6.00 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP in 30 innings pitched this season.

EDGE Analysis

The 31-year-old right-hander had previously been one of the Rockies' top relievers prior to injuring his shoulder at the end of May, but the wheels have since come off. He's allowed runs in five of his past six outings, and his ERA since returning from the disabled list on June 9 sits at a lofty 14.00. He does have 15 strikeouts in that same nine-inning span and seems to be holding onto his role as a high-leverage reliever for Colorado, but his days acting as the setup man to Greg Holland may be numbered if he can't right the ship soon.

Ottavino (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list Friday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander returns from a brief absence due to shoulder inflammation and will regain the top setup role most times to Greg Holland. Carlos Estevez was sent to Triple-A Albuquerque to create roster space. Ottavino holds a sparkling 2.57 ERA on the year with 24 strikeouts (albeit with 15 walks) in 21 innings this year.

Ottavino (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday against the Cubs, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ottavino said his shoulder felt great following his bullpen Wednesday, clearing the way for him to rejoin the big club before the weekend. He should reclaim his spot as a primary setup man for Colorado upon his return.

Ottavino is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday and could return to the Rockies' bullpen as early as Saturday against the Cubs, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ottavino also commented that his ailing shoulder feels great, which is a promising sign that he could return after a minimal DL stint. More information should come forth following Wednesday's outing, but the strikeout machine should be back in commission very soon and will likely regain his position as a primary setup man for Colorado.

Ottavino was placed on the 10-day DL on Tuesday with right shoulder inflammation.

EDGE Analysis

His 2.57 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 21 innings look nice, but his 1.43 WHIP and 16.5 percent walk rate are more troubling. He should be considered out indefinitely. Carlos Estevez was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque as a corresponding move.

Ottavino gave up a pair of runs on two hits and a walk in one-third of an inning Sunday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Owners who hold stock in Greg Holland were likely happy that this outing led to a save chance for Holland, but anyone speculatively hanging onto Ottavino have been hung out to dry as of late. The setup man has allowed runs in three of his last four appearances while posting a 1:6 K:BB in that span. There is a silver lining, however: in leagues where holds count for something, Sunday's outing handed Ottavino his 12th hold of the year, putting him well on pace to demolish his career high in the holds department (21) that he put up in 2014.
