Vizcaino pitched a scoreless ninth inning to collect his 14th save of the season during Sunday's win over Miami.

EDGE Analysis

The hard throwing righty converted 14 of 16 saves for the campaign and posted a strong 2.83 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 10.0 K/9 through a career-high 57.1 innings. Vizcaino should open 2018 as the favorite to close out games for Atlanta, which positions him to be a serviceable relief option in all fantasy settings.

Vizcaino struck out all three batters he faced to collect his 13th save of the season during Saturday's win over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

There have been a few rough outings for Vizcaino since taking over the closer job, but he's now finished off 11 of his past 12 save opportunities and sports a 2.88 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 10.1 K/9 for the season. He's locked in as a must-own fantasy asset, and the hard-throwing righty should have a firm grasp on the closing role for the Braves to start the 2018 campaign.

Vizcaino struck out the side during a scoreless ninth inning to convert his 12th save of the season during Thursday's win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Vizcaino issued three bases-loaded walks in Wednesday's loss, so this was a strong bounce-back outing from the hard-throwing righty. The 26-year-old reliever now sports a 2.93 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 9.8 K/9 to go along with his 12 saves, and while Wednesday's poor showing is concerning, Vizcaino is locked in as the Atlanta closer. Saves are at a premium in September, too.

Vizcaino issued three bases-loaded walks in the eighth inning to blow his third save of the season in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

He threw only three of 15 pitches for strikes in an absolutely disastrous outing. He's now walked at least one batter in four straight appearances, and while Vizcaino could just be feeling fatigue after appearing in a career-high 59 games this season, his lengthy injury history raises the possibility that his sudden inability to find the plate might have a more serious cause.

Vizcaino worked around a walk to pitch a scoreless ninth for his 11th save Friday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Vizcaino hasn't blown a save since July 1 against Oakland. He has now thrown five straight scoreless appearances with five strikeouts and just four hits allowed over six innings. His ERA is down to a nifty 2.48.

Vizcaino gave up a pair of hits in a scoreless ninth inning en route to his 10th save Wednesday against Texas.

EDGE Analysis

After giving up runs in a pair of recent appearances, Vizcaino's delivered two straight scoreless outings now. Now finally the Braves' closer, he's looking to close out a strong 2017 on a positive note by racking up a few more successful conversions -- which would in turn solidify his status for next season.

Vizcaino gave up a run on one hit and struck out three in 1.1 innings of work to collect his ninth save of the season in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader sweep over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Jose Ramirez walked the bases loaded in the eighth inning, forcing Vizcaino to enter the game a bit early and strike out Cameron Rupp to end the threat, only for Hyun Soo Kim to triple with one out in the ninth and score on a sac fly. The righty's now been scored upon in consecutive appearances for the first time all season, but his 2.79 ERA and 9.9 K/9 suggest he should quickly right the ship.

Vizcaino allowed a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to collect his eighth save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander is a perfect 6-for-6 on save chances with a 0.00 ERA in August, racking up a 9:2 K:BB in 9.1 innings. Vizcaino has always had the raw stuff to be an effective closer, but he'll need to prove he can stay healthy -- not just for the rest of 2017, but well into 2018 -- before he can truly be considered a reliable source of saves.

Vizcaino pitched a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts to pick up his seventh save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Vizcaino needed just 10 pitches to retire the side Tuesday and pick up his fifth save of the month and seventh of the season. The 26-year-old should be in line for plenty more save opportunities moving forward, as the Braves have a very manageable schedule the rest of the way. Vizcaino has allowed just one hit and one walk in his last five appearances and has established himself as a reliable closing option since taking over the ninth-inning duties from Jim Johnson roughly two weeks ago.

Vizcaino picked up his sixth save of the season Sunday against the Cardinals, striking out one in a perfect ninth inning.

EDGE Analysis

Vizcaino converted his fourth straight save attempt in this one, further solidifying his spot atop the pecking order for the Braves' closing spot ahead of the recently ousted Jim Johnson. Those looking for help in the saves department would be wise to take a peek at Vizcaino if he's available on the wire.
