Player Outlook
Aside from a career-worst 13.0% walk rate, Josh Hader was back to his otherwise dominant ways, tallying 33 of the Padres' 36 total saves for a 91.7% team save share that was second-highest among closers. His 36.8% strikeout rate was fifth-best among qualified relievers thanks to a devastating slider (51.7% whiff rate, .100 BAA) and upper-90's sinker (73.4% pitch usage) that kept hitters off-balance. The southpaw went three months last summer without permitting an earned run, spanning 26 appearances and 23.2 innings. The five-time All-Star is showing no signs of slowing down as he enters his age-30 season. Hader ended up with the Astros in free agency on a five-year, $95 million deal, which presumably moves Ryan Pressly into a setup role. The lefty should remain among the top-five closers off the board in drafts.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Charged with loss

    Hader (3-4) took the loss Sunday against the Angels after allowing two runs on two hits while striking out a batter over two-thirds of an inning.

He then returned for the ninth to try and preserve a 7-7 tie and was unable to do so.

It was Hader's first time allowing multiple runs in an outing since April 15 and his first loss since May 5. It's now been a full week since Hader's picked up his last save, and he sits at nine for the year after tallying 30-plus in each of his last four full seasons.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Secures win with elite performance

    Hader (3-3) earned the win over the Angels in 10 innings on Tuesday, pitching two perfect innings while striking out four.

Over his last 11 games, Hader has a 1.26 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 24:5 K:BB in 14.1 innings, which equates to a 44.4 strikeout rate.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Picks up save Friday

    Hader struck out one batter in a perfect inning and earned the save over the Brewers on Friday. Hader made quick work of the Brewers, needing just 12 pitches to snag his sixth save of the year. After a disastrous start to his Astros career -- a 9.39 ERA with one save through nine appearances -- Hader has seemingly settled in with his new team.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Collects win Tuesday

    Hader (2-3) allowed a walk and struck out three over two scoreless and hitless innings to earn the extra-inning win over the Athletics on Tuesday. After starter Ronel Blanco was ejected for the alleged use of a foreign substance, this became a bit of a bullpen game for the Astros as they looked to protect a 1-0 lead. Ryan Pressly couldn't maintain the lead in the eighth inning, but Hader pitched well in the ninth and 10th, and he got the win after Victor Caratini delivered a walk-off hit as a pinch hitter. Hader's active 4.1-inning scoreless streak is his longest of the season. He's now at a 4.74 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 30:9 K:BB with five saves in six chances over 19 innings this season.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Notches fifth save

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Records four-out save

    Hader earned a save against the Yankees on Thursday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter over 1.1 scoreless innings. Hader was called upon with two outs and a runner on first with Houston protecting a one-run lead in the bottom of the eighth inning. He got Anthony Rizzo to pop out to end the frame, then completed the save with a scoreless ninth despite allowing a leadoff single. It was just the second time this season Hader was asked to get more than three outs, though he kept his workload relatively light by throwing 14 of his 18 pitches for strikes. The veteran closer's 5.63 ERA so far is well below his career standard, but he has converted four of his five save chances and has 25 punchouts over 16 frames.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Takes loss against Mariners

    Hader (1-3) allowed a solo home run and struck out one to take the loss Sunday against the Mariners. Hader entered the game in the ninth inning with the score tied 4-4.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Lands six-out win

    Hader (1-2) earned the win Tuesday, allowing one unearned run on one hit and one walk with four strikeouts over two innings against the Guardians. Hader surrendered a double to David Fry in the 10th inning that plated designated runner Josh Naylor as the go-ahead run. Still, Hader ended up with his first victory of the campaign following a Victor Caratini walk-off homer in the home half of the frame. After a bounce-back 2023 season, Hader looks to have regressed to his poor 2022 form (5.22 ERA across 56 appearances), producing a 6.39 ERA across the first 12.2 innings of his Astros tenure.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Escapes with second save

    Hader gave up a run on two hits and a walk in the ninth inning Friday, recording his second save of the season in a 4-2 win over the Nationals. He struck out two. It was another bumpy outing for the left-hander, but after CJ Abrams came around to score following a leadoff triple, Hader was able to strike out Joey Meneses and Nick Senzel with runners on first and second to end the threat. Hader's been tagged for runs in five of his 11 appearances to begin the season, and his control and command both seem to be lacking so far. He carries an 8.38 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB through 9.2 innings, but the strikeouts at least are a sign that he should turn things around.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Blows first save chance in Houston

    Hader (0-2) blew the save and took the loss Tuesday against the Blue Jays, allowing two runs on two hits in one inning. Heading into the ninth with a 1-0 lead, Hader had Toronto down to its final out with the bases empty. However, Justin Turner drew a two-out walk before Davis Schneider launched a two-run homer, saddling Hader with a blown save en route to his second loss this season. The 29-year-old left-hander has allowed three runs on four hits and two walks through his first four innings this season, but while it's been a rough start to his tenure in Houston, Hader figures to have a firm grasp on the Astros' closing job after racking up 33 saves with a 1.28 ERA over 56.1 innings with the Padres last year.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Unavailable Monday

    Astros manager Joe Espada said that Hader is unavailable for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports. Hader pitched in three of the four games against the Yankees in the Astros' opening series. He took the loss in the third contest after giving up one run on two hits while striking out two in one inning. With Bryan Abreu also unavailable Monday, the Astros will likely turn to Ryan Pressly to fill in as the closer if necessary.
