  • Astros' Josh Hader: Crumbles in ninth

    Hader yielded four runs on four hits and a walk in Monday's loss to Atlanta. He recorded one out via strikeout.

    Hader entered the game in a non-save situation with Atlanta leading 2-1. He put five straight runners on base and threw a wild pitch, resulting in four runs to be charged against him. The All-Star closer has not yet found any consistency in his first season with Houston; Hader has just one save with a 9.39 ERA through 7.2 frames.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Secures first save

    Hader allowed a run on one hit and a walk in one inning Sunday and earned a save over Texas.

    After walking Adolis Garcia, Hader moved him up to second base with a wild pitch and eventually saw him score on a Justin Foscue single. Despite the struggles, Hader finished off the 3-1 win and earned his first save as an Astro. He's coughed up four runs over his last three innings, bumping his ERA up to 7.20 through five appearances.

  • 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.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Takes loss against Yankees

    Hader (0-1) took the loss against the Yankees on Sunday, yielding one run on two hits and no walks during one inning. He struck out two.

    Hader took the mound in the ninth during a 3-3 tie but was unable to get through the inning unscathed. He surrendered back-to-back singles to Gleyber Torres and Juan Soto, with Soto's knock plating Torres after Torres stole second. Sunday's outing was Hader's first blemish of 2024 after giving up no hits and fanning five in his first two appearances covering two innings.

  • Astros' Josh Hader: Officially named Houston closer

    Astros manager Joe Espada said Wednesday that Hader will be the team's closer this season, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    There didn't seem to be much doubt after Hader signed a five-year, $95 million contract last month, but Espada made it official after speaking to both Hader and Ryan Pressly on Tuesday. Pressly could net the occasional save on days when Hader is unavailable, but clearly his fantasy outlook takes a major hit. Hader collected a 1.28 ERA and 85:30 K:BB over 56.1 innings while recording 33 saves for the Padres in 2023.
