Tony Watson earns second save Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Pirates pitcher Tony Watson picked up his second save Tuesday, giving up one hit and striking out one in his team's 3-2 win over the Braves.

With closer Mark Melancon pitching four times in a five-day stretch, the Pirates turned to Watson to slam the door in a close game Tuesday. He's tossed 16 1/3 scoreless innings since last surrendering a run. Watson owns a 1.44 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 78:15 K:BB ratio in 75 innings.


Tony Watson earns ninth win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Pirates pitcher Tony Watson picked up his ninth win Tuesday, giving up three hits but no earned runs while striking out three in two innings in his team's 5-2 victory over the Cardinals.

Watson (9-1) inherited two runners with no outs in the seventh, and he let both score to tie the game at 2-2. However, the offense was able to deliver a three-run home run in the eighth to send him home with a win. Watson owns a 1.75 ERA and 64:13 K:BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings.


Tony Watson earns All-Star bid with brilliant first half


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Pirates pitcher Tony Watson was named to his first All-Star game this season after going 5-1 with a 1.42 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 50:10 K:BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings in the first half.

The honored was well deserved for Watson, who has pitched more in the eighth inning with former closer Jason Grilli traded away. He needs just five strikeouts to top his career high, and his ERA is far below last year's career best mark of 2.39. Watson faced just one batter in the All-Star game and managed to record an out on the only pitch he threw.

Watson important in bullpen


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2012) Pittsburgh reliever Tony Watson has done well out of the bullpen this season, reports MLB.com on Sunday. Watson has made five consecutive scoreless appearances, including three innings of perfect baseball in the last two games against Arizona and getting a big out in a big spot against the Cardinals. "I have been impressed by Tony's demeanor," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "Tony has just taken [care of] business one day at a time. He prepares extremely well and is very conscientious in his preparation. He has self confidence and demands a lot of himself. He's another great guy as far as using eyes and ears. His stuff has been good and clean, and his confidence is in a very good place right now."
