How many saves does Arredondo have?
Oh sorry, ye that knows all. The answer is zero. That doesn't mean that Arredondo isn't better than Shields right now, which he is. Arredondo is short on experience but that is all. His stuff is dominant. His K rate is lower than Fuentes but his other peripherals are comparable if not better than Fuentes'. Again, Fuentes clearly has more experience. There are quite a few teams that would love to have Arredondo closing for them.
