Keep Something At Bay

Preventing something unpleasant from coming too near to you for fear that it will harm you.

For Example:

If a coach was asked why he doesn’t play a particular player very often, he might say, “I’m keeping him at bay, I think it’s in the best interests of the team to do so.”
