Schedule Notes

  • Only BOS, MIA, KC, LAA, CHC, and SD have games scheduled Monday, so most teams will have a day of rest for their bullpens coming up.



Yesterday’s Performances

  • Mark Melancon added to his major league-leading save total with his 19th on the season, pitching around two hits and striking out three to close out the Padres’ victory over the Mets Friday. That marks the second straight day of usage for Melancon, making way for a possible Emilio Pagán sighting in the final inning of Saturday’s matchup.
  • Tyler Rogers picked up his seventh save of the year, with lefty Jake McGee playing set up man in the eighth. Both relievers pitched a perfect inning but each failed to record any strikeouts through their appearance. Neither pitcher needed more than 16 pitches to get through their outing, so expect both to be available Saturday and used as the matchups dictate.


  • Raisel Iglesias picked up his 10th save of the season for the Angels, collecting the final six outs of the contest, four of which coming by way of strikeout. Iglesias hadn’t pitched previously since Sunday, so he was fully rested and then some for the extended outing. He may see some rest Saturday after throwing 28 pitches through his two innings of work Friday.
  • Jake Diekman threw 23 pitches as he finished off the final inning for Oakland’s four-run victory in Colorado. Lou Trivino hasn’t pitched Monday and should be expected to close out Saturday’s matchup.


  • As suggested, Sean Doolittle was given the chance to close out the game for the Reds, being sent out to the mound in the ninth with just one out to get after relieving Heath Hembree who had recorded the previous three outs of the game. Doolittle failed to record the out, walking the first batter he faced and allowing back-to-back hits to Tommy Edman and Jesse Winker, allowing two to score in the process. Michael Feliz was brought in to do what Doolittle could not and he struck out Paul Goldschmidt on three pitches to end the game and record his first save of his career.
  • Liam Hendriks came in to throw just two pitches to collect the final out of the top of the ninth inning. Thanks to a walk-off single by Yermín Mercedes, Hendriks walked away with his second win of the season for his trouble.


  • Ian Kennedy recorded his 12th save of the season despite allowing two earned runs off two hits and a walk in the final inning of the Rangers’ victory over the Rays Friday. Kennedy needed 30 pitches to get through the outing and should be expected to be given a day of rest on Saturday. Look for Josh Sborz or lefty Joely Rodríguez to get the ball in the ninth depending on matchups.
  • Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless ninth inning for the Dodgers Friday, but thanks to an insurance run scored in the top of the inning it was in a non-save situation. It’s possible the 26 pitch outing for Jansen forces Dave Roberts to look elsewhere in the final inning of Saturday’s matchup.


  • Chris Stratton recorded the final 11 outs for the Pirates, picking up his first save of the season, regardless of the seven-run victory.
  • Brad Hand picked up his 10th save of the year as he recorded the final out of the ballgame for the Nationals. Daniel Hudson pitched prior, collecting the previous three outs, allowing just one hit, and picking up two strikeouts.


  • Paul Fry recorded his second save of the season for the Orioles, pitching around two hits and punching one strikeout. Cole Sulser, who had recorded the last Baltimore save, walked away with the win on Friday after pitching a scoreless seventh inning.
  • Matt Barnes collected his 13th save of the year, striking out the side in his perfect ninth inning outing for the Red Sox.
