Transaction and Schedule Notes



Yesterday’s Performances


CHC 3 – NYY 6

SV: Michael King (6)

  • Michael King finished off the final five outs as the Yankees beat the Cubs yesterday. He needed just 16 pitches to do so, so he could still be available today, although we should expect Clay Holmes to pitch today in some capacity as well.


TOR 0 – DET 2

H: Jason Foley (14)

SV: Alex Lange (13)

  • Alex Lange pitched a perfect ninth to help finish off the Tigers’ stunning combined no-hitter against the Jays. He struck out one in the outing and should still be available today after throwing just 10 pitches.


STL 3 – CWS 0

H: Giovanny Gallegos (12)

SV: Jordan Hicks (7)


COL 3 – SF 5

H: Tyler Rogers (20)

SV: Camilo Doval (26)

  • Camilo Doval tossed a perfect ninth while adding two strikeouts for his 26th save of the season. He only threw 10 pitches in the game so the All-Star reliever should be available today.


PIT 2 – ARZ 3

L: David Bednar (1)

W: Scott McGough (1)

  • Scott McGough worked the ninth and the tenth in a tie game to earn the win for the Diamondbacks. He was in line for the loss after allowing a run in the tenth but wound up with the win as Arizona walked things off in the bottom half. After throwing 35 pitches, expect McGough to be off today with Andrew Chafin potentially getting a save chance.
  • David Bednar allowed two (unearned) runs in the bottom of the tenth for his first loss of the season. The error was a self-inflicted one as Bednar didn’t cover first on a groundball to the first baseman and also made a throwing error on a sacrifice bunt attempt.


PHI 3 – MIA 5

H: Huascar Brazoban (12), Steven Okert (10), Tanner Scott (18)

SV: A.J. Puk (15)

  • A.J. Puk bounced back after Friday’s blown save to close out the Phillies while allowing just 1 hit and striking out one. He and Tanner Scott will likely be off today, leaving Dylan Floro or Steven Okert in line for a potential save chance.


CIN 8 – MIL 5

H: Buck Farmer (9)

SV: Alexis Díaz (26)

  • Alexis Díaz allowed one hit and struck out two while closing out the Brewers for his league-leading 26th save of the season. He needed 19 pitches to shut the door here and should be available for Sunday’s contest.


SEA 2 – HOU 3

SV: Ryan Pressly (20)

  • All-Star snub Ryan Pressly picked up his 20th save of the season against the Mariners after Martín Maldonado hit a go-ahead HR off Andrés Muñoz (is this the most unlikely home run of the season?) in the bottom of the 8th inning. Pressly should be ready to go today after needing just 18 pitches yesterday.


NYM 1 – SDP 3

H: Luis García (9), Nick Martinez (11)

SV: Josh Hader (21)

  • Josh Hader closed out the Mets yesterday, allowing a hit and striking out two while preserving a two-run lead. He should be available again today after needing to throw just 19 pitches in this one.
