Glen Perkins picked up his fifth save of the season after tossing a perfect innings with two strikeouts against the Rays on Thursday.
Perkins has been lights out since allowing four runs through his first three appearances in the month of April having now registered seven straight scoreless trips to the mound. Not only has he not allowed an earned run since April 5, but he has given up only one hit and one walk in that span, which has really brought in numbers back down following a rough start (3.60 ERA w/ 1.00 WHIP). It is safe to say that Perkins is the real deal and will there is no reason to think he will be on the hot seat anytime soon.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Chris Carter went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros 6-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Carter has a six game hitting streak going which has helped raise his batting average from .157 to .185. Carter owners have to understand the type of player he is and know that while he has outstanding power there will be plenty of strikeouts and a low batting average. Those hoping for a repeat performance of 2014 should be reminded that he had 13 home runs and a .184 batting average heading into July before mashing 24 home runs over the final three months of the season.
