Jonathan Papelbon earned his 11th save with a scoreless ninth inning against the Mets on Saturday. He walked one and had one strikeout.
Papelbon continued his resurgence on Saturday having now gone 11-for-12 in save chances in the early going. He is now sitting on a 1.76 ERA and 0.98 WHIP through 15.1 innings of work, having yet to allow an earned run since April 2 (3 ER). The Phillies closer has now pitched back-to-back days so there is a chance he may get the day off on Sunday so plan accordingly. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Trevor Cahill has secured the final spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation.
With this news, it is confirmed that Daniel Hudson will start the season out of the team's bullpen. Cahill really struggled last season, but the team believes his revamped mechanics will equate to better success this season. In 17 starts and 14 relief appearances last year, he compiled a rough 5.61 ERA. Starters in Arizona will likely be back-end starters in many fantasy rotations this season. Analysis: Colby Conway
