John Axford believes fatigue is the reason for his recent struggles.

Over five appearances in May, Axford is 1-2 with just one save (in two chances), an 11.25 ERA, a 3.00 WHIP, and dismal 6:6 K:BB in four innings. If it's fatigue, then he should end up with his job back shortly, but for the time being it looks like it'll be a committee approach in Cleveland with Cody Allen, Scott Atchison, Marc Rzepczynski, and Bryan Shaw all getting looks in the ninth.ANALYST: Howard Bender
