UPDATES & NEWS
Matt Lindstrom picked up his sixth save with a scoreless ninth inning against the A's on Wednesday. He allowed one hit and one walk.
After allowing two earned runs in his previous appearance, Lindstrom was able to bounce back to earn his sixth save in nine tries on Wednesday night. Although the appearance wasn't pretty, he was able to work out of a jam to secure the win and to secure his job at least for the time being. Fantasy owners will want to continue rolling with him while in the closer role, but a turn around may be necessary if he wants to stay in the closer role long term. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
