FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Glen Perkins locked down the save after pitching a perfect ninth inning striking out one batter in Tuesday's win over the Padres. 

The Twins closer is now 13-for-15 in save chances in 2014 and has now pitched three straight scoreless innings after getting blown up last Thursday. He is now sporting a 3.38 ERA and 1.03 WHIP through his first 21.1 innings while holding down a 30:3 K:BB rate. It is safe to say he is one of the top closer options in the American League moving forward. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
