Glen Perkins earned his 15th save despite allowing one run on two walks and a strikeout against the Brewers on Tuesday.
Despite allowing one run in the ninth inning, Perkins was able to work out of a jam to secure the twins victory. He is now 15-for-17 in save opportunities on the season while owning a 34:5 K:BB rate through 25.1 innings pitched, which makes him one of the better closers to own now in the third month of the season.

Chad Smith has arrived in camp on Saturday.
Smith was just claimed off waivers from the Tigers on Thursday so he had a couple of days to get his things and head to the A's spring training facility. He's a long shot to make the 25-man roster, but if he can continue to post similar strikeout and walk rates that he did in Double and Triple-A last year, he could get a call-up at some point.
