Glen Perkins registered his 18th save after pitching a scoreless ninth inning in a 4-2 victory over the White Sox.
After being unavailable due to flu-like symptoms the last time the Twins needed his services, Perkins was available Thursday and got the job done. He has now converted 18 of his first 20 save opportunities in 2014 while sitting on a 2.67 ERA and 0.99 WHIP through 30.1 innings. Although having a left-handed closer is not ideal in the least, he has managed to get the job done at a high rate, making him one of the more reliable fantasy options at a very unreliable position.

Mo Williams (knee) will play Friday against the Wizards.
As he has been playing through this knee issue, Williams' shooting percentage has been dreadfully low (23-percent). Considering this, do exactly what the Hornets are doing: play him with caution. Williams is a tealented guard, but be reasonable with your expectations, as he has struggled with his shot while dealing with the injury. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Brad Miller not in the Mariners lineup Friday because of an illness.
Considering Miller committed an atrocious 18 errors in a mere 107 games last season, one would be led to believe that he has the plate presence of Tony Gwynn in order to hold down the Mariners starting shortstop position, however that is not at all the case, as Miller hit a lowly .221, with 10 homers, 36 RBI, and boasted an inexcuseable .288 OBP in 2014. Stay away from him in drafts. Analysis: Dom Murtha
