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.
