David Robertson registered his 26th save of the season after tossing a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts against the Blue Jays on Friday.
Robertson continued his ninth inning dominance on Friday night, converting his 26 save in 28 opportunities in 2014. He is now the proud owner of a 2.33 ERA and 0.96 WHIP through 38.2 innings while maintaining a 67:11 K:BB rate which is just remarkable. Having now been used back-to-back days expect Robertson to be avoided at all costs in Saturday's matchup against the Blue Jays. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
