Glen Perkins earned his 26th save of the season despite allowing one run on two hits in the ninth innings of the Twins' 2-1 win over the Royals on Tuesday.
The run allowed was just the second for Perkins this month, a span of 12 appearances (12 innings). Her continues to be one off the more underrated closers out there, likely because he pitches for the Twins, and has maintained a solid 2.78 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP> Word has it that a number of teams have inquired about the availability of Perkins in a deal, but it doesn't appear that Minnesota is considering any of the offers.

Update: Carlos Peguero will be on Boston's major league roster.
With the Red Sox dealing with injuries in their outfield, they are going to give Peguero a chance. The Rangers cut ties with him after he struck out in just under 43-percent of the times he came to the plate in the first 30 games of the season. He is one of those guys who has incredible raw power, but he is boom-or-bust and is going to be a drain on your batting average. However, no playing time is guaranteed, so he should be left off most rosters. Analysis: Colby Conway
Colts signed first-round wide receiver Phillip Dorsett.
Dorsett is known for his excellent speed that he showcased while at the University of Miami. The Indy receiving core is pretty packed, so Dorsett’s expectations for his rookie year should be held in check. Last season for the Hurricanes, he caught 36 passes for 871 yards and 10 touchdowns. He would need an injury or two to become seriously fantasy relevant, seeing that he will be no higher than their number four receiver at the start of this season. Analysis: Colby Conway
