Addison Reed registered his 27th save of the season after allowing one hit while striking out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning in Thursday's win over the Pirates.
Reed was able to collect his second save in as many days on Thursday, expect this time he did not allow a three-run home run in the final frame. He has now converted 27 of his first 32 save opportunities with his last blown-save coming back on July 8. Although his 3.15 ERA and 1.15 WHIP aren't the most appealing, the fact that he has just 12 walks over 44.1 innings while striking out 52 batters certainly makes him well worth a roster spot moving forward.

Ricky Rubio (ankle) is doubtful for Wednesday's game.
Rubio has played in just one game since March 13 and is likely to miss Wednesday's contest. His absence is crushing fantasy owners that were counting on him down the stretch for high assists totals. It's probable that Rubio will return at some point this year, though it is anyone's guess as to when. Analysis: David Kerr
Kevin Martin (hamstring) is questionable for Wednesday's game.
What started out as a day of rest for Martin last Monday has turned into five missed games. While he certainly can contribute for fantasy owners on most nights, we are at the point in the season, where we can play the waiting game. If there is a similar healthy option on your wire, it's probably a wise move to make the switch. Analysis: David Kerr
