Glen Perkins recorded his 27th save of the season after tossing a scoreless ninth inning allowing one hit while striking out one batter in Saturday's 8-6 win over the Twins.
Perkins continues to be a bright spot in a forgettable 2014 season for the Twins as he has now converted 27 of his 30 save opportunities following Friday's solid outing. Through 46.1 innings, Perkins is sitting on a 2.72 ERA and 1.12 WHIP while maintaining an impressive 57:8 K:BB rate. As long as he continues to limit his walks and career-best 11.07 K/9, he remains one of the best closers to own in the American League. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
