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
Hector Sanchez left Thursday's game after taking a foul tip to the neck.
We should get a better idea on Friday if this injury is serious or not, but even a brief absence could set Sanchez back in his roster battle with Andrew Susac. Susac is younger, and a better hitter and he could be useful in NL-only or if the Giants decide to play Buster Posey more at first base. Sanchez will never have much fantasy value regardless of role though he would probably be better for San Francisco's pitchers. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Ross Ohlendorf left Thursday's game with tightness in his right groin.
This isn't good news for Ohlendorf, especially after he's pitched so well this spring. Given his success, it seems as though the only way that he will be left off of the Rangers' Opening Day roster is if he is out for an extended period of time or has a setback. He will likely fill a long reliever role for Texas with the chance to make an occasional spot start. Analysis: David Kerr
