Glen Perkins gave up two hits but was able to get out of the inning to pick up his 28th save of the season against the Padres on Tuesday night.
Perkins has been on a great run of late, with his last blown-save coming back on June 20, giving him a run of recording 10 straight saves. He is now sitting on a 2.66 ERA and 1.14 WHIP through 47.1 innings while owning an impressive 57:8 K:BB rate in that stretch. As long as he continues to limit his free passes there is really nothing to worry about as far as his production is concerned the rest of the way.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Kyle Schwarber was reassigned to minor league camp.
A top pick in the 2014 draft, Schwarber is a great hitter who's biggest question mark is what position he will play. The stick is ahead of the glove, so the Cubs may chose to speed up his ETA and stick him in the outfield. In that case, he could be MLB ready in 2016 and fantasy relevant soon after that.
