Addison Reed earned his 29th save of the season after he threw a perfect ninth inning against the Marlins on Friday.
Reed has had his fair share of issues in 2014, including with the long ball (10 HR allowed), but he has managed to hold onto the closing gig in the desert despite blowing five saves along the way. However, he has now converted nine consecutive save opportunities dating back to July 18, while continuing to support an above average strikeout rate (10.58 K/9). Even with a bloated earned-run average (3.79), Reed will continue to be a solid fantasy option down the stretch as long as he can keep his walks to a minimum (12 BB through 49.1 IP).ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the Royals 7-1 win over the Twins on Monday.
Morales is raking to start the season, hitting .358 with 12 runs, two home runs and nine RBI as the Royals everyday DH and cleanup hitter. 2014 was a lost year for Morales as he struggled to find a role with the Mariners and Twins but he showed capable of being a productive player over the two seasons prior where he hits a combined 45 home runs over the two years. Morales was one of the more promising offensive players in the league before a devastating ankle injury nearly ended his career in 2010 but if his hot start is any indication of things to come those who took a chance on Kendrys could be in for a solid season.
