Francisco Rodriguez earned his major league-leading 37th save after tossing a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to close out the Brewers' 6-3 win over the Dodgers on Friday.
K-Rod needed just 11 pitches to cruise through the Dodgers lineup in the ninth inning and joined Royals closer Greg Holland for the league lead saves. He's now sitting on a 2.73 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP and an impressive 64:12 K:BB over 56 innings this season. Not too bad for a 32-year old waiver wire pick-up, amirite?ANALYST: Howard Bender
Michael Brantley (back) has returned to the Indians' lineup Sunday.
Brantley was out of the lineup as precaution and now seems to be 100 percent healthy. Brantley was one of the most improved players last season, which has greatly increased his fantasy value as some people are drafting him in the second or third round in fantasy drafts. He'll have to have another strong season in order to return value on that high of a draft pick. Analysis: Mark Kaplan
