Glen Perkins picked up his 32nd save of the season after throwing a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout against the Indians on Thursday.

In what has become a lost season for the Twins, Perkins has been a standout, having now converted 32 of his 36 save chances while sitting on a 2.48 ERA and 1.07 WHIP through 54.1 innings. To add to his dominance, he owns a 64:9 K:BB rate while allowing just two home runs. He has now pitched two of the last three days, but has thrown just 29 pitches over through two innings so expect him to be available if a save situation was to arise on Friday.

Perkins has blown just one save since the All-Star break and continues to be an elite closer. He has struck out more than a batter per inning and has a stellar ERA and WHIP. He'll continue to be a top option the rest of the way.
