Blake Parker back in the saddle for the Angels

June 5, 2018

Los Angeles Angels – The Angels went back to Blake Parker for the save chance last night, as was mostly expected, and he converted his fourth save with a scoreless inning. After a brutal spring training and a shaky start to the year, Parker has found his form, having allowed just 2 ER in his last 15.2 IP. Look for him to continue to lead this committee, and potentially win the job outright with a few more conversions.

Hierarchy remains: *Parker | Anderson | Johnson.
* = closer-by-committee

New York Mets – Anthony Swarzak will be activated from the disabled list today, giving the Mets a badly needed late inning option. Look for him to enter the mix for holds relatively quickly.

Updated hierarchy: Familia | Gsellman | Swarzak.

1. Alex Colome – Edwin Diaz has pitched on 9 of the last 14 days, and after pitching Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, he would benefit from a second straight day off. Alternatively, if he goes tonight, look for him to get the day off tomorrow.
