Los Angeles Angels – We knew Ty Buttrey wouldn’t pitch on Sunday, but we didn’t predict that veteran Matt Andriese would throw the final two innings, nabbing his second save in as many nights. After a brutal August, Andriese has allowed just 1 hit in 5.2 innings in September.
Hierarchy remains: *Buttrey | Pena | Mayers.
* = closer-by-committee
VULTURE SAVE WATCH
1. Nate Jones/Amir Garrett – Raisel Iglesias and Archie Bradley both pitched 2 innings yesterday and the Reds have a doubleheader.
2. Blake Treinen – Kenley Jansen has gone back to back.
3. Yohan Ramirez – Yoshihisa Hirano has gone back to back and the Mariners have a doubleheader today.
1. Evan Marshall – If Alex Colome goes today, it’ll be back to back and three of four.
