June 16, 2013

Los Angeles Dodgers — Brandon League picked up the save in the 11th inning last night after Kenley Jansen blew the save in the 9th.  Even with the blown save, Mattingly is not thinking about making another change back to League.  No hierarchy change.

1. Carlos Marmol, Chicago Cubs – Kevin Gregg has pitched in four straight games
2. Carter Capps/Charlie Furbush, Seattle Mariners – Oliver Perez got the first save chance but with Eric Wedge playing match-ups in the 9th, Capps or Furbush could also see opportunities.
3. Francisco Rodriguez, Milwaukee Brewers – Ron Roenicke has said that he will try to give K-Rod the opportunity to reach 300 saves for his career.  He only needs 2 more.
