Fernando Rodney tossed a scoreless 10th inning Friday against the Brewers for his 13th save of the season.

Asked to hold a two-run lead, Rodney worked around a two-out single from Hernan Perez to secure the victory. The 40-year-old appeared on the verge of losing his closer job at the end of April, but he has allowed just two hits and three walks over 8 2/3 scoreless innings this month. He still holds an ugly 6.75 ERA, but he's second in the NL in saves.

Corey Knebel blew a save Friday against the Diamondbacks after giving up a game-tying solo homer to Chris Iannetta.

Entering the top of the ninth inning with a 2-1 lead, Knebel retired the first two batters he faced before Iannetta took him deep. The Diamondbacks won the game in the 10th. This was Knebel’s second blown save of the season, but his first since officially taking over the closer job earlier this month. There’s no need for concern here. Knebel’s control can be shaky at times, but he continues to miss bats in bunches.

Zack Godley spun six scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Friday.

Yet another strong outing from Godley, who gave up five hits and walked one while striking out six. He exited the game in position for the victory, but the Brewers took the lead against the bullpen before the Diamondbacks tied things up in the ninth and won in the 10th. Godley has compiled a 1.99 ERA through five starts with a 26/11 K/BB ratio in 31 2/3 innings. He has issued just two walks in 13 innings across his last two starts and continues to build momentum as a fantasy option.

Junior Guerra was strong in his return from the disabled list Friday, giving up one run over 5 2/3 innings against the Diamondbacks.

Out since Opening Day with a calf strain, Guerra gave up three hits and three walks in his return, with the only run scoring when Jake Lamb took him deep in the third inning. He struck out five and induced 15 swinging strikes in his 98 pitches. The 32-year-old surprised with a 2.81 ERA in 20 starts last season and while we’re not expecting a repeat, he’s capable of being a factor in mixed leagues.
May 27 - 12:31 AM

Hernan Perez went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in Friday’s extra-inning loss to the Diamondbacks.

Perez made the start in left field and batted third with Ryan Braun (calf) back on the disabled list. The 26-year-old was a valuable piece in fantasy leagues last year and is batting .274/.314/.479 with five home runs, 19 RBI, two steals, and 20 runs scored through 42 games this season. He’s in a great situation in this lineup, so he’s worth considering in mixed fantasy leagues as long as the playing time is there.
May 27 - 12:31 AM

Dan Straily yielded three runs over 5 1/3 innings in an 8-5 win over the Angels on Friday.

Straily was pulled after giving up a two-run homer to Martin Maldonado in the sixth inning. He struck out six and walked a pair for his second straight victory and now sits at 3-3 with a 3.83 ERA and 54/24 K/BB ratio in 54 innings across 10 starts. He has an appealing matchup against the Phillies up next.

Jesse Chavez was knocked around for five runs over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Marlins on Friday.

It was his shortest start of the season. Chavez gave up eight hits, including a long two-run homer to Giancarlo Stanton and a solo blast to J.T. Realmuto. He has now allowed 13 home runs in just 58 1/3 innings this season to go along with a 5.09 ERA. His fantasy appeal continues to be limited.
May 27 - 12:07 AM

A.J. Ramos needed just one pitch to covert his fifth save of the season Friday against the Angels.

Kyle Barraclough began the ninth inning with a five-run lead, but he gave up two runs before Marlins manager Don Mattingly brought in Ramos to face Mike Trout with one on and two out. He got Trout to fly out deep to center field to end the ballgame. Ramos was coming off a couple of shaky appearances in non-save situations, but he has converted all five of his save chances this season.
