Bryan Shaw was called on to save Sunday's game against the Rays, pitching a scoreless ninth to preserve the Indians' 6-5 win.
With John Axford scuffling, Shaw converted his second save of the season with a perfect ninth inning. The right-hander owns a 1.45 ERA and 0.86 WHIP, and Axford's struggles have opened the door for him to receive more save chances going forward. Pay attention to who gets the call the next time the Indians have a save opportunity, but closer-needy owners should grab Shaw as a speculative add in all formats. May 11 - 7:04 PM

Bryan Shaw picked up his first save of the season in Tuesday's win over the Twins, allowing one unearned run in one inning of work.

Shaw got the save opportunity as closer John Axford had pitched in three consecutive days with poor results. Axford doesn't appear to have job insecurity at the moment, but that could change with a couple more shaky outings. In that case, Shaw and Cody Allen would be the top candidates for save chances. Shaw allowed the one run as a result of Asdrubal Cabrera's fielding error with two outs in the ninth, prolonging the game. It was followed up by an Eduardo Escobar RBI double.
