Luis Garcia earned his first save of the season on Friday after he pitched two scoreless innings against the Diamondbacks.
Jonathan Papelbon was simply getting a day off. Garcia stepped up in the 4-3 win and struck out two while allowing one hit over two innings. Over 18 innings, Garcia holds a 3.50 ERA and a 14/11 K/BB ratio. Garcia occasionally scoops up holds, but he doesn't have any real fantasy value. Fri, May 15, 2015 10:42:00 PM
