Kelvin Herrera earned his first save of the season Saturday, pitching a perfect ninth inning to preserve a 5-3 win over the Mariners.
Herrera needed nine pitches to do away with the M's, a much better showing than his last time out, when he took the loss while allowing two runs to the Jays. Herrera will continue to get save chances while Wade Davis is on the shelf, but Davis is progressing well and may not afford the 26-year-old much time in his seat before retaking it for himself. Herrera is an elite setup man and would be a must-own if Davis did ever miss substantial time, posting a 1.77 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 52/7 K/BB ratio over 40 2/3 innings in the first half.
