Tony Watson tossed a pair of scoreless innings for his first save of the season in Wednesday's win versus the Cubs.
Jared Hughes got into some eighth-inning trouble, allowing the Cubs to stage a rally, but Watson came in and put out the fire. After allowing an inherited runner to score on a fielder's choice, the lefty got Jonathan Herrera to foul out and Addison Russell to line out to end the frame. In the ninth, he worked around a two-out Anthony Rizzo single by striking out Kris Bryant to end the contest. Regular closer Mark Melancon has struggled while showing diminished velocity, perhaps why he wasn't used. Manager Clint Hurdle stuck by Melancon when prompted by the media prior to Wednesday's game, but if Melancon continues to struggle, Watson could see increased save chances. As a result, he's worth stashing in leagues with deep rosters. Apr 22 - 10:46 PM
