  • Mark Melancon Out As Closer, Arizona Going With Committee

    Arizona Diamondbacks skipper Torey Lovullo said that the team will go with a closer-by-committee approach moving forward, which means right-hander Mark Melancon and his 4.66 ERA will be demoted from the ninth inning for the foreseeable future. The 37-year-old veteran is also 3-10 with a 1.58 WHIP, 14 saves, 26 strikeouts and 13 walks in 36 2/3 innings pitched this year. He'll likely work in low-leverage situations for the time being, with some combination of veteran Ian Kennedy, Joe Mantiply and Kyle Nelson factoring into the committee approach. Kennedy had the team's most recent save on Tuesday and has a 3.15 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, five saves and 32 K's in 34 1/3 innings this year. He's probably your best bet if you're speculating on saves in Arizona.

  • Mark Melancon Locks Down His 10th Save

    Arizona Diamondbacks closer Mark Melancon put a cap on the team's 8-6 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday. He pitched a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one hit and no walks while striking out one. The 37-year-old is now 10-for-11 on save opportunities this year. He's had a few blow-up outings that have resulted in his season-long numbers looking extremely ugly (7.04 ERA, 1.83 WHIP). Melancon should remain the team's primary closer for now, but if he continues to have some rough outings, Ian Kennedy would likely be the next man up.

  • Mark Melancon Picks Up Eighth Save

    Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Mark Melancon pitched a clean ninth inning on Thursday to close out his club's 3-1 win over the Cubs. He needed just 16 pitches to do so as he struck out one and issued a pair of groundouts to pick up his eighth save of the campaign. The veteran has struggled in recent outings on the mound, giving up seven earned runs across his previous four appearances to give him an uninspiring 7.43 ERA and 1.88 WHIP with five losses over 13 1/3 IP. Although the ratios are poor, he still seems to have a hold on the closing gig in Arizona which keeps him fantasy relevant in all formats that acknowledge saves.
