Player Notes
Ryan Madson pitched a shaky ninth inning but earned a save despite giving up a run on Wednesday.

Advice: He has 22 saves but has also blown six already. At 7.36 K/9 Madson does not have the premium strikeout rate that is the hallmark of reliable closers. He has a 3.89 ERA in 44 innings and is a trade candidate this week. His owners may want to handcuff Ryan Dull quickly.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that he will stick with Ryan Madson at closer.

Advice: Madson blew his sixth save of the season in Monday's loss to the Rangers and has watched his ERA rise every month -- from 1.42 at the end of April, to 2.42 at the end of May, to 3.00 at the end of June, to the 3.77 mark where it sits now. Ryan Dull probably deserves a shot, but it's not going to happen yet. "At this point, we still have confidence in him," Melvin said of Madson. "He’s throwing as hard as he has all year here the last couple times out, he’s performed really well the last couple of times before (Monday)."

Ryan Madson took his sixth blown save after giving up a two-run homer to the Rangers in Monday's loss.

Advice: Madson has given up a whopping five homers and 10 runs in his last 12 innings of work, so his time as a closer could be coming to a close. Ryan Dull has looked like Oakland's best reliever all season long and is worthy of an opportunity.
