Player Notes
Hector Rondon notched his 18th save of the season Sunday in the Cubs' 5-4 defeat of the Brewers.

Advice: Rondon served up a two-out homer to Kirk Nieuwenhuis but retired the other three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning at Miller Park -- two via strikeout. The right-hander holds a 1.95 ERA, 0.73 WHIP, and 48/5 K/BB ratio in 37 innings this season for the Cubs, but his days as a closer could be numbered with Theo Epstein and Co. searching the trade block for another elite late-inning arm.

Hector Rondon converted his 17th save with a scoreless inning Friday against the Brewers.

Advice: Rondon struck out a pair in the frame and worked around a one-out walk to lock down the victory. He only has 17 saves this season, but four of them have come in the past two weeks. With a 1.75 ERA and 46/5 K/BB ratio in 36 innings, there’s no reason for Rondon to lose his closer job on merit, but the pecking order could change if the Cubs end up acquiring another late-inning reliever by August 1.

Fri, Jul 22 Rotoworld
Hector Rondon retired the only two batters he faced to nail down his 16th save of the season in Monday's win over the Mets.

Advice: It was about as easy as it comes as far as saves go, as Rondon entered with a four-run lead and two runners on and induced a double-play ball to end it. The Cubs have easily the best run differential in the majors, but since they've been in so many blowouts it hasn't led to many save chances for Rondon. However, with a 1.64 ERA and 42/4 K/BB ratio over 33 innings, he's been absurdly good when called upon.
