Player Notes
Zach Putnam was called on to close out the Royals Tuesday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save.

Advice: A day after Jake Petricka took his fourth blown save, it was Putnam, with Petricka backing him up, who was brought in for the save chance. Putnam responded by inducing three ground ball outs to end the game. Given that Petricka was throwing in the bullpen it's fair to wonder how manager Robin Ventura views the ninth inning currently. Putnam is the less sexy player from a numbers standpoint -- he has just 44 strikeouts in 54 innings of work this season -- but his 2.00 ERA and 1.07 WHIP suggest he's capable of getting the job done if asked. Owners looking for saves should invest in both relievers until some clarity is gained.
