TB – With Kyle Farnsworth ailing, Joel Peralta picked up his third save of the season against the Orioles. With Joe Maddon, though, it'll be hard to count on any single player for saves down the stretch while Farnsworth is down. J.P. Howell, Jake McGee, and Matt Moore could be in line for saves as well.

Recommended Pickup

Randall Delgado, P, ATL

Jair Jurrjens could be out for the rest of the regular season, and Tommy Hanson is still on the mend. That means more starts for Randall Delgado. Delgado has a 3.60 ERA on the season, and with the help of the solid defense and expansive park in Atlanta, he could continue to post good numbers down the stretch.
