Cubs Kevin Gregg finally blew a save chance Saturday by allowing one run in the ninth. Blake Parker ended up with the save in extra innings. The job is save with Gregg, who came back and earned his 13th save Sunday. However, if Gregg is traded Parker could figure in the closers role.
Dodgers Kenley Jansen blew a save opportunity by allowing one run but earned the win Saturday. Jansen has earned a longer leash than one blown save, so the job is save at this point.
Indians Chris Perez returned Friday and earned a save Saturday.
Red Sox Koji Uehara had converted his first three save opportunities without incident and had allowed just two baserunners in his last nine outings, but he slipped Sunday and blew a save by allowing a solo home run to Jose Bautista. There is no reason to hit the panic button on Uehara at this time.
