Insight: Uehara has allowed seven runs on 10 hits in his last 3 1/3 innings and he blew two saves and lost two games in that span. Farrell said Uehara has not reported any symptoms of fatigue.
Ken Giles, RP, PHI8/26/2014 9:41:00 PM
Description: Phillies reliever Ken Giles struck out all three batters he faced and ended up getting his third win of the season Tuesday against Washington.
Insight: The hard-throwing Giles has a 1.38 ERA, a 0.92 WHIP and 47 strikeouts in 32 2/3 innings this season. He's Philadelphia's closer of the future.
Koji Uehara, RP, BOSCold8/25/2014 10:54:00 PM
Description: Boston closer Koji Uehara blew his second straight save Monday at Toronto, but he picked up his sixth win of the year.
Insight: Uehara didn't exactly enter into the best situation, as Clay Buchholz had loaded the bases with one out in a 3-0 game. But those types of leads are usually safe with Uehara when he's on point. The 39-year-old has allowed seven runs on 10 hits in his last 3 1/3 innings.
Sean Doolittle, RP, OAK 8/24/2014 7:37:00 PM
Description: Oakland closer Sean Doolittle has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right intercostal muscle, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser. The strain is not believed to be serious.
Insight: Manager Bob Melvin said he'll use matchups to determine who gets save chances while Doolittle is out, with Luke Gregerson, Ryan Cook and Eric O'Flaherty in the mix. Doolittle has a 2.28 ERA, a 0.70 WHIP, 80 Ks and just five walks in 55 1/3 innings. His 16 K/BB ranks third all time among pitchers with at least 50 innings.
Hector Rondon, RP, CHC8/24/2014 6:29:00 PM
Description: Cubs closer Hector Rondon picked up his 21st save of the season Sunday against the Orioles.

Tsuyoshi Wada, RP, CHCHot8/24/2014 6:25:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Tsuyoshi Wada threw another gem Sunday against the Orioles, going 6 1/3 innings and allowing one run on one hit.
Insight: The 33-year-old Japanese rookie took a no-hitter into the seventh inning before allowing a solo homer to Steve Pearce. Wada struck out eight and is now 4-1 with a 2.56 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and 41 Ks in 45 2/3 innings. He should be added in most leagues.
Koji Uehara, RP, BOSCold8/22/2014 10:54:00 PM
Description: Boston closer Koji Uehara imploded Friday against the Mariners, allowing five runs after entering with a 3-0 lead.

Marcus Stroman, RP, TORCold8/22/2014 9:58:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman's horrible August continued Wednesday against Tampa Bay.

Garrett Richards, RP, ANA 8/22/2014 9:11:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards underwent surgery Friday to repair a torn patellar tendon in his left knee.
Insight: Richards suffered the injury on Aug. 20 at Boston. He's been given a timetable of 6-9 months, so while he might be ready for the start of the 2015 season he also could be out through April.
Chad Qualls, RP, HOU8/20/2014 11:03:00 PM
Description: Astros closer Chad Qualls was unavailable Wednesday against the Yankees due to minor back discomfort, according to Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Qualls has been solid for the Astros, saving 14 games in 17 chances and recording a 3.14 ERA. Jose Veras converted a save Wednesday.
Garrett Richards, RP, ANAHot8/20/2014 9:22:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards suffered a left patellar injury during Wednesday's game. The extent is unknown at the moment, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Richards caught his spike in the dirt as he was covering first base in the second inning and his knee buckled. The right-hander has been the Angels' ace this season and one of the best starters in baseball, going 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA, a 1.04 WHIP and 164 Ks in 168 2/3 innings.
Garrett Richards, RP, ANAHot8/20/2014 8:43:00 PM
Description: Angels starter Garrett Richards suffered what appeared to be a major right leg injury Wednesday against Boston, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Richards caught his spike in the dirt as he was covering first base in the second inning and his knee buckled. The right-hander has been the Angels' ace this season and one of the best starters in baseball, going 13-4 with a 2.61 ERA, a 1.04 WHIP and 164 Ks in 168 2/3 innings.
Aroldis Chapman, RP, CIN8/20/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: Reds closer Aroldis Chapman (shoulder) should be good to go Wednesday, according to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Insight: Chapman has been dealing with a sore shoulder the past two days. In his last appearance on Sunday, he walked all four batters he faced and J.J. Hoover allowed the remaining three to score after he replaced Chapman.
Jesse Hahn, RP, SDPHot8/19/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: The Padres have sent Jesse Hahn to Double-A to limit his innings.
Insight: Hahn threw 69 innings last year in the Rays system, and manager Bud Black said near the end of July that he was unlikely to double his innings this season. He's thrown 110 1/3 innings between the minors and majors and has gone 7-3 with a 2.96 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and 65 Ks in 70 innings with the Padres.
Aroldis Chapman, RP, CIN8/19/2014 10:45:00 AM
Description: Reds closer Aroldis Chapman was reportedly "not available" Monday night while dealing with an achy shoulder, according to manager Bryan Price.
Insight: That could explain his ugly outing Sunday in which he walked four batters and was pulled. His ERA will jump almost a full run to 2.82, but he's still an elite closer with 26 saves and 74 Ks in 38 1/3 IP. Consider him questionable for Tuesday.
Carlos Torres, RP, NYM8/18/2014 2:14:00 PM
Description: For a last-minute fill-in starter, Mets right-hander Carlos Torres pitched very well, going five innings and yielding just three hits and zero earned runs.
Insight: After 53 relief appearances, this was his first start of the year and based on the results maybe it shouldn't be his last. He did start nine games in 2013 with not-so-great results (3-5, 4.89 ERA, 1.288 WHIP).
Aroldis Chapman, RP, CIN8/17/2014 9:46:00 PM
Description: Reds closer Aroldis Chapman threw 28 pitches, 16 for balls, walking four batters without recording an out.
Insight: Chapman didn't appear to be hurt, just wild. Chalk this one up to a rare bad outing and move on. His ERA will jump almost a full run to 2.82, but he's still an elite closer with 26 saves and 74 Ks in 38 1/3 IP.
Huston Street, RP, SDP8/17/2014 7:30:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles closer Huston Street blew his first save as a member of the Angels after saving his first nine games.
Insight: Street has actually been great all season and it's just his second blown save versus 33 successes. His ERA, after giving up two runs Sunday, is still a miniscule 1.20.
Shane Greene, RP, NYYHot8/16/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Yankees starter Shane Greene followed up the best start of his career with a career-high 10 Ks in six two-run innings Saturday at Tampa Bay.
Insight: Greene has gone 3-1 with a 2.91 ERA and a 39/11 K/BB in 43 innings since he joined the rotation on July 7. He's really come out of nowhere after posting a 4.61 ERA in Triple-A this season.
Jim Johnson, RP, DET8/14/2014 2:37:00 PM
Description: Former closer Jim Johnson, who recently signed a minor league deal with the Detroit Tigers, could get the call soon, according to Tigers beat reporter Jason Beck.
Insight: Johnson was horrible in Oakland (4-2, 7.14 ERA, 2.058 WHIP). Detroit called up Melvin Mercedes on Thursday only because Johnson wanted to pitch one more time at Toledo.
Chase Anderson, RP, ARIHot8/14/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks starter Chase Anderson has yielded two runs or less in each of his last five starts heading into Thursday's matchup with Miami.
Insight: Anderson is one of the few Arizona pitchers with good numbers this season having gone 7-4 with a 3.06 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. In his last five starts he's posted a 1.80 ERA and 1.120 WHIP, including 30 Ks in 31 IP.
Tsuyoshi Wada, RP, CHCHot8/13/2014 10:42:00 PM
Description: Cubs starter Tsuyoshi Wada held the Brewers to two runs on five hits and struck out five in 6 2/3 innings Wednesday to win his second game of the season.
Insight: Wada has a 3.15 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP and 30 Ks in 34 1/3 innings. The 33-year-old lefty has allowed two runs or less in five of his six starts this season.
Matt Lindstrom, RP, CWS8/12/2014 6:16:00 PM
Description: White Sox closer Matt Lindstrom (ankle) has been activated from the disabled list.
Insight: Lindstrom suffered a torn tendon sheath in his ankle on May 19 and had to undergo surgery. Ronald Belisario was a horror show as the closer, but Jeff Petricka has been good since he took over the job. Lindstrom will probably have to earn the job back.
