News and notes: 

While David Robertson got the save in his first game with the Phillies, Seranthony Dominguez received back-to-back saves last Tuesday and Wednesday. It initially seemed like Philadelphia traded for Robertson to take over the full-time closer role, but it seems like it’ll remain a committee between him and Dominguez.

In Arizona, it has been a committee between Ian Kennedy and Mark Melancon.

Clay Holmes finally tossed a scoreless appearance after allowing runs in three straight outings. Aroldis Chapman, on the other hand, has tossed seven straight scoreless outings. It is possible the Yankees start giving Chapman some save chances again if he keeps it up.

Diego Castillo returned to the Mariners bullpen off the injured list to toss a scoreless inning on Wednesday against the Yankees. Paul Sewald continues to lead the Mariners bullpen, but he’ll pitch in the eighth and occasionally in the seventh inning while Castillo should continue to see some save chances.
