Marcus Walden saves second game of doubleheader

Marcus Walden recorded the final two outs of a 5-2 win over the Phillies to notch his first save of the season in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Fantasy Impact:

With normal closer, Matt Barnes blowing the save in the first game of the doubleheader, Walden was brought in to close out the game in the second game. The 31-year-old righty owns a 9.53 ERA, 2.29 WHIP, and 8/9 K/BB ratio across 11 1/3 innings this season. Barnes should continue to be the main option for saves and Walden is not worth owning in fantasy.
