Jesse Hahn allowed one hit and one walk while striking out none across one inning to earn the save during Monday’s 3-0 win over the Indians.
The Royals with a 3-0 lead decided to go with Hahn to close the game out in the bottom of the ninth inning. Greg Holland the primary closer was available and hadn’t pitched since Opening Day. Hahn issued a walk and a hit before getting Eddie Rosario to ground into a double play. He recorded the final out to earn his first save of the season. Royals manager Mike Matheny will likely use some sort of committee when closing out games between Hahn, Holland, and Josh Staumont, making the Royals closing situation a frustrating one for fantasy managers.
