Joakim Soria buttons up the save

RHP Joakim Soria locked up the save for the D-Backs on Friday when he worked a scoreless ninth inning with one strikeout in a 5-2 win over the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact:

Soria was tasked with protecting a three-run lead against the high-powered Dodgers on Friday night and got the job done with no issues. He hasn't allowed a run in six straight appearances, which has lowered his ERA to 4.07 to go along with a 1.32 WHIP and 23:8 K/BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings. He's now picked up three saves in the last five games and is the unquestioned closer in the desert. He should be a priority waiver add if you're in need of help in the saves department.
