Edwin Diaz perfect in save against former team on Saturday

Edwin Diaz struck out three in a perfect ninth inning on Saturday against the Mariners, earning his eighth save.

Fantasy Impact:

Diaz's fastball was more than a mile per hour faster than his average this season, so chances are he was pumped up to face his former team. He now has a 1.80 ERA, a 0.80 WHIP, and a career-best 49.1% strikeout rate. In a world of uncertain closers, Diaz is one of the best and should continue to be all season long.
