Corey Knebel bounces back with eighth save of the season on Wednesday

Corey Knebel pitched a perfect ninth inning on Wednesday against the Padres to earn his eighth save of the season.

Fantasy Impact:

Knebel needed just four pitches to retire the side in the ninth inning, bouncing back nicely from his blown save on Sunday. His 7.88 K/9 rate is noticeably down from his career mark of 12.35, but his expected stats suggest that Knebel is pitching to his numbers thus far. More importantly, Joe Girardi hasn't hesitated to go back to Knebel after a few hiccups, so he should continue to be the stopper in Philadelphia going forward.
