Jim Johnson records 22nd save in Thursday's win

Jim Johnson pitched around a leadoff double and a walk in the ninth inning of a 6-3 win over the Dodgers on Thursday to lock down his 22nd save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson has converted three straight save opportunities since the All-Star break. However, his strikeout rate which was 29.5% during the first half of the season has dipped to 18.2% so far in the second half through three appearances. Something to keep an eye on going forward.

Jim Johnson picks up 19th save against the Nationals

Jim Johnson pitched the ninth innings surrendering one hit and striking two out to earn his 19th save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson is a great source of saves if you're chasing saves. With the Braves actually playing just under .500 ball, Johnson could earn 30+ saves this year. The other surprising thing about Johnson this year is he's posting great strikeout numbers again. Last year Johnson posted 9.46 K/9 and this year he's posting a 11.47 K/9.

Fantasy Impact
