John Axford shuts the door for 23rd save

John Axford entered the game with a 3-to-2 lead against the Seattle Mariners and was able to hold on for the save. He allowed one hit but also struck out in the effort.

Fantasy Impact

Axford has had an up-and-down season and has been removed from the closer role once this season. Due to ineffectiveness from others they have tried, he has moved back to closer, and has been getting the job done. Expect Axford to be a low-end closer option to finish out the regular season.
