Mark Melancon earns a rare save

Mark Melancon record the final out of Wednesday's 11-8 win over the Rockies, picking up his first save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

The 34-year-old was simply filling in with Will Smith unavailable for this one. Melancon now has a 4.02 ERA on the season and could see a couple more save chances if the Giants trade away a lot of their bullpen in the coming weeks.

Mark Melancon has another shaky spring outing

Mark Melancon allowed one run on three hits and a walk as the Giants beat the Royals 7-2 on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact
