Mark Melancon tosses perfect ninth inning Saturday

Mark Melancon tossed a perfect ninth inning Saturday in the Diamondbacks' 6-3 loss to the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

Melancon has had a rough month for the Diamondbacks, allowing runs in three or eight relief appearances in June for the club, posting a 3.86 ERA with two strikeouts and one save in two save opportunities. The 37-year-old right-hander could be an enticing option for teams with depleted bullpen options as the trade deadline approaches. The veteran carries a 1.56 WHIP and 5.55 ERA with 12 strikeouts and 11 saves in 28 relief appearances (2-6) this season.

Mark Melancon strikes out one in Diamondbacks loss Tuesday night

Mark Melancon pitched the 10th inning on Tuesday, striking out one, and giving up one hit for an unearned run which was the ghost runner in the Diamondbacks' 5-3 loss to the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Melancon has been the Diamondbacks main reliever this season and he was used that way Tuesday as he was brought in for the 10th inning to help close things out and keep it rather clean closing the game with a 5.91 ERA which has come almost 2.00 down from where he was at a few weeks ago. The Diamondbacks reliever has 11 saves on the season and will be set to double that at a minimum this season so long as the team can put him in a good position.

Mark Melancon earns his second win of the season on Thursday afternoon

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Mark Melancon pitched the eighth inning on Thursday, allowing one hit for zero earned runs in the Diamondbacks' 5-4 win over the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Melancon came into pitch the eighth inning on Thursday which was rather unusual as he is normally the teams main closer and the team was behind two runs. Thankfully for managers of the D-backs reliever he at least managed to pick up the win on Thursday but his usage is rather strange and may be of concern if it happens again.

Mark Melancon drops sixth game of the season on Saturday

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Mark Melancon pitched the ninth inning on Saturday, allowing two hits for two earned runs in the Diamondbacks' 2-1 loss to the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

One day after picking up his 11th save of the season Melancon dropped his sixth game of the season giving him a record of 1-6 so far. The Diamondbacks reliever has a ERA of 6.87 and is looking less and less like himself as he had just seemed to get past his struggles but now seems to really be struggling with consistency.

Mark Melancon earns 11th save of season in D-backs win Friday

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Mark Melancon pitched the ninth inning on Friday, striking out one, and allowing one hit in the Diamondbacks' 8-6 win over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

Melancon came into the ninth inning after the team saw a five run lead evaporate to two after a Ke'Bryan Hayes 3-run homer. In relief Friday the Diamondbacks' reliever was efficient throwing an eight pitch three out inning en route to his 11th save.
