Mychal Givens picks up the save on Wednesday night

Mychal Givens allowed one hit and struck out one over 1 1/3 scoreless innings to record his eighth save of the season in Wednesday's 9-2 win over the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact

The save was the eighth of the season for Givens who has struggled in the closer's role. On the year the veteran reliever has a 4.34 ERA and 52:16 K:BB through 37.1 innings, with a win, four holds and five blown saves in 32 appearances.

Mychal Givens picks up the save on Saturday

Mychal Givens threw two perfect innings with two strikeouts against the Rays in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader en route to his seventh save.

Fantasy Impact

Givens has been disappointing for fantasy owners as he is now 7-for-12 in save chances with a 4.50 ERA and 1.22 WHIP. The 29-year-old reliever will more than likely get traded to a contender before the trade deadline and his save opportunities will dry up. Owners should be looking elsewhere for a closer.

Mychal Givens blows the save in loss on Sunday

Mychal Givens gave up a game-tying solo home run in the ninth inning to blow the save in Sunday's 10-inning loss to the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Givens had regained his closer role with the Orioles after losing it during a rough stretch in May. He doesn't get many opportunities on a bad team which makes him hard to own in fantasy. Owners desperate for saves may want to hold onto Givens but he is not a must own.
