Maton was used as the setup man today. If the Padres wanted to go young at the closer position he would be the best option if they deal Kirby Yates. It would be between 25-year-old Maton and 34-year-old Craig Stammen.
Phil Maton had his longest outing of his career Saturday. Maton lowered his ERA to 0.56 as he successfully shut out the Cards during the 11th and 12th innings. Tonight he gave up three hits while striking out two.
Maton has had a very good start to his career but should not be useful in any fantasy format at this time.
