If you saw 39 saves coming from Melancon last year, you're a fibber. He emerged from a crowded San Diego bullpen to become one of the most reliable closing options in the game. Yes, he's old for a closer and no, his strikeout numbers won't help you. But he'll be the undisputed closer for the Diamondbacks this year, and job security is more than half the battle. You have to knock a ton of saves off his projections given that he'll be pitching for a poor Arizona team, but 25-30 should be in the cards, and the guy did have a 2.23 ERA last season. His contract should keep him in Arizona for the full year, so grit your teeth and draft him as a fairly reliable option in the bullpen.

Mark Melancon records 18th save in Wednesday's win over Astros

Mark Melancon tossed a perfect ninth inning in relief for the Diamondbacks Wednesday, recording his 18th save in the Diamondbacks' 5-2 win over the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Melancon has held opponents scoreless in seven of 10 September relief appearances for the Diamondbacks, posting a 1.20 WHIP and 2.70 ERA in that span. The veteran right-hander has been inconsistent at the back end of the Arizona bullpen for most of the season, posting a 1.54 WHIP and 4.67 ERA with 34 strikeouts and 18 saves in 60 relief appearances this season.
