Toronto Blue Jays RP Roberto Osuna is unavailable Wednesday, July 27, along with RP Jesse Chavez. RP Jason Grilli and RP Joaquin Benoit will be called upon to protect late-inning leads.
Fantasy Tip: Grilli might have the upper hand. Benoit has a 5.18 ERA, while Grilli's ERA is 3.63 with a 1.33 WHIP and 50 K's in 34 2/3 innings. His K/9 is the highest it has been since his peak years with the Pittsburgh Pirates. If you have daily pickups, he's worth speculating on today if you're seeking saves.
