Chicago White Sox CL Ronald Belisario blew his fourth save Monday, June 23, allowing a three-run homer. It was his first blown save in nearly a month.
Fantasy Tip: The outing raised his ERA from 4.79 to 5.50, and his seat should start to get warmer. He has had little competition for the role, however. Daniel Webb is still struggling with his control, and Scott Downs' best days are behind him. Javy Guerra is one to watch. The former Los Angeles Dodgers closer has 12 K's in 12 1/3 innings and a 2.19 ERA.
