Giants' Mark Melancon: Set to join Giants
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Melancon has agreed to a contract with the Giants, ESPN's Buster Olney reports.

The deal is still pending a physical, but barring any hiccups, Melancon is on the move from the East Coast to the West Coast. He is primed to take over as the Giants' closer, a role they had a difficult time filling effectively at the end of last season. Melancon is coming off arguably the best season of his career, one which saw him post a 1.64 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 65:12 K:BB over 75 appearances with the Pirates and Nationals.

Nationals' Mark Melancon: Picks up 47th save Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon gave up a hit in a scoreless ninth inning Sunday to pick up his 47th save of the season in a win over the Marlins.

He fell four saves shy of matching last year's career high, but Melancon still enjoyed a tremendous regular season split between Washington and Pittsburgh, posting a 1.64 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 65:12 K:BB in 71.1 innings. The Nats will look for him to anchor their bullpen as they attempt to make the first deep playoff run in franchise history.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Melancon notched his 46th save in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Marlins, pitching 1.1 innings of scoreless ball and striking out one.

It was business as usual for the dominant closer, who locked down his fourth consecutive scoreless effort. Melancon heads into the postseason with a 46-for-50 performance in save opportunities, which represents the second-highest save total of his career.

Nationals' Mark Melancon: Earns 45th save Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Melancon recorded the final two outs of Thursday's game against Arizona to earn his 45th save of the season.

Reynaldo Lopez made it a save situation by allowing a two-run homer to Socrates Brito in the ninth. Melancon was called upon and nailed down the win, recording the final two outs on a total of 10 pitches. He is now 14-for-15 in save opportunities since joining Washington and has converted 45 of 49 chances on the year. The right-hander appears headed for a big payday this winter.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Melancon earned his 44th save by pitching a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout Tuesday against Arizona.
