Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Collects 20th save Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler pitched a scoreless inning on one hit to earn his 20th save Saturday against the Indians.

Kintzler was protecting a two-run lead, and despite allowing a baserunner, was easily able to close out the victory. He's been one of the best draft day values at closer, as he boasts a 2.78 ERA to go along with a 1.11 WHIP.

Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Cruises to 19th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler worked around a single hit and recorded a strikeout in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday against the White Sox for his 19th save.

He needed just 10 pitches to do so, and Kintzler continues turning in respectable work at the back end of the Minnesota bullpen. The 32-year-old's ratios are just alright and his strikeout rate is downright poor, but it's hard to spit in the face of 19 saves.

Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Fires just five pitches to garner save no. 18
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler pitched a spotless ninth inning Tuesday to collect his career-high 18th save of the season.

Although he didn't record a single strikeout, Kintzler had a drama-free ninth inning. He threw just five pitches (all strikes) to retire the three batters he faced, now making him 18-for-21 on save opportunities this season. He's not the flashiest closer around, but as his 2.97 ERA shows, he is effective and has the closer's role on lockdown in Minnesota.

Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Bounces back after blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler threw a scoreless inning with two strikeouts to record his 16th save in Thursday's win at Seattle.

Kintzler bounced back after allowing a home run in a blown save in Wednesday's loss. While he has just a 5.9 K/9, he's converted 16 of 19 save chances this season and faces little competition for the closer role with the rest of Minnesota's bullpen struggling.

Twins' Brandon Kintzler: Allows walk-off home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler gave up a two-run home run in the ninth inning to blow a save in Wednesday's loss at Seattle.

It was Kintzler's first loss of the season as he had converted 15 of 17 save chances before Wednesday. While Kintzler's 5.7 K/9 and 4.42 FIP would appear to indicate his early season success in the role isn't sustainable, he's also facing little competition for the closer role with the rest of Minnesota's bullpen struggling.
