Johnson pitched a clean ninth inning Friday against Washington to secure his seventh save of the season.

Though Johnson has blown two saves this season, he's converted each of his last four opportunities. He has an impressive 19:3 K:BB on the season, while only allowing 13 hits in 17 innings. There are more reliable closers than Johnson, but he's certainly an asset who will see his fair share of save opportunities as the season wears on.
