Littell allowed a hit in a scoreless inning to earn a hold in Thursday's 3-1 win over Pittsburgh.
Littell has holds in each of his last two appearances. The 25-year-old right-hander has yet to allow a run across five innings. He's only given up two hits and three walks while striking out three in that span. Littell probably won't challenge for save opportunities, and his 4.29 FIP suggests regression could be coming, although he should still be a fairly effective bullpen option.
