    • Angels' Blake Parker: Picks up eighth save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Parker struck out two in a perfect ninth inning against the Mariners on Friday en route to his eighth save of the season. It was nice to see Parker bounce back after his two-run hiccup against the White Sox on Wednesday. Parker only worked his way into the ninth-inning mix late in the year, but he has been the team's best reliever all season, posting a 2.54 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 86:16 K:BB over 67.1 innings. While roles may remain somewhat fluid in the Angels' bullpen, Parker looks like the reliever to own in Anaheim heading into 2018.

    • Angels' Blake Parker: Suffers rare tough outing
      By RotoWire Staff

      Parker was saddled with the loss after giving up a walkoff, two-run home run in Wednesday's extra-inning loss to the White Sox. Parker was forced to enter a tie game after manager Mike Scioscia exhausted the rest of his top bullpen arms following Garrett Richards' abbreviated start. While it wasn't technically a blown save, the end result still left an ugly mark on his fantasy owners' ERAs at a crucial point of the season. This was a rare blemish on the 32-year-old's breakout campaign (2.58 ERA), so expect Parker to bounce back as he has time and time again over the course of the year.

    • Angels' Blake Parker: Converts seventh save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Parker struck out a batter over a scoreless frame for his seventh save of the season in Sunday's win over the Astros. It was just the 32-year-old's first save since Sept. 15 due to the Angels' six-game losing streak. Parker occasionally gets save opportunities vultured by his fellow relievers, but his usage in the ninth with all bullpen arms available Sunday confirms his role as the team's closer.

    • Angels' Blake Parker: Picks up six-out save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Parker threw two scoreless innings with three strikeouts against the Rangers on Friday en route to his sixth save of the season. Parker allowed a couple inherited runners to score in the eighth, but he ultimately nailed down the win to put the Angels just a couple games back of the second wild card. The 32-year-old had given up runs in his last two outings and had ceded a save opportunity to Yusmeiro Petit in the second of said appearances, but Parker's been excellent throughout most of the year and still looks to be the favorite for save chances over the remaining weeks.

    • Angels' Blake Parker: Works eighth inning Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Parker worked the eighth inning of Sunday's 5-3 victory over the Mariners, allowing a solo homer and striking out three en route to his 15th hold. Yusmeiro Petit closed out the game to earn his third save. Manager Mike Scioscia explained to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register afterward that he liked Parker there in the eighth with the lefty-loaded top of the order due up. This comes after Parker blew a save in his Sept. 4 appearance. Parker still seems like the favorite for save chances despite these recent developments, but it's clear that Scioscia is still open to mixing and matching and keeping roles fluid at the back end of the bullpen.
