    • Brewers' Corey Knebel: Collects 39th save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Knebel struck out two batters during a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 39th save of the season during Thursday's win over Cincinnati. Knebel has now converted consecutive saves without allowing a run. He had taken the loss in each of his previous two appearances, which also included one blown save, so it's an encouraging rebound with the season on the line. Knebel has emerged as a high-end closer and now sports a 1.56 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 14.9 K/9 to go along with his 39 saves.

    • Brewers' Corey Knebel: Locks down 38th save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Knebel allowed a hit and recorded one strikeout in a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his 38th save Tuesday against the Reds. Knebel entered the game with the Brewers clinging to a 7-6 lead in a must-win game against their divisional foes. The closer allowed a single to Joey Votto with one out, but was able to notch a strikeout and induce a flyout to strand the tying run at second base and preserve the victory. It was his first converted save opportunity in a week.

    • Knebel allowed one earned run over two innings and took the loss Friday as the Brewers fell to the Cubs. He allowed two hits and posted a 2:3 K:BB in his appearance. Knebel was needed for 34 pitches Friday -- his most since May 11 -- and he could not keep the Cubs off the basepaths, and ultimately the scoreboard. With Knebel testing the limits of his pitch count Friday and the Brewers and Cubs squaring off early Saturday afternoon, he may not be available out of the Brewers' bullpen. If the Brewers find themselves in a save situation, manager Craig Counsell could opt to go with Anthony Swarzak or Jeremy Jeffress instead.

    • Brewers' Corey Knebel: Likely unavailable Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Knebel likely won't be available Thursday after working the previous three days, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The right-hander imploded Wednesday, blowing his sixth save opportunity of the season. Of course, it broke a 21-game streak of successful tries, so Knebel has acquired a long leash. Still, he's combined for 44 pitches over the last three days, a copious workload for a closer, so he, along with Anthony Swarzak, likely will take a seat. A Brewers save chance could involve a mix of Josh Hader, Jacob Barnes and others, making even speculation for title-hunting daily-transaction players a bit of a quandary.

    • Brewers' Corey Knebel: Implodes in loss Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Knebel (1-3) blew his sixth save of the season and earned the loss after allowing two runs on two hits and a walk in one inning Wednesday against the Pirates. It was a night to forget for Knebel. The 25-year-old allowed an inherited baserunner to score and tie the game in the eighth inning on his throwing error. Then, he served up a game-winning, two-run homer to Adam Frazier in the bottom of the ninth inning without recording an out. Knebel, who had converted 21 consecutive save opportunities prior to Wednesday night, still owns a shiny 1.52 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 119:37 K:BB through 71 innings this season.
