Nationals RP Drew Storen slams door for 23rd save
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(6/28/15) Nationals closer Drew Storen continues to compile saves, retiring the side in order Sunday to preserve a victory over the Phillies and grab his 23rd save of the season.
Storen has just two blown saves on the season, and against the Phillies, compiled a clean inning for just the fourth time in his last 10 outings. He gave up a couple of fly balls, signaling his slider may have been a bit off, but needed just eight pitches to close out the win.

Nationals RP Drew Storen notches 22nd save on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|

Nationals' Drew Storen earns save in Tuesday's win
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/24/15) Nationals pitcher Drew Storen recorded the final three outs to earn a save and preserve a 3-1 win over the Braves on Tuesday.
Despite allowing two hits and a walk, Storen was able to earn his 21st save of the season. He has only blown one save this season.
|2014 Summary: After seemingly disqualifying himself as a viable closer option with an uncharacteristically bad 2013, Drew Storen was one of the best relievers in baseball in 2014. That made him the choice over Tyler Clippard to replace a struggling Rafael Soriano in September. He never looked back, piling up 10 saves in the span of three weeks. In all, he had 11 to go along with a 1.12 ERA, second-best among relievers with at least 50 innings.|
Playing time status: Storen's move back to closer, a role he held prior to missing the first two-thirds of 2012 because of elbow surgery, was supposed to be temporary, but since he never relinquished the role, the Nationals must have liked what they saw. With Soriano hitting the open market this offseason, the smart money has Storen closing in 2015, four years after he first proved he could do it with 43 saves.
2015 Outlook: Drafted to close back in 2009, Storen's career has come full circle, but to say he's tailor made for the role would be overlooking one obvious drawback: In five big-league seasons, he has never averaged a strikeout per inning and had only 7.3 per nine in 2014. Closers who don't miss bats are inherently dangerous, but Storen is certainly good enough to keep the job. Another sub-2.00 ERA is unlikely, but he's worth targeting in the same range as Zach Britton, just after the top 12 relievers go off the board.
