Candidates emerging in White Sox bullpen
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/7/14) After using him much like a team would use its closer in a tie game Wednesday, the White Sox brought in Zach Putnam to pitch the ninth inning of a one-run game Saturday against the Mariners only to watch him blow it. They'd go on to lose in the 14th inning.

So when they had another save opportunity Sunday against those same Mariners, they instead turned to Jake Petricka ... in the eighth inning, that is.

Because Putnam's blown save wasn't the most epic of meltdowns, especially when you consider one of those runs was charged to Eric Surkamp, and because Petricka wasn't used like a traditional closer Sunday, I'm not sure either is a clear front-runner right now. But I do believe one of the two will get the White Sox's next save.

My guess is Putnam so that the White Sox can keep Petricka available for multiple innings, but both deserve to be owned in leagues where saves are scarce.

Zach Putnam blows save Saturday vs. Mariners
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/5/14) White Sox pitcher Zach Putnam was charged with a blown save Saturday after giving up one earned run on three hits in one inning of action in his team's 3-2, 14-inning loss to the Mariners.

Putnam wasn't brought in to start the ninth inning with his team up 2-0, but he was quickly summoned after the leadoff batter drew a walk. After giving up a hit to the first batter he faced, he was able to record the first out of the inning but saw the inherited runner score when the next batter delivered a sacrifice fly. The Mariners managed consecutive two-out singles to tie the game before Putnam escaped the inning. After taking his first blown save, Putnam owns a 2.41 ERA and 27:12 K:BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings.

Zach Putnam used like a closer would be
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/3/14) The White Sox didn't have a save situation Wednesday and still haven't had one since Zach Putnam recorded a save Saturday at Toronto. But of course, a save situation isn't the only situation in which a team uses its closer, and manager Robin Ventura may have tipped his hand for his preferred choice for the role with the way he used Putnam Wednesday.

Because the home team always bats last, its only chance for a save is the ninth inning, so it often uses its closer in the ninth inning of a tie game just to ensure the game stays tied.

Putnam pitched the ninth inning of Wednesday's game against the Angels, which is how he ended up with the win.

Of course, he technically entered with two outs in the eighth, which isn't normally how a team uses its closer, so if we're going to read into which way Ventura is leaning based on how he uses his relievers in non-save situations, we can't just ignore that.

But considering Putnam got the last save, I'm willing to bet he gets the next one, too. He may not profile as a closer in terms of pure stuff, but with a 2.20 ERA and 1.07 WHIP, he's the best the White Sox have.

Zach Putnam picks up a save Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/28/14) White Sox reliever Zach Putnam picked up a save Saturday against the Blue Jays.

The White Sox said prior to the game that they would go with a committee approach at closer, and Putnam got the first chance to succeed. He entered the game to get an out in the eighth inning, and remained in the game for the ninth. 

Putnam did run into some trouble during the outing. He allowed a leadoff double to begin the ninth, and followed it up with an RBI single to cut the team's lead to just one run. Putnam was then able to retire the last three hitters without an issue. He tossed 1 1/3 innings, allowing three hits and one run.

Zach Putnam on a roll
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/17/14) White Sox reliever Zach Putnam has a 0.86 ERA over his last 17 outings, including 15 scoreless appearances, notes ESPN.com. Putnam has 19 strikeouts in 25 1/3 innings and boasts a 1.03 WHIP.

He's 2-1 with a 1.42 ERA overall, but has not gotten a save opportunity.
