Joaquin Benoit delivers 10th save Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/25/14) Padres closer Joaquin Benoit picked up his 10th save Wednedsay, striking out one in a 1-2-3 ninth inning to slam the door on his team's 4-3 win over the Rockies.
Benoit has turned in four straight perfect innings, with two coming after a long layoff caused by a shoulder issue. He owns a 1.52 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 63:14 K:BB ratio in 53 1/3 innings.
Joaquin Benoit returns for Padres

|(9/22/14) Padres reliever Joaquin Benoit, who had been out since Aug. 26 with shoulder discomfort, returned to the mound Sunday against the Giants, striking out two in a perfect ninth inning of an 8-2 victory.
Benoit was the closer before being sidelined by the injury, and the San Diego Union-Tribune reported earlier in the weekend that the Padres would ease him back into that role. Kevin Quackenbush has closed in his absence.
Padres may ease Joaquin Benoit back into action

|(9/18/14) The Padres may ease pitcher Joaquin Benoit back into action before using him in save situations, according to U-T San Diego. Benoit has been since Aug. 26 because of a shoulder injury, but could return as early as Friday. He owns a 1.58 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 60:14 K:BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings.
Joaquin Benoit could return Friday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/16/14) Padres clsoer Joaquin Benoit will throw a bullpen session Wednesday and could return to action as early as Friday, U-T San Diego reports.
Benoit has been out since Aug. 26 while recovering from a shoulder injury. He owns a 1.58 ERA and 60:14 K:BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings.
|2014 summary: The Padres signed Joaquin Benoit to a two-year deal last offseason, and he served as the team's setup man until closer Huston Street was dealt to the Angels in July. Benoit performed well in both the setup role and as Street's replacement, and in fact, he did not allow a single run in his 14 appearances after becoming the closer. Overall, Benoit went 4-2 with a 1.49 ERA, 0.77 WHIP, 11 saves and 16 holds. |
Playing time status: Benoit will begin the season as the Padres' closer. Last season, he was the target of trade rumors, and now that he will be in his walk year, it's even more plausible he could be dealt to a team that would use him in the setup role again.
2015 outlook: As long as Benoit remains a closer, he should be highly effective and productive for Fantasy owners. He has the upside of a No. 1 reliever, but can likely be drafted as a second reliever in standard mixed leagues.
