Jake Petricka picks up fourth save Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/14) White Sox pitcher Jake Petricka earned his fourth save Monday, giving up one hit and striking out one while recording the final three outs of his team's 3-1 win over the Royals.

Petricka has bounced back after giving up two runs while not recording an out on July 9 to turn in three straight scoreless appearances, giving him a 2.10 ERA and 39:26 K:BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings. Both he and Zach Putnam are candidates for saves moving forward.

Zach Putnam pulls ahead of Jake Petricka?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/14) White Sox reliever Zach Putnam recorded two saves this weekend, but only the first was conventional. He struck out two in a perfect ninth inning against the Astros Friday. 

Manager Robin Ventura handed the ball to Jake Petricka in the ninth inning of a one-run game Saturday, but after he put two on, Ventura turned to Putnam, who struck out Jason Castro to end the game.

Ventura wouldn't commit to a single closer after the game, but Saturday wasn't the first time Petricka faltered in a high-leverage situation this month. His poor outing July 9 contributed to a come-from-behind win for the Red Sox. Ventura did say he prefers Putnam against left-handed batters, which would support a platoon, but I get the sense Putnam is beginning to distinguish himself.

As I wrote in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog breaking down the more questionable closer situations in baseball, he's the reliever to own for the White Sox right now.

ChiSox leaning on two relievers in save opportunities
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/14) White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Sunday relievers Zach Putnam and Jake Petricka are the top candidates to be used in save situations, according to MLB.com. Putnam picked up saves Friday and Saturday against the Astros, and Petricka has three saves this season.
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.

Jake Petricka untouchable lately
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/7/14) White Sox reliever Jake Petricka, who earned his third save Sunday, has gone 11 innings without allowing a run, notes WEEI.com. He has a 1.85 ERA and 36 strikeouts in 48 2/3 innings.

The White Sox are using a committee approach at closer, but Petricka is making a strong case for more save opportunities.
