Casilla has delivered six scoreless innings while striking out five and walking one this postseason.

The free pass didn't hurt him, as he induced a groundball from the next batter to seal the series. Casilla has delivered three scoreless innings during the postseason. The Giants are slated to square off with the Cardinals in the National League Championship Series.

Assessing Santiago Casilla's job security


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/7/2014) So Bruce Bochy named Santiago Casilla the Giants closer Monday, and no doubt, Fantasy owners thank him for it. As far as they're concerned, the only thing worse than an unreliable closer is an uncertain one.

But of course, not all closers are created equal, and while Casilla has experience in the role, having recorded 25 saves in 2012, and has thrived with a 1.08 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in 29 appearances this season, I don't know that you can assume he inherits all of Sergio Romo's former value.

For one thing, Romo is still in the picture, and even with his poor numbers this season, he still has a more impressive track record than Casilla. Since the start of 2010, which is the same year Casilla came over to the Giants and became the pitcher he is today, Romo has a 2.46 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 10.0 strikeouts per nine innings compared to Casilla's 2.06, 1.16 and 7.7. Plus, consider how quickly everything can change for a pitcher in this role. Less than a month ago, Romo had a 3.00 ERA and nobody even dreamed he'd be where he is now. If he stops serving up so many home runs with his move to middle relief, an untimely blown save for Casilla could easily prompt another change even if he proves to be mostly effective in the role.

Because he lacks strikeout ability, I'd say Casilla's best-case scenario is somewhere in the Mark Melancon range, which isn't bad. That's top-15 potential. If that's the best-case scenario, though, and the worst is him forfeiting the job back to Romo, I'm keeping him behind Zach Britton and Cody Allen in my rankings. I'd say he has more job security than Joe Smith and certainly more than Hector Rondon or Jenrry Mejia, but I'll stay cautious with him for now.


Santiago Casilla earns closer job with Giants


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) The bullpen-by-committed declared by Bruce Bochy after Sergio Romo was removed from the closer role is no longer a bullpen-by-committee for the Giants. Santiago Casilla has taken the job and run with it.

"I think it's fair to say right now," Bochy told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Casilla has two saves in his last two appearances. He has given up just one hit and fanned three in two shutout innings.

"He's got closer stuff," said left-handed specialist Jeremy Affeldt. "Romo has done such a great job for us the last few years. They flip-flopped them or whatever. That's the good thing about this pen. Several of us have closed before. It's not a downgrade in closers or a panic thing."
