Manager Ryne Sandberg said Diekman and Ken Giles are the likely candidates to close if Jonathan Papelbon needs a day off, the Phillies' official site reports.



Impact
Papelbon is also a candidate to be traded this month, which means Giles and Diekman are worth stashing if you are speculating for potential saves. Diekman is 3-2 with a 4.32 ERA and a 57:18 K:BB ratio in 41.2 innings. He has allowed a .809 OPS against right-handed hitters this season which may ultimately prevent him from assuming the closing role long-term. Sandberg said he thinks Diekman can improve against righties with better command of his slider.
