Quackenbush has been used in higher-leverage situations of late, including Sunday's win against the Mets, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
After Odrisamer Despaigne's bid for a no-hitter was quashed with two outs in the eighth inning, Quackenbush entered and struck out Lucas Duda to end the Mets' rally. Meanwhile, since allowing two runs on June 13, Quackenbush has been on point, posting a 0.73 ERA, 0.811 WHIP, and 15:3 K:BB in 12.1 innings. If Joaquin Benoit is dealt before the trade deadline, like Huston Street before him, Quackenbush could be considered for the closing gig. That's a big if, though.
