News: Brach picked up a save in Saturday's win over Tampa Bay, throwing 1.1 scoreless innings.
Impact: You certainly shouldn't expect Brach to pick up more saves anytime soon, as he just came into special circumstances. Miguel Gonzalez had allowed two runners to reach base with a four-run lead in the eighth inning, forcing Buck Showalter to bring in Brach as a fresh arm and then keep him in for the ninth.

News: Brach gave up two runs on five hits over two innings while striking out three in relief against the Jays on Friday.
Impact: He entered with the bases loaded in the top of fourth inning, and all three runners came around to score. Fortunately for those attempting to squeeze holds from Brach, those runs counted against starter Bud Norris. Still, that he was used in the fourth and fifth inning of a blowout suggests that he's currently a couple of chairs away from the closer role should anything happen to Zach Britton.
