News: Benoit struck out two over a perfect ninth inning on Tuesday to pick up his third save of the year. Impact: The only base runner he allowed was a hit by pitch to Daniel Descalso with one out, but he'd follow that up by getting Matt Carpenter to pop out to shortstop and finished things off by striking out Kolten Wong. With the trade deadline on Thursday, Benoit figures to be a popular name among available relievers. On the year, the 34-year-old reliever has a 1.88 ERA and 0.84 WHIP along with a 51:13 K:BB over 43 innings.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit walked two and struck out two while recording four outs en route to his second save of the season as the Padres downed Atlanta, 5-2 Friday night. Impact: Benoit (two saves, 1.93 ERA) has stepped into the closer's role after the Padres dealt Huston Street to the Angels, but for how long is a matter of speculation. While he is a capable closer, the trade rumors continue to swirl around San Diego, and he is often prominently mentioned.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit stumbled in his first outing after the trade of Huston Street to the Angels. While completing the top of the ninth inning, Benoit gave up one run on one hit and two walks to go with one strikeout versus the Mets on Friday. Impact: Because the putrid Padres offense couldn't put anything together in the bottom of the frame, Benoit took his second loss of the season. He's now strung together two of his worst performances of the season in his last three games, yielding four runs on five hits and four walks in three innings. No matter, he's struck out enough batters (five) during that span to sustain a pristine 10.44 K/9 on the season, and his first save situation as the main fireman should arrive sooner rather than later.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit will likely assume the Padres' closer role following the trade of Huston Street to the Angels on Friday night. Impact: A six-player swap will send Street north to Orange County, while Benoit should slot into the ninth-inning role for the Padres. It remains possible that Benoit will also be traded, but the Padres are believed to be seeking an even greater return than the four-player package they received for Street.(RotoWire, )
