News: Casilla slammed the door on the Diamondbacks on Tuesday night, tossing a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout in the Giants' 2-1 win. Impact: Casilla (16 saves, 1.86 ERA) has successfully converted 16 of 20 save opportunities, and while the Giants have recently stated he would share closing duties with Sergio Romo, he has clearly been their man when he's available.(RotoWire, )

News: Casilla struck out one during a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to earn his 15th save of the season. Impact: Sergio Romo served up a solo home run in the eighth inning, and Casilla continues to handle the closer role capably for manager Bruce Bochy. As a result, Casilla appears to be safely entrenched as the team's ninth-inning option for the stretch run.(RotoWire, )

News: Casilla picked up the save in Monday's make up against Colorado from a suspended game in May. Impact: The save technically counts as his second of the season, but it pushed his total to 14 on the season. It was also his third consecutive save since manager Bruce Bochy indicated he would split closing duties with Casilla and Sergio Romo. Romo hasn't seen a save opportunity since that statement, and he gave up the game-winning run to the Rockies in the nightcap. So it looks as if Casilla's role as the team's closer is relatively safe.(RotoWire, )
