News: Casilla will share closing duties with Sergio Romo from here on out, reports. Impact: Casilla picked up the save Saturday night against the Brewers, but not before making things interesting by a run on two hits and a hit batter. Though his numbers on the season remain sterling, Casilla has been only so-so since assuming closing duties in early July following Romo's ouster. Meanwhile, Romo has pitched dramatically better since moving to middle relief, and it appears he's regained the trust of manager Bruce Bochy. Both relievers should probably be held for now, but given Romo's proven success in the closer's role prior to this season, he should be viewed as the favorite to ultimately emerge as the victor in the job battle.(RotoWire, )

News: Casilla earned the save Saturday against the Brewers, despite giving up two hits and a run. Impact: That's back-to-back saves for Casilla, who is battling teammate Sergio Romo for the Giants' closer role. Romo came on in the eighth inning with two outs and struck out the only batter he faced on three pitches to earn the hold.(RotoWire, )

News: Casilla worked around a walk to notch his 12th save with a scoreless ninth inning in a 4-1 win over Colorado on Thursday afternoon. Impact: Earlier on Thursday, San Francisco announced that Casilla and Sergio Romo will share closing duties the rest of the way, but Romo pitched a scoreless eighth inning before Casilla came on to finish it off. Expect Romo to get an opportunity some time soon, but Casilla could still be the better bet if he stays out of trouble over his next few outings.(RotoWire, )

News: Casilla will share save opportunities with Sergio Romo for the rest of the season, CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: Casilla's blown save Wednesday was his first since becoming the Giants' closer, but his 4.70 ERA over his last eight appearances is worrisome. Former closer Sergio Romo is touting a 2.08 ERA since being demoted from the closer role, so manager Bruce Bochy stated that he will use both pitchers in closing situations going forward. This obviously hurts Casilla's value in terms of seeing save opportunities.(RotoWire, )

News: Casilla (2-3) picked up the win after his fourth blown save of the season Wednesday, allowing a run on a hit and a walk Wednesday against the Rockies. Impact: Casilla has Buster Posey to thank for a walk-off home run to get him off the hook after he spoiled Tim Hudson's fantastic start. It was his first blown save since taking over as closer for the Giants. The right-hander hasn't been as sharp in August, sporting a 4.70 ERA over eight appearances.(RotoWire, )

News: Casilla gave up one hit in his inning of work, striking out two on the way to his 11th save of the season Thursday. Impact: Casilla has now tossed two clean innings in his last two outings after allowing runs in three consecutive previous appearances. Any sort of uncertainty about his role as the Giants' closer has been squashed.(RotoWire, )

News: Casilla pitched a perfect inning with two strikeouts to get the save in the Giants' 5-2 win over the Phillies on Sunday. Impact: It was Casilla's 10th save since getting the closer gig at the start of July. Sunday's save quieted any concerns that he may have lost the closer's role after Sergio Romo got the save Saturday. After allowing three runs in the last three outings, Casilla was commanding during his inning of work. His ERA still sits at 1.62 ERA despite the recent struggles.(RotoWire, )
