Rotowire: May 3 / 11:58p ET
News: Atchison got his third hold of the season Sunday against the Blue Jays, retiring the two batters he faced to put out a rally.
Impact: Atchison had a couple of ugly outings last week against the Royals and Tigers, but he's been a reliable option for the club more often than not. Meanwhile, Bryan Shaw was used earlier in the game in a similar situation and also earned a hold. He and Shaw are the two most likely alternatives to Cody Allen, who gave up another run Sunday.
