News: Diekman imploded Monday, allowing a grand slam to Dan Uggla in the ninth inning to take the loss and a blown save. Impact: Diekman had strung together 4.1 scoreless innings before collapsing Monday. The reliever was being used in a save situation (with a couple of the other Philadelphia relievers unavailable), and should be given the chance to rebound from his bad outing.(RotoWire, )

News: Diekman has emerged as manager Ryne Sandberg's most trusted reliever thus far this season, the Phialdelphia Inquirer reports. Impact: Diekman has appeared in four games and has a 4:3 K:BB ratio in 3.2 innings. He is one of the harder throwing lefties in baseball, but still needs to reduce his walks to become a truly dominant bullpen arm. If he continues to get work in high leverage spots, Diekman could be a solid source of holds this year.(RotoWire, )
