News: Axford recorded his sixth save of the year Sunday afternoon. Impact: Axford made things interesting by loading the bases in the ninth, but managed to end the game by inducing an Edwin Encarnacion ground ball. He's now recorded saves in two straight appearances since blowing and save and losing to the White Sox on April 13.(RotoWire, )

News: Axford picked up his fifth save of the season Wednesday against Detroit. Impact: Axford rebounded nicely after a rough outing Sunday against the White Sox in which he allowed two earned runs. Despite a 4.05 ERA, he remains the Cleveland closer.(RotoWire, )

News: Axford blew his first save opportunity of the season, allowing a walk and a two-run home run in just a third of an inning Sunday versus the White Sox. Impact: Axford was previously 4-for-4 in his save chances this season before letting this one slip away. However, he has not been without his typical command issues, already allowing six free passes in just 5.2 innings. Axford will need to rebound quickly if he is to hold onto the closer role in Cleveland. The Indians possess a solid slate of relievers at the back end, most notably young flame thrower Cody Allen.(RotoWire, )

News: Axford notched his fourth save of the season in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Padres. Impact: Axford has had some command issues so far (five walks in 4.1 innings) but hasn't blown a save in his four chances so far. He's got a firm grip on the closer role even with a more effective Cody Allen waiting in a setup role.(RotoWire, )
