News: Frieri will remain the Angels' closer according to manager Mike Scioscia, MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez reports. Impact: Frieri blew his second save of the season Wednesday, and has struggled mightily during the month of April. Most closers who cash in this type of performance would be removed from the role by now, but Scioscia appears to be maintaining his confidence in the veteran. One more outing like this however, and Scioscia may be left with no choice but to turn to the likes of Joe Smith.(RotoWire, )

News: Frieri blew his second save of the season Wednesday, allowing four runs (including a home run) on three hits in just 0.1 innings pitched. Impact: Manager Mike Scioscia yanked Frieri from the game after a Jayson Werth two-run double tied the game at four, but it was too late, as an Adam LaRoche single off Fernado Salas gave the Nationals the walk-off win. Frieri has been absolutely awful this season, as he has now allowed five home runs in 8.2 innings pitched. Owners in need of saves might do well to add Joe Smith on a speculative basis, as it seems pretty likely Frieri has thrown his last pitch as the Angels' closer—at least for the time being.(RotoWire, )

News: Frieri recorded an adventurous save Monday against the Nationals, as he allowed a solo home run and a walk, but struck out the side to nail down the victory. Impact: Frieri put his strikeout prowess on display Monday, as he now has 11 in 8.1 innings pitched, but the home runs are a bit concerning, as he has now surrendered four in his first nine appearances.(RotoWire, )

News: Frieri suffered his first blown save of the season Monday, allowing two runs on four hits in just 0.1 innings in a loss against the A's. Impact: With one on and one out in the ninth, Frieri surrendered a pinch-hit two-run homer to John Jaso, which spoiled a terrific Hector Santiago performance, and robbed the Angels of a victory. Frieri has now given up three home runs in six appearances this season, after finishing 2013 with a career-high 1.4 HR/9.(RotoWire, )

News: Frieri earned his first save of the season against the Mariners on Wednesday. Impact: It was actually the first save opportunity of the season for the Angels. Frieri did start out a little shaky -- he walked Justin Smoak -- but he also had a strikeout and did not allow any hits. It was not a perfect save but it was a solid outing.(RotoWire, )
