Cincinnati Reds – The Reds continued to deploy their relievers in the toughest spots on Tuesday, as Brad Brach entered the seventh with two runners on and pitched out of the jam. That set the stage for Heath Hembree to get the eighth with the Mets’ 4-5-6 hitters due up. Hembree gave up a run but kept the Reds in front to allow Amir Garrett to come on and work around a leadoff walk to pick up his seventh save of the season. Hembree had consistently been getting the ninth inning prior to Tuesday and should still be the favorite for save chances, but we’ll keep an eye on this to see if the asterisk needs to return.

Hierarchy remains: Hembree | Brach | Garrett.

Garrett allowed a hit and recorded a strikeout in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save during Tuesday's 10-7 win at Minnesota.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Three Cincinnati relievers combined to allow five runs during the eighth inning, but Garrett came out for the ninth and only surrendered a two-out single to Nelson Cruz. The left-hander still has an ugly 8.44 ERA for the season, and Tuesday's outing was was the first time in his past four appearances that he covered a full inning.

It was the 3rd day in a row that Sims had pitched. You score 20 Runs, your starters allow 2 ER in a 3 game series and get swept.....sounds almost impossible.

Just when it was assumed that Garrett had pitched his way out of the mix for saves, Sean Doolittle and Lucas Sims both pitched today like they are perfectly content in a setup role. The Reds bullpen allowed 12 runs today, 11 of them earned. What a mess.

Garrett is making up for lost time. In his second Spring appearance, he again struck out the side. Six up....six down....six strikeouts.

Garrett is one of three current candidates to fill the vacated Reds closer job, along with Lucas Sims and Tejay Antone, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: For his part, Garrett already has the confidence and desire for the job. "To me, it's mine to lose," Garrett said Tuesday. "I'm just going to go in there and take it. Not a lot of things are earned, and nothing is given. I'm just going to go and take it." Garrett is coming off of his best season, one in which he posted a 2.45 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with 26 strikeouts in 18.1 innings. It wouldn't be a total shock if the Reds mixed-and-matched in the role, though he has been effective against both lefties and righties the last three years.
