Casilla allowed a run on one hit with a walk and a strikeout in an inning of work en route to his 22nd save in a 9-7 win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

This wasn't the cleanest outing for the closer, but he was lucky to have entered the frame with a three-run cushion. Although only 15 of his 27 pitches were strikes, Casilla did still manage to improve to 22-for-26 in save chances.

Casilla struck out two to help record the save with a clean ninth inning Monday against Colorado.

Casilla pitched a scoreless 11th inning on one hit and a walk while striking out one to pick up his 19th save of the year Sunday at the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Casilla was protecting a one-run lead, but had to work around a single to the lead-off hitter, Yasmany Tomas, who advanced to third base with only one out. After blowing his fourth save of the year on June 1, he now has successfully converted his last seven save opportunities.

Casilla notched his 18th save of the season Friday, preserving a 6-4 lead against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Casilla bounced back after giving up three runs in a non-save situation Tuesday. It wasn't easy, as he allowed three batters to reach base before finally inducing a game-ending grounder against Peter O'Brien. Casilla's 18 saves ranks 13th among all MLB closers.

Casilla picked up his third save in as many days, retiring the final two batters in Friday's 5-4 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Bruce Bochy likely wanted to rest Casilla on Friday, but with a one-run game in the ninth, he was forced to use his closer to seal the victory. Casilla will go through stretches that frustrate his owners, but when he is pitching like he has over his last five outings (0.00 ERA with five saves), it reminds owners why he is still one of the game's better ninth inning men. That being said, he will almost assuredly be unavailable to pitch Saturday night if a save situation arises due to his recent workload.

Casilla allowed a hit and struck out three Thursday against the Pirates while notching his 16th save.

EDGE Analysis

In his second game since returning from the paternity list, Casilla recorded all of his outs via the strikeout for the first time this season. He needed 26 pitched to get through this one, giving him a total of 42 over the past two days. The Giants are at home tomorrow against the Phillies, and considering Casilla hadn't pitched in more than a week before last night, manager Bruce Bochy may elect to bypass the closer if a save chance arises.

Casilla picked up his 15th save of the season Wednesday. He allowed a hit and struck out one while closing the door on the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Jordy Mercer led off the ninth with an infield single, but Casilla promptly induced a double-play, then struck out Gregory Polanco the end the game. It was the closer's first appearance since being activated from the paternity list, and he didn't appear rusty after the week off.

Casilla will be activated from the paternity list Monday, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Casilla was placed on the paternity list Friday, and the reliever will return to action Monday, as originally planned. The Giants have already made room on the roster for Casilla, as they optioned reliever Steve Okert to Triple-A Sacramento following Sunday's victory over the Rays.

Casilla was placed on the paternity list on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

With Casilla, the Giants' primary closer, taking an undetermined amount of time off, Steven Okert was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to fill in during his absence. While a specific replacement hasn't been announced, the Giants may opt to use Cory Gearrin in save opportunities. Gearrin has been placed in multiple high leverage situations recently, picking up five holds and two wins across his last 10 outings.
