Casilla worked around a hit for a scoreless ninth against the Mets on Thursday -- his 28th save.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants' closer hasn't been delivering a lot of clean outings lately -- Casilla has allowed baserunners in five of his last six appearances, with the lone exception being the one-out save he earned last weekend. He also blew his sixth save of the year Sunday, tying last year's total with a month-plus of regular season to go. But on the whole, Casilla's numbers look pretty much exactly like you'd expect them to, as he's maintained last year's strikeout improvement and continues to get by despite being a bit more hittable than most closers.

Casilla blew his sixth save of the season Sunday, surrendering three runs in the top of ninth inning in a 9-8 loss to the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

A day after recording one of the easiest saves of his career, Casilla was unable to get the job done against the hard-hitting Orioles. A two-out rally began with a hit, a walk, and a three-run blast off the bat of Jonathan Schoop. As his owners know, Casilla has a tendency to be very streaky, and this is the type of outing that could send him spiraling for a few days. But you take the good with the bad when owning him, and so far the results have been solid in 2016.

Casilla was brought in to record a one-out save in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

This was a gift to Casilla's fantasy owners because it looked like he wouldn't see a save opportunity with a 6-0 lead in the ninth inning. A couple of runs and a couple of base runners later and the save situation was created. Casilla came out of the pen and threw one pitch to record one out and earn his 27th save of the season.

Casilla allowed a hit and struck out two Marlins to nail down his 26th save of the season Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Outside of a poor showing on July 16 against the Padres, Casilla has been money for the last two months. Since June 12, the veteran is 14-for-15 in save chances while tallying 21 strikeouts over 19 innings. The 36-year-old Casilla is now on pace for 37 saves in 2016, which is just one shy of the career high he set a season ago.

Casilla threw a perfect 10th inning against the Phillies on Thursday en route to his 25th save of the season.

EDGE Analysis

After Denard Span's solo home run put the Giants up in the top of the frame, Casilla breezed through the heart of the Phillies' order (Aaron Altherr, Maikel Franco and Tommy Joseph), retiring the side on seven pitches. Deadline acquisition Will Smith and Sergio Romo split the eighth inning and figure to continue sharing setup duties in front of Casilla. Casilla hasn't allowed a hit in his last four appearances.

Casilla got the clean save Sunday, striking out two over his lone inning of work in a 3-1 win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Casilla continues to excel in the month of July, converting seven of the eight save opportunities presented to him. He has endured some struggles at various points during the season, but he is on pace to surpass the 38 saves he recorded in 2015. With most of the big name closers already off the trade market, Casilla appears to be safe from being supplanted as the team's closer.

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.

EDGE Analysis

Casilla has now succeeded in 20 of his 24 save chances this year, and Monday's effort marked just his seventh 1-2-3 save of the year. He has been better of late though, with eight consecutive saves dating back to June 12. He now owns a 2.94 ERA to go with a sharp 44:12 K:BB in 33.2 innings.
