Casilla allowed one run on two hits, but still earned the save in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Phillies.

Despite giving up the run, Casilla has now converted three consecutive saves since his disastrous blown save against the Marlins on July 1. After the implosion, manager Bruce Bochy said he would consider using other options in the ninth, but it appears Casilla has regained his manager's confidence and should be considered the closer going forward.

Casilla picked up his 21st save of the season Tuesday, closing the door on the Mets with a scoreless innings.

Casilla picked up a much-needed save after giving up four runs over his last two outings. It was reported that manager Bruce Bochy would mix and match in the ninth inning given the recent struggles of his closer. Tuesday's clean save should restore some confidence in Casilla, and he figures to see the majority of save opportunities until he falters again.

The Giants will mix and match in the ninth inning in the short term, with Casilla and Sergio Romo both struggling, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

It's hard to say what direction the Giants will go, but manager Bruce Bochy will likely play the matchups, as he is adept at doing from many years in the postseason. Casilla, who has given up four runs while recording just one out in his last two appearances, is still worth owning in most formats, but his stock is certainly trending down.

Casilla (general soreness) retired just one of the three batters he faced in Monday's game against the Mets.

He allowed one run on two hits, and struck out one, making his first appearance since July 1 due to an ailment the Giants have labeled as general soreness. With a 3.30 ERA and 1.40 WHIP over 30 innings this season, Casilla may be losing his grip on the closer role in San Francisco. It remains to be seen if the team will seek bullpen reinforcements via trade at the upcoming non-waiver deadline.

Casilla will not be used for a few days according to manager Bruce Bochy, Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports.

Casilla gave up three runs without recording an out Wednesday, blowing his first save (and allowing his first runs) since May 31. According to Bochy, his stuff wasn't the same due to general arm fatigue, so the team determined the best course of action will be to rest the closer for an unspecified period of time. With Casilla unavailable, look for Sergio Romo and Javier Lopez to close games based on matchups.
