With the Diamomdbacks this year, the right-hander is 2-3 with a 2.82 ERA in 36 relief appearances, converting 18 of 20 save opportunities. He has recorded 27 strikeouts in 38 1/3 innings and allowed only one home run this season, ranking sixth among National League relievers in homers allowed per nine innings (0.23).
