Chicago Cubs RP Tommy Hunter recorded the final two outs of a 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers to log a save in his team debut Saturday, Aug. 1.
Fantasy Tip: Hector Rondon is the primary closer, but he was likely unavailable after pitching the previous three days. Jason Motte then faltered in the ninth, opening the door for Hunter. Keep an eye on the situation, but there is a chance Hunter could earn some save chances on days Rondon can't pitch.
