Player Notes
Tom Wilhelmsen locked down his fifth save of the season with a perfect ninth inning in Friday's 2-0 win over the White Sox.

Advice: Wilhelmsen entered with the Mariners clinging to a 2-0 lead. He made sure that slight advantage held up, recording three outs without issue. He's now 5-for-5 in save chances and has pitched to a 3.78 ERA with a 45/23 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Wednesday that Tom Wilhelmsen is the team's closer "as we speak."

Advice: It's not a surprise, as Wilhelmsen has converted each of the club's last two save chances without much difficulty. Carson Smith is still probably the team's best reliever and perhaps their closer of the future, but he's going through a rough patch right now so it makes sense to give Wilhelmsen a shot.

Tom Wilhelmsen picked up his fourth save with a scoreless ninth inning facing the Athletics in Tuesday's 6-5 victory.

Advice: Wilhelmsen worked around a two-out Sam Fuld double as Josh Reddick lined out to end the game. The right-hander got the save on Monday as well and appears to be the Mariners' leading ninth-inning option at the moment. He's 4-for-4 in save chances with a 3.86 ERA and a 45/23 K/BB ratio in 46 2/3 innings.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that Tom Wilhelmsen would like see the save chance if one came up on Monday.

Advice: Wilhelmsen closed out the Mariners' win on Sunday, coming into the game after Carson Smith. McClendon hasn't officially anointed Wilhelmsen as the club's new ninth-inning man, but it does appear he's the preferred option at the moment over the struggling Smith. Pick him up in fantasy leagues if he's still on your waiver wire.

Tom Wilhelmsen earned his third save of the 2015 season in the Mariners' win over the White Sox on Sunday.

Advice: And the other two saves came in extra-inning situations. Carson Smith is struggling and Fernando Rodney has been pushed off the 40-man roster, so Wilhelmsen could vulture some more save opportunities down the stretch. "We had better results today," Mariners skipper Lloyd McClendon told MLB.com after Sunday's win. "We'll see. Right now we're going to match up the best way we can and put guys in the best position you possibly can for them to succeed."
