Oakland Athletics right-hander Liam Hendriks seems on his way to earning top Player Rater honors among relief pitchers with his 13 saves, 32 strikeouts and exquisite marks in both ERA and WHIP.

Diaz's save on Wednesday was merely his fourth of the season, and for the second consecutive evening, all three of the outs came on strikeouts.
