CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Emmanuel Clase leads the major leagues in saves with 20 but manager Terry Francona admitted Thursday he may be using the All-Star closer too much.

Clase, 25, has pitched in 31 of the team’s 61 games and has fanned 26 in 30 innings.

Clase worked 72.2 innings in 77 games a year ago, piling up 42 saves for the division champs.

The Guardians wrap up a 3-game series tonight against Boston, then the Houston Astros come to town Friday for a 3-game set.
