Knebel went down and immediately put on the DL after the game. Looks like this is next man up. 


Actually, usage points to Albers being the next man up. Of course you never know, but you're presuming a bit too much here.

As mentioned in the March/April closer's thread, Counsell has a lot of options available to him.  Short of him coming out today and naming someone as his 'guy', I think that Barnes is likely at the head of a committee.  Though as noted above and in that thread, given the number of pitches he threw last night he's likely unavailable tonight.  It could give either Hader or Albers, even Jeffress, a shot tonight.  If they convert, perhaps Counsell will turn to that guy next time out as well.  Time will tell.

Does he get to keep the role despite blowing a save due to horrific defense?

To be fair he doesn’t even have the role. Definitely still a toss-up between him and Albers.
