While some closers will probably have 35+ save over the rest of the season, I'd guess it'll be less then a 1/3 of them considering how few closers get to 40 in a full season and a month of the season is already gone. If he took over the job full time today and all the other stars aligned for him I say about 30 the rest of the way, but everything would have to line up perfectly for him.

That all happened before the TJ surgery. There's no way you can predict he'll be as good as he was before with so little data available post surgery. Maybe he'll be that good again, but you can't count on it, not yet anyway.
