    • Clippard was called upon to protect a four-run lead in the ninth inning Sunday and promptly gave up three runs on two walks and a Jay Bruce homer before striking out the side to preserve a 9-8 win over the Reds. He also walked a third batter after the home run. Clippard hadn't gotten any work since last Sunday, an outing in which he was also tagged for three runs, so his first week as the Diamondbacks' closer hasn't exactly gone according to plan. If he doesn't start stringing together some clean innings, manager Chip Hale may turn to Daniel Hudson or another reliever to handle ninth-inning duties instead.

    • Clippard was pulled from Sunday's game with one out in the ninth inning after allowing three runs on two hits and a walk. While Clippard got the first save opportunity of the post-Brad Ziegler era, he got the hook after allowing the Dodgers to get within one run, which opened the door for Jake Barrett to nail down his second career save. Daniel Hudson, meanwhile, pitched the eighth inning, which would indicate that he (not Barrett) is next in line for saves if Clippard can't get back on track. Clippard has had a fine season overall, striking batters out at a 29.2 percent clip, and hasn't given up a home run in nearly six weeks.

    • Clippard will likely become the closer for the Diamondbacks in the wake of Brad Ziegler's trade to the Red Sox on Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports reports. Clippard has provided a solid relief role for his club this season, posting a 3.06 ERA with 39 strikeouts over 32.1 innings of work. With Ziegler out of town, he will go back to his role as closer, where he spent some time at during last season with the A's and the Mets. In his career Clippard has only converted 54 saves out of 94 opportunities, and the Diamondbacks could choose to use Daniel Hudson as the closer if Clippard can't finish games.

    • Clippard pitched 1.2 innings on Wednesday with four strikeouts and just one hit allowed, but that hit was a walk-off home run by Houston's George Springer. The home run came in the 11th inning and was the third Clippard has allowed this season. Despite allowing the walk-off, the veteran reliever has been solid for the Diamondbacks, posting a 2.49 ERA and 10.8 K/9. If he keeps the ERA under 3.00, it will be his fourth straight season with such a mark.
