    Phillies' Corey Knebel: Throws clean seventh inning

    Corey Knebel struck out two batters in a perfect seventh inning during the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Nationals.Knebel was removed from the closer role earlier in the week after a run of poor appearances, but his first outing away from the spotlight couldn't have gone much better. He was tasked with keeping the Philadelphia Phillies' deficit at two runs and did just that, getting Victor Robles to line out before striking out Lane Thomas and Juan Soto. It's unlikely that Knebel reclaims his closing job after just a single outing, but a run of similar performances could at least put him back in the saves mix.

    Phillies' Corey Knebel: Moving out of closer's role

    Interim manager Rob Thomson said Wednesday that Corey Knebel will be moved out of the closer's role for now, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.Knebel suffered a shoulder injury over the weekend but returned to the mound Tuesday against the Marlins and was charged with the blown save by allowing three unearned runs on a hit and two walks while failing to record an out. The right-hander has struggled with his command over the last few weeks, posting a 4.26 ERA, 6:7 K:BB and 2.21 WHIP in 6.1 innings over his last seven starts. He'll attempt to right the ship while pitching in lower-leverage situations, while the Philadelphia Phillies will use a closer-by-committee approach for now. Brad Hand and Seranthony Dominguez seem like the top candidates for saves.

    Phillies' Corey Knebel: Testing tight shoulder

    Corey Knebel will throw Sunday to test his tight shoulder and hopes to miss only a day or two, Todd Zolecki of reports.The issue popped up for Knebel while he warmed up in preparation to enter Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks. While it's good to see he's not too worried about the issue, players tend to skew toward the optimistic side regarding their own health. Knebel doesn't have the strongest recent health track record, as he missed all of 2019 due to Tommy John surgery and was limited to 25.2 innings last year due to a lat strain. If his optimism turns out to be unwarranted, Seranthony Dominguez looks like the best candidate to take his closer job, though the role could also go to a veteran like Brad Hand.

    Phillies' Corey Knebel: Dealing with tight shoulder

    Corey Knebel experienced tightness in his shoulder while warming up during Saturday's game against Arizona, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Knebel ultimately wasn't called upon to close the game, as the Philadelphia Phillies scored a run in the bottom of the eighth to extend their lead to 4-0, but it looks as though the veteran righty probably wouldn't have entered even if the lead remained at three runs. He'll be evaluated Sunday, with a trip to the injured list seemingly a possibility. Seranthony Dominguez's numbers suggest he deserves the first shot at the closer role should Knebel be forced to miss time, though seniority could grant Brad Hand and his 127 career saves the opportunity instead.

    Phillies' Corey Knebel: Nails down ninth save

    Corey Knebel struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his ninth save of the season in a 6-5 win over the Giants.After a couple shaky appearances to close out May, Knebel got a fresh start in June and looked sharp, picking up his first save since May 18. The right-hander is only 9-for-12 in converting save chances this season, and his 3.27 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 20:10 K:BB through 22 innings reflect his lack of dominance.
