      Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Plays 90-foot catch

      Corey Knebel (lat) played catch up to about 90 feet Wednesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.It's encouraging news for Knebel, who's been out since April 23 with a right lat strain. That being said, the righty still doesn't appear to be too close to returning, as he'll need to build up his arm and pitch in a rehab assignment before he's ready to rejoin the Los Angeles Dodgers' bullpen.

      Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Set to miss multiple months

      Corey Knebel was placed on the injured list with a lat strain Saturday and is expected to miss multiple months, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.Knebel missed Friday's game against the Padres with what was originally called an upper triceps injury. The Los Angeles Dodgers are hopeful he'll be able to pitch again this season, but the fact that had to be stated hardly paints an optimistic picture. He'd been lined up as Kenley Jansen's top deputy and had already picked up a pair of saves. That role could now go to Blake Treinen.

      Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Endures first rough outing

      Corey Knebel was tagged with a blown save Friday against the Padres as a result of allowing two runs on three hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning. Both outs he registered came by way of strikeout.Knebel entered the contest having held opponents to no runs or hits over six outings, but the right-hander faltered against a tough Padres offense. He came on in the eighth inning with the Los Angeles Dodgers up by a pair and yielded a pair of singles followed by a two-run double off the bat of Jurickson Profar. Despite the ugly appearance, Knebel figures to continue to work in high-leverage situations and could nab a few saves when the team opts to hold out closer Kenley Jansen.

      Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Earns win in relief appearance

      Corey Knebel (1-0) pitched a perfect inning with one strikeout and picked up the win in Wednesday's 4-2 victory over Colorado.The righty has been dominant in 5.1 innings pitched this season, allowing zero hits while walking one and striking out seven. Knebel struggled mightily last year in his return from Tommy John surgery, but he's once again healthy and baffling hitters with his fastball/curveball mix, which he throws at about a 50/50 split. His closer-worthy stuff and manager Dave Roberts' wavering commitment to Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning will likely result in the occasional save opportunity for Knebel, though a high strikeout rate and appearances in hold situations should make him a legitimate fantasy asset regardless of Jansen's role.

The 29-year-old has yet to give up a run in 4.1 innings of work and already has two saves and two holds to his name in five appearances.

      Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Notches first save

      Corey Knebel picked up his first save of the season, pitching a perfect ninth inning while striking out one in Sunday's win over the Rockies.Sunday was a great showing for Knebel. He got the call to close after Kenley Jansen picked up the five-out save Saturday. Knebel is not a lock for consistent save opportunities in a crowded bullpen, but he showed today that he can be a solid backup in high-leverage situations. Knebel is familiar with the role after racking up 57 saves with the Brewers. The 29-year-old could see an increase in save opportunities if Jansen struggles like he did at the end of 2020.
