    Marlins' Richard Bleier: Takes loss in relief

    Richard Bleier (2-1) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Nationals after allowing three runs on two hits across two-thirds of an inning.Bleier entered this contest riding a 12-appearance scoreless streak, but that run came to an end Tuesday in what was one of his poorer outings of the entire campaign. Despite not having problems finding the strike zone -- 11 of his 16 pitches were strikes -- he couldn't get the job done and allowed three of the five batters he faced to reach base. Despite the poor outing Tuesday, Bleier still has a 3.00 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP on the season. The latter figure would be a career-best mark for the southpaw if he's able to sustain it until the end of the season.

    Marlins' Richard Bleier: Takes scoreless streak into break

    Richard Bleier has not allowed a run over his last 10 appearances and 10 innings.The veteran is the Miami Marlins' top left-handed option in the bullpen, and Bleier has been very effective in that role this season, posting a 2.43 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 27:2 K:BB through 33.1 innings with two wins and 11 holds. If Miami does some house cleaning at the trade deadline, that could make the 34-year-old a target for a contender looking to bolster its relief corps.

    Marlins' Richard Bleier: Fans side for second win

    Richard Bleier (2-0) picked up the win in Tuesday's victory over the Diamondbacks, striking out the side in a perfect inning of work.Anthony Bass started the eighth inning with the Miami Marlins ahead 3-2, but the right-hander coughed up a run and loaded the bases without recording an out before getting the hook. Enter Bleier, who fanned Josh Rojas, Wyatt Mathisen and Pavin Smith to keep the game tied and position himself to become the pitcher of record when Miami blew the game open in the bottom of the frame. Bleier hasn't exactly been consistent as the top lefty in the bullpen, serving up four homers in 12 innings to fuel a 4.50 ERA, but his 11:0 K:BB is sharp and he has two holds in addition to his two wins over 13 appearances.

    Marlins' Richard Bleier: Could be in mix for saves

    Richard Bleier could be in the mix for saves early in the season based on matchups, Craig Mish of reports.Anthony Bass began the regular season as Miami's primary closer, but he failed to convert on either of his save chances and allowed six runs in 2.1 innings. Manager Don Mattingly said that Yimi Garcia and Dylan Floro should be the top options for save chances going forward. However, Mattingly also said that Bleier could serve as the closer in some situations that are favorable to left-handed pitchers. Bleier has made four relief appearances to begin the season and allowed two runs while striking out three in four innings.

    Marlins' Richard Bleier: Appears headed for bullpen role

    Richard Bleier appears to have won a spot on the Miami Marlins' Opening Day roster, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.The 33-year-old has fairly consistently out-produced his FIP over his big-league career, posting ERAs lower than 2.20 in four of the last five seasons, and Bleier's main competition for high-leverage work against left-handed batters will come from erratic veteran Ross Detwiler. Bleier's lack of strikeouts limits his fantasy upside, but he could prove to be a semi-useful source of holds in 2021.

    Marlins' Richard Bleier: Reaches deal with Miami

    Richard Bleier signed a one-year contract with the Miami Marlins on Friday to avoid arbitration.The 33-year-old was acquired by Miami during the first week of the season and had a 2.63 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 7:4 K:BB with six holds over 13.2 innings. Bleier could have a high-leverage role in 2021 but is unlikely to be a factor in the ninth inning.

    Marlins' Richard Bleier: Dealt first loss

    Richard Bleier (1-1) struck out one and allowed one run on one hit over two-thirds of an inning to take the loss against the Rays on Friday.Bleier was removed in the eighth inning with two outs and a man on second in favor of Brad Boxberger as he figured to be the better pitching matchup for the righty Yandy Diaz. Unfortunately, Boxberger was unable to get the job done, giving up an RBI single to put the Rays up 1-0. The lefty has given up three runs in his last 1.1 innings after chucking 6.1 scoreless to start the year, and despite his latest struggles, Bleier should still be in the mix for late-inning work.
