      Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Stumbles against Cards

      Kyle Barraclough gave up two solo home runs and walked a batter in 0.2 innings during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.While Sean Doolittle's meltdown later in the game drew most of the attention, Barraclough's own struggles set the stage for it. The right-hander had been cruising this spring before this outing, posting a 0.00 ERA and 5:2 K:BB through his first six innings, and if Saturday's usage is any indication, he'll begin the regular season as the Nats' seventh-inning setup man ahead of Trevor Rosenthal and Sean Doolittle, a role that could make Barraclough a valuable source of holds.

      Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Loses arbitration case

      Kyle Barraclough lost his arbitration case Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.Barraclough had filed for $2 million but will wind up making $1.725 million instead. The 28-year-old has shown flashes of upside thus far in his career and picked up 10 saves for the Marlins last season, but his strikeout rate fell to an unexciting 24.5 percent while his walk rate remained worryingly high at 13.9 percent, leading to an October trade to Washington. He's not expected to be part of the closer conversation for his new club unless Sean Doolittle struggles with injuries.

      Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Dealt to Nationals

      Kyle Barraclough was traded to Washington from Miami on Wednesday in exchange for international bonus pool money, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.Barraclough had a rough second half with the Marlins in 2018, logging a 13.50 ERA and 2.48 WHIP across 13.1 innings dating back to July 21. The right-hander missed a few weeks with back stiffness during that stretch. On the flip side, he posted a 1.28 ERA over 44 appearances in the first half and should provide the Washington Nationals with a solid middle-to-late option out of the bullpen moving forward. Barraclough still has three more years of club control on his contract.

      Marlins' Kyle Barraclough: Removed from closer role

      Manager Don Mattingly said Kyle Barraclough will be removed from the closer role, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.Barraclough has struggled mightily as of late, blowing three saves and allowing 11 runs (including two homers) with a 3:5 K:BB across his last 3.2 innings (five appearances), prompting Mattingly to turn to a closer-by-committee approach in the ninth inning while allowing the right-hander to regroup in a lower-leverage role. Drew Steckenrider and Tayron Guerrero are both options to see chances in the ninth inning while Barraclough figures things out. Given his past success, it wouldn't be surprising to see the 28-year-old Barraclough return to the late-inning mix for the stretch run if he gets back on track.

      Marlins' Kyle Barraclough: Logs sixth blown save

      Kyle Barraclough gave up four runs on two hits and two walks, including a walk-off three-run home run against the Phillies on Thursday to log his sixth blown save of the season.He came on to start the ninth inning, charged with protecting a one-run lead. Barraclough quickly allowed the tying run to score and then gave up a three-run bomb to Maikel Franco, which ended the game. He has now given up 11 runs over his last 4.1 innings (five appearances), blowing three saves and serving up three home runs over that span. His ERA has risen from 0.99 at the start of July to 3.28 after this outing. Drew Steckenrider, who pitched a perfect eighth inning Thursday and owns a 3.19 ERA on the season would be next in line if Barraclough loses the closer's job amid these struggles.
