  • Padres' Brandon Kintzler: Inks MiLB deal with Friars

    Kintzler signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Wednesday, Jesse Rogers of reports. Kintzler hasn't seen game action since being cut loose by the Phillies last year, but he'll now receive a chance to earn a late-season roster spot in San Diego. The veteran right-hander posted a 6.37 ERA over 29 appearances for the Phillies last season, though he was effective over the previous two campaigns with a 2.55 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 62:24 K:BB across 81.1 innings.

  • Brandon Kintzler: Let loose by Philadelphia

    Kintzler was released by the Phillies on Monday, Destiny Lugardo of Phillies Nation reports. Kintzler was DFA'd by the Phillies last Friday and he's now not surprisingly declined a minor-league assignment after going unclaimed on waivers. While he's posted a subpar 6.37 ERA and 1.79 WHIP this season, the veteran right hander still holds a strong track record that could help him land with another club before 2021 comes to a close.

  • Phillies' Brandon Kintzler: Designated for assignment

    Kintzler was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Friday, Todd Zolecki of reports. Kintzler hadn't allowed any earned runs in five innings across his last four appearances, but he'll be cast off the 40-man roster after the Phillies strengthened their bullpen Friday. The 36-year-old has posted a 6.37 ERA and 1.79 WHIP this season, and it's not clear whether he'd accept an outright assignment if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

  • Phillies' Brandon Kintzler: Will serve as opener

    Kintzler will serve as the opener for Sunday's game against Boston, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Aaron Nola was originally projected to start Sunday, but his placement on the COVID-19 injured list forced the team to change plans. Kintzler will likely throw an inning or two prior to giving way to a bulk reliever.

  • Phillies' Brandon Kintzler: Reinstated from injured list

    Kintzler (neck) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Thursday. Kintzler began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Lehigh Valley last Friday, and he tossed two scoreless innings across two appearances in the minors. The right-hander posted an 8.50 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in 18 innings across 20 big-league appearances to begin the year, and he'll rejoin the Phillies' bullpen after right-hander Neftali Feliz was designated for assignment Thursday.

  • Phillies' Brandon Kintzler: Kicks off rehab assignment

    Kintzler (neck) made his first rehab appearance for Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday, walking one and allowing no hits over a scoreless inning of relief. Kintzler has been on the shelf for just under three weeks with a strained neck. The Phillies may want to see him make one or two more appearances for Lehigh Valley before bringing him back from the 10-day injured list.

  • Phillies' Brandon Kintzler: Heads to injured list

    Kintzler was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a strained neck, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The veteran reliever presumably suffered the injury during Sunday's outing, in which he allowed three runs while recording just two outs. The 2021 season as a whole has been a struggle for the righty, who has an 8.50 ERA in 18 innings of work. It's unclear how severe Kintzler's neck strain is or whether he'll require longer than 10 days on the IL.

  • Phillies' Brandon Kintzler: Earns win in relief

    Kintzler (1-0) allowed a hit and a walk in 1.2 scoreless innings pitched, striking out one and earning the victory in Wednesday's 5-3 win over St. Louis. The veteran went a week without game action after yielding three runs to the Giants on April 21 and appears to have benefited from the time off. Five of Kintzler's seven appearances have been scoreless, but his two bad outings have inflated his ERA to 5.87 through 7.2 innings. The 36-year-old lacks elite stuff at this point in his career, though he generates enough soft contact with his sinker to navigate through opposing lineups and record outs in the middle innings of games.

  • Phillies' Brandon Kintzler: Wins roster spot

    Kintzler was informed he'd won an Opening Day roster spot Friday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. Kintzler was in camp as merely a non-roster invitee, but it would have been tough for him to fail to win a job coming off a season in which he saved 12 games while recording a 2.22 ERA. He looked strong this spring, allowing one earned run in 8.2 innings while striking out nine batters, leaving little doubt he deserved to break camp with the team. He's not a favorite to earn saves for the Phillies this season but isn't too far down the depth chart should the top few options struggle or get injured.

  • Phillies' Brandon Kintzler: Clear shot at bullpen spot

    Kintzler's bullpen spot appears to be very safe despite the fact that he's in camp as a non-roster invitee, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports. Looking at Kintzler's 12 saves and 2.22 ERA for the Marlins last season, it's something of a surprise the veteran had to settle for a minor-league deal. His underlying numbers weren't nearly so convincing, however, as his 13.9 percent strikeout rate and 10.9 percent walk rate were both poor, and his 57.3 percent groundball rate, while strong, wouldn't typically be enough to overcome them. Kintzler appears to be firmly in the Phillies' plans this season, however, especially as he's reportedly throwing harder than he did last year. He isn't a favorite to save games at the moment, but he has plenty of experience in the role and could be called on at some point if the Phillies' top relievers struggle.

  • Phillies' Brandon Kintzler: Signs minor-league contract

    Kintzler signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Wednesday, Jesse Rogers of reports. Kintzler has had two of the best seasons of his career over the past two years. He converted on 13 of his 17 save chances while posting a 2.55 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 81.1 innings across 86 relief appearances with the Cubs and Marlins. The 36-year-old reportedly turned down a major-league offer to return to Miami in 2021, and he'll instead compete for a roster spot with the Phillies during spring training.

  • Brandon Kintzler: Club option declined

    Kintzler's $4 million club option was declined by the Marlins on Friday. Kintzler served as the Marlins' primary closer in 2020 as he posted a career-best 2.22 ERA while converting on 12 of his 14 save opportunities during his first season with Miami. The 36-year-old has pitched effectively over the past two years as he now prepares for free agency.

  • Marlins' Brandon Kintzler: Earns save against Cubs

    Kintzler fired one scoreless inning Friday to earn the save in Game 2 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Cubs. He allowed one hit and no walks while striking out three. Kintzler's ninth-inning outing got off to a rough start when he gave up a double to Jason Heyward to begin the frame. However, the 36-year-old struck out the next three hitters to end the game with his sinker that painted the edge of the strike zone. Kintzler should be called on in save situations during the NLDS against Atlanta after recording 12 saves with a 2.22 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 24.1 innings during the regular season.

  • Marlins' Brandon Kintzler: Nabs 12th save

    Kintzler walked two batters in the 10th inning of Friday's game against the Yankees but ultimately got the job done for his 12th save of the season. Kintzler had to face DJ LeMahieu with the bases loaded and one out after walking two of the first three batters in the 10th. The 36-year-old was able to induce a chopper towards second base in which Miguel Rojas was able to glove, step on the bag and throw to first for the 6-3 double play to end the game. The save tied Kintzler with Josh Hader for the most in the National League while also punching the Marlins a ticket to the postseason for the first time since 2003. This season has been a remarkable story for Kintzler, who has a career-best 2.22 ERA and double-digit saves for the first time since 2017.

  • Marlins' Brandon Kintzler: Grabs 11th save

    Kintzler recorded his 11th save of the season in Thursday's 4-2 win over Atlanta, giving up one hit and one walk over two scoreless innings. He struck out three. The Marlins had a shutout going until Brad Boxberger ran into trouble in the eighth inning, loading the bases with nobody out, and manager Don Mattingly decided to take no chances and brought in his closer. Kintzler did allow two inherited runners to score, but he shut the door on Atlanta after that. It was his second save in as many appearances after going more than two weeks without one earlier in the month, but he might need to nail down one or two more if the Marlins are going to clinch a playoff berth over the final days of the season.

  • Marlins' Brandon Kintzler: Notches 10th save

    Kintzler worked around two hits and a walk to throw a scoreless seventh inning and earn the save in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals. He struck out one batter. This one was not pretty, but the team pitched around Juan Soto and Kintzler ultimately got out of the jam by striking out Kurt Suzuki. Kintzler lacks the swing-and-miss dominance of a traditional closer, but he has gotten the job done this season by keeping the ball on the ground. At this point it seems like a lock that the Marlins will pick up Kintzler's $4 million option for 2021.

  • Marlins' Brandon Kintzler: Blows another save

    Kintzler (2-3) allowed two hits and two walks while surrendering an earned run to blow the save Monday against the Braves. However, he did earn the win. Kintzler came on in the ninth inning to protect a 4-3 lead, but immediately coughed it up by allowing a solo home run to Adam Duvall. He got into more trouble, loading the bases with one out, before inducing a double play to escape with the game tied. Though he earned a win thanks to Miami's offense in the 10th inning, Kintzler has now allowed an earned run and blown a save in each of his past two appearances. He's been strong overall, maintaining a 3.31 ERA across 16.1 innings, though he has just an 8:6 K:BB.

  • Marlins' Brandon Kintzler: Falters vs. Rays

    Kintzler (1-3) blew a save and took the loss against the Rays on Sunday, allowing two runs (one earned) on a hit and a walk across two-thirds of an inning. He did not record a strikeout. Kintzler was called on to pitch the bottom of the 10th after the Marlins took a 4-3 lead in the top half of the inning. Joey Wendle began the frame as the runner on second base and quickly scored on Ji-Man Choi's double. Choi would come across to score the winning run on Brandon Lowe's sacrifice fly three batters later. Despite the performance Saturday, Kintzler still holds a strong 2.93 ERA and should continue to receive the bulk of save chances going forward.

  • Marlins' Brandon Kintzler: Earns ninth save

    Kintzler needed just one out as he recorded his ninth save in a 7-3 win over the Rays on Saturday. Kintzler was called upon with two outs in the ninth inning after Brandon Leibrandt loaded the bases and was unable to close the door. The veteran righty needed just two pitches to get Joey Wendle to ground out and pick up the save. Kintzler is tied for second in baseball with nine saves and is sporting a career-best 2.45 ERA across 14.2 innings in 2020.

  • Marlins' Brandon Kintzler: Secures eighth save

    Kintzler had one strikeout and didn't allow a baserunner in a scoreless ninth inning to record the save in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jays. The veteran righty needed only seven pitches to put down the Blue Jays in order and earn his eighth save of the season. Kintzler has yet to blow a save opportunity and has a 2.51 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 8:3 K:BB across 14.1 innings this season.
