Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Having strong spring
Bass has posted a 7:1 K:BB through six Grapefruit League innings this spring.
The veteran right-hander split 2022 between the Marlins and Blue Jays and had a sub-2.00 ERA at each stop, wrapping up his campaign with a 1.54 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and career highs in wins (four) and holds (23). Bass figured to be one of the primary high-leverage options in the Toronto bullpen this season, and his spring performance suggests he's ready for Opening Day.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Toronto picking up option
The Blue Jays will exercise Bass' $3 million club option for 2023 on Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The veteran right-hander was acquired from the Marlins at the trade deadline and will stick with the Blue Jays in 2023. Bass finished the year with a 1.54 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 73:20 K:BB across 70.1 innings, and he should fill a high-leverage role again for Toronto next year.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Packaged to Toronto in deal
The Blue Jays acquired Bass and right-hander Zach Pop from the Marlins on Tuesday in exchange for infielder Jordan Groshans, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Bass arrives in Toronto in the midst of an exceptional 20-appearance run in which he submitted an 0.46 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 21:4 K:BB in 19.2 innings while gathering six holds. Though he won't be a threat to Jordan Romano's role as the Blue Jays' closer, Bass should provide an upgrade over the team's existing setup options. He'll also be more than a rental piece for the Blue Jays, as his contract contains an affordable $3 million team option for 2023.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Anthony Bass: Blows save, picks up win
Bass (2-3) blew the save, but picked up the win anyway in Sunday's 6-5 victory over Pittsburgh, allowing two runs on two hits while striking out three and walking none over one inning.
Bass entered the game in the ninth with a 4-2 lead, but allowed a two-run single to Yoshi Tsutsugo that tied the game. Thankfully for Bass, his offense took the lead again in the 10th inning, which gave him the blown save but also the win. Bass has seen three save chances this season, all of which have resulted in blown saves, but he continues to be a reliable arm in lower leverage situations (15 holds). He will take a 1.51 ERA into his next appearance.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Anthony Bass: Notches 14th hold
Bass struck out two in a perfect seventh inning Friday to record his 14th hold of the season in a win over the Mets.
The right-hander reeled off his 11th straight scoreless appearance in impressive fashion. Bass might be Miami's most reliable reliever at the moment, posting a 0.54 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 13:2 K:BB through 16.2 innings since the beginning of June, but he hasn't had a save since 2020 and manager Don Mattingly seems more comfortable using the 34-year-old in a setup role....

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Collects seventh hold
Bass struck out two over 1.2 perfect innings Sunday to record his seventh hold of the season in a loss to the Padres.
Marlins manager Don Mattingly elected to use current closer Anthony Bender in the sixth inning to protect a 2-0 lead, and after he got the job done, Bass entered the game to shepherd the lead into the eighth. Unfortunately for Miami, Cole Sulser wound up blowing the save in the ninth. Bass is among the MLB leaders in holds so far, sitting two back of Devin Williams, and he's been scored upon in only two of his 14 appearances to begin the season, leaving the 34-year-old journeyman with a 1.23 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and 16:3 K:BB through 14.2 innings....

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Takes loss Friday
Bass (0-1) gave up a run on a hit and a walk in two-thirds of an inning to take the loss Friday against the Giants.
Anthony Bender blew the save in the ninth inning, but Bass fared no better in the 10th, allowing the winning run to cross the plate on an Austin Slater walkoff double. Bass is in the late-inning mix for the Marlins, but after going 0-for-4 on save chances in 2021, he remains a risky play for anyone looking for help in that category.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Anthony Bass: Could see early save chances
Bass is an option to close for the Marlins at the beginning of the season with Dylan Floro delayed by a hip issue, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Floro was expected to be the ninth-inning man for Miami to begin the season, but he has yet to appear in a Grapefruit League game while dealing with hip soreness. Of the remaining options for saves, Bass has the most experience, recording 12 saves for the Mariners and Blue Jays between 2019 and 2020, but Anthony Bender is viewed as having the best stuff, while Richard Bleier could also see work against left-handers at the end of games. "I think we're going to be more of a mix-and-match club," manager Don Mattingly said Friday. "We're not sitting here with Mariano [Rivera] or Kenley [Jansen] or these dudes that you say, 'This is my ninth-inning guy, he gets the ball every time.' That might develop like that, but right now, I don't think we're there." While Mattingly may talk in terms of a committee, his track record suggests he much prefers having one set closer, so if Bass or Bender have a quick start to the season in the role, they may well end up keeping it for awhile....

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Charged with loss Sunday
Bass (1-6) allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and struck out the only batter he retired as he took the loss versus the Yankees on Sunday.
The right-hander allowed two of the three batters he faced in the eighth inning to get on base, and Richard Bleier proceeded to allow both inherited runners to score. The loss was Bass's first since July 9, when he worked as an opener. The 33-year-old hadn't given up a run in 6.1 innings since that appearance prior to Sunday. He has a 3.79 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 38:17 K:BB with 12 holds and four blown saves in 47 appearances, but he could be in the mix for saves after Yimi Garcia was traded to Houston.... See More ...

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Takes loss as opener
Bass (1-5) took the loss Friday, giving up one run on one hit while striking out two in the first inning as the Marlins were downed 5-0 by Atlanta.
Making his first career appearance as an opener, the right-hander served up a solo shot to Freddie Freeman, and a slumbering Miami offense never climbed out of that early hole. Bass continues to struggle with consistency, getting tagged for runs in four of his last 10 games, and he sports a 4.28 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 31:15 K:BB through 33.2 innings on the year as he falls further out of the high-leverage mix for the Marlins....

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Starting bullpen game
Bass will start Friday's game versus Atlanta, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
The right-hander will start Friday's contest as manager Don Mattingly employs a bullpen game after starter Zach Thompson (illness) was scratched. Bass won't provide much length given he hasn't pitched more than one inning during any appearance this season. He has a 4.13 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 29:15 K:BB across 32.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Anthony Bass: Stuck with loss Sunday
Bass (1-4) gave up a run on one hit and three walks in two-thirds of an inning in Sunday's extra-inning loss to Atlanta.
The right-hander had a rather bizarre appearance in the 10th inning. He intentionally walked two of the first three batters, getting initial runner Austin Riley out on a throw for the second out. Bass then loaded the bases with one more intentional walk to Kevan Smith to get to the pitcher's spot in the order. Atlanta sent pitcher Max Fried up as a pinch hitter, and he delivered a walkoff single to stick Bass with the loss. To make matters worse, the run he allowed counted as an earned run and lifted his ERA to 4.40 with a 1.27 WHIP through 30.2 innings this year. The right-hander has 10 holds and four blown saves, but he should continue to see high-leverage work despite some inconsistency.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Anthony Bass: Notches ninth hold
Bass retired the only batter he faced to end the seventh inning Friday, recording his ninth hold of the season in a win over Atlanta.
Entering with two outs and the tying run at third base, Bass got Ozzie Albies to fly out and end the threat. The veteran right-hander has looked much more comfortable in a setup role than he did at the beginning of the year as Miami's closer -- since picking up his first hold May 6, Bass has a 2.08 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB over 13 innings....

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Handed extra-inning loss Sunday
Bass (1-3) allowed an unearned run on a hit and a walk with two strikeouts in one inning during Sunday's extra-inning loss to Milwaukee.
Bass intentionally walked Daniel Vogelbach to pitch to Tyrone Taylor, who promptly hit a go-ahead RBI single. Miami's offense was unable to bail out Bass in the bottom of the 10th. The right-hander carries a 5.40 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 9:5 K:BB across 11.2 innings this season. He began the year as the closer, but with three blown saves early on, Bass yielded ninth-inning duties to Yimi Garcia, who pitched a scoreless inning with three strikeouts in a tied game Sunday....

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Picks up first hold
Bass gave up a hit and a walk in a scoreless eighth inning to record his first hold of the season in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.
It wasn't pretty, as Bass threw only eight of 15 pitches for strikes, but he was able to get the job done. The veteran righty has a 1.08 ERA over 8.1 innings since spitting the bit on the closer role, but his 5:3 K:BB over that stretch suggests he's still not a great fit for high-leverage work....
