  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Loses hold of closer's role

    Strickland struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday in the Reds' 10-2 loss to the Mets. Manager David Bell said prior to the contest that Strickland will be moved out of the closer's role and will be deployed in different scenarios as the Reds look for him to regain top form, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The role change comes after Strickland blew his fourth save of the season in Sunday's loss to the Brewers while surrendering at least one run for the fourth time in his last five appearances. Though Bell didn't formally name a new closer, Alexis Diaz is the most logical candidate to serve as the lead option in what could be a committee approach to save situations. Strickland's usage Wednesday in the final inning of a blowout loss would seem to suggest that his next few opportunities will come in low-leverage spots.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Secures seventh save

    Strickland earned the save over the Marlins on Monday, pitching one inning and allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out two batters. Strickland was activated from the bereavement list early Monday and was immediately thrust back into closing duties. He came on in the ninth inning with the Reds holding a 3-0 lead and quickly ran into trouble, allowing each of the first two batters he faced to reach base. However, Strickland struck out the following two hitters before allowing a run-scoring single, and he was able to close out the contest on a flyout. The veteran has seven saves on the season, and he appears to be manager David Bell's closer of choice in spite of an unsettling 5.79 ERA and 1.63 WHIP.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Rejoins roster

    Strickland (personal) was activated from the bereavement list Monday. Strickland left the team July 29 to tend to a personal matter, but he has rejoined the club and will be available out of the Reds' bullpen moving forward. Strickland was operating as Cincinnati's closer when he landed on the bereavement list, so chances are he will reclaim that role.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Lands on bereavement list

    Strickland (personal) was placed on the bereavement list Friday. Strickland picked up two saves this week before allowing three runs to take a blown save and a loss Thursday against the Marlins, and he'll now step away from the Reds due to an unspecified personal situation. The right-hander can remain on the bereavement list for 3-7 days, so he should rejoin the team next week. Alexis Diaz should operate as Cincinnati's primary closer in the meantime.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Picks up save Wednesday

    Strickland earned a save against the Marlins on Wednesday, allowing one hit in a scoreless ninth inning. Strickland came on in the ninth inning to protect a two-run lead and overcame a leadoff single to secure the save. The right-hander has picked up a save twice in the past four days after failing to record any saves through the first 23 days of July. Cincinnati doesn't have a clearly defined closer, but Strickland appears to be the leading candidate to close things out when the opportunity arises.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Earns fifth save

    Strickland picked up the save Sunday against St. Louis, tossing a perfect ninth inning in a 6-3 victory. Strickland got Nolan Arenado, Nolan Gorman and Tommy Edman to pop out in foul territory and needed just nine pitches to close out the game. It was his first save since June 28 and first save opportunity since blowing consecutive chances at the beginning of July. He and Alexis Diaz will likely continue to receive the bulk of the save chances for Cincinnati.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Serves up three-run blast

    Strickland allowed three runs on three hits -- including a home run -- over one inning Saturday against the Cardinals. He did not record a strikeout. Lars Nootbaar turned the game into a laugher with his three-run shot off Strickland in the eighth inning. The 33-year-old Strickland remains tied for the team lead in saves with four, but he now has a 5.40 ERA and 1.65 WHIP this season. Manager David Bell figures to turn to Alexis Diaz and other younger players for saves more in the second half.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Blows second save

    Strickland gave up a run on two hits in an inning of relief to blow his second save of the season in Wednesday's 8-3 extra-inning loss to the Mets. Tasked with protecting a 3-2 lead in the ninth inning, Strickland instead gave up a run-scoring double to Starling Marte to send the game to extras, when Dauri Moreta completely imploded. Strickland has blown his last two save chances and has a 5.34 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 26:18 K:BB through 28.2 innings on the year, but Cincinnati doesn't have a clear alternative for closing situations at the moment.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Collects second win Tuesday

    Strickland (2-2) picked up the win in Tuesday's 1-0 victory over the Mets, pitching a perfect ninth inning without a walk or a strikeout. The right-hander entered a scoreless tie in the top of the ninth and needed only nine pitches (seven strikes) to knife through the bottom of the Mets' order. Strickland then got rewarded when Mike Moustakas brought home Tommy Pham with a sacrifice fly in the Reds' half of the frame. Strickland has two wins and two saves in his last four appearances, but the other win came as a result of a blown save. Despite his current assignment as Cincinnati's closer, his job security seems very low -- he carries a 5.00 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB through nine innings since the beginning of June, and that ERA doesn't account for three unearned runs.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Notches another save

    Strickland picked up the save Tuesday against the Cubs. He allowed one hit and zero walks while striking out one over one scoreless inning. Strickland has now earned both of the Reds' last two saves and three of the team's last four. Granted it took injuries to Tony Santillan (back), Alexis Diaz (biceps) and Lucas Sims (back) to get him there, but for his part Strickland has pitched well since the end of April. Diaz may return as soon as this weekend, but manager David Bell could opt to reward Strickland for the stability he has provided lately and keep him in the ninth inning.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Looks like primary closer

    Manager David Bell intimated Sunday that Strickland is the Reds' preferred closing option, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "Hunter is definitely somebody that likes [closing games]," Bell said. "He thrives on it. In some ways, I think the bigger the situation, the better pitcher he's going to be. It may not always be the ninth, but I'm definitely aware of that and it works in his favor to keep getting those opportunities." Alexis Diaz (biceps) and Tony Santillan (back) recently joined Lucas Sims (back) on the injured list, with their absences thrusting Strickland into a more prominent role out of necessity. Strickland, who claimed the Reds' most recent save chance in Friday's win over the Giants, looks like he could operate as the team's primary ninth-inning option, at least until the Reds add some healthy arms back into the mix. Of the three injured relievers, Diaz looks to be the closest to a return; he threw a bullpen session Sunday and could be activated from the IL on Friday when first eligible.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Notches third save

    Strickland saved Friday's 4-2 win against the Giants, recording a walk and strikeout apiece in a scoreless ninth inning. With Alexis Diaz (biceps) and Tony Santillan (back) both sidelined, manager David Bell turned to Strickland for the save and the righty delivered against his former team. The 33-year-old was able to work around a two-out walk and has now logged each of Cincinnati's last two saves, though he possesses an uninspiring 5.11 ERA and 1.74 WHIP with 18 walks and 24 strikeouts in 24.2 innings.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Picks up second save

    Strickland earned a save against the Diamondbacks on Monday, pitching a perfect ninth inning during which he struck out one batter. The Reds have deployed a variety of closers this season, with five different pitchers notching at least one save. Alexis Diaz was the ninth-inning option of choice the day prior, but manager David Bell turned to Strickland on Monday with Cincinnati up by a run. The veteran came through to earn the save, needing only 12 pitches to retire the side in order. Strickland has previous closing experience -- he saved 14 games for San Francisco in 2018 -- so it's feasible that he could eventually move to the front of the pack for the Reds' closer role. However, the right-hander hasn't exactly impressed this season, posting a 5.73 ERA, 1.86 WHIP and ugly 21:17 K:BB across 22 innings.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Earns first save of season

    Strickland picked up the save Wednesday against the Cubs. He allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out one over one inning. With Lucas Sims (back) on the 15-day injured list, Strickland earned his first save chance of the season. The veteran was shaky and allowed the tying run to reach third base, but he ultimately got the job done by striking out Christopher Morel. Tony Santillan, Alexis Diaz and Art Warren have all registered saves in Sims' recent absence, but the trio served as set-up men for Strickland on Wednesday. Cincinnati's closing situation will likely continue to be handled by a committee until Sims returns to the team.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Rough start continues

    Strickland allowed a run on two hits and two walks over one inning during Thursday's loss to the Padres, pitching with a three-run deficit in the seventh inning. At one point Strickland was considered to be a candidate to close for the Reds, but he has a 9.82 ERA and 2.73 WHIP in 7.1 innings. The two free passes Thursday give him a whopping 11 walks so far in 2022. Even if the Reds had won more than three games so far, Strickland would be pretty far from receiving save opportunities.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Could close games

    Strickland is part of a large group of closer candidates for the Reds this season according to manager David Bell, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Lucas Sims (elbow) will miss the start of the season with elbow troubles and isn't a lock to claim the job once healthy. Strickland had a 2.61 ERA last season, but his 24.0 percent strikeout rate isn't typical closer material and his 34.8 percent groundball rate could result in a fair number of homers at Great American Ball Park.

  • Reds' Hunter Strickland: Agrees to deal with Reds

    Strickland came to terms Tuesday with the Reds on a one-year, major-league contract, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. A one-time closer for the Giants who first rose to prominence as a fireballing setup man for San Francisco in its 2014 run to the World Series, Strickland looked to be on his way to washing out of the big leagues before reviving his career in 2021. Over stops with the Rays, Angels and Brewers last season, Strickland registered a 2.61 ERA and 1.16 WHIP while striking out nearly a batter per inning across 57 appearances, but some of his underlying metrics (4.16 FIP, 14.9 K-BB%, 34.8 GB%) painted a less rosy picture of his performance. Even so, Strickland enters a Reds bullpen lacking in impact arms, so he could find himself in a high-leverage role to begin the season.

  • Brewers' Hunter Strickland: Activated by Brewers

    Strickland was reinstated from the paternity list Friday. Strickland was away from the team since Tuesday following the birth of his child, but he'll rejoin the Brewers' bullpen ahead of the final series of the regular season. Across nine appearances in September, the right-hander recorded a 3.12 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 8.2 innings.

  • Brewers' Hunter Strickland: Placed on paternity leave

    Strickland was placed on the paternity list Tuesday. The 33-year-old will be away from the team for at most a few days as he welcomes his child. Strickland has struggled over his past two outings, surrendering three runs in two innings. Lefty Hoby Milner was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday to replace him on the roster.

  • Brewers' Hunter Strickland: Earns win over Reds

    Strickland (3-1) earned the win in relief Tuesday over the Reds after tossing a scoreless inning during which he issued a walk and recorded a strikeout. Strickland pitched the seventh inning and while he needed 27 pitches to get the job done, he came away unscathed en route to his third win of the campaign. The veteran right-hander has yet to allow a run this month and is currently riding a streak of eight consecutive scoreless appearances.
