Top Corey Knebel News

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Agrees to deal with Phillies

    Knebel signed a one-year, $10 million contract with the Phillies on Wednesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Knebel missed several months in 2021 due to a lat injury, but he still posted a strong 2.45 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 25.2 innings across 27 appearances (four starts) during his first year with the Dodgers. The Phillies still have Jose Alvarado in the bullpen, but Knebel should factor into Philadelphia's late-inning mix during the 2022 campaign.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Serving as opener in Game 1

    Knebel will serve as the opener in Game 1 of the NLCS against Atlanta on Saturday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Knebel was utilized as the opener in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Giants on Thursday, and he allowed a hit and no walks while striking out one in a scoreless first inning. Tony Gonsolin will likely be available to serve as a bulk reliever at some point in Saturday's contest.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Opening series clincher

    Knebel will serve as the opener for Thursday's NLDS Game 5 matchup against the Giants.

    Lefty Julio Urias is on turn to start the deciding contest, but it looks as though the Dodgers will turn the Giants lineup around with the right-handed Knebel to start the game before presumably bringing Urias in for an extended stretch. Knebel filled the same opener role four times during the regular season, allowing one run in a combined 5.2 innings of work.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Opening Tuesday vs. Cards

    Knebel will serve as the opener Tuesday against the Cardinals, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    Per David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports, Mitch White is set to work as the primary pitcher behind Knebel. This new role is a tough break for those who had been rostering Knebel in holds or saves-plus-holds leagues, as all he can do is help in strikeouts and ratios. He has a 2.38 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 10 strikeouts in 11.1 innings since coming off the injured list Aug. 10.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Allows one run as opener

    Knebel allowed one run on two hits in one inning as the opener Tuesday against the Cardinals. He did not factor in the decision.

    Knebel coughed up a run on a single, a ground-rule double and a sacrifice fly -- just the fourth earned run Knebel has given up in 12.1 innings since he returned from an extended absence due to a lat injury. Mitch White was expected to pitch in long relief behind Knebel on Tuesday, but at the last minute the team decided to push White back to start Wednesday's game.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Serving as opener Friday

    Knebel will serve as the opener in Friday's game against the Giants, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Knebel served as an opener against the Rockies last weekend and tossed 1.2 innings before David Price took over as the primary pitcher. He'll begin the game on the mound once again Friday, while Price will likely serve as the primary pitcher since he was initially listed as the starter.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Serving as opener

    Knebel will serve as the opener for Saturday's game against the Rockies, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Knebel has filled that same role once already this season back in mid-August, marking the first start of his seven-year major-league career. He was asked to throw only a single inning on that occasion and hasn't recorded more than four outs in any of his 16 appearances this season, so it's unlikely he pitches deep into this contest. David Price, who was originally listed as Saturday's starter, will likely follow him out of the bullpen.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Picks up win in extras

    Knebel (3-0) earned the win over the Padres on Wednesday but allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and a walk while striking out a batter over an inning of work.

    Knebel entered the game in the 15th inning trying to close out a 3-1 lead but was unable to do so. He retired the first batter he faced but then served up a game-tying, two-run homer to Fernando Tatis, which extended the game for another frame. The 29-year-old righty was still afforded the win after the Dodgers retook the lead in the top of the 16th off a two-run blast from AJ Pollock. Knebel has now given up runs in back-to-back outings after he had six straight scoreless appearances coming off the 60-day injured list earlier this month. For the year, Knebel owns a 4.15 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 16:6 K:BB over 13 innings.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Set to start Thursday

    Knebel will start Thursday's game against the Mets, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Knebel will make the first start of his MLB career with the Dodgers employing a bullpen game Thursday. The right-hander has pitched well when healthy this season with a 2.89 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB, though he's been limited to 9.1 innings.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Earns win in relief

    Knebel (2-0) earned the win Tuesday after tossing 1.1 scoreless innings in relief.

    Knebel entered the game with one out left in the fifth, and he didn't have problems getting the job done as he recorded all four outs with only 20 pitches (16 strikes). The right-hander extended his streak of scoreless appearances to four games and owns a strong 2.89 ERA across 12 games (9.1 innings) on the season.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Picks up third save

    Knebel worked one-third of an inning in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Mets to record his third save of the season.

    Knebel was summoned to get the final out in the 10th inning of Saturday's game against the Mets. Facing the pesky Brandon Nimmo, he got the Mets' center fielder to ground out to first to end the game. The Dodgers clearly aren't shying away from giving the 29-year-old high-leverage assignments, even with this being just his third outing since returning from a lat injury that cost him almost four months of the season.
