Top Corey Knebel News

  • 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.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Fans two in return

    Knebel pitched two-thirds of an inning against Philadelphia on Tuesday, allowing no runs on one hit and one walk while striking out two.

    The veteran reliever made his return to the mound after missing nearly four months with a lat injury. Knebel allowed the first two batters he faced to reach base but rebounded by striking out Bryce Harper and J.T. Realmuto. The right-hander may work in lower-leverage situations for the time being while he shakes the rust from his long layoff, but he could eventually be a factor in the late innings ahead of closer Kenley Jansen.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Returns from extended absence

    The Dodgers reinstated Knebel (lat) from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

    Los Angeles cleared room for Knebel on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster by placing Joe Kelly (undisclosed) on the COVID-19-related IL. Knebel, who had been sidelined since late April with a strained lat, was cleared to rejoin the Dodgers after a stellar six-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Oklahoma City in which he permitted one run on four hits and a walk while striking out 11 over 5.2 innings. The Dodgers could immediately turn to Knebel to fill a key setup role in front of closer Kenley Jansen, especially with one of their more trusted late-inning arms in Kelly now on the shelf.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Due back Tuesday

    Manager Dave Roberts said Knebel (lat) will be reinstated from the 60-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    The Dodgers signed off on Knebel's return from a three-plus-month absence after he checked out fine following a six-appearance rehab assignment at Triple-A Oklahoma City. Prior to being shelved with a right lat strain, Knebel looked to be the next man up for closing duties behind Kenley Jansen, as he notched three holds and two saves across his first eight appearances with the Dodgers. Given the length of Knebel's absence, Roberts may prefer to break the right-hander back in as a low-leverage reliever before trusting him in bigger spots in the late innings.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Eyeing return next week

    Knebel (lat) could be activated during next week's series in Philadelphia, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    A lat strain has sidelined Knebel since late April, at which point he had appeared in eight games for the Dodgers and posted a 4.50 ERA with nine strikeouts and three walks. The righty will presumably be eased into higher-leverage situations once activated, but he certainly has the stuff to be one of the bullpen's best late-inning options.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Tosses third rehab outing

    Knebel (lat) completed two-thirds of an inning for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday. He hit one batter and allowed a double while striking out two in the scoreless outing.

    The reliever threw 16 of 22 pitches for strikes and fanned the final two batters he faced after the first two hitters reached base. Knebel is now through three appearances in his rehab stint, and he has yet to give up a run while striking out six batters over 2.2 frames. He could rejoin the Dodgers' bullpen within a week.

  • Dodgers' Corey Knebel: Heading to OKC for rehab

    Knebel (lat) will make his first rehab appearance for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday.

    Knebel will be making his first appearance in affiliated ball since late April after the Dodgers shut him down for three months following a diagnosis of a right lat strain. Given his prolonged shutdown, Knebel will likely require multiple appearances at Oklahoma City to get ramped up before the Dodgers bring him back from the 60-day IL. If Knebel proves that he can quickly recapture his pre-injury form, he could slot into a key setup role once he returns to the Dodgers.
