  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Collects eighth save

    Knebel didn't walk or strike out a batter in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his eighth save of the season in a 3-0 win over the Padres.

    He needed only four pitches to get the job done, as the top of the San Diego order swung early but couldn't make any good contact. Knebel has been relatively effective as the Phillies' closer, having allowed earned runs in only three of his 16 appearances and posting a 3.38 ERA and 1.19 WHIP through 16 innings, but his 21.2 percent strikeout rate would be the worst mark of his career by far if it doesn't improve over the summer.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Handed loss and blown save

    Knebel (0-3) took the loss and blown save during Sunday's 5-4 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk in two-thirds of an inning.

    Knebel entered in the ninth inning to protect a one-run lead and retired the first two Dodgers before surrendering a triple, walk and double that plated both runners, resulting in a walk-off victory for Los Angeles. The 30-year-old had converted three-straight save opportunities while permitting only one baserunner but has now blown two saves in his last five chances. The outing increased Knebel's ERA and WHIP to 3.60 and 1.27, respectively, through 15 innings.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Escapes with seventh save

    Knebel earned the save over the Dodgers on Thursday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning during which he gave up two walks and one hit.

    Knebel's outing against his former club began in very shaky fashion, as he loaded the bases on a single and a pair of walks before recording an out. However, the veteran was able to escape the jam without allowing runs by inducing a pair of short flyballs and a foul out. Knebel has gone 7-for-8 in save opportunities this season, posting a 2.51 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB over 14.1 innings.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Four-out save

    Knebel struck out two across 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the save Wednesday against the Mariners.

    Knebel entered the game with the tying run at the plate but struck out Jesse Winker to avoid significant danger. He then returned for the ninth frame and retired the Mariners in order to lock down his sixth save of the campaign. Knebel has held opponents scoreless in 11 of his 13 appearances this season and maintained a 2.70 ERA with a 14:3 K:BB across 13.1 innings.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Locks down fifth save

    Knebel earned the save with a scoreless ninth inning during Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets. He had two strikeouts and didn't allow a baserunner.

    The right-hander threw 10 of his 14 pitches for strikes as he quickly retired the side in order to rebound from blowing his first save of the season Thursday.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Melts down in ninth

    Knebel (0-2) allowed three earned runs on four hits while striking out one across 0.2 innings to blow the save and take the loss Thursday against the Mets.

    Knebel entered the game in the midst of a ninth-inning rally by the Mets, though he still had a four-run lead to work with. However, he went on to allow four of the first five hitters he faced to reach base, capped off by an RBI double off the bat of Starling Marte to give the Mets an 8-7 lead. Knebel entered the game having allowed only one earned run across 10.1 innings, so this is hopefully just an isolated outing and not the start of a downward trend.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Logs four-out save

    Knebel saved Saturday's 4-1 victory over the Mets, allowing one hit and one walk with one strikeout in 1.1 innings.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Notches second save

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Returns from COVID-19 IL

    The Phillies reinstated Knebel (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday.

    Philadelphia placed Knebel on the list prior to Tuesday's loss to the Mets after he reported flu-like symptoms, but his reinstatement a day later implies that he never tested positive for the virus. Unless the Phillies indicate otherwise, Knebel will likely be available for Wednesday's series finale, as he likely wouldn't have been activated if he was still feeling under the weather. Through his first two appearances with the Phillies, Knebel has struck out three and allowed two baserunners over two innings while converting his only save opportunity.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Awaiting COVID test results

    Knebel and the Phillies are waiting on the results of a COVID-19 test, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Knebel was unavailable with flu-like symptoms Monday and hit the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday, but it looks as though the team isn't yet sure what his illness is. The symptoms alone are enough for him to hit the COVID-specific injured list, but he could return quickly if it turns out that he's dealing with the flu instead.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Lands on COVID-19 injured list

    Knebel was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday.

    Knebel was unavailable Monday due to what were reportedly flu-like symptoms, but the apparent flu may actually be COVID-19 instead. If he has indeed tested positive for the virus, he could miss over a week. Brad Hand got the save in his absence Monday, though opportunities could also go to Jeurys Familia or Seranthony Dominguez if the Phillies face a run of righties in the ninth inning.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Unavailable due to illness

    Knebel wasn't available to pitch Monday against the Mets due to flu-like symptoms, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Knebel wasn't spotted in the bullpen during Monday's matchup, and manager Joe Girardi revealed after the game that he wasn't available to pitch the ninth inning. Instead, it was Brad Hand who slammed the door in the series opener in Knebel's absence. Knebel will be considered day-to-day until further notice.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Secures first save

    Knebel picked up a save Saturday against Oakland, pitching one inning and allowing an unearned run on one hit and one walk while striking out one.

    Knebel was used in a non-save situation Friday and required only 10 pitches to retire the side, so he was able to get back on the mound in a closer game Saturday. The veteran allowed the first two batters he faced to reach base but then induced a double play and followed with a strikeout to notch his first save as a member of the Phillies. The right-hander has 61 saves in his career, but only four have come since the 2018 season.

  • Phillies' Corey Knebel: Closer, as of now

    Manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that, as of now, Knebel will be the Phillies' closer, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Girardi's statement wasn't a definitive one, but it confirms the notion that Knebel would be the closer if the Phillies' don't bring in anyone above him on the depth chart ahead of Opening Day. The 30-year-old righty has 60 career saves in 266 appearances and logged a 2.45 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 29.7 K% and .174 batting average against in 25.2 innings with the Dodgers last season. His 8.9 BB% was his best mark since 2015.
