  • White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Coughs up three runs

    Graveman allowed three earned runs on four hits while striking out one across one inning Monday against the Royals.

    Graveman entered the game with a three-run lead in the eighth inning, though he coughed up the advantage by allowing three singles and a double. He entered the contest having allowed only one earned run across his last 10 frames, and he posted four holds and two saves in that span. Despite his poor outing, Graveman should continue to occupy the top setup role in the White Sox bullpen.

  • White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Picks up second save

    Graveman allowed one hit and walked one across a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Guardians.

    Graveman entered the game with a three-run lead and retired the first two batters he faced. He made things interesting by allowing two hitters to reach base, but he ultimately recorded his second save without much trouble. Graveman has had a strong start to the season by maintaining a 1.76 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with a 15:5 K:BB across 15.1 frames, though he only worked the ninth inning because Liam Hendriks had appeared in three out of the last four games.

  • White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Tallies fifth hold

    Graveman threw a scoreless eighth inning while allowing one hit and striking out one Monday against the Angels.

    Graveman entered in the eighth inning with a 3-0 lead. After allowing a leadoff single, he made quick work of the next three batters he faced to earn his fifth hold of the season. Graveman has held opposing teams scoreless in nine of his 11 appearances this season, and he also has an impressive 14:4 K:BB across 12.1 innings. Liam Hendriks appears to have rebounded from some early season struggles and a back injury, though Graveman would likely be next in line for save opportunities.

  • White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Picks up first save

    Graveman did not allow a baserunner and struck out four across two innings to earn the save Wednesday against the Royals.

    Graveman has regularly pitched in high-leverage situations this season, though he earned a save thanks to the absence of Liam Hendriks (back). He was dominant with the opportunity, as he needed only 20 pitches to retire six batters. It appears as if Hendriks will be able to avoid a stint on the injured list, though if his health worsens it appears that Graveman will be in line for save opportunities.

  • White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Takes loss against Twins

    Graveman (0-1) allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and one walk while striking out one across 1.1 innings to take the loss Friday against the Twins.

    Graveman entered the game in the eighth inning with a 1-0 lead. He retired the first two batters in order before surrendering a ground-rule double to Ryan Jeffers and a walk to Luis Arraez. Both runners came around to score on an error by Jose Abreu, which ultimately saddled Graveman with the loss. After holding opponents scoreless across his first 5.2 innings of the season, Graveman has now surrendered four runs (two earned) across his last two appearances.

  • White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Strong start to season

    Graveman allowed one hit and struck out one across a scoreless eighth inning Tuesday against the Mariners.

    Graveman has already made three appearances this season, and he's made a strong impression with his new club. He has yet to allow a run, while also surrendering only two hits across 3.2 frames. Despite some early-season struggles from Liam Hendriks, Graveman doesn't' project for many save chances, but he has collected two holds and should also maintain strong ratios while throwing a high volume of innings.

  • White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Reaches deal with White Sox

    Graveman and the White Sox agreed to terms on a contract expected to be worth around $24 million over three years, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    Graveman signed a one-year, $1.25 million deal last offseason, but it doesn't take much for a reliever to significantly increase his value. The 30-year-old did that in a big way in 2021, posting a 1.77 ERA in 56 regular-season innings for the Mariners and Astros before following it up with a 1.64 ERA in 11 postseason frames. His underlying numbers don't indicate he was quite that dominant but still paint a picture of a solid setup man, as he was well above average in both strikeout rate (27.5 percent) and groundball rate (54.9 percent). A setup role is presumably what he'll fill in Chicago, as the team already employs both Liam Hendriks and Craig Kimbrel.

  • Astros' Kendall Graveman: Picks up win in Game 4

    Graveman (1-0) allowed no hits and a walk while striking out two in two scoreless innings to earn the win over the Red Sox in Game 4 of the ALCS on Tuesday.

    Graveman entered Tuesday's matchup in the seventh inning with the Astros trailing by a run, but he benefited from the team's comeback in the eighth and ninth innings and was rewarded with his first postseason win. The righty has made five relief appearances during the playoffs and has recorded a 1.50 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in six innings.

  • Astros' Kendall Graveman: Reinstated, picks up hold

    Graveman struck out one over a scoreless eighth inning to earn a hold in Thursday's 3-2 win over Tampa Bay.

    Graveman was reinstated off the paternity list earlier in the day, then set down the Rays after hitting the first batter he faced with his first pitch. This was the reliever's seventh hold in 22 appearances since joining Houston. Graveman owns a 2.86 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 22 innings while helping to solidify a shaky Houston bullpen.

  • Astros' Kendall Graveman: Reinstated by Astros

    Graveman was reinstated from the paternity list Thursday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    Graveman was away from the Astros since Tuesday, but he'll be available out of the bullpen for Thursday's series finale against the Rays. The right-hander has posted a 1.04 ERA and 1.96 WHIP in 8.2 innings across nine appearances in September, but he was charged with blown saves in each of his last three outings.

  • Astros' Kendall Graveman: Placed on paternity list

    Graveman was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chroniclee reports.

    The right-hander will temporarily be away from the team but figures to rejoin the club in time for the final regular-season series against Oakland this weekend. Reliever Josh James was called up from Triple-A Sugar Land to take Graveman's spot on the 28-man roster.

  • Astros' Kendall Graveman: Surrenders fatal grand slam

    Graveman (5-1) took the loss in Tuesday's 4-0 defeat at the hands of the Mariners, allowing four runs on two hits and a walk while recording his only out via strikeout.

    Graveman entered a scoreless game in the eighth and permitted a walk, strikeout, single and hit a batter before serving up a go-ahead grand slam to Abraham Toro -- the player Houston gave up to acquire Graveman. The four runs allowed on the one swing are only one less than the five he had surrendered all season prior to Tuesday, and as a result the 30-year-old's ERA jumped from 1.00 to 1.79. However, one blowup outing shouldn't alter Graveman's role in Houston's bullpen moving forward.
