  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Secures win in extra innings

    Hentges (3-2) pitched a perfect 11th inning with one strikeout to earn the win Monday over the Diamondbacks. Hentges extended his scoreless streak to 5.2 innings over his last five appearances with the clean frame, and Amed Rosario hit a walkoff single for the win. After a rough stretch in late June and early July, Hentges appears to have gotten himself back on track. He owns a 3.55 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 41:14 K:BB in 38 innings as a middle reliever this year.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Falters again Wednesday

    Hentges (2-2) allowed two runs on three hits and two walks with one strikeout in 1.2 innings, taking the loss Wednesday versus the White Sox. Hentges was responsible for both runs the White Sox scored in the sixth inning, and the Guardians' offense couldn't get him off the hook. He's been scored upon in seven of his last eight outings, making his strong first two months of the season a distant memory. The southpaw now has a mediocre 4.18 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 36:14 K:BB across 32.1 innings this year. All but four of the 15 runs he's allowed this year have come in his last 7.1 frames.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Handed first loss

    Hentges (2-1) allowed a run on two hits and struck out one in one-third of an inning, taking the loss Friday versus the Royals. Hentges gave up a double to Vinnie Pasquantino and a walkoff single to Michael Taylor. After allowing runs in three of his first 24 appearances, Hentges has given up eight runs in his last five innings across six outings. The southpaw has seen his ERA spike from 1.44 to 3.60 during this slump, and he owns a 1.13 WHIP and 34:11 K:BB in 30 innings overall. He's added one hold, but he'll likely remain in a low-leverage role until he can get back on track.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Notches win Tuesday

    Hentges (2-0) picked up the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Twins. He allowed a run on one hit and struck out two in one inning. Hentges gave up a go-ahead solo home run to Carlos Correa in the top of the eighth inning, but the Guardians regained the lead in their half of the frame. This marked the second consecutive outing in which Hentges has given up a run, something he hadn't done all season. However, he's still sporting an impressive 2.33 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 31:7 K:BB in 27 innings. The southpaw's strong body of work could see him earn some high-leverage looks on a matchup basis, but he's picked up only one hold in 26 appearances.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Clean inning Saturday

    Hentges struck out one in a perfect inning in Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Dodgers. Hentges was the Guardians' most effective pitcher Saturday. He's given up runs in only three of his 21 appearances this season, and he's allowed multiple runs only once. That shakes out to a 1.64 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 27:4 K:BB with one hold in 22 innings, though he's yet to get a real taste of high-leverage assignments despite the solid overall numbers. He's also posted a 2.54 FIP, which indicates he might experience a little regression, but it's not likely to be severe.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Logs first hold

    Hentges walked two in one-third of a scoreless inning to earn a hold in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Orioles. Hentges has seen limited usage, making just four appearances since May 13. He's covered just 2.1 innings in those outings. The usage is puzzling, as the southpaw has been solid with a 1.10 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 19:2 K:BB across 16.1 innings in 16 appearances. Hentges is likely ticketed for low-leverage work, and it seems unlikely he'd be an option as a potential spot starter given that he hasn't logged more than three outs in an appearance since May 4.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Extends scoreless streak

    Hentges threw a perfect inning in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the White Sox. Over his last nine outings, Hentges threw 11.0 shutout innings, allowing just six hits and a walk. The southpaw continues to be stingy with baserunners, posting a 0.62 WHIP and a 17:1 K:BB across 13 innings this season. Hentges is still most likely to serve as a multi-inning option for now, but extended success could see him eventually be in position to pick up the occasional hold.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Resuming relief role this season

    Hentges will begin the 2022 season in the bullpen, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Not surprisingly, Hentges is on the outside looking in for a spot in the rotation. The southpaw struggled with a 6.68 ERA and 1.78 WHIP across 30 appearances last season, but he was more effective in relief than he was in his 12 starts. The 25-year-old should see mostly multi-inning assignments, and he could function as a piggyback to starters as they build up their pitch counts early in the season.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Pitching well in relief

    Hentges has allowed two runs in 6.1 innings since transitioning to a bullpen role. Hentges was at his best in Sunday's 11-1 win over the Yankees, striking out the side in the ninth inning to end the lopsided contest. The southpaw had little success as a starter this year, but he's been more effective in a low-leverage relief role. Overall, the 25-year-old has a 6.86 ERA, 1.81 WHIP and 63:30 K:BB through 63 innings across 26 outings (12 starts).

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Moves to bullpen role

    Hentges pitched a perfect inning in relief during Friday's 8-5 loss to Boston. The southpaw last started Aug. 26, allowing four runs (two earned) versus Texas. Logan Allen took Hentges' regular turn through the rotation Wednesday, suggesting the latter isn't currently set for work as a starter. With Aaron Civale (finger) also nearing a return from the 60-day injured list, Hentges could either be ticketed for a move to the bullpen or a demotion to Triple-A Columbus -- given his 7.18 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 54:30 K:BB through 57.2 innings this season, he could benefit from more work in the minors.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Takes no-decision

    Hentges allowed four runs (two earned) on five hits and a pair of walks while striking out three across four innings against the Rangers on Thursday. He did not factor into the decision. It was another subpar performance for Hentges, who lasted only four innings for his second straight start. The 25-year-old just hasn't had the distance, pitching a maximum of five innings twice in 12 starts. Overall, Hentges has compiled a 7.31 ERA and 1.94 WHIP across 21 appearances. If he remains in the rotation, the southpaw tentatively aligns for a Wednesday start at Kansas City.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Gives up three runs Saturday

    Hentges didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Tigers after allowing three runs on four hits while fanning three across two innings. Hentges once again struggled to pitch deep into the game but that shouldn't be much of a surprise, as he has pitched at least five complete frames just twice across his 19 outings this season. He also ended a streak of three straight appearances allowing one or fewer runs. The southpaw now owns a 6.00 ERA with a 2.00 WHIP across four appearances this month.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Unsteady across two innings

    Hentges allowed one run on four hits and a walk with one strikeout in two innings in a no-decision versus Cincinnati on Monday. The southpaw gave up an RBI single to Joey Votto in the first inning, but Cleveland's offense made sure Hentges wouldn't take a loss in the bullpen game. The 25-year-old has a 7.71 ERA, 2.04 WHIP and 46:27 K:BB through 46.2 innings. It's unclear if he'll return to a bullpen role or remain in the rotation going forward -- if it's the latter, he lines up to start versus Detroit over the weekend. Either way, Hentges' performance suggests he's not likely to be much of an asset in fantasy.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Starting bullpen game

    Hentges will start Monday's game against the Reds, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Hentges will make his ninth start of the season with Cleveland employing a bullpen game. The left-hander made his last start July 7 and covered 4.1 innings, but he's unlikely to pitch that deep Monday given he's covered single frames in each of his past two outings.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Pitches scoreless inning

    Hentges allowed a hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning during Tuesday's 7-2 loss to Toronto. Hentges was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on July 22, but Tuesday was his first appearance since rejoining the major-league roster. The 25-year-old has worked as both a starter and a reliever this year, and he's been a long-relief option since his call-up. He owns an 8.04 ERA, 2.02 WHIP and 45:25 K:BB across 43.2 innings in 16 appearances (eight starts).

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Recalled by Cleveland

    Hentges was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Hentges was sent to the minors prior to the All-Star break, and he gave up three runs in 4.1 innings across three relief appearances at Triple-A Columbus. He's posted an 8.23 ERA and 2.04 WHIP in 42.2 innings across 15 appearances (eight starts) in the majors this year, but he could be a candidate to claim a starting job after Eli Morgan was sent down in a corresponding move.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Optioned to Triple-A

    Hentges was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Hentges has struggled during his last three starts, allowing 16 earned runs on 17 hits across 10.1 innings. With the All-Star break offering the club rotation flexibility, there's a chance that Hentges could be brought back to the big leagues following the break, but that decision likely won't be made until some time next week. Triston McKenzie was recalled in a corresponding roster move to start Friday.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Takes loss in Game 2

    Hentges (1-4) took the loss in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus Tampa Bay. He allowed four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three in 4.1 innings. While Hentges pitched into the fifth inning for the first time since June 20, he got no offensive support from his Cleveland teammates. The rookie southpaw continues to struggle with an 8.23 ERA, 2.04 WHIP and 44:25 K:BB across 42.2 innings this season. He's started eight of his 15 appearances, but his spot in the rotation will likely be in jeopardy when some of Cleveland's injured arms return.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Dealt another loss

    Hentges (1-3) took the loss versus Houston on Friday. He allowed six runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 2.2 innings. For the second straight outing, a half-dozen runs were charged to Hentges. The southpaw continues to struggle in a starting role this year. Through 14 outings (seven starts), he's posted an 8.22 ERA, 2.06 WHIP and 41:22 K:BB across 38.1 innings. Hentges will likely stay in the rotation until one of Zach Plesac (thumb) or Shane Bieber (shoulder) is ready to come off the injured list. Hentges tentatively lines up to pitch versus Kansas City next week.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Struggles with command in loss

    Hentges (1-2) allowed six runs on six hits and four walks while striking out a batter over 3.1 innings as he took the loss against the Twins on Sunday. Hentges had some difficulty locating the strike zone Sunday, as he threw just 38 of his 72 pitches for strikes. His four walks are tied for the most in an outing this season. The 24-year-old did not pitch a clean inning after giving up a run in the first, two in the second, one in the third and two more in the fourth. Hentges hadn't given up a home run since May 17 but surrendered a two-run blast off the bat of Andrelton Simmons in the second and a solo shot to Josh Donaldson in the third. He now owns a 7.32 ERA, 1.99 WHIP and 38:20 K:BB over 35.2 innings. His spot in the rotation should still be safe for now with Cleveland dealing with injuries to their top three arms but lines up for a daunting matchup against the red-hot Astros this week.
