  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: No earned runs allowed

    Ginkel retired the two batters he faced in Friday's spring game against the Reds. Ginkel has not allowed an earned run over five Cactus League outings (4.2 innings). The right-hander could be moving into the pole position to become Arizona's closer, given Mark Melancon's results this spring (16.88 ERA). Andrew Chafin (groin) and Joe Mantiply are also in the mix for saves.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Takes loss in sloppy eighth

    Ginkel (1-1) picked up the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, allowing three runs (one earned) on two walks without retiring a batter. The Diamondbacks held a 5-1 lead entering the eighth inning, but it all melted away as Caleb Smith, Ginkel and Joe Mantiply couldn't hold it. Smith departed after ceding a two-run home run before Ginkel, who was victimized by Josh Rojas' fielding error and his inability to locate (14 pitches, five strikes). Mantiply entered a bases-loaded, none-out situation and couldn't prevent the winning runs from scoring. The back end of Arizona's bullpen has been shaky, so manager Torey Lovullo has been using relievers other than Mark Melancon and Ian Kennedy with mixed results.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Joins Arizona bullpen

    Ginkel was called up from Triple-A Reno on Monday. Ginkel earned his way onto Arizona's roster by posting a 1.17 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 45:12 K:BB in 30.2 innings over 30 relief appearances with Reno. Despite the stellar numbers, don't expect him to occupy a key spot in Arizona's bullpen out of the gate.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Pitching for Triple-A club

    Ginkel (elbow) has made two relief appearances for Triple-A Reno this season, covering two scoreless innings and striking out three while giving up one hit and no walks. Ginkel finished the 2021 campaign on the Diamondbacks' 60-day injured list with right elbow inflammation, but after he was activated and outrighted off the 40-man roster in November, he reported to spring training at full health. The right-hander fell short in his bid for a spot in Arizona's Opening Day bullpen and will look to impress at Triple-A before earning another look with the big club.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Outrighted to minors

    Ginkel (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Friday. Ginkel spent the final few weeks of the 2021 campaign on the 60-day injured list, and he'll remain off the 40-man roster after several prospects had their contracts selected Friday. The right-hander posted a 6.35 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 28.1 innings across 32 relief appearances in the big leagues last year.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Lands on 60-day IL

    Ginkel was recalled from Triple-A Reno and placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday with right elbow inflammation. Ginkel landed on the injured list at Reno in late July, and he's being move to the major-league 60-day IL to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. There's been no indication where the 27-year-old is at in his recovery, but given the length of his absence, he won't be returning down the stretch for Arizona.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Demoted to Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks optioned Ginkel to Triple-A Reno following Saturday's 9-3 loss to the Dodgers. Ginkel's demotion comes in the wake of perhaps his worst relief appearance of the season. During Saturday's loss, Ginkel retired only three of the eight batters he faced in a 36-pitch outing, giving up three earned runs on a double and four walks. The loss of control was a surprise from Ginkel; he had issued only three free passes over his last 14 relief appearances combined.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Pitches Thursday

    Ginkel (illness) allowed one hit over a scoreless inning in Thursday's 7-4 loss to Colorado. Ginkel was unavailable for a game earlier this week with manager Torey Lovullo saying the reliever was "under the weather." Arizona's unsettled bullpen could use some stability, and Ginkel has not yet been scored upon in four appearances, spanning 3.1 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Unavailable due to illness

    Manager Torey Lovullo said after Tuesday's 13-inning win over the Rockies that Ginkel was "feeling under the weather" and wasn't available out of the bullpen, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports. Both Chris Devenski and Yoan Lopez blew save opportunities Tuesday night, leading to rookie Matt Peacock making his debut and pitching three innings to finish the game. We still don't have an official closer for the Diamondbacks and might not for a while with Joakim Soria on the IL.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Makes second spring appearance

    Ginkel allowed one walk and struck out one over a scoreless inning in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Cubs. Ginkel entered the game in the eighth inning in what was his second spring appearance. He pitched the fifth inning during his other outing. He had been considered closer material in 2020 following a breakout 2019, but the right-hander allowed 11 earned runs over 10 innings when pitching the final third of games last season. Ginkel is expected to have a spot in the 2021 bullpen but has been passed by Stefan Crichton for high-leverage work.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Optioned to alternate site

    Ginkel was optioned to Arizona's alternate training site Thursday. Ginkel had seemingly taken over as the Diamondbacks' closer after Archie Bradley was traded to Cincinnati at the deadline, but he's now no longer even a low-leverage option. His 6.75 ERA and 2.12 WHIP on the season certainly aren't closer material. Travis Bergen picked up a save Thursday and is the only remaining pitcher on Arizona's roster with a save this season.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Tagged with loss

    Ginkel (0-2) was tagged with the loss against the Dodgers on Wednesday, recording one out while giving up two runs (one earned) on one hit and a walk with one strikeout. Ginkel came into a tied 10th inning and immediately allowed the extra-innings baserunner (Corey Seager) to advance to third on a wild pitch. He then gave up an RBI single to Chris Taylor before striking out Cody Bellinger. After walking Max Muncy, Ginkel was replaced with Hector Rondon, who charged another run to Ginkel by surrendering an RBI single to AJ Pollock. Ginkel had blown his first opportunity at closer last week against the Dodgers but earned a win two days later against the Giants. He's not exactly off to a good start in a high-leverage role.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Closer for now

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said he's likely to stick with Ginkel as the closer "for the time being," Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Ginkel blew his first chance at closing last week against the Dodgers but nailed down a win two days later against the Giants. "Even though he gave up the lead (against the Dodgers), I thought he threw the ball and was repeating his pitches very well," Lovullo said. Ginkel got the first chance to close games based on his performance and results during the second half of the 2019 season, when he posted a 1.48 ERA over 25 games in August and September.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Converts save

    Ginkel worked around a walk while striking out one in a scoreless inning to record the save in Friday's 6-5 win over the Giants. Ginkel, who blew a save earlier this week against the Dodgers, was awarded a second opportunity and was much better the this time around. There have been two chances for Diamondback relievers to save games in the ninth inning since Archie Bradley was traded, and both times manager Torey Lovullo opted for Ginkel.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Gets first shot at save

    Ginkel allowed a run on two hits while striking out one and blew the save in Wednesday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Dodgers. This was the first save chance for the Diamondbacks since they traded closer Archie Bradley, and it did not go well for Ginkel, who entered with a 1-0 lead to start the ninth inning. He hung a 2-2 slider to Mookie Betts, who wiped out the slim lead and sent the game into extras. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic that he plans to use a committee of relievers to close games: Ginkel, Stefan Crichton, Junior Guerra, Yoan Lopez and Hector Rondon. All five of them are controllable beyond this season, so it's logical to assume Lovullo is using the month of September as an audition for the team's closer in 2021.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Takes loss in meltdown

    Ginkel (0-1) failed to record an out Tuesday, allowing four runs on three hits and a walk and taking the loss versus the Rockies. Ginkel was responsible for four of the Rockies' six runs in the eighth inning Tuesday. It's the second time he's allowed four runs in an appearance, after doing the same over two-thirds of an inning Opening Day. The 26-year-old Ginkel has an unsightly 16.20 ERA with six strikeouts in five innings across seven appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Chips away at high ERA

    Ginkel struck out two over one scoreless inning in Wednesday's 14-7 win over the Astros. Ginkel has been slowly chipping away at a monstrous 54.00 ERA, which was the result of a four-run outing in two-thirds of an inning on Opening Day. He was a valued setup man over the second half of 2019 and opened the year in that role, but Ginkel has not been used as such since Opening Day. Since then, he's allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four over four innings. As the right-hander adds more positive results, manager Torey Lovullo may eventually return Ginkel to a setup role.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Lets game get away

    Ginkel allowed four runs on three hits and two walks while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Padres. It was a 3-2 game when Ginkel entered in the seventh inning, but he allowed a three-run double to Eric Hosmer. "I just think there were too many yanked pitches and too many pitches that were out of the zone from start to finish," manager Torey Lovullo told Steve Gilbert of This is the type of situation -- close game, late innings -- that the Diamondbacks envision for Ginkel, who served this role well during the second half of 2019.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Joins camp Monday

    Ginkel arrived at the Diamondbacks' summer camp workouts on Monday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports. Ginkel and David Peralta both made their first appearance at summer camp in time for Arizona's intrasquad game Monday. The 26-year-old pitcher is expected to serve as one of the primary setup men for closer Archie Bradley this season. During his rookie campaign in 2019, Ginkel recorded an impressive 1.48 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and a 28:9 K:BB across 24.1 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Throws one inning Tuesday

    Ginkel (arm) allowed one hit in a shutout inning of a controlled game on the back fields Tuesday, Jesse Sanchez of reports. Ginkel, who had been experiencing arm fatigue, threw for the first time in a week. After a successful introduction to MLB in 2019, a season in which he had a 1.48 ERA and two saves over 25 appearances, Ginkel is expected to serve in a setup role in 2020.
