  • Brewers' Matt Bush: Collects third save

    Bush allowed an unearned run on one hit and struck out two to earn the save in Saturday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Cardinals.

    Bush allowed initial runner Nolan Gorman to score on a sacrifice fly, but he was able to stave off the Cardinals after that. This was Bush's second straight save, which suggests he's firmly in the high-leverage mix for the Brewers. For the season, Bush has a 3.29 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 51:12 K:BB through 41 innings between Milwaukee and Texas, and he's added three saves and nine holds.

  • Brewers' Matt Bush: Earns second save

    Bush picked up the save, striking out two in a perfect ninth inning in a 5-3 win Tuesday over Tampa Bay.

    Bush faced the heart of Tampa Bay's lineup and retired them with ease, striking out Brandon Lowe and David Peralta in the process. It was his second save of the season and first since joining the Brewers. Bush joins Devin Williams as the two relievers that have received save chances since Milwaukee traded Josh Hader. Williams is likely to get the bulk of the save chances but Bush may be in the mix on occasion down the stretch.

  • Brewers' Matt Bush: Back-to-back poor outings

    Bush (0-1) blew the save and took the loss Thursday as Milwaukee fell 5-4 to Pittsburgh. He allowed two runs on one hit and two walks while striking out zero over one-third of an inning.

    Bush came on in the bottom of the 10th to protect a one-run lead, but he immediately blew the save by serving up an RBI double to Bryan Reynolds on his first pitch. After two intentional walks and a flyout to right field, Bush threw a wild, 0-2 curveball in the dirt, resulting in a walk-off win on a wild pitch for the Pirates. In two appearances with Milwaukee, Bush has surrendered four hits, four runs (three earned) and two walks across 1.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Serving as opener Saturday

    Bush will serve as the opener during Saturday's game against the Athletics.

    Bush hasn't lasted more than one inning in any of his first 36 appearances (four starts) this season and tossed a relief inning Thursday against Miami, so it seems safe to assume that his starting role Saturday will be as an opener. Over his last five outings, he's allowed a hit and a walk while striking out three in five innings. Taylor Hearn was originally listed as the starter for Saturday's matchup and will likely be available as a bulk reliever.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Opening Friday's game

    Bush will serve as the opener for Friday's game against the Mariners, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Bush has yet to complete more than one frame in an appearance this season, so he won't pitch deep into Friday's game. However, he's been effective out of the bullpen, maintaining a 40:9 K:BB, 3.64 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across 29.2 innings. Taylor Hearn will follow Bush into the game and is expected to serve as the primary pitcher.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Yields unearned run in return

    Bush gave up an unearned run on a hit and a walk with one strikeout in one inning during Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Twins.

    Bush put two runners aboard and then committed a throwing error, leading to the Twins' sixth run. The right-hander had a 5.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in nine innings in June before going on the injured list with forearm soreness. He's expected to compete for save opportunities in what's likely to be a closer committee for the Rangers following the demotion of Joe Barlow from the role. Overall, Bush has a 3.90 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 37:8 K:BB with a save, eight holds and three blown saves in 27.2 innings this year.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Back from injured list

    Bush (forearm) was activated from the 15-day injured list Sunday.

    Bush has been sidelined the past couple weeks by forearm soreness, but he threw live batting practice Friday and has been cleared to rejoin the active roster. The veteran right-hander has three saves and eight holds with a 4.05 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 36:7 K:BB across 26.2 innings this year, and he should be in the mix for more save opportunities after Joe Barlow was recently demoted from the closer role.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Throwing live BP

    Bush (forearm) threw live batting practice Friday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The right-hander has been sidelined by forearm soreness since June 26, but he now appears close to returning from the injured list. Bush has one save and eight holds to go with a 4.05 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 36:7 K:BB over 26.2 innings this season, and he could see more save chances once activated after Joe Barlow was demoted from the closer role. Dennis Santana is currently the favorite for ninth-inning opportunities.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Sidelined with sore forearm

    The Rangers placed Bush on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right forearm soreness.

    Texas planned on having Bush serve as its opening pitcher for Saturday's game against the Nationals, but he was ultimately scratched ahead of the contest for unspecified reasons. The forearm injury provides an explanation for Bush's absence, though the Rangers believe it's only a short-term concern for the right-hander, per Jeff Wilson of Right-hander Josh Sborz was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock to provide an extra arm out of the bullpen while Bush is on the mend.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Opening Saturday

    Bush will start Saturday's game against the Nationals.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Starting bullpen game

    Bush will be the first pitcher on the mound in a bullpen game Friday against the White Sox.

    The Rangers were left scrambling after scheduled starter Glenn Otto landed on the COVID-19 injured list earlier in the day. Without another starter to turn to, they'll instead use several relievers. Bush will be the first one on the mound, but he's yet to record more than three outs in any appearance this season, so he's unlikely to make it far beyond that number this time around.

  • Rangers' Matt Bush: Blows third save

    Bush allowed three runs on four hits over two-thirds of an inning, picking up a third blown save in Sunday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Mariners.

    Closer Joe Barlow threw 27 pitches over two consecutive days and was unavailable to close out a 5-2 Texas lead. The Rangers had already used reliable relievers Matt Moore and Dennis Santana to get them in position to close out a win, so Bush was the most likely option. He entered the contest having made six consecutive scoreless appearances following his previous blown save, but it unraveled quickly for the right-hander, who gave up four consecutive hits, including a Ty France home run and a two-run double to Eugenio Suarez.
