Twins' Tyler Clippard: Signs with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard signed a one-year, $2.75 million contract with the Twins on Friday.

The 34-year-old remained a strong relief option in his 13th season in the majors in 2019, posting a 2.90 ERA in 62 innings for Cleveland. He should be at worst a quality middle-relief option for the Twins this season and could have the chance to add to his 68 career saves if injuries strike the team's top closing options.

Indians' Tyler Clippard: Opening Game 2 Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard will serve as the opener in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

It's unclear who will come in as the primary pitcher, but Carlos Carrasco seems a likely candidate to appear in the second game of this twin bill. James Hoyt is the only reliever who appeared in the matinee for Cleveland.

Indians' Tyler Clippard: Picks up extra-innings win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard (1-0) pitched 1.1 scoreless innings without allowing a baserunner while striking out three to earn the win versus the Twins on Friday.

It's the first time he's factored into a decision in 46 appearances this season. Clippard became the pitcher of record as the Indians rallied for four runs in the top of the 11th. The reliever has a 2.62 ERA and 0.80 WHIP with a 58:12 K:BB ratio in 55 innings this season.

Indians' Tyler Clippard: Starting Game 2 of twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard will start Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Rangers, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

The Indians will go with a bullpen game for the second half of Wednesday's twin bill after using just two relievers -- Brad Hand and Nick Goody -- in Game 1. The veteran right-hander owns a 2.88 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 40:10 K:BB in 40.2 innings this season.

Indians' Tyler Clippard: Disappoints as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard surrendered three runs on two hits while recording four outs as the Indians' starter in Wednesday's 9-7 win over the Twins.

Following Carlos Carrasco's (illness) surprise placement on the 10-day injured list, Clippard was tabbed on short notice to make his 10th career big-league start and just his second since 2008. Clippard retired the side in the first inning but unraveled in the second, allowing three of the four batters he faced to reach base before exiting. Reliever Tyler Olson didn't do Clippard any favors, allowing both of the runners he inherited to score. Clippard's ERA jumped from 2.70 to 4.30 as a result of the poor showing.

Indians' Tyler Clippard: Slated to start bullpen game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard will start Wednesday against the Twins, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Carlos Carrasco was placed on the injured list ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday with a blood condition, leaving Clippard to serve as the opener against the Twins in what will be a bullpen game. In 13 appearances this season (all in relief), Clippard owns a 2.70 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and 14:3 K:BB across 13.1 innings.

Indians' Tyler Clippard: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard (pectoral) had his contract purchased from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Clippard missed the first few weeks of the season while recovering from a strained pectoral, but he's been cleared to join the big-league bullpen after completing a trio of minor-league rehab appearances with no issues, allowing one run on two hits while striking out four across three innings. The veteran right-hander made 73 appearances for the Blue Jays last season, compiling a 3.67 ERA and 85 strikeouts in 68.2 innings of work.

Indians' Tyler Clippard: Moving rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard (pectoral) will join Triple-A Columbus to continue his rehab work, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Clippard has been throwing off a mound at extended spring training for almost two weeks and is now ready for minor-league games. The 34-year-old will likely need numerous appearances in order to prove his major-league readiness to the Indians.

April 4, 2019 05:08 PM
Indians' Tyler Clippard: Resumes mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard (pectoral) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Wednesday's session marked Clippard's first bullpen since being shut down in mid-March with a pectoral strain. The veteran right-hander will need to build back up following his shutdown period, so he's still a ways away from returning.

March 15, 2019 05:48 PM
Indians' Tyler Clippard: Shut down at least three weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard (pectoral) will be shut down from baseball activities for three-to-four weeks, longer than the originally reported 10-to-14 days.

Clippard will still need to ramp back up following that shutdown period, so his season debut is unlikely to come earlier than late April. There's no guarantee that he'll be on the Indians' roster at that point, as he's only with the team as a non-roster invitee.

March 16, 2019 02:56 PM
Indians' Tyler Clippard: Shut down from throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard (pectoral) will be shut down from throwing for 10-to-14 days, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Clippard exited last Saturday's game with right pectoral tightness and resumed throwing Wednesday, but apparently aggravated the issue. The 34-year-old joined the Indians on a minor-league deal that has a March 20 opt-out should he not be on the major-league roster, so the team will look to reach an altered agreement to help keep him in the organization. Clippard is likely looking at a return in mid-April if all goes well.

Indians' Tyler Clippard: Feeling better and throwing again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard feels better Wednesday after he was pulled from Saturday's game with pectoral tightness, T.J. Zuppe of The Athletic reports.

Clippard will throw Wednesday and could return to game action shortly should the session go well. He'll need to return soon if he's to make the Indians' Opening Day roster.

March 9, 2019 05:28 PM
Indians' Tyler Clippard: Leaves with pectoral tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard left Saturday's game against the Rockies with pectoral tightness, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Clippard appeared to be in pain immediately after throwing a breaking ball and left with the team's training staff. It's not yet clear how serious the injury is, but any significant loss of time could put a dent in his chances of making the Indians' roster.

February 20, 2019 03:56 PM
Indians' Tyler Clippard: Inks MiLB deal with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard agreed to a minor-league contract with the Indians on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

According to Heyman, Clippard will earn $1.75 million if he makes the big-league roster and can add $1 million to his total if he reaches certain incentives. The right-hander spent 2018 with the Blue Jays, compiling a 3.67 ERA and 85:23 K:BB in 68.2 innings of work. His numbers suggest the 34-year-old still has something left in the tank, though he likely wouldn't be in contention for save opportunities if he does manage to crack the Opening Day roster.

Blue Jays' Tyler Clippard: To open Thursday vs. Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard will serve as the opener for Thursday's matchup against the Mariners, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.com reports.

Clippard has been used 53 times in relief this season, so he isn't expected to throw more than an inning or two. He's posted a 3.73 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 59 strikeouts over 50.2 innings this season. The Blue Jays are approaching Thursday's series opener as a bullpen day.

Blue Jays' Tyler Clippard: Notches seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard struck out one during a scoreless inning Sunday against the Orioles as he collected the save.

Despite hitting Tim Beckham with a pitch, Clippard managed to turn it around in his most recent appearance after blowing two consecutive saves. He's failed to convert on six save opportunities throughout the 2018 campaign, and he's posted a 3.61 ERA and 1.12 WHIP with 56 strikeouts over 47.1 innings. Clippard figures to maintain his role as the stand-in closer until Roberto Osuna returns from a suspension in early August.

Blue Jays' Tyler Clippard: Blows save Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard blew his fifth save of the season Saturday against Boston, allowing a run on two hits while striking out one batter.

Clippard has been a decent fill-in closer while Roberto Osuna remains suspended, but he failed to get the job done this time around. Entering the ninth inning with a one-run lead, he allowed back-to-back doubles to Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley before eventually getting out of the inning. Clippard will have just a few more weeks left in which to earn save chances, with Osuna expected to immediately resume closing duties upon his return Aug. 5.

Blue Jays' Tyler Clippard: Gets one-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard recorded the final out of Tuesday's game against the Mets to pick up his sixth save of the season.

John Axford got five outs after starting the eighth inning and Clippard came in with one out needed to put an end to things. His primary short-term competition for saves, Seung Hwan Oh, was unavailable with the flu, but it seems like Clippard has the slight upper hand on saves until Roberto Osuna (suspension) is eligible to return Aug. 5.

Blue Jays' Tyler Clippard: Collects fifth save Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard gave up a hit and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to pick up his fifth save of the season in a 3-2 win over the Tigers.

Ryan Tepera was left in the bullpen Friday after blowing his previous two save chances, with Seung Hwan Oh working the eighth inning and Clippard getting the call in the ninth. The three relievers could continue to swap save chances around until Roberto Osuna (suspension) returns, depending on who's got the hot hand and who's been struggling, but don't be surprised if Clippard remains in the closer role for the Jays until he falters.

Blue Jays' Tyler Clippard: Picks up fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Clippard got the save against the Angels on Sunday, working around a hit to fire a scoreless ninth inning and close out a 7-6 victory. He didn't record a strikeout or a walk.

Ryan Tepera has been acting as Toronto's primary closer, but he blew the save in this contest, allowing Clippard to convert the opportunity after the Blue Jays retook the lead. It was the fourth save of the year for the veteran right-hander, but Tepera had been performing solidly up until this performance, so Clippard figures to remain the secondary option for the time being.
