Cubs' Brandon Kintzler: Records another hold with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler pitched a scoreless eighth inning in Monday's win over the Royals to record a hold, and he now has three holds in four appearances with the Cubs.

Kintzler's first appearance with his new team Aug. 1 came in the sixth inning, but since then he's pitched exclusively in the eighth inning and has recorded a hold in each outing. The Cubs already had the likes of Carl Edwards, Steve Cishek and Pedro Strop on the roster, but they clearly view Kintzler as high-leverage arm. He might slot down a rung when Brandon Morrow (biceps) is able to return from the disabled list, but Kintzler figures to have a key role the rest of the way regardless and should be able to build on his 18 holds for the season.

Cubs' Brandon Kintzler: Dealt to Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler was traded from the Nationals to the Cubs on Tuesday for an undisclosed package, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

Kintzler, who turns 34 on Wednesday, has a 3.59 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 31 strikeouts in 42.2 innings this year for the Nationals. Despite his experience as a closer in 2016 and 2017, it seems likely that he will be used in low-to-mid-leverage situations with the Cubs. His contract carries a $10 million team option and a $5 million player option for 2019.

Nationals' Brandon Kintzler: Activated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler (forearm) was activated from the disabled list Monday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Kintzler is ready to get back at it after missing just over two weeks with his forearm injury. Kintzler's ratios this season aren't great by any means, but since giving up seven earned runs in his second through fourth appearances of the year, he does own a 2.59 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 24.1 innings over 27 outings.

Nationals' Brandon Kintzler: Embarks on rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler (forearm) will pitch for High-A Potomac on Sunday during a brief rehab assignment, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reports.

Kintzler realized that he would require a minor-league outing when he was fatigued during Friday's bullpen session. If all goes according to plan Sunday, Kintzler will travel with the team to Tampa Bay on Monday, where it's expected he will return from the disabled list.

Nationals' Brandon Kintzler: Set for another bullpen Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler (forearm) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Friday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

Kintzler, who threw an all-fastball bullpen earlier in the week, is expected to incorporate all of his pitches in Friday's session. According to Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports, the right-handed reliever believes he'll be ready to return from the disabled list if he experiences no issues Friday. That said, the Nationals may opt to play it safe and send Kintzler on a brief minor-league rehab assignment before activating him.
