Nationals' Brandon Kintzler: Takes loss in extra innings Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler (0-2) gave up a run on two hits and a walk in one inning of work to take the loss in Sunday's extra-inning defeat at the hands of the Mets.

The veteran right-hander was expected to be the solid seventh-inning bridge to closer Sean Doolittle for the Nats this season, but Kintzler has instead been scored upon in three straight appearances, saddling him with a 15.75 ERA and 3:4 K:BB through four innings. The sample size is small and there's been no indication he's trying to pitch through an injury, but even in formats where holds have value, the 33-year-old shouldn't be anywhere near an active roster until he turns things around.

Nationals' Brandon Kintzler: Rough outing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler coughed up five runs (three earned) on four hits and a walk in one inning of relief during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

The reliever hasn't had a pristine spring, but Kintzler's 6:3 K:BB in six innings indicates there's no real cause for alarm. He should slot into Sean Doolittle's setup crew this season, primarily working in the seventh inning, and Kintzler could be a valuable source of holds in that role.

Nationals' Brandon Kintzler: Primed for seventh-inning role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

First-year Nationals manager Davey Martinez said earlier in the offseason that he intends to deploy Kintzler as the team's primary seventh-inning man in 2018, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

Martinez plans to follow the late-inning model that former Washington manager Dusty Baker used to great success in the second half of the 2017 campaign, with Kintzler, Ryan Madson and closer Sean Doolittle set to work in succession when the Nationals are attempting to preserve narrow leads. Upon losing out on saves when he was dealt from the Twins to the Nationals last July, Kintzler's fantasy utility all but evaporated. He supplied a 3.46 ERA and 12 strikeouts in 26 innings with Washington over the final two months of the season, numbers that didn't make him a useful commodity outside of NL-only leagues that count holds as a category.

Nationals' Brandon Kintzler: Two-year deal with Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler agreed to a two-year, $10 million contract with Washington, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

The contract also contains an unspecified club option that could make the contract worth $16 million, according to the report. Kintzler will return to the Nationals in a setup role working ahead of Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle as he did last season. Kintzler had 28 saves with the Twins before he was traded to the Nationals at the end of July. He had just one save in Washington and his return to the Nationals likely limits his fantasy value since he'll rarely be used to close games.

Nationals' Brandon Kintzler: Earns rare save Sunday against Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler worked around a pair of hits in a scoreless inning of work to earn his 29th save of the season Sunday against the Mets.

Kintzler, who was called upon with a one-run lead, put the winning run at first with one out. He buckled down to retire the next two men, ending the danger and closing out the win. Kintzler was called upon after Sean Doolittle labored in an appearance Saturday and could see another save opportunity or two as the club manages its bullpen arms over the season's final week.
