Cubs' Brandon Kintzler: Grabs first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler (1-0) earned the win Saturday against the Cardinals, pitching a scoreless inning of relief with two strikeouts.

Chicago starter Yu Darvish was ineffective, but the Cubs rallied to tie the game at 5-5. Kintzler kept it that way with his work in the top of the eighth inning, then grabbed the win when Chicago scored again in the bottom of the frame. The 34-year-old righty has stood out for the Cubs this year with a 2.45 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and 13 strikeouts through 14.2 innings.

Cubs' Brandon Kintzler: Struggles in high-scoring loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler allowed three runs on four hits in an inning of work during Friday's 13-10 loss to the Brewers. He struck out two.

Kintzler was the fifth Chicago pitcher of the game and he allowed Milwaukee to extend its lead to 13-5 on a three-run home run by Eric Thames. The righty now has a 7.36 ERA through four appearances this season, which comes on the heels of a disappointing 4.60 ERA in 2018.

Cubs' Brandon Kintzler: Could get high-leverage work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler could work in high-leverage spots while relievers such as Brandon Morrow (elbow) and Pedro Strop (hamstring) are out, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Strop expects to be back by Opening Day, and if that happens, he is expected to be the fill-in closer for Morrow until sometime in May. However, a lengthier absence from Strop would force the Cubs to dig deeper into their bullpen for a closer. Kintzler is noted as a possibility, and the 34-year-old does have 48 career saves, but he's likely a bit behind the likes of Steve Cishek and Carl Edwards at the moment, especially because Kintzler posted an unsightly 7.00 ERA in 18 innings with Chicago last season. Still, Kintzler could at least get some holds with Morrow and Strop out.

Cubs' Brandon Kintzler: Exercises player option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kintzler elected to exercise his $5 million play option to remain with the Cubs in 2019, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

As expected, Kintzler will not hit the open market following a shaky 2018 campaign that saw him log a 4.60 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 60.2 innings split between Chicago and Washington. Prior to his decision, the Cubs unsurprisingly turned down their $10 million team option on Kintzler.

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.
