Marlins' Anthony Bass: Handed extra-inning loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass (1-3) allowed an unearned run on a hit and a walk with two strikeouts in one inning during Sunday's extra-inning loss to Milwaukee.

Bass intentionally walked Daniel Vogelbach to pitch to Tyrone Taylor, who promptly hit a go-ahead RBI single. Miami's offense was unable to bail out Bass in the bottom of the 10th. The right-hander carries a 5.40 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 9:5 K:BB across 11.2 innings this season. He began the year as the closer, but with three blown saves early on, Bass yielded ninth-inning duties to Yimi Garcia, who pitched a scoreless inning with three strikeouts in a tied game Sunday.

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Picks up first hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass gave up a hit and a walk in a scoreless eighth inning to record his first hold of the season in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

It wasn't pretty, as Bass threw only eight of 15 pitches for strikes, but he was able to get the job done. The veteran righty has a 1.08 ERA over 8.1 innings since spitting the bit on the closer role, but his 5:3 K:BB over that stretch suggests he's still not a great fit for high-leverage work.

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Tosses scoreless outing, gets win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass (1-2) was credited with the win Friday against the Giants after tossing a scoreless inning, striking out one.

Bass was called upon to pitch the eighth inning and only needed eight pitches to get the job done -- he tossed seven of those deliveries for strikes, as he was in complete command of the zone. The right-hander lost the closer job a few days ago following a woeful start to the season, but he seems to be turning things around and has now pitched four straight scoreless outings since being removed from the closer role.

Marlins' Anthony Bass: No longer Miami's closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass seems to have lost the closer job in Miami, Craig Mish of reports.

Manager Don Mattingly said Bass has some things to work on and was non committal at best regarding the ninth inning, per Mish. Bass is 0-for-2 on save chances and has given up six earned runs in 2.1 innings through three appearances. Yimi Garcia and Dylan Floro are the top options for saves with Bass out of the role.

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Still has manager's support
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass received a vote of confidence from Marlins manager Don Mattingly after blowing his second save of the season Thursday, Christina De Nicola of reports. "I definitely think it's too early to make a judgment on that [changing closers]," Mattingly said after Thursday's loss. "Anthony's got good stuff. He's going to be fine."

While the right-hander's second loss of the season came in controversial fashion after Michael Conforto allowed himself to be hit by a pitch in the strike zone to force in the winning run, Bass had already blown the save by serving up a Jeff McNeil solo homer, not to mention loading the bases to set the stage for Conforto's walkoff HBP. Despite Mattingly's patience, Bass doesn't have the kind of track record that would give him plenty of leeway, and he'll need to turn things around quickly to hang onto ninth-inning duties.

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Another blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass (0-2) allowed two earned runs on three hits and a walk while also hitting a batter to blow the save and take the loss Thursday against the Mets.

Bass entered the game in the bottom of the ninth inning and was tasked with protecting a 2-1 lead. He quickly squandered that, surrendering a leadoff home run to Jeff McNeil. After recording one out, Bass allowed the next three batters to reach base before he hit Michael Conforto with a pitch to force in the winning run. Though there was controversy surrounding Conforto's plate appearance -- he appeared to lean into the strike zone to ensure he was hit by the ball -- Bass pitched poorly for the second time in three appearances this season. While a change at closer may not occur yet, Yimi Garcia or Dylan Floro could start to see save chances if Bass continues to struggle.

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Blows first save chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass (0-1) blew his first save of the season and took the loss Friday as the Marlins fell 6-4 to the Rays, coughing up four runs on four hits over one inning. He struck out one.

It was a brutal start to his tenure as Miami's closer. Called on to protect a 4-2 lead in the ninth inning, Bass instead gave up singles to Brandon Lowe and Yandy Diaz before the light-hitting Joey Wendle blasted a pitch into the second deck in right field, with Tampa tacking on one more run afterward for good measure. Bass has little track record as a closer, coming into the season with only 15 career saves, so he might not have much leash in the role. What job security he does have may come from the fact that the Marlins' bullpen lacks any other clear alternatives.

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Remains favorite to close
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass is the favorite to open the season as the Marlins' primary closer, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.

The right-hander has done nothing to pitch himself out of the job this spring, posting 2.16 ERA and 8:3 K:BB in 8.1 Grapefruit League innings. Bass saved 12 games over the last two seasons for the Mariners and Blue Jays, a mark he could easily exceed even if he winds up splitting ninth-inning work with Yimi Garcia.

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Solid start to spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass has yet to give up an earned run this spring over five appearances (five innings) while posting a 4:2 K:BB.

The right-hander headed into the spring in the mix for the closer role in Miami, and while he hasn't been particularly dominant, he's been much more effective than his main competition, Yimi Garcia. Bass has 12 saves over the last two seasons while seeing some ninth-inning duty for the Mariners and Jays, but the track record of Marlins manager Don Mattingly suggests he prefers having one closer over a committee, so the 33-year-old could eclipse that number quickly in 2021.

Marlins' Anthony Bass: Heading to Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass signed a two-year deal with the Marlins on Friday that includes a team option for 2023, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

The right-hander ended up finishing 2020 as Toronto's closer, posting a 3.51 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 21:9 K:BB over 25.2 innings while recording seven saves and three holds. Miami doesn't have a clear closer with spring training on the horizon, so Bass could be in the mix for the job with his new team.

Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Notches seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass struck out two over 1.1 perfect innings to record his seventh save of the season in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Orioles.

Rafael Dolis got the save Thursday, but Jays manager Charlie Montoyo elected to give his regular closer some extra rest prior to the postseason and let Bass pick up his second save of the week. The right-hander's first season with the Jays has gone well, and Bass has a 3.51 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 21:9 K:BB through 25.2 innings with two wins and three holds in addition to his saves.

Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Earns four-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass was perfect across 1.1 innings Sunday, striking out one and earning the save against the Phillies.

Bass came into the contest with two on and two out in the eighth inning and escaped the danger with a one-pitch groundout against Jay Bruce. He then needed just 13 pitches to quickly retire the top of the Phillies lineup in the ninth to earn his sixth save of the season. Bass is sporting a 3.42 ERA and 19:6 K:BB over 23.2 innings.

Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Blows save, takes loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass (2-3) allowed two runs (one earned) on a hit and a walk while recording just one out in a loss to the Red Sox on Saturday.

Bass entered with a one-run lead in the ninth inning but gave up a leadoff homer to Xander Bogaerts to tie the game. Bass then walked J.D. Martinez before Christian Vazquez reached on a fielder's choice. Vazquez would cause Bass problems, as the Red Sox catcher stole second and reached third on a throwing error by Blue Jays catcher Caleb Joseph. The collapse was complete when Vazquez scored on a Yairo Munoz fielder's choice. It was Bass's second blown save of the year. He now has a 2.79 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 15 strikeouts in 19.1 innings. The 32-year-old will likely continue as the closer in the near term, but Ken Giles (forearm) will likely assume ninth-inning duties when he returns.

Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Racks up fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass struck out one in a perfect seventh inning Friday to record his fifth save of the season during the first game of a doubleheader against the Red Sox.

After going nearly a month without a save, Bass has now picked one up in consecutive appearances. He's been effective however he's been deployed this season, posting a 2.37 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 15:4 K:BB through 19 innings, but his flexibility will likely bump him from the closer role once Ken Giles (forearm) or Jordan Romano (finger) gets healthy.

Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Back in save column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning Wednesday against the Marlins, leading to his fourth save of the season.

With the recent departure of Jordan Romano (finger) to the 10-day injured list and Ken Giles (forearm) still building up his arm strength, Bass has become the Blue Jays' only realistic candidate to handle the closer role in the short term. The right-hander earned his first save since Aug. 8 and as he was able to withhold a run from scoring for the first time in his last three appearances. Both Romano and Giles are expected back in 2020, but until either one of them returns, Bass figures to remain as the team's primary closer.

Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Still in mix for saves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass was unavailable Monday when Jordan Romano got the save but is available Tuesday against the Red Sox and manager Charlie Montoyo said he is comfortable with either pitcher saving games, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

Romano is the current Jays reliever du jour after Bass held that title a couple weeks ago. It sounds like they both will continue to get save chances in the short term, and Bass could be the guy if a save chance were to arise Tuesday. Ken Giles (forearm) continues to progress and could take the closer's job back sometime in September.

Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Takes first loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass (1-1) took the loss Saturday as the Blue Jays fell 2-1 to the Rays in 10 innings, allowing an unearned run on a hit and an intentional walk in two-thirds of an inning.

Brought in to get the final out of the ninth inning in a tie game, Bass returned for the 10th but couldn't hold Tampa at bay with the speedy Manuel Margot beginning the frame at second base. Despite the stumble, the right-hander still has a 2.13 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB through 12.2 innings, but manager Charlie Montoyo's recent usage of him suggests Bass is just one of the high-leverage arms, along with Jordan Romano and perhaps a couple others, who could get regular save chances for Toronto over the final part of the season.

Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Earns extra-inning win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass (1-0) pitched two innings, allowing just one hit and striking out three to earn the win in Tuesday's 8-7 extra-inning victory over the Orioles.

Bass was unavailable over the weekend, but he's pitched three scoreless innings in the last two games versus the Orioles. He was able to get the win Tuesday after the Blue Jays put up a run in the top of the 10th inning. Bass has a 2.45 ERA, 0.64 WHIP, nine strikeouts and three saves through 10 appearances. He should continue to be in the conversation for late-inning work when healthy.

Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Dealing with back tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass was unavailable for Sunday's doubleheader against the Rays due to back tightness, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

Bass tossed a scoreless inning with one strikeout in Friday's series opener against the Blue Jays, but he apparently suffered a back issue that prevented him from entering either of the contests in Sunday's twin bill. It's unclear whether the issue will impact his availability going forward. Bass has converted on three of his four save opportunities to begin the season while also posting a 3.38 ERA and 0.75 WHIP over eight innings.

Blue Jays' Anthony Bass: Converts third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bass pitched a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to earn the save in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Red Sox.

Bass whiffed Christian Vazquez before getting flyouts from Kevin Pillar and Jackie Bradley to finish the inning on a mere eight pitches. The 32-year-old Bass has yet to allow a run in 6.1 innings this year, with just two hits and a walk against him so far. Expect the right-hander to continue in the closer role while Ken Giles (forearm) is out.
