Royals' Domingo Tapia: Slips up in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (4-1) gave up three runs on four hits in one-third of an inning, taking the loss Saturday versus Detroit.

The right-hander has had few missteps this year, but he endured a big one during an ugly sixth inning Saturday. Tapia allowed consecutive singles before Miguel Cabrera and Jeimer Candelario combined to plate three runs on back-to-back doubles. That was enough to give Tapia his first big-league loss while ballooning his ERA to 2.61 with a 1.19 WHIP and 25:13 K:BB across 31 innings this season. He's now given up runs in each of his last two outings, but he was on a 13-inning scoreless streak prior to this series versus the Tigers.

Royals' Domingo Tapia: Records fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (4-0) allowed a run on two hits and a walk in one inning, earning the win Friday versus Detroit.

The right-hander took a blown save when he allowed a game-tying RBI single to Eric Haase in the sixth inning, but Kansas City restored its lead in the seventh. Tapia saw his 13-inning scoreless streak end Friday, but he's still given up just three runs with a 20:11 K:BB in 25.2 innings since the start of August. He owns a 1.76 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 25:13 K:BB over 30.2 innings overall while gradually working into more high-leverage spots.

Royals' Domingo Tapia: Collects third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (3-0) picked up the win in the second game of Monday's doubleheader sweep of Cleveland, striking out four over 1.2 perfect innings of relief.

The Royals went with a bullpen game in the nightcap, and after Joel Payamps gave up a run over 2.1 innings as the starter, Tapia entered the game with Kansas City already ahead in an eventual 4-2 victory. The 30-year-old right-hander has a 1.63 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB through 27.2 innings since joining the Royals' bullpen in late July, recording five holds in addition to his three wins.

Royals' Domingo Tapia: Snares win Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (2-0) pitched 1.2 perfect innings, recording one strikeout and earning the win Monday versus Baltimore.

The 30-year-old relieved starter Kris Bubic with one out in the sixth inning and managed to keep Kansas City's deficit to one run. Tapia then picked up the win as the Royals pulled ahead in the eighth inning. He's strung together 5.1 scoreless innings across his last five appearances, allowing two hits and three walks with four strikeouts in that span. For the year, he has a 2.05 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 19:12 K:BB across 22 innings overall.

Royals' Domingo Tapia: Strong pitching lately
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia logged a scoreless inning with one hit allowed and two strikeouts during Sunday's 6-0 win over the White Sox.

The right-hander has yielded just two runs on six hits and 10 walks while striking out 13 in his last 15.1 innings. While the walk rate is concerning, Tapia has been successful at limiting the damage recently. He's pitched to a 2.21 ERA with a 1.28 WHIP and 18:12 K:BB through 20.1 innings between Kansas City and Seattle this year. He's added a win and three holds with the Royals, but he's not likely to be in the closer committee despite the decent results.

Royals' Domingo Tapia: Snares win over Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (1-0) retired the only batter he faced to earn the win Wednesday versus Houston.

The right-hander needed only four pitches to induce a fielder's choice off the bat of Jose Altuve to end the seventh inning. Tapia became the pitcher of record when Hunter Dozier restored Kansas City's lead in the home half of the frame. Through 13.1 innings between the Royals and the Mariners, Tapia has a 2.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 13:6 K:BB. He's become a fairly reliable low-leverage option for manager Mike Matheny.

Royals' Domingo Tapia: Solid addition to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia has a 3.86 ERA over seven innings this season.

Since he was called up from Triple-A Omaha on July 23, he's posted four scoreless outings. Tapia's one mistake was a disastrous inning versus Toronto on July 30 in which he yielded three runs. The 30-year-old reliever is unlikely to step into a high-leverage role, but he's been able to pitch without yielding too many baserunners (nine hits, three walks). A 4.67 FIP suggests regression could pop up at any time, especially when hitters have a .381 BABIP against Tapia, though it's worth noting the small sample size.

July 24, 2021 02:36 PM
Royals' Domingo Tapia: Called up by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

The right-hander has been at Triple-A Omaha since behind acquired from the Mariners in late May, and he'll join the Royals for the first time Friday. Tapia has a 4.50 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 22:15 K:BB across 22 innings with Omaha this season.

Royals' Domingo Tapia: Acquired by Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was traded from the Mariners to the Royals in exchange for cash considerations Saturday.

Tapia was designated for assignment Monday. The 29-year-old's major-league resume to date consists of just seven relief appearances over the last two years. He'll head to Triple-A Omaha for now.

May 17, 2021 07:16 PM
Mariners' Domingo Tapia: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was designated for assignment Monday.

Tapia made a pair of appearances for the Mariners in early May, throwing two scoreless innings. He'll make way on the 40-man roster for the Mariners to select Brady Lail's contract.

Mariners' Domingo Tapia: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was optioned to the Mariners' alternate training site Tuesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Tapia gave up four hits in two innings over two appearances, but he did not allow a run. He should continue to serve as organizational bullpen depth.

Mariners' Domingo Tapia: Scoreless frame in '21 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia, just recalled from the alternate training site Thursday, fired a scoreless ninth inning during which he allowed two hits and didn't record any walks or strikeouts in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

The big right-hander's promotion to the big-league roster was a direct result of Marco Gonzales' (forearm) placement on the injured list, so his stay may not last beyond his teammate's absence. However, manager Scott Servais saw Saturday's low-leverage scenario as a good opportunity to get a look at Tapia, who posted a 2.08 ERA and 1.38 WHIP across his first 4.1 big-league innings with the Red Sox in 2020.

Mariners' Domingo Tapia: Joins big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was recalled by the Mariners on Thursday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Tapia joins the roster with Marco Gonzales (forearm) landing on the injured list. While he'll take Gonzales' roster spot, he's unlikely to fill in for him in the rotation, as he's been almost exclusively a reliever in recent seasons. He struggled to a 5.18 ERA in 66 innings at the Triple-A level in 2019 before allowing one run in 4.1 innings in his big-league debut for the Red Sox last year.

Mariners' Domingo Tapia: Joins taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (oblique) will be included on the Mariners' taxi squad for their upcoming eight-game road trip that begins Thursday in Boston, Daniel Kramer of reports.

Tapia's inclusion on the taxi squad implies that he's healthy again after he missed a good chunk of time in spring training due to a right oblique strain. If Tapia isn't called up from the taxi squad at any point during the road trip, he'll likely be making his 2021 debut at Triple-A Tacoma, which is set to begin its season in May.

Mariners' Domingo Tapia: Heading to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (oblique) was optioned to the alternate training site Wednesday, Daniel Kramer of reports.

The 29-year-old suffered an oblique strain in early March and missed out on Seattle's Opening Day roster. Tapia appears to be in the final stages of his recovery after completing a 20-pitch simulated game last week, and he should be available for promotion relatively soon.

Mariners' Domingo Tapia: Looks good in sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (oblique) threw 20 pitches in a simulated game Friday afternoon and consistently kept his fastball in the 97-98 mph range, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

The encouraging outing marked Tapia's first appearance since straining his oblique March 8. The amount of time the right-hander has missed has likely eliminated any chance of making the Opening Day roster. Tapia, who posted a 2.08 ERA across 4.1 innings in his first five big-league appearances with the Red Sox last season, could definitely log time in the majors at some point in the 2021 campaign.

Mariners' Domingo Tapia: Ready to play catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (oblique) will play catch Wednesday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Tapia was diagnosed with a strained right oblique at the start of last week. He'll wind up being shut down for just over a week, and the delay may make it tough for him to get up to speed by Opening Day.

Mariners' Domingo Tapia: Suffers oblique strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was diagnosed with a strained right oblique Monday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Tapia was claimed off waivers from the Red Sox in October and is in the mix for a bullpen spot, though the injury may take him out of consideration for the Opening Day roster depending on how much time he's forced to miss. He allowed one run in 4.1 innings in his big-league debut last year.

October 23, 2020 05:24 PM
Mariners' Domingo Tapia: Claimed by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia (biceps) was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Friday.

The 29-year-old was designated for assignment by the Red Sox, and the Mariners didn't allow him to pass by on the waiver wire. Tapia made his big-league debut in 2020 and gave up one run on four hits with four strikeouts and two walks over 4.1 innings before landing on the injured list with a right biceps contusion. Barring a setback, the right-hander shouldn't have any issues being ready for the start of spring training in February.

September 25, 2020 06:24 PM
Red Sox's Domingo Tapia: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapia was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right biceps contusion Friday.

While the injury doesn't appear to be a particularly significant one, its timing means Tapia is done for the year. He made five appearances this season in his big-league debut, allowing one run on four hits in 4.1 innings of relief work. Austin Brice (lat) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.
