Diamondbacks' T.J. McFarland: Converts extra-innings save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFarland pitched a scoreless inning and recorded the save Friday in the Diamondbacks' extra-innings victory.

Brad Boxberger had blown the save in the 11th, but after Arizona grabbed a 12-1 lead in the 13th, McFarland faced the minimum in the bottom half to wrap up the marathon. Despite McFarland's sparkling 2.12 ERA, getting these high-leverage spots will not be a frequent occurrence moving forward for the southpaw, who doesn't have a single hold this year and is saved for matchup and mop-up duty in normal games.

Diamondbacks' T.J. McFarland: Hurt by long ball Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFarland was tagged for two runs on three hits in 1.2 innings of relief in Monday's 10-3 loss to the Giants.

After yielding only two home runs over his first 35.1 innings of the season, McFarland has now served up long balls in back-to-back appearances, with Nick Hundley taking the lefty deep in the bottom of the eighth inning to put the finishing touches on the Giants' blowout win. Despite the cracks he has shown of late, McFarland has been solid on the whole as a long man out of the Arizona bullpen this season,posting a 2.37 ERA and 1.21 WHIP while working mostly in low-leverage spots.

Diamondbacks' T.J. McFarland: Blanks Brewers in long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFarland covered 2.2 scoreless innings in long relief during the Diamondbacks' 8-2 loss to the Brewers on Thursday. He gave up a walk and a hit and struck out one.

McFarland retired eight of the 10 batters he faced in an efficient 40 pitches, sparing Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo from having to overwork his relief corps in the blowout loss. With a 1.46 ERA and 0.97 WHIP across 12.1 innings in his last five appearances, McFarland has been exceptional in long relief of late, though most of his work has come with the outcome of the game already decided. With Robbie Ray (oblique) still on the mend and seemingly unlikely to return by the end of the month, McFarland could get the opportunity to temporarily fill the final spot in Arizona's five-man rotation. The Diamondbacks will next require a fifth starter Tuesday in Milwaukee, so if McFarland goes unused out of the bullpen in the three-game series with the Mets over the weekend, he might be the top candidate to replace Ray.

Diamondbacks' T.J. McFarland: Picks up win in extras
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFarland covered 1.1 scoreless frames in relief to pick up the win Tuesday in the Diamondbacks' 8-5 triumph over the Dodgers in 12 innings. He struck out one and retired all four batters he faced.

McFarland was considered a spot-start candidate for Thursday's series opener against the Nationals with Braden Shipley (elbow) surprisingly joining Robbie Ray (oblique) on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, but the 16-pitch, four-out appearance probably takes that off the table. If manager Torey Lovullo does tab the lefty for the Thursday start on short rest, it would likely be as part of a bullpen game that would result in McFarland facing a limited pitch count.

Diamondbacks' T.J. McFarland: Option to replace Ray
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFarland is an option to replace Robbie Ray (oblique) in the starting rotation, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic Arizona reports.

Ray landed on the disabled list with a Grade 2 oblique strain Monday. McFarland has been solid as a long reliever this season, compiling a 2.25 ERA across 16 innings (eight appearances), so there's a chance manager Torey Lovullo shifts him to a starting role until Ray is ready to return. The Diamondbacks could also opt to turn to their farm if they want to keep McFarland in long-relief role.
