Brewers' Corey Knebel: Looking sharp this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knebel threw 1.2 scoreless innings and struck out three batters in Thursday's spring game against the Angels.

Manager Craig Counsell let Knebel extend past an inning Thursday, and he allowed just one runner to reach base via a walk while keeping the opposition off the scoreboard for the fourth time in four appearances this spring. While he has not officially been given the closer's label -- manager Craig Counsell is notorious for avoiding those -- he has been in line to serve in that role since the end of last season, and is all but assured of doing so with fellow relievers Jeremy Jeffress (shoulder) likely opening the year on the injured list and Josh Hader providing more value in a multi-situational role.

Brewers' Corey Knebel: Scoreless inning in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knebel made his spring debut Sunday against the Reds and threw a scoreless frame.

Knebel was not his sharpest, allowing two hits and a walk, but he did strike out a batter and escaped his first appearance of 2019 without allowing a run. Coming off a dominant run through September and the postseason, Knebel is in line to open the season as the Brewers' closer for the second year in a row.

Brewers' Corey Knebel: Reaches deal with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knebel and the Brewers avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $5.125 million deal, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Knebel had a rocky 2018 campaign which included a trip to the disabled list and a brief demotion to the minors. He still finished the year with a respectable 3.58 ERA and 16 saves in 55.1 innings, backed up by an excellent 39.5 percent strikeout rate. He looked back to his usual self in the playoffs, allowing just a single run in 10 innings. He should resume his role as the Brewers' closer to start the upcoming season.

Brewers' Corey Knebel: Closes door with Jeffress unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knebel struck out three batters and picked up his 16th save of the season in Monday's victory over the Cardinals.

Incumbent closer Jeremy Jeffress was unavailable Monday due to neck spasms, so Knebel was used in his previous role, and he encountered no issues other than hitting the penultimate batter of the game. Knebel has looked like the 2017 version of himself his month, giving up just two hits while posting a 24:2 K:BB in 12.1 scoreless innings. Jeffress has been similarly effective and figures to get his job back, but the Brewers will also likely be cautious with him the rest of the way, so Knebel could be used in a save situation again before the regular season comes to a close.

Brewers' Corey Knebel: Continues to roll
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knebel pitched 1.2 scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Wednesday's victory over the Cubs. He gave up just one hit and struck out two batters in the game.

Knebel entered Wednesday's frame in the fifth inning with the Brewers up 2-0, and although he allowed an inherited runner to score, he did not cede the lead. Knebel went on to pitch a perfect sixth inning, but in a rare move, the official scorer decided to credit fellow reliever Josh Hader with the win instead. Knebel picked up a save in his previous outing, but that was with Hader and Jeremy Jeffress unavailable, and it would likely take similar circumstances for him to be used in that spot the rest of the way. Regardless, Knebel has still been producing in several categories since returning from a brief minor-league stint at the end of August, allowing just one runner to reach base while striking out 12 batters over 6.2 scoreless frames this month.
