Andriese picked up the save against the Rockies on Sunday, striking out four across two scoreless innings. He did not allow a baserunner.
After Andriese picked up his first save of the campaign in Saturday's win, manager Joe Maddon didn't hesitate to go right back to the right-hander Sunday. Andriese logged two clean innings, striking out four Rockies while not allowing a baserunner. Though Ty Buttrey and Felix Pena have received the bulk of save opportunities in recent weeks, it would not be surprising to see Andriese get another shot to close going forward.
Andriese earned the save against Colorado on Saturday, pitching a perfect inning and striking out one batter.
With usual closer Ty Buttrey having been deployed in the 10th inning, the Angels turned to Andriese to shut the door on the Rockies after jumping to a three-run lead. The right-hander was up to the task, needing only seven pitches to nail down the save. Andriese hasn't been all that effective for the Angels this season -- he has a 5.40 ERA over 10 outings -- so he'll likely resume his low-leverage role moving forward.
Andriese (1-2) was tagged with the loss against Seattle on Monday, throwing 1.2 innings and allowing one run on one hit and one walk while striking out two.
Andriese came on in the fifth inning and retired the final two batters of the frame, but a Jose Marmolejos solo homer in the following inning was enough to saddle the right-hander with a loss in the low-scoring affair. Andriese had aspirations of starting to begin the season but has struggled throughout the campaign, posting a 6.41 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 19.2 innings.
Andriese allowed one run on three hits in three innings of relief against the Mariners on Wednesday. He struck out one batter.
Andriese piggybacked Julio Teheran, who lasted just 2.2 innings as he continues to build up his workload. The right-hander now owns a 4.35 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 7:4 K:BB through 10.1 innings this season. According to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register, manager Joe Maddon said he really likes Andriese in the bullpen, so it's possible he shifts to a long-relief role moving forward.
Andriese (0-1) allowed four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out only one in 1.2 innings in a loss to the Astros on Friday.
Andriese's short outing Friday forced to Angels to dig deep into the bullpen, ultimately using nine total pitchers in the high-scoring battle with the Astros. It was Andriese's first start of the year -- he previously tossed 5.2 scoreless innings against the Athletics in relief of Shohei Ohtani on July 26. The bad outing inflated Andriese's ERA to 4.91 in 7.1 innings this season. He's expected to face the Rangers on the road next Friday in his next start.
Andriese allowed just three hits and a walk while striking out five in 5.2 innings in relief of Shohei Ohtani during Sunday's loss to the Athletics.
Andriese was needed in a long-relief role Sunday as Ohtani failed to record an out in the first inning. Andriese performed admirably on short notice, allowing the Angels to pull within a run while he was on the mound. The 30-year-old right-hander will all but certainly not make his scheduled start Tuesday versus the Mariners -- it remains to be seen when he'll start his first game of the year.
Andriese indicated that he has added a cutter and two-seam/sinker to his arsenal now that he has shifted back to starting, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Andriese has utilized both the cutter and the two-seamer in the past, most notably early in his career as a starter with Tampa Bay. The right-hander was used exclusively in relief with Arizona last season and consequently relied almost entirely on his four-seamer (49.6 percent usage) and changeup (37.0 percent usage). Andriese has posted a 4.64 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 202:63 K:BB over 236.2 innings in 49 career starts.
Andriese unofficially threw 77 pitches in a five-inning intrasquad outing Friday, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four, per Trent Rush of Angels Radio Network.
Andriese was named the Angels' fifth starter Wednesday and responded with an effective five-inning appearance Friday. His first regular-season appearance is likely to come against Seattle on July 28.
Andriese will open the season as the Angels' fifth starter, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Manager Joe Maddon announced the decision Wednesday. Andriese's spot in the rotation is presumably tied to the continued absence of Julio Teheran, though given Maddon's likely use of a six-man rotation this season, Andriese could stick as a starter even after Teheran returns. In 49 career starts, Andriese has posted a 4.64 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 202:63 K:BB over 236.2 innings.
Andriese has been stretching out to be a starter and could still be a part of the Angels' rotation, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Andriese had been lining up for a possible starting role prior to the suspension of spring training, but the return to health of both Shohei Ohtani and Griffin Canning (elbow) seemingly put a damper on those hopes. However, the uncertain nature of the 2020 campaign magnifies the need for teams to have extra flexibility among their pitching staffs, and Andriese is a logical candidate for an open starting spot given his history as a starter in the majors. As it stands, the Angels are currently unsure when presumed starter Julio Teheran, who has yet to report to camp for undisclosed reasons, will be ready to resume baseball activities or whether he will be available to pitch at the start of the season.
Andriese is a strong candidate to open the season in the Angels' roatation, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Andriese was already being looked at as a starter before it was revealed that Griffin Canning (elbow) would likely begin the season on the injured list. That opens the No. 4 spot in the rotation, which is likely to go to Andriese in light of his solid spring (one earned run and six strikeouts in nine innings). Though the right-hander has been a starter for much of his career, 90 of his last 95 appearances have come out of the bullpen.
Andriese will come to camp as a starting pitcher following his trade to the Angels on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
The 30-year-old owns a career 4.64 ERA in 49 starts. In 2019 for the Diamondbacks, his first season spent entirely in the bullpen, he posted a mediocre 4.71 ERA. Moving to the rotation would give him a better shot at fantasy relevance than a middle-relief role would, though the fact that he'll enter camp as a starter doesn't guarantee that he'll enter the regular season as one.
Andriese was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Angels on Tuesday in exchange for Jeremy Beasley, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Andriese appeared in 54 games for the Diamondbacks last year as he operated out of the bullpen for the full season. The right-hander recorded a 4.71 ERA with a 79:27 K:BB over 70.2 innings while working mainly lower-leverage situations. The Angels' bullpen lacks experience, so it's possible Andriese could receive some consideration in more high-leverage situations if he can continue to develop. He also may be in line for a back-end starter's job.
Andriese avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1,395,000 deal with Arizona on Friday, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Andriese served as a full-time reliever for the first time last season, posting an unimpressive 4.71 ERA in 70.2 innings. He did at least post career highs in strikeout rate (25.5 percent) and groundball rate (50.3 percent), but he's unlikely to pitch in a fantasy-relevant role this season.
Andriese (foot) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list prior to Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
He has been on the shelf since July 19 with a bruised foot. Andriese has a 5.91 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 51 strikeouts in 45.2 innings. Look for him to return to a low-to-mid-leverage role.
Andriese (foot) threw a second bullpen session Monday since landing on the injured list, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Andriese was placed on the IL on July 20 with a left foot contusion. A former starter for Tampa Bay, Andriese has worked out of the bullpen for the Diamondbacks. There's a possibility Arizona could build up his innings to start if it trades any current members of the rotation, such as Zack Greinke and/or Robbie Ray, at the deadline.
Andriese landed on the 10-day injured list with a left foot contusion Saturday.
Andriese owns a poor 5.91 ERA in 45.2 innings this season. His peripherals are respectable, though, as his 9.7 percent walk rate isn't terrible and both his 24.8 percent strikeout rate and 50.8 percent groundball rate are better than average. It's not yet clear how much time he's expected to miss. Stefan Crichton was recalled in a corresponding move.
Andriese will not be promoted to the starting rotation, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
The Diamondbacks are considering replacing Zack Godley in the rotation, but manager Torey Lovullo is loathe to remove Andriese from his role in the bullpen. "He hasn't really entered the equation for me because he's been throwing the ball exceptionally well out of the bullpen, and I don't want to disrupt that," Lovullo said. "At this point in time, we're going to keep him where he's at and let him continue helping us win games in that area." Andriese has been Arizona's long man out of the 'pen, pitching 18.2 innings over 10 appearances.
Andriese allowed three hits and one walk while striking out three over three innings to earn his first save in Friday's 8-3 win over the Cubs.
Andriese, a former starter, has been filling a long-relief role for the Diamondbacks. Seven of his nine appearances have lasted at least two innings. The right-hander is 3-0 with an 18:8 K:BB over 16.2 innings.
Andriese (2-0) allowed one hit and struck out two over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Rangers.
Andriese, who's pitched multiple innings in all three of his appearances, was the pitcher of record when the Diamondbacks put up a three-spot in the bottom of the ninth in a come-from-behind victory. It's the second time Andriese has picked up the "W" when Arizona rallied for a late-inning win. The Diamondbacks rank sixth in MLB with 1.91 runs scored per game over the final three innings.
