Diamondbacks' Matt Koch: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koch cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

No team wanted to claim Koch after he posted a 9.15 ERA in 20.2 innings of relief to start the season. With a career 4.88 ERA and a 13.1 percent strikeout rate, there's little reason to believe he'll be a significant big-league asset any time soon.

Diamondbacks' Matt Koch: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koch was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Koch was quite poor in 20.2 innings of relief, posting a 9.15 ERA while walking just 9.4 percent of opposing batters. With a career 4.88 ERA in 125.1 innings and a considerably worse 5.99 FIP, it doesn't appear particularly likely that he'll be claimed off waivers. Jon Duplantier was called up to take his spot in the bullpen.

Diamondbacks' Matt Koch: Needed again for length
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koch allowed two runs on two hits, two walks and two hit batsmen while striking out one over 4.1 innings of relief in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Cubs.

Starter Merrill Kelly had issues with his command throughout his 3.2 innings, walking seven and departing after 109 pitches. That's the ideal situation for Koch, who lost out on a bid to be a starter during spring training. This was the second time he's thrown four-plus innings in relief. It's been a rocky transition to the bullpen for Koch, who has given up 17 runs and six home runs over 13.1 innings.

Diamondbacks' Matt Koch: Fails to win rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koch will not be part of the Diamondbacks' rotation to begin the season, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

Koch posted good numbers this spring, finishing with a 3.18 in 17 innings while recording a 13:3 K:BB. Merrill Kelly will be the fifth starter for now, but Koch could be the first one called on when the team needs a spot starter.

Diamondbacks' Matt Koch: Likely part of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Koch gave up two runs on five hits while striking out six over five-plus innings Friday against the Dodgers.

Koch, who made 14 starts and five relief appearances in 2018, is widely expected to be part of the Diamondbacks' bullpen, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. The right-hander has posted a 3.18 ERA over 17 Cactus League innings. "I've been extremely impressed by what he's done," manager Torey Lovullo said. "You walk into camp and know you're competing, you're told you have to earn the spot, and when you do things like this it really stands out." Koch is out of options, so the Diamondbacks risk losing him if they want to send him down.
