Phillies' Sam Coonrod: Dealt to Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod (shoulder) was traded from the Giants to the Phillies in exchange for right-hander Carson Ragsdale on Saturday, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN reports.

Coonrod performed fairly well during his first major-league season in 2019, but he was unable to generate much production last year, converting on three of his five save chances while posting a 9.82 ERA and 1.64 WHIP over 14.2 innings. The right-hander was hindered by a shoulder injury late in the season, but he should be healthy heading into spring training. He'll attempt to generate more of a rhythm for the Phillies, although Hector Neris has a fairly stable grip on the closing job heading into 2021.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder strain Saturday.

Coonrod was experiencing shoulder discomfort when he came out of Friday's game, and he won't be available for at least 10 days as a result. It's unclear whether he could be available if the Giants make a run in the playoffs. Right-hander Rico Garcia was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Blown save in nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod allowed three runs on two hits and a walk while fanning one in one-third of an inning and was tagged with the loss against the Padres on Friday.

Coonrod entered the game in the bottom of the seventh inning looking to close things out for the Giants, but he didn't have his best stuff and the Padres took advantage of that. He recorded one out and allowed two baserunners -- from a single and a walk -- before allowing a walkoff homer to Trent Grisham. This was Coonrod's second straight blown save, and he might be removed from late-inning duties moving forward, although that'll only be relevant if the Giants make the playoffs.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Collects third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod earned the save against Colorado on Tuesday, pitching a perfect ninth inning and striking out two.

Coonrod was called upon to protect a three-run lead and succeeded with ease, throwing 10 of his 12 pitches for strikes and punching out a pair. The right-hander has now struck out nine batters over his last six innings and appears to be a trusted ninth-inning option for a team without an established closer. His three saves this season rank second on the squad to the four collected by the injured Trevor Gott (elbow).

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Records four-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod allowed a solo home run but earned the four-out save in Monday's win over Arizona.

Coonrod yielded a leadoff homer to David Peralta in the ninth inning but quickly recorded the next three outs to finish off the save. Despite converting his only two save opportunities this season, the 27-year-old year still owns an unsightly 8.10 ERA over 10 innings.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Perfect inning for save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod pitched a perfect ninth inning to earn the save in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Coonrod retired Starling Marte, David Peralta and Christian Walker on groundouts, needing 14 pitches to complete the clean outing. The 27-year-old reliever hasn't seen much ninth-inning usage this year -- Sunday was his first save to go with two holds in eight appearances. Both Tony Watson and Taylor Rogers put in scoreless efforts before Coonrod took the mound. Through 7.1 innings, Coonrod has a 3.68 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and five strikeouts.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod (lat) was activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday.

The 27-year-old went down with the right lat strain at the end of July, but he's now healthy after spending three-plus weeks on the shelf. Coonrod allowed three runs on four hits with a 2:3 K:BB over his first 3.2 innings of the season.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Slated for sim games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod (lat) traveled to San Francisco's alternate training site to throw live batting practice, and he's on track to begin simulated games later in the week, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Coonrod continues to make steady progress from a lat injury, however, he remains without a concrete timetable for a return. He's surrendered three runs on four hits while fanning two over 3.2 innings so far this season.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod (lat) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Friday, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

Coonrod was able to resume throwing Friday, but a timetable for his return still isn't known. The right-hander will be re-evaluated Saturday, after which a better idea of his status could come into focus. Coonrod has been dealing with a right lat strain that has kept him sidelined since the end of July.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Yet to resume throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod (lat) remains in physical therapy and is set to be re-evaluated at the end of the week, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Coonrod landed on the 10-day injured list Friday but still hasn't resumed throwing. The team hopes that he'll be able to begin a throwing program over the weekend if his evaluation at the end of the week goes well. It's still unclear when the right-hander could return to action. Coonrod tossed 3.2 innings over four appearances to begin the season, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Sidelined with strained lat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod landed on the 10-day injured list with a right lat strain Friday.

Coonrod has made four appearances this season, allowing three runs in 3.2 innings. His expected return date is not yet clear. Sam Selman was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Adds cutter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod has added a cutter to his arsenal this spring, Mark W. Sanchez of reports.

The 27-year-old righty made his big-league debut last season and finished with a 3.58 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 50 percent groundball rate. Strikeouts eluded him (17.5 percent strikeout rate) and he issued too many walks (13.2 percent), but he was nonetheless effective. His average fastball velocity (96.6 mph) ranked in the 93rd percentile while his curveball spin was in the 90th percentile. With the addition of a cutter, he may be able to keep hitters off balance, which could lead to more strikeouts. Tony Watson is the de facto favorite to open the year as the closer, but there are no defined roles at this point in camp, so Coonrod could pitch his way into a high-leverage role. He gave up two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two and blowing a save in one inning during his first appearance of the spring.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Gives up two runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod surrendered two runs on two hits over two-thirds of an inning in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Pittsburgh.

Coonrod entered the eighth inning with a five-run lead, but the righty's struggles helped contribute to the Pirates getting back into the game. The 26-year-old has pitched relatively well for the Giants this season, posting a 3.22 ERA despite carrying an ugly 1.4 K/BB ratio through 22.1 innings. The timing of Coonrod's rough outing couldn't have been worse, as closer Will Smith (back) was unavailable, and it was rookie Shaun Anderson who came in to clean up the mess created for his first career save. The latter figures to see any additional save chances until Smith is ready to return, while Coonrod projects to stick in middle relief.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Collects relief win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod (3-0) retired both batters he faced and earned the win in Saturday's 10-5 victory over the Athletics.

Coonrod recorded the final two outs of the seventh inning and became the pitcher of record when the Giants rallied for eight runs in the eighth. The 26-year-old has allowed four runs on five hits and six walks across 9.2 innings in August. Overall, he has a 2.55 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 17.2 innings this season despite an unsightly 10:10 K:BB.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Role could increase
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod walked a batter over a scoreless inning in Thursday's 10-2 loss to the Phillies.

Coonrod was one of just two pitchers who managed to hold the Phillies' bats scoreless in a blowout loss. The 26-year-old has given up just one run over nine innings this year (7:5 K:BB ratio). Continued success could lead to the rookie seeing increased hold opportunities after the Giants dealt two of their right-handed relievers at the deadline.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Needs just five pitches Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod did not allow a baserunner or strike out a batter over a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Cubs.

Coonrod needed just five pitches to make quick work of a portion of the Cubs' lineup that consisted of Kyle Schwarber and Javier Baez. The 26-year-old has performed well when called upon in brief stints in the majors this year, giving up just one run and striking out four over six innings. Coonrod will likely find himself back in the minors when the Giants require a fifth starter late next week.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Called up by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

Coonrod has made four appearances for the Giants this season, allowing one run in four innings of work. He owns a poor 6.96 ERA in 32.1 innings for Sacramento. Conner Menez was optioned in a corresponding move.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

The right-hander was called up to serve as the 26th man for the Giants' doubleheader Monday against the Rockies, and he ended up pitching a scoreless ninth inning in the first game with San Francisco leading 19-2. He carries an ERA of 7.42 at the Triple-A level this season.

Giants' Sam Coonrod: Called up as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coonrod will join the Giants as their 26th man for Monday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Coonrod has appeared in three games for the Giants this season, allowing one run in three innings of work. He's spent most of the season with Triple-A Sacramento, where he owns a poor 7.42 ERA in 30.1 innings. He'll likely pitch in a low-leverage role if he appears at all.

June 2, 2019 11:40 AM
Giants' Sam Coonrod: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants optioned Coonrod to Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.

Coonrod had been working in a low-leverage role out of the bullpen after being called up from Triple-A on May 26, appearing in three games and giving up one run over three frames. With the Giants in need of an extra catcher (Aramis Garcia) while Buster Posey remains day-to-day with a hamstring injury, Coonrod became an expendable piece.
