Coonrod (1-2) struck out one in 1.1 perfect innings to earn the win against the Nationals on Sunday.
Coonrod struggled at the end of May, but he's now tossed 1.2 scoreless innings across his last two appearances. He earned his first win of the season Sunday and has now posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 24 innings across 23 relief appearances in 2021.
Coonrod (0-1) allowed three runs on three hits and a walk in one inning in Wednesday's loss to Miami.
The right-hander melted down in the eighth inning, allowing a two-run single to Jon Berti and an RBI single to Jose Devers to waste a good start from Aaron Nola. Coonrod has faltered with five runs allowed in his last three appearances after a strong start to the year. The 28-year-old has amassed two saves, three blown saves and six holds while pitching to a 2.86 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 23:4 K:BB in 22 innings (20 appearances). The runs he allowed Wednesday were the first he's given up this season that didn't come via home runs.
Coonrod allowed two hits and struck out one across 1.2 innings to earn the save Tuesday against the Brewers.
The Phillies were faced with a depleted bullpen Tuesday, as Jose Alvarado was serving a suspension and Hector Neris was likely unavailable after throwing 1.2 frames a day earlier. That left Coonrod in the closer role, and he managed his second save of the season. Though both Neris and Alvarado figure to earn save chances ahead of Coonrod, his usage as the closer in their absence early on this season is worth noting.
Coonrod allowed a walk and struck out one in one inning to earn the save in Friday's 2-1 win over the Mets.
Closer Hector Neris pitched three of the previous four days and needed rest, so Coonrod was given an opportunity for a save. He did well, as a two-out walk to Brandon Nimmo was the only blemish in Coonrod's performance. The 28-year-old right-hander has a 1.50 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 13:2 K:BB across 12 innings this season. He's picked up two holds and two blown saves in 11 outings.
Coonrod threw two scoreless innings in his Phillies debut Monday against the Mets, striking out three and allowing one hit.
Coonrod kept the deficit at two in the sixth and seventh innings of a game that the Phillies would eventually come back to win 5-3. Coonrod's multi-inning usage likely indicates he isn't ticketed for high-leverage work anytime soon, but it was an encouraging outing nonetheless for the righty.
The Phillies announced Wednesday that Coonrod will be included in the team's Opening Day bullpen.
Coonrod's spot on the roster looked tenuous earlier in camp, but he was able to solidify his place in the bullpen after finishing the spring with a 0.96 ERA, 0.64 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB in 9.1 innings. Despite Coonrod's solid showing in the Grapefruit League, he'll enter the season behind at least closer Hector Neris and top setup men Jose Alvarado and Archie Bradley for saves and holds. That will make it tough to extract fantasy value from Coonrod, even if he maintains those excellent ratios over what will likely be a low volume of innings in relief.
Coonrod may be on the outside looking in on Opening Day, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
The Phillies acquired Coonrod in exchange for their 2020 fourth-round pick Carson Ragsdale in January. He still has options remaining and owns a career 5.74 ERA, so while the team must have seen something in him to bother trading for him, he's certainly not a lock to win a job. Gelb's latest roster projection, based on conversations with scouts and team officials, has Coonrod losing the battle to JoJo Romero for one of the final bullpen spots. Which pitcher wins the job may depend in part on how many southpaws the Phillies want to carry; Coonrod throws right-handed, while Romero is a lefty.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
Coonrod (lat) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Friday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com 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.
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.
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.
Coonrod has added a cutter to his arsenal this spring, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR.com 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.
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.
