Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Logs fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton tossed one-third of a scoreless inning Friday as he earned the save in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Rockies. He allowed no hits and no walks while striking out zero.

Crichton has been dominant recently while serving as the Diamondbacks' closer, and he's now had seven consecutive scoreless outings. He's converted on five of his seven save chances while posting a 2.42 ERA and 1.19 ERA over 26 innings this year.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Perfect inning for save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton pitched a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout to earn the save in Friday's 6-3 win over the Astros.

Crichton had no trouble protecting a three-run lead, earning his fourth save of the year, all of which have come within the last week. The 28-year-old has taken a firm grip on the closer role, and he has a 2.66 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 23:9 k:BB across 24.2 innings this season. He hasn't allowed a baserunner in his last five appearances.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Picks up save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton picked up the save in Wednesday's win over the Angels after pitching a scoreless inning during which he allowed no hits or walks and didn't record a strikeout.

Crichton allowed a baserunner due to a throwing error, but he still closed out the frame on just seven pitches. This was Crichton's third straight save and second in as many days, and he seems to be in full control of the closing duties for the Diamondbacks for the time being.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Notches second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton earned the save against the Angels on Tuesday, inducing three flyball outs in a perfect ninth inning.

Crichton was tasked with protecting a one-run lead against the heart of the Angels' lineup -- Mike Trout, Anthony Rendon and Albert Pujols -- and came through by retiring all three batters. It was the second straight successful save conversion for Crichton, who appears to have seized control of the closer role for the Diamondbacks. The right-hander has posted a 2.78 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 22:9 K:BB over 22.2 innings this season.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Locks down first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton earned the save against the Mariners on Friday after recording the final two outs of the ninth inning.

With the Diamondbacks leading by one in the ninth inning, Alex Young returned to continue his long relief outing. After recording the first out of the frame, Arizona turned to Crichton to finish things off, which he did with ease, striking out Evan White and forcing Luis Torrens to ground out. It was the first save of the season for the 28-year-old, who sports a 2.91 ERA and 1.43 WHIP across 21 appearances. With their recent ninth-inning struggles, the Diamondbacks appear to be using a closer-by-committee approach for the time being.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Stuck with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton (2-2) gave up two runs on two hits and struck out one in one-third of an inning, taking the loss Sunday versus the Giants.

Crichton put two runners on in the eighth inning, and reliever Archie Bradley allowed both of them to score, which gave the Giants a lead they wouldn't relinquish. It's the second time in three appearances Crichton has recorded just one out while allowing a pair of runs. He's seen his ERA inflate to 3.24 with a 1.56 WHIP and 18 strikeouts across 16.2 innings this year.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Takes loss against Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton (2-1) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against Colorado. He allowed two runs on two hits and two walks in just one-third of an inning.

Crichton entered the game in the top of the seventh and struggled badly, allowing four straight baserunners and loading up the bases before departing with just one out. This was his worst outing of the season and ended a streak of six straight scoreless appearances for the 28-year-old right-hander.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Earns second win of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton (2-0) earned the win Monday against the Athletics after pitching a scoreless ninth inning.

Crichton came into the game in the top of the ninth with the game tied 3-3, and he only needed five pitches -- four strikes -- to get the three outs. David Peralta delivered a walkoff single in the bottom of the ninth and, as such, Crichton earned his second win of the season. He has not allowed runs in any of his last four appearances while fanning five and walking two in 5.2 innings during that stretch.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Earns first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton (1-0) picked up a relief win in Saturday's 7-6 win over the Padres. He struck out two over two scoreless and hitless innings.

Alex Young, who was filling in for Madison Bumgarner (back), was not stretched out enough and lasted just 4.1 innings, leaving the game in the hands of Arizona relievers. Crichton ushered the Diamondbacks through the sixth and seventh innings when the offense plated six runs. Crichton has not allowed a run in nine of 10 outings and lowered his ERA to 1.86 over 9.2 innings.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Makes another early appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton allowed one hit over two-thirds of an inning in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Crichton entered in the fifth inning for starter Robbie Ray, who left with the Diamondbacks behind, 5-1. It was the fourth appearance for Crichton, all in low-leverage situations. In three of his appearances, he was the first reliever to replace a tiring starter in the middle innings. His one appearance in the later innings came when the Diamondbacks were down by six runs.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Out of options
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton is out of minor-league options, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Crichton is coming off an effective season in which he posted a 3.56 ERA over 28 games. That the Diamondbacks would need to expose him to waivers in order to place him in the minors could be a factor in whether the team carries him forward to the Opening Day roster. The 28-year-old right-hander allowed one unearned run on two hits and one walk while striking out five over 4.1 spring innings.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

Crichton has been shuttled between Arizona and Reno since being acquired by the club in early April, but he's set for a longer stay this time around due to September's expanded rosters. The 27-year-old has a 4.05 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB over 20 innings.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Summoned to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

Crichton will provide Arizona with a fresh bullpen arm for Thursday's series opener after Wednesday's starter, Robbie Ray (back), lasted just two innings. In 16.2 big-league innings this season, Crichton owns a solid 3.24 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 15:5 K:BB.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

Crichton hopefully hasn't bothered to unpack, as Friday's move was his third time bouncing between Triple-A and the majors in a span of just six days. It's not hard to see him returning to the big leagues sometime soon, as he owns a 3.24 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 16.2 major-league innings this season.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

Crichton was recalled from Reno on July 20 and delivered 4.2 scoreless frames during his stint with Arizona. The 27-year-old allowed five runs in an appearance in mid-June, but he's otherwise provided 13 shutout innings for the Diamondbacks this season.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Recalled by Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Saturday.

Crichton owns a respectable 4.50 ERA in 10 major-league innings this season and a similar 4.34 ERA in 27.2 innings with Reno. Matt Andriese (foot) landed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Back in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton was optioned to Triple-A Reno following Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

Crichton is likely unavailable for a few days after tossing 2.1 scoreless innings of relief Wednesday, so the Diamondbacks decided to send him back to the minors to free up a roster spot for Thursday's starter, Alex Young. During his most recent stint with the big club, Crichton compiled a 6.14 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 8:3 K:BB across 7.1 innings (four appearances).

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crichton was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Wednesday.

Crichton spent time with the Diamondbacks earlier in the season, making four appearances out of the bullpen and allowing just one hit while striking out three across 2.2 scoreless innings. He'll take the roster spot of Jon Duplantier (shoulder), who was sent to the injured list in a corresponding move Wednesday.
