Indians' Adam Cimber: Recovered from side injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber dealt with a side injury during spring training, Mandy Bell of reports.

He missed time early in camp due to tightness in his side, but returned to the mound before the hiatus. Cimber gave up three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four in four innings during Cactus League play. He was set to break camp as a middle reliever.

Indians' Adam Cimber: Picks up first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber struck out the only batter he faced to record his first career save in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Angels.

With Brad Hand (arm) unavailable, manager Terry Francona elected to play matchups in the ninth inning, using Nick Wittgren, Oliver Perez and Cimber for one out apiece. Wittgren is the most likely candidate to see regular save chances if Hand is sidelined for a while, but Cimber could become part of a committee approach to filling the gap.

Indians' Adam Cimber: Notches eighth hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber retired both of the batters he faced in the seventh inning to secure his eighth hold of the season Tuesday in the Indians' 9-5 win over the Royals.

Cimber has kept the opposition off the board in his last six appearances and now owns a 3.30 ERA for the season. While he's established himself as one of the more-trusted setup arms for closer Brad Hand, Cimber's weak 16.0 K% makes him rather unexciting for fantasy purposes.

Indians' Adam Cimber: Grabs win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber (1-0) struck out two in a perfect inning of relief Friday to record the win in a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

The other pitcher who headed to Cleveland last year in the same deal that netted closer Brad Hand, Cimber is of to a solid start to 2019, picking up a win and a hold while posting a 3:0 K:BB in 2.2 innings across four appearances without giving up a run.The second-year sidearmer will continue to be deployed in high-leverage spots and should easily be able to top last year's 12 holds.

Indians' Adam Cimber: Heads to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber and Brad Hand were shipped to Cleveland in exchange for Francisco Mejia on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Though Hand is the headliner for the Indians in this deal, Cimber will be a fine addition to a bullpen that required improvement. Look for Cimber to be deployed in high-leverage spots as someone who can provide a different look, though the presence of Hand, Andrew Miller (knee) and Cody Allen will guarantee that he doesn't receive any opportunities as the team's closer. Over 42 appearances for San Diego, Cimber posted a 3.17 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with a 51:10 K:BB across 48.1 innings.

Padres' Adam Cimber: Picks up win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber picked up the win after tossing three shutout innings while surrendering just one hit and striking out four in a 4-2 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Cimber teamed up with starter Matt Strahm to combine for six shutout innings with seven strikeouts to no walks in a bullpen game. The former has been excellent in his rookie campaign with the Padres, posting a 2.60 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 7.0 K/BB over 34.2 innings. Cimber has managed to post those impressive ratios despite averaging 86.2 mph on his fastball. Brad Hand, Kirby Yates and Craig Stammen have a firm grip on the late-inning roles in the bullpen, so Cimber's value is capped in standard fantasy formats.

Padres' Adam Cimber: Fires scoreless inning Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber gave up a hit and struck out a batter over a scoreless inning in a loss to the Pirates on Thursday.

Cimber allowed a run in each of his first three appearances this month, but he followed that up with three scoreless outings. The 27-year-old rookie has been a pleasant surprise for the Friars, posting a 2.92 ERA and a strong 5.2 K/BB over 24.2 innings. He is still behind Brad Hand, Kirby Yates and Craig Stammen in the bullpen, so he won't see many hold or save opportunities for a struggling San Diego club.

Padres' Adam Cimber: Excels in long relief Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber tossed three no-hit innings in relief during the Padres' 10-3 loss to the Dodgers on Monday. He struck out three and walked one in the 37-pitch outing.

The 27-year-old Cimber cracked the Padres' Opening Day roster to little fanfare in March, but he's quickly emerged as one of the more dominant members of the San Diego bullpen. Though Cimber's 1.38 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 5.3 K/BB on the season would be more than serviceable if he were used as strictly as a one-inning setup man, his fantasy utility is enhanced by the Padres' willingness to deploy him as a multi-inning weapon. Cimber has retired six or more hitters in four of his last five appearances, notching at least three strikeouts in all of those extended outings.

Padres' Adam Cimber: Perfect in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber fired two spotless innings while striking out three in a loss to the Astros on Sunday.

The Friars' long man was excellent in this one, doubling his strikeout total to six through 4.2 innings. Cimber posted a modest 7.3 K/9 across two levels last year, so his early 11.6 K/9 in the majors doesn't seem sustainable. The 27-year-old primarily relies on pinpoint control with his slow sinker (85.8 mph), so he is unlikely to provide ratio help in his current role.

Padres' Adam Cimber: Will make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber has won a spot on the Padres' Opening Day roster, AJ Cassavell of reports.

The 27-year-old has yet to appear in the majors, though he had a solid season for Triple-A El Paso last year. In 64.2 innings, the sidearmer posted a 2.92 ERA, walked just 3.2 percent of the batters he faced and generated a 54.3 percent groundball rate. He continued to impress this spring, striking out nine and allowing four hits, one walk and no runs in nine innings of work.

Padres' Adam Cimber: Impressing in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cimber has impressed manager Andy Green this spring, tossing eight scoreless innings in the Cactus League while striking out eight, walking one and holding opposing hitters to a .148 batting average.

The 27-year-old had a solid showing at Triple-A El Paso last season, posting a 2.92 ERA in 64.2 innings and walking just 3.2 percent of the batters he faced. He's "thrust himself into the conversation," according to Green. It would be something of a surprise if a 27-year-old with no major-league experience and no spot on the 40-man roster makes the team, but Cimber appears to have an outside chance to do that based on how he's performed this spring.
