Angels' Ty Buttrey: Tosses bullpen session Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey threw a 20-pitch bullpen in Florida on Tuesday and has been training every day during the week, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The session was certainly not traditional as Buttrey has maintained social distancing during MLB's hiatus, but it is nonetheless a positive sign that the reliever has moved past the intercostal strain that cost him much of spring training. Buttrey is likely to fill a high-leverage role in the Angels' bullpen when the 2020 season gets underway.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Solid in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (back) said he felt good after delivering a scoreless inning during his Cactus League debut Tuesday against the Mariners, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The 26-year-old was held out with an intercostal strain early in spring training, but he looked fine Tuesday and hit 98 mph with his fastball. Buttrey had a 3.98 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 26 holds last season, and he's set to begin 2020 in a setup role to closer Hansel Robles.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Spring debut on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (back) is expected to make his spring debut Tuesday against the Mariners, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Buttrey has been slowed by an intercostal strain he suffered early in camp. With two weeks left of spring training games, he should still have time to be ready by Opening Day, provided he feels good in his return to game action.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Hits 96 mph in simulated game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (back) hurled a simulated game Sunday and hit 96 mph on the radar gun, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Though Buttrey's velocity was a tick under the 97.1 mph he averaged on his heater last season, his ability to throw hard following the intercostal strain he suffered in mid-February suggests that his recovery has gone well. The right-hander is set to throw in a Cactus League game Wednesday.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Set to debut Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (back) will throw a simulated game Saturday and is set to make his Cactus League debut Wednesday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Buttrey threw a bullpen session at full intensity three days ago and experienced no negative effects from the intercostal strain he suffered at the start of spring training. If Saturday's bullpen yields similar results, he'll be a full-go for his debut Wednesday. Buttrey figures to fill a high-leverage role in the Angels' bullpen this season.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Completes another bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (back) indicated that Wednesday's bullpen session went "phenomenally," Fabian Ardaya of The Athleticic reports.

Buttrey suffered an intercostal strain in mid-February but appears to be back on track after a series of successful bullpens. He is likely to make his spring debut soon and should be good to go for Opening Day.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Feels good after bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (back) said he felt "pretty awesome" following his bullpen session Thursday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Buttrey threw 20 pitches, all of which were fastballs, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. He's scheduled to ramp things up in subsequent bullpen sessions over the next week before potentially being cleared to make his Cactus League debut. Once Buttrey is ready for game action, the plan is for him to pitch in six or seven spring games before the start of the season.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Could return to action next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (back) will throw a bullpen session Thursday and could get into a game by the end of next week, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Buttrey has been working his way back from an intercostal strain, but he appears ready to throw, as he's currently scheduled for three bullpen sessions over the next seven days. Pending any setbacks, the reliever could make his Cactus League debut as early as next Friday.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Expects to throw bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (back) expects to throw a bullpen session Wednesday or Thursday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

After suffering an intercostal strain earlier in February, Buttrey was able to play catch Thursday, and he'll likely progress to throwing a bullpen session soon. Given his progress, he's expected to be ready for Opening Day, barring any setbacks.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Plays catch Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (back) played catch Thursday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Buttrey, who suffered an intercostal strain earlier in the month, said he threw at around 60-to-70 percent and felt good afterward. Barring setbacks, he's expected to be ready to go by Opening Day.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Slowed by injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey suffered an intercostal strain and will be sidelined for a week or two, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Manager Joe Maddon revealed Buttrey's injury Saturday, but the right-hander is expected to be ready for Opening Day if his rehab goes smoothly. Buttrey saw his largest workload in the majors last season as he recorded a 3.98 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 72.1 innings, and he figures to play a prominent role in the Angels' bullpen in 2020 once he's healthy.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Surrenders grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey was charged with three runs on two hits in two-thirds of an inning during Friday's loss to the White Sox.

The right-hander entered the game with one on and no outs in the eight inning and then loaded the bases before White Sox catcher James McCann jacked a grand slam to make it a 7-2 game. Buttrey has allowed eight runs over his last seven appearances (7.1 innings), inflating his ERA from 3.12 to 3.83 in that span. The setup man has earned 20 holds and two saves while amassing a 6-5 record across 55 appearances.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Pinned with loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (6-5) recorded only one out and allowed two runs on two hits, taking the loss in an 8-7 decision against the Orioles on Saturday.

Buttrey allowed a single to Jonathan Villar and hit Stevie Wilkerson with a pitch to start his appearance. Both runners scored on a Hanser Alberto single that ultimately put the Orioles ahead for good when Jose Rodriguez was called on to relieve Buttrey. The setup man has been shaky lately, allowing five runs over his last five innings. For the year, Buttrey has a 3.12 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 57:12 K:BB in 49 innings. The right-hander has also earned 18 holds.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Collects sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (6-4) earned the win Saturday, striking out the side in the eighth inning of a 6-2 win over the Mariners.

Buttrey did his part to keep the game tied, and he became the pitcher of record as the Angels exploded for four runs in the ninth inning. Buttrey has a 2.54 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 46 innings this season, accumulating 56 strikeouts, two saves and 17 holds as the Angels' usual eighth-inning reliever.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Struggles in relief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey surrendered two runs on four hits while striking out one over his lone inning of relief Sunday in the Angels' 11-10 loss to the Astros.

Buttrey retired the side in the bottom of the seventh when the game was tied 8-8 and would have been in line for the win after the Angels plated two runs in the top of the eighth. However, he proceeded to allow four consecutive singles in the bottom of the eighth to squander the lead before closer Hansel Robles came on to clean up the mess. In spite of the poor outing, Buttrey heads into the All-Star break with a tidy 2.57 ERA and 50:12 K:BB in 42 innings, locking him in as Robles' top setup man.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Charged with blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey took a blown save in Wednesday's win over the Athletics after surrendering two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one over 1.2 innings.

Buttrey entered the game in the seventh inning with the Angels leading 8-7. Despite a wild pitch and a single, Buttrey got though the frame unscathed. Trouble soon came in the eighth as the 26-year-old gave up two runs and was replaced by Hansel Robles for the final out. The blown save was Buttrey's second of the season. Through 31 innings, he owns a 1.74 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with two saves.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Grabs win Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (3-2) pitched 1.1 innings, allowing two walks and striking out three to earn the win in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Athletics.

Buttrey became the pitcher of record when Shohei Ohtani hit a two-run single in the top of the ninth inning. Buttrey has a sparkling 1.30 ERA and 1.08 WHIP through 25 appearances this season, accumulating two saves, 35 strikeouts and 10 holds over his 27.2 innings.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Nails down second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey allowed a hit and a walk over 1.2 scoreless innings Saturday while striking out three to record his second save of the season in a 6-3 win over the Royals.

Hansel Robles has seen the bulk of the work as the Angels' closer over the last few weeks, but Buttrey has been just as effective in high-leverage spots, reeling off eight straight scoreless appearances with a 13:1 K:BB over 10.2 innings during that stretch. So far, however, both of Buttrey's saves have come when Robles pitched the day before, making the pecking order in the team's bullpen clear.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Records first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey allowed two hits while striking out two through two innings to record his first save in a 6-3 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old has been used as a high-leverage option recently and was effective in two innings to nail down his first save of the season. Even though he is a candidate for saves, the Angels are unlikely to use a traditional closer's role. Hansel Robles recorded the save Tuesday and may not have been available. Buttrey has a 1.13 ERA and a 21:3 K:BB through 16 innings.

Angels' Ty Buttrey: Charged with blown save, loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buttrey (1-1) was charged with the blown save and the loss Wednesday against the Yankees. He allowed one earned run on two hits and zero walks while striking out three over 2.2 innings.

Buttrey was called upon to put out a fire in the seventh inning, and he did limit the damage to a large extent, though he allowed a couple inherited runners to score on a sacrifice fly and a fielder's choice and thus was stuck with the blown save. He stayed in the game and tried to keep it tied all the way through nine, but this sequence unfolded with two outs in the ninth inning: single, stolen base, bloop RBI single. The Angels' bats couldn't rally against Aroldis Chapman in the bottom of the frame and so Buttrey took the loss as well. Cody Allen was removed from the closer role and Buttrey is a top candidate for save chances along with Hansel Robles. We like Buttrey more, but it's clear that manager Brad Ausmus will use Buttrey in what he feels is the biggest spot in the late innings -- not necessarily the ninth.
