Diamondbacks' Yoshihisa Hirano: Records 27th hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hirano was credited with his 27th hold of the season in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Rangers after inducing a double play to end the eighth inning.

After lefty specialist Andrew Chafin exited with one out and a runner on first base, Hirano stepped in and got Elvis Andrus to ground a dribbler back to the mound, igniting a 1-4-3 double play. The 34-year-old rookie has remained effective through 10 appearances in the second half, ceding only two runs over 10.2 innings and scattering five hits and two walks.

Diamondbacks' Yoshihisa Hirano: Cruises to 24th hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hirano retired all four of the batters he faced en route to earning his 24th hold of the season Sunday in the Diamondbacks' 5-4 win over the Padres.

Hirano was summoned in relief of Clay Buchholz, who recorded the first two outs of the sixth inning and exited with runners on first and second base and the Diamondbacks clinging to a 5-3 lead. The rookie extinguished the San Diego threat by inducing an inning-ending grounder from Jose Pirela, then returned for the bottom of the seventh and coaxed a pair of groundballs and punched out another hitter to put away the side. It was Hirano's 32nd scoreless appearance in his last 35 outings, with the right-hander tallying a 1.69 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over that stretch.

Diamondbacks' Yoshihisa Hirano: Suffers loss in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hirano was the pitcher of record in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Rockies. He worked 1.2 innings and gave up a run on two hits and a walk and struck out two.

After stringing together 26 consecutive scoreless appearances from May 6 to July 3, Hirano has ran into some turbulence of late. Over his last six outings, he's given up nine runs (six earned) on 10 hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. The recent struggles won't result in the Diamondbacks moving him out of a setup role, but fantasy owners who have been relying on Hirano for ratio help may want to see him iron things out over his next few appearances before inserting back into lineups.

Diamondbacks' Yoshihisa Hirano: Yields four runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hirano retired just one batter and surrendered four runs on four hits in Wednesday's 19-2 loss to the Rockies.

Hirano turned in scoreless appearances at Colorado on June 8 and 10 in his first career outings at the park, but the Coors Effect reared its head Wednesday. Typically used in the seventh or eighth inning, Hirano was summoned in the bottom of the fourth after starter Shelby Miller and reliever Jorge De La Rosa ceded 12 runs over the first three frames. Hirano didn't fare any better, generating a flyball out before yielding four consecutive hits and receiving the hook. The rookie's season ERA jumped nearly a full run after the disastrous outing, moving from 1.36 to 2.25.

Diamondbacks' Yoshihisa Hirano: Gets 20th hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hirano yielded a single and hit a batter with a pitch but tossed a scoreless seventh inning to notch his 20th hold of the season Friday in the Diamondbacks' 3-1 win over the Padres.

Hirano needed 21 pitches to get through the seventh but was ultimately successful in preserving the Diamondbacks' one-run lead. With runners on first and second with one out, Hirano induced a Wil Myers dribbler back to the mound and started a 1-4-3 double play to end the threat. It was a nice bounce-back effort from the rookie after he was lit up in his last appearance Wednesday against the Cardinals for four runs (one earned) while retiring just two batters. The blowup ended Hirano's streak of 26 consecutive scoreless outings.
