Misiewicz, who fired a scoreless two-thirds of an inning during which he allowed a hit and recorded two strikeouts in a win over the Angels on Sunday, has a 1-0 record, 2.45 ERA and 0.82 WHIP across his five July appearances.
That span only covers 3.2 innings, but it's nevertheless been an encouraging stretch for the southpaw. Misiewicz boasts an impressive 38:9 K:BB across 34.1 innings, and his formidable swing-and-miss stuff (26.4 percent strikeout rate) should continue affording him hold opportunities, if not the occasional save chance.
Misiewicz (3-3) pitched a clean inning while striking out a batter as he picked up the win over the Rangers on Friday.
Misiewicz entered to pitch the 10th in extra innings and was able to put together a 1-2-3 inning while successfully stranding the runner at second base. The 26-year-old bounced back nicely after he blew a late lead his last time out when he allowed a solo homer to Lourdes Gurriel in the eighth to tie the game up for the Blue Jays. Misiewicz now owns a 4.55 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 34:9 K:BB over 31.2 innings this year.
Misiewicz owns a 3.38 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 13.5 K/9 and one hold across the eight innings covering his eight June appearances.
The southpaw has allowed a total of three earned runs over two outings during that span, but he's otherwise proven reliable while consistently whittling down his ERA. Misiewicz also continues to prove very versatile, as he's worked a pair of two-inning appearances during that span in addition to much shorter assignments.
Misiewicz secured his 11th hold in an extra-inning win over the Athletics on Monday despite allowing two earned runs on a hit and a walk over two-thirds of an inning. He also recorded two strikeouts.
Misiewicz had quite the eventful outing, putting on the first two hitters he faced via a walk and single before recording back-to-back strikeouts. Both runners would eventually come around to score with JT Chargois on the mound, marking the fourth time in May that Misiewicz was charged with multiple earned runs in an appearance. However, he continues to be a workhorse/holds machine for manager Scott Servais, with the southpaw now having logged a career-high 24 appearances, including five in the last nine days of May alone.
Misiewicz secured his 10th hold in a win over the Rangers on Friday, striking out the side in a perfect sixth inning.
Misiewicz threw 10 of 16 pitches for strikes in what was his third straight scoreless appearance and fifth in his last six trips to the mound overall. The left-hander sports a bloated 5.00 ERA and 1.56 WHIP for the season, but those numbers are almost exclusively the byproduct of him allowing three earned runs in a trio of appearances; factoring out those hiccups, Misiewicz has yielded just one other run across his 23 outings.
Misiewicz (2-3) lost Sunday's 9-2 defeat at the hands of San Diego after allowing four hits and three runs without recording an out.
MIsiewicz relieved starter Justin Dunn in the sixth inning and proceeded to allow three singles and a double before exiting with the bases loaded. After not allowing a run to cross the plate in April, Misiewicz has now allowed 10 runs in six May innings and has seen his ERA balloon to 5.87.

Misiewicz was placed on the injured list Friday due to a potential positive COVID-19 test by a member of the Mariners' pitching staff.
Robert Dugger, Drew Steckenrider and Will Vest were all placed on the injured list in the same flurry of moves, as it sounds like one of those players tested positive and the others are being held out due to contact tracing. Keynan Middleton (biceps) was activated from the IL in a corresponding move.
Misiewicz recorded his eighth hold in a win over Cleveland on Sunday, allowing two hits and a walk over one inning.
Misiewicz continues to try to rediscover the stride he'd hit in April, when he wasn't scored upon across 9.1 innings over 11 appearances and recorded two wins and four holds. May hasn't anywhere near as kind -- he's taken two losses, blown two save chances and given up seven earned runs across three of his appearances -- but the southpaw has at least doubled up his holds tally and has now produced scoreless efforts in two of his last three trips to the mound.
Misiewicz (2-1) took the loss as Seattle fell 5-3 to Baltimore on Monday, facing four batters and allowing a walk, home run and double before inducing a flyout and being removed.
This was Misiewicz's first poor outing of the season, as he had yet to allow a run in 9.1 innings prior to the blowup. His ERA jumped all the way to 2.70 but he should remain one of Seattle's more trusted relievers.
Misiewicz, who allowed a hit and no walks over a scoreless eighth inning in a loss to the Astros on Tuesday, has yet to give up a run across the 7.1 innings covering his first nine appearances.
The southpaw has also recorded a pair of wins and holds apiece, making him a surprising fantasy asset in formats that factor in the latter category. Misiewicz is also displaying career-best control, as evidenced by his 1.2 BB/9.
Misiewicz was credited with his first hold in a win over the Astros on Sunday, hitting a batter and recording a strikeout to close out the seventh inning.

Misiewicz (2-0) earned the win in Friday's 6-5 victory over the Astros, firing a perfect ninth inning while striking out two.
Misiewicz was busy in his return from the COVID-19 injured list as he was tasked with maintaining a 5-5 tie in the ninth inning and proceeded to dispatch the side with ease on 13 pitches (nine strikes). It wouldn't take long for the Mariners to score in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving Misiewicz his second win of the season. The 26-year-old has yet to surrender a run or walk a batter this season across five outings.
Misiewicz was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.
The 26-year-old landed on the COVID-19 list at the start of the week but cleared the league's protocols within a few days as he apparently never tested positive for the virus. Misiewicz has yet to give up a run through 3.2 innings for the Mariners this season.
Misiewicz was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Monday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
The Mariners didn't initially provide a reason for Misiewicz's placement on the injured list, but the team has now specified that his absence is COVID-related. The designation doesn't necessarily mean that the southpaw has tested positive for the virus himself. Misiewicz will be able to return before the minimum 10 days as long as he isn't dealing with a positive test result of his own. Erik Swanson was recalled from Seattle's taxi squad to fill in as a reliever in Misiewicz's absence.
The Mariners placed Misiewicz on the 10-day injured list Monday due to an unspecified issue.
Seattle hasn't revealed whether Misiewicz's placement on the IL was the result of an injury or a COVID-19-related concern. If it's the latter, Misiewicz could be able to return before the minimum 10 days, provided he hasn't actually tested positive for the virus himself. Seattle recalled Erik Swanson from its taxi squad to provide some extra depth in the bullpen while Misiewicz is on the shelf.
Misiewicz (1-0) fired a perfect 10th inning in Thursday's season-opening win over the Giants.
The young southpaw pitched to a 1.08 ERA, 0.48 WHIP and .115 BAA across 8.1 Cactus League frames, and he picked up right where he left off Thursday to help seal Seattle's wild comeback victory. Misiewicz proved reliable last season in middle relief with eight holds, and although he logged a high-leverage opportunity Thursday, that was largely the result of closer Rafael Montero already having pitched the ninth and blown a save opportunity.
Misiewicz, who compiled eight holds as a rookie in 2020, has a 3.00 ERA and 4:0 K:BB across three innings over his first three Cactus League appearances.
The young right-hander has given up one earned run, but otherwise, he's been close to flawless while exhibiting some of the same impressive control that led to a 25:6 K:BB over his first 20 big-league innings a season ago. Misiewicz appears on his way to garnering a roster spot as a middle reliever again, with Daniel Kramer of MLB.com including him in his latest Opening Day roster projection.
Misiewicz was credited with his eighth hold in a win over the Astros on Wednesday, firing a scoreless two-thirds of an inning during which he recorded a strikeout.
Misiewicz has encouragingly evened out his performances down the season's stretch run, as he's now posted scoreless appearances in four of the last five trips to the mound. The southpaw has been a versatile option for manager Scott Servais, as he's been effective in both sub-one-inning outings and longer assignments that have seen him work as much as a pair of frames. Following Wednesday's effort, Misiewicz sports a 4.26 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and impressive 24:5 K:BB across 19 innings.
Misiewicz (0-2) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Giants. He allowed one run on one hit while fanning two in one inning.
Misiewicz pitched the seventh inning and allowed the game-winning run on a solo shot from Darin Ruf. Misiewicz has been a reliable late-inning option for Seattle with six holds, but he has allowed runs in three of his last seven appearances -- he owns a 3.86 ERA while fanning 10.3 K/9 in that seven-game span.
