Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Joins camp Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginkel arrived at the Diamondbacks' summer camp workouts on Monday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Ginkel and David Peralta both made their first appearance at summer camp in time for Arizona's intrasquad game Monday. The 26-year-old pitcher is expected to serve as one of the primary setup men for closer Archie Bradley this season. During his rookie campaign in 2019, Ginkel recorded an impressive 1.48 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and a 28:9 K:BB across 24.1 innings.

Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Not seen at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginkel has not been spotted during the first two days of summer camp, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Add Ginkel to the list of players that have yet to report to summer camp. He's expected to serve as one of the primary setup men for closer Archie Bradley. David Peralta and Kole Calhoun were among the missing Friday, but apparently GInkel's absence went undetected until Saturday. Regarding the missing players, Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said the same thing Saturday that he said Friday: Guys are completing their intake testing. "I think Major League Baseball has set forth a certain protocol that you've got to arrive, you've got to quarantine, you've got to test, you've got to pass the test. I think it's a small window for very rigorous protocols," said the manager. At this time, teams are not allowed to state whether players have contracted COVID-19 because it is considered a "non-employment-related" issue, though a player may authorize a team to do so.

Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Throws one inning Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginkel (arm) allowed one hit in a shutout inning of a controlled game on the back fields Tuesday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

Ginkel, who had been experiencing arm fatigue, threw for the first time in a week. After a successful introduction to MLB in 2019, a season in which he had a 1.48 ERA and two saves over 25 appearances, Ginkel is expected to serve in a setup role in 2020.

Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Scheduled for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginkel (arm) said he is scheduled to pitch Tuesday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Ginkel has been shut down for a number of days with arm fatigue, something he first experienced following last Tuesday's outing against the Royals. "It was kind of barking a couple of days ago," Ginkel said. "I just needed to get it tended to a little bit. So I've been in the training room the past couple of days just trying to get it right, get it back to 100 percent. It's not a big concern."

Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Experiencing arm fatigue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks will hold back on using Ginkel for a stretch after the right-hander reported arm fatigue, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Manager Torey Lovullo said Saturday that Ginkel's next appearance has been pushed to next week. "We're just backing off him a little bit with a little bit of arm fatigue," Lovullo said. "It's kind of the normal time for things like that to pop up from time to time. He spoke up, which we want our guys to do. Nothing has been diagnosed. It's just a matter of us pulling back a little bit at this time when we can." Ginkel is seen as a key component of the bullpen and as a potential closer candidate if Archie Bradley falters.

Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Notches second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginkel allowed only one hit in one inning pitched to earn his second save of the year in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Padres.

Ginkel was called upon since regular closer Archie Bradley had appeared three times over the last four games. Ginkel didn't disappoint, retiring the first two batters he faced before a Francisco Mejia double. He then got Wil Myers to fly out to end the threat. Ginkel has two saves and nine holds with a 1.48 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 25 appearances this year.

Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Records first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginkel closed out Monday's 7-5 win over the Marlins to pick up his first save of the season. He struck out one and retired the side in order.

The Diamondbacks' closer, Archie Bradley, was unavailable Monday due to back spasms, per Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, so manager Torey Lovullo turned to Ginkel, who has pitched well in a setup role the last couple of weeks. Ginkel has allowed just one run over his last 10 appearances, spanning 10 innings. Lovullo believes Bradley will be ready to go Tuesday.

Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Sets up for Bradley
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginkel retired the side in order, striking out one to earn a hold in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Reds.

Ginkel needed just seven pitches to dispatch the Reds in the eighth inning to earn his seventh hold in the last 12 outings. During that stretch, the rookie right-hander has allowed two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out 10 over 11.2 innings. Ginkel has been given a steady stream of high-leverage work recently, and he was used Saturday instead of Yoan Lopez, who has been the primary setup man and was available.

Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Was unavailable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginkel was not used during Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Reds because he was unavailable due to recent usage, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Ginkel had not pitched too much recently -- just twice in the previous five days -- but manager Torey Lovullo was being extra cautious with the rookie. "I want people to understand, the fans to understand," Lovullo said, "when a player like that, a youthful player, comes up and plays September baseball, it's the first extra month of baseball they've ever experienced." Ginkel has also experienced arm issues during his career, including earlier this season when he dealt with elbow inflammation that sidelined him for the month June. The right-hander has become an effective weapon out of the bullpen, allowing one run on three hits and four walks while striking out nine over the last 10.1 innings (0.87 ERA) while recording six holds.

Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Officially promoted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginkel had his contract selected from Triple-A Reno on Monday.

As expected, Ginkel will join the Diamondbacks ahead of Monday's series opener against the Phillies, replacing Zack Godley -- who was designated for assignment -- on the roster and in the bullpen. The 25-year-old has been working as the closer at Reno, converting 11 of his 12 save chances while posting a shiny 1.78 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 63:14 K:BB in 35.1 innings. If Ginkel is able to carry his success to the majors, he could quickly settle into a setup role in front of Archie Bradley, who appears to be Arizona's top options for saves after Greg Holland was removed as closer.

Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: First callup on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginkel will be called up from Triple-A Reno ahead of Monday's game against the Phillies, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

The Diamondbacks already cleared a spot for Ginkel on the 40-man and active rosters by designating reliever Zack Godley for assignment following Sunday's 7-5 win over the Nationals. Ginkel had been working as the closer at Reno, posting a 1.78 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 63:14 K:BB in 35.1 innings while converting 11 of 12 save chances and holding opponents to a .157 batting average. The right-hander could claim a setup gig in front of Archie Bradley, who appears to have emerged as the Diamondbacks' leading candidate to close after Greg Holland was recently pulled from the role.
