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.
