Bullpen Report: June 14, 2022

The 2022 version of Bullpen Report includes five different sections, as well as the closer chart, which can be found at the bottom of the page.

We will always include a link to the full Closer Depth Chart at the bottom of the Bullpen Report each day. It’s also accessible from the RosterResource drop-down menu and from any RosterResource page. Please let us know what you think.

  1. Notable Workloads: Primary closers or valuable members of a closer committee who have been deemed unavailable or likely unavailable for the current day due to recent workload.
  2. Injury News
  3. Outlier Saves: Explanation for a non-closer earning a save during the previous day.
  4. Committee Clarity: Notes on a closer committee that clarify a pitcher’s standing in the group.
  5. Losing A Grip: Struggling closers who could be on the hot seat.

The “RosterResource” link will take you to the corresponding team’s RosterResource depth chart, which will give you a better picture of the full bullpen and results of the previous six days (pitch count, save, hold, win, loss, blown save).

Notable Workloads

Tanner Rainey, WSH: 24 pitches on Monday. | Roster Resource

Rainey threw 19 pitches on Saturday, was off on Sunday, and back at it again on Monday. It’s likely that he’ll get the day off on Tuesday and that either Kyle Finnegan or Carl Edwards Jr. could fill in against the Braves.

Injury News



Outlier Saves

Matt Moore, TEX | Roster Resource

The Rangers took the lead in the bottom of the eighth inning and handed the game to Moore up by two. He faced only three batters and needed only six pitches to record his first save of his career. With Joe Barlow throwing over 20 pitches on both Saturday and Sunday, Matt Bush was the expected fill-in for the save opportunity. Brock Burke was given the seventh and eighth and recorded the win. Although the righty Matt Bush was warming in the pen, it was the lefty Matt Moore who manager Chris Woodward chose to take on three right-handed hitters at the bottom of the order.

Moore has been solid in his last five outings giving up no runs and only one hit in six innings. Prior to that stretch, he had one stinker on May 30th where he did not record an out and gave up three earned runs. Bush has written a similar story as he’s given up only three runs in his last ten appearances and all three came from one bad outing. In that time period (post 5/18/22) he’s given up seven hits in 8.1 innings and four of those hits came in that one rough appearance on June 5th.

You will notice that Joe Barlow has been highlighted in “Not Very Stable” yellow in the table below. While both Moore and Bush have been stringing together solid performances, Barlow has struggled. In his last five appearances, he’s given up five earned runs, five hits, and one home run. While he has still recorded two saves and a win in that five-game span, it’s never good to be rocky when the arms waiting in the pen have been smooth. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next few days and if Barlow can get back on track. If he continues to struggle, we could see Bush, Burke, or Moore get a few more opportunities.
