Bullpen Report: May 30, 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

Dany Jiménez, OAK: Three of the last four days and four of the last six; 16 pitches on Sunday. | RosterResource

Jiménez’s ability on Monday could really go either way. If he’s held out, A.J. Puk, Zach Jackson and

David Robertson, CHC: 16 pitches on Sunday; 19 pitches on Saturday. | RosterResource

Robertson hasn’t gone three straight days yet this season, so he might not be available for either end of a doubleheader on Monday, let alone both. Mychal Givens, Rowan Rick, Scott Effross and Daniel Norris are all possibilities.

Injury News


Outlier Saves

David Phelps, TOR | RosterResource

Jordan Romano worked Thursday, Friday and Saturday—and couldn’t even make it out of Saturday’s game with the save, as Ross Stripling had to bail him out—so there’s no way he was going to pitch on Sunday after 60 pitches in three days. The Blue Jays stuck with usual setup men Adam Cimber in their usual roles with the matchups shaking out that way, so the veteran Phelps was brought on to hold the one-run lead in a wild game. He gave up a two-out single before inducing a fly out for his first save of the season.

Phelps has come all the way back from lat surgery (one that he thought might end his career) to be a key contributor to Toronto’s bullpen. He has a 2.41 ERA in 18.2 innings with 17 strikeouts.

Committee Clarity


Losing A Grip

Art Warren, CIN | RosterResource

Sunday morning’s game against the Giants was a blowup of rather epic proportions for Warren, who faced four batters, all of whom ended up scoring. Warren entered this season with a brilliant 1.03 ERA through his first 32 career appearances spanning 26.1 innings, but his ERA now sits at an ugly 7.27 this season. He’s earned three saves so far this year, but may not get many chances going forward, with Alexis Diaz, Tony Santillan and Jeff Hoffman all at least showing flashes of dominance, and Hunter Strickland improving after a tough start to his own season.
