[sv_hlds_list_2019 list_id=”36305″ include_stats=”1″]
- We have seven new additions this week, which include Craig Kimbrel, Jesus Luzardo, Tyler Clippard, Emmanuel Clase, Francisco Liriano, Tim Hill, and Jared Huges. Kimbrel is back playing catch again as he recovers from elbow inflammation and is expected to return sometime next week. Luzardo was used in a hold situation for his MLB debut, going three innings while allowing just a run and should continue to see high-leverage work in the A’s bullpen.
- Leaving the list are Tony Watson, Matt Magill, Adam Kolarek, Ryne Stanek, Jose Alvarez, Jose Cisnero, and John Brebbia. Watson had surgery to repair a fracture in his wrist and is likely out the remainder of the season. Magill has missed time with a back issue and seemingly lost his grip on the closer role to Anthony Bass.
- We saw five pitchers this week pick up three SV+HLDs: Josh Hader, Liam Hendriks, Hector Neris, Felipe Vazquez, and Tim Hill. Hill found his way back on the list after putting together an impressive week that included three holds and six strikeouts while allowing just one walk over 3.1 innings.
