  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Collapses in ninth

    Mantiply suffered a blown save after he pitched two-thirds of an inning, allowing three runs (one earned) on two hits and a walk in Monday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Brewers.

    Mantiply was called upon to protect a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the ninth inning, but he quickly ran into trouble. The left-hander surrendered a solo home run to Hunter Renfroe to open the frame before Christian Yelich and Kolten Wong came around to score on an error with two outs in the inning. The reliever was removed from the contest with two outs in the ninth and the score knotted up at 4-4, resulting in his sixth blown save of the campaign. Mantiply has now gone 2-for-8 on save opportunities this year while posting a 2.85 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 61 strikeouts over 60 innings in 69 appearances in 2022.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Blows save

    Mantiply allowed three hits and three inherited runners to score while striking out two over one inning, picking up a blown save in a 6-5 loss to the Dodgers in first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

    Arizona's bullpen blew up in the eighth inning with Caleb Smith, Kevin Ginkel and Mantiply letting a 5-1 lead slip away. Mantiply entered with none out and the bases loaded -- an unpleasant task against MLB's best team. The left-hander also pitched in the second game of the doubleheader, notching his 21st hold in one-third of an inning, so it would appear manager Torey Lovullo still has confidence in Mantiply despite a shaky stretch during which he's pitched to an 8.00 ERA over 13 outings.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Allows another run

    Mantiply allowed one run on two hits while striking out one over one inning in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Padres.

    At a time when manager Torey Lovullo indicated the team's closer situation is "fluid," per Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, Mantiply is experiencing his worst stretch of the season. The left-hander has allowed runs in five of his last eight outings, posting a 12.71 ERA while allowing two home runs over 5.2 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Takes loss in extra inning

    Mantiply (2-5) allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and struck out one over two-thirds of an inning to pick up the loss to Milwaukee on Saturday.

    Arizona's bullpen collectively blew this game, but it was Mantiply that served up a 428-foot, two-run home run to Tyrone Taylor in the 10th inning. The left-hander was a well-deserving All Star for a strong first half, but he's fallen on rough times the last two weeks, during which he's allowed eight runs (seven earned) and two homers over 4.2 innings. "At this point, I kind of recently feel like a liability a little bit," Mantiply told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. "It's tough to swallow." Arizona manager Torey Lovullo mentioned Mantiply as a reliever that could get save opportunities, but it sounds like his confidence has been shaken.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Can't keep game close

    Mantiply did not retire a batter and gave up three runs on three hits in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Kansas City.

    Mantiply entered a tied game with a runner on first and let the game get away, allowing two singles and a three-run home run. He's pitched effectively when starting a clean inning, but he has allowed 10 of 24 inherited runners to score (42 percent) this year. One might think the left-hander would be better at preventing inherited runners from scoring, given Mantiply sports a 2.66 ERA, rarely issues walks (0.7 BB/9), keeps the ball in the park (0.7 HR/9) and does a good job stranding his own runners (76.6%).

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Holds lead once again

    Mantiply allowed one hit while striking out three over one inning to earn a hold in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Giants.

    Mantiply locked down the eighth inning, a feat he's accomplishing with regularity, before Ian Kennedy blew the save in the ninth. The left-hander has made 11 consecutive scoreless appearances, picking up five holds while striking out 11 and walking two over 9.1 innings. Mantiply has yet to be handed a save opportunity since Mark Melancon was removed from the role, but manager Torey Lovullo indicated earlier that he has no problem rolling with Mantiply if left-handers are due up.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Extinguishes fire

    Mantiply struck out one over a scoreless 1.1 innings in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Rockies.

    Mantiply did not get a win, hold or save, but his pitching contribution was the most important. With Arizona leading 2-0 entering the sixth inning, reliever Kevin Ginkel failed to retire any of the six batters faced, so it was up to Mantiply to put out the fire. The high-leverage left-hander is in the mix for saves now that Mark Melancon is no longer the full-time closer, but he may be more valuable as a fireman. Mantiply has made six consecutive scoreless appearances and sports a 1.42 ERA over 6.1 innings since the break. He doesn't blow away hitters with a high-velo fastball (90.4 mph), but Mantiply gets outs, keeps the ball in the park (0.6 HR/9) and hasn't walked many (four over 43 IP).

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Could get saves

    Mantiply will be part of a ninth-inning committee going forward in Arizona, Steve Gilbert of reports.

    The 31-year-old southpaw has a 4.26 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 12 strikeouts, zero wins and zero saves over his last 12.2 innings. However, Ian Kennedy seems like the more likely saves leader for the Diamondbacks after Mark Melancon was removed from the role.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Unable to finish inning

    Mantiply allowed one run on two hits and one walk over a third of an inning in Monday's 4-3 win over the Giants.

    Mantiply, Arizona's lone representative at the All-Star Game, appears to be the high-leverage reliever of choice for manager Torey Lovullo after Ian Kennedy (calf) landed on the injured list. Since Kennedy's addition to the IL, Mantiply has been called upon to work the eighth inning of a close game on three occasions. It hasn't gone well for the left-hander, who picked up a hold Monday but has allowed four runs on five hits and a walk over 2.2 innings. He was charged with a loss, letting an inherited runner score a game-winning run while being unable to finish the inning Monday. The walk was just the second Mantiply has allowed and first since Opening Day.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Gets first crack at setup

    Mantiply (1-2) allowed three runs on two hits and a hit batsman over one inning, taking the loss to San Francisco on Wednesday.

    Mantiply came on to start the eighth inning with the Diamondbacks holding a 4-2 lead but was unable to preserve it for closer Mark Melancon. A narrow eighth-inning lead normally falls under the purview of Ian Kennedy, but a calf injury landed him on the 15-day injured list. Mantiply has been one of the better arms out of the Arizona bullpen, posting a 1.13 ERA before Wednesday's outing bumped it to 1.91 ERA (2.20 FIP) over 33 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Locks down hold

    Mantiply pitched a scoreless inning of relief to earn his fourth hold in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Cubs.

    Mantiply recorded the final two outs of the seventh inning then retired the first batter in the eighth before letting Ian Kennedy shepherd the lead to closer Mark Melancon. Two of the three batted balls Mantiply allowed had exit velocities over 100 mph, but those were easily handled infield grounders. The left-hander has allowed only one run over 15.2 innings, fanning 13 and walking one.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Grabs another save

    Mantiply didn't allow a baserunner and earned the save with a scoreless ninth inning during Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Marlins. He did not record a strikeout.

    The 31-year-old picked up his second save of the season Tuesday since closer Mark Melancon (undisclosed) is on the COVID-19 injured list. Ian Kennedy has recorded two saves with Melancon sidelined, but Mantiply is also with the mix as Arizona's fill-in closer. Mantiply is unscored upon through 10 innings this season and has a 0.70 WHIP and 4:1 K:BB.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Picks up first career save

    Mantiply struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Saturday to record his first save of his career in a 5-2 win over the Mets.

    With Mark Melancon having pitched Thursday and Friday, the Diamondbacks had to look elsewhere to protect a late lead. Ian Kennedy came out for the eighth inning against the heart of New York's order, and with three lefties due up in the ninth for the Mets, Mantiply got the nod, although he wound up facing two right-handed pinch hitters in Mark Canha and J.D. Davis. Mantiply has had a solid start to the season, posting a 0.00 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 3:1 K:BB through 6.2 innings over seven appearances with a win and two holds in addition to Saturday's save.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Gets job done

    Mantiply allowed one hit over one-third of a inning in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Houston.

    The Diamondbacks got effective work from their middle relievers Tuesday. Mantiply was one of four that combined for three scoreless innings before closer Mark Melancon lost the game in the ninth. Mantiply is lumped in with J.B. Wendelken and Noe Ramirez as guys that will work the sixth and seventh innings before Ian Kennedy and Melancon finish games. He's made three scoreless appearances, giving up two hits and a walk with one strikeout over 2.1 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Gives up tying run in return

    Mantiply allowed one run on one hit and struck out one over two-thirds of an inning in Monday's 6-5 loss to Pittsburgh.

    The Diamondbacks had a 5-2 lead entering the seventh inning, but the combination of Taylor Clarke and Mantiply let the Pirates tie it up. Mantiply made his first appearance since Aug. 12 after spending time on the COVID-19 injury list. He, like several others in the bullpen, is pitching for a spot on next season's roster.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Reinstated from COVID-19 IL

    Mantiply (undisclosed) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

    Mantiply spent just over a week on the COVID-19 IL due to contact tracing after starting pitcher Merrill Kelly tested positive for the virus. The 30-year-old southpaw has made eight relief appearances for the Diamondbacks, and he's recorded a 3.38 ERA and 2.25 WHIP with four holds in 5.1 innings during that time.
