  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Avoids arbitration with Arizona

    Mantiply signed a one-year, $935,000 contract with the Diamondbacks on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Mantiply lost his role as a high-leverage option out of the Arizona bullpen in 2023, as he posted a 4.62 ERA across 39 frames in the majors. He saw a significant dip in strikeouts and his lack of velocity could continue to lead to inconsistent results.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: To open Game 4

    Mantiply will work as the opener for Game 4 of the World Series against the Rangers on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Mantiply last pitched during Game 1, striking out one batter over a scoreless inning of relief work. He figures to work the first inning or so before handing the ball to a primary pitcher. The Diamondbacks have yet to reveal any pitching plans past Mantiply, but Ryne Nelson would figure to be one of the top candidates to get outs, as he's yet to take the mound this series.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Starting bullpen game

    Mantiply will start Game 4 of the NLCS against the Phillies on Friday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Mantiply has made four appearances during Arizona's postseason run, but he was roughed up in Game 2 against the Phillies, when he allowed three earned runs while recording just one out. He's likely to pitch only one inning, with Ryne Nelson a strong candidate to cover bulk innings after him.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Opening Sunday

    Mantiply will start Sunday's game against the Cubs, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    The 32-year-old will make his third start of the season as the Diamondbacks decided to go with an opener ahead of expected primary pitcher Brandon Pfaadt, who was originally scheduled to start the contest. Mantiply has covered as much as three frames in an appearance this season, but he's likely to pitch only an inning or two Sunday.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Serving as opener Monday

    Mantiply is scheduled to work as the Diamondbacks' opening pitcher for Monday's game against the Rangers, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.

    Mantiply hasn't tossed more than three innings in any of his 31 appearances in the majors or minors this season and hasn't exceeded two innings in more than two months, so he's unlikely to work more than once through the Texas batting order before exiting the contest. Slade Cecconi, who had initially been listed as Arizona's scheduled starter for Monday, will most likely work in bulk relief behind Mantiply.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Takes loss

    Mantiply (1-1) was charged with Monday's loss to the Rockies. He allowed three runs on three hits and did not retire a batter.

    Mantiply and Scott McGough combined to cough up an Arizona lead in the eighth inning. Mantiply, who is expected to serve as an opener Tuesday, threw just 11 pitches, so Monday's usage should not prevent him from carrying out that assignment. Since returning to the majors Aug. 1, the left-hander has allowed six runs on six hits and one walk over 4.1 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Opening Tuesday's contest

    Mantiply will serve as the Diamondbacks' opening pitcher for Tuesday's game in Colorado, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.

    After taking the loss in relief in Monday's series opener at Coors Field while failing to retire any of the three batters he faced en route to allowing three earned runs, Mantiply will get back on the hill Tuesday and attempt to right the ship. He tossed only 11 pitches Monday, so Mantiply should be able to give Arizona an inning or two before turning the game over to the bullpen. Arizona hasn't named a designated bulk reliever for the day, but manager Torey Lovullo could lean heavily on either Slade Cecconi or Bryce Jarvis, both of whom have started in the minors for most of the season and are available on three days' rest.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Serving as opener Tuesday

    Mantiply will work as the opener for Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Mantiply will be asked to navigate the first inning or so before handing the ball to a primary pitcher. However, the team has yet to reveal who will be called upon in long relief. The lefty has made four appearances so far in August, surrendering three runs on three hits and one walk while fanning three over 4.1 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Recalled from Reno

    The Diamondbacks recalled Mantiply from Triple-A Reno on Tuesday, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Mantiply has taken a major step back this season, accumulating a 5.74 ERA and 1.09 WHIP through 15.2 innings in the majors this season (2.85 ERA in 2022). He hasn't fared well in Triple-A either, but he'll still be called upon to provide Arizona's bullpen with a fresh arm. Peter Strzelecki, who was acquired in a trade with the Brewers on Tuesday, was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Sent down to Triple-A

    Mantiply was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Mantiply was up for a few days while Andrew Chafin was on paternity leave but now heads back to Reno with Chafin back in the fold. The 2022 All-Star has had a tougher time in 2023 with a 5.74 ERA in 13 appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Recalled from Reno

    Arizona recalled Mantiply from Triple-A Reno on Wednesday.

    Mantiply was optioned to Reno at the end of June and had allowed eight runs -- seven earned -- in 6.2 innings of relief since that demotion. The 32-year-old left-hander figures to operate in a low-leverage bullpen role in his return to the major-league level.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Dispatched to Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks optioned Mantiply to Triple-A Reno on Monday.

    The 2022 All-Star's move to the minors comes after he surrendered eight earned runs over eight innings across his five relief appearances since Arizona reinstated him from the 15-day injured list June 12. The Diamondbacks haven't announced a corresponding roster move for Mantiply, who could be back in the Arizona bullpen after stringing together a few quality appearances at Triple-A.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Comes back from IL

    The Diamondbacks reinstated Mantiply (hamstring) from the 15-day injured list Monday.

    The 2022 All-Star will rejoin the Arizona bullpen after he had been on the shelf for just over a month with a right hamstring strain. Maniply received the green light to return from the IL after making a pair of minor-league rehab appearances last week.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Nearing return

    Mantiply (hamstring) struck out two over a perfect inning Friday in a rehab appearance for Triple-A Reno.

    Mantiply looks to be closing in on a return from the Diamondbacks' 15-day injured list after he was shut down in early May with a strained right hamstring. After facing hitters in live batting practice without issue, Mantiply began a rehab assignment with the Diamondbacks' rookie-level Arizona Complex League last Tuesday. He made one appearance in the ACL before advancing his rehab assignment to Reno.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Bullpen session scheduled

    Mantiply (hamstring) will throw bullpen sessions Tuesday and Thursday.

    Mantiply, who opened the season on the injured list with a shoulder injury, felt discomfort in his right hamstring while warming up May 11. The left-hander was effective during his brief spell off the IL, posting a 2.35 ERA with eight strikeouts over 7.2 innings.
