  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Closes out Bucs

    Ginkel allowed one walk and struck out one over a scoreless two innings in Sunday's 8-3 win over Pittsburgh.

    Ginkel closed out the game, pitching the eighth and ninth innings. It was the third consecutive multi-inning appearance for Ginkel, who enters games any time between the fifth and ninth innings. The right-hander, who was rocked by the Dodgers on April 1, has a 1.93 ERA over 18.2 innings since.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Strands runner in win

    Ginkel allowed one hit and struck out one over 1.1 innings in Sunday's 5-0 win over Miami.

    Ginkel entered the seventh inning with a runner on second and two outs and struck out Avisail Garcia to end the threat. The right-hander appears to have solved the issue with pitch-tipping that flared up against the Dodgers two weeks ago. Since then, Ginkel has allowed one run and four hits while striking out five over five innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Making adjustments

    Ginkel believes he might have tipped his pitches Saturday against the Dodgers and plans to make adjustments, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Images posted by Eno Sarris of The Athletic appeared to show patterns in Ginkel's right wrist and arms indicating when he'd throw a slider or fastball. "It definitely makes it easier for them if they know what's coming," Ginkel said. "It's a totally different outing if that doesn't happen. I'll make some adjustments today." The reliever allowed three runs on two hits, including a home run to Trayce Thompson, in a 10-1 loss.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Enters game early

    Ginkel allowed three runs on two hits and one walk while striking out one over one inning in Saturday's 10-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    Ginkel, who is part of the committee expected to get save opportunities, pitched the fifth inning. It was his second appearance of the season, and both have been when the Diamondbacks were behind. It's been a rough start for Arizona pitching. The starters have averaged four innings, and the staff has a 6.84 ERA. The pitching, along with an offense ranked 28th in OPS with one walk in three games, makes it hard for manager Torey Lovullo to establish set bullpen roles.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: No earned runs allowed

    Ginkel retired the two batters he faced in Friday's spring game against the Reds.

    Ginkel has not allowed an earned run over five Cactus League outings (4.2 innings). The right-hander could be moving into the pole position to become Arizona's closer, given Mark Melancon's results this spring (16.88 ERA). Andrew Chafin (groin) and Joe Mantiply are also in the mix for saves.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Takes loss in sloppy eighth

    Ginkel (1-1) picked up the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, allowing three runs (one earned) on two walks without retiring a batter.

    The Diamondbacks held a 5-1 lead entering the eighth inning, but it all melted away as Caleb Smith, Ginkel and Joe Mantiply couldn't hold it. Smith departed after ceding a two-run home run before Ginkel, who was victimized by Josh Rojas' fielding error and his inability to locate (14 pitches, five strikes). Mantiply entered a bases-loaded, none-out situation and couldn't prevent the winning runs from scoring. The back end of Arizona's bullpen has been shaky, so manager Torey Lovullo has been using relievers other than Mark Melancon and Ian Kennedy with mixed results.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Joins Arizona bullpen

    Ginkel was called up from Triple-A Reno on Monday.

    Ginkel earned his way onto Arizona's roster by posting a 1.17 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 45:12 K:BB in 30.2 innings over 30 relief appearances with Reno. Despite the stellar numbers, don't expect him to occupy a key spot in Arizona's bullpen out of the gate.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Pitching for Triple-A club

    Ginkel (elbow) has made two relief appearances for Triple-A Reno this season, covering two scoreless innings and striking out three while giving up one hit and no walks.

    Ginkel finished the 2021 campaign on the Diamondbacks' 60-day injured list with right elbow inflammation, but after he was activated and outrighted off the 40-man roster in November, he reported to spring training at full health. The right-hander fell short in his bid for a spot in Arizona's Opening Day bullpen and will look to impress at Triple-A before earning another look with the big club.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Outrighted to minors

    Ginkel (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Ginkel spent the final few weeks of the 2021 campaign on the 60-day injured list, and he'll remain off the 40-man roster after several prospects had their contracts selected Friday. The right-hander posted a 6.35 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 28.1 innings across 32 relief appearances in the big leagues last year.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Lands on 60-day IL

    Ginkel was recalled from Triple-A Reno and placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday with right elbow inflammation.

    Ginkel landed on the injured list at Reno in late July, and he's being move to the major-league 60-day IL to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. There's been no indication where the 27-year-old is at in his recovery, but given the length of his absence, he won't be returning down the stretch for Arizona.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Demoted to Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks optioned Ginkel to Triple-A Reno following Saturday's 9-3 loss to the Dodgers.

    Ginkel's demotion comes in the wake of perhaps his worst relief appearance of the season. During Saturday's loss, Ginkel retired only three of the eight batters he faced in a 36-pitch outing, giving up three earned runs on a double and four walks. The loss of control was a surprise from Ginkel; he had issued only three free passes over his last 14 relief appearances combined.
