Athletics' Tyler Clippard wants more work
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Athletics closer Tyler Clippard hasn't had many save opportunities this season. He's appeared in just 10 of the team's first 27 games, and just three have been save opportunities.
"I’m surprised at how much I’ve pitched so far,"’ Clippard said, per the Inside the A's blog. "I’m used to pitching a lot, and I like it. It’s been a fluky season for us so for. We’ve won by a lot, we lost by a lot. It’s been a weird year. It’s different not pitching. You get anxious out there, wondering when it will happen. You don’t want frustrations to build up. As much as possible you want to keep on an even keel, and it becomes difficult."
Athletics reliever Tyler Clippard throws perfect ninth inning for save

|(5/1/15) Athletics reliever Tyler Clippard (S,2) notched a 1-2-3 ninth inning on Friday to earn the save over the Rangers.
Athletics closer Tyler Clippard blows save, earns loss Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Athletics closer Tyler Clippard had a Sunday to forget in Oakland's 7-6 loss to the Astros. Clippard came on with a 6-5 lead in the eighth, but quickly saw issues as he allowed the first two batters he faced to reach safely in the ninth.
After striking out George Springer, Clippard intentionally walked Jed Lowrie to get to Evan Gattis. But Clippard gave up a huge double to center field, over Sam Fuld's head, to score two and give Houston the lead.
"We're having trouble with the bullpen. Defensively, we're giving teams extra outs. All those things end up costing you," manager Bob Melvin said to Bay Area News Group.
The Astros finished things off in the bottom half of the ninth to saddle Clippard with his second loss of the year. He now boasts a 3.24 ERA in 8 1/3 innings of work.
Athletics P Tyler Clippard earns first save of season Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) After going the first 13 games without a save opportunity, Athletics pitcher Tyler Clippard converted his first save chance of the season during the A's 6-3 win over the Angels on Monday.
Clippard entered the game with a three-run lead in the ninth inning, but walked two batters before recording the final out. He also struck out one batter.
|2014 Summary: Tyler Clippard's 2014 season went about like his previous five had gone. One of the game's top setup men since the Nationals first introduced him to the role in 2009, he was again a sure thing in the eighth inning, leading the majors with 40 holds. His 2.18 ERA was his lowest in three years, and his 1.00 WHIP gave him a 0.96 mark over the last four.|
Playing time status: The Nationals passed Clippard over for Drew Storen when they replaced Rafael Soriano as their closer in September, and then this offseason, they dealt him to the Athletics for Yunel Escobar. At least temporarily, Clippard is likely to get a chance to close after all, as he is the leading candidate to replace the injured Sean Doolittle.
2015 Outlook: Because it's not clear how long Doolittle will be out, Clippard has some appeal as a late-round option in standard mixed leagues. Though he is three seasons removed from a 32-save campaign, Clippard still has the skills to be an effective closer as long as he gets to keep the job.
