Mets RP Tyler Clippard gets into first game with new team Tuesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/28/15) Mets reliever Tyler Clippard pitched in his first game with his new team on Tuesday. The right-hander worked a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one hit, to close out the 4-0 victory over the Padres.
The Mets were prepared to go with Jeurys Familia in the ninth, but the Mets scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth, removing the chance for a save. So manager Terry Collins opted to get Clippard's feet wet instead.
Athletics deal closer Tyler Clippard to Mets for pitching prospect
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/27/15) The Athletics have announced that they have dispatched closer Tyler Clippard to the Mets for top pitching prospect Casey Meisner.
It remains to be seen if Clippard keeps that role in the Big Apple. Jeurys Familia has blown his last two save opportunities for the Mets, but he is still 27 of 31 in shutting down opponents and owns a fine 1.70 ERA.
The 30-year-old Clippard has been a bit less effective with Oakland. He has converted 17 of 21 save chances and has a mediocre 2.79 ERA.
Meisner has been promoted from Class A to Class A Advanced this season. He is 3-2 with a 2.83 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 35 innings in his latest stint.
Mets, Nationals among teams interested in A's Tyler Clippard
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/27/15) The Mets and Nationals are among a few teams considering a trade for Athletics closer Tyler Clippard, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Both teams would consider Clippard for a setup role.
The Yankees have also been tied to Clippard, but there is no evidence they are involved at the moment, per Heyman.
Athletics RP Tyler Clippard fails to convert save Wednesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/23/15) Athletics pitcher Tyler Clippard had trouble with his control during Wednesday's appearance, which led to him blowing the save in the 4-3 win over the Blue Jays.
Clippard entered in the ninth inning with a one-run lead, but he walked three batters and gave up one hit, which led to the tying run. It was his fourth blown save this season, but the A's won the game in the 10th inning.
Athletics closer Tyler Clippard lights-out in securing win Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/11/15) Bob Melvin is unafraid to summon Athletics closer Tyler Clippard in the eighth inning to squelch rallies and begin the save process.
Such was the case Saturday night in Cleveland, when Clippard retired Giovanny Urshela to end the eighth and nailed it down with a 1-2-3 ninth for his 17th save of the season.
Clippard has not allowed a run or hit in his last six appearances.
|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.
