|Anthony Bass seeing a lot of work|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(4/29/13) Padres pitcher Anthony Bass entered Monday's series opener against the Cubs leading the majors in innings pitched by a reliever. The right-hander has thrown 18 innings over eight appearances and owns a 3.00 ERA.
"Obviously I've thrown a lot," Bass told MLB.com. "But I kinda like that. I've started and relieved. Most of my time in the minors, I've started. It's nothing new to me to kind of do something like that. But I think the team watches over how much I've thrown. Especially having two long guys in the bullpen now definitely helps, so my workload doesn't get to be too much."

(3/24/13) Padres pitcher Anthony Bass still wants to start in the major leagues. That said, from the start of spring training he's agreed to pitch in a relief role for San Diego this season, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
"Eventually," Bass said Sunday, clearly placing the emphasis on his first word, "I want to be a starting pitcher. I see myself as a starting pitcher."
But when manager Bud Black asked him whether he'd prefer to start at Triple-A or pitch in relief in San Diego, Bass decided he wanted to remain with the big club. Now, he'll have a versatile role for the Padres this season.
"Anthony is the only pitcher on our staff who can start, come out of the bullpen in long relief or pitch in the seventh or eighth inning in a key spot," Padres pitching coach Darren Balsley said. "There is a lot of versatility there."
The 25-year-old hurler has allowed three earned runs over 11 spring innings thus far for an ERA of 2.45 with 10 strikeouts.
|Bass scoreless in spring debut|
|(2/26/13) Padres pitcher Anthony Bass is competing for a spot in the rotation this spring and looked sharp in his Cactus League debut on Tuesday against the Reds. He worked two scoreless innings, giving up one hit. The right-hander threw 16 pitches, 10 for strikes. "My take on this whole competition is I'm going to go out and pitch my game," Bass said to MLB.com. "I'm going to go out there and show the team I can help them win."
|Last year, in his first full major-league season, Anthony Bass had an uneven performance that didn't exactly clarify his role going forward. The Padres liked his performance as a reliever in 2011 enough to give him a look as a starter early in 2012, and his first eight starts, he looked a mainstay, posting a 2.94 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with more than a strikeout per inning. But then, he endured a rocky six-start stretch that inflated his ERA by nearly two runs and culminated with a trip to the DL for shoulder inflammation. When he returned in late September, it was as a reliever, and though he produced a 2.79 ERA in seven appearances, his strikeout rate during that stretch suggests his stuff wasn't quite up to snuff. So how much did the injury influence his performance? Is it completely behind him now? Will the Padres give him another shot as a starter, or is he confined to the bullpen indefinitely? It's all a guessing game right now. Because he throws relatively hard, his potential as a starter is intriguing, but he's looking like a long shot for a rotation spot this spring. Bass probably isn't your best choice in NL-only leagues. (Updated 1/2/13)|
