Angels shopping for bullpen help


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) The Angels are looking to add one or two arms to help solidify the back end of the team's bullpen, with Padres pitchers Huston Street and Joaquin Benoit, Phillies pitcher Jonathan Papelbon and Antonio Bastardo and Athletics pitcher Jim Johnson of interest to the team, MLB.com reports.

"This is by far the most talent we've had in the bullpen since I've been here, the most depth -- we just haven't been able to figure out how to get it on a consistent roll yet," general manager Jerry Dipoto said, though he wouldn't comment on specific targets. "There are pieces here that are very functional in getting to a good bullpen, and I believe that we'll get there. But we are going to have to address some of that in July and help this group out."

The Angels have received spotty play from former ninth-inning man Ernesto Frieri this season, and they'd like to bring a southpaw aboard so that Hector Santiago has the flexibility to move to the rotation if needed. Expect the Angels to keep cropping up in reliever trade rumors over the next month-plus.


Antonio Bastardo picks up relief win in extras


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Phillies pitcher Antonio Bastardo struck out and worked his way past a hit in two scoreless frames for the win in extras against the Braves in Atlanta. Bastardo moved to 4-3 on the season, with a 2.94 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP in 33 2/3 innings of relief.

Antonio Bastardo takes loss in 14-inning game Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Phillies pitcher Antonio Bastardo was hung with a loss Saturday after giving up one earned run on one hit and two walks in one inning of work as his team fell to the Mets, 5-4, in 14 innings.

Bastardo (3-3) issued a walk to begin the top of the 14th inning, and added an intentional walk after the leadoff hitter was advanced to second base on a sacrifice. The reliever got the next batter to pop out, but David Wright delivered an RBI single to bring the decisive run home. Bastardo owns a 3.86 ERA and 31:20 K:BB ratio in 25 2/3 innings.


Phillies bullpen can't get job done with closer unavailable


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) The Phillies took a 4-1 lead into the ninth inning Sunday against the Mets, which would usually be a situation for closer Jonathan Papelbon to enter the game. However, he was unavailable after pitching Friday and Saturday, and the bullpen couldn't hold a three-run lead.

Antonio Bastardo allowed a leadoff double to Eric Young in the bottom of the ninth before Daniel Murphy parked a two-run homer over the right-field wall. Bastardo was lifted after allowing a one-out double to Chris Young.

Starting pitcher Roberto Hernandez entered the game and allowed a line-drive single to Bobby Abreu. Young moved up to third base. He would then score on Juan Lagares' slow roller to shortstop. Hernandez finished off the inning with a strikeout of Anthony Recker, but the game was tied and headed into extra innings.

The Mets eventually won the game in the bottom of the 11th inning on a walk-off single from Ruben Tejada.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bastardo walked the first batter he faced, and that runner would come around to score after a stolen base, a sacrifice bunt and an error. After recording another out, Bastardo hit a batter before serving up a two-run triple. He had pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings going into Wednesday's game, and the eighth-inning triple was the first hit he allowed this season.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"Obviously, the Phillies are very disappointed to learn of Antonio Bastardo's violation of Major League Baseball's Drug Program," Phillies president and CEO David Montgomery said in a press release. "We strongly believe in the Program and look forward to a time when performance enhancing drugs are completely out of baseball. Hopefully the sanctions announced today will bring us closer to that day. We respect the fact that Antonio has acknowledged his serious mistake and accepted his 50-game suspension."

by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com

The left-hander has yet to allow a run through two innings pitched this year.

Antonio Bastardo set for new role


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2013) With a new role and an improved mindset, Phillies relief pitcher Antonio Bastardo is aiming for his finest season in 2013. The hard-throwing lefty appeared in a career-high 65 games last year and fanned 14.02 hitters per nine innings, behind only Craig Kimbrel (16.6) and Aroldis Chapman (15.3) among NL relievers (minimum 10 games).

"I need to push myself harder," he told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "I'm that kind of guy, if I let myself hang around, I do badly. ... When everything is right, it doesn't matter what hitter is up there."

Despite his glowing numbers, Bastardo will not serve as the setup man this year as that title has been bestowed to Mike Adams, who joined the club in the offseason. The Phillies believe Bastardo will benefit from the presence of the veteran right-hander and the comfort of a position with less stress.

"Mike Adams is going to be good for Antonio," pitching coach Rich Dubee said.


Phils expect Bastardo to rebound


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2013) MLB.com reports the Phillies expect reliever Antonio Bastardo to rebound in 2013 after an up and down 2012 campaign. "There was something," Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee said. "Not delivery-wise as much as it was using both sides of the plate. He was dominant right-handed in, fastball and slider behind it. He did not pitch away very much to right-handed hitters. He started using both sides of the plate more. Antonio's fine. He's fine. Like I said the other day: Put him out there. Put him on the wire and see if 29 teams don't come calling. You don't think they do?"

by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
