Zach Duke takes first loss Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Brewers pitcher Zach Duke was stuck with his first loss Wednesday, giving up one earned run on two hits and one walk while recording two outs in his team's 3-2, 10th-inning defeat against the Padres.

Duke (4-1) put the first two batters of the bottom of the 10th inning on base but looked like he may escape with the game still tied after retiring the next two batters. It didn't happen, as a single brought home the game-ending run. Duke, who has put together a rocky August, owns a 2.47 ERA and 63:15 K:BB ratio in 51 innings.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Brewers reliever Zach Duke, who is in camp on a minor-league contract, impressed the coaching staff as the team went through the first round of live batting practice this week, according to MLB.com.

"He's got better stuff than you think he does," manager Ron Roenicke said. "It's really 'live.' He's got good movement, he's got a real nice breaking ball. So he's doing what he can to show us pretty early on what's going on. But I don't want to make any evaluations when we're this early."

Izturis served as a utility infielder this season, while Parra and Duke worked out of the bullpen. Masset did not pitch in 2013 due to shoulder issues and thoracic outlet syndrome.

Zach Duke preparing to get ball Tuesday


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2013) Nationals starter Zach Duke has not been told whether or not he'll start Tuesday in place of injured Ross Detwiler against the Orioles, CSN Washington reports. That said, Duke is preparing as if he'll get the ball. 

Duke has made 10 appearances this season for Washington but only one start. He took the loss in that start as he allowed four runs on seven hits and no walks over just 3 1/3 innings with one strikeout in San Francisco. 


Zach Duke has ugly fill-in performance


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2013) Nationals pitcher Zach Duke took the place of Ross Detwiler Monday in San Francisco. He didn't get any run support in the 8-0 loss, but things didn't go so well for Duke, either. 

Duke (0-1) took the defeat as he allowed four earned runs on seven hits and no walks spanning just 3 1/3 innings before giving way to Craig Stammen. He struck out just one and threw 58 pitches. 

The 30-year-old has made 10 appearances this season for Washington but this was his first as a starter. It is also likely his last for a while. His ERA is now at 8.84 on the year with a 1.80 WHIP. 


Nationals tab Zach Duke for Monday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2013) Nationals pitcher Zach Duke will move from the bullpen to the rotation Monday against the Giants, to replace Ross Detwiler for at least one turn. The team announced the move Saturday. 

Duke has an 8.40 ERA in 15 innings out of the bullpen this season and has not started since 2011, when he had a 5.47 ERA in nine starts for the Diamondbacks. 


Zach Duke probably won't join rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2013) The Nationals are reportedly leaning toward using Craig Stammen, not Zach Duke, in the event that Ross Detwiler cannot start Monday against the Giants. Detwiler is dealing with back spasms and seems likely to miss at least one start.

Duke has an 8.40 ERA on the season, and the team would rather use Stammen, who pitched Wednesday and would be in line to pitch on normal rest if he has to join the rotation, according to The Washington Post


Zach Duke no longer top emergency starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2013) After announcing Thursday they re-signed starting pitcher Chris Young, Nationals manager Davey Johnson said Young will be the first pitcher called upon in case the team needs an emergency starter, according to MLB.com.

Zach Duke was originally called upon on the team's sixth starter, but he will now remain in his role as long reliever.

Duke hadn't made a relief appearance entering play Thursday. He posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 14 spring innings.


Zach Duke looked at as sixth starter


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2013) The Nationals will use Zach Duke, expected to pitch out of the bullpen, as the sixth starter if needed this season, reports MLB.com Tuesday. 

Duke will be the long man out of the bullpen and spot starter for the Nationals, according to manager Davey Johnson. 

Duke, mostly used as a starter over his career, has a 5.40 ERA this spring over seven appearances. 

"Zach's still learning how to pitch out of the 'pen," Johnson said. "He's been a starter his whole life. I thought he did a good job last year coming in. But it'll be a learning experience for me and him, and how much he can do coming out of there, since he's the only one out there."


Duke is top spot-start candidate


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2013) Nationals manager Davey Johnson told reporters Wednesday pitcher Zach Duke is the likely top candidate to be called upon in case the team needs a spot starter.
