Athletics | Extended outing for Tyler Clippard

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 19:46:08 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard recorded a four-out save against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, July 1, striking out two and allowing no one to reach base.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard has recorded more than three outs in three of his last four saves, and the Athletics appear to have plenty of confidence in him. With Sean Doolittle still more than a month away, Clippard looks like a safe bet to hold down the closer's job for the remainder of the season.

Athletics | Tyler Clippard records save Thursday

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 15:18:38 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard worked a perfect ninth inning against the Texas Rangers for his 13th save in 15 chances Thursday, June 25. He hadn't pitched since Sunday, June 21, due to a heavy workload over the weekend. He was the first A's reliever since 1996 with saves of three or more outs on consecutive days over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard doesn't have any challengers for the closer role in Oakland at the moment. However, he could become trade bait this summer, leaving either Evan Scribner or Drew Pomeranz in line to take over the ninth-inning role. Sean Doolittle remains on the DL and has no timetable for a return. Drop Doolittle in shallow mixed leagues if you no longer have the room.

Athletics | Tyler Clippard should be available Wednesday

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 15:10:33 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard is expected to be available to pitch in a closing situation Wednesday, June 24, according to manager Bob Melvin.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard was unavailable for a save situation last night after having a heavy workload over the weekend. As a result, Drew Pomeranz recorded the save against the Texas Rangers. Clippard will remain the team's closer for the foreseeable future with Sean Doolittle still on the DL and with no timetable for his return in sight.

Athletics | Tyler Clippard could be unavailable

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:18:58 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard may not be available to close Tuesday, June 23, after throwing 62 total pitches over the weekend. Manager Bob Melvin is waiting to see how Clippard feels before the game Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: If Clippard is shut down tonight, Evan Scribner is the obvious candidate to come in for a save chance against the Texas Rangers. Don't add Scribner just for the chance that he records a save tonight, however, his excellent numbers in relief make him attractive to a fantasy pitching staff in deeper leagues.

Athletics | Heavy workload for Tyler Clippard

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 18:34:03 -0700

Oakland Athletics Tyler Clippard picked up a five-out save in a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, June 21. He picked up a four-out save the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard should see the bulk of the save chances for the Athletics for the foreseeable future, but don't be surprised if he is given the night off Monday, June 22, after back-to-back extended saves.

Blue Jays | TOR interested in Tyler Clippard

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 13:08:57 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays, who are searching for both starting and relief help, have expressed interest in trading for Oakland Athletics CL Tyler Clippard.

Fantasy Tip: Closers are luxuries that floundering teams like the A's don't need. Through 25 games this season, Clippard is 1-3 with a 3.20 ERA and nine saves.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle back to DL

Sat, 30 May 2015 14:22:14 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left shoulder Saturday, May 30. Doolittle looked uncomfortable playing catch and missed pitcher's fielding practice this weekend. RP Tyler Clippard will continue closing games.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard's seat cools a bit, and he should be owned in leagues where saves are relevant.

Athletics | Tyler Clippard to lose job soon?

Tue, 05 May 2015 19:09:14 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard has been filling in as the closer while RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) has been sidelined. There haven't been many save chances, as Clippard is 0-2 with a 2.61 ERA in 10 games with two saves in three chances.

Fantasy Tip: When Doolittle returns, Clippard is likely to return to a setup role, so fantasy owners will want to start preparing for that. Doolittle is making progress and could return in the next couple of weeks.

Athletics | Tyler Clippard notches first save

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 23:41:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard nailed down his first save of the season Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard has been pretty shaky to begin the season with five walks in as many innings. He has limited the damage with one earned run, but his closer seat could be warming. Dan Otero could be someone to target for a speculative pickup in deeper leagues.

Athletics | Tyler Clippard the A's closer

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 10:59:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard has been named the team's closer to start the season.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard enters as the closer because of an injury to Sean Doolittle (shoulder), who could miss the first month of the season. Both relievers are worth owning in deep mixed leagues, and Clippard could hang onto the job if he's pitching well when Doolittle returns.
