  • Reds' Sam Moll: Resumes rehab assignment

    Moll (shoulder) made his first appearance in a week for Triple-A Louisville on Sunday while on a rehab assignment. He allowed a walk and struck out one over a scoreless inning.

    Moll began his stint with Louisville on March 29 and pitched regularly until the rehab assignment was paused a week ago, per C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic. The pause occurred after he threw on back-to-back days.

    The Reds placed Moll (shoulder) on the 15-day injured list Wednesday.

  • Reds' Sam Moll: Makes spring debut

    Moll allowed two runs on two hits and two walks over one inning in Monday's spring game against the Giants.

    Moll, who was delayed by left shoulder soreness, made his spring debut Monday. Despite the results, Moll is a lock for a bullpen spot provided he can build up over the next week.

  • Reds' Sam Moll: Set for spring debut

    Moll (shoulder) will make his Cactus League debut Monday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Moll came into camp behind schedule after feeling some left shoulder soreness during his offseason throwing program. He's been cleared for game action, though, and the Reds believe he can ramp up in time for Opening Day. Assuming health, Moll should be one of the team's key left-handed relievers.

  • Reds' Sam Moll: Possibility for Opening Day

    Moll (shoulder) has a chance to be ready in time for Opening Day, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Moll entered training camp behind schedule and hasn't yet pitched in a major-league spring training game, but he has been able to put in work and is ahead of teammate Alex Young (back). With Young set to begin the season on the injured list, the Reds have a greater need for Moll as a lefty specialist, which might lead to a few more opportunities to record holds early on.

  • Reds' Sam Moll: Behind in throwing program

    Moll experienced some shoulder soreness in his offseason throwing program and thus is behind the other Reds pitchers in camp, Gordon Wittenmyer of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Moll is still expected to be ready for the start of the season and is playing catch, but he's the one pitcher behind his teammates so far this spring.

  • Reds' Sam Moll: Earns win

    Moll (2-3) allowed one hit and one walk while striking out two over two scoreless innings to earn the win over Cleveland on Tuesday.

    Moll and others in the bullpen combined for six scoreless innings, giving the offense a chance to overcome a disastrous outing from starter Hunter Greene. Moll has not allowed a run over his last 19 appearances (18 innings) and sports a shiny 0.76 ERA across 23.2 innings since being acquired by the Reds at the trade deadline.

  • Reds' Sam Moll: Traded to Cincy

    The Athletics traded Moll to Cincinnati on Monday in exchange for Joe Boyle, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Moll has taken a notable step back this season from his 2022 campaign, putting up a 4.54 ERA and 1.41 WHIP across 37.2 innings. Moll's high strikeout rate could buy him a few high-leverage appearances with Cincinnati, but the 31-year-old lefty will likely work primarily in low-to-mid-leverage situations.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Earns first career save

    Moll allowed two hits and struck out two without walking a batter in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Yankees.

    Moll wasn't exactly sharp, but he was able to navigate the traffic on the basepaths to earn his first career save. He's filled a high-leverage role at times this year with five holds through 34 appearances, but Trevor May has handled most of the Athletics' closing chances in June. Moll has a 3.99 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 35:15 K:BB over 29.1 innings, though the lack of leads to protect limits his appeal in most fantasy formats despite the strong strikeout numbers.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: To serve as opener Friday

    Moll will serve as the Athletics' opening pitcher Friday against the Brewers, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Luis Medina had been the listed starter for Oakland, but he'll instead operate in bulk relief. Moll owns a 4.57 ERA through 21.2 innings this year, working exclusively out of the bullpen.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Takes third loss Monday

    Moll (0-3) took the loss against the Pirates on Monday, allowing an earned run on two hits over one inning. He struck out one.

    Entrusted with preserving a 4-4 tie upon entering in the eighth, Moll wasn't quite up to the task, ultimately allowing an Andrew McCutchen sacrifice fly that would prove to be the difference in the game. The left-hander saw a five-appearance scoreless streak snapped with Monday's stumble, and although he does boast a career-high 10.0 K/9 at the moment and has yet to allow a home run through 21.2 innings, he's also carrying a career-worst 5.4 BB/9.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Takes loss Sunday

    Moll (0-2) took the loss in extra innings against the Mets on Sunday, allowing an unearned run in 1.1 innings while also recording a strikeout.

    Moll was a prototypical tough-luck loser in the one-run defeat, especially considering his outing began with an inning-ending double play he induced from Eduardo Escobar with the bases loaded in the ninth to preserve a 3-3 tie. However, a Francisco Alvarez sacrifice fly that moved Escobar, the inning-opening runner, to third base in the 10th ended up costing Moll, as a Zach Jackson wild pitch eventually allowed the Mets' third baseman to cross the plate with what proved to be the winning run. The 31-year-old southpaw hasn't allowed an earned run in seven of his eight appearances, making him a trusted relief asset early.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Uneven through five spring outings

    Moll owns a 5.68 ERA and 2.05 WHIP across 6.1 innings in five Cactus League appearances.

    The southpaw has allowed four earned runs on nine hits, four walks and a hit batsman in that sample, underscoring the fact his location isn't yet near regular-season readiness. Moll has found a way around his control issues during his first two seasons with the Athletics, however, as he's garnered 16 holds while posting a 3.02 ERA in 53.2 innings over that span despite also issuing 27 walks.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Seemingly healthy for spring

    Moll (shoulder) is listed as an available option out of the Oakland bullpen for Monday's Cactus League game against the Rockies, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Moll appears to be healthy enough to make his spring debut Monday after a left shoulder strain kept him sidelined for the final three weeks of the 2022 campaign. Before picking up the injury, the southpaw compiled a 2.91 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 46:22 K:BB across 43.1 innings for Oakland while collecting two wins and 16 holds. He'll likely settle into a middle-relief or setup role in the Athletics bullpen to begin the 2023 season.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Will miss rest of season

    Moll (shoulder) will not return in 2022, the Associated Press reports.

    The book is therefore closed on a very encouraging campaign for the 30-year-old, who mostly toiled in the minor leagues for eight-plus seasons before finally sticking on the big-league roster in 2021. Moll came into his own this season, producing a 2.91 ERA and 9.6 K/9 with two wins and 16 holds across 53 appearances. Under full team control through 2024, Moll should be healthy well in advance of spring training and slot into a key middle-relief role in 2023.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Out with shoulder strain

    Moll hit the injured list with a left shoulder strain Friday.

    Moll will technically be eligible to return for the final six days of the season, but it's quite possible he's done for the year. Jared Koenig was recalled to take his place on the roster.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Falls apart in first loss

    Moll (2-1) took the loss against the Astros on Friday, allowing four earned runs on three hits and a walk without recording an out.

    Moll's meltdown was highly atypical, considering he'd come into the night with a 2.02 ERA and had allowed more than one earned run just once in 43 appearances. However, the left-hander simply couldn't find his groove Friday after entering with Yuli Gurriel on first, putting Yordan Alvarez and Alex Bregman on via a single and a walk, respectively, before conceding a grand slam to Kyle Tucker. Moll's significant stumble aside, he's been a viable fantasy asset in formats that count holds, having garnered 12 of them alongside his pair of wins and a 10.1 K/9.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Adds to scoreless streak Friday

    Moll fired two scoreless innings in a loss to the Astros on Friday, allowing two hits and recording a strikeout.

    Moll got through his pair of frames on a relatively efficient 20 pitches, authoring his fourth straight scoreless appearance in the process. The left-hander has been one of manager Mark Kotsay's most reliable bullpen assets all season, recording a pair of victories and six holds while even logging a trio of outings of more than one inning.
