  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Works as setup man

    Kinley allowed one hit and one walk while striking out one across a scoreless eighth inning in Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Kinley pitched with a five-run lead in a setup role for Justin Lawrence. It was his second appearance of the season, with the first coming in Friday's loss to Arizona. Though the team hasn't yet had a save chance, Kinley appears more likely to be in line for holds rather than saves to begin the new year.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Pitches final inning in loss

    Kinley allowed one hit and walked two while striking out one in a scoreless inning Friday against the Diamondbacks.

    Kinley is a candidate to serve as Colorado's closer, though he entered Friday's game with the Rockies down 7-3 in the eighth inning. He was also shaky in his first outing of the campaign, allowing a leadoff double before walking two. He escaped the jam, but it appears that Justin Lawrence may be in line to get the first chance for saves.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Perfect in spring

    Kinley has thrown five scoreless innings while maintaining a 7:2 K:BB during Cactus League action.

    Kinley is in competition for the closer role with Justin Lawrence, and both pitchers have performed well this spring. Kinley has allowed only one base hit across his five innings of work and has at least one strikeout in all five of his appearances. That doesn't guarantee he'll be first in line for save chances, but he's certainly made a strong case for the role.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: In mix for closer job

    Kinley will compete this spring with Justin Lawrence to be the Rockies' closer, Patrick Lyons of reports.

    Kinley missed much of the 2023 season following flexor tendon surgery but led the club with five saves in September. He didn't exactly pitch well that month, though, blowing one save opportunity and allowing five runs over 10.2 innings. It's a situation unlikely to bear much fantasy fruit no matter who wins -- Pierce Johnson led the Rockies with 13 saves last season.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Takes loss against Twins

    Kinley (0-4) allowed one earned run on two hits while striking out one to take the loss Friday against the Twins.

    Kinley entered the game in the ninth inning with the score knotted at 6-6. He allowed a pair of singles to begin the frame before ultimately allowing the game-winning run to score on a sacrifice fly. Despite maintaining an ugly 6.46 ERA and 1.70 WHIP across 15.1 innings this season, Kinley has earned three of Colorado's last four saves and is likely to be called upon if a save situation arises in the team's final two games.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Notches fifth save

    Kinley recorded his fifth save of the season in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, giving up a hit and striking out one batter in a scoreless ninth inning.

    All five of Kinley's saves have come in September, as the 32-year-old righty has fallen into the closer role after a number of other relievers spit the bit. He's been marginally effective, blowing only one of six save chances while being scored upon in two of nine appearances on the month, leaving him with a 4.15 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 7:4 K:BB over 8.2 innings. Depending on what reinforcements Colorado adds to its bullpen over the winter, Kinley could head into spring training next year as the favorite to retain the closing job.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Surrenders walk-off homer

    Kinley (0-3) took the loss in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Padres. He allowed two runs on one hit and one walk while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning.

    Kinley stepped into the game in the bottom of the ninth with the score 0-0 and managed to strike out two of the first three batters he faced. However, Xander Bogaerts tagged him for a two-run shot to walk it off for the Padres and give Kinley his third loss of 2023. Kinely has yielded mixed results over his last four outings, logging a pair of scoreless saves while giving up four total runs across his other two appearances, including a blown save and Tuesday's loss.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Picks up fourth save

    Kinley earned a save against the Giants in the nightcap of a doubleheader Saturday, allowing two hits and one walk while striking out one batter over one scoreless inning.

    Kinley got the call with the Rockies up three runs in the ninth inning and made things interesting, loading the bases on a pair of singles and a walk. However, he was able to get Blake Sabol to pop out to end the contest and nail down the save. Kinley has moved into the primary closer role for Colorado in September, notching four saves in five chances while allowing two runs on six hits and posting a 4:3 K:BB over seven frames.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Blows save chance Monday

    Kinley (0-2) blew a save and took the loss against the Cubs on Monday, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk over one inning.

    Kinley got the opportunity to notch his second save over his past three appearances, but he couldn't come through . The right-hander entered in the ninth inning trying to protect a one-run lead and quickly fell behind when each of the Cubs' first three batters reached base, with two of them scoring. To his credit, Kinley rebounded to retire the final three hitters he faced without allowing another run to cross, but that wasn't enough to prevent him from taking the loss. Kinley's recent save chances have come following a rough stretch by Justin Lawrence, who earned a hold with a scoreless 10th frame Monday. Lawrence hasn't allowed any runs over his past three outings and could still be in the closer mix, especially after Kinley's poor outing against Chicago.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Records second save

    Kinley pitched a perfect inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

    With two saves over three appearances in September, it appears Kinley has entered his name into the closer conversation for the Rockies. He's allowed just one walk over 2.1 innings this month while striking out two. The right-hander is at a 6.75 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB over eight innings for the season after recovering from June 2022 flexor tendon surgery. In addition to Kinley, Justin Lawrence is also in the mix for closing assignments.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Earns first save

    Kinley struck out the only batter he faced to earn the save in Saturday's 8-7 win over the Blue Jays.

    Kinley wasn't initially brought in for the save chance, but Justin Lawrence gave up two runs and left with the bases loaded. Kinley was able to strike out Spencer Horwitz to end the threat, earning his first save since 2019 in the process. This was Kinley's first appearance since Aug. 16 after a bout of elbow inflammation. The right-hander has a 9.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB through six innings this season. Despite Saturday's success, it's unlikely he sees many high-leverage opportunities under normal circumstances the rest of the way unless he continues to improve.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Activated Friday

    The Rockies reinstated Kinley (elbow) from the 15-day injured list Friday, Kelsey Wingert-Linch of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

    Kinley spent over a year on the injured list to begin the season while rehabbing from flexor tendon surgery, but he ended up back on the IL on Aug. 20 with inflammation in the same elbow. Now that he's healthy again, he'll rejoin the Rockies' bullpen and look to improve upon his less-than-stellar 9.53 ERA and 2.12 WHIP.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Set for rehab appearance Tuesday

    Kinley (elbow) will make a rehab appearance with Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Kelsey Wingert-Linch of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

    Kinley is getting the green light for game action a little over a week after landing on the 15-day injured list. He's eligible for activation Friday and appears on track to rejoin the Colorado bullpen that day if Tuesday's outing goes smoothly.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Back on IL with elbow issue

    The Rockies placed Kinley on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right elbow inflammation, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    After undergoing flexor tendon surgery last June, Kinley spent more than a year recovering and rehabbing before the Rockies brought him back from the 60-day injured list Aug. 1. Upon being activated, Kinley worked his way back into the setup ranks but largely struggled over his seven appearances, giving up six runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out eight over 5.2 innings. Now that Kinley is back on the IL with another injury in his surgically repaired elbow, the Rockies are likely to proceed cautiously with bringing him back. Colorado called up right-hander Tommy Doyle from Triple-A Albuquerque to replace Kinley in the bullpen.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Activated from 60-day IL

    Colorado activated Kinley (elbow) from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

    Finally recovered from his June 2022 flexor tendon surgery, Kinley will join the Rockies bullpen ahead of Tuesday's game against the Padres. He got hammered in his first minor-league rehab appearance back in early July but rallied for a 3.68 ERA and 9:1 K:BB over his next seven outings covering 7.1 innings. Prior to going under the knife last season, Kinley was a valuable setup man for Colorado, compiling a 0.75 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 27:6 K:BB in 24 innings.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Set to move rehab to High-A

    Kinley (elbow) is expected to move his rehab assignment from the rookie-level Arizona Complex League to High-A Spokane by the end of the upcoming week, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Kinley, who has been on the shelf all season while recovering from June 2022 flexor tendon surgery, rebounded nicely after giving up six earned runs while recording one out in his first rehab outing in the ACL on Tuesday. After two days of rest, Kinley returned to the hill Friday and delivered a scoreless inning. The right-hander will be re-examined in Denver this coming Thursday, and if all goes well, he'll head to Spokane. Kinley will likely make at least a couple appearances with Spokane before advancing to Triple-A Albuquerque, and then eventually rejoining the Colorado bullpen.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Nearing rehab assignment

    Kinley (elbow) is set to begin a rehab assignment next week in the Arizona Complex League, Patrick Lyons of reports.

    Kinley is a full 12 months removed from June 2022 surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his right elbow and should be an option for the Rockies' bullpen at some point in the second half of the 2023 campaign.

  • Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Throwing bullpen sessions

    Manager Bud Black said Thursday that Kinley (elbow) is continuing to throw bullpen sessions without issue, Patrick Lyons of reports.

    Kinley might soon be cleared to face live hitters for the first time since he required surgery last June to repair the flexor tendon in his right elbow. If all continues to go well, the 32-year-old could join the Rockies' bullpen sometime in July.
