Diamondbacks | Tyler Clippard falters in ninth

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 19:57:31 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Jake Barrett recorded the final two outs to pick up the save against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, July 17, after RP Tyler Clippard recorded just one out and allowed three runs on two hits.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard failed to seal the deal in his first save chance since Brad Ziegler was traded away. Of course, Daniel Hudson didn't do much better, allowing two runs in the eighth inning. Hang on to Clippard for the time being, but the closing situation could become messy in Arizona.

Diamondbacks | Two starters off limits

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 05:00:53 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin and SP Robbie Ray will not be dealt prior to the trade deadline, but RP Daniel Hudson and RP Tyler Clippard could be shipped out.

Fantasy Tip: It appears the timing on this has to do more with when they are free agents. Since Hudson and Clippard are up first (this offseason and after 2017, respectively) it makes sense. Corbin and Ray have identical 4-8 records and don't carry much value at the moment, but future seasons could be different. Right now, these pitchers are more likely to be stashed in deeper NL and mixed leagues.

Diamondbacks | Tyler Clippard could close for now

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 10:11:51 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Tyler Clippard is expected to get the first crack at closing games for the team following the trade of RP Brad Ziegler to the Boston Red Sox. RP Daniel Hudson was also under consideration for the role but he is currently on the bereavement list.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard is 2-3 with a 3.06 ERA through 35 games this season, with 10 walks and 39 strikeouts over 32 1/3 innings. The 31-year-old right-hander has one save in 2016 and 54 for his career, including 32 saves for the Washington Nationals in 2012. Hudson, who also has one save this year, will continue in a setup role when he rejoins the club. Both pitchers should be owned in NL-only fantasy leagues and rostered in mixed leagues by owners who are desperate for saves.

Diamondbacks | Brad Ziegler still the closer

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 16:17:10 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Brad Ziegler remains the team's closer after Arizona signed RP Tyler Clippard, according to general manager Dave Stewart.

Fantasy Tip: Ziegler earned the role of closer after shutting down 30 games in 2015. However, he doesn't have typical closer stuff (4.8 strikeouts per nine), and any early season falter could throw Clippard or Daniel Hudson into the job. Clippard is the better speculative pick in deep mixed or NL-only leagues, as he has 53 career saves himself.

Diamondbacks | Tyler Clippard joining D-backs

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 12:42:15 -0800

The Arizona Diamondbacks agreed with free-agent RP Tyler Clippard (Mets) on a two-year, $12.25 million deal Monday, Feb. 8. He'll receive a $4 million signing bonus, $4.1 million in 2016 and $4.15 million in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Brad Ziegler will enter as Arizona's ninth-inning reliever after taking over the role last year. But his skills aren't typical for a power reliever closing out games, and if he falters, Clippard or Daniel Hudson could be in line to steal the job.

Diamondbacks | Tyler Clippard coming to Arizona?

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 11:41:03 -0800

Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said the team is hopeful of getting a deal done to add free-agent RP Tyler Clippard (Mets).

Fantasy Tip: Brad Ziegler already opens the season on shaky ground as Arizona's closer despite ending the season in the role. He has skills atypical for a ninth-inning reliever. If Clippard joins the back end of the bullpen, he'd be a dark horse candidate to watch to usurp the role if Ziegler falters early in the year.

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 11:41:20 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Clippard is a solid ratios reliever to snag late in drafts.

Diamondbacks | Tyler Clippard an option for D-Backs?

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 11:28:42 -0800

Free-agent RP Tyler Clippard (Mets) could become an option for the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to general manager Dave Stewart.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard slumped down the stretch last season, but he's still a solid fantasy reliever for ratios.

Marlins | Miami not interested in Tyler Clippard

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 14:45:57 -0800

The Miami Marlins have not shown any interest in free-agent RP Tyler Clippard (Mets).

Fantasy Tip: Clippard was moved to a setup role after being acquired by the New York Mets last year, where he had just two saves. Most teams have their closer picture cleared up right now, so he's unlikely to have much fantasy fantasy value, but stay tuned.

Mets | Jeurys Familia, Tyler Clippard unavailable

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 16:06:21 -0700

New York Mets RPs Jeurys Familia and Tyler Clippard are unavailable against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, Sept. 10, because of heavy usage this week. RP Addison Reed could be used in a save situation Thursday as a result.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much to see here. Don't freak out if you own Familia and he isn't in there tonight if a save situation arises. He recorded the save in each of the last three nights in the series sweep of the Washington Nationals, throwing a combined three innings and fanning five.
