Closer Monkey:

Oakland A’s — Dany Jimenez looked great Thursday in his first game back from the IL, striking out the side in the eighth inning. Zach Jackson had some trouble in the ninth, giving up a home run and a walk before A.J. Puk entered to retire Shohei Ohtani for his third save. Jackson’s hold at the top of the committee is rather tenuous, and if Jimenez continues to look this good, a switch could be coming. 

Hierarchy remains: *Jackson | Jimenez | Puk.
* = closer-by-committee

How quickly those divisions change. While we duke it out for the 3'rd-thru-8'th spots, Don Drooker is looking at adding another title to his mantle, in this his final year.

We may be tied for last with two saves in the XFL, but as you see, Tim and Josh Paley are in the second division, Peter and I are in the first.

We've activated Wick to take the place of Otto, Tim. As soon as Junis is on the IL, we'll activate Montero. Wave good-bye!

I was so hoping that Puk was available in the XFL for our last monthly draft to provide some Jimenez insurance. Derek Van Riper spoiled that plan. So there we sit, Alex. Tied with two saves each......

Tim and I both are counting on Puk to get the puck in the ninth inning. So, probably, is the Monkey.

If losing ten in a row, half of them (it feels like) in the 9th inning, what does?

Closer Monkey:

Oakland A’s — Dany Jimenez had another rough outing last night. Entering the 9th with a 2 run lead, he gave up a leadoff homer, followed by a walk, a double, an intentional pass to load the bases and a sac fly to give up the tying run. Sam Moll tried to put out the fire, but another sac fly later and Jimenez was on the hook for the A’s 10th straight loss. This has been part of a bad run for Jimenez, who has seen his ERA rise from 0.49 to 4.91 just over the past 2 weeks. The only thing keeping him secure in the closers role for now is that nobody in the A’s bullpen is pitching particularly well. Even so, if you’re depending on Oakland for saves it may be time to buy up some insurance in the form of A.J. Puk. 

Hierarchy remains: Jimenez | Puk | Jackson

Sure, he pitched badly, he lost the game, but if you're in a holds league...

Stuck with loss Wednesday
June 2, 2022
Jimenez (2-3) recorded a hold but took the loss Wednesday, coughing up four runs on two hits and two walks in only two-thirds of an inning as the A's fell 5-4 to the Astros. He struck out two.
The right-hander got the final out of the eighth inning with Oakland protecting a 3-1 lead, but Jimenez unraveled in the ninth, walking in one run before serving up a bases-loaded double to Yordan Alvarez. Jimenez has been tagged for eight runs over his last three appearances, sending his ERA soaring from 0.49 to 3.92, but the fact that no other Oakland reliever is pitching particularly well at the moment should buy him some extra time to turn things around and hang onto the closer role.

Oakland A’s — Lou Trivino was been placed on the COVID IL before Monday’s game, and Dany Jimenez had an eventful, but ultimately scoreless 9th inning in his stead. He was preceded by Justin Grimm in the 8th and Domingo Acevedo in the 7th — and that’s how we’ll line them up while Trivino is out, with the understanding (and, perhaps, expectation) that the A’s could take a committee approach in Trivino’s absence.

Updated hierarchy: *Jimenez | Grimm | Acevedo.
* = closer-by-committee.

Stats should come with tomorrow's feed.

Oakland A’s — Score one for the Vulture Save Watch, sort of. Lou Trivino did not pitch Thursday after going in three of his previous four. So, the save chance went to Dany Jimenez, who retired the side for the first save of his career. Domingo Acevedo came into the game in the seventh inning with the bases empty and a three-run lead, while A.J. Puk got the eighth. The usage is interesting, but we’ll keep the hierarchy like we have it for now. Still, though, more looks could be in store for Jimenez, who was “emotional” and “surprised” after getting and converting the save chance. Congrats!

Hierarchy remains: Trivino | Acevedo | Puk.
