Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Nets $7.35 from Diamondbacks
The Diamondbacks and Sewald avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.35 million contract Thursday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
It's Sewald's final year of arbitration eligibility, as he's currently slated to hit the free-agent market next offseason. The 33-year-old held a 3.12 ERA and 80:24 K:BB over 60.2 frames while notching 34 saves between the Mariners and Diamondbacks in 2023. With an unquestioned closer gig heading into 2024, Sewald's fantasy arrow is pointing up.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Secures sixth save of postseason
Sewald pitched a perfect inning to close out the game in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Phillies in Game 7 of the NLCS.
Sewald has yet to give up a run in the playoffs this year, putting together a dominant run of six saves in as many opportunities. The right-hander generated flyouts on all three outs as the Phillies were likely attempting to make any kind of contact to spare elimination. The 33-year-old closer will now have the opportunity to prepare for his first World Series. He has pitched to a 0.50 WHIP across eight scoreless innings with 11 strikeouts this postseason....

Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Secures first postseason win
Sewald allowed one walk in a scoreless inning to earn the win in Thursday's 2-1 victory over the Phillies in Game 3 of the NLCS. He struck out one.
Sewald was called into the tied game in the top of the ninth to hold things even for his offense, and he succeeded, with only a walk to Geraldo Perdomo spoiling his final line. Ketel Marte's walk-off hit in the ninth inning left Sewald with the first postseason win of his career, although he does have four saves so far this October. During that stretch, Sewald has pitched to a 0.60 WHIP across five scoreless innings with six strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Secures 32nd save
Sewald picked up the save in Saturday's win over the Cubs, allowing one unearned run on one hit over one inning. He did not record any strikeouts or walks.
Sewald entered the game with a two-run lead in the bottom of the 10th and retired the first two batters before giving up an RBI single to Cody Bellinger to cut the lead to one run. The right-hander then got Dansby Swanson to foul out for the final out of the game, giving Sewald his fourth save this month. He's now converted 11 of his last 12 save opportunities, though he's failed to record a strikeout in three straight appearances.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Records one-out save
Sewald retired the only batter he faced to register a save against the Cubs on Thursday.
Arizona led 6-1 heading into the bottom of the ninth frame, so it didn't look like Sewald would be needed. However, the Cubs scored a run on three hits to put the potential tying run in the on-deck circle with two outs, resulting in the closer getting the call. Sewald got Seiya Suzuki to ground out to end the contest and walk away with a save without needing to work up much of a sweat. It was Sewald's third save in September and his 31st overall this season.... See More ... See Less

Sewald allowed a run on one hit and a walk in one inning but still earned a save over the Rockies on Monday.
Sewald needed 26 pitches to finish off the win and pick up his 30th save of the year. Since joining the Diamondbacks, he's registered a 4.63 ERA, driving his season ERA to 3.29 through 54.2 frames. On the bright side, he's given up just three runs over his last 10.2 innings while converting nine of his last 10 save chances.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Secures save Friday
Sewald allowed a hit and struck out two over one scoreless inning to earn the save in Friday's 4-2 win over the Orioles.
Sewald had a couple of rough outings in August, but he's mostly been steady since he was acquired from the Mariners. The right-hander threw 16 pitches (11 strikes) in Friday's outing, his first action since a blown save last Saturday. For the season, he's 29-for-34 in save chances while posting a 3.19 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 74:21 K:BB through 53.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Blows save Saturday
Sewald gave up two runs on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning, taking a blown save in Saturday's 8-7 extra-innings loss to the Reds.
Sewald has mostly danced around danger effectively since he was traded from Seattle, but he couldn't do it Saturday. A Tyler Stephenson RBI double and a Matt McLain groundout produced the pair of runs on Sewald's line in his second blown save in nine chances with the Diamondbacks. He's now at a 3.25 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 72:21 K:BB through 52.2 innings on the year while converting 28 of 33 save chances.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Picks up 28th save
Sewald recorded a save against Cincinnati on Thursday, issuing one walk and striking out two batters over one scoreless inning.
Sewald came on in the top of the ninth frame with Arizona holding a tenuous one-run lead. He issued a free pass with one out but retired the next two batters to seal the deal. Sewald blew his first save opportunity with Arizona on Aug. 6 but has gone a perfect 7-for-7 since, posting eight scoreless innings and a 9:5 K:BB over that span.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Escapes trouble Tuesday
Sewald allowed two hits and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Rangers.
Sewald again flirted with danger, allowing multiple baserunners for the fourth time in nine outings since he joined the Diamondbacks. He's only paid for it once in a blown save versus the Twins on Aug. 6 -- he's kept runs off the board in his other eight appearances. Sewald is at a 3.00 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 70:19 K:BB with 27 saves in 31 chances over 51 innings this year. He'll need to cut back on the traffic on the basepaths to continue to turn in strong results as the Arizona closer.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Secures 26th save
Sewald recorded his 26th save of the season in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader sweep of the Padres, walking two batters in a scoreless ninth inning.
The outing was very nearly a disaster for the former Mariner. Sewald also hit Garrett Cooper with a pitch, loading the bases with two outs, but Juan Soto's drive to left-center field died on the warning track rather than clearing the fence for a walk-off grand slam. Sewald's converted five straight save chances after blowing his first one for Arizona following his acquisition at the trade deadline, but he's been far from impressive for his new club with a 4.50 ERA, 1.83 WHIP and 8:4 K:BB through six innings. Barring a complete collapse, however, his spot in the ninth inning appears secure.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Unavailable for save
Sewald was not available to pitch Thursday when Justin Martinez notched the save in a 3-1 win over San Diego.
Neither Sewald nor Kevin Ginkel were available to close things out for the Diamondbacks, so manager Torey Lovullo had Martinez get the final four outs. Sewald and Ginkel had each pitched four times in the prior five days.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Strikes out two for 25th save

The veteran reliever has now converted each of his last four save opportunities, racking up five strikeouts to only one walk over that scoreless stretch. He has, however, allowed a total of four hits over his last two appearances.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Escapes with save
Sewald picked up the save in Tuesday's 8-5 win over the Rockies. He allowed three hits and struck out one over a scoreless inning.
Though Sewald got himself into a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the ninth, he managed to retire Charlie Blackmon and Ezequiel Tovar to cap off his third save as a Diamondback and the 24th of the 2023 campaign. After being rocked for three runs and two home runs in his first appearance with Arizona, Sewald has bounced back with three straight scoreless innings and has converted on all three save attempts during that span. On the year, Sewald owns a 3.26 ERA and a 66:16 K:BB through 47 innings.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Second save in as many days
Sewald walked one and struck out one in a scoreless and hitless inning to earn the save in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Padres.
After picking up just two appearances -- and blowing a save chance in one of them -- Sewald pitched on consecutive days to earn a pair of saves this weekend. The right-hander is 23-for-27 in save chances between Arizona and Seattle this year, though the Diamondbacks' poor play of late has limited his opportunities to close out games with his new team. He's at a 3.33 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 65:16 K:BB through 46 innings overall.... See More ... See Less
