  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Grabs first save

    Jimenez earned the save in Saturday's 11-9 win over Atlanta, allowing one hit while logging a strikeout in the ninth inning.

    Atlanta made things interesting after Matt Olson led off the ninth with a double. However, Jimenez, making his first appearance in the majors following his demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas in early May, was able to set down the next three batters in order, earning his first save of the campaign. Mason Miller, the A's regular closer, was likely unavailable Saturday after pitching two innings Thursday. However, Jimenez could find himself slotted back into a high-leverage role due to Lucas Erceg (forearm) being placed on the IL. Overall, the 30-year-old Jimenez sports a 3.45 ERA with a 1.47 WHIP and 12:13 K:BB across 15.2 innings this year.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Recalled Friday

    Jimenez was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas by Oakland on Friday.

    Jimenez will rejoin the Athletics just a month after being sent down to the team's Triple-A affiliate. The 30-year-old righty has appeared in 15 games with Oakland this year, recording a 3.68 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 14.2 innings.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Effective since demotion

    Jimenez, who was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, fired two perfect innings with four strikeouts over his first two relief appearances with the Aviators on Friday and Sunday. He also recorded a save in the latter outing.

    It's a small sample, but the decision to demote Jimenez after a couple of uneven outings earlier in May appears to have been a prudent one. The right-hander has breezed through his first pair of minor-league appearances, and if he continues on a similar track, Jimenez could soon find himself back on the big-league roster.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Sent to minors

    The Athletics optioned Jimenez to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

    The right-hander began the season in a high-leverage role and didn't give up an earned run in his first five appearances, but he has a 5.40 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 9:8 K:BB over his past 10 innings. Six of those walks came in Jimenez's past four outings, and he'll head to Triple-A to work on his command.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Falters again Tuesday

    Jimenez (1-1) was charged with a loss and a blown save against the Cardinals on Tuesday, allowing two earned runs on a hit and two walks over one-third of an inning.

    Jimenez was entrusted with preserving a 2-1 lead when he entered in the sixth inning, but he immediately worked himself into trouble by allowing the first three hitters he faced to reach safely via a single and a pair of walks. Jimenez would go on to surrender back-to-back RBI sacrifice flies to allow the Cardinals to pull ahead by a run, which would prove the final margin of victory. The normally reliable right-hander has been a bit more vulnerable than usual of late, being saddled with blown saves in two of his last three outings while giving up a total of three runs on four hits over 2.2 innings in that span.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Blows save against Washington

    Jimenez blew the save Friday against the Nationals. He allowed one run on two hits and no walks with two strikeouts in one inning.

    After Mason Miller collected saves in two of the three previous games, Oakland manager Mark Kotsay called upon Jimenez for the save opportunity Friday night. It didn't take long for Kotsay to regret that decision as the 30-year-old reliever allowed a solo home run to his first batter faced, Jesse Winker. Jimenez's performance in Friday's save situation only further solidifies Mason Miller's grip on the Athletics' closer role.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Gets ninth-inning opportunity

    Jimenez (1-0) picked up the win Sunday against Cleveland, giving up one hit and one walk in one scoreless inning. He didn't log a strikeout.

    Jimenez was in contention for the closing role throughout the spring, but it appeared as though Mason Miller would be the first to get high-leverage ninth-inning duties. However, after Miller gave up two runs in one inning of work Saturday, Jimenez was handed the ball Sunday and took the A's home for their first win of the campaign. Considering the fluid closing situation and the lack of overall save chances, fantasy managers should be hesitant to rely upon any of Oakland's arms for save production.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Only one hiccup this spring

    Jimenez, who fired a scoreless sixth inning Thursday against the Cubs during which he recorded two strikeouts, owns a 3.18 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB across 5.2 innings over six Cactus League appearances this spring.

    The right-hander hasn't been scored upon in five of his exhibition outings, only slipping up against the Brewers last Friday by allowing three runs (two earned) on two hits and a walk over one inning. Jimenez has garnered three wins, 12 saves and 11 holds across 59 appearances over the last two seasons with the Athletics, despite dealing with some injuries over that span. If he remains healthy, the 30-year-old should be in line for a heavy workload, one that could include more save opportunities than he's seen previously, as manager Mark Kotsay has indicated that Mason Miller will be eased gradually into closing duties.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Most experienced closing candidate

    Jimenez is viewed by A's general manager David Forst as the most experienced late-inning candidate vying for the team's closer role this spring, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Jimenez will enter 2024 with 61 major-league appearances, which have encompassed 59 innings. The right-hander has converted 12 of 16 save chances and also recorded 11 holds in that span, generating a solid 3.43 ERA and 1.14 WHIP overall in the process. Forst adds that journeyman Trevor Gott, who signed a one-year deal in December, is also under consideration for some ninth-inning opportunities, while Mason Miller, who's worked almost exclusively as a starter in his three-year professional career thus far, is considered to have excellent stuff for the role and therefore firmly in contention for it as well.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Takes second loss Wednesday

    Jimenez (0-2) took the loss against the Twins on Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on three hits and a wild pitch over one inning.

    Jimenez wasn't up to the task of preserving the 4-4 tie he inherited when entering in the eighth, allowing Max Kepler and Trevor Larnach to reach safely via a single and double, respectively, to lead off the frame, before advancing the latter to third on a wild pitch and then allowing him to cross the plate via Ryan Jeffers' run-scoring sacrifice fly. The right-hander's stumble snapped an extended stretch of strong performances for Jimenez, who'd generated scoreless appearances in 13 of his previous 14 trips to the mound, including six straight.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Opening Tuesday's contest

    Jimenez will serve as the Athletics' opening pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Royals, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    He'll be making his first career start, but Jimenez is unlikely to cover more than two innings before turning the game over to Hogan Harris, who is expected to be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to serve as the Athletics' bulk reliever. Jimenez recently returned from an extended stay on the injured list due to a strained shoulder and has tossed 1.1 innings, giving up two earned runs over his first two appearances since being reinstated.

  • Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Back with big club

    The Athletics recalled Jimenez from Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday.

    Jimenez saved 11 games for Oakland a season ago, but he's struggled to return to form in 2023 after suffering a strained right shoulder in mid-April that cost him significant time. He was activated from the 60-day injured list earlier this month but made just one appearance out of the big-league bullpen before he was optioned to Las Vegas. Since reporting to Triple-A, Jimenez has looked much sharper, striking out nine over 4.1 no-hit innings across four appearances to earn the call back to Oakland. Trevor May looks to have solidified himself as Oakland's closer for the moment, but Jimenez could quickly rise up the depth chart and emerge as a key setup man.
