  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Settles with Dodgers

    Graterol signed a one-year, $2.7 million contract with the Dodgers on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Graterol is in his second year of arbitration and doubled his salary from 2023. He posted a career-high 67.1 innings last season and maintained a 1.20 ERA and 0.97 WHIP with a 48:12 K:BB across 67.1 innings. Graterol could enter the closer picture in 2024, though Evan Phillips will open the year as the favorite for save chances.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Grabs seventh save

    Graterol allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one over a scoreless inning to earn the save in Sunday's 3-1 win over Atlanta.

    Graterol allowed multiple baserunners for the third time in his last six outings, but he was able to extend his scoreless streak to 16.1 innings. Both Graterol and Evan Phillips pitched Saturday, so this appears to be a managerial choice from Dave Roberts to give Graterol the ninth inning in this contest. The right-hander has a 1.38 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 43:11 K:BB with seven saves and 17 holds through 58.2 innings this year while operating as part of the Dodgers' successful high-leverage mix.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Secures 17th hold

    Graterol earned a hold over the Red Sox on Friday, allowing two hits and striking out two batters over 1.2 scoreless innings.

    Graterol has picked up two saves since Aug. 10, but he remains a secondary closing option for Los Angeles behind Evan Phillips. Graterol has emerged as a shutdown high-leverage weapon for manager Dave Roberts, racking up 12 straight scoreless appearances and yielding just one run over 25.2 innings since June 21. The fireballing right-hander has just 17 strikeouts during that span, but he's posted a 0.90 WHIP and notched two wins, three saves and 10 holds. Phillips has also been solid and is in no danger of losing his closing job, so Graterol's fantasy value is mostly limited to leagues that count holds, though he could pick up a few more saves down the stretch.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Nabs sixth save

    Graterol allowed two hits in a scoreless inning to earn the save in a 3-1 win over the Marlins in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Evan Phillips was called on for a save in the matinee, allowing Graterol a chance to close out the nightcap. This was Graterol's 10th straight scoreless outing, and he's allowed just one run across 19 innings dating back to June 27. The right-hander also has two saves in his last four appearances after going six weeks between save chances. For the season, Graterol has six saves, 16 holds, a 1.53 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 38:9 K:BB through 53 innings as a strong late-inning presence, though Phillips is still the favorite to close for the Dodgers.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Grabs save Thursday

    Graterol earned a save against the Rockies on Thursday, striking out one batter in a perfect inning.

    Evan Phillips has emerged as the Dodgers' primary closer this season, but he wasn't deployed Thursday after pitching each of the previous two days. Manager Dave Roberts instead turned to Graterol to close things out with Los Angeles clinging to a one-run ninth-inning lead, and the right-hander did so with ease, retiring the side in order on 13 pitches. Graterol has been outstanding as mostly a setup man this season, posting a 1.62 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 37:9 K:BB over 50 frames while collecting 14 holds and five saves.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Pitches on consecutive days

    Graterol earned a hold against the Angels on Friday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter in a scoreless inning.

    Early in the week, Graterol was nursing an arm issue that kept him out a few days and reportedly resulted in the Dodgers considering placing him on the injured list. However, the righty reliever returned to action with a hold in a scoreless frame Thursday and did the same Friday, so it's now clear that the injury was minor. Graterol has been a key part of Los Angeles' bullpen this year, notching 10 holds and four saves while compiling a 1.85 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 29:6 K:BB over 39.0 innings.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Avoids injured list

    Graterol will avoid the injured list after suffering from an arm issue earlier in the week, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Graterol has been unavailable for the last few days and there was some fear he'd be forced to the injured list. However, he threw prior to Thursday's game against the Pirates and was cleared for game action. With Daniel Hudson (knee) out for the long term, Graterol could be in line for a share of the Dodgers' saves along with Evan Phillips.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Nursing arm issue

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Wednesday's win over the Pirates that Graterol has been unavailable the last couple days due to an arm issue, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The specifics of the injury aren't available at this time. The team will check on Graterol on Thursday to see if he can be available. If he can't, he could be placed on the injured list. Graterol has notched four saves for the Dodgers this season as one of their primary late-inning relief weapons.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Picks up fourth save

    Graterol picked up the save Friday against Houston. He tossed a perfect inning with no strikeouts.

    Graterol continues his career year, as his 2.18 ERA will be his best mark by far if he can end the season around that number. The right-hander's four saves are already tied for the most he's had in a season as well. The veteran is also red-hot as of late, as he's coughed up earned runs in just two of his last 19 appearances.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Tosses two scoreless innings

    Graterol walked one and struck out three over two scoreless and hitless innings as the opener in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Angels. He did not factor in the decision.

    Michael Grove was initially expected to serve as a bulk reliever, but the Dodgers changed plans on the fly to make this a full-blown bullpen game. Graterol's role as the opener this time kept him out of the running for the win, but he was strong while matching his longest outing of the season. The right-hander had given up seven runs (three earned) over his previous 7.1 innings. For the season, he has a 2.25 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 27:4 K:BB through 32 innings while frequently filling a late-inning role.

  • Dodgers' Brusdar Graterol: Serving as opener Wednesday

    Graterol will serve as the Dodgers' opener Wednesday versus the Angels, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Michael Grove was expected to get the start, but he'll instead operate in bulk relief. This will be the first opener assignment of the year for Graterol, who has pitched to an excellent 2.40 ERA and 24:3 K:BB in 30 innings (32 appearances) out of the Dodgers' bullpen.
