  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Set to earn $1.6 million in 2024

    Hentges signed a one-year, $1.6 million contract with the Guardians on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Hentges broke out in 2022 after shifting to a full-time relief role. He took a moderate step back in 2023 by posting a 3.61 ERA and 1.36 WHIP across 52.1 innings, but he still managed a 17 percent K-BB%. After recording 15 holds last season, Hentges should have the chance to serve in a high-leverage role once again in 2024.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Collects extra-innings win

    Hentges (3-2) allowed an unearned run on one hit over one inning to earn the extra-innings win over the Rays on Saturday. Hentges allowed a run to score on a sacrifice fly, but the Guardians rallied back for two runs in the bottom of the 11th inning to earn him the win. The unearned run Saturday is the only run he's given up over his last 15 innings, a span in which he has a 19:4 K:BB and two holds. For the season, Hentges has a 4.32 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 44:16 K:BB through 41.2 innings with 10 holds and two blown saves. While he's been sharp lately, the Guardians' waiver claims from the Angels make the back end of Cleveland's bullpen quite crowded, so Hentges may be seen more often in middle-relief assignments.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Picks up second win

    Hentges (2-2) struck out the side in a perfect inning to earn the win Tuesday over the Dodgers. Hentges has quietly gotten his season back on track with a 9.2-inning scoreless streak, during which he's posted a 13:3 K:BB while allowing 11 hits and collecting two holds. The southpaw worked the top of the seventh inning Tuesday, and the Guardians rallied ahead a half-inning later. He's now at a 4.95 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 38:15 K:BB with 10 holds and two blown saves over 36.1 innings. With Emmanuel Clase and Trevor Stephan holding down late-inning roles, Hentges is unlikely to see consistent setup work.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Struggles, takes loss Wednesday

    Hentges (1-2) allowed four runs on three hits and a walk in one-third of an inning to take the loss Wednesday versus the Pirates. Hentges entered with one on and one out, but the Pirates were able to rally against him. This was the fourth time in eight appearances in July that he's allowed multiple runs. The rough stretch has inflated his ERA to 6.31 with a 1.44 WHIP and 23:12 K:BB over 25.2 innings this season. While he's collected eight holds this season, Hentges may be kept away from high-leverage situations while he's struggling.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Handed first loss

    Hentges (1-1) took the loss Friday versus the Rangers. He failed to record an out while allowing three runs on two hits and a walk. Hentges was tasked with protecting a one-run lead in the seventh inning but instead created a mess that saw the Guardians trailing by four by the end of the frame. The southpaw has yet to have an outing in which he's allowed a single run -- he's given up multiple runs seven times, including in each of his last three appearances, while adding 18 scoreless outings. He's at a 5.40 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 22:11 K:BB with eight holds through 23.1 innings this season.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Awarded win Sunday

    Hentges (1-0) struck out two over a perfect inning to earn the extra-inning win over the Cubs on Sunday. Hentges' usage in the 10th inning would typically be scored as a save, but the official scorer credited him with the win rather than Emmanuel Clase, who allowed four runs in the ninth. Hentges picked up seven holds over his first 12 appearances, but a shaky stretch in June has seen him receive less high-leverage work lately. He's pitched to a 2.91 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 20:8 K:BB through 21.2 innings.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Activated from injured list

    Hentges was activated from the 15-day injured list Friday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Hentges will join the Guardians' bullpen Friday night against the Twins after missing the first five weeks of the 2023 regular season due to shoulder inflammation. The 26-year-old lefty broke out to the tune of a 2.32 ERA and 72:19 K:BB over 62 innings of relief with Cleveland in 2022.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Likely to be activated Friday

    The Guardians are expected to activate Hentges (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list ahead of Friday's series opener with the Twins, MLB.com reports. Hentges has been on the shelf all season with left shoulder inflammation, but he looks ready to make his 2023 debut for the Guardians after recently completing a two-week rehab assignment. Between two appearances at Double-A Akron and three at Triple-A Columbus, Hentges covered 4.2 innings and allowed one earned run on five hits and two walks while striking out four. Once activated from the IL, Hentges should serve as a key left-handed setup option in front of closer Emmanuel Clase.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Put on 15-day injured list

    The Guardians placed Hentges (shoulder) on the 15-day injured list Thursday. Hentges is making progress but will still be a ways away from making his 2023 debut. When healthy, he should be used in a high-leverage role in the Guardians' bullpen.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Battling shoulder inflammation

    Guardians manager Terry Francona said Wednesday that Hentges is dealing with left shoulder inflammation and will be re-evaluated on a week-to-week basis, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Hentges was a strong performer for the Cleveland bullpen in 2023, finishing with a 2.32 ERA and 72:19 K:BB over 62 innings in 57 appearances. The Guardians should have a clearer idea regarding his availability for the start of the season within the next couple of issues, but it's not the most encouraging sign that he's being listed as week-to-week rather than day-to-day.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Picks up first save

    Hentges struck out two batters over 2.1 perfect innings and earned a save over Minnesota on Monday. Hentges needed just 20 pitches to quickly retire all seven batters he faced in Monday's blowout win. The 26-year-old lefty has fired 10.2 consecutive scoreless frames while posting a 14:1 K:BB. He lowered his season ERA to 2.51 with a 66:17 K:BB through 52 appearances. Hentges saw his first saw chance of the year Monday and likely won't see many more down the stretch.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Tosses two hitless innings

    Hentges walked one and struck out one over two scoreless innings during Friday's 6-1 loss to the Mariners. Hentges saw a 13.1-inning scoreless streak end Wednesday versus Baltimore, but he was right back at it Friday. The southpaw has impressed as a reliever this year, logging a 2.96 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 53:16 K:BB across 48.2 innings while adding a 3-2 record and two holds. Despite his development as a starter previously, it's unclear if he's in contention to stretch out late in the year after starters Zach Plesac (hand) and Aaron Civale (forearm) were placed on the injured list Friday. Cody Morris, who made his major-league debut as Friday's starter, also pitched two innings, surrendering three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Secures win in extra innings

    Hentges (3-2) pitched a perfect 11th inning with one strikeout to earn the win Monday over the Diamondbacks. Hentges extended his scoreless streak to 5.2 innings over his last five appearances with the clean frame, and Amed Rosario hit a walkoff single for the win. After a rough stretch in late June and early July, Hentges appears to have gotten himself back on track. He owns a 3.55 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 41:14 K:BB in 38 innings as a middle reliever this year.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Falters again Wednesday

    Hentges (2-2) allowed two runs on three hits and two walks with one strikeout in 1.2 innings, taking the loss Wednesday versus the White Sox. Hentges was responsible for both runs the White Sox scored in the sixth inning, and the Guardians' offense couldn't get him off the hook. He's been scored upon in seven of his last eight outings, making his strong first two months of the season a distant memory. The southpaw now has a mediocre 4.18 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 36:14 K:BB across 32.1 innings this year. All but four of the 15 runs he's allowed this year have come in his last 7.1 frames.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Handed first loss

    Hentges (2-1) allowed a run on two hits and struck out one in one-third of an inning, taking the loss Friday versus the Royals. Hentges gave up a double to Vinnie Pasquantino and a walkoff single to Michael Taylor. After allowing runs in three of his first 24 appearances, Hentges has given up eight runs in his last five innings across six outings. The southpaw has seen his ERA spike from 1.44 to 3.60 during this slump, and he owns a 1.13 WHIP and 34:11 K:BB in 30 innings overall. He's added one hold, but he'll likely remain in a low-leverage role until he can get back on track.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Notches win Tuesday

    Hentges (2-0) picked up the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Twins. He allowed a run on one hit and struck out two in one inning. Hentges gave up a go-ahead solo home run to Carlos Correa in the top of the eighth inning, but the Guardians regained the lead in their half of the frame. This marked the second consecutive outing in which Hentges has given up a run, something he hadn't done all season. However, he's still sporting an impressive 2.33 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 31:7 K:BB in 27 innings. The southpaw's strong body of work could see him earn some high-leverage looks on a matchup basis, but he's picked up only one hold in 26 appearances.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Clean inning Saturday

    Hentges struck out one in a perfect inning in Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Dodgers. Hentges was the Guardians' most effective pitcher Saturday. He's given up runs in only three of his 21 appearances this season, and he's allowed multiple runs only once. That shakes out to a 1.64 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 27:4 K:BB with one hold in 22 innings, though he's yet to get a real taste of high-leverage assignments despite the solid overall numbers. He's also posted a 2.54 FIP, which indicates he might experience a little regression, but it's not likely to be severe.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Logs first hold

    Hentges walked two in one-third of a scoreless inning to earn a hold in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Orioles. Hentges has seen limited usage, making just four appearances since May 13. He's covered just 2.1 innings in those outings. The usage is puzzling, as the southpaw has been solid with a 1.10 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and 19:2 K:BB across 16.1 innings in 16 appearances. Hentges is likely ticketed for low-leverage work, and it seems unlikely he'd be an option as a potential spot starter given that he hasn't logged more than three outs in an appearance since May 4.

  • Guardians' Sam Hentges: Resuming relief role this season

    Hentges will begin the 2022 season in the bullpen, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Not surprisingly, Hentges is on the outside looking in for a spot in the rotation. The southpaw struggled with a 6.68 ERA and 1.78 WHIP across 30 appearances last season, but he was more effective in relief than he was in his 12 starts. The 25-year-old should see mostly multi-inning assignments, and he could function as a piggyback to starters as they build up their pitch counts early in the season.

  • Indians' Sam Hentges: Pitching well in relief

    Hentges has allowed two runs in 6.1 innings since transitioning to a bullpen role. Hentges was at his best in Sunday's 11-1 win over the Yankees, striking out the side in the ninth inning to end the lopsided contest. The southpaw had little success as a starter this year, but he's been more effective in a low-leverage relief role. Overall, the 25-year-old has a 6.86 ERA, 1.81 WHIP and 63:30 K:BB through 63 innings across 26 outings (12 starts).
