Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Takes loss against Twins
Kinley (0-4) allowed one earned run on two hits while striking out one to take the loss Friday against the Twins.
Kinley entered the game in the ninth inning with the score knotted at 6-6. He allowed a pair of singles to begin the frame before ultimately allowing the game-winning run to score on a sacrifice fly. Despite maintaining an ugly 6.46 ERA and 1.70 WHIP across 15.1 innings this season, Kinley has earned three of Colorado's last four saves and is likely to be called upon if a save situation arises in the team's final two games....

Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Notches fifth save
Kinley recorded his fifth save of the season in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, giving up a hit and striking out one batter in a scoreless ninth inning.
All five of Kinley's saves have come in September, as the 32-year-old righty has fallen into the closer role after a number of other relievers spit the bit. He's been marginally effective, blowing only one of six save chances while being scored upon in two of nine appearances on the month, leaving him with a 4.15 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 7:4 K:BB over 8.2 innings. Depending on what reinforcements Colorado adds to its bullpen over the winter, Kinley could head into spring training next year as the favorite to retain the closing job.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Surrenders walk-off homer
Kinley (0-3) took the loss in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Padres. He allowed two runs on one hit and one walk while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning.
Kinley stepped into the game in the bottom of the ninth with the score 0-0 and managed to strike out two of the first three batters he faced. However, Xander Bogaerts tagged him for a two-run shot to walk it off for the Padres and give Kinley his third loss of 2023. Kinely has yielded mixed results over his last four outings, logging a pair of scoreless saves while giving up four total runs across his other two appearances, including a blown save and Tuesday's loss....

Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Picks up fourth save
Kinley earned a save against the Giants in the nightcap of a doubleheader Saturday, allowing two hits and one walk while striking out one batter over one scoreless inning.
Kinley got the call with the Rockies up three runs in the ninth inning and made things interesting, loading the bases on a pair of singles and a walk. However, he was able to get Blake Sabol to pop out to end the contest and nail down the save. Kinley has moved into the primary closer role for Colorado in September, notching four saves in five chances while allowing two runs on six hits and posting a 4:3 K:BB over seven frames....

Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Blows save chance Monday
Kinley (0-2) blew a save and took the loss against the Cubs on Monday, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk over one inning.
Kinley got the opportunity to notch his second save over his past three appearances, but he couldn't come through . The right-hander entered in the ninth inning trying to protect a one-run lead and quickly fell behind when each of the Cubs' first three batters reached base, with two of them scoring. To his credit, Kinley rebounded to retire the final three hitters he faced without allowing another run to cross, but that wasn't enough to prevent him from taking the loss. Kinley's recent save chances have come following a rough stretch by Justin Lawrence, who earned a hold with a scoreless 10th frame Monday. Lawrence hasn't allowed any runs over his past three outings and could still be in the closer mix, especially after Kinley's poor outing against Chicago.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Records second save
Kinley pitched a perfect inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks.
With two saves over three appearances in September, it appears Kinley has entered his name into the closer conversation for the Rockies. He's allowed just one walk over 2.1 innings this month while striking out two. The right-hander is at a 6.75 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB over eight innings for the season after recovering from June 2022 flexor tendon surgery. In addition to Kinley, Justin Lawrence is also in the mix for closing assignments.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Earns first save
Kinley struck out the only batter he faced to earn the save in Saturday's 8-7 win over the Blue Jays.
Kinley wasn't initially brought in for the save chance, but Justin Lawrence gave up two runs and left with the bases loaded. Kinley was able to strike out Spencer Horwitz to end the threat, earning his first save since 2019 in the process. This was Kinley's first appearance since Aug. 16 after a bout of elbow inflammation. The right-hander has a 9.00 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB through six innings this season. Despite Saturday's success, it's unlikely he sees many high-leverage opportunities under normal circumstances the rest of the way unless he continues to improve.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Activated Friday
The Rockies reinstated Kinley (elbow) from the 15-day injured list Friday, Kelsey Wingert-Linch of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.
Kinley spent over a year on the injured list to begin the season while rehabbing from flexor tendon surgery, but he ended up back on the IL on Aug. 20 with inflammation in the same elbow. Now that he's healthy again, he'll rejoin the Rockies' bullpen and look to improve upon his less-than-stellar 9.53 ERA and 2.12 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Set for rehab appearance Tuesday
Kinley (elbow) will make a rehab appearance with Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Kelsey Wingert-Linch of AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain reports.

Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Back on IL with elbow issue
The Rockies placed Kinley on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right elbow inflammation, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
After undergoing flexor tendon surgery last June, Kinley spent more than a year recovering and rehabbing before the Rockies brought him back from the 60-day injured list Aug. 1. Upon being activated, Kinley worked his way back into the setup ranks but largely struggled over his seven appearances, giving up six runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out eight over 5.2 innings. Now that Kinley is back on the IL with another injury in his surgically repaired elbow, the Rockies are likely to proceed cautiously with bringing him back. Colorado called up right-hander Tommy Doyle from Triple-A Albuquerque to replace Kinley in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Activated from 60-day IL
Colorado activated Kinley (elbow) from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.
Finally recovered from his June 2022 flexor tendon surgery, Kinley will join the Rockies bullpen ahead of Tuesday's game against the Padres. He got hammered in his first minor-league rehab appearance back in early July but rallied for a 3.68 ERA and 9:1 K:BB over his next seven outings covering 7.1 innings. Prior to going under the knife last season, Kinley was a valuable setup man for Colorado, compiling a 0.75 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 27:6 K:BB in 24 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Set to move rehab to High-A
Kinley (elbow) is expected to move his rehab assignment from the rookie-level Arizona Complex League to High-A Spokane by the end of the upcoming week, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Kinley, who has been on the shelf all season while recovering from June 2022 flexor tendon surgery, rebounded nicely after giving up six earned runs while recording one out in his first rehab outing in the ACL on Tuesday. After two days of rest, Kinley returned to the hill Friday and delivered a scoreless inning. The right-hander will be re-examined in Denver this coming Thursday, and if all goes well, he'll head to Spokane. Kinley will likely make at least a couple appearances with Spokane before advancing to Triple-A Albuquerque, and then eventually rejoining the Colorado bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Nearing rehab assignment
Kinley (elbow) is set to begin a rehab assignment next week in the Arizona Complex League, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
Kinley is a full 12 months removed from June 2022 surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his right elbow and should be an option for the Rockies' bullpen at some point in the second half of the 2023 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Throwing bullpen sessions
Manager Bud Black said Thursday that Kinley (elbow) is continuing to throw bullpen sessions without issue, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.

Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Graduates to mound work
Kinley (elbow) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, MLB.com reports.
The side session marked Kinley's first mound work since he underwent surgery last June to repair the flexor tendon in his right elbow. Though Kinley is said to be on track in his recovery from surgery, he's still likely to remain on the 60-day injured list for much of the first half of the season while he gradually builds up the intensity of his throwing workouts....

Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Beginning throwing program
Kinley (elbow) has begun throwing from 120 feet, MLB.com reports.
Kinley had season-ending surgery in late June of 2022 and is still recovering. He hopes to throw from a mound at some point in April before progressing to bullpen sessions. Despite the progression, Kinley is not expected back prior to the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Moves to IL
The Rockies placed Kinley (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Saturday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
July 2022 elbow surgery was already expected to sideline Kinley for the start of 2023. With a stellar 0.75 ERA and 10 holds in 24 innings last season, the righty showed he absolutely belongs in the Rockies' bullpen this year once healthy. The move frees up a 40-man roster spot for reliever Brad Hand, whom Colorado signed Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Re-signs with Rockies
Kinley (elbow) signed a three-year extension including a club option for 2026 with the Rockies on Friday.
Kinley was forced to miss the majority of 2022 after undergoing season-ending surgery on his right elbow in July. Prior to his surgery, he had recorded a 0.75 ERA and 1.13 WHIP through 24 innings, putting him on pace for what could've been by far the best season of his career. There's no hard timetable for his return in 2023, but it's likely he will miss at least the first few weeks of the season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Set for season-ending surgery
Kinley is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery in Dallas this week to repair the flexor tendon in his right elbow, Danielle Allentuck of the Denver Gazette reports.
The Rockies were initially fearful that Kinley's elbow injury would require the second Tommy John surgery of his career -- he previously had the operation in 2009 as a senior in high school -- but he'll instead opt for a less intensive arm procedure. According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, Kinley will still miss the remainder of the season, but because his upcoming procedure entails an 8-to-12-month recovery period, he'll have an outside shot at being available for the start of the 2023 campaign. Before the elbow injury surfaced, Kinley had been the Rockies' top reliever. He'll conclude the campaign with an 0.75 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 27:6 K:BB in 24 innings to go with one win and 10 holds....

Rockies' Tyler Kinley: Sent to 60-day IL
The Rockies transferred Kinley (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
The transaction is a procedural move, as Kinley was already expected to miss the remainder of the season after he was diagnosed Wednesday with a right elbow strain and a flexor tear. The Rockies haven't yet decided if Tommy John surgery is in the forecast for the right-hander, but he'll require months of rest and rehab even if he's able to forgo a procedure. Colorado reinstated infielder Garrett Hampson (illness) from the COVID-19-related injured list to fill Kinley's spot on the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
