  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Named as candidate for saves

    Marlins manager Skip Schumaker mentioned Scott, A.J. Puk and Dylan Floro as being "in the mix" for closing situations to begin the season, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Both Scott and Floro have a similar amount of closing experience at the MLB level, while Puk, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2016 First-Year Player Draft, may profile as the most talented arm in the bullpen if he can enjoy the sustained run of health that has thus far eluded him in his professional career. The fact that Schumaker is a first-year manager makes it even more difficult to predict whether he'll end up setting on one of the aforementioned three pitchers or someone else to see the bulk of the save chances, or if he'll take a loose committee approach to the ninth inning for the balance of the campaign. Scott brings immense strikeout upside to the table and is fine to take a dart throw on late in drafts or pick up off the waiver wire with the hope that he falls into save chances, but his career-long control issues -- his 15.9 percent walk rate last season was the worst among all relievers who pitched at least 50 innings -- make it hard to envision him locking down the closing gig for the entirety of the campaign.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Perfect in spring debut

    Scott (biceps) struck out one over a perfect inning of relief in Friday's 7-2 win over the Nationals in Grapefruit League play.

    The 28-year-old southpaw made his spring debut over the weekend after a bout with left biceps discomfort prompted the Marlins to slow down his throwing progression earlier in camp. Scott looked plenty healthy in his outing against Washington, retiring the side with ease while generating two groundballs in addition to punching out a batter. Assuming he avoids any setbacks heading into Opening Day, Scott should be part of the Marlins' late-inning picture and could even find himself in the mix for saves, given that manager Skip Schumaker has yet to name a designated closer.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Throws live BP

    Scott (biceps) threw live batting practice Tuesday in Marlins camp, Christina De Nicola of reports.

    If he arrives back in camp Wednesday without any renewed discomfort, Scott should be cleared to make his Grapefruit League debut this Friday. He's been eased along so far at spring training because of minor discomfort in his left biceps, but it's looking like the 28-year-old high-leverage reliever is on track for Opening Day.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Resumes mound work

    Scott (biceps) resumed throwing off a mound Friday, Christina De Nicola of reports.

    Scott has been slowed by some discomfort in his left biceps but has apparently made some progress of late. He should be cleared for game action soon and could get in enough work to be ready for Opening Day. Scott is expected to be part of the Marlins' closer-by-committee approach in 2023.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Experiencing biceps discomfort

    Scott has been experiencing minor biceps discomfort, Christina De Nicola of reports.

    Scott is scheduled to test the issue with a round of catch Tuesday in Marlins camp. For now, it doesn't seem to be anything overly concerning. The 28-year-old left-hander is in line to handle at least some share of the save opportunities in Miami this season, assuming his health cooperates.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Still in mix for saves

    Marlins manager Skip Schumaker indicated Wednesday he doesn't plan on using a traditional closer and will instead play matchups with Scott and the team's other high-leverage options, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports. "Our best guys are going to be against their best hitters," Schumaker said.

    The veteran lefty led the Marlins with 20 saves last season, but control issues cost Scott the closing job down the stretch and allowed Dylan Floro to reclaim the ninth-inning role. Those two, along with newcomers Matt Barnes and A.J. Puk, figure to be in the mix for late-inning work, with Steven Okert (triceps) and JT Chargois potentially options as well. Given the sheer number of viable arms at the manager's disposal, there may not end up being one consistent save source on the Marlins this season, but plenty of fantasy value in formats that count holds as well.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Reaches deal with Miami

    Scott agreed to a $2.825 million contract with the Marlins on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The 28-year-old led the Marlins with 20 saves last season, but he struggled during the second half while Dylan Floro finished the campaign as the primary closer. Scott finished with a 4.31 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 90:46 K:BB across 62.2 innings and is likely to open 2023 in a setup role.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Earns 20th save

    Scott picked up the save Sunday in Milwaukee, striking out two and walking one in a scoreless 12th inning in a 4-3 extra-innings victory.

    Scott allowed a one-out walk before retiring the last two batters to earn his 20th save of the season. Dylan Floro blew a save in the ninth, resulting in Scott being given the chance to convert his first save since Aug. 23. It's been a difficult second half for the 28-year-old as he has a 5.09 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 33:19 K:BB in 23 innings across 24 outings. Floro will likely be called upon first in any remaining save opportunities.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Blows sixth save

    Scott gave up two runs on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning Friday to blow his sixth save of the season in a 10-6 extra-inning loss to the Dodgers.

    Getting the call to protect a 4-3 lead in the top of the ninth inning, Scott instead handed the lead over to Los Angeles, and he was only saved from his sixth loss of the year when Peyton Burdick homered to tie things back up in the bottom of the frame. Scott is 7-for-9 on save chances since the All-Star break, but that comes with a 5.93 ERA, 2.05 WHIP and volatile 15:11 K:BB through 13.2 innings.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Converts save Tuesday

    Scott allowed a hit and allowed two inherited runners to score in two-thirds of an inning, securing the save in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Athletics.

    Cole Sulser began the ninth inning with a five-run lead, but he recorded only one out. Scott had some trouble cleaning up the mess but ultimately closed it out for his 19th save of the season. The 28-year-old southpaw is now 19-for-24 in save chances this season while logging a 4.26 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 70:35 K:BB through 50.2 innings. He's been charged with three runs in eight innings across eight appearances in August.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Records 18th save

    Scott allowed one hit and struck out one batter over one inning Monday to earn a save over the Athletics.

    Edward Cabrera tossed another scoreless outing for Miami, and he turned the ball over to Scott with the Marlins leading by three runs in the ninth. The closer gave up a one-out single to Sean Murphy but didn't really face much stress in registering the save. Scott is prone to the occasional blowup, but he's been pretty good of late, succeeding on six of his past seven save chances and striking out 12 batters over 9.1 innings during that stretch. However, he's also walked seven hitters during that period, highlighting the most significant flaw in his game this season.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Picks up save

    Scott allowed one hit and a walk in a scoreless inning and earned a save over the Padres on Monday.

    One day after being tagged with three runs in a loss, Scott was thrust right back into a save situation Monday. He found himself in a two-out jam but escaped with his 17th save of the year. Over his last four outings, Scott has given up seven hits and five walks across just 4.1 frames but he's converted three out of those four save chances.

  • Marlins' Tanner Scott: Blows save, takes loss

    Scott (4-5) allowed three runs on three hits and three walks in one inning Sunday against Atlanta. He blew the save opportunity and took the loss.

    Scott blew the save on the very first pitch he threw, serving up a game-tying shot to Michael Harris to begin the ninth. The 28-year-old southpaw then gave up two more runs and took his fifth loss of the year. It was his first blown save sine July 13 and the first time he's given up more than two runs in an outing since June 15. Scott is now sporting a 67:34 K:BB and a 4.60 ERA through 47 innings.
