  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Takes loss in sloppy eighth

    Ginkel (1-1) picked up the loss in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, allowing three runs (one earned) on two walks without retiring a batter.

    The Diamondbacks held a 5-1 lead entering the eighth inning, but it all melted away as Caleb Smith, Ginkel and Joe Mantiply couldn't hold it. Smith departed after ceding a two-run home run before Ginkel, who was victimized by Josh Rojas' fielding error and his inability to locate (14 pitches, five strikes). Mantiply entered a bases-loaded, none-out situation and couldn't prevent the winning runs from scoring. The back end of Arizona's bullpen has been shaky, so manager Torey Lovullo has been using relievers other than Mark Melancon and Ian Kennedy with mixed results.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Joins Arizona bullpen

    Ginkel was called up from Triple-A Reno on Monday.

    Ginkel earned his way onto Arizona's roster by posting a 1.17 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 45:12 K:BB in 30.2 innings over 30 relief appearances with Reno. Despite the stellar numbers, don't expect him to occupy a key spot in Arizona's bullpen out of the gate.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Pitching for Triple-A club

    Ginkel (elbow) has made two relief appearances for Triple-A Reno this season, covering two scoreless innings and striking out three while giving up one hit and no walks.

    Ginkel finished the 2021 campaign on the Diamondbacks' 60-day injured list with right elbow inflammation, but after he was activated and outrighted off the 40-man roster in November, he reported to spring training at full health. The right-hander fell short in his bid for a spot in Arizona's Opening Day bullpen and will look to impress at Triple-A before earning another look with the big club.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Outrighted to minors

    Ginkel (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Ginkel spent the final few weeks of the 2021 campaign on the 60-day injured list, and he'll remain off the 40-man roster after several prospects had their contracts selected Friday. The right-hander posted a 6.35 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 28.1 innings across 32 relief appearances in the big leagues last year.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Lands on 60-day IL

    Ginkel was recalled from Triple-A Reno and placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday with right elbow inflammation.

    Ginkel landed on the injured list at Reno in late July, and he's being move to the major-league 60-day IL to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. There's been no indication where the 27-year-old is at in his recovery, but given the length of his absence, he won't be returning down the stretch for Arizona.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Demoted to Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks optioned Ginkel to Triple-A Reno following Saturday's 9-3 loss to the Dodgers.

    Ginkel's demotion comes in the wake of perhaps his worst relief appearance of the season. During Saturday's loss, Ginkel retired only three of the eight batters he faced in a 36-pitch outing, giving up three earned runs on a double and four walks. The loss of control was a surprise from Ginkel; he had issued only three free passes over his last 14 relief appearances combined.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Blown up in loss

    Ginkel (0-1) took the loss Tuesday, allowing three runs on three hits while striking out one over a third of an inning in a 9-3 loss to Miami.

    The Diamondbacks had just clawed their way back to tie the game in the top of the eighth, but it took just two batters in the bottom half of the inning for Miami to reclaim the lead off the usually reliable Ginkel. Throw in some shoddy defense and the Marlins pushed six runs across the plate. Ginkel entered the game with a 3.27 ERA and 1.27 WHIP before picking up his first loss of the season.
