TYLER CLIPPARD RUMORS

Tyler Clippard in shades during All-Star Game introductions

Up above, a shot of Tyler Clippard in sunglasses during pregame introductions before the All-Star Game last night. (Screencap via @xmasape) What's with the shades, Tyler? "I just put on the shades. They were prescription, and I wanted to be able to see. So it was either that or my glasses. I couldn’t really change. I was like, ‘Uh, I probably shouldn’t be wearing...

Tyler Clippard throws a pitch to the backstop in the All-Star Game (Video)

Here's video of Tyler Clippard throwing his second pitch to the backstop in the 5th inning of the All-Star Game last night; Reds catcher Devin Mesocaro played the carom perfectly and nearly picked off Alexei Ramirez at third. Clippard threw 11 pitches, 8 strikes, didn't give up a hit, but allowed an inherited runner to score. No vulture win this time around for Clippard...

Tyler Clippard Earned It

The news that the Nats will have an all-star after all, and that that all-star will be Tyler Clippard, is a little puzzling. Basically because Rafael Soriano is the closer, and he has a 0.97 ERA to boot. Clippard’s ERA (2.03) isn’t quite there, but his other numbers are. He leads the pen in innings (40) and strikeouts (53), and he handles high-leverage eighth-inning situations...

Tyler Clippard Misses Everything (AGAIN)

Nationals reliever Tyler Clippard has 21 scoreless appearances. But, occassional he reminds us of Ricky Vaughn of Major League. On Wednesday night he gave us one of his signature wild pitches. This is becoming something of a tradition for #Nats' RHP Tyler Clippard… https://t.co/mVAh0HSORo — federalbaseball (@federalbaseball) June 12, 2014 Facing San Francisco Giants right-fielder [...]

Washington Nationals: should they trade Tyler Clippard?

It is clear that the Washington Nationals have a surplus of strong arms at the back end of their bullpen. This may not be the case for long, however, as rumors have been circulating that the team is looking to move one of the trio of arms. Before the signing of Rafael Soriano, Drew Storen was Nationals’ closer, saving 43 games in 2011. After Soriano was added to the roster, Storen...

Washington Nationals pitcher Tyler Clippard falls off mound during pitch

When Tyler Clippard threw one to the screen...

And so, like Henry Rodriguez a few nights ago, a pitch got away from Tyler Clippard last night and flew to the screen. One difference: Henry's was a 97 MPH heater; Clippard's was more like a 50 MPH Livan Hernandez junkball that slipped out of his hand. Another, perhaps bigger, difference: the reaction by fans behind home plate: Henry made a guy spill his beer, scaring...

Tyler Clippard says it was 140 degrees in the bullpen today

In case you've been living under a rock and/or living outside of the convection oven that is Washington DC (say, Alaska): there's a heat wave going on in DC. Friday night, Stephen Strasburg wilted in the 96 degree heat (again). On Saturday, Gio Gonzalez earned his 12th win with 6 innings of 3 hit-ball in 101 degree heat. Tyler Clippard earned his 14th save. After the...

Q&A: Nationals Closer Tyler Clippard

Tyler Clippard was the winning pitcher in last year’s All-Star game. That might come as a surprise to casual fans, because the Washington Nationals set-up-man-turned-closer isn’t exactly a household name. He is, however, one of the best relievers in the National League. Originally a starter in the Yankees system, the 27-year-old Clippard has been quietly lethal since moving into...

Is Anything Wrong with Tyler Clippard?

Tyler Clippard was the Washington Nationals’ lone representative at the 2011 All-Star Game and with good reason. He was, without a doubt, the best reliever on the pitching staff and was perhaps the best set-up man in baseball. The start of the 2012 season hasn’t been quite so smooth for the former All-Star. So, it begs the question, what’s happened to Tyler Clippard? To jog...
