According to reports by Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Washington Nationals are “likely” to trade Tyler Clippard.
Clippard, a right-handed reliever for the Nationals, has pitched for Washington since 2008 and will turn 30 years old by the time next season rolls around.
While Clippard did get some closing experience back in 2012, he has served primarily as a setup man for...
MLB free agency is underway, but that does not mean that Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski would pass on a trade if one came along. We’ve seen more than enough aggressive moves from Dombrowski now to know that he is constantly working the phones.
And FOX’s Ken Rosenthal offers up a possible target: Washington reliever Tyler Clippard.
The Nats are deep in young relievers, though...
There are antics, and then there are bullpen antics. Like, Drew Storen giving Tyler Clippard bunny ears on TV in the bullpen Monday night. Nothing else to see here.
Clippard didn't look so pleased when Matt Williams pulled him in the 8th with 2 on and 2 out, choosing to have Matt Thornton face Freddie Freeman:
Clippard on not facing Freeman: “The eighth inning is...
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 these...
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.AL beats...
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...
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 reliever Tyler Clippard has returned from a bad back, but bullpen hopeful Ryan Mattheus is scheduled for an MRI on his chest.
Clippard had not thrown in five days because of tightness in his back. The righty setup man said he felt fine after an 8-minute bullpen session Monday.
Mattheus says began experiencing discomfort following a bullpen session last Tuesday...

Right-handed reliever Tyler Clippard and the Washington Nationals have agreed on a one-year contract for $5.875,000, avoiding arbitration.
Clippard's deal Monday means all eight Nationals players who filed for arbitration wound up settling before a hearing.
Clippard earned $4 million last year and asked for a raise to $6.35 million, while the team offered $4.45 million. In addition...

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...
