Brandon Kintzler traded to the Cubs

Brandon Kintzler was traded to the Chicago Cubs Tuesday afternoon. The Nationals will get a Single-A pitcher in return.

Fantasy Impact

Kintzler will head to the Cubs with a 3.59 ERA. He had a really rough start to the season but has worked that ERA down from 18.00 back in April to the 3.59 he has now. He will more than likely be a set-up man for the Cubs.

Brandon Kintzler strikes out two in one inning of work Thursday

Brandon Kintzler came on in relief in the 7th inning of Thursday night's game against the Marlins. He was able to take the batters down 1-2-3, striking two of them out and earning a hold.

Fantasy Impact

After a rough outing in Milwaukee on Tuesday, Kintzler came out and was able to strike out a pair to get the Nats to the 8th inning. He doesn't hold much fantasy value at this point.

Brandon Kintzler tosses perfect inning Sunday

Brandon Kintzler pitched a perfect sixth inning Sunday with one strikeout in the Nationals' 4-3 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Kintzler now has two perfect appearances since returning from the disabled list, but with the Nationals' acquisition of Kelvin Herrera he has been pushed down the reliever depth chart in Washington. With a 1.75 K/BB ratio and 4.41 SIERA on the season Kintzler isn't a great holds option anyway.

Brandon Kintzler has begun throwing on flat ground

Brandon Kintzler began throwing on flat ground Tuesday. He's been on the DL with a flexor strain since June 10th.

Fantasy Impact

The Nationals are hopeful that Kintzler will return to the bullpen in early July. It's suspected that the Nationals grabbed Kelvin Herrera now rather than later due to the rash of issues their bullpen has had recently.

Brandon Kintzler (forearm) placed on ten-day disabled list Sunday

Brandon Kintzler was placed on the ten-day disabled list with a right forearm strain on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

It would seem that Kintzler avoided serious injury, as told reporters he is confident he'll return after the minimum of 10 days. Wander Suero and Trevor Gott were both called up to take the roster spots of Kintzler and Stephen Strasburg.
