Kevin Ginkel (0-2) took the loss Wednesday against the Dodgers, allowing two runs (one earned) on one hit and a walk in 0.1 innings.
Ginkel entered in the 10th inning and allowed the 10th inning runner to score via an RBI single. Ginkel had blown his first opportunity at closer last week against the Dodgers. He's not off to a good start in his high-leverage role.
Kevin Ginkel issued one walk and struck out one in a scoreless inning against the Giants on Friday, converting his first save.
Ginkel failed to convert his first save chance earlier this week, but he was much better in this second opportunity. Despite rumblings of a closer-by-committee approach, manager Tory Lovullo has deployed Ginkel in each of the team's first two save opportunities since Archie Bradley departed.
Kevin Ginkel allowed a run on two hits while striking out one in one inning Wednesday, blowing the save against the Dodgers.
This was the first save chance in Arizona after Archie Bradley's departure, and it didn't go well for Ginkel. Tory Lovullo will likely deploy a committee of Ginkel, Junior Guerra, Stefan Crichton, and Yoan Lopez for saves for the rest of the season. This makes neither of them interesting for fantasy.
