Sam Coonrod was shut down from throwing for three days.
Coonrod, who was placed on the injured list on June 25, was still feeling something in his right elbow. He remains without a clear timetable to return.
The Philadelphia Phillies placed reliever Sam Coonrod on the 10-day injured list with forearm tendinitis.
Coonrod has a 4.18 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 24.8% strikeout rate, and 8.3% walk rate in 28 innings. He earned seven holds and two saves this season. Coonrod is only relevant in saves plus holds leagues, but can be cuttable even in deeper formats.
Sam Coonrod blew the save and took a loss in Game 2 of the Giants doubleheader against the Padres when he allowed three runs on two hits with a walk and a strikeout over 1/3 of an inning.
Coonrod entered in the bottom of the seventh to protect a two-run lead but only recorded one out before surrendering a three-run walk off homer to Trent Grisham. Giants manager Gabe Kapler has insisted on using Coonrod in high-leverage situations all year despite the reliever's propensity to give up runs. He's got a 9.82 ERA and 1.64 across 14 2/3 innings.
Sam Coonrod picked up his third save of the season when he worked a scoreless ninth inning and struck out two in the Giants 5-2 win over the Rockies on Tuesday.
This was Coonrod's first save opportunity since August 30th and he converted it with no issues. His season stats are nothing to write home about, though, with a 7.74 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 14 strikeouts over 13 2/3 innings pitched. San Francisco has taken a closer-by-committee approach this year, which makes most of relievers unusable in standard fantasy formats.
Sam Coonrod picked up his second save of the season on Monday when he allowed one run on one hit with one strikeout over 1.1 innings in the Giants 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks.
Coonrod entered in the the top of the eighth inning, replacing Sam Selman, with runners on second and third and got Wyatt Mathisen to pop out to end the threat. He then came back out for the ninth and gave up a solo home run to David Peralta before retiring the next three batters in order to pick up the save. It's a three-way committee for saves in San Francisco right now with Tyler Rogers, Tony Watson, and Coonrod all mixing in. Rogers and Watson have more fantasy appeal, especially in leagues that count holds. Coonrod and his 8.10 ERA and 1.40 WHIP is hard to trust.
