Adam Cimber


Where would the Blue Jays be without Adam Cimber?

Where would the Toronto Blue Jays be without reliever Adams Cimber? Given the shallow depth of the Blue Jays bullpen, I can only shudder to imagine. He has been able to keep his place as a go-to arm in high leverage situations since establishing himself in that role after being acquired from the Marlins last season. Crucially, he has also remained steady in this role while offseason signing Yimi Garcia and closer Jordan Romano have struggled physically with the heavy workload the Blue Jays have required of them.

Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Picks up fourth save

Cimber earned the save in Thursday's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay, striking out one in a perfect ninth inning. Cimber had no trouble with the middle of the Rays' lineup and needed just 10 pitches to close out the game. It was his fourth save of the season and first since May 17. After a rough patch in the middle of June, the righty has allowed just one baserunner in his last 3.2 innings. Jordan Romano had pitched on consecutive days and will continue to serve as Toronto's closer, but Cimber should still receive the occasional save chance.

Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Earns rare save Monday

Cimber pitched two-thirds of an inning, retiring both batters he faced while striking out one on his way to a save in Monday's 6-2 win over the Mariners. With Jordan Romano (illness) unavailable Monday, Cimber was called upon to get the final two outs of the Blue Jays' win over the Mariners. After Ross Stripling gave up an unearned run while registering one out in the ninth, the 29-year-old entered the game and got both batters he faced out, stranding two runners on base. The save was his second of the season while he has five holds operating as a set-up option before Romano who typically gets the ninth frame. Cimber has a 2.35 ERA and 0.85 WHIP with 11 punchouts in 15.1 innings this year.

Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Stuck with loss Sunday

Cimber (4-2) took the loss Sunday against the Guardians, recording only one out while giving up a run on two hits and a walk. Entering a 3-3 tie with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, Cimber couldn't find that third out, issuing a free pass to Andres Gimenez in between sharp singles from Franmil Reyes and Oscar Mercado. The sidearmer hadn't pitched since Tuesday, but he might still be feeling the effects of a fairly heavy early-season workload that has included a lot of high-leverage spots. Cimber sports a 2.84 ERA and 0.87 WHIP with a save and five holds over 13 appearances and 12.2 innings.

Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Backs into win No. 4

Cimber (4-0) picked up the win but blew the save in Monday's victory over the Red Sox, giving up one hit without allowing a run in the eighth inning. While the sidearmer's own line in the box score was clean, he did allow two inherited runners to score, costing Jose Berrios the win as Cimber left the mound with the score tied 2-2. Bo Bichette's grand slam in the bottom of the frame then gave the right-hander another vultured win. Cimber's importance to the Blue Jays' bullpen is highlighted by the fact that he's recorded a win (four), save (one) or hold (three) in all eight of his appearances so far in 2022.

Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Picks up save

Cimber allowed one hit and struck out one across a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Saturday against Houston. Jordan Romano had pitched both Thursday and Friday, leaving him unavailable for Saturday's game. Cimber stepped into the ninth inning role in Romano's absence and maintained a one-run lead to earn his first save of the season. He surrendered a leadoff single, but struck out the next batter he faced before inducing a double play to end the game. Cimber has been excellent early on in the campaign, maintaining a 2.25 ERA with a 6:0 K:BB while also picking up three holds across eight innings. While he may pick up saves at random points in the season, Cimber is not a candidate for the closer role so long as Romano remains healthy.

Blue Jays: Adam Cimber Poised to Be Valuable Arm This Season

Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Looks ready for Opening Day

Cimber hasn't given up a run over 4.1 innings this spring with a 5:0 K:BB. The groundball specialist (53.8 percent GB% in 2021) isn't typically a strikeout pitcher, but he's been dominant nonetheless in Grapefruit League play. Cimber figures to be a key member of the Blue Jays' bullpen this season, but that role didn't result in much fantasy value last year -- he managed two wins, one save and five holds in 39 appearances for Toronto despite a 1.69 ERA and 0.96 WHIP.

Blue Jays’ Adam Cimber Has Been Very Valuable Down the Stretch

Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Dealt another loss

Cimber (2-4) lost Friday's 3-2 contest against the Mariners, allowing one run on a hit and two walks with a strikeout in two-thirds of an inning. Cimber entered a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the ninth and retired the first two Mariners he faced before permitting three straight baserunners and being removed. Brad Hand came in and walked Jarred Kelenic on four pitches to make Cimber the loser. Despite two losses in his last three appearances, the submariner has a 1.08 ERA in 17 innings with Toronto since coming over from Miami in late June.

Blue Jays to acquire Corey Dickerson, Adam Cimber from Marlins

In one of the first deals of the summer trade season, the Blue Jays have reportedly agreed to acquire right-handed reliever Adam Cimber and left-handed-hitting outfielder Corey Dickerson from the Marlins in exchange for infielder Joe Panik and minor-league righty Andrew McInvale. The swap comes barely a week after Toronto GM Ross Atkins acknowledged a desire to add bullpen help (and after the team was reported to be seeking left-handed bats on the trade market).
