Guardians' Trevor Stephan: Dealt second loss

Stephan (2-2) took the loss Thursday versus the Tigers. He allowed a run on two hits and struck out one in one-third of an inning. Stephan entered with the game tied at 3-3, but he allowed a double to Jonathan Schoop, who then advanced to third on a wild pitch. Miguel Cabrera added a walkoff single, handing Stephan his second loss in his last three outings. The right-hander now owns a 3.00 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB across 18 innings in 18 appearances. He's given up five runs (four earned) in his last four outings.

Guardians' Trevor Stephan: Takes loss Thursday

Stephan (2-1) took the loss Thursday versus the Reds. He allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning without recording a strikeout. Stephan was called upon to pitch the eighth inning, and it was his own throwing error that allowed the second of the Reds' three runs in the frame to score. He has allowed six runs (five earned) across 6.2 innings during May after giving up just one unearned run over 10 frames in April. It shakes out to a 2.70 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB for the right-hander, who has added a save and three holds in 16 appearances.

Guardians' Trevor Stephan: Notches first save

Stephan struck out two batters in a perfect inning and earned a save over the White Sox on Monday. Stephan worked a clean 11th inning to convert his first save chance of the year. The 26-year-old is sporting an impressive 15:3 K:BB and 1.35 ERA through 13.1 innings. He'll maintain a late-inning role but won't see many save chances behind Emmanuel Clase.

Guardians' Trevor Stephan: Earns win Tuesday

Stephan (1-0) allowed a hit in a scoreless inning, earning the win Tuesday versus the Reds. Stephan pitched the eighth inning, and the Guardians rallied for the lead on a two-run home run by Andres Gimenez and a grand slam by Jose Ramirez in the ninth. Through 2.2 innings in three appearances, Stephan has allowed two hits with one strikeout, and he's yet to give up a run. The right-hander did alright as a multi-inning option last season with a 4.41 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 75:31 K:BB, but it appears he's gained a bit more trust early in 2022 to work in tighter games.

Trevor Stephan might be the key to Guardians bullpen success in 2022: 40-man roster review podcast

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Trevor Stephan did something for Cleveland in 2021 that no other player had done in 30 years. He became the second Rule 5 draft pick since 1991 to make it to opening day with the club, joining ex-Montreal farmhand Mike Thomas. But unlike Thomas, Stephan stuck around and lasted the entire season on Cleveland’s roster, earning the club control over the 25-year-old righty through the 2027 season.

Indians' Trevor Stephan: Hard-luck loss Friday

Stephan (3-1) took the loss Friday, allowing one run on two hits with three strikeouts in two innings versus the White Sox. The 25-year-old gave up the only run in the game on a Luis Robert solo home run in the fifth inning. Stephan's ratios aren't great this year (4.62 ERA, 1.43 WHIP), but Friday's loss was the first he's taken in 41 appearances. He's added a save and two holds, but he's also posted a 5.58 FIP, which indicates he's gotten a little lucky. Expect the right-hander to finish the year in a low-leverage role.

Indians' Trevor Stephan: Notches first career save

Stephan earned the save over the Royals on Wednesday by striking out two batters in a perfect 11th inning. Regular starter Emmanuel Clase was deployed in the ninth inning of a tie game, leaving Stephan to close things out with a two-run lead in the 11th. He did so with ease, retiring Andrew Benintendi on a flyout before striking out the final two batters he faced. Stephan has mostly worked in long relief this season, having logged a combined 7.2 innings over his previous three appearances. He'll likely return to that role moving forward.

Indians' Trevor Stephan: Picks up third win

Stephan (3-0) allowed one run on two hits and struck out four in 2.2 innings, earning the win Thursday over Texas. The 25-year-old once again worked as a long reliever behind starter Sam Hentges. It's been a fruitful role for Stephan, who has earned wins in each of his last two appearances. The right-hander has a 4.50 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 53:25 K:BB across 48 innings this year. Cleveland hasn't announced this as an official piggyback situation, but it's worth keeping an eye on, as Stephan's fantasy value would receive a boost if he can continue to vulture some wins.
