The Dodgers had a little bit of a scare this past week. Reliever Yency Almonte hit the injured list with what the team was calling right elbow tightness. They had an MRI scheduled for him this week to ensure that there was not a deeper issue, but even Almonte didn’t think anything was wrong.

Dodgers place Yency Almonte on 15-Day IL due to right elbow tightness

The Dodgers placed right-handed reliever Yency Almonte on the injured list Sunday due to lingering tightness in his right elbow. Since joining the Dodgers prior to the 2022 season, Almonte has put together his best season to date, tossing 31.1 innings with a 1.15 ERA and 30 strikeouts. He last pitched on Aug. 3, throwing a scoreless inning in a win over the San Francisco Giants.

Dodgers' Yency Almonte: Out with elbow tightness

Almonte was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with right elbow tightness. It's unclear when exactly Almonte picked up the injury, as he hasn't pitched since firing a scoreless frame Aug. 3 against San Francisco. The 28-year-old has a 1.15 ERA with one save and seven holds across 31.1 innings this season, and Chris Martin could move into a higher-leverage role with Almonte and Brusdar Graterol (shoulder) on the IL.

Dodgers' Yency Almonte: Notches seventh hold

Almonte earned a hold against Colorado on Sunday, striking out two batters over 1.1 scoreless innings. Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin gave up only one run but threw 92 pitches over five frames, and Almonte was brought in to protect a two-run lead in the sixth. The right-hander struck out two of the four batters he faced and registered his 10th straight scoreless outing. Almonte was outstanding in July, posting a 0.93 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB while picking up a save and two holds over 9.2 innings. He has a sparkling 1.23 ERA across 27 appearances on the campaign.

Dodgers' Yency Almonte: Cleans up for first save

Almonte allowed a hit and struck out one to earn the save in Monday's 5-3 win over the Rockies. Reyes Moronta made a mess of things quickly in the ninth inning, allowing a solo home run to C.J. Cron. He allowed two more baserunners aboard, and Almonte entered, promptly giving up an RBI single to Charlie Blackmon. Almonte was able to strike out Connor Joe, ending the threat and earning his first save in 18 appearances this year. In his last three outings, Almonte has been charged with two runs and four hits over two innings, so he's not in the sharpest form currently. He could still get some extra save chances in the short term with Craig Kimbrel (back) unavailable. Almonte has earned the high-leverage looks with a 1.74 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 22:7 K:BB across 20.2 innings, and he's added four holds.

Yency Almonte is the latest chapter in departed, rebranded relievers

Since being called up on May 12, Almonte has posted a big-league ERA of 1.13. He’s allowed just two runs in 16 innings. Nick Groke and Fabian Ardaya talked about Almonte earlier this month, and it’s no surprise that something is being done in L.A. just by looking at pitch data alone.
