7 trade targets from the Miami Marlins for the Colorado Rockies
Miami Marlins reliever Anthony Bass is another veteran option for the Colorado Rockies
Miami Marlins reliever Anthony Bass is another veteran relief option that could help the Colorado Rockies troublesome bullpen.
Bass, 34, has bounced around a bit in the majors as he has spent parts of 10 seasons in the majors with seven different teams. Bass spent his first season with the Marlins in 2021 and he had a spotty record, depending on what stats you look at.
In 70 appearances, he had an ERA of 3.82 (110 ERA+) but he had a record of 3-9. He also had a 4.93 FIP and a 1.288 WHIP and both of those are a bit high as well. He walked out 3.5 and struck out 8.5 batters per nine innings.
He pitched for Toronto in 2020 and he had an ERA of 3.51 in 26 appearances along with an ERA+ of 127, a FIP of 3.62, a WHIP 1.013, and walked 3.2 and struck out 7.4 batters per nine innings.
The thing that may make him intriguing for the Rockies is his groundball rate. Since 2019, it is 50.1 percent and, like Bleier and Floro, that would make him the top groundball pitcher in the Rockies bullpen. Overall, among relievers with at least 100 innings pitched in that span, that is 32nd-highest.
He is entering the final year of a two-year deal, as he is owed $3 million in 2022. Additionally, there is a team option for $3 million in 2023.
