2007 With 182 career saves despite never really pitching like a closer, Danny Graves spent the offseason looking for a spring training invite. In 2005 and 2006 combined, his major league ERA was 6.32 and he allowed 12 home runs in 52.2 innings--the sort of performance that makes a team send a guy invites to other people`s camps.
2006 Graves has had a negative STF count at every stop in his career save for his rookie year. What the Mets thought they were getting when they picked him up is puzzling, and what they were thinking when they brought him back in late September is even more puzzling. Perhaps it was to prove to themselves, once and for all, that he wasn`t worth his $5 million option. Signed up by the team who originally drafted him; we`ll see if the Tribe can iron out his problems.
2005 Now that the ill-fated move to shift Graves to starting is behind them, the Reds stuck with Graves all year as the team's closer, to phenomenal success…or at least that's what you'd think if you looked only at his 41 saves for the year, or his 28 saves through the season's first two months. Looking at our own Reliever Expected Wins Added, we see that Graves finished eighth among relievers—on his own team. The litany of hits and homers allowed by Graves made him barely better than a replacement-level pitcher last year. They're stuck with him at $6.25 million for 2005, plus a mutual option with an escalating buyout for '06. If the Reds were a gambler, they'd be the guy hitting on 17 and parlaying a Devil Rays-Bobcats combo.
2004 Graves was awful as a starter, allowing nearly as many home runs in 169 innings as he had in the previous four years and 381.1 frames. The Reds are calling him their closer for 2004, which makes sense if it means that John Riedling and Ryan Wagner are going to be used in multiple-inning, high-leverage situations. It does waste Graves's ability to throw 100 relief innings, toss three innings at a time and get called in for double-play situations. A nice compromise would be to use all three relievers as situations warrant, with no labels. Jack McKeon already has a job, however.
2003 One of the more interesting stories to follow this year is Graves’s move into the rotation. Unlike most firemen, Graves wasn’t a starter in the minor leagues. However, he took to it like a cat to warm milk in a September test run, posting a 1.89 ERA in four starts. There are plenty of reasons for optimism: he has never been strictly a one-inning closer, he has a four-pitch repertoire and he is economical with his pitches. If Graves can adjust to the new workload, the experiment will be a success. Here’s hoping that other teams follow the Reds’ lead.
2002 There’s some talk about moving Graves into the rotation in 2002, which makes sense when you consider that it’s easier to find relievers than starters, and the Reds will be paying him a pretty penny if they keep him through this winter’s arbitration confrontation. He junked around with perfecting a new slider before finally falling back on the one he’d been using all along. Tighter infield defense would help him in any role, while a Walker/Larkin combo up the middle will fire up a lot of opponent’s rallies.
2001 Jack McKeon finally pulled back on the reins late in 2000. Prior to August 27, Danny Graves had just one stretch in which he threw an inning or less in three straight appearances. From that point on, he had ten straight one-inning appearances and then a final one of two-thirds of an inning. It's an open question how Bob Boone will use him, but I'd guess he'll be the primary closer--70 games, 85 innings--in 2001.
2000 Graves was the best reliever in the NL, as measured by Michael Wolverton’s Reliever Evaluation Tools. Graves was particularly effective at stranding inherited runners, allowing just nine of 44 to score and leading the majors in Inherited Runs Prevented. An extreme groundball pitcher, Graves benefited from the improved infield defense of the Reds. His strikeout rate is unimpressive, and he’s thrown a lot of innings the past two years, so I believe there will be some decline in 2000.
1999 In the closer mix, with the crown of "closer of the future" resting on his head. Given that the Reds won't be contending in '99, there's no reason not to continue with the three-headed monster in the closer role, as long as Graves gets enough work to continue his development.
1998 Closer prospect-turned-trade bait. Like Paul Shuey before him, Graves wasn’t handled well at the major league level by the Indians. He gets good marks for having a closer’s makeup, and a reputation as a closer goes a long way. The Reds have three right-handed relievers better than him, so it will be interesting to see what his role is in 1998.
1997 Named the best reliever in the American Association, Graves succeeds with a plus sinking fastball and a good slider. Graves is an outstanding reliever, and should be a major part of the Indians’ bullpen in ’97. He might be the first major league player of Vietnamese ancestry (his mother).

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)FYI, next couple of HOF classes are thin. Best candidates for 2011 are Bagwell, Raffy Palmeiro (zero shot), Kevin Brown, Al Leiter and Larry Walker. Best candidates for 2012 are Bernie Williams, Tim Salmon and....I dunno, Carl Everett? Rick Helling?
(El Angelo from elangelo@gmail.com)
The 2012 class is thinner than prison gruel. Honestly there aren't five guys among this lot who would get more than a single paragraph out of me in the JAWS series:

Edgardo Alfonzo, Pedro Astacio, David Bell, Jeromy Burnitz, Vinny Castilla, Scott Erickson, Carl Everett, Jeff Fassero, Alex S. Gonzalez, Danny Graves, Rick Helling, Dustin Hermanson, Jose Hernandez, Brian Jordan, Matt Lawton, Javy Lopez, Bill Mueller, Terry Mulholland, Jeff Nelson, Phil Nevin, Brad Radke, Joe Randa, Tim Salmon, Ruben Sierra, Jose Vizcaino, Bernie Williams, Eric Young (Jay Jaffe)
