Nationals Player Profile: Kyle Barraclough, #20

Kyle Barraclough, relief pitcher

The Washington Nationals acquired relief pitcher Kyle Barraclough from the Miami Marlins in October, 2018.

The 28-year old had spent four years with the south Florida ballclub, his entire major league career. During that time, Barraclough proved himself to be one of Miami's most effective bullpen arms. In 2018 he saved 10 games, a career high, and in June he earned the NL Relief Pitcher of the month after allowing only one hit to 36 batters faced.

Unfortunately, August and September proved cruel to the native Californian. In his final 24 games of the season, his ERA rose to 10.24. Barraclough lost the Marlin's closer job in September.

The Nationals enter the 2019 season with Sean Doolittle firmly ensconced in the closer role. However, if Barraclough can regain the control he'd enjoyed over the first 3 1/2 seasons with Miami, the right-hander will add some much needed depth to the Washington bullpen.
