Tyler Kinley is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played for the Minnesota Twins and Miami Marlins.
Tyler Kinley was drafted by the Miami Marlins in the 16th round of the 2013 amateur baseball draft. He was picked by the Minnesota Twins in the 2017 Rule V Draft after spending five seasons in the Marlins’ system.
He was on the team’s roster for the start of the season, but he had to wait a full week before making his debut.
When he pitched the final inning of an 11-4 loss to the Seattle Mariners on April 7th, he allowed a run on a lead-off double by Jean Segura, an error by left fielder Eddie Rosario and a wild pitch.
On May 1st, he returned to the Marlins after making four appearances with the Minnesota Twins, during which he allowed 9 runs in 3 1/3 innings. Later in the season, he appeared in nine additional games with the Marlins.
After the 2019 season, he was traded to the Colorado Rockies via waivers. Daniel Bard’s set-up man for the Colorado Rockies in 2022 was a complete surprise, since he had an ERA of 5.32 and 4.73 in 24 and 70 games, respectively, in his first two seasons with the team.
