40 in 40: Marc Rzepczynski

Scrabble will help the bullpen, sure, but he’s still a bit of a strange acquisition. Multiple things confuse me about Marc Rzepczynski. For starters, there’s the obvious matter of his alphabet-soup last name. It’s pronounced “zep-CHIN-skee,” which makes the R silent. I think I’ve mostly figured this one out by now, but it could take Dave Sims a while. Next, there’s...

Marc Rzepczynski glad to no longer face Mariners’ lefty sluggers

In 2016, southpaw pitcher Marc Rzepczynski allowed just one home run to a left-handed batter. In 2017, he’s glad to call that batter his teammate and not his foe. “The one home run I actually gave up was to Kyle (Seager),” Rzepczynski told “Danny, Dave and Moore” on Monday while recalling the numerous times he had to face Seager, Robinson Cano and the Mariners’ other...

Mariners hope Rzepczynski spells lefty relief

His nickname is "Scrabble," which is easier to say than Marc Rzepczynski. But the Mariners are mostly hoping their new lefty helps spell relief for a bullpen that lacked a southpaw specialist last season.

Projecting Max Schrock, the Return for Marc Rzepczynski

A 13th-round pick last year, infielder Max Schrock — received by Oakland today from Washington in exchange for left-handed reliever Marc Rzepczynski — has made something of a name for himself by putting up strong offensive numbers in the lower levels. He’s hitting .333 between two levels of A-ball this season, largely due to an 8% strikeout rate. That’s encouraging coming...

Indians trade Marc Rzepczynski to San Diego for Abraham Almonte

The Cleveland Indians had one last trade to sneak in just ahead of the 2015 MLB trade deadline. They traded left-handed reliever Marc “Scrabble” Rzepczynski to the San Diego Padres in exchange for 26 year old Abraham Almonte (ESPN’s Keith Law was the first to report though he misspelled Rzepczynski in his rush). Scrabble was seemingly struggling overall this season pitching...

Lefty Rzepczynski Tries to Be Right in Tribe Bullpen

Like in any career, in baseball, promotions come through excellent production. Two years ago Marc Rzepczynski was stuck in a logjam in the St. Louis Cardinals bullpen. Asked to pitch in a long relief role, Rzepczynski struggled and found himself battling to stay at the big league level when the Cardinals dealt him to the Indians at the July 2013 trade deadline. A new location and...

Marc Rzepczynski is a Lefty to Rely On

The Cleveland Indians open the 2014 season with new expectations despite many questions. The Indians’ 25-man roster will look different than the group that won 92 games and lost the American League Wild Card game to the Tampa Bay Rays. While the roster may change and the expectations grow, Cleveland will need answer many questions this spring before opening the season in Oakland...

Indians, Rzepczynski agree to 1-year deal

The Indians avoided salary arbitration with reliever Marc Rzepczynski by agreeing to a one-year contract worth $1,375,000. The left-hander posted a 0.89 ERA in 27 games last season for Cleveland, which acquired Rzepczynski (zep-chin-ski) on July 30 from St. Louis.
