Blake Snell on pitching out of the bullpen: “I was pretty bored.”

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Cool, calm, collected. That was Cy Young winner Blake Snell waiting for his turn in Game 4 of the ALDS. Blake Snell made the first relief appearance of his career on Tuesday, earning a save in Game 4 of the ALDS against the Houston Astros, and for his part Snell both loved and hated the experience.
