Moylan signed a minor league contract with the Royals on Saturday that includes an invite to major league Spring Training. The veteran right-hander spent last season with the Braves, appearing in 22 games but only pitching 10.1 innings out of the bullpen. He'll have the chance to compete for a bullpen spot this spring, but it's no guarantee that he makes the Opening Day roster given the Royals already-strong group of relievers.
The Braves brought up pitcher Peter Moylan, the team announced Sunday. Moylan last pitched in the majors during the 2013 season and produced a 6.46 ERA over 15 1/3 innings. To make room for Moylan, the team sent pitcher Jake Brigham down to Triple-A. Brigham produced a 4.80 ERA over 15 innings this season.
The Braves have officially signed right-hander Peter Moylan to a two-year minor-league contract, the organization announced on Wednesday. Moylan, 36, will serve as a player/coach for minor-league affiliate Danville. Moylan had Tommy John surgery a year ago and wasn't able to play. He posted a 6.46 ERA in 15 1/3 during the 2013 season.
The Braves have signed pitcher Peter Moylan to a minor-league deal, according to MLB Trade Rumors. Moylan had Tommy John surgery last season, but is hoping to be able to pitch in games in April or May. The 36-year-old posted a 6.46 ERA over 15 1/3 innings in 2013.
Free-agent pitcher Peter Moylan indicated Friday that he's "doing fantastic" in his return from his second Tommy John surgery, the Houston Chronicle reports. "I'm doing fantastic, mate. Dropped 35 pounds," Moylan said. "My goal is to be 100 percent by end of spring. Ball is coming out great, though. Probably have to throw for some teams right around the start of spring to gauge interest, but there have already been some nibbles, which is encouraging." Moylan underwent the procedure last March after receiving a non-roster invitation from the Astros. He's throwing from about 70 percent strength off a mound and in the process of deciding whether to sign a a deal in the near future or after the season begins. He hopes to resume pitching in the big leagues by midseason at the earliest. Moylan has made 309 appearances since debuting in 2006, compiling a 21-9 record, 2.80 ERA and 213:121 K:BB ratio in 276 innings.
