Stauffer signed a minor league contract with the Diamondbacks, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Stauffer struggled in two stops in the MLB last season, holding a 6.97 ERA in 18 appearances. However, he was excellent in the minors, going 4-1 in eight starts for Triple-A Las Vegas with a 2.48 ERA. He's a good piece in the minors and has the skill set to be an extra arm at the end of the bullpen if necessary.
Stauffer was designated for assignment Monday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. The move was simply a procedural one, as the Mets needed to clear room on their 40-man roster after adding Matt Reynolds to the playoff roster to replace the injured Ruben Tejada. Stauffer will enter the offseason as a free agent, and will likely be a long relief option or back of the rotation starter wherever he lands.
The Mets have signed veteran right-hander Tim Stauffer, who had been released by Minnesota in June, per ESPN. Stauffer, who was most recently pitching for the independent Sugar Land Skeeters, compiled a 6.60 ERA with the Twins in 13 relief appearances. He allowed 24 hits and seven walks in just 15 innings.
The Twins released veteran pitcher Tim Stauffer on Wednesday, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Stauffer was recently designated for assignment before the release. He has a 6.60 ERA in 15 innings pitched this year.
The Twins recalled pitcher Michael Tonkin to the 25-man roster and optioned shortstop Jorge Polanco to a Double-A affiliate. The Twins also designated pitcher Tim Stauffer for assignment. Tonkin was recently with the Rochester Red Wings, the Triple-A affiliate of the Twins. With the Twins this year, he's posted a 5.63 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over eight innings of relief this season.
