Nationals' Matt Albers: Signs minor league contract with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albers agreed to a minor league deal with the Nationals on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

The 34-year-old is coming off one of the worst years of his career, and definitely of recent memory, posting an abysmal 6.31 ERA across 51.1 innings with only 30 strikeouts and 19 walks. The Nationals took a flyer on Albers, and he'll need to return to his numbers prior to 2016 if he wants to make an impact in 2017.

Matt Albers: Becomes free agent after White Sox decline 2017 option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox declined their 2017 option for Albers' contract, making him a free agent.

After averaging a 2.28 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over the last three seasons, Albers saw said marks shoot up to 6.31 and 1.68, respectively. As a result, the White Sox have decided to buyout the remainder of his contract and part ways with the righty. Regardless of where he ends up, Albers will almost certainly remain in the bullpen and look to rebound from 2016's dreadful performance.

White Sox's Matt Albers: Having terrible season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albers has allowed 12 earned runs since July 1, giving up 25 hits and six walks while striking out just seven over 16.1 innings.

After not allowing an earned run in his first 12.2 innings of the season, Albers has been awful with a 7.50 ERA and 1.89 WHIP. He has 13 holds this season, but none since July 25.

White Sox's Matt Albers: Slated to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Albers will start Saturday against the Tigers in place of Chris Sale (illness), Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

With Sale reportedly under the weather (not traded), Albers will step in opposite Matt Boyd for his first start since 2008. Albers has struggled since April and hasn't thrown more than 37 pitches in any appearance this season, so Saturday will effectively be a bullpen game for the White Sox.

White Sox's Matt Albers: Gets to play extra-inning hero
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albers (2-4) worked around two hits and a walk in two scoreless frames Wednesday against the Mets, and he helped his own cause by doubling and scoring the game-winning run in the top of the 13th.

A 33-year-old veteran reliever, Albers hadn't even had an at-bat since 2009, and both of his career hits came way back in 2007, back when he was a starting pitcher. But you wouldn't have known it from the way the chunky righty -- who bats lefty -- socked a 2-2 pitch into the gap in left-center, getting it past the Mets' outfielders, who were playing shallow. He came around to score on a wild pitch and a sac fly, then came out for the bottom of the frame and locked down his win.
