Devenski (elbow) elected free agency Friday rather than accept an outright assignment to the minors, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Devenski battled arm troubles throughout the season and eventually underwent surgery to removed a bone spur from his right elbow. He threw just 3.2 innings and allowed six runs. After breaking out with a 2.38 ERA in his first two seasons in the league, he now owns a 4.88 ERA in his last three. A pitcher with mediocre recent numbers and recent elbow surgery is unlikely to be too popular on the open market.
Devenski underwent season-ending surgery Tuesday to remove a bone spur from his right elbow, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports. The Astros haven't announced a timeline for Devenski's return to full activities, but given that his procedure wasn't a reconstructive one, he should have a good chance at being ready to go for the start of spring training. Due to arm injuries, Devenski was limited to only four appearances out of the Houston bullpen this season.
Devenski returned to the injured list Monday, this time with elbow discomfort, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. Devenski missed more than a month with arm soreness and returned for just two appearances before heading right back to the injured list. He's allowed six earned runs in 3.2 innings this season.
Devenski (arm) was activated from the injured list Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. Devenski returns after missing more than a month with arm soreness. He allowed three runs in just two innings of work prior to landing on the injured list. Joe Biagini was optioned in a corresponding move.
Devenski (arm) could return during this current road trip that lasts through Sept. 13, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports. He progressed to throwing off a mound in mid-August and the fact that he is traveling with the team suggests his activation could come soon. If Devenski is back to his old self, he could immediately be a setup option ahead of closer Ryan Pressly.
