    • Michael Blazek: Elects free agency
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blazek will become a free agent and hit the open market following the conclusion of the 2017 season. Blazek made five appearances with the Brewers this season, allowing eight earned runs in 8.2 innings, including a disastrous start against the Nationals in late July which ended up being his last big-league outing of the year. The 28-year-old was a solid contributor at the Triple-A level for Colorado Springs, and will likely latch on with another organization in the hopes of making the 25-man roster next year.

    • Blazek was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday. The reliever was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Sunday, and after passing through waivers, will remain with Colorado Springs moving forward. Throughout the course of the 2017 season in the big league, Blazek has accumulated a 8.31 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 8.2 innings of work, including a disastrous appearance as a starter in Washington on July 27.

    • Brewers' Michael Blazek: DFA'd Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Blazek was designated for assignment Sunday. The Brewers needed to make room on their 40-man roster for the recently acquired Neil Walker. Blazek was hit with the DFA after posting an 8.31 ERA over 8.2 innings with the big-league club and a 3.73 ERA over 72.1 innings with Triple-A Colorado Springs. He'll remain with Colorado Springs if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

    • Blazek was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday. Blazek got mauled for six home runs in his first big-league start, so now that he's unavailable to pitch for a few days, he'll retreat to the minors to let a fresh arm head to the big leagues. Paolo Espino will replace him on the active roster, although Blazek could be back soon given how well he pitched out of the bullpen for Milwaukee this season.

    • Blazek (0-1) was shelled Thursday afternoon in Washington, giving up eight runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four in 2.1 innings pitched on his way to the loss. To oppose Max Scherzer in your first MLB start is daunting enough, but the Washington offense was simply ruthless to Blazek. The right-hander was done in by six home runs allowed, including five in the third inning. Blazek hadn't allowed a run in four relief appearances prior to Thursday's massacre, so some of his struggles may be able to be pinned on it being his first start in a while. If Matt Garza (lower leg) is indeed ready to make his next scheduled start, Blazek will likely move back into a bullpen role once he's ready to pitch again.
