Triggs became a free agent Monday after refusing an outright assignment to the minors, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. Triggs threw just 8.1 innings for the Giants and Red Sox this season, posting a 7.56 ERA and a 7:6 K:BB. It wasn't a particularly compelling comeback after he lost the entirety of 2019 due to a hip injury. Injuries have limited him to just 34.3 innings per year since he debuted back in 2016.
Triggs (neck) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday. Triggs wound up missing just two weeks with a pinched nerve in his neck. He hasn't impressed this season, allowing seven runs in 7.1 innings for the Giants and Red Sox, but he could get a chance to improve upon those numbers in one of the final two games of the year. Jeffrey Springs was optioned in a corresponding move.
Triggs (neck) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right radial nerve irritation, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. The 31-year-old was known to be suffering from a pinched nerve in his neck after delivering a scoreless inning Friday, and he's now dealing with a nerve issue in his hand. It's unclear how long Triggs is expected to be sidelined, but he may not pitch again this year with less than two weeks left in the season.
Triggs is dealing with a pinched nerve in his neck following Friday's loss to the Rays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. Triggs only tossed one scoreless inning Friday as he allowed one hit and one walk while striking out zero. He didn't factor into the decision. Manager Ron Roenicke said after the game that he wasn't supposed to be used as an opener, but he was unable to remain in the game due to his neck injury. The right-hander will be further evaluated Saturday, and a decision regarding how much time he'll miss could be made once the team knows more about the injury.
Triggs will start Friday's game against the Rays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. Triggs isn't yet an official part of Boston's starting rotation, but he'll make his second start for the team on normal rest at Tropicana Field on Friday. He was effective as he settled for a no-decision Sunday, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four over three innings against the Blue Jays. The right-hander has had mixed results this season, and it's unlikely that he'll be able to go very deep into Friday's start since he hasn't pitched more than three innings in any appearance in 2020.
