    • Rainey was recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Saturday. Rainey will take the bullpen spot which had belonged to Justin Miller (shoulder), who was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move. Rainey was hit hard in his big-league debut for the Reds last season, posting a 24.43 ERA and a 7:12 K:BB in seven innings.

    • Nationals' Tanner Rainey: Optioned to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rainey was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Monday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Rainey was acquired by the Nationals in exchange for Tanner Roark this offseason. Known as a hard-thrower who lacks control of his pitches, Rainey struggled this spring allowing seven earned runs and three walks in 4.2 innings of work.

    • Nationals' Tanner Rainey: Roughed up in spring debut
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rainey allowed four runs on four hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning during Tuesday's spring loss to the Cardinals. Rainey was acquired from the Reds for Tanner Roark in December and his first unofficial outing in a Nationals uniform was forgettable. The hard-throwing right-hander has historically struggled with walks (6.2 BB/9 at Triple-A Louisville in 2018), but that was of no concern Tuesday as he fooled no one and threw 12 total pitches to the seven batters he faced.

    • Nationals' Tanner Rainey: Dished to Nationals
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rainey was traded from the Reds to the Nationals on Wednesday in exchange for Tanner Roark. Rainey made his major-league debut in 2018, though he struggled in his small sample, allowing 19 runs while posting a 7:12 K:BB in seven innings of relief. The 25-year-old fared much better in his first taste of Triple-A, notching a 2.65 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 65:35 K:BB across 51 innings with Louisville. Rainey has the makings of a future high-leverage arm with a fastball that can touch triple digits, but he'll need to improve his control if he's to reach that ceiling.

    • Reds' Tanner Rainey: Optioned to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rainey was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Friday. Rainey made a pair of appearances during his latest stint with the Reds, giving up an incredible 10 runs in a total of just one inning. His season ERA now sits at 24.43 through seven innings. He's given much more reason for optimism at the Triple-A level, though, tossing 28.2 innings with a 1.57 ERA, but even there, his walk rate sits at an untenable 18.3 percent. Austin Brice was recalled in a corresponding move.
