  • Bailey signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Tuesday. Bailey was let go by Minnesota in September of 2020, and he'll report to Triple-A Las Vegas going forward. The right-hander didn't appear with a team during spring training, but he made the roster for Team USA during the Olympic qualifying tournament. The 35-year-old has made 33 major-league starts across the last two seasons, and he posted a 4.52 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 171.1 innings during that time.

  • The Twins released Bailey on Saturday. Minnesota signed Bailey to a one-year, $7 million deal this offseason with the hope that he would step in as a capable fifth starter, but a biceps injury essentially wiped out his 2020 campaign. He was able to return from the 45-day injured list last week and gave up one run over three innings in a spot start, but since Bailey wasn't a serious candidate to make the Twins' postseason roster, the team opted to cut him loose. He's now free to sign with another organization and should get the chance to compete for a rotation else elsewhere next spring.

  • Bailey was designated for assignment by the Twins on Friday. Bailey made just two starts for the Twins this season, spending the majority of the campaign recovering from biceps tendinitis. While he's healthy now, he won't be needed against for the rest of the season and isn't expected to play a role in the playoffs, so the Twins will give his roster spot to Edwar Colina, whose contract was purchased in a corresponding move.

  • Bailey didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's contest between the Tigers and the Twins. He allowed one run on two hits and a walk while fanning three across three innings. Bailey was activated from the 45-day injured list Tuesday and, as expected, he didn't go deep into the game -- this was just his second appearance of the 2020 season. It remains to be seen what role Bailey will have with the Twins during the playoffs, but it seems likely we see him come out of the bullpen since he spent most of the season sidelined with biceps tendinitis.

  • Bailey (biceps) was activated from the 45-day injured list Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Bailey made just a single start this season before being shut down by biceps tendinitis. He'll head straight into the rotation and will start Tuesday against the Tigers, but it's not clear how deep into the game he'll be allowed to pitch in his first game back from an extended absence. Sean Poppen was optioned in a corresponding move.
