      Giants' Fernando Abad: Promoted to majors

      Fernando Abad had his contract selected from Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.Abad will join the big-league bullpen for the first time all season after posting a combined 2.70 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 55:5 K:BB in 50 innings with Sacramento and Double-A Richmond. The lefty hasn't pitched in the majors since 2017, though he owns a serviceable 3.65 ERA across parts of eight seasons (317.2 innings). To clear room on the roster for Abad, Aramis Garcia was sent to the minors while Kyle Barraclough was designated for assignment.

      Fernando Abad: Receives 80-game suspension

      Fernando Abad was handed an 80-game suspension due to the use of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.Since Abad is currently a free agent, this ban won't kick in until he signs with an organization, which is unlikely to occur after this announcement. The 32-year-old appeared in 48 games for the Red Sox in 2017, but failed to latch on with the Phillies after spending a majority of spring training with the club earlier this year.

      Fernando Abad: Remains free agent

      Fernando Abad never actually came to terms with the Mets on a minor-league contract, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.A press release stated that Abad came to terms with New York at the end of March, but that deal apparently never came to fruition. It's unclear whether he's still close to a deal with the team or not, but for now, he'll remain a free agent. Abad produced a 3.30 ERA in 48 appearances with the Red Sox last season.

      Mets' Fernando Abad: Inks minor-league deal with Mets

      Fernando Abad agreed to a minor-league deal with the New York Mets on Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.Abad will link up with the Mets just days after being released by the Phillies. The veteran reliever spent his 2017 season with the Red Sox, compiling a 3.30 ERA and 37:14 K:BB over 43.2 innings. He'll report to Mets minor-league camp and will likely kick off the season with Triple-A Las Vegas. He's a candidate to be promoted for bullpen reinforcement during the regular season.

      Fernando Abad: Released by Philadelphia

      Fernando Abad was released by the Phillies on Wednesday.Abad joined the organization just over a month ago on a minor-league pact that included an invitation to spring training. He will now look to latch on with a new club after a solid campaign with Boston in 2017 (3.30 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over 43.2 innings of relief).

      Phillies' Fernando Abad: Minors pact with Phillies

      Fernando Abad signed a minor-league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday that includes an invite to spring training, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.The 32-year-old southpaw logged a 3.30 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 43.2 innings last season with the Red Sox, so it's a little surprising he had to settle for a minor-league deal, although there may be incentives if he makes the roster out of camp. The only lefty on the roster currently projected to make the big-league bullpen is Adam Morgan, so Abad has a legitimate chance to break camp with the Phillies and pitch in mid-to-low-leverage situations this season.

      Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Records two outs in relief

      Fernando Abad pitched two-thirds of an inning and walked a batter in Sunday's matchup with the Reds.The 31-year-old left-hander has accrued a 2.93 ERA across 43 innings this season with the Boston Red Sox, improving from a 3.66 ERA in 2016. Despite these solid numbers, Abad is near the back of the bullpen and has pitched mainly in low-leverage situations (33.2 of his 43 innings). He will see very few opportunities as the season ends and the Red Sox make their playoff run.

      Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Seeing slight decrease in strikeouts

      Fernando Abad is holding hitters to a .219 average and has 23 strikeouts in 31 innings this season.The southpaw has pitched well for the Boston Red Sox this season, but he has seen his strikeout percentage drop to 18.6 percent after seeing it hover in the low twenties each of the last three seasons. Despite the success, the pecking order in Boston's bullpen is pretty solidified at this point, and that limits the potential for Abad to move into more high-leverage situations.

      Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Lights out since start of May

      Fernando Abad has a 1.72 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 15.2 innings since the start of May.The veteran left-hander has yet to record a hold this season, but is pitching well in low-leverage situations for the Boston Red Sox. Abad has recorded only 13 strikeouts across 21 innings, but he's pitched well against lefties, as they hold a .214/.258/.357 slash line against him.
