  • Dan Otero: Begins career in baseball ops

    Cleveland recently added Otero to its baseball operations department as an advanced scout, signaling the end of his playing career, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Before spending the 2020 season on the Yankees' restricted list due to presumptive opt out, Otero spent parts of eight seasons in the majors with San Francisco, Oakland and Cleveland. Over 358 career relief appearances, Otero posted a 3.39 ERA across 403.2 innings. Since he turned 36 in February and likely would have had to begin the upcoming season in the minors if he signed with an organization, he's instead decided to transition into an off-field role within the sport.

  • Yankees' Dan Otero: Lands on restricted list

    Otero was placed on the restricted list Tuesday. The reasoning behind the move is unclear, but Otero won't be available for the start of the shortened season and has no official timeline for his return. The 35-year-old joined the Yankees on a minor-league deal with offseason after posting a 4.85 ERA and 1.52 WHIP with the Indians in 2019.

  • Yankees' Dan Otero: Released and re-signed by Yankees

    Otero was released by the Yankees on Sunday but was immediately re-signed to a minor league contract and added to the 60-man player pool. Otero's release and re-signing was likely a procedural move to address a contractual issue. The right-hander may not break camp as a member of the team's 30-man roster, but he should be among the first in line to receive a promotion if the need for a bullpen arm arises.

  • Yankees' Dan Otero: Inks minors deal with Yankees

    Otero signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Monday as a non-roster invitee. Otero spent the previous four seasons with the Indians, but he dealt with right shoulder inflammation for most of the 2019 season and only managed to appear in 29.2 major-league innings, recording a 4.85 ERA and 1.52 WHIP during that time. The right-hander has been less reliable over the past two seasons following solid production in 2016 and 2017. If injuries occur in the Yankees' bullpen, it wouldn't be surprising to see Otero appear in the majors at some point in 2020.

  • Dan Otero: Hits open market

    Otero's club option for 2020 was declined Thursday and he became a free agent, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports. The 34-year-old righty had a 4.85 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 16:3 K:BB in 29.2 innings. At his age and with such a poor strikeout rate, he may struggle to get a big-league deal this offseason.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Activated from IL

    Otero (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day injured list by the Indians on Sunday, Mandy Bell of reports. Otero has been on the injured list since June 2 but has pitched consistently throughout August with Triple-A Columbus. He's looked strong, working 11.1 scoreless innings while racking up eight strikeouts. Prior to hitting the injured list, Otero posted a 4.56 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with the Indians, recording one hold.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Aiming for Sept. 1 return

    Manager Terry Francona is hopeful that Otero (shoulder) will return Sept. 1, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Otero features a dominant 0.90 ERA and has allowed only four hits across 10 innings in nine appearances for Triple-A Columbus. Manager Terry Francona is planning on getting the veteran right-hander back to begin September assuming all goes well until then. With Carlos Carrasco hoping to return around the same time, Cleveland will be adding two right-handed arms to a bullpen that leads the league with a 3.40 ERA.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Set for re-evaluation

    Otero (shoulder) will be re-evaluated Monday before the Indians determine whether he's ready to resume a minor-league rehab assignment, Anthony Castrovince of reports. Otero previously made five rehab appearances across three different affiliates in July before he was shut down a week and a half ago after experiencing an apparent setback. He was able to complete a bullpen session Sunday without incident, so the right-hander looks like he could be ready to resume game action later this week. The righty posted a 4.56 ERA and 1.48 WHIP across 23.2 innings with the Indians before getting shut down June 2 with right shoulder inflammation.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Moved to 60-day IL

    Otero (shoulder) was shifted to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. This move comes after Otero was pulled off his rehab assignment last week after expressing concerns about his recovery from pitching on back-to-back days, according to Joe Noga of An updated timetable for his return has yet to emerge. Yasiel Puig, who was acquired from the Reds as part of a three-team deal Tuesday, will replace Otero on the 40-man roster.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Ready for rehab stint

    Otero (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Short-Season Mahoning Valley on Monday, Mandy Bell of reports. Otero has been on the shelf since June 2 due to right shoulder inflammation, but it's a good sign that he's ready to go out on a rehab stint. He's been out of commission for over a month, so it wouldn't be surprising if he needed at least a few appearances in the minors to get back up to speed.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Headed to IL for first time

    The Indians placed Otero on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right shoulder inflammation, Mandy Bell of reports. Otero will head to the IL for the first time in his eight-year big-league career after apparently succumbing to the shoulder issue during his most recent appearance Thursday against the White Sox, who lit him up for four runs in 1.2 innings. The Tribe recalled Josh Smith from Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding move to provide the big club with an extra long-relief arm.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Signs two-year extension

    Otero signed a two-year extension with the Indians on Tuesday which includes a team option for 2020, Jordan Bastian of reports. The two sides struck a deal last week for 2018, but they reworked things Tuesday, covering Otero's remaining two arb years and possibly a year of free agency. While Otero averaged just 5.7 K/9 last season and struggled against lefties (.364 wOBA), he did a good job of keeping the ball on the ground (63.5 percent) and limiting free passes to right-handers. The 32-year-old will work primarily in the middle innings again next season.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Avoids arbitration with Cleveland

    Otero agreed to a one-year deal for $1.3 million with the Indians on Friday, avoiding arbitration. Otero appeared in 52 games out of the bullpen for the Indians in 2017, posting a 2.85 ERA and 1.20 WHIP over the course of 60 innings. He will slot back into the middle of Cleveland's reliable bullpen, and should be in line for another 60-70 innings of work this upcoming year.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Activated from paternity list

    Otero was activated from the paternity list prior to Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers. He was away from the team for a couple days, but will be available out of the bullpen for the twin bill. Otero notched a 0.87 ERA, 0.58 WHIP and eight strikeouts in 10.1 innings in August.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Hits paternity list

    Otero was placed on the paternity list Wednesday. Otero will be away from the team up to three days, meaning he could miss as many as four contests with the Indians playing doubleheaders Wednesday and Friday. In order to cover for Otero's absence, the Indians recalled Shawn Armstrong from Triple-A Columbus to serve as the 26th man for Wednesday's twin bill.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: To be placed on paternity list

    Otero will be placed on the paternity list prior to Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader, Jordan Bastian of reports. Otero will be replaced on the roster by Ryan Merritt, who is expected to start Game 2. After posting a shiny 1.53 ERA and 0.91 WHIP through 70.2 innings last season, Otero has turned in a less impressive 3.02 ERA and 1.24 WHIP through 50.2 innings this season. He should return to a middle relief role upon his activation.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Struggling as season wears on

    Otero's .353 BAA and 1.68 WHIP since the All-Star break are both worst among all Indians pitchers with at least five appearances since the Midsummer Classic. Otero managed a .271 BAA and 1.31 WHIP during the campaign's first half, a time in which he was being used on a fairly regular basis. Since the break, Otero has given up 17 hits and three walks over 11.2 innings while watching his strikeout rate decline. As a result, the 32-year-old right-hander is being phased out of middle-relief opportunities as the postseason race heats up.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Could start Game 2 on Saturday

    Otero is an option to start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Paul Hoynes of reports. Otero is tentatively in line to make the start, but that could change if he is used out of the bullpen either Friday night or during the matinee of the doubleheader. If he is used in relief before Game 2, southpaw Ryan Merritt would step in to start for him. Otero has a 3.68 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 31 innings of relief this year. He hasn't pitched more than two innings in any outing this season, so he'd likely be on a pitch count, with manager Terry Francona leaning on the bullpen to finish out the contest.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Earns win in relief after rain delay

    Otero (1-0) pitched 2.1 scoreless innings, allowing one hit with one strikeout in Sunday's win over Kansas City. Otero was the first pitcher out of the Cleveland bullpen after a long rain delay forced Trevor Bauer out of the game. He was incredibly efficient, needing just 16 pitches to get through 2.1 innings and earn his first win of the season. Otero is a middle reliever, so if you had him in your lineup, enjoy the bonus victory.

  • Indians' Dan Otero: Settling into 2017

    Otero has settled down after a rough start to 2017, allowing just one run over his last six innings while recording six strikeouts. The veteran right-hander logged just two strikeouts through his first six appearances, but has since gotten on track. Otero has slowly chipped away at his ERA to bring it down to 3.48 through his first 10.1 innings of the campaign. Regardless, he's unlikely to provide much fantasy value considering he's rarely called upon in high-leverage moments.
