Phillies' Fernando Salas: Designated for assignment
Salas was designated for assignment Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Salas was added to the 40-man roster Thursday, but his time in Philadelphia was short-lived. He made two appearances in his most recent stint with the club, allowing one earned run and five hits across 1.2 innings of work.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Fernando Salas: Added to 40-man, active rosters
The Phillies selected Salas' contract from Triple-A Lehigh Valley ahead of Thursday's game against the Dodgers.
Philadelphia already had an existing opening on the 40-man roster, so no corresponding transaction was needed to clear room for Salas. He and Cole Irvin will report to the Philadelphia bullpen, offering the big club a pair of fresh arms after five relievers were needed to cover the final 6.2 innings of Wednesday's 7-2 loss. Two of those relievers -- Austin Davis and Edgar Garcia -- were sent down to Triple-A to open up spots on the active roster for Salas and Irvin.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Fernando Salas: Outrighted to Triple-A
The Phillies outrighted Salas to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
As anticipated, the well-traveled reliever went unclaimed off waivers after being designated for assignment earlier in the weekend. He'll stick around in the organization as bullpen depth at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Fernando Salas: DFA'd by Philly
Salas was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Friday.
Salas had his contract selected by the Phillies on Monday and gave up one run on three hits during his lone appearance. The move was made to make room on the 40-man roster for the return of Tommy Hunter (elbow) from the 60-day injured list.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Fernando Salas: Contract selected by Phillies
Salas' contract was selected by the Phillies on Monday.
Salas has nine big-league innings under his belt, posting a career 3.90 ERA. He hasn't recorded an ERA below 4.50 since 2017, however. The 34-year-old opened the season in the Mexican league before joining the Phillies on a minor-league deal. Enyel De Los Santos was optioned to clear a spot on the 25-man roster, while Andrew McCutchen (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list to clear a spot on the 40-man.... See More ... See Less
Fernando Salas: Let go by Braves
Salas was released by Atlanta on Monday.
Salas inked a minor-league deal with the Braves on July 16, but he lasted less than a month with his new team. He allowed eight runs on 14 hits while striking out nine across six innings out of the bullpen at Triple-A Gwinnett.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Fernando Salas: Joins Atlanta on minor-league deal
Salas signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Monday and was assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Salas had been with Arizona all season, posting a mediocre 4.50 ERA in 40 innings, but was released Monday. He'll have a chance to work his was back to the big leagues with the Braves, though he'll likely be in a low-leverage role if and when he makes it.... See More ... See Less
Fernando Salas: Cut loose by Arizona
The Diamondbacks released Salas on Monday.
After being designated for assignment over the weekend, Salas passed through waivers unclaimed, and the Diamondbacks apparently had no interest in stashing him in the minors. Salas is now a free agent and will likely look for an opportunity with a team that can present him with the easiest path back to the big leagues.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Fernando Salas: Roster casualty
Salas was designated for assignment on Friday.
Randall Delgado (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day disabled list, so the Diamondbacks needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, and Salas was the casualty. He had a 4.50 ERA and just 30 strikeouts in 40 innings out of the big-league bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Fernando Salas: Cedes run in relief
Salas gave up a run on two hits and a walk over one inning of relief in Sunday's 9-6 loss to the Giants.
Salas has been a part of eight decisions out of the bullpen this season and has notched four wins, but beyond that, he's not offering much from a fantasy perspective. His 6.8 K/9 is decidedly below average for a reliever, and his 3.72 ERA and 1.27 WHIP aren't nearly good enough to move the needle much, even in NL-only formats. He'll continue to see most of his appearances for the Diamondbacks in middle relief or mop-up situations.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Fernando Salas: Notches win in relief
Salas recorded his fourth win of the season after giving up one run in 1.1 innings in Tuesday's 13-8 victory over the Pirates.
Salas has already factored into eight decisions through 30 relief appearances this season, but aside from the four wins, there isn't much in his profile to get excited about from a fantasy standpoint. He's striking out only 7.2 batters per nine innings and has proven far too hittable, with opposing batters slashing .326/.407/.732 against him.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Fernando Salas: Records four outs Monday
Salas tossed 1.1 scoreless innings of relief in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Brewers. He gave up one hit and struck out two.
After surrendering 10 runs over a five-game span earlier this month, Salas seems to have righted the ship of late with three consecutive scoreless appearances. That being said, Salas' flyball tendencies and mediocre strikeout rate make him a fairly volatile reliever, so don't expect manager Torey Lovullo to regularly rely on the 32-year-old in high-leverage spots....

Diamondbacks' Fernando Salas: Collects hold in Tuesday's win
Salas notched his second hold of the season after retiring both of the batters he faced Tuesday in the Diamondbacks' 8-5 win over the Dodgers in 12 innings.
Salas was the first of eight relievers to take the hill for the Diamondbacks on the night, coming on for starter Zack Godley with two outs and one on in the sixth inning. After striking out Austin Barnes to end the threat, Salas came back out for the bottom of the seventh and induced a Chris Taylor flyout before giving way to Jorge De La Rosa for a lefty-on-lefty matchup. Salas is expected to see most of his use this season in the middle innings, so don't expect him to regularly be in the mix for holds.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Fernando Salas: Becoming trusted bullpen arm
Salas gave up a hit and struck out a batter during a scoreless seventh inning in the Diamondbacks' 9-1 win over the Dodgers on Saturday.
With four consecutive scoreless appearances and a 1.69 ERA and 0.94 WHIP over 10.2 innings this season, Salas has been a dependable relief arm through the first two-plus weeks of the campaign. While Brad Boxberger, Archie Bradley and Yoshihisa Hirano are the clear top three relievers in the bullpen, Salas is probably the next man in the pecking order and will continue to see ample usage in middle relief. Though he's already picked up two wins, Salas doesn't profile as a particularly intriguing fantasy option due to his low strikeout rate and the issues he has had with limiting home runs in past seasons....

Diamondbacks' Fernando Salas: Picks up win in extra innings
Salas was credited with the win in the Diamondbacks' 8-7 victory Monday over the Dodgers in 15 innings. He tossed the final three frames for Arizona, giving up one run on three hits and two walks.
Salas was on the hook for the loss after giving up an RBI single to Chase Utley in the top half of the 15th, but the right-hander's teammates bailed him out with two runs in the bottom of the inning to get him into the win column. After throwing 84 pitches over the past three days, Salas seems unlikely to be available for the final two games of Arizona's series with Los Angeles.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Fernando Salas: Takes loss in relief Saturday
Salas gave up a tie-breaking solo home run to Charlie Blackmon during his two innings of relief to take the loss Saturday against the Rockies.
The eighth-inning home run -- Blackmon's second solo blast of the night -- was the only mistake Salas made, as the right-hander retired each of the other six batters he faced. After a strong spring, Salas seems to have earned the trust of manager Torey Lovullo in the later innings, but the 32-year-old could quickly fall down the bullpen pecking order if he's unable to curb his issues with the long ball. Salas served up seven home runs across 58.2 innings with the Mets and Angels in 2017.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Fernando Salas: Contract selected
Salas had his contract selected by the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Salas signed a minor-league contract with Arizona in January but has impressed enough in camp to earn a spot on the 40-man roster. He's allowed just one run in 10 innings of Cactus League action. The veteran righty is likely to serve a low-leverage role for the Diamondbacks this season. In a corresponding move, Albert Suarez was designated for assignment.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Fernando Salas: Agrees to minor-league deal with Arizona
Salas signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Monday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.
Salas struggled during the 2017 season. His 5.22 ERA and 1.52 WHIP, which were built over 61 games (58.2 innings) with the Mets and Angels, were the highest marks of his career. Should he appear in the majors with Arizona this coming season, he'll be in line to see low-leverage situations.... See More ... See Less
