  • Buddy Baumann: Let go by O's

    The Orioles released Baumann on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    The 34-year-old southpaw linked up with the Orioles on a minor-league deal March 7, but after he served up three earned runs over 1.1 innings across three Grapefruit League appearances, the organization elected to part ways with him. Baumann, who last appeared in the majors in 2018, previously announced his retirement in 2019 before reviving his career after a two-year hiatus. Now a free agent again, Baumann will have to settle for a minor-league deal with another organization if he wants to keep playing.

  • Orioles' Buddy Baumann: Signs with Orioles

    Baumann signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Baumann hasn't pitched in the minors since the 2018 campaign, but he'll have a chance to carve out a role with Baltimore in 2022. The southpaw has made 38 relief appearances in the majors between 2016 and 2018, and he posted a 5.58 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 30.2 innings during that time.

  • Mets' Buddy Baumann: Returns to Triple-A

    Baumann cleared waivers and was assigned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Baumann was designated for assignment by the Mets on Tuesday after allowing 13 runs (10 earned) across 3.1 innings between the Padres and Mets in 2018. The 30-year-old has fared much better at Triple-A this season, posting a 1.29 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 18 strikeouts across 14 innings.

  • Mets' Buddy Baumann: Designated for assignment

    Baumann was designated for assignment by the Mets on Tuesday.

    The Mets needed to clear a spot on their active and 40-man rosters for the return of Anthony Swarzak, and Baumann was the choice to go. This move isn't all too surprising, as the 30-year-old allowed a whopping eight runs across three innings for the Mets this season. He'll now be subjected to waivers.

  • Mets' Buddy Baumann: Brought back to majors

    Baumann was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

    Baumann will join the Mets to offer a fresh arm out of the bullpen after starter Steven Matz (finger) lasted just three innings during Tuesday's loss to the Braves. The 30-year-old has allowed eight runs (five earned) across 2.1 big-league innings between the Padres and Mets this season, so he'll be limited to low-leverage situations during his time in the majors.

  • Mets' Buddy Baumann: Returns to Triple-A

    Baumann was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.

    Baumann was recalled from Las Vegas on Tuesday and allowed three runs on three hits over two innings during Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays. The 30-year-old allowed eight runs (five earned) across 2.1 innings during his two stints with the Mets this season.

  • Mets' Buddy Baumann: Recalled from Triple-A

    Baumann was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Jerry Blevins was placed on the paternity list, which left the Mets with a need for a left-handed option in the bullpen. In his lone major-league appearance this season, Baumann only recorded one out while allowing two runs and walking two.

  • Mets' Buddy Baumann: Heads back to minors

    Baumann was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Baumann was recalled on Friday but was unavailable as he served his one-game suspension for his involvement in the Padres' scuffle with the Rockies last season. His demotion opens up a roster spot for Jacob deGrom (elbow) to return from the disabled list.

  • Mets' Buddy Baumann: Officially recalled; will serve suspension Friday

    Baumann will be unavailable for Friday's game as he serves a one-game suspension after being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Baumann was handed the suspension last year due to his role in a mid-April bench-clearing brawl versus the Rockies while he was a member of the Padres. He will be available out of the bullpen during Saturday's game.

  • Mets' Buddy Baumann: To join Mets on Friday

    Baumann will be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

    With Hansel Robles headed to the disabled list (knee), Baumann will take his spot on the active roster ahead of Friday's series opener in Philadelphia. The club will officially recall Baumann in the coming hours. He's only appeared in one major-league game in 2018, which came when he was a member of the Padres on April 11. Over nine outings in Triple-A, the southpaw has posted a spotless 0.00 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with a 12:7 K:BB in 10 innings of relief.

  • Mets' Buddy Baumann: Plucked by Mets

    Baumann was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Friday.

    The southpaw was designated for assignment by the Padres on Tuesday, but it didn't take him long to find a new organization. Baumann will report to Triple-A Las Vegas to start, but given that the Mets only have one other left-handed pitcher on the active roster, he could find his way to New York sooner rather than later. David Wright (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list to clear a 40-man roster spot for Baumann.

  • Padres' Buddy Baumann: Designated for assignment

    Baumann was designated for assignment Tuesday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Baumann was removed from the 40-man roster in order to clear space for Eric Lauer, who will be making his major-league debut Tuesday. Baumann has pitched one-third of an inning for the Padres so far this season, allowing five runs, two of them earned, and walking a pair of batters.

  • Padres' Buddy Baumann: Suspended one game

    Baumann was suspended for one game due to his role in Wednesday's bench-clearing brawl with Colorado, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    At this point, there has been no word as to whether Baumann will appeal the suspension, but since the 30-year-old was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday, he won't be able to serve the sentence until he's back with the major-league club in the future. Expect to see him return to the Padres in the near future in a low-leverage relief role.

  • Padres' Buddy Baumann: Returns to minors

    The Padres optioned Baumann to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.

    Baumann was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Monday and earned the loss Wednesday by allowing five runs (two earned) while recording only one out. The 30-year-old pitched well during a brief stint in the majors in 2017 and could have another opportunity later this season.

  • Padres' Buddy Baumann: Back in big leagues

    Baumann was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

    With Kirby Yates (ankle) headed to the DL, the Padres needed another arm for the bullpen. Baumann just missed out on an Opening Day roster spot, so he made for a logical choice to be recalled. The southpaw pitched well in a brief MLB stint last year, posting a 2.55 ERA and a 21:7 K:BB in 17.2 innings pitched.

  • Padres' Buddy Baumann: Optioned to Triple-A El Paso

    Baumann failed to make the Opening Day roster and will be sent to Triple-A El Paso, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Baumann just missed out on a spot in the Padres' bullpen and will serve as organizational depth moving forward. He appeared in 23 games for the major-league team last season, posting a 2.55 ERA and 2.02 WHIP over 17.2 innings of relief.

  • Padres' Buddy Baumann: Vying for MLB bullpen role

    Baumann is in the mix for one of the Padres' final bullpen slots, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    The 30-year-old has little big-league experience to his name despite his age. That said, he performed well during a 17.2-frame stint in San Diego last season, producing a 2.55 ERA with a 21:7 K:BB. Baumann seems to have a leg up on the host of competitors at this point due to his late-season success in 2017, but he'll still need to put together a strong Cactus League showing to prove his previous campaign wasn't just a fluke.
