  • Brian Flynn: Granted free agency

    Flynn was granted free agency by the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Flynn signed a minor-league deal with the Rangers in December as a non-roster invitee, but he was left off the roster for the team's summer camp and was granted his release Tuesday. The southpaw made 11 appearances (one start) with the Royals last season, posting a 5.22 ERA and 1.88 WHIP over 29.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Brian Flynn: Won't be on 60-man roster

    Flynn was informed Friday that he won't be on the Rangers' 60-man roster, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Flynn made 11 appearances for the Royals in 2019 prior to be designated for assignment, and he posted a 5.22 ERA and 22:17 K:BB prior to heading to Triple-A Omaha. He signed a minor-league deal with the Rangers during the offseason and was invited to major-league camp in the spring, but he won't be part of the active roster to begin the abbreviated 2020 campaign.

  • Rangers' Brian Flynn: Sent to minor-league camp

    Flynn was assigned to minor-league camp Wednesday.

    Flynn was in camp competing for a bullpen spot as a non-roster invitee but won't be winning one, at least not to start the season. With a career 4.41 ERA and a 16.2 percent strikeout rate, he's unlikely to pitch in a high-leverage role if he does eventually crack the big-league roster.

  • Rangers' Brian Flynn: Signs with Rangers

    Flynn signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Monday.

    Flynn will receive an invitation to big-league camp as part of the deal. In 29.1 innings for the Royals last season, he struggled to a 5.22 ERA and a 22:17 K:BB.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Sent outright to Triple-A

    Flynn cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.

    Flynn was designated for assignment by Kansas City on Friday, and after failing to draw interest while on waivers, he'll be assigned to Triple-A. He owns a 3.57 ERA and 1.49 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 22.2 innings this season for the Storm Chasers.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Designated for assignment

    Flynn was designated for assignment by the Royals on Friday.

    Flynn has struggled mightily in a trio of appearances since the All-Star break, compiling an unsightly 12.86 ERA, 2.71 WHIP and 5:4 K:BB in seven innings. As such, the Royals decided to drop the 29-year-old southpaw from their roster, recalling fellow lefty Richard Lovelady to take his place.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Struggles in loss

    Flynn (2-1) gave up seven runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out three through two innings to take the loss against the Tigers on Sunday.

    Flynn allowed one run in his first two innings before allowing four hits and hitting two batters without recording an out in the third inning. The 29-year-old was put in a tough situation, making his first start in the majors since 2016 and given minimal time to prepare for a spot start after Homer Bailey was traded to Oakland less than an hour before his scheduled start. Flynn has a 2-1 record with a 5.18 ERA through 24.1 innings this season.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Called on for spot start

    Flynn is slated to start Sunday's game against the Tigers after Homer Bailey (undisclosed) was a late scratch, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    The Royals announced Bailey was unavailable just over a half hour prior to the series finale, leaving Flynn with minimal time to prepare for his first big-league start since 2016. Flynn has topped out at four innings and 78 pitches over his eight appearances in the majors this season, so those likely represent the upper bounds of his workload for the spot start.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Mops up in loss

    Flynn was charged with three runs on seven hits and three walks over four innings of relief in Monday's 11-4 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Flynn wasn't really able to stop the bleeding for the Royals as Toronto finished with a season-high 18 hits, but he at least saved the rest of the bullpen from overuse with starter Glenn Sparkman lasting only three innings. The Royals will continue to deploy the lefty as a mop-up man in relief, a role that won't lend itself to much fantasy utility.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Activated from IL

    Flynn (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.

    He has been sidelined all season with an elbow issue but is ready to rejoin the big-league bullpen. Richard Lovelady was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Rehab beginning Wednesday

    Flynn (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    A sprained left UCL has kept Flynn out since late in spring training. It's not yet clear how long his rehab assignment is expected to last.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Shifts to IL

    The Royals placed Flynn (elbow) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Dealing with elbow issue

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Staying put in Kansas City

    Flynn signed a one-year contract with the Royals on Thursday, avoiding arbitration.

    Flynn spent the 2018 campaign as a middle reliever for the Royals, posting a 4.04 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 47:35 K:BB across 75.2 innings. The 28-year-old righty figures to fill a similar role in Kansas City's bullpen in 2019.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Set for spring debut

    Flynn (groin) is listed as the starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Giants.

    Flynn is fully healthy and set to make his 2018 Cactus League debut after ending the 2017 season on the 60-day disabled list due to a groin strain. The 27-year-old, who posted a 5.40 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 50 innings with Triple-A Omaha last season, will look to earn a low-leverage bullpen gig with an impressive showing in camp.

  • Royals' Brian Flynn: Transferred to 60-day DL

    Flynn (groin) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday.

    This puts an end to Flynn's 2017 campaign. He only made one appearance with the big-league club this year and posted a 5.40 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 50 innings at Triple-A.
