Marlins' Mike Morin: Remains off 40-man roster
Morin (elbow) was reinstated from the 45-day injured list and outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday.
Morin suffered a UCL injury in his right elbow in August and missed most of the season as a result of the injury. The right-hander fired four scoreless innings prior to being shut down, but he's expected to become a free agent after his outright assignment.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Mike Morin: Transferred to 45-day IL
Morin (elbow) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Tuesday.
Morin landed on the injured list with a UCL injury in his right elbow Friday. His move to the 45-day injured list means that he will likely miss the remainder of the regular season, and the transaction frees up a spot on the 40-man roster. The right-hander was effective over a limited sample this season, firing four scoreless innings while allowing one hit and one walk. He recorded two strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Mike Morin: Placed on injured list
Morin was placed on the 10-day injured list with a UCL injury in his right elbow Friday.
Morin left Wednesday's game with the injury. While the transaction was made retroactive to Thursday, meaning he'll be eligible to return Aug. 23, it seems unlikely that he'll be able to do so, given that the Marlins' update specified that the injury was to his UCL. The exact nature of the injury is not yet clear. Josh D. Smith was recalled in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Mike Morin: Exits with elbow injury
Morin was removed from Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays with a right elbow injury.
The 29-year-old recorded one out on two pitches before leaving with the injury. Morin hasn't allowed a run through four innings this season, but he's now day-to-day until the specifics of the injury are known.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Mike Morin: Earns win in season debut
Morin (1-0) earned the win Thursday against the Orioles after pitching two scoreless innings out of the bullpen.
Morin didn't allow any hits or walks but he also didn't strike out anyone, needing just 19 pitches (13 strikes) to record six outs. This was the first appearance of the season for the 29-year-old right-hander, who posted a 4.62 ERA in 50.2 relief innings last season between the Twins and Phillies.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Mike Morin: Claimed by Marlins
Morin was claimed off waivers by the Marlins on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Morin is expected to join Miami's big-league roster ahead of their next game, the date of which remains uncertain given the team's coronavirus outbreak. Morin, who was designated for assignment by the Brewers, owns a career 4.65 ERA in 224.2 big-league innings, all of which have come in relief.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Mike Morin: Cast off 40-man
Morin was designated for assignment Sunday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Eric Lauer was activated from the COVID-19 injured list, so the Brewers needed to clear a 40-man roster spot. Morin had not pitched in the first two games of the season.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Mike Morin: Locks up roster spot
Morin will open the season on the Brewers' 30-man roster.
Morin joined the Brewers on a minor-league contract over the offseason, and he showed enough to break camp with the big club. Morin has appeared in 238 big-league games, but he was not particularly effective the last several years, so don't expect him to occupy a key role in the Brewers' bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Mike Morin: Invited to Brewers' camp
Morin was invited to the Brewers' big-league camp Wednesday.
Morin finished last season with a 4.62 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 50.2 innings pitched, the lowest marks since his rookie season in 2014. If the right-hander is able to impress the big-league coaching staff this spring, he is a candidate to provide depth to a Brewers bullpen that projects to include several new faces this season....

Mike Morin: Heads to free agency
Morin refused an outright assignment to the minors Monday and became a free agent.
Morin finished the season with a playable 4.62 ERA despite striking out just 12.4 percent of opposing batters. He's unlikely to have a particularly busy market this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Mike Morin: Gets win in extra innings
Morin (1-0) threw a pair of scoreless innings, walking one and allowing two hits, to earn the win Monday against the Pirates.
Morin was called on to keep the score tied in the 10th inning after Hector Neris blew the save in the ninth. He worked around one baserunner in the 10th and a pair in the 11th to keep the game scoreless before Sean Rodriguez's walkoff homer gave the Phillies the win. Morin's ERA now sits at a solid 3.12 in 40.1 innings with the Phillies and Twins despite a very low 13.1 percent strikeout rate.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Mike Morin: Shipped to Philadelphia
The Phillies acquired Morin from the Twins on Saturday in exchange for cash considerations, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Morin has no minor-league options remaining, so he'll step into the big-league bullpen right away for Philadelphia after being designated for assignment by the Twins earlier this week. Over his 23 outings with Minnesota, the right-hander posted a 3.18 ERA and 0.97 WHIP but struck out only 11 batters across 22.2 innings. The Phillies opened up a spot for Morin on the 40-man roster by shifting Seranthony Dominguez (elbow) to the 60-day injured list.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Mike Morin: Dismissed from 40-man
Morin was designated for assignment by the Twins on Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Morin owns a 3.18 ERA and 0.97 WHIP over 22.2 innings this season, but he has just 11 strikeouts and was rocked for four runs over one inning during his last appearance July 4 against Oakland. That slip-up evidently cost him his roster spot. He'll head to the waivers following this latest move.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Mike Morin: Earns first save of 2019
Morin gave up two hits but recorded his first save of the season in an 8-7 victory against the Angels on Wednesday.
Blake Parker and Taylor Rogers had split the saves coming into the day, but Rogers pitched each of the last two days, and the Twins elected to throw Parker in the eighth. Morin has pitched well, posting a 1.80 ERA and 0.60 WHIP in five innings, but he's been in the majors for only two weeks, so it's premature to think he is going to supplant Parker and Rogers for save opportunities....

Twins' Mike Morin: Called up to bigs
The Twins selected Morin's contract from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Morin had a 2.25 ERA with one save and a 12:3 K:BB ration in 12 innings at Triple-A. He'll be used in middle relief. The journeyman has had strong strikeout rates at Triple-A the past two seasons, but hasn't been able to translate that improvement into success in the majors.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Mike Morin: Sent to minors camp
Morin was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday.
Morin compiled a respectable 4.22 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 10:2 K:BB through 10.2 innings this spring but was always a long shot to break camp with the big club. The right-hander could earn himself a promotion at some point if he impresses in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Mike Morin: Continues strong spring
Morin threw a scoreless inning in Friday's spring training win over Baltimore. He's thrown seven scoreless innings with six strikeouts and one walk this spring.
Morin is a long shot to make the major-league roster, but his strong spring could get him consideration for a promotion early in the spring if he stays hot at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
