Rockies' Ty Blach: Reaches deal with Rockies
Blach signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Blach pitched in the majors from 2016 to 2019, recording a 4.99 ERA while striking out just 12.7 percent of opposing batters. He missed most of the last two seasons due to Tommy John surgery, returning last in the year to throw 22 rehab innings in the lower minors. His past major-league experience gives him a shot at claiming a roster spot, but he's unlikely to provide much fantasy value even when pitching away from Coors Field.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Shifts rehab to High-A
High-A Aberdeen reinstated Blach (elbow) from its 60-day injured list Wednesday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
After undergoing Tommy John surgery in July 2020 before re-signing with Baltimore on a minor-league deal this spring, Blach was assigned to Aberdeen and placed on the IL prior to the start of the minor-league season. The Orioles are seemingly satisfied with how the 30-year-old southpaw fared during a seven-outing rehab assignment in the rookie-level Florida Complex League, where Blach struck out 10 over eight scoreless frames. Given his prior experience in the majors between 2016 and 2019, Blach likely won't stick around at High-A for long and could eventually settle at Triple-A Norfolk by season's end.... See More ...

Orioles' Ty Blach: Rehabbing in FCL
Blach (elbow) began a rehab assignment with the Orioles' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate and has made five appearances, tossing five innings and allowing an unearned run on one hit and no walks while striking out six.
Blach's 2020 season was wiped out after he underwent Tommy John surgery in mid-July, but he re-signed with the Orioles on a minor-league deal in March and has been rehabbing at the team's spring facility in Florida for the past few months. The southpaw was cleared for game action almost a year after his procedure, and the early returns have been encouraging. The Orioles assigned Blach to High-A Aberdeen coming out of the spring, so he'll presumably settle with that affiliate once he completes his FCL rehab assignment.... See More ... See Less
Ty Blach: Released by Orioles
Blach (elbow) was released by the Orioles on Monday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Blach was already not going to pitch for the Orioles this season or most of the next, as he'll be recovering from Tommy John surgery, a procedure he underwent back in July. He'll now have to go through the rehab process on his own.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
Blach underwent successful Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Blach experienced elbow soreness earlier in the month and ultimately opted for surgery after receiving a pair of opinions. The southpaw is set to all of the 2020 season and likely a good chunk of the 2021 campaign while recovering.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Will undergo surgery
Blach (elbow) is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Blach experienced elbow soreness during Thursday's summer camp workout and had two opinions on the injury over the weekend. After consultation, he'll elect to undergo Tommy John surgery, which will sideline him for the entirety of 2020 and most or all of the 2021 season as well. The southpaw was a long shot to make the Orioles' major-league roster, but he'll now have a lengthy recovery timeline ahead of him before he's healthy enough to return.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Getting second opinion on elbow
Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Sunday that Blach will receive a second opinion on his left elbow injury, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Blach complained of elbow soreness during Thursday's summer camp workout and was sent in for an examination Friday, but his initial test results were apparently inconclusive. As a result, Blach will receive another opinion in the coming days, after which the Orioles should have a better idea of how long he might be sidelined. Blach doesn't possess a spot on the 40-man roster, so he was already looking like a long shot to win a spot in the Orioles' Opening Day bullpen before the elbow injury surfaced.... See More ...

Orioles' Ty Blach: Dealing with elbow issue
Blach experienced some elbow soreness Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Blach is getting his elbow checked out Friday, which should determine the extent of the issue. The veteran lefty is part of the Orioles' 60-man player pool, but he's not on the 40-man roster, so he's not necessarily lined up to play a significant role this season.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Added to 60-man pool
Blach will be a part of the Orioles' 60-man player pool this season.
He is not on the 40-man roster, but Blach is now eligible to provide major-league depth in 2020. The 29-year-old southpaw has a 4.99 ERA in 326.1 career MLB innings.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Outrighted to Triple-A
Blach was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
He will remain in Baltimore's system after logging a 12.00 ERA in 27 innings splitting time between the Orioles and Giants.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Designated for assignment
Blach was designated for assignment by Baltimore on Monday.
Blach recently lost his starting role and will now lose his roster spot as well. It's hard to argue with the Orioles' decision, as the lefty owns a 12.00 ERA and a 20:17 K:BB in 27 innings for San Francisco and Baltimore this season. Eric Hanhold was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Loses rotation spot
The Orioles appear to have shifted Blach to a bullpen role following his Sept. 10 start versus the Dodgers, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
After returning from Triple-A Norfolk at the beginning of the month, Blach made two turns through the rotation, logging 7.1 innings between the outings and giving up eight earned runs on 11 hits and five walks. The Orioles inserted Gabriel Ynoa into the rotation over the weekend in Detroit and don't include Blach among their probable starters for the next four contests, essentially signaling that the soft-tossing lefty will work in relief moving forward....

Orioles' Ty Blach: Roughed up by Dodgers
Blach (1-3) allowed six earned runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out three across 2.1 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Blach managed to retired the first batter of the game but then proceeded to allow six of the next eight batters he faced to reach base. That resulted in four earned runs in the first inning before he allowed a two-run homer to Corey Seager in the third frame to sufficiently sink his outing. Since joining the Orioles, Blach has surrendered 19 earned runs across 16.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Set to start Tuesday
Blach is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Blach will face a familiar foe in the Dodgers after spending the first few seasons of his career with the Giants. The 28-year-old has struggled with a 10.95 ERA, 2.15 WHIP and 17:16 K:BB this season but pitched well in his last start with two runs allowed over five innings.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Earns first victory
Blach (1-2) threw five innings and allowed two runs on two hits and four walks and earned the win in a 4-2 decision over the Rays in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.
Blach shut out the Rays through the first three innings, but was tagged for a two-run homer from Travis d'Arnaud in the fourth. The 28-year-old was lifted after 75 pitches, and has been shaky with his new team. In three appearances with the Orioles since joining the team from the Giants, Blach has allowed 13 earned runs in 14.1 innings with a 12:10 K:BB. Overall, Blach has posted an ugly 10.95 ERA, 2.15 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 24.2 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Starting Game 1 of twin bill
Blach will be recalled from Triple-A Norfolk to start Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rays, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Blach has struggled across three starts with the Orioles since joining the team at the beginning of August, allowing 19 runs (18 earned) while posting a 12:8 K:BB across 13.1 innings. It's unclear if he'll remain in the rotation or head to the bullpen following Tuesday's outing.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Heads to minors
Blach (0-2) took the loss after surrendering seven runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings Friday against the Rays. He was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk after the game, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Blach allowed all seven of his runs in the second inning, resulting in a 7-1 loss for his club. The southpaw has struggled in the big leagues this season, posting a 12.81 ERA and 2.39 WHIP with 15 strikeouts over 19.2 innings. The Orioles won't need a fifth starter until rosters expand in September, so Blach could return to that role next month.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Helps cough up big lead
Blach allowed five runs on five hits with three walks and six strikeouts across 5.1 innings during a no-decision against the Red Sox on Sunday.
The Orioles spotted Blach a six-run lead, but the Red Sox scored 13 of the final 14 runs in the game, five of which came against Blach. The 28-year-old has allowed at least five runs in three of his four outings this season, so obviously that's led to some ugly numbers. He is 0-1 with a 12.06 ERA, 2.30 WHIP and 13 strikeouts with 10 walks in 15.2 innings during 2019.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Ty Blach: Gets another start
Blach is listed as the Orioles' starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.
Blach was called up from Triple-A Norfolk when a sixth rotation member was needed for the Orioles' Aug. 12 doubleheader with the Yankees. Taking the hill in the second game of the twin bill in his Baltimore debut, Blach lasted just four innings, giving up seven runs on seven hits and three walks. That ugly showing apparently won't disqualify him from earning another chance to lock down a rotation spot, though he may need to demonstrate improvement Sunday to earn any future turns....

Orioles' Ty Blach: Gives up seven runs
Blach (0-1) gave up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out four through four innings to take the loss against the Yankees on Monday.
It was a tough day for Blach. The 28-year-old gave up four runs in the first four frames and seemed to settle down with an eight-pitch third inning, but he went on to allow another four runs over the next two innings. Blach was called up for the second game of a doubleheader, so he may be returning to Triple-A after this performance. Blach has a 13.94 ERA with a 7:7 K:BB through 10.1 innings this season....
