Dodgers' Matt Andriese: Assigned to minor-league camp
Andriese was reassigned Monday to minor-league camp by the Dodgers.
Andriese was signed to a minor-league contract back in January with an invitation to spring training, and the right-hander report to the minors to begin the season, assuming there's no opt-out to his deal. The 33-year-old was effective with the Yomiuri Giants in Japan during the 2022 season with a 2.86 ERA over 63 innings.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Matt Andriese: Lands deal with Dodgers
Andriese signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Tuesday.
It's not clear whether he's been given an invitation to major-league spring training. Andriese spent 2022 in Japan with the Yomiuri Giants, posting a 2.86 ERA over 63 innings. The 33-year-old has the ability to start and relieve but has been used mostly out of the bullpen in recent years.... See More ... See Less
Matt Andriese: Headed overseas
Andriese is signing with the Yomiuri Giants of the NPB in Japan, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Andriese pitched for the Red Sox and Mariners in 2021, posting a 5.21 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 48.1 innings. He has pitched nearly exclusively out of the bullpen since 2019 but was primarily a starter earlier in his career. It's unclear how the Giants plan to use Andriese, though he may have the opportunity to stick in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Matt Andriese: Elects free agency
Andriese cleared waivers and elected free agency Thursday.
Andriese was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Tuesday, and he'll hit free agency just before the end of the regular season. The right-hander made 34 appearances with Boston and Seattle this season and recorded a 5.21 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 48.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Matt Andriese: Loses 40-man spot
The Mariners designated Andriese for assignment Tuesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.
He'll cede his spot on the 40-man roster to Matt Brash, who was called up from Double-A Arkansas to serve as a piggyback option behind starter Tyler Anderson in Tuesday's game against the Athletics. Since inking a one-year deal with Seattle five weeks ago, Andriese appeared in eight games out of the bullpen, giving up six runs (three earned) while striking out 12 over 11 frames.... See More ...

Mariners' Matt Andriese: Perfect through two appearances
Andriese, who fired a scoreless seventh inning in an extra-innings loss to the Royals on Friday, has logged two perfect frames during which he's recorded two strikeouts since joining the Mariners on Aug. 22.
The veteran's pair of outings have unfolded the last two nights, with Andriese shining in each. The right-hander brings plenty of starting and long-relief experience to the table, which could make him a serviceable asset for manager Scott Servais in the Mariners' playoff push down the stretch....

Mariners' Matt Andriese: Signs on with Seattle
Andriese signed a one-year contract with the Mariners on Sunday and was added to the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster ahead of Seattle's series finale in Houston.
Seattle wasn't willing to take on the money remaining on Andriese's one-year, $1.85 million contract after Boston designated him for assignment a few days earlier, but the Mariners brought the veteran reliever aboard on what's presumably a more team-friendly deal once he cleared waivers and became a free agent. He'll be a multi-inning option out of the bullpen for Seattle, but expect manager Scott Servais to limit Andriese's usage to lower-leverage spots initially. Andriese submitted a 6.03 ERA and 1.77 WHIP across 26 relief appearances for Boston this season, but the Mariners are likely hoping that his solid 15.3 K-BB% is a better indicator of his performance moving forward....

Matt Andriese: Released by Red Sox
Andriese was let go by Boston on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Andriese failed to get the job done in 37.1 innings of relief for the Red Sox this season, struggling to a 6.03 ERA. His underlying numbers suggested that number was worse than he deserved, though his combination of a 21.5 percent strikeout rate and 6.2 percent walk rate isn't good enough for much more than a low-leverage role. He'll likely be stuck with a minor-league deal if he manages to find a new club before the end of the year.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Booted from roster
The Red Sox reinstated Andriese (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list Tuesday and designated him for assignment.
Andriese looks to be healthy again after he recently completed a three-game rehab assignment, but rather than reporting to Boston, he'll stick around at Triple-A Worcester for the time being while waiting to see how the waiver process plays out. If Andriese goes unclaimed by MLB's other 29 teams, he could continue pitching out of the Worcester bullpen with the hope of earning a call-up to Boston during the final six weeks of the season. Over 37.1 innings in the majors this season, Andriese has posted a 6.03 ERA and 1.77 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Kicks off rehab assignment
Andriese (hamstring) tossed a scoreless sixth inning Sunday in his first rehab appearance for Triple-A Worcester, scattering two hits while striking out one.
Andriese is expected to remain with Worcester and make at least one or two more rehab appearances before being activated from the 10-day injured list. Before being shut down with the hamstring issue in early July, Andriese compiled a 6.03 ERA and 1.77 WHIP across 37.1 innings out of the Boston bullpen this season.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Gets on mound
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Andriese (hamstring) threw off a mound Monday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Cora didn't specify whether Andriese completed a full bullpen session, but the fact that the right-hander has advanced from throwing off flat ground is seemingly a positive sign as he continues his recovery from a right hamstring injury. Once he's able to face hitters in live batting practice, Andriese should head out on a brief minor-league rehab assignment before rejoining Boston's bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Heads to IL
The Red Sox are placing Andriese on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right hamstring injury, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Manager Alex Cora said Andriese was limping after the final pitch of his two-run inning Friday. He will be sidelined until after the All-Star break, at which point he could be demoted to Triple-A due to his abysmal performance the past couple months. Andriese posted a 1.42 ERA in 12.2 innings across nine April appearances, but he has pitched to an 8.39 ERA and 2.11 WHIP in 24.2 innings since. He's also blown three saves and taken two losses since the start of May. The Red Sox have yet to announce a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Gives it up in extras
Andriese (2-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits in a third of an inning Saturday to take the loss in extra innings to the Athletics.
The Red Sox staked Andriese to a two-run lead in the top of the 12th inning, and he gave it all away in just 13 pitches during the bottom half of the frame. The right-hander got off to a brilliant start in April but has gone south since the beginning of May. He has a 7.99 ERA while permitting seven home runs over 23.2 innings in the last 16 games. The downturn could be attributed to usage -- Andriese has gone more than a week without pitching three times since the beginning of June -- as Boston has not needed its go-to multi-inning reliever often. Manager Alex Cora told Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com that Andriese is still needed.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Provides needed length
Andriese allowed one run on three hits and struck out five over three innings in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Astros.
Houston's belligerent lineup chased starter Martin Perez early, so the Red Sox turned to their multi-inning reliever out of the bullpen. This was the sixth time in 19 outings that Andriese has thrown more than two innings. The 31-year-old right-hander has a 4.88 ERA over 27.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Hits rough patch
Andriese (1-2) picked up the loss Monday after allowing three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out two over two-plus innings against Baltimore.
Andriese was well rested and ready to pitch multiple innings when he came on in the sixth inning for starter Martin Perez. The game was tied at one apiece -- but not for long. The first batter he faced, Trey Mancini, took him deep over the center field wall. Andriese was later victimized by a fluky triple off the bat of Cedric Mullens. Andriese has been a convenient pocket knife out of the bullpen, working in a variety of situations, but he's hit a rough patch since the start of May. He's lost twice while allowing seven runs on 11 hits and three walks over his last four outings.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Takes loss Saturday
Andriese (0-1) suffered his first loss Saturday, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one in one inning against Texas.
Andriese had been stellar out of the bullpen in a variety of roles until Saturday's blowup. He entered the game with a 1.42 ERA.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Holds lead in eighth inning
Andriese pitched a perfect eighth inning for his second hold in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Mets.
The eighth inning of a close game is usually a situation for Adam Ottavino, but he had pitched three of the previous four games. Andriese is pitching well in a variety of bullpen roles, permitting just two earned runs and striking out 11 over 12.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Leads bullpen effort
Andriese allowed one unearned run on three hits and struck out two over three innings in Saturday's 7-4 win over the White Sox.
Boston starter Nick Pivetta lasted just 3.2 innings, leaving it to the bullpen to get through the game. After Josh Taylor finished the fourth, Andriese held the White Sox in check until the Red Sox's bats heated up in the eighth inning. The right-hander has been the team's most versatile reliever, logging both effective multi-inning stints and high-leverage appearances in late innings. Andriese has a 1.86 ERA and just one clunker among his six appearances.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Saves extra-inning win
Andriese picked up the save Saturday, striking out one over a scoreless 10th inning in a 6-4 extra-inning win over Baltimore.
This was Boston's first game that was headed toward needing a ninth-inning closer, but Adam Ottavino surrendered a one-run lead by giving up two runs in the eighth inning. When Boston tied the game in the top of the ninth, Matt Barnes, who was going to get a save opportunity, came on and got the game into extra frames. After the Red Sox plated two in the top of the 10th, manager Alex Cora went with Andriese, whose primary role is that of a multi-inning reliever, for the save. Andriese has allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings. Two of his four appearances have lasted more than three outs.... See More ...

Red Sox's Matt Andriese: Beginning year in bullpen
Manager Alex Cora said Andriese rejoined the team Tuesday and is slated to begin the season in the bullpen, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Andriese had been away from the team for only a few days due to COVID-19-related contact-tracing concerns, so he should be ready to go for Opening Day. Though Eduardo Rodriguez (arm) is expected to begin the season on the injured list, the Red Sox are expected to turn to Tanner Houck rather than Andriese to fill in as the fifth starter to begin the season....
