Top Andrew Triggs News

  • Andrew Triggs: Becomes free agent

    Triggs became a free agent Monday after refusing an outright assignment to the minors, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Triggs threw just 8.1 innings for the Giants and Red Sox this season, posting a 7.56 ERA and a 7:6 K:BB. It wasn't a particularly compelling comeback after he lost the entirety of 2019 due to a hip injury. Injuries have limited him to just 34.3 innings per year since he debuted back in 2016.

  • Red Sox's Andrew Triggs: Returns from injured list

    Triggs (neck) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

    Triggs wound up missing just two weeks with a pinched nerve in his neck. He hasn't impressed this season, allowing seven runs in 7.1 innings for the Giants and Red Sox, but he could get a chance to improve upon those numbers in one of the final two games of the year. Jeffrey Springs was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Red Sox's Andrew Triggs: Lands on injured list

    Triggs (neck) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right radial nerve irritation, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The 31-year-old was known to be suffering from a pinched nerve in his neck after delivering a scoreless inning Friday, and he's now dealing with a nerve issue in his hand. It's unclear how long Triggs is expected to be sidelined, but he may not pitch again this year with less than two weeks left in the season.

  • Red Sox's Andrew Triggs: Dealing with neck issue

    Triggs is dealing with a pinched nerve in his neck following Friday's loss to the Rays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

    Triggs only tossed one scoreless inning Friday as he allowed one hit and one walk while striking out zero. He didn't factor into the decision. Manager Ron Roenicke said after the game that he wasn't supposed to be used as an opener, but he was unable to remain in the game due to his neck injury. The right-hander will be further evaluated Saturday, and a decision regarding how much time he'll miss could be made once the team knows more about the injury.

  • Red Sox's Andrew Triggs: Starting Friday

    Triggs will start Friday's game against the Rays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Triggs isn't yet an official part of Boston's starting rotation, but he'll make his second start for the team on normal rest at Tropicana Field on Friday. He was effective as he settled for a no-decision Sunday, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four over three innings against the Blue Jays. The right-hander has had mixed results this season, and it's unlikely that he'll be able to go very deep into Friday's start since he hasn't pitched more than three innings in any appearance in 2020.

  • Red Sox's Andrew Triggs: Strikes out four

    Triggs allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four across three innings Sunday against the Blue Jays. He did not factor into the decision.

    Triggs gave up a solo home run to Caleb Joseph in the third inning but held the Blue Jays in check otherwise. It was his second appearance with the Red Sox, and he worked three innings on both occasions. While results have been mixed, he has racked up seven strikeouts and just two walks across six innings. While Triggs is not yet a part of the rotation, he could continue to work multiple innings in each of his outings.

  • Red Sox's Andrew Triggs: Starting Sunday

    Triggs will start Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Steve Hewitt of the Boston Herald reports.

    Triggs allowed three runs on three hits and no walks while striking out three over three innings Wednesday, and he'll return to the mound to start Sunday's contest. The right-hander hasn't allowed fewer than three runs in either of his two appearances this year.

  • Red Sox's Andrew Triggs: Makes team debut

    Triggs (0-2) was credited with the loss Wednesday against the Braves. He allowed three runs on three hits while striking out three in three innings.

    Triggs, who was claimed off waivers from the Giants on Aug. 19, was promoted to the active roster Wednesday. He made his Red Sox debut in a game that began with an opener. Triggs has experience as a starter and will provide starting depth and bulk innings as a reliever.

  • Red Sox's Andrew Triggs: Joins major-league roster

    Triggs was recalled from the Red Sox's alternate training site Wednesday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

    Triggs was sent to Pawtucket when he was claimed off waivers by the Red Sox in the middle of August, but he'll join the major-league pitching staff after Kyle Hart (hip) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. Triggs made one relief appearance for the Giants this season and allowed three runs on no hits and three walks over one-third of an inning.

  • Red Sox's Andrew Triggs: Claimed by Boston

    Triggs was claimed off waivers by Boston on Wednesday and optioned to the team's alternate training site.

    Triggs made just a single appearance for the Giants this season, and it couldn't have gone much worse, as he walked three batters and allowed three runs while recording just a single out. While he'll almost certainly improve on his 81.00 ERA and his 9.00 WHIP if he makes a few appearances for his new team, he wasn't particularly good last year, either, struggling to a 5.23 ERA in nine starts for Oakland.

  • Giants' Andrew Triggs: Removed from 40-man roster

    Triggs was designated for assignment by the Giants on Wednesday.

    Triggs was working at the Giants' alternate training site over the past several days, but he'll now be removed from the 40-man roster. The right-hander made one relief appearance in the majors this year, allowing three runs on no hits and three walks while recording just one out.

  • Giants' Andrew Triggs: Optioned to alternate camp

    Triggs was optioned to the Giants' alternate training site Monday.

    Triggs was recalled by the Giants on Sunday and made a relief appearance against the Rangers. He struggled mightily with control as he allowed three runs on no hits and three walks while striking out zero and recording one out. As a result, he was charged with the loss and will also lose his 30-man roster spot. The 31-year-old will remain on the taxi squad for the team's upcoming series in Colorado. Left-hander Andrew Suarez was recalled from the alternate training site in a corresponding move.

  • Giants' Andrew Triggs: Contract selected by San Fran

    Triggs had his contract selected by the Giants on Sunday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The 31-year-old will join the 40-man and active rosters with Drew Smyly (finger) heading to the injured list. Triggs last appeared in the majors with Oakland in 2018 and had a 5.23 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in nine starts, though he should work out of the bullpen with San Francisco.

  • Giants' Andrew Triggs: Makes 60-man roster

    Triggs made the Giants' 60-man roster.

    He is not on the 40-man roster but will be available to provide bullpen depth this season. The 31-year-old righty had a lost 2019 season due to a hip injury. Triggs had a 5.23 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 41.1 innings (nine starts) for the A's in 2018.

  • Giants' Andrew Triggs: Slated to pitch Thursday

    Triggs (hip) is listed as an available relief option for Thursday's Cactus League game against the Indians, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Triggs looks to be fully healthy again after he didn't pitch from mid-April onward last season due to a strained hip. The right-hander linked up with the Giants on a minor-league deal last September and has looked sharp through his first three Cactus League appearances, tossing three perfect frames while striking out four. Though he has prior MLB starting experience from his time with the Athletics, Triggs appears set to work exclusively out of the bullpen for San Francisco in 2020. If he's unable to win a relief job with the big club during camp, Triggs will likely report to Triple-A Sacramento to begin the season.

  • Giants' Andrew Triggs: Signs with Giants

    Triggs (hip) signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Thursday, Baseball America reports.

    The deal likely covers 2020 as well, as Triggs is still recovering from a hip injury that has kept him on the shelf since mid-April. Across three big-league seasons with the Athletics (2016-18), the 30-year-old right-hander owns a career 4.53 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 148:50 K:BB in 163 innings (45 appearances, 27 starts).

  • Andrew Triggs: Released by Athletics

    Triggs (hip) was released by the Athletics on Thursday.

    Triggs hasn't pitched since April due to a hip injury, so he'll need to prove his health before he gets a shot elsewhere.

  • Athletics' Andrew Triggs: Designated for assignment

    Triggs (hip) was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Wednesday.

    The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Tanner Roark, acquired in a trade from the Reds in a corresponding move. Triggs hasn't pitched since mid-April due to a strained hip. Between the injury, his age (30) and his mediocre 4.53 career ERA, he's not particularly likely to be claimed off waivers.

  • Athletics' Andrew Triggs: Return timetable still unclear

    Triggs (hip), who's been sidelined at Triple-A Las Vegas since April 12, remains without a timetable for return, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The veteran right-hander was expected to convert back to a relief role in the minors this season, but he logged all of 2.2 innings over three appearances with the Aviators before the injury bug struck. Triggs would have also potentially served as a versatile option in a pinch at the major-league level this season, considering he logged 45 appearances (27 starts) across parts of three campaigns with the Athletics from 2016-2018.
