Angels' Touki Toussaint: Optioned to Triple-A
Toussaint was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
Toussaint will be sent down to the minors as a corresponding move to the return of Michael Lorenzen from the injured list. The 26-year-old righty holds a 4.62 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season and could make a return to the big leagues if the Angels' pitching depth takes a hit before the end of the season.... See More ...

Angels' Touki Toussaint: Works out of bullpen
Toussaint retired two batters and was charged with two earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out one during his relief appearance in Tuesday's 11-1 loss to the Rays.
Though Angels interim manager Phil Nevin never made a formal announcement that Toussaint was removed from the rotation, it became evident that the right-hander would head to the bullpen when Mike Mayers was named the starter for Wednesday's game in Tampa Bay. Toussaint's demotion from the starting role came after he was blitzed for four earned runs on three hits and four walks over 2.2 innings his last time out Aug. 17 against the Mariners....

Angels' Touki Toussaint: Allows four runs in loss
Toussaint (1-1) took the loss against the Mariners on Wednesday, allowing four runs on three hits while striking out three and walking four over 2.2 innings.
Toussaint tossed 34 of 62 pitches for strikes across 2.2 frames allowing seven baserunners and four earned runs. After allowing four runs in his previous 13.1 innings, this was a step in the wrong direction for the 26-year-old righty, who is attempting to lock down his spot in the rotation. The rough outing ballooned his ERA from 2.70 to 4.50.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Touki Toussaint: Rewarded with another start
Toussaint is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Unsurprisingly, Toussaint will pick up a second straight turn through the rotation after he dazzled in his outing Aug. 10 in Oakland, when he struck out six over five scoreless innings while taking a no-decision. Though Toussaint has shown the ability to make bats miss over parts of five seasons in the majors, a bloated 13.3 percent career walk rate has prevented him from finding much sustained success as a starter....

Angels' Touki Toussaint: Five shutout innings
Toussaint allowed two hits and two walks while striking out six across five scoreless innings Wednesday against the Athletics. He did not factor into the decision.
Toussaint has thrown at least four innings in each of his last two outings, but Wednesday marked his first official start. He took advantage of the opportunity, holding the Athletics to only two singles and two walks while generating nine swinging strikes on 71 total pitches. Toussaint has walked nine batters across 13.1 innings in the big leagues this season, but he has otherwise made a strong case to stick in the Angels' rotation moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Touki Toussaint: Getting start Wednesday
Toussaint is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
The Angels have yet to permanently settle on a sixth starter, but Toussaint will get the latest chance to stake his claim to the role after the Halos optioned Janson Junk to Triple-A Salt Lake over the weekend. Los Angeles also recently deployed a pairing of Jaime Barria and Mike Mayers in a tandem start last weekend, and either of those two pitchers could get a look in the rotation at some point if Toussaint isn't able to capitalize on Wednesday's start. Toussaint has worked in long relief in both of his first two outings with the Angels, covering 8.1 innings in total and striking out nine while allowing four earned runs on four hits and seven walks....

Angels' Touki Toussaint: Works in long relief Thursday
Toussaint pitched in long relief during Thursday's 8-7 loss to the Athletics, covering 4.1 innings and striking out six while allowing two earned runs on two hits and five walks.
According to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register, the Angels listed Toussaint as their starting pitcher for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader in Seattle, but that's likely off the table after he made a 85-pitch relief appearance two days before the scheduled start. The impromptu outing came about after starter Janson Junk lasted just 2.1 innings Thursday before departing, prompting the Angels to summon Toussaint out of the bullpen to provide length....

Angels' Touki Toussaint: Slated to start Saturday
Toussaint is expected to start Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mariners, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Toussaint made his debut for the Angels last weekend and allowed two runs across four innings of long relief, and he'll make a spot start in Saturday's twin bill. Another decent showing could keep the 26-year-old in the mix for future starts after the departure of Noah Syndergaard at the trade deadline.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Touki Toussaint: Earns win in Halos debut
Toussaint (1-0) allowed two runs on two hits and two walks with three strikeouts in four innings of relief, earning the win Saturday over the Rangers.
If Saturday's game was an audition for one spot in the rotation, Toussaint fared better than starter Chase Silseth. Toussaint's lone mistake was a two-run home run to Meibrys Viloria in the sixth inning, though the Angels rallied ahead with a five-run eighth to put the 26-year-old righty in line for the win. Toussaint made 15 of his 18 major-league appearances the previous two seasons as a starter, though he's yet to really establish himself. The Angels have a high number of pitchers stretched out to a starter's workload, but few have really seized the chance to hold down a spot at the back end of the team's six-man rotation. Until stated otherwise, Toussaint can be considered a multi-inning reliever with the potential to fill in as a spot starter.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Touki Toussaint: Called up Saturday
Toussaint was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.
Toussaint was traded from Atlanta to the Angels in early July and posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in eight innings over three starts in Salt Lake. Although the right-hander has served mainly as a starter over the last two years, he should be a multi-inning relief option in the Angels' bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Touki Toussaint: Traded to Angels
Toussaint was traded from Atlanta to the Angels in exchange for cash considerations Sunday.
Toussaint was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Saturday, but he'll quickly find a spot on the Angels' 40-man roster. The right-hander was once a prized prospect but will need to prove himself at Triple-A Salt Lake after he posted a 6.26 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 41.2 innings over 13 appearances (eight starts) in the minors to begin the year....

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Designated for assignment
Atlanta designated Toussaint for assignment Saturday.
Toussaint was once a big-time prospect, and he showed flashes in the big leagues as recently as last season, but the right-hander has struggled to the tune of a 6.26 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 41.2 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett this season. The Atlanta front office lost patience, but Toussaint is still just 26 years old, so he may be appealing to another team as a reclamation project.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Touki Toussaint: Sent back to Triple-A
Toussaint was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.
Toussaint spent just two days on the big-league roster and didn't get into a game. He'll head back to Triple-A to await his next chance, a level where he's struck out 16 batters in 8.2 innings across a pair of starts.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Touki Toussaint: Moves up to majors
Atlanta recalled Toussaint from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.
Toussaint and Dylan Lee will both join Atlanta in Los Angeles for the second game of the team's series with the Dodgers, giving the bullpen a fresh pair of arms after starter Huascar Ynoa lasted just 3.2 innings in Monday's 7-4 loss. Ynoa was demoted to Gwinnett in a corresponding move, but Toussaint isn't expected to get a look in the rotation in his place. Instead, Atlanta will likely condense from a six-man rotation to a five-man setup, with Kyle Wright and Bryce Elder occupying the back-end spots.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Touki Toussaint: Beginning year at Gwinnett
Atlanta optioned Toussaint to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.
According to Jeff Schultz of The Athletic, manager Brian Snitker said that Atlanta didn't have enough innings available for Toussaint at the big-league level, so the right-hander will continue to stay stretched out at Gwinnett to begin the season. He'll likely be one of Atlanta's top internal candidates to step into the MLB rotation should the club lose a starter to injury.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Touki Toussaint: Sent to Triple-A
Toussaint (personal) was activated from the bereavement list Sunday and optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Toussaint spent the past few days on the bereavement list following the death of his father, and he'll now make his way to the minors. The 25-year-old has made 10 starts for Atlanta this season but was shifted to the bullpen just before being placed on the bereavement list.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Touki Toussaint: Placed on bereavement list
Toussaint was placed on the bereavement list Wednesday.
Toussaint has recently shifted to a bullpen role, and he'll now miss between three and seven games following his placement on the bereavement list due to the recent passing of his father. The team will likely have another bullpen game against the Padres on Sunday, when the fifth spot in Atlanta's rotation comes up again.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Touki Toussaint: Working out of bullpen
Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said Toussaint will be available out of the bullpen behind opening pitcher Jesse Chavez in Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
Snitker didn't explicitly say that Toussaint lost his rotation spot, but that appears to be the implication, given that he hasn't pitched since being tagged for four runs on five hits and three walks in four innings in his last start Sept. 14 versus the Rockies. Toussaint won't necessarily work as a primary pitcher behind Chavez either, as Snitker termed Tuesday's contest as a bullpen day since Atlanta will have its full complement of relievers available. Atlanta will have a need for a fifth starter again Sunday in San Diego, but the early expectation is that the team will get by with another bullpen game rather than reinserting Toussaint into the rotation....

Braves' Touki Toussaint: Ineffective once again Tuesday
Toussaint (3-3) allowed four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five over four innings to take a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.
Toussaint pitched a clean first but had some trouble in the second. He started off the inning by allowing a solo home run to Trevor Story and surrendered one more run on a walk and a pair of base hits. The 25-year-old righty later allowed another homer, this time a two-run blast by Brendan Rodgers to put the Rockies up 4-2 in the fifth. Toussaint's day ended there and Atlanta was unable to mount the comeback. The 2014 first-round pick hasn't pitched more than four innings in either of his last three starts and has given up exactly four earned runs in two of those three outings. He now sits at a 4.50 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 48:22 K:BB over 50 innings this year. He's in line for a tough road matchup against the Giants at the end of the week.... See More ... See Less
