Mets' Alex Claudio: Joins Mets
Claudio signed a minor-league deal with the Mets on Thursday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.
Claudio struggled mightily in 2021, posting a 5.51 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 32.2 innings as a member of the Angels. He was designated for assignment and ultimately released in July before a brief stint with the Red Sox. Claudio will look to regain the effectiveness from earlier in his career, particularly against left-handed hitters.... See More ... See Less
Alex Claudio: Cut loose
Claudio was released by the Red Sox on Monday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Claudio inked a minor-league deal with Boston on Aug. 10, but he failed to reach the big leagues before being released. He appeared in 41 contests earlier this season with the Angels, struggling to a 5.51 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with a 30:15 K:BB across 32.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Alex Claudio: Signs minor-league deal with Boston
Claudio was added to the roster at Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday after signing a minor-league deal with the Red Sox, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Claudio was DFA'd and later released by the Angels in late July after struggling to a 5.51 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 32.2 innings. He'll now provide relief depth for Boston at Triple-A, and if he's able to impress, the southpaw could become an option to join the Red Sox bullpen down the stretch.... See More ... See Less
Alex Claudio: Parts with Halos
The Angels released Claudio on Friday.
Claudio went unclaimed off waivers after being designated for assignment last weekend, and since he apparently wasn't interested in reporting to the Angels' Triple-A affiliate, the organization elected to cut ties with him. Prior to being dropped from the 40-man roster, Claudio made 41 relief appearances and posted a 5.51 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 32.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Alex Claudio: DFA'd by Halos
Claudio was designated for assignment by the Angels on Sunday.
Claudio was supposed to bolster the Los Angeles bullpen after signing during the offseason, but he never found much consistency and posted a 5.51 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 30:15 K:BB over 32.2 innings. Sunday's starter Jaime Barria was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Alex Claudio: Can't find control in loss
Claudio (1-2) took the loss against San Francisco on Wednesday, pitching a third of an inning and allowing four runs (three earned) on three walks.
The Angels and Giants began the 13th inning tied 2-2, and Claudio got the ball with the inherited runner on second base. He induced a groundout to start the frame and subsequently walked Buster Posey intentionally, and he couldn't locate his pitches thereafter, walking the next two batters to force in a run. Claudio was consequently pulled from the contest and had to watch as all three of the runners he left on base came around to score. All told, only three of his 12 pitches went for strikes as he tied a season high with three walks.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Alex Claudio: Secures first save
Claudio got a one-out save Friday against the Diamondbacks, recording a strikeout to close out the 10th inning of a 6-5 win.
Manager Joe Maddon chose Claudio to pitch to Stephen Vogt with two out and two on in a one-run game in the 10th, and the lefty got Vogt swinging to record the save. The high-leverage appearance was necessitated by Claudio being the sixth Angel reliever of the game and he isn't in the closer conversation with a 4.56 ERA and only two holds.... See More ...

Angels' Alex Claudio: Suffers loss Tuesday
Claudio (0-1) took the loss Tuesday against Cleveland while allowing one run on one hit and striking out a batter in an inning of work.
Claudio came in to pitch the eighth inning and got two quick outs on five pitches before serving up a solo home run to Josh Naylor. The long ball would end up being the deciding factor in the game which saddled the left-hander with his first loss of 2021. Claudio now owns a 4.60 ERA and 17:2 K:BB over 15.2 innings this season....

Angels' Alex Claudio: Good to go
Claudio has recovered from his hip infection and is a full-go for game action, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Claudio got a late start to spring training due to the hip issue, but he's now ready to go and is likely to appear in a Cactus League contest in the coming days. The left-hander is expected to fill a middle-relief role, with some potential for setup duties, with the Angels this season.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Alex Claudio: Reports to camp
Claudio (hip) arrived at spring training Wednesday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Claudio missed the first week of spring training due to a right hip infection, but he was cleared to join the team Wednesday. Barring any setbacks, the southpaw should have plenty of time to prepare for Opening Day.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Alex Claudio: Dealing with hip infection
Claudio's arrival at spring training will be delayed due to a right hip infection, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Claudio will be unable to compete at the start of spring training due to his hip issue. Manager Joe Maddon said the reliever should miss 1-to-2 weeks, although he said Claudio could also be sidelined longer. Once he's fully healthy, the southpaw should mainly work in low-leverage situations for his new club.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Alex Claudio: Signs with Angels
Claudio signed a one-year, $1.13 million contract with the Angels on Wednesday.
Claudio made at least 66 relief appearances in each of the three seasons leading up to the abbreviated 2020 campaign. However, he has a lackluster average fastball velocity of 85.9 mph and has posted a 4.28 ERA over the past three seasons. The southpaw should pitch mainly in low-leverage situations for Los Angeles.... See More ... See Less
Alex Claudio: Let go by Milwaukee
Claudio was non-tendered by the Brewers on Wednesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Claudio had a 4.26 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB over 19 innings for the Brewers last season. The soft-throwing lefty led the team with 83 appearances during 2019 and posted similar numbers.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Alex Claudio: Finishes Friday's contest
Claudio threw a clean ninth inning in Milwaukee's 7-1 victory over Cleveland on Friday.
The Brewers were well ahead on the scoreboard heading into the final frames Friday, so the team's regular late-game relievers got the night off and Claudio got the chance to seal the deal. Claudio has finished six games this season and even has a save, but he generally works in middle relief.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Alex Claudio: Converts rare save chance
Claudio allowed one run (none earned) but did not allow a hit or a walk while striking out one to earn the save Saturday against the Cubs.
Claudio got the save chance as Josh Hader was likely unavailable after tossing 1.1 innings and throwing 35 pitches Friday night. Claudio came in to pitch in the 10th inning and did not allow any baserunners, but the runner starting on second base scored to cut the lead to one. It was Claudio's first save of the season, and he isn't likely to see many more with Hader accounting for the vast majority of save chances for the Brewers.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Alex Claudio: Makes second appearance
Claudio recorded two outs out of the bullpen and allowed one earned run in Monday's extra-inning victory over the Pirates.
Claudio was not sharp Monday and allowed a one-run deficit to turn into a four-run margin, but he did limit the damage enough to allow the Brewers to come back and win Monday's contest. Claudio led all relievers in appearances last season with 83, and he is being used similarly thus far, being summoned from the bullpen in two of the Brewers' first four games.... See More ...
