Top Jerad Eickhoff News

  • Pirates' Jerad Eickhoff: Joins Pirates

    Eickhoff signed a minor-league deal with the Pirates on Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Eickhoff was a perfectly competent starter in the first three years of his career, posting a 3.87 ERA over 65 starts from 2015 through 2017. He missed most of 2018 with injuries and hasn't pitched at anything close to that level since then, struggling to a 6.48 ERA across 83.1 innings over the last four seasons. If he spends a meaningful portion of the season in the Pirates' rotation it should be considered a pleasant surprise.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Outrighted to Triple-A

    The Mets outrighted Eickhoff to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

    As anticipated, Eickhoff went unclaimed off waivers after the Mets designated him for assignment for the third time this season. The veteran right-hander has been roughed up over his five outings (four starts) at the big-league level this season, posting an 8.69 ERA and 2.03 WHIP across 19.2 innings.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: DFA'd again by Mets

    Eickhoff was designated for assignment by the Mets on Wednesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander was tagged for 10 runs over 3.1 innings during Tuesday's start, and he's now been DFA'd by New York for the third time this month. Even before Tuesday's rough outing, Eickhoff had a 4.96 ERA and 1.71 WHIP across 16.1 innings this season.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Ambushed by Atlanta

    Eickhoff (0-2) took the loss Tuesday as the Mets fell 12-5 to Atlanta, coughing up 10 runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and five walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out four.

    This was an utter disaster for the right-hander, as he got tagged for at least two runs in each of the first four innings. Eickhoff now has an 8.69 ERA through five appearances (four starts) and 19.2 innings while serving up nine homers, and with Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) on track to return this weekend, he may have seen his last action this season for the Mets.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Starting for Mets on Tuesday

    Eickhoff will be recalled to start Tuesday's game against Atlanta, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Eickhoff was DFA'd by New York on July 20, and per Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, he re-signed with the Mets on Tuesday after electing free agency earlier in the week. Eichoff has made four previous appearances (three starts) in the majors this season, posting a 4.96 ERA and 9:5 K:BB across 16.1 innings. He most recently lasted just 3.2 innings in his latest outing against the Reds on July 19, but he could have an outside chance of qualifying for a potential win Tuesday.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: DFA'd by Mets

    The Mets designated Eickhoff for assignment Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Unearned runs were the story of Eickhoff's outing Monday, but he was only able to get through 3.2 innings in the no-decision. His roster spot was required to call up Tuesday's starter, Robert Stock. Eickhoff figures to get another opportunity in the Mets' rotation this season, especially while Jacob deGrom (forearm) is sidelined.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Let down by defense

    Eickhoff didn't factor into the decision in Monday's wild 15-11 extra-innings win over the Reds, allowing seven runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk over 3.2 innings. He struck out three.

    All the scoring against him came in the first two innings, and while Eickhoff created a lot of his own problems, three errors behind him -- including two by Luis Guillorme in place of the injured Francisco Lindor (oblique) at shortstop -- did the right-hander no favors. Eickhoff's time in the rotation could be running out with Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) nearing a return, and his 4.96 ERA through 16.1 innings masks a horrific 8.12 FIP.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Slated to start Monday

    Eickhoff will start Monday's game against the Reds, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Eickhoff served as the primary pitcher in his last appearance, but he'll make his third start of the season in Monday's series opener. Across three appearances (two starts) in 2021, the right-hander has posted a 4.97 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 12.2 innings.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Gives up pair of homers

    Eickhoff allowed two runs on six hits in 2.2 innings versus Pittsburgh on Sunday. He struck out none and did not factor in the decision.

    Eickhoff served as the primary pitcher behind opener Aaron Loup in Sunday's contest. There was little trouble for Eickhoff in his first two innings, but Rodolfo Castro and Michael Perez each took him deep for solo home runs in the fifth inning. The 31-year-old right-hander has allowed seven runs in 12.2 innings this season, with two of his three major-league appearances coming as a starter.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Contract selected

    Eickhoff had his contract selected by the Mets on Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Eickhoff returned to the Mets on a minor-league deal on July 5, but he'll be recalled and is expected to work a few innings in Sunday's game against the Pirates. He made two starts for the big-league club earlier in the season, posting a 4.50 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with a 6:4 K:BB across 10 frames.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Returns to Mets

    Eickhoff signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Monday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Eickhoff elected free agency after he cleared waivers Saturday, but he'll ultimately return to the Mets on a minor-league deal. The right-hander should report to Triple-A Syracuse after he made eight starts with the minor-league club earlier in the season.

  • Jerad Eickhoff: Elects free agency

    Eickhoff cleared waivers and elected free agency Saturday.

    Eickhoff was designated for assignment by the Mets on Tuesday, and he'll become a free agent rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Syracuse. The right-hander made two starts for the Mets this year and allowed five runs on 11 hits and four walks while striking out six in 10 innings.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Designated for assignment

    The Mets designated Eickhoff for assignment Tuesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    The righty gets demoted a day after the Nationals tagged him for eight hits, four of which were home runs, over six innings. Combined with his June 21 start, Eickhoff posted a 4.50 ERA in 10 innings with the Mets, striking out six and walking four. Thomas Szapucki was recalled Tuesday to replace Eickhoff on the roster.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Coughs up four homers

    Eickhoff (0-1) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings Monday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Nationals.

    Eickhoff got off to an ugly start Monday, serving up back-to-back homers to Kyle Schwarber and Trea Turner to begin the first inning. He gave up four solo homers in the outing, including two by Schwarber. He tossed four shutout innings in his season debut on June 21 but he now owns a 4.50 ERA through nine frames. If Eickhoff gets another shot in the rotation, he could take the mound in Yankee Stadium this weekend.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Getting another start

    Eickhoff is tentatively scheduled to make a second start for the Mets in Sunday's game against the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Eickhoff was awarded another turn through the rotation after he excelled during a spot start in the second game of Monday's doubleheader with Atlanta following his call-up from Triple-A Syracuse. He tossed four scoreless innings in his Mets debut, striking out three while scattering three hits and three walks. With Joey Lucchesi (elbow) set to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery, Eickhoff looks like he could get the opportunity to stick around as the Mets' No. 5 starter until the team gets Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) back from the 60-day injured list.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Solid in no-decision

    Eickhoff gave up three hits and three walks over four scoreless innings during the second game of Monday's doubleheader. He struck out three and didn't factor into the decision.

    Making his first appearance in the majors since 2019, the 31-year-old tossed 47 of 77 pitches for strikes and kept the Mets in the game as long as he could, but as soon as Eickhoff departed, Ronald Acuna promptly led off the fifth inning with a solo shot. This effort was likely enough to keep him in the rotation for now, but Eickhoff hasn't posted useful fantasy numbers since 2016.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Confirmed for Game 2 start

    Eickhoff was confirmed as the starter for Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader versus Atlanta, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander will start in his Mets debut after Jacob deGrom covered five scoreless frames in the matinee. Eickhoff last pitched in the majors with the Phillies in 2019 and has a 5.52 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 41:13 K:BB over 44 innings this season at Triple-A Syracuse.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Likely to start Monday's nightcap

    Mets manager Luis Rojas said that Eickhoff will likely start the second game of Monday's doubleheader versus Atlanta if he isn't needed in relief in Game 1, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Jacob deGrom (shoulder) was cleared to take the hill for Game 1, and he'll presumably pitch all seven innings of the contest unless he has a third straight start cut short due to injury or if he uncharacteristically struggles. The Mets called Eickhoff up from Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday after he posted a 5.52 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 41:13 K:BB in 44 innings across his eight starts with the affiliate.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Gets big-league call

    The Mets selected Eickhoff's contract from Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    New York designated outfielder Mason Williams for assignment to clear room for Eickhoff on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster. According to Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record, Eickhoff will be available out of the bullpen for Sunday's series finale in Washington, and if he ends up going unused, he'll be a candidate to start one half of Monday's doubleheader with Atlanta. The 31-year-old right-hander hasn't been overly impressive through eight starts at Syracuse this season, posting a 5.52 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 8.4 K/9 across 44 innings.

  • Mets' Jerad Eickhoff: Won't make Opening Day roster

    Eickhoff was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday.

    Eickhoff struggled over a limited sample during spring training, as he posted an 11.25 ERA and 2.50 WHIP in four innings across two appearances (one start). As a result, the 30-year-old will likely begin the year at Triple-A Syracuse but could fill in if New York's pitching staff deals with injuries during the regular season.
