Top Sean Newcomb News

  • Cubs' Sean Newcomb: Throws bullpen session

    Newcomb (ankle) threw a 40-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Newcomb resumed playing catch last weekend, and he handled a fairly significant workload while throwing off a mound Saturday. The team will wait to see how he responds to Saturday's throwing session prior to determining the next steps in the southpaw's recovery, but he seems to be trending toward a relatively minimal absence.

  • Cubs' Sean Newcomb: Plays catch

    Newcomb (ankle) played catch Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Newcomb hit the injured list Wednesday with a sprained left ankle. The fact that he's playing catch three days later suggests that his absence may not be a particularly long one. He's expected to resume mound work soon.

  • Cubs' Sean Newcomb: Goes on IL with ankle injury

    The Cubs placed Newcomb on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with a left ankle sprain, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    According to Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times, Newcomb picked up the ankle injury while shagging flyballs in the outfield during batting practice Sunday. Since being acquired from Atlanta on April 20, Newcomb has made just three appearances out of the Chicago bullpen, working 3.1 innings while giving up three earned runs.

  • Cubs' Sean Newcomb: Off to rough start

    Newcomb, who allowed three runs across 1.1 innings in Friday's loss to the Brewers, has an 8.59 ERA this season.

    Newcomb was traded to the Cubs on April 20 to serve as another lefty option in the bullpen. The 28-year-old hasn't made much of an impact yet, allowing 10 hits, five walks and two home runs across 7.1 innings. Newcomb struggled some in his last two seasons with Atlanta also, as evidenced by a 1.70 WHIP in 2021 and a 1.90 WHIP in 2020. His WHIP so far this season is 2.05, and if Newcomb keeps allowing baserunners at this rate, he's unlikely to find much success.

  • Cubs' Sean Newcomb: Traded to Cubs

    Newcomb, along with cash considerations, was traded from Atlanta to the Cubs on Wednesday in exchange for Jesse Chavez.

    Newcomb was designated for assignment by Atlanta on Tuesday, and Chicago opted to acquire him via trade rather than potentially losing out on a waiver claim. The 28-year-old lefty had a 3.87 ERA across his first three big-league campaigns, but he's struggled over the past three years, which limited his opportunities in the majors. He'll now receive a fresh start with the Cubs.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Shaky start to season

    Newcomb gave up one run on two hits and two walks over 1.1 innings in Monday's loss to the Dodgers. He struck out one.

    Entering the game in the fourth inning in relief of Huascar Ynoa, Newcomb wasn't much more effective than Atlanta's starter. The 28-year-old southpaw has a 7.20 ERA, 2.20 WHIP and 4:4 K:BB through his first five innings this season, and Newcomb doesn't seem likely to move out of a low-leverage role any time soon.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Loses roster spot

    Atlanta designated Newcomb for assignment Tuesday.

    Newcomb's lack of remaining minor-league options helped him make Atlanta's Opening Day roster, but he was able to maintain his spot in the big-league bullpen for long. He allowed a run on two hits and two walks over 1.1 innings in Monday's loss to the Dodgers, marking the third time in as many appearances that he gave up at least one run. Atlanta recalled Dylan Lee from Triple-A Gwinnett to replace Newcomb as a left-handed option out of the bullpen.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Agrees to terms for 2022

    Newcomb and Atlanta agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $900,000 contract to avoid arbitration.

    Newcomb will be competing for a spot in the reigning champions' bullpen this spring after turning in a 4.73 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 43:27 K:BB across 32.1 innings in 2021. The lefty doesn't have any minor-league options remaining, which should work in his favor in his bid for Atlanta's Opening Day roster.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Sent to Triple-A

    Newcomb was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.

    Newcomb rejoin the big-league club in early September and will head back to the minors despite giving up only one run over seven innings since being recalled. Spencer Strider had his contract selected in a corresponding move and is set to make his major-league debut this weekend.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Recalled by Atlanta

    Newcomb was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

    Newcomb was dominant in the minors after he was sent down in late July, and he posted a 0.93 ERA and 0.72 WHIP in 9.2 innings across eight appearances since his demotion. He'll provide an extra arm in the bullpen after right-hander Chris Martin (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Returns to minors

    Atlanta optioned Newcomb to Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.

    The southpaw has appeared in three games since his most recent call-up, allowing two runs on six hits and a pair of walks in 3.2 innings. Overall this season, Newcomb has pitched 25.1 innings with a 5.68 ERA and 1.78 WHIP. He certainly could return to Atlanta at some point in 2021 if injuries hit any of the team's relievers.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Back with big club

    Atlanta recalled Newcomb from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

    Atlanta has an opening in the rotation to begin the second half after Ian Anderson (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list last week, but the team will turn to Touki Toussaint to fill the void rather than giving Newcomb another trial as a starter. Due to his spotty control and shallow repertoire, Atlanta seems committed to deploying Newcomb strictly as a reliever at this point in his career. All 29 of his appearances this season between the big club and Triple-A have come out of the bullpen, with Newcomb working no more than two innings in any of those outings.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Sent to Triple-A

    Newcomb was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

    Newcomb was recalled by Atlanta in mid-May, and he posted a 4.70 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 15.1 innings across 16 relief appearances during his time in the majors. He had posted scoreless outings in five of his last six appearances, but he'll now head to Triple-A Gwinnett after Max Fried (finger) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Recalled by Braves

    Newcomb was recalled to the Braves' big-league roster Wednesday.

    The move comes one week after Newcomb was optioned to make room for Max Fried's return. Now, the lefty replaces Grant Dayton (thigh) on the active roster. Newcomb's two most recent big-league outings were brutal, as he allowed multiple earned runs in both without recording three outs in either. He had been pitching well before, however, with four straight scoreless appearances covering 4.2 innings. He will likely receive some mid-innings opportunities while active.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Optioned to Triple-A

    Newcomb was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

    Newcomb had a strong showing during the first several weeks of the season, but he gave up five funs on five hits and two walks while striking out two in one inning across his last two appearances. As a result, he'll head to the minors after left-hander Max Fried (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day IL in a corresponding move.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Back from injured list

    Newcomb returned from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

    Newcomb will wind up missing just shy of two weeks. In five appearances prior to his absence, he allowed just one earned run in 5.1 innings, striking out 12 while walking four.

  • Braves' Sean Newcomb: Could return Friday

    Newcomb (undisclosed) threw at the alternate training site Tuesday and should be ready to return by Friday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Newcomb has been on the COVID-19 injured list since April 17 after a potential exposure to someone who had tested positive for the coronavirus. However, manager Brian Snitker is optimistic that Newcomb will be able to rejoin the bullpen for the upcoming road trip that begins Friday.
