Marlins' Steven Okert: Sloppy in ninth inning
Okert (0-1) took the loss Wednesday versus Baltimore. He allowed a run on four walks in one-third of an inning.
The southpaw allowed a leadoff walk to Cedric Mullins before allowing the speedy outfielder to take second base with a wild pitch. Austin Hays sacrificed to move Mullins to third, and Okert responded with intentional walks to Trey Mancini and Ryan Mountcastle to set up a double-play opportunity. It didn't work, as Okert then gave up a walkoff walk to Ryan McKenna. The loss was the 30-year-old's first of the season in 11 appearances. He owns a reasonable 2.38 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 11:5 K:BB across 11.1 innings this year.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Steven Okert: Called up by Marlins
The Marlins recalled Okert from Triple-A Jacksonville on Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
The lefty reliever has impressed at Triple-A this season, pitching to a 1.80 ERA in 20 innings while striking out 29 batters and walking just one while allowing just a single homer. He last appeared in the majors in 2018, when he pitched in seven games for the Giants and posted a 1.23 ERA.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Steven Okert: Signs with Marlins
Okert signed a minor-league deal with the Marlins on Friday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. The deal does not include an invitation to spring training.
The 29-year-old southpaw hasn't pitched in the majors since 2018 and has a career 4.28 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 48.1 innings, all of which came with the Giants. Okert will provide the Marlins with some organizational bullpen depth.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Designated for assignment
Okert was designated for assignment by the Giants on Saturday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Okert seemed to have a good shot at a bullpen role but will instead be cast off the 40-man roster entirely. As a left-hander with a respectable enough 4.28 ERA in 48.1 career big-league innings, there's a decent chance he won't pass through waivers unclaimed.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Heads to San Francisco
The Giants recalled Okert from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
With Sacramento's season coming to an end Monday, the Giants will bring Okert aboard along with fellow Triple-A hurlers Pierce Johnson and Casey Kelly to provide some bullpen depth throughout September. Okert has pitched exclusively at the Triple-A level this season, but made 44 appearances with the Giants in 2017 and posted a 5.67 ERA and 1.30 WHIP across 27 innings.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Heads back to minors
Okert was optioned back to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Okert was up for just one day and did not make an appearance. He was sent down so that the Giants could call up Andrew Suarez to make a start, filling in for the injured Johnny Cueto (ankle). Okert is clearly near the top of the list of minor-league relievers that the Giants will call on in an emergency, but with a 4.83 ERA in 41 career big-league innings, he's unlikely to be much of a fantasy asset in the time he spends in the majors....

Giants' Steven Okert: Called up by Giants
Okert was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Chris Haft of MLB.com reports.
The lefty will be available out of the bullpen Tuesday as he takes the roster spot of Johnny Cueto, who was placed on the DL with an ankle sprain. Okert started the year down at Triple-A and has made two appearances at Sacramento, notching six strikeouts over 2.1 scoreless innings. It could be a short stint for him, however, as the Giants need to add a starter to take Cueto's place in the rotation on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Possible call-up Tuesday
Okert is in the Giants' clubhouse and will be available out of the bullpen Tuesday if Johnny Cueto (ankle) is placed on the 10-day disabled list, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "Okert is here if we make a move today," said manager Bruce Bochy.
Cueto is battling an ankle injury that will likely preclude him from starting Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks. With that, Okert is available as an extra arm out of the bullpen Tuesday should the Giants opt to place Cueto on the disabled list. That said, it'd likely be a short stay for Okert considering that the Giants would need to make another roster move to activate a starter for Wednesday. There will be more clarity on Okert's status once the Giants make a decision on Cueto.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Sent to Triple-A Sacramento
Okert was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Okert had a disappointing 2017 season. The southpaw posted a 5.67 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over 44 games (27 innings) and put together a poor 22:11 K:BB. Although he's shown improvement this spring, giving up just one run over 4.2 innings, he'll return to Triple-A Sacramento.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Making case for bullpen
Okert allowed one walk while striking out two over a scoreless inning in Thursday's spring win over Seattle.
Okert is on the outside looking in when it comes to the Giants' projected Opening Day bullpen. The southpaw has looked sharp in his first four spring appearances, but he will have to build off this momentum to overtake fellow lefty Josh Osich to earn one of the club's final bullpen jobs....

Giants' Steven Okert: Returning to big club
The Giants recalled Okert from Triple-A Sacramento, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The southpaw owns a 6.75 major-league ERA in 21.1 innings. Okert will work the middle innings, likely during mostly low-leverage appearances.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Sent down Saturday
Okert was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Okert threw 1.2 scoreless innings (34 pitches) in Friday's loss and would have been unavailable for a couple days, so the Giants decided to swap him out for a fresh arm. The lefty has struggled throughout most of the season, but he will likely be on the shuttle back to San Francisco the next time bullpen reinforcements are needed.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Cracking under pressure of runners on base
Okert has pitched in 5.2 innings since being called up June 23, collecting seven strikeouts.
Okert has struck out 14 batters in 18.2 innings with an ERA of 6.75. It's been a step backwards for the reliever, who made his major league debut in 2016 and recorded 14 strikeouts in 14 innings with an ERA of 3.21. The big difference has been his lack of composure with runners on base. He's only stranding 50 percent of baserunners, an incredibly low number that should only improve as Okert continues getting chances.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Recalled from Triple-A
Okert was recalled Friday from Triple-A Sacramento, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Okert was sent down to Triple-A to regain his confidence and has performed admirably for Sacramento, notching four saves over 12 innings with a 2.25 ERA and a sparkling 0.67 WHIP. Okert owns a 6.23 ERA at the MLB level this season, but the Giants are hoping he'll pitch more like he did in his first major-league stint last season, when he managed a 3.21 ERA and 14 strikeouts in as many innings....

Giants' Steven Okert: Optioned to Triple-A
Okert was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.
Aaron Hill (forearm) was reinstated from the DL and Okert was optioned down in a corresponding move. Manager Bruce Bochy told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle that he feels Okert needs to regain his confidence in a less stressful environment. Okert has given up nine runs on 12 hits and six walks in 13 innings so far this season.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Could see situational save chances
Manager Bruce Bochy named Derek Law the head of the closer committee that will fill in while Mark Melancon (elbow) is on the disabled list, but Okert could see situational save opportunities, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Law is clearly the reliever to target for save chances, but Okert may be deployed in the ninth against opponents that boast lefty-heavy lineups. His 5.06 ERA doesn't look appealing, but the young southpaw has held his own in high-leverage situations this season, collecting two holds without blowing a lead. Melancon isn't expected to be out for long, so Okert may not see many save opportunities, if any at all.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Bounces back Monday
Okert earned a tough five-out hold Monday, allowing no baserunners and striking out one in a 4-3 win over the Dodgers.
Manager Bruce Bochy called upon Okert to record five of the final six outs of Monday's win, and the southpaw came through with flying colors. He fared batter this time around after giving up three runs against the Dodgers last Thursday. The 25-year-old's 5.14 ERA through seven innings is unsavory, but he should see some hold chances against lefty-heavy lineups as the only left-hander in the Giants' bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Back up with Giants
Okert was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.
Okert was up with the Giants for a brief stint earlier this season, but did not make an appearance before he was sent back down. The left-hander will take the roster spot of Jarrett Parker (broken clavicle) in the short term, though it's likely the team eventually uses the spot to add outfield help.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Okert: Sent back to minors
Okert was optioned back to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
With Hunter Strickland returning from paternity leave, Okert will head back to Sacramento for the time being. He didn't make an appearance during his brief stint with the Giants, though he'll remain one of the top options if another opportunity in the bullpen should arise.... See More ... See Less
