  • Royals' Daniel Mengden: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Mengden was outrighted to Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. Mengden joined the major-league roster as a replacement player after Joel Payamps (illness) landed on the COVID-19 injured list, but he'll head back to the minors after Payamps was activated Saturday. Mengden made four relief appearances during his time in the majors, and he posted a 2.08 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with one save in 4.1 innings.

  • Royals' Daniel Mengden: Snags save in 11-inning win

    Mengden allowed an unearned run on one hit and struck out one in one inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 12-11 extra-innings win over the Angels. The Royals' first four relievers Tuesday combined for just two innings, and Mengden was the last arm left in the bullpen. He successfully protected a two-run lead despite allowing a sacrifice fly to Shohei Ohtani in the 11th inning that brought the Angels within a run. This was just the second appearance of the season for Mengden, who has been used sparingly since joining the big club June 13 when Joel Payamps (illness) landed on the COVID-19 injured list. With Zack Greinke (elbow) soon to return from the 15-day injured list, Mengden and starter Kris Bubic are on the hot seat to keep their spots on the 26-man active roster.

  • Royals' Daniel Mengden: Contract selected by Royals

    Mengden's contract was selected by the Royals on Monday. Mengden joined the Royals on a minor-league deal in early March, and he posted a 5.47 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 52.2 innings over 12 appearances (11 starts) at Triple-A Omaha to begin the season. The right-hander pitched in the KBO last year but will join the Royals' bullpen after Joel Payamps (undisclosed) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Monday.

  • Royals' Daniel Mengden: Returns stateside with Royals

    Mengden signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Tuesday. Mengden spent last season with the KBO's Kia Tigers, finishing with a 3.60 ERA in 21 starts. Prior to that, the 29-year-old righty spent parts of five seasons with Oakland, recording a passable but unexciting 4.64 ERA in 302.2 innings. He's been decent enough that he definitely has a chance to provide rotation depth for the Royals this season, but his career 17.3 percent strikeout rate makes him little more than an innings eater without much fantasy upside.

  • Daniel Mengden: Heads overseas

    Mengden signed a one-year, $725,000 contract with the Korea Baseball Organization's Kia Tigers on Dec. 29, the Associated Press reports. Cut loose from the Athletics' 40-man roster in late September, Mengden likely would have had to settle for a minor-league deal this winter after he posted a 3.65 ERA and 1.70 WHIP across 12.1 innings with Oakland in 2020. Rather than dealing with the uncertainty of the 2021 minor-league season, Mengden instead felt heading overseas with a guaranteed contract in hand was the preferable option. He'll likely look to turn in a strong showing in South Korea this season with the hope of garnering renewed interest from MLB teams in 2022.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Clears waivers

    Mengden cleared waivers Tuesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas. Mengden lost his spot on the 40-man roster Sunday after being activated from the COVID-19 injured list, but he'll remain in the organization going forward. It's unclear whether the right-hander will be included in the Athletics' player pool heading into the postseason. Mengden posted a 3.65 ERA and 1.70 WHIP across 12.1 innings spanning four appearances in 2020.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Activated and DFA'd

    Mengden was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Sunday and subsequently designated for assignment by the A's. The right-hander landed on the COVID-19 IL in early September and was recently cleared to return to the alternate training site, but he won't retain his spot on the 40-man roster. Mengden appeared in four games this season and had a 3.65 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB across 12.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Cleared to rejoin team

    Mengden (illness) joined the Athletics at the alternate training site and will begin throwing Saturday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. Mengden tested positive for COVID-19 at the beginning of September, but he was reportedly asymptomatic. It's unclear when he'll be able to return to game action, but a better timetable for his return could be known once he resumes throwing.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Lands on COVID-19 IL

    Mengden was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He is asymptomatic, but will nonetheless have to quarantine until he tests negative, so he should be considered out indefinitely. The Athletics say that Mengden did not violate safety protocols, so there will be no discipline from the team. Mike Minor was added to the active roster in a corresponding move.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Used in long relief

    Mengden came on in relief of Mike Fiers in the fourth inning of a loss to the Angels on Tuesday and allowed an earned run on five hits and two walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out two. The right-hander threw 58 pitches overall while eating up some important innings in the middle of the contest in what was his first appearance since making a spot start July 28 against the Rockies. With Jesus Luzardo back in the rotation and Chris Bassitt thriving as a starter as well, Mengden, whose arm is built up for multiple innings, could serve as a valuable resource for manager Bob Melvin in instances such as Tuesday's when starters don't log a normal workload, which makes the 14 days between outings somewhat confounding.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Back in bullpen

    Mengden moved into a bullpen role July 31 after the Athletics added Jesus Luzardo to the rotation, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Mengden hasn't been used since his last start July 28, while Oakland's top pitching prospect strengthened his hold on a rotation spot by tossing five shutout innings Tuesday against the Rangers. The Athletics presumably still view Mengden as the next man up in the rotation, but he'll be largely limited to low-leverage mop-up work while he's in the bullpen.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Uninspiring effort in loss

    Mengden (0-1) allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over four innings in a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday. Sam Hilliard, the Rockies' eight-hole hitter, was a thorn in Mengden's side, doubling and later homering off the right-hander. Mengden entered this contest with a 4.54 FIP and 1.30 WHIP for his career, so he's a capable, if unexciting spot starter. The A's are hoping to get Jesus Luzardo stretched out and back in the rotation sooner rather than later.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Returns from IL

    The Athletics activated Mengden (elbow) from the 45-day injured list Wednesday. Mengden was first placed on the 60-day IL in mid-February after requiring arthroscopic right elbow surgery, but he made a full recovery from the procedure while MLB was on hiatus for four months. After satisfying the Oakland coaching staff with his performance during summer camp, Mengden will open the season as the Athletics' fifth starter, taking the spot that was opened by A.J. Puk's (shoulder) move to the 10-day IL.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Opening as fifth starter

    Mengden (elbow) will open the season as the Athletics' fifth starter after A.J. Puk was placed on the injured list with a shoulder strain Monday, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Mengden underwent arthroscopic elbow surgery back in February but is considered fully healthy, though he remains on the 60-day injured list for now. He may not have been the next man up if not for Jesus Luzardo's late arrival at camp due to COVID-19, and there's certainly a chance Luzardo displaces him from the rotation once he builds up his arm strength, but Mengden should at least get to make a start or two at the beginning of the year. He won't be a particularly exciting fantasy option in those starts, as he owns a career 4.68 ERA and a 17.3 percent strikeout rate.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Impressing with new delivery

    Mengden (elbow) worked with pitching coach Scott Emerson on modifying his delivery during the recent shutdown, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. "I've been trying to shorten up my arm action just a little bit," Mengden said. "I felt weird last year. I'm trying to be a little more fluid with not as much movement back and forward. Trying to keep everything smooth and repeatable." The right-hander has previously utilized multiple pumps during his windup, but due to some of the inconsistencies that may have produced, Mengden has opted to eliminate some of the extra movement as well as a slide step. The intent of the change is to allow Mengden to work quicker and keep his release point steady, both of which have been issues at times in the past. The early returns have been encouraging, with Mengden looking sharp in simulated games and teammate Matt Olson praising the pitcher's curveball, movement and command.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Makes it into player pool

    Mengden (elbow) is part of the 60-man player pool that will report to the Athletics' summer camp, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. The right-hander was recently declared to be fully healthy from his late-February arthroscopic elbow surgery, although he remains on the 60-day injured list for the moment. Mengden seemingly offers the type of versatility that would be especially coveted in a 2020 season that will have several unique aspects, and he'll have a chance to make his case for a spot on the expanded Opening Day roster over the three-plus weeks of summer camp.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Deemed fully healthy for camp

    Mengden, who underwent late-February arthroscopic surgery on his throwing elbow, is now considered to be fully healthy for the upcoming start of the team's summer camp, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. The veteran right-hander had already assessed that he was close to full health by late May, which was further validated by the fact he'd been able to resume throwing bullpen sessions at that point. The subsequent month has resulted in Mengden's elbow getting back to 100 percent, and his experience and versatility could be particularly valuable in the uniquely formatted 2020 regular season. The 27-year-old could realistically handle both spot starts and long-relief appearances while helping ensure the team's front-line arms aren't prematurely taxed, particularly early in the shortened season.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Healthy again after elbow surgery

    Mengden (elbow) told Brodie Brazil of NBC Sports Bay Area last week that he's "about 95 percent" healthy and has resumed throwing all of his pitches in bullpen sessions. Mengden was placed on the 60-day injured list in mid-February after requiring arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow, which marked the third time he went under the knife during the offseason after he previously required a pair of procedures to address a digestive issue. Though Mengden was initially in line to miss at least the first month or two of the season, the league's ongoing hiatus has allowed him to make a near full recovery without having to miss any actual games. Even if he had entered spring training healthy, Mengden was expected to be on the outside looking in for a rotation spot, so he may have to settle for a long-relief role if Oakland decides to activate him from the IL when the season resumes.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Helped by delayed regular season

    Mengden (elbow), who resumed throwing March 13, will miss significantly less time, if any, thanks to the delayed start to the regular season. The right-hander's original recovery timeline from Feb. 12 arthroscopic surgery was 6-to-10 weeks, which was set to definitely keep him out through the early portion of the season when Opening Day was still scheduled to unfold March 26. With the first regular-season game now unlikely to transpire before June 1 at the earliest, Mengden could be available from the start of the 2020 campaign. The 27-year-old will look to secure a multi-inning bullpen role with all five rotation spots likely spoken for, and Mengden should have a chance to corroborate the fitness of his elbow during whatever ramp-up period takes place leading up to the onset of the regular season.

  • Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Targeting midseason return

    Mengden (elbow) will play catch Friday as he works his way toward a midseason return, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Mengden will throw for the first time since undergoing arthroscopic elbow surgery in mid-February. Reports at the time said he'd be back in 6-to-10 weeks, though manager Bob Melvin's midseason timeline, while somewhat ambiguous, suggests that may be a little optimistic. A more precise timeline should emerge once Mengden begins throwing.
