  • Rays' David Hess: Re-ups with Tampa

    Hess (illness) re-signed Nov. 11 with the Rays on a minor-league contract.

    Shortly before he officially elected free agency Oct. 15, Hess revealed that he was diagnosed with a cancerous germ cell tumor in the center of his chest. The Rays' decision to re-sign Hess earlier this month implies confidence in his recovery, and the pitcher himself was a similarly upbeat about his health in his most recent update on his personal Twitter account. Hess will hope to gain clearance from doctors in the coming months, but at least for the time being, his availability for the start of spring training is uncertain.

  • Rays' David Hess: Details cancer battle

    Hess announced Wednesday via his personal Twitter account that he will begin chemotherapy next week after he was recently diagnosed with a cancerous germ cell tumor in the center of his chest.

    The 28-year-old right-hander expressed confidence that through treatment, the cancerous tumor will hopefully be eradicated and allow him to resume his baseball career. Hess spent time in the Marlins and Rays organizations in 2021, appearing in 15 games at the MLB level and posting a 9.90 ERA and 2.15 WHIP in 20 innings.

  • Rays' David Hess: Goes unclaimed on waivers

    Hess accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday after going unclaimed on waivers, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Hess has been DFA'd three times this season, and for the second time in less than a month, he's agreed to stay in the Tampa Bay organization after losing his spot on the 40-man roster. Hess allowed six earned runs -- including three homers -- in his lone two-inning appearance during his latest stint with the big club.

  • Rays' David Hess: DFA'd again

    The Rays designated Hess for assignment Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    A prior report indicated Hess was sent to Triple-A Durham to make room on the active roster for reliever Matt Wisler's (finger) return from the 10-day injured list, but Hess will also lose his spot on the 40-man roster since he doesn't have any minor-league options remaining. Assuming he clears waivers, Hess will be outrighted to Durham within a few days and should be available for the affiliate.

  • Rays' David Hess: Returns to minors

    Hess was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Hess entered Tuesday's game against Boston with a comfortable lead and gave up six runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out two in two innings. Although he managed to keep the lead intact, he'll head back to Durham after right-hander Matt Wisler (finger) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

  • Rays' David Hess: Earns big-league call-up

    The Rays selected Hess' contract from Triple-A Durham ahead of Monday's game against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Tampa Bay already had an opening on the 40-man roster due to Chris Mazza's recent placement on the COVID-19-related injured list at Triple-A, while Dietrich Enns was optioned to Durham to clear a spot on the 28-man active roster for Hess. Hess may only be with the Rays for a couple of days to give the team a fresh arm out of the bullpen; according to Topkin, manager Kevin Cash said that reliever Matt Wisler (finger) should be ready to return from the 10-day injured list Tuesday or Wednesday.

  • Rays' David Hess: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Hess cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Hess was designated for assignment by the Rays on Sunday after spending one day in the majors, and he'll remain in the organization after going through waivers unclaimed. The right-hander has 14 appearances in the big leagues with the Marlins this season and has an 8.00 ERA, 1.89 WHIP and 16:10 K:BB over 18 innings.

  • Rays' David Hess: DFA'd by Tampa Bay

    The Rays designated Hess for assignment Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Tampa Bay removed Hess from the 40-man roster after a spot was needed for pitcher Chris Archer (forearm), who was activated from the 60-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the White Sox. Hess, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, didn't make an appearance out of the Tampa Bay bullpen during his brief stay on the active roster.

  • Rays' David Hess: Contract selected by Rays

    Hess' contract was selected by the Rays on Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    The right-hander signed a minor-league deal with Tampa Bay on Thursday, and he'll quickly join the big-league roster after Chris Mazza was sent down Saturday. Hess made 14 appearances (one start) with the Marlins earlier in the year and posted an 8.00 ERA and 1.89 WHIP in 18 innings.

  • Rays' David Hess: Links up with Rays

    Hess signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Thursday, Steve Adams of MLBTradeRumors.com reports.

    After linking up with the Rays over the winter on a minor-league deal, Hess registered a 2.81 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over 13 appearances (two starts) at Triple-A Durham before being dealt to the Marlins in July. Hess proceeded to post an 8.00 ERA and 1.89 WHIP in 18 innings with Miami at the big-league level before being outrighted off the 40-man roster and being granted his release. Given his strong results at Durham earlier this season, Hess' decision to reconnect with Tampa Bay comes as little surprise. The Rays will see if he can return to his early-season form at Triple-A before considering him for a September call-up.

  • David Hess: Elects free agency

    Hess cleared waivers and elected free agency Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Hess was cast off Miami's 40-man roster Sunday, and he'll choose not to accept an outright assignment to Triple-A Jacksonville. The right-hander posted an 8.00 ERA and 1.89 WHIP in 18 innings across 14 appearances (one start) in the majors this year and will now attempt to land an opportunity with another club.

  • Marlins' David Hess: Loses 40-man spot

    The Marlins designated Hess for assignment prior to Sunday's game against the Cubs, Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Hess was cast off the 40-man roster to clear a spot for pitcher Elieser Hernandez (quadriceps), who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start versus Chicago. After being acquired from the Rays in early July, Hess appeared in 14 games (one start) for Miami, posting an 8.00 ERA and 1.89 WHIP in 18 innings.

  • Marlins' David Hess: Hammered in spot start

    Hess (2-2) yielded seven runs on six hits while taking the loss against Colorado on Sunday. He recorded three outs and did not register a strikeout.

    Hess coughed up a three-run homer to C.J. Cron in the first inning. He then gave up four runs on two homers without recording an out in the second before he was yanked. His season ERA shot up to 7.64 through 17.2 innings.

  • Marlins' David Hess: Gets start in bullpen day

    Hess is scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Rockies in what's expected to be a bullpen day, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    With Trevor Rogers (personal) on the family medical emergency list and four other rotation options on the injured list, the Marlins will turn to their 17th different starting pitcher of the season in Hess, who has posted a 4.32 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 16.2 innings out of the bullpen. Prior to 2021, Hess had been working as a starter for the Orioles, so he could have a slightly longer leash than most relievers do when deployed as an "opener" in a bullpen game. Even so, don't expect Hess to work more than two or three frames before being pulled from the contest.

  • Marlins' David Hess: Takes loss in relief Saturday

    Hess (2-1) was tagged with the relief loss Saturday against the Yankees after allowing one run on one hit and two walks across one inning while striking out two.

    Hess closed things out in the fourth but was unable to slam the door in the fifth inning, as he was lifted right after intentionally walking Tyler Wade to load the bases with two outs. The 28-year-old right-hander hasn't looked at his best since getting traded to the Marlins in early July, posting a 5.27 ERA with a 13:8 K:BB across 13.2 innings (nine outings).

  • Marlins' David Hess: Traded to Marlins

    The Marlins acquired Hess in exchange for pitching prospect Justin Sterner and cash considerations Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    After not making the Rays in spring training, Hess posted a 2.81 ERA and 37:5 K:BB in 32 innings with Triple-A Durham. Two of his 13 appearances were starts, so while the righty will likely join Miami's bullpen, he could serve as a potential spot starter at some point. Jordan Holloway was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville in a corresponding move.

  • Rays' David Hess: Part of Thursday's cuts

    The Rays reassigned Hess to their minor-league camp Thursday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

    Hess made 47 appearances and 33 starts with the Orioles over the past three seasons, but he never had much of a chance to win an Opening Day roster spot in Tampa, as the Rays have a far deeper pitching staff. He'll likely remain at the alternate site for the next month before reporting to Durham when the Triple-A club starts its season in May.

  • Rays' David Hess: Inks minor-league deal with Rays

    Hess agreed to a minor-league contract with the Rays on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Hess appeared in three games out of the bullpen for the Orioles in 2020, allowing five earned runs on 10 hits and two walks across seven innings. The right-hander, who started 33 games for Baltimore between 2018 and 2019, will look to compete for a roster spot with Tampa Bay next spring.

  • David Hess: Clears waivers

    Hess cleared waivers and became a free agent Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Hess spent limited time in the majors in 2020, making three relief appearances in which he allowed five runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out one over seven innings. He's worked as both a starter and a reliever at the major-league level with Baltimore, but he'll now search for a new organization during the offseason.

  • Orioles' David Hess: Recalled by Baltimore

    Hess was recalled by the Orioles on Thursday.

    Hess has been working at the Orioles' alternate training site since early September, but he'll return to the active roster to provide bullpen depth over the final four games of the regular season. The right-hander has made three appearances this season, allowing five runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out one over seven innings. Right-hander Dean Kremer was sent down in a corresponding move.
