Zack Godley: Surfaces in indy ball
Godley signed a contract Tuesday with the Gastonia Honey Hunters of the independent Atlantic League of Professional Baseball.
After the Reds released him from his minor-league deal in late May, Godley was unable to find another opportunity in affiliated ball, so he'll head to the independent ranks to continue his downward-trending career. Since turning in a 3.55 ERA over 155 innings with the Diamondbacks in 2017, Godley has spent time in six organizations while logging a 5.57 ERA across 302.1 innings in the majors over parts of the past five years....

Zack Godley: Cut by Cincy
Godley was released by the Reds on Wednesday, Doug Gray of RedsMinorLeagues.com reports.
Godley joined the Reds on a minor-league deal in February, but he's now been let go less than two months into the season. The veteran right-hander had a 6.64 ERA, 2.19 WHIP and 26:19 K:BB across 20.1 innings with Triple-A Lousiville.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Zack Godley: Inks MiLB deal with Reds
Godley signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Sunday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Godley made two major-league appearances for the Brewers last year but pitched mainly at the Triple-A level. Across 21 appearances (18 starts) in the minors during the 2021 campaign, he logged a 4.39 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 98.1 innings. It wouldn't be surprising to see the right-hander invited to big-league spring training if it occurs in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Zack Godley: Let go by Mets
The Mets released Godley on Monday, Steve Adams of MLBTradeRumors.com reports.
Godley's stint in the Mets organization lasted just three weeks. He made four appearances for Triple-A Syracuse, compiling a 2.33 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 19.1 innings. He's now been cut loose from three organizations in the past two months after previously getting released by Milwaukee and Cleveland.... See More ... See Less
Zack Godley: Time over in Cleveland organization
Cleveland released Godley on Monday.
After declining an assignment to the Brewers' Triple-A affiliate when Milwaukee dropped him from its 40-man roster in late June, Godley quickly linked up on a minor-league deal with Cleveland. The 31-year-old right-hander was hoping to parlay a strong showing at Triple-A Columbus into a promotion back to the big leagues, but that never materialized. He was cut loose after posting a 6.00 ERA and 1.71 WHIP in 24 innings over six starts with Columbus.... See More ... See Less
Indians' Zack Godley: Lands with Cleveland
Godley joined Cleveland on a minor-league deal Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Zack Godley: Elects free agency
Godley rejected an assignment to Triple-A Nashville after clearing waivers and elected to become a free agent Friday.
The veteran right-hander was DFA'd by the Brewers on Monday for the second time this season, and he's elected free agency rather than returning to Triple-A. Godley appeared in two games for Milwaukee this season and surrendered six runs on four hits with five strikeouts and five walks over 3.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Zack Godley: Designated for assignment
Godley was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Monday.
Godley has already passed through waivers once this season back in mid-May. He's pitched just twice this season at the big-league level, giving up six earned runs in 3.1 innings, so there's seemingly a good chance he goes unclaimed again. Jake Cousins' contract was selected in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Zack Godley: Contract selected by Brewers
Godley's contract was selected by the Brewers on Friday.
Godley was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville in mid-May after he returned from a finger injury, and he made six appearances (five starts) in the minors. He posted a 2.40 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 30 innings during that time and will now return to the major-league roster after right-hander Eric Yardley was sent down in a corresponding move.... See More ...

Brewers' Zack Godley: Outrighted to Triple-A
Godley was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Godley was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Monday but will now head to the minors after he went unclaimed on waivers. The right-hander allowed four runs (three earned) on one hit and five walks while striking out five in three innings during his lone major-league start this year.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Zack Godley: Reinstated and removed from roster
Godley (finger) was activated from the 10-day injured list Monday and designated for assignment.
Godley made a single start for the Brewers this season, lasting just three innings before exiting with a bruised finger. He'll now be available for any team to claim, but his 6.55 ERA over the last three seasons is unlikely to make him an attractive option.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Zack Godley: Lands on IL
Godley was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a bruised right index finger, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
He said his finger is not broken, just bruised, after injuring it on a bunt attempt Wednesday. Eric Lauer was recalled to start Thursday's game in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Zack Godley: Set to start Wednesday
Manager Craig Counsell announced that Godley will start Wednesday's series finale against the Marlins, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The 31-year-old inked a minor-league deal with the Brewers toward the end of spring training, and he'll make his debut with the club Wednesday while Brett Anderson (hamstring) is on the injured list. Godley struggled with an 8.16 ERA over 28.2 innings for the Red Sox in 2020, but he could stick in the Brewers' rotation with a strong performance versus the Marlins, at least until Anderson recovers....

Brewers' Zack Godley: Dealing with bruised finger
Godley exited Wednesday's game against the Marlins due to a bruised right index finger, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Godley was hit on the index finger on his throwing hand while he was bunting in the third inning and initially remained in the game, but he was later removed in the fourth inning. Godley was starting in place of Brett Anderson (hamstring) on Wednesday, and he struggled with command by issuing five walks in three frames. The severity of Godley's injury is unknown, and it's not yet clear whether he'll make another start, even if he's healthy in time for his next turn through the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Zack Godley: Exits with apparent injury
Godley left Wednesday's game against the Marlins in the fourth inning with an apparent injury, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Godley appeared to be hit on the index finger while bunting in the third inning, but he was able to initially remain in the game. However, he issued a walk to begin the fourth inning and hit Chad Wallach with a pitch prior to leaving the game with a trainer. It's not yet clear whether Godley's departure is related to his finger issue, and whether he's forced to miss additional time remains to be seen. Godley allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit and five walks while striking out five in three innings prior to leaving the game.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Zack Godley: Contract selected ahead of start
Godley's contract was selected by the Brewers on Wednesday.
Godley is slated to start Wednesday's series finale against the Marlins since Brett Anderson (hamstring) is on the injured list. The right-hander made eight appearances (seven starts) for Boston in 2020 and posted an 8.16 ERA and 1.95 WHIP in 28.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Zack Godley: Signs minor-league contract
Godley signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Saturday.
Godley elected free agency in October after refusing an outright assignment to the minors and will have to settle for a minor-league deal with just under two weeks remaining until Opening Day. The right-hander could appear in the majors at some point during the 2021 season but seems likely to begin the year at Triple-A Nashville.... See More ... See Less
Zack Godley: Bound for free agency
Godley (elbow) elected free agency Monday after exercising his right to refuse an outright assignment to the minors, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Godley struggled to an 8.16 ERA in seven starts and one relief appearance before landing on the injured list with a flexor strain in early September. While it's possible the elbow woes contributed to his struggles, he posted a 5.97 ERA in 2019, so his numbers weren't significantly worse than expectations. Heading into his age-31 season and carrying both injury and performance questions, Godley isn't likely to be a particularly appealing option on the free agent market.... See More ... See Less
