Top Keynan Middleton News

  • Diamondbacks' Keynan Middleton: Called up by Diamondbacks

    Middleton was called up from Triple-A Reno on Monday, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.

    Middleton will take the place of Ian Kennedy (leg), who was placed on the injured list in the corresponding move. Middleton tossed four scoreless frames over his last five big-league appearances, but don't expect him to occupy a prominent role in Arizona's bullpen.

  • Diamondbacks' Keynan Middleton: Reinstated, sent down Friday

    Middleton (elbow) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Middleton made a relief appearance in Reno on Thursday, and he struck out one in a scoreless inning. However, the right-hander will remain with the minor-league club now that he's healthy after Taylor Widener was called up Friday.

  • Diamondbacks' Keynan Middleton: Scheduled for rehab appearance

    Middleton (elbow) will throw one inning in a rehab appearance for Triple-A Reno on Thursday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Middleton, who has been sidelined since May 16, threw a bullpen session earlier this week, per Piecoro and Jose M. Romero of the Arizona Republic, suggesting a rehab stint was in the offing. The right-hander strung together five straight scoreless appearances before suffering the injury.

  • Diamondbacks' Keynan Middleton: Out with elbow inflammation

    Middleton was placed on the 15-day injured list with right elbow inflammation after Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

    Middleton presumably suffered the injury during his last appearance Monday, when he walked one batter during a scoreless inning. It's unclear exactly how long he'll be sidelined, but given it's an elbow injury, an absence beyond the 15-day minimum wouldn't be surprising.

  • Diamondbacks' Keynan Middleton: Takes loss in season debut

    Middleton (0-1) took the loss Sunday versus the Cardinals. He allowed two runs on two hits and struck out two in two-thirds of an inning.

    Middleton allowed an inherited runner to score on Harrison Bader's two-run home run. He also allowed a solo shot to Nolan Arenado. This was an unimpressive season debut for Middleton, who had shown promise with Triple-A Reno with a 1.17 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 7.2 innings before his contract was selected Friday. The right-hander had a 4.94 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 31 major-league innings with the Mariners last year, so he shouldn't be expected to see many premium opportunities while on the Diamondbacks' roster.

  • Diamondbacks' Keynan Middleton: Contract selected

    Middleton's contract was selected from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Middleton owns a career 3.84 ERA in 126.2 major-league innings, though that mark sits at 5.02 across 43.0 frames since the start of the 2020 season. He'll give Arizona another bullpen option with Mark Melancon landing on the COVID-19 injured list.

  • Diamondbacks' Keynan Middleton: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    Middleton was reassigned to minor-league spring training Thursday.

    Middleton tossed three scoreless innings across four relief appearances this spring, but he was unable to secure a spot in the Diamondbacks' bullpen to begin the regular season. The right-hander made 32 appearances (one start) for Seattle last year, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him return to the big leagues at some point in 2022.

  • Diamondbacks' Keynan Middleton: Signs minor-league contract

    Middleton signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

    Middleton made 32 appearances (one start) with the Mariners during the 2021 campaign and earned four saves while posting a 4.94 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 31 innings. However, he was cast off the 40-man roster in August and will now attempt to carve out a role with Arizona heading into the 2022 season.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Outrighted to minors

    The Mariners outrighted Middleton to Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    The righty went unclaimed on waivers after being designated for assignment Thursday. With a 4.94 ERA in 31 innings this season, Middleton has pitched well enough to get another opportunity with Seattle if injuries create an opening in the bullpen.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Optioned to Triple-A

    Middleton was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.

    Middleton rejoined Seattle's bullpen on June 24, but he had inconsistent results since the All-Star break. The righty posted a 7.88 ERA and 2.88 WHIP in eight innings across his last nine appearances and will attempt to get back on track with the minor-league club. Casey Sadler was reinstated from the paternity list to take his place in the bullpen.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: DFA'd by Seattle

    The Mariners designated Middleton for assignment Thursday.

    Seattle removed Middleton from the 40-man roster to clear a spot for veteran reliever Sean Doolittle, whom the Mariners claimed off waivers from Cincinnati. Before he was demoted to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Middleton made 32 appearances for Seattle, logging a 4.94 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 31 innings while collecting four saves and three holds.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Takes loss in extra innings

    Middleton (0-2) was tagged with the loss in relief Friday against the Yankees after giving up an unearned run on one hit and one walk while striking out one across two-thirds of an inning.

    Middleton pitched the bottom of the 11th inning and while he intentionally walked Rougned Odor, he also recorded two outs when he retired Gleyber Torres and Kyle Higashioka. However, he allowed the walkoff RBI when Brett Gardner singled to center, scoring Joey Gallo. Middleton hasn't been a reliable presence out of the bullpen for the Mariners of late and has given up runs in five of his last seven appearances.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Tagged with loss as opener

    Middleton (0-1) took the loss Wednesday, surrendering five runs on five hits and a walk over one inning in a 6-3 loss to the Rockies. He struck out one.

    Deployed as an opener for the first time in his big-league career, Middleton looked decidedly uncomfortable in the role as Colorado smoked a barrage of line drives off the right-hander, with the biggest blow being a bases-loaded double by Dom Nunez. Middleton now has a 10.38 ERA for Seattle since the beginning of June, managing only a 4:4 K:BB through 8.2 innings in that time, and he'll remain in a low-leverage role until he can find some consistency.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Opening Wednesday

    Middleton will start Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Middleton will make the first start of his major-league career while serving as the opener in the series finale at Colorado. The right-hander has given up one run over 5.2 frames since returning from the injured list in late June. Chris Flexen is likely to work as the primary pitcher Wednesday.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Impressive since return to majors

    Middleton owns a 1.93 ERA across the 4.2 innings covering his four appearances since being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on June 24.

    Middleton has been able to carry over the momentum he generated during his latest stint with the Rainiers, posting a trio of scoreless efforts since his return to the big-league club. The right-hander has made some fantasy impact this season with four saves and three holds, but his 16:11 K:BB across 23 innings does have ample room for improvement.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Scoreless effort in majors return

    Middleton fired a scoreless fifth inning during a loss to the White Sox on Sunday, issuing two walks and recording a strikeout.

    The big right-hander was just recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday, and Sunday marked his first majors appearance since June 9. Middleton struggled through his last two appearances before his demotion, but he was solid over three outings with the Rainiers (4 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 7:2 K:BB).

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Recalled by Mariners

    Middleton was recalled by the Mariners on Thursday.

    Middleton made three minor-league appearances (one start) after he was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma, and he allowed one run over five hits and two walks while striking out seven in four innings. The right-hander posted a 4.42 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 18.1 innings with the Mariners earlier in the season, and he picked up four saves and three holds. While Kendall Graveman has been the slight favorite for save chances recently, Middleton could factor into some late-game situations if he performs well during his return to the big-league bullpen.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Sent to Triple-A

    Middleton was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

    The 27-year-old has four saves and three holds for Seattle this season, but he'll make a trip to the minors after surrendering five runs (four earned) across his past two outings. Middleton hasn't been terrible this season with a 4.42 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 14:9 K:BB over 16.2 innings, but the Mariners opted to demote him with closer Kendall Graveman (undisclosed) returning from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Notches fourth save

    Middleton worked a perfect ninth inning and earned a save over the Rangers on Sunday.

    Middleton needed just five pitches to retire the Rangers in order and pick up his fourth save of the season Sunday. He's allowed just one run over his last 13.1 innings, lowering his season ERA to 2.76. The 27-year-old also has three holds and has yet to blow a save chance.

  • Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Gets third hold

    Middleton secured his third hold in a win over the Rangers on Friday, allowing a hit and a walk over two-thirds of an inning while also recording a strikeout.

    Middleton got the first two outs of the eighth inning on 19 pitches before giving way to Erik Swanson. The scoreless effort was the fourth in a row for the reliever, who's also recorded his third save and lowered his ERA from 3.86 to 2.93 over that span.
