Top Jake Woodford News

  • Pirates' Jake Woodford: Set to join Pittsburgh

    Woodford agreed to a minor-league contract with the Pirates on Monday, Robert Murray of reports.

    The deal isn't official yet, but Woodford will presumably settle in as a member of the rotation at Triple-A Indianapolis with his new organization. Woodford, 27, recently elected free agency in lieu of accepting an outright assignment with the White Sox after he held a 10.80 ERA and 7:5 K:BB over 8.1 innings with the big club.

  • Jake Woodford: Elects free agency

    Woodford rejected the White Sox's outright assignment to Triple-A Charlotte and elected to become a free agent Sunday, Vinnie Duber of reports.

    The right-hander was recently designated for assignment and won't stick with Chicago after he passed through waivers unclaimed. Woodford posted a 5.26 ERA in 10 starts at Triple-A and allowed 10 earned runs with a 7:5 K:BB over 8.1 innings during his brief stay on the big-league roster.

  • White Sox's Jake Woodford: Struggles against Red Sox

    Woodford (0-2) allowed seven runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out three over four innings to take the loss Thursday versus the Red Sox.

    Woodford has failed to pitch past the fifth inning in both of his starts for the White Sox so far. The Red Sox jumped on him right away Thursday, with Jarren Duran leading off the game with a solo home run. Enmanuel Valdez added a three-run shot in the fourth inning. Woodford doesn't have a great track record as a starter in the majors, but he could remain in the rotation for another turn, as Mike Clevinger (elbow) will require a rehab start before returning. Woodford is lined up for a road start in Seattle next week if the White Sox give him another outing.

  • White Sox's Jake Woodford: Designated for assignment

    The White Sox designated Woodford for assignment Friday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The move comes one day after Woodford was torched for seven runs on 10 hits and three walks over four innings in a loss to the Red Sox. He's being replaced on the roster by Jonathan Cannon, who will also likely take Woodford's spot in the rotation.

  • White Sox's Jake Woodford: Getting second start

    Woodford is scheduled to start Thursday's game against the Red Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field.

    The White Sox called Woodford up from Triple-A Charlotte last week to fill the opening in the rotation that was created by Mike Clevinger's (elbow) placement on the 15-day injured list. Woodford's White Sox debut wasn't a memorable one -- he gave up three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings in a May 28 loss to the Blue Jays -- but he'll get at least one more turn through the rotation while the team waits on Clevinger's return.

  • White Sox's Jake Woodford: Takes loss in 2024 debut

    Woodford (0-1) took the loss Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks across 4.1 innings. He struck out four.

    Woodford was brought up from Triple-A Charlotte to replace Mike Clevinger (elbow) on the back end of the White Sox rotation. The 27-year-old yielded all three runs in the second frame, allowing a single, a walk and two doubles to consecutive batters with two outs. Although it's unclear if the White Sox plan on keeping Woodford around for the duration of Clevinger's IL stint, he's currently in line for a start against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Tuesday.

  • White Sox's Jake Woodford: Promoted to start Tuesday

    Woodford is having his contract selected from Triple-A Charlotte and will start Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Vinnie Duber of reports.

    The right-hander joined the White Sox on a minor-league deal in January and will receive his first look in the big leagues this year as Mike Clevinger (elbow) heads to the injured list. Woodford posteed a 6.23 ERA over 47.2 innings for St. Louis in 2023, and he hasn't pitched particularly well for Charlotte this year with a 5.26 ERA and 42:17 K:BB in 10 starts.

  • White Sox's Jake Woodford: Signs minors deal with White Sox

    Woodford signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Wednesday and received an invitation to major-league spring training, Robert Murray of reports.

    Woodford turned in solid campaigns in 2021 and 2022, but his ERA shot up to 6.23 through 47.2 innings last season, and he was non-tendered by St. Louis as a result. If Woodford is able to return to form during spring training, the White Sox's weak bullpen presents an opportunity for the 27-year-old righty to see plenty of innings this year.

  • Jake Woodford: Hits free agency

    Woodford was non-tendered by the Cardinals on Friday.

    Woodford, 27, will head into free agency after registering a rough 6.23 ERA and 29:22 K:BB over 47.2 innings (eight starts, seven relief appearances) this past season with St. Louis.

  • Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Optioned to FCL

    The Cardinals optioned Woodford to the Florida Complex League on Saturday.

    After giving up seven runs in 1.2 frames during his last start Friday, Woodford will be cast off the active roster in favor of James Naile, who will give the Cardinals additional bullpen depth for their final two games. Woodford will finish 2023 with a 6.23 ERA and 1.74 WHIP through 47.2 innings -- both sharp increases from his 2.23 ERA and 1.12 WHIP last season.

  • Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Crushed in short outing

    Woodford (2-3) took the loss Friday after yielding seven runs on six hits and a walk over 1.2 innings in a 19-2 loss to the Reds. He failed to strike out a batter.

    Woodford gave up three home runs before being chased from the game. He returned from the injured list earlier this month and allowed just one run over 6.1 frames in two appearances before Friday's misstep. Woodford finishes the 2023 season with an unsightly 6.23 ERA and 29:22 K:BB through 47.2 innings.

  • Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Draws another start

    Woodford is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Reds at Busch Stadium.

    Woodford will make a second straight turn through the rotation in what will likely mark his final appearance of 2023. In his return from Triple-A Memphis last weekend in San Diego, Woodford struck out one over 3.2 innings and gave up one earned run on four hits and two walks. He threw 78 pitches in that outing, so Woodford should be fully stretched out Friday.

  • Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Turns in short start Saturday

    Woodford allowed a run on four hits and two walks while striking out one over 3.2 innings in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Padres in 11 innings. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Woodford worked up to 78 pitches (46 strikes) and limited the damage to a Manny Machado RBI single in the first inning. This was Woodford's seventh start in 14 appearances, but his first major-league start since April, as shoulder injuries and stints in the bullpen and minors have kept him out of a starting role. He's now at a 5.09 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 29:21 K:BB through 46 innings this season. It's uncertain if Woodford will start again in 2023 -- he was filling in for Adam Wainwright, who could make his final career start at home versus the Reds next weekend.

  • Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Slated to start Saturday

    The Cardinals list Woodford as their probable starting pitcher for Saturday's game against the Padres in San Diego.

    Before he was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Monday, Woodford had been getting stretched out as a starter in the minors, covering no fewer than three innings in any of his last four outings. However, the Cardinals deployed him out of the bullpen against Milwaukee on Tuesday, when he struck out three over 2.2 scoreless innings. Though he'll be starting Saturday, Woodford will be taking the hill on three days' rest, so he probably can't be expected to cover the five innings he would need to hit to qualify for a win. Woodford will be taking the rotation spot of Adam Wainwright, who isn't scheduled to start this weekend but could work out of the bullpen if the Cardinals need someone to eat innings once Woodford exits the contest.

  • Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Summoned from Triple-A

    The Cardinals recalled Woodford from Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

    He'll be joining the St. Louis bullpen as a replacement for right-hander Giovanny Gallegos, who was placed on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder rotator cuff tendinitis. Woodford will make his return to St. Louis' active roster for the first time since late June, as he was on the shelf for just over two months before being activated and optioned to Triple-A on Sept. 1. Since beginning his rehab assignment Aug. 10, Woodford has been getting stretched out during his time in the minors, making seven appearances over the past five weeks while pitching to a 2.18 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 28:9 K:BB over 20.2 innings.

  • Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Activated, optioned to Memphis

    The Cardinals reinstated Woodford (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list Friday and optioned him to Triple-A Memphis, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    A right shoulder strain forced Woodford onto the IL in late June, and he'll now remain in the minors upon completing his rehab assignment. The 26-year-old righty accumulated a 5.67 ERA and 1.69 WHIP through 39.2 frames with St. Louis, but he could potentially return to the majors as a depth piece if he keeps performing well in Triple-A (2.08 ERA, 1.15 WHIP).

  • Cardinals' Jake Woodford: Strikes out six in rehab outing

    Woodford (shoulder) struck out six and worked around two hits and one walk in 3.1 scoreless innings in his latest rehab appearance Tuesday with Triple-A Memphis.

    Woodford had started in each of his previous four rehab outings, but he worked in relief behind Matthew Liberatore (back) on Tuesday. The right-hander still tossed 66 pitches (40 strikes) in the extended relief appearance, as the Cardinals appear to be entertaining the possibility of bringing Woodford back as a member of the rotation once he's reinstated from the 15-day injured list. Before landing on the IL in late June, Woodford had been working out of the bullpen, but the Cardinals could view him as an upgrade over some of their current back-end rotation options.
