Rays' Aaron Slegers: Cut from big-league camp
The Rays reassigned Slegers to minor-league camp Monday.
Slegers was one of 11 players optioned or reassigned Monday as the Rays pare down their big-league camp group ahead of Opening Day. Before inking a two-year, minor-league deal with Tampa Bay last August, the 29-year-old made 29 relief appearances for the Angels in 2021. Over 31 innings at the big-league level, he posted a 6.97 ERA and 1.87 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Aaron Slegers: Signs minor-league deal with Rays
Slegers signed a two-year minor-league contract with the Rays on Tuesday which includes an invitation to next year's spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Multi-year minor-league deals are rare, but this one makes sense given the timing. Slegers finds himself back with an organization where he's had success in the past, as he produced a 3.41 ERA in 29 innings for the Rays in 2019 and 2020. He owns a poor 5.46 career ERA and had a 6.97 ERA in 31 innings for the Angels earlier this year, however, so he'll head to the minors to sort things out for now.... See More ... See Less
Aaron Slegers: Opts for free agency
Slegers elected to become a free agent after clearing waivers and being outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.
The right-hander struggled with the Angels this season, posting a 6.97 ERA and 1.87 WHIP across 31 innings. He enjoyed a much stronger campaign with Tampa Bay in 2020, so he could draw some interest from an organization that believes it can help turn Slegers back around.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Aaron Slegers: Outrighted to Triple-A
Slegers cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.
Slegers was designated for assignment by the Halos last week, but he'll stick around the organization after going through waivers unclaimed. The 28-year-old has a 6.97 ERA in 29 big-league appearances and a 6.43 ERA in 16 outings at Triple-A this season.... See More ... See Less

Angels' Aaron Slegers: Hit hard in long-relief outing
Slegers allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two batters versus the Tigers on Thursday.
Starter Jose Quintana was pummeled for six runs (five earned) over 1.1 innings of work, so Slegers was called upon in the second frame to try to restore order. The right-hander didn't fare much better, yielding four runs of his own and serving up a pair of long balls, though the Angels would rally from an eight-run deficit to pull out a wild win. Slegers' appearance was his first since being recalled from the minors Wednesday. He has struggled in his first campaign with the Angels, posting a 6.97 ERA, 1.87 WHIP and poor 25:15 K:BB across 31 innings.... See More ... See Less

Angels' Aaron Slegers: Back with big club
Slegers was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake prior to Wednesday's game against the Yankees.
This will mark Slegers' third stint with the Angels this season. The right-hander posted an ugly 6.43 during his previous 21 major-league innings to begin the campaign, though that number is largely inflated by his four runs allowed in just one-third of an inning against Oakland on May 27. James Hoyt was optioned to Salt Lake in a corresponding roster move.... See More ... See Less

Angels' Aaron Slegers: Lit up in loss
Slegers (2-2) allowed four runs on three hits and a walk while recording only one out via strikeout in a loss to Oakland on Thursday.
Spot starter Patrick Sandoval delivered five shutout innings Thursday, but Slegers made a mess of the sixth inning. Slegers had strung together five scoreless innings prior to Thursday's meltdown. The 28-year-old has a 6.30 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 19:10 K:BB across 20 innings this year, mainly in a low-leverage role. He's added a hold and two blown saves in 23 outings.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Aaron Slegers: Takes first loss in relief
Slegers (2-1) allowed two earned runs on one hit and one walk while recording just one out, taking the loss against the Astros on Tuesday.
Slegers entered a tie game in the eighth inning Tuesday and only retired one of the three batters he faced. Both runners he was responsible for ended up scoring on a three-run homer by Yuli Gurriel. Slegers has now walked at least one batter in five straight relief appearances. This is a new issue for the 27-year-old, as he didn't allow a single walk in his first 11 appearances this season. In the month of May, he's issued seven walks while only striking out two.... See More ... See Less

Slegers (2-0) pitched 1.1 scoreless innings, walking two batters en route to earn the win over the Dodgers on Sunday.

He is not a high-strikeout candidate, with a 7.5 K/9. In addition, he's run into trouble recently, walking six batters in his last 4.1 innings of relief.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Aaron Slegers: Earns first win of season
Slegers (1-0) got the win in Friday's 10-3 victory over the Twins, allowing one run on three hits while registering two outs.
Slegers entered the game in the sixth inning with two runners on base and one out on the board. The Twins would notch three straight hits off Slegers, who allowed three runs to score and lost the lead in the process before finishing the inning. The 28-year-old would get some help from his offense in the bottom of the sixth innings as the Angels immediately scored to regain the lead and set Slegers up with the win. On the season, the righty has a 4.26 ERA and has yet to walk a batter across seven appearances.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Aaron Slegers: Claims final bullpen spot
Slegers has earned a spot in the Angels' bullpen, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Slegers missed much of camp with a back issue and tossed only six innings in Cactus League play, but he showed enough to nail down the team's final bullpen spot. The right-hander will likely begin the season in a low-leverage role but could certainly move up in the pecking order given the shakiness of the Angels' bullpen behind closer Raisel Iglesias....
