Top Ty Buttrey News

  • Ty Buttrey: Pursuing return

    Buttrey announced Sunday that he's hopeful to resume his baseball career in 2022, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Shortly before Opening Day last season, Buttrey said he was planning to retire from professional baseball, citing personal reasons. After a year away from the game, the 28-year-old has apparently changed his stance. The owner of a career 4.30 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over 115 appearances, Buttrey shouldn't have much trouble securing a minor-league deal, at the very least.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Stepping away from baseball

    Buttrey announced via his personal Instagram account Saturday that he is retiring from professional baseball for personal reasons.

    The 28-year-old indicated he initially made his decision to retire before being optioned to the minors March 28, and his mind remained unchanged after taking some additional time to contemplate the decision. Buttrey appeared in 115 games over his three major-league seasons and had a 4.30 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 122:37 K:BB over 115.0 innings.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Taking break from baseball

    Buttrey, who was placed on the restricted list Friday, has chosen to walk away from the game for the time being, according to manager Joe Maddon, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

    He was optioned to minor-league camp March 28, but apparently did not accept the assignment to the alternate training site. It sounds like Buttrey is unhappy with his current standing in the Angels organization and is contemplating his options. He should be considered out indefinitely.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: On restricted list

    Buttrey has been placed on the restricted list and didn't report to the alternate training site, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

    He was optioned to minor-league camp March 28, and it sounds like he might have taken issue with that demotion. Consider him away from the team until his status is cleared up.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Gets demoted

    The Angels optioned Buttrey to their minor-league camp Sunday.

    After accruing 11 saves and 34 holds across the past three seasons, Buttrey appeared in good shape to make the Opening Day roster as a high-leverage reliever for Anaheim. While he wasn't especially sharp this spring (3.86 ERA, 1.86 WHIP in seven innings), Buttrey's demotion still comes as a surprise. Offseason pickup Raisel Iglesias is locked in as the Angels' closer, but the bullpen looks quite unsettled after the top option.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Yields three runs Sunday

    Buttrey gave up three runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out two in one inning against the Padres in a Cactus League contest Sunday.

    An inning-opening error meant that only one of the runs Buttrey allowed was earned, but it was still a rough outing for the right-hander as he gave up four hits, including two doubles. Buttrey should open the season in the Angels' bullpen but isn't likely to match the five saves he snagged last season given the presence of new closer Raisel Iglesias.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: On hook for loss

    Buttrey (1-3) was charged with three runs on two hits and a walk over one-third of an inning in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

    Buttrey got Matt Kemp to fly out to start his appearance, but he followed that with a solo home run by Ryan McMahon. Buttrey then allowed a double to Josh Fuentes and walked Daniel Murphy. Jose Quijada relieved Buttrey and the former gave up a two-out grand slam to Charlie Blackmon to complete the implosion by the Angels' bullpen. The poor outing inflated Buttrey's ERA to 6.04 with a 1.43 WHIP in 22.1 innings this year. The right-hander has five saves, but he's also blown four save chances. Felix Pena pitched a clean eighth inning prior to Buttrey's meltdown -- it might be Pena getting the nod for the Angels' next save chance.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Converts save

    Buttrey struck out one and nailed down the save Saturday against the Astros after tossing a scoreless inning in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Buttrey bounced back after a woeful performance Friday, when he was unable to get the job done despite holding a three-run lead. Buttrey has blown three saves already this season and, while Saturday's performance might have bought him a bit more time as the Angels' closer, his role might be in jeopardy if he continues to be as inconsistent as he's been all season long.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Allows three runs in ninth

    Buttrey failed to earn the save against the Astros on Friday, allowing three runs on three hits while recording one out.

    Buttrey entered the ninth inning in a save situation and was pulled after giving up two runs and the Angels still leading by one. Unfortunately, his replacement Matt Andriese allowed Buttrey's third baserunner to score. Buttrey may have narrowly escaped a blown save, but his job could be in jeopardy due to his recent ninth inning struggles. On the season, the right-hander has four saves to go with a 5.68 ERA and 1.47 WHIP.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Takes loss in relief

    Buttrey (1-2) was tagged with the loss Wednesday against the Padres. He allowed three runs on three hits and struck out one batter in two-thirds of an inning.

    Buttrey was coming off back-to-back scoreless outings, but he has now allowed runs in four of his last six appearances. The right-hander has a 4.63 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 1.5 HR/9 in his last 10 outings, but he should still be considered a top option for saves in Anaheim, if mostly by default.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Converts save

    Buttrey picked up his fourth save of the season Friday against the Mariners. He allowed one run on two hits and a walk across 1.1 innings.

    Buttrey didn't strike out a single batter and struggled with his control after tossing just six of his 13 pitches for strikes, but the still got the job done. Buttrey has allowed runs in each of his last three appearances off the bullpen but has converted his last four save chances, so he seems to have the closer role locked down for the foreseeable future.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Takes loss

    Buttrey (1-1) allowed one unearned on one hit while striking out one Sunday against the Athletics.

    It was a tough-luck loss for Buttrey, who allowed only a single to the first batter he faced in the 10th inning. With runners on first and third, he allowed a sacrifice fly to Mark Canha to end the game. Buttrey has converted each of the Angels' last three save chances and has had little trouble in a ninth-inning role. He appears to be the primary closer for the team, but the Angels have won only nine games this season, limiting his chances.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Secures two-inning save

    Buttrey had one strikeout and didn't allow a baserunner over two innings to earn the save in Oakland on Saturday.

    The right-hander allowed runs in three of his first four outings of the season to be charged with three blown saves, but in his last seven appearances he's given up three hits with a 4:2 K:BB over 7.2 scoreless frames while converting all three save chances. Buttrey has a 2.84 ERA and 1.18 WHIP for the season, though his 10 percent strikeout rate is far below the 27-plus percent he posted over the previous two seasons.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Picks up win in relief

    Buttrey (1-0) earned the win Monday against the Giants after tossing a scoreless ninth inning.

    Buttrey came into the game with the Angels down by one run, and he needed 19 pitches -- 12 strikes -- to record all three outs. The right-hander has now gone six straight games without allowing a run, posting a 0.88 WHIP and fanning three across 5.2 innings during that stretch. He looks to be solidifying his spot in the ninth.

  • Angels' Ty Buttrey: Earns second save of season

    Buttrey notched the save Monday against the Athletics. He tossed a scoreless inning, allowing one hit and striking out two.

    Buttrey struck out Matt Chapman and allowed a single to Mark Canha, but he closed the door quickly -- he fanned Robbie Grossman and induced a Stephen Piscotty lineout to earn his second save of the season. The Angels are handling the closer situation with a committee-based approach, but Buttrey seems to lead that committee after notching saves in two of his last three appearances.
