Tigers' Trey Wingenter: Inks deal with Detroit
Wingenter (back) signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Sunday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Wingenter's deal includes an invitation to big-league spring training, where the 28-year-old should get the chance to compete for a spot in Detroit's Opening Day bullpen. After undergoing back surgery in September 2021, Wingenter was non-tendered by the Padres and caught on with the Reds on a minor-league deal last offseason. Wingenter never ended up seeing action for any of the Reds' minor-league affiliates in 2022, but he was presumably able to pass his physical with Detroit and should report to spring training at full health. Over 73 career relief appearances in the majors, Wingenter owns a 5.14 ERA and 20.1 K-BB%.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Trey Wingenter: Sent to minors camp
The Reds reassigned Wingenter (elbow) to minor-league camp Sunday.
Wingenter's chances of breaking camp with the Reds were dashed after he was shut down with elbow soreness a few days ago.

Wingenter appears to have avoided a serious injury since an MRI came back clean, but he'll still be unavailable for Opening Day. The 27-year-old is in camp as a non-roster invitee, and it's unclear whether he'll get a chance with the big-league club once healthy.... See More ... See Less

Padres' Trey Wingenter: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
Wingenter underwent Tommy John surgery Friday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
The reliever was originally prescribed nothing but extra rest by team doctors after experiencing elbow irritation last week, but the injury was evidently far worse than originally feared. The timing of his surgery means that he'll have at best an outside shot at returning very late in the 2021 season, with the most likely outcome being that he's not back in game action until 2022....

Padres' Trey Wingenter: To be re-evaluated this weekend
Wingenter (elbow) has been prescribed extra rest by team doctors and won't be re-evaluated until this weekend, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Wingenter dealt with a shoulder issue in spring training but appeared to be healthy at the start of summer camp. However, he developed elbow irritation last week and was subsequently shut down. Given the timeframe of his re-evaluation and the rapidly approaching start to the regular season, it is highly unlikely that Wingenter will be part of the Opening Day bullpen.... See More ...

Padres' Trey Wingenter: Out with shoulder injury
Wingenter is dealing with a shoulder injury and recently had a cortisone injection, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Sanders says that Wingenter isn't particularly close to pitching in games, so it sounds inevitable that he will open the year on the injured list. He is a hard thrower who has the stuff to pitch in the late innings, but he'd still have been fifth or sixth at best in the pecking order in this loaded bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Trey Wingenter: Back in big leagues
Wingenter was recalled from Double-A Amarillo on Sunday.
Wingenter has thrown 46.1 innings for the Padres this season, struggling ti a 5.05 ERA. His strong 33.2 percent strikeout rate hasn't been enough to overcome a poor 13.3 percent walk rate or a low 34.3 percent groundball rate.... See More ... See Less

Padres' Trey Wingenter: Gives up three runs
Wingenter gave up three runs on one hit and two walks while striking out two through 1.1 innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Serving as the opener in a bullpen game, Wingenter retired the first three batters he faced before allowing three baserunners in the second inning before his quick exit. The right-hander was technically making his first professional start at any level, even though this was obviously intended to be a limited outing. The right-hander has an 8.64 ERA with a 1.68 WHIP in his last nine appearances.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Trey Wingenter: Working as opener in bullpen game
Wingenter will serve as the Padres' opening pitcher for Wednesday's series finale versus the Dodgers, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
While the right-hander will be making the first start of his career at either the major- or minor-league level, he's not expected to work more than an inning or two before giving way to the bullpen. The Padres haven't named a primary pitcher behind Wingenter, so it's likely that manager Andy Green will take a "Johnny Wholestaff" approach to the series finale and mix and match with several different relievers. Wingenter owns a 4.60 ERA and 63:24 K:BB over 45 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
