  • Reds' Connor Overton: Lands minor-league deal

    Overton (shoulder) signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Overton made his major-league debut in 2021 and logged a 4.70 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 15.1 innings across nine appearances (three starts) with the Pirates and Blue Jays. It's unlikely that his late-season shoulder injury will limit him to begin the 2022 campaign, and he'll serve as a non-roster invitee during spring training.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Falls off 40-man roster

    Overton (shoulder) was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

    Overton made his big-league debut in 2021, posting an unremarkable 4.70 ERA in three starts and six relief appearances. He hit the injured list with a strained shoulder in late September, though he's expected to resume throwing sometime in November, giving him plenty of time to be ready to go by spring training.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Should start throwing in November

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Overton (shoulder) is expected to resume throwing in early-to-mid November, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Overton was shuttered for the season on Tuesday after being diagnosed with a right shoulder strain, but after taking the next month or so to rest up and recover, he should be in store for a relatively normal offseason. In nine big-league appearances (three starts) between Toronto and Pittsburgh this season, Overton submitted a 4.70 ERA and 1.24 WHIP across 15.1 innings.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Placed on 10-day injured list

    Overton was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right shoulder strain Tuesday, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Overton started Monday's game against the Reds and gave up four runs on six hits while striking out two in one inning to take the loss. However, he apparently sustained a shoulder injury that will force him to miss the remainder of the season. The right-hander had lined up to serve as the opener during a game in the Pirates' weekend series against Cincinnati, and it's not yet clear who will start in his place. Overton made nine appearances (three starts) with the Blue Jays and Pirates this year and recorded a 4.70 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 15.1 innings.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Yields four runs in loss

    Overton (0-1) allowed four runs on six hits and took a loss against the Reds on Monday. He struck out two in one inning of work.

    Overton needed 39 pitches to get through just one inning of work. He coughed up four runs, including a two-run homer by Joey Votto. The 28-year-old has now given up eight runs across 3.2 innings over his last two outings, raising his season ERA to 4.70. Overton is projected to work as the opener again this weekend at home against the Reds.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Picking up third start

    Overton is listed as the Pirates' scheduled starter for Monday's game against the Reds in Cincinnati, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Overton will return to the hill on three days' rest, as he most recently covered 2.2 innings while starting in a bullpen game in a 12-6 loss to the Phillies on Thursday. Due to the quick turnaround, Overton isn't expected to work deep into Monday's outing regardless of how he performs, which could make it difficult for him to qualify for a win. After the start against the Reds, Overton will tentatively line up for his second turn of the week in a rematch with Cincinnati in Pittsburgh over the weekend.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Struggles as starter

    Overton started Thursday's 12-6 loss to Philadelphia, allowing four runs on two hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 2.2 innings. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Overton was on tap to open Wednesday's game but a rainout delayed his start one game and enabled him to pitch more than just two innings. The 28-year-old started strong by recording six consecutive outs -- four via the strikeout -- but permitted four runs in the third before being removed, which were his first runs allowed in 14.1 innings this season. Despite the rough outing, Overton still owns a 2.51 ERA and 0.91 WHIP with 13 strikeouts and potentially lines up for another start next week against the Cubs.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: On track to start Thursday

    Overton is listed as the Pirates' starting pitcher for Thursday's game against the Phillies in Philadelphia, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Overton had been in line to serve as an opening pitcher as part of a bullpen game Wednesday against the Reds, but the contest was postponed due to inclement weather in Cincinnati. Though he'll get an extra day to rest up, Overton is still likely to have a restricted workload Thursday after he tossed an inning out of the bullpen in Monday's game against the Reds.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Pirates-Reds rained out Wednesday

    Overton and the Pirates won't face the Reds on Wednesday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in Cincinnati.

    The two teams will make up the contest next Monday, the lone mutual off day remaining in their respective 2021 schedules. In light of the postponement, expect the Pirates to skip Overton's turn in the rotation, as the team had planned to treat Wednesday's contest as a bullpen day featuring the right-hander as more of an opener than a traditional starter.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Draws start in bullpen day

    Overton is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Reds in what's expected to be a bullpen day for the Pirates, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    After he was capped at three innings (47 pitches) in his first MLB start Sept. 16 against the Reds, Overton then appeared out of the bullpen in Monday's series opener in Cincinnati, tossing a scoreless frame. Because he pitched just two days ago, Overton probably won't surpass the three innings he covered in his first start. As such, Overton is unlikely to factor into any decision Wednesday.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Three scoreless frames in debut

    Overton held the Reds scoreless across three innings during Thursday's no-decision. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three.

    It was a strong debut for the 28-year-old, who has yet to allow a run through his first 10.2 innings at the major-league level. As expected, Overton took on a light load for his first start, tossing 42 pitches (31 for strikes) over three frames. The right-hander will look to get further stretched out during his next outing, which projects for a rematch with Cincinnati on the road next week, assuming he remains in the starting rotation.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Set for first MLB start

    Overton will start Thursday's game against the Reds, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Overton pitched one inning out of the bullpen Sunday after being claimed off waivers by Pittsburgh, and he'll now make his first big-league start Thursday. The 28-year-old isn't fully built up and is unlikely to have the workload of a traditional starter. He has yet to allow a run through his first 7.2 frames in the majors.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Recalled by Pittsburgh

    Overton was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.

    Overton was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Monday, and he allowed no hits and a walk while striking out two in one scoreless inning during his lone appearance in Indianapolis. He tossed 6.2 scoreless innings across four relief appearances with the Blue Jays earlier in the year.

  • Pirates' Connor Overton: Claimed by Pirates

    Overton was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Monday, Jamie Campbell of Sportsnet reports.

    Overton was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday, but he'll land a spot on Pittsburgh's 40-man roster after he tossed 6.2 scoreless innings across four appearances in the big leagues this year. The right-hander has spent most of the season with the Triple-A club and has been optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

  • Blue Jays' Connor Overton: DFA'd by Toronto

    Overton was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday.

    Overton was recalled by the Blue Jays on Aug. 27, but he didn't make any appearances during his week in the majors. The right-hander has allowed four hits and two walks while striking out four in 6.2 scoreless innings in the big leagues this year, but he'll be removed from the 40-man roster as part of a move after left-hander Kirby Snead was recalled Friday.

  • Blue Jays' Connor Overton: Back in big leagues

    Overton was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo prior to Friday's game against Detroit.

    Overton was sent down to Buffalo on Wednesday, but he will return to the big leagues just two days later with Brad Hand going on the bereavement list. The right-hander has pitched well during four major-league appearances this season, allowing just four hits and two walks while striking out four across 6.2 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Connor Overton: Returns to minors

    Overton was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The righty heads to Buffalo after throwing three scoreless innings of relief Tuesday against the White Sox. Overton's roster spot was required to activate Joakim Soria from the injured list, but he hasn't allowed a run in four appearances and could find himself back with the Blue Jays in the near future.
