Red Sox's Wyatt Mills: Shifts to 15-day IL
Mills (elbow) was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday, retroactive to March 27.
Mills succumbed to right elbow inflammation late in spring training and isn't available for the start of the season. It's unclear how long the 28-year-old will be sidelined, though he shouldn't be expected to be ready to be activated when first eligible April 11.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Wyatt Mills: Dealing with flexor issue
Mills will begin the season on the injured list after being diagnosed with a flexor issue in his right arm Thursday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Mills' injury had previously been referred to as elbow inflammation, but the flexor diagnosis suggests it might be a little more serious. The reliever figures to be shut down for a while before being re-evaluated.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Wyatt Mills: Tending to elbow inflammation
Mills will be shut down for several days after experiencing elbow inflammation coming out of his most recent Grapefruit League appearance March 13, Chad Jennings of The Athletic reports.
Though Mills' injury isn't believed to be a significant one, it'll more than likely take him out of contention for a spot in Boston's Opening Day bullpen. The Red Sox acquired the 27-year-old right-hander in December after he turned in a 4.60 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 26:13 K:BB over 29.1 innings in the majors with Seattle and Kansas City in 2022....

Red Sox's Wyatt Mills: Sent to Boston
Mills was acquired by the Red Sox from the Royals in exchange for Jacob Wallace on Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Mills appeared in 27 games between the Mariners and Royals in 2022 and had a 4.60 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 26:13 K:BB across 29.1 innings. The 27-year-old should see the majors at some point in 2023 even if he doesn't make the Opening Day roster, but he'll likely fill a low-leverage role.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Wyatt Mills: Sent back to minors
The Royals optioned Mills to Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.
Mills' latest stint in the majors lasted just two days, with the right-hander's demotion coming after he struck out three over two scoreless no-hit innings in Saturday's 12-2 win over the Tigers. The Royals recalled Max Castillo -- who is scheduled to start Sunday's series finale -- from Triple-A in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Wyatt Mills: Recalled from Triple-A
Mills was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.
Mills has been dominant out of the bullpen in Triple-A this season with a 1.82 ERA and 1.01 WHIP over 24.2 innings. However, he has bounced back and forth between the majors and minors due to inconsistent play at the major-league level. He is likely to be used in low-leverage situations.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Wyatt Mills: Dispatched to minors
The Royals optioned Mills to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.
He'll cede his spot on the 26-man active roster and in the bullpen to right-hander Joel Payamps (personal), who was reinstated from the bereavement list. Mills turned in a 5.66 ERA and 1.66 WHIP while collecting four holds over his 18 appearances following his July 1 call-up from Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Wyatt Mills: Handed first loss
Mills (0-1) allowed two runs on two hits and struck out two in one inning to take the loss Sunday versus the Blue Jays.
Mills has allowed runs in only two of his seven appearances with the Royals, but both of those outings have seen him tagged for two runs. He gave up a two-run home run to Alejandro Kirk in Sunday's contest, and the Royals couldn't get the right-hander off the hook. Mills now has a 4.70 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB in 15.1 innings between the Royals and the Mariners this season, and he should continue to see a low-leverage role.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Wyatt Mills: Finding success in KC
Mills has a 3.18 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 5.2 innings since he was called up by the Royals.
Mills has kept runs off the board in five of his six appearances, and he's earned two holds. He's been slightly more effective than he was with the Mariners to begin the season. The right-hander owns a 3.77 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB across 14.1 innings between the two teams, though his 2.33 FIP suggests he's seen a little bad luck, which could lead to modest improvements in the second half of the campaign....

Royals' Wyatt Mills: Joins big club
Mills was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Friday.
The right-hander was acquired from Seattle earlier in the week in the Carlos Santana trade, and he will now join the major-league team after just one appearance with the Royals' Triple-A affiliate. Mills pitched to a 4.15 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 6:3 K:BB over 8.2 innings with the Mariners earlier this season. He will start off low on the ladder with Kansas City.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Wyatt Mills: Shipped to Kansas City
The Royals acquired Mills and minor-league right-hander William Fleming from the Mariners on Monday in exchange for first baseman/designated hitter Carlos Santana and cash considerations.
Mills will take Santana's spot on the 40-man roster, but he won't be added to the Royals' 26-man active roster, as top prospect Vinnie Pasquantino will instead get a call-up from Triple-A Omaha to fill the opening at first base. Though he had made eight relief appearances for Seattle, Mills has spent the majority of the season at Triple-A Tacoma. In 19.2 innings with the affiliate, the right-handed reliever submitted a 1.83 ERA and 0.99 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Wyatt Mills: Sent to Triple-A
Mills was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.
Mills had a 1.17 ERA over his first six appearances for Seattle, but he'll head to the minors after giving up three runs in his past two outings. The 27-year-old could rejoin the big-league bullpen later in the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Wyatt Mills: Thriving at big-league level
Mills, who fired a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in a loss to the Rays on Friday, has posted a 1.59 ERA and 0.53 WHIP across 5.2 innings over his first four appearances.
The right-hander has been a pleasant surprise since being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma, where he'd been similarly impressive with a 1.93 ERA and 0.77 WHIP over six appearances. Mills has primarily been utilized in low-leverage scenarios thus far after posting a 9.95 ERA and 2.05 WHIP in 11 outings with the Mariners last season, but that could certainly change if he continues to impress....

Mariners' Wyatt Mills: Recalled by Mariners
Mills was recalled by the Mariners on Thursday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Mills began the season at Triple-A Tacoma and logged a 1.94 ERA and 0.77 WHIP in 9.1 innings during six relief appearances. In spite of his minor-league success early in the year, he's likely to be utilized mainly as a low-leverage reliever after he posted a 9.95 ERA and 2.05 WHIP in 12.2 major-league innings last season....
