Marlins' Zach Pop: Moves to minors
The Marlins optioned Pop to Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Pop was sent down to the minors and Shawn Armstrong was designated for assignment as the Marlins reduced their active roster from 28 to 26 players ahead of Monday's deadline. The right-hander's demotion comes just one day after he made his 2022 debut for the big club, as Pop gave up two earned runs on three hits in an inning of relief in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Mariners....

Marlins' Zach Pop: Joins big club
The Marlins recalled Pop from Triple-A Jacksonville on Thursday, Byron Kerr of MLB.com reports.
He'll enter the bullpen as a replacement for lefty Daniel Castano, who was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move. The promotion to the big leagues is the first of the season for Pop, who turned in a 4.12 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 51:24 K:BB across 54.2 innings in his 50 appearances for the Marlins as a rookie last year....

Marlins' Zach Pop: Optioned to Triple-A
Pop was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Miami's bullpen got more crowded when the team acquired Cole Sulser and Tanner Scott from the Orioles on Sunday. Pop had a respectable 4.12 ERA in 54.2 innings as a rookie last season but will have to wait to get his next chance in the majors.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Zach Pop: Returns from injured list
Pop (finger) was activated off the injured list Tuesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Pop will wind up missing just shy of three weeks with a sore middle finger. He's ready to go following a pair of rehab appearances and will be looking to continue the strong form he was showing prior to the injury, as he didn't allow a single earned run over his last nine relief appearances. He'll take the roster spot that had belonged to Paul Campbell, who hit the injured list for undisclosed reasons.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Zach Pop: Lands on IL
The Marlins placed Pop on the 10-day injured list Saturday with right middle finger soreness, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The righty last appeared in a game Tuesday, striking out a pair in two scoreless innings. It's unclear how long Pop will be sidelined with the sore finger, but it figures to be a fairly brief IL stint unless he's dealing with a more significant injury.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Zach Pop: Records first MLB win
Pop (1-0) picked up the win in Wednesday's 11-6 victory over the Phillies, giving up one hit over a scoreless fourth inning. He didn't walk or strike out a batter.
The Rule 5 pick did allow an inherited runner to score after entering the game with two on and nobody out, but Pop found himself in the right place at the right time for his first career win when the Marlins put together a six-run fifth inning. The 24-year-old has a 0.96 ERA and 0.96 WHIP over his last 9.1 innings while working low-leverage spots, but his 6:6 K:BB over that stretch indicates he's still a work in progress.... See More ...

Marlins' Zach Pop: Learning process continues
Pop gave up a hit and a walk over two scoreless innings Sunday without striking out a batter in a loss to Atlanta.
The right-hander had been having a rough June, getting tagged for nine runs (eight earned) in his first three appearances of the month, but Pop was able to find his footing Sunday. The Rule 5 pick is averaging 95.3 mph with his fastball this year and has a solid 24.5 percent strikeout rate and 7.1 percent walk rate through his first 21.2 big-league innings, but his 6.65 ERA reflects stretches when he's been very hittable, and the Marlins aren't likely to use him in high-leverage spots any time soon....

Marlins' Zach Pop: Still refining mechanics
Pop is still trying to become consistent with a new delivery after streamlining his mechanics during spring training, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. "I got rid of my high leg kick that I had in spring training, so I was trying to find a suitable delivery kind of being quicker to the plate," Pop said earlier this week. "I got some inconsistency problems early on, so we're just trying to fix that and trying to be more consistent moving forward with the delivery. Once that's the same, it'll be easier to make pitches and [have] less missed spots."
The Rule 5 pick has had a rough start to his big-league career, posting a 9.95 ERA through his first 6.1 innings thanks to two homers, but Pop may have turned a corner recently as he struck out five batters over three perfect innings in his last two appearances. It will take a longer stretch of success before Marlins manager Don Mattingly begins considering him for high-leverage work, however.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Zach Pop: Makes Opening Day roster
Pop has made the Marlins' Opening Day roster, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
As a Rule 5 draft pick, the Marlins have to keep Pop on the active roster all season or offer him back to the Orioles. That gave him a leg up in the battle for a roster spot, but he seems to have won one legitimately, as he didn't allow an earned run in five innings of work this spring, striking out four while walking two and allowing three hits....

Marlins' Zach Pop: Looking good for roster spot
Pop topped out at 97.9 mph with his fastball, averaging 96.2 mph with the pitch, during a scoreless Grapefruit League appearance Thursday against the Cardinals, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
The Rule 5 pick hasn't given up a run over three innings this spring with a 3:1 K:BB. The Marlins have a lot of options for their bullpen, but Pop has put himself firmly in the mix with his performance, and his fastball/slider combo could earn him a high-leverage role and potentially even ninth-inning work down the road given the team's unsettled closer situation. Expect the 24-year-old right-hander, who has yet to pitch above Double-A in his career, to be eased into high-pressure spots early in the season if he does make the big-league roster.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Zach Pop: Switching organizations
The Diamondbacks selected Pop with the sixth pick of the Rule 5 draft.
Pop was originally drafted by the Dodgers and was traded to Baltimore in the Manny Machado trade. He had Tommy John surgery in May of 2019 and could touch 100 mph with his fastball prior to the surgery. This past September, Pop was back to "full go," so he should head to spring training without restrictions. The Diamondbacks will likely ease him back in low-leverage situations out of the bullpen in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Zach Pop: Shipped to Miami
Pop was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Marlins on Thursday in exchange for a player to be named later.
Pop was selected by Arizona during Thursday's Rule 5 draft, but he'll be flipped to Miami several hours after his selection. The right-hander could reach 100 mph with his fastball earlier in his career, but it's unclear where his velocity is following Tommy John surgery in May of 2019. He should be fully healthy heading into spring training and will likely see work in lower-leverage situations as he works his way back into game action.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zach Pop: Arm feeling good
Pop said Thursday that he is back to "full-go" after having Tommy John surgery in May of 2019, Roch Kubatko of masnsports.com reports.
Pop resumed light throwing back in November and says he is now throwing 94 mph during his bullpen sessions. Pop did not get an invite to the Orioles' alternate training site, but continues to work out at his home in Canada. The right-hander reliever remains a somewhat intriguing prospect after posting a 0.84 ERA across 10.2 innings with Double-A Bowie in 2019.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zach Pop: Slated for Tommy John
Pop is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
This is a tough blow for Pop, who had a 0.84 ERA and 9.3 K/9 in 10.2 innings with Double-A Bowie prior to suffering the injury. He'll likely remain sidelined until summer of 2020 after undergoing the procedure.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Zach Pop: Starting season in Double-A
Pop is healthy and will start the season in Double-A Bowie, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Pop was traded to the Orioles as part of last season's Manny Machado trade. Across three levels in 2018, the reliever posted a 1.53 ERA over 64.2 innings. The 22-year-old will have to prove himself in Double-A before he can move up in the organization, but considering the low expectations for the club in 2019, his path to the majors could be expedited....

Orioles' Zach Pop: Set to resume throwing
Pop is scheduled to resume throwing in the coming days, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Pop was shut down from throwing over the weekend after displaying diminished velocity in his first spring outing, but he's ready to pick it back up after taking a few days off to rest and recover. He'll open the 2019 campaign back on Baltimore's farm after spending time across three levels last season, posting a combined 1.53 ERA and 64:19 K:BB across 64.2 innings of relief.... See More ...

Orioles' Zach Pop: Resting after concerning velocity
Pop will ease off throwing after his velocity was down in his first spring outing, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Despite the concerning velocity, Pop was able to get through a clean inning against the Twins on Saturday, striking out one and not allowing a baserunner. Velocity dips can sometimes portend serious injuries, but for now the team apparently thinks the problem can be solved by rest.... See More ... See Less
