  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Returns to big leagues

    Mears was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

    Mears has yielded two runs over seven innings at the major-league level this season and had been pitching well of late with Albuquerque. He's taking Tommy Doyle's spot on the roster.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Activated and optioned

    Colorado activated Mears (oblique) from the 15-day injured list Tuesday and optioned him to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Mears is recovered from the left oblique strain that sent him to the IL in late June, but the Rockies will keep him on the farm for the time being. He carries a rough 7.16 ERA in 16.1 innings of work this season at the Triple-A level.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Starting rehab assignment

    Mears (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with the Rockies' Arizona Complex League affiliate Friday.

    Mears has been on the shelf since late June with a left oblique strain but is finally ready for games. He would figure to require a lengthy rehab stint and isn't necessarily a lock to rejoin the Rockies' bullpen this season.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Not yet ready for mound work

    Mears (oblique) has been playing catch since late July but hasn't yet been cleared to throw off a mound, MLB.com reports.

    Mears has been slow to bounce back from a left oblique strain, which forced him to the 15-day injured list June 28. Since he'll need to throw multiple bullpen sessions, face hitters in live batting practice and complete a rehab assignment prior to being activated, Mears doesn't look as though he'll be ready to rejoin the Rockies' bullpen until late August at the soonest.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Exits with oblique injury

    Mears left Tuesday's appearance against the Dodgers with a strained left oblique, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    The right-hander threw a scoreless inning before being replaced by Matt Koch. For now, Mears should be considered day-to-day, but the Rockies will likely have him undergo further testing to see if a trip to the injured list is required.

    Mears was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Recalled from Albuquerque

    Colorado recalled Mears from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday.

    Mears will take the place of Noah Davis on the 26-man roster after Davis was placed on the injured list with elbow inflammation. The right-hander will likely work in a low-leverage capacity out of the Colorado bullpen.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Optioned to Triple-A

    Mears was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque by the Rockies on Tuesday.

    Mears was claimed off waivers by the Rockies from the Rangers in January. The right-hander turned in a 1.27 ERA in seven innings during Cactus League play with 11 strikeouts, but he also walked six while allowing four hits in those contests. Mears will likely be an up-and-down option for the Colorado bullpen through the 2023 season.

  • Rockies' Nick Mears: Claimed by Rockies

    The Rockies claimed Mears off waivers from Texas on Friday.

    After spending just four days with the Rangers organization, Mears is on the move for the second time this offseason. The 26-year-old reliever recorded a 4.80 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in the minors last season, though he was able to throw two scoreless frames in the majors at the very end of the year. The Rockies are starving for depth in their bullpen, so it's very possible Mears begins the 2023 season in the majors.

  • Rangers' Nick Mears: DFA'd by Texas

    Mears was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Tuesday.

    Mears was claimed off waivers by the Rangers last week, but he was only briefly on the team's 40-man roster. The 26-year-old made only two big-league appearances last season and had a 4.74 ERA over 24.2 innings at Triple-A.

  • Rangers' Nick Mears: Claimed by Texas

    Mears was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Friday.

    The 26-year-old was designated for assignment by the Pirates last weekend and will now join the Rangers. Mears missed the first four months of 2022 while recovered from elbow surgery, and he had a 4.74 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 27:17 K:BB in 24.2 innings at the Triple-A level.

  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Designated for assignment

    Mears was designated for assignment Sunday.

    The Pirates acquired Connor Joe in a trade with Colorado and needed to clear a 40-man roster spot. A 26-year-old righty, Mears has a 97-mph fastball, but he also has a poor 14.9 percent walk rate in 30.1 MLB innings. He could get another shot in the majors if he can improve his control.

  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Joins big-league bullpen

    The Pirates recalled Mears from Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Starting pitcher Luis Ortiz was optioned to Triple-A to open up a spot on the 28-man active roster for Mears, who will be available out of the bullpen over the Bucs' final three games of the season. Mears has missed most of the season while recovering from arthroscopic elbow surgery, but he's been healthy since late July and was pitching regularly out of the Triple-A bullpen prior to his promotion. Over his final nine outings at Triple-A, Mears allowed three runs (two earned) and struck out nine over 12.1 innings.

  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Activated and optioned

    Mears (elbow) was activated off the 60-day injured list Saturday and optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    Mears has been out all year after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow in early February. He's been pitching in the minors on a rehab assignment since late May, with a month-long disruption in the middle due to forearm tightness, and he'll remain in the minors for now.

  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Launching rehab assignment

    Mears (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Bradenton on Tuesday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    Mears has been out since the beginning of the season while recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow, but he appears to be on the cusp of a return in the coming weeks. The 25-year-old produced a 5.01 ERA and 1.63 WHIP with 23 strikeouts over 23.1 innings in 30 appearances with Pittsburgh last season.

  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Close to playing catch

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that the team envisions Mears (elbow) playing catch in the coming days, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

    Mears has been shut down for two weeks after he experienced right forearm tightness following a rehab start at Triple-A Indianapolis in June. However, the right-hander had his rehab transferred to the Pirates' alternate spring training facility in Florida and is close to resuming a throwing program. Once he's ultimately cleared to resume throwing, Mears will presumably need to build his workload back up following his shutdown.

  • Pirates' Nick Mears: Not yet throwing

    Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that Mears (elbow) hasn't yet resumed throwing, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.

    Mears experienced right forearm tightness following a rehab start at Triple-A Indianapolis last Wednesday, and he's been shut down for a week. However, Tomczyk hopes that the right-hander will resume throwing off flat ground in the coming days. A better idea of Mears' return timetable is unlikely to be revealed until he resumes mound work.
