Yankees' Fernando Abad: Signs with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad signed with the Yankees on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The terms of the deal have yet to be released, but it's likely to be a minor-league deal as Abad has thrown just 13 big-league innings over the last two seasons. He'd signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals back in December but was let go by the team last Friday.

Fernando Abad: Let go by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad was released by the Nationals on Friday, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

The veteran southpaw was included in the team's initial 60-player pool in late June, but he was never officially cleared to participate at camp. Abad tested positive for COVID-19 and has now completed his quarantine, but the team opted to move on. He posted a 4.15 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB across 13 innings with the Giants last year.

Nationals' Fernando Abad: Part of 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad has been named to the Nationals' 60-man player pool, Jessica Camerato of reports.

The veteran left-hander had been in camp with the Nats back in the spring as an NRI, striking out two batters in 2.1 scoreless Grapefruit League innings before play was suspended. Abad still isn't on the 40-man roster, but he could see big-league action at some point this season if the club needs bullpen reinforcements.

Nationals' Fernando Abad: Signs with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Abad's option was declined by the Giants in early November, but he will work in the Nationals' organization in 2020. Given the southpaw's past major-league experience, the deal presumably includes an invitation to spring training. The 34-year-old recorded a 4.15 ERA with a 0.92 WHIP over 13 innings in 2019.

Fernando Abad: Option declined by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants declined Abad's club option for 2020 on Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

Abad joined the Giants on a minor-league deal in February and didn't make his way to the majors until mid-August. The veteran southpaw had a 4.15 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB over 13 innings as he now returns to free agency.

Giants' Fernando Abad: Nabs third hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad retired both of the batters he faced while striking out one in a 5-4 win over the Dodgers on Friday.

The veteran southpaw teamed up with Jandel Gustave to hold the line in the eighth inning and bridge the gap to closer Will Smith. With Tony Watson (wrist) getting a couple days off, Abad has been filling in as the Giants' left-handed setup man. Watson's wrist injury isn't considered serious, so expect Abad to get bumped back down a peg on the bullpen pecking order soon.

Giants' Fernando Abad: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad had his contract selected from Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

Abad will join the big-league bullpen for the first time all season after posting a combined 2.70 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 55:5 K:BB in 50 innings with Sacramento and Double-A Richmond. The lefty hasn't pitched in the majors since 2017, though he owns a serviceable 3.65 ERA across parts of eight seasons (317.2 innings). To clear room on the roster for Abad, Aramis Garcia was sent to the minors while Kyle Barraclough was designated for assignment.

Giants' Fernando Abad: Lands with Giants on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad (suspension) signed a minor-league deal with the Giants on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of reports.

The veteran lefty didn't pitch in the big leagues last season but owns a 3.65 ERA across eight major-league seasons. He'll be ineligible to pitch until midseason while serving an 80-game suspension after testing positive for Stanozolol.

Fernando Abad: Receives 80-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad was handed an 80-game suspension due to the use of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Since Abad is currently a free agent, this ban won't kick in until he signs with an organization, which is unlikely to occur after this announcement. The 32-year-old appeared in 48 games for the Red Sox in 2017, but failed to latch on with the Phillies after spending a majority of spring training with the club earlier this year.

Fernando Abad: Remains free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad never actually came to terms with the Mets on a minor-league contract, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

A press release stated that Abad came to terms with New York at the end of March, but that deal apparently never came to fruition. It's unclear whether he's still close to a deal with the team or not, but for now, he'll remain a free agent. Abad produced a 3.30 ERA in 48 appearances with the Red Sox last season.

Mets' Fernando Abad: Inks minor-league deal with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad agreed to a minor-league deal with the Mets on Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Abad will link up with the Mets just days after being released by the Phillies. The veteran reliever spent his 2017 season with the Red Sox, compiling a 3.30 ERA and 37:14 K:BB over 43.2 innings. He'll report to Mets minor-league camp and will likely kick off the season with Triple-A Las Vegas. He's a candidate to be promoted for bullpen reinforcement during the regular season.

Fernando Abad: Released by Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad was released by the Phillies on Wednesday.

Abad joined the organization just over a month ago on a minor-league pact that included an invitation to spring training. He will now look to latch on with a new club after a solid campaign with Boston in 2017 (3.30 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over 43.2 innings of relief).

Phillies' Fernando Abad: Minors pact with Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad signed a minor-league deal with the Phillies on Saturday that includes an invite to spring training, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The 32-year-old southpaw logged a 3.30 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 43.2 innings last season with the Red Sox, so it's a little surprising he had to settle for a minor-league deal, although there may be incentives if he makes the roster out of camp. The only lefty on the roster currently projected to make the big-league bullpen is Adam Morgan, so Abad has a legitimate chance to break camp with the Phillies and pitch in mid-to-low-leverage situations this season.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Records two outs in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad pitched two-thirds of an inning and walked a batter in Sunday's matchup with the Reds.

The 31-year-old left-hander has accrued a 2.93 ERA across 43 innings this season with the Red Sox, improving from a 3.66 ERA in 2016. Despite these solid numbers, Abad is near the back of the bullpen and has pitched mainly in low-leverage situations (33.2 of his 43 innings). He will see very few opportunities as the season ends and the Red Sox make their playoff run.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Seeing slight decrease in strikeouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad is holding hitters to a .219 average and has 23 strikeouts in 31 innings this season.

The southpaw has pitched well for the Red Sox this season, but he has seen his strikeout percentage drop to 18.6 percent after seeing it hover in the low twenties each of the last three seasons. Despite the success, the pecking order in Boston's bullpen is pretty solidified at this point, and that limits the potential for Abad to move into more high-leverage situations.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Lights out since start of May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad has a 1.72 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 15.2 innings since the start of May.

The veteran left-hander has yet to record a hold this season, but is pitching well in low-leverage situations for the Red Sox. Abad has recorded only 13 strikeouts across 21 innings, but he's pitched well against lefties, as they hold a .214/.258/.357 slash line against him.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Not receiving meaningful chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad has struck out six and walked two in 8.1 innings during May.

Abad is posting a WHIP of 1.00 in 13.2 innings, third among Red Sox relievers, trailing only fellow lefty Robby Scott and closer Craig Kimbrel. Despite that, he hasn't received much trust from manager John Farrell. Seven of his last eight appearances have come in games that were decided by three runs or more, including his recent poor showing Wednesday against Seattle when he gave up two runs in a third of an inning with his team already trailing 3-0. The biggest hurdle between Abad and more meaningful playing time is Scott, as Scott has been the preferred southpaw in the bullpen so far this year.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Makes first high-leverage appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad entered Friday's game with one out and two men on in the eighth inning and struck out two in Boston's 5-4 win over the Cubs.

The appearance was Abad's sixth of the season, the fewest among the relievers who have been on Boston's roster all season, and the first in a high-leverage spot. Manager John Farrell has preferred Robby Scott in such situations, but he was burned earlier in the game. Abad was clearly pumped after striking out pinch hitter Matt Szczur and then Kyle Schwarber, holding the lead for closer Craig Kimbrel. This one moment was the brightest highlight of his Red Sox career to date.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Throws scoreless inning Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad worked around a hit and a walk in a scoreless inning Friday night in Boston's 10-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

Abad was the final reliever to exit Boston's bullpen this season. He debuted Wednesday in a blowout loss and made his second appearance in Friday's blowout loss. That suggests he doesn't have the confidence of manager John Farrell, who seemingly prefers Robby Scott when there's a need to get a left-handed batter out despite Abad's effectiveness against hitters of the same side. Also a contributing factor to his low usage is the makeup of the bullpen -- Abad is one of three left-handed relievers for a team that's stacked with left-handed starters.

Red Sox's Fernando Abad: Back with Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Abad has rejoined the Red Sox spring training and is scheduled to throw two innings Tuesday, Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Abad fared well for Team Domincan Republic, pitching 2.1 scoreless innings. The left-hander returns to the Red Sox knowing a roster spot isn't yet secured. Fellow lefties Robby Scott and Edgar Olmos have pitched well during the spring, but Abad's contract will play a role in the decision of which player opens the season on the major league roster. Abad would need to clear waivers if the Red Sox want him in the minors. Scott is on the 40-man roster already while the non-rostered Olmos would need to be added to the 40-man. Boston can preserve as much organizational depth as possible by keeping Abad and stashing the others at Triple-A Pawtucket.
