Drew Storen: Let go by Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen was released by the Royals on Wednesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Storen signed with the Royals in February and made his way to Double-A Northwest Arkansas in late May, but he struggled with a 7.84 ERA and 1.98 WHIP over 10.1 innings. The 31-year-old missed the entirety of 2018 after undergoing Tommy John surgery and will likely have to prove himself in the minors if he manages to latch on elsewhere.

Royals' Drew Storen: Assigned to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen (elbow) was assigned to Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

He was singed to a minor-league deal in the offseason and will be given a friendly assignment to Double-A in an attempt to get him into a groove before bumping him up to Triple-A Omaha. Storen will serve as organizational bullpen depth going forward.

Royals' Drew Storen: Stuck at extended spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen (elbow) remains at extended spring training as he attempts to build up arm strength before reporting to one of the Royals' minor-league affiliates, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

After undergoing Tommy John surgery in September 2017, Storen missed the entire 2018 campaign but reported to spring training with no specified limitations. Though he was expected to contend for a bullpen gig with the big club this spring, Storen's diminished velocity and poor command torpedoed those hopes. The Royals remain optimistic Storen will be able to contribute in relief at some point in 2019, but a promotion to the big leagues shouldn't be considered imminent until he reports to the minors and turns in quality results.

Royals' Drew Storen: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday.

Storen is attempting to come back after missing all of 2018 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. His four earned runs and seven walks in 2.1 spring innings didn't help his case to break camp with the big-league squad.

Royals' Drew Storen: Declared healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen (elbow) passed his physical and is ready to compete for a spot on the major-league roster during spring training, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Storen agreed to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training Friday, and the deal was made official after he passed his physical. After undergoing Tommy John surgery in December of 2017, the Royals are pleased to announce that he's received full clearance and won't face any throwing restrictions, per Flanagan.

Royals' Drew Storen: Agrees to deal with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen (elbow) agreed to a minor-league contract with the Royals on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

The deal is pending a physical, a process which can't be taken for granted given that Storen sat out the entirety of 2018 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. The 31-year-old owns a career 3.45 ERA, though he hasn't posted an ERA below 4.45 since 2015. If healthy and effective, he could be an important member of a potentially shaky bullpen.

Drew Storen: Ready to throw for teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen (elbow) has resumed throwing off a mound and will pitch in front of major-league clubs in the near future, Jon Heyman of Fancred reports.

Storen was forced to sit out the entire 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in September of 2017. The 31-year-old appears to be throwing all of his pitches without any limitations, so he should be fully operational at the start of spring training. During the 2017 campaign with Cincinnati, he logged a 4.45 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with 48 strikeouts in 54.2 innings of relief.

Reds' Drew Storen: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen (elbow) underwent successful surgery Tuesday.

Storen will likely miss the entire 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm. The right-hander posted a 4.45 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with a 48:23 K:BB over 54.2 innings out of the bullpen this year.

Reds' Drew Storen: Shifted to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Sunday.

Storen will be out indefinitely as he will soon undergo Tommy John surgery, so his placement on the 60-day DL will simply open up a spot for the recently claimed D.J. Peterson to join the Reds' 40-man roster.

Reds' Drew Storen: To undergo Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery on his injured right elbow, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Storen has been sidelined since Sept. 1 with a right elbow strain and will now miss the remainder of the season (and likely all of next season) as he undergoes Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm in the coming days. He'll finish the 2017 campaign with a pedestrian 4.45 ERA over 54.2 innings of relief with the Reds.

September 14, 2017 12:48 AM
Reds' Drew Storen: Lands on disabled list Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen was placed on the 10-day DL due to a right elbow sprain, retroactive to Sept. 10.

There hasn't been any word on the severity of Storen's injury or a timetable for the future, but he will be eligible to return to the mound Sept. 20 when the club hosts St. Louis. Storen's last appearance came against the Pirates on Sept. 1, which signals that there's been an issue for quite some time. Over the course of the 2017 season, he's accumulated a 4.45 ERA and 1.46 WHIP over 54.2 innings of relief.

Reds' Drew Storen: Pitching well in middle relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen has a 2.80 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 28 strikeouts across 35.1 innings this season.

The 29-year-old has been pretty consistent all season and has yet to see his ERA go higher than 3.00. Storen will occasionally see high-leverage situations for the Reds, but he has only one save and five holds to show for it. The right-hander only has a 7.1 K/9, but has been steady enough to warrant some fantasy consideration.

Reds' Drew Storen: Picks up loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen (1-2) picked up the loss Saturday night against the Dodgers, allowing two hits while striking out one.

In a sign of how the Reds' bullpen management has changed, Reds manager Bryan Price was questioned why Storen was brought in to pitch the ninth with the game tied, rather than closer Raisel Iglesias, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Price was holding Iglesias for a potential save situation and simply trusted Storen, who now has a 2.39 ERA following this outing.

Reds' Drew Storen: Rough May after good start to season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen has given up six runs (five earned) across nine innings during May.

The veteran righty's season ERA still sits at a solid 2.57, but five walks and only four strikeouts in the month of May tell a different story. Storen worked through April with a stellar 0.75 ERA and 1.00 WHIP, but he's been unable to find much traction since. If he is able to find that form again, though, he could reinsert himself into setup duty.

Reds' Drew Storen: Blows save Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen allowed a solo home run in the eighth inning and was credited with a blown save during Monday's win over Pittsburgh.

The Reds ended up winning the game in extra innings, and the homer only increased Storen's ERA to 1.38. However, the Reds are using multiple relievers to close out games, and Storen has now blown two of his three save opportunities. His 1.38 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 10.4 K/9 are all serviceable ratios, but his struggles finishing off games early this year is a concern.

Reds' Drew Storen: Picks up hold Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen retired four batters Saturday to pick up his first hold of the season, striking out two while walking one. He also picked up his first at-bat since 2010, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Storen hasn't yet had to pitch on back-to-back days, but with the bullpen having to pick up eight innings Saturday, Storen could still be back out there Sunday in a pinch. All four of the Reds' top four relievers (Raisel Iglesias, Michael Lorenzen, Tony Cingrani and Storen) worked Saturday.

Reds' Drew Storen: Earns save Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen picked up his first save of the season with a scoreless inning against the Phillies on Thursday. He gave up one hit and struck out two batters.

After Michael Lorenzen and Raisel Iglesias were used to close out a victory Wednesday night (in that order), manager Bryan Price turned to Storen to nail down the win Thursday afternoon. Storen's velocity was said to be down some this spring, but he made quick work of the bottom of the Phillies' lineup in his second appearance with the Reds, retiring the side on 14 pitches (12 strikes). It appears Storen is very much a part of the closer committee in Cincinnati.

Reds' Drew Storen: Velocity down this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen's velocity has been down to 88-90 mph this spring from the 91.8 mph he averaged on fastballs last season, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. He's given up nine runs and eight hits in 4.2 innings this spring.

Storen is set to begin the season as a top setup man and could get a chance to save games if Raisel Iglesias' elbow and hip injuries keep him out for the start of the regular season. However, Storen's poor spring and drop in velocity are cause for concern.

Reds' Drew Storen: Four-man closer rotation?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds would like to be able to employ a four-man rotation at closer this season, rather than use a traditional bullpen construction. Storen would be part of that mix.

The Reds have the opportunity to experiment with their bullpen roles, in part because they are rebuilding, and because they don't have an established full-time closer. Storen has closing experience, but is coming off his worst season in the majors. In particular his home run rate spiked, and if that continues it'll be hard to earn the trust of Bryan Price in the ninth inning.

Reds' Drew Storen: Signs one-year deal with Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Storen signed a one-year contract with the Reds on Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of reports.

The numbers for Storen between Toronto and Seattle last season leave much to be desired, but he was able to land a major league deal from the pitching-needy Reds on the strength of his larger body of work. Storen has posted a 3.31 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 98 saves in parts of seven major league seasons. He saved 29 games for the Nationals in 2015 and figures to enter the back-end mix with Cincinnati, perhaps working as part of a closer committee alongside Raisel Iglesias and Tony Cingrani.
