Yankees' Dan Jennings: Lands minors deal from Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Monday.

The Yankees assigned Jennings to short-season Staten Island, but he'll presumably make a handful of appearances in the lower levels of the minors before moving up to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The 32-year-old lefty previously made eight appearances at the big-league level with the Nationals this season, giving up seven runs over 4.2 innings before being designated for assignment in May.

Dan Jennings: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings has elected free agency, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.

He was recently designated for assignment by the Nationals, which was not to his liking, so he will hope a better opportunity emerges on the open market. He had some success with the Brewers last season, but would be confined to a low-leverage role no matter where he latches on.

Nationals' Dan Jennings: Loses roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals designated Jennings for assignment Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Jennings will cede his 40-man roster spot to waiver pickup Javy Guerra and his spot on the active roster to Tony Sipp (oblique), who was activated from the 10-day injured list. Valued as a lefty specialist for much of his career, Jennings has allowed eight of the 18 left-handed hitters he has faced this season to reach base.

Nationals' Dan Jennings: Picks up first win as Nat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings (1-2) struck out two in a perfect fifth inning Thursday to record the win over the Mets.

Entering the game with the score knotted at 4-4, the veteran southpaw breezed through the top of the Mets' order before the Nats took the lead for good in the bottom half of the frame. Jennings has made seven appearances since joining the club and been scored upon in four of them, saddling him with an 11.25 ERA, and his low-leverage role leaves him with little fantasy ceiling even if he does turn things around.

Nationals' Dan Jennings: Contract selected by Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings' contract was purchased from Double-A Harrisburg on Tuesday.

Jennings linked up with the Nationals in mid-April after failing to break camp with the Angels. The veteran lefty posted a 3.22 ERA in 64.1 innings for the Brewers last season and has a 2.96 career ERA over his seven-year career. Austin Adams was designated for assignment to clear a space for Jennings on the 40-man roster.

Nationals' Dan Jennings: Links up with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Monday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Jennings has found a new home after being cut loose by the Angels prior to the start of the season. The veteran left-hander will head to extended spring training for the time being but is a candidate to join the Nationals' bullpen once he's deemed ready. Across 64.1 innings with the Brewers last year, Jennings notched a 3.22 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 45:23 K:BB.

Dan Jennings: Let go by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings was released by the Angels on Tuesday.

Jennings was in camp as a non-roster invitee and endured a tough spring as he allowed seven runs on 10 hits through 6.2 innings. The veteran left-hander had a 3.22 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 45:23 K:BB across 64.1 innings with Milwaukee last season.

Angels' Dan Jennings: Signs with Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings signed a minor-league deal with the Angels that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Jennings posted a 3.22 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over 72 appearances with the Brewers in 2018, but the team declined to tender him a contract and he subsequently hit free agency. The 31-year-old is likely to serve as a left-handed specialist as he allowed a .320/.399/.528 slash line to right-handed hitters in 2018, though his career splits aren't quite so extreme.

December 1, 2018 03:40 PM
Dan Jennings: Set for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings will not be tendered a contract for the 2019 season from Milwaukee, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

The Brewers have decided to move on from Jennings after just one season, during which he recorded a 3.22 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with a 6.3 K/9 across 72 appearances. The left-hander was somewhat of a forgotten man in the team's bullpen, as manager Craig Counsell only utilized him for a total of 17 innings after the All-Star break due to the success of his other relievers. Jennings will likely be able to find a new home and serve as a quality option against left-handed hitting in 2019.

Brewers' Dan Jennings: Gets job done
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings started Monday's victory over the Cardinals and retired the first batter of the game before being removed from the contest.

Manager Craig Counsell chose to start Jennings in an attempt to neutralize the lefty-swinging Matt Carpenter in his first at-bat, and Jennings was able to get the job done. With a string of right-handed hitters following Carpenter, Jennings was then removed after that in favor of righty Freddy Peralta. Given the plan worked there's a chance Jennings could be used similarly before the regular season comes to a close, but otherwise expect him to continue working in middle relief.

September 24, 2018 12:00 PM
Brewers' Dan Jennings: Set to start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings will get the start in Monday's game against the Cardinals.

The Brewers announced Sunday that they intended to get through Monday's game without a traditional starting pitcher, and it's now clear they will now do just that, as Jennings will start for the first time in his career. While Jennings will be on the mound the first time the Cardinals bat Monday night, he figures to work no more than an inning or two, and could realistically be pulled from the game at any point based on the lineup St. Louis chooses to employ.

Brewers' Dan Jennings: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings (ankle) allowed a go-ahead hit to the only batter he faced in Saturday's loss to the Nationals.

Jennings was brought in to face the Nationals' Juan Soto with a one-run lead, but he was not able to retire him and was removed before facing another batter. Jennings has taken the mound twice since injuring his ankle Thursday, so he appears to have put the setback behind him.

Brewers' Dan Jennings: Exits with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings exited Thursday's game against the Reds with an apparent leg injury, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Jennings appeared to injure himself after getting Billy Hamilton caught in a rundown. He immediately pulled up and went to the ground before being helped off the field by a pair of trainers. Specifics regarding the injury aren't known at the moment. Jordan Lyles replaced him on the mound.

Brewers' Dan Jennings: Tosses 1.2 innings in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings allowed one earned run over 1.2 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

Although he gave up a run Tuesday, Jennings has been effective since the All-Star break, posting a 2.70 ERA in 13.1 innings over 17 appearances out of the Brewers' bullpen. He continues to work in middle relief, and situationally when needed.

Brewers' Dan Jennings: Notches fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings picked up his fourth win of the season in Tuesday's victory over the Nationals.

Jennings was only needed for one out Tuesday, but it was the final one the Brewers recorded before walking off the Nationals in the bottom of the 10th inning. Jennings has turned things around after posting a 6.23 ERA in June, putting up a tidy 1.74 ERA and .171 BAA in 10.1 innings over 11 appearances.

Brewers' Dan Jennings: Earns first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings pitched two perfect innings in Thursday's 7-2 win over Atlanta, striking out two and picking up a save.

It was the only save opportunity Jennings has seen in 2018 and he likely won't see them very often. Corey Knebel had pitched the last three days so he was likely unavailable in this contest. Jennings owns a 3.38 ERA in 42.2 innings on the year.

July 3, 2018 12:48 PM
Brewers' Dan Jennings: Throws two innings Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings tossed two innings of scoreless relief in Monday's victory over the Twins.

Jennings seemed happy to put June in the past after allowing nine earned runs over 13 innings (6.23 ERA) out of Milwaukee's bullpen. He still owns a respectable 3.54 ERA on the season, and is working mainly in middle relief like he has all year.

June 11, 2018 06:04 PM
Brewers' Dan Jennings: Takes loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings allowed three runs, one earned, over two innings and took the loss Sunday as the Brewers fell to the Phillies.

Jennings has ran into a bit of trouble of late, giving up at least one earned run in five of his last seven outings. His ERA on the season still sits at a respectable 3.38, but he is probably going to have to bring down his 1.41 WHIP in order for the ERA to stay in that range.

Brewers' Dan Jennings: Back from calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings (calf) returned to action Tuesday, getting two outs without allowing a baserunner against the Indians en route to his sixth hold of the year.

He missed almost a week after being hit in the calf by a comebacker May 2. The 31-year-old southpaw serves as the Brewers' No. 2 left-handed reliever (after Josh Hader). He has been excellent in real life (1.84 ERA), but won't log enough innings or miss enough bats (16.4 percent strikeout rate) to be useful in leagues that don't reward holds.

May 3, 2018 01:44 PM
Brewers' Dan Jennings: Hit with comebacker in calf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings is dealing with a calf injury after getting hit by a comebacker during Wednesday's game against the Reds, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Jennings was able to stay in the game and finish off the seventh inning after getting hit by the comebacker, notching his fifth hold of the season with a scoreless inning of work. Manager Craig Counsell said he wasn't concerned about the injury after the game, so consider the reliever day-to-day for now.
