McGuire signed a contract with the Samsung Lions of the KBO on Wednesday, Dan Kurtz of MyKBO.net reports.
McGuire spent time with three organizations in 2018, though he only appeared in the majors for the Blue Jays and Angels. Across 38 big-league innings, the 29-year-old right-hander struggled to a 6.16 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 33:26 K:BB.
McGuire was outrighted from the Angels' 40-man roster Friday.
McGuire was dealt to the Angels from Texas in mid-June and went on to make 17 appearances with Los Angeles in 2018, posting a disastrous 6.07 ERA and 1.69 WHIP with a 26:21 K:BB in 29.2 innings. This move will allow the team to free up another spot on the 40-man roster in order to protect a younger prospect from the Rule 5 draft.
McGuire was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
McGuire will rejoin the big-league team after shuttling back and forth between Los Angeles and the minors throughout the past month. Across 16 appearances in the majors this year, he's logged a rough 6.47 ERA and 1.62 WHIP with a 27:20 K:BB in 32 innings. He will likely be deployed in low-leverage spots.
McGuire was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.
McGuire was recalled 10 days ago to replace Hansel Robles on the active roster, but with Robles returning, McGuire was no longer needed in the big leagues. He'll head back to the minors for a brief amount of time before likely returning when rosters expand in September.
McGuire was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
McGuire will rejoin the major-league bullpen after being optioned following a disastrous spot start against the Indians on Aug. 5. Look for him to be utilized in low-leverage spots during his time with the club.
McGuire was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.
McGuire will head back to the minors after allowing three runs while recording just one out during his start against the Indians on Sunday. The 29-year-old now owns a brutal 7.41 ERA across 17 innings with the Angels this season. Jose Miguel Fernandez will take his place on the active roster as the Angels look to add an additional bench bat with Mike Trout still nursing a wrist contusion.
McGuire (0-2) allowed three runs on three hits and one walk while striking out one as he recorded one out and picked up the loss Sunday against Cleveland.
McGuire was removed from the game after retiring just one batter on 25 pitches. He surrendered a three-run homer to Jose Ramirez prior to exiting his outing. McGuire's spot start certainly didn't go as planned, as the Angels were hopeful he'd eat up innings with Tyler Skaggs (hip) on the shelf. Following McGuire's brief start, he figures to head to the bullpen or the minor leagues with Skaggs expected to return next time through the rotation.
The Angels recalled McGuire from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Indians, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
McGuire will pick up his fourth start of the season in the majors after the Angels required a replacement in the rotation for the injured Tyler Skaggs (hip). Skaggs, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday, said he only expects to miss one start due to the left adductor strain, so McGuire could transition to a bullpen role or head back to the minors after taking the hill Sunday. Over his 25 innings in the big leagues in 2018, McGuire has surrendered 17 earned runs on 25 hits -- including eight home runs -- and 15 walks.
McGuire is likely to be called up Sunday to make a spot start in Cleveland in place of Tyler Skaggs (adductor), Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Skaggs is only expected to miss one start, so McGuire will likely not be up long. The 29-year-old has a 6.12 ERA in 25 major-league innings this season, leaving little reason to believe he'll be a capable fantasy fill-in.
McGuire was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.
McGuire and Oliver Drake were cast off the active roster in order to make room for Albert Pujols (knee) and Jaime Barria. Across seven appearances with the Angels this year, McGuire has logged a 5.94 ERA and 1.56 WHIP over 16.2 innings. He will likely return to the rotation at the Triple-A level in order to keep him available as an option if Los Angeles requires a spot starter in the future.
McGuire covered 1.1 scoreless innings in relief Sunday in the Angels' 14-5 win over the Astros. He gave up one hit and two walks in the 35-pitch appearance.
McGuire's previous appearance came July 15 against the Dodgers, when he started a bullpen game for the Angels in the two sides' final game before the All-Star break. With the Angels welcoming back Nick Tropeano (shoulder) from the 10-day disabled list Saturday, McGuire was bumped from the rotation and looks set to stick around in a long-relief role with the big club for the time being.
McGuire allowed three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two across three innings Sunday against the Dodgers. He did not factor into the decision.
The Dodgers did their damage against McGuire in the second inning, led by a solo home run by Yasmani Grandal. McGuire has struggled mightily in three starts this season, allowing 11 earned runs across 10.1 innings, and he now has a 6.46 ERA and 1.56 WHIP through 23.2 innings.
McGuire will start the Angels' game Sunday against the Dodgers, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.
McGuire returned to the big-league roster Wednesday and made a one-inning relief appearance the same day. Though he'll technically pitch on only three days' rest, McGuire shouldn't face any strict limitations after having previously made 10 starts between the majors and minors this season. He'll assume the rotation spot of Garrett Richards (elbow), who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday and will soon be slated for season-ending Tommy John surgery.
McGuire will be promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake to the big leagues Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
McGuire was optioned to the minors Tuesday, but he's set to return to Los Angeles nearly 24 hours later. He's made eight appearances (two starts) in the big leagues this season, accruing a 6.41 ERA and 1.47 WHIP with an 18:10 K:BB over 19.2 innings.
McGuire was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.
He fanned six in three innings in his start against the Dodgers over the weekend, but the Angels don't need him in the rotation before the All-Star break, so he was sent down. Michael Hermosillo was recalled in a corresponding move.
McGuire allowed one hit and two walks while striking out six over three scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Saturday.
The 29-year-old induced 10 swinging strikes on 61 pitches. He had given up eight runs over 8.1 innings in his first three appearances with the Angels, and he also struggled with Toronto to begin the year. This was a step in the right direction and may afford McGuire some more spot starts down the road, but it looks like he will be headed to the bullpen or Triple-A Salt Lake for the time being with Tyler Skaggs (groin) set to return next week.
McGuire was called back up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Jeff Fletcher of the Southern California News Group reported that the Angels' starter for Thursday's game is now TBA, which could imply that Tyler Skaggs -- who was scheduled to take the mound -- will no longer be able to pitch. If that's the case, McGuire will likely rejoin the rotation after making a spot start against the Orioles on Sunday.
McGuire was sent down to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of the Southern California News Group reports.
McGuire was roughed up during his first big-league start of the season against Baltimore on Sunday, allowing five earned runs in just 3.1 innings of work. With the Angels' staff wearing thin due to injuries, there was a chance for McGuire to remain in the rotation for more than one turn, but manager Mike Scioscia decided to go a different route. Look for him to continue getting regular starts at the Triple-A level as he remains a candidate for spot starts moving forward.
McGuire (0-1) took the loss Sunday against the Orioles, as he surrendered five runs on five hits and two walks while fanning four across 3.1 innings.
McGuire's first start of the season didn't last long, as he was lifted in the fourth inning following solo home runs by Manny Machado and Mark Trumbo. After a shaky outing, it's unclear if he'll get another opportunity to start next time through the rotation. McGuire has accrued an ugly 7.56 ERA and 1.56 WHIP with 12 strikeouts through 16.2 innings this season.
McGuire will start Sunday's game in Baltimore, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
John Lamb was placed on the disabled list with shoulder and elbow inflammation, so McGuire, who was recalled from Triple-A last week, will get the spot start. He logged four innings, giving up three earned runs and striking out one, in his last appearance on Tuesday after Lamb left with the injury. McGuire only threw 55 pitches in that appearance, but he was up to 92 pitches in a Triple-A start June 7, so it's possible he goes deep enough to qualify for the win. The 29-year-old journeyman has a 4.33 ERA and 5.58 xFIP in 27 MLB innings, so expectations should be tempered. The Angels currently have seven MLB starting pitchers on the disabled list, so it's possible McGuire can stick in the rotation if he turns in even a middling performance.
