Blue Jays' Wilmer Font: Traded to Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font was traded from the Mets to the Blue Jays in exchange for cash considerations Wednesday.

Font will join his third team of the season and his fifth of the last two years. With a 5.56 ERA since the start of 2018, it's no surprise that four teams have given up on him so far. His 32.1 percent strikeout rate and 6.3 percent walk rate at Triple-A Oklahoma City in the Dodgers' organization back in 2017 hinted at some promise, but he hasn't come close to replicating those numbers in the big leagues, striking out 19.3 percent of opposing batters while walking 10.4 percent. Font will join the Blue Jays' major-league roster, and the plan is to use him as an opener once he's active, per Ben Nicholson-Smith of

Mets' Wilmer Font: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font was designated for assignment by the Mets on Friday.

Font wasn't particularly effective during his time with the Mets, posting a 4.94 ERA in 31.0 innings of work while striking out just 17.9 percent of opposing batters. Chris Mazza was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Nabs second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font (2-2) picked up the win Sunday against Atlanta, tossing two perfect innings of relief and striking out three.

The right-hander wrapped up a strong June, posting a 2.77 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 13:5 K:BB through 13 innings over eight appearances on the month. Font's long-relief role limits his fantasy value, but he has enough strikeout upside to have some utility in deep NL-only formats.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Sticking in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets don't have any plans to bring Font into the rotation and instead prefer to keep him on hand in a relief role, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

New York has an opening in the rotation while Noah Syndergaard (hamstring) is on the injured list, but the team isn't viewing Font as an option when a fifth starter is required Tuesday in Philadelphia. Instead, Walker Lockett will draw a second straight start despite poor results in his first turn Thursday against the Cubs. Lockett lasted just 2.1 innings before Font came on and shined in long relief, striking out five over three shutout innings. If Lockett fails to find much early success Tuesday, Font could again be in line to fill a piggyback role out of the bullpen.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font will not start Thursday against the Cubs, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

Font was a candidate to fill in for the injured Noah Syndergaard (hamstring), but the Mets will instead give Walker Lockett the ball for Thursday's series opener. The right-handed Font will work as a long reliever for now; however, there's a chance Font could be considered for a spot start early next week if Lockett struggles, as the Mets will need another fill-in before Syndergaard is eligible to return.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Candidate for spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font is likely to make a spot start Thursday against the Cubs with Noah Syndergaard out with a hamstring strain, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Font's 4.98 ERA in 34.1 innings on the season has been enough to keep him on the roster but isn't nearly good enough to get fantasy owners excited about a spot start, especially against a tough lineup. Syndergaard's absence isn't expected to be a lengthy one, so Font doesn't appear likely to make more than one turn in the rotation.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Headed to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font is expected to transition to a relief role after the Mets announced that Jason Vargas (hamstring) would return from the 10-day injured list to start Saturday against the Tigers, Anthony DiComo of reports.

After beginning the season as a full-time reliever for Tampa Bay, Font immediately entered a banged-up Mets rotation when he was acquired May 6. The right-hander found minimal success in his three starts, giving up nine runs on 12 hits and six walks over 10.1 innings. With Vargas' impending return putting the New York rotation back at full strength, Font will presumably work as a mop-up man out of the bullpen rather than handling any meaningful setup work in front of closer Edwin Diaz.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Struggles with control against Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 5-3 win over the Nationals, giving up two runs on three hits and four walks over four innings while striking out three.

The right-hander threw 45 of 75 pitches for strikes and once again failed to last long enough to qualify for a win despite being staked to a 4-0 lead through three innings. Font now maintains a 6.66 ERA and 24:11 K:BB through 24.1 innings and will likely move back to the bullpen with Jason Vargas (hamstring) expected to return from the 10-day injured list and rejoin the rotation for this weekend's series with the Tigers.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Starting Monday after all
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font will start Monday against the Nationals despite reports from earlier in the day suggesting he'd work out of the bullpen, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Font and his 7.08 ERA seemingly didn't inspire much confidence from the Mets, but the team evidently viewed him as the best option in the end. With seven runs allowed in 6.1 innings over his last two starts, Font is unlikely to inspire much confidence in fantasy owners, either, and it's difficult to envision him going very deep into Monday's contest, as he's yet to throw more than four innings in any outing this season.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Bypassed for start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font will work out of the bullpen for Monday's game against the Nationals, Anthony DiComo of reports.

The Mets are still down a regular rotation member in Jason Vargas (hamstring), but the team will try its luck Monday with Drew Gagnon as a temporary fifth starter after Font disappointed in his two turns. Font worked a total of 6.1 innings between those outings, surrendering seven runs on nine hits and two walks. He'll likely see most of his usage moving forward as a mop-up reliever.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Starting role in jeopardy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets haven't committed to keeping Font in the rotation the next time a fifth starter is needed Monday against the Nationals, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Jason Vargas (hamstring) won't return from the 10-day injured list until at least next weekend while he completes at least one minor-league rehab assignment beforehand, so the Mets will require a spot starter yet again. Font was immediately inserted into the rotation after being acquired from the Rays on May 6, but he's failed to make a positive impression with seven runs allowed over 6.1 innings between his two starts. If New York decides to shift Font back to a bullpen role, long reliever Drew Gagnon would be the top candidate to receive the starting nod Monday.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Rocked in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font (1-1) gave up five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two through 2.1 innings in a loss to the Nationals on Wednesday.

It wasn't an encouraging start for Font, as he allowed four baserunners and three runs in the first inning and was never able to recover. The right-hander has a 1-1 record with a 7.08 ERA through 12 appearances this season. The return of Steven Matz and Jason Vargas this week likely means Font will be bumped from the rotation.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Starting again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font will start Tuesday against the Nationals, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

He'll get another turn with Steven Matz (forearm) and Jason Vargas (hamstring) both on the injured list. Font lasted just four innings in his first start of the year Wednesday.

Mets' Wilmer Font: No decision in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font gave up two runs on three hits and zero walks over four innings during Wednesday's loss to the Padres. He struck out one and did not factor in the decision.

Font was expected to be limited to about 75 pitches since he isn't fully stretched out as a starter, but ended up only throwing 60 pitches. He was pulled for a pinch hitter in the top of the fifth inning. The 28-year-old may be a candidate for another start next week, depending on the health of Steven Matz (forearm) and Jason Vargas (hamstring).

Mets' Wilmer Font: Confirmed for Wednesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font was informed he will start Wednesday's series finale at San Diego, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Font was acquired by the Mets on Monday and will have an early opportunity to make a first impression with the spot start Wednesday as Steven Matz (forearm) is unavailable to pitch. The 28-year-old isn't fully stretched out and is expected to be limited to about 75 pitches. Font had a 5.79 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB over 14 innings with the Rays prior to being traded.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Candidate for Wednesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font could make a spot start Wednesday against the Padres, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

Steven Matz (forearm) won't pitch Wednesday after receiving a cortisone injection, so the Mets are in need of a starting pitcher for the series finale. Font was acquired by New York on Monday from the Rays and appears to be the top candidate for the job.

Mets' Wilmer Font: Acquired by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font was traded from the Rays to the Mets on Monday in exchange for cash or a player to be named later, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Font generated some low-level buzz heading into 2018 due to his high strikeout numbers and low walk numbers in the minors, but he's been unable to translate that into success at the big-league level, posting a career 6.51 ERA in 65 innings. He's pitched as both a starter and a reliever in the past and gives the Mets some much-needed depth in both areas, but he shouldn't be counted on to have a significant impact.

Rays' Wilmer Font: Joins Opening Day bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font was informed Monday that he has made the Opening Day roster, Juan Toribio of reports.

Font struggled to a 9.39 ERA through 7.2 innings this spring, but his success with the Rays last season (1.67 ERA over nine appearances) -- coupled with the fact he's out of minor-league options -- was enough to earn him a spot in the team's Opening Day bullpen. The right-hander will likely serve in multiple roles; he could work as a long reliever or as an opener when needed.

Rays' Wilmer Font: Strong in latest roster spot bid
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font was credited with the victory in a Grapefruit League win over the Pirates on Friday, firing 1.2 scoreless innings in which he allowed two hits and recorded two strikeouts.

Font hasn't exactly been sharp while trying to make a case for a bullpen spot, as his spring ERA remains an unsightly 9.39 ERA even after Friday's outing. However, he helped his cause with the brief but scoreless effort, and he'll now await a decision from manager Kevin Cash in the coming days on whether he's done enough to open the season on the big-league roster.

Rays' Wilmer Font: Roster spot appears likely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Font, who sports a 27.00 ERA through two spring appearances, is nevertheless considered a solid candidate for an Opening Day roster spot in the bullpen, Juan Toribio of reports.

One of the primary reasons for Font's strong candidacy is the fact he's out of minor-league options, while his 1.67 ERA over nine appearances in Tampa last season and his ability to fill a number of roles on the staff also bolster his case. The 28-year-old's unsightly spring numbers thus far are disturbingly reminiscent of the struggles Font endured as a member of the Dodgers early last season, but the fact he allowed just four earned runs over his nine-appearance Rays tenure before succumbing to a lat injury gives him some momentum coming into 2019.
