Cubs' Danny Hultzen: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen will be a part of the Cubs' 60-man player pool this season.

The lefty is not on the team's 40-man roster but will still get the chance to train at Wrigley Field along with 21 other pitchers. Hultzen is unlikely to make a big impact in 2020, though he does give the Cubs some veteran depth and may have some value against left-handed batters.

Cubs' Danny Hultzen: Gets reassigned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs reassigned Hultzen to their minor-league camp Thursday, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2011 first-year player draft overcame a slew of serious injuries to finally make his MLB debut at 29 years old in 2019. Though he turned in 3.1 scoreless innings across his six relief outings with the Cubs, Hultzen's status as a lefty specialist probably hurt his case for a roster spot with the three-batter minimum in place for the 2020 season. Hultzen will presumably open the campaign at Triple-A Iowa.

Cubs' Danny Hultzen: Back with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen agreed to a minor-league contract with the Cubs earlier this month, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

After several injury plagued years to begin his career, Hultzen, the second overall pick in the 2011 first-year player draft, finally reached the majors for the first time last season. Over six late-season relief appearances with the Cubs, Hultzen struck out five over 3.1 shutout innings. He'll likely get a crack at competing for a bullpen job in spring training, but his lack of a 40-man roster spot will likely hinder his chances of making the Cubs' Opening Day roster.

Danny Hultzen: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen was non-tendered by the Cubs on Monday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Hultzen appeared in six games for the Cubs last season, all in September. He didn't allow a run over 3.1 innings of work, fanning five and walking two over that stretch. Given his limited big-league experience and past shoulder injuries, he may need to accept a minor-league deal to pitch in 2020.

Cubs' Danny Hultzen: Set for first career callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen will be called up by the Cubs on Saturday, Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register reports.

Hultzen's journey to the big leagues was a lengthy one, as a string of shoulder issues derailed his career for several seasons after he was drafted second overall back in 2011, sandwiched between Gerrit Cole and Trevor Bauer. Now 29 years old, the lefty is finally ready for his first major-league opportunity after posting a 1.26 ERA and a 39.0 percent strikeout rate in 14.1 innings for Triple-A Iowa. He'll be a bullpen option down the stretch.

Cubs' Danny Hultzen: Back in action at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen debuted with Triple-A Iowa on June 16 and has struck out three over 1.2 scoreless innings through his first two relief appearances with the affiliate.

The second overall pick in the 2011 first-year player draft, Hultzen was a prized arm in the Seattle organization until a string of shoulder injuries derailed his career. Though he's logged just 28.2 total innings in affiliated ball since 2013, Hultzen said his shoulder finally feels good again, with Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune relaying that the left-hander has regained the mid-90s fastball he displayed during his amateur days at Virginia. Hultzen will still need to find regular success at Triple-A and prove he can bounce back from appearances without any renewed discomfort in his shoulder before any talk of a promotion to the Cubs gains serious traction.

Cubs' Danny Hultzen: Joins Cubs on minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Saturday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Hultzen has not pitched since undergoing shoulder surgery in July of 2016 and has logged only 10 professional innings since the 2013 season. The 2011 second-overall pick has a long road ahead if he is going to make his major-league debut in 2018, and his performance in the Cubs' minor-league spring training should provide a decent idea if that debut is a realistic possibility.

Mariners' Danny Hultzen: Reassigned to minor league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen (shoulder) was reassigned to minor league camp Saturday, MLB.com reports.

Hultzen competed for a big-league job this spring, but his pursuit was slowed by a shoulder injury that will keep him on the sidelines a while longer, and this move confirms that he will not break camp with the big club. His season figures to begin with Triple-A Tacoma.

Mariners' Danny Hultzen: Could miss extended time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen (shoulder) is "going to be down for a while," per manager Scott Servais, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Hultzen suffered a setback earlier in the week, and it now appears the situation could be a bit more severe than initially anticipated. Servais noted that the team is still considering its options with regard to Hultzen, but for now it seems unlikely that Hultzen will be taking the mound in a spring game any time soon.

Mariners' Danny Hultzen: Shut down with sore shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen is dealing with soreness in his throwing shoulder and will be shut down for a few days, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports.

Hultzen suffered what was termed "a little setback," but this is concerning given that his 2015 season came to a close due to a left shoulder injury. It's not clear when he will be ready to pitch next, but expect the Mariners to release an update on his status at some point in the next few days.

Mariners' Danny Hultzen: Expects to make spring training debut next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen is expected to make his spring training debut early next week, Bob Dutton of The News Tribune reports.

The Mariners have put Hultzen on a "go-slow" program and are being cautious with him due to his history of shoulder injuries. The former second overall pick has only pitched in 29 games since 2012 as a result of his injuries and will look to save his career in 2016 by staying healthy and transitioning into a reliever. He appears to be too much of a risk to be a viable fantasy option this season.

Mariners' Danny Hultzen: Will report to spring training as reliever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen (shoulder) will report to spring training as a reliever, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

All 35 of Hultzen's professional appearances to this point have come as a starter, but with the lefty coming off yet another season plagued by shoulder issues, the team has decided to transition him to a full-time relief role. Hultzen, the second overall pick in 2011, was designated for assignment last month, went unclaimed on waivers, and was then outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma.

Mariners' Danny Hultzen: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen (shoulder) was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, the Seattle Times reports.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2011 draft, he is out of options and coming of a 2015 season plagued by shoulder issues, so it's not much of a surprise that the lefty went unclaimed on waivers. Hultzen will remain in the Mariners' organization at least through 2017, after which he can become a minor league free agent if he's not on the 40-man roster.

Mariners' Danny Hultzen: Designated for assignment Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hultzen was designated for assignment on Friday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Hultzen was out of options, so this move doesn't really come as much of a surprise. He'll likely pass through waivers unclaimed and be sent outright to the minors, where he will look to rehab his oft-injured shoulder.
