Mets' Matt Purke: Reassigned to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets reassigned Purke to their minor-league camp Tuesday.

Purke had been auditioning for a relief role with the Mets in spring training but was likely removed from consideration after starting candidates Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman shifted to the bullpen. It's likely that Purke will report to Triple-A Las Vegas after spending the entire 2017 campaign in the International League as a member of the White Sox organization.

Mets' Matt Purke: Sent home with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purke has been sent home with the flu and will be back at spring camp once he's fully recovered, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

This doesn't appear to be too much cause for concern but there will be an update on the situation if Purke suffers any sort of setback. The left-hander spent last season at the Triple-A level within the White Sox's organization and is looking to make an impression at the Mets' spring camp.

Mets' Matt Purke: Signs with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purke signed a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training with the Mets on Friday.

Purke appeared in 48 games with Triple-A Charlotte in the White Sox's system last season, posting a 3.84 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 65.2 relief innings. The 27-year-old has only pitched in 12 career big-league games -- all coming in 2016 -- but will look to find a home with the Mets this spring.

White Sox's Matt Purke: Sent to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purke was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday.

He failed to make the big-league club out of camp, and will open the year providing organizational bullpen depth at Triple-A Charlotte. Purke has really struggled with his control against upper-level hitting, and does not figure to earn a high-leverage role anytime soon.

White Sox's Matt Purke: Clears waivers Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purke cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Purke was designated for assignment last week, but after no team decided to swipe him off the White Sox's hands, he'll head to the minors to continue being an organizational depth piece. The left-hander found some success at Triple-A following a switch to being a reliever, although that didn't translate to the majors, as he posted a 5.50 ERA in 18 innings out of the big-league bullpen.

White Sox's Matt Purke: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purke was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Wednesday.

Purke failed to impress during his first major league innings in 2016, posting a 5.50 ERA and walking 12 in 18 innings. That likely made the injury-plagued former prospect expendable for a rebuilding White Sox organization.

White Sox's Matt Purke: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purke was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

Purke didn't record an out in his appearance Wednesday, allowing a walk and a hit before being pulled. He's struggled with walks (12 in 18 innings) and owns a 6.00 ERA after both of his baserunners came around to score. The team has yet to announce his replacement on the 25-man roster, but that news should come prior to Thursday's series finale against the Twins.

White Sox's Matt Purke: Appears in first MLB innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purke has pitched 10 innings since his contract was purchased by the White Sox on May 13, allowing four earned runs in that time.

As expected, Purke has pitched in low-leverage situations, only making appearances in games when the White Sox were losing by three or more runs. He's been a relatively solid option, as all four runs came in one inning of action, leaving him with nine shutout innings for the season.

White Sox's Matt Purke: Contract purchased by White Sox on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purke had his contract purchased by the White Sox on Friday.

The White Sox had one spot to fill on the major league roster after sending Scott Carroll to Triple-A on Thursday, so Purke will get the chance to make his first appearance in the majors. He's maintained a 2.30 ERA with Triple-A Charlotte this season, and he'll try to bring that up with him to the big leagues, although it will likely come in more low-leverage situations with Chicago.

White Sox's Matt Purke: Reassigned to minor league camp Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox reassigned Purke to minor league camp Thursday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Purke was a one-time top-100 prospect with the Nationals, but he has pitched all of 55.2 innings above High-A in his four minor league seasons. He should begin 2016 at Double-A as bullpen depth

White Sox's Matt Purke: Signs with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Purke signed a minor league deal with the White Sox on Tuesday.

Purke split time across three levels in 2015, but struggled once earning a promotion to Double-A to the tune of a 6.29 ERA in 10 appearances (five starts). The 25-year-old could work his way up the organizational ranks, but he's unlikely to factor into the big league roster at any point.
