Angels' Ryan Buchter: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

Buchter signed a minor-league deal in February and was added to the 40-man roster Sunday, but it appears he'll be in the minors once baseball resumes. The veteran southpaw had a 2.98 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 50:23 K:BB across 45.1 innings during 2019, but he'll likely be impacted by the new three-batter minimum this season.

Angels' Ryan Buchter: Joins 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter had his contract selected by the Angels on Sunday.

The veteran left-hander joined the team on a minor-league deal in February and tossed five scoreless frames in Cactus League play before spring training was suspended, which was apparently enough for him to earn a spot on the 40-man roster. Buchter had a 2.98 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 50:23 K:BB over 45.1 innings last season and has a sub-3.00 ERA over the last four years, though his usage once play resumes in 2020 figures to be impacted by the new three-batter minimum.

Angels' Ryan Buchter: Added by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter signed a minor-league deal with the Angels on Monday which includes an invitation to big-league camp, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The 33-year-old lefty has 214 big-league innings under his belt and owns a strong 2.86 ERA. He posted a 2.98 ERA in 45.1 innings for Oakland last season, though his 4.96 FIP suggests his performance wasn't particularly impressive.

Ryan Buchter: Non-tendered by Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter will become a free agent after being non-tendered by the Athletics on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Buchter posted a solid 2.98 ERA and 1.43 WHIP with 50 punchouts over 45.1 innings, but he'll head to the open market after failing to receive a contract extension.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Picks up relief win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter (1-1) earned the win Saturday, allowing just two hits and a walk while striking out one in 1.1 innings in an 8-6 win over the Rangers.

Saturday's game became an impromptu bullpen game for the Athletics when Mike Fiers exited with an arm injury in the second inning. Buchter ended the fourth by striking out Elvis Andrus after allowing an inherited runner to score, but he kept it clean in the fifth after the Athletics restored a two-run lead with a Mark Canha homer. Buchter has a 2.79 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 42 innings this season, adding 12 holds while primarily working in the middle innings. He has fired off 6.1 scoreless innings over his last eight appearances.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Highly effective middle reliever
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter, who logged his 10th hold in a win over the Twins on Friday by firing 1.1 hitless innings in which he issued one walk, has a 1.17 ERA, .207 BAA and five holds over his last 13 appearances.

The veteran southpaw has proven to be a versatile asset out of the bullpen for manager Bob Melvin, and after some uncharacteristic control problems earlier in the season, he's progressively settled in by issuing just four walks over the aforementioned 13-outing stretch. Buchter's 3.16 ERA and 1.60 WHIP still actually qualify as career worsts for the 32-year-old, but the fact they've been improved steadily over the last month-plus lends credence to the notion he's firmly on his way back to his solid career norms.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Charged with blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter was charged with a blown save Wednesday at Angel Stadium after walking in a run and failing to record an out.

Buchter came into the eighth inning with two outs and the bases loaded. His first and only batter faced was Shohei Ohtani, and unfortunately, he walked him to tie the game. The good news is that the run was charged to Liam Hendriks. The bad news is that the A's wound up losing on a walkoff double in the ninth. Buchter now owns a 4.00 ERA and 1.78 WHIP through 30 games this season.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Improved since latest promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter owns a 1.42 ERA, .143 BAA and 1.11 WHIP over nine appearances since being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on April 29.

Prior to being demoted to the Aviators on April 22, Buchter had generated a bloated 7.04 ERA over his first 7.2 innings of the season. The veteran southpaw got the call back up to the big leagues just eight days later, however, and he's been vastly improved in his second stint of the season with the Athletics. Buchter has allowed just one earned run in his last nine trips to the mound, which came on a solo home run he yielded to the Indians' Roberto Perez last Sunday.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.

Buchter didn't perform well during his time in the big leagues earlier in the season, recording a 7.04 ERA in 7.2 innings. He walked 16.3 percent of opposing batters. Mark Canha (wrist) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

April 22, 2019 05:56 PM
Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Headed to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.

Buchter was likely unavailable Monday after being used in each of the past two games, so the A's decided to swap him out for a fresh bullpen arm (Ryan Dull). The southpaw struggled to a 7.04 ERA and 2.48 WHIP during his time with the big club.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Knocked around in exhibition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter allowed four earned runs on two hits and three walks without recording an out in an exhibition win over the Giants on Monday.

All four Giants runs were charged to Buchter, who allowed an RBI single to Steven Duggar and a bases-loaded walk to the pinch-hitting Abiatal Avelino. The veteran southpaw will play on a one-year deal this season after an impressive Athletics 2018 debut campaign in which he generated a 2.75 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 54 appearances. He already saw action in both games of the season-opening series versus the Mariners in Japan last week, allowing an earned run on a hit and a walk over two-thirds of an inning.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Avoids arbitration with Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter agreed to a one-year, $1.4 million contract with the Athletics on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

The southpaw put up a strong season in the Oakland bullpen in 2018, producing a 2.75 ERA and a 41:15 K:BB in 39.1 innings of work. With the contract out of the way, Buchter figures to to reprise his role as the top lefty in the Athletics' bullpen for the 2019 campaign.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Grabs second victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter (2-0) fired a scoreless eighth inning in a win over the Tigers on Tuesday, allowing a hit and two walks while recording three strikeouts.

It was an eventful inning for Buchter to say the least, one that took him 24 pitches to get through. The left-hander sandwiched strikeouts of Leonys Martin and Victor Martinez around a Jeimer Candelario double and an intentional walk of Nick Castellanos. After issuing a free pass to Niko Goodrum, Buchter then got himself of the bases-loaded jam by striking out John Hicks after falling behind 2-0. Manager Bob Melvin has opted to put Buchter right to work following his two-month absence due to a shoulder injury, as he's called on him on back-to-back nights since his activation from the disabled list.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Gives up run in DL return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter, who was activated from the disabled list earlier in the day, surrendered an earned run on one hit without recording an out in a win over the Tigers on Monday.

The southpaw was brought on in a matchup-based move to face the same-handed Leonys Martin, but he faltered by allowing a ground-rule double to the Tigers outfielder. Buchter was subsequently charged with an earned run after exiting when Martin crossed the plate on the three-run home run that Lou Trivino surrendered to Nick Castellanos. It was only the third earned run overall on Buchter's ledger so far this season, and despite the stumble, he'll retain his role as a top left-handed relief option.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Reinstated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter (shoulder) was reinstated from the disabled list Monday.

Buchter has been out since late April with a shoulder injury. He had a stellar 1.69 ERA prior to the injury and recorded ERAs of 2.89 and 2.86 in the past two seasons. He could be used in high-leverage situations for the Athletics, though Blake Treinen is very firmly entrenched as the team's closer.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Final minor-league tune-up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter (shoulder), who's likely to be activated at some point during the three-game series against the Tigers that begins next Monday, fired a scoreless one-third of an inning for Triple-A Nashville on Friday. He recorded a strikeout on three pitches.

Buchter mowed down Willie Calhoun, the only batter he faced, to open the eighth inning. The 31-year-old lefty appears ready for a return to the big-league club after working a total of 5.1 innings over six minor-league appearances. He'll presumably slot back into a middle-relief role in the Athletics bullpen upon activation, a role he's parlayed into a 1.69 ERA over 13 appearances thus far in 2018.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Another solid rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter (shoulder) was credited with the win in Triple-A Nashville's victory over Round Rock on Thursday, allowing a hit, uncorking a wild pitch and recording a strikeout over a scoreless seventh inning.

The recovering reliever has now pitched five scoreless innings across five minor-league outings, and he remains on track for a return to the big-league club next week. The 16 pitches Buchter threw Thursday brought his rehab total to 71 overall, which would appear sufficient to both corroborate the fitness of his shoulder and condition his arm for a return to relief work at the big-league level.

Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Expected back against Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter (shoulder) is expected to rejoin the Athletics during their four-game series against the Tigers next week, which begins Monday, Jane Lee of reports.

Buchter started his minor-league rehab assignment early last week and has fired four scoreless innings with High-A Stockton and Triple-A Nashville. He'll make a couple more appearances for the Sounds, and barring any setbacks, he should be back in the big-league bullpen early next week. Prior to landing on the shelf, Buchter compiled a solid 1.69 ERA across 10.2 innings.

June 18, 2018 01:40 PM
Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Likely to rejoin team on next road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter (shoulder) threw a scoreless inning for Triple-A Nashville on Saturday and could rejoin the Athletics in either Chicago or Detroit during their upcoming road trip, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The Athletics' road trip actually begins Tuesday in San Diego, with a quick two-game set against the Padres on tap. The reliever should thus have an opportunity to make at least one more rehab appearance before the White Sox series begins Thursday, but given that he's already logged three outings overall with High-A Stockton and Nashville, that may be unnecessary.

June 13, 2018 11:52 AM
Athletics' Ryan Buchter: Receives rehab timeline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchter (shoulder), who threw 16 pitches in his first rehab start with High-A Stockton on Monday, will make one more rehab appearance with the Ports before making four additional appearances with Triple-A Nashville prior to his activation, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Buchter has not pitched in the majors since landing on the disabled list with a shoulder injury in late April. He'll likely require another couple of weeks in the minors before being activated from the DL.
