Diamondbacks' T.J. McFarland: Returns to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFarland signed a one-year deal to come back to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

McFarland was recently non-tendered by the club at the beginning of the month, but will find his way back into the bullpen after appearing in 43 games for Arizona in 2017. During those outings, he posted a 5.33 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 54 innings, but held left-handed batters to just a .222 average and only allowed four home runs all year. The southpaw will likely be used in a similar capacity to this past season as a sixth- or seventh-inning arm.

T.J. McFarland: Non-tendered by Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks declined to tender McFarland a contract for 2018, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

McFarland rarely misses bats (4.8 K/9 last year), but he keeps the ball on the ground (67 percent groundball rate) and limits the free passes (2.8 BB/9). Those abilities, along with his success against same-handed hitters last season (.233 wOBA), should be more than enough for McFarland to earn a big-league invite to spring training.

Diamondbacks' T.J. McFarland: Submits clean seventh inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFarland tossed a perfect seventh inning and struck out two batters in a 6-2 loss to the Padres on Tuesday.

McFarland opened September with holds in his first two appearances of the month, but he's since settled back into lower-leverage work out of the Arizona bullpen. That should be the norm for the rest of the regular season, as McFarland's 5.44 ERA and 1.50 WHIP won't allow manager Torey Lovullo to deploy the lefty with much confidence in key spots.

Diamondbacks' T.J. McFarland: Mops up in Thursday's victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFarland tossed two scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Thursday's 8-1 win over the Dodgers. He gave up one hit and one walk and struck out a batter.

It was McFarland's first appearance since Aug. 20, when he was needed for a spot start against the Twins when Robbie Ray was still on the disabled list with a concussion. With the Diamondbacks' rotation now at full strength and further pitching staff reinforcements to come Friday when rosters expand, McFarland's outings should be limited to mop-up duty in relief during non-competitive games throughout September.

Diamondbacks' T.J. McFarland: Overwhelmed by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFarland (4-5) allowed seven runs on five hits and two walks while recording just a single out during Sunday's loss to Minnesota.

This was McFarland's first start of the season, and he entered with a 10.45 ERA through six relief appearances in August, so Sunday's poor outing shouldn't be overly surprising. Still, it's pretty rare for a starter to fail to pitch out of the first inning. McFarland projects to return to the bullpen, and if he's scheduled for a spot start in the future, fantasy expectations should be kept in check.
