Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Shifts to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday.

Kahnle underwent Tommy John surgery last August and is likely to miss most -- if not all -- of the 2021 season. The move opens a spot on the 40-man roster for Jimmy Nelson.

Dodgers' Tommy Kahnle: Agrees to two-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (elbow) signed a two-year, $4.75 million contract with the Dodgers on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Kahnle will be unavailable for most or all of the 2021 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in August, but he reached a two-year deal with Los Angeles after parting ways with the Yankees at the end of October. The right-hander made 73 relief appearances over the last two seasons, posting a 3.61 ERA and 91:21 K:BB over 62.1 innings. Once Kahnle returns to full health, he should operate as a late reliever for the Dodgers.

Tommy Kahnle: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (elbow) elected free agency Saturday rather than accepting an outright assignment.

Kahnle is expected to miss most of the 2021 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in early August, and he'll now head into free agency instead of remaining with the Yankees. It's unclear when the 31-year-old could land another contract as he's still in the early stages of a lengthy recovery process.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Lands on 45-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (elbow) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Thursday.

He opted for Tommy John surgery earlier this week. Given the timing of the injury, it will take a very smooth recovery for Kahnle to return in 2021. Next year is his final year under club control, so it's possible the Yankees will non-tender him at some point in the next year.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Opts for Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery in New York on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Tommy John surgery was believed to be on the table for Kahnle after he was diagnosed with a UCL injury Friday and was moved to the injured list, and the right-hander didn't wait long before electing to go under the knife. He'll now be sidelined for the rest of the season and the majority of the 2021 campaign while recovering from surgery. Since joining the Yankees midway through the 2017 season, Kahnle has appeared in 129 games and posted a 4.01 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 23.3 K-BB% while notching 38 holds and one save.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Likely requires surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (forearm) will likely require Tommy John surgery after being diagnosed with a UCL issue, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Kahnle was unavailable for Thursday's game and placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, but manager Aaron Boone revealed that the right-hander will likely require surgery to fix his significant injury. The 30-year-old will undergo further testing to confirm the need for surgery, but Kahnle will miss all of 2020 and most or all of next season if he indeed requires surgery.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Out with forearm tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with right forearm tightness, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

The right-hander hasn't seen game action since making his season debut Sunday, and he remains without a timetable for his return. According to James Wagner of The New York Times, Kahnle underwent an MRI on Friday and is scheduled to be evaluated by the team doctor later in the day.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Unavailable Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was unavailable for Thursday's win over the Orioles, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Manager Aaron Boone said that the team would have an update on Kahnle's status Friday, indicating that there could be an issue that holds the reliever out for an extended period. Kahnle has made just one appearance on the campaign, allowing a hit and a walk in one inning of work against the Nationals on July 26.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Solid in spring action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle held opponents scoreless over four innings in Grapefruit League play, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out four.

Kahnle emerged as a key part of New York's bullpen last season, amassing 27 holds and registering a 35.5 percent strikeout rate. Armed with one of the premier changeups in baseball, Kahnle is capable of generating high strikeout numbers and could be first in line for save opportunities should Aroldis Chapman miss any period of time.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Reaches one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle and the Yankees agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.65 million contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Kahnle threw 61.1 innings for the Yankees last season, posting a 3.67 ERA and a 35.5 percent strikeout rate. It was a significant bounce-back from his struggles in 2018, when he recorded a 6.56 ERA in 23.1 innings

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Available Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (hand) is available Friday against Toronto, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Kahnle battled wrist tendinitis earlier in the week but returned to pitch an inning Thursday against the Tigers. He then injured his hand on a bin of sunflower seeds in the dugout and had to be checked out by team trainers, but he's apparently been cleared to pitch.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Shaky in relief outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (wrist) surrendered two runs on a hit and a walk while striking out one over one innings in Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

Kahnle hadn't pitched since Saturday due to right wrist tendinitis, but he was able to return to the mound for the nightcap. After struggling through his outing, he hurt his hand on a sunflower seeds bin in the dugout, per Bryan Hoch of, which warranted further evaluation by team trainers. The Yankees have yet to issue an update on the right-hander's status.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Dealing with wrist tendinitis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Tigers due to right wrist tendinitis, Bryan Hoch of reports.

The 30-year-old hasn't pitched since Saturday when he gave up two hits in one-third of an inning. Manager Aaron Boone expects him to be available Wednesday, and per Lindsey Adler of The Athletic, Kahnle said the tendinitis cropped up over the last few days, though it's since cleared up.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Notches 17th hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle picked up his 17th hold of the season while notching a strikeout as part of a perfect seventh inning Thursday in the Yankees' 8-4 win over the Rays.

After a rough 2018 campaign in the Bronx, Kahnle has regained more than a full tick on his fastball and has seen his performance bounce back accordingly. Along with free-agent pickups Adam Ottavino and Zack Britton, Kahnle has firmly established himself as one of the top setup options for closer Aroldis Chapman. In addition to his lofty holds total, Kahnle has submitted a 3.18 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 49 strikeouts over 34 frames.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Inks deal with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle signed a one-year contract with the Yankees on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Kahnle had a rough season out of the bullpen for the Yankees in 2018, posting a 6.56 ERA with a 1.63 WHIP and 30 punchouts across 23.1 innings. The 29-year-old does own a career 3.89 ERA and 1.35 WHIP and found success in 2016-17 with the White Sox.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Notches win in extra innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle (2-0) registered the win in extra innings Saturday, working around a hit to strike out a batter in a scoreless frame.

The right-hander has allowed at least one run in three of his last five outings while working in low-leverage spots, but Kahnle came through in this one to preserve a tie before the Yankees won it in the 11th. This victory did little to clean up his 6.75 ERA on the season, though.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Records first save of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle struck out one in a perfect inning of work to earn his first save of the season Tuesday against the Marlins.

With the game in extra innings, Aroldis Chapman (knee) was called upon to protect a one-run lead before leaving with an injury. Kahnle was summoned to close it out and did so with aplomb, retiring the side on 17 pitches. With numerous other options in the bullpen, including the likes of Dellin Betances, David Robertson (shoulder) and Zach Britton, Kahnle seems quite unlikely to see many more save opportunities, even if Chapman misses time.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Called up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Thursday, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

Kahnle will take the roster place of Luis Cessa, who was optioned back to the minors following his start against Tampa Bay on Wednesday. Though Kahnle tossed an inning of work versus Boston earlier this month, he's only appeared in nine games for the Yankees this season, as he's spent a majority of the past couple months at the Triple-A level working through some velocity issues.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Optioned back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was sent down to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday.

Kahnle was returned to Triple-A after tossing a spotless inning of relief during Friday's contest. That marked his first appearance with the Yankees since May, though it's clear manager Aaron Boone doesn't have a concrete role ready for the right-hander at the moment.

Yankees' Tommy Kahnle: Joins Yankees on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kahnle was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, DJ Eberle of the Times Leader reports.

The Yankees are optimistic that Kahnle will be available for Friday's contest in Boston, but there's a chance he won't arrive on time after being promoted just five hours prior to the first pitch. Kahnle has spent a majority of the 2018 campaign working out the kinks at the Triple-A level, which includes a concerning dip in velocity from a season ago. Across his past 17 appearances for the RailRiders dating back to June 15, he's logged a 1.62 ERA and 0.90 WHIP with 23 strikeouts in 16.2 innings of relief.
