Braves' Grant Dayton: Transferred to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton (toe) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

Dayton has been on the injured list since July 12 and just began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday. The shift was likely made to create a 40-man roster spot for Francisco Cervelli. Dayton is now eligible to return Sept. 10.

Braves' Grant Dayton: Beginning rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton (toe) is set to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

Dayton has been sidelined since July 12 due to a broken right big toe, but he's inching closer to a return from the injured list. He'll likely need a handful of minor-league appearances before being activated.

Braves' Grant Dayton: Out with broken toe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton was placed on the 10-day injured list with a broken right big toe Thursday.

Dayton is expected to be out for a month, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. He had been pitching well prior to the injury, recording a 2.16 ERA and a 29.7 percent strikeout rate in 8.1 innings of work. Anthony Swarzak (shoulder) returned from the injured list to take Dayton's spot in the bullpen in a corresponding move.

Braves' Grant Dayton: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

Dayton will make his way to the majors for the third time this season while Bryse Wilson is sent to Gwinnett in a corresponding move. Dayton has pitched well in the majors this year with one run allowed and a 10:3 K:BB over 7.2 innings.

Braves' Grant Dayton: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Dayton spent a week in the big leagues, allowing two runs (one earned) in 3.2 innings of work while striking out an impressive nine batters. Kyle Wright was called up in a corresponding move.

June 17, 2019 03:24 PM
Braves' Grant Dayton: Returns to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Dayton threw four scoreless innings for the Braves earlier in the season. He owns a strong 2.65 ERA and a 0.82 WHIP in 17 frames for Gwinnett. Huascar Ynoa was optioned in a corresponding move.

May 9, 2019 02:28 PM
Braves' Grant Dayton: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

Dayton made five appearances during his time with the Braves, allowing four hits and a walk while striking out one across four scoreless innings. Kyle Wright was summoned from the minors in a corresponding move to provide length out of Atlanta's bullpen. Look for Dayton to rejoin the big-league bullpen when a fresh arm is needed.

Braves' Grant Dayton: Called up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Dayton will replace Chad Sobotka (abdomen), who was sent to the injured list Monday, on the active roster and in the bullpen. The veteran southpaw owns a sharp 1.69 ERA, 0.53 WHIP and 8:0 K:BB through five appearances (5.1 innings) with the Stripers so far this season. Dayton, who missed all of last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, owns a respectable 3.42 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 59:18 K:BB across parts of two big-league seasons (50 innings).

March 12, 2019 01:08 PM
Braves' Grant Dayton: Dispatched to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves optioned Dayton to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

Dayton was sidelined for the entire 2018 season while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, so the Braves want to see him pick up some innings in the minors before potentially giving him a look in their bullpen during the summer. Prior to getting hurt, Dayton demonstrated some intriguing swing-and-miss stuff over his two seasons in the big leagues with the Dodgers. He owns a stellar 29.1 strikeout percentage over 50 career innings in the majors.

Braves' Grant Dayton: Given clean bill of health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton (elbow) is back to full health, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Dayton will enter spring training with a clean bill of health after missing the entire 2018 campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery. The 31-year-old impressed as a rookie with the Dodgers in 2016, notching a 2.05 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 39:6 K:BB across 26.1 innings of relief, though it remains to be seen if he'll regain his effectiveness following such an extended layoff. Dayton should compete for a bullpen role in camp.

February 14, 2018 01:20 PM
Braves' Grant Dayton: Placed on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton (elbow) was put on the 60-day DL on Wednesday.

In an expected move, the club transferred Dayton to the disabled list as he continues to recover from Tommy John surgery he underwent in late August. The Braves signed catcher Chris Stewart to a one-year contract in a corresponding move. It's expected that Dayton will miss the entire 2018 season.

November 20, 2017 11:44 PM
Braves' Grant Dayton: Claimed off waivers by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton was claimed off waivers by the Braves on Monday.

Before being claimed by Atlanta on Monday, Dayton had been a member of the Dodgers. With a 4.94 ERA and 1.31 WHIP that was built over 29 games (23.2 innings), Dayton had a down year in 2017. Despite last year's struggles, he's shown he has some upside out of the bullpen, as he logged an ERA and WHIP of 2.05 and 0.76, respectively, during the 2016 season. However, Dayton recently underwent Tommy John surgery and is slated to miss the entire 2018 season.

Dodgers' Grant Dayton: Transferred to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday.

This was merely a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Dayton underwent Tommy John surgery earlier in the week and will likely miss all of 2018.

August 31, 2017 03:48 PM
Dodgers' Grant Dayton: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton had his Tommy John surgery performed Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.

Dayton is expected to require at least 12 months to heal from the procedure, so it's highly unlikely that he'll factor into the Dodgers' bullpen mix at any point in 2018. After a strong finish to the 2016 season, Dayton looked like he could be the top setup option for closer Kenley Jansen entering the current campaign, but health issues and ineffectiveness prior to the season-ending elbow procedure prevented that from materializing. He'll wrap up the season with a 4.94 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 23.2 innings.

Dodgers' Grant Dayton: Needs Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday to repair his elbow, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Due to the lengthy recovery process associated with Tommy John surgery, Dayton will likely have to miss almost all of the 2018 season. Dayton pitched 23.2 innings over 29 games for the Dodgers in the 2017 campaign, during which he posted a 4.94 ERA and 1.31 WHIP.

Dodgers' Grant Dayton: Getting second opinion on elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton (elbow) is getting a second opinion, as the first scan was unclear, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

This is obviously not a great sign. The results of the second opinion should be available in the coming days, and at that point we should know whether or not he will need surgery.

Dodgers' Grant Dayton: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton (neck) was sent back to Los Angeles for tests after feeling tightness in his elbow Friday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

This is another tough break for Dayton, as the 29-year-old, who has made just two appearances for the Dodgers since the start of July, can't seem to get healthy. It's unclear how long this issue will set him back in his current rehab from a recurring neck injury, but more should be known once the results of his tests are disclosed.

August 16, 2017 08:48 PM
Dodgers' Grant Dayton: To begin rehab assignment over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton (neck) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment sometime over the weekend, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Dayton, who has been hampered by a recurring neck injury this summer, is expected to need five minor-league rehab appearances before being ready to rejoin the big-league bullpen. More specifics regarding his rehab assignment will likely be announced before the weekend.

August 15, 2017 07:40 PM
Dodgers' Grant Dayton: To embark on rehab assignment soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton (neck) will likely begin a minor-league rehab assignment in the coming days, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Dayton has been plagued by a neck injury multiple times this summer, but he's ready to wrap up his lengthy rehab and rejoin the Dodgers' bullpen for the final months of the season. His rehab assignment will likely be announced in the next week or so.

July 29, 2017 03:20 PM
Dodgers' Grant Dayton: Back on DL with neck issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dayton was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a neck injury Friday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Dayton only returned from the DL last week after recovering from a similar issue, but the ailment appears to be lingering, sidelining the reliever yet again. It wasn't the best of returns for the southpaw regardless, as he allowed three earned runs over one inning in his return and then blew his first save of the season three days later against the Twins. Dayton missed two weeks in his prior trip to the disabled list, so if he has a similar timetable this time he projects to be back in the Dodger bullpen by mid-August.
