Pirates' Chase De Jong: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.

De Jong underwent season-ending surgery on the cartilage in his left knee last week, so his move to the 60-day IL is simply procedural. The transaction will make room on the 40-man roster for Steven Brault (lat), who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Undergoes season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong underwent surgery on the cartilage in his left knee Tuesday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

De Jong was sent for an MRI last week after he was placed on the 10-day IL with left knee inflammation, and he'll face a five-month recovery timetable following his procedure. The right-hander made a career-high nine starts in the majors this year and recorded a 5.77 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 43.2 innings. De Jong will now shift his attention toward getting ready for spring training in 2022.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Gets MRI on knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that De Jong (knee) underwent an MRI after being placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

Tomczyk didn't reveal the results of the MRI, but the fact that De Jong was sent in for further examinations implies that the Pirates had some level of concern he was dealing with something more significant than left knee inflammation. De Jong will be eligible to return from the IL before the end of the month, but the Pirates likely won't have a clear idea of when he might be ready for activation until he starts throwing again.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Moves to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with left knee inflammation, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander was struck on the knee by a liner during Monday's loss to Arizona, which figures to be how the issue arose. He'll be eligible to come off the injured list July 30, but it's not yet clear whether he'll be forced to miss additional time. The Pirates figure to provide an update on De Jong in the coming days.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Handed loss Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong (1-4) took the loss Monday against the Diamondbacks after allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings.

Although he gave up seven hits, all four runs De Jong surrendered came via the long ball. He allowed Pavin Smith and Josh VanMeter to go back-to-back in the second, and Eduardo Escobar launched a two-run shot in the fifth to make it 4-0. The 27-year-old has now given up at least four runs in four of his last five starts, and he's allowed five homers across his last two outings. He did tie his season high in strikeouts, but that's not much consolation for those who rolled him out in fantasy. De Jong now sports a 5.77 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and a 39:19 K:BB over 43.2 innings. He's in line for a matchup against the Brewers next week.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Ugly first inning in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong allowed five runs on four hits and three walks with three strikeouts in five innings, taking a no-decision versus the Mets on Sunday.

The right-hander allowed a two-run home run to Francisco Lindor and a three-run blast to Michael Conforto in the first inning. After the nightmarish start, De Jong was able to settle in, and the Pirates ultimately got him off the hook when they rallied ahead in the ninth. He's still struggled to an unimpressive 5.59 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 33:17 K:BB across 38.2 innings spanning eight starts this year.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Finally gets in win column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong (1-3) picked up the win in Monday's 11-1 rout of Atlanta, allowing one run on four hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out four.

The Pirates had scored only eight runs in total over the last four games De Jong started, but this time, they gave him more than enough run support to get into the win column. The right-hander threw 92 pitches (54 strikes) before exiting, and he has yet to pitch more than five innings in any of his seven trips to the mound. De Jong sports a 5.08 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 30:14 K:BB through 33.2 innings, and he's lined up to get one more start before the All-Star break, which will come on the road against the Mets this weekend.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Takes loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong (0-3) took the loss against Colorado on Tuesday, pitching five innings and allowing five runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out three.

Opposing starter German Marquez hurled a one-hit gem for Colorado, so De Jong never had much of a chance in his bid for his first big-league win since 2018. He fell behind 2-0 after two innings and was tagged for three more runs in the fifth en route to his third loss of the campaign. The right-hander did tie his season high with five innings, but that was accompanied by tying his season-worst mark by allowing five earned runs. De Jong will carry an unappealing 5.65 ERA into his next start, which is currently scheduled to come at home against Atlanta early next week.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong (0-2) took the loss Wednesday against the White Sox, allowing four runs on seven hits while striking out six and walking two in 4.2 innings.

The righty was very inefficient, allowing traffic on the bases in all but one of his innings and requiring 95 pitches to get through 4.2 frames. Wednesday marked a step backwards for De Jong after he allowed one and two runs in his previous two starts, respectively. The six strikeouts were a season high, however, and he's expected to make his next start Monday at Coors Field.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Takes tough loss to Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong (0-1) took the loss Wednesday as the Pirates were downed 3-1 by the Nationals, allowing one run on four hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out five.

The right-hander served up a solo shot to Yan Gomes in the second inning but was otherwise sharp, tossing 44 of 71 pitches for strikes. Unfortunately he exited in a 1-0 hole, and the Bucs weren't able to tie it up and get De Jong off the hook for the loss. He has yet to last more than five innings in any of his four starts, but De Jong will take a 4.26 ERA and 17:9 K:BB through 19 innings into his next outing.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Walks four in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong allowed two runs on four hits and four walks over five innings Friday and did not factor in the decision in a loss to Milwaukee. He struck out two.

De Jong gave up a pair of runs in the second inning but settled in and ended with a respectable line, although his control issues proved to be contagious as Pittsburgh arms issued 11 walks in total Friday. The 27-year-old now owns a 4.80 ERA after giving up seven runs over 10 innings in his last two starts. He is lined up to start in Washington next week.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Gives up five runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Marlins after allowing five runs on seven hits (including three home runs) and a walk while fanning five across five innings.

De Jong didn't have his best stuff Saturday and particularly struggled with the long ball, as he allowed three in just five innings. The right-hander owns a 10:3 K:BB over his first two outings of the campaign. He could make another start next week, though that may depend on whether JT Brubaker (personal) returns from the bereavement list.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Gets second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Marlins, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

JT Brubaker (personal) doesn't appear on track to return from the bereavement list this week, so De Jong will be called upon to make a second straight spot start in his stead. De Jong acquitted himself well in his 2021 debut last weekend against the Rockies, working five innings while striking out five and giving up one run on three hits and two walks in a no-decision.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: On track for another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong is a candidate to make another start for the Pirates, Jake Crouse of mlb.com reports.

General manager Ben Cherington said Sunday that he hopes De Jong will get another shot in the rotation. "I think our hope is that we have a little bit of a runway now," Cherington said. "We wanted to have some confidence about that because he obviously wasn't on the roster. He is now. He is out of options. We hope that there's an opportunity for him." With Chad Kuhl, JT Brubaker and Trevor Cahill all soon expected back in the rotation, De Jong will need to once again impress in his next outing. The 27-year-old was in line for a win Sunday until Richard Rodriguez suffered his first blown save of 2021.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Whiffs five in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out five in five innings during Sunday's loss to the Rockies. He didn't factor into the decision.

De Jong was in line for the win when he left Sunday's contest since he only allowed one run via a triple in the top of the fourth inning. However, the Rockies put together a late rally, so De Jong was forced to settle for a no-decision in his 2021 debut. If De Jong remains in the rotation, he tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Marlins on Saturday.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Gets starting nod Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong has been called up and will start Sunday's game against the Rockies, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Rumblings of De Jong taking the ball Sunday started earlier in the morning with there being reports that the right hander was throwing in Pittsburgh on Saturday. The 27-year-old has tallied 20 innings this season at Triple-A Indianapolis, allowing eight earned runs on 16 hits and eight walks.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Candidate for MLB start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong was seen throwing prior to the game in Pittsburgh on Saturday, indicating that he could be called up to start Sunday against the Rockies, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The Pirates have not announced a starter for Sunday's matchup. Given that De Jong was in Pittsburgh on Saturday, it seems fair to reason that the Pirates are at least considering him as an option to take the mound. The right hander last pitched in the majors in 2020 with the Astros, allowing 12 earned runs across 7.1 innings.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Sent to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday.

De Jong was competing for job as a non-roster invitee and made a strong case for himself, posting a 1.88 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in 14.1 spring innings. That apparently wasn't enough, however, so he'll head to the minors to serve as organizational depth to open the year.

Pirates' Chase De Jong: Inks minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong signed a minor-league contract with the Pirates on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

De Jong has made just four appearances (two starts) over the past two seasons, and he elected free agency at the end of October following a rough season with the Astros. The right-hander allowed 12 runs on 12 hits and four walks while striking out nine over 7.1 innings in 2020, and he'll have to compete for major-league playing time in 2021. He could serve as a non-roster invitee during spring training, but he could certainly begin the season in the minors given his struggles over the past several seasons.

October 30, 2020 06:28 PM
Chase De Jong: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De Jong cleared waivers Friday and elected free agency, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

De Jong threw 7.1 innings for the Astros this season, allowing 12 runs. The poor performance raised his career ERA to 7.12 in 54.1 frames spread over the last four years. That will presumably leave him searching for a minor-league deal on the open market.
