Tropeano was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.
Tropeano will head back to the minors after getting lit up for seven runs in five innings during a spot start against the Orioles on Friday. The right-hander now owns an unsightly 9.88 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 10:6 K:BB through three starts (13.2 innings) with the big club this season. Jose Rodriguez was summoned from the minors to take his place on the roster.
Tropeano (0-1) was charged with the loss against the Orioles on Friday after allowing seven runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three over five innings.
Tropeano gave it his best shot while making a last-minute start. The right-hander was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Friday's game to replace the scheduled starter, Griffin Canning, who pitched in relief during Thursday's 16-inning marathon. Tropeano only allowed one home run in the outing, though it was a three-run shot by Renato Nunez to cap off an ugly six-run second inning. Although the Angels are in dire need of more arms, Tropeano's future status in the Angels' rotation has yet to be determined. Through three appearances, the right-hander owns a disappointing 9.88 ERA and 1.76 WHIP.
Tropeano has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake to start Friday's game against the Orioles, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Tropeano was rumored to be a candidate to take the hill Friday, and the Angels made the news official a few hours before first pitch. He hasn't found success through two appearances in the big leagues this season, surrendering eight runs (five homers) while fanning seven over 8.2 innings of work, though he'll aim to turn things around following his promotion.
Tropeano is the top candidate to start Friday against the Orioles, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Tropeano is the Angels' most rested starter on the 40-man roster following a 10-8 loss over 16 innings Thursday in which 10 different pitchers made appearances. The 28-year-old last started July 20 for Triple-A Salt Lake and allowed six runs in 3.2 innings. He is 1-3 with a 9.00 ERA in five starts since being demoted June 10. Parker Bridwell, who is scheduled to start Friday for Triple-A Salt Lake, is another option, but he is not on the 40-man roster.
Tropeano was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.
Tropeano's most recent stint with the big club lasted just one day, with the right-hander returning to the minors after allowing five runs on seven hits (three homers) in 3.2 innings of relief Sunday against Seattle. Jake Jewell was recalled from Salt Lake in a corresponding move.
The Angels recalled Tropeano from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.
Though he's mostly worked as a starter in parts of four seasons with the Angels, Tropeano will be on hand in a long-relief role initially as he moves back to the big club. He'll provide a fresh arm behind Sunday's starter, Jose Suarez, who could have a short leash as he makes his way up from Triple-A. Over six outings with Salt Lake spanning 28.1 innings, Tropeano posted a 6.67 ERA and 1.53 WHIP.
Tropeano was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Tropeano is unavailable for a few days after firing five innings as the bulk reliever Tuesday, so the Angels opted to swap him out for a fresh arm in Jake Jewell. The 28-year-old Tropeano allowed three runs while striking out four in his 2019 big-league debut Tuesday, so he should get another chance with the Angels when another opportunity arises.
Tropeano pitched five innings, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four as the primary pitcher in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Athletics.
It was the first major-league appearance of the season for Tropeano, and he was able to keep things even, keeping the door open for the Angels to eventually win on a two-run single by Shohei Ohtani in the ninth inning. Tropeano's role with the Angels is not currently defined, but he's most likely to serve in long relief.
Tropeano was officially recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake prior to Tuesday's game at Oakland.
Tropeano joins the Angels and will serve as the primary pitcher Tuesday behind opener Cam Bedrosian. The 28-year-old struggled over five starts with Salt Lake this season, posting a 7.66 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 21:7 K:BB through 22.1 innings.
Tropeano will be used as the bulk reliever for Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Tropeano was initially expected to start the contest, but the Angels have since decided to use an opener before calling on the right-hander. Los Angeles has yet to announce who will serve as the opener.
Tropeano will be promoted for his season debut Tuesday against Oakland, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Tropeano owns a respectable 4.15 ERA in 38 starts and one relief appearance at the big-league level, but he struggled to a 4.74 mark in 14 starts last season. He's been even worse through five starts at Triple-A Salt Lake this year, posting a 7.66 ERA.
Tropeano (shoulder) was activated and optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.
Tropeano has battled the shoulder injury since August of last season and could eventually serve as depth in the Angels rotation. However, with the debut of Griffin Canning and recent return of Tyler Skaggs, he may struggle to carve out a significant and consistent role.
Tropeano (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
A shoulder injury ended Tropeano's 2018 campaign in August, and a setback delayed his start to this season. He could eventually push for starts with the Angels, but his 4.74 ERA in 14 starts last season doesn't make him particularly likely to carve out a large role.
Tropeano (shoulder) will head to the Angels' spring-training facility in Arizona on Sunday to begin throwing simulated games, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
With Tropeano's right shoulder having responded well to approximately five or six bullpen sessions, he'll move on to the next phase of his rehab by facing hitters in a controlled setting. The 28-year-old will build up to around six innings in simulated games before heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment, likely at some point in the second half of April. If health prevails and he fares well in the minors, Tropeano could make a case for a spot in the big-league rotation.
Tropeano (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
This was expected, as Tropeano has been behind schedule all spring after suffering a setback in his recovery from a shoulder injury in February. The right-hander recently resumed mound work, but remains without a timetable for his return.
Tropeano (shoulder) has increased his throwing distance off flat ground to 180 feet this week, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
With Tropeano's shoulder apparently responding well to the long-toss sessions, he said he'll be ready to take the mound Tuesday for an all-fastball bullpen session. Since he still hasn't faced hitters this spring, Tropeano is likely on track to join Andrew Heaney (elbow) on the Angels' injured list to begin the season. Those expected absences will pave the way for two of Jaime Barria, Felix Pena and Dillon Peters to break camp as members of the rotation.
Tropeano (shoulder) threw from 100 feet Wednesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Tropeano isn't expected to be ready by Opening Day due to a setback in his recovery from a shoulder injury, but it seems like he's still making steady progress in his recovery program. The hope is that the right-hander can return to mound work in two-and-a-half weeks before getting back to game action in five weeks. Tropeano is also reportedly tweaking his mechanics a bit in an effort to prevent another setback from occurring.
Tropeano is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day after suffering a setback with his previous shoulder injury in December, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Tropeano missed the last two months of the 2018 season due to a shoulder injury, and it apparently isn't completely in the rearview mirror. The right-hander recently began light throwing, but he's now out of the running for a spot in the rotation to start the season. No word has come forth as to when the Angels expect him to be ready for regular duty, but more information will likely become available on that front once he gets back to mound work.
Tropeano signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Angels on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Tropeano started 14 games in 2018, posting a 4.74 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with a 64:31 K:BB across 76 frames. Although he should be ready to go by Opening Day, Tropeano may be limited at the beginning of spring training due to a shoulder injury suffered last year.
Tropeano (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.
Tropeano received a PRP injection in his shoulder last week and was already finished for the season, so this was just a procedural move to open up a spot on the 40-man roster. How the shoulder responds to the injection will help determine whether the 28-year-old requires surgery to address the right shoulder inflammation he's been battling since early August.
