Tropeano signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Tuesday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The right-hander had a strong showing with the Pirates in 2020 with a 1.15 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 19:4 K:BB over 15.2 innings out of the bullpen, but he was still let go early in the offseason. Tropeano has primarily worked as a reliever over the past two seasons, but there's a chance the Giants could give him a look as a starter in spring training.
Tropeano was non-tendered by the Mets on Wednesday.
The journeyman righty was claimed earlier this offseason by the Mets, but it seems they would like to free up his roster spot. He gave up just two runs while striking out 19 in 15.2 innings for the Pirates last season.
Tropeano was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Friday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
Tropeano was waived by the Pirates despite posting a strong 1.15 ERA in 15.2 innings of relief this season. That performance came with strong underlying numbers, including a 28.8 percent strikeout rate and a 6.1 percent walk rate. He should have a shot at a medium-leverage role in New York, though he's not particularly likely to pick up his first career save.
Tropeano (1-0) picked up the win against the Brewers on Sunday, allowing two hits and two walks across 2.2 scoreless innings. He struck out two.
Tropeano entered the game with the Pirates leading 4-1 in the fifth inning. Although he allowed at least one baserunner in each frame he pitched, the right-hander was able to keep Milwaukee off the board. Tropeano has now fanned six across 6.2 innings since being recalled Aug. 23.
Tropeano tossed four scoreless innings in relief of Steven Brault on Tuesday versus the White Sox. Tropeano allowed three hits, walked none and struck out four.
Tropeano was making his first appearance with the Pirates after spending the last five years in the Angels organization. He pitched well opposite White Sox starter Lucas Giolito, who had a no-hitter Tuesday. Tropeano has primarily been used as a starter in his career, and it's possible he gets a turn in the rotation in the weekend series versus the Brewers. If it goes well, he could be in competition with Brault once Joe Musgrove (triceps) returns from the injured list.
Tropeano was recalled from the alternate training site Sunday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
The 30-year-old was claimed off waivers by Pittsburgh earlier in August, and he'll now make his way to the major-league roster. Most of Tropeano's big-league experience has come as a starter (4.51 ERA over 217.1 career innings), but the Pirates haven't indicated whether he'll be joining the rotation.
Tropeano was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Tuesday and optioned to the team's alternate training site, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Thirty-nine of Tropeano's 42 major-league appearances have been starts, and there's certainly a chance he adds to that total for a Pirates team that just lost Joe Musgrove to a triceps injury. The 29-year-old owns a respectable 4.51 ERA in 217.1 big-league innings.
Tropeano was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Saturday.
Tropeano was added to the active roster Thursday but didn't make any appearances during his stint in the majors. The right-hander's ERA has crept up over his past two MLB seasons as he carries a 5.52 ERA over 89.2 innings during that time. Right-hander Albert Abreu will serve as the 29th man out of the bullpen for Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.
Tropeano was signed by the Yankees to a major-league contract Thursday and is now on the active roster.
He had been in camp on a minor-league deal, but with Tommy Kahnle needing Tommy John surgery, the Yankees wanted to add a veteran pitcher. Tropeano has a 4.38 ERA in 207.2 innings as a starter and a 7.45 ERA in 9.2 innings as a reliever. He will likely be used in low-leverage spots.
Tropeano was reassigned to the Yankees' alternate training camp Tuesday.
The Yankees signed Tropeano to a minor-league deal in January and brought him along to summer camp, but he was never given much of a shot to make the major-league bullpen. The veteran right-hander pitched primarily at the Triple-A level last season.
Tropeano has been named a part of the Yankees' 60-man player pool.
The right-hander signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees in January and pitched 8.2 innings this spring before play was suspended, allowing five earned runs and compiling a 7:4 K:BB. The veteran is unlikely to open the season on the active big-league roster.
Tropeano signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Wednesday as a non-roster invitee, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Tropeano struggled with the Angels last season as he put together a 9.88 ERA with a 10:6 K:BB over 13.2 innings in the majors. He didn't fare much better with Triple-A Salt Lake, recording a 5.87 ERA with a 1.53 WHIP over 79.2 innings. He'll hope to turn things around in the Yankees' organization, but he'll have to demonstrate more control if he hopes to return to the majors in 2020.
Tropeano elected free agency Monday.
Tropeano exercised his right to refuse an assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake. After posting a 9.88 ERA in 13.2 major-league innings and a 5.87 mark in 79.2 frames at the Triple-A level, he'll likely be searching for a minor-league contract this offseason.
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.
