Twins' Derek Law: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

Law had been on the 10-day injured list since July 17 due to a right shoulder impingement before being designated for assignment Sunday. He recently tossed three scoreless innings across two rehab appearances at Triple-A St. Paul, and he'll remain with the minor-league club after he went unclaimed on waivers.

Twins' Derek Law: DFA'd Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins designated Law for assignment Sunday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Law, who's been on the injured list since July 17 with a right shoulder impingement, loses his 40-man roster spot to allow for Luke Farrell's return from the 60-day IL. Law has been decent with a 4.20 ERA in 15 relief innings this season, but his injury makes him unlikely to get claimed on waivers in the next couple days.

Twins' Derek Law: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins placed Law on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right shoulder impingement, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Law allowed one run in 8.2 innings after rejoining the Twins on July 1. Overall in 2021, the righty has pitched 15 innings with the big-league club and posted a 4.20 ERA. It's unclear how long Law will be sidelined.

Twins' Derek Law: Called up by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law's contract was selected by the Twins on Thursday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Law was cast off the 40-man roster and outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul in mid-May, and he's posted a 4.61 ERA in 13.2 innings with the minor-league club this year. He's recorded an 8.53 ERA and 2.68 WHIP in 6.1 innings across five appearances with the Twins in 2021, and he should serve mainly as a low-leverage reliever after right-hander Matt Shoemaker was designated for assignment.

Twins' Derek Law: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

The 30-year-old was designated for assignment by the Twins earlier in the week, but he'll remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. Law has appeared in five games for Minnesota this season and has given up six runs on 11 hits with nine strikeouts and six walks over 6.1 innings.

Twins' Derek Law: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins designated Law for assignment Tuesday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

The move comes a day after a miserable relief outing Monday in which Law allowed four runs on five hits in 1.1 innings. The righty posted an 8.53 ERA in five appearances after being called up May 8.

Twins' Derek Law: Contract selected by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law's contract was selected by the Twins on Saturday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Law failed to break camp with the major-league club this year, but he'll join Minnesota's bullpen as part of a shuffle after right-hander Cody Stashak was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul and Travis Blankenhorn was designated for assignment. Law allowed three hits and three walks while striking out 13 in eight scoreless innings this spring.

Twins' Derek Law: Fails to win job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law will not break camp in the big leagues, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Law threw eight scoreless innings this spring, striking out 13 batters while walking three and allowing three hits, but it wasn't enough earn him a roster spot. The fact that he's not on the 40-man roster certainly didn't help his case. He could be one of the team's top depth options this season, though the lack of a 40-man spot will hurt him there as well.

Twins' Derek Law: Contending for bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law has pitched well enough during Graperfruit League play to potentially garner an Opening Day bullpen spot, manager Rocco Baldelli told MLB.com. Law has thrown six scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts and one walk this spring.

Law would seem to be a longshot, but the Twins may have found a way to improve his mechanics. Law didn't receive a call-up to the majors at any point in 2020 after being included in the Rangers' 60-man player pool, but the reliever made 58 appearances for the Blue Jays in 2019, compiling a 4.90 ERA and 1.66 WHIP. He'd likely work in middle relief if he does make the final roster, but he would need to be added to the 40-man roster considering he was a non-roster invitee to spring training.

Twins' Derek Law: Reaches MiLB deal with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he agreed to a minor-league contract with the Twins that includes an invitation to big-league spring training.

According to Darren Wolfson of Channel 5 Saint Paul, Law's deal is worth $750,000 at the big-league level and contains an opt-out clause. Law didn't receive a call-up to the majors at any point in 2020 after being included in the Rangers' 60-man player pool, but the reliever made 58 appearances for the Blue Jays in 2019, compiling a 4.90 ERA and 1.66 WHIP.

Rangers' Derek Law: Headed to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law was assigned to the Rangers' alternate training site Sunday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Law worked as a non-roster invitee during summer camp, but he'll head to the team's alternate facility with less than a week remaining until Opening Day. The 29-year-old has some experience as a closer in the past and could be one of the team's top options to fill in if injuries pile up in the bullpen even though he isn't currently on the 40-man roster.

Rangers' Derek Law: Part of pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law was named to the Rangers' 60-man player pool Sunday.

Law, who is not on the 40-man roster, has 167 games of MLB experience over the last four seasons with the Giants and Blue Jays. He was used to close some games for Toronto when closer Ken Giles dealt with an elbow injury and was away on a paternity leave. Many relievers would need to be hurt for the Rangers to turn to Law as a closer, but his experience could make him one of the first callups should an injury hit the bullpen. The 29-year-old right-hander posted a 4.90 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 67:40 K:BB ratio over 60.2 innings in 2019.

Rangers' Derek Law: Joins Texas on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Thursday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The contract includes an invitation to spring training.

Law is headed south after being non-tendered by the Blue Jays in December. Across 58 appearances with Toronto in 2019, the righty posted a 4.90 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 67:40 K:BB in 60.2 innings. He'll compete for one of the Rangers' final bullpen spots during spring camp.

Derek Law: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law was non-tendered by the Blue Jays on Monday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Law registered five saves (one blown save) on the way to a 4.90 ERA and 1.66 WHIP with a 67:40 K:BB over 60.2 frames a season ago.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Records fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks in the ninth inning to earn the save Wednesday against the Orioles.

Law was called upon to protect a two-run lead in the ninth inning. He made things interesting by allowing four of the first five batters he faced to reach base prior to recording the final out with the bases loaded. He now has five saves on the season, though Ken Giles is still in place as the team's primary closer. That leaves Law with inconsistent save opportunities at best to close the season.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Notches five-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law pitched 1.2 innings Saturday, walking two and striking out two to earn the save in a 7-5 win over the Mariners.

It's Law's fourth save of the year, all of which have come in August. Over 11 appearances, the right-hander has pitched to a 2.08 ERA this month. For the year, Law has a 4.96 ERA and 1.55 WHIP with 56 strikeouts in 49 innings. It's expected Law will return to a setup role when Ken Giles returns from the paternity list.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Blows first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law (0-2) took the loss Thursday against the Dodgers, giving up three runs on three hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning to blow his first save of the season.

With Ken Giles on the paternity list, Law was back in the saddle as Toronto's closer but he couldn't get the job done, ruining a combined shutout bid and handing the Dodgers another walkoff win. The loss snapped the right-hander's 14-appearance scoreless streak, but on the year Law still has a 5.13 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 54:28 K:BB through 47.1 innings.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Records third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law allowed one hit and one walk but struck out two in a four-out save against the Yankees on Saturday.

The 28-year-old took the mound with two outs and nobody on during the eighth, and while he allowed a single to the first batter, he struck out the next hitter and faced the minimum in the ninth. Law is 0-1 with three saves, a 4.95 ERA, a 1.53 WHIP and 51 strikeouts in 43.2 innings this season.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Records second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law struck out one through 1.1 scoreless and hitless innings to record his second save in a 2-0 win over the Rays on Monday.

Law recorded the last out of the eighth inning and quickly set down the Rays in the ninth inning to nail down his second save. Although his overall numbers are not impressive, Law hasn't allowed a run in his last eight appearances. The 28-year-old has a 5.36 ERA with 48 strikeouts through 37 games this season.

Blue Jays' Derek Law: Gets emergency save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Law picked up his first save of the season in Friday's win over the Orioles, walking two batters and striking out one in two scoreless frames. He got the nod because Justin Shafer got sick mid-game and was unavailable to pitch, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.CA reports.

Law has been used as an opener and a middle-innings reliever, and his 5.54 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 47:23 K:BB hardly scream out as him having a closer's skill set, but with Ken Giles (elbow) sidelined it's any port in a storm for the Jays in the ninth.
