Athletics' Jake Buchanan: Assigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan was sent to minor-league camp Sunday, Jane Lee of reports.

Buchanan was dismissed from major-league camp after posting a 3.86 ERA with a strikeout over 2.1 frames. He hasn't appeared in the majors since the 2017 season with Cincinnati, and he's expected to begin his 2019 campaign with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Athletics' Jake Buchanan: Links up with Athletics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan signed a minor-league contract with the A's that includes an invitation to spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Buchanan spent the entire 2018 campaign with Triple-A Reno, struggling to a 5.17 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 86:47 K:BB across 156.2 innings. Look for him to serve as organizational pitching depth for the A's.

Diamondbacks' Jake Buchanan: Headed to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks reassigned Buchanan to their minor-league camp Friday, Owen Perkins of reports.

Buchanan made five appearances in the big leagues in 2017 for the pitching-bereft Reds, but the 8.16 ERA and 2.16 WHIP he posted over 14.1 innings made it highly unlikely that he would break camp with the Diamondbacks regardless of how well he pitched in spring training. The 28-year-old right-hander is expected to begin the upcoming campaign at Triple-A Reno and could swing between starting and long-relief duties.

Diamondbacks' Jake Buchanan: Re-ups with D-backs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks.

The 28-year-old righty spent 2017 with the Reds' and Cubs' organizations, and finished the campaign with the Diamondbacks' operation. Buchanan has a 4.73 ERA and just 33 strikeouts in 64.2 MLB innings. He will be assigned to Triple-A Reno, where he logged a 4.26 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 38 strikeouts in 61.1 innings (11 starts) last season.

Diamondbacks' Jake Buchanan: Settling into rotation role at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan, who signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on July 6, has a 3.72 ERA and 0.98 WHIP over 9.2 innings in two starts with Triple-A Reno.

Buchanan is pitching with his fourth different team and third different organization of the season, following previous stints with the Cubs and Reds. It appears the well-traveled right-hander will function as starting depth at Triple-A unless injuries thin the ranks at the big-league level, but even in that scenario, Buchanan likely wouldn't be first in line for a promotion. As a non-40-man-roster player, Buchanan would probably find himself behind at least Randall Delgado and Anthony Banda in the pecking order.

Jake Buchanan: Clears waivers, elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan cleared waivers and elected free agency Thursday.

Buchanan struggled out of the Reds' bullpen before being cut loose, compiling an ugly 8.16 ERA, 2.16 WHIP and 4:7 K:BB ratio through 14.1 innings. He'll likely be able to catch on elsewhere given his previous big-league experience.

Reds' Jake Buchanan: DFA'd on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan was designated for assignment by the Reds on Tuesday.

Buchanan was DFA'd for the second time in a month after struggling out of the Reds' bullpen; he allowed 13 runs on 24 hits with a 4:7 K:BB through 14.1 innings before being cut loose. He'll likely report back to Louisville if the Reds are able to pass him through waivers untouched.

Reds' Jake Buchanan: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

Buchanan's demotion clears a spot on the active roster for third catcher Stuart Turner (hamstring), who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move. The right-hander was roughed up in five relief appearances with the big club, surrendering 13 runs on 24 hits and seven walks over 14.1 innings.

Reds' Jake Buchanan: May fill void in MLB rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan may be summoned to the big leagues to make a spot start in place of Amir Garrett (hip), Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

With Thursday's rainout, it would seem like the turn in question would come around on Monday against the Blue Jays, although more information on this front should come forth over the weekend. Asher Wojciechowski is another candidate to fill the void, although Buchanan boasts more past success as a member of a big-league pitching staff.

May 25, 2017 01:56 PM
Reds' Jake Buchanan: Claimed by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds claimed Buchanan off waivers from the Cubs on Thursday.

The Cubs designated the right-hander for assignment Monday after posting a 4.75 ERA in 41.2 frames with Triple-A Iowa. Buchanan probably will report to Triple-A Louisville unless Cincinnati needs him on the big-league roster.

May 23, 2017 05:08 PM
Cubs' Jake Buchanan: DFA'd Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Monday.

The move was made to make room on the roster for Zac Rosscup, who had his contract purchased earlier Monday. Buchanan had a 4.75 ERA and 29:19 K:BB through 41.2 innings (eight starts) with Triple-A Iowa before being ousted from the Cubs' 40-man. He's got some major-league experience under his belt, so he could draw some interest on waivers; otherwise, he'll likely report back to Iowa.

Cubs' Jake Buchanan: Heads to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan was placed on the 7-day disabled list Saturday.

It's unclear what's ailing Buchanan, but he was replaced on the Triple-A roster by WIlliams Perez. Buchanan should slot back into Iowa's rotation when he returns.

March 23, 2017 03:28 PM
Cubs' Jake Buchanan: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports.

This isn't too surprising, as Buchanan accumulated a 7.65 ERA across 8.1 innings this spring. The Cubs are simply too deep in the bullpen, so the 27-year-old should see most, if not all, of his time at Triple-A Iowa in 2017.

Cubs' Jake Buchanan: Struggles against Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan (illness) gave up four runs in two innings of work his last time out, allowing six hits while striking out two batters against the Brewers.

Buchanan is now sporting a 7.56 ERA across 8.1 innings through spring. With the Cubs' offseason bullpen acquisitions, it seems Buchanan will spend the year in Triple-A, although he could see some major league innings if injuries take a toll on Chicago's bullpen.

Cubs' Jake Buchanan: Dealing with arm contusion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan was hit with a line drive Monday and is dealing with a bruise on his upper right arm, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

This is the best-case scenario for Buchanan, who had to be removed after being hit with a comebacker. The bruise is on his throwing shoulder, so he could be held out slightly longer than expected, but he should be back within the week. He'll be considered day-to-day until the Cubs specify otherwise.

Cubs' Jake Buchanan: Leaves game after being hit by line drive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan exited Monday's game after being hit in the arm with a line drive, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The severity of the injury is not yet known and it's unclear how long Buchanan will be held out, so consider him day-to-day until the Cubs release more about his status.

Cubs' Jake Buchanan: Stellar in Friday spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan (1-0) fired five innings of scoreless, two-hit ball in Friday's 7-3 victory over the Reds, walking one and striking out three.

The 27-year-old excelled in what was only his third major league start, filling in admirably for Jason Hammel (elbow). Buchanan's only other 2016 appearance at the big league level was against the Brewers on Sept. 5, when he'd worked an inning out of the bullpen in a 7-2 Cubs victory. He wraps up his first season in the Chicago organization with a 12-8 record at the Triple-A level.

September 29, 2016 10:02 PM
Cubs' Jake Buchanan: Named Friday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan will start Friday against the Reds, Carrie Muskat of reports.

Jason Hammel was scratched with an elbow issue and Buchanan will step in for his third career start at the major league level (first since 2014). The 27-year-old right-hander has made just one appearance since his September callup and that was all the way back on Sept. 5, when he threw one inning (16 pitches) against Milwaukee. It will likely amount to a bullpen game for Chicago.

September 1, 2016 04:36 PM
Cubs' Jake Buchanan: Added to major league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan was added to the major league roster Thursday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

With rosters expanding, the Cubs will bring Buchanan up for his first trip to the majors of the season. Buchanan, who was claimed off waivers from Houston in March, has amassed a 4.34 ERA and 1.36 WHIP across 24 appearances (22 starts) at Triple-A in 2016.

Astros' Jake Buchanan: Released by Astros, signed to minor league deal with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan was released by the Astros on Thursday and subsequently signed a minor league deal with the Cubs, Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Two days after being reassigned to minor league camp, the Astros opted to release the 26-year-old right-hander. He has some major league experience, primarily working out of the bullpen with the Astros. He owns a career 4.06 ERA and 1.40 WHIP across 44.1 innings. Buchanan has starting experience as well, so the Cubs can use him in that capacity or in a relief role wherever they assign him.
