Sam Gaviglio: Heading to Korea
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio is expected to sign with the KBO's SSG Landers, Hong Ji-soo of Naver Sports reports.

Gaviglio owns a 4.88 ERA in 296.2 career MLB innings. He failed to win a roster spot with the Rangers this spring and had been pitching for Triple-A Round Rock, but he'll now head overseas in search of new opportunities.

Rangers' Sam Gaviglio: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio was reassigned to minor-league camp Thursday.

Gaviglio served as a non-roster invitee over the first few weeks of spring training and made four Cactus League appearances. During that time, he allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out three over 4.2 innings. The right-hander will likely begin the regular season with Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers' Sam Gaviglio: Lands with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio joined the Rangers as a non-roster invitee Monday.

Gaviglio threw just three innings for the Blue Jays last season, walking five batters and allowing three runs. In 296.2 total innings at the highest level, he owns a 4.88 ERA, a mark that could earn him at least a low-leverage relief role if he looks good in camp.

Sam Gaviglio: Heads to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio cleared waivers Friday and was released by the Blue Jays.

Gaviglio made four appearances for the Blue Jays this season, allowing three runs across three innings while walking five and striking out just one. The 30-year-old now owns a 4.88 ERA in 296.2 career big-league innings.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Loses 40-man spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays designated Gaviglio for assignment Monday.

Toronto dropped Gaviglio and infielder Brandon Drury from its 40-man roster to clear space for pitcher Ross Stripling and infielder Jonathan Villar, both of whom were acquired prior to Monday's trade deadline. Gaviglio has served mostly as a low-leverage option out of the bullpen during multiple stints with the big club this season, giving up three runs on three hits and five walks over three innings.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Optioned by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio was optioned to the Blue Jays' alternate training site Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

Gaviglio was quite effective in his two appearances out of the bullpen since rejoining the major-league club, but he'll return to alternate camp. In his two most recent outings, he tossed two scoreless innings, allowing no hits and two walks while striking out zero. Derek Fisher (quadriceps) and Sean Reid-Foley were added to the active roster in corresponding moves.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Back with Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio was recalled by the Blue Jays on Friday.

Gaviglio has bounced between the big-league roster and the alternate training site throughout the season. He's made just two appearances, allowing three runs in one total inning of work. Jacob Waguespack was optioned in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Sent back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays optioned Gaviglio to their alternate training site Monday prior to the club's 7-2 win over the Orioles.

Since the Blue Jays and Rays resumed Saturday's suspended game Sunday before playing their scheduled game later that day, Gaviglio was able to join Toronto as a 29th man in advance of the latter contest. He went unused Sunday in the 7-5 loss in eight innings and was sent back to the alternate site Monday with Toronto needing to reduce its roster to 28 men ahead of its series opener with the Orioles.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Moves up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays recalled Gaviglio from their alternate training site ahead of Sunday's game against the Rays.

Gaviglio will be designated as the 29th man for the Blue Jays, who were awarded an extra player since Toronto and Tampa Bay had to resume Saturday's suspended game earlier in the day. He'll provide Toronto will some length out of the bullpen while he's up with the big club.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio was optioned to the Blue Jays' alternate training site Saturday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

Despite pitching just one inning over two appearances to begin the season, Gaviglio gave up three runs on three hits and three walks while striking out one. As a result, he'll lose his place in the major-league bullpen for now and attempt to turn things around at the alternate training site.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Role uncertain in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio's role in the bullpen remains unclear when the 2020 season finally begins.

Two years ago, the junk-balling right-hander started 24 games as the Jays were unable to scrounge up any better rotation options. Last season, the team kept Gaviglio in long relief despite numerous injuries to its starters. In both campaigns, keeping the ball in the park was his biggest issue -- he posted a HR/9 north of 1.5 both years. Gavigio was held to one-inning stints in camp this season before spring training was suspended, posting a 0.00 ERA and 3:0 K:BB through three frames, which suggests he could find himself in a low-leverage middle-relief role in 2020 after the organization significantly bolstered its rotation depth and long-relief options over the winter. Whatever his role, he'll need to improve on his career 4.84 ERA in the majors if he wants to remain in Toronto's plans beyond 2020.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Stuck with loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio (4-2) allowed three runs on a hit and three walks Friday, striking out one in two-thirds of an inning. He took the loss as the Blue Jays fell 7-4 to the Mariners.

Gaviglio got into trouble in the sixth inning as he loaded the bases and walked Kyle Seager to being one run around, and then Tim Mayza allowed a pair of inherited runners to score after Gaviglio got the hook. The reliever now owns a 4.82 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with 72 strikeouts over 80.1 innings this year while working mainly in low-leverage situations that keep him off the radar of most fantasy GMs.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Stuck in low-leverage role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio has a 5.27 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 23:6 K:BB through 27.1 innings since the beginning of June.

The right-hander is acting as a long reliever for the Jays, and while the role does get him regular work due to the shaky nature of the team's rotation, Gaviglio isn't exactly thriving in it. Unless he can start pitching better and find his way into a higher-leverage spot in the pecking order, he'll remain a fantasy afterthought.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Struggles continue Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio was charged with two runs on six hits and a walk over 3.2 innings during Saturday's 8-7 win at Boston. He had one strikeout and did not factor in the decision.

Gaviglio entered with one out and a runner on first base in the second inning, and he was unable to prevent further damage after issuing a walk and giving up a two-run double. All things considered, the 29-year-old did well to only get charged with two runs after allowing six hits, including three extra-base knocks. Gaviglio has struggled mightily over his last 11 appearances with 20 runs allowed -- including nine homers -- across 21.1 innings.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Slated for primary pitcher role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays will deploy Gaviglio as their primary pitcher in Saturday's game against the Red Sox, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

Considering Gaviglio was last used out of the bullpen four days ago, he should be well rested and available for around 3-to-4 innings or 40-to-50 pitches. After turning in a 1.76 ERA, 0.65 WHIP and 30:4 K:BB through his first 15 appearances of the season, Gaviglio has fallen on hard times lately. He's given up at least one run in all but one of his last nine outings, posting a 9.17 ERA and 1.75 WHIP during that stretch.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Picks up fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio (4-1) walked one and struck out three over two scoreless innings of relief Wednesday to record the win over the Yankees.

The right-hander has been in a serious tailspin lately, allowing at least one run in five straight appearances and seven of his last eight coming into Wednesday, but Gaviglio was able to get the job done. Homers have been the problem -- he was taken deep eight times in 14 innings, leaving him with a 9.64 ERA over that rough stretch -- and given his career 1.78 HR/9, that's likely to be an issue for him straight through the summer. Gaviglio's 4.05 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 40:7 K:BB through 40 innings this season have provided him with some surprising deep-league fantasy value, but he's a risky play going forward.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Gets win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio (3-0) picked up the win in Friday's 10-2 victory over the White Sox, giving up a hit and a walk over three scoreless innings of relief while striking out one.

Aaron Sanchez was forced from the game after three innings due to yet another blister, handing an easy win to Gaviglio after he entered the game with the Jays already up 9-2. The right-hander now has a sparkling 1,76 ERA and 30:4 K:BB through 30.2 innings over 15 appearances, giving him fantasy value in deeper AL-only formats despite his typically lower-leverage role.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Punches out three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out three over 2.2 innings Friday against the White Sox to record his second hold of the season.

Gaviglio took care of the bulk of the innings Friday evening after the Blue Jays elected to open the ballgame with Daniel Hudson. Gaviglio did give up a solo homer in the fifth, but he would exit with a two-run lead. The 28-year-old reliever has been stellar so far in 2019 and owns a 1.95 ERA with 29 punchouts over 27.2 frames.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Outstanding relief effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio (2-0) picked up the win Saturday, tossing four perfect innings of relief while striking out five in a 10-1 victory over the A's.

He entered the game after Matt Shoemaker injured his knee in a rundown getting the final out of the third inning, and Gaviglio was simply brilliant in shutting down Oakland's offense. The right-hander now sports a 1.20 ERA and 16:2 K:BB through 15 innings. He could be a candidate to move into the rotation should Shoemaker miss a significant amount of time, but Gaviglio's best chance for improved fantasy value might come if the Jays employ a bullpen day to cover for Shoemaker's absence, with Gaviglio filling the primary role after the opener.

Blue Jays' Sam Gaviglio: Vultures win in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaviglio (1-0) gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning of relief to pick up the win Monday over the Twins.

The 28-year-old has looked good in a long-relief role so far, posting a 1.64 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB through 11 innings over six appearances. Gaviglio's fantasy value is limited by his usage, but after struggling in the rotation last year, he seems to have found his niche on the Jays' staff.
