Andriese is a strong candidate to open the season in the Angels' roatation, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Andriese was already being looked at as a starter before it was revealed that Griffin Canning (elbow) would likely begin the season on the injured list. That opens the No. 4 spot in the rotation, which is likely to go to Andriese in light of his solid spring (one earned run and six strikeouts in nine innings). Though the right-hander has been a starter for much of his career, 90 of his last 95 appearances have come out of the bullpen.
Andriese will come to camp as a starting pitcher following his trade to the Angels on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
The 30-year-old owns a career 4.64 ERA in 49 starts. In 2019 for the Diamondbacks, his first season spent entirely in the bullpen, he posted a mediocre 4.71 ERA. Moving to the rotation would give him a better shot at fantasy relevance than a middle-relief role would, though the fact that he'll enter camp as a starter doesn't guarantee that he'll enter the regular season as one.
Andriese was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Angels on Tuesday in exchange for Jeremy Beasley, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Andriese appeared in 54 games for the Diamondbacks last year as he operated out of the bullpen for the full season. The right-hander recorded a 4.71 ERA with a 79:27 K:BB over 70.2 innings while working mainly lower-leverage situations. The Angels' bullpen lacks experience, so it's possible Andriese could receive some consideration in more high-leverage situations if he can continue to develop. He also may be in line for a back-end starter's job.
Andriese avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1,395,000 deal with Arizona on Friday, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Andriese served as a full-time reliever for the first time last season, posting an unimpressive 4.71 ERA in 70.2 innings. He did at least post career highs in strikeout rate (25.5 percent) and groundball rate (50.3 percent), but he's unlikely to pitch in a fantasy-relevant role this season.
Andriese (foot) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list prior to Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
He has been on the shelf since July 19 with a bruised foot. Andriese has a 5.91 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 51 strikeouts in 45.2 innings. Look for him to return to a low-to-mid-leverage role.
Andriese (foot) threw a second bullpen session Monday since landing on the injured list, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Andriese was placed on the IL on July 20 with a left foot contusion. A former starter for Tampa Bay, Andriese has worked out of the bullpen for the Diamondbacks. There's a possibility Arizona could build up his innings to start if it trades any current members of the rotation, such as Zack Greinke and/or Robbie Ray, at the deadline.
Andriese landed on the 10-day injured list with a left foot contusion Saturday.
Andriese owns a poor 5.91 ERA in 45.2 innings this season. His peripherals are respectable, though, as his 9.7 percent walk rate isn't terrible and both his 24.8 percent strikeout rate and 50.8 percent groundball rate are better than average. It's not yet clear how much time he's expected to miss. Stefan Crichton was recalled in a corresponding move.
Andriese will not be promoted to the starting rotation, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
The Diamondbacks are considering replacing Zack Godley in the rotation, but manager Torey Lovullo is loathe to remove Andriese from his role in the bullpen. "He hasn't really entered the equation for me because he's been throwing the ball exceptionally well out of the bullpen, and I don't want to disrupt that," Lovullo said. "At this point in time, we're going to keep him where he's at and let him continue helping us win games in that area." Andriese has been Arizona's long man out of the 'pen, pitching 18.2 innings over 10 appearances.
Andriese allowed three hits and one walk while striking out three over three innings to earn his first save in Friday's 8-3 win over the Cubs.
Andriese, a former starter, has been filling a long-relief role for the Diamondbacks. Seven of his nine appearances have lasted at least two innings. The right-hander is 3-0 with an 18:8 K:BB over 16.2 innings.
Andriese (2-0) allowed one hit and struck out two over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Rangers.
Andriese, who's pitched multiple innings in all three of his appearances, was the pitcher of record when the Diamondbacks put up a three-spot in the bottom of the ninth in a come-from-behind victory. It's the second time Andriese has picked up the "W" when Arizona rallied for a late-inning win. The Diamondbacks rank sixth in MLB with 1.91 runs scored per game over the final three innings.
Andriese (1-0) picked up the win in Friday's 5-4 extra-innings victory over the Dodgers, walking four batters in 2.1 scoreless innings.
He nearly blew the game in the 10th inning -- entering with a runner on first and two outs, Andriese loaded the bases on a wild pitch, a HBP and a walk before making a great defensive play to snag an A.J. Pollock comebacker and escape the jam -- but the right-hander suffered no damage from his control issues and was rewarded when Carson Kelly's double in the top of the 13th broke a 4-4 tie. Andriese is used to his current long-relief role from his time in Tampa Bay, but from a fantasy perspective offers little other than iffy ratios and bulk strikeouts.
Andriese allowed four runs on five hits while striking out six over 4.1 innings Wednesday against the Rockies.
Andriese got batted around a bit, but had swing-and-miss stuff. He threw 39 of 59 pitches for strikes. The right-hander is being stretched out this spring, throwing 11.2 innings over four appearances (two starts, two relief), and is expected to be a swingman/long reliever in 2019.
Andriese agreed to a one-year deal with the Diamondbacks, avoiding arbitration.
The 29-year-old righty debuted in 2015, but this was his first offseason as an arbitration-eligible player. He figures to work as a long reliever and swing man for the Diamondbacks in 2019. Andriese will hit the open market in 2022.
Andriese is expected to move back to the bullpen during the upcoming week with Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo naming Matt Koch the team's starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Andriese received the first opportunity to enter the rotation in place of Clay Buchholz (elbow), who sustained a season-ending injury Sept. 13. The right-hander's first start with the Diamondbacks was disastrous, as he lasted just two innings while giving up five runs on five hits to take the loss Sept. 18 against the Cubs. Koch, meanwhile, shined in long relief behind Andriese with four scoreless innings, so he'll get a look in the fifth starter's role during the final week of the season.
Andriese (0-2) got the loss Tuesday, allowing five runs on five hits while striking out four over two innings against the Cubs.
Andriese was hit hard, allowing two home runs and two doubles in the brief outing. The 29-year-old was filling in the rotation spot of the injured Clay Buchholz (elbow), but it's unclear if he'll keep that spot the remainder of the season or slide back into a bullpen role. Since joining Arizona, the 29-year-old has a bloated 9.00 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over 13 appearances (one start).
Andriese will start Tuesday against the Cubs.
Andriese will enter the rotation in place of Clay Buchholz, who was ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering an elbow injury. The right-hander has made four starts this season, but he's been working in relief since joining the Diamondbacks at the end of July, so he likely won't throw more than a few innings in Tuesday's spot start. It's unclear if Andriese will stick in the rotation after Tuesday or if he'll return to the bullpen, though that could depend on how he fares. He owns a 4.76 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 59:18 K:BB across 59.2 big-league innings this season.
Andriese was torched for seven runs on eight hits and two walks over 1.1 innings of relief in Monday's 13-2 loss to the Rockies.
The seven earned runs were one more than Andriese had allowed in his last 12 appearances combined and resulted in his season ERA jumping from 3.99 to 4.76. The right-hander is likely to serve as an innings eater out of the bullpen for the remainder of the season, but don't expect him to see much duty in high-leverage spots even while the Diamondbacks' late-inning situation remains unsettled for the moment.
Andriese was recalled from High-A Visalia on Tuesday.
Andriese is back with the Diamondbacks after making one appearance for the Rawhide, striking out five across 3.2 innings. There had been talk of stretching Andriese out to start, but he threw only 62 pitches in that aforementioned outing, so he may be limited to a long-relief role down the stretch. Andriese has a 4.09 ERA and 73:21 K:BB across 72.2 big-league innings this season.
Andriese, who was optioned to High-A Visalia on Tuesday, will be stretched out as a starter while he remains in the minors, Martin Oppegaard of MLB.com reports.
The rotation has been a strength for the Diamondbacks this season, but the team doesn't have much in the way of depth behind its current five starters with Taijuan Walker (elbow) out for the season and Shelby Miller (elbow) facing a hazy timeline to return from the disabled list. With that in mind, Andriese, who made 38 starts with the Rays across the last two seasons before transitioning to the bullpen in 2018, will at least provide some decent insurance if Arizona loses another rotation member to an injury. Since Andriese hasn't tossed more than 58 pitches in any of his appearances, he'll likely require at least two outings in the minors before he's ready to handle a starter's workload. If the Diamondbacks' top five rotation options all remain healthy by the time he's ready to return to the big leagues, however, Andriese would presumably reprise a bullpen role.
Andriese was optioned to High-A Visalia on Tuesday.
There's no obvious reason why Andriese was sent all the way down to High-A. Regardless of why he was sent there rather than Triple-A, his stay in the minors is likely to be short, as he has a perfectly adequate 4.09 ERA in 72.2 innings this season, leaving him a likely candidate for a callup when rosters expand in September. Christian Walker was recalled from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.
