Carlos Frias: Cut loose by Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was released by the Indians on Wednesday.

Frias spent all of the 2017 season with Triple-A Columbus, posting a brutal 8.05 ERA and 21:22 K:BB across 38 innings of work. He'll look to catch on elsewhere as organizational pitching depth.

Indians' Carlos Frias: Inks minor-league deal with Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias signed a minor-league contract with the Indians on Tuesday.

Frias is back with the Indians after spending all of last season with the team's Triple-A affiliate in Columbus. The 28-year-old made 30 appearances for Columbus in 2017, posting an unsightly 8.05 ERA and 21:22 K:BB across 38 innings. He'll report to minor-league camp and should serve as organizational bullpen depth for the Indians in 2018.

Indians' Carlos Frias: Back from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias (finger) was activated from the 7-day disabled list Wednesday.

Frias is back with Triple-A Columbus after a brief stay on the shelf due to a blister. The 27-year-old, who owns a 7.79 ERA through 34.2 innings with Columbus this season, will return to serving as organizational pitching depth now that he's healthy.

Indians' Carlos Frias: Lands on DL with blister
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was placed on the DL by Triple-A Columbus after sustaining a blister over the weekend, Tribe Insider reports.

Frias has had a rough year, including going unclaimed after being DFA'd in May. He's appeared in 33 MLB games (all with the Dodgers), but it appears his chances at the big leagues have all but expired at age 27.

Indians' Carlos Frias: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias cleared through waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.

Frias was designated for assignment Tuesday in order to open up a 40-man roster spot for Bradley Zimmer. No other clubs showed interest in the hurler, so he'll rejoin the Triple-A squad.

Indians' Carlos Frias: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was designated for assignment on Tuesday.

The Indians made five total roster moves and needed to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Bradley Zimmer, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A. Frias has a 9.00 ERA in 17 innings at Triple-A and should pass through waivers.

Indians' Carlos Frias: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday.

Frias put together a decent spring and came close to making the big-league roster. The righty logged a 3.86 ERA over seven Cactus League innings, but racked up a 1.43 WHIP while opposing hitters owned a .310 BAA. He'll likely see some action with the Indians when the need for bullpen help arises.

Indians' Carlos Frias: On cusp of making 25-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias could make the club as an eighth reliever if starter Carlos Carrasco opens the season on the disabled list, Ross D. Franklin of the Associated Press reports.

The Jays acquired the right-hander from the Dodgers in an offseason trade, but it's a bit surprising that Frias has made it to the finish line of big-league camp. After two unnoticeable seasons (2014-15) on the west coast, the 27-year-old was hurt in the latter half of 2016 before the Dodgers dumped him. Cleveland may choose to enter Opening Day with an overloaded bullpen, as the team won't need a fifth starter until mid-April. Even if that's the case and Frias makes the team, he won't have fantasy appeal unless he can work his way into a bigger role.

Indians' Carlos Frias: Among crowded field for final bullpen spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias is one of 20 pitchers in camp vying for the lone bullpen spot remaining on the team's 25-man roster, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

Frias may be the underdog in the competition, but he brings an appealing ability to fill a long-relief role while being able to handle the occasional spot start when needed. Although the numbers may be underwhelming, 15 of Frias' 33 MLB outings have come as a starter, so he is capable of playing the part when the Indians are in a bind. He'll need an extraordinary spring to make the Opening Day roster, but even if Frias manages to do so, the right-hander doesn't bring fantasy appeal in most formats.

Indians' Carlos Frias: Traded to Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was traded from the Dodgers to the Indians on Monday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

The righty was designated for assignment by the Dodgers last week, so this trade doesn't come as too much of a surprise. Over parts of the last three seasons, Frias logged a 4.50 ERA in 114 innings with the big league club, although he also spent time in the minors. After an injury forced him to miss the second half of 2016, he will look to bounce back and compete for a bullpen spot with the Indians in 2017. Richie Shaffer was designated for assignment to open up a 40-man roster spot for Frias.

Dodgers' Carlos Frias: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Wednesday.

A spot was needed for outfielder Brett Eibner, whom the Dodgers acquired in a trade with Oakland, and Frias was the roster casualty. Frias turned in respectable numbers in 10 appearances between Double-A and Triple-A last season but an injury put him on the shelf for the entire second half. Now 27, Frias has posted a 4.58 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, 10.5 H/9, 2.2 BB/9 and 6.7 K/9 in parts of three seasons at the Triple-A level (149.1 innings).

Dodgers' Carlos Frias: Recalled, placed on 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday and placed on the 60-day DL.

This amounts to nothing more than a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. Frias had been on the DL at Oklahoma City since mid-July and will not pitch again this season.

Dodgers' Carlos Frias: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The right-hander was sent packing a day after his arrival from Oklahoma City, with the Dodgers deciding to go back to a four-man bench. Frias has made six starts in the minors this season (10 total appearances) but it's hard to imagine he'll be anything more than a spot-start option for the big club in the second half.

Dodgers' Carlos Frias: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.

The Dodgers' bullpen was in need of a fresh bullpen arm after using eight relievers in Wednesday's 14-inning contest. Frias, a right-hander, has not made an outing in the majors this season, but he did notch a 4.06 ERA across 17 relief appearances in 2015.

Dodgers' Carlos Frias: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City as the Dodgers reinstated Yasiel Puig from the disabled list.

Frias was called up to the majors on Sunday and looked to be in line to fill a rotation spot for the Dodgers. However, it looks like the they have decided to go another direction and Frias will head back to Oklahoma City. The right-hander owns a 4.60 ERA in 31.3 innings at Triple-A.

Dodgers' Carlos Frias: Could start Friday against Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias threw a bullpen session Monday and is an option to start Friday against the Pirates, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

The Dodgers' fifth rotation spot is up in the air now that Mike Bolsinger has lost the job. The bullpen session is not normal for relief pitchers, so it would make sense that Frias, called up Sunday, would slide into that spot. He posted a 4.06 ERA in 77.2 innings last year but struggled to miss bats, as he struck out just 43 batters (5.0 K/9).

Dodgers' Carlos Frias: Called up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Frias has a 1-3 record with a 5.55 ERA at Oklahoma City this year, but the Dodgers determined that it would be better to roll with the 6-foot-4 right-hander than the current option, Mike Bolsinger. The Dodgers won't need another starter until next Thursday, where Frias would be lined up to square off against Jameson Taillon in Pittsburgh.

Dodgers' Carlos Frias: Moving up to Triple-A for next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias will start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, David Vassegh of 570 AM LA Sports radio reports.

After losing out on the No. 5 starter job to Ross Stripling in spring training, Frias reported to Oklahoma City, but he suffered an oblique injury before ever taking the mound in a game. The Dodgers sent him to Double-A Tulsa to knock some rust off after Frias was cleared to pitch -- have up just one run on three hits while striking out five over seven innings in his two starts for Tulsa. He could end up making a couple spot starts for the Dodgers down the road, but it's hard to imagine he'll claim a full-time rotation spot.

Dodgers' Carlos Frias: Makes season debut Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Frias (oblique) will make his season debut Thursday with Double-A Tulsa, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

Frias was on the disabled list to begin the season due to an oblique issue, but it appears he's back to full strength. If he sees some success in the Double-A rotation, there's a decent chance he could be moved up the ranks quickly considering his substantial time in the big league rotation last season.
