Angels' James Hoyt: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.

The veteran righty joined the big-league roster last week and gave up a run over 3.2 innings across three appearances. Hoyt has allowed a run on three hits with a 7:5 K:BB over 5.1 frames for the season, and he could rejoin the Angels later in the year.

Angels' James Hoyt: Recalled by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was recalled by the Angels on Monday.

Hoyt spent a brief period in the big leagues in early May, making a pair of scoreless relief appearances. He struggled to a 13.06 ERA in 10.1 innings for Triple-A Salt Lake but will be given another chance in the majors anyway, presumably in a low-leverage role. Hunter Strickland was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Angels' James Hoyt: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

The 34-year-old was recalled from the taxi squad over the weekend and delivered 1.2 scoreless innings during his brief time with the team. Hoyt could rejoin the Angels later in the season as the team rotates its bullpen pieces.

Angels' James Hoyt: Brought up from taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels recalled Hoyt from their taxi squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Mariners, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hoyt was summoned to the big club as a replacement in the bullpen for southpaw Tony Watson (calf), who was placed on the 10-day injured list. The 34-year-old righty's use will likely be limited to lower-leverage spots while he's up with the Halos.

Angels' James Hoyt: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was optioned to the Angels' alternate training site Tuesday.

The 34-year-old was acquired from the Marlins on Monday but won't make the Opening Day roster with his new team. Hoyt had a 1.23 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 20:8 K:BB over 14.2 innings (24 appearances) last season and should receive a big-league opportunity at some point in 2021.

Angels' James Hoyt: Sent to Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was traded from the Marlins to the Angels on Monday in exchange for cash considerations.

Hoyt didn't look to be in line to make the Opening Day roster with Miami, so this transaction appears to be a favorable one for the right-hander. He appeared in 24 games out of the bullpen for the Marlins a season ago, posting a 1.23 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with a 20:8 K:BB across 14.2 frames.

Marlins' James Hoyt: Not in projected bullpen mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt, who has a minor-league option remaining, isn't expected to make the Marlins' Opening Day roster, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.

The team needs to find room for two Rule 5 pickups in Zach Pop and Paul Campbell, which squeezes Hoyt off the roster. The right-hander did little to bolster his case for a bullpen spot with a 5:5 K:BB through 6.1 innings this spring, and despite his strikeout upside (career 11.8 K/9 in the majors), he'll have to bide his time at the Marlins' alternate site to begin the season.

Marlins' James Hoyt: Acquired by Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was traded from the Indians to the Marlins on Saturday in exchange for cash considerations.

The veteran right-hander was designated for assignment by Cleveland earlier in the week, and he'll now be making his way to Miami. Given the Marlins' search for players following the COVID-19 outbreak among the team's players and staff, Hoyt should be with the major-league club when it retakes the field. He appeared in eight games for the Indians last season and had a 2.16 ERA and 0.96 WHIP over 8.1 innings.

Indians' James Hoyt: DFA'd by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was designated for assignment by the Indians on Tuesday, Mandy Bell of reports.

The veteran right-hander was unable to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster, and he's now been removed from the 40-man roster. Hoyt appeared in eight games for Cleveland last season and allowed two runs on six hits and two walks while recording 10 strikeouts.

July 22, 2020 03:00 PM
Indians' James Hoyt: Heading to secondary site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was optioned to Cleveland's alternative training site Wednesday.

The 33-year-old seemingly had a shot to break camp in the big-league bullpen but will have to wait for his chance. In 80 career big-league innings, he owns a respectable 4.16 ERA and a strong 30.9 percent strikeout rate.

Indians' James Hoyt: Back with Tribe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt re-signed Wednesday with the Indians on a one-year contract.

The Tribe non-tendered Hoyt two days earlier, likely as a means of avoiding the hike in salary he would have been due in arbitration. He'll return to the 40-man roster at what's presumably a more club-friendly price, but that won't necessarily help the right-hander's chances of breaking camp with the big club. Hoyt spent the bulk of the 2019 campaign at Triple-A Columbus but performed well in his eight appearances with Cleveland, posting a 2.16 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 10:2 K:BB in 8.1 innings.

December 2, 2019 08:56 PM
James Hoyt: Fails to receive contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was non-tendered by the Indians on Monday, Tribeinsider reports.

Hoyt spent the majority of his 2019 season with Triple-A Columbus, posting a 3.43 ERA over 42 innings. He did toss 8.1 frames in the big leagues, allowing two runs while fanning 10.

December 2, 2019 11:40 AM
Indians' James Hoyt: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was designated for assignment by Cleveland on Monday.

Hoyt was removed from the 40-man roster to make room for Sandy Leon, acquired in a trade from the Red Sox in a corresponding move. Hoyt looked good in 8.1 innings in the majors last season, posting a 2.16 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP, though he's 33 years old and has just 80 innings under his belt at the highest level.

Indians' James Hoyt: Contract selected by Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt had his contract selected by the Indians on Sunday, Mandy Bell of reports.

Hoyt has spent the entirety of the 2019 campaign with Triple-A Columbus. He's racked up a 3.43 ERA and 1.57 WHIP with 48 strikeouts across 42 innings as a reliever and will close the season as depth in the bullpen for the big-league club.

Indians' James Hoyt: Sent to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt (knee/elbow) was moved to minor-league camp Monday.

Hoyt received a big-league camp invitation when he signed his minor-league deal back in December, but his stay on the major-league side wasn't particularly long. He is still recovering from offseason knee and elbow surgeries and hasn't thrown a pitch in a game this spring.

Indians' James Hoyt: Working back from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt (knee/elbow) has been throwing off the mound and facing hitters in live batting practice this spring but is without a timeline to make his Cactus League debut, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Hoyt is recovering from offseason right knee and right elbow procedures, prompting the Indians to take a slow approach with him this spring. After an injury-marred 2018 campaign in which he tossed just 29 innings between Triple-A and the majors, Hoyt isn't a serious candidate to win a spot in the Tribe's Opening Day bullpen. He'll likely be assigned to Triple-A Columbus once he's fully healthy.

December 2, 2018 02:12 PM
Indians' James Hoyt: Inks deal with Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt (knee) agreed to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training with Cleveland.

Hoyt re-signed with the Indians after spending the final three months of the regular season with the organization. He only wound up appearing in three games for Triple-A Columbus before hitting the disabled list with a knee injury, though he should be back to full health prior to spring training.

James Hoyt: Hits free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt (knee) will become a free agent after the Indians failed to offer him a contract for the 2019 season, Tribeinsider reports.

Although Hoyt is technically free to sign with anyone, Cleveland will likely attempt to keep him around by signing him to a minor-league deal. The 32-year-old was kept on the shelf due to injury for the majority of the 2018 season, appearing in just one game for the Astros out of the bullpen prior to being traded to the Indians in July.

Indians' James Hoyt: Hits 60-day disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was recalled from Triple-A Columbus in order to be placed on the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.

Hoyt has been out since late July with knee soreness. He'll be eligible to return in mid-September, though it's unclear if he'll be healthy enough to do so.

July 21, 2018 08:36 PM
Indians' James Hoyt: Dealing with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was placed on the minor-league disabled list Saturday with knee soreness.

Hoyt has allowed three runs in three appearances with Triple-A Columbus since being traded from Houston in early July. The severity of the injury is currently unclear, and the 31-year-old will be eligible to return towards the end of July.
