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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Indians' James Hoyt: Shipped to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was acquired by Cleveland from Houston on Friday in exchange for minor-league pitcher Tommy DeJuneas.

The 31-year-old has a career 4.40 ERA in 71.2 big-league innings, including a third of an inning this season. He has a 2.25 ERA in 28 innings at the Triple-A level this year and will remain there after switching organizations, joining Triple-A Columbus.

Astros' James Hoyt: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was optioned to Triple-A Fresno following Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Mariners, Bob Dutton of reports.

The move precedes the expected activation of the left-handed Tony Sipp (oblique) from the disabled list ahead of Wednesday's game against the Mariners. Hoyt gave up a hit and a walk over one-third of an inning in his lone appearance following his April 10 recall from Fresno.

Astros' James Hoyt: Recalled from Triple-A Fresno
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

With Tony Sipp landing on the DL with right oblique soreness, Hoyt was brought up to the big club to add depth to Houston's bullpen. Last season Hoyt tossed 49.1 innings across 43 games for the Astros, posting a 4.38 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in that time.

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

Hoyt (oblique) was activated from the 10-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Saturday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Hoyt was initially placed on the DL with a left oblique strain in late March. The right-hander will remain with Fresno as he was already with the team on a rehab assignment at the time of this move. Hoyt appeared in 43 big-league games last season, logging a 4.38 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 49.1 innings of relief. Expect him to serve as organizational depth this year.

Astros' James Hoyt: On track for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt (oblique) is expected to begin a rehabilitation assignment when the minor-league season opens Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Hoyt sustained an oblique injury late in spring training and was placed on the 10-day disabled list as a result. He came out of Sunday's live batting-practice session well and will continue to rehab in the minors. The 6-foot-6 right-hander had been competing with left-hander Tony Sipp for the final bullpen spot before the oblique injury made the decision for manager A.J. Hinch.

Astros' James Hoyt: Lands on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was placed on the 10-day DL with a left oblique strain, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Hoyt has been dealing with the injury for the past week and will require some extra time in extended spring training before returning to the mound in a major-league game. The right-hander did secure a spot on the Opening Day roster though, and will likely be utilized in low-leverage situations upon his activation.

Astros' James Hoyt: Will not break camp in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt (oblique) will remain in Florida following the conclusion of spring training, which will keep him off the Opening Day roster, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Prior to suffering a mild oblique strain, Hoyt had been fighting against Tony Sipp for a spot in Houston's bullpen. The club has yet to provide a timetable for Hoyt's return, but stated that he might be sidelined for the rest of camp. Expect Hoyt to begin the season at Triple-A Fresno once he's back up to speed.
