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

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

July 7, 2018 11:56 AM
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 MLB.com 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 MLB.com 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 MLB.com 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.

Astros' James Hoyt: Dealing with oblique strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt is battling a minor oblique strain and could remain sidelined for the rest of spring training, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

This injury will put Hoyt's Opening Day roster spot in jeopardy as the spring season begins to wind down. The team stated that he is "day-to-day" for the time being, but unless he's able to prove that he's healthy enough for the start of the regular season, fellow reliever Tony Sipp may win the final roster spot by default. In 2017, Hoyt logged a 4.38 ERA and 1.32 WHIP over 49.1 innings out of the bullpen.

March 19, 2018 01:56 PM
Astros' James Hoyt: Looking to claim Opening Day roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt has allowed eight runs on 12 hits and two walks across 8.1 innings while striking out seven this spring.

Hoyt is having a rough spring and he'll need to turn it around in the near future if he expects to lock up a spot in Houston's bullpen. He bounced between Triple-A Fresno and the big-league squad a season ago, and he'll look to pitch more consistently in 2018. Hoyt struck out 66 batters across 49.1 innings while recording a serviceable 4.38 ERA last year.

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

Hoyt was recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Wednesday.

As expected, Hoyt will join the Astros to provide some extra bullpen depth down the stretch. The 30-year-old owns a 4.98 ERA over 43.1 innings out of the big-league bullpen this season.

September 5, 2017 08:32 PM
Astros' James Hoyt: To join Astros on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt will be recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Wednesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Hoyt will shuttle back to Houston to rejoin the team's bullpen for the final month of the season. The 30-year-old has posted a 4.98 ERA over 43.1 innings of relief this season with the big-league club.

August 27, 2017 01:32 PM
Astros' James Hoyt: Optioned to Fresno
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Sunday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Hoyt will be sent back to the minors after the Astros activated Will Harris (shoulder) from the disabled list Sunday. Hoyt made just two relief appearances for the big-league club in August, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out five over 2.2 innings of work.

August 4, 2017 12:12 AM
Astros' James Hoyt: To return to majors Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyt will be recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Friday.

Hoyt was optioned to Fresno on July 24 but will make his way back to the majors after roughly one week in the farm leagues. The 30-year-old held a 5.54 ERA over 37.1 innings of relief prior to his recent demotion.
