Cubs' Kendall Graveman: Heads to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman (elbow) was moved to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

This is a procedural move, as Graveman is expected to miss most if not all of 2019 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in July of 2018. This move opens up a 40-man roster spot for the Cubs while Graveman rehabs his injury.

Cubs' Kendall Graveman: Joins Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman (elbow) signed with the Cubs on Saturday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

Graveman underwent Tommy John surgery in late July. A typical recovery timeline will keep him sidelined for most if not all of 2019, and it's unlikely that he'll have time to build back up to being a starter if he does end up pitching any major-league innings. The 28-year-old had an ugly 7.60 ERA in seven starts prior to the injury last season, though he'd never posted an ERA worse than 4.19 in any of his four previous seasons.

Kendall Graveman: Hits open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman (elbow) wasn't tendered by the Athletics on Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Graveman underwent Tommy John surgery near the end of July, and there's a good chance he'll miss a decent chunk of the 2019 season while rehabbing. He started seven games for Oakland prior to the injury, accruing a 7.60 ERA with 27 strikeouts over 34.1 frames.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Needs Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman will undergo Tommy John surgery, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

He has not pitched since May 24, but since he won't be having the surgery until now, Graveman will likely miss the entire 2019 season. The 27-year-old righty has a 4.38 ERA in 446 MLB innings, but turned in a career-worst 7.60 ERA in seven starts for the big-league club this season before suffering the injury.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Could be facing extended absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman (forearm), who is on the Triple-A disabled list, is rehabbing in Arizona but may be out "for some time" according to manager Bob Melvin, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Graveman originally went on the disabled list at Triple-A Nashville on May 31 after compiling a 2-1 record, 4.50 ERA and 1.75 WHIP over 24 innings across four starts. He was originally expected to only miss about 10 days, but that timeline has already been exceeded. The right-hander has yet to resume any baseball activities, and according to Melvin, the organization will be careful not to rush the 27-year-old back. "Typically, we're pretty cautious with that type of thing -- so he's not doing any baseball activity at this point," Melvin said.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Hits Triple-A DL with forearm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Nashville on Sunday due to a right forearm strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Fortunately for Graveman, he underwent an MRI which revealed no structural damage to his throwing arm, leaving the organization optimistic that he won't be sidelined longer than 10 days. The injury is nonetheless an untimely development for the soft-tossing hurler, who might have been next in line for a promotion to the big leagues if a replacement in the rotation is needed for Daniel Gossett (elbow) during the upcoming week.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Three straight quality starts in Nashville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman is 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.75 WHIP over 24 innings across four outings with Triple-A Nashville, but he's now produced three consecutive quality starts.

The right-hander got off to a rough start in Nashville on May 1, allowing six earned runs on 11 hits over 5.2 innings to Colorado Springs. However, he's subsequently rebounded to pitch at least six innings and give up no more than two earned runs in each of his last three trips to the mound with the Sounds, and he also picked a win over the Yankees in a big-league spot start May 11. Graveman has generated a 13:4 K:BB over that span as well, and it appears the Athletics will continue to allow him to build his confidence at the Triple-A level for the time being before considering him for another promotion.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Promotion not imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman was bypassed for a promotion from Triple-A Nashville when the Athletics required a fifth starter Sunday against the Diamondbacks, and he's expected to remain in the minors for the foreseeable future to continue working on his mechanics, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Frankie Montas was instead summoned from Triple-A to fill Brett Anderson's (shoulder) spot in the rotation Sunday and delivered six innings of one-run ball and struck out seven in the spot start. Though Anderson and Andrew Triggs (forearm) both seem likely to miss at least two more turns through the rotation, the strong performances delivered by Montas and Daniel Gossett in place of the injured hurlers give the Athletics no incentive to look in Graveman's direction just yet. Graveman will instead continue to bide his time at Nashville, where he has posted a 4.50 ERA and 1.75 WHIP across four starts this season.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Candidate for promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman is a candidate to be called up from Triple-A Nashville in the wake of recent injuries to Andrew Triggs (forearm) and Brett Anderson (shoulder), Susan Slusser of SFGate.com reports.

Graveman just headed back to the Sounds last Tuesday after a solid May 11 spot start against the Yankees in which he earned his first big-league win of the season. With both Triggs and Anderson now on the disabled list, the Athletics appear to have an opening for the 27-year-old right-hander. However, he likely wouldn't take the hill until Wednesday at the earliest if he's summoned, considering he threw 93 pitches over six innings for Nashville in a win over Oklahoma City on Friday.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.

While he held his own in a spot start last week, Graveman is no longer needed in the big-league rotation with Trevor Cahill (elbow) expected to return from the disabled list Wednesday. The 27-year-old has proven he can be an effective major-league starter in the past, so Graveman could find his way back in the big-league rotation if he pitches well with the Sounds and Brett Anderson and Andrew Triggs continue to struggle for the A's.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Could lose rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman is no longer expected to start Wednesday against the Red Sox after Athletics manager Bob Melvin expressed confidence that Trevor Cahill (elbow) would be able to return from the 10-day disabled list to take the hill for that contest, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Following a brief stint at Triple-A Nashville, Graveman was called up last week to fill the rotation spot vacated by Cahill and turned in a quality start Friday against the Yankees, covering six innings and giving up four runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks. Even after the positive outing, Graveman's ERA still sits at 7.60 across 34.1 innings with the big club this season, so he could be at risk of moving to the bullpen or back to Nashville in the wake of Cahill's return. Andrew Triggs and Brett Anderson have also posted poor results of late and could be other options for demotion if the Athletics decide to keep Graveman in the starting ranks.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: In line for Wednesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman (shin) completed a bullpen session and did some running Sunday, putting him on track to make his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Red Sox, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

MLB.com is already listing Graveman as the Athletics' probable starter for Wednesday, so it appears the bruised shin he sustained in his return to the big leagues Friday isn't an issue. After turning in a 8.89 ERA and 1.84 WHIP through his first six starts this season before being optioned to Triple-A Nashville, Graveman came through with a quality start Friday, holding a powerful Yankees offense to four runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks to capture his first win of the campaign. Graveman should hold down a rotation spot until Trevor Cahill (elbow) is cleared to return from the 10-day disabled list.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Dealing with sore shin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman, who picked up his first win over the Yankees on Friday, is dealing with a sore right shin stemming from a line drive he absorbed during the start, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Manager Bob Melvin downplayed the severity despite the fact the right-hander was still limping a bit Saturday, calling Graveman "a tough guy." The Athletics skipper also conceded that Graveman's regularly scheduled side session for Sunday was somewhat in doubt, but that it would take place no later than Monday in the event of a postponement. The 28-year-old's strong effort Friday (one earned run over six innings) was a welcome sight after the rough 0-4 start to the season and the loss of Trevor Cahill to the disabled list with an elbow impingement.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Nabs win in Friday's return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman (1-5) picked up the win over the Yankees on Friday, allowing four runs (one earned) on three hits and two walks over six innings while striking out four.

The right-hander served up two homers to account for all four runs, but Graveman got more than enough run support in a 10-5 victory to make him a winner in his return to the rotation. He still has a 7.60 ERA, however, and things won't get any easier for him in his next start Wednesday on the road against the Red Sox.

May 11, 2018 11:16 AM
Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Will start against Yankees on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman will be called up to take the hill versus the Yankees on Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The Athletics will officially recall Graveman in the coming hours after the 27-year-old got back on track with a solid performance last weekend with Triple-A Nashville. Over six starts with the big-league club this season, Graveman has struggled tremendously, posting an 8.89 ERA and 1.84 WHIP with a 23:11 K:BB in 28.1 innings. He will have his hands full against the Yankees.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Solid in latest minor-league start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman notched his first minor-league victory of 2018 in Triple-A Nashville's win over Memphis on Sunday, allowing two earned runs on eight hits and one walk over 6.1 innings. He recorded five strikeouts.

The right-hander was making his second appearance with the Sounds, and his performance Sunday represented a marked improvement over his initial outing. Graveman had given up six earned runs on 11 hits and three walks over 5.2 innings against Colorado Springs on May 1, a caliber of effort disturbingly similar to the ones that earned him a demotion after six starts. Graveman will look to build on Sunday's appearance as he attempts to eventually work his way back to the big-league club.

April 26, 2018 06:40 PM
Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday.

Graveman has struggled through six starts this season, compiling an 8.89 ERA and 1.84 WHIP across 28.1 innings, but this is still a bit surprising. The 27-year-old has proven he can be a serviceable big-league starter over the previous three seasons, posting a 4.11 ERA across 71 starts, so he'll likely be afforded an opportunity to rejoin the rotation once he smooths out some kinks in the minors. In the meantime, Wilmer Font was added to the roster in his place. Graveman's replacement in the rotation has yet to be announced.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Remains winless despite quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman (0-5) gave up three runs on six hits and four walks with seven strikeouts over six innings as he took the loss Wednesday to the Rangers.

Graveman remains winless despite easily his best start of the year, his first quality start of the campaign. For the first time all season, Graveman didn't give up a home run, and his seven strikeouts were a season best. Unfortunately, Graveman still walked four batters, and as a result he needed 112 pitches to get through just six innings. Sure, it's a bright spot, but even on his best day yet, Graveman was still mediocre. He'll carry an 8.89 ERA into his next start.

Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Shelled again in fourth straight loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman (0-4) took the loss against the Red Sox on Friday, giving up six earned runs on seven hits over five innings while striking out six and walking none.

It was the fourth loss in five starts to begin the season for Graveman, who now has an ugly 10.07 ERA and 1.88 WHIP in 22.1 innings. He hasn't given up less than four earned runs in any of his starts this season and should remain off the fantasy radar barring a drastic turnaround.

April 15, 2018 09:36 AM
Athletics' Kendall Graveman: Takes loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graveman (0-3) allowed five earned runs on eight hits while walking two and striking out five across four innings to take the loss Saturday against the Mariners.

Graveman routinely allowed runners on base Saturday, but the big blow came on a three-run homer by Jean Segura. He has now allowed at least one home run in each of his starts this season and sports an ugly 9.87 ERA as a result. There's no reason to trust him in any fantasy format until he starts to show signs of turning things around.
