Rangers' Jerad Eickhoff: Joins Texas on minor-league pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Sunday.

Eickhoff was quick to find an opportunity in another organization after he was granted his release from San Diego on Wednesday. He'll join the Rangers' 60-man roster pool and will report to the Rangers' alternate training site, but Eickhoff could be in line for a quick promotion if Texas parts with other pitchers prior to Monday's trade deadline. Eickhoff made 12 appearances (10 starts) for Philadelphia in 2019, posting a 5.71 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over 58.1 innings.

Padres' Jerad Eickhoff: Optioned to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff was optioned to the Padres' alternate training site Monday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Just one day after his contract was selected by San Diego, Eickhoff will return to alternate camp after failing to make an appearance out of the bullpen. Outfielder Abraham Almonte was added to the active roster to take Eickhoff's place.

Padres' Jerad Eickhoff: Moves up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres selected Eickhoff's contract from their alternate training site prior to Sunday's game against the Rockies.

He'll assume the active roster spot of first baseman Eric Hosmer (illness), who was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a non-COVID-19-related illness. Though all but three of Eickhoff's previous 78 major-league appearances -- all with the Phillies -- came as a starter, the right-hander is expected to work in a long-relief role for San Diego.

Padres' Jerad Eickhoff: Part of taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff is part of the Padres' three-man taxi squad on their current road trip, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Eickhoff enjoyed a strong spring, but he was never a serious contender for a spot in the Padres' rotation. The veteran has been a starter throughout most of his big-league career and can thus fill in as a long reliever or spot starter. He won't be able to participate in games unless a member of the current 30-man roster goes down to injury or tests positive for COVID-19.

Padres' Jerad Eickhoff: Enjoys solid spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff allowed two runs on four hits in four Cactus League innings while posting a 7:0 K:BB.

Eickhoff was never really in contention for a spot in the rotation after signing a minor-league deal with the Padres in January. The 29-year-old is likely to open the campaign with Triple-A El Paso but could be among the first in line for a callup should a San Diego starter go down with injury. Eickhoff holds a career 4.15 ERA (4.39 FIP) and 21.3 percent strikeout rate over 440 major-league innings.

Padres' Jerad Eickhoff: Signs with San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff signed with the Padres as a non-roster invitee in late December, Aaron Hancock of 14 News reports.

The transaction hasn't been announced by the team but was confirmed by the pitcher himself in an interview. Eickhoff has had a tough time over the last two seasons, with injuries (including a lat strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, biceps tendinitis and a finger laceration) limiting him to 63.2 innings and a 5.80 ERA. Prior to those struggles, he was a capable if unexciting starter, posting a 3.87 ERA and a 21.0 percent strikeout rate over 65 starts. There's a chance he winds up as a back-end starter at some point this season, but that would require far better health than he's had recently.

Jerad Eickhoff: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (finger) became a free agent after refusing an outright assignment to the minors on Monday.

Injuries have derailed Eickhoff's career over the last two seasons, limiting him to a combined 63.2 big-league innings and a 5.80 ERA. He'll search for a new club heading into his age-29 season.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Called up, placed on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies recalled Eickhoff from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday and placed him on the 60-day injured list with a blister/laceration on his right middle finger.

Eickhoff recently overcame a biceps injury before he was optioned to Triple-A on Aug. 20 but made just one start for Lehigh Valley before apparently succumbing to a new issue. Since Eickhoff wasn't expected to contribute for the big club at any point in September, the Phillies elected to shut him down for the season in order to open up another spot on the 40-man roster.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Activated, optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (biceps) was activated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

He gave up 11 earned runs in 12.1 innings (five appearances) on his rehab assignment, so the Phillies aren't quite ready to give him another look in the majors. Eickhoff should join the big-league bullpen in September.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (biceps) was shifted to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

This move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Logan Morrison, who had his contract purchased from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. Eickhoff, who has been sidelined since June 17, won't be eligible to return until Friday following this move. He's made three minor-league rehab appearances since the start of August, with his most recent coming for Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday (he allowed two runs with three strikeouts in 2.1 innings).

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Beginning minor-league stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (biceps) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Clearwater on Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Eickhoff has been out since June 17 due to right biceps tendinitis, but after being shut down from throwing for three weeks, he's been given the thumbs up to head out on a rehab stint. Considering he's been out of commission for well over a month, he'll likely require at least a few outings to get his arm back in shape.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Nearing rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (biceps) is expected to begin a rehab assignment next week, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Eickhoff has been sidelined since June 16 with biceps tendinitis, but he's finally nearing a return to game action. Given the length of his absence, the right-hander will need to make multiple minor-league appearances before he's cleared to rejoin the Phillies, meaning he likely won't be ready to return to the big-league rotation until at least mid-August.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Won't throw for three weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (biceps) will be shut down for at least three weeks, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

He was placed on the injured list with biceps tendinitis Monday. If he won't throw for three weeks, that means he won't be returning to the big-league rotation until at least late July.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Out with biceps tendinitis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff was placed on the 10-day injured list with right biceps tendinitis Monday.

Eickhoff allowed 12 runs and seven homers in just four innings over his last two appearances, which can possibly be explained by the biceps injury. It's not clear how much time he's expected to miss. Edgar Garcia was called up to take his place in the bullpen in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Hit hard in relief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff surrendered five runs on six hits and a walk over his lone inning of relief in Sunday's 15-1 loss to the Braves.

Eickhoff had lined up for two starts entering the week, but he ultimately missed out on the two step since he was removed from the Philadelphia rotation after surrendering seven runs in three innings to the Diamondbacks on June 10. Unfortunately for those that included him in weekly lineups, Eickhoff still did plenty of damage to fantasy managers' ratios while mopping up in the blowout loss to Atlanta. The Phillies have yet to decide on a permanent fifth starter, but Eickhoff probably doesn't rank high among the team's potential options after serving up a whopping 18 home runs in his last seven appearances.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Removed from rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff is no longer a member of Philadelphia's starting rotation, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Eickhoff was shelled by the Diamondbacks on Monday, allowing seven runs over three-plus innings, so the Phillies have elected to move him to the bullpen. It remains to be seen who will take Eickhoff's spot in the rotation.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Demolished by D-backs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (3-4) took the loss Monday, surrendering seven runs on five hits -- all five of them home runs -- and two walks over three-plus innings while striking out two as the Phillies were downed 13-8 by the Diamondbacks.

Arizona's first three batters of the night all took Eickhoff yard. then Eduardo Escobar and Alex Avila chased him from the game in the fourth inning with two-run shots. The D-backs ended up setting a club record with eight total homers, while the two teams combined for an MLB-record 13 long balls. Eickhoff will take a 5.02 ERA, 50:17 K:BB and ghastly 2.5 HR/9 through 57.1 innings into his next start Sunday in Atlanta.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Picks up third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (3-3) allowed three runs in six innings and picked up the win against San Diego on Tuesday, giving up four hits and striking out five. He did not walk a batter.

Handed the task of snapping Philadelphia's five-game losing streak, Eickhoff was up to the challenge, earning both his first quality start and first win in nearly a month. He did so by limiting the Padres to five baserunners and allowing only one ball to leave the yard after having surrendered multiple home runs in each of his previous four starts. After an effective April in which he posted a 2.12 ERA in 17 innings of work, Eickhoff struggled with a 5.17 ERA in 31 innings in May. He'll look to build upon a positive start to June when he faces Arizona on Monday in his next scheduled start.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Sunk by homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff (2-3) allowed four earned runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out four across 6.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Cardinals.

Eickhoff's outing was ruined by the long ball, as he surrendered three homers that accounted for all four of his earned runs. He's struggled to keep the ball in the yard of late, as he's now allowed all 10 of his home runs for the season in his past four starts. As a result, he's surrendered 17 earned runs across 18.1 innings in that span, with his ERA on the campaign rising from 1.50 to 4.10. He'll look to snap out of the slump in his next start, currently scheduled for Tuesday at San Diego.

Phillies' Jerad Eickhoff: Early exit in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eickhoff didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-4 win over the Brewers, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk over three innings while striking out one.

Christian Yelich and Orlando Arcia both took Eickhoff deep, but the Phillies rallied in the middle innings to take the right-hander off the hook for his third loss. He's now given up multiple homers in three straight starts, not lasting longer than five innings in any of them, and the rough stretch has inflated Eickhoff's ERA to 3.86. He'll try to turn things around in his next outing Thursday, at home against the Cardinals.
