Pirates' Jandel Gustave: Joins Pirates on minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave agreed to a minor-league contract with the Pirates on Monday, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.

Gustave didn't take long to find a new organization after he declined an outright assignment to the Giants' alternate training site last week when he was removed from the 40-man roster. The right-hander didn't see any action for the big club during the abbreviated season, but he made 23 appearances out of the San Francisco bullpen in 2019, logging a 2.96 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 24.1 innings. He'll claim a spot in the Pirates' 60-man roster pool and report to the organization's alternate site in Altoona.

Jandel Gustave: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave cleared waivers and elected free agency Monday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Gustave owns a 3.43 ERA in 44.2 career big-league innings, which could certainly earn him a look with another team sometime soon. Both his 17.4 percent strikeout rate and 10.9 percent walk rate are quite poor, however, so any looks he does get will likely be in a low-leverage role.

Giants' Jandel Gustave: Bumped from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave was designated for assignment by the Giants on Sunday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The right-hander was unable to make the Opening Day roster and now finds himself removed from the 40-man roster. Gustave had a 2.96 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 14:9 K:BB over 24.1 innings in 2019 but doesn't appear close to returning to the majors with the club this season.

Giants' Jandel Gustave: Drops to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave was sent to minor-league camp Friday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

The Giants are having an open competition for the closer role this spring, although Tony Watson is seemingly favored, but Gustave is no longer part of that battle. He'll open the year in the minors after allowing three runs and seven baserunners in two innings of spring action.

Giants' Jandel Gustave: Blown save in first ST appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave gave up a solo home run to Tony Kemp in a blown save in his first appearance of spring training.

His average fastball velocity (96.1 mph) is in the 90th percentile while his fastball spin is in the 80th percentile - he also throws a sinker and slider. Gustave's 14.1 percent strikeout rate from last season is a very poor mark for a reliever, but he is still expected to be a mid-to-high-leverage reliever in a weak Giants bullpen. Tony Watson is the de facto favorite to open the year as the closer, but the job is there for the taking if one of the less-experienced relievers steps up this spring.

Giants' Jandel Gustave: Corrals first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave allowed only a walk in a scoreless inning to pick up the save in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Dodgers.

The walk was only one of two baserunners allowed by six Giants relievers over the final four innings of the game. It's the first major-league save for Gustave -- closer Will Smith was presumably unavailable due to a back issue -- who pitched to an unsightly 6.15 ERA and 1.53 WHIP while recording seven saves with Triple-A Sacramento in 11 appearances. The 26-year-old has done better in the big leagues, with a 1.86 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in 19.1 innings with the Giants.

Giants' Jandel Gustave: Picks up first hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave tossed a clean inning while striking out two in Wednesday's 12-11 loss to the Cubs.

Gustave was one of just two Giants pitchers to keep the Cubs off the board in this slugfest. The 26-year-old was credited with his first major-league hold after preserving a late lead that Reyes Moronta would squander in the eighth. Gustave owns a 1.32 ERA over 13.2 innings, but his lack of strikeouts (4.6 K/9) and poor track record in the minors (6.15 ERA at Triple-A) suggest that this hot start may not last long.

Giants' Jandel Gustave: Joins to big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave was called up from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

Gustave was added to the 40-man roster a couple weeks ago and is now set to make his debut with the Giants in the wake of multiple trade-deadline departures. The 26-year-old last saw the majors in 2017 with the Astros, posting a 3.98 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 18:11 K:BB over 20.1 innings across two seasons.

Giants' Jandel Gustave: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave was added to the Giants' 40-man roster Thursday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Gustave was optioned back to Triple-A Sacramento after being added to the team's 40-man roster. Across 22.1 innings with the River Cats this season, Gustave owns a 6.85 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 22:11 K:BB. The right-hander could join the big club as bullpen depth later in the season. Travis Bergen (shoulder) was shifted to the 60-day IL to free up a roster spot for Gustave.

Giants' Jandel Gustave: Heading to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave (elbow) was reassigned to the Giants' minor-league camp Friday, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

Gustave signed a minor-league deal with the Giants in February after he missed the entirety of the 2018 season following Tommy John surgery in June 2017. The 26-year-old posted a 3.98 ERA and 18:11 K:BB over 20.1 innings with Houston in 2016 and 2017, but it remains unclear where he is currently at in his recovery.

Jandel Gustave: Hits free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave (elbow) was outrighted off the Astros' 40-man roster Wednesday.

Gustave missed the entire 2018 campaign recovering from Tommy John surgery that he underwent in June of 2017. Prior to suffering the injury, the right-hander posted a combined 3.98 ERA and 18:11 K:BB across 20.1 innings with the Astros in 2016 and 2017.

Astros' Jandel Gustave: Shifts to 60-day disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Saturday.

Gustave, who had Tommy John surgery last June, had been on the 10-day DL since late March. Outfielder Myles Straw had his contract purchased from Triple-A Fresno, prompting the move.

Astros' Jandel Gustave: Hits 10-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros placed Gustave (elbow) on the 10-day disabled list Thursday, reports.

Gustave is just past the nine-month mark in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, and given the year-plus healing timetable typically associated with the procedure, he'll likely shift to the 60-day DL at some point when the Astros need to clear up a roster spot. The right-hander is close to resuming mound work and could be ready to begin a rehab assignment at some point during the summer.

Astros' Jandel Gustave: Will be limited in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave (elbow) will have a limited workout plan with his throwing in spring training as he continues to recover from Tommy John surgery, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

Gustave, who went under the knife last June, is hopeful to resume mound work by the time camp draws to a close. He'll likely remain at extended spring training for several weeks beyond that in order for the Astros to monitor his recovery before he embarks on a lengthy rehab assignment with multiple affiliates. Don't count on the right-hander, who has made 20 appearances in the big leagues over the last two seasons, to resurface with the Astros until the second half of the campaign.

Astros' Jandel Gustave: Undergoes season-ending Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Wednesday and has been ruled out for the season, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Given the nature of the procedure, Gustave will likely still be rehabbing the injury by the time spring training arrives and may not be back to full strength until the middle of the 2018 season or later. The reliever made six appearances with the Astros in April before being shut down with a forearm strain and was moved to the 60-day disabled list last week.

Astros' Jandel Gustave: Shuttled to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday.

There's been no indication that Gustave has suffered a setback in his recovery from the flexor strain in his forearm, but he'll be moved to the 60-day DL in order to open a 40-man roster spot for outfielder Derek Fisher, who will join the big club Wednesday. Since Gustave hasn't pitched since April 18, he'll be eligible for activation within a few days, though it doesn't sound like he's particularly close to a return. Gustave will likely require multiple appearances during a rehab assignment before the Astros consider activating him.

Astros' Jandel Gustave: Starts throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave (flexor strain) has started a throwing program, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gustave has resided on the disabled list since late April, but he'd been unable to start a throwing program due to recurring arm soreness. He's giving it another shot at the team's facility in West Palm Beach, but this development doesn't necessarily outline a clear return timetable for the reliever.

Astros' Jandel Gustave: Dealing with flexor strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave was diagnosed with a flexor strain Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gustave was close to a rehab assignment before he was shut down again and sent to team doctors to address his recurring arm soreness. Although the doctors found no structural damage, Gustave will be shut down for throwing for the next 10-to-14 days, delaying his return. He should receive a firmer timetable for return once he resumes a throwing program.

Astros' Jandel Gustave: Suffering from recurring arm soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave was sent back to Houston to see team doctors after dealing with recurring arm soreness at Triple-A Fresno, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Gustave had been working his way towards a rehab assignment after dealing with forearm tightness in April. That's always a scary diagnosis for pitchers, given how often it is the precursor to Tommy John surgery. Hopefully Houston's team doctors will come up with a better prognosis. Either way, Gustave's return will be delayed, as he will still need to go on a rehab assignment even if everything checks out fine.

Astros' Jandel Gustave: Will toss another bullpen session Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gustave (forearm) is scheduled to throw his second bullpen session Monday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

If Gustave experiences no renewed pain in his forearm, he could be cleared to head out on a rehab assignment later in the week. Prior to landing on the disabled list, Gustave turned in a 5.40 ERA and had walked seven batters in five innings, so a spot in the Astros bullpen may not be guaranteed upon his activation.
