Diamondbacks' Keury Mella: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Mella's contract was selected by Arizona on Tuesday, but he gave up six runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out two in 1.2 relief innings. His removal from the 40-man roster will make room for right-hander Noe Ramirez, whose contract was selected Friday.

Diamondbacks' Keury Mella: Contract selected by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella had his contract selected by the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old was designated for assignment at the start of spring training but remained in the organization, and he'll rejoin the major-league roster Tuesday. Mella gave up two runs with a 10:3 K:BB over 10 innings for Arizona in 2020, and he has a 3.86 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 19:7 K:BB across 18.2 innings at Triple-A Reno this season.

Diamondbacks' Keury Mella: Stays in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks outrighted Mella to Triple-A Reno on Monday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

Mella will remain in the organization after he went unclaimed off waivers following his designation for assignment Friday. The 27-year-old has seen big-league action in each of the past four seasons, accruing a career 5.67 ERA over 19 relief appearances.

Diamondbacks' Keury Mella: DFA'd by Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella was designated for assignment by Arizona on Friday.

The 27-year-old gave up only two earned runs and had a 10:3 K:BB over 10 innings for Arizona during 2020, but he no longer has a spot on the 40-man roster. Mella should remain in big-league camp but is likely to begin the season in the minors.

Diamondbacks' Keury Mella: Snags second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella (2-0) tossed a scoreless sixth inning to become the pitcher of record during the Diamondbacks' 3-2 Wednesday night win over the Rangers.

Arizona's offense exploded for six runs in the bottom of the frame to give Mella the win. The 27-year-old has a 2.00 ERA through 10 appearances in 2020.

Diamondbacks' Keury Mella: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella's contract was selected by the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Mella struggled over brief stints in the majors with the Reds during the past three seasons, but he'll be available out of the Diamondbacks' bullpen in the coming games. It's unlikely that he'll play a significant role in Arizona.

Diamondbacks' Keury Mella: Part of 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella will be a part of the Diamondbacks' 60-man summer camp.

Mella signed a minor-league deal with Arizona in January to join camp as a non-roster invitee, so it's not too surprising to see him get the same opportunity with the season set to resume. The right-hander was shaky with the Reds over a small sample at the MLB level in 2019 and posted a 5.05 ERA across 142.2 innings with Triple-A Louisville in the same season.

Diamondbacks' Keury Mella: Signs minors deal with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella joined the Diamondbacks as a non-roster invitee Tuesday.

Mella has thrown 17 major-league innings, all with the Reds. He hasn't fared well in those innings, recording a 7.94 ERA and a 13:12 K:BB.

Reds' Keury Mella: Sent outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

Following a lackluster season in the minors last year, recording a 5.05 ERA with a 102:56 K:BB over 142.2 innings, Mella was promoted to the majors to provide bullpen depth at the beginning of September. The right-hander made just two appearances, allowing three runs off five hits and two walks while recording four strikeouts in 3.2 innings. Barring a major turnaround, it's unlikely that the 26-year-old will see consistent major-league action in 2020.

Reds' Keury Mella: Promoted to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

The Reds have elected to promote Mella after rosters expanded Sept. 1. He's posted a 5.05 ERA and 1.52 WHIP with 102 strikeouts over 142.2 innings this season as a starter at Triple-A as a starter. He figures to be used in a relief role while with the big-league club.

Reds' Keury Mella: Heads to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella was sent to minor-league camp Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Mella pitched 9.1 innings in the big leagues last season, allowing nine runs and recording an 8:8 K:BB. He could get another opportunity at some point this season when injuries hit the major-league roster.

Reds' Keury Mella: Done for season with oblique strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella was recalled Tuesday so that the Reds could place him on the 60-day disabled list with a left oblique strain, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic Cincinnati reports.

Mella threw 9.1 innings of relief for the Reds this season, allowing nine runs. He was much better in the minors, recording a 3.00 ERA in 21 starts split between Double-A Pensacola and Triple-A Louisville. The timing of the injury means he'll be done for the season but should be ready by the start of spring training.

Reds' Keury Mella: Sent down to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

Mella has an ugly 8.68 ERA in 9.1 innings of relief for the Reds this season. The four home runs he's surrendered appear to be the primary culprit, though he's also walked as many batters as he's struck out (eight) and has allowed a .333 batting average. Cody Reed was called up to fill his low-leverage bullpen role.

Reds' Keury Mella: Good relief outing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella held the line for the Reds on Thursday night after Tyler Mahle's disaster start, holding the Nats to one run over 4.1 innings. He gave up three hits and four walks, however, striking out only two.

Mella has been a starter throughout his minor-league career, but the Reds are breaking him in on long relief. He was part of the package from the Giants in the Mike Leake deal and has spent most of the last two seasons at Double-A Pensacola.

Reds' Keury Mella: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Friday.

He had been working as a starter at Double-A and Triple-A this year, but barring an unreported injury to someone in the rotation or an impending trade of Saturday's starter, Matt Harvey, it seems Mella will work out of the big-league bullpen. His numbers in a repeat trip to Double-A were pretty impressive (3.07 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 87 strikeouts in 85 innings), but he was less successful in three starts at Triple-A (3.18 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 10 strikeouts in 17 innings). Mella could be a quality middle reliever in the short term if that's the role the Reds have in mind for him.

Reds' Keury Mella: Back at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella is opening the year back at Double-A Pensacola,'s Jonathan Mayo reports.

There was some confusion about where Mella would start the year after he was optioned from big-league camp this spring, but he will open where he finished 2017, as a member of the Blue Wahoos. The team has not yet announced its rotation schedule, but Mella should take the ball in the coming days. He notched a 3.94 FIP in 134 innings at Double-A last year, so he will likely head to Triple-A early in the season, and could provide big-league rotation depth in the second half.

Reds' Keury Mella: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella has been sent to Triple-A Louisville, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic Cincinnati reports.

Mella earned a September call-up to the Reds last season, allowing three runs in four innings. He spent the bulk of the year at Double-A Pensacola, where he recorded a 4.30 ERA in 134 innings. With a solid showing at Louisville, the 24-year-old righty could be in line for another call-up later this season.

Reds' Keury Mella: Recalled from Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella was recalled from Double-A Pensacola on Tuesday, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

As a member of the 40-man roster, it's not surprising to see Mella recalled with expanded rosters despite the fact he has only logged seven innings above Double-A in his career. Mella improved as the season went on, notching a 3.79 ERA over his last 10 starts and finishing his season with the Blue Wahoos with a 4.30 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 109 strikeouts. He hasn't developed into the type of strikeout pitcher that many thought he would when he was in the lower levels of the minors, but Mella could potentially profile as a back-end starter or middle reliever in the coming years.

Reds' Keury Mella: Double-A progress report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bella allowed two runs over 5.2 innings for Double-A Pensacola on Thursday night, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. He has a 4.50 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 34 innings there, with a 26:18 K:BB.

Mella was supposed to be the big addition for the Reds in the Mike Leake deal with the Giants in 2015, but instead it's Adam Duvall who has paid the biggest dividends. Mella has been a little unlucky with a 68 percent strand rate and .346 BABIP, but his lack of strikeouts has been disappointing.

November 18, 2016 02:12 PM
Reds' Keury Mella: Added to 40-man roster Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mella was added to Cincinnati's 40-man roster Friday.

Mella was hit a bit harder in 2016 than he had previously been, but it didn't stop the right-hander from posting a passable 3.90 ERA and a 0.5 HR/9. His lively fastball and power curveball could help him advance through the organization at a nice pace, but given the fact that he only has one start above High-A shows that he still has a ways to go before contributing at the major league level.
