Rumbelow was released by the Mariners on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Rumbelow struggled to an 8.17 ERA, 2.07 WHIP and 22:15 K:BB in 15.1 innings with Triple-A Tacoma before being released by Seattle. The right-hander will now look to latch on elsewhere as organizational pitching depth.
Rumbelow cleared waivers Wednesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma.
It's hardly surprising that Rumbelow's 9.19 Triple-A ERA wasn't appealing enough for another team to claim him off waivers. He'll remain in the Mariners organization but doesn't appear to be close to returning to the big leagues.
Rumbelow was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Friday.
Rumbelow made three appearances for the Mariners back in March but was removed from the 25-man roster after allowing four runs while recording just four outs. Since then, he's allowed 16 earned runs in 15.2 frames for Triple-A Tacoma, leading to him being removed from the 40-man roster as well. Andrew Moore was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move.
Rumbelow was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Rumbelow has one save in his three appearances but has also allowed four runs in just 1.1 innings of work. As a mediocre reliever with options, he'll likely bounce between Seattle and Tacoma for much of the season. The move clears room on the 25-man roster for Connor Sadzeck, who was acquired in a trade with Texas on Monday.
Rumbelow struck out Xander Bogaerts to get the final out Saturday night and record the save.
Zac Rosscup began the ninth inning in a non-save situation with a 6-2 lead and conceded a hit and walk along with two outs, but Dylan Moore then committed three errors in a row at third base -- the first two with Rosscup on the mound and the third with Rumbelow pitching -- bringing the score to 6-5 before Rumbelow finally got the third out. For what it's worth, Cory Gearrin pitched the last two days, so he still may be in the mix for future saves. Notably, both Rumbelow and Gearrin were mentioned by manager Scott Servais on Saturday as two of several candidates for save opportunities during Hunter Strickland's (lat) stint on the injured list, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Rumbelow allowed a hit over a scoreless ninth inning in an exhibition loss to the Padres on Tuesday but recorded three strikeouts.
Rumbelow wrapped up a stellar spring with a dominating ninth-inning performance Tuesday, sandwiching strikeouts of Jose Pirela, Greg Garcia and Franchy Cordero around an Austin Hedges single. Rumbelow scuffled in a couple of stints with the Mariners in 2018 (6.11 ERA, 1.42 WHIP) and also was tagged for three earned runs on two hits and a walk over a third of an inning by the Athletics in last week's season-opening series in Japan. However, he offered reason for optimism with his body of work this spring, during which he posted a 1.50 ERA over five appearances. Rumbelow projects for a middle-relief role, with his near-mid-90s fastball giving him some strikeout upside.
Rumbelow was recalled from Double-A Arkansas on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old pitched 13.1 innings for the Mariners earlier in the season, recording a 6.75 ERA while allowing six homers. He'll be one of many low-leverage arms in the team's expanded September bullpen.
Rumbelow was optioned to Double-A Arkansas on Tuesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Rumbelow made just one appearance during his most recent stint with the Mariners, allowing one run across three innings of relief against the Astros last week. He now owns an unremarkable 6.75 ERA across 13.1 big-league innings this season. The 26-year-old should be back in the majors when a fresh bullpen arm is needed.
Rumbelow was called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.
Rumbelow will shuttle back to the big-league level in order to give Seattle a fresh bullpen arm ahead of Wednesday's series finale versus the Astros. Across eight appearances this year, he's logged an unsightly 7.84 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in 10.1 innings of relief. He will be utilized in low-leverage spots while with the Mariners. In a corresponding move, Ross Detwiler was designated for assignment.
Rumbelow was optioned back to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday.
Rumbelow spent just two days in the majors without making an appearance before being relegated back to the minors. He struggled to the tune of a 7.84 ERA in the majors this season, but he has a strong 2.25 ERA and a 20:6 K:BB in 12 minor-league innings this year. His demotion makes room for Erasmo Ramirez to return from the disabled list and start Sunday's contest.
Rumbelow was called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Rumbelow has spent the past month in the minors, posting a 3.00 ERA and 15 strikeouts in nine innings of relief since July 15. He will return to a low-leverage role in the Mariners' bullpen, where he's struggled to a 7.84 ERA and 1.65 WHIP across 10.1 innings this season.
Rumbelow was sent down to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.
The Mariners will replenish their bullpen after Rumbelow allowed four earned runs on four hits -- including two home runs -- and one hit batsman during Thursday's series finale against the Angels. Across 10.1 innings of work with the big-league club this season, he's posted an unsightly 7.84 ERA and 1.65 WHIP.
Rumbelow was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.
Rumbelow will provide bullpen depth, perhaps only for a day or two. If the Mariners decide to dip into the farm system to replace Felix Hernandez (back) in the rotation this week, Rumbelow would be a logical choice to get the bump. He's given up nine hits -- including two home runs -- in his 7.1 innings with Seattle so far this season.
Rumbelow was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday.
Rumbelow tossed 7.1 innings of relief for Seattle this season, recording a mediocre 4.91 ERA. Outfielder John Andreoli was called up to take his place on the roster.
Rumbelow was called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday.
Rumbelow will join the Mariners' bullpen after tossing three scoreless one-inning outings for Tacoma over the past week. These appearances were the first of the season for Rumbelow, who had been sidelined with neck and shoulder injuries dating back to early March. Expect to see him utilized in a low-leverage role for the time being.
Rumbelow (neck) was reinstated from the disabled list Tuesday, Tacoma Rainiers broadcaster Mike Curto reports.
Rumbelow is set to make his season debut after recovering from a nerve issue in his neck. In 2017 at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, he posted a 0.62 ERA and 0.83 WHIP with 30 strikeouts across 29 innings out of the bullpen.
Rumbelow (neck) began a throwing program in Arizona this week, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.
Rumbelow has been dealing with some shoulder discomfort and a compressed nerve in his neck over the past couple months, but the 26-year-old has finally resumed throwing. He will likely need a few more weeks to get up to speed, though the club has yet to describe any sort of timetable for the right-hander. Expect an update once he's able to throw off the mound without any discomfort.
General manager Jerry Dipoto said Rumbelow is still sidelined with a nerve issue in his neck, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Rumbelow, who was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma earlier in the month, has been unable to pitch since Feb. 24 due to the issue. This rules him out as a possible bullpen replacement for David Phelps, who was recently diagnosed with a torn UCL.
Rumbelow (neck, shoulder) was officially optioned to Triple-A Tacoma by the Mariners on Saturday.
Rumbelow was expected to push for an Opening Day roster spot in the Mariners bullpen, but has been held out with shoulder discomfort since Feb. 24 and more recently is also battling a neck issue. The 26-year-old tossed two-thirds of an inning in his lone appearance of spring training and has no clear timetable for his potential return.
Rumbelow is dealing with a neck issue in addition to shoulder discomfort, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Rumbelow hasn't appeared in a spring game since Feb. 24 when he exited an outing against the White Sox with a cut on his right thumb. Although the thumb is no longer an issue, shoulder discomfort and neck problems are obviously not good signs as Opening Day looms right around the corner. The 26-year-old was expected to push for a spot on the Opening Day roster in a relief role, but those hopes are all but dashed unless he's able to make a speedy recovery and impress the organization within the next couple weeks.
