Adleman signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Thursday.
The 31-year-old recorded a 3.23 ERA with a 1.10 WHIP over 117 minor-league innings last season. Adleman has experience pitching out of the rotation and the bullpen, but will likely only be an emergency option for the Tigers if injuries pile up in their pitching staff.
Adleman signed with the Reds on a minor-league deal and will report to their minor-league camp at spring training, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Adleman spent 2018 pitching in Korea, but threw 122.1 innings with the Reds in 2017, posting a 5.52 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. He's there for Triple-A depth, and a rainy day option for the Reds in the event that a slew of injuries strike.
Adleman signed a one-year deal with Korea's Samsung Lions, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Adleman spent the majority of 2017 as a starter in Cincinnati before heading to the bullpen full-time in early August. He owns a 9-15 record and 4.97 career ERA with the Reds, but rather than fight to stay in the rotation on a rebuilding team all year, the 30-year-old will instead take his talents overseas. Per the report, Adelman will make $1.05 million in the upcoming season, plus a $100,000 signing bonus.
The Reds are expected to activate Scott Feldman (knee) from the 10-day disabled list and have him start Saturday's game against the Brewers, meaning that Adleman will likely head back to the bullpen in the coming days, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Manager Bryan Price had previously dropped Adleman to the bullpen a week earlier amid a string of poor starts, with Asher Wojciechowski moving from a long-relief role to claim a rotation spot. However, after No. 5 starter Robert Stephenson (shoulder), who had been filling in for the injured Feldman, hit the disabled list over the weekend, Adleman was called upon to make a spot start Monday against the Padres. The right-hander did little Monday to bolster his claim for regaining a spot in the rotation, surrendering two runs on six hits and a walk while failing to escape the fifth inning.
Adleman allowed two runs on six hits and two walks across 4.2 innings in a no-decision Monday against the Padres. He struck out four.
Making his first start since Robert Stephenson (shoulder) went on the disabled list, Adleman held the Padres in check. He kept the ball down, recording six groundball outs, with the only real mistake coming on a two-run homer by Jose Pirela in the fourth inning. Adleman worked up to 76 pitches, but he was removed one out shy of qualifying for a win, as the Reds held a lead they would never relinquish.
Adleman will start Monday's game against the Padres.
After submitting an 8.27 ERA and 1.74 WHIP in his first four starts out of the All-Star break, Adleman was moved to the bullpen last week, with long reliever Asher Wojciechowski taking his place in the rotation. Shortly after the change, the Reds placed Robert Stephenson on the 10-day disabled list with a shoulder injury, and his absence will temporarily open up a starting role for Adleman. It's expected that Adleman will head back to the bullpen immediately after Monday's outing, however, as at least one of Stephenson or Scott Feldman (knee) seems likely to be activated from the DL over the weekend to rejoin the rotation during the Reds' series in Milwaukee.
Adleman will not make his next scheduled start against the Cardinals, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Manager Bryan Price instead will turn to Asher Wojciechowski to make the start in a move that was deemed to be performance-related. Adleman allowed five and six runs in his past two starts, respectively, so the 29-year-old's bump from the rotation certainly seems to be warranted at this point. However, even if he is able to pick things up in the bullpen, it may be tough to work his way back into the rotation given that Scott Feldman (knee) and Anthony DeSclafani (elbow) are expected to return from their respective injuries relatively soon.
Adleman (5-9) allowed six runs on six hits and four walks while striking out two batters through just 4.1 innings during Saturday's loss to Miami.
Adleman entered the outing with a 6.69 ERA over his past seven outings, and Saturday's showing continued the underwhelming stretch. He's pitched his way off the fantasy grid in the majority of settings and now owns a crippling 5.42 ERA and 1.41 WHIP. Adleman's 8.1 K/9 does offer a sliver of hope in cavernous formats or as a flier candidate in the right matchup. He projects to make his next start at home against the Cardinals.
Adleman (5-8) allowed five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four batters over six innings during Monday's loss to Cleveland.
Adleman entered with a 6.53 ERA and 1.65 WHIP through his previous six starts, so it was more of the same Monday. He does sport an encouraging 8.3 K/9 for the campaign, so in the right matchups, Adleman is worth considering as a streaming option or low-priced flier for daily contests. However, his overall fantasy value remains limited. He projects to make his next start on the road against Miami.
Adleman gave up three runs on seven hits over six innings while striking out seven but didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's extra-inning win over the Diamondbacks.
It's the right-hander's sixth quality start of the year but his first since June 16, and Adleman has stumbled to a 6.53 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over his last six starts despite a strong 34:12 K:BB in 30.1 innings. He'll get another tough matchup in his next trip to the mound Monday in Cleveland.
Adleman (5-7) gave up five runs on seven hits -- including two Bryce Harper home runs -- and three walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings in Friday's 5-0 loss to the Nationals.
The right-hander has now been charged with at least three earned runs in five straight starts while failing to work past five innings in any of them, leaving him with a bloated 4.99 ERA. Adleman's job won't get any easier the next time he takes the mound Wednesday at home against the dangerous Diamondbacks.
Adleman (5-6) allowed four runs -- three earned -- on six hits and a walk while striking out four batters through five innings during Friday's loss to Arizona.
Adleman has now allowed 15 runs and seven home runs through his past four starts, and his ERA and WHIP are up to 4.71 and 1.33, respectively. The 29-year-old righty has flashed some upside this season, but he's far from a go-to fantasy asset. It's probably best to be selective with his matchups going forward in most settings, too.
Adleman (5-5) allowed three runs on six hits and one walk across five innings in Sunday's loss to the Cubs. He struck out five.
Adleman pitched well for the most part, but a pair of home runs from Ian Happ accounted for all of the tallies against him, dooming him to his third loss in four starts. He displayed improved command, walking fewer than two batters for the first time in 11 starts and throwing first-pitch strikes to 15 of 21 batters he faced. Adleman has taken his lumps at times this season, but he has allowed more than three earned runs just once in his last eight starts. That streak will be put to the test when he faces the Diamondbacks on the road this Friday.
Adleman (5-4) coughed up five runs on five hits -- including three home runs -- and three walks while striking out seven over five innings in Tuesday's 8-6 win over the Brewers.
It wasn't pretty, but on a night when the two offenses combined for seven homers, Adleman took advantage of his run support and held on just long enough to qualify for a win. The 29-year-old has now walked multiple batters and given up at least one home run in six straight starts, a combination that makes him a ratio risk for any fantasy GM who dares to plug him into their active lineup. His next start comes Sunday at home against the Cubs.
Adleman (4-4) gave up three runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out seven over five innings in a loss to the Rays on Wednesday.
Walks were his Achilles' heel in this one -- they drove up his pitch count, and two of the four runners Adleman put on via the free pass came around to score. He's been on a fairly strong run since a May 20 blowup against Colorado, posting a 2.68 ERA over his last six starts, so he's probably secure in his role even with Homer Bailey (elbow) and Brandon Finnegan (shoulder) nearing returns. That said, the walks, a middling strikeout rate and a hitter's home park put Adleman merely on the periphery of standard mixed-league relevance.
Adleman (4-3) allowed just two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four batters through six innings during Friday's loss to the Dodgers.
Adleman has now allowed just eight earned runs over 32 innings through his past five starts, and the strong stretch has him sporting a serviceable 4.22 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 7.6 K/9 for the year. His fantasy stock is trending up, and Adleman is definitely in play as a potential streaming option or low-priced flier in daily contests when facing a favorable opponent. He projects to make his next start on the road against Tampa Bay.
Adleman (4-2) gave up one run on three hits and two walks while striking out seven over seven innings in Tuesday's 13-1 rout of the Cardinals.
He threw 71 of 110 pitches for strikes and took a possible shutout into the seventh inning until Stephen Piscotty touched him up for a solo shot. Adleman has now delivered three straight quality starts and will take a 4.42 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into his next outing Sunday on the road against the Dodgers.
Adleman (3-2) gave up three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings but came away with a no-decision in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Blue Jays.
He wasn't particularly sharp, throwing 51 of 95 pitches for strikes, but it was the right-hander's second straight quality start and fourth of the season. Adleman will try to make it three straight quality starts Tuesday at home against the Cardinals.
Adleman (3-2) pitched eight shutout innings on one hit and two walks while striking out four to earn the win Friday against the Phillies.
Adleman came up with his best start of the season after having allowed nine earned runs over his previous 5.2 innings. Despite his excellent outing that lowered his ERA to 4.95, he's too inconsistent to trust on a regular basis in fantasy lineups. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Adleman's scheduled start for Thursday was rained out, so he will be pushed back to start Friday's contest in Philadelphia, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The Reds will take the easy route to adapt their rotation to accommodate the inclement weather, simply moving the weekend's rotation back to keep things in order. Adleman will now square off with Phillies' right-hander Aaron Nola on Friday.
