Rhame signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Monday, which includes an invitation to spring training, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Rhame failed to make an appearance during the shortened 2020 campaign, but he'll have a chance to make an impact with the Padres after inking a minor-league deal. He last pitched in the big leagues during the 2019 season with the Mets, posting a 4.26 ERA and 1.89 WHIP with five punchouts in 6.1 frames.
Rhame (undisclosed) cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Angels' alternate training site Tuesday.
The 27-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Mets in early July, but he wasn't able to report to camp until last week and was unlikely to be ready for the start of the season. Rhame has been removed from the 40-man roster, but he could still be a factor for the Angels at some point this season.
Rhame is not expected to be ready for the start of the season, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
It doesn't sound like Rhame -- who was claimed off waivers last week -- will have enough time to build up after reporting to camp Tuesday. He should get a shot in the majors once he's ready to go, as pitching coach Mickey Callaway indicated the hard-throwing righty could eventually develop into an impact reliever for the Angels.
Rhame cleared intake testing and reported to the Angels' summer camp Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Rhame was claimed off waivers by the Angels last week and is now clear to begin working out with the team. The right-hander pitched in five games for the Mets last season, allowing three earned runs and posting a 5:9 K:BB over 6.1 innings.
Rhame was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Wednesday.
Rhame will head west after being waived by the Mets earlier in camp. The right-hander's 2019 season was cut short by a pair of injuries, but according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, he had resumed throwing off a mound before switching teams. Across parts of three big-league seasons, Rhame owns a 6.23 ERA and 40:24 K:BB over 47.2 innings. Per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic, Rhame will have to pass a COVID-19 test before he's cleared to join the Angels for workouts.
Rhame (elbow/foot) is listed among the Mets' available relievers for Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Rhame entered spring training slightly behind the Mets' other relievers while he neared the finish line of his recoveries from mid-August ulnar nerve transposition surgery and another procedure to address a broken left foot. The reliever had planned to pitch in the Dominican Winter League during the offseason, but the walking boot he required for his foot forced him to push back his throwing progression. Rhame looks like he'll be ready to make his spring debut Wednesday, which should put him on pace to be ready for Opening Day. If he breaks camp with the Mets, Rhame will likely be ticketed for a low-leverage role out of the bullpen.
Rhame (elbow) was shifted to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
This move is simply procedural, as Rhame has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing elbow surgery Tuesday. Ruben Tejada was added to the roster in his place.
Rhame underwent successful ulnar nerve transposition surgery Tuesday and will miss the rest of the season, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Rhame saw limited time in the majors this year, instead spending the majority of the season in the minors. The right-hander will finish the season with an ERA of 4.26 in just five appearances in the big leagues. It's an encouraging note that the surgery was successful, and it's possible that Rhame could play a role in the Mets' bullpen in 2020 even after a disappointing 2019 campaign.
Rhame was placed on the 10-day injured list with right elbow discomfort Sunday.
Rhame was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday and provided 1.1 scoreless frames, but he apparently didn't escape the outing unscathed. Left-hander Donnie Hart was called up from Syracuse to bolster the Mets' bullpen in his absence.
Rhame was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday.
Rhame owns a 6.41 ERA in 46.1 career big-league innings. He's spent most of this season with Syracuse, where he owns a 5.49 ERA in 19.2 innings. Tyler Bashlor was optioned in a corresponding move.
Rhame was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Rhame has made four appearances for the Mets this season, allowing four runs (three earned) in five innings while struggling to a 5:8 K:BB. Walker Lockett was recalled in a corresponding move.
Rhame (0-1) took the loss Friday, allowing an unearned run on three walks while striking out three over 1.2 innings in a 1-0 loss to the Giants.
Rhame didn't make things easy on himself, but a dropped fly ball by left fielder Dominic Smith allowed Alex Dickerson to score from first base in the 10th inning for the game's only run. It was Rhame's first appearance since being recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday. He owns a 5.40 ERA and 2.20 WHIP over four appearances spanning five innings at the major-league level this season.
Rhame will serve his one-game suspension Thursday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Rhame was suspended two games back in April for throwing at the head of Rhys Hoskins, though the suspension was reduced to one game following his appeal. The right-hander owns an unsightly 8.10 ERA, 2.40 WHIP and 2:5 K:BB across 3.1 innings with the Mets this season.
Rhame was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday.
Rhame was sent down to the minors at the end of April amidst his appeal attempt -- he was slapped with a two-game suspension after intentionally hitting Rhys Hoskins with a pitch. MLB has yet to make a ruling on the appeal, so the right-hander will be eligible to pitch until a decision is made.
Rhame is appealing his two-game suspension and was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Rhame received the two-game suspension after MLB determined he intentionally threw at Rhys Hoskins in Tuesday's game against the Phillies. If any portion of the right-hander's suspension is upheld, he will begin serving it upon his return to the major leagues. The 26-year-old was sent down to make room on the 25-man roster for the return of Jacob deGrom (elbow) from the injured list.
MLB suspended Rhame for two games Thursday, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.
Rhame was handed a two-game ban after it was determined the right-hander intentionally threw at Rhys Hoskins during Tuesday's win over the Phillies. If the reliever doesn't appeal the suspension, he'll begin serving it Friday and will be eligible to return for Sunday's series finale against the Brewers.
The Mets recalled Rhame from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Rhame will join the New York bullpen as a replacement for Drew Gagnon, who was optioned to Triple-A after covering 5.1 innings and tossing 97 pitches in Tuesday's 14-3 loss to the Phillies. The right-hander will give the Mets a fresh relief arm ahead of Wednesday's series finale, but Rhame's usage will likely be limited to lower-leverage spots for the duration of his stay in the big leagues.
The Mets optioned Rhame to their minor-league camp Tuesday, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.
Rhame was among the Mets' eight announced cuts as the team pared down its roster ahead of Opening Day. With fellow reliever Paul Sewald also heading back to minor-league camp with Rhame, the Mets now have three pitchers (Kyle Dowdy, Tyler Bashlor and Hector Santiago) competing for the final opening in the team's bullpen.
Rhame was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Rhame will provide another fresh arm out of the Mets' bullpen for the start of a three-game set in San Francisco. Across 22 games for the Mets this year, Rhame has logged a 7.71 ERA.
The Mets optioned Rhame to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday.
Rhame's stay with the big club was a brief one after he was brought aboard as the 26th man for the completion of a suspended game Wednesday against the Cubs in addition to that day's normally scheduled contest. The right-handed reliever will presumably rejoin the Mets in September as part of an expanded roster, but it's not expected that he'll be used in many high-leverage scenarios during the season's final month.
