Red Sox's Zack Godley: Starting on short rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley will start on short rest Wednesday against the Rays, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

The 30-year-old delivered four scoreless frames during Saturday's start, and he'll be asked to start on three days rest his next time out with the Red Sox still scrambling with the rotation. Godley has a 3.97 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 11:4 K:BB through 11.1 innings this season.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Strong in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley tossed four scoreless innings, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out three in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Godley did his part Saturday, but the Red Sox mustered just one run and four hits, and that wasn't enough. The 30-year-old righty has a 3.97 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with 11 strikeouts in 11.1 innings this season. He'll likely keep working up to a starter's workload in his next appearance, which is expected to be Thursday versus the Rays.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Roughed up early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley (0-1) took the loss Saturday against the Yankees after allowing five runs on six hits over 3.1 innings. He had one strikeouts and two walks.

The veteran right-hander was in trouble early, as Aaron Judge took him deep during the opening frame, and Gio Urshela clubbed a grand slam during the second inning. Godley reached 69 pitches Saturday and should continue ramping up toward a full starting workload. He lines up to next take the mound next weekend versus the Blue Jays.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Set to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley will start Saturday's game against the Yankees, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

The veteran right-hander made his Boston debut Monday and allowed only four hits while recording seven strikeouts over four scoreless innings, and he'll remain on the five-day schedule for Saturday. Godley is unlikely to have a traditional starter's workload his next few starts after throwing 53 pitches during Monday's outing, but he should continue ramping up his pitch count.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Could join rotation Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley has a chance to join Boston's rotation after impressing in his debut outing Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. He tossed four shutout innings as the primary pitcher against the Mets, allowing four hits with zero walks and seven strikeouts.

Given how decimated Boston's rotation is, Godley clearly earned a turn every fifth day, it's just a matter of whether he continues to be used as a primary pitcher or gets deployed like a traditional starter. His next appearance figures to be Saturday in Yankee Stadium.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Contract selected by Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley had his contract selected by the Red Sox and was added to the major-league roster Sunday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

The veteran right-hander missed the cut for the Opening Day roster, but he'll join the team before the third game of the season. Godley seems a likely bet to join Boston's starting rotation at some point given the team's lack of established options. Per Bill Koch of The Providence Journal, manager Ron Roenicke said, "We'll see about [Monday]. We should pitch him somewhere."

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Misses cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley did not make the 30-man roster, but could be stretched out at some point while working at the alternate training site, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

With Eduardo Rodriguez out indefinitely due to complications in his recovery from COVID-19, the Red Sox enter the season with very few established big-league starters. Godley fired three no-hit innings against the Blue Jays in Wednesday's scrimmage, and he has as much experience as any healthy Boston starter other than Nathan Eovaldi, so he will likely be heard from at some point this summer.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Three shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley fired three no-hit innings, allowing one walk and striking out two Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

The game was shortened after four-and-a-half innings due to rain, but it was an encouraging sign for Godley, who is battling for a spot in the back end of the rotation or a bulk-innings guy.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Throws two innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley pitched two innings in Saturday's intrasquad game, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Godley, who signed with the Red Sox on Friday, went straight to work the following day. He hadn't pitched since the previous Friday, so the Red Sox were not about to push him. He worked out of a bases-loaded jam in his first inning, then allowed a two-run home run to Jonathan Arauz in his second. The Red Sox will get a look at the right-hander over the next few days and gauge him for a possible rotation slot. Godley is scheduled to throw two or three innings in next Wednesday's exhibition game against Toronto.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Put to work immediately
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Goldley will pitch in Saturday's intrasquad game, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

After Godley was released by the Tigers on Monday, the Red Sox signed him Friday and will put him to work immediately. The right-hander will then pitch in an exhibition game against the Blue Jays next Wednesday. The plan is to have him throw one or two innings Saturday, then two or three against Toronto. Godley has an opt-out after the first week of the season if he's not on the major-league roster at the end of July. With Boston's starting rotation so thin, there's a good chance an experienced starter like Godley will be on the team.

Red Sox's Zack Godley: Inks minor-league deal with Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Friday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Godley was released by the Tigers on Monday, but he'll find a new home with the Red Sox with one week remaining until Opening Day. He was officially added to the team's 60-man roster and will likely report to the team's alternate training site. The right-hander should serve as organizational depth this season.

Zack Godley: Let go by Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers released Godley on Monday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

Even with the statuses of Michael Fulmer (elbow) and Daniel Norris (illness) uncertain heading into the season opener, Godley didn't garner any serious consideration for a rotation spot during summer camp. With 81 career MLB starts under his belt, Godley becomes one of the more experienced rotation arms on the open market, but expect interest in the 30-year-old to be relatively muted. Since posting a 3.37 ERA for the Diamondbacks in 2017, Godley has struggled mightily the past two seasons, compiling a 5.16 ERA and 11.0 K:BB over 270.1 innings.

Tigers' Zack Godley: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley will be a part of the Tigers' 60-man player pool this season.

Godley was not on the 40-man roster, but his experience at the MLB level makes him a logical choice for the expanded player pool. The 30-year-old will give the Tigers a veteran depth option during the abbreviated 2020 season.

Tigers' Zack Godley: Still on NRI deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley has been released and re-signed to an NRI deal with the Tigers, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

The Tigers had to re-work Godley's contract to account for later dates to opt out since spring training was suspended. He will still be in camp competing for a roster spot when things resume. Godley gave up five runs in 4.1 innings this spring, and his 5:8 K:BB was particularly troubling.

Tigers' Zack Godley: Struggles continue Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley, who allowed three earned runs while retiring just a single batter in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox, has a 19.29 ERA through three spring games.

Godley has gotten off to a rocky start with his new team, which is not helping his chances of earning a rotation spot or even a prominent bullpen role. His saving grace at this point is the fact that Detroit doesn't have a ton of proven pitching talent at the MLB level, but it'd still be nice to see Godley perform a little better heading into the regular season. He's off the fantasy radar until further notice.

December 20, 2019 09:04 PM
Tigers' Zack Godley: Signs with Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley signed with the Tigers as a non-roster invitee Friday.

Godley is looking to get back on track after struggling to a 5.97 ERA in 92 innings last season. In the rebuilding Tigers, he's found an organization with little reason not to give him plenty of chances to do so. Godley will make $1.5 million if he makes the big-league roster with a chance to earn a further $1.5 million in incentives, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. He'll have the chance to opt out if not on the 26-man roster by March 23.

Blue Jays' Zack Godley: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

Despite Godley's 5.97 ERA, it wouldn't have been a surprise if some team had claimed him in hopes of helping him recapture the magic that saw him post a 3.37 ERA and a 26.3 percent strikeout rate in 155 innings back in 2017. Instead, he'll remain with Toronto, though he'll likely have to wait until next season for his next big-league opportunity.

Blue Jays' Zack Godley: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Godley finds himself cut from his second team of the season, despite posting a respectable 3.94 ERA with Toronto after stumbling to a 6.39 mark in Arizona. His absence clears a spot for the Blue Jays to select T.J. Zeuch's contract.

September 2, 2019 05:56 PM
Blue Jays' Zack Godley: Tosses three shutout frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley threw three scoreless innings while allowing two hits and striking out two during a no-decision against the Astros on Sunday.

While Justin Verlander was throwing his shutout, the Blue Jays pitching staff nearly matched him, yielding no runs and just three hits through eight frames. Godley threw the most pitches (46) for Toronto, working the sixth, seventh and eighth innings. Godley is 4-5 with a 5.97 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 70 strikeouts in 92 innings across 33 appearances, including nine starts this season.

Blue Jays' Zack Godley: Grabs first win as Jay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley (4-5) picked up the win in Tuesday's victory over Atlanta, allowing two hits and two walks over three scoreless innings of relief while striking out two.

The right-hander entered the game in the third inning after Wilmer Font turned in another strong performance as the opener, and Godley kept Atlanta off the scoreboard to get credit for his first win with Toronto. Godley's 4.85 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB through 13 innings as a Jay are less impressive, but he should continue getting work as a long reliever/primary pitcher into September.
