Orioles' Dillon Tate: Recalled by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Friday.

Tate was brought up to take the roster spot of Shawn Armstrong (forearm), who landed on the injured list in a corresponding move. Tate has appeared in two games with the Orioles this season, and has allowed six earned runs over five innings, good for a 10.50 ERA. Given that he threw multiple frames in both his last two appearances, Tate figures to slot into a long-relief role for the big club.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles optioned Tate to Triple-A Norfolk following Sunday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays, Rich Dubroff of reports.

Tate made his third big-league appearance Sunday, giving up a run on two hits and a walk while striking out two over an inning of relief en route to earning his first hold. The right-hander surrendered runs in each of his three outings with the Orioles and will likely need to show improved command at Triple-A before getting a call back to the big club.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Promoted to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was recalled from Double-A Bowie on Friday, Joe Trezza of reports.

Tate will join the big-league club to provide assistance out of the bullpen following Thursday night's 16-inning affair. He's posted a 3.48 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with a 30:9 K:BB over 33.2 innings at Double-A this season.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list and demoted to High-A Frederick on Monday, Rich Dubroff of reports.

Tate made two starts and three relief appearances for Double-A Bowie prior to landing on the injured list in late April. He struggled to a 6.08 ERA after posting a 5.75 ERA in seven starts for Bowie last season. He'll drop down to High-A to sort himself out, a level at which he hasn't pitched since 2017.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Placed on IL at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Double-A Bowie placed Tate on its 7-day injured list Tuesday due to an unspecified issue.

Bowie has deployed Tate as both a starter and a reliever this season, with the right-hander churning out a 6.08 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 13.1 innings over his five outings. The nature and extent of his setback aren't clear, but it's nonetheless a negative development for a pitcher who has only seen his outlook in dynasty leagues plummet since being acquired from the Yankees in the summer of 2016.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Optioned to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was sent to Double-A Bowie on Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Tate has spent the last two seasons at Double-A, although he struggled to a 5.75 ERA with 21 punchouts over 40.2 frames as a starter in 2018. He entered spring training as a reliever, but the club remains optimistic that he can develop into a reliable starter or at least a multi-inning option out of the bullpen.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: May transition to relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate has been deployed as a reliever this spring, but the Orioles haven't abandoned developing the right-hander as a rotation option, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. "I don't think we've given up on the idea of him being a starter," manager Brandon Hyde said. "He's going to be a multiple-innings guy."

All 35 of Tate's appearances over his past two seasons in the minors have come as a starter, with the right-hander turning in a 3.61 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 159:58 K:BB in 206.2 innings. The early results from his dalliance in the bullpen haven't been impressive, but working in relief may represent Tate's clearest path to the big leagues and allow his otherwise middling fastball to play up.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate (shoulder) joined Baltimore's 40-man roster Tuesday.

The Orioles snagged Tate near the end of July from the Yankees in the Zach Britton deal, but his season ended early due to shoulder soreness. He'll be protected from the Rule 5 draft following his placement on the 40-man and should be ready to go for the start of spring training.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Dealing with shoulder soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was shut down with shoulder soreness Monday, Rich Dubroff of reports.

Tate had been throwing at the Orioles' complex in Sarasota but now appears to be done for the season. It's unclear if the injury is serious enough to have any effect on his readiness for next season's spring training.

Orioles' Dillon Tate: Headliner in Britton deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was traded from the Yankees to the Orioles along with Josh Rogers and Cody Carroll in exchange for Zach Britton on Tuesday.

He is the headliner in the package, although his prospect star has faded quite a bit since the Rangers selected him with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2015 draft. Pitching prospects with that type of pedigree typically don't get traded twice before they reach Triple-A (he was dealt to New York in 2016 as the headliner in the deal that sent Carlos Beltran to Texas) if their outlook is particularly promising. He still has a slight chance to reach a high ceiling -- he will flash several plus pitches -- but he is more likely to make it as a No. 3 or No. 4 starter, or perhaps a late-inning reliever. Tate has now logged 107.2 innings at Double-A, working there with a 3.38 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 75 strikeouts in 82.2 innings this season. This trade works in Tate's favor, as he would have faced stiffer competition for a rotation spot with the Yankees, and should be given a long leash with Baltimore. He has been assigned to Double-A Bowie, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Yankees' Dillon Tate: Scratched Tuesday with trade looming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was a healthy scratch from Tuesday's game with Double-A Trenton, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Tate appears to be the centerpiece prospect for the Yankees to acquire Zach Britton from the Orioles, and the team wasn't going to risk him starting Tuesday as trade talks progress. Nothing is official at this point but the two sides seem to be closing in on an agreement.

Yankees' Dillon Tate: Assigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was sent down to the minor leagues Thursday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic New York reports.

Tate gave up just one run on four hits and struck out three across 4.0 innings this spring. He'll likely start the season at either Double-A Trenton or Triple-A Scranton.

Yankees' Dillon Tate: Working on two-seamer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate is developing a a two-seamer, Brendan Kuty of reports.

Tate was reportedly encouraged to work on the pitch by the Yankees' analytics department, who found the two-seamer to be a good fit for the young righty based on his arm angle and spin rate. A two-seamer can help a pitcher keep the ball on the ground, though that hasn't been a problem for Tate, who put up high groundball rates of 60.5 percent and 54.1 percent in short stints with High-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton last year. Missing bats seems to be Tate's real problem, as his strikeout rates were just 19.3 percent and 16.4 percent at those two stops last year. The two-seamer isn't the most obvious fit for Tate, but a new pitch can sometimes dramatically alter a pitchers' profile, so it's worth keeping an eye on the early reports this season.

Yankees' Dillon Tate: Invited to big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate has been invited to join the Yankees in spring training as a non-roster invitee.

The Yankees have a deep pitching staff and Tate has pitched just 25 innings above High-A ball, so it would be very surprising to see him win a major-league job this spring. The 23-year-old posted a solid 2.81 ERA in 83.1 innings split between High-A Tampa and Double-A Trenton last year, though he struck out just 6.8 batters per nine innings. He's likely still at least a year away from reaching the majors.

Yankees' Dillon Tate: Earns Double-A promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was promoted to Double-A Trenton on Tuesday, Sam Dykstra of reports.

The right-hander was one of many prospects the Yankees acquired via trade last summer in an attempt to rebuild their farm system, and he's only seen his stock improve since entering the organization. After delivering disappointing numbers in his two professional seasons with the Rangers, Tate certainly lived up to his high draft pedigree during his seven starts with the Yankees' Florida State League affiliate in Tampa. Over nine starts, Tate compiled a 2.62 ERA and 1.08 WHIP to go with a 46:15 K:BB over 58.1 innings. Tate does still carry some health risk and may not exhibit the requisite command to develop into a quality big-league rotation option, but his live arm will give him a chance to excel out of the bullpen if starting doesn't work out for him.

Yankees' Dillon Tate: Tosses 5.2 shutout innings in season debut at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate, 23, spun 5.2 scoreless innings Tuesday in his season debut for High-A Tampa. The 6-foot-2 righty scattered three hits and fanned five batters while walking just one.

The Yanks took a flier on Tate in acquiring him from Texas last season, as the 2015 first-round pick struggled with injury and inconsistency while with the Rangers organization. It remains to be seen if Tate can stay on the field and deliver, but this is certainly a step in the right direction.

Yankees' Dillon Tate: Close to returning to game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate (shoulder) is "close" to being assigned to a full-season affiliate, per Yankees farm director Gary Denbo, Josh Norris of Baseball America reports.

He is currently pitching in extended spring training while he rehabs a shoulder injury. Tate is still something of a mystery, as the Rangers tried to change his mechanics and then traded him to the Yankees when the results were poor. The Yankees have had a lot of recent success with maximizing the abilities of their pitching prospects, so it is possible that Tate's stock could take off once he starts pitching this year, presumably at Low-A or High-A.

Yankees' Dillon Tate: Traded to Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was traded to the Yankees by the Rangers on Monday in exchange for Carlos Beltran, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

Tate was the Rangers' first-round pick (fourth overall) in the 2015 draft. He's struggled with his control so far in 2016, posting a 5.12 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with 55 strikeouts in 65 innings. When Tate was drafted, there was talk of him potentially being a high-leverage bullpen arm in the big leagues. Due to his struggles so far this season as a starter, it wouldn't be surprising to see that come true with the Yankees. That said, New York will most likely send Tate to Low-A Charleston and use him as a starter initially.

Rangers' Dillon Tate: Activated off disabled list Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was activated off the disabled list at Low-A Hickory on Thursday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Tate had been out since April 20 with a hamstring strain, but he's feeling well enough to return to the Hickory rotation. The right-hander hadn't allowed a run and struck out 16 batters in 10.2 innings pitched, so he'll try to continue this torrid pace upon his return.

Rangers' Dillon Tate: Lands on DL with strained hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tate was placed on the minor league DL Wednesday with a right hamstring strain, the Fort Worth Start-Telegram's Stefan Stevenson reports.

Fortunately the young flamethrower's injury is to his lower half, but the injury will still cost him some time. He had not allowed an earned run in 10.2 innings (two starts) with Low-A Hickory, and had recorded 16 strikeouts in the process, so Tate's overall dynasty league value is still trending up, despite the injury.
