Kyle Barraclough: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough elected free agency Tuesday.

Barraclough evidently wasn't going to play a role in San Diego this season, so he'll wind up looking for work elsewhere. The 30-year-old owns a solid 3.53 ERA in 252.1 career big-league innings, but he slipped to a 5.61 mark last year, making him unlikely to be a particularly appealing candidate on the open market.

Padres' Kyle Barraclough: Moved to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough was optioned to minor-league camp Wednesday.

Barraclough signed with the Padres in December and had a chance to earn a spot in the big-league bullpen, but he struggled with a 13.50 ERA and 2.25 WHIP in Cactus League play. Once a promising high-leverage reliever with the Marlins, Barraclough will start the season in the minors and attempt to earn his way back to the major-league level.

Padres' Kyle Barraclough: Inks minors deal with San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough signed a minor-league contract Tuesday with the Padres that includes an invitation to spring training, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

Barraclough elected free agency after being designated for assignment at the end of October, and he'll receive his next opportunity in San Diego. The 29-year-old never got his feet under him in 2019, struggling to a 5.61 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 40:21 K:BB over 33.2 innings between the Nationals and Giants. Barraclough was a solid bullpen piece for the Marlins as recently as 2017, so he could carve out a role in the Friars' bullpen if he can turn things around.

Kyle Barraclough: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Sacramento but elected to become a free agent Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

Barraclough was expected to be a part of the solution for the Nationals' bullpen entering the 2019 season after he was acquired from the Marlins, but he delivered a 6.66 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB over 25.2 innings before he was traded to the Giants. The 29-year-old's previous success should lead to some interested teams in free agency, but he could be forced to settle for a minor-league deal in 2020.

Giants' Kyle Barraclough: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough was designated for assignment by the Giants on Wednesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 29-year-old recorded a career-worst 5.61 ERA with a 1.75 WHIP over 33.2 innings pitched last season between the Nationals and Giants, and he now finds himself off the 40-man roster. Given his major-league experience and relative success in the past, it wouldn't be surprising to see a team claim him off waivers, but his struggles to limit baserunners over the past two seasons may cause some concern. Left-hander Tyler Anderson was claimed off waivers from the Rockies in a corresponding move.

Giants' Kyle Barraclough: Gets callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants selected Barraclough's contract from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

With 11 saves and 75 holds to his name over parts of five big-league seasons, Barraclough brings ample experience to the San Francisco bullpen, but the ugly form he displayed with the Nationals earlier in 2019 makes it unlikely that he'll capture a meaningful setup role right off the bat. Despite having a need for reliable relief arms, Washington couldn't justify keeping Barraclough around after he posted a 6.66 ERA and 1.75 WHIP across his 33 appearances.

Giants' Kyle Barraclough: Sticks with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Barraclough was designated for assignment by the Giants on Thursday but will remain with the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 29-year-old has endured a season to forget in the majors with a 6.66 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB over 25.2 innings.

Giants' Kyle Barraclough: Dropped from 40-man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough was designated for assignment by the Giants on Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

The Giants are trying to pass Barraclough through waivers less than a week after claiming him from the Nationals. The right-hander has struggled at the big-league level this season, posting a 6.66 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB in 25.2 innings. This move frees up a 40-man spot for Fernando Abad.

Giants' Kyle Barraclough: Claimed by San Fran
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Friday.

Barraclough was designated for assignment by the Nationals earlier in the week and will now make his way to the west coast. The 29-year-old had a 6.66 ERA and 30:12 K:BB over 25.2 innings with Washington and will report to Triple-A Sacramento for his new club.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: DFA'd by Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough was designated for assignment by Washington on Tuesday, Jamal Collier of reports.

Barraclough was booted off the 40-man roster to make room for Asdrubal Cabrera, who was signed by the Nationals on Monday. Barraclough will now be subjected to waivers after posting a 6.66 ERA with 30 strikeouts over 25.2 innings in the big leagues this season.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Optioned to minors after loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough was optioned to Double-A Harrisburg on Saturday.

Barraclough entered Friday's game to face Justin Turner with two outs in the eighth inning with the score tied. After falling behind in the count, the 29-year old surrendered a three-run homer before getting Cody Bellinger to pop out. The righty reliever only faced two batters in his lone appearance since returning from a forearm injury that landed him on the injured list in June. He now owns a career-worst 6.66 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in his first year in Washington. Adrian Sanchez was called up in a corresponding move.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Returns to big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough was recalled from Double-A Harrisburg on Friday.

Barraclough was activated off the injured list and sent to Harrisburg during the All-Star break and returns to the Nationals after allowing two runs over 6.2 Eastern League frames. The 29-year-old was having the worst year of his major-league career with a 6.39 ERA and 1.74 WHIP in 32 outings prior to his demotion.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Activated and optioned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough (forearm) was activated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Double-A Harrisburg on Wednesday, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.

Barraclough was expected to be back in Washington after the All-Star break. That could still happen, though it's not clear why the team wouldn't simply leave him on a rehab assignment if the plan is to promote him soon. His 6.39 ERA in 25.1 big-league innings isn't exactly a ringing endorsement for a spot on the big-league roster, so it's possible he remains in the minors for an extended period.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough threw a scoreless inning rehabbing for the Nationals' GCL affiliate Thursday, striking out one and giving up two hits.

Barraclough will be back in Washington over the All-Star break, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports. He's expected to make a few more rehab outings at a different affiliate and could be back in action once the break ends.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Tosses bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough (forearm) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Barraclough has been on the shelf since June 16 with radial nerve irritation in his right forearm. Wednesday's mound session is a step in the right direction for the right-hander, though he's slated to report to the Nationals' spring training facilities following Thursday's series finale in Miami to continue rehabbing, suggesting a return isn't imminent.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with radial nerve irritation in his right forearm.

Barraclough allowed three runs on three hits while recording only one out Saturday, and the forearm issue could help explain his struggles. The 29-year-old currently has no timeline for his return but will be eligible to be activated June 26.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Stuck with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough (0-1) took the loss Wednesday, getting charged with two runs on a hit and a walk over two-thirds of an inning while striking out one as the Nationals fell to the Mets.

The right-hander entered the game to begin the eighth inning and protect a one-run lead, but after he gave up a double and a walk to put the tying run in scoring position, Barraclough gave way to closer Sean Doolittle, who promptly fell apart and allowed both inherited runners to score -- plus four more. Barraclough now has a 5.40 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 21:10 K:BB through 18.1 innings, but despite his weak numbers he'll likely remain in a setup role for now given the Nats' lack of better options.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Picks up third hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough gave up two hits and struck out two in two-thirds of an inning to record his third hold of the season in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

The former Marlin has found a groove, as seven of the last nine outs he's racked up have come via strikeout. Barraclough's 1.54 ERA looks sharp, but his shaky control (seven walks in 11.2 innings) has left him with a 1.63 WHIP. Still, his current form -- and the struggles of the rest of the Nats' bullpen -- has him in a setup role at the moment.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Another ineffective outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough gave up a hit and recorded two outs via strikeout to blow his second save of the season in Friday's extra-inning loss to the Pirates.

He entered the game with two runners on and one out in the eighth inning to protect a 2-1 lead, and Barraclough promptly gave up a two-run single to Starling Marte. Barraclough has excelled at throwing other Nats relievers under the bus so far this season -- his 1.50 ERA and 7:3 K:BB through six innings look superficially solid, but he's allowed all seven of the inherited runners he's been given to score, exacerbating the team's bullpen woes. Until manager Dave Martinez has better options available, though, expect Barraclough to continue being used in fairly high-leverage situations.

Nationals' Kyle Barraclough: Stumbles against Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barraclough gave up two solo home runs and walked a batter in 0.2 innings during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

While Sean Doolittle's meltdown later in the game drew most of the attention, Barraclough's own struggles set the stage for it. The right-hander had been cruising this spring before this outing, posting a 0.00 ERA and 5:2 K:BB through his first six innings, and if Saturday's usage is any indication, he'll begin the regular season as the Nats' seventh-inning setup man ahead of Trevor Rosenthal and Sean Doolittle, a role that could make Barraclough a valuable source of holds.
