Faria signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Sunday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Faria began the 2020 season at the Brewers' alternate training site before being released by the team in September. He wasn't very effective in Milwaukee after being traded from the Rays, but the right-hander could compete for a spot on the major-league roster at some point in 2021. It's unclear whether he'll serve as a non-roster invitee during spring training.
Faria was released by the Brewers on Friday.
Faria allowed 12 runs (11 earned) in 8.2 innings for the Brewers last season after coming over in a trade from the Rays. He spent the entirety of this season stuck at the team's secondary site and was not a member of the 40-man roster. It's likely too late for him to get any big-league opportunities in the brief time remaining this season, and he'll presumably be looking for a minor-league deal this winter.
The Brewers included Faria as part of their initial 60-man roster pool released Monday.
Faria failed to distinguish himself at the big-league level between stops with the Rays and Brewers in 2019, giving up 14 runs on 28 hits and 12 walks while striking out 19 over 18.2 innings. He was bumped off the 40-man roster in January and cleared waivers, but the expanded roster pool for 2020 may allow Faria to see work for the big club. Even if that's the case, Faria likely won't be entrusted with anything but low-leverage work in his initial opportunities with Milwaukee.
Faria could be stretched out as a starter with Triple-A San Antonio if he doesn't earn a spot in the major-league bullpen to begin the season, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Following a season in which he recorded a 6.75 ERA over 18.2 innings in the majors, Faria was designated for assignment in January, but he remained in the organization after clearing waivers. It's unclear whether he'll be included in the major-league bullpen for Opening Day, but manager Craig Counsell suggested Saturday that the right-hander could operate as a starter in the minors if he begins the season there. The 26-year-old served as a starter over portions of his first two seasons in the majors before working exclusively as a reliever in 2019.
Faria cleared waivers Tuesday and was outrighted to Triple-A San Antonio, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Faria will join the Brewers' big-league camp as a non-roster invitee after being designated for assignment earlier in January. With a 6.75 ERA in 18.2 major-league innings last season, he's not particularly likely to win an Opening Day roster spot.
Faria was designated for assignment Friday.
Faria will make way on the 40-man roster for Jedd Gyorko, signed in a corresponding move Friday. Faria threw just 18.2 big-league innings last season, walking 12.6 percent of opposing batters en route to a 6.75 ERA.
Faria was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Sunday.
Faria was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Aug. 14 after surrendering three earned runs across 3.1 innings as a reliever for the Brewers. He's looked more effective in the minors, however, racking up eight strikeouts across 6.2 frames while allowing just one earned run since being optioned. He'll look to improve on his initial stint with the big-league club as a reliever to close the season.
Faria was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Wednesday.
The Brewers will swap Faria out for a fresh bullpen arm (Ray Black) after the team deployed six different relievers during Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the Twins. Since joining the Brewers, the right-hander has allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out two in 3.1 innings of relief.
Faria tossed two scoreless innings in his Brewers debut Tuesday.
Faria just joined the Brewers at the trade deadline and has pitched sparingly at the big-league level this season, but he immediately found himself in a key spot with his new club, being summoned from the bullpen to start the seventh inning with the Brewers leading by only a run. Faria was able to keep the Pirates off the scoreboard in that frame, and in the next one as well, helping earn his squad a much-needed victory. Faria's regular role has not been defined, but at the least, he made a good first impression on his new manager and teammates.
Faria was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio on Monday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.
Faria will join the Brewers for the first time since being acquired from the Rays in exchange for Jesus Aguilar last week. He tossed a scoreless inning of relief in his lone appearance for San Antonio before earning a promotion, suggesting he'll fill a bullpen role upon joining Milwaukee. Zach Davies (back) was sent to the IL in a corresponding move.
Faria will begin his Brewers stint with Triple-A San Antonio, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
The Brewers traded Jesus Aguilar for Faria in order to improve their pitching depth, but Faria will not immediately join the big club. Faria has worked as both a starter and reliever this season, and it's not yet clear what role he will work in with his new club.
Faria was traded from the Rays to the Brewers on Wednesday in exchange for Jesus Aguilar, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The Rays got the right-handed bat they were looking for in Aguilar, while Faria provides the Brewers with much needed pitching help. The 26-year-old Faria worked primarily as a starter in his first two seasons with the Rays, though he's strictly pitched out of the bullpen for Tampa Bay in 2019, compiling a 2.70 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 11:7 K:BB in 10 innings. While the righty could be a future rotation candidate, he figures to assume a spot in Milwaukee's bullpen for now. Faria is under team control for the next four seasons, though he's out of options next year.
The Rays recalled Faria from Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Faria will assume the roster spot of catcher Michael Perez, who was optioned to Triple-A following Saturday's 10-9 loss to the Blue Jays in 12 innings. The right-hander will provide a fresh arm for an overworked bullpen and will likely see his initial opportunities in mop-up situations.
Faria will be optioned to Triple-A Durham prior to Sunday's series finale at Baltimore, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Faria allowed one run over 1.1 scoreless innings during Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader, and he'll head to Triple-A with Ryan Yarbrough rejoining the big-league club. Faria has given up two runs on seven hits and six walks over eight innings with the Rays this season.
The Rays recalled Faria from Triple-A Durham ahead of Thursday's game against the Yankees, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
He'll move up to the big leagues and replace Austin Pruitt in the bullpen after Pruitt was needed for five innings in relief during Wednesday's 9-6 loss to the Orioles. Faria, who has posted a 4.47 ERA and 64:22 K:BB in 52.1 innings with Durham this season, will likely move back to the minors once the All-Star break arrives.
Faria allowed three hits and a walk while striking out two over 1.1 scoreless innings Monday against the Yankees. He was optioned to Triple-A Durham after the game, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Faria made it through Monday's outing unscathed, but the Rays have elected to send him down, likely for a fresh arm. A corresponding move has yet to be announced.
Faria was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
He will likely serve as a multi-inning reliever while up with the big club, a role that can lead to wins on good teams like the Rays. Daniel Robertson was optioned in a corresponding move.
Faria was optioned to Triple-A Durham, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
He logged two scoreless innings in Saturday's game right after getting the call, but it was apparently a short-term move. Faria would be a good candidate to work as a primary pitcher after an opener if the Rays ever have a need, but their rotation is pretty healthy at the moment.
Faria was called up by the Rays on Saturday.
Faria had a 5.40 ERA in 65 innings for the Rays last season and has a 6.35 ERA in three starts for Triple-A Durham this year. He's been mostly a starter in the past but appears to be up as a long reliever this time, as Casey Sadler was sent down in a corresponding move.
Faria was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Faria was reportedly making a push for the Rays' final bullpen spot but ultimately fell victim to roster cuts. The 25-year-old allowed four runs across 8.2 innings this spring but had a 1.15 WHIP and eight strikeouts. Faria has started 26 games over the last two seasons in Tampa Bay and should once again see the majors in 2019.
