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.
Faria, who is likely competing with Jalen Beeks for the final bullpen spot, allowed two earned runs on five hits across two innings in a 5-5 Grapefruit League tie with the Twins on Friday. He struck out one.
Despite the so-so final line, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports that Faria's two runs came on back-to-back infield singles, and that the right-hander came away pleased with his location after getting 34 of his 50 pitches into the strike zone. Faria came into spring after shedding approximately 15 pounds this season, and he's been solid while generating eight strikeouts and a respectable 1.15 WHIP across 8.2 innings over four appearances (one start).
Faria allowed an earned run on a hit and a walk over three innings in a 10-4 Grapefruit League win over the Pirates on Sunday. He also recorded a strikeout and now has a 2.70 ERA and 0.75 WHIP through three spring appearances.
The 25-year-old raised plenty of hopes with a 2017 rookie campaign in which he generated a solid 3.43 ERA and 1.18 WHIP to go along with 84 strikeouts over 86.2 innings. He then endured a rocky sophomore season, with the ERA and WHIP ballooning to 5.40 and 1.43, respectively. Faria is offering reason for optimism again this spring, however, as he looks to carve out an Opening Day spot on a staff where his experience as both starter and reliever would be especially valued. Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that manager Faria is making an impression on his most important observer, manager Kevin Cash. "Stuff looked good. Breaking ball off the fastball looked good," Cash said. "He's had a nice spring so far. That's really, really encouraging. That's something that we focused on in the offseason and kind of the messaging to him, that last year is last year, and he's taken that and kind of run with that and really done some good things for us."
Faria (4-4) gave up three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out two in 2.1 innings Tuesday against the Yankees. He took the loss.
He had worked exclusively in relief since rejoining the Rays as a September callup but was tabbed as the starter in this contest. Faria had been limited to no more than three innings in any of his three appearances this month, so while he was more stretched out than most of the Rays' favored openers, fantasy owners certainly shouldn't have been expecting Faria to go deep enough to qualify for a win. Of course, it didn't help that he wasn't effective in his return to the rotation. Faria could start again Sunday against the Blue Jays in the final game of the season. His role for 2019 is unclear, but he obviously hasn't endeared himself to fantasy owners with a 5.40 ERA and 50:33 K:BB in 65 innings this season.
Faria will start Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
It was expected that the Rays would use an opener Tuesday to cover one or two innings before giving way to the bullpen, but Faria should offer the team more length at the beginning of the contest. The 25-year-old has made 11 starts with the big club this season, but he's worked exclusively in relief since rejoining the Rays as a September callup. Faria has been limited to no more than three innings in any of his three appearances this month, so though he'll be more stretched out than most of the Rays' favored openers, it's still expected he'll face a restricted pitch count in the outing. If Faria fares well in his return to a starting role, he could get another turn in the Rays' season finale Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Faria allowed two earned runs on five hits over three innings in the Rays' loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
The outing marked Faria's return to the big leagues following an Aug. 15 demotion. The right-hander performed well with Triple-A Durham before his Tuesday recall, but some of the issues that had led to struggles earlier in the season resurfaced Wednesday. Faria could see his role vary for what remains of the regular season, as both spot starts and relief appearances are very much within the range of possibility.
Faria joined the Rays in Toronto on Monday and is expected to be formally recalled from Triple-A Durham ahead of Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
After showing shaky control over his three appearances with the Rays upon being activated from the disabled list July 31 after a two-month absence due to an oblique injury, Faria was sent to Durham to iron out his mechanics. The 25-year-old responded well to the demotion, giving up just three runs (two earned) while posting an 18:5 K:BB across 16.1 innings. Faria will likely be deployed in long relief initially as he rejoins Tampa Bay, but he could end up picking up a start or two before the end of the month if the Rays want to add another arm to complement Blake Snell and Tyler Glasnow, the only full-time members of the rotation.
Faria was optioned to Triple-A Durham following Wednesday's win over the Yankees, Juan Toribio of The Athletic Tampa Bay reports.
Faria was sent back to the minors after tossing 3.1 innings Wednesday, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out two. The move frees up a roster spot for Tommy Pham, who is set to be activated from the disabled list prior to Thursday's series finale. Faria should be back up with the big club when another fresh arm is needed.
