The Marlins optioned Neidert to their alternate training site Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Miami doesn't plan to announce a corresponding call-up until after Wednesday's series finale against the Orioles, but the team will eventually need to add a fifth starter to the mix for this weekend's four-game set in San Francisco. Neidert had been lined up to start Sunday's series finale against the Giants, but the Marlins opted to drop him from the rotation after he was lit up for nine earned runs on 13 hits and 11 walks in 12 innings through his first three turns.
Neidert (0-1) was charged with the loss Tuesday against the Orioles after allowing five runs on five hits and a pair of walks while striking out two over three innings.
It was rough from the start, as Neidert loaded the bases in the first inning and gave up an RBI double to Rio Ruiz. He was then tagged for a pair of solo home runs by Trey Macini and Freddy Galvis in his third and final frame of the night. Notably, command continued to plague Neidert in what turned out to be his briefest start of the year. The 24-year-old issued two free passes on the night, bringing his season total to 11 walks over 12 innings. Neidert will look for his first win of the year at San Francisco on Sunday.
Neidert didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-5 extra-inning win over Atlanta, giving up three runs on five hits and four walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out three.
The right-hander tossed 42 of 76 pitches for strikes before getting the hook, but if it weren't for another big performance from Ronald Acuna, Neidert might have lasted long enough to at least qualify for his first win of the year. He'll take a 4.00 ERA and shaky 6:9 K:BB through nine innings into his next outing, set for Tuesday at home against the Orioles.
Neidert allowed one earned run on three hits and five walks while striking out three across 4.1 innings in Thursday's loss to the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.
Neidert limited the damage but faced plenty of struggles in his first big-league start. He allowed multiple batters to reach base in all but one of his full innings, mostly due to his inability to find the strike zone consistently. While he managed to dance out of danger in most cases Thursday, he'll need to clean up his control if he hopes to avoid getting roughed up in his next start -- currently projected to come Wednesday at Atlanta.
Neidert will start Thursday's game against the Mets, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Neidert is the next man up in Miami with both Sixto Sanchez (shoulder) and Elieser Hernandez (biceps) already battling injuries. He has a path to remain in the rotation until both pitchers get healthy, but he's not all that interesting for fantasy purposes outside of leagues deep enough that every rotation member is worth a look. Neidert doesn't project as anything more than a back-end starter; he struggled to a 5.05 ERA in nine starts at the Triple-A level in 2019 before allowing five runs in 8.1 innings while striking out just four batters in his big-league debut last year.
Neidert is a candidate to start Thursday in New York, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Neidert entered spring training as one of the Marlins' top rotation depth options, and Sixto Sanchez (shoulder) and Elieser Hernandez (biceps) are already hurt. Paul Campbell is the other option to start Thursday. Neidert gets by mostly on smoke and mirrors and profiles as a back-end starter or swingman.
Neidert was recalled by the Marlins on Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Neidert failed to make the Marlins' Opening Day roster but was expected to get the call when the team first needed a fifth starter in mid-April. With Elieser Hernandez (biceps) heading to the injured list, he'll get called up slightly earlier than expected and will likely get the ball Thursday against the Mets. Neidert allowed five runs in 8.1 innings of relief in his major-league debut last season, striking out just four batters. He posted a 5.05 ERA and 19.8 percent strikeout rate in nine starts at the Triple-A level in 2019.
The Marlins optioned Neidert to Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday.
Neidert stood out during spring training (2.84 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 15 strikeouts in 12.2 Grapefruit League innings), but his efforts weren't enough to beat out Trevor Rogers for the final spot in the rotation. Due to a pair of timely off days, the Marlins will be able to get by with a four-man rotation until April 14 in Atlanta, but Neidert likely won't be the first choice to join the big club when a fifth starter is needed. Instead, the Marlins will likely call up Sixto Sanchez at that time.
Neidert allowed one run on three hits and a walk over four innings in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals. He struck out five.
Entering the game in the fifth inning, the right-hander threw 54 pitches (38 strikes) as he prepares for a potentially significant role to begin the regular season. The Marlins have yet to announce whether Sixto Sanchez will be in the initial rotation, and if he gets held back Neidert is the next man up for the No. 5 spot. Even if Sanchez is deemed ready for Opening Day, his workload will be closely monitored, which could result in Neidert seeing plenty of action in long relief. Through 12.2 innings over five appearances this spring, Neidert has posted a 2.84 ERA and strong 15:3 K:BB.
The Marlins recalled Neidert from their alternate training site Wednesday.
Neidert will be available out of the bullpen for the Marlins' wild-card series with the Cubs that begins Wednesday. He'll assume the active roster spot of Jose Urena (forearm), who was ruled out for the entirety of the postseason.
Neidert was optioned to the Marlins' alternate training site Thursday.
Neidert made four relief appearances in the regular season in his first taste of major-league action, and he posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.44 WHIP over 8.1 innings. There are just four games remaining in the regular season, and it's unclear whether he could return in the postseason. Daniel Castano was recalled by the Marlins in a corresponding move.
Neidert (undisclosed) is expected to be available out of the bullpen in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Phillies after the Marlins named Braxton Garrett as the starter for the contest, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Activated from the 10-day injured list earlier in the day, Neidert went unused in the first game of the twin bill while Sixto Sanchez twirled a complete game in the Marlins' 2-1 win. Neidert was believed to be a candidate to start Game 2, but he'll instead be an option to serve as a long man or primary pitcher out of the bullpen once Garrett exits. After Sunday, the Marlins will close their regular season with 16 games in 14 days, so Neidert could get an opportunity to make his first big-league start at some point during that stretch.
Neidert (undisclosed) was activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday.
The 23-year-old was one of the Marlins' players placed on the shelf following the COVID-19 outbreak early in the season, but he's now rejoining the active roster. Neidert has been building up for a starting role at the alternate training site and could be in the mix to start Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader, though the team has yet to officially announce a starter.
Neidert (undisclosed) has been building up his arm at the Marlins' alternate training site in Jupiter and could be activated from the 10-day injured list if the team requires a spot starter next week, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Mish notes that Jose Urena, who is currently on the COVID-19 IL, is next in line to join the Miami rotation, likely Monday or Tuesday in the event that Elieser Hernandez (lat) is placed on the IL. Beginning Sept. 11, the Marlins will play seven games in four days, at which point the team will need to add a seventh and eighth starter to the rotation. Expect Neidert to rejoins the Marlins around that time to potentially make his first big-league start. The 23-year-old previously made one relief appearance before being placed on the IL, covering 2.1 scoreless innings against the Phillies back on July 25.
Neidert (undisclosed) has been placed on the 10-day injured list, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.
Neidert was among the 13 Marlins placed on the injured list ahead of the team's return to play after a COVID-19 outbreak. However, a specific reason for Neidert's placement on the injured list wasn't announced.
Neidert tossed four shutout innings in Monday's intrasquad game, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out three.
The 23-year-old right-hander remains in the mix for the Marlins' No. 5 spot in the rotation, but Neidert is more likely to wind up in long relief. A knee injury limited him to 54 innings in the minors last season, but Neidert posted a 3.24 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 154:31 K:BB through 152.2 frames for Double-A Jacksonville in 2018.
Neidert was optioned to Triple-A Wichita on Saturday, Craig Mish of SportsGrid reports.
He had a 1.50 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and a 6:0 K:BB in six innings this spring. Neidert will serve as organizational rotation depth when the season gets underway.
Neidert remains in the mix for the Marlins' No. 5 starter job, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
The 23-year-old was added to the 40-man roster in the offseason and was putting together a solid spring when the Grapefruit League schedule was suspended, posting a 1.50 ERA and 6:1 K:BB through six innings. Miami has plenty of other options to fill the role, however, and Neidert is a more likely candidate to begin the regular season at Triple-A Wichita.
Neidert was added to the Marlins' 40-man roster Wednesday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.
The 23-year-old righty struggled in his first taste of Triple-A, logging a 5.05 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 41 innings. He projects as a back-end starter and should reach the majors sometime this summer.
Neidert was placed on the minor-league injured list at Triple-A New Orleans with right knee tendinitis Monday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Neidert is off to a poor start, allowing 11 runs (10 earned) with a 7:8 K:BB in 10.1 innings over his first three starts for New Orleans this season. It's unclear if those struggles were injury-related.
