Carle signed a minor-league deal which includes an invitation to major-league camp with the Reds on Thursday.
In Carle's lone full big-league season, he looked quite good, posting a 2.86 ERA in 63 frames for Atlanta in 2018. He threw just 9.1 innings and gave up 10 runs the next year, however, and he failed to make a team's 40-man roster last season, so it's not clear he has it in him to repeat that performance. Still, the risk here for the Reds to find out whether or not he can is very low.
The Rangers released Carle on Monday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
Though Carle made six MLB appearances with the Braves in 2019, his poor results with the big club and subsequent struggles at the Triple-A level resulted in him entering 2020 without an invite to big-league spring training. Carle was still expected to claim a spot in the Triple-A Nashville bullpen, but his release now results him heading back on the open market.
The Rangers outrighted Carle to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday.
He went unclaimed off waivers after the Rangers designated him for assignment two days earlier. Carle previously appeared in six games at the big-league level with the Braves earlier this season, giving up 10 earned runs in 9.1 innings.
Carle was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Friday.
Carle was acquired by the Rangers from the Braves in late July and was removed from the 40-man roster before making a major-league appearance with his new team. The 27-year-old has struggled since the trade with seven runs allowed (six earned) on 13 hits over 6.2 innings for Triple-A Nashville.
Carle was traded from the Braves to the Rangers on Thursday for cash considerations and subsequently optioned to Triple-A Nashville.
Carle has struggled in the big leagues this season, posting a 9.64 ERA and 2.14 WHIP with a 6:9 K:BB over 9.1 innings. He'll search for a different outcome with the Rangers, though he'll begin his Texas career with the Sounds.
Carle was designated for assignment by the Braves on Wednesday.
Carle has been off the big-league roster since early May after allowing 10 runs in 9.1 innings. He's now off the 40-man roster as well after struggling to a 5.13 ERA in 33.1 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett. The transaction makes room for the Braves to select Jeremy Walker's contract.
Carle was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.
This comes after Carle was lit up for five runs on six hits across one inning of relief in Thursday's loss to the Padres. The right-hander now owns a brutal 9.64 ERA, 2.14 WHIP and 6:9 K:BB through six appearances (9.1 innings) with the Braves this season. A corresponding roster move will likely be made prior to Friday's series opener against the Marlins.
Carle was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.
Less than a month into the season, Carle is already on his fourth separate stint on the big-league roster. It wouldn't be surprising to see that pattern continue for much of the year. Jesse Biddle (thigh/groin) hit the injured list in a corresponding move.
Carle was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
Carle wasd used as the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against Cleveland and gave the Braves 3.2 scoreless innings. As a reliever with options, he could spend quite a lot of time traveling between Atlanta and Gwinnett this season.
Carle is the 26th man for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against Cleveland.
Carle was up for just two days earlier in the week, throwing one scoreless inning. He's allowed five runs in 4.2 innings so far this season.
The Braves optioned Carle to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.
His demotion clears a spot on the active roster for Mike Soroka, who was recalled from Gwinnett ahead of his scheduled spot start Thursday against the Diamondbacks. The right-hander's latest stint with the big club lasted just two days, with Carle tossing a scoreless inning in relief Tuesday in his lone appearance.
Carle was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.
Carle threw 63 innings with a 2.86 ERA for the Braves in 2018, but, as a reliever with options, it won't be surprising to see him bounce between Atlanta and Gwinnett throughout the year. Two of Carle's three outings for the Braves in the first week of the season were quite poor, so his ERA sits at 12.27 through just 3.2 frames.
Carle was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.
Carle struggled in three appearances as he allowed five runs on three hits and five walks over 3.2 innings. Starter Kevin Gausman (shoulder) was reinstated from the injured list Friday, prompting the move.
Carle gave up three runs on a hit and two walks while striking out one over 0.2 innings in Thursday's loss to the Phillies.
The right-hander entered the game with Atlanta down 3-1 and promptly turned it into a rout, serving up a three-run homer to Maikel Franco. Carle wasn't the only Braves reliever to struggle Thursday, but if he doesn't right the ship quickly in his low-leverage role, he could be among the first bullpen arms churned.
Carle gave up a solo home run and struck out a batter in two innings during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.
The right-hander has put together a strong spring, posting an 8:1 K:BB through 8.1 innings. Carle appeared to be on the bubble for a bullpen spot heading into camp, but injuries to A.J. Minter (shoulder) and Darren O'Day (forearm) have cleared a path for him to the 25-man roster, albeit in a low-leverage role.
Carle worked around a pair of walks in a scoreless inning of work to earn his first save of the season Sunday against the Phillies.
Carle entered with a one-run lead in the ninth and made things interesting before closing out the game. He walked two batters and hit another to load the bases, but he retired Wilson Ramos to end the threat. Carle got the nod to close despite the fact that Arodys Vizcaino and A.J. Minter were both available, but there's nothing to suggest he's a lock to receive the next save opportunity for the club.
Carle (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Saturday.
Carle had been out since early August due to shoulder inflammation. The Braves have extra arms up for the stretch run, but Carle's 3.15 ERA should leave him in a fairly important role.
Carle (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.
Carle has missed three weeks with shoulder inflammation. Given the relatively short length of his absence, his rehab assignment shouldn't need to be particularly long.
Carle (shoulder) will throw a live batting practice session Sunday, David O'Brien of The Athletic Atlanta reports.
Carle has been out since Aug. 7 with shoulder inflammation. He's now resumed throwing and is expected to begin a rehab assignment at some point next week.
Carle (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing, David O'Brien of The Athletic Atlanta reports.
Carle landed on the disabled list Aug. 7 with shoulder inflammation, and it turns out the right-hander will be forced to miss more than the minimum 10 days. A timetable for his return should emerge once he's able to pick up a throwing program.
