Lail signed a minor-league deal with the Mariners on Thursday, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.
Lail became a free agent in mid-October after refusing an outright assignment to the minors, but he'll wind up in the Mariners' minor-league system after all. The righty recorded a decent 4.41 ERA in 16.1 innings for the White Sox and Mariners last season, though he struck out just 16.9 percent of opposing batters while walking 9.9 percent.
Lail became a free agent Monday after exercising his right to refuse an outright assignment to the minors.
Lail's 4.41 ERA in 16.1 innings this season for the White Sox and Mariners was decent enough, but it took a .200 BABIP and a 93.8 percent strand rate to get there. His 7.35 FIP tells a very different story. As a 27-year-old with an unimpressive 5.21 career ERA in 19 major-league innings, he'll likely be looking for a minor-league deal this winter.
Lail allowed three earned runs on four hits over four innings during the Mariners' loss to the Athletics in the second game of a doubleheader Monday. He struck out one and did not factor into the decision.
The right-hander ate some innings in what was essentially treated as a bullpen game by manager Scott Servais. Lail did surrender a pair of home runs for the second straight outing, as he'd seen two Giants also leave the yard against him during his previous trip to the mound last Tuesday in San Francisco. Lail has shuttled between the alternate training site and the big-league club on multiple occasions since being claimed off waivers from the White Sox on Aug. 10, and that process could repeat itself before the regular season concludes.
Lail was recalled by the Mariners on Friday.
Lail will return to the Mariners' bullpen after being sent to the alternate training site Wednesday. The right-hander had a rough outing in his last appearance but has been relatively effective otherwise as he carries a 4.82 ERA and 1.29 WHIP over 9.1 innings this year.
Lail was optioned to the alternate training site Wednesday.
Lail surrendered four runs on five hits over 2.2 innings during Tuesday's contest, and he'll head to the alternate training site in favor of a fresh arm. The 27-year-old gave up only one run over 6.2 innings prior to Tuesday's outing, so he should rejoin the Mariners later on in September.
Lail was added to the Mariners' active roster Friday.
Lail was claimed off waivers earlier in the week after he was designated for assignment by the White Sox. He'll now join Seattle's bullpen, likely as a lower-leverage arm. The right-hander has been inconsistent over a limited sample of action in the majors.
Lail was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Monday.
Lail was cast off the White Sox's 40-man roster Saturday, but he'll claim a spot in Seattle's bullpen going forward. The right-hander has a limited sample in major-league action but was effective in one relief appearance with Chicago this year, tossing 1.1 scoreless innings while giving up two hits and striking out one. He should pitch mainly in lower-leverage situations with the Mariners.
Lail was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Saturday.
Lail was effective in one relief appearance after his contract was selected Tuesday, tossing 1.1 scoreless innings while giving up two hits and no walks and striking out one during Friday's contest. However, he'll once again lose his spot on the 40-man roster to make room for Zack Burdi and Drew Anderson on the active squad.
Lail's contract was selected by the White Sox on Tuesday.
Lail will take the roster spot that had belonged to Carlos Rodon (shoulder), who landed on the injured list in a corresponding move. He's been almost exclusively a reliever over the last two seasons, though, so he won't be taking Rodon's place in the rotation and will be presumably ticketed for low-leverage work.
Lail will be part of the White Sox's player pool this season, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Lail isn't part of the team's main group but will be one of 16 players working out at a satellite camp. The 26-year-old will give the White Sox some bullpen depth this season but is unlikely to be called upon to fill a significant role, as he's thrown just 2.2 big-league innings and owns a poor 5.21 ERA in 321 career Triple-A frames.
Lail signed with the White Sox as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Lail made his big-league debut for the Yankees last season, allowing three runs in 2.2 innings. In 15.2 innings at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, he struggled to a 7.47 ERA.
Lail cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.
Lail was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Wednesday, but he'll remain with the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 26-year-old has a 3.97 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 11:1 K:BB over 11.1 innings for the RailRiders.
Lail was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Wednesday.
After being demoted to the Triple-A level Monday, Lail was removed from the 40-man roster in order to make room for Ryan Dull, who was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move. In 42 innings at the minor-league level this season, Lail carries an ERA of 2.79 with a 55:13 K:BB, but he failed to convert that into major-league production during his only appearance with the Yankees.
Lail picked up a hold after allowing three runs on two hits and a walk while striking out two over 2.2 innings in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against Baltimore. He was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after the game.
Lail's big-league debut didn't go as smoothly as he would've liked, but he still secured a hold in an 11-8 victory. Considering he recorded eight outs Monday, the Yankees figure to call up some fresh arms Tuesday.
Lail's contract was purchased from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.
The 26-year-old reliever is set to make his big league debut after climbing from Double-A to Triple-A. Lail logged a 2.79 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 55:13 K:BB in 42 innings in the minors this season. He should work in low-leverage situations.
Lail was sent back to minor league camp Sunday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Lail struggled at spring training as he gave up four runs (two earned) in just three innings of action. Look for him to return to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to try improving upon last season's 5.07 ERA and 1.38 WHIP.
