Tolliver signed a minor-league deal with the Mariners on Saturday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Tolliver was released by the the Astros last weekend, and the Mariners will add him as organizational bullpen depth. He has a 4.66 ERA in 9.2 career MLB innings, but was awful at Triple-A this year, posting a 7.13 ERA and more walks (33) than strikeouts (28) in 35.1 innings.
Tolliver was released from his minor-league contract by the Astros on Saturday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Tolliver, who was a waiver claim of the Astros last winter, compiled a 7.13 ERA and issued more walks (33) than strikeouts (28) in 35.1 innings at Triple-A Fresno.
Tolliver was outrighted to Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Tolliver was removed from the 40-man roster after posting an 8.44 ERA over 26.2 innings of relief with Triple-A Fresno. He received five innings of relief work with the Astros earlier this season but will move forward with Fresno for the remainder of the year.
Tolliver was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Tolliver was only up with the big club for three days to provide a fresh arm out of the bullpen before the Astros required another starter. He ended up making two appearances, giving up one run on two hits and two walks over one inning. Joe Musgrove was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move and will start Wednesday against the Braves.
Tolliver was recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Sunday.
Tolliver was up with the Astros back in May and tossed four innings of one-run ball in his only appearance. It hasn't gone as smoothly at the Triple-A level, however, as the lefty owns an 8.14 ERA across 20 appearances. He'll head back to Houston nonetheless, giving the Astros an extra option in the bullpen, particularly against left-handed hitters.
Tolliver was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Sunday.
The 29-year-old lefty held his own Sunday after starter Joe Musgrove was shelled by the Indians. Tolliver gave up two hits and one earned run while fanning five batters over four innings. However, the Astros opted to send him down after his strong outing. The club will announce a corresponding move Monday.
Tolliver was recalled from Triple-A Fresno on Saturday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Tolliver provides bullpen depth and a second left-handed reliever while an established reliever takes the rotation spot of DL-bound Dallas Keuchel (neck). The left-hander compiled a 5.79 ERA over 4.2 innings with the Orioles last year, but has provided a steady arm in the minors this season, posting a 2.70 ERA and a .152 BAA in 10 appearances with Fresno. With Keuchel only expected to miss one start, Tolliver's stay could be a short one, so expect him to be used exclusively in low-leverage situations.
Tolliver (abdomen) has returned to action for Triple-A Fresno and has a 2.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 7:8 K:BB in nine innings out of the bullpen.
He missed a couple weeks with abdominal soreness and has excelled at preventing runs since returning. However, his 20 percent walk rate is pretty alarming, and he will need to get his control ironed out before returning to the big leagues.
Tolliver was placed on the 7-day minor-league disabled list with abdominal soreness, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Tolliver, a left-handed reliever who is on the 40-man roster, is not expected to be out long. In five games for Triple-A Fresno, Tolliver has allowed two runs on three hits and six walks while striking out five in 6.2 innings.
Tolliver was optioned to minor league camp Wednesday, Julia Morales of ROOT Sports reports.
The results for Tolliver in six Cactus League appearances were less than stellar (seven earned runs in 4.2 innings), but at least he had a 5:1 K:BB. A waiver acquisition in early December, he will need to hold his own at Triple-A to begin the year to maintain his spot on the 40-man roster.
Tolliver was claimed off waivers by the Astros on Monday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.
This marks the second time Tolliver has been plucked off waivers since September, as two teams now have deemed him unworthy of a 40-man roster spot. The left-hander's numbers in the minor leagues were solid -- he struck out 42 batters and only allowed 11 runs across 40.1 innings split between Double-A and Triple-A last season -- but his lack of control will likely keep him out of high-leverage innings.
Tolliver was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Saturday, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.
The O's ruled Tolliver out for a September promotion and subsequently designated him for assignment, but the Angels have deemed him worthy of a spot on their 40-man roster. While Triple-A Salt Lake's season is still going on, Tolliver figures to join the Angels' expanded major league roster right away to bolster their bullpen depth.
Tolliver (hamstring) was designated for assignment Wednesday.
In order to make room for the newly-acquired Kyle Lobstein on the 40-man roster, Tolliver was designated for assignment. Tolliver has been a solid reliever over his 11 games at Triple-A Norfolk, posting a 1.42 ERA and 1.34 WHIP over 12.2 innings, striking out 16 batters along the way.
Tolliver was sent to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.
Tolliver allowed two hits over two-thirds of an inning in his only outing since being recalled on June 22, and that will be it for him for the time being. Left-hander T.J. McFarland, who pitched two scoreless innings Saturday as the 26th man for the team's doubleheader, is expected to take Tolliver's spot on the roster, but no official move has been announced yet.
Tolliver was recalled by the Orioles on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.
With veteran Brian Duensing (elbow) heading to the DL, the Orioles add another left-hander out of the pen with the promotion of Tolliver to the active roster. Tolliver was effective during his brief stint with the Orioles in late May except for a three-run meltdown against the Red Sox on May 30. He figures to pitch in the middle innings as a lefty specialist during his stint with Baltimore.
Tolliver was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday, Rich Dubroff of CSN Mid Atlantic reports.
The Orioles swapped out lefty relievers Wednesday by optioning Tolliver and recalling T.J. McFarland from Triple-A Norfolk. Tolliver performed ably in three of his four outings during his stint with the big league club, but his meltdown that resulted in three runs over .2 innings Monday may have forced manager Buck Showalter's hand. He'll head back to Triple-A, but he could return to the Orioles down the line if they need another lefty out of the bullpen.
Tolliver allowed three runs on two hits and a walk while retiring two batters against the Red Sox Monday.
This was Tolliver's third MLB appearance after being promoted from Double-A to take Brian Matusz's spot as a left-handed specialist. The Orioles have T.J. McFarland working his way back from an injury in Triple-A and Tolliver's roster spot could be in jeopardy if he has another difficult outing. That said, it is important to keep in mind that he was facing a powerful Red Sox offense Monday.
Tolliver's contract was selected by the Orioles on Tuesday and he will be available out of the bullpen for their series opener against the Astros, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.
With Brian Matusz being traded to the Braves and subsequently DFA'd, the Orioles needed to add a left-handed reliever to the bullpen. Tolliver, a southpaw, has notched a 2.42 ERA with 25 strikeouts and eight walks across 26.0 innings at Double-A Bowie this season. He figures to serve as the Orioles' new left-handed specialist out of the pen with Matusz out of the picture.
