by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Twins' Luke Farrell: Bound for MiLB camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins reassigned Farrell to their minor-league camp Thursday.

Farrell was one of seven players sent back to the Twins' alternate site as Minnesota trimmed down its group at big-league camp to 36 men. The 29-year-old made four relief appearances for Texas in 2020, giving up five earned runs over 5.1 innings.

Twins' Luke Farrell: Lands minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Thursday as a non-roster invitee, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Farrell elected free agency in early November after he was outrighted to the minors by the Rangers. He'll be invited to spring training with the Twins in 2021, where he should compete for a spot as a low-leverage reliever. The right-hander made four relief appearances for Texas last season, posting an 8.44 ERA and 1.88 WHIP over 5.1 innings.

Luke Farrell: Joins free-agent pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell elected free agency Sunday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

Farrell opted to hit the open market after the Rangers outrighted him to Triple-A Nashville over the weekend. The 29-year-old right-hander made four appearances out of Texas' bullpen in 2020, giving up five earned runs and striking out eight over 5.1 innings.

October 30, 2020 03:40 PM
Rangers' Luke Farrell: Outrighted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minors Friday.

Farrell appeared in four games during 2020 and gave up five runs on five hits with eight strikeouts and five walks over 5.1 innings. The right-hander figures to be in big-league camp at spring training.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Back at alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers optioned Farrell to their alternate training site Sunday.

Farrell was dropped from the active roster after joining the Rangers as the 29th man for their doubleheader Saturday with the Athletics. The 29-year-old appeared out of the bullpen in the second game of the twin bill, striking out two over two scoreless, no-hit innings.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Up as extra man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was recalled to serve as the 29th man for Saturday's doubleheader against Oakland.

Farrell has made three relief appearances this season and hasn't done much with them, allowing five runs in 3.1 innings of work. If he makes an appearance Saturday, it will likely be in a low-leverage role.

September 1, 2020 07:36 PM
Rangers' Luke Farrell: Sent to secondary site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday and sent to the Rangers' alternate training site.

Farrell made three appearances for the Rangers early in the season, allowing five runs in 3.1 innings of work. If he returns at some point down the stretch, it will likely be in a low-leverage role.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was placed on the injured list Tuesday after coming in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, though he has tested negative to this point, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Farrell was optioned to the Rangers' alternate training site Thursday, but he'll now be sidelined while continuing to undergo testing. The right-hander gave up five runs on five hits and four walks over 3.1 innings to begin the season.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Cast off active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers optioned Farrell to their alternate training site Thursday.

Farrell showed the ability to make bats miss with six strikeouts in his three appearances out of the Texas bullpen, but he looked rough otherwise, giving up five runs on five hits and four walks over 3.1 innings. With the Rangers needing to reduce their active roster from 30 to 28 men ahead of Thursday's deadline, Farrell's demotion doesn't come as a major surprise.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Allows run in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out two over one inning in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to Oakland.

Farrell was talked up during a scoreless spring training and summer camp as a potential impact reliever, but the right-hander has allowed runs in all three appearances thus far. He's given up five runs on five hits, four walks, a hit batter and two wild pitches over 3.1 innings.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Allows first run of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell allowed a run during Friday's intrasquad game, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

The run was the first Farrell allowed in 2020. He threw 7.2 scoreless innings during spring training and added another three scoreless in summer camp before Friday's game. As for right-handed relievers, Jonathan Hernandez and his upper-90s fastball grabbed the early bullpen headlines, but he's unproven at the big-league level. Farrell doesn't overpower like Hernandez, but he's been very good for Texas since returning from a fractured jaw in the second half of 2019.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Worked on curveball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell spent the shutdown working primarily on his curveball, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Farrell used the hook on day one of summer camp, striking out both Willie Calhoun and Danny Santana on full counts during a simulated game. The right-hander had a strong spring training and is likely to earn a roster spot as a middle reliever and potential opener if needed.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Has impressive spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell allowed two hits and three walks while striking out nine over 7.2 scoreless innings in spring training.

Farrell led all Texas relievers in spring innings and, along with Nick Goody, was a Cactus League star out of the bullpen. The right-hander made it back from a fractured jaw and concussion in 2019, posting a 2.70 ERA over 13.1 innings during the final weeks of the season. His strong camp could buy him a roster spot when MLB eventually begins play, particularly if rosters are allowed to expand to 29 for the first month.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Allows one run as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell allowed one run on one hit in two innings of work. He didn't record a strikeout and didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 9-4 win over the Yankees.

Farrell allowed a triple to Aaron Judge in the first inning, and then surrendered the run on Brett Gardner's sacrifice fly. Farrell has been solid with a 2.70 ERA and 0.68 WHIP with 12 strikeouts over 13.1 innings in nine appearances this season.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: To work as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
