Rangers' Luke Farrell: Rehabbing in Arizona League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell (jaw) will begin a rehab assignment with the Arizona Rookie League Rangers on Tuesday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Farrell hasn't pitched in a live game since spring training, when he suffered a fractured jaw after being struck by a line drive. While it's good to see him back in action, his lengthy absence means he'll likely need a considerable amount of time in the minor leagues to get his arm back in shape. A timetable for his return has not yet been revealed.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Lands on 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers placed Farrell (jaw) on the 60-day injured list Thursday.

The transaction opens up an extra spot on the 40-man roster and confirms that Farrell will be sidelined until at least late May while he works to regain weight and ease into a throwing program after he required surgery earlier this month to address a fractured jaw. Farrell isn't expected to fill a high-leverage role out of the Texas bullpen once he's activated.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: On mend following surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell will have wires removed from his fractured jaw Monday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Since undergoing surgery on his jaw earlier this month, Farrell has been limited to a liquid diet while the wires have been in place. Once the wires are out, he'll work to regain the weight and strength he lost over the past three weeks before resuming a throwing program. Farrell will be placed on the injured list ahead of the regular season, but it's unclear if he'll be stashed on the 10-day or 60-day IL.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Bound for injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell underwent surgery on his fractured jaw and is slated to open the season on the Rangers' injured list, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Farrell suffered the injury last weekend after being struck in the face by a line drive. He had been angling for a spot in the Opening Day bullpen after supplying a 5.17 ERA and 39:16 K:BB across 31.1 innings with the Cubs in 2018. The Rangers haven't issued a firm timeline for Farrell's return to action, but Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News suggests the southpaw will be headed to the 60-day IL, which would make him unavailable until late May. At the very least, Farrell will be withheld from baseball activities for the next 2-to-3 weeks while his jaw remains wired shut.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Set to visit specialist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell (jaw) is scheduled to a visit a specialist later in the week, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Farrell, who was diagnosed with a non-displaced jaw fracture after being hit by a line drive Saturday, saw a specialist over the weekend, though a concrete medical plan could not be determined due to the amount of swelling. He's expected to undergo a procedure later in the week to address his fractured jaw, though specifics remain unclear. He'll wait a few days for the swelling to subside before returning to the specialist, after which a timetable for his return will hopefully emerge.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Suffers broken jaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was diagnosed with a non-displaced jaw fracture after being hit by a line drive Saturday.

Farrell underwent a CT scan and X-rays and is set to see a specialist Monday. The 27-year-old is out indefinitely, with a return timeline potentially being offered as he is further evaluated.

Rangers' Luke Farrell: Struck in jaw by liner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell left Saturday's game against the Giants after getting hit in the jaw by a line drive, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The severity of the injury is not yet clear. Farrell remained down, being treated by trainers for some time, but he was able to walk off the field under his own power.

Angels' Luke Farrell: Claimed by Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Friday.

Farrell was claimed by the Angels from the Cubs in September but was designated for assignment by the team in December. He threw 31.1 innings for Chicago last season, finishing with an unimpressive 5.17 ERA.

Angels' Luke Farrell: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday.

Farrell was sent off the club's 40-man roster in order to make room for the recently acquired Matt Harvey. This marks the second time in the past few months that Farrell has been designated for assignment, the first coming in early September by the Cubs. During 20 games with Chicago last year, he logged a 5.17 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 31.1 innings.

September 3, 2018 07:08 PM
Angels' Luke Farrell: Claimed by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Monday.

Farrell, who was designated for assignment by the Cubs at the beginning of September, will report to rookie-level Orem. The 27-year-old posted a 5.17 ERA and 39:16 K:BB across 31.1 innings with the Cubs this season.

September 1, 2018 05:53 PM
Cubs' Luke Farrell: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Saturday.

Farrell and Rob Zastryzny were removed from the 40-man roster to clear space for Terrance Gore and Taylor Davis. The 27-year-old has a career 5.17 ERA in 44.1 major-league innings, though his 3.64 ERA for Triple-A Iowa could be enough for another team to claim him off waivers.

Cubs' Luke Farrell: Sent down after poor start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.

Farrell was called on to make a spot start Monday against Arizona and failed to get the job done, allowing six runs in 3.1 innings. He could return to Chicago as a spot starter or long-relief man later in the season, though his 5.28 career ERA in 44.1 major-league innings gives little reason for optimism.

Cubs' Luke Farrell: Struggles in loss Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell (3-4) was tagged with the loss Monday against the Diamondbacks, as he allowed six earned runs on six hits and two walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out two.

Farrell was thrust into duty after a doubleheader Saturday messed with the Cubs' rotation this week, and the 27-year-old struggled. With the poor outing, Farrell saw his ERA climb from 3.86 to 5.17. The righty could slide into Chicago's bullpen moving forward, though the team may also decide to send him back to Triple-A Iowa so he can continue to work as a starter.

Cubs' Luke Farrell: Confirmed to start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell will take the mound for Monday's series opener against the Diamondbacks, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Farrell was selected to toe the rubber as the Cubs are in need of a sixth starter following Saturday's doubleheader. He was initially recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday as the 26th man, but he'll hang around with the big-league club at least until Monday's tilt. In 19 appearances for Chicago this season, Farrell has pieced together a 3.86 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 37 strikeouts across 28 innings.

Cubs' Luke Farrell: Could start Monday vs. Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell could be a candidate to make a spot start Monday against the Diamondbacks, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Farrell was added to the Cubs' roster as the 26th man ahead of Saturday's doubleheader and will stick around with the big club after the team optioned reliever Dillon Maples to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday. Since Farrell went unused in relief for the twin bill, the Cubs could be saving him for Monday, when a temporary sixth starter will be needed after Chicago opened the first half with six games in five days. Farrell hasn't covered more than three innings in an appearance at the major- or minor-league level since June 2, so he would likely be held to a restricted pitch count if he receives the nod Monday.

Cubs' Luke Farrell: Added as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was shuttled to the big leagues to serve as the Cubs' 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader against St. Louis, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Farrell has appeared in 19 games for the Cubs in 2018, logging a 3.86 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 37 strikeouts across 28 innings. Look for him to serve as a middle-relief option while with the club.

July 13, 2018 06:48 PM
Cubs' Luke Farrell: Headed to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Farrell has posted a 3.86 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with a 37:14 K:BB over 28 innings this season. He'll make his way to the minor leagues despite tossing four straight scoreless appearances out of the bullpen.

June 26, 2018 07:56 PM
Cubs' Luke Farrell: Returns to Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Farrell was demoted following Saturday's spot start, but returns to the Cubs with Kris Bryant (shoulder) and Justin Hancock (shoulder) landing on the disabled list. Outside of Saturday's rough start, the 27-year-old allowed three runs (two earned) with 17 strikeouts over 11.2 innings during his recent stint in the majors.

June 24, 2018 05:04 PM
Cubs' Luke Farrell: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Alyson Footer of MLB.com reports.

Farrell made his first start of the season Saturday and struggled, allowing three earned runs in just 2.2 innings of work. The 27-year-old will now head to Triple-A after recording a 4.50 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP across 20 innings of work with the Cubs. He could get called back up at some point if the team needs a long reliever or a spot starter.

June 23, 2018 11:52 PM
Cubs' Luke Farrell: Roughed up in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farrell (2-3) allowed three earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out four across 2.2 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Reds.

Farrell made his first start of the season and quickly stumbled, allowing a two-run homer to the second batter he faced. He was forced into the rotation as the result of a doubleheader Tuesday, so he isn't likely to see many more starts throughout the season. As a member of the Cubs' bullpen, he has managed 30 strikeouts in 20 innings but has failed to record a save or hold.
