Red Sox's Jeffrey Springs: Recalled Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs, along with Robert Stock, were recalled from the Red Sox's alternate training site Saturday to take the spots of Brandon Workman and Heath Hembree, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Workman and Hembree were traded to the Phillies on Friday, which opened up a few spots on the team's 28-man roster. Springs struggled in relief earlier in the season -- he gave up eight runs in 4.2 innings -- and figures to only appear in low-leverage situations for the Red Sox.

Red Sox's Jeffrey Springs: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs was optioned to the Red Sox's alternate training site Tuesday.

Springs pitched inconsistently over four appearances with Boston this season, and he'll head to alternate camp after giving up three runs over 1.1 innings Monday. Right-hander Robert Stock was recalled to take Springs' place in the major-league bullpen.

Red Sox's Jeffrey Springs: Gives up two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs allowed five runs on four hits and one walk while striking out two over 1.1 innings in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Mets.

Springs entered as the bulk-innings pitcher but gave up bulk runs instead. He served up a two-run homer that left Pete Alonso's bat at 116.3 mph in the third inning then a three-run shot to Dominic Smith an inning later. Boston's plan to get by with openers and bulk-inning pitchers for the fourth and fifth slots in the rotation didn't begin well. Springs and Josh Osich put the Red Sox in an early 7-0 hole from which they could not dig out.

Red Sox's Jeffrey Springs: Added to rotation mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs is competing for one of the open spots in Boston's rotation, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Interested observers can add Springs to the list of candidates to potentially fill the empty spots at the back end of Boston's rotation. The left-hander dominated Red Sox hitters at times during Friday's intrasquad game, leaving manager Ron Roenicke impressed. "He's in that mix for sure," the manager said Friday. "I don't want to put the names of the other guys. There are four or five guys who can be in that role. We'll see how they pitch, and we know the history they have so we'll make the decision on those two things." As of now, in light of the uncertainty about Eduardo Rodriguez (illness) and Collin McHugh (elbow), the rotation shapes up as Nathan Eovaldi, Martin Perez and Ryan Weber as the top three. The Red Sox may name permanent starters to the Nos. 4 and 5 spots, or use guys like Springs and Chris Mazza as versatile multi-inning options that can serve as starters, openers or multi-inning bulk pitchers. Roenicke mentioned additional pitchers that could get bulk use every fourth and fifth spot through the rotation, including Colten Brewer, Matt Hall, Kyle Hart, Brian Johnson and Mike Shawaryn.

Red Sox's Jeffrey Springs: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

With Springs, Matt Hall and Chris Mazza all heading to the minors, and presuming Collin McHugh (elbow) his healthy, it appears either Ryan Weber or Brian Johnson will open the season as Boston's fifth starter. The 27-year-old Springs struggled across 25 relief appearances with the Rangers in 2019, posting a 6.40 ERA, 1.89 WHIP and 32:23 K:BB in 32.1 innings.

Red Sox's Jeffrey Springs: Heading to Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs was traded from the Rangers to the Red Sox on Wednesday in exchange for Sam Travis.

Springs was designated for assignment by the Rangers earlier Wednesday, but he'll now join Boston's 40-man roster. The southpaw struggled at the major-league level last season, recording a 6.40 ERA with a 1.89 WHIP over 32.1 innings. Left-hander Bobby Poyner was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs was designated for assignment on Wednesday.

Springs was already designated for assignment once by the Rangers this offseason back in mid-September, and he was subsequently released and re-signed by the team. It remains to be seen what will happen with him this time around. Todd Frazier was signed in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Returning to Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs signed a one-year contract with the Rangers on Friday.

Springs was sent to the open market after being non-tendered at the beginning of December, but he's since been brought back to the Rangers. He'll likely handle mid-to-low leverage innings after struggling to a 6.40 ERA and 1.89 WHIP with a 32:23 K:BB over 32.1 frames a year ago.

Jeffrey Springs: Officially becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs was non-tendered by the Rangers on Monday.

Springs was designated for assignment by Texas earlier in the day, and he'll become a free agent after failing to receive a contract.

Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Monday.

Springs experienced some struggles in his second year of major-league work in 2019 as he posted a 6.40 ERA and 1.89 WHIP over 32.1 innings. The southpaw now owns a 4.90 ERA over two seasons in the majors, and it's unclear whether a he'll be able to gain a major-league roster spot given his inconsistency on the mound. Right-hander Jimmy Herget was claimed off waivers by the Rangers in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Activated from injury list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs (biceps) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list ahead of Sunday's 11-3 loss to the Mariners. He tossed 1.1 scoreless innings in relief, giving up one hit and a walk while striking out two.

While he was solid in his return from the IL, Springs submitted a lowly 6.23 ERA and 1.85 WHIP in 26 innings before being shut down in June with left biceps tendinitis. He'll need to string together a few quality relief appearances in a row before regaining meaningful setup work.

Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Moves rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs (biceps) will make his next rehab appearance for Triple-A Nashville on Thursday.

Springs will move his rehab to the highest level of the minors after losing a pair of perfect innings for the team's Arizona League affiliate, striking out three batters in the process. The southpaw has been on the shelf since mid-June with biceps tendinitis but is trending toward rejoining the Rangers sometime in September.

June 28, 2019 03:36 PM
Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs (biceps) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.

Springs recently landed on the 10-day IL with left biceps tendinitis, and now this transaction makes him ineligible for a return until late August. Jesse Biddle was acquired via waivers and will take Springs' spot on the 40-man roster.

June 19, 2019 04:56 PM
Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs landed on the 10-day injured list with left biceps tendinitis Wednesday.

Springs owns a poor 6.23 ERA and a 1.85 WHIP in 26 innings for the Rangers this season. It's not clear how much time he's expected to miss. Joe Palumbo was recalled from Double-A Frisco in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Rust shows in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs (2-1) allowed four runs on four hits without retiring a batter in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Angels.

Springs had not pitched in eight days, and it showed when he allowed the first four batters he faced to reach base. His replacement, Kyle Dowdy, also hadn't worked in eight days and couldn't stanch the bleeding. Springs and Dowdy coughed up a 5-1 lead and ruined a nice outing from Ariel Jurado, who worked into the seventh inning for the first time in his career. Manager Chris Woodward shouldered the blame for the loss, acknowledging he needs to get certain members of the bullpen more work. The manager tried to stay away from key relievers who had a big workload over the last week. "When you go to high leverage guys over and over, you are going to eventually end up with guys who haven't pitched in big leverage situations pitching in big situations," Woodward told Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. "We have to use everybody out there."

Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Springs will take the roster spot of Wei-Chieh Huang, who was optioned to Nashville on Wednesday. The 26-year-old southpaw opened the season with the big club but was sent back to the minors after compiling a 5.25 ERA, 1.83 WHIP and 12:10 K:BB in 12 innings of relief. He'll likely fill a middle-relief role during his time with the Rangers.

Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Piling up innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs walked one over two scoreless innings in Sunday's 7-2 loss to the Angels.

With Adrian Sampson moving into the rotation as a replacement for the injured Edinson Volquez (elbow), Springs moves up a notch in the bullpen as a long reliever. The Rangers have a couple of relievers stretched out enough to throw multiple innings when needed, but the early results favor Springs as the top option. After a one-inning stint in his first appearance, the left-hander has worked multiple innings in his last three. Springs has allowed one run on three hits and six walks while striking out seven over seven innings across four outings.

Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Earns multi-inning relief win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs (1-0) allowed one run on two hits and three walks while striking out three over 2.1 innings to earn his first win of the season Thursday against the Angels.

He relieved a laboring Edinson Volquez in the fourth inning with the Rangers up 6-2, and coasted to a win after his teammates put up three more runs in the fifth. Springs is one of a few bullpen members capable of pitching multiple innings in the event a starter can't get deep -- this was the fourth relief win already for the 5-2 Rangers. Starters have pitched into the fifth inning only twice in seven games, but the offense (6.4 runs per game) has carried Texas to its early-season success, potentially giving long relief arms like Springs extra fantasy appeal if they continue vulturing their way into the win column.

Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Earns Opening Day spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs will break camp with the Rangers, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Springs posted a 2.35 ERA and 11:5 K:BB through 7.2 innings this spring, which was good enough to earn him a spot in the Rangers' Opening Day bullpen. The southpaw, who notched a 3.38 ERA and 8.7 K/9 in 18 appearances (32 innings) as a rookie in 2018, figures to reprise his role as a multi-inning reliever that could step in and start if needed.

March 18, 2019 08:12 AM
Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Enters for injured starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Springs allowed four hits and one walk while striking out three over 2.2 scoreless innings Sunday against Arizona.

Springs was summoned into action when starter Yohander Mendez left with an elbow injury. Springs is no stranger to extended outings. The former starter went four outs or longer in 13 of his 18 appearances last season for Texas, including a couple of games as an opener. The Rangers are not planning on deploying openers in 2019, so Springs will have a more traditional role as a multi-out reliever that could step in for an injured starter.
