Stewart was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo prior to Saturday's game versus the Mariners.
Stewart is expected to work as the Blue Jays' primary pitcher Saturday behind opener Wilmer Font, so the promotion comes as no surprise. The 27-year-old has given up 11 runs on 16 hits -- including five homers -- over 13.1 major-league innings this season.
The Blue Jays are expected to recall Stewart from Triple-A Buffalo and use him as their primary pitcher for Saturday's game against the Mariners.
Wilmer Font will get the start but should be pulled after around two innings before turning the game over to Stewart, who has previously made two appearances with the Blue Jays as a primary pitcher. He recorded a win in both of those outings, giving up three runs -- all on solo home runs -- on seven hits and two walks across 9.1 innings. The Blue Jays don't have any healthy starters on the active roster beyond Trent Thornton and Jacob Waguespack, so expect Stewart to stick in the rotation moving forward, barring a complete blowup Saturday.
Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Stewart picked up the win Monday against the Rangers as the team's primary pitcher, but he'll head back down to Triple-A prior to Tuesday's matchup. Rowdy Tellez was recalled in a corresponding move.
Stewart (2-0) gave up three runs on five hits and no walks while striking out three through 5.1 innings to take the win over the Rangers on Monday.
After Neil Ramirez threw a scoreless inning as the opener, Stewart delivered a solid outing to pick up his second win, despite allowing three home runs. This was the right-hander's longest outing of the season and his second consecutive productive performance being used as a primary pitcher. Stewart has a 2-0 record with a 7.43 ERA through 13.1 innings this season.
Stewart is an option to serve as the primary pitcher in Monday's game against the Rangers, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Zack Godley is the other option to relieve opener Neil Ramirez. Stewart threw four scoreless innings in his lone appearance for the big club since getting claimed off waivers on July 31, so he could go deep enough to qualify for a win if he gets the ball.
Stewart will be recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday, Gregor Chisholm of the Toronto Star reports.
Stewart will replace Lourdes Gurriel, who's headed to the 10-day injured list after suffering a quadriceps strain Thursday night. The right-hander owns a 9.00 ERA with six strikeouts over eight innings this season in the majors.
Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Stewart's demotion was to make room for Zack Godley, who has been activated after being claimed off of waivers Wednesday. The 27-year old right-hander was victorious after throwing four scoreless innings out of the bullpen in his lone big-league appearance for the Blue Jays. He has now allowed eight runs in eight innings with six strikeouts following a rough start to the year with the Dodgers. It's possible Stewart will be deployed as a starter at Triple-A and he should return to the big-league roster in September at the latest.
Stewart (1-0) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out three across four scoreless innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Rays.
Stewart worked as the primary pitcher behind opener Wilmer Font and fared well, holding the Rays without an extra-base hit to avoid serious trouble. After previously toiling in the Dodgers' minor-league system, Stewart may benefit from a change of scenery, as he's struggled for the most of both the current and 2018 campaigns. Given his strong results in Wednesday's effort, he could continue to work multiple innings at a time behind an opener.
Stewart is slated to work as the primary pitcher Wednesday against the Rays, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
Wilmer Font is set to open and pitch the first two frames before giving way to Stewart, who is expected to cover the majority of innings Wednesday. The righty struggled in his first appearance for the Blue Jays earlier in the week, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while recording just two outs (one via strikeout).
Stewart was called up by the Blue Jays on Monday.
Stewart was claimed off waivers from the Dodgers in late July and will get another shot at the big leagues right away. The 27-year-old was formerly a fairly interesting prospect with the Dodgers but hasn't gotten much going in parts of four big-league season, recording a 5.46 ERA while striking out just 18.5 percent of opposing batters. He appears to be up as a reliever for now, with Yennsy Diaz optioned in a corresponding move, but he was mostly a starter in the minors this season and could get opportunities in the rotation down the stretch.
Stewart was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
It was only a couple years ago that Stewart was seen as an interesting spot starter candidate in a loaded Dodgers' rotation, so it's not surprising that he did not make it through waivers after being designated for assignment. The 27-year-old righty logged a 7.34 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 67 strikeouts in 76 innings pitching in the harsh conditions of the Pacific Coast League this year. Toronto will probably continue developing him as a starter at Triple-A.
Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.
Stewart allowed eight runs on nine hits over four innings and gave up multiple runs in each of his three appearances. Dennis Santana was called up from Triple-A to fill out the Dodgers' bullpen.
Stewart made the Opening Day roster as the Dodgers' eighth reliever.
This is good news for Stewart, but it also means that Stewart won't be getting stretched out at Triple-A in case the Dodgers need an emergency starter. Look for him to operate as a long reliever.
Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Stewart was granted an extra option last week and the Dodgers will immediately put it to use. Given the team's penchant for rotating pitchers, Stewart will likely spend a decent amount of time on the big-league roster, though he'll have to wait for his chance in Oklahoma City for now.
Stewart was granted a fourth minor-league option, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Stewart has yet to log five full seasons of professional experience, making him eligible for another minor-league option (players are typically only granted three). As such, the right-hander will likely spend the entire 2019 campaign once again shuttling between Triple-A Oklahoma City and the big club.
Stewart is scheduled to start Monday's Cactus League contest versus the Cubs, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Stewart entered spring training with no restrictions after finishing the 2018 campaign on the 60-day disabled list with a right oblique strain. The 27-year-old has shuttled between the majors and Triple-A Oklahoma City the past three seasons, but the fact that he has zero minor-league options remaining could help his case for sticking in the big leagues for most of 2019. Even in that scenario, however, the Dodgers' ample rotation depth means that Stewart would likely be ticketed for a bullpen gig.
The Dodgers recalled Stewart from Triple-A Oklahoma City and placed him on the 60-day disabled list with a right oblique strain.
Stewart must have picked up the oblique injury during his final start with Oklahoma City on Aug. 27. The Dodgers' unorthodox decision to bring him up from the minors and immediately place him on the DL was solely for the purpose of opening up a spot on the 40-man roster for catcher Rocky Gale, whose contract was selected from Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Stewart was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.
As expected, Stewart was shuttled back to the minors after serving as the 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs. The 26-year-old allowed the game-winning run in the 10th inning on a pair of hits and a walk before recording an out, raising his ERA to 6.11 through 17.2 innings this season.
Stewart is with the Dodgers as their 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Stewart has shuttled between Los Angeles and Triple-A Oklahoma City throughout the season. He hasn't done much during his time in the majors to demand more opportunities, posting a 5.60 ERA in 17.2 innings.
Stewart started for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday in the club's 4-3 loss to Salt Lake, tossing three innings and giving up two runs on four hits and a walk.
It was Stewart's first appearance in the Pacific Coast League since being optioned back to the minors six days earlier. The right-hander had made three appearances out of the bullpen during his latest stint with the Dodgers, so that likely explains why Oklahoma City limited him to 65 pitches Thursday as he rejoined the rotation. The Dodgers have been dealing with a deluge of injuries to their starting staff in recent weeks, but with Rich Hill (finger) on tap to come off the disabled list next week, any opening for Stewart in the big-league rotation has seemingly closed.
