Astros' Riley Ferrell: Listed on pitching schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (shoulder) is listed as an available option out of the bullpen for Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Ferrell could make his spring debut after a right shoulder issue has kept him sidelined for most of camp. The time he's missed probably ends any shot Ferrell had at earning a spot in the Astros' Opening Day bullpen, but the right-hander was always considered likely to begin the season at Triple-A Round Rock or Double-A Corpus Christi anyway.

Astros' Riley Ferrell: Out with shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell is batting a shoulder injury and was sent to Houston for tests Friday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Ferrell battled arm issues last season as well, though that problem was with his biceps. The nature and severity of his current injury should become clear once the results of his tests are known.

Astros' Riley Ferrell: Tosses scoreless frame
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) allowed a walk and struck out two over a scoreless inning Saturday against Double-A Midland.

Ferrell had been on the 60-day injured list due to right biceps tendinitis, but he's returned to full strength and has been pitching in relief for Double-A Corpus Christi. He's surrendered one run and fanned five over his last three appearances (3.1 innings).

Astros' Riley Ferrell: Sent back to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) was returned to the Astros organization Monday after clearing outright waivers, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Marlins selected Ferrell in December in the Rule 5 draft, but the right-hander never had the chance to make his MLB debut after experiencing biceps tendinitis in spring training. He was transferred to the 60-day injured list in late April and was shut down for about two weeks a month later after suffering a setback, but the 25-year-old looks to be nearing a return to full health. He made three rehab appearances in the minors this month before the Marlins parted ways with him. Expect Ferrell to report to Double-A Corpus Christi as he returns to the organization that drafted him in the third round in 2015.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Waived by Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) was placed on waivers by the Marlins on Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Ferrell hasn't pitched all season due to biceps tendinitis. A Rule 5 pick from the Astros over the offseason, Ferrell will be offered back to Houston if he passes through waivers unclaimed. If he does get claimed, his new team will have to keep him on the big-league roster and active for at least 90 days or offer him back to the Astros.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Set to resume rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) reported to High-A Jupiter on Tuesday to resume a rehab assignment.

Ferrell had been scheduled to pitch Tuesday in Jupiter's matchup with Palm Beach, but he failed to enter the contest since the game was called after five innings due to rain. Sidelined since mid-April with biceps tendinitis, Ferrell will likely make multiple appearances in the lower and upper levels of the minors before returning from the 60-day injured list.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) was returned from his rehab assignment with Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday due to lat soreness, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Ferrell has been on the shelf with biceps tendinitis since mid-April, and even though it appeared that he was making solid progress, he's been returned from his rehab stint after experiencing a setback. The team has yet to disclose what the right-hander's next step will be.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Moves rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) will move his rehab to Triple-A New Orleans on Wednesday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Biceps tendinitis has kept Ferrell sidelined to this point, though he's been able to make a pair of scoreless relief appearances while rehabbing with Double-A Jacksonville. He'll almost certainly be given a chance to show what he can do at the big-league level once healthy due to his status as a Rule 5 pick.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Kicks off rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) has joined Double-A Jacksonville for a minor-league rehab assignment, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

The Rule 5 pick has been sidelined all season with biceps tendinitis, but he's been cleared to begin a rehab stint after appearing in some games at extended spring training with no issues. Given the length of his absence, Ferrell will likely need to make multiple rehab appearances before being cleared to return.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: To see action at extended SP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) is expected to start playing in extended spring training games within the next week, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Ferrell has been restricted to bullpen sessions this point, but he'll likely get to face live batters in a matter of days, barring a last-minute setback. The 25-year-old right-hander could be looking at a return from the injured list by the end of May if all goes according to plan.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) completed a 35-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, Wells Dusenbury of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Ferrell was recently transferred to the 60-day injured list as he continues his recovery from right biceps tendinitis. The 25-year-old has no official timeline for his return, but won't be eligible to be activated until late May.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Placed on 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

Ferrell has been dealing with biceps tendinitis since late March, though he recently resumed throwing. His timeline is unclear, but he now won't be eligible to return until late May. He'll make way on the 40-man roster for Jon Berti, whose contract was purchased in a corresponding move.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Picks up throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell (biceps) started a throwing progression Monday, Joe Frisaro of reports.

Ferrell, who has been sidelined since spring with right biceps tendinitis, is finally ready to resume a throwing program. The Rule 5 pick isn't expected to fill a major role out of the Marlins' bullpen this season, so the team will likely play it safe with Ferrell during his recovery.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Shifts to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins placed Ferrell (biceps) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

Ferrell was shut down late in spring training with right biceps tendinitis and is without a clear timeline to return. Considering he's a Rule 5 pick who isn't expected to hold a major role out of the bullpen this season, the Marlins are likely inclined to take it slow with Ferrell as he works through the injury.

March 25, 2019 04:00 PM
Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Could be IL-bound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell has been shut down due to biceps tendinitis, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

The Rule 5 pick compiled a 2.70 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 5:0 K:BB through 6.2 innings this spring before suffering the injury. With Opening Day on Thursday, Ferrell will almost certainly begin the season on the injured list, should the Marlins decline to offer him back to his original organization (Houston).

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Having impressive spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell has posted a 1.50 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 9:2 K:BB through six innings this spring.

A Rule 5 pick from the Astros' system, Ferrell has given the Marlins no reason to send him back with his strong spring. The right-hander had control issues in 2018 at Triple-A, which got him left off Houston's 40-man roster, but he can touch the high 90s with his fastball and features a nasty slider -- a profile that could make Ferrell an effective high-leverage reliever if things begin to click. Look for Miami to keep him away from late-inning work to begin his MLB career, but given their wide-open closer picture, a hot month or two could have him moving way up in the bullpen pecking order.

Marlins' Riley Ferrell: Ticketed for Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell was selected by the Marlins with the fourth pick of the Rule 5 draft.

A 25-year-old right-handed reliever who made 22 appearances at Triple-A in 2018, Ferrell would not have been left unprotected in many organizations, but the Astros had to make some tough 40-man roster decisions, and he was a casualty. His 6.75 ERA in the Pacific Coast League was not ideal, but he did strike out 34 batters in 28 innings over that stretch. The Marlins will utilize him in a bullpen that is lacking in talent, but he is still unlikely to carve out a high-leverage role.

Astros' Riley Ferrell: Tapped for major-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ferrell received an invite to major-league spring training.

Ferrell, 24, combined to go 2-2 with six saves and a 3.67 ERA in 38 relief appearances between Double-A Corpus Christi and High-A Buies Creek last season. It was his third season in the organization and first full season since being selected out of Texas Christian University in the third round of the 2015 draft.
