Cardinals' Brandon Waddell: Finds new organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals claimed Waddell off waivers from the Orioles on Sunday and assigned him to Triple-A Memphis.

Waddell will move on to his third organization of the season after being waived by the Twins earlier in 2021. The 27-year-old lefty has made five relief appearances at the big-league level between Minnesota and Baltimore this season, giving up five earned runs on 10 hits and four walks over five innings.

The 27-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Twins in early May and spent less than a week in the majors for the Orioles, making one appearance. Waddell could remain in the organization if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Orioles' Brandon Waddell: Claimed by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Saturday.

Waddell was designated for assignment by Minnesota on Friday, and he'll now report to Triple-A Norfolk.

Right-hander Jay Flaa was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Twins' Brandon Waddell: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell was designated for assignment by the Twins on Friday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Waddell has spent a pair of brief stints on the Twins' roster this season but has failed to impress. He's allowed five earned runs on 10 hits in four innings of work, walking three while striking out just one. His absence clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the Twins to select the contract of Trevor Larnach, who's set to make his big-league debut.

Twins' Brandon Waddell: Sent down by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Waddell gave up three runs (two earned) on three hits in two-thirds of an inning to take the loss against the Rangers on Tuesday. He'll return to the minors after Lewis Thorpe was recalled ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday.

Twins' Brandon Waddell: Takes loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell (0-1) was tagged with the loss Tuesday against the Rangers after giving up three runs (two earned) on three hits across two-thirds of an inning.

Waddell entered the game in the top of the 10th inning after Taylor Rogers blew a two-run lead, but he was even worse. In fact, Waddell has been woeful in general since returning to the big-league roster on May 3, having given up six runs (five earned) across two appearances (one inning pitched).

Twins' Brandon Waddell: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell was recalled by the Twins on Monday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

Waddell spent a week in the big-league bullpen early in the season and threw three scoreless innings despite striking out zero batters and allowing seven baserunners. He'll likely remain in a low-leverage role this time around. Randy Dobnak was optioned in a corresponding move.

April 14, 2021 05:48 PM
Twins' Brandon Waddell: Sent back down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell was optioned to the alternate training site Wednesday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Waddell gave the Twins a week's worth of bullpen depth, logging a scoreless inning in his lone appearance. He will likely be up and down all season between the majors and Triple-A.

Twins' Brandon Waddell: Contract selected by Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell's contract was selected by the Twins on Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Waddell started the season on Minnesota's taxi squad after he narrowly missed out on a spot in the Opening Day bullpen. He'll now be added to the 40-man roster after he struck out 15 in 9.1 innings this spring. Brent Rooker (neck) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, while Edwar Colina (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.

Twins' Brandon Waddell: Gets spot on taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins assigned Waddell to their taxi squad Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Waddell narrowly missed out on making the Twins' Opening Day bullpen, as he and Derek Law were finalists for the remaining spot that ultimately went to Caleb Thielbar. The Twins' decision to include Waddell on the taxi squad is a decent consolation prize, since he's now seemingly positioned as the next man up for a promotion should Minnesota require another pitcher at any point during its season-opening six-game road trip. The 26-year-old lefty looked dominant in spring training, holding opposing hitters to a .188 average while striking out 15 in 9.1 innings.

Twins' Brandon Waddell: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

The 26-year-old was designated for assignment by the Twins on Thursday but will remain with the organization after clearing waivers. Waddell will still join the team at big-league spring training as a non-roster invitee.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell was designated for assignment by the Twins on Thursday.

After being claimed off waivers by the Twins at the end of October, Waddell will be removed from the 40-man roster to make room for outfielder Kyle Garlick. Waddell made his major-league debut with Pittsburgh in 2020, allowing one run on five hits and two walks while striking out two over 3.1 innings.

Pirates' Brandon Waddell: Sent down Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell was optioned to the Pirates' alternate training site Tuesday.

Waddell was effective over limited action out of the bullpen during his time in the majors as he allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out two over 3.1 innings during his two appearances. He'll return to the team's alternate training site but could be an option to rejoin the Pirates if injuries occur.

Pirates' Brandon Waddell: Contract selected by Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell had his contract selected by the Pirates on Sunday.

The 26-year-old was included in the Pirates' 60-player pool and will now have the chance to make his big-league debut. Waddell spent most of 2019 at Triple-A Indianapolis but struggled with an 8.70 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 69:40 K:BB over 61 innings.

Pirates' Brandon Waddell: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waddell will head to Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Waddell put together a solid start to the 2018 season, posting a 2.68 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with 43 strikeouts across 53.2 innings at Double-A Altoona. He'll look to keep it rolling at the next level with an eye toward making his big-league debut within a year or so.
