Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Set to start in Tuesday's twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo is scheduled to be recalled from Triple-A Nashville to start in Tuesday's doubleheader against the Angels, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Palumbo was sidelined by an ankle issue during the back half of July, but he returned to Nashville's rotation in August and delivered six no-hit innings Thursday. The 24-year-old will look to build on that performance Tuesday after posting an 11.00 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in his first three major-league outings.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Could return for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo could return to the majors to make a start Aug. 20 during the doubleheader against the Angels, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The 24-year-old southpaw is the Rangers' top pitching prospect and has been excellent in five starts in the Pacific Coast League (3.43 ERA, 32 strikeouts in 21 innings). He has not fared as well in nine big-league innings, but those appearances were not necessarily a logical step in his development, but more of a byproduct of him being on the 40-man roster and the back of the Rangers' big-league rotation being affected by injuries and poor performances.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Returns to Nashville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo (ankle) allowed two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out five over 2.2 innings for Triple-A Nashville on Sunday.

This was Palumbo's first start back from a bout of right ankle tendinitis, an issue that cost Palumbo another shot in the big-league rotation in late July. He gave up a homer to Drew Weeks but was otherwise effective, throwing 24 of 37 pitches for strikes and fanning five of the 11 batters he faced. Once he's built up a little more, Palumbo should get that return trip to Arlington.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Injury to delay move to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo developed tendinitis in his right ankle coming out of a recent simulated game and won't be called up from Triple-A Nashville to start Monday's game against the Mariners, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

With the Rangers announcing Friday that Jesse Chavez would move into the bullpen, Palumbo was in line to rejoin the rotation as Texas' fifth starter this week. Those plans will be put on hold while Palumbo remains shut down with the injury, with the Rangers having yet to name a replacement for him. Adrian Sampson will be moved up a day in the pitching schedule to start Monday's series opener, but the Rangers will have to break in a new fifth starter beginning Tuesday.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Set to re-enter rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers intend to recall Palumbo from Triple-A Nashville to start Monday's game against the Mariners, Alyson Footer of MLB.com reports.

Palumbo will re-enter the Texas rotation as a replacement for Jesse Chavez, who was banished to the bullpen after a string of poor outings. Monday's start will represent the fourth appearance at the big-league level this season for Palumbo, who has yielded 11 earned runs over nine innings. The lefty turned in his best outing to date in his last outing with Texas on July 7 at Minnesota, where he covered three shutout innings in relief.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Callup official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers officially recalled Palumbo from Triple-A Nashville ahead of Sunday's game against the Twins.

Palumbo is scheduled to work as the Rangers' primary pitcher in the first-half finale after opener Jose Leclerc exits the contest. Over his previous two outings with the big club this season, Palumbo has covered six innings while allowing 11 runs on 12 hits and three walks. He'll likely be headed back to Nashville at the conclusion of Sunday's contest.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Will follow opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo will follow opener Jose Leclerc on Sunday against the Twins.

Previous reports held that Palumbo would start, but he'll get to avoid the toughest part of the Twins lineup the first time through before likely entering in the second inning. It may be a necessary boost for the rookie, who's allowed 11 runs in six big-league innings this season.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: To start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo will start for the Rangers on Sunday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Palumbo will take the place of Mike Minor, who is getting some extra rest prior to the All-Star break. Palumbo has drawn two previous starts with the Rangers this season, but he's experienced little success. Through six innings, he's racked up a 16.50 ERA and 2.50 WHIP with five strikeouts and three walks.

June 20, 2019 12:12 PM
Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Demoted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers optioned Palumbo to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

After Palumbo was roughed up for seven runs over two innings in Wednesday's loss to the Indians, the Rangers appear inclined to test their luck with another pitcher when the team requires a fifth starter again next weekend. Texas recalled Kyle Bird from Triple-A in a corresponding move to add a long-relief option to the bullpen.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Hit hard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo (0-1) gave up seven runs on six hits and three walks while striking out one through two innings, taking the loss against the Indians on Wednesday.

It was trouble from the start, as Palumbo gave up two home runs and was down 5-0 in the first inning. He faced the minimum in the second inning but allowed four baserunners and two more runs without recording an out in the third. Rangers general manager Jon Daniels has suggested that Palumbo wasn't called up merely for a spot start, but the 24-year old didn't exactly inspire confidence with Wednesday's performance. Through two starts, Palumbo has an 0-1 record with an 16.50 ERA.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Recalled ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo was recalled as expected ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against Cleveland.

Palumbo has made one career big-league start, allowing four runs in four innings against Oakland in early June. He owns a 3.19 ERA in 10 starts for Double-A Frisco. Jeffrey Springs (biceps) landed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

June 18, 2019 06:12 PM
Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Confirmed as Wednesday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo will be recalled from Double-A Frisco to start Wednesday's game against the Indians, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Palumbo made his big-league debut earlier this season with Texas, surrendering four runs while fanning four over four innings June 8 against the Athletics. He'll get another shot to work deeper into the ballgame Wednesday, and he's expected to stick in the rotation for now, per Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

June 15, 2019 11:24 AM
Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Candidate to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Chris Woodward acknowledged Palumbo is a candidate to start Wednesday against the Indians, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

This is the rotation spot that was once held by Drew Smyly, who pitched himself out of the mix for the time being. Woodward said earlier that Shelby Miller will not be moving back to the rotation and that the Rangers are not expected to fill the slot with a bullpen start, as they did Friday. That leaves Palumbo, who made a start for the Rangers on June 8, as the most likely option. The left-hander returned to the minors after that start and, by rule, is unable to return to MLB for 10 days. That's why he wasn't on the mound for Texas on Friday. Instead, he started for Double-A Frisco, an outing that looked remarkably like a tune-up designed to keep him fresh. He threw three scoreless innings and was pulled after just 48 pitches.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo was optioned to Double-A Frisco on Saturday.

Palumbo spent less than a day on the roster, allowing four runs in four innings in his major-league debut. Peter Fairbanks' contract was selected in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Strikes out four in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo permitted four runs on six hits over four innings in a no-decision in the first game of a doubleheader against Oakland on Saturday. He struck out four and did not issue a walk.

Making his major-league debut, Palumbo kept the Athletics off the board over the first three innings. However, the 24-year-old ran into trouble in the fourth inning, as Matt Olson belted a two-run homer and Josh Phegley added a two-run double. Palumbo is not current scheduled for his next major-league start.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Officially called up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo was recalled from Double-A Frisco prior to his start Saturday in Game 1 of the doubleheader against the A's.

This will be the big-league debut for the top pitching prospect in the Rangers' system. It will likely just be a one-start cup of coffee for Palumbo, who has never pitched at Triple-A. If he struggles, it shouldn't be alarming to those rostering Palumbo in dynasty leagues, but if he has success, that would boost his value in all formats. The 24-year-old southpaw has a 3.38 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 65 strikeouts in 50.2 innings at Double-A.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Set for debut Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo will be recalled from Double-A Frisco to start Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Athletics, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Saturday's spot start will mark Palumbo's big-league debut. The prospect has yet to pitch above Double-A Frisco, though he owns a solid 3.38 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 65:24 K:BB in 50.2 innings with the RoughRiders this season. The southpaw is expected to return to the minors after the outing, though manager Chris Woodward noted that a strong performance could open the door for Palumbo to rejoin the rotation later in summer, per Levi Weaver of The Athletic.

Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Candidate for spot start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo is a candidate to start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Athletics, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Palumbo would presumably head back to the minors after Saturday's spot start, which would also mark his big-league debut. The 24-year-old southpaw has been solid in 10 appearances (nine starts) for Double-A Frisco this season, compiling a 3.38 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 65:24 K:BB in 50.2 innings for the RoughRiders.

March 8, 2019 12:00 PM
Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo was optioned to Double-A Frisco on Friday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Palumbo had spent the start of spring in big-league camp. The 24-year-old made 11 starts last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, reaching Double-A for the first time for a pair of appearances.

September 4, 2018 02:37 PM
Rangers' Joe Palumbo: Recovery to continue in instructs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palumbo was scratched from Monday's start for Double-A Frisco due to fatigue, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

The left-handed Palumbo is recovering from Tommy John elbow surgery and will continue that recovery in the instructional league.
