Blue Jays' Mark Leiter: Set for season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter will miss the entire 2019 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

This is a tough blow for the right-hander. Leiter will now begin a long recovery process that could keep him sidelined into the 2020 campaign.

Blue Jays' Mark Leiter: Outrighted to Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

The Blue Jays needed to clear a spot for Oliver Drake, who they claimed off waivers. Leiter is a low-end reliever who will serve as organizational depth in 2019.

Blue Jays' Mark Leiter: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Monday.

Leiter was dropped from the Blue Jays' 40-man roster in order to clear room for Oliver Drake, who was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay in a corresponding roster move. The 27-year-old right-hander split time with the Phillies and Blue Jays in 2018, posting a combined 7.71 ERA, 2.01 WHIP and 22:12 K:BB across 23.1 innings.

Blue Jays' Mark Leiter: Claimed by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter was claimed off waivers by Toronto on Saturday.

The 27-year-old has a 5.03 ERA in 107.1 career major-league innings, though his underlying numbers are respectable. His 8.1 percent career walk rate is roughly average, while his 20.3 percent strikeout rate is slightly below average and his 49.1 percent groundball rate is above average, suggesting that he could at least be a competent swingman.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter was designated for assignment on Tuesday in order to make room on the 40-man roster for new acquisition Jose Bautista.

Leiter came into the year looking like a potential back-of-the-rotation candidate, as he posted a decent 4.19 xFIP in 90.2 innings last season. It didn't work out for him this year, as he missed the first month and a half with a forearm strain and posted an ERA of 5.40 in 16.2 innings of relief when healthy and up with the big-league club. As a 27-year-old with a career 5.03 ERA, he's unlikely to generate much interesting on the waiver wire, though his respectable strikeout and walk rates could be enough for some team to take a chance.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

After coming up for Thursday's twin bill against the Mets, Leiter will head back to the minors. Leiter had an odd stat line in his lone inning of work Thursday, getting tagged for seven runs but none of them were earned. He now owns a 5.40 ERA at the big league level this season and will likely be back with the Phillies once rosters expand.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: Recalled from Lehigh Valley
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter was called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley prior to Thursday's twin bill against the Mets, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Leiter will provide a little additional depth to the bullpen for the doubleheader after spending the past few weeks at the Triple-A level. Through 11 appearances with Philadelphia in 2018, he's logged a 5.74 ERA and 1.47 WHIP with 13 strikeouts in 15.2 innings of relief.

July 22, 2018 10:08 PM
Phillies' Mark Leiter: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

Leiter appeared in six games out of the bullpen during his latest big-league stint, allowing three runs while striking out three over 5.2 innings. Philadelphia will make a corresponding move ahead of Monday's series opener against the Dodgers.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: Brought back to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Leiter has bounced between Lehigh Valley and Philadelphia throughout the year. He has a 4.50 ERA in eight innings with the Phillies, though his strikeout (25.7 percent) and walk (5.7 percent) rates are both strong. He'll take the low-leverage spot in the bullpen which was vacated by the optioned Hector Neris.

June 16, 2018 02:52 PM
Phillies' Mark Leiter: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday.

In eight innings for the Phillies this season, Leiter has a mediocre 4.50 ERA, though his underlying numbers (25.7 percent strikeout rate and 5.7 percent walk rate) are solid. Jake Thompson and Yacksiel Rios were called up to take the place of Leiter and Luis Garcia (wrist).

May 31, 2018 03:40 PM
Phillies' Mark Leiter: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Leiter will join the Phillies for the first time all season to offer a fresh arm in long relief after Drew Hutchison, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding roster move, and Victor Arano both worked a pair of relief innings in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers. The 27-year-old owns a pristine 0.82 ERA and 15:4 K:BB across 11 innings between High-A Clearwater and Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

Leiter was up for just one day after being activated from the disabled list but did not see any game action. The 27-year-old appeared 11 times as a starter and 16 times as a reliever for the Phillies last season. His 4.96 ERA was unremarkable, though his 21.3 percent strikeout rate and 7.9 percent walk rate suggest that he could make a fine back-end starter or long reliever. A corresponding move has not yet been announced, but both Adam Morgan (back) and Victor Arano (shoulder) are nearing returns from their respective injuries, and it's possible that one of them is about to be called up.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: Activated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter (forearm) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Leiter has yet to make his season debut after being sidelined by a forearm strain suffered back in spring training. He'll likely fill a low-leverage role in the Phillies' bullpen, though he did make 11 starts for the team last season and could be an option to make another handful at some point this season.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: Kicks off rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter (forearm) began a rehab assignment Sunday at High-A Clearwater, tossing a perfect eighth inning and striking out a batter.

The appearance marked Leiter's first game action in a competitive setting since mid-March after a forearm strain suffered in spring training resulted in the right-hander opening the season on the 10-day disabled list. Leiter had been in contention for a rotation spot prior to sustaining the injury, but he'll most likely be deployed in long relief or work as a starter at Triple-A Lehigh Valley once he's activated from the DL. He only threw eight pitches Sunday, so he'll have to build up his count in subsequent rehab outings before an activation can be considered forthcoming.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: Faces live hitters Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter threw 20 pitches in live batting practice Monday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Leiter continues to ramp up his activity as he works his way back from a mild flexor strain that he suffered back in March. He was able to incorporate his entire repertoire in Monday's session with no issues. Barring any setbacks, Leiter should be cleared to head out on a minor-league rehab assignment in the coming weeks.

April 25, 2018 05:04 PM
Phillies' Mark Leiter: Set for second bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter (forearm) will throw another bullpen session Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Leiter resumed throwing last week and will continue to work his way back from a mild flexor strain that he picked up in mid-March. The right-hander remains without a concrete timetable but expect an update on his status once he's ready for a rehab assignment.

April 15, 2018 05:52 PM
Phillies' Mark Leiter: Bullpen session scheduled for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter (forearm) will throw a bullpen session Monday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Although Leiter seems to be making solid progress rehabbing his forearm, it's unclear how he'll be used when he comes off the disabled list. While the Phillies could opt to use him at the back end of their rotation instead of Ben Lively, Leiter may be assigned to the bullpen once healthy. Over 27 games (90.2 innings) last season, 11 of which were starts, Leiter threw to the tune of a 4.96 ERA and 1.33 WHIP.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: To start throwing soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter (forearm) had a normal MRI and could start throwing during this homestand, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Since his MRI came back clean, Leiter could be an option to join the rotation in the not-so-distant future. However, No. 5 starter Ben Lively was pretty effective Tuesday, so if he can continue to string together competitive starts, Leiter may be relegated to Triple-A or the bullpen once healthy. Additionally, Jared Eickhoff (lat) will be back at some point, so there could soon be some decent competition for starts at the back of the Phillies' rotation.

April 3, 2018 05:12 PM
Phillies' Mark Leiter: Set for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leiter (forearm) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

Leiter opened the season on the disabled list after suffering a flexor strain near the end of camp. While manager Gabe Kapler said Leiter hasn't suffered a setback in his recovery, his lack of progress prompted the Phillies to send him for some additional testing. He was originally expected to miss most, if not all of April while recovering, but a more concrete timetable will hopefully emerge once his test results are known. In the meantime, Ben Lively should continue to fill in as the Phillies' fifth starter until Leiter or Jerad Eickhoff return from the DL.

Phillies' Mark Leiter: Officially hits DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Phillies placed Leiter (forearm) on the 10-day disabled list Thursday, MLB.com reports.

Leiter initially looked like a good bet to fill a rotation spot at the beginning of the season after Jerad Eickhoff sustained a lat strain earlier in the month, but both players will end up on the DL after the former suffered a setback of his own just days after latter. The Phillies officially diagnosed Leiter with a mild flexor strain, an injury that is expected to keep him unavailable until at least late April. The multi-week injuries to Leiter and Eickhoff allowed Ben Lively to break camp as Philadephia's No. 5 starter.
