Royals' Joel Payamps: Traded to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was traded from the Blue Jays to the Royals on Wednesday in exchange for cash considerations.

Payamps will land another spot on a 40-man roster after he was designated for assignment by Toronto on Friday. The right-hander has posted a 2.70 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 30 innings across 22 relief appearances in the majors this year and could join the Royals' bullpen at some point during the second half of the season, but he'll head to Triple-A Omaha for now.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was designated for assignment by Toronto on Friday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Payamps finds himself off the 40-man roster with Ryan Borucki (forearm) being activated from the 60-day IL. The right-hander posted a 2.70 ERA across 30 innings before being optioned to Triple-A on June 30, so he should have a strong chance of attracting interest on the waiver wire.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Sent down Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

Despite not allowing a run during his last 4.2 innings, Payamps was optioned along with Miguel Castro as Steven Matz (illness) and Adam Cimber were added to the major-league roster. It will mark Payamps' first trip back to Triple-A since mid-April, and he should be a candidate to rejoin the Blue Jays should they need to add a bullpen arm later this summer.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Moves past back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps (back) struck out one over a perfect ninth inning in Saturday's 12-4 win over the Orioles.

Manager Charlie Montoyo said Friday that Payamps had been managing a back injury of late, but the reliever's availability for Saturday's contest implies the issue isn't a major concern. Since being called up from Triple-A Buffalo on April 15, Payamps has compiled a 3.12 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB in 26 innings over 20 appearances.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Managing back issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps' back has been "so-so" recently according to manager Charlie Montoyo, which has led the Blue Jays to not use him, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

Payamps hasn't pitched since June 17, and Montoyo revealed Friday that the right-hander's lack of usage is due to an injury. The issue apparently hasn't been serious enough to warrant a trip to the injured list, but it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to the mound.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Recalled to Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was recalled by the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Payamps was called up in a corresponding move to Jordan Romano (elbow) landing on the injured list. He's already thrown four innings for the Blue Jays this season, allowing no earned runs while posting a 4:1 K:BB. The team will rely on Payamps in a bullpen now missing key players such as Tyler Chatwood (triceps), Julian Merryweather (oblique) and Romano, though he isn't likely to immediately earn a high-leverage role.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Returns to alt site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays optioned Payamps to their alternate training site Monday.

Payamps' second stint with the big club of the season lasted just three days. He appeared in long relief during Friday's game against the Angels, striking out three over 2.2 scoreless frames. Payamps will head back to the alternate site to make room on the 26-man roster for Robbie Ray (elbow), who was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Monday against the Yankees.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Called up by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was recalled by the Blue Jays on Friday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

The Blue Jays sent Payamps to their alternate training site Sunday, but he'll return to the major-league bullpen after Tyler Chatwood (triceps) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Payamps made his team debut against the Yankees on Saturday and allowed no hits and a walk while striking out one in 1.1 scoreless innings.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Sent to alt site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays optioned Payamps to their alternate training site Sunday.

Payamps was unlikely to be available for another day or two after he recorded four outs (on 27 pitches) in his team debut in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Yankees, so Toronto elected to swap him out in favor of a fresh arm in Tommy Milone, whose contract was selected ahead of Sunday's series finale. The 26-year-old right-hander will be eligible to rejoin Toronto in 10 days, or if the Blue Jays place another player on the injured list before then.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Called back up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was added to the 26-man roster Thursday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

The 26-year-old was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo over the weekend, but Payamps was brought back up after the Jays placed a number of pitchers on the IL to begin the season. He'll likely fill a low-leverage role in the bullpen after posting a 6:3 K:BB over 5.1 scoreless innings this spring.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

Payamps was waived and claimed four separate times this offseason but will finally find some stability with the Blue Jays organization. He's made just four career big-league appearances, so it's no surprise to see that he'll open the year in the minors.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Claimed by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Payamps has been waived four times during the offseason, but he'll return to the Blue Jays after he was recently waived by the Red Sox. The right-hander has been unable to firmly secure a roster spot to this point in the offseason, but he'll now compete for a bullpen role with Toronto heading into the regular season.

Red Sox's Joel Payamps: Back with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was claimed off waivers by the Red Sox on Monday.

Payamps has had quite a busy offseason. He started it as a Diamondback before being waived in November and claimed by the Red Sox. The Blue Jays claimed him in mid-February after the Sox waived him, but he'll head right back the other direction less than two weeks later. The righty clearly doesn't have a firm grip on a roster spot but will hope to last the remainder of camp with the Red Sox as he pushes for a bullpen role.

Blue Jays' Joel Payamps: Claimed by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

The 26-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Diamondbacks in November, and he'll now be joining the Blue Jays after being DFA'd by the Red Sox last week. Payamps appeared in two games in each of the past two seasons for Arizona and allowed three runs on six hits with a 5:6 K:BB over seven innings.

Red Sox's Joel Payamps: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Payamps was claimed by Boston after being designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks in November, but he'll now be cast off another 40-man roster after the Red Sox acquired right-hander Garrett Richards on Saturday. Payamps made brief appearances in the majors over the past two seasons, posting a 3.86 ERA and 1.71 WHIP over seven innings while making six relief appearances for Arizona.

Red Sox's Joel Payamps: Claimed by Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was claimed off waivers by the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Payamps was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Friday, and he'll find a spot on Boston's 40-man roster via waivers. The right-hander tossed three relief innings in 2020, allowing one earned run while striking out two during that time.

November 20, 2020 07:24 PM
Diamondbacks' Joel Payamps: DFA'd by Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Payamps had minimal usage in the majors in 2020, and he allowed one earned run while striking out two over three relief innings. The right-hander's removal from the 40-man roster makes room for several prospects who will now be protected from the Rule 5 draft.

Diamondbacks' Joel Payamps: Optioned down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was optioned to the Diamondbacks' alternate training site following Saturday's game.

This move clears space for Taylor Widener's return from a rib cage injury. Payamps ended up making just one appearance during his latest stint with the big-league club.

Diamondbacks' Joel Payamps: Rejoins 28-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was recalled by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Payamps was sent to the alternate training site Thursday, but he'll return to the major-league bullpen just under a week later. Southpaw Joe Mantiply was sent down in a corresponding move. Payamps will likely pitch in low-leverage situations for the Diamondbacks.

September 3, 2020 05:28 PM
Diamondbacks' Joel Payamps: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payamps was optioned to the alternate training site Thursday.

Travis Bergen was promoted to take Payamps' spot in the bullpen. He got in just one game during this cup of coffee, giving up one earned run while striking out two in two innings.
