Rangers' Glenn Otto: Whiffs seven in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Otto (0-3) took the loss in Thursday's 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Orioles, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in five innings.

Coming off two disaster starts, Otto got back on track against Baltimore and needed just 81 pitches to navigate five innings. The 25-year-old wore down a bit after delivering three scoreless frames, permitting a single run in both the fourth and fifth innings, which could've prompted manager Chris Woodward to pull Otto despite the reasonable pitch count. The seven strikeout's tie Otto's career high set in his first start, and he's projected for another start next week versus the Angels.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Can't survive fourth inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Otto (0-3) took the loss in Thursday's 12-1 defeat at the hands of the Astros, allowing seven runs on seven hits and four walks with three strikeouts in 3.1 innings.

Otto was able to prevent Houston from scoring in the game's first three innings but fell apart in the fourth, permitting eight of nine Astros to reach base and surrendering all of his seven runs in the process. Texas has now lost all four of Otto's starts and the righty possesses an unsightly 9.37 ERA across 16.1 innings.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Clobbered in third start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Otto (0-1) took the loss against Oakland on Friday, allowing eight runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out five across 3.1 innings.

The rookie had pitched fairly well in his first two big-league starts, but he was hit hard by the Athletics on Friday. Otto gave up six runs in the second inning, though Oakland didn't register any extra-base hits in the frame. He bounced back with a scoreless third inning but was pulled after allowing a double and a triple while retiring only one batter in the fourth. Otto did flash impressive strikeout stuff -- he notched five punchouts and 12 swinging strikes -- so the overall picture isn't as bleak as the outcome of his brief appearance. If Otto remains in the rotation, his opportunity to bounce back will likely come at home against the White Sox next week.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Staying in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Otto is expected to make his third start with the Rangers in Friday's series opener in Oakland, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Texas will welcome two starters in Spencer Howard and Dane Dunning back from the COVID-19 injured list this week, but neither pitcher's return looks like it will bump Otto out of the rotation. Howard will be activated Tuesday to start against the Diamondbacks and will be deployed in tandem with Jordan Lyles, who could work exclusively out of the bullpen moving forward. Dunning, meanwhile, is expected to be activated Friday, but the Rangers plan on having him work only an inning out of the bullpen behind Otto, who should thus be in store for a normal start. The 25-year-old rookie has looked good in his first two turns through the Texas rotation, covering 9.2 innings between the outings while allowing two earned runs and striking out 11.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Pitches 4.2 innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Otto allowed two earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four across 4.2 innings in the loss to the Angels on Friday. He did not factor into the decision.

Otto allowed three hits in the first inning that led to a pair of runs. He didn't have any further damage, but he was relieved with two outs in the fifth inning. It wasn't a bad start, but it wasn't a repeat of his scoreless MLB debut. He'll be pitching for his spot in the starting rotation with Dane Dunning, Mike Foltynewicz and Spencer Howard all expected to eventually return from the COVID-19 injured list.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Picks up another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Otto is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Angels.

Otto will earn a second turn through the rotation after he held the Astros scoreless while striking out seven en route to taking a no-decision in his MLB debut Aug. 27. Texas will eventually get Dane Dunning, Mike Foltynewicz and Spencer Howard back from the COVID-19 injured to potentially take back rotation spots, but Otto should still have a good case to stick around in a starting role if he turns in another solid outing versus the Angels.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Fans seven in major-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Otto allowed just two hits while striking out seven over five scoreless innings in a no-decision versus Houston on Friday.

The right-hander recorded a 3.20 ERA between Double-A and Triple-A to begin the season, but he was just about untouchable in his major-league debut. Unfortunately for Otto, Texas' bullpen let a four-run lead slip away in the seventh, denying the starter a win. The 25-year-old could be a candidate to stay in the rotation with Texas missing three regular starters on the COVID-19 injured list. If he gets another start, it would likely be a home date versus Colorado next week.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Officially recalled for start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Otto was called up from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of his start Friday against the Astros.

The Rangers announced earlier in the week that Otto would start in place of Spencer Howard (undisclosed) and now the club has officially made room on the 26-man roster by placing Howard on the COVID-19 injured list. Otto will be making his major-league debut after posting a 3.20 ERA while logging 95.2 innings between Double-A and Triple-A this season.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Confirmed for MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Otto will start Friday's game against Houston, John Blake, Executive Vice President of Communications for the Rangers reports.

The Rangers are missing Dane Dunning and Mike Foltynewicz, both of whom are on the COVID-19 injured list. That opens up opportunity for Otto, who was traded from the Yankees to the Rangers at the trade deadline. Otto has maintained a 2.70 ERA to go along with a 1.00 WHIP with a 19:7 K:BB across 20 innings at Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Could make MLB debut Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers are leaning toward promoting Otto from Triple-A Round Rock to start Friday's game against the Astros in Arlington, Chris Halicke of SI.com reports.

With Dane Dunning and Mike Foltynewicz on the COVID-19 injured list and Spencer Howard likely to join them on the list soon, the Rangers are left with multiple holes in their rotation. Otto -- one of four prospects the Rangers acquired in the July trade that sent Joey Gallo to the Yankees -- looks like he'll have a shot to fill one of the openings. Since joining his new organization, Otto has submitted a 2.70 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 19:7 K:BB across 20 innings over his four starts with Round Rock.

Rangers' Glenn Otto: Dealt to Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Otto was traded from the Yankees to the Rangers on Wednesday along with Trevor Hauver, Josh Smith and Ezequiel Duran in exchange for Joey Gallo and Joely Rodriguez, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Otto is the lone arm headed from the Yankees to the Rangers in the deal. He's spent the season at both the Double and Triple-A affiliates for the Yankees, posting a combined 3.33 ERA with 115 strikeouts across 75.2 innings.
