Diamondbacks' Taylor Widener: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks optioned Widener to Triple-A Reno on March 8.

Arizona protected Widener from the Rule 5 draft by adding him to the 40-man roster over the winter, but the righty wasn't a serious threat to make the Diamondbacks' Opening Day rotation. He'll be looking for redemption when he reports back to Reno after logging an 8.10 ERA and 1.74 WHIP across 100 innings with the affiliate in 2019.

Diamondbacks' Taylor Widener: Contract selected by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Widener was added to the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster Wednesday.

Widener's 8.10 ERA over his 100 innings pitched for Triple-A Reno last season ranked worst among Pacific Coast League pitchers with at least 100 innings. However, his 5.57 xFIP tells a different story, especially considering that he made a change in his delivery midway through the season that helped him find some success. The 25-year-old could enter the conversation for a spot in the major-league rotation sometime next season if the pitching staff underwhelms again in 2020. His addition to the 40-man roster protects him from the Rule 5 draft.

Diamondbacks' Taylor Widener: Puts himself on MLB radar
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Widener made a correction in his delivery and has pitched to a 3.67 ERA over his last five starts at Triple-A Reno, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Widener opened the season with a 10.57 ERA over the first 11 starts but has been much better since Reno pitching coach Jeff Bajenaru spotted something on video. "My timing was a little bit off and my arm was late," Widener said. "I was just a little bit late on everything. I was kind of fighting that off, pulling off a little bit, and everything was inconsistent. My command wasn't very good." The Diamondbacks are coping with injuries and ineffectiveness in the starting rotation, so Widener's resurgence should put him on the radar for a spot in the rotation.

Diamondbacks' Taylor Widener: Throws seven shutout frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Widener struck out nine over seven shutout innings Thursday in Double-A Jackson's 2-1 win over Chattanooga. He gave up three hits and no walks while tossing 99 pitches.

The right-hander ran his scoreless streak to 16 innings and has now allowed no more than three runs in any of his last eight outings, netting a 1.97 ERA over that stretch. The 23-year-old leads all Double-A pitchers with 151 strikeouts over 119.1 innings this season and paces the Southern League with a 0.98 WHIP and .188 batting average against.

Diamondbacks' Taylor Widener: Sets new career high with 13 strikeouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Widener yielded one run on three hits and struck out a career-high 13 in a seven-inning complete game Saturday for Double-A Jackson in its 1-0 loss to Tennessee.

It's already the third double-digit strikeout game of the campaign for Widener, who has achieved the feat without covering more than seven innings in any of those outings. With a quality start in six of his last nine turns and a 2.60 ERA and 1.02 WHIP across 86.2 innings on the season, the 23-year-old has made a strong case for a promotion to Triple-A Reno.
