Tigers' David McKay: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers outrighted McKay to their alternate training site Sunday.

McKay made one relief appearance for Detroit this season before he was removed from the 40-man roster Thursday. With the 25-year-old reliever going unclaimed off waivers, he'll stick in the organization and head to the Tigers' alternate site as a member of Detroit's 60-man roster pool.

Tigers' David McKay: DFA'd by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKay was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Thursday.

McKay made the Tigers' Opening Day roster this season but was sent down after struggling in the season opener. He's worked at the alternate training site since the end of July, and he'll now be removed from the 40-man roster to clear room for Zack Short, who was acquired from the Cubs via trade Monday.

Tigers' David McKay: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKay was optioned to the Tigers' alternate training site after Saturday's win over the Reds.

The 25-year-old earned a spot on the Opening Day roster, but he struggled when called upon in the opener, allowing a two-run homer while recording only one out. McKay could rejoin the bullpen mix at some point, but for now he'll try to stay fresh at the alternate training site.

Tigers' David McKay: On roster bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKay is in the mix for a bullpen spot when the regular season is able to begin, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

MLB teams will likely be able to carry as many as 30 players when the season starts, which could help McKay, as bullpens figure to be deepened. The 25-year-old posted a mediocre 5.47 ERA last year, but his 34 strikeouts in 26.1 innings show that some potential is there as a reliever.

Tigers' David McKay: Velocity down to start spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKay's fastball velocity has been down from last season across his first five Grapefruit League outings, though he said he's fine physically, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

McKay averaged 93.9 mph on his fastball in 2019 and routinely climbed into the mid-90s, but he's barely topped 91 mph so far this spring. The righty said he's fine physically and added that his velocity is always down early in the year. "I just know that no matter how much I throw in the offseason, no matter what I do, for some reason it's not there right away," he said. McKay is battling for one of Detroit's final bullpen spots to start the season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKay was claimed off waivers by the Tigers on Tuesday.

McKay has thrown seven big-league innings this season, recording a 5.14 ERA and 5:8 K:BB. He's spent the bulk of the season with Triple-A Tacoma, recording a very similar 5.15 ERA. He'll remain at the Triple-A level with his new organization.

Mariners' David McKay: Sent back to Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners optioned McKay to Triple-A Tacoma after Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Angels, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The righty reliever appeared in the final two games of the weekend series at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, giving up three runs on one hit and five walks over two frames. He'll likely need to refine his control in the minors before getting another look with the big club.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKay had his contract selected by the Mariners on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

McKay spent part of spring training in major-league camp before being reassigned in mid-March. The young right-hander had a 2.49 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 71:21 K:BB across 50.2 innings for Double-A Arkansas last season and figures to start out in a low-leverage bullpen role.
