Red Sox's Zac Grotz: Shut down for two days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grotz (elbow) will be shut down for two days and re-evaluated later in the week, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Grotz left Monday's game against Atlanta with an elbow injury. Initial tests didn't reveal any serious injuries, but the Red Sox will be cautious with him for now given that it's still early March. Grotz was always a long shot at best to break camp on the big-league roster given that he's merely a non-roster invitee, so any time lost to an injury only makes his chances even slimmer.

Red Sox's Zac Grotz: Latches on with Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grotz signed a minor-league deal with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

The 27-year-old appeared in five games for the Mariners in 2020 and surrendered 12 runs over 7.1 innings before being outrighted at the start of September. Grotz will join Boston at big-league spring training and have an outside shot of making the Opening Day roster.

Mariners' Zac Grotz: Outrighted off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grotz was outrighted off the Mariners' 40-man roster Tuesday.

It's been a busy five days for Grotz, who was recalled twice, optioned twice and now outrighted in that short span. He's allowed 12 earned runs in 7.1 innings this season while posting a 4:11 K:BB.

Mariners' Zac Grotz: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners optioned Grotz to their alternate training site Sunday.

The Mariners will swap Grotz out for a fresh relief arm in Seth Frankoff, whose contract was selected from the alternate site in a corresponding move. Grotz mopped up in Saturday's 16-3 loss to the Angels, giving up four runs on three hits and four walks over 1.1 innings.

Mariners' Zac Grotz: Recalled by Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grotz was recalled from the Mariners' alternate training site Friday.

Grotz was sent down by the Mariners earlier Friday, but he'll return to the major-league bullpen after Matt Magill (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list. The right-hander has made four appearances for the Mariners this season, allowing eight runs over six innings.

Mariners' Zac Grotz: Optioned down Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grotz was optioned to the Mariners' alternate site Friday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

He was only up with the big club for a day before being sent down and did not pitch in a game during this brief cup of coffee. Grotz has given up eight earned runs in six innings this year.

Mariners' Zac Grotz: Moves up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners recalled Grotz from their alternate training site Thursday.

Grotz has previously made four appearances out of the Seattle bullpen, covering three and two innings in his most recent two outings. His ability to provide length in relief could prove useful Thursday, as the Mariners will be playing a doubleheader against the Padres. Taijuan Walker had been scheduled to start the first game of the twin bill before being traded to the Blue Jays earlier in the day, so Grotz seems likely to see use in that contest in what could be a bullpen game.

Mariners' Zac Grotz: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grotz was optioned to the Mariners' alternate training site Tuesday.

Grotz struggled out of the bullpen in three of his first four appearances this season, and the team will elect to continue his development at the alternate training site for now. Over six innings in 2020, the 27-year-old posted a 12.00 ERA and 2.50 WHIP. Right-hander Joey Gerber and lefty Taylor Guilbeau were added to the active roster to take Grotz's place.

Mariners' Zac Grotz: Cleared to join camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grotz has been cleared to join the Mariners' summer camp workouts, Greg Johns of reports

Grotz had previously been one of five Mariners that hadn't been seen at workouts prior to Monday, but his return, along with those of Mallex Smith, Dylan Moore and Joe Hudson, leaves Yoshihisa Hirano as the only still-missing player. Grotz had been optioned to Triple-A Tacoma back on March 20, but the 27-year-old will try to secure an Opening Day roster spot over the remaining workouts ahead of the regular season. Grotz made his big-league debut last season, posting a 4.15 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and one hold across 17.1 innings.

Mariners' Zac Grotz: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grotz was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, Lauren Smith of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Grotz made his big-league debut in 2019 and had a 4.15 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 18:8 K:BB over 17.1 innings, but he's set to begin the 2020 season -- whenever that may be -- at Triple-A. The 27-year-old allowed three runs on four hits with one walk and seven strikeouts over five innings prior to the suspension of spring training.

Mariners' Zac Grotz: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grotz was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

The 26-year-old right-hander spent time with the Mariners during August, generating an impressive 3.12 ERA across 8.2 innings over six relief appearances. Grotz was sent back down to the minors and logged two outings with the Rainiers during which he allowed two hits and a walk across three scoreless frames. Grotz will give manager Scott Servais yet another bullpen option for the balance of the regular season and will have a chance to build some momentum toward competing for a relief role in spring training.

Mariners' Zac Grotz: Earns promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grotz had his contract selected from Double-A Arkansas on Wednesday.

Grotz will provide the Mariners with a fresh bullpen arm after the team traded away a pair of relievers Wednesday. The right-hander owns a solid 2.51 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 69:11 K:BB in 57.1 innings with Arkansas this season, though he's never pitched above Double-A, so expectations should be tempered for his first big-league stint.
