Diamondbacks' Sean Poppen: Recalled by Diambondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Monday.

Poppen was claimed off waivers from the Rays in early August and is already on his third separate stint on the Diamondbacks' big-league roster. He's allowed three runs in 6.2 innings for Arizona, striking out seven while walking four. Humberto Mejia was optioned to clear space on the roster.

Diamondbacks' Sean Poppen: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

Poppen was promoted by Arizona on Sunday and will head back to the minors after giving up two runs in two-thirds of an inning. The 27-year-old has a 5.25 ERA over 12 innings between stints with the Diamondbacks, Pirates and Rays this season.

Diamondbacks' Sean Poppen: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks recalled Poppen from Triple-A Reno prior to Sunday's game against the Padres.

Arizona brought up Poppen and Miguel Aguilar to provide fresh arms out of the bullpen for the series finale after Merrill Kelly and Joe Mantiply were moved to the COVID-19-related injured list in corresponding moves. Between stops with Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh and Arizona this season, Poppen has made nine relief appearances in the big leagues, posting a 3.97 ERA and 1.68 WHIP across 11.1 innings.

Diamondbacks' Sean Poppen: Sent down Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

Poppen was claimed off waivers by Arizona in early August and allowed a run on five hits and a walk while striking out six in six innings across five appearances. He earned his first career save during that time but will now head to the minors after J.B. Wendelken was claimed off waivers.

Diamondbacks' Sean Poppen: Collects first career save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen earned the save over the Padres on Friday, pitching two scoreless innings during which he allowed one hit and struck out one batter.

The right-hander was brought into the contest in the eighth inning with Arizona holding a three-run lead. After he retired three of the four batters he faced in the frame, manager Torey Lovullo elected to keep Poppen in to close things out in the ninth. The decision paid off when Poppen overcame an error behind him to keep San Diego off the scoreboard. Tyler Clippard remains the favorite for saves out of the Arizona bullpen -- he was unavailable Friday after tossing 23 pitches in a blown save Thursday -- but his stranglehold on the role is certainly not airtight. Poppen could be a dark-horse candidate for saves if Clippard falters, as the former has given up only one run across five frames while posting a 5:0 K:BB in three appearances for the Diamondbacks.

Diamondbacks' Sean Poppen: Claimed by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks on Monday.

The 27-year-old was designated for assignment by the Rays on Friday and didn't make it through the waiver wire unclaimed. Poppen was at Triple-A before being removed from Tampa Bay's 40-man roster, but he'll immediately head to the majors with his new team. He had a 1.59 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 30:11 over 28.1 innings at the Triple-A level for the Rays.

Rays' Sean Poppen: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was designated for assignment by the Rays on Friday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

Poppen has made three appearances for the Pirates this season and one for the Rays, allowing seven runs (four earned) in 5.1 innings of work. He owns a 6.33 ERA in a small sample of just 21.1 career major-league innings, which may make him an unpopular option on the waiver wire.

Rays' Sean Poppen: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Poppen was promoted Saturday recorded two outs without allowing a baserunner during his lone appearance. The Rays won't immediately make a corresponding move, but Manuel Margot (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the injured list Tuesday.

Rays' Sean Poppen: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays recalled Poppen from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Saturday's bullpen game in Cleveland demanded another bullpen arm, so Poppen joins the Rays for the first time after being acquired May 17. With Pittsburgh, the righty appeared in three early-season games, allowing four earned runs in 4.2 innings. It's unclear how long Poppen will remain on the big-league roster, but he may return to Durham when Manuel Margot (hamstring) is activated early next week.

Rays' Sean Poppen: Acquired by Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was traded from the Pirates to the Rays in exchange for cash considerations Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Rays are known for finding undervalued pitchers, but they may have to make some tweaks to turn Poppen into a useful arm. In 20.2 career major-league innings, he owns a 6.53 ERA. He'll remain in the minors for now and is unlikely to fill a high-leverage role if and when he eventually joins the big-league bullpen.

Pirates' Sean Poppen: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Thursday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Poppen was sent down by Pittsburgh in early May and will now be removed from the 40-man roster after Will Craig's contract was selected as part of a corresponding move. Poppen made three relief appearances for the pirates to begin the season and allowed four runs on 11 hits and two walks while striking out four in 4.2 innings.

Pirates' Sean Poppen: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was optioned to the Pirates' alternate training site Monday.

Poppen had been with the team since mid-April but made just three appearances, giving up seven runs (four earned) in 4.2 innings of work. Michael Feliz (finger) returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.

Pirates' Sean Poppen: Joins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was recalled from the alternate training site Friday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

The 27-year-old missed out on the Opening Day roster but will head to the majors two weeks into the season. Poppen surrendered five runs (four earned) on 10 hits with a 6:4 K:BB over eight innings during spring training.

Pirates' Sean Poppen: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was optioned to minor-league camp Wednesday.

Poppen made six relief appearances this spring and allowed five runs (four earned) on 10 hits and four walks while striking out six over eight innings. The right-hander will now join minor-league camp ahead of the regular season before he likely starts the year with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Pirates' Sean Poppen: Finds spring groove
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen pitched two innings of scoreless relief Tuesday, allowing one hit and no walks while striking out three.

After giving up three runs in his Grapefruit League debut, Poppen has posted five straight scoreless outings. The righty, who doesn't throw particularly hard, figures to start the season with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Pirates' Sean Poppen: Claimed by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Thursday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Poppen was designated for assignment by the Twins on Tuesday, but he'll find a spot on another 40-man roster just two days later. The right-hander will spend the offseason with his new club after allowing four runs while striking out 10 over 7.2 innings across six appearances in 2020. Utilityman JT Riddle was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Gets DFA'd
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins designated Poppen for assignment Tuesday.

Poppen was dropped from the 40-man roster to clear a spot for outfield prospect Alex Kirilloff, whose contract was selected from the minor leagues ahead of the Twins' wild-card opener against the Astros. During the regular season, Poppen made six relief appearances, giving up four runs and striking out 10 over 7.2 innings.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was optioned to the Twins' alternate site Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Poppen has bounced on and off the Twins' roster all season, spending five separate periods with the team. He didn't get into a game during his latest stint, which lasted just three days. Homer Bailey (biceps) was activated from the 45-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 26-year-old will rejoin the Twins for the final stretch of the regular season with Jake Odorizzi (finger) landing on the injured list. Poppen has given up four runs on nine hits with a 10:4 K:BB over 7.2 innings this season.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Heads back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins optioned Poppen to their alternate site Wednesday.

Poppen was called up from the alternate site to serve as the Twins' 29th man for Tuesday's doubleheader with the Cardinals. He came on in relief in the second game -- a 6-4 Twins loss -- striking out one of the two batters he faced and allowing a base knock to the other. He'll now head back to the alternate site as the Twins reduce their roster to the normal 28 men prior to their next game Friday against the Indians.
