  • Athletics' T.J. McFarland: Gets ninth hold Wednesday

    McFarland recorded his ninth hold in a win over the Royals on Wednesday, retiring the only batter he faced.

    McFarland closed out the sixth inning for Luis Medina by retiring Adam Frazier on a flyout to left that left Nick Loftin stranded at first base. The veteran southpaw reliever has been outstanding since early May, recording a 1.17 ERA, 0.85 WHIP and four holds across 15.1 innings over his last 18 appearances. However, the fact he's typically used in middle relief usually limits McFarland to the occasional hold opportunity and leaves him with minimal fantasy appeal.

  • Athletics' T.J. McFarland: Secures first win Sunday

    McFarland (1-0) got the win against the Orioles on Sunday, firing a perfect eighth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts.

    McFarland's dominant eighth frame saw him locate eight of 10 pitches for strikes, a particularly impressive display of efficiency. The veteran southpaw has had a couple of stumbles overall, but McFarland has mostly been a reliable bullpen workhorse for manager Mark Kotsay. Factoring in Sunday's appearance, he's already logged 11.1 innings across 16 appearances, posting a 3.97 ERA and recording four holds in addition to his one victory.

  • Athletics' T.J. McFarland: Acquired by Oakland

    The Athletics acquired McFarland from the Dodgers on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations and selected his contract from Triple-A Las Vegas.

    It's quite the team downgrade for McFarland, but he'll likely take it since he gets to join a major-league roster. The veteran reliever made just three appearances at the big-league level in 2023, allowing one earned run over 1.2 innings with the Mets.

  • Dodgers' T.J. McFarland: Receives NRI from Dodgers

    McFarland signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    McFarland, 34, spent the bulk of last season in the minors but did get into three games with the Mets. The veteran left-hander will compete for a spot in the Dodgers' Opening Day bullpen but will probably begin the year at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

  • Orioles' T.J. McFarland: Joins Orioles on minors deal

    McFarland signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of reports.

    The veteran lefty spent the first four years of his big-league career (2013-16) in Baltimore, recording a 4.27 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. Over the last two seasons, he owns a 6.55 ERA at the MLB level, throwing 32.2 frames for the Cardinals last year and just 1.2 for the Mets this season.

  • Mets' T.J. McFarland: Outrighted to Triple-A

    McFarland cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse on Monday.

    McFarland is no longer on the Mets' 40-man roster but it appears he will remain in the organization. The veteran left-hander has posted a 5.40 ERA over three relief appearances at the big-league level in 2023.

  • Mets' T.J. McFarland: Designated for assignment

    The Mets designated McFarland for assignment Friday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    With Jose Quintana returning from the 60-day injured list, McFarland will be cut loose to free up a spot on the 40-man roster. The 34-year-old lefty pitched just 1.2 innings during his time in New York, allowing one run and striking out two batters. He's been solid in Triple-A, so it's possible another team will claim McFarland off waivers.

  • Mets' T.J. McFarland: Selected to MLB bullpen

    The Mets selected McFarland's contract from Triple-A Syracuse on Monday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    McFarland will get his first look in the majors this year after working to a 2.76 ERA with 37 strikeouts through 32.2 innings of relief at Syracuse. Josh Walker has been optioned out in a corresponding roster move.

  • Mets' T.J. McFarland: Sent to minor-league camp

    The Mets reassigned McFarland to minor-league camp Sunday.

    The veteran left-hander signed with New York as a non-roster invitee in January but struggled during spring training with six runs allowed over eight innings. McFarland appeared in 28 games for the Cardinals last season and pitched similarly poorly with a 6.61 ERA and 16:11 K:BB in 32.2 frames.

  • Mets' T.J. McFarland: Lands deal with Mets

    McFarland signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Tuesday, Michael Mayer of reports.

    It's unclear whether McFarland has been given an invitation to big-league camp, but it would stand to reason that he probably has. The left-hander stumbled with the Cardinals in 2022, posting an ugly 6.61 ERA across 28 appearances.

  • Cardinals' T.J. McFarland: Re-ups with Cards

    McFarland re-signed Tuesday with the Cardinals on a minor-league contract.

    McFarland and the Cardinals parted ways Aug. 15 when he was booted off the 40-man roster, but after assessing his options in free agency, the veteran southpaw chose to stick around in the organization. He'll report to Triple-A Memphis and could get a late-season call-up if the Cardinals have a need for a lefty reliever down the stretch.

  • T.J. McFarland: Let go by Cardinals

    McFarland was released by the Cardinals on Friday.

    After he was designated for assignment Wednesday, McFarland was released outright two days later. The reliever has produced a 6.61 ERA and 1.62 WHIP with 16 strikeouts over 32.2 frames in 28 appearances with the Cardinals this year. McFarland is now free to sign with whatever team he wants moving forward.

  • Cardinals' T.J. McFarland: Loses 40-man spot

    The Cardinals designated McFarland for assignment Wednesday.

    Given that the left-handed McFarland has yielded a .354 average and .542 slugging percentage to opposing left-handed hitters this season, the Cardinals' decision to cut bait with him isn't an overly surprising one. St. Louis summoned Jake Woodford from Triple-A Memphis to replace him in the bullpen.

  • Cardinals' T.J. McFarland: Reinstated from IL

    McFarland (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday.

    McFarland landed in the league's health and safety protocols in late June but will rejoin the Cardinals' bullpen after spending just under three weeks away from the team. He made three rehab appearances at Triple-A Memphis over the last few days and allowed a hit and no walks while striking out three in three scoreless innings.

  • Cardinals' T.J. McFarland: Begins rehab assignment

    McFarland (illness) begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    McFarland struck out one in a perfect inning during Wednesday's outing, and he'll make his second rehab appearance Friday. Assuming the southpaw feels good following Friday's appearance, it seems likely that he'll be back in action in the coming days.

  • Cardinals' T.J. McFarland: Bullpen session set for Wednesday

    McFarland (illness) is expected to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, John Denton of reports.

    McFarland has been out since June 22, though he cleared the COVID-19 protocols a week later. The southpaw is likely to need a rehab assignment with Triple-A Memphis after his bullpen session, so it's unlikely he's activated until the weekend.

  • Cardinals' T.J. McFarland: Clears protocols

    McFarland (illness) was spotted in the Cardinals clubhouse Wednesday, suggesting that he's no longer symptomatic of COVID-19 and has cleared all protocols, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    McFarland remains on the COVID-19-related injured list and will likely need at least a few days to regain conditioning and ramp up his throwing program before being activated. The veteran lefty reliever posted a 7.43 ERA and 1.76 WHIP across 26.2 innings with St. Louis before being deactivated June 22.

  • Cardinals' T.J. McFarland: Still recovering from COVID-19

    Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said McFarland (illness) has yet to clear all COVID-19-related protocols and thus hasn't resumed working out, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Marmol noted that McFarland is feeling better since landing on the COVID-19-related injured list Wednesday, so he could be cleared to begin ramping up within the next few days. The lefty reliever posted a 7.43 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 16:8 K:BB across 26.2 innings this season prior to landing on the IL.

  • Cardinals' T.J. McFarland: Placed on injured list

    McFarland was placed on the injured list without a designation Wednesday.

    Since the Cardinals didn't provide a reason for placing McFarland on the injured list, he's likely on the COVID-19 IL. Assuming that's the case, the southpaw will be eligible to rejoin the team as soon as he clears the league's health and safety protocols. His return timetable depends on whether he's tested positive for COVID-19, but right-hander Junior Fernandez was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.

  • Cardinals' T.J. McFarland: Nabs four outs Monday

    McFarland struck out one without allowing a baserunner in 1.1 innings during Monday's 7-5 win over the Pirates.

    McFarland appeared to be set for mop-up work when he entered the game in the sixth inning with the Cardinals down 5-0, but they tied it up in their half of the frame. He got one more out before turning the ball over to Giovanny Gallegos. McFarland has had few bright spots lately, giving up 15 runs and 24 hits across his last 14 innings, but he was effective Monday in his second straight scoreless appearance. The southpaw has a 7.40 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 15:8 K:BB across 24.1 innings as a low-leverage option this season.
