  • Giants' Ethan Small: Sent out on rehab assignment

    Small (oblique) began a rehab assignment Tuesday in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League, striking out one while allowing one run on one hit and no walks over one inning.

    Small has been sidelined all season with a Grade 2 right oblique strain but has finally been cleared to pitch in games. Given the lengthy layoff, the left-handed reliever will likely require an extended rehab assignment before he's activated from the Giants' 60-day injured list. He has a minor-league option remaining and could be sent to Triple-A Sacramento once his rehab assignment concludes.

  • Giants' Ethan Small: Faces hitters Friday

    Small (oblique) threw a 20-pitch live batting practice session Friday, MLB.com reports.

    Small had been vying for a spot in the Giants' Opening Day bullpen during spring training before sustaining a Grade 2 right oblique strain late in camp that resulted in him opening the season on the injured list. He was shut down for about two months before he was finally cleared to start playing catch, and he's been gradually increasing the volume and intensity of his throwing sessions. Now that he's resumed facing hitters, Small could be on the cusp of heading out on what will likely be an extended minor-league rehab assignment. The 27-year-old lefty still has a minor-league option remaining, so the Giants could send him to Triple-A Sacramento upon activating him from the 60-day IL if there isn't a spot for him in the big-league bullpen.

  • Giants' Ethan Small: Throwing off flat ground

    Small (oblique) is slated to throw out to 120 feet this week, MLB.com reports.

    Assuming Small responds well to the long-toss throwing, he could be cleared to start throwing off a mound again as soon as next week. Small has spent the entire season on the Giants' 60-day injured list with a moderate right oblique strain. The 27-year-old lefty still has a minor-league option remaining and could be sent to Triple-A Sacramento once the Giants deem him ready to return from the IL.

  • Giants' Ethan Small: Hits 60-day IL

    The Giants placed Small (oblique) on the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Small sustained a Grade 2 right oblique strain just under two weeks ago and will now spend the first two months of the regular season rehabbing and recovering from the injury after landing on the 60-day IL. The 27-year-old lefty had served as a starter for most of his professional career but made the full-time move to the bullpen last season while he was in the Milwaukee organization.

  • Giants' Ethan Small: Out with oblique strain

    Small will be sidelined for several weeks after being diagnosed with a moderate right oblique strain, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Small had been in the running to win a spot in the Giants' bullpen, but he'll likely begin the season on the IL instead. The southpaw was acquired via trade from the Brewers last month.

  • Giants' Ethan Small: Not much action in spring

    Small has allowed one run on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts over 3.2 innings across two Cactus League games.

    Small isn't getting a particularly long look so far, which doesn't bode well for him making the major-league bullpen. Small worked as a starter in the minors up until last season. He has 10.1 major-league innings under his belt with the Brewers, but he's yet to display much success in the majors. The southpaw would likely end up in a low-leverage role if he happens to break camp with the Giants.

  • Giants' Ethan Small: Moved to San Francisco

    Small was traded from the Brewers to the Giants on Monday in exchange for cash considerations, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Small put up solid numbers at Triple-A Nashville in 2023, posting a 3.18 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with a 61:24 K:BB across 51 innings, but it didn't translate to the big leagues in what was a small sample size. The southpaw surrendered five runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out six across four frames. Small will compete for a low-leverage relief role during spring training.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Loses roster spot

    Small was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Small was selected in the first round of the 2019 Draft and rose quickly through Milwaukee's minor-league system. However, he's made just four big-league appearances and shifted to a relief role in 2023. Due to his former prospect pedigree, Small could be claimed by a team on waivers.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Back in minors

    The Brewers optioned Small to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.

    One day after recording his first major-league save, Small will head back to Triple-A in favor of Clayton Andrews. Small holds an 8.71 ERA and a 2.61 WHIP through 10.1 big-league innings in his career, though the 26-year-old lefty could still be in a position to compete for a spot in Milwaukee's bullpen during spring training next year.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Secures first career save

    Small gave up two walks and no hits in a scoreless inning, en route to his first career save in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals.

    Small has not traditionally been an option to close games in his limited work so far, however the team was willing to experiment with the rookie in a high-leverage spot given they are likely providing their regulars extra rest in advance of the playoffs. The southpaw made things tight by bringing the tying run to the plate in Masyn Winn after allowing two walks, but managed to close the door and preserve the team shutout. This was Small's first appearance since being recalled on Wednesday. He logged a 3.18 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 61 strikeouts in 51 innings while working as a reliever with Triple-A Nashville.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Called up Wednesday

    Small was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

    The 26-year-old will take the roster spot of J.B. Bukauskas, who landed on the injured list with a finger injury. Small allowed five earned runs over three frames in his lone big-league appearance of the season back in late May.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Optioned to minors

    The Brewers optioned Small to Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

    Small covered three innings behind starter Freddy Peralta in Friday's loss to the Giants, allowing five runs on nine hits. The lefty's ERA now sits at 15.00, and he was going to be unavailable for a few days after Friday's outing, so it only makes sense that the Brewers would swap him out for a fresh arm. Jake Cousins was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Recalled from Triple-A

    Milwaukee recalled Small from Triple-A Nashville on Friday.

    The 26-year-old right-hander will replace Tyson Miller in the Brewers' bullpen ahead of Friday night's game against the visiting Giants. Small has allowed five earned runs in 6.1 innings this season at the MLB level, but he's looked fairly sharp at Triple-A.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Sent to Triple-A camp

    Small was optioned Monday to Triple-A Nashville by the Brewers, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Small was auditioning for a bullpen spot with the Brewers this spring, but he comes up short -- at least to begin the season. The left-hander has shown impressive swing-and-miss stuff but also has had trouble finding the strike zone, and that includes three walks in five innings over four Cactus League appearances. If Small can ever find the command, he has a chance to be a fantasy contributor, but there's as much risk as reward in his profile.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Auditioning for bullpen role

    Manager Craig Counsell said Wednesday that Small is competing for a spot in the Brewers' Opening Day bullpen as a long reliever, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Though Aaron Ashby is expected to be sidelined until at least mid-May due to a shoulder injury, Small isn't being viewed as a candidate to replace him in the rotation, at least not to begin the season. Small was roughed up in his first two big-league starts in 2022 (7.11 ERA, 2.53 WHIP, 7:8 K:BB in 6.1 innings), but Counsell believes the southpaw can find more success working as a multi-inning reliever. Hoby Milner and Justin Wilson are the only other lefty relievers on the 40-man roster at the moment, which could work in Small's favor as he aims to secure a spot in the bullpen.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Wild in return to majors

    Small allowed three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out three in 3.2 innings in a 7-6 victory Tuesday against Minnesota. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Small was recalled from Triple-A Nashville to start Tuesday's game and struggled in his return to the majors. Byron Buxton welcomed him back by launching a solo shot to lead off the game and the Twins added two more runs in the third. Only 33 of his 63 pitches went for strikes and he has now walked eight batters in 6.1 innings across his two big-league starts. With two off days over the next week, the Brewers might not need Small to make another start any time soon, and he could return to Nashville shortly.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Sent down Wednesday

    Small was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

    Small returned to the majors to start Tuesday's game against the Twins, and he allowed three runs on four hits and four walks while striking out three in 3.2 innings. The Brewers have two scheduled days off approaching, so the Brewers could get by with a four-man rotation in the short term while Small heads back to the minors. Reliever Peter Strzelecki was recalled from Nashville in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' Ethan Small: Set for Tuesday's start

    Small will start Tuesday's game against the Twins, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Small is slated to make the second start of his big-league career after a shaky debut earlier in 2022. He's expected to remain in the starting five past Tuesday's outing barring any significant changes to Milwaukee's pitching plans.
