What to expect from Dan Jennings

What to expect from Dan Jennings

He’s a lefty, but he can get everyone out. For the third season in a row, the Milwaukee Brewers found a rummage sale reliever among the heap of arms that were cut loose by their teams before Opening Day. In 2016, it was Carlos Torres, who went on to post a 2.73 ERA in 82.1 innings for Milwaukee that year. Last season it was Jared Hughes, and he subsequently authored a 3.02 ERA across 59.2 innings for the Brew Crew. For 2018, Slingin’ David Stearns has hitched his wagon to veteran left-hander Dan Jennings, who was in camp with the Rays this spring before getting the boot as a...

Milwaukee Brewers make Dan Jennings signing official, send Ji-Man Choi to AAA after one game

As expected, Choi’s stay is a short one and the bullpen gets reinforcements after a 12-inning opener Ji-man Choi knew his latest stint in the majors would probably be a short one. After making the Opening Day roster, GM David Stearns was quoted as saying Choi “understood his roster situation,” implying that he likely wouldn’t be around for long. That seemed to be confirmed a little more than an hour later, when it was reported the Brewers were signing lefty reliever Dan Jennings. The move was made official today, and Choi was optioned down after making all of one (very important)...

Milwaukee Brewers sign left-handed reliever Dan Jennings

On the eve of the regular season, the Brewers add a reliever, as they have done the last few years. Well, it didn’t take the Brewers long to make a change to their Opening Day roster. In fact, they didn’t even make it to game 1. Earlier tonight, news came out that the Brewers have signed reliever Dan Jennings to a contract. Jennings had been released at the end of spring training by the Rays, who elected to pay him a portion of his non-guaranteed contract instead of keep him on the roster. Jennings was due to make $2.375 million, but the Rays will only pay a portion of that on his...

LAKELAND - The Rays didn't have a spot for LHP Dan Jennings in their bullpen, then they couldn't find anyone else to take him in trade.So they instead will release the veteran obtained from the White Sox last July, paying $574,597, which is one-fourth of his non-

Rays rumblings on Jennings, Hudson and an OF not named Bautista

Catching up on a couple- of Rays topics and rumors:• Would expect the Rays to have resolution on LHP Dan Jennings' status by around 2 p.m. today because if they don't find a trade they'd seem likely to put him on release waivers to pay only 1/4 of his $2.

Tampa Bay Rays announce bullpen for 2018 season

Veteran set up men Hudson, Jennings cut from the roster. The Rays made official their bullpen for the 2018 season, and there are some shockers: RHP Daniel Hudson and LHP Dan Jennings, two veterans acquired in the last six months to be high leverage arms in the Rays bullpen, have been informed they will not make the Rays roster. The two relievers would combine to make more than $8 million on the Rays 2018 roster that was projected to be the team’s highest ever at $77 million. Jennings can be released for 25% of his salary, Hudson cannot. Both players’ fates should be decided by...

Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: Opening Day Roster Nearly Set

There is only one decision left to be made It was a very busy weekend for the Tampa Bay Rays as they trimmed their spring roster, leaving just one decision to be made before the Rays take on the Boston Red Sox on Thursday. They made a slew of cuts, as they optioned Austin Pruitt and reassigned Adam Moore, Curt Casali, Kean Wong, Micah Johnson, and Jason Coats.
