Twins' Cory Gearrin: Doesn't make Opening Day roster
Gearrin did not make Minnesota's 30-man Opening Day roster, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Gearrin had an opt-out date in his contract as a non-roster invitee to training camp, but apparently has decided to stay with the Twins. After posting a 1.99 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with the Giants in 2017, Gearrin has struggled over the past two seasons, posting a 3.91 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over 112.2 innings with five clubs over 2018 and 2019. He could be an option early in the season to be called up if there's an opening in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less

Twins' Cory Gearrin: Invited to Twins' camp
Gearrin signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Monday as a non-roster invitee.
After posting a 1.99 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with the Giants in 2017, Gearrin has struggled over the past two seasons, posting a 3.91 ERA and 1.39 WHIP over 112.2 innings with five clubs over 2018 and 2019. The 33-year-old will get the chance to work with the Twins' major-league coaching staff during spring training, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him appear in the majors at some point in 2020 given his past experience....

Yankees' Cory Gearrin: Toe tap deemed legal
Gearrin's toe tap has been determined by league officials to be within the rules, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Gearrin was charged with a controversial balk after making his usual move to the plate against the Mariners on Monday. The league reviewed the call and informed Yankees manager Aaron Boone that the move is fine and should not be a problem moving forward. Gearrin was claimed by the Yankees on Friday after being released by Seattle two days earlier.... See More ... See Less

Yankees' Cory Gearrin: Gets call to majors

Mariners' Cory Gearrin: Opening Wednesday's game
Gearrin will serve as the opener Wednesday at Tampa Bay, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Gearrin also worked as an opener once in June, but he's otherwise been utilized as a more traditional middle reliever. The 33-year-old has a 3.79 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 37:20 K:BB over 40.1 innings this season. Lefty Wade LeBlanc is expected to follow as Wednesday's primary pitcher.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Cory Gearrin: Still struggling with consistency
Gearrin, who allowed a solo home run and also recorded both a walk and a strikeout over two-thirds of an inning against the Rangers on Monday, owns a 5.93 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and .316 BAA over the 13.2 innings covering his last 16 appearances.
The reliever has had trouble stringing together extended stretches of effective pitching over the last month-plus, managing no more than three consecutive scoreless appearances. Gearrin does have a pair of holds over the aforementioned span, but his other previously cited metrics underscore the degree of his inconsistency. The 33-year-old right-hander is likely to have an opportunity to right the ship over the balance of the season, as manager Scott Servais has continued to afford him fairly regular work despite his recent struggles....

Mariners' Cory Gearrin: Slated to open Monday
Gearrin will serve as the opener for Monday's game against the Astros, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Gearrin will likely pitch one or two innings before giving way to left-hander Wade LeBlanc, who is expected to cover the majority of innings Monday. In 26 appearances this season (all in relief), Gearrin owns a 3.22 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 27:13 K:BB in 22.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Cory Gearrin: Hitting stride in bullpen
Gearrin has generated six consecutive scoreless appearances to open May and owns an 0-1 record, a 3.63 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP and six holds across 17.1 innings this season.
The right-hander had his share of hiccups in April, a month in which he posted a 5.59 ERA by allowing at least one earned run in four of 11 appearances. However, he's mostly evened things out in the current month, lowering his ERA to 4.85 on the strength of his aforementioned string of scoreless efforts.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Cory Gearrin: In saves mix?
Hunter Strickland is expected to receive an MRI after experiencing shoulder tightness Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports, and Gearrin is on the short list of possible replacements for the ninth inning.
Anthony Swarzak (shoulder) and Shawn Armstrong (oblique) are hurt too, though Swarzak seems to be inching close to a return. If the M's need someone to step in for Strickland in the interim, it could very well be Gearrin, who split time between three clubs last year. He doesn't throw hard but can throw a pretty wicked slider. The right-hander has leaned on the breaking stuff more often early on this season, to impressive results in the small sample (one hit allowed, one walk, three strikeouts against 10 batters faced). Matt Festa and lefty Roenis Elias could also be in the mix.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Cory Gearrin: Solid in relief during win
Gearrin worked a scoreless seventh inning in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday, recording a strikeout.
Gearrin has gotten his Mariners tenure off to an efficient start, with Thursday's effort the latest example. The veteran reliever needed a quick 13 pitches, nine of which he threw for strikes, to get through his one frame. Gearrin had also worked a scoreless, one-strikeout inning versus the Athletics on Opening Day in Japan on March 20 and should serve as a solid component of the middle-relief corps for manager Scott Servais in 2019....

Mariners' Cory Gearrin: Heads to Seattle
Gearrin (triceps) signed a one-year contract with the Mariners on Thursday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Gearrin spent time in three organizations in 2018, producing a 3.77 ERA and a 53:21 K:BB across 57.1 innings. He's not a flashy pitcher as his modest strikeout numbers suggest, but he figures to be a staple of the Mariners' bullpen as a middle reliever throughout the season.... See More ... See Less
