Top Jake Diekman News

  • Mets' Jake Diekman: Agrees to terms with Mets

    Diekman signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Mets on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The deal also includes a vesting option for 2025. Diekman held a 2.18 ERA and 53:25 K:BB over 45.1 innings for the Rays last season after being released by the White Sox. The left-handed reliever has a long history of control problems and swing-and-miss ability and the Mets will be hoping for more of the latter than the former in 2024.

  • Rays' Jake Diekman: Returns from paternity leave

    Diekman was activated from the paternity list by the Rays on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Diekman missed the first three games of the series against the Blue Jays but is back for the finale. Ben Heller was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Rays' Jake Diekman: Placed on paternity list

    Diekman was placed on the paternity list Monday.

    Diekman will be away from the team for up to three days while with his expanding family. Right-hander Zack Burdi was called up from Triple-A Durham to replace him on the major-league roster in the meantime.

  • Rays' Jake Diekman: Signing with Tampa Bay

    Diekman and the Rays are set to finalize a major-league contract Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    After being released by the White Sox on Saturday, Diekman quickly found a new home with Tampa Bay. The left-hander struggled to an abysmal 7.94 ERA and 2.12 WHIP with 11 strikeouts over 11.1 innings in 13 appearances with Chicago this season. Once Diekman's deal is official, he'll provide Tampa Bay with another southpaw out of the bullpen after Garrett Cleavinger recently suffered what is likely a season-ending knee injury.

  • Rays' Jake Diekman: Signs on with Tampa Bay

    Diekman finalized a one-year contract with the Rays on Wednesday.

    Tampa Bay designated right-hander Chase Anderson for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster for Diekman. The 36-year-old will provide the Rays with another left-handed relief option in the wake of Garrett Cleavinger's (knee) season-ending injury. Diekman had posted a 7.94 ERA and 2.12 WHIP in 11.1 innings with the White Sox before being released over the weekend.

  • Jake Diekman: Released by White Sox

    Diekman was released by the White Sox on Saturday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Diekman owns a career 3.96 ERA over parts of 12 big-league seasons, but it's not clear that there's much left in his 36-year-old left arm. After he posted a 4.99 ERA last season, he owns a 7.94 ERA in 11.1 frames this year, walking more batters (13) than he struck out (11).

  • White Sox's Jake Diekman: Dropped from 40-man roster

    The White Sox designated Diekman for assignment Tuesday.

    Chicago needed to free up multiple 40-man roster spots as part of a slew of moves Tuesday. Diekman's tenure in Chicago went horribly, as he posted a 7.04 ERA over 39 appearances. The 36-year-old will look to catch on elsewhere after clearing waivers and might have to accept a minor-league contract at this point.

  • White Sox's Jake Diekman: Strong start with Pale Hose

    Diekman threw a scoreless seventh inning with two strikeouts to earn a hold Wednesday against the Royals.

    The White Sox have wasted no time utilizing their only acquisition at the trade deadline, as Diekman has pitched both Tuesday and Wednesday. He worked the sixth and seventh innings respectively, tallying a hold on each occasion. Though Diekman won't factor into the saves picture without a number of injuries in the bullpen, it appears that he will have a high-leverage role with his new club.

  • White Sox's Jake Diekman: Dealt to White Sox

    Diekman was traded to the White Sox from the Red Sox on Monday in exchange for catcher Reese McGuire, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Diekman has been fairly reliable this season outside of a few tough outings, but the Red Sox were willing to part with him in order to acquire another option behind the plate. Diekman has five wins and 12 holds this season, but he may not have as many opportunities to make a fantasy impact with his new squad.
