Angels' Grant Dayton: Re-signs with Angels
Dayton re-signed a minor-league deal with the Angels on Wednesday and was assigned to Triple-A Salt Lake.
After originally latching on with the Angels in May, Dayton had the option of opting out of his minor-league contract to pursue a big-league opportunity elsewhere. Instead, the veteran reliever decided to remain with Los Angeles. The southpaw has posted a 2.61 ERA, 0..92 WHIP and 29:6 K:BB across 20.2 innings with two Triple-A clubs this season and figures to be near the front of the line for a call-up if the Angels need a left-handed reliever....

Angels' Grant Dayton: Signs with Angels
Dayton signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Saturday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Dayton opted out of a minor-league deal with the Marlins last weekend, and he'll settle for another minor-league contract with the Angels. The left-hander posted a 2.35 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 15.1 innings over 12 appearances at Triple-A Jacksonville this year, and he'll likely report to Triple-A Salt Lake to begin his time with his new organization....

Dayton intends to opt out of his contract with the Marlins on Sunday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com

The southpaw will choose to become a free agent Sunday, likely in hopes of landing a major-league deal elsewhere.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Grant Dayton: Agrees to terms with Miami
Dayton signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Monday, which includes an invitation to spring training, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Dayton appears to be back to full strength after inking a MiLB deal and will set his sights on competing for a role in the Marlins' bullpen. He appeared in 13 games during the 2021 season with Atlanta, posting a 6.23 ERA and 1.62 WHIP with a 14:6 K:BB across 13 frames but missed a good chunk of the campaign due to shoulder inflammation. The southpaw went under the knife in November of 2021 to clean up the AC join in his left shoulder, an operation that wasn't expected to disrupt his normal offseason throwing program.... See More ...

Grant Dayton: Cut loose by Atlanta
Dayton was released by Atlanta on Saturday.
Dayton missed most of the year with shoulder inflammation, though he did make a single rehab appearance in September, which could bode well for his readiness for spring training. He struggled to a 6.23 ERA in 13 innings prior to the injury, and he's heading into his age-33 season, but he still owns a 3.43 career ERA, which could keep him somewhat interesting on the open market....

Braves' Grant Dayton: Begins rehab assignment
Dayton (shoulder) began a rehab assignment at Atlanta's complex league affiliate Tuesday.
Dayton has been out with a shoulder issue since early June. Given the length of his absence, his rehab assignment is unlikely to be a short one, but he still appears to have time to make it back before the end of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Grant Dayton: Transferred to 60-day IL
Dayton (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
Dayton has been sidelined with left shoulder inflammation since June 5.

Dayton (thigh) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

Braves' Grant Dayton: Ineffective against Arizona
Dayton gave up two runs on three hits and a walk over one inning of relief in the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.
The lefty threw only 15 of his 30 pitches for strikes after entering the game to begin the fifth inning, digging the hole a little deeper for Atlanta after they were already down 3-0. Dayton has been tagged for multiple runs in two of his five appearances to begin the season, saddling him with a 7.94 ERA through 5.2 innings, and he's unlikely to see high-leverage work any time soon....

Braves' Grant Dayton: Set for bullpen role
Dayton appears set to make Atlanta's Opening Day roster, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
The team's decision to carry 10 relievers helped Dayton's case, as did the fact that he's out of minor-league options. Still, he'll be shut out of high-leverage work in a 'pen that already features Will Smith, A.J. Minter and Tyler Matzek from the port side, and Dayton's efforts in Grapefruit League play (6.43 ERA, 7:4 K:BB and three homers allowed in seven innings) were far from impressive. The 33-year-old lefty could be the reliever cut loose when the team elects to lengthen its bench later in the year.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Grant Dayton: Reaches deal with Braves
Dayton agreed Wednesday with the Braves on a one-year, $900,000 contract, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
The southpaw was one of the Braves' more reliable relievers in 2020, finishing the 60-game campaign with a 2.30 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 27.1 innings. The Braves mostly avoided using him in higher-leverage situations, however, as he wasn't credited with a save or hold in any of his 18 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Grant Dayton: Picks up win No. 2
Dayton (2-0) allowed one hit while striking out two batters in 1.2 innings of scoreless work Wednesday as he earned the win over the Marlins.
Dayton entered with one out in the fourth for the struggling Tommy Milone and was unable to strand the two runners Milone allowed on base before exiting the game. He then came back out for the fifth and retired the side to finish up his day. Dayton owns a 2.25 ERA and an impressive 22:4 K:BB across 20 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Grant Dayton: Earns rare win Friday
Dayton (1-0) tossed one scoreless inning Friday as he earned the win against the Mets. He allowed one hit and no walks while striking out two.
Dayton was called on in the eighth inning Friday with Atlanta trailing by four runs, but he was able to pick up his second win over the past four seasons after the Braves plated five runs in the bottom of the frame. The 32-year-old likely won't be utilized in many high-leverage situations this year despite his rare win against the Mets.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Grant Dayton: Rough spring could hurt chances
Dayton posted an ugly 11.12 ERA, 2.29 WHIP and 3:3 K:BB through 5.2 innings before spring training was suspended.
The left-hander coughed up 10 hits in Grapefruit League action, two of which left the yard. Dayton was expected to fill a low-leverage role in the Atlanta bullpen, but the delayed start to the regular season and the potential for a compacted schedule when MLB resumes -- not to mention his shaky spring performance -- could cost him a spot on the 26-man roster if the team decides it needs more length to support the rotation....
