  • Phillies' Dylan Covey: Avoids arbitration with Philly

    Covey signed a one-year contract with the Phillies on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

    Covey was claimed off waivers from the Dodgers this past May and went on to deliver a solid 3.69 ERA across 39 innings of work with Philly. He projects to fill a long-relief role in 2024.

  • Phillies' Dylan Covey: Placed on injured list

    The Phillies placed Covey on the 15-day injured list Saturday with lower back pain.

    Covey served as a solid middle-relief option for Philadelphia this season and will finish the 2023 regular-season campaign with a 3.77 ERA and 1.51 WHIP through 43 innings across 29 appearances. Luis Ortiz was promoted from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move.

  • Phillies' Dylan Covey: Takes loss in relief

    Covey dropped to 1-2 after giving up two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out two in 1.1 innings of relief in Monday's 9-8 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    With Matt Strahm working as the Phillies' opening pitcher on the night, Covey looked like a candidate to serve as a bulk reliever. However, manager Rob Thomson instead treated the series opener as more of a bullpen day, as five pitchers were used to cover eight innings. Since limiting this same Diamondbacks squad to one run over five innings in a starting role May 23, Covey has been used in relief in each of his last four appearances and hasn't covered more than two innings on any occasion. The Phillies are still running out a four-man rotation at the moment, but Covey doesn't look as though he'll be the clear-cut choice to pitch on days that a fifth starter is needed.

  • Phillies' Dylan Covey: Chased in first inning

    Covey (0-1) allowed seven runs (five earned) on six hits Sunday. He recorded two outs and took a loss against Atlanta.

    It was a nightmare outing for Covey as he was taken deep twice and coughed up seven total runs without making it out of the first inning. He gave up just three runs over nine innings in his first two MLB outings this season, but Sunday's meltdown shot his ERA up to 7.45. It's unclear if the Phillies will give the 31-year-old righty another turn in the rotation.

  • Phillies' Dylan Covey: Starting Sunday

    Covey will start Sunday against Atlanta, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Covey was solid in his Phillies debut Tuesday, surrendering just one run through five innings as a bulk reliever while striking out six batters. His performance has earned him a promotion into Philadelphia's rotation, and another strong performance could ensure he remains there.

  • Phillies' Dylan Covey: Solid outing as bulk reliever

    Covey didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Diamondbacks, allowing one run on five hits and a walk over five relief innings. He struck out six.

    After Matt Strahm worked two innings as the opener and put the Phillies in a 2-1 hole, Covey entered the game and gave his team a chance to mount a comeback, tossing 55 of 91 pitches for strikes and exiting with the score tied 3-3. The right-hander has been solid in two appearances as a bulk reliever so far this season, although he doesn't yet have a decision to show for it. Covey will likely continue filling this role for the time being as the Phillies try to patch together the back of their rotation in the wake of Bailey Falter's demotion.

  • Phillies' Dylan Covey: Primed to be primary pitcher

    Covey is set to be the primary pitcher in Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Covey was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on Saturday, and he is on track to make his appearance with his new club a few days later, as Matt Stahm will open Tuesday's contest with Covey slated to follow him. Covey tossed 63 pitches in a game with the Dodgers last week and at least 72 pitches in all seven minor-league games he appeared in earlier this season, so there should not be a major limitation on his workload.

  • Phillies' Dylan Covey: Claimed off waivers from Dodgers

    Covey was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on Saturday from the Dodgers, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Covey was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Thursday, and the right-hander not only is now a part of the Philadelphia organization, but he's likely to start Tuesday, according to Gelb. Whether Covey sticks around for the Phillies going forward will at least partially be determined by how he pitches against the Diamondbacks come Tuesday.

  • Dodgers' Dylan Covey: Designated for assignment

    The Dodgers designated Covey for assignment Thursday, Eric Stephen of reports.

    One day after pitching in the majors for the first time since 2020, Covey has once again been cast off the Dodgers' 40-man roster. The 31-year-old righty holds a 4.22 ERA and 1.44 WHIP through 32 innings in Triple-A this season. It's possible Covey gets claimed by a team in search of a multi-inning reliever, but his career 6.54 ERA in the majors lowers his chances.

  • Dodgers' Dylan Covey: Tosses four frames in debut

    Covey did not factor in the decision against Minnesota on Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out three batters over four innings.

    After being called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City earlier in the day, Covey was pressed into early action when Dustin May was removed after one inning due to an elbow injury. Covey helped ease the strain on Los Angeles' bullpen with four decent frames, giving up a pair of solo homers but otherwise keeping Minnesota from scoring. The right-hander got a big boost in the sixth when Victor Gonzalez inherited his bases-loaded, no-out jam and managed to keep the Twins from pushing any runs across the plate. Covey had been working as a starter in the minors, helping him manage Wednesday's unexpectedly large workload. It stands to reason that he'll be held out for at least a few days since he tossed 63 pitches in the outing.

  • Dodgers' Dylan Covey: Called up from Triple-A

    The Dodgers selected Covey's contract from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Covey has made seven appearances for Oklahoma City in 2023, logging a 4.22 ERA and 1.44 WHIP over 32 innings. The right-hander will provide a fresh arm for the Dodgers' bullpen with the ability to work multiple innings.

  • Dodgers' Dylan Covey: Gets minor-league deal with Dodgers

    Covey signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Friday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Covey last appeared in the majors in 2020, compiling a 7.07 ERA and 1.43 WHIP with 11 strikeouts over 14 innings in eight games for the Red Sox. Considering those numbers were an upgrade over his prior season with the White Sox, the right-hander is very unlikely to see much action in the big leagues in 2023.

  • Red Sox's Dylan Covey: Outrighted to minors

    Covey was outrighted to the minors by the Red Sox on Wednesday.

    Covey worked mainly as a starter during three seasons with the White Sox, but he transitioned to a relief role with Boston in 2020. The right-hander was shuffled between the major-league roster and the alternate training site during the 2020 campaign, posting a 7.07 ERA and 1.43 WHIP over 14 innings across eight appearances. He'll now be cast off the 40-man roster heading into the offseason, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him in the majors at some point in 2021.

  • Red Sox's Dylan Covey: Returns to majors

    Covey was recalled by the Red Sox on Thursday.

    Covey spent nearly a month in Pawtucket after putting forth inconsistent results during his first major-league stint of the season. However, he'll return to Boston's bullpen after Austin Brice (lat) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Covey will likely pitch in low-leverage situations.

  • Red Sox's Dylan Covey: Optioned off roster

    Covey was optioned to Boston's alternate training site Sunday.

    Covey has made four relief appearances for the Red Sox this season but hasn't exactly impressed, allowing five runs in 6.1 innings. He'll make way on the roster for Chris Mazza, who starts against the Yankees on Sunday.

  • Red Sox's Dylan Covey: Likely to be used as reliever

    Covey is expected to pitch as a reliever, Christopher Smith of reports.

    Covey was called up Saturday after Boston optioned Ryan Weber after three poor starts. While Covey was a starter for the White Sox the last few seasons, the Red Sox plan to call up a pitcher from the alternate camp to take Weber's spot in the rotation. The list of candidates includes Brian Johnson, Kyle Hart and Tanner Houck.

  • Red Sox's Dylan Covey: Recalled by Boston

    Covey was recalled by the Red Sox on Saturday.

    Covey began the season on the major-league roster but headed to the alternate training site after he had a rough appearance early in the season. Ryan Weber was optioned to the alternate training site to make room in the rotation.

  • Red Sox's Dylan Covey: Optioned to Triple-A

    Covey was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Covey earned a spot with Boston's pitching staff to begin the regular season, but he'll be removed from the major-league club after a rough relief outing against the Orioles on Saturday. The right-hander allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out two in Saturday's loss. Covey could return to the majors at some point this season, but he's struggled in the big leagues in each of the last three seasons.

  • Red Sox's Dylan Covey: Gets spot on 40-man roster

    The Red Sox selected Covey's contract Wednesday.

    Covey had been attending summer camp with Tampa Bay as a non-roster invitee, but he'll now get a spot on the 40-man roster and 30-man Opening Day roster two days after Boston acquired him in a trade. The Red Sox have yet to clarify his role, but Covey looks like a logical fit in a thin rotation lacking in any healthy, established options beyond Nathan Eovaldi and Martin Perez. If Boston decides to go with other alternatives at the back end of the rotation, Covey would likely work as a long man out of the bullpen.
