Angels' Kyle Barraclough: Loses 40-man spot
The Angels designated Barraclough for assignment Monday.
He'll cede his spot on the 40-man roster to outfielder Dillon Thomas, whom the Angels claimed off waivers from the Astros on Monday. Before he was demoted to Triple-A Salt Lake on May 30, the 32-year-old reliever made eight appearances for the Angels and gave up three earned runs on seven hits and four walks over nine innings....

Angels' Kyle Barraclough: Heads to minors
Barraclough was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Barraclough has accrued a 3.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over nine innings so far this season. After starting the campaign with five straight scoreless appearances, he's surrendered three runs over his last three outings and will make his way to Triple-A following Monday's transaction. The team has yet to announce a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Kyle Barraclough: Joins big-league roster
Barraclough was called up by the Angels on Saturday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Barraclough owns a career 3.63 ERA over parts of six big-league seasons, though that number jumps to 5.59 across 46.2 frames since the start of the 2019 season. He'll give the Angels another arm in the bullpen, but he'll have to improve on that recent performance if he's to stick around.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Kyle Barraclough: Signs with Angels
Barraclough has signed a minor-league contract with the Angels, Chris Kilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.
Barraclough made 10 relief appearances with the Twins in 2021 but spent most of the year in the minors. Across 32 outings at the Triple-A level, he logged a 2.75 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 39.1 innings. The right-hander will likely compete for a spot in the major-league bullpen this spring.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Kyle Barraclough: Sent to Triple-A
Barraclough was outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.
Barraclough finished the season on the big-league roster, but the Twins have now cleared him off the 40-man roster as he'll hit free agency in the offseason. The right-hander appeared in 10 big-league games and had a 5.54 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 18:8 K:BB across 13 innings.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Kyle Barraclough: Joins big-league bullpen
The Twins recalled Barraclough from Triple-A St. Paul ahead of Monday's game against the Yankees.
He'll move up to the 28-man active roster as a replacement for outfielder/designated hitter Brent Rooker (personal), who was placed on the paternity list. Expect the veteran reliever to serve in a low-leverage role out of the Minnesota bullpen while he's with the big club.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Kyle Barraclough: Optioned to Triple-A
Barraclough was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Friday.
The 31-year-old righty hasn't looked good in his three major-league appearances this season, allowing four runs in 3.1 innings of work. He's been far better in the minors, striking out 38.7 percent of opposing batters en route to a 3.00 ERA, but the struggling Twins may prioritize giving opportunities to younger players down the stretch....

Twins' Kyle Barraclough: Joins major-league roster
Barraclough's contract was selected by the Twins on Thursday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Barraclough signed a minor-league contract with the Twins in mid-June and posted a 2.86 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 22 innings across 18 relief appearances at Triple-A St. Paul. The 31-year-old will now be available to make his first major-league appearance since 2019 as part of Minnesota's bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Kyle Barraclough: Links up with Twins
Barraclough signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Sunday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
The right-hander was released by the Yankees on Friday and didn't take long to latch on with a new organization. Barraclough worked at Triple-A before being let go and posted a 3.21 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB across 14 innings.... See More ... See Less
Kyle Barraclough: Parts ways with Yankees
Barraclough was released by the Yankees on Friday, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.
The right-hander inked a minor-league deal with New York in February and has been at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre all season, but he's now heading to free agency. Barraclough pitched well enough with a 3.21 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB across 14 innings, so he could receive interest from other organizations, though it's worth noting he hasn't pitched in the majors since 2019....

Yankees' Kyle Barraclough: Bound for MiLB camp
The Yankees reassigned Barraclough to their minor-league camp Wednesday.
Barraclough was previously a high-leverage reliever for the Marlins as recently as the 2018 season, but his effectiveness has waned over the past two years. After being granted his release from the Padres last summer, Barraclough didn't appear in affiliated ball in 2020, and he'll likely have to prove himself at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before garnering a serious look with the Yankees....

Yankees' Kyle Barraclough: Gets minors deal with Yankees
Barraclough signed with the Yankees as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Barraclough has been a high-leverage reliever in the past, posting a 2.87 ERA and a 31.7 percent strikeout rate over the first two years of his career. He struggled to a 4.74 ERA and 24.4 percent strikeout rate over the next two seasons, however, and he failed to pitch a single inning in 2020 after being cut in July by the Padres. He could play a role for the Yankees if they can help him recapture his early career form, but his career 14.1 percent walk rate will likely continue to sink him unless he can get his previously elite strikeout numbers back....

Kyle Barraclough: Becomes free agent
Barraclough elected free agency Tuesday.
Barraclough evidently wasn't going to play a role in San Diego this season, so he'll wind up looking for work elsewhere. The 30-year-old owns a solid 3.53 ERA in 252.1 career big-league innings, but he slipped to a 5.61 mark last year, making him unlikely to be a particularly appealing candidate on the open market....

Padres' Kyle Barraclough: Moved to minor-league camp
Barraclough was optioned to minor-league camp Wednesday.
Barraclough signed with the Padres in December and had a chance to earn a spot in the big-league bullpen, but he struggled with a 13.50 ERA and 2.25 WHIP in Cactus League play. Once a promising high-leverage reliever with the Marlins, Barraclough will start the season in the minors and attempt to earn his way back to the major-league level.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Kyle Barraclough: Inks minors deal with San Diego
Barraclough signed a minor-league contract Tuesday with the Padres that includes an invitation to spring training, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Barraclough elected free agency after being designated for assignment at the end of October, and he'll receive his next opportunity in San Diego. The 29-year-old never got his feet under him in 2019, struggling to a 5.61 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 40:21 K:BB over 33.2 innings between the Nationals and Giants. Barraclough was a solid bullpen piece for the Marlins as recently as 2017, so he could carve out a role in the Friars' bullpen if he can turn things around.... See More ... See Less
Kyle Barraclough: Elects free agency
Barraclough cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Sacramento but elected to become a free agent Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Barraclough was expected to be a part of the solution for the Nationals' bullpen entering the 2019 season after he was acquired from the Marlins, but he delivered a 6.66 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB over 25.2 innings before he was traded to the Giants. The 29-year-old's previous success should lead to some interested teams in free agency, but he could be forced to settle for a minor-league deal in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Kyle Barraclough: Designated for assignment
Barraclough was designated for assignment by the Giants on Wednesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The 29-year-old recorded a career-worst 5.61 ERA with a 1.75 WHIP over 33.2 innings pitched last season between the Nationals and Giants, and he now finds himself off the 40-man roster. Given his major-league experience and relative success in the past, it wouldn't be surprising to see a team claim him off waivers, but his struggles to limit baserunners over the past two seasons may cause some concern. Left-hander Tyler Anderson was claimed off waivers from the Rockies in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Kyle Barraclough: Gets callup
The Giants selected Barraclough's contract from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.
With 11 saves and 75 holds to his name over parts of five big-league seasons, Barraclough brings ample experience to the San Francisco bullpen, but the ugly form he displayed with the Nationals earlier in 2019 makes it unlikely that he'll capture a meaningful setup role right off the bat. Despite having a need for reliable relief arms, Washington couldn't justify keeping Barraclough around after he posted a 6.66 ERA and 1.75 WHIP across his 33 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Kyle Barraclough: Sticks with Giants
Barraclough cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Barraclough was designated for assignment by the Giants on Thursday but will remain with the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 29-year-old has endured a season to forget in the majors with a 6.66 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB over 25.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Kyle Barraclough: Dropped from 40-man
Barraclough was designated for assignment by the Giants on Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
The Giants are trying to pass Barraclough through waivers less than a week after claiming him from the Nationals. The right-hander has struggled at the big-league level this season, posting a 6.66 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB in 25.2 innings. This move frees up a 40-man spot for Fernando Abad.... See More ...
