Aaron Fletcher: Cut by San Francisco
The Giants released Fletcher on Thursday.
Fletcher was one of two relievers with prior MLB experience cut loose by the Giants' Triple-A affiliate on Thursday, with right-hander Trevor Hildenberger also receiving his walking papers. A waiver pickup from the Pirates last July, Fletcher was moved off the Giants' 40-man roster shortly thereafter and never saw big-league action with San Francisco. The 27-year-old southpaw surrendered eight earned runs on eight hits and seven walks across three innings over his three appearances out of the Sacramento bullpen this season.... See More ...

Giants' Aaron Fletcher: Outrighted to Triple-A
The Giants outrighted Fletcher to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The left-handed reliever was moved off the 40-man roster after San Francisco acquired southpaw Alex Young from the Guardians earlier Monday. Fletcher produced a 1.43 ERA at the Triple-A level during his time in Pirates organization earlier this season and appears worthy of an opportunity in the majors, but his lack of a 40-man roster spot will make it more difficult for him to get another look out of the Giants bullpen....

Giants' Aaron Fletcher: Claimed by Giants
Fletcher was claimed off waivers by the Giants on Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Fletcher was designated for assignment by the Pirates last week but will land a spot with the Giants less than a week later.

Pirates' Aaron Fletcher: DFA'd by Pittsburgh
Fletcher was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Friday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Pirates' Aaron Fletcher: Sent back down
Fletcher was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday.
Fletcher covered three innings in Friday's blowout loss to the Brewers, and while he pitched well (no hits or runs allowed), he is going to be unavailable for a few days. With that in mind, it made sense for the Pirates to swap him out for Saturday's starter, Bryse Wilson. The left-handed Fletcher has a 6.94 ERA for the season, but after his success Friday, he seems likely to get another shot in Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less

Pirates' Aaron Fletcher: Back with Bucs for doubleheader
The Pirates recalled Fletcher from Triple-A Indianapolis ahead of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Tigers, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Even though Fletcher was optioned to Triple-A one day ago, he'll be eligible to rejoin the Pirates since he's being designated as the 27th man for the twin bill. Unless the Pirates lose a pitcher to an injury Wednesday or decide to option another player to the minors, Fletcher will likely be headed back to Indianapolis at the conclusion of the twin bill. He's made eight relief appearances for Pittsburgh this season, giving up nine earned runs over 8.2 innings.... See More ... See Less

Fletcher was claimed off waivers by the Pirates in mid-March after being designated for assignment by Seattle, and he tossed 4.2 scoreless innings across five relief appearances this spring.

He's made brief major-league appearances with Seattle across the last two years but seems most likely to begin the 2022 season at Triple-A Indianapolis.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Aaron Fletcher: Dropped from 40-man roster
The Mariners designated Fletcher for assignment Sunday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Seattle dropped both Fletcher and catcher Jose Godoy from the 40-man roster Sunday, presumably to clear up openings for potential signings or trade acquisitions. If Fletcher goes unclaimed off waivers, he'll stick around in the organization and will likely participate in big-league spring training, though he'll most likely end up opening the campaign at Triple-A Tacoma. Fletcher made four appearances out of the Seattle bullpen in 2021, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and a walk over 3.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
