Marlins' Devin Smeltzer: Designated for assignment
Smeltzer was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Thursday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
It is the second DFA in less than a week for Smeltzer, who's surrendered 14 runs -- 12 earned -- in 15.2 innings this season at the major-league level. He passed through waivers unclaimed last time around.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Devin Smeltzer: Clears waivers, outrighted
The Marlins outrighted Smeltzer to Triple-A Jacksonville after he cleared waivers Tuesday.
Smeltzer was designated for assignment last week after the Marlins selected the contract of Johan Quezada from Jacksonville. In 12 innings with Miami prior to being removed from the roster, Smeltzer registered a 6.75 ERA and 1.83 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Devin Smeltzer: Back with big club
The Marlins selected Smeltzer from Triple-A Jacksonville on Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Miami designated Smeltzer for assignment Friday and outrighted him to Triple-A on Tuesday, but he'll be back with the big club after the Marlins placed first baseman Garrett Cooper (ear) on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. The lefty has a brutal 6.75 ERA in 12 innings this season, but he has held opponents scoreless over his last pair of appearances.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Devin Smeltzer: Designated for assignment
Smeltzer was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Friday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Johan Quezada will join the club in a corresponding move. Smeltzer, 27, had struggled to a 6.75 ERA, 1.83 WHIP and 8:4 K:BB through 12 innings this season with Miami after performing pretty well in a swingman role last year with the Twins. He could draw interest on waivers.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Devin Smeltzer: Solid in no-decision
Smeltzer didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Guardians, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over four innings in a 6-1 win. He struck out three.
Making his first start of the season after a couple relief appearances, the former Twin gave the Marlins a solid outing but wasn't able to qualify for the win, exiting after 65 pitches (42 strikes). It was an impressive turnaround for Smeltzer, who served up four homers in his first five innings this year, and with the Miami rotation in tatters right now due to a rash of biceps injuries to Trevor Rogers, Johnny Cueto and Sandy Alcantara, the 27-year-old southpaw could get stretched out further to handle more than just a spot start in a twin bill....

Marlins' Devin Smeltzer: Draws spot start in doubleheader
Smeltzer is scheduled to start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader in Cleveland, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Smeltzer has made both of his appearances for Miami to date out of the bullpen, working four innings on April 10 in Philadelphia and one inning in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Giants. Considering Smeltzer threw 23 pitches in that outing and is now taking the hill on just two days' rest, he'll likely be in store for a relatively light workload Saturday even though he's starting. The Marlins are expected to select Jeff Lindgren's contract from Triple-A Jacksonville to have him serve as the 27th man for the twin bill, and he could be tasked with covering the bulk of the innings once Smeltzer exits the contest....

Marlins' Devin Smeltzer: Contract selected from Triple-A
The Marlins selected Smeltzer's contract from Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Smeltzer gives the Marlins a fresh arm and replaces Daniel Castano on the roster with Castano sent down to Jacksonville in the corresponding move. Smeltzer allowed five runs over five innings in his only appearance with the Jumbo Shrimp before the promotion.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Devin Smeltzer: Reassigned to minors camp
Smeltzer was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Smeltzer had a strong spring debut against the Astros on Feb. 27, but he proceeded to give up seven earned runs on 13 hits over 5.2 innings in his next two appearances. He is capable of serving as a spot starter and/or long reliever, but Smeltzer is not on the 40-man roster, so he could spend most or all the season at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Devin Smeltzer: Lands with Marlins
Smeltzer agreed to a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Tuesday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports.
Smeltzer can earn $1 million if he cracks the MLB roster in Miami, per Alvarez-Montes. The 27-year-old left-hander served as a fairly valuable swingman for the Twins in 2022, delivering an overall 3.71 ERA with 40 strikeouts and 19 walks in 70.1 innings -- 12 starts, three relief appearances. He may have a tough time cracking the Marlins' rotation, even with Pablo Lopez gone, but there is a path for Smeltzer to log a sizable workload in a versatile role.... See More ... See Less
Devin Smeltzer: Reaches free agency
Smeltzer elected free agency Tuesday after clearing outright waivers.
Smeltzer has been with the Twins since being acquired from the Dodgers in the July 2018 deal that sent infielder Brian Dozier to Los Angeles, but he may try his luck with a new organization now that he's on the open market for the first time in his career. The 27-year-old lefty made 15 appearances (12 starts) at the big-league level in 2022, going 5-2 with a 3.71 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 40:19 K:BB in 70.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Loses roster spot
Smeltzer was placed on outright waivers by the Twins on Tuesday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
Smeltzer spent the majority of the 2022 season with the Twins, and he maintained a respectable 3.71 ERA and 1.22 WHIP across 70.1 innings. However, his contact-heavy approach resulted in some inconsistent performances, as he allowed six or more earned runs in two of his 12 starts. Smeltzer will now be subjected to waivers and could find a new club relatively quickly.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Sent down by Twins
Smeltzer was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Smeltzer was called up by the Twins last week and allowed three hits and two walks while striking out two in 4.2 scoreless innings over two relief appearances with the major-league club. However, he'll head back to St. Paul after Jovani Moran was recalled Monday.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Called up Wednesday
Smeltzer was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Smeltzer was sent down Monday but will rejoin the Twins two days later after Cole Sands (elbow) was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday. Smeltzer has made 12 of his 13 appearances in the majors this year as a starter, but he'll likely provide length out of the bullpen now that he's back with the big-league club.... See More ...

Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Sent down
Smeltzer was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul following Monday's game against the Rangers, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Smeltzer saw just one outing during his latest stint with the big club, allowing one run on five hits while fanning one over three frames Saturday against the Rangers. He was demoted to make room for Tuesday's starter, Aaron Sanchez.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Recalled from Triple-A
Smeltzer was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
While Tyler Mahle (shoulder inflammation) is going to the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move, Miller reports that Smeltzer is with the big club to pitch out of the bullpen against the lefty-heavy Rangers. Smeltzer has a 4.02 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 62.2 innings across 12 starts in the majors this season.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Optioned to Triple-A
Smeltzer was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday.
Smeltzer will return to Triple-A after serving as the Twins' fifth starter since late May. The 26-year-old owns a 4.02 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season over 12 starts, but over his last three outings he's produced a far less ideal 8.76 ERA and 2.03 WHIP. Smeltzer was moved in order to open a roster spot for Chris Archer (hip), who was activated from the 15-day injured list Sunday. Minnesota won't need a fifth starter again until the first week of August, at which point Smeltzer will likely be called up from St. Paul.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Goes three innings in no-decision
Smeltzer didn't factor into the decision during Friday's 6-2 defeat at the hands of the White Sox, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks with one strikeout in three innings.
Smeltzer permitted both runs on four baserunners in the first inning but was able to prevent Chicago from scoring over the next two frames. Manager Rocco Baldelli opted to remove the 26-year-old with the top of Chicago's order due up for a third time despite having tossed only 67 pitches -- his second lowest total in 12 turns. Smeltzer concludes the first half with a 4.02 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 37 strikeouts in 62.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Allows seven runs
Smeltzer did not factor into the decision Saturday against the Rangers, allowing seven runs on eight hits while striking out two and walking three across 3.1 innings.
Smeltzer had two rough innings Saturday, allowing three runs in the second inning and four runs in the fourth before being pulled. All seven of the runs Smeltzer allowed came on home runs. The lefty threw 50 of 81 pitches for strikes across 3.1 frames. It was arguably his worst outing of the year and ballooned his ERA to 3.92. Smeltzer has given up six home runs over his past two starts.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Gives up three homers in loss
Smeltzer (4-2) gave up three earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three over six innings to take the loss in a 3-1 defeat to the Orioles on Sunday.
Despite pitching a quality start, Smeltzer struck out only three Orioles and was done in by three solo shots to take his second loss of the year. His 85 pitches were the least that he has thrown since June 5th. The 26-year-old left-hander depends on precision control since his fastball tops out at around 90 mph. The Orioles took advantage of his lack of velocity by pouncing on a couple of 88 mph fastballs for home runs. Smeltzer is expected to take the mound Saturday at Texas.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Devin Smeltzer: Fans nine in no-decision
Smeltzer didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Guardians, allowing one run on four hits over six innings. He struck out nine without walking a batter.
The southpaw established a new season high in strikeouts as he tossed 63 of 95 pitches for strikes, but Smeltzer had to settle for a no-decision as the Twins didn't get on the board until the seventh inning in an eventual 3-2 loss. The quality start was Smeltzer's fifth in nine big-league outings this season, and he sports a 2.86 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB through 50.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
