Rockies' Ben Braymer: Inks minors deal
Braymer signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Sunday.

Ben Braymer: Released by Nationals
Braymer was released by the Nationals on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Braymer made his major-league debut for the Nationals in 2020 and posted a 1.23 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 7.1 innings over three appearances (one start). However, he spent the last two seasons at Triple-A Rochester and logged a 5.93 ERA, 98:80 K:BB and 1.63 WHIP in 118.1 innings over 36 appearances (22 starts). While the southpaw was protected from the Rule 5 draft in 2019, he lost his spot on the 40-man roster last year and will now part ways with the organization.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ben Braymer: Clears waivers
Braymer cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
Braymer was designated for assignment Sunday but will remain in the organization going forward. The southpaw made seven starts for Triple-A Rochester earlier in the year and posted a 6.75 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in 28 innings.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ben Braymer: Removed from 40-man roster
The Nationals designated Braymer for assignment Sunday.
Washington cast Braymer off the 40-man roster to clear a spot for outfielder Gerardo Parra, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding move. Braymer had pitched exclusively for Rochester this season, posting a 6.75 ERA and 1.75 WHIP across 28 innings over seven starts.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ben Braymer: Brought up for twin bill
The Nationals recalled Braymer from their alternate training site ahead of Wednesday's doubleheader with Atlanta, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The reliever is being designated as Washington's 27th man for Wednesday, so he'll most likely get optioned after the doubleheader is completed. Braymer appeared in three games for the Nationals in 2020, giving up an earned run on seven hits and five walks over 7.1 frames.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ben Braymer: Sent to Triple-A
Braymer was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old performed well in his first taste of big-league action last season with one earned run allowed over 7.1 innings, but he'll open 2021 in the minors. Braymer could still be a factor for the Nationals this season.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ben Braymer: Impressive in first MLB start
Braymer (1-0) allowed one hit and three walks over five scoreless innings in a win over the Marlins in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader. He struck out four.
Braymer totaled just 2.1 innings in his first two big-league appearances, but the Nationals turned him loose for 86 pitches Sunday, and the lefty went deep enough into the game to earn his first career win. An 18th-round pick in 2016, Braymer does not have overpowering stuff and did not generate much hype during his rise through the minor-league ranks. However, this performance may earn him another start next weekend with the Nationals firmly out of the playoff picture and their back-end regulars (namely Anibal Sanchez and Austin Voth) struggling mightily....

Nationals' Ben Braymer: Starting Sunday's nightcap
Braymer will start Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old will make a spot start to close out Sunday's twin bill, as Max Scherzer takes the mound in Game 1. Braymer mostly worked as a starter in the minors but covered only seven outs across his two outings this season, so he'll likely be serving as the first leg of a bullpen game.... See More ...

Nationals' Ben Braymer: Could make spot start Sunday
Braymer could serve as a starter or primary pitcher Sunday in one game of the Nationals' doubleheader with the Marlins, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Washington is expected to have one of its regular rotation members start one half of the twin bill, while manager Dave Martinez intends to treat the other contest as more of a bullpen game. Braymer hasn't recorded more than four outs in either of his two relief appearances with Washington this season, but Dougherty notes that he's currently stretched out to handle about 50-to-60 pitches. If a bullpen game is in fact on tap for Sunday's doubleheader, Braymer would rank as the better candidates to absorb the most innings for the Nationals.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ben Braymer: Called up by Nationals
Braymer was recalled by the Nationals on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Braymer will give the Nationals another option against lefties with Sean Doolittle (oblique) landing on the injured list in a corresponding move. He's unlikely to throw many high-leverage innings, however, as he's made just one career MLB appearance.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ben Braymer: Sent to alternate training site
Braymer was optioned to the alternate training site Saturday.
Braymer was recalled from the alternate site at the start of the week and allowed one run on four hits with one strikeout and one walk over 1.1 innings during his lone appearance. Brock Holt was added to the active roster in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ben Braymer: Recalled from satellite camp
Braymer was recalled from the Nationals' alternate training site Monday.
The southpaw takes the place of Seth Romero, who broke his non-pitching (right) hand Saturday. Look for Braymer to work primarily in low-leverage situations.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ben Braymer: Optioned to Triple-A Fresno
Braymer was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Saturday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
Braymer was added to the 40-man roster in November to protect him from the Rule 5 draft, but he'll need more time in the minors prior to claiming a spot on the big-league roster. The 25-year-old made three appearances (one start) during spring training, posting a 9.00 ERA and 4:1 K:BB over six innings. The southpaw will need to demonstrate more production against higher-level talent prior to making his first appearance in the majors.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Ben Braymer: Protected from Rule 5 draft
Braymer was added to the Nationals' 40-man roster Wednesday.
After recording a 2.51 ERA with a 0.97 WHIP over 79 innings with Double-A Harrisburg during the first half of last season, Braymer was promoted to Triple-A Fresno. He was less effective at the Triple-A level, as he amassed a 7.20 ERA with a 1.93 WHIP over 60 innings. The 25-year-old was added to the 40-man roster in order to protect him from the Rule 5 draft, and it's likely that he will need to develop more before making his major-league debut.... See More ...
