Cubs' D.J. Snelten: Dealing with elbow injury
Snelten arrived at spring training with an elbow injury and has been sent home by the Cubs, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Snelten signed with the Cubs as a non-roster invitee earlier in the month, but he'll be shut down for spring training due to his elbow issue. He's scheduled to begin a strengthening program in six weeks but doesn't yet have a timetable to return to baseball activities. The southpaw could compete for a major-league roster spot at some point in 2021 once he returns to full health.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' D.J. Snelten: Latches on with Cubs
Snelten signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs on Friday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
The 28-year-old spent spring training with the Rays last year and ended up at the alternate training site all season. Snelten hasn't seen game action since 2018 when he made his big-league debut with the Giants and surrendered five earned runs over 4.1 frames in four appearances.... See More ... See Less
Rays' D.J. Snelten: Present in 60-man pool
Snelton was named to the Rays' 60-man roster pool Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Rays' D.J. Snelten: Bound for minors camp
The Rays reassigned Snelten to their minor-league camp Thursday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.
Snelten joined the Rays as a non-roster invitee at spring training after spending the previous season in the independent ranks. Though he did make four appearances at the big-league level with the Giants in 2018, Snelten's prior experience won't be enough for him to break camp with the big club. He'll likely need to prove his worth at Triple-A Durham before the Rays weigh whether to add him to the 40-man roster and call him up to the majors at some point down the road.... See More ...

Rays' D.J. Snelten: Invited to Rays' camp
Snelten signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Monday as a non-roster invitee, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Snelten was let go by the Orioles in March and was unable to find a home during the 2019 season, but he'll get the chance to work with the Rays' major-league coaches during spring training. Snelten carries a 3.64 ERA with a 1.37 WHIP at the Triple-A level over his past three seasons, but he'll need to prove himself again in order to return to the majors after he had a disappointing big-league debut with the Giants in 2018....

D.J. Snelten: Cut loose by Baltimore
The Orioles released Snelten on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Snelten was a member of the Orioles' 40-man roster for a two-week stretch last season but never made any appearances for the big-league club before being outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk. The lefty didn't impress during his time in the International League with a 5.52 ERA and 1.96 WHIP in 29.1 innings, which likely influenced the team's decision to cut ties.... See More ... See Less

Orioles' D.J. Snelten: Designated for assignment
Snelten was designated for assignment by Baltimore on Friday.
Snelten was recently claimed off waivers by the Orioles but didn't do much to impress at the Triple-A level, allowing five earned runs off nine hits in just three innings of relief with Norfolk. He will be exposed to waivers for the second time this season, though it's unlikely that he will make an impact in the majors with another organization any time soon.... See More ... See Less

Giants' D.J. Snelten: Recalled from minors
Snelten was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The Giants needed a fresh bullpen arm for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers after Game 1 starter Chris Stratton lasted just 1.1 innings, so Snelten will join the big club for the first time in his career. The 25-year-old owns a 4.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP across nine innings with the River Cats this season. He likely won't stick with the Giants for long.... See More ... See Less
Giants' D.J. Snelten: Returning to Triple-A Sacramento
Snelten was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Snelten was efficient during his brief usage this spring. He pitched 5.1 innings over six games and allowed only one run on six hits and a walk. Snelten made his way up to Sacramento last season and threw to the tune of a 2.42 ERA and 1.08 WHIP over 36 games (52 innings). If need be, the 25-year-old could be an option for the big club's bullpen if he puts together a similar performance at the Triple-A level this season.... See More ... See Less
