Mets' Peyton Battenfield: Claimed by Mets
The Mets claimed Battenfield off waivers from the Guardians on Saturday and optioned him to Triple-A Syracuse.
Battenfield was sent to Triple-A in May after putting up a 5.19 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through 34.2 innings to start the season. He was DFA'd by Cleveland after putting up similar numbers in the minors, and he'll now serve as an organizational depth piece for New York.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Pushed off 40-man roster
Battenfield was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Thursday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.
Eric Haase has also been DFA'd as the Guardians clear out 40-man roster space following their waiver claims of Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez and Matt Moore. Battenfield, 26, carries a 5.19 ERA in 34.2 innings this season at the MLB level and a 5.66 ERA in 47.2 innings at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Activated from IL, optioned
Cleveland activated Battenfield (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Friday and optioned him to Triple-A Columbus.
Battenfield is recovered from right shoulder inflammation that sent him to the IL back in mid-May, but the Guardians will stash him at Columbus for now. The 25-year-old allowed seven earned runs and tallied only one strikeout over 7.1 innings in his latest rehab start this past Sunday at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Reaches seven innings in rehab
Battenfield (shoulder) made the fifth start of his rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Columbus, striking out one over 7.1 innings while allowing seven earned runs on seven hits and five walks.
Between stops at Columbus and Double-A Akron over the past month, Battenfield has steadily built up his innings and pitch counts, but the results haven't been especially impressive. He's covered 24.2 innings in total, giving up eight home runs over that stretch while pitching to a 5.47 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 14:11 K:BB. With his 30-day rehab window nearing its end, the Guardians will have to activate him, and he looks like a candidate to fill the vacant fifth spot in the Cleveland rotation after Aaron Civale was traded to Tampa Bay earlier this week. The Guardians have yet to announce a starter for Saturday's game against the White Sox, so Battenfield could end up taking the hill that day.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Works 5.1 innings in rehab start
Battenfield (shoulder) covered 5.1 innings in his rehab start Sunday with Triple-A Columbus, striking out two while allowing four earned runs on six hits and three walks.
The appearance with Columbus marked the fourth of Battenfield's rehab assignment, which began at Double-A Akron before he moved up to the Guardians' top affiliate last week. He's turned in an acceptable 4.15 ERA but a poor 13:10 K:BB in 17.1 innings through those four outings, but the Guardians could still view him as their preferred No. 5 starter over Xzavion Curry, who recently moved out of the bullpen to make a pair of three-inning spot starts. After stretching out to 86 pitches Sunday, Battenfield could be activated from the 60-day injured list to take the hill when the Guardians next require a fifth starter Friday versus the White Sox....

Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Reaches fifth inning in rehab start
Battenfield (shoulder) covered 4.1 innings in his rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Columbus, striking out six while allowing three earned runs on five hits and three walks.
The start was the third of Battenfield's rehab assignment and his first at Columbus after the previous two came with Double-A Akron. Though he's had issues with walks in two of his three rehab outings, Battenfield has reached the fifth inning in both of his last two starts, and he built up to 79 pitches Tuesday. With Shane Bieber (elbow) joining Cal Quantrill (shoulder) on the injured list coming out of the All-Star break, Battenfield could be an option to join the big club when Cleveland next requires a fifth starter, either Sunday versus the Phillies or early next week against the Royals....

Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Covers 4.2 innings in rehab start
Battenfield (shoulder) struck out two over 4.2 innings while allowing an earned run on three hits and no walks in his most recent rehab start July 9 for Double-A Akron.
Battenfield built up to 67 pitches (40 strikes) in the rehab outing, his second since he landed on the 15-day injured list May 19 with right shoulder inflammation. Because he was later transferred to the 60-day IL, Battenfield won't be eligible for activation until Tuesday, but the Guardians may want the right-hander to make one more rehab start before rejoining the big club. Once activated, Battenfield could step into the rotation spot vacated by Shane Bieber (elbow), who was placed on the 15-day IL on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Covers three innings in rehab start
Battenfield (shoulder) struck out three over three scoreless innings in his rehab start Tuesday with Double-A Akron. He scattered one hit and four walks in the 58-pitch outing.
Battenfield's appearance with Akron was his first at any level since the Guardians placed him on the injured list May 19 with right shoulder inflammation. Because he was later transferred to the 60-day IL, Battenfield won't be eligible for activation until after the All-Star break, but Cleveland isn't expected to be in an immediate rush to activate him. Even with Triston McKenzie (elbow) and Cal Quantrill (shoulder) on the injured list, the Guardians still have a trio of impressive rookies (Tanner Bibee, Gavin Williams and Logan Allen) on hand to fill out the back end of their rotation....

Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Rehab outing set
Battenfield (shoulder) will make a rehab appearance with Double-A Akron on Tuesday, Joe Noga of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Battenfield has been sidelined with shoulder inflammation since mid-May. He's scheduled to throw 65 pitches in his rehab outing, which makes it possible that he returns from the injured list on July 21 -- the date he's first eligible. It's unlikely that Battenfield sticks in the majors upon his activation, though he could contribute to the big-league club in the closing months of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Shifted to 60-day IL
The Guardians moved Battenfield (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Battenfield landed on the 15-day injured list May 19 due to right shoulder inflammation, and his move to the 60-day IL will keep him out through the All-Star break. Michael Kelly was selected to Cleveland's big-league roster in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Goes on IL with shoulder injury
Battenfield was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday with right shoulder inflammation, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.
Battenfield struggled in his last outing Wednesday against the White Sox and now will be on the shelf for at least a couple weeks. He had been slated to start Monday, so the Guardians will have to find a substitute.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Remains winless
Battenfield (0-5) took the loss Wednesday versus the White Sox, allowing five runs on nine hits and a walk with two strikeouts over 4.1 innings.
Battenfield remains in search of his first major-league win, and he's not really even trending in the right direction. This was his second-shortest outing of the season, and it's the first time he's given up five earned runs, which included yielding three home runs. The 25-year-old right-hander is now at a 5.19 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 27:11 K:BB across 34.2 innings through seven appearances (six starts). Battenfield has done little to suggest he'll remain in the rotation once Aaron Civale (oblique), Triston McKenzie (shoulder) or Cody Morris (lat) are ready to return, though all of those pitchers are still over a week away. Battenfield is tentatively projected to get a rematch with the White Sox in Cleveland next week.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Falls to Tigers
Battenfield (0-4) took the loss Wednesday, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits over six innings in a 5-0 loss to the Tigers. He struck out four and did not issue a walk.
Battenfield allowed two runs in the first inning and another three in the third. The rookie right-hander would settle down, blanking Detroit over his final three frames, but he ultimately took his fourth defeat as Cleveland couldn't crack Eduardo Rodriguez in a shutout loss. It's been an up-and-down year so far for Battenfield. He now sports a 4.45 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 25:11 K:BB through 30.1 innings. Battenfield figures to line up for at least one more start while Triston McKenzie (shoulder) and Aaron Civale (oblique) remain sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Gets another start
Battenfield is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Tigers at Progressive Field.
After a brief stint in the bullpen, Battenfield took Zach Plesac's spot in the rotation last Friday against the Twins and turned in an impressive seven-inning outing in which he struck out seven and permitted just two hits and zero walks. As expected, Battenfield will be rewarded with another turn through the rotation, and he should have some security in a starting role while both Triston McKenzie (shoulder) and Aaron Civale (oblique) are likely sidelined until late May and while Plesac works to get back on track at Triple-A Columbus....

Guardians' Peyton Battenfield: Takes loss despite quality start
Battenfield (0-3) took the loss Friday, allowing two runs on two hits and zero walks over seven innings during a 2-0 loss to Minnesota. He struck out seven.
Battenfield moved back into the rotation Friday as Cleveland opted for him over Zach Plesac, who's posted a 7.59 ERA and 1.97 WHIP over his first 21.1 innings. Battenfield made the most of his opportunity and was perfect through 5.2 innings before surrendering a single to Christian Vazquez and a two-run home run to Max Kepler in the sixth. Those were the only baserunners and runs allowed by the right-hander, but that was enough to take the loss as Bailey Ober and the Twins' bullpen shut out the Guardians. Despite the loss, Battenfield may have done enough to earn another turn through the rotation.... See More ... See Less
