Dodgers' J.P. Feyereisen: Expected back for spring
Feyereisen (shoulder) is expected to be a "full go" for spring training, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Feyereisen was forced to miss all of last season after undergoing a shoulder procedure in December 2022. He threw a bullpen session Saturday as the latest step in his rehab program and appears set to compete for a spot in the Dodgers' bullpen in the spring. The 30-year-old reliever boasts a 2.31 ERA and 1.00 WHIP through 89.2 innings in his MLB career.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' J.P. Feyereisen: Agrees to terms
Feyereisen (shoulder) agreed to a one-year, $770,000 deal with the Dodgers on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
He was traded to the Dodgers from the Rays in December of 2022 after Tampa Bay initially designated him for assignment, and he missed the entire 2023 season recovering from shoulder surgery, so it's not surprising to see Feyereisen get one of the lowest deals among arbitration-eligible players. The 30-year-old reliever did not give up an earned run in 24.1 innings for the Rays in 2022. He has four career saves in 83 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' J.P. Feyereisen: Placed on 60-day IL
Feyereisen was placed on the 60-day injured list by the Dodgers on Thursday as he recovers from right rotator cuff and labrum surgery.
The move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster. Feyereisen was designated for assignment by the Rays in December after it was discovered that he needed surgery, and he was subsequently traded to the Dodgers. He'll be sidelined at least until the second half of the 2023 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' J.P. Feyereisen: Dealt to Dodgers
The Dodgers acquired Feyereisen (shoulder) from the Rays on Wednesday in exchange for a minor-league reliever Jeff Belge, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Tampa Bay recently designated Feyereisen for assignment after the team announced its signing of free-agent pitcher Zach Eflin, but the 29-year-old right-hander will reclaim a 40-man roster spot as he joins his new organization. However, because Feyereisen underwent rotator cuff and labrum cleanup surgery earlier this month and isn't expected to start throwing for another four months, he'll likely be moved to the 60-day injured list before Opening Day with the expectation that he won't be ready to make his Dodgers debut until late August at the earliest. When healthy, the right-hander has been an effective reliever at the MLB level, posting a 2.31 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 11.8 K-BB% across 89.2 career innings.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Designated for assignment
Feyereisen (shoulder) was designated for assignment by the Rays on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
It was announced last week that Feyereisen had surgery on his pitching shoulder and would be sidelined for a large chunk of the 2023 season. Nevertheless, the move comes as a bit of a surprise, as the 29-year-old didn't allow a single earned run in 22 appearances in 2022 and is under team control through 2026. There figures to be interest in him on waivers.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Requires shoulder surgery
Feyereisen underwent surgery on his right shoulder Wednesday to clean up his rotator cuff and labrum, and he's expected to be sidelined from throwing for four months, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Feyereisen was sidelined the final four months of last season due to a pinched nerve in his shoulder, and he'll now miss the start of the 2023 campaign while rehabbing from the surgery. The right-hander delivered 24.1 scoreless frames prior to the injury in 2022 and figures to fill a high-leverage role once healthy, but he's unlikely to be built up enough to pitch in the majors until at least June....

Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Likely done for 2022
Manager Kevin Cash said Friday that Feyereisen recently felt additional discomfort in his shoulder and is "highly unlikely" to return this season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The 29-year-old has been sidelined with a pinched nerve in his shoulder since early June, and it appears he won't return to the mound this season. Feyereisen didn't allow an earned run over 24.1 innings before landing on the shelf, and it's unclear if he's expected to be ready for the start of spring training next year.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Close to facing hitters
Feyereisen (shoulder) will throw another bullpen session this week prior to heading to Triple-A Durham to throw live batting practice, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Feyereisen felt good after throwing a bullpen session Monday, so he's been cleared to throw another before progressing to facing hitters. The right-hander will likely require a rehab assignment at some point, so it seems unlikely that he'll be in the mix to rejoin the Rays until at least September.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Set for another bullpen
Feyereisen (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Monday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Feyereisen threw a bullpen session Friday and will continue ramping up his activity. He has been sidelined since June 3 and will likely require at least a brief rehab assignment before being activated. Prior to going down, Feyereisen had tallied a save and seven holds, so he will likely fit back into high-leverage situations prior to the close of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Throws bullpen Friday
Feyereisen (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Feyereisen has been on the injured list with a shoulder issue since early June but said after Friday's throwing session that his shoulder feels good. The right-hander will presumably require a rehab assignment at some point and hopes to rejoin the Rays around mid-September.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Slated for MRI
Feyereisen (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Feyereisen was cleared to resume throwing recently but experienced discomfort afterward. A better idea of his status should come into focus following his examination Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Transferred to 60-day IL
Feyereisen (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday.
Feyereisen was placed on the 15-day injured list in early June, and he'll be unavailable until at least the first week of August following Monday's transaction. The right-hander has been building arm strength recently, but the bone bruise in his shoulder hasn't yet fully healed. A better idea of his return timetable should come into focus once he resumes a throwing program.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Building arm strength
Feyereisen (shoulder) has begun one-armed plyo ball exercises, Ethan Diamandas of MLB.com reports.

Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Feeling better, not throwing
Feyereisen (shoulder) is feeling better but is still only receiving treatment, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Feyereisen has been sidelined since June 3 with a bone bruise in his shoulder. Manager Kevin Cash noted Monday that the issue is still causing enough soreness that Feyereisen has yet to begin throwing in any capacity. A return early in July remains possible, though Feyereisen will likely have to begin ramping up in short order to make a return prior to the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: MRI reveals bone bruise
Feyereisen (shoulder) underwent an MRI on Saturday that revealed a bone bruise, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The right-hander was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday, but it's a positive sign that he's dealing with a bone bruise rather than an issue related to the muscles or ligaments in his shoulder. A timetable for Feyereisen's return isn't yet clear, but the Rays will likely receive an additional late-inning option soon since Andrew Kittredge (back) is expected to be reinstated from the 15-day IL in the coming days....

Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Placed on 15-day IL
Feyereisen was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday with a right shoulder impingement.
Feyereisen pitched one-third of an inning Thursday, but appears to have come up lame after the appearance. He'll now be away from the team for multiple weeks while nursing his throwing shoulder, potentially looking at an extended absence. Calvin Faucher was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Friday to take his spot in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Picks up first save
Feyereisen retired the side in order and earned the save in a 4-2 win Sunday over the Yankees.
Feyereisen needed just five pitches to retire the bottom three batters in the Yankees lineup. It was the first time he was allowed to close out a game all season. The 29-year-old has been stellar, allowing no earned runs and only nine baserunners while striking out 25 in 22 innings. He's primarily appeared in the seventh and eighth innings, but with his dominance and the Rays' closer committee, it's possible he could see more opportunities to earn saves.... See More ... See Less
Rays' J.P. Feyereisen: Picks up another victory
Feyereisen (4-0) struck out two and did not allow a baserunner in a scoreless seventh inning to earn the win Saturday against the Yankees.
Feyereisen entered with the game tied and generated two swinging strikeouts. He has not allowed an earned run across 22 innings and has a 25:4 K:BB on the season. Despite his dominance, Feyereisen has not earned a save this season and doesn't appear to be in the mix for the closer role even with Andrew Kittredge (back) sidelined.... See More ... See Less
