Mets' John Curtiss: Option picked up
Curtiss (elbow) had his $775,000 team option for 2023 exercised by the Mets on Thursday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The 28-year-old didn't pitch in 2022 while he recovered from Tommy John surgery, and the Mets will bring him back to potentially make his team debut next year. Curtiss underwent the procedure in September 2021, so he could be fully healthy for the start of spring training.... See More ... See Less
Mets' John Curtiss: Signs with Mets
The Mets signed Curtiss (elbow) to a one-year contract Wednesday and placed him on the 60-day injured list, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Curtiss will miss the entire 2022 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in September, but his contract with the Mets contains a team option for the 2023 campaign. He made 41 appearances (three starts) with the Marlins and Brewers last year prior to undergoing his procedure, and he recorded a 3.45 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 44.1 innings. The Mets will monitor his rehab over the months to come before deciding whether to exercise his option early next offseason.... See More ... See Less
John Curtiss: Non-tendered by Brewers
Curtiss (elbow) was non-tendered by the Brewers on Friday.
Curtis was acquired by Milwaukee at the trade deadline in July, but he pitched in only six games before suffering a UCL injury and undergoing Tommy John surgery. He's set to miss the entirety of 2022, so the team decided not to tender him a contract.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' John Curtiss: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
Curtiss underwent Tommy John surgery last week, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Curtiss was diagnosed with a torn UCL in mid-August, so it's no surprise to see him undergo the surgery. Recovery from the procedure is expected to keep him out until the start of the 2023 season.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' John Curtiss: Shuttled to 60-day IL
The Brewers transferred Curtiss (elbow) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday.
Curtiss was diagnosed with a torn UCL in in right elbow a few days ago and is set to miss the rest of the season, so the Brewers' decision to move him to the 60-day IL is merely a formality. The right-hander has yet to decide whether to undergo Tommy John surgery to address the injury, though the procedure would seem to be a likely outcome.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' John Curtiss: Out with torn UCL
Curtiss was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a torn UCL in his right elbow.
Curtiss exited Tuesday's contest with elbow discomfort and is now staring down an extended absence. The 28-year-old will likely miss the rest of the season and could require Tommy John surgery, which would also sideline him for most, if not all, of the 2022 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' John Curtiss: Leaves with elbow discomfort
Curtiss was removed from Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs with right elbow discomfort, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Curtiss recorded two outs and allowed a run on two hits while recording a strikeout before leaving the field with an athletic trainer. The right-hander attempted to remain in the contest but was ultimately pulled by manager Craig Counsell. He should be considered day-to-day until the specifics of the injury are known....

Brewers' John Curtiss: Dealt to Milwaukee
Curtiss was traded from the Marlins to the Brewers on Friday in exchange for Payton Henry, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
The 28-year-old righty reliever had been excellent for Miami this season, logging a 2.48 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 40 strikeouts in 40 innings. He should work in mid-leverage spots down the stretch for the Brewers.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' John Curtiss: Perfect as opener
Curtiss struck out two batters in a perfect inning as the opener in Sunday's win over the Padres.
Curtiss needed just 10 pitches to set down the top of San Diego's lineup in order. He lowered his season ERA to 2.56 with a 40:9 K:BB through 38.2 innings. The 28-year-old righty will move back to the bullpen but could be used as an opener again at some point soon with Trevor Rogers (back) on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' John Curtiss: Opening Sunday's game
Curtiss will serve as the Marlins' opening pitcher for Sunday's game against the Padres, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
After Trevor Rogers (back) was moved to the injured list Saturday, an already shorthanded Miami rotation became even further depleted, so the Marlins could treat the series finale as a bullpen day. Expect Curtiss to work one or two innings before giving way to another reliever.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' John Curtiss: Activated from IL
Curtiss (neck) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Fish Stripes reports.
He struck out two in one inning during his lone rehab appearance and will take the place of Pablo Lopez (rotator cuff strain). Curtiss should work in mid-leverage situations.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' John Curtiss: Starts up rehab assignment
Curtiss (neck) made a rehab appearance for High-A Beloit on Tuesday, striking out two over a scoreless inning.
Curtiss was placed on the 10-day injured list July 4 with a stiff neck, but the reliever looks like he'll be ready to go shortly after the All-Star break. After being acquired from the Rays in the offseason, Curtiss has been a key piece out of the Miami bullpen with a 2.67 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and a 34:8 K:BB in 33.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' John Curtiss: Dealing with neck stiffness
Curtiss was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with neck stiffness, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Curtiss last pitched one-third of an inning June 30 and has now landed on the injury list with the neck issue. Jordan Holloway was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' John Curtiss: Collects third win
Curtiss (3-1) allowed one hit in 1.1 scoreless innings to earn the win in Friday's 10-2 victory over the Cubs.
Curtis followed starter Cody Poteet, who lasted only 3.2 innings and failed to qualify for the win in his return from a knee injury. After a strong start to the year, Curtiss has allowed seven runs (five earned) in his last 11 innings. The right-hander has a 2.97 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 33:6 K:BB across 30.1 innings, mainly as a low-leverage reliever, although he's also taken two turns as an opener.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' John Curtiss: Opening Friday
Curtiss will start Friday's game against the Mets, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
The 28-year-old will serve as an opener for the second time this season to begin the weekend series. Curtiss has completed two innings on two occasions this season, and he's unlikely to pitch much deeper than that Friday. Jordan Holloway could be in the mix as a bulk option for Miami....

Marlins' John Curtiss: Handed loss Tuesday
Curtiss (2-1) took the loss Tuesday against the Brewers while allowing one run on two hits and striking out two over 1.2 innings.
Curtiss ended a 7.2 innings scoreless streak Tuesday after he allowed the Brewers to score and re-take the lead in the fifth off of a pair of extra-base hits from Keston Hiura and Luis Urias. The 28-year-old has still been very reliable overall this year with a 2.38 ERA and a 12:0 K:BB over 11.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' John Curtiss: Wins second consecutive game
Curtiss (2-0) struck out one and allowed one hit in one inning of work, earning the win in Wednesday's 6-5 victory over Atlanta.
The righty has settled in after allowing homers in his first two appearances of 2021, as he hasn't given up a run in his ensuing three outings -- lowering his ERA to 3.38 in the process. The two winning decisions -- coincidental products of his team taking the lead late in games -- likely are anomalies for Curtiss, although continued success in late-game situations may earn him more high-leverage innings and opportunities for holds, especially now that Anthony Bass has yielded the closer role to Yimi Garcia....

Marlins' John Curtiss: Earns win No. 1 on year
Curtiss (1-0) allowed one hit and struck out two over 1.2 scoreless innings as he picked up the win Tuesday against Atlanta.
Curtiss entered to begin the fifth after Pablo Lopez had reached his limit and pitched an easy 1-2-3 inning on just nine pitches. The 28-year-old Curtiss came out again to start the sixth and got another quick out before surrendering a single to Austin Riley. He finished his day strong, however, as he struck out Ronald Acuna on three pitches before being taken out of the game in favor of Ross Detwiler. Curtiss has thrown back-to-back scoreless outings after allowing a run in each of his first two appearances this year, and he's lowered his ERA to 4.15 over 4.1 innings for the season....

Marlins' John Curtiss: Sunday's game suspended
Curtiss didn't throw a pitch Sunday against the Mets before the game was suspended due to inclement weather, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The 28-year-old was serving as an opener Sunday for the Mets, but the teams were called off the field due to rain with one out in the top of the first inning. Curtiss should return to his bullpen role when the Marlins resume the schedule Monday in Atlanta.... See More ... See Less
