Jordan Yamamoto: Hanging up cleats
Yamamoto announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he has decided to retire from professional baseball.
Yamamoto's decision comes just one week after the Dodgers reassigned him to minor-league camp after he was unable to claim a spot on the team's Opening Day roster. The 26-year-old right-hander made 21 appearances (19 starts) in the majors from 2019 through 2021, logging a 6.05 ERA and 1.41 WHIP across 96.2 career innings between the Marlins and Mets. Yamamoto struggled mightily in 2022 in stops with three of the Mets' minor-league affiliates, and rather than facing the likelihood of another year on the farm in the Dodgers organization, he's elected to close the door on his playing career....

Dodgers' Jordan Yamamoto: Lands deal with Dodgers
Yamamoto signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Tuesday.
It's not clear whether Yamamoto has been given an invitation to major-league spring training. The 26-year-old spent all of 2022 in the minor leagues with the Mets, with his most extensive action coming at Double-A Binghamton where he posted a 4.55 ERA over 31.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jordan Yamamoto: Clears waivers
Yamamoto cleared waivers Monday and was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Mets' Jordan Yamamoto: Designated for assignment
The Mets designated Yamamoto for assignment Tuesday.
Yamamoto failed to land a spot on the Mets' Opening Day roster, and he'll now lose his spot on the 40-man roster ahead of the regular season.

Mets' Jordan Yamamoto: Sent back to minor-league camp
Yamamoto was re-assigned to the Mets' minor-league camp Friday, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander wasn't expected to break camp on the big-league roster anyway, but the quick exile is likely due to the shortened spring training schedule and a lack of innings for the Mets' established arms. "We need to get him stretched out," manager Buck Showalter said regarding Yamamoto's demotion. The 25-year-old should begin the year at Triple-A Syracuse and could see action in the majors later this summer if injuries force the Mets to dip into their rotation depth.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jordan Yamamoto: Activated and optioned
Yamamoto (shoulder) was activated off the 60-day injured list Friday and optioned to Triple-A Syracuse, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Yamamoto (shoulder) had his rehab assignment transferred to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Mets' Jordan Yamamoto: Rehab shifts to Low-A
Yamamoto (shoulder) made his most recent rehab start at Low-A St. Lucie on Thursday, working four innings while striking out five and giving up a run on three hits and no walks.
Now four starts into his rehab assignment, Yamamoto has made his last three turns with St. Lucie after kicking off his minor-league stint in the rookie-level Florida Complex League. He's continuing to build back up for a starting role in case the Mets require an extra arm for the rotation later in September, but Yamamoto is more likely to slot into the bullpen if the big club suffers no further attrition to its pitching staff in the next week or two....

Mets' Jordan Yamamoto: Begins rehab assignment
Yamamoto (shoulder) began a rehab assignment with the Mets' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Yamamoto has been on the injured list since late May due to a sore right shoulder, but he resumed mound work in mid-July. The righty tossed a scoreless inning during his first rehab appearance and will likely require several appearances in the minors before he's ready to rejoin the major-league club. However, Yamamoto should be available as a starting option for the Mets if they need one in September.... See More ... See Less

Yamamoto (shoulder) has been throwing bullpens in Florida and could move toward a rehab assignment soon, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Mets' Jordan Yamamoto: Return not imminent
Mets acting general manager Zack Scott said Monday that Yamamoto (shoulder) remains "weeks away" from a return, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Yamamoto isn't believed to have initiated a throwing program since he was placed on the injured list May 25 with right shoulder soreness, so he'll realistically need at least a month to build up before returning. Scott noted that the Mets remain hopeful Yamamoto will make it back from the IL later this season, but the 25-year-old likely won't have a spot in the big-league rotation waiting for him once he gets a clean bill of health....

The Mets acquired outfielder Billy McKinney from the Brewers in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less

Yamamoto was removed from Sunday's start against the Marlins with right shoulder soreness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The right-hander was pulled due to the shoulder issue after surrendering five runs (four earned) on six hits across four innings.
