Top Heath Hembree News

  • Mariners' Heath Hembree: Sent to minors camp

    The Mariners reassigned Hembree to minor-league camp Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Hembree threw a perfect inning during his lone appearance of the spring, but his chances to make the team were always slim. The 35-year-old righty will head to Triple-A Tacoma to provide the Mariners with organizational depth in the bullpen.

  • Mariners' Heath Hembree: Signs minors deal with M's

    Hembree signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Friday.

    Hembree turned in 1.1 scoreless frames during his lone major-league appearance last season, and he gave up three runs in 13 innings between the Tigers' and Rays' Triple-A affiliates. The 35-year-old righty will report to Triple-A Tacoma and offer the Mariners organizational bullpen depth.

  • Heath Hembree: Released by Detroit

    Hembree (forearm) was released by the Tigers on Sunday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    The right-hander was cut loose by the Red Sox in late April and quickly latched on with the Tigers via a minor-league deal, but he made just six appearances before going down with a forearm injury. Hembree was activated from the injured list by Triple-A Toledo on Friday but will now depart the organization.

  • Tigers' Heath Hembree: Lands with Detroit

    Hembree signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Monday.

    After electing to become a free agent last week when Tampa Bay moved him off its 40-man roster, Hembree has quickly caught on with a new organization. Though Hembree is initially expected to report to Triple-A Toledo, he should have a clearer path to capturing a more permanent spot in Detroit's big-league bullpen than he did with the American League East-leading Rays, who had several promising relief arms in the majors and higher levels of the minors. Hembree had posted a 1.29 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in seven innings with Triple-A Durham this season and tossed 1.1 scoreless innings in his lone relief appearance with the Rays prior to being designated for assignment.

  • Rays' Heath Hembree: Removed from 40-man roster

    The Rays designated Hembree for assignment Wednesday, Kristie Ackert of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The veteran righty threw 1.1 scoreless innings with a pair of strikeouts in his only appearance with the Rays. Hembree doesn't figure to attract much interest on waivers, as he hasn't posted a sub-five ERA since 2019 in Boston.

  • Rays' Heath Hembree: Joining big-league bullpen

    The Rays selected Hembree's contract from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Hembree gets a shot with the big club after allowing one run over seven relief innings at Durham. The 34-year-old struggled mightily at the big-league level in 2022, holding a 7.36 ERA across 26 appearances between the Dodgers and Pirates.

  • Rays' Heath Hembree: Headed to minors

    Tampa Bay reassigned Hembree to the minors Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Hembree made 10 scoreless appearances in the Grapefruit League this spring, but he was always on the outside looking in for a spot in Tampa Bay's talent-filled bullpen. The 34-year-old struggled to a 7.36 ERA in 22 major-league innings last season between the Pirates and Dodgers.

  • Rays' Heath Hembree: Reaches MiLB deal with Tampa Bay

    Hembree agreed Wednesday with the Rays on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to MLB spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The journeyman reliever has seen big-league action in each of the past 10 seasons, but even though he'll get a chance to compete for a spot in the Tampa Bay bullpen in spring training, he'll likely face an uphill battle to break camp with the big club. Hembree walked a career-high 15.9 percent of the batters he faced over his 22 big-league innings between the Dodgers and Pirates in 2022, and he was hit hard when he wasn't issuing free passes, giving up six home runs.

    Hembree elected free agency Friday after he cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City by the Dodgers, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    The veteran right-hander was designated for assignment by Los Angeles earlier this week, and he'll return to the open market rather than reporting to the minors. Hembree has a 7.36 ERA in 26 outings between the Pirates and Dodgers this season.

  • Dodgers' Heath Hembree: Nabs win in Dodgers debut

    Hembree (3-0) earned the win over the Mets on Tuesday. He allowed two hits and struck out one batter in one scoreless inning.

    Hembree was called in from the bullpen in the sixth inning on the same day that his contract was selected from Triple-A Oklahoma City. The veteran reliever allowed a pair of singles but kept the game tied, and he was rewarded with the win as a result of Los Angeles scoring the go-ahead run in the following frame. Hembree will look for better results with the Dodgers after he posted a 7.16 ERA and 1.90 WHIP over 20 appearances as a Pirate earlier in the campaign.

  • Dodgers' Heath Hembree: Summoned to big leagues

    The Dodgers selected Hembree's contract from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

    Hembree will join the big-league bullpen after he provided a 3.86 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 14:2 K:BB in 9.1 innings with Oklahoma City upon joining the organization earlier this month on a minor-league deal. Though he's collected 11 saves and 57 holds across parts of 10 seasons in the majors, Hembree is expected to be deployed mostly in low-leverage spots while he's up with the Dodgers.

  • Dodgers' Heath Hembree: Lands in Dodgers oganization

    Hembree has produced a 5.14 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 10:1 K:BB over seven innings across seven appearances for Triple-A Oklahoma City since signing a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on June 30.

    After getting cut loose by Pittsburgh on June 27, Hembree found a new organization soon thereafter, but the Dodgers had him spend about a month building up at extended spring training in Arizona before assigning him to Triple-A. Hembree has looked good in his initial appearances for Oklahoma City, but his lack of a 40-man roster spot could be an obstacle in him potentially making his way to the big-league roster before season's end.

  • Heath Hembree: Cuts ties with Pittsburgh

    The Pirates released Hembree on Sunday.

    After clearing waivers when he was designated for assignment Wednesday, Hembree likely wasn't keen on reporting to Triple-A Indianapolis, so the Pirates opted to part ways with the veteran reliever. The 33-year-old may still have to settle for a minor-league deal if he wants to find work in another organization after he turned in a 7.16 ERA and 1.90 WHIP across 16.1 innings out of the Pittsburgh bullpen prior to being removed from the 40-man roster.

  • Pirates' Heath Hembree: Designated for assignment

    Hembree was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Wednesday.

    Hembree returned from the injured list last week and gave up a run on two hits and five walks while striking out two in three innings over three relief appearances since returning to the field. The right-hander will lose his place on the 40-man roster after Jerad Eickhoff's contract was selected by Pittsburgh.
