Top Robert Dugger News

  • Robert Dugger: Headed to KBO

    Dugger signed a one-year, $900,000 contract with the SSG Landers of the KBO on Thursday, Dan Kurtz of MyKBO.net reports.

    Dugger pitched in the Rangers' organization throughout the 2023 campaign and managed a 4.31 ERA and 1.43 WHIP across 146.1 innings. His experience in the major leagues has predominantly come as a reliever in recent years, so it's unclear how he'll be used by the Landers.

  • Rangers' Robert Dugger: Gets minors deal from Rangers

    Dugger signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Wednesday.

    Dugger has compiled 86.2 innings between four different teams at the major-league level since 2019, posting an ugly 7.17 ERA over that stretch. The 27-year-old will probably join the rotation at Triple-A Round Rock.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Booted from 40-man

    Dugger (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day injured list and designated for assignment Tuesday.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Nearing rehab assignment

    Dugger (shoulder) could begin a rehab assignment Sunday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Dugger began a throwing program in late August and will have a chance to return to game action in the minors just under two weeks later. The right-hander has been on the injured list since Aug. 8 due to right shoulder pain, so it seems likely that he'll require multiple rehab appearances prior to rejoining the Reds.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Starts up throwing program

    Dugger (shoulder) was spotted playing catch on the field Monday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Dugger will likely increase the distance of his flat-ground throwing in the days to come before advancing to bullpen sessions and, eventually, facing hitters. The 27-year-old righty has been on the shelf since Aug. 8 with shoulder pain and may not have enough time left in the season to build up for a starting role.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Goes on IL

    The Reds placed Dugger on the 15-day injured list Monday with right shoulder pain.

    Dugger joined the Cincinnati rotation on Friday and allowing five runs on four hits over four innings in a loss to Milwaukee, and he appears to have picked up the shoulder injury in the process. His move to the IL is unfortunate timing, as Dugger appeared primed to receive multiple turns through the rotation after Hunter Greene (shoulder) was placed on the IL on Friday and after the Reds moved Luis Castillo to the Mariners ahead of last week's trade deadline.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Takes loss Friday

    Dugger (0-1) allowed five runs on four hits and four walks with two strikeouts in four innings Friday, taking the loss versus the Brewers.

    Dugger's first start of the year was less than impressive, as he threw only 39 of 73 pitches for strikes. He gave up all five runs in the first two innings, allowing a two-run home run to Rowdy Tellez and a three-run blast to Tyrone Taylor. Dugger has a 6.19 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 19:7 K:BB in 16 innings across four appearances (one start). With the Reds in full-on rebuild mode, the right-hander should have a chance to showcase himself as a starter over the next two months. Assuming he gets another turn in the rotation, it would likely be a road start versus the Mets next week.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Contract selected prior to start

    Dugger's contract was selected by the Reds ahead of Friday's start against the Brewers.

    Dugger's first three major-league appearances of the season came as a reliever, but he's worked mainly as a starter in the minors and has posted a 4.30 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 58.2 innings over 15 appearances (12 starts). The right-hander will likely be considered for a spot in the Reds' rotation after the team traded Luis Castillo and Tyler Mahle.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Starting Friday

    The Reds will select Dugger's contract from Triple-A Louisville and have him start Friday's game against the Brewers, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The 27-year-old is already with the team on the taxi squad and will officially join the 26-man roster ahead of Friday's series opener. Duggar has a 4.50 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 17:3 K:BB across 12 innings this season, and he's been designated for assignment after each of his three appearances in the majors this year. He covered 3.2 scoreless frames his last time out and could be in the mix for a rotation spot after Luis Castillo and Tyler Mahle we're shipped out at the trade deadline.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Dugger accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Dugger had the choice of electing free agency after going unclaimed off waivers, but he may have decided that sticking in the Reds organization was his best option as he looks to make his way back to the big leagues. He was added to the 40-man roster ahead of the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Pirates and struck out five over 3.2 scoreless innings, only to get designated for assignment a day later.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: DFA'd Friday

    Dugger was designated for assignment by the Reds on Friday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Dugger was DFA'd for a second time by the Reds on Friday after he had his contract selected ahead of the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Pirates. He tossed 3.2 scoreless innings while allowing two hits and two walks with five strikeouts in that contest. He will now likely return to Triple-A Louisville after he passes through waivers.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Contract selected by Cincy

    Dugger had his contract selected by the Reds ahead of Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Dugger was designated for assignment by the Reds in mid-May but stuck around the organization after clearing waivers, and he'll now receive another chance in the majors. The 27-year-old could serve as the bulk pitcher for Thursday's nightcap since starter Jeff Hoffman hasn't completed two innings or more since late May. Dugger has given up six runs with a 12:1 K:BB over 8.1 innings between his single appearances with Cincinnati and Tampa Bay this year.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Clears waivers

    Dugger cleared waivers Monday and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Dugger was designated for assignment Saturday after allowing six runs in 8.1 innings of relief. He has the right to refuse his outright assignment and elect free agency, though it's not yet clear whether he'll exercise that right.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Designated for assignment

    Dugger was designated for assignment by the Reds on Saturday.

    Dugger's contract was selected by Cincinnati on Thursday, but he didn't make any appearances during his stint with the major-league club. If he clears waivers, the right-hander will likely report to Triple-A Louisville.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Back in big leagues

    Dugger's contract was selected by the Reds on Thursday.

    Dugger was designated for assignment Sunday but is back in the big leagues less than a week later with Lucas Sims (back) heading to the injured list. Dugger owns a career 7.29 ERA at the major-league level has allowed six runs in 8.1 innings of relief this season, though his 12:1 K:BB gives reason for at least a bit of optimism.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Stays in Cincinnati organization

    The Reds outrighted Dugger to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    The 26-year-old righty will remain in the organization after none of MLB's other 29 teams put in a waiver claim for him when was designated for assignment Sunday. The Reds removed Dugger from the 40-man roster one day after he made his Cincinnati debut in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Pirates. He started that contest and gave up three earned runs over three innings while striking out five.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: DFA'd by Cincinnati

    Dugger was designated for assignment by the Reds on Sunday.

    Dugger was claimed off waivers by the Reds on Wednesday and pitched out of the bullpen during Saturday's doubleheader, and he gave up three runs on five hits with five strikeouts and a walk over three innings. The 26-year-old could be headed to Triple-A Louisville if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Available out of bullpen

    Dugger should be available to serve as a bulk reliever behind opener Dauri Moreta in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Dugger was initially expected to start Saturday's nightcap before the Reds announced that Moreta would serve as the opener. Although Dugger won't begin the game on the mound, he should still be available to provide length out of the bullpen after Moreta exits.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Status for Game 2 in flux

    Dugger is no longer listed as the projected starter for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Pirates, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    The Reds haven't given any indication that Dugger is hurt, but the team now lists the projected starter as TBD for Saturday's nightcap. As long as the right-hander isn't dealing with an injury, it's possible that he'll be available out of the bullpen for the second game of the twin bill.

  • Reds' Robert Dugger: Starting Game 2 of twin bill

    Dugger is scheduled to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Pirates, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Dugger will be making his Reds debut in a starting role after Cincinnati claimed him off waivers from the Rays earlier this week. In his lone appearance with the Rays on May 1, Dugger worked 5.1 innings out of the bullpen, so he should be sufficiently stretched out for a starting role Saturday. Assuming Luis Castillo (shoulder) returns from the injured list during the upcoming week, Dugger will likely be moved to the bullpen following his start against the Pirates.
