  • Yankees' Demarcus Evans: Reassigned to MiLB camp

    Evans was reassigned Tuesday to minor-league camp by the Yankees.

    Evans signed a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training over the winter, but he'll at least begin the 2023 season in the minors. The right-hander has shown electric stuff at times, but his inability to command his arsenal has limited his chances at the highest level.

  • Yankees' Demarcus Evans: Gets deal from Yankees

    Evans signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Friday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training.

    Evans looked like a potential closer not that long ago with the Rangers, but he's always had control issues and his velocity really dipped in 2022. He can still miss bats, though, making him a worthy gamble on a minor-league pact.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Evans was assigned outright to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

    Evans was removed from the Rangers' 40-man roster last weekend, and none of MLB's other 29 teams were willing to take a flier on him. The right-hander impressed in a small cup of coffee with the big club at the tail end of the 2020, but he was unable to build on that success in 2021, and things have fallen apart for him at the Triple-A level this season (7.50 ERA, 1.75 WHIP, 14 walks in 12 innings).

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Dropped from 40-man roster

    The Rangers designated Evans for assignment Sunday.

    The transaction reopens a spot on the 40-man roster for right-hander Glenn Otto (illness), who was reinstated from the COVID-19-related injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Nationals. Evans has pitched exclusively for Triple-A Round Rock this season, logging a 7.50 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 17:14 K:BB across 12 innings out of the bullpen.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Misses out on Opening Day roster

    The Rangers optioned Evans to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

    Evans was one of two Texas pitchers optioned to minor-league camp Wednesday, joining Yerry Rodriguez. Though he's performed well during his time at the Double- and Triple-A levels, Evans hasn't been able to translate his swing-and-miss stuff to success in the majors. Over 29 career MLB appearances spanning 30.1 innings, Evans owns a 5.13 ERA (5.28 xFIP).

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Sent down by Rangers

    Evans was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

    Evans spent just over a month in the Rangers' bullpen, but he struggled recently by giving up three runs in 2.2 innings across three appearances since Sept. 1. He'll attempt to sort things out in Round Rock after right-hander Dane Dunning (undisclosed) was reinstated from the COVID-19 IL.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Back with big club

    The Rangers recalled Evans from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of Wednesday's game against the Angels.

    Evans will rejoin the Rangers as a replacement on the active roster for starting pitcher Dane Dunning, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with an ankle impingement. Though he's posted some gaudy strikeout rates throughout his minor-league career, Evans hasn't shown enough control to emerge as a trusted late-inning arm at the MLB level. Through 13 appearances with Texas this season, Evans has submitted a 5.65 ERA and 1.53 WHIP while walking eight batters over 14.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Sent to Triple-A

    Evans was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

    Evans was in the majors the past couple weeks and pitched well in four outings with zero runs allowed on three hits with five strikeouts and one walk over five innings. The right-hander has a 8.68 ERA in his other nine big-league appearances this year, but he's likely to receive another chance with the Rangers down the stretch.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Back with big club

    Evans was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Monday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Evans will return to the majors after being sent down at the conclusion of Sunday's doubleheader. He's made 10 relief appearances in 2021 for the Rangers, posting a 7.15 ERA and 1.68 WHIP with a 16:8 K:BB across 11.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Heads back to Round Rock

    The Rangers optioned Evans to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday.

    Evans' latest stint with the Rangers lasted just one day, as he was designated as the team's 27th man for Sunday's doubleheader with the Rangers. He tossed two scoreless frames in the Rangers' 10-0 loss in Game 2, allowing no hits and a walk while striking out two.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Promotion official

    The Rangers officially called Evans up from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of Sunday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.

    Texas is designating Evans as its 27th man for the twin bill, so he'll presumably be sent back to Round Rock after the doubleheader concludes. In nine appearances out of the big-league bullpen this season, Evans has posted an 8.68 ERA and 1.93 WHIP across 9.1 innings.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Named Sunday's 27th man

    Evans will be recalled for Sunday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays, Chris Halicke of SI.com reports.

    The Rangers figure to need some additional bullpen arms to get through 14 innings Sunday, so Evans and his 8.68 ERA will join the club in Buffalo. The righty has logged three consecutive scoreless appearances for Triple-A Round Rock, so perhaps this success will translate to the big-league level if he gets called upon Sunday.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Rangers optioned Evans to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday.

    The righty gets demoted after yielding four runs on five hits in just two-thirds of an inning Tuesday, raising his ERA to 8.68. Evans has demonstrated his swing-and-miss stuff while fanning 14 batters in 9.1 innings with the Rangers, but his run prevention has been too poor to keep him on the big-league roster.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Takes first loss of 2021

    Evans (0-1) allowed one earned run on a hit and a walk across one inning, taking the loss to the Rockies on Wednesday.

    Evans inherited a runner on first base with no outs in the sixth inning. He proceeded to walk Dom Nunez before allowing a two-RBI double to Raimel Tapia to surrender the lead. The 24-year-old has just nine MLB innings in seven appearances under his belt. He has shown the ability to maintain high strikeout rates through his years in the minor leagues. He has a 3.60 ERA and seven punchouts in five innings this season.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Fans four in debut

    Evans walked one and struck out four over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 11-5 loss to the Angels.

    Evans was called up earlier in the day and made his season debut Tuesday. The 24-year-old bullpen prospect fared well his first time out, although the fastball velocity was down a few ticks to the 92-93 mph range coming off a latissimus injury. Evans has proven he can miss bats, having struck out 16 of 23 batters in the minors this season. The right-hander could emerge at the back end of the bullpen by the conclusion of the current season.

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Recalled to big leagues

    The Rangers recalled Evans to their active roster Tuesday.

    Evans will be available during Tuesday's game against the Angels. In five appearances with Triple-A Round Rock this season, the righty has pitched 7.2 innings and allowed two earned runs. He fills one of the roster spots opened by injuries to Kyle Gibson (groin) and Hunter Wood (elbow).

  • Rangers' Demarcus Evans: Activated, optioned

    Evans (lat) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to the Rangers' alternate training site Saturday.

    Evans suffered a lat injury during the offseason but was expected to be in the mix for some high-leverage opportunities once he was cleared to return. Although the right-hander is now healthy, he'll work at the team's alternate training site going forward. Evans made four relief appearances for Texas last year and posted a 2.25 ERA and 0.75 WHIP in four innings.
