Orioles send two pitchers packing


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) The Orioles have released veteran Aaron Laffey and fellow left-hander Steve Garrison .

The 28-year-old Laffey showed some promise with Cleveland from 2007 to 2010, but never emerged as an effective starter. He bottomed out with the Mets and Blue Jays last season with a 7.11 ERA in five appearances.


Orioles give Aaron Laffey a minor-league deal


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2013) The Brewers signed pitcher Aaron Laffey to a minor-league deal Thursday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Brewers are the fourth club for Laffey, who was designated for assignment by the Mets and Blue Jays and opted out of a minor-league deal with the Dodgers.

Aaron Laffey released by Dodgers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2013) The Dodgers have released pitcher Aaron Laffey Tuesday.

Aaron Laffey not worth much attention


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2013) Given the Dodgers' injury issues in the rotation, it's not far fetched to assume that Aaron Laffey could find himself starting before long. The Dodgers have three starters on the disabled list and another, Ted Lilly, set for an MRI.

Laffey was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays, and he signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers Tuesday and will report to Triple-A Albuquerque. Laffey had a 7.11 ERA in 12 2/3 innings between the Mets and Blue Jays this season.

Laffey will have to work his way to the majors before being worth a look in Fantasy, and even then he will likely be little more than an NL-only option as a member of the rotation. 


Aaron Laffey gets minors deal from Dodgers


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Laffey, who made his third start of the season, surrendered two runs, two hits and walked five in 2 2/3 innings of work. He threw 55 pitches, 23 strikes and did not factor into the decision.

Laffey will be ready to make another start Thursday at home against Boston if Johnson is not ready. He has a 4.50 ERA in 10 career appearances (five starts) against the Red Sox.

by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2013) Blue Jays starter Aaron Laffey will start in Josh Johnson's spot Friday against the Yankees, MLB.com reports.

Josh Johnson is dealing with triceps soreness. The Blue Jays called the move precautionary, but Johnson's extensive injury history makes it tough to dismiss further concerns. Laffey has allowed eight runs on 16 hits over 10 innings.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2013) Mets starting pitcher Aaron Laffey made his second start of the season in the second game of a day-night doubleheader against the Rockies Tuesday.

Laffey turned in a decent outing but did not factor in the decision. He surrendered a run on a sacrifice fly in the opening frame and then allowed one more on a fielder's choice in the third. The left-hander was charged with two runs on two hits in four innings of work. He also walked three and struck out three on 77 pitches, 43 for strikes.

Laffey has a 4.82 ERA and a 1.93 WHIP. He is scheduled to take the hill at home against the Nationals Saturday afternoon on short rest. He allowed two runs in three innings of work last season against Washington.

Aaron Laffey fixes mechanical flaw


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2013) Mets starting pitcher Aaron Laffey said he's fixed a mechanical flaw heading into his second start during the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader at Colorado, according to The Star-Ledger.

"I needed to pretty much carry it down the hill a little farther," Laffey said of his delivery. "I was landing on my heel, kind of recoiling a little bit. I needed to just work on getting further down the hill and lengthening that stride a little bit so everything works together a little better."

Laffey struggled in his first start April 7 against the Marlins, but he bounced back in a one-inning relief outing April 12 at Minnesota, which pitching coach Dan Warthen said Laffey put his fixes into play.

"The delivery issues that we saw were very obvious," Warthen said. "He worked on them very hard and I think he found out what he was doing and came back and threw the other day in Minnesota and was able to make those corrections quite easy."


Aaron Laffey to pitch Game 2 of doubleheader


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2013) The Mets announced Aaron Laffey will start Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader, choosing the left-hander over Jeremy Hefner for the nightcap. Dillon Gee is scheduled to pitch Game 1 after Monday's contest was postponed due to snow.

Laffey took a no-decision in his first start of the season April 7 against the Marlins, yielding three runs on one walk and 10 hits in 4 1/3 innings.


Mets have second straight game postponed


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2013) Mets pitcher Dillon Gee had his started pushed back a second straight day as Monday's contest against the Rockies was postponed due to snow.

Gee, who was scheduled to pitch Sunday against the Twins before it was pushed back due to inclement weather, will start Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Manager Terry Collins said either Jeremy Hefner or Aaron Laffey will start the nightcap.

"It gets to be tough, because now your pitching is drastically affected, along with your pitching down the line here a little bit," Collins said. "It is what it is. Certainly I understand the thought process today and understood the thought process yesterday. But when you're scheduled to play in these seven days in the two towns we're in, you've got a chance to run into some bad weather this time of year. We have, and we'll just adjust."

Mets push back rotation after postponement


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2013) A wintry mix of snow and rain forced the Twins to postpone their interleague series finale against the visiting Mets on Sunday. As a result, New York pushed back its starting rotation for an upcoming four-game series at Colorado.

Dillon Gee, who was scheduled to start Sunday, will take the hill in Monday's opener, followed by Aaron Laffey on Tuesday, Jeremy Hefner on Wednesday and Jonathon Niese in Thursday's series finale.


Aaron Laffey pushed back but could see more starts


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2013) ESPN.com reported on Monday that the Mets plan on pushing Aaron Laffey's upcoming start back to next Tuesday against the Rockies.

The left-hander was originally scheduled to start Saturday against the Twins but with Thursday's off-day, the club doesn't need a fifth starter this week.

Manager Terry Collins hinted that Laffey could see plenty of starts going forward as Shaun Marcum does not appear to be close to returning.

"He's going to be the guy until we figure out when Shaun's going to be back, or if he's going to be back, or where we stand," Collins said. "There's no number in mind of how many starts. It could be three. It could be seven. I don't know."

Aaron Laffey hit hard in Mets debut


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2013) Mets pitcher Aaron Laffey allowed three runs and 10 hits over 4 1/3 innings of a 4-3 win over Miami Sunday. Laffey, who was making his first start with the Mets after spending 2012 with Toronto, had five strikeouts and a walk in a 90-pitch outing.

With Shaun Marcum sidelined with a neck issue, the left-hander is projected to pitch Saturday at Minnesota. Laffey surrendered three earned runs in five innings during a start with the Blue Jays last year.


Aaron Laffey back at starting line


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2013) At this point, the role is becoming old hat for veteran pitcher Aaron Laffey. With another team -- this time the Mets -- hampered by injuries in the rotation, Laffey was called upon for a spot start during Sunday's game against Miami.

The left-hander went 4-6 with a 4.56 ERA in 22 appearances (16 starts) for the Blue Jays last season. During those starts, he posted a 4.81 ERA and produced lowly totals of 41 strikeouts and 30 walks over 86 innings.


Aaron Laffey tabbed for Sunday start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2013) The team has yet to make it official, but Aaron Laffey is all but certain to make the start Sunday for the Mets, with Shaun Marcum out with a neck injury.

Laffey was initially named as the likely starter by manager Terry Collins earlier in the week, and reporters spotted Laffey's No. 47 jersey hanging in the locker room Friday, awaiting his arrival to the team. 

Laffey pitched with the Blue Jays last season, posting a 4.56 ERA in 100 2/3 innings, and he put up a 3.00 ERA in six appearances with the Mets during spring training. The Marlins have scuffled so far on offense, scoring just one run through their first three games. 


Aaron Laffey expected to start Sunday for Mets


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2013) Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday it's likely Aaron Laffey will start Sunday against the Marlins in place of the injured Shaun Marcum (shoulder, neck). Collins feels Laffey will be able to throw 95 pitches Sunday.

Laffey is 21-25 with a 4.46 ERA in 65 career starts. He was 4-6 with a 4.81 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 16 starts last season for Toronto.


Shaun Marcum unlikely to make start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2013) Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday starting pitcher Shaun Marcum, who had to cut short a simulated game Tuesday, is headed to New York Thursday to be examined. Collins said the discomfort for Marcum starts from his shoulder and goes through his neck.

Collins added Marcum is unlikely to pitch Sunday against the Marlins. Aaron Laffey is the likely choice to take Marcum's turn in the rotation. Collins feels Laffey will be able to give the team about 95 pitches.

Heyman believes Aaron Laffey is the next starting pitcher in the queue for the Mets this season. Laffey has a 3.00 ERA over 12 Grapefruit League innings this spring.
