Aardsma hasn't pitched in a big-league game since 2013, but the Braves came into play on Friday with the highest bullpen ERA in the National League. 

The veteran right-hander has a career 4.23 ERA over his eight-year tenure in the big leagues.


Report: David Aardsma opts out of Dodgers deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Aardsma possessed a June 1 opt-out clause, and the Dodgers had a 72-hour window after the clause was triggered to put him on the active roster or risk losing the reliever. That didn't happen, and Aardsma has chosen to become a free agent.

Aardsma posted a 2.41 ERA and 23:7 K:BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

SB Nation site True Blue LA reported Aardsma signed a minor-league deal and will be one of 19 non-roster invitees to spring training.

The right-handed Aardsma had a 1.29 ERA with 11 saves in 33 games with the Cardinals' Triple-A affiliate in Memphis. From 2004-2013, in major-league stints with the Giants, Cubs, White Sox, Red Sox, Mariners, Yankees and Mets, Aardsma posted a 4.23 ERA and recorded 69 saves.

Aardsma has been pitched with the team's Triple-A affiliate in Memphis, posting a 1.59 ERA in 17 innings of work. He could be a candidate for a callup if the Cardinals need bullpen help down the road, and it is not clear if he has another opt-out date in the future. 


Cardinals sign David Aardsma to minor-league deal


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"We bring guys in here with the purpose of seeing how they can make our team better," manager Mike Matheny said. "And the only way we can see that is when they get on the mound and show what they have in comparison to others. That's how David is going to fit in with this, and I'm anxious to watch him compete."

Aardsma spent the first part of spring with the Indians. He has posted a 2.57 ERA and 6:1 K:BB ratio in seven innings.

Seven Mets declare free agency


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/6/2013) Mets starting pitcher Aaron Harang, relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins, starting pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka, relief pitcher David Aardsma, relief pitcher Tim Byrdak, relief pitcher Pedro Feliciano and relief pitcher Frank Francisco have filed for free agency.

Hawkins and Francisco both spent time as the Mets closer, but Bobby Parnell is expected to fill that role in 2014.


Mets to mix and match at closer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2013) Mets manager Terry Collins said Tuesday he will mix and match at closer while Bobby Parnell (neck) is on the 15-day disabled list. David Aardsma will be in the mix for save chances, and Collins hinted left-handed reliever Scott Rice could be used in certain matchups.

Collins also mentioned LaTroy Hawkins, Gonzalez Germen and Carlos Torres as right-handed closer options.


David Aardsma is a shrewd pickup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/6/2013) Forget about the two consecutive rough outings David Aardsma had while filling in for Mets closer Bobby Parnell (a blown save Aug. 2 and a loss Aug. 3). Aardsma had been pretty solid all season up to that point, and it's easy to forget that a) he's only 31 years old, and b) he was a near-elite closer for the Mariners just a few years ago.

In 2009 and 2010, Aardsma saved a combined 69 games, with a 2.90 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. He also sported a 9.6 K/9. While the strikeouts are down this season (8.0 K/9), Aardsma has still been effective in middle relief for the Mets. 

It's not a certainty that he will get all of the save opportunities (LaTroy Hawkins could find his way into the mix), but Aardsma was Terry Collins' first choice for the save on Friday when Parnell was out with the neck injury, and he should be back for the next opportunity.

For a team desperately in need of saves, Aardsma makes for a solid speculative add in most formats.  


David Aardsma stumbles in save chance


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2013) With regular closer Bobby Parnell out with a neck injury, the Mets were forced to turn to reliever David Aardsma to try and close out Friday's game against the Royals.

Unfortunately, Aardsma would not prove up to the task, as he allowed the Royals to tie the game on two walks and a hit in two-thirds of an inning before he was removed. The Mets would go on to win, 4-2 in 11 innings.  


Mets adding David Aardsma to bullpen


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2013) The Mets will promote reliever David Aardsma from Triple-A Las Vegas Saturday, ESPN reports. The 31-year-old has not pitched in the majors since making one appearance with the Yankees last season. 

Returning last year from Tommy John surgery, Aardsma had a 1.12 ERA in eight relief appearances this season with Vegas. He started the year in the minors in the Miami Marlins organization but opted out after a month.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com

by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
