Mets' Erik Goeddel: Returning to Triple-A

News: Goeddel was sent back to Triple-A Las Vegas following Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Goeddel's recent results haven't been encouraging, having allowed seven runs over three innings in his last four appearances. Another unspectacular pitcher (Sean Gilmartin) will replace him in the bullpen for the time being, but Goeddel could rejoin the big league club when rosters expand in September.

Mets' Sean Gilmartin: Rejoining big league club

News: Gilmartin is set to be recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

In the minors since June 30, Gilmartin's results haven't been overly impressive with Triple-A, owning a 6.12 ERA in five starts after the All-Star break. Despite being a starter in the minors, the 2011 first-round pick will likely join the Mets' bullpen, replacing Erik Goeddel.

Fernando Rodney
Marlins' Fernando Rodney: Records 25th save Wednesday
Fernando Rodney, RP, MIA
8/24/2016
News: Rodney recorded his 25th save of the season Wednesday, loading the bases on a walk and a pair of singles before retiring the final batter.

Rodney entered the ninth with a 3-0 lead, so Royals third baseman Christian Colon represented the winning running when he stepped in to face Rodney with two outs and the bases loaded. Rodney escaped by inducing a line out to the shortstop, keeping his ERA at 2.17. Rodney has now converted eight straight save opportunities for the Marlins, although Wednesday was one of the most nerve-provoking.

Paul Clemens
Padres' Paul Clemens: Strikes out season-high six in Wednesday's loss
Paul Clemens, RP, SD
8/24/2016
News: Clemens (2-3) pitched 5.1 innings, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits while striking out six Cubs in Wednesday's loss.

Clemens five runs allowed Wednesday were the most he's given up in an outing this year. That was offset somewhat by a season-best six strikeouts and no walks, but ultimately the 28-year-old wasn't much of a match for the Cubs talented lineup. Since debuting with the Padres on July 4, Clemens is 1-3 with a 6.47 ERA. Needless to say, the righty is best left on the wire under a majority of formats.

Cubs' Aroldis Chapman: Locks down 29th save Wednesday afternoon

News: Chapman allowed a hit and struck out the side to secure his 29th save of the season Wednesday against the Padres.

Since blowing the save and being tagged with his only loss of the year last Friday, Chapman has rebounded nicely by locking down two saves while striking out four in his last two appearances. Since joining the Cubs, he's 9-for-11 in save opportunities and has surrendered just two earned runs in 15 games with the team.

Jonathon Niese
Mets' Jon Niese: Will undergo knee surgery

News: Niese will undergo a minor surgery on his left knee, James Wagner of the New York Times reports.

Fortunately, the recovery process for the surgery is expected to be quick, giving the Mets hope that Niese will be back sometime in mid-September. Until he's back, Robert Gsellman will be a part of New York's rotation. Before injuring his knee, Niese had posted a lofty 5.50 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 29 games, both of which are well above his career averages of 4.07 and 1.38, respectively.

News: Gsellman will join the Mets rotation while Jon Niese is on the disabled list, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

Gsellman pitched 3.1 innings with the Mets on Tuesday, the first MLB innings of his career. In said game, he allowed two hits and three walks, but didn't allow any runs. Unfortunately, his outings at Triple-A Las Vegas haven't gone as well. After nine starts at the Triple-A level, Gsellman is 1-5 with a 5.73 ERA and 1.48 WHIP.

Dodgers' Louis Coleman: Rehab assignment moves to Triple-A

News: Coleman's minor league rehab assignment has been moved to Triple-A, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Coleman should be able to return by the end of the month, or at the latest, September 1 when rosters expand. He has a 3.70 ERA in 41.1 innings with the Dodgers this year.

Nationals' A.J. Cole: Scheduled to start Saturday

News: Cole is scheduled to start for Saturday's matchup against Colorado, Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Cole took a loss in his season debut with the Nationals on Monday, giving up four runs off five hits (including two home runs) over seven innings. His numbers at Triple-A Syracuse haven't been stellar either, as he's 8-8 with a 4.26 ERA after 22 starts. However, he's now slated to take the mound Saturday when Washington hosts the Rockies.

Cory Gearrin
Giants' Cory Gearrin: Continues to struggle since return
Cory Gearrin, RP, SF
8/24/2016
News: Gearrin surrendered two runs on three hits while retiring just one batter in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Gearrin has struggled since returning from the disabled list Aug. 18, surrendering five runs in just 1.2 innings. After posting a 2.16 ERA and 13 holds through his first 36 appearances, Gearrin fell off the map in middle of the summer months before being placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. Even if he rights the ship, he likely still won't have value in leagues that count holds due to the strong play of Derek Law, Hunter Strickland and Sergio Romo who have all solidified their roles as late-inning options for the Giants.
