It’s a Dull news day around here (sorry, couldn’t resist) as the Blue Jays announce they have claimed a RHP off waivers from the Yankees.
Reliever Ryan Dull was DFA’d by New York on Sunday after their series versus the Jays. He pitched in the 9th inning of Saturday’s 13-3 loss, giving up doubles to Brandon Drury and Richard Urena, and a walk to Danny Jansen. After making his major league debut in 2015, he had a solid 2016 season with Oakland, posting a 2.42 ERA (3.58 FIP) with a 0.874 WHIP.
His 2017 and 2018 seasons weren’t as great, as he was limited to only 67 innings over two seasons. He batted a couple injuries and rode the shuttle back and forth between the minors. He has a 13.50 ERA over 11 innings on the 2019 season (most of his year has been spent at the AAA level).
Dull was claimed off waivers by the Giants last month, then claimed by the Yankees less than two weeks later. Dull has been on the Yankees active roster since Sept 1st, until he was designated yet again on September 15th.
To make room on the 40-man roster, Tim Mayza has been moved to the 60-day injured list.
