Dodgers' Ryan Brasier: Re-signs with Dodgers
Brasier signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the Dodgers on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The deal could max out at $13 million if incentives are reached. Brasier was released by the Red Sox last May following a dreadful start but thrived after being picked up by the Dodgers off the scrap heap, posting a 0.70 ERA and 38:10 K:BB over his final 38.2 frames. The 36-year-old will attempt to pick up where he left off in 2024.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Ryan Brasier: Excelling with Los Angeles
Brasier earned a hold against the Nationals on Friday, striking out one batter in a perfect inning.
Brasier entered in the eighth inning to serve as the bridge to closer Evan Phillips and retired the side in order on 14 pitches. His late-frame deployment shows manager Dave Roberts' growing trust in him -- since Aug. 12, Brasier has collected five holds in nine scoreless appearances. Brasier struggled with the Red Sox early this season but has been lights-out since joining the Dodgers in June, posting a 0.86 ERA, 0.64 WHIP and 29:7 K:BB over 31.1 innings while picking up seven holds, two wins and one save....

Dodgers' Ryan Brasier: Picks up second save
Brasier walked one batter in a scoreless inning and earned a save against Baltimore on Monday.
Brasier forced a double play after walking the leadoff batter and finished off the 6-4 win. Since being recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in June, he's allowed just two earned runs over 12.1 innings, lowering his season ERA to 5.13 through 31 MLB appearances. Neither Evan Phillips or Brusdar Graterol appeared in Monday's win.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Ryan Brasier: Selected from OKC
The Dodgers selected Brasier's contract from Triple-A Oklahoma City, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Braiser was released by the Red Sox in May after accumulating a 7.29 ERA and 1.57 WHIP through 21 innings. He signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers on June 5 and has thrown three scoreless innings with five strikeouts in Triple-A since then, earning himself another shot in the bigs. Given his subpar track record in the majors as of late, Braiser will likely be limited to low-leverage outings while in Los Angeles.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Ryan Brasier: Lands with Dodgers
Brasier said Monday that he has agreed to a minor-league contract with the Dodgers, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.
After being designated for assignment by Boston on May 14 and later released, Brasier had been on the open market for about two weeks before linking up with the Dodgers. The 35-year-old right-hander will likely report to Triple-A Oklahoma City with his new organization, hoping to eventually earn a promotion to Los Angeles at some point later this summer. He turned in a 7.29 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over his 20 relief appearances with Boston this season prior to being cut loose.... See More ... See Less
Ryan Brasier: Released by Boston
Brasier was released by the Red Sox on Sunday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
After he was designated for assignment May 14, Brasier is now a free agent following Sunday's transaction. The right-hander has struggled to a bloated 7.29 ERA and 1.57 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 21 innings in 20 appearances with Boston this season. Brasier will likely get another opportunity in the near future considering his experience at the professional level, though he carries little fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Dropped from 40-man roster
The Red Sox designated Brasier for assignment following Sunday's 9-1 loss to the Cardinals, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Brasier is likely being removed from the 26-man active roster and 40-man roster in order to make room for Joely Rodriguez (oblique), who is expected to return from the 15-day injured list Monday. After giving up three earned runs over 2.1 innings in Sunday's loss, Brasier now sports a 7.29 ERA and 1.57 WHIP across 21 frames on the season. If Brasier isn't traded or claimed off waivers, he'll remain in the Boston organization, though he would have the right to refuse an assignment to Triple-A Worcester.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Cedes multiple runs again
Brasier allowed three runs on one hit and two walks while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning in Saturday's 8-7 extra-inning win over Cleveland.
Brasier was the most egregious part of a bullpen meltdown and has allowed multiple runs in five of 14 appearances. He survived an offseason bullpen purge, largely because he was a strike thrower, but the right-hander has walked eight in 14 innings and sports an 8.36 ERA. With news that Kenley Jansen (back) is unavailable Sunday, Brasier, who saved a game earlier in April when Jansen was unavailable, could be in line for another opportunity to close.... See More ...

Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Picks up first save
Brasier picked up the save during Sunday's 2-1 win over the Angels, striking out one over a perfect ninth inning.
Kenley Jansen recorded saves Friday and Saturday, so he was likely unavailable Sunday, which allowed Brasier to get his first save opportunity. The right-hander was sharp and retired Zach Neto, Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani in order. After giving up three runs in his first outing of the season, Brasier has tossed a scoreless frame in seven of his past eight appearances, recording eight strikeouts during that stretch....

Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Logs first hold
Brasier allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one over a scoreless eighth inning to earn his first hold in Thursday's 6-3 win over Detroit.
Brasier made his third consecutive scoreless appearance following an Opening Day meltdown, during which he allowed three runs on two hits, two walks, a hit batsman and threw a wild pitch. This was the first time a save opportunity was presented to Boston, and manager Alex Cora signaled his confidence in Brasier by using him in a setup role.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Settles with Boston
Brasier signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Red Sox on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
2022 saw Brasier record a career-worst 5.78 ERA through 62.1 innings, though his 4.92 K/BB ratio was one of the better marks across the majors. Still, the 35-year-old reliever has a tendency to get hit around more often than not, and holds almost no fantasy value beyond the deepest of leagues.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Perfect inning to secure hold
Brasier pitched a perfect inning Sunday to earn a hold against the Yankees.
Brasier needed just 13 pitches to set down the Yankees in order in the eighth inning and secure his eighth hold of the season Sunday. The veteran reliever has not been sharp most of the season, as he now has a 5.20 ERA and 1.31 WHIP over 45 innings, but he has just three blown saves in 48 appearances and has not allowed a run in six out of his last seven outings. He is a long shot for saves the rest of the season but may lock down a few more holds.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Collects first save of year
Brasier struck out two in a perfect 11th inning Friday to record his first save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Yankees.
John Schreiber, Garrett Whitlock and Tanner Houck -- who blew the save in the ninth but stayed in to pitch a scoreless 10th -- had all seen action already by the time Boston retook the lead in the top of the 11th, leaving Brasier to handle the save opportunity. Given the 34-year-old's 5.40 ERA through six appearances in July, Brasier isn't likely to see consistent high-leverage work after the All-Star break despite getting the job done Friday....

Red Sox's Ryan Brasier: Recalled by Boston
Brasier was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Saturday.
Brasier struggled with the Red Sox over the first month and a half of the season, posting a 6.28 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 14.1 innings over 18 relief appearances. The right-hander was sent down last week but tossed two scoreless innings in Worcester following his demotion. He'll now rejoin Boston's bullpen after Hansel Robles (back) was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday.... See More ... See Less
