Heath Hembree: Released by Detroit
Hembree (forearm) was released by the Tigers on Sunday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
The right-hander was cut loose by the Red Sox in late April and quickly latched on with the Tigers via a minor-league deal, but he made just six appearances before going down with a forearm injury. Hembree was activated from the injured list by Triple-A Toledo on Friday but will now depart the organization.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Heath Hembree: Lands with Detroit
Hembree signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Monday.
After electing to become a free agent last week when Tampa Bay moved him off its 40-man roster, Hembree has quickly caught on with a new organization. Though Hembree is initially expected to report to Triple-A Toledo, he should have a clearer path to capturing a more permanent spot in Detroit's big-league bullpen than he did with the American League East-leading Rays, who had several promising relief arms in the majors and higher levels of the minors. Hembree had posted a 1.29 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in seven innings with Triple-A Durham this season and tossed 1.1 scoreless innings in his lone relief appearance with the Rays prior to being designated for assignment....

The Rays designated Hembree for assignment Wednesday, Kristie Ackert of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Rays' Heath Hembree: Joining big-league bullpen
The Rays selected Hembree's contract from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Rays' Heath Hembree: Headed to minors
Tampa Bay reassigned Hembree to the minors Wednesday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Hembree made 10 scoreless appearances in the Grapefruit League this spring, but he was always on the outside looking in for a spot in Tampa Bay's talent-filled bullpen. The 34-year-old struggled to a 7.36 ERA in 22 major-league innings last season between the Pirates and Dodgers.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Heath Hembree: Reaches MiLB deal with Tampa Bay
Hembree agreed Wednesday with the Rays on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to MLB spring training, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The journeyman reliever has seen big-league action in each of the past 10 seasons, but even though he'll get a chance to compete for a spot in the Tampa Bay bullpen in spring training, he'll likely face an uphill battle to break camp with the big club. Hembree walked a career-high 15.9 percent of the batters he faced over his 22 big-league innings between the Dodgers and Pirates in 2022, and he was hit hard when he wasn't issuing free passes, giving up six home runs....

Dodgers' Heath Hembree: Nabs win in Dodgers debut
Hembree (3-0) earned the win over the Mets on Tuesday. He allowed two hits and struck out one batter in one scoreless inning.
Hembree was called in from the bullpen in the sixth inning on the same day that his contract was selected from Triple-A Oklahoma City. The veteran reliever allowed a pair of singles but kept the game tied, and he was rewarded with the win as a result of Los Angeles scoring the go-ahead run in the following frame. Hembree will look for better results with the Dodgers after he posted a 7.16 ERA and 1.90 WHIP over 20 appearances as a Pirate earlier in the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Heath Hembree: Summoned to big leagues
The Dodgers selected Hembree's contract from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

Dodgers' Heath Hembree: Lands in Dodgers oganization
Hembree has produced a 5.14 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 10:1 K:BB over seven innings across seven appearances for Triple-A Oklahoma City since signing a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on June 30.
After getting cut loose by Pittsburgh on June 27, Hembree found a new organization soon thereafter, but the Dodgers had him spend about a month building up at extended spring training in Arizona before assigning him to Triple-A. Hembree has looked good in his initial appearances for Oklahoma City, but his lack of a 40-man roster spot could be an obstacle in him potentially making his way to the big-league roster before season's end....

Heath Hembree: Cuts ties with Pittsburgh
The Pirates released Hembree on Sunday.
After clearing waivers when he was designated for assignment Wednesday, Hembree likely wasn't keen on reporting to Triple-A Indianapolis, so the Pirates opted to part ways with the veteran reliever. The 33-year-old may still have to settle for a minor-league deal if he wants to find work in another organization after he turned in a 7.16 ERA and 1.90 WHIP across 16.1 innings out of the Pittsburgh bullpen prior to being removed from the 40-man roster....

Pirates' Heath Hembree: Joins Bucs bullpen
Hembree signed a one-year contract with the Pirates on Tuesday.
Hembree will move on to his fifth team in three years, after he split the 2020 campaign with the Red Sox and Phillies and the 2021 campaign with the Reds and Mets. Before he was waived by Cincinnati last August and then claimed by the Mets, Hembree enjoyed a brief run as the Reds' closer, converting nine of 11 save chances. He ultimately finished the season with an ugly 5.59 ERA, but a 4.31 FIP, 1.19 WHIP and 24.3 K-BB% all point to him pitching better than the ERA indicated. While joining a Pittsburgh bullpen that's light on impact arms, Hembree should have a good chance at seizing a late-inning role, though he may be behind David Bednar and Chris Stratton when it comes to getting save chances....

Mets' Heath Hembree: Notches ninth save
Hembree struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Saturday to record his ninth save of the season, and first as a Met, in an 11-9 win over the Nationals during the first game of a doubleheader.
The veteran reliever served as the Reds' closer through most of July, but Hembree got cut loose after posting a 16.71 ERA over his final seven innings for Cincinnati. Claimed by the Mets off waivers in August, he's returned to his prior form, posting a 3.60 ERA and 6:3 K:BB through five innings for his new club. Edwin Diaz was getting the twin bill off after working three of the previous four days and Seth Lugo and Trevor May both entered the matinee before Hembree did, so this will likely be his last save chance of the season, but if he keeps pitching well he could work his way into a consistent setup role....
