  • Athletics' Aaron Brooks: Outrighted to Las Vegas

    Brooks cleared waivers Tuesday and was sent outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

    Brooks was designated for assignment Sunday after posting a 5.82 ERA and 1.62 WHIP through 21.2 innings across four starts. Barring a significant turnaround in the minors, it is unlikely the 34-year-old right-hander returns to Oakland's rotation this season.

  • Athletics' Aaron Brooks: DFA'd by Oakland

    The Athletics designated Brooks for assignment on Sunday.

    Brooks joined Oakland's rotation in mid-May but won't retain his place on the 40-man roster after he made four starts and posted a 5.82 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 10:6 K:BB over 21.2 innings. Luis Medina (knee) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list in a corresponding move and will start Sunday in Atlanta.

  • Athletics' Aaron Brooks: Tagged for seven runs

    Brooks allowed seven runs on seven hits and a walk over 4.1 innings in a no-decision against Atlanta on Saturday. He struck out one.

    Five of the seven runs charged to Brooks came in Atlanta's six-run fifth inning. The 34-year-old right-hander, who is still looking for his first win of the season, now sports a 5.82 ERA with a 1.62 WHIP and 10:6 K:BB over 21.2 innings -- he came into the day with a 3.63 ERA through his first three starts. Brooks will look for a better result in his next outing, currently scheduled for next week at home versus Toronto.

  • Athletics' Aaron Brooks: Struggles against Astros

    Brooks (0-2) allowed five runs (one earned) on nine hits and three walks over 4.1 innings Sunday, striking out one and taking a loss against Houston.

    Brooks worked around some danger in each of the first three innings without allowing a run before the Astros broke out for five runs in the fourth. Fortunately for him, only one run was earned before a throwing error by Max Schuemann. Brooks fired a quality start in each of his first two MLB appearances this season but needed 90 pitches to get through 4.1 innings Sunday. He now owns a 3.63 ERA with a 9:5 K:BB through 17.1 innings. Brooks' next start is lined up to be in Atlanta next weekend.

  • Athletics' Aaron Brooks: Quality start Tuesday

    Brooks did not factor into the decision in the Athletics' win over the Rockies on Tuesday, allowing three earned runs on six hits and a walk over six innings. He also hit a batter and struck out three.

    The three runs off the journeyman right-hander came from home runs, as Ryan McMahon tagged him for a two-run shot in the first before Ezequiel Tovar slugged one of his two round-trippers on the night in the fifth. Otherwise, Brooks turned in a smooth, efficient outing, one that saw him get through his six frames on just 85 pitches. The 34-year-old has been a pleasant surprise with consecutive quality starts since being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas last Wednesday, and with Paul Blackburn (foot), Alex Wood (shoulder) and Joe Boyle (back) all on the injured list, Brooks lines up for another turn Sunday at home against the Astros, a team he held to three runs over seven frames in his season debut last Wednesday.

  • Athletics' Aaron Brooks: Draws another start

    Brooks is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Rockies in Oakland.

    After having not started in the big leagues since 2019, the 34-year-old Brooks was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas last week and impressed in his move into the Oakland rotation, tossing seven innings of three-run ball while striking out five in a loss to the Mariners. With three Oakland starters currently on the 15-day injured list and four more starting candidates on the 60-day IL, Brooks looks like he'll have a hold on a rotation spot until the Athletics' pitching staff gets healthier.

  • Athletics' Aaron Brooks: Solid outing in loss

    Brooks (0-1) took the loss against the Astros on Wednesday, allowing three runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five over seven innings.

    Brooks struggled out of the gate in his first MLB outing since 2022, allowing back-to-back hits to open the contest, which would lead to two runs coming across for Houston. However, the 34-year-old right-hander recovered nicely after the rough start, surrendering only one more run over the next six frames, which came on a sacrifice fly from Jeremy Pena. Brooks threw 21 of 28 first pitches for strikes and produced nine whiffs on the night but was unfortunately tagged with the loss due to Oakland's offense being stifled by Framber Valdez.

  • Athletics' Aaron Brooks: Added to roster ahead of start

    The Athletics selected Brooks' contract from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

    Brooks will start Wednesday's game in Houston in what will be his first start at the major-league level since Sept. 13, 2019. The 34-year-old has posted a 4.57 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 32:10 K:BB in 43.1 innings this season with Las Vegas and won't make for an appealing streaming option.

  • Athletics' Aaron Brooks: Ticketed for start Wednesday

    The Athletics will call up Brooks from Triple-A Las Vegas to start Wednesday's game against the Astros in Houston, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    With six starters on the injured list and with another two in Alex Wood (shoulder) and Osvaldo Bido (finger) considered day-to-day, the Athletics will bring Brooks up from Triple-A to help patch one of the many holes in the rotation. Currently in the midst of his third stint in the Oakland organization after signing a minor-league deal in February, Brooks will be making his first appearance in the majors since 2022 and his first start in the big leagues since 2019. The 34-year-old right-hander has turned in underwhelming ratios at Triple-A this season (4.57 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 32:10 K:BB in 43.1 innings), though his numbers look more favorable when considering the hitter-friendly context of the Pacific Coast League.

  • Athletics' Aaron Brooks: Catches on with Oakland

    Brooks signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Friday.

    Brooks will begin his third stint with the Athletics organization, after previously seeing big-league action with the club in the 2015 season and during the 2018 and 2019 seasons. He spent the entire 2023 season in the minors with the Padres' Triple-A affiliate in El Paso, logging a 4.95 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 51:20 K:BB in 63.2 innings. Brooks will likely open the 2024 campaign as a member of Triple-A Las Vegas' bullpen.

  • Padres' Aaron Brooks: Sent to minor-league camp

    The Padres reassigned Brooks to minor-league camp Wednesday.

    San Diego signed Brooks to a minor-league deal in December, but the 32-year-old wasn't able to win a spot in the Friars' Opening Day bullpen after attending camp as a non-roster invitee. Assuming he sticks with the San Diego organization, Brooks could serve as a swingman at Triple-A El Paso to begin the 2023 campaign.

  • Padres' Aaron Brooks: Gets NRI from San Diego

    Brooks and the Padres agreed Wednesday to a minor-league contract with an invitation to major-league spring training.

    Brooks was lit up for eight earned runs over just 9.1 total big-league frames last season with the Cardinals, who officially cut him loose in October. The veteran reliever will look to right the ship in the Padres' camp this spring, though he faces an uphill battle to actually claim an Opening Day roster spot.

  • Aaron Brooks: Parts with St. Louis

    The Cardinals released Brooks on Friday.

    After spending the 2020 and 2021 seasons in the Korea Baseball Organization, Brooks returned stateside for the 2022 campaign, signing a one-year, $1.4 million deal with St. Louis. Brooks secured a spot in the Cardinals' Opening Day bullpen, but he was dropped from the 40-man roster one month into the season after yielding eight earned runs in 9.1 innings. He went on to spend the remainder of the season at Triple-A Memphis, where he pitched to a 5.56 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 69.2 frames. The 32-year-old right-hander will have to settle for a minor-league deal if he opts to keep playing in affiliated ball in 2023.

  • Cardinals' Aaron Brooks: Clears waivers

    Brooks cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Brooks will remain in the organization after being designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Monday. The right-hander made five relief appearances for St. Louis to begin the year, and he posted a 7.71 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 9.1 innings.

  • Cardinals' Aaron Brooks: Dropped from 40-man roster

    The Cardinals designated Brooks for assignment Monday.

    Brooks and long reliever Packy Naughton were dropped from the active roster, which the Cardinals needed to reduce from 28 to 26 ahead of Monday's game against the Royals. In the case of Brooks, he'll also lose his spot on the 40-man roster, as he didn't have any minor-league options remaining. After agreeing to a one-year, $1.4 million deal with St. Louis in the offseason, Brooks earned a spot on the Opening Day roster but was hit hard across his five relief outings. He'll finish his time in St. Louis with a 7.71 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB across 9.1 innings.

  • Cardinals' Aaron Brooks: Hit hard Thursday

    Brooks allowed three runs on three hits and a walk with one strikeout in 2.2 innings during Thursday's 5-0 loss to the Marlins.

    Brooks gave up a solo home run to Jesus Sanchez in the sixth inning and a two-run blast to Jazz Chisholm in the seventh. It's been a rough start to the season for Brooks following a two-year stint in the KBO. He's posted a 6.35 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 4:1 K:BB across 5.2 innings in his first three appearances as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen -- he's only kept runs off the board in one of those outings.

  • Cardinals' Aaron Brooks: Contract selected

    Brooks' contract was selected by the Cardinals on Friday.

    The 31-year-old impressed enough in camp to earn a spot despite his poor 6.49 ERA in 170.2 career innings at the MLB level. He's had far more success in Korea over the last two seasons, cruising to a 2.79 ERA in 229.1 frames. He could compete for a back-end rotation spot or serve as a long reliever.

  • Cardinals' Aaron Brooks: Invited to camp by Cardinals

    Brooks joined the Cardinals as a non-roster invitee Monday.

    The 31-year-old righty owns a poor 6.49 ERA in 170.2 career major-league innings. He hasn't missed nearly enough bats, striking out just 16.1 percent of opposing batters. Brooks spent the last two seasons pitching for the Kia Tigers in Korea, where his 2.79 ERA in 36 starts suggests he may have figured something out. His strikeout rate remained a fairly modest 20.1 percent against lesser competition overseas, however, so he may still lack the ability to put big-league hitters away.

  • Aaron Brooks: Heads to Korea

    Brooks will leave the Orioles to sign with the Kia Tigers of the KBO, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

    Brooks threw a career-high 110 innings last season, split between Oakland and Baltimore. He wasn't particularly good, finishing with a 5.65 ERA and a 17.0 percent strikeout rate. He could return to American baseball in the future but is unlikely to be a significant asset unless his skillset changes in Korea.

  • Orioles' Aaron Brooks: Captures win as reliever

    Brooks (6-8) allowed one run on one hit with one walk and four strikeouts across seven innings during a relief appearance to earn a victory over the Mariners on Friday.

    The Orioles pitching strategy Friday worked to perfection, as Richard Bleier got through the first two innings and then Brooks finished the game as the primary pitcher. Bleier yielded a pair of runs in his two frames, but Brooks almost held the Mariners completely off the scoreboard and allowed the Orioles to win their 50th game. Brooks improved to 6-8 and has a 5.75 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 81 strikeouts across 108 innings this season.
