Top Daulton Jefferies News

  • Pirates' Daulton Jefferies: Traded to Pittsburgh

    The Pirates acquired Jefferies from the Giants on Friday in exchange for Rodolfo Nolasco, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Jefferies had been designated for assignment after allowing nine earned runs on 14 hits and two walks over 4.2 innings during his brief time with the Giants. It was his first stint in the big leagues since 2022, as he missed all of 2023 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. Jefferies figures to join the rotation at Triple-A Indianapolis.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Cast off 40-man roster

    The Giants designated Jefferies for assignment Monday.

    He'll cede his spot on the 40-man roster to right-hander Mason Black, who was called up from Triple-A Sacramento ahead of his scheduled start Monday versus the Phillies. Jefferies has made two appearances (one start) for the Giants this season, giving up nine earned runs on 14 hits and two walks over 4.2 innings.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Back in majors

    The Giants recalled Jefferies from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jefferies was demoted Thursday but will quickly rejoin the major-league club. The right-hander is taking the bullpen spot of Mitch White, who was designated for assignment. Blake Snell's (thigh) spot in the rotation comes back around Monday against the Phillies, and Jefferies could provide some length.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Sent to Triple-A

    The Giants optioned Jefferies to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Jefferies was used in bulk relief in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Red Sox, allowing four runs over 2.2 innings as he took the loss. He'll rejoin Sacramento's rotation, and his spot on the Giants' 26-man active roster spot will go to right-hander Randy Rodriguez, who was called up from Triple-A.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Takes loss as primary pitcher

    Jefferies (0-2) took the loss against the Red Sox on Wednesday, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three batters over 2.2 innings.

    Jefferies was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to make what was initially expected to be a spot start. The Giants instead opted to open the game with lefty Erik Miller on the mound before handing the ball to Jefferies to begin the second inning. Jefferies got out of his first frame unscathed but gave up two runs in the third and two more in the fourth to put himself in line for the loss. The 28-year-old has yielded nine earned runs across 4.2 innings over his two outings this season, and it's not clear if he'll get additional big-league opportunities (either as a traditional starter or primary pitcher) while Blake Snell (thigh) remains on the injured list.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Called up, will be primary pitcher

    The Giants recalled Jefferies from Triple-A Sacramento prior to Wednesday's game against the Red Sox in Boston.

    Left-hander Erik Miller is slated to open the game for the Giants, but he's unlikely to work more than an inning or two before turning the game over to the bullpen. According to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area, Jefferies is expected to cover the bulk of the innings out of the bullpen as he makes his first appearance for the Giants since giving up five earned runs over two innings in a spot start back on March 31 in San Diego. The Giants optioned Landen Roupp to Triple-A to clear room on the 26-man active roster for Jefferies.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Expected to make start Wednesday

    Jefferies is expected to be called up from Triple-A Sacramento to start Wednesday's game in Boston, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The Giants have yet to announce their scheduled starter for Wednesday, but Jefferies was spotted in the clubhouse at Fenway Park on Tuesday. Jefferies is in line to start in place of Blake Snell (intercostal) and could earn additional starts with Snell expected to be on the 15-day injured list for a while. Jefferies was torched for nine runs (five earned) over two innings in a spot start earlier this season but owns a 3.44 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB over 18.1 innings across four outings (two starts) with Sacramento.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Optioned to Triple-A

    Jefferies was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

    Jefferies was clobbered for nine runs (five earned) over two innings in a spot start Sunday in San Diego and now finds himself back in the minors. He dealt with hip soreness during the outing, but the fact that Jefferies was optioned and not placed on the injured list suggests the hip is a non-issue. He'll go into Sacramento's rotation.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Dealing with hip discomfort

    Jefferies left his start against the Padres on Sunday a little worse for wear, as he is dealing with left hip discomfort, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jefferies had a rough go of it against San Diego, allowing nine runs (five earned) on nine hits while striking out a batter over two innings. To make matters worse, he's now dealing with an injury that will be evaluated again Monday.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Contract selected ahead of start

    Jefferies had his contract selected by the Giants ahead of his start against the Padres on Sunday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The 28-year-old will make his first appearance in the big leagues since 2022 as he spent last season rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. Jefferies pitched well during spring training with a 2.57 ERA and 16:3 K:BB across 14 innings to earn the early-season look in the rotation. He may be in line for just a spot start, however, as the Giants could have offseason signing Blake Snell available to make his team debut the next time Jefferies' turn in the rotation would come up next weekend versus the Padres.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Starting Sunday

    Jefferies will be called up to start for the Giants on Sunday in San Diego, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    The Giants will need to make moves on their 26-man and 40-man rosters to clear a spot for Jefferies. The 28-year-old hasn't pitched in the majors in nearly two years after having a second Tommy John surgery, but he impressed this spring in allowing four earned runs with a 16:3 K:BB over 14 innings. Jefferies could earn additional starts, depending on when Blake Snell is ready.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Sent to minors

    The Giants reassigned Jefferies to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday.

    During the early part of spring training, the Giants viewed Jefferies as a candidate to handle a swingman role for the big club, but the team ultimately didn't have a spot for him after Keaton Winn healed up from an elbow injury and after the team added reigning National League Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell to its pitching staff. Jefferies missed the entire 2023 season while recovering from his second career Tommy John surgery, but since he had the procedure in May 2022, he shouldn't face any major restrictions during the upcoming campaign. The 28-year-old right-hander turned in quality results in Cactus League play, striking out 16 while allowing four earned runs on 14 hits and three walks over 14 innings.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Possibility for swingman role

    Jefferies is a candidate to fill a swingman role for the Giants early in 2024, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jefferies is a non-roster invitee in the Giants' camp, but he's done well so far. He's allowed two runs on five hits over four innings, striking out five and walking none. Jefferies' role is far from set in stone -- he could be a candidate for spot starts given the uncertainty around the Giants' rotation with Keaton Winn (elbow) struggling to get up to speed, Alex Cobb (hip) still on the mend, and Tristan Beck (arm) expected to miss multiple months. Nonetheless, Jefferies seems to have a realistic path to the major-league roster.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Opportunity could knock

    Jefferies could be needed in the Giants' rotation sooner rather than later if Keaton Winn (elbow) is sidelined, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    A non-roster invitee, Jefferies threw to hitters Tuesday for the first time since May of 2022 following a long rehab after his second Tommy John surgery. Given the length of time that he's missed, the expectation is that Jefferies will head to Triple-A Sacramento to begin the season. However, if he gets off to a nice start with Sacramento he could be needed on the big club in short order, particularly if Winn's elbow injury lingers. Jefferies posted a 5.75 ERA and 37:14 K:BB over 56.1 innings for the Athletics from 2020-22.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Full-go at start of camp

    Jefferies (elbow) will not have any restrictions at the beginning of spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jefferies has been sidelined for the past year and a half while rehabbing from his second Tommy John surgery, but he's fully recovered now and will throw a bullpen session Wednesday. The right-hander inked a minor-league contract with the Giants in December and seems likely to open the 2024 campaign in Triple-A Sacramento's rotation.

  • Giants' Daulton Jefferies: Lands with Giants

    Jefferies (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Friday.

    Jefferies broke the news himself on his X account. The 28-year-old hasn't pitched since May of 2022 while recovering from his second Tommy John surgery. He should be healthy for the start of spring training but is likely headed to Triple-A Sacramento to knock some rust off.

  • Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Loses 40-man spot

    The Athletics outrighted Jefferies (elbow) to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.

    Oakland removed Jefferies from the 60-day injured list last week, but it was strictly a procedural move while the team weighed whether or not to tender him a contract for the 2023 season ahead of Friday's deadline. Given that Jefferies underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career back in September and had turned in poor ratios (5.75 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 9.5 K-BB%) over his 56.1 innings in the big leagues, it likely wasn't a tough decision for the Athletics to remove him from their 40-man roster. He'll stick in the organization and while he spends the entire 2023 season rehabbing from elbow surgery.

  • Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Gets cast off Monday

    Jefferies had his cast removed Monday and is now using a brace that allows for adjustable range of motion on his surgically repaired elbow, the Associated Press reports.

    Jefferies underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career Sept. 9 and appears to be making good early progress. The right-hander has been through the gauntlet health-wise in 2022, as he also underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in June. Jefferies is expected to miss all of next season, at minimum, and his prognosis for 2024 remains firmly up in the air since he has a long way to go in his recovery.

  • Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Gets Tommy John surgery

    Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Jefferies underwent Tommy John surgery Friday to repair UCL damage in his right elbow.

    The Tommy John procedure is the second of Jefferies' career; he previously had the reconstructive elbow surgery in 2017. The elbow surgery comes just three months after he underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery, and the cumulative effects of the two procedures in quick succession cast significant doubt about his future. At a minimum, Jefferies will be sidelined for the 2023 season, and he may not be a safe bet to receive full clearance for spring training in 2024. The 27-year-old could be a non-tender candidate this winter.
