  • Eric Stout: Elects free agency

    Stout (back) rejected an outright assignment to Triple-A Indianapolis and elected free agency Thursday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Stout was acquired by the Pirates from the Cubs in June but won't remain with Pittsburgh through the offseason. He appeared in 20 games between the two clubs and had a 5.64 ERA, 1.84 WHIP and 25:16 K:BB across 22.1 innings, and he finished the season on the injured list with lower-back discomfort.

  • Pirates' Eric Stout: Sidelined with back injury

    Stout was placed on the 15-day injured list with lower-back discomfort Thursday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Stout was hit hard during Wednesday's relief appearance against the Yankees, allowing four runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one in one inning. It's possible that the southpaw's back injury contributed to his struggles, and he'll be forced to miss the remainder of the year after landing on the IL. Over 20 relief appearances between the Cubs and Pirates this year, Stout posted a 5.64 ERA and 1.84 WHIP in 22.1 innings.

    Stout made 13 relief appearances for the Pirates between August and early September, and he posted a 4.73 ERA and 2.03 WHIP in 13.1 innings across that span. He should serve mainly as a low-leverage reliever for Pittsburgh after Tyler Beede was designated for assignment Thursday.

    Stout has spent the last week in the minors but will rejoin the Pirates' bullpen to provide additional depth for Wednesday's twin bill. He's posted a 4.67 ERA and 1.67 WHIP in 17.1 innings over 16 major-league appearances this year and will likely head back to Indianapolis following the doubleheader.

  • Pirates' Eric Stout: Demoted to Indy

    The Pirates optioned Stout to Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday.

    Stout was sent out to Triple-A to clear a spot on the active roster for right-hander JT Brubaker (personal), who was reinstated from the paternity list and should be plugged back into the rotation this weekend against the Blue Jays. During his four-week stay in the big leagues, Stout posted a 5.25 ERA and 2.08 WHIP over 12 innings out of the bullpen while notching a save and a hold.

  • Pirates' Eric Stout: Notches one-out save

    Stout earned a save against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday by retiring the only batter he faced.

    Wil Crowe came on in the eighth frame and looked like he could be in line for a two-inning save, but he loaded the bases in the ninth and was yanked after allowing a run. Stout came on with the tying run at first base and got Jordan Luplow to fly out to end the threat. Stout has three saves in the minors this season, but he isn't likely to see extensive ninth-inning work down the stretch. Wednesday's save was his first as a major-leaguer.

  • Pirates' Eric Stout: Traded to Pirates

    The Pirates acquired Stout from the Cubs on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    After being designated for assignment by the Cubs on Thursday, Stout will stay within the division and join the Pirates' 40-man roster. The reliever appeared in two games with the Cubs last week, surrendering two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out six in 3.2 frames. Since the Pirates already have a full 26-man active roster, Stout will likely report to Triple-A Indianapolis and work out of the bullpen.

His demotion comes after he was one of the few bright spots for the Cubs in Wednesday's 19-5 loss to the Padres. Stout worked 1.2 perfect frames in long relief, striking out four of the five batters he faced.

  • Cubs' Eric Stout: Gets big-league call-up

    The Cubs selected Stout's contract from Triple-A Iowa on Monday.

    The addition of Stout gives the Cubs a fresh left-handed arm out of the bullpen after southpaw Sean Newcomb was designated for assignment in a corresponding move one day after serving up five runs in an inning of relief in an 18-4 loss to the Yankees. Stout's lone previous big-league experience came in 2018 as a member of the Royals, with whom he pitched 2.1 innings while giving up six earned runs. The 29-year-old turned in a 3.99 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 47:22 K:BB across 29.1 innings at Iowa this season.

    After becoming a free agent following the 2019 season, Stout had spent the last year and a half in the independent ranks before landing with the Marlins. He'll look to impress at Jacksonville with the hope of earning his first call-up to the big leagues since 2018.
