Top Joel Payamps News

  • Athletics' Joel Payamps: Lands on IL

    Payamps was placed on the 15-day injured list with a strained lumbar muscle Friday.

    Payamps had inconsistent results in September, posting a 5.19 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 8.2 innings over eight appearances. Although he tossed a scoreless inning Tuesday against the Mariners, he's apparently dealing with a back issue that will force him to miss the remainder of the regular season. The right-hander made a career-high 41 relief appearances between Kansas City and Oakland this year and generated a 3.23 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 55.2 innings.

  • Athletics' Joel Payamps: Another loss Thursday

    Payamps (3-6) took the loss against the Astros on Thursday, allowing two earned runs on two hits over one-third of an inning.

    The right-hander faltered for the second time in as many appearances, with his trouble coming when he allowed an infield single to Jeremy Pena and a two-run home run to Aledmys Diaz immediately thereafter. The blast snapped a 2-2 tie and the Athletics were unable to come back from the deficit, handing Payamps his second loss in as many appearances and third in the last five trips to the mound overall.

  • Athletics' Joel Payamps: Charged with fifth loss Tuesday

    Payamps (3-5) took the loss against the Rangers on Tuesday, allowing a game-winning solo home run over one-third of an inning.

    Payamps' blink-and-you-missed-it ninth-inning appearance began with a Marcus Semien pop fly but quickly ended when he served up a 395-foot solo shot to Mark Mathias to snap a 7-7 tie and send the Rangers home winners. Payamps' stumble notwithstanding, the right-hander has been mostly reliable since joining the Athletics off waivers Aug. 20, posting a 2.31 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and two holds across 10 appearances.

  • Athletics' Joel Payamps: Takes fourth loss Tuesday

    Payamps (3-4) was charged with a loss against Atlanta on Tuesday, allowing one earned run on two hits over one inning.

    Payamps didn't exactly come into the ideal scenario when entering in the game in the fifth inning, as he inherited a two-on, two-out jam from starter Cole Irvin. Payamps surrendered a two-run single to the first batter he faced, Marcell Ozuna, before getting Robbie Grossman on an inning-ending flyout. Payamps had generated six scoreless appearances in the seven outings prior to Tuesday's stumble, and he still sports a 3.00 ERA across 51 innings over 36 appearances between Kansas City and Oakland this season.

  • Athletics' Joel Payamps: Earns first hold

    Payamps (calf) retired the only batter he faced on a groundout to earn a hold in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Yankees.

    Payamps has pitched twice since suffering a calf bruise in Thursday's game. He's made four scoreless appearances spanning 4.1 innings since he was claimed off waivers from Kansas City. In that stretch, he's given up four hits, struck out three and earned one win. Payamps has a 2.87 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 36:16 K:BB through 47 innings across 33 appearances between the A's and the Royals this year, mainly as a low-leverage option.

  • Athletics' Joel Payamps: Suffers calf bruise

    Payamps was diagnosed with a left calf contusion after leaving Thursday's game against the Yankees, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Payamps exited Thursday's contest after being struck by a comebacker and being helped off the field, and it's unclear if he'll be available for the rest of the series versus New York this weekend. It was the 27-year-old's second appearance for Oakland after being claimed off waivers from the Kansas City last week.

  • Athletics' Joel Payamps: Hurt by comebacker

    Payamps was hit by a comebacker in his leg and had to be helped off the field Thursday against the Yankees, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Payamps completed an inning of work in the midst of a 13-4 deficit prior to being forced to exit. It's unclear whether the injury will force Payamps to the injured list.

  • Athletics' Joel Payamps: Debuts with multi-inning effort

    Payamps, just activated Monday after being claimed off waivers Saturday, fired two scoreless innings during which he allowed two hits and recorded two strikeouts in a loss to the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Payamps labored some, needing a total of 39 pitches to record his six outs. The 28-year-old is highly capable of handling multi-inning assignments such as Tuesday's on a regular basis, having averaged well over one frame per relief appearance during his 29 outings with the Royals prior to his release.

  • Athletics' Joel Payamps: Joins major-league roster

    Payamps was activated by the Athletics on Monday.

    Payamps was claimed off waivers by Oakland on Saturday, and he'll join the major-league roster after Austin Pruitt was designated for assignment Monday. Payamps made 29 relief appearances for the Royals earlier in the season and posted a 3.16 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 42.2 innings.

  • Athletics' Joel Payamps: Claimed by A's

    Payamps was claimed off waivers by the A's on Saturday.

    He was designated for assignment by the Royals a couple days ago, but the A's had a spot for him on the 40-man roster. Payamps should report to the Triple-A bullpen for now. He has a 3.16 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 33 strikeouts in 42.2 innings in the majors this year.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: DFA'd by Kansas City

    Payamps was designated for assignment by the Royals on Thursday.

    Payamps was reinstated from the bereavement list Wednesday but has now lost his spot on the 40-man roster. The 28-year-old has a 3.16 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 33:16 K:BB across 42.2 innings this year.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Reinstated from bereavement list

    Payamps was reinstated from the bereavement list Wednesday.

    Payamps had been away from the team since Saturday while tending to a personal matter, but he'll be available out of the bullpen for Wednesday's series finale in Minnesota. He's made five appearances since the All-Star break, posting a 3.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in nine innings.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Away on bereavement leave

    Payamps was placed on the bereavement list Saturday.

    Players may spend between three and seven days on the bereavement list, meaning Payamps should return between Tuesday and next Saturday. Carlos Hernandez will take his place in the bullpen.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Takes loss Saturday

    Payamps (2-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits without recording an out, taking the extra-inning loss Saturday versus the Blue Jays.

    Payamps allowed a leadoff double to Vladimir Guerrero and three straight singles after that to let a two-run lead slip away. In five appearances in July, Payamps has struggled with a 7.94 ERA and 1.94 WHIP, though he's managed a 5:0 K:BB across 5.2 innings in that span. He has a 3.41 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB in 31.2 innings overall, most often serving in low-leverage situations.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Handed loss in return

    Payamps (2-2) allowed two runs on two hits and struck out two over 1.1 innings, taking the loss Saturday versus the Tigers.

    Payamps pitched the eighth inning and stayed in the contest, giving him a chance at a two-inning save. That backfired when he allowed back-to-back solo shots to Victor Reyes and Riley Greene, the latter being a walkoff homer. It was a rude welcome back for Payamps after he spent nearly three weeks on the COVID-19 injured list. The 28-year-old has a 2.96 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 21:11 K:BB through 27.1 innings this year, pitching mainly in a low-leverage role. The homers he allowed Saturday were the first two he's given up all year after yielding six long balls in 50.1 innings last season.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Reinstated from injured list

    Payamps (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.

    Payamps landed on the COVID-19 IL on June 13, but he spent the last week on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Omaha. He posted a 6.23 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 4.1 innings over three minor-league appearances and will rejoin the Royals' bullpen after right-hander Daniel Mengden was outrighted to Omaha on Saturday.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Begins rehab assignment

    Payamps (illness) began a rehab assignment Friday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Payamps has been on the COVID-19 injured list for the last 12 days. Given the relatively brief length of his absence and the fact that he doesn't have to work up to a large pitch count as a reliever, it's possible he's activated after just one or two rehab outings.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Placed on injured list

    Payamps was placed on the COVID-19 injured list for an undisclosed reason Monday.

    Payamps was officially placed on the IL with no injury designation, but that usually means that a player is on the COVID-19 IL. Assuming that's the case, the right-hander will be eligible to return to action as soon as he clears the league's health and safety protocols. Right-hander Daniel Mengden's contract was selected Monday to provide additional bullpen depth.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Earns win in return

    Payamps (2-1) allowed a walk over 1.1 scoreless innings Thursday, earning the win versus the Orioles.

    Payamps left Monday's game after getting struck by a line drive on his lower body and didn't pitch Tuesday or Wednesday. He was effective in his return, escaping a jam created by Kris Bubic and Collin Snider in the fifth inning before pitching a clean sixth. Outside of a messy outing May 27 (four runs in two-thirds of an inning), Payamps has been solid as a low-leverage option for the Royals. He has a 2.63 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB through 24 innings, and he's yet to allow a home run this season. His 3.8 BB/9 mark is too high, but his 3.02 FIP suggests regression wouldn't have a drastic impact on his numbers.

  • Royals' Joel Payamps: Gets drilled by liner

    Payamps left Monday's game against the Blue Jays after being struck by a line drive back up the middle, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Payamps was able to record the out after being struck, but he was then forced to exit the contest after being looked at briefly by the team trainer. He'll be considered day-to-day until the nature of the injury is disclosed.
