  • Mariners' Gabe Speier: Recalled from Triple-A

    Speier was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma by Seattle on Saturday.

    Speier replaces Robbie Ray, as Ray was placed on the 15-day injured list with a left flexor strain. Speier will give the Mariners a left-handed option in the bullpen and likely work in low-leverage situations while with Seattle.

  • Mariners' Gabe Speier: Heading to Triple-A

    Speier was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    The left-hander was claimed off waivers by the Mariners in November and will debut for the organization at the Triple-A level. Speier had a 2.33 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB over 19.1 innings with Kansas City last year, so he could certainly work his way into Seattle's bullpen mix at some point in 2023.

  • Mariners' Gabe Speier: Solid results in spring

    Speier has a 4.76 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 8:0 K:BB across 5.2 innings over six Cactus League appearances.

    Speier's slightly elevated ERA is almost exclusively the byproduct of having allowed two earned runs on three hits across one inning against the Angels on Monday, as he's been highly effective otherwise. Speier has given up just an earned run on two hits over 4.2 frames in his other five Cactus League outings, a caliber of performance similar to that which produced the 2.00 ERA and 1.15 WHIP he generated in 27 innings over 24 appearances for the Royals between the 2021 and 2022 seasons.

  • Mariners' Gabe Speier: Nabbed by M's

    The Mariners claimed Speier off waivers from the Royals on Wednesday.

    Speier provides the Mariners with an extra left-handed option out of the bullpen heading into 2023, though he's likely to settle for a low-leverage role if he earns a spot on the Opening Day roster. He made 19 appearances for Kansas City in 2022, logging a 2.33 ERA and 1.09 WHIP while striking out 14 in 19.1 innings.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Returning to Triple-A

    The Royals optioned Speier to Triple-A Omaha following Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Speier is one of 10 players who will come off the 26-man active roster with Kansas City needing to clear room for the 10 players returning from the restricted list ahead of the team's next game Friday against the Rays. The 27-year-old lefty reliever went unused in Sunday's loss after being called up from Triple-A prior to the contest.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Called up from Triple-A

    The Royals recalled Speier from Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.

    Speier will be joining the Royals' 26-man active roster as a replacement for starting pitcher Brady Singer (personal), who was one of 10 Royals placed on the restricted list Thursday ahead of the team's four-game series in Toronto due to his vaccination status. Because Singer started Wednesday's contest, the Royals weren't able to immediately replace him on the roster until three days later. Speier will give the Royals a fresh left-handed arm out of the bullpen Sunday in the team's final game before the All-Star break.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Returns to minors

    Speier was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Speier returned from the COVID-19 injured list last week and will now head back to the minors. The left-hander has a 2.33 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB over 19.1 innings this season for the Royals, so it should only be a matter of time before he's back in the majors.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Activated Friday

    Speier was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday.

    He made one rehab assignment appearance June 15, tossing a scoreless inning with two strikeouts. Speier should work in lower-leverage situations.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Returns to action

    Speier walked one and struck out none in two-thirds of a scoreless inning Friday versus the Athletics.

    Speier had been on the COVID-19 injured list before he was activated Friday. The southpaw has now gone 4.1 scoreless innings across his last four appearances. He had started to earn the occasional chance for holds prior to his two-plus-week absence. He's posted a 2.41 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 15:5 K:BB in 18.2 innings overall while adding two holds and an 0-1 record in 16 outings.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Begins rehab assignment

    Speier (illness) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Tuesday.

    Speier has spent the past two weeks on the COVID-19 injured list. Given the relatively brief length of his absence, he may only need one or two rehab appearances before he's cleared to return.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Will need rehab assignment

    Speier (illness) will go out on a rehab assignment before he's activated from the COVID-19 injured list, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Speier, along with Matt Peacock and Amir Garrett, was part of the Royals' small virus outbreak in the bullpen. Since he'll need a rehab assignment, Speier is likely to be out for a little longer, though his presence in the clubhouse Tuesday indicates he has cleared the virus protocols and should be back in game action soon.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Placed on injured list

    Speier was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Monday.

    The Royals officially placed Speier on the IL without an injury designation, but that presumably means that he's sidelined due to the league's COVID-19 protocols. While it's not yet clear whether the southpaw has tested positive for the virus, he'll need to spend some time away from the team. Speier had been effective recently, striking out four in 3.2 scoreless innings over his last three appearances.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Falters in first loss

    Speier (0-1) took the loss Thursday versus the White Sox. He allowed a run on three hits and recorded only one out, a strikeout.

    Speier got into trouble when tasked with pitching the seventh inning. He allowed singles to three of the four batters he faced, with Adam Engel knocking in the go-ahead run for the White Sox. After 11.1 scoreless innings to start the season, Speier's experienced some regression with four runs allowed in his last two innings across three appearances. The southpaw still owns a 2.70 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 9:0 K:BB through 13.1 innings, but he'll need to settle back in after some shaky outings in the last week.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Pitches two clean innings

    Speier didn't allow a baserunner in two innings, striking out one in a no-decision Wednesday versus the Rangers.

    Wednesday's was a bullpen game for the Royals, and Speier got it started the right way before turning the ball over to Joel Payamps. Through eight outings, Speier has yet to allow a run or issue a walk. The southpaw has racked up eight strikeouts while allowing just three hits over 11.1 innings, though he's yet to record a decision, a save or a hold. His success as an opener Wednesday could lead to him seeing more time in that role later in the year if necessary.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Serving as opener Wednesday

    Speier is listed as the Royals' starting pitcher for Wednesday's game in Texas and is expected to serve as the opener in a bullpen day, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Speier has yet to allow a run over seven relief appearances this season but hasn't recorded more than six outs in any of those outings. The Royals are thus unlikely to keep him in the game more than one time through the order before turning the game over to their relief corps. Former starting pitcher Kris Bubic will be available out of the bullpen and hasn't been used since May 4, so he could be a logical candidate to pick up the bulk of the innings behind Speier.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Not seeing much work

    Speier allowed a hit in a scoreless inning during Thursday's 1-0 loss to the Twins.

    Thursday's outing was just the second appearance of the year for Speier. He's covered 2.2 scoreless innings, striking out three and allowing only two hits. The 27-year-old southpaw made just 24 major-league appearances across the previous three seasons. He'll likely continue to serve as a middle-innings option while with the Royals, though it's unclear if he'll stay in the big leagues when rosters go from 28 to 26 players May 2.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Earns roster spot

    Speier was awarded a spot on the Opening Day roster, Anne Rogers of reports.

    Speier finished 2021 well with a 1.17 ERA and 1.30 WHIP across 7.2 innings after spending the bulk of the season with Triple-A Omaha. The southpaw saw mainly low-leverage work, and with plenty of bullpen arms ahead of him, Speier should expect to see most of his time in the middle innings in 2022.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Solid since call-up

    Speier has allowed three runs (one earned) in seven innings since he was promoted from Triple-A Omaha.

    The 26-year-old has been a little unlucky with errors, and his 1.29 WHIP is nothing to write home about, but he's been able to limit the damage in a small sample. Speier has covered 20 innings across three big-league seasons, so he shouldn't be expected to see more than a low-leverage relief role entering next season.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Contract selected by Kansas City

    Speier had his contract selected by the Royals on Wednesday.

    Speier will receive his first look in the majors this season after posting a 2.98 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 57:9 K:BB over 45.1 innings for Triple-A Omaha. The 26-year-old appeared in 17 games for the Royals over the previous two seasons and surrendered 11 runs across 13 innings.

  • Royals' Gabe Speier: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Speier cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.

    Speier was designated for assignment by the Royals on Friday, and he'll remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The southpaw has made 17 relief appearances over the last two seasons, posting a 7.62 ERA and 1.85 WHIP over 13 innings.
