  • Phillies' Kaleb Ort: Jettisoned from 40-man roster

    Ort was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Monday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Philadelphia needed to clear a spot on its 40-man roster as its contract with Whit Merrifield became official. Ort was claimed off waivers just last week and now could be on the move again. He held an ugly 6.26 ERA over 23 innings in 2023.

  • Phillies' Kaleb Ort: Claimed by Philadelphia

    Ort was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on Tuesday.

    The 32-year-old was designated for assignment by the Marlins last week and will now join his fourth team of the offseason. Ort made 21 appearances for the Red Sox last season and had a 6.26 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 24:9 K:BB across 23 innings.

  • Marlins' Kaleb Ort: Designated for assignment

    Ort was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Wednesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    He's being swapped out in favor of another reliever, Declan Cronin, who was claimed off waivers. Ort himself was a waiver claim by the Marlins earlier this offseason and now could be on the move again.

  • Marlins' Kaleb Ort: Claimed by Miami

    Miami claimed Ort (elbow) off waivers from the Mariners on Friday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports.

    Ort gave up 19 runs -- 16 earned -- over 23 major-league innings this past season, but he has always excelled in the minors and could perhaps find a spot in the Marlins' Opening Day bullpen if his health cooperates. The 31-year-old battled elbow trouble down the stretch in 2023.

  • Mariners' Kaleb Ort: Claimed by Mariners

    The Mariners claimed Ort (elbow) off waivers from Boston on Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Ort struggled to a 6.26 ERA and 1.57 WHIP through 23 innings in the majors in 2023, and his season was cut short by an elbow injury in early July. The 31-year-old righty likely won't have a significant role should he crack the Mariners' bullpen.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Placed on outright waivers

    Ort (elbow) was placed on outright waivers Wednesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Ort struggled to a 6.26 ERA over 23 innings for the Red Sox this season and finished the year on the injured list because of nagging elbow inflammation. The 31-year-old right-hander holds a career 6.27 ERA in 47 total major-league appearances and seems likely to pass through waivers unclaimed.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Starts up rehab assignment

    Ort (elbow) began a rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Worcester, striking out one batter over a perfect inning of relief.

    Ort has resided on the injured list since July 7 with right elbow inflammation, but he looks like he'll have a chance to rejoin the Boston bullpen before the regular season comes to a close. Prior to being shut down with the injury, Ort posted a 6.26 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 23 innings. If reinstated, Ort will likely be relegated to low-leverage work out of the bullpen.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Moved to 60-day IL

    The Red Sox transferred Ort (elbow) to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Ort was initially placed on the injured list July 7 due to right elbow inflammation, and he'll now remain out through the beginning of September. His transfer clears a 40-man spot for Mauricio Llovera, who was acquired in a trade with San Francisco on Wednesday.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Placed on injured list

    The Red Sox placed Ort on the 15-day injured list Friday with right elbow inflammation, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Ort's placement on the IL frees up a spot for James Paxton to return from paternity leave. Ort holds a 6.26 ERA and 1.57 WHIP through 23 innings this season and will be eligible to return July 22.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Likely to serve as opener Wednesday

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said after Tuesday's loss to the Marlins that Ort will likely be the team's opening pitcher for Wednesday's game versus Miami, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Ort worked as the opener June 19 for the Red Sox, and he went 2.1 innings against the Yankees while allowing two runs in the first game of a doubleheader. The right-hander will likely get a chance to go through the Miami lineup one time before giving way to the rest of the Boston bullpen, so he doesn't project to have a chance at qualifying for a win.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Exits in third as opener

    Ort allowed two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out four over 2.1 innings as the opener in Boston's 6-2 win over the Yankees in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader.

    Ort allowed a couple of hard-hit balls, including a two-run home run, in the first inning then settled down and managed to give the Red Sox seven outs on 32 pitches. The reliever was called up to open Sunday's matinee after Saturday's game was rained out. He took the roster spot of Tanner Houck (face), who was placed on the 15-day injured list, but it's unclear if Ort will remain in Boston.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Promoted, opening Game 1

    Ort was recalled from Triple-A Worcester and will start Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    The 31-year-old was sent to Worcester in early June but will rejoin the big club Sunday with Tanner Houck (face) landing on the injured list. Ort hasn't covered more than two frames in any outing this year, so he'll likely exit after working an inning or two in Sunday's matinee. Nick Pivetta could follow as Boston's primary pitcher.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Sent to Triple-A

    Ort was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Ort tossed a scoreless inning Monday against the Rays and will now head to the minors to make room for Chris Murphy. Ort owns a 5.87 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with a 16:7 K:BB over 15.1 frames so far this season.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Recalled from Triple-A

    Boston recalled Ort from Triple-A Worcester on Sunday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Ort will give the Red Sox a fresh arm in the bullpen, with Ryan Sherriff heading to Triple-A in the corresponding transaction. In his 12 appearances with Boston thus far, Ort has struggled with a 7.30 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over 12.1 innings.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Sent to Triple-A

    Ort was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    He was recalled Friday and didn't get into a game before being sent back to the minors. Zack Littell, who was acquired from Texas, takes Ort's spot in the bullpen.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Back in majors

    Ort was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Ort will rejoin the Red Sox's bullpen as a result of Kutter Crawford (hamstring) landing on the 15-day injured list Friday. Ort has struggled in 12 major-league appearances this season, holding a 7.30 ERA and 1.78 WHIP across 12.1 frames.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Goes back to Triple-A

    Boston optioned Ort to Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Ort has struggled to a 7.30 ERA over 12.1 innings with a 12:6 K:BB over 12 appearances. The right-hander will move down to Triple-A to make room for Chris Martin (shoulder), who was reinstated from the 15-day injured list ahead of Sunday's game against the Guardians.

  • Red Sox's Kaleb Ort: Faulty support

    Ort allowed two runs on two hits while striking out one over one inning during Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Ort was partially victimized by shoddy fielding. He allowed a leadoff double to Jason Delay, who eventually scored on a sacrifice fly that wouldn't have happened without the fielding miscues. In between, there was a poor decision by first baseman Triston Casas, and another one by outfielder Masataka Yoshida which was compounded by third baseman Rafael Devers failing to cut off a misguided throw to plate. Ort's allowed four runs over five innings for a 7.20 ERA, which is an improvement on his spring ERA of 9.58.
