Phillip Diehl: Cut loose by Guardians
Diehl was released by the Guardians on Wednesday.
Diehl has spent all of 2023 at Triple-A Columbus, where he posted a 6.89 ERA and 35:20 K:BB over 32.2 innings. The lefty has had gaudy strikeout totals at times in the minors but has managed just a 9.47 ERA and 15:6 K:BB over 19 frames at the major-league level.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Phillip Diehl: Won't make Opening Day roster
Diehl was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Diehl signed as a non-roster invitee in February and didn't allow a run in four appearances during spring training, but he wasn't able to make Cleveland's Opening Day roster. The left-hander has a 9.47 ERA in 21 career big-league outings, and he's unlikely to be more than a low-leverage option should he see the majors this season.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Phillip Diehl: Lands NRI from Guardians
Diehl signed a minor-league contract with the Guardians on Tuesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Diehl has received an invitation to major-league spring training. The 28-year-old has seen action in 21 appearances at the big-league level across parts of three seasons, posting a 9.47 ERA. He'll give the Guardians some left-handed relief depth.... See More ... See Less
Phillip Diehl: Testing free agency
Diehl elected free agency Sunday.
Diehl made five relief appearances with the Reds earlier in 2022, but he never made it to the big leagues after May and was dealt to the Mets in July. Over his 16.1 innings at Triple-A Syracuse in the Mets organization, Diehl posted an 8.82 ERA and 1.99 WHIP.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Phillip Diehl: Dealt to Mets
Diehl and Tyler Naquin were traded from the Reds to the Mets on Thursday in exchange for Jose Acuna and Hector Rodriguez, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Diehl began the season pitching out of the big-league bullpen for Cincinnati but was designated for assignment after allowing seven earned runs across his first 5.2 innings. He has pitched with Triple-A Louisville since, but he may have the opportunity to work low-leverage innings with the Mets.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Phillip Diehl: Outrighted to Triple-A
Diehl cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Thursday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Diehl was designated for assignment by Cincinnati on Monday, but he'll remain in the organization after losing his spot on the 40-man roster. The 27-year-old has posted a 2.73 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in 62.2 innings over 66 appearances in Louisville over the last two seasons.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Phillip Diehl: Scrubbed from 40-man roster
The Reds designated Diehl for assignment Monday.
He'll end up losing his spot on both the Reds' 40-man roster and 26-man active roster with Cincinnati needing an opening on the latter for Luis Castillo (shoulder), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in advance of his start Monday against the Brewers. During his nearly two-week stint with the big club, Diehl appeared in five games out of the bullpen and gave up seven earned runs on eight hits and three walks over 5.2 innings.... See More ...

Reds' Phillip Diehl: Contract selected by Reds
Diehl's contract was selected by the Reds on Wednesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Diehl has made eight relief appearances at Triple-A Louisville this year, and he posted a 4.50 ERA and 0.75 WHIP in eight innings. He appeared in 16 games with the Rockies in 2019 and 2020 and recorded an 8.78 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 13.1 innings. The southpaw will likely serve as a low-leverage reliever for Cincinnati....

Reds' Phillip Diehl: Heads to minor-league camp
The Reds reassigned Diehl to minor-league camp Tuesday.
Diehl has made 16 career appearances in the majors, all of which came with the Rockies between the 2019 and 2020 seasons. He's back with the Reds organization for the second year in a row after he pitched exclusively with Triple-A Louisville in 2021. He was one of the affiliate's top bullpen arms, as he submitted a 2.47 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 71:12 K:BB across 54.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Phillip Diehl: Stays in organization
The Reds outrighted Diehl to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Diehl remains in the organization after he went unclaimed through waivers when the Reds designated him for assignment over the weekend. His lack of a 40-man roster spot will likely hurt the reliever's chances of surfacing with the big club at any point in the near future.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Phillip Diehl: DFA'd by Cincinnati
Diehl was designated for assignment by the Reds on Sunday.
The 26-year-old was claimed off waivers by the Reds in mid-May but was removed from the 40-man roster without appearing in the majors. Diehl made 16 appearances for the Rockies between 2019 and 2020, and he posted an 8.78 ERA over 13.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Phillip Diehl: Claimed by Reds
Diehl was claimed off waivers by the Reds on Wednesday.
Diehl was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Saturday, and he'll now report to the Reds' alternate training site. The southpaw allowed eight runs in 5.2 innings this spring and is unlikely to have a high-leverage role for his new team this year. Michael Lorenzen (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list to make room for Diehl on the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Phillip Diehl: Cast off 40-man roster
Diehl was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Saturday.
Diehl was sent to Triple-A Albuquerque ahead of the regular season after he allowed eight runs in 5.2 innings this spring. He'll now be removed from the 40-man roster to make room for infielder Alan Trejo, whose contract was selected by the Rockies in a corresponding move. Even if Diehl is claimed off waivers, he's unlikely to have a high-leverage role in the majors this year.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Phillip Diehl: Optioned to Triple-A
Diehl was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Monday.
Diehl was in the mix for a bullpen spot but didn't do much to state his case this spring, allowing eight runs in 5.2 innings of work. Those struggles are in line with his performances thus far in his 13.1-innings major-league career, as he owns an 8.78 ERA at the highest level. If he returns to the big leagues later this season, it will come in a low-leverage role.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Phillip Diehl: Struggles against Padres
Diehl allowed three runs on three hits and no walks while striking out one over one inning in Wednesday's spring win over the Padres.
Diehl put runners on first and second base to begin the fifth inning but forced a double play. However, he gave up a two-run home run in the frame to tie the game before ending the inning with a strikeout. The southpaw has been quite inconsistent over his first four Cactus League outings and has allowed eight runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four across 3.2 innings. However, Diehl will likely serve as a low-leverage reliever for Colorado to begin the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Phillip Diehl: Optioned to alternate camp
Diehl was optioned to the Rockies' alternate training site Tuesday.
Diehl had inconsistent results while pitching in lower-leverage situations with the Rockies, and he'll be sent to the team's alternate training site to make room for Kevin Pillar on the active roster. Diehl has made six appearances in the majors this year, posting a 10.50 ERA and 1.33 WHIP over six innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Phillip Diehl: Makes season debut Monday
Diehl allowed one run on one hit and no walks while striking out two over 1.1 innings in Monday's win against the Giants. He didn't factor into the decision.
Diehl made his season debut in the fourth inning of Monday's contest after Chi Chi Gonzalez struggled to limit run production to begin the game. The southpaw was clean for a full inning but gave up a solo home run to Alex Dickerson with one out in the fifth inning, resulting in his removal from the game. Despite Diehl's blemish during his relief appearance Monday, it's encouraging to see him take the mound. He wasn't needed over the team's first eight games this season and is likely to pitch mainly in low-leverage situations in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Phillip Diehl: Returns to team
Diehl (illness) will be back with the team when camp begins Saturday, Nick Groke of The Athletic reports.
Diehl tested positive for COVID-19 in late June, but he's now cleared the league's protocol and is back with the team along with fellow pitcher Ryan Castellani. As he is presumably asymptomatic, he could be ready for Opening Day given his availability for camp.... See More ... See Less
