Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Scott Strickland from Triple-A New Orleans.

He'll take the place of the injured Clay Hensley on the 25-man roster. Strickland, 34, was 3-0 with a 1.72 ERA and eight saves in 14 relief appearances for the Zephyrs this season. Signed to a minor league contract last December, Strickland hasn't pitched in the major leagues since the 2005 season with the Astros.

Marlins signed RHP Scott Strickland to a minor league contract.

Strickland has also been invited to spring training. The 33-year-old hasn't pitched in the majors since 2005, but managed a 2.98 ERA in 48 1/3 innings at Triple-A Albuquerque this past year.

Dodgers signed RHP Scott Strickland to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.

Strickland performed fairly well at Triple-A for the Yankees last season, but hasn't pitched in the majors since 2005 and is now 33 years old. He hasn't been the same since undergoing Tommy John surgery in mid-2003.

The Padres are hoping to re-sign Scott Strickland to a minor league contract once he clears release waivers.

"He has a couple of other clubs that might be interested, so we'll see," GM Kevin Towers said. The Padres should know tomorrow.

The Padres intend to release Scott Strickland, who was signed to a partially guaranteed $550,000 contract in October.

Strickland had a 3.38 ERA and a 9/4 K/BB ratio in 10 2/3 innings this spring. It wasn't quite good enough for the Padres, but he'd be an upgrade for several bullpens around baseball.

Padres signed RHP Scott Strickland, who had been with the Pirates, to a one-year, $550,000 contract.

Strickland finished with 2.09 ERA and a 70/15 K/BB ratio in 73 1/3 innings for Triple-A Indianapolis this year, but the Pirates never gave him an opportunity. He's pitched a total of four innings in the majors since undergoing Tommy John surgery in mid-2003, those coming with the Astros in Sept. 2005. He could be a fine middle reliever while making little more than the minimum. Signings like this one show why it's not any sort of a fluke that the Padres continue to put together quality bullpens.

Scott Strickland got four outs for Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday and still hasn't allowed a run in 24 innings this season.

He's given up 14 hits, walked five and struck out 27. If the Pirates still don't want to give him a chance, maybe it's time they let him go elsewhere. Strickland should be in some club's bullpen right now.

Scott Strickland was perfect for three innings against the Reds today. He struck out three.

Maybe Strickland is finally all the way back 2 1/2 years after Tommy John surgery. He's yet to allow a hit over five innings this spring. If he keeps it up, he should secure a place in Pittsburgh's pen.

Pirates signed RHP Scott Strickland to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.

He'll earn $650,000 with a chance to make $150,000 in bonuses if he earns a spot in Pittsburgh's pen. Strickland has struggled to come back from Tommy John surgery, but maybe he'll be closer to 100 percent next season. At the price of a minor league contract, he's a nice pickup.

Astros sent RHP Scott Strickland outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

Strickland allowed three runs in four innings after being called up on Sept. 3. If his velocity continues to return in his second year back from Tommy John surgery, he could help some club next season. Since he'll probably have to settle for a minor league deal, he'll be a smart signing.
Mon, Oct 10, 2005 11:20:00 PM

Astros purchased the contract of RHP Scott Strickland from Triple-A Round Rock.

Strickland, back in the majors for the first time since 2003, had a 2.37 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 19 innings of relief for the Express. He should be of some use in middle relief.

Triple-A Round Rock's Scott Strickland was perfect for two innings to earn a win in relief on Friday.

Strickland is making a case for a September callup. He's allowed five runs and has a 19/2 K/BB ratio in 17 innings for the Express.
Sat, Aug 27, 2005 04:07:00 PM

Scott Strickland pitched 1 2/3 hitless innings for Triple-A Round Rock yesterday.

Strickland has fanned nine and allowed two hits in 6 2/3 innings since joining Round Rock. He might claim a spot in Houston's pen later this month.
Sat, Aug 6, 2005 02:30:00 PM

Scott Strickland had his contract voided by the Astros yesterday.

He arrived to the Mets minor leagues with elbow discomfort and was unable to pitch. He's now a free agent.
