Padres designated LHP Jason Lane for assignment.

Lane tossed six-plus innings of one-run ball in his first major league start Monday afternoon against the Braves, but he didn't figure into the San Diego rotation going forward. The former outfielder could draw interest on waivers as a left-handed reliever.
Jul 29 - 4:08 PM

Jason Lane allowed just one run over six-plus innings but took the loss Monday against the Braves.

The one run he allowed was on an Evan Gattis solo shot that led off the bottom of the seventh inning. And that was enough for Atlanta on a day that the San Diego offense managed just five total hits and zero runs. Lane was sharp in his first major league start, striking out two Braves hitters and issuing no walks. He could get another turn in the Padres' rotation soon.
Jul 28 - 2:48 PM

Padres recalled LHP Jason Lane from Triple-A El Paso.

Lane will make a spot start for the Padres on Monday afternoon against the Braves. The former outfielder tossed 4 1/3 scoreless innings of relief for San Diego earlier this season, but he is not a good fantasy option.
Jul 28 - 10:40 AM

Jason Lane will be called up to start on Monday against the Braves.

It's expected to just be a spot start, as the anticipation is that Ian Kennedy (oblique) will only miss one turn. A former outfielder, Lane struck out four in 4 1/3 scoreless relief innings with the Padres earlier this season. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Jul 27 - 3:14 PM

Padres sent LHP Jason Lane outright to Triple-A El Paso.

Lane cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Padres over the weekend. The 37-year-old converted outfielder has accepted an assignment to Triple-A and will stick around as bullpen depth.
Jun 10 - 2:49 PM

Padres designated LHP Jason Lane for assignment.

It's an abrupt end for the 37-year-old, who was a feel-good story after resurrecting his career as a reliever. Lane struck out four in 4 1/3 scoreless innings with the Padres. He was DFA'd to make room on the roster for Andrew Cashner.
Jun 7 - 6:22 PM

Padres purchased the contract of LHP Jason Lane from Triple-A El Paso.

Lane last appeared in the majors in 2007 as an outfielder. He has since converted to relief pitching and was sporting a 4.36 ERA in 64 innings this season at the Triple-A level. San Diego will likely use Lane in middle relief, though he could also pinch-hit.
Jun 3 - 5:40 PM

Padres re-signed LHP Jason Lane to a minor league contract.

Lane, best known for his time as an outfielder with the Astros and Padres, has been a full-time pitcher over the past two seasons. He began 2013 with the independent Sugar Land Skeeters before posting a 5.24 ERA and 33/6 K/BB ratio over 46 1/3 innings in six starts and five relief appearances with the Padres' Triple-A affiliate. Lane turns 37 later this month and figures to serve as organizational depth in 2014.

Padres signed LHP Jason Lane to a minor league contract.

Lane, 36, transitioned from an outfielder to a reliever last season and has been assigned to Triple-A Tucson. He hasn't appeared in the major leagues since 2007 and will serve as organizational depth.

Twins signed LHP Jason Lane to a minor league contract.

The 35-year-old transitioned from an outfielder to a reliever this past spring. The early returns weren't great, but the Twins will hope he eventually figures it out.

Diamondbacks released LHP Jason Lane.

Lane, who previously played with the Astros and Padres as an outfielder, signed with the D-Backs this offseason as a pitcher. However, the 35-year-old was given the boot after posting a 7.59 ERA and 18/6 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings over 15 relief appearances with Triple-A Reno.

Diamondbacks signed LHP Jason Lane to a minor league contract.

Lane has played in the big leagues with the Astros and Padres as an outfielder, but the D-Backs are bringing him to camp as a pitcher. The 34-year-old posted a 4.85 ERA and 12/2 K/BB ratio over 13 innings in six relief appearances with Triple-A Las Vegas in the Blue Jays' organization this past season. He's a longshot to crack Arizona's roster, but it should be an interesting experiment to monitor.

Marlins signed OF Jason Lane to a minor league contract.

Lane should provide the Marlins some organizational depth in the minor leagues. He split 2008 between the Yankees and Red Sox farm systems and in 2009 batted .253 with an .810 OPS for the Blue Jays’ Triple-A team after failing to make the team in spring training.

Blue Jays reassigned OF Jason Lane, INF/OF Russ Adams, INF Brad Emaus, INF Scott Campbell and RHP Dirk Hayhurst to minor league camp; optioned RHP Brian Wolfe to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Lane and Emaus were the Jays' home run and RBI leaders this spring, with Lane hitting .358 with five homers and Emaus batting .3333 with four homers and 13 RBI. Still, Emaus was never a candidate to make the team and the Jays decided against going with Lane over Kevin Millar. Maybe someone else will step up and grab Lane before the season starts.
