Chad Gaudin (arm) will begin the season in extended spring training.

Gaudin has been shut down with a nerve injury in his neck that's caused his fingers to tingle. In addition to the neck injury, he also has been battling arm soreness. He'll continue to rest in Arizona until doctors clear him for baseball activities.

The Dodgers have shut down Chad Gaudin (arm) for the time being and are awaiting his MRI results.

The veteran right-hander has dealt with a variety of ailments in spring camp, including a tweak in his throwing arm and tingling in his fingers due to nerve issues in his neck. He will remain shut down until the team can determine the cause of his ailments.

Chad Gaudin will be examined after feeling tingling in his fingers due to the ongoing nerve issues in his neck.

Gaudin had surgery a couple years ago but has never been able to totally shake the nerve problems, as this is the second time in the last week he's had issues. He's been shut down and will be sent for an exam before the next course of action is determined.

Chad Gaudin said he's alright after feeling "a little tweak" in his upper right arm Saturday.

Gaudin was removed from his Saturday start in the third inning due to the injury, but it appears to be a false alarm. The right-hander has been given a window of opportunity to win a starting job with the Dodgers with Hyun-Jin Ryu set to begin the season on the disabled list. He's likely to take his next turn.

Chad Gaudin left his Cactus League start Sunday with an undisclosed injury.

Gaudin had dealt for two innings before getting hit hard in the third. Ultimately, catcher A.J. Ellis came out and called for the trainer. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly opted to remove Gaudin, and the Dodgers should provide an update on his injury shortly.
Mar 21 - 5:06 PM

Dodgers signed RHP Chad Gaudin to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Gaudin, who turns 32 next month, didn't pitch in 2014 due to a neck injury. However, he had a 3.06 ERA with 88 strikeouts over 97 innings with the Giants in 2013, so the Dodgers are willing to take a chance on him.

Chad Gaudin threw a bullpen session for the Diamondbacks last week.

General manager Dave Stewart said that the club is considering signing the veteran righty. Gaudin, who didn't pitch in 2014 due to a neck injury, would only require a minor league deal and could serve in a swingman role. He held a 3.06 ERA with 88 strikeouts across 97 innings in such a role for the Giants in 2013.
Feb 15 - 9:32 AM

Phillies released RHP Chad Gaudin.

Gaudin signed a minor league contract with the Phillies in late January, but he failed his physical this week in camp and is now back on the open market. The 30-year-old right-hander posted a cool 3.06 ERA and 88 strikeouts in 97 innings last season for the Giants and should land another opportunity soon. Unless, of course, there's something seriously wrong with his throwing arm.

Chad Gaudin will receive a salary of $750,000 if he makes the major league roster with the Phillies.

Gaudin signed a minor league deal with the Phillies on Tuesday. The 30-year-old had a surprisingly 3.06 ERA and 88 strikeouts in 97 innings with the Giants last season and should have a legitimate chance to make the Opening Day roster as a swingman.

Phillies signed RHP Chad Gaudin to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Gaudin, 30, had a 3.06 ERA and 88/40 K/BB ratio in 97 innings last season with the Giants. With his ability to start or relieve, he could win a job in a swingman role.
Tue, Jan 21, 2014 10:22:00 AM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that about six teams are in the mix to sign Chad Gaudin.

Cotillo adds that Gaudin is expected to make a decision soon. The 30-year-old posted a 3.06 ERA and 88/40 K/BB ratio in 97 innings with the Giants last season and could have value as a starter or a reliever.
Mon, Jan 20, 2014 05:22:00 PM

Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Astros are one of six teams with interest in free agent right-hander Chad Gaudin.

Gaudin is surely looking for a place to start, but Drellich speculates that he could fit as a second experienced reliever along with Chad Qualls. The 30-year-old posted a 3.06 ERA and 88/40 K/BB ratio in 97 innings with the Giants this past season as a starter and reliever.
Tue, Dec 10, 2013 03:40:00 PM

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that it "seems unlikely" the Giants will re-sign Chad Gaudin.

Gaudin pitched surprisingly well for the Giants in 2013, posting a 3.06 ERA with nearly a strikeout per inning across 30 appearances (12 starts). The veteran righty should get a guaranteed deal somewhere but might have to go back to the bullpen.
Mon, Dec 9, 2013 08:26:00 PM

Chad Gaudin (carpal tunnel syndrome) is unlikely to return to the Giants this season.

The veteran right-hander had hoped to rejoin the Giants bullpen for the final week of the regular season to prove his health before heading into free agency, but has yet to gain clearance to return and is quickly running out of time to do so.
