Padres transferred LHP Troy Patton from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move cleared a spot on the 40-man roster for Brooks Conrad. Patton doesn't have any structural damage in his shoulder but is in for a long rest and rehab.
Jul 4 - 8:35 AM

Troy Patton will rest and rehab his left shoulder after getting a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.

Patton doesn't have any structural damage, but it's not clear how long it will be before he's cleared to resume throwing. The lefty allowed two runs in his first 7 1/3 innings for the Padres before going on the DL last month.
Jul 1 - 10:31 PM

Padres placed LHP Troy Patton on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder soreness.

The 28-year-old southpaw has pitched well since coming over from the Orioles, allowing just two runs in his first 7 1/3 innings (2.45 ERA) while posting a 1.09 WHIP and 8/1 K/BB ratio. The hope is that he'll need only a minimum stint on the DL and will rejoin the Padres bullpen in late June.
Jun 14 - 1:16 PM

Padres acquired LHP Troy Patton from the Orioles in exchange for C Nick Hundley and cash considerations.

The 28-year-old reliever appeared in just nine games for the O's this season, posting an 8.10 ERA, 1.95 WHIP and 5/4 K/BB ratio over 6 2/4 innings. He missed the first 25 games of the season due to a suspension for using Adderall. He has proven to be a very reliable bullpen piece in the past though, and should make for a nice addition for the Padres.
May 24 - 12:31 PM

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the Orioles are shopping left-hander Troy Patton.

And they're looking for a catcher in return. Patton opened the 2014 season on a 25-game suspension for unprescribed Adderall use but he owns a solid 3.08 ERA and 1.175 WHIP over his last 114 innings of relief and should be drawing quite a bit of interest on the trade market.
May 10 - 7:00 PM

Orioles reinstated LHP Troy Patton from the restricted list.

Patton has served his 25-game suspension for Adderall and is now back in the Baltimore bullpen. He holds a 3.04 ERA over the last three-plus years for the O's and will be a welcomed addition in middle relief.
May 1 - 7:56 PM

Troy Patton will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

The veteran reliever was suspended for the first 25 games of the regular season after testing positive for Adderall. He saw very little work in spring training, and will round himself into shape at the Triple-A level before returning to the O's bullpen.
Apr 20 - 5:46 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter indicated Saturday that Troy Patton will likely see his innings limited during spring training.

Patton has been suspended for the first 25 games of the regular season after he tested positive for Adderall. While he'll be in spring camp with the team, Showalter said it will be hard to give valuable innings to a guy who won't be able to pitch in the big leagues until April.
Feb 1 - 1:33 PM

Orioles avoided arbitration with LHP Troy Patton by agreeing to a one-year contract.

The financials of the deal are not yet known. Patton has put up a 3.05 across 130 appearances over the last three seasons. He'll miss the first 25 games of this season after testing positive for amphetamines.
Jan 17 - 10:47 AM

Major League Baseball has suspended Troy Patton for 25 games for testing positive for amphetamines.

He'll serve the suspension at the beginning of next season. It's a blow to the Orioles' left-handed relief corps, as Patton boasts a 3.05 across 130 appearances over the last three seasons. The O's will still have Brian Matusz and T.J. McFarland as southpaw options for the 'pen.

Troy Patton holds a 4.05 ERA over 18 appearances.

The left-hander put up a 2.43 ERA over 54 appearances last season in his first full year in the majors. His encore isn't going as smoothly due to an increased rate of walks (more than double what it was last season) and decreased strikeouts (he's punching out 3.4 less batters per nine innings). Being increasingly hittable doesn't help either. After a 1.02 WHIP in 2012, Patton sits at 1.55 today.

Orioles avoided arbitration with LHP Troy Patton by agreeing to a one-year, $815,000 contract.

He can earn more through incentives. Patton was a first-time arbitration-eligible player as a Super 2 qualifier. The left-hander put up a 2.43 ERA over 54 appearances last season in his first full year. He'll set up again from the left side in 2013.

Orioles activated LHP Troy Patton from the 15-day disabled list.

Patton has been sidelined for the past month because of a sprained ankle. The lefty will return to being one of Buck Showalter's primary left-handed weapons out of the pen.
Fri, Sep 21, 2012 02:33:00 PM

Troy Patton (ankle) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday.

Patton appeared in an instructional league game over the weekend with no problems. He's been sidelined for the past month because of a sprained ankle.
