Date:

Royals purchased the contract of RHP Peter Moylan from Triple-A Omaha.

Moylan earned a spot with a 2.70 ERA over 10 relief appearances this spring. The side-armer should be a weapon against righties this season.
Apr 2 - 11:38 AM

Royals re-signed RHP Peter Moylan to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Moylan put up a 3.43 ERA across 50 relief appearances for Kansas City last season. The 38-year-old sidearmer will compete for a spot in the Royals' bullpen.
Feb 17 - 3:52 PM

Royals recalled RHP Peter Moylan from Triple-A Omaha.

Moylan saw 7 1/3 innings with the Royals earlier this season, allowing two runs in that space while striking out seven. He doesn't figure to see high-leverage work with the Royals and should not be considered a legitimate fantasy option.

Royals optioned RHP Peter Moylan to Triple-A Omaha.

Moylan holds a 2.45 ERA on the season but had been scored upon in two out of his last three appearances. He'll surely get another shot at some point.

Royals purchased the contract of RHP Peter Moylan from Triple-A Omaha.

Moylan earned the promotion by posting a 0.71 ERA over 12 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level. The veteran right-hander will pitch in a middle relief role for the Royals.

Royals re-signed RHP Peter Moylan to a minor league contract.

Moylan was released by Kansas City on Monday night but is now back with the organization as down-chart bullpen depth. The veteran right-hander posted a 3.48 ERA in 22 appearances last season for the Braves after returning from his second career Tommy John surgery. He'll head to Triple-A Omaha initially.
Wed, Mar 30, 2016 05:30:00 PM

Royals released RHP Peter Moylan.

Moylan, a non-roster invitee, gave up eight runs over 10 innings of work during Cactus League action. The 37-year-old made it back from a second Tommy John surgery to post a 3.48 ERA over 22 relief appearances with the Braves last season. He'll try to keep his career alive elsewhere.

Royals signed RHP Peter Moylan to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Moylan held a 3.48 ERA over 22 relief appearances for the Braves last season after making it back from a second Tommy John surgery. He's probably not going to crack the Opening Day roster but is a nice depth guy.

Braves purchased the contract of RHP Peter Moylan from Triple-A Gwinnett.

Working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery, Moylan has earned another chance after holding a 3.14 ERA and 24/9 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 relief innings for Gwinnett. The submariner hasn't appeared in the majors since September of 2013.
Sun, Aug 16, 2015 10:59:00 AM

Braves signed RHP Peter Moylan to a minor league contract.

Moylan is working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery and could be ready for game action by late April/early May, according to Zach Links of MLBTradeRumors.com. The submariner has a career 2.80 ERA, but he's 36 and the track record for pitchers return from two Tommy John surgeries isn't good.

Peter Moylan (elbow) said Friday that he's doing "fantastic" in his recovery from Tommy John surgery.

"I’m doing fantastic, mate. Dropped 35 pounds." said Moylan. "My goal is to be 100 percent by end of spring. Ball is coming out great, though. Probably have to throw for some teams right around the start of spring to gauge interest, but there have already been some nibbles, which is encouraging." Moylan said he's still mulling whether to sign a deal soon or wait to sign until after the season gets underway. His career ERA is 2.80, but Moylan is 36 and returning from a second Tommy John surgery, so he's far from a safe bet.

Astros released RHP Peter Moylan.

Moylan recently found out he'll likely need a second Tommy John surgery. The move is mutually agreed upon between the club and the 35-year-old Moylan, who has plans on attempting a comeback despite the crushing setback.
Wed, Mar 26, 2014 07:51:00 PM

After receiving his MRI results back on Friday, it appears that Peter Moylan (elbow) is likely to require a second Tommy John surgery.

The 35-year-old hurler has already said that if he needs to have Tommy John again, that he's "100 percent" going to try to pitch again. It's a disappointing development for Moylan who was expected to compete in the Astros Opening Day bullpen.
Fri, Mar 21, 2014 07:14:00 PM

Astros signed RHP Peter Moylan to a minor league contract.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training. The 34-year-old hurler is coming off a disappointing 2013 campaign with the Dodgers where he posted a 6.46 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 6/7 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 innings. He'll compete for a spot in the Astros bullpen.
