Moylan posted a 3.49 ERA and 46/25 K/BB ratio across 59 1/3 innings for the Royals last season, holding righties to a .161/.244/.236 batting line.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Indians have interest in Peter Moylan.

Moylan tied for the major league lead in appearances in 2017 with Bryan Shaw, the guy he might ostensibly replace in Cleveland. The sidearmer posted a 3.49 ERA and 46/25 K/BB ratio across 59 1/3 innings for the Royals last season, holding righties to a .161/.244/.236 batting line. Moylan turned 39 this winter.

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

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.

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.
Wed, Jun 1, 2016 06:07:00 PM

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Jan 22, 2016 05:51:00 PM

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.
