Rockies signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract.
The 29-year-old hurler spent the 2014 season toiling away at Triple-A Syracuse in the Nationals organization, posting a 3.67 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 91/37 K/BB ratio over 147 innings. Given the current state of the Rockies starting rotation, he should be able to compete for a spot at the back end of the rotation in spring training. Sat, Nov 22, 2014 01:31:00 PM

Nationals signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract.

The Nats recently lost Chris Young to the Mariners, so they grabbed Laffey to have another veteran arm in the system. Laffey was released by the Orioles earlier in the week and owns a 4.45 ERA for his major league career.

Orioles released LHP Aaron Laffey.

Laffey had been in minor league camp. The left-hander holds an unexciting 4.45 ERA and 1.52 WHIP over parts of seven big league seasons, but his experience and left-handedness will get him a shot somewhere.

Orioles signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract.

He did not receive an invitation to spring training. Laffey logged a 7.11 ERA over 12 2/3 unexceptional innings for the Mets and Blue Jays last year. He's supreme organizational depth, nothing more.

Brewers signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Nashville.

Laffey was released by the Dodgers earlier this month after posting a 5.61 ERA over his first 11 starts at Triple-A Albuquerque. The left-hander is doubtful to suddenly flourish in the Brewers' minor league system.

Dodgers released LHP Aaron Laffey.

Laffey latched on with the Dodgers at the end of April and posted a 5.61 ERA over 11 starts and one relief appearance with the team's Triple-A affiliate. The 28-year-old southpaw will attempt to latch on elsewhere.

Dodgers signed LHP Aaron Laffey to a minor league contract.

Laffey has been designated for assignment a couple times in the past week but has latched on with another organization quickly again. With the injuries in the Dodgers' rotation, it's a good landing spot for the lefty. He'll report to Triple-A Albuquerque for now.

Aaron Laffey has elected free agency.

Laffey cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Blue Jays this weekend, but he opted to refuse a minor league assignment. The 28-year-old southpaw has allowed 10 runs in 12 2/3 innings at the major league level this season, but it shouldn't take him too long to find a new home.

Blue Jays designated LHP Aaron Laffey for assignment.

The move doesn't come as a total surprise, as Laffey looked absolutely abysmal in Friday's spot start against the Yankees. With Brad Lincoln able to operate in a similar role for the Blue Jays, there wasn't a clear need for Laffey on the roster. He'll likely latch on elsewhere, but may have to settle for a minor league deal.

Aaron Laffey didn’t deliver the results the Blue Jays were looking for in a spot start against the Yankees on Friday, as he allowed two runs on two hits and five walks over 2 2/3 innings.

Laffey was pushed into emergency duty after Josh Johnson was scratched from his scheduled start, but struggled mightily to find the plate for the entirety of his outing. The swingman now owns a 7.11 ERA, 2.21 WHIP and 9/10 K/BB ratio over 12 2/3 innings on the season. With Brad Lincoln operating in a similar role in the bullpen, he’ll need to improve the overall results soon or his roster spot could be in jeopardy.

Aaron Laffey will make a spot start on Friday versus the Yankees in place of the injured Josh Johnson (triceps).

Laffey was designated for assignment by the Mets last weekend before being picked up off waivers by the Jays. He posted a 7.20 ERA over 10 innings of work for the Mets and makes for a poor fantasy option Friday.
Fri, Apr 26, 2013 09:17:00 AM

Blue Jays claimed LHP Aaron Laffey off waivers from the Mets.

Another day, another waiver claim by Alex Anthopoulos. Laffey was designated for assignment by the Mets over the weekend after he posted a 7.20 ERA over 10 innings of work. The 28-year-old posted a 4.56 ERA over 100 2/3 innings with the Jays last season and will presumably pitch in long relief.

Mets designated LHP Aaron Laffey for assignment.

Laffey has struggled to a 7.20 ERA and 2.10 WHIP through 10 innings this season. Robert Carson was recalled to take his place in the bullpen. Teams are always desperate for left-handed relief pitching, so Laffey, 28, should catch on with another big league team.

Aaron Laffey lasted just four innings Tuesday against the Rockies, giving up two runs on four hits and three walks.

He also hit opposing pitcher Jeff Francis with a pitch. Laffey needed 77 pitches to cover the four frames, but the good news is that the number was low enough to where the Mets can bring him back on short rest Saturday against the Nationals. With a 4.82 ERA and 1.93 WHIP, he can be ignored for fantasy purposes.
Wed, Apr 17, 2013 01:28:00 AM

Aaron Laffey is scheduled to start the second game of Tuesday's split-doubleheader against the Rockies.

There was some speculation that the Mets would skip Laffey following two straight postponements, but they'll stick with their regular rotation order. Of course, things could change if any of Tuesday's games are wiped out due to the weather.
