Angels designated LHP Wade LeBlanc for assignment.

It comes as no surprise after he was pummeled for six earned runs over just 3 1/3 innings on Monday. The Angels will now have to find another starter for Saturday, with Randy Wolf or Michael Roth looking like the favorites if they don't get someone from outside the organization.
Aug 26 - 6:11 PM

In his first start of the season, Wade LeBlanc was detonated by the Marlins for six earned runs over just 3 1/3 innings in Monday's loss.

Los Angeles has less than a week to acquire Garrett Richards' replacement from outside the organization. They hadn't shown much resolve to do so over the past several days, but perhaps tonight's game will expedite their resolve. LeBlanc (making his first major league start since May 6, 2013) has been given numerous opportunities over the years -- and in great pitcher's parks -- and proven time and time that he isn't a major league-caliber starting pitcher. He's got a 10.13 ERA in limited action this year, but his 4.56 career ERA, accrued mostly during stints with the Padres and Marlins, tells you all you need to know. If LeBlanc gets another start, don't mimic the Angels' mistake by trotting him out in an AL-only league.
Aug 26 - 1:29 AM

Angels purchased the contract of LHP Wade LeBlanc from Triple-A Salt Lake.

LeBlanc is available out of the bullpen for now but could start in Garrett Richards' place on Monday against the Marlins. Richards is likely done for the season after suffering an ugly left knee injury Wednesday in Boston. LeBlanc is not a good fantasy bet.
Aug 21 - 12:49 PM

Angels signed LHP Wade LeBlanc to a minor league contract.

LeBlanc has been designated for assignment twice over the last few weeks -- including once by the Angels -- but didn't take long to latch on with someone again. He'll represent minor league depth.
Jun 17 - 8:50 PM

Wade LeBlanc declined his assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and elected free agency.

The veteran southpaw was outrighted off the Yankees roster early on Sunday after allowing six runs over his first 7 1/3 innings. He'll attempt to latch on elsewhere, but may have to settle for a minor league deal.
Jun 15 - 4:08 PM

Yankees sent LHP Wade LeBlanc outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

LeBlanc has the ability to refuse the assignment and declare free agency if he so chooses. The left-hander has allowed six runs over 7 1/3 relief innings in the majors this season.
Jun 15 - 8:58 AM

Yankees designated LHP Wade LeBlanc for assignment.

LeBlanc got the boot to clear a 40-man roster spot for fellow left-hander David Huff, who was acquired off waivers from the Giants on Wednesday. LeBlanc allowed two earned runs in his lone one-inning appearance with the Yankees, but he may draw interest on waivers.
Jun 11 - 6:54 PM

Yankees claimed LHP Wade LeBlanc off waivers from the Angels.

LeBlanc was designated for assignment by the Angels over the weekend, but they weren't able to sneak him through waivers. The 29-year-old hasn't enjoyed much success in the majors recently, but he could function as a long reliever for New York.
Jun 3 - 3:49 PM

Angels designated LHP Wade LeBlanc for assignment.

LeBlanc allowed four earned runs over 6 1/3 innings in a spot start Thursday against the Angels. The left-hander will likely pass through waivers unclaimed.
May 31 - 6:24 PM

Wade LeBlanc will start on Thursday versus the Mariners.

LeBlanc has been available out of the bullpen since being called up Sunday, but he hasn't been needed and now is officially starting Thursday. The veteran left-hander holds a career 4.51 ERA over 417 big league innings and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
May 27 - 8:22 PM

Angels purchased the contract of LHP Wade LeBlanc from Triple-A Salt Lake.

LeBlanc posted a 3.69 ERA over nine starts at Salt Lake but had allowed just two earned runs over his last 20 innings. He'll be available out of the bullpen for now but could start the next time the No. 5 spot comes up.
May 25 - 1:34 PM

Angels reassigned LHP Wade LeBlanc to minor league camp.

The 29-year-old southpaw looked good in Cactus League action, tossing 5 1/3 scoreless innings while posting a 1.13 WHIP and 6/2 K/BB ratio. With his ability to both start and relieve, he should get a chance with the Halos during the 2014 campaign.
Mar 23 - 6:28 PM

Angels signed LHP Wade LeBlanc to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

LeBlanc posted a rough 5.40 ERA in seven starts and 10 relief appearances this past season for the Astros and Marlins. But the Halos are desperate for pitching depth.

Wade LeBlanc has elected free agency.

LeBlanc put up a 5.40 ERA over 17 appearances with the Marlins and Astros this season. He'll surely have to settle for a minor league deal somewhere.
