Dodgers optioned RHP Casey Fien to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Fien (and his $2.3 million salary) was just claimed off waivers from the Twins over the weekend. The 32-year-old will provide some relief depth in the minors.
May 9 - 6:29 PM

Dodgers claimed RHP Casey Fien off of waivers from the Twins.

Fien, who had carved out a role as a setup man in the Twins bullpen in recent years, posted a troublesome 7.90 ERA and 1.76 WHIP across his first 14 outings in 2016. The Dodgers will see if they can salvage something here.
May 7 - 3:35 PM

The Twins have placed right-hander Casey Fien on waivers, according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press.

Fien has been a disaster this year. In 14 outings, he owns a dismal 7.90 ERA to go with an equally discouraging 1.76 WHIP. Opponents have hit a robust .350 against him over that span. Fien can reject a minor league assignment if he clears waivers.
May 5 - 8:35 PM

Twins and RHP Casey Fien avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.275 million contract.

Fien was arbitration-eligible for the second time. He posted a 3.55 ERA across 62 relief appearances in 2015 and will be used in a setup role again in 2016.
Jan 15 - 2:43 PM

Twins activated RHP Casey Fien from the 15-day disabled list.

Casey Fien (shoulder) could be cleared to begin a rehab assignment after throwing a bullpen session Sunday.

Twins placed RHP Casey Fien on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain.

Casey Fien left an appearance Wednesday against the Tigers because of an apparent injury.

Fien departed with a trainer shortly after Miguel Cabrera launched a two-run homer to put Detroit up 10-7 in the top of the ninth inning. Fien had some right shoulder issues earlier this month and could now be looking at an extended stay on the disabled list.
Wed, Apr 29, 2015 04:33:00 PM

Casey Fien returned to the mound Wednesday, pitching a scoreless eighth inning for a hold against the Royals.

Casey Fien (shoulder) felt good after throwing in the bullpen on Monday.

Fien's been unavailable since Friday due to shoulder stiffness. After Monday's bullpen session the pitcher said that he was "good to go." Given that the Twins haven't scheduled an MRI and Fien isn't being bothered by lingering soreness, this injury looks to be pretty minor.
Mon, Apr 13, 2015 01:33:00 PM

Casey Fien was unavailable on Friday due to shoulder stiffness.

He'll attempt to play catch on Saturday and see how he feels. The Twins haven't scheduled an MRI and don't appear overly concerned at this point. He's considered day-to-day for the time being.
