Braves transferred LHP Robert Fish from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Jeff Baker has officially been added to the roster in a corresponding move. Fish, a Rule 5 pick, has been out since March 25 and isn't likely to return this season.

Braves placed LHP Robert Fish on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26, with left elbow tendinitis.

Fish made three appearances this spring before being shut down due to soreness. The 24-year-old left-hander was selected from the Angels in December's Rule 5 Draft, but the Braves get to keep him around as long as he's on the disabled list.

Braves selected LHP Robert Fish from the Angels in the Rule 5 draft.

Fish was also selected in last year's draft but was unable to crack the 25-man roster. He finally was able to get some results this past season with that nice arm of his, holding a 3.26 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 41/18 K/BB ratio over 30 1/3 innings at Double-A. The 23-year-old can touch the mid-90s with his fastball and flashes and average, albeit inconsistent, curveball. He'll try to win a spot in the Braves pen.

Royals returned Rule 5 LHP Robert Fish to the Angels.

Fish was taken by the Yankees in the Rule 5 draft and then claimed by the Royals two weeks ago after failing to win a spot. With Fish gone, it seems like a given that Tim Collins will have a spot in Kansas City's pen.

Royals claimed LHP Robert Fish off waivers from the Yankees.

The 23-year-old compiled a 6.79 ERA over 49 relief appearances in the minor leagues this past season, including an 8.93 ERA and 48/18 K/BB ratio over 42 1/3 innings with Double-A Arkansas. So why was he drafted by the Yankees from the Angels with the 28th pick in the Rule 5 Draft? Because he deals a 95 MPH fastball from the left side. He didn't have much of a shot to crack the Yankees' roster, but could conceivably make the Royals if he shows potential over the next few weeks.

Yankees selected LHP Robert Fish from the Angels with the 28th pick in the Rule 5 Draft.

Fish, who turns 23 in January, compiled a 6.79 ERA over 49 relief appearances in the minor leagues this past season, including an 8.93 ERA and 48/18 K/BB ratio over 42 1/3 innings with Double-A Arkansas. He's unlikely to make the team, but it's worth taking a look at someone who throws 95 MPH from the left side.
