Wieland was removed from the Mariners' 40-man roster a couple times this season before a late-season trade to the Braves. The 26-year-old used to be a nice prospect but has really struggled in his chances in the majors and hasn't done much better in the minors lately. Fri, Oct 14, 2016 08:28:00 AM

Braves acquired RHP Joe Wieland from the Mariners for cash considerations.

Pitching for Triple-A Tacoma for the vast majority of the 2016 season, Wieland held a 5.43 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 118/39 K/BB ratio in 124 1/3 innings. The 26-year-old right-hander also made one spot start with the Mariners, coughing up six runs in mid-August against the A's. He will serve as minor league depth for the Braves.

Down at Triple-A Tacoma, the 26-year-old right-hander pitched to a rough 5.43 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and 118/39 K/BB ratio over 124 1/3 innings. It is not yet known what the Braves might be giving up in this deal, but it's probably not much.

Mariners optioned RHP Joe Wieland to Triple-A Tacoma.

Wieland was with the club to make a spot start last week and stayed up for a couple of days extra to provide an extra long arm in the bullpen. He'll continue to bide his time at Triple-A and is likely to return once rosters expand in September.

Joe Wieland gave up six runs in five-plus innings versus the A's in his spot start Friday.

Wieland probably would have been sent right back to the minors even if he had an effective start tonight. It's a given now.

Mariners purchased the contract of RHP Joe Wieland from Triple-A Tacoma.

Mariners acquired RHP Joe Wieland from the Dodgers in exchange for INF Erick Mejia.

Wieland holds a 5.85 ERA over 47 2/3 innings in parts of three seasons in the majors. Slated to turn 26 next week, the right-hander used to be a decent prospect and might not be a bad depth addition for Seattle. The Mariners' rotation is full, so Wieland figures to start 2016 in Triple-A Tacoma's rotation.

Dodgers and RHP Joe Wieland avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $590,000 contract.

Wieland was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter and will receive the same salary he did in 2015. The 25-year-old made two starts for the Dodgers this season and had a 4.59 ERA and 92/25 K/BB ratio over 113 2/3 innings in Triple-A. He'll serve as rotation depth again in 2016.

Joe Wieland poured in four innings in Wednesday's spot start against the Angels, allowing two runs on four hits in four innings while earning a no-decision.

The two runs scored on an RBI double by David Freese in the second inning and a sacrifice fly by Kole Calhoun in the third. This was Wieland's second start in the majors. Over 8 2/3 innings, he's allowed eight runs on 10 hits. The 25-year-old right-hander held a 4.59 ERA and 92/25 K/BB ratio across 113 2/3 Triple-A innings. He'll pitch out of the bullpen moving forward unless the Dodgers need another spot start down the stretch.

Dodgers recalled RHP Joe Wieland from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Wieland struggled in a spot start with the Dodgers earlier this season and held a 4.59 ERA and 92/25 K/BB ratio over 113 2/3 frames at Oklahoma City. It's possible he'll get a start later this month, but he'll be available in long relief for now.

Dodgers optioned RHP Joe Wieland to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Wieland gave up six runs over 4 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Brewers. But the 25-year-old right-hander may get another shot soon with left-handed starter Hyun-Jin Ryu still battling shoulder discomfort.

Joe Wieland, making his 2015 debut, was hit hard early by the Brewers in a loss Wednesday as he gave up six runs over 4 2/3 innings.

The Brewers jumped out to a 5-0 lead after the first inning, helped by a pair of two-run home runs from Scooter Gennett and Adam Lind. To his credit, Wieland settled down from there. Overall, he gave up six hits and four walks while striking out two. The Dodgers are in need of starting pitching help with Hyun-Jin Ryu and Brandon McCarthy sidelined, but they may look elsewhere after Wieland's shellacking. If he's allowed to make his next scheduled start, it will come at home against the Marlins.
