Drew Storen will undergo Tommy John surgery.

Storen had surgery back in 2012 to remove a bone chip from his elbow, but this is his first Tommy John surgery. He'll most likely be sidelined until 2019. The veteran reliever held a 4.45 ERA with 48 strikeouts over 54 2/3 innings for the Reds this season.

Reds placed RHP Drew Storen on the 10-day disabled list with a sprained right elbow.

This will presumably end Storen's year. He finishes with 58 appearances, a 4.45 ERA, and 48 strikeouts in 54 2/3 innings. The 30-year-old right-hander can become a free agent in November.

Drew Storen hit three batters while giving up two runs in an inning Monday against the Yankees.

Storen struggled and dealt with diminished velocity this spring, but even though the velocity hadn't come much of the way back, he still entered this one with a 1.29 ERA in 14 innings. Despite hitting the three batters, he was allowed to finish out his inning tonight. He also walked a batter, and it took him 31 pitches to get through the seventh. He remains a fallback option for saves in the Cincy pen, but we're not expecting him to remain particularly effective.

Drew Storen's fastball has been clocked in the 88-90 mph range this spring.

Storen's velocity was down to 92 mph last season when he struggled to a 5.23 ERA, and it's dropped even more this spring. He's also posted a 15.88 ERA in six Cactus League appearances. It's possible he'll regain some zip on the heater once the regular season begins, but until that happens it's hard to take Storen seriously as a sleeper for saves.

Reds signed RHP Drew Storen to a one-year, $3 million contract.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported the contract terms. The deal includes $1.5 million in performance bonuses and a $500,000 assignment bonus if he's traded. Storen has extensive closing experience, but he's coming off a shaky year where he posted a 5.23 ERA and 48/13 K/BB ratio over 51 2/3 innings between the Blue Jays and Mariners. He was better after joining the Mariners, though he also missed some time with shoulder inflammation. He'll now try to get his career back on track in Cincinnati's bullpen, likely in a set-up capacity.

Mariners activated RHP Drew Storen from the 15-day disabled list.

Storen missed the last few weeks with right shoulder inflammation. He holds a 4.35 ERA over 10 appearances since joining the Mariners.

Drew Storen (shoulder) is expected to be activated on Sunday.

Storen was back in the Mariners' clubhouse Saturday following a rehab appearance with Triple-A Tacoma on Friday night. The right-hander has been sidelined with shoulder inflammation for the past two weeks. Storen started the year as a closer candidate for the Blue Jays but instead has pitched to a brutal 5.77 ERA over 48 appearances for Toronto and Seattle.

Mariners placed RHP Drew Storen on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 20, with right shoulder inflammation.

Storen has had an awful year on the whole and had a rough debut with the Mariners in late July, but he allowed just one run over his last nine appearances. The Mariners have called up outfielder Guillermo Heredia to take his place on the active roster.

Mariners acquired RHP Drew Storen and cash from the Blue Jays for RHP Joaquin Benoit.

Storen was designated for assignment by Toronto on Sunday morning after posting a 6.21 ERA in 38 relief appearances. He's making an $8.375 million salary in 2016, and the Jays will cover the majority of what's left. Benoit has also been pretty terrible this season.

Blue Jays designated RHP Drew Storen for assignment.

What a disaster of a season it's been for Storen, who has posted a 6.21 ERA over 38 appearances with the Jays. His velocity has also been down a bit, although he's struck out a batter per inning. Storen will almost surely clear waivers given his $8.375 million salary, although it's possible the Jays will be able to work out a trade.

Drew Storen gave up four runs while retiring just one batter Monday against the Rockies.

Storen gave up two singles and hit two batters before being pulled. Jesse Chavez took over and merely added fuel to the fire in what turned out to be a six-run inning for the Rockies. Storen had been doing solid work the last two months after a horrid April, but tonight's showing pushed his ERA back up to 6.28. His struggles are the biggest reason the Jays will be on the hunt for another setup man next month.

Drew Storen got two outs with a two-run lead for his third save of the year Monday against the Yankees.

The Jays didn't want to use Roberto Osuna tonight, so they turned to Aaron Loup to start the ninth in a 4-0 game. After he surrendered a two-run homer with one out, Storen took over and retired two of the three batters he faced. Storen has picked up three saves this year, but his ERA stands at 6.75.
Mon, May 30, 2016 09:45:00 PM

Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun reports that the Blue Jays have told teams Drew Storen is available via trade.

The Jays surely aren't in sell mode even after a disappointing start, but it does appear they're willing to deal their setup man for the right return. Storen holds a 7.80 ERA on the season and has seen his velocity drop, although he boasts a 16/4 K/BB ratio across 15 innings. He'll be a free agent after the season. Elliott says scouts from the Braves, Rockies, Royals, Dodgers, Marlins, Padres and Giants were watching the Jays-Twins series this weekend.

Drew Storen danced around trouble to pitch a scoreless ninth inning against the Dodgers on Friday for his second save of the season.

Storen got the nod over Roberto Osuna, who was unavailable for unspecified reasons. He walked Yasmani Grandal to begin the inning before giving up a one-out single to Joc Pederson. Chase Utley reached on a bunt single with two outs to load the bases, but Storen got Corey Seager to fly out to left field to end it. Storen has three straight scoreless appearances under his belt, but still owns an ugly 7.36 ERA on the year.
