Jul 2 - 10:15 AM

Royals optioned RHP Casey Coleman to Triple-A Omaha.

The move clears a spot for Omar Infante's return from the disabled list. Coleman tossed 2 2/3 scoreless innings over two appearances with the big club and should get another chance soon.
May 26 - 4:03 PM

Royals purchased the contract of RHP Casey Coleman from Triple-A Omaha.

Coleman allowed just two earned runs over his first 12 relief innings at Omaha after signing on last month. He'll be used as a long reliever.
May 16 - 3:27 PM

Royals signed RHP Casey Coleman to a minor league contract.

Coleman had been released last week by the Cubs. The 26-year-old has plenty of big league experience but spent all of last season at the Triple-A level, posting a 3.16 ERA over 41 appearances. He's not a bad depth guy to have around.
Apr 16 - 8:15 AM

Cubs sent RHP Casey Coleman outright to Triple-A Iowa.

Coleman struggled in the Cubs bullpen in 2012, posting a 7.40 ERA and 2.01 WHIP over 24 1/3 innings. While talented, he'll need to find consistency in the minor leagues before legitimately competing for a spot in the bullpen in 2013.

Cubs designated RHP Casey Coleman for assignment.

The move clears room for the newly-signed Scott Feldman on the 40-man roster. Coleman, 25, had an ugly 7.40 ERA and 16/12 K/BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings with the Cubs this past season.

Cubs recalled RHP Casey Coleman from Triple-A Iowa.

Coleman was terrible in his time with the Cubs this season and wasn't too great at Triple-A, either. He'll try to make the team as a long man next spring.

Casey Coleman is dealing with a right shoulder injury.

It's not clear when he suffered the injury or how long he might be out, but the Cubs have signed Seth McClung to take his spot in Triple-A Iowa's rotation. Coleman has a 7.40 ERA and 16/12 K/BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings with the Cubs this season.

Cubs optioned RHP Casey Coleman to Triple-A Iowa.

Coleman struggled in a spot-start Tuesday against the Pirates, allowing four runs on seven hits over 4 2/3 innings. He now has a 7.40 ERA and 16/12 K/BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings with the Cubs this season.

Casey Coleman struggled in his spot start against the Pirates on Tuesday, allowing four runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings.

Coleman struck out five but also walked four. He was making the start in place of Ryan Dempster, who was traded to the Rangers at the July 31 deadline. This is likely a one-and-done situation for Coleman, as he’s slated to head back to his more familiar middle relief role.

Cubs recalled RHP Casey Coleman from Triple-A Iowa.

Coleman will replace Ryan Dempster in the rotation, at least in the short-term. The youngster is starting against the Pirates on Tuesday night in the first game of the post Dempster-Soto-Maholm-Johnson era. Coleman had a 7.32 ERA and 11/8 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings with the Cubs earlier this season and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

The Cubs are expected to recall right-hander Casey Coleman from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.

Coleman and Welington Castillo will replace Paul Maholm and Reed Johnson on the active roster. Brett Jackson was pulled from a game with Triple-A Iowa on Monday night, but the Cubs will likely wait until Wednesday to bring him up as they have deals in the works. Coleman has a 7.32 ERA and 11/8 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings with the Cubs this season and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Tue, Jul 31, 2012 02:06:00 AM

Casey Coleman has been scratched from his scheduled start Thursday with Triple-A Iowa.

Coleman is expected to travel to St. Louis in case the newly-claimed Justin Germano can't make it in time for Friday's game. Like Germano, he could also be an option to start if Ryan Dempster is traded, though no deal is believed to be imminent at this time. The 24-year-old right-hander has pitched exclusively in relief with the Cubs this season, posting a 7.32 ERA and 11/8 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings.
