Rays optioned RHP Danny Farquhar to Triple-a Durham.
The Rays needed a roster spot for Saturday's starter Blake Snell, and Farquhar was the odd-man out. The 29-year-old posted a 3.38 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 5/0 K/BB ratio over his first 5 1/3 innings. He'll assuredly be back with the big league club before too long. Apr 23 - 10:09 AM

Danny Farquhar gave up one run in two innings Sunday against the Blue Jays.

Farquhar is getting talked about in the closer mix with Alex Colome with Brad Boxberger out, but he's getting use in longer outings this spring, having throwing 10 1/3 innings in seven appearances. He's been effective -- he has a 1.74 ERA -- but he's not exactly being treated like a closer. Colome is the better bet anyway.

Rays acquired RHP Danny Farquhar, OF/1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller from the Mariners for RHP Nate Karns, LHP C.J. Riefenhauser and OF Boog Powell.

Farquhar struggled mightily in 2015 but posted a 2.66 ERA with 81 strikeouts over 71 innings of work in 2014. The Rays will hope he can discover some of that former stinginess as a member of their bullpen.

Mariners recalled RHP Danny Farquhar from Triple-A Tacoma.

Farquhar will try to end his 2015 on a positive note after registering a 5.75 ERA and 1.61 WHIP over his first 36 innings with the Mariners. He'll pitch in mid-relief.

Mariners optioned RHP Danny Farquhar to Triple-A Tacoma.

He's been up and down multiple times this season in a disappointing year that's seen him put up a 5.75 ERA over 30 appearances. Farquhar will be back when rosters expand.

Danny Farquhar pitched a scoreless 12th inning for his first save of the season as the Mariners beat the Red Sox 8-6.

Farquhar allowed a leadoff walk to Travis Shaw, but struck out Blake Swihart and Garin Cecchini before getting Jackie Bradley, Jr. to ground out to end the game. The right-hander was recalled from Triple-A on Saturday and allowed a run in 2 2/3 innings. Farquhar likely won't be seen in save situations barring unique circumstances such as Sunday's. He has a 5.82 ERA with a 29/13 K/BB ratio in 34 innings this season.

Mariners recalled RHP Danny Farquhar from Triple-A Tacoma.

The 28-year-old hurler has really struggled in his time with the big league club this season, compiling a 6.23 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 26/12 K/BB ratio across 30 1/3 innings. He'll work in the middle innings for the M's.

The right-hander was only with the team for a couple of days as additional bullpen depth. He owns a troublesome 6.23 ERA and 1.62 WHIP over 30 1/3 innings with the Mariners this season. He'll continue to work through his struggles in the minor leagues.

Mariners optioned RHP Danny Farquhar to Triple-A Tacoma.

He was with the club for just two days to provide a fresh arm in the bullpen and will now head back to Tacoma to try to right the ship. He should find his way back to the Seattle bullpen at some point this season.

Mariners recalled RHP Danny Farquhar from Triple-A Tacoma.

The struggling right-hander was sent down in late May to try to get back on track, but he registered a 6.75 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 9 1/3 innings while pitching at Tacoma. He's expected to be used in middle relief.

Mariners optioned RHP Danny Farquhar to Triple-A Tacoma.

Farquhar has been a disappointment this season, posting a 6.46 ERA and 1.56 WHIP over 20 relief appearances. He'll try to iron out his issues at Triple-A before rejoining the bullpen at some point.

Danny Farquhar is unavailable Sunday due to tenderness in his pitching elbow.

Danny Farquhar allowed three runs in a third of an inning against the Indians in Wednesday's 8-5 loss.

Farquhar was credited with the loss after allowing a double, a triple, a single, and a walk. His defense didn't help him out either. Farquhar will set up for Fernando Rodney and should be a solid source of holds and saves throughout the year.
