Rays released RHP Danny Farquhar.

Farquhar was pushed off the Rays' 40-man roster before the All-Star break and he is now officially a free agent. The 30-year-old right-hander posted a 4.11 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 33/22 K/BB ratio in 35 innings this season out of the Tampa Bay bullpen.
Jul 20 - 3:04 PM

Rays sent RHP Danny Farquhar outright to Triple-A Durham.

Farquhar was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay near the end of June after posting a 4.11 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 33/22 K/BB ratio in 35 innings of relief. It's a mild surprise he didn't land with another team.

Rays designated RHP Danny Farquhar for assignment.

Farquhar tossed an inning of scoreless relief in Wednesday's loss to the Pirates, but that was not enough to save him from the DFA. Prior to the appearance, the 30-year-old right-hander had been pitching to a 4.24 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 33/22 K/BB ratio in 34 innings. Farquhar has had major league success in the past -- 3.06 ERA in 35 1/3 frames last season -- and could see some interest on waivers.

Rays and RHP Danny Farquhar avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $900,000 contract.

He was arbitration-eligible for the first time as a Super 2 player. Farquhar held a 3.06 ERA over 35 appearances in 2016.

Alex Colome (biceps) was activated in the corresponding roster move. Farquhar continues to be the odd man out in Tampa Bay's bullpen. He's already been demoted four times this season. The right-hander holds a 6.75 ERA over 11 outings for the Rays this season.

Rays recalled RHP Danny Farquhar from Triple-A Durham.

It's been a whirlwind 48 hours for Farquhar, who was recalled Saturday, sent down after the game and is now headed back to Tampa Bay. The Rays cleared a spot for Farquhar by designating Ryan Webb for assignment.

Farquhar has seen 5 1/3 innings with the Rays this season while pitching to a 3.38 ERA and 5/0 K/BB ratio. Now he heads back to Triple-A, where the 29-year-old right-hander had allowed five runs on 12 hits over 8 2/3 innings.

Rays designated RHP Danny Farquhar for assignment.

He'll be optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday. Farquhar will remain on the 40-man roster. The Rays recalled Farquhar Saturday so they'd have another bullpen arm after starter Jake Odorizzi lasted just four innings in Friday night's loss to Oakland. Farquhar didn't pitch on Saturday.

Rays recalled RHP Danny Farquhar from Triple-A Durham.

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.
Sat, Apr 23, 2016 10:09:00 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.
