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.

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.

Farquhar posted a 3.38 ERA and 5/0 K/BB ratio over 5 1/3 innings with the Rays earlier this season. The right-hander will return to a middle relief role Saturday.

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.

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.
Mon, Sep 7, 2015 03:03:00 PM

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.
Sun, Aug 23, 2015 08:43:00 AM

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.
