Date:

Cubs designated RHP Donn Roach for assignment.

Roach was roughed up for eight hits and four runs over just 3 1/3 innings in a spot start last week. He seems likely to clear waivers.
Jul 10 - 1:43 PM

Cubs optioned RHP Donn Roach to Triple-A Iowa.

The Cubs picked up Clayton Richard from the Pirates, so Roach was no longer needed for Saturday's start. He was touched up for eight hits and four runs over just 3 1/3 innings by the Cardinals last weekend.
Jul 3 - 5:39 PM

Donn Roach will take another turn in the Cubs' rotation Saturday against the Marlins.

Roach got roughed up in his debut last weekend against the Cardinals, yielding eight hits and four runs over just 3 1/3 innings. He's a poor fantasy bet versus the Fish.
Jul 2 - 10:51 AM

Donn Roach got roughed up in his Cubs debut, allowing eight hits and four run in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals.

He only lasted 3 1/3 innings. With Tsuyoshi Wada (shoulder) only expected to miss one start), Roach is probably headed back to Triple-A. Saturday marked Roach's first loss in 17 big league appearances.
Jun 27 - 11:05 PM

Cubs recalled RHP Donn Roach from Triple-A Iowa.

Roach is getting the start Saturday in place of Tsuyoshi Wada (shoulder). The right-hander went 1-0 with a 4.75 ERA in 16 appearances for the Padres last season. Chicago sent Yoervis Medina to Triple-A in the corresponding roster move.
Jun 27 - 4:13 PM

Donn Roach will be called up to start on Saturday against the Cardinals.

Tsuyoshi Wada (shoulder) isn't feeling quite ready, so the Cubs need a spot starter. Roach has put up a 2.29 ERA over 14 starts for Triple-A Iowa this season, although he's managed only 33 strikeouts over 82 2/3 innings. He can be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Jun 26 - 5:00 PM

Cubs reassigned RHP Donn Roach, RHP Pierce Johnson, RHP Corey Black, LHP Hunter Cervenka, and RHP Armando Rivero to minor league camp.

No big surprises among this round of cuts. Roach was claimed off waivers from the Padres in November after posting a 4.75 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and 17/15 K/BB ratio across 30 1/3 innings last summer for San Diego.
Mar 16 - 3:43 PM

Cubs sent RHP Donn Roach outright to Triple-A Iowa.

Chicago claimed Roach off waivers from the Padres in mid-November, but he was then removed from the Cubs' 40-man roster this past weekend to clear space for some newer acquisitions. The 25-year-old righty posted a 4.75 ERA across 30 1/3 innings in 2014 for San Diego.

Cubs designated RHP Donn Roach for assignment.

Roach was claimed off waivers by the Cubs last month. The 24-year-old right-hander had a 4.75 ERA and 17/15 K/BB ratio over 30 1/3 innings in the majors last season.

Cubs claimed RHP Donn Roach off waivers from the Padres.

Roach was designated for assignment by the Padres earlier this month. The 24-year-old right-hander had a shaky 4.75 ERA and 17/15 K/BB ratio over 30 1/3 innings in the majors this season.
Wed, Nov 12, 2014 03:06:00 PM

Padres designated RHP Donn Roach for assignment.

Roach was acquired from the Angels in May 2012 as part of a package for reliever Ernesto Frieri but never quite met the hype in the Padres' organization. The 24-year-old right-hander registered a 5.24 ERA in 77 1/3 innings this past season at Triple-A El Paso.
Mon, Nov 3, 2014 06:58:00 PM

Padres optioned RHP Donn Roach to Triple-A El Paso.

Roach has a 4.75 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 15 relief appearances and one spot start this season for San Diego. The 24-year-old could get another look later this summer.
Tue, Jun 3, 2014 05:43:00 PM

Donn Roach allowed four runs in three innings, picking up the no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

As Roach was spot starting, manager Bud Black took him out after throwing 46 pitches. Overall, he allowed four hits and two walks without recording a strikeout in his first major league start. Despite contributing out of the Padres' bullpen, Roach has plenty of minor league experience as a starter. It remains to be seen if he'll be the Padres' go-to option again with Andrew Cashner on the disabled list.
Sun, May 18, 2014 08:03:00 PM

Donn Roach will make a spot start for the Padres on Sunday afternoon against the Rockies.

Roach has been pitching out of the San Diego bullpen all year and so he'll be limited to a pitch count of 60 in his first-ever major league start on Sunday in Colorado. The 24-year-old right-hander is not a good fantasy streamer against the Rockies. He is filling in for Andrew Cashner, who was placed on the disabled list Saturday with soreness in his throwing elbow.
