Blue Jays claimed RHP Donn Roach off waivers from the Reds; assigned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

Roach was designated for assignment by Cincinnati on Sunday. The 25-year-old owns a decent 3.50 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 131 innings (22 starts) this season at the Triple-A level, but he doesn't miss many bats. It's nothing but a depth pickup for the Blue Jays organization.

Reds designated RHP Donn Roach for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Collin Balester. Roach was blasted in a spot start for the Cubs earlier this season and holds a 3.50 ERA over 22 starts at the Triple-A level.

Reds claimed RHP Donn Roach off waivers from the Cubs; optioned him to Triple-A Louisville.

Cubs designated RHP Donn Roach for assignment.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sat, Jun 27, 2015 04:13:00 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.

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.

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.
