Dodgers signed RHP David Hale to a minor league contract.

Hale signed a minor league deal with the Braves during spring training, but was given his release late last month. The 29-year-old appeared in two games with the Rockies last season and posted a 5.58 ERA in 22 starts in Triple-A. He'll provide depth in the minors with his new team.

Braves signed RHP David Hale to a minor league contract.

Hale saw two games with the Rockies last season. They did not go so well. He surrendered three runs on four hits in just two total innings of work. In a larger sample size, the 29-year-old right-hander pitched to a 5.58 ERA in 100 innings between the Triple-A teams of the Orioles and Rockies. There is no fantasy intrigue here even if the Braves give him a call-up later in the season.

Orioles sent RHP David Hale outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

He's now off the 40-man roster. Hale was knocked around in his two big league appearances this season and hasn't pitched well at the Triple-A level, either, with a 4.68 ERA and just 30 strikeouts over 50 innings.

Orioles claimed RHP David Hale off waivers from the Rockies; optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.

Hale was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week after allowing three earned runs over two innings of relief. He had a 6.09 ERA in 78 1/3 innings out of the Colorado bullpen last season.

Rockies designated RHP David Hale for assignment.

He's posted a 6.27 ERA over 80 1/3 innings since joining the Rockies at the beginning of last season. It's possible Hale could have some success in another environment, though, so perhaps he'll draw some interest on waivers.

Rockies recalled RHP David Hale from Triple-A Albuquerque.

He'll serve as an extra arm in the bullpen while Nick Hundley is on the 7-day concussion DL. Hale appeared in 17 games for the Rockies in 2015, compiling a 6.09 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 61/20 K/BB ratio over 78 1/3 innings.

Rockies optioned RHP David Hale to Triple-A Albuquerque.

A rotation spot has opened up with Jon Gray (abdomen) slated to start the season on the disabled list, but Hale apparently isn't under consideration for it.

David Hale (hamstring) appeared in a "B" game on Thursday.

Hale has been limited all camp by a hamstring injury, but Rockies manager Walt Weiss says that the right-hander is "good to go" now. "We've got to keep an eye on him with some of the peripheral stuff -- pitchers aren't hitting yet -- but covering first base and fielding and those types of things."

David Hale had to halt a bullpen session on Saturday after pulling a hamstring.

It's unclear at this point how long this might set him back. Hale missed a large portion of spring training last year with an oblique injury and also dealt with a groin injury during the season. The right-hander is competing for a rotation spot this spring.

David Hale allowed four runs on six hits over five innings against the Diamondbacks on Thursday.

He struck out three and walked two. The 27-year-old finished out the year plugging the rotation hole left by Yohan Flande's absence (bruised knee). He didn't acquit himself well, finishing the campaign with an unsightly 6.09 ERA.

David Hale pitched well in a victory over the Dodgers on Friday, allowing just one run on five hits over his five innings.

Hale punched out four and walked two in his spot start. The only damage against him came on an RBI groundout off the bat of Adrian Gonzalez in the first inning. The right-hander has had a rough go of it this season in Colorado, registering a 6.01 ERA and 1.46 ERA over 73 1/3 innings. It's unclear if this strong effort will earn him another start or if he'll ride out the remainder of the season in the bullpen.

David Hale will make a spot start Friday night against the Dodgers.

Yohan Flande is being skipped with knee and ankle issues. Hale owns a rough 6.32 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 68 1/3 innings this season at the major league. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes against Los Angeles.
Tue, Sep 22, 2015 05:57:00 PM

Rockies recalled RHP David Hale from Triple-A Albuquerque.

The 27-year-old has appeared in 11 games for the Rockies this season (10 starts), compiling a troublesome 6.15 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 49/15 K/BB ratio. He'll function as a long reliever out of the bullpen.
Sat, Sep 5, 2015 09:13:00 AM

Rockies optioned RHP David Hale to Triple-A Albuquerque.

He's clearing room for the return of Chad Bettis (elbow). Hale allowed 10 runs over two starts after returning from the disabled list and has a 6.15 ERA over 60 innings for the Rockies this season.
