May 1 - 3:50 PM

Apr 30 - 2:59 PM

Twins designated RHP David Hale for assignment.

Twins claimed RHP David Hale off waivers from the Yankees.

Hale was designated for assignment by New York earlier this week despite tossing two scoreless innings of relief in his one appearance for the Yankees. The 30-year-old right-hander holds a 4.43 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, and 123/62 K/BB ratio in 180 2/3 career innings at the MLB level.

Apr 23 - 11:38 PM

Yankees purchased the contract of RHP David Hale from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Hale had a 4.08 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 81 2/3 innings (14 starts, one relief appearance) last season between the Double-A and Triple-A affiliates of the Dodgers. He'll function as minor league pitching depth for New York.
Jan 31 - 3:38 PM

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.

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.
