Andrew Albers allowed just three singles, a double and a walk with four strikeouts across six scoreless innings in a victory Saturday against the Angels.
Albers lasted exactly 100 pitches, throwing 67 strikes. He has been quite the find since coming over from the Braves in a mid-August deal for cash considerations. The young left-hander from Saskatchewan, by way of the University of Kentucky, has won four of his five starts for the M's. He is getting better, too, posting back-to-back quality starts.

Andrew Albers pitched well in Sunday's victory over the Athletics, surrendering just one run on one hits over six strong innings.

Albers punched out five on the day while issuing only one free pass. The only blemish on his afternoon came on a solo homer off the bat of Matt Olson in the sixth inning. He now owns a respectable 3.43 ERA on the year, though his 1.38 WHIP leaves much to be desired. He isn't a recommended fantasy option for Sunday's start against the Angels.
Sep 3 - 7:41 PM

Andrew Albers yielded eight runs -- three earned -- over five innings Sunday in a loss to the Yankees.

Seattle's defense committed five different errors in the Yankees' six-run first inning, though it's not like Albers pitched well. The left-hander surrendered 11 hits and two walks while falling to 2-1 on the season with a 4.20 ERA and 1.80 WHIP. If he gets another turn in the rotation, it'll come at home against the A's.
Aug 27 - 4:20 PM

Andrew Albers gave up four runs (three earned) over five-plus innings in a 6-5 win over the Braves on Monday.

Albers allowed two runs over the first five innings before getting chased when the first two batters reached base in the sixth. They ultimately each came around to score. Albers fanned three and walked one in the victory. He has done a respectable job in back-to-back starts, but we wouldn’t bank on it continuing against the Yankees this weekend at Yankee Stadium.

Andrew Albers will make another start for the Mariners on Monday in Atlanta.

Albers looked good Tuesday night against the Orioles, allowing just one earned run over five innings to earn his first major league win since 2013. The 31-year-old left-hander had a sharp 2.61 ERA and 115/19 K/BB ratio over 120 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level and carries some fantasy streaming appeal for his next matchup versus the out-of-contention Braves.
Aug 16 - 2:32 PM

Andrew Albers allowed one earned run, six hits and one walk with four strikeouts over five innings in a win against the Orioles on Tuesday.

Albers was picked up from the Braves earlier in the month and if he keeps pitching like this he should stick around a while with the big club. If he takes another turn in the Seattle rotation he'll get a chance to work in Atlanta next Monday to try and make his former organization pay for dealing him.
Aug 16 - 3:10 AM

Mariners purchased the contract of LHP Andrew Albers from Triple-A Tacoma.

Albers will make a spot start for Seattle on Tuesday night against the visiting Orioles. He was rocking a 2.61 ERA and 115/19 K/BB ratio through 120 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level, but the 31-year-old southpaw was pitching in independent ball a year ago and is not a recommended fantasy streamer versus Baltimore.
Aug 15 - 5:46 PM

Andrew Albers will be called up to start for the Mariners on Tuesday against the Orioles.

Acquired from the Braves earlier this month, Albers holds a 2.61 ERA and 115/19 K/BB ratio over 120 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level this season. The 31-year-old was in independent ball part of last season and in Korea a couple years prior to that, which gives you an idea how desperate the Mariners are for starters right now.
Aug 14 - 6:50 PM

The Mariners are expected to call up left-hander Andrew Albers on Monday.

The Mariners have yet to make an official announcement, but Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports that another pitcher will also be called up. Albers, 31, was just acquired from the Braves on Friday. He has a 2.61 ERA and 115/19 K/BB ratio over 120 2/3 innings in Triple-A this year.
Aug 14 - 3:39 PM

Mariners acquired LHP Andrew Albers from the Braves for cash considerations.

The M's are dealing with a plethora of injuries in their starting rotation, so the 31-year-old southpaw adds quality depth there. Albers has spent the entire season at Triple-A Gwinnett where he posted a 2.61 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 115/19 K/BB ratio over 120 2/3 innings.
Aug 11 - 9:02 PM

Braves signed LHP Andrew Albers to a minor league contract.

The 31-year-old southpaw appeared in six games for the Twins in 2016, registering a troublesome 5.82 ERA and 1.94 WHIP in 17 innings. With the ability to start and pitch out of the bullpen, it's a nice depth signing for the Braves.

Andrew Albers has elected free agency.

Albers was pushed off the Twins' 40-man roster last week and took the option of testing the open market. The left-hander holds an underwhelming 4.41 ERA in 79 2/3 career innings at the major league level.

Twins sent LHP Andrew Albers outright to Triple-A Rochester.

He's no longer on the 40-man roster. Albers made six appearances -- two starts -- with the Twins this season, holding a 5.82 ERA.

Andrew Albers was saddled with a no-decision in Sunday's 12-inning loss to the White Sox, yielding five runs (three earned) on six hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Opposing starter Anthony Ranaudo allowed a whopping nine runs, but Albers failed to come away with a win nonetheless. Four of the five runs on his line scored over the first two innings. This was Albers' second major league start since 2013. He has surrendered nine runs (six earned) on 12 hits over 6 2/3 in the two combined outings. A home start against the Indians shows next on his schedule.

Andrew Albers lasted just two innings Tuesday, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks in a loss to the Indians.

Albers' first start in the majors since 2013 didn't go very well, as the Twins handed him a 2-0 lead and then a 4-1 lead and he coughed them both up. The Twins need to have Jose Berrios and Tyler Duffey learn at the big league level, but they're the Twins, so they'll probably give Albers another shot on Sunday versus the White Sox.
