Drew Storen has agreed to a one-year, minor-league deal with the Royals. He will get $1.25 million if he makes the major-league club, with incentives.
Once thought to be the long-term answer at closer for the Nationals, Storen has struggled with both ineffectiveness and injury over the past several seasons, and did not pitch at all in 2018. He's a long-shot to factor into the closer's mix for the Royals, but given the state of the Kansas City bullpen, it's not out of the question that Storen could see some save opportunities if he proves himself early.
Drew Storen allowed six runs in 2/3 of an inning Sunday versus the Braves. The Reds lost to the Braves 8-1. Storen's ERA on the season is up to 4.71.
Drew Storen does not carry any fantasy value this season. He is pitching in a launching pad and will not have many opportunities to earn saves. At this point Storen is far from any fantasy value.
Drew Storen earned his first save of the season coming in to close the door as the Reds beat the Phillies 7-4 Thursday. Storen pitched one inning and struck out two while allowing one hit.
Storen is the second most roster worthy reliever in the Reds bullpen. Storen will be coming in to set up for Raisel Iglesias and when Iglesias is not available Storen will likely be closing for the Reds. However, Storen is only roster worthy in deeper leagues.
Ex- closer Drew Storen has been traded to the Seattle Mariners. In return, the Blue Jays acquire 14-year vet Joaquin Benoit.
The Mariners are trying to bolster their bullpen and they are hoping that a change of scenery can get Storen back on track. So far this season, Storen has a 6.21 ERA with three saves. For fantasy purposes, leave all players involved in this trade alone.
Drew Storen was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays this weekend. He struggled to a 6.21 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 38 appearances this season.
Storen entered the season as a potential closer for the Jays, and thus a valuable fantasy commodity. He lost out on the job this spring, and he's struggled since. The Jays have attempted to trade him, and they still could, but it doesn't appear that he'll be pitching in high-leverage situations for at least a little while.
