SP,RP - BOS
Dylan Covey was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Covey was acquired from the Rays earlier in the week to add pitching depth. He struggled in two innings of work against the Orioles on Saturday, giving up two runs on three hits in his two innings of work. Covey could return to the majors at some point this season, but he's struggled in the big leagues in each of the last three seasons.
Dylan Covey was named to Boston's 30-man roster according to MLB.com.
Covey was traded from the Rays to the Red Sox on Tuesday. The 28-year-old spent the past three seasons with the White Sox before signing a minor-league deal with the Rays in February. Don't expect Covey to have much fantasy value as he comes into the season with a career ERA of 6.54 over 250 innings pitched.
Dylan Covey was acquired by the Red Sox from the Rays. He has replaced Bobby Poyner in the player pool.
Covey may see emergency innings as part of a decimated Red Sox rotation, be a long reliever, or be sent to Boston's alternate site. Regardless, his career 6.54 ERA in 250 innings means that he is not fantasy relevant at this point.
Dylan Covey has been designated for assignment by the White Sox.
Covey was hit hard with the White Sox last year -- 7.98 ERA over 18 appearances and 12 starts. Covey was selected in the first round out of high school, but he ultimately went to college and was taken in the fourth round three years later. He moved to Chicago in the Rule 5 Draft, but he's struggled during his time in the majors with the White Sox, posting an ERA of 6.54 over 63 appearances (45 starts) spanning three seasons.
Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Covey allowed five runs in a 9-7 win over Seattle on Friday. Covey went 3 2/3 innings while striking out two and walking three.
It wasn't a great start but Covey's offense got him off the hook with a big night. Covey now has a 1-8 record, 7.98 ERA, 1.76 WHIP, and 41 strikeouts in 58 2/3 innings.
