RP - HOU - MiLB
The Astros optioned RHP Joe Biagini to their alternate training site.
Chris Devenski was activated off the IL in a corresponding move. Biagini has given up 10 runs in 4 1/3 innings this summer.
The Houston Astros placed relief pitcher Joe Biagini on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder soreness.
The IL stint is retroactive to July 27th one day after Biagini made his season-debut; allowing one run on two hits over 2/3 inning against Seattle. Andre Scrubb was added to the major league roster in a corresponding move.
Blue Jays reliever Joe Biagini has been traded to the Toronto Blue Jays just ahead of Wednesday's trade deadline, according to multiple reports.
The Astros placed Ryan Pressly on the injured list earlier in the day and were said to be in the market for relievers, and they struck a deal just before the deadline with the Blue Jays for Biagini. Biagini has a 3.86 ERA on the year and 49 strikeouts over 49 innings. He has value in holds leagues but will not likely see any save opportunities in Houston.
Joe Biagini allowed two earned runs on one hit and two walks while striking out none across one-third of an inning Wednesday against the Orioles.
Biagini was named the temporary closer for the Blue Jays while Ken Giles is on the 10-day. He did not make a good impression in his first appearance as he could not get out of the eight inning. Unless your desperate for saves its better to leave Biagini on the waiver wire.
Joe Biagini struck out one and allowed no baserunners to record his first save of the season Monday in a 5-3 win over the Twins.
Biagini got an opportunity for the save with normal closer Ken Giles out sick for the night. Most chances will go to Giles during the season. Biagini is a good player to own in fantasy leagues that count holds as he already has four this year.
