The Blue Jays signed the 31-year-old Joe Biagini to a minor league deal.
This deal is most likely just a depth move for the Blue Jays as Biagini has pitched just 7.1 innings since the start of 2020. He was once a valuable pitcher for the Blue Jays as he was with the club from 2016 to 2019. In 2017, Biagini logged 119.2 innings. There is not much fantasy relevance here, as Biagini will likely be bullpen depth if he makes the Blue Jays roster.
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.
