Mark Melancon has 2024 mutual option declined by D-backs

The Arizona Diamondbacks have declined their end of a 2024 mutual option on reliever Mark Melancon.

Fantasy Impact

The D-backs decided to pay the veteran a $2 million buyout rather than pick up his $5 million option, an easy decision considering he didn't pitch in 2023 due to a shoulder injury. He last pitched in 2022 for the D-backs while working to a 4.66 ERA across 62 appearances, earning 18 saves in the process.

The Diamondbacks moved Mark Melancon (shoulder) to the 60-day IL Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Melancon was given platelet-rich plasma injections into his shoulder and is expected to be out for a good portion of the season. Fantasy managers should feel comfortable moving on from Melancon if there are solid options on the waiver wire.
