Free agent Wade LeBlanc has been throwing bullpen sessions on his own and preparing to showcase in front of scouts in the coming weeks, per Jon Morosi of MLB Network.
LeBlanc dealt with a stress fracture in his elbow during the 2020 season and that likely had something to do with the horrible numbers he put up. He clocked a 8.06 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over 22 1/3 innings (six starts) with Baltimore. If he performs well in his showcase he could end up with a minor league contract.
Wade LeBlanc has been moved to the 60-day IL with a left elbow stress reaction. It's a bone injury, which is much better than a muscle/ligament injury, per manager Brandon Hyde.
LeBlanc should come back early next year, but he will likely continue to be relevant in only AL-only leagues. He finishes his season with an 8.06 ERA, 1.57 WHIP, and 13 strikeouts in 22 and 1/3 innings.
Wade LeBlanc left Sunday's start against the Red Sox due to left elbow discomfort.
The lefty pitcher is likely headed for an MRI. He recorded just two outs before departing on Sunday, allowing one run.
Wade LeBlanc started Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, giving up five runs on four innings. He also issued two walks while striking out three. He did not factor into the decision, but the Orioles lost 8-7.
LeBlanc's ERA currently sits at 7.29 and does not hold any mixed league appeal. He'll get the Red Sox at home next.
Wade LeBlanc pitched 3 and 1/3 innings on Wednesday against the Phillies, giving up three runs on six hits and three walks. He struck out two in the no-decision, and the Orioles won 5-4.
LeBlanc continues to be fantasy irrelevant, and after this start he has a 7.13 ERA. He gets the Blue Jays at home in his next start.
