Guardians Acquire Darren McCaughan From Marlins

The Cleveland Guardians acquired right-hander Darren McCaughan from the Miami Marlins on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations. The move comes after the Marlins designated McCaughan for assignment after he allowed eight earned runs on nine hits (three home runs) while walking three and striking out only two in 4 2/3 innings against the Oakland Athletics in his lone appearance on Saturday. The 28-year-old will now give the Guardians both starting and relieving depth in the minors after they sent him to Triple-A Columbus. McCaughan has a 9.16 career ERA (8.65 FIP) and 1.82 WHIP with 10 walks and 14 strikeouts in 18 2/3 innings over six appearances (one start) in his three years in the big leagues. He remains far off the fantasy radar.

Darren McCaughan Optioned To Triple-A

Miami Marlins reliever Darren McCaughan has been optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville. The right-hander was claimed off waivers by the club from the Seattle Mariners this offseason after he made just three appearances with Seattle in the 2023 season. McCaughan worked to a 5.40 ERA in that time with Seattle while he also scuffled to a 5.83 ERA across 25 outings, all of which were starts, with Triple-A Tacoma. McCaughan is the owner of a 7.07 ERA across 14 appearances at the big-league level, appearing in just five games over the last two campaigns.

Marlins Acquire Darren McCaughan, Designate Peyton Burdick

The Miami Marlins have acquired right-handed pitcher Darren McCaughan from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for cash considerations. To make room for McCaughan on the 40-man roster, Miami designated outfielder Peyton Burdick for assignment. McCaughan, who will be 28 years old when the 2024 regular season begins, showed promise through limited major league action last year. Over the course of five innings, he struck out 10 batters while posting a 2.71 xFIP and 64.3 GB%. Although this was a small sample size, McCaughan has shown that he can be a contributor out of the bullpen. On the other hand, Burdick, who was designated for assignment, has struggled at all levels of pro ball, posting high strikeout rates, low OPS totals, and poor defensive metrics. He isn't expected to make an impact at the big-league level anytime soon, regardless of whether he remains with the Marlins or joins another organization.

Darren McCaughan Rocked Monday

Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Darren McCaughan was not up to the task of facing the Houston Astros Monday, allowing seven runs on eight hits and a walk in four innings of work. He struck out two batters, and three of his eight hits allowed went for home runs. Despite a sparkling debut in his last outing, McCaughan was not considered a top prospect for a reason, and he is well off the fantasy radar with an ERA of 8.00 in nine innings.

Darren McCaughan Likely To Start Monday

Seattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said that rookie right-hander Darren McCaughan would likely start on Monday against the Houston Astros. "He's earned a second chance with his performance yesterday," Dipoto said. McCaughan allowed one run on no hits while walking three and striking out none in five innings in his major league debut against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday. The 25-year-old also had a decent 3.97 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 59 innings over 10 starts for Triple-A Tacoma before his call-up, but he had fanned only 46 hitters and has never been a big strikeout guy in the minors. He'll be worth a look in AL-only leagues if he sticks in Seattle's starting rotation, but he'll be much more of a risk as a streamer in his first actual major league start against the Astros next week.

Darren McCaughan Impressive In Debut

Seattle Mariners pitcher Darren McCaughan made his major league debut Wednesday afternoon and didn't allow a hit in five innings, though he did walk three batters and allow one earned run. McCaughan is an unheralded prospect, but he could be in line for some time in the Mariners rotation amidst injuries to Justin Dunn and Justus Sheffield, among others, though fantasy managers don't need to rush to add him.
