ST. PETERSBURG — The Rays are finalizing an agreement to send lefty Dietrich Enns to a yet-to-be-identified team in Korea, Japan or Taiwan. Enns was placed on release waivers Wednesday with the expectation he will be unconditionally released Friday and then free to sign with his new team after that.
ST. PETERSBURG (SNN-TV) - The Rays are in the process of finalizing an agreement to send left-hander Dietrich Enns to a team either in Japan’s Nippon Professional Baseball, the Korea Baseball Organization or Taiwan’s Chinese Professional Baseball League. Enns was placed on release waivers today and, upon clearing Friday, will...
The Rays will place Enns on waivers Wednesday with the aim of granting him his unconditional release to pursue playing opportunities in Asia, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Enns will have to clear waivers before he's officially granted his release Friday, but the expectation is that he'll...
Enns struck out the only batter he faced to record his second save of the year Monday in a 6-4 win over the Blue Jays. The Rays entered the ninth sitting on a 6-2 lead but things quickly changed after David Robertson allowed a two-run homer to Marcus Semien to make it 6-4. Robertson was eventually replaced by JT Chargois who couldn't escape the inning either after loading the bases. Enns was the next one to be called upon and was able to clean up the mess after striking out Breyvic Valera to end the game. Enns has been fantastic this month with a 0.79 ERA, 0,71 WHIP and 13:1 K:BB to go along with two wins and two saves over four appearances. The Rays still don't have an outright closer, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Enns get at least another save before the regular season ends.
Enns (2-0) got the win in Thursday's 5-2 victory over Detroit, allowing one run on three hits and a walk with three strikeouts in four innings. Manager Kevin Cash tabbed Enns to follow opener Louis Head and the 30-year-old delivered the quality performance Tampa Bay was banking on. The only run he surrendered came on a Niko Goodrum solo shot in the fifth, while two Tigers were picked off the bases while the lefty was on the hill. Enns has now permitted just one run in 11 September innings across three appearances while striking out 12 batters.
Enns will pitch behind opener Louis Head against the Tigers on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Manager Kevin Cash previously said Enns would start Thursday's contest, but the left-hander will instead work as the primary pitcher. The 30-year-old covered four frames in long relief Saturday and should be able to pitch a bit deeper in Thursday's contest.
DETROIT -- — Joey Wendle tripled and homered, 30-year-old Dietrich Enns won for the first time in the major leagues and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers 7-2 on Saturday. “We all wanted to see this moment,” Wendle said about Enns. “He hasn't always had the best luck,...
Detroit — It was the response you’d expect from the defending American League champs and a team threatening to run away with the East Division title. After enduring a 10-4 loss to the Tigers on Friday night, the Tampa Bay Rays came hungry Saturday and put a 7-2 beating on the Tigers at Comerica Park.
