Cubs Sign RHP Luke Farrell to Minor League Deal

Cubs Sign Old Friend Luke Farrell

Per pitcher Luke Farrell, pitcher Luke Farrell has signed with the Chicago Cubs. Farrell, 30, pitched with the Cubs in 2018, showing great stuff at times, but little in the way of results. He wound up with the Rangers the next two seasons, and then the Twins last year. Not unlike a number of hitters we’ve come to know, Farrell has reached that point in his career where he can pretty clearly pitch very well at Triple-A, but hasn’t quite been able to get over the hump in the big leagues.

Jaguars' Luke Farrell: Zero targets in finale

Farrell didn't receive a target during Sunday's 26-11 win over Indianapolis. Farrell started Sunday's contest alongside Chris Manhertz, but Jacob Hollister was the only Jacksonville tight end to be targeted in the passing game. Farrell finished his rookie campaign with seven receptions for 56 yards in 15 games, and he should enter 2022 competing for a depth role with Manhertz behind Dan Arnold (knee), who currently projects to be the team's No. 1 tight end.

Jaguars' Luke Farrell: Works as No. 1 tight end

Farrell caught one of two targets for seven yards during Sunday's 50-10 loss to the Patriots. Farrell received the start and played 72 percent of the offensive snaps with James O'Shaughnessy (hip) sidelined, though it didn't result in much involvement in the passing game. It was Farrell's first reception since Week 8, and he's unlikely to be a significant factor in the passing game in the season finale versus the Colts even if he sees a similar snap count.

Jaguars' Luke Farrell: Back from COVID list

Farrell (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday. Farrell tested positive for the virus Monday but is back on the active roster without missing a game. James O'Shaughnessy (hip) has been unable to practice this week while Chris Manhertz (illness) and Jacob Hollister (illness) remain in the health and safety protocols, so Farrell could be in line for an increased workload this weekend in New England.

Wednesday feature: Luke Farrell

JACKSONVILLE – The third day of the NFL Draft is a day for stories. Most sixth- and seventh-round selections aren't well-known, so television cameras delight when a former college turned professional coach calls a father of a former player to say he's picking his son. Jaguars Head Coach Urban Meyer knew what he wanted – and what he was getting – when he called tight end Luke Farrell late on the final day of the '21 draft. Farrell is a hard-nosed blocking tight end with enough quickness and savvy to contribute to the passing game. He's also smart, tough and the kind of dependable player every coach wants – especially Meyer, who was building his first professional team. Farrell has just six catches for 49 yards as a rookie, but he's a durable blocker and top performer on special teams and still learning to play on Sundays.

Twins' Luke Farrell: Sent to Triple-A

Farrell was outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports. Farrell finished the campaign as a member of the big-league bullpen, but he's been removed from the 40-man roster heading into the offseason. The 30-year-old made 20 appearances for Minnesota this year and had a 4.74 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 25:13 K:BB over 24.2 innings.

Jaguars' Luke Farrell: Starting role opens up

Farrell should have an increased role for the Jaguars because James O'Shaughnessy (ankle) is out indefinitely, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports. O'Shaughnessy suffered the injury early in Sunday's loss to the Broncos, and Farrell ended up catching one of two targets for six yards while playing 36 offensive snaps. The rookie fifth-round pick saw more playing time than blocking specialist Chris Manhertz, who also did not receive a target. Farrell is unlikely to be a significant piece of the offense but should continue to operate as one of Jacksonville's top two tight ends.

Twins' Luke Farrell: Starting bullpen game

Farrell will start Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Farrell has a 1.31 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 21:8 K:BB across 20.2 innings this season, and he'll make his first start of the campaign Sunday with the Twins employing a bullpen game. The 30-year-old covered a season-high 2.1 frames his last time out Monday and shouldn't be expected to go much deeper than that in Toronto.

Twins' Luke Farrell: Lit up as opener

Farrell (1-1) allowed five runs on seven hits and struck out one in one inning, taking the loss Sunday versus Toronto. The right-hander started the bullpen game for Minnesota, but he allowed Toronto to go all the way through the order while piling up five runs. Farrell's ERA inflated from 1.31 to 3.45 with the nightmarish start Sunday, which suggests he probably won't be asked to open another game any time soon. He also has a 1.29 WHIP, 22:8 K:BB and one holds through 21.2 innings this season.

Twins' Luke Farrell: Back from IL

Farrell (oblique) was activated from the 60-day injured list Sunday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports. Farrell is back in Minnesota's bullpen after an oblique strain sidelined him since late June. The righty was an effective relief option in 13 games before getting injured, as he posted a 1.76 ERA and 17:6 K:BB in 15.1 innings. He takes the roster spot of Andrew Albers, whom the Twins optioned Sunday.
