JON RAUCH RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rauch and Royals agree to minor league contract

Reliever Jon Rauch agreed Thursday to a minor league contract and will report to the major league spring training camp. Rauch was just 1-2 with a 7.56 ERA in 15 appearances for the Marlins last season, but the 35-year-old right-hander was 3-7 with a respectable 3.59 ERA with the Mets in 2012. The 6-foot-11, 290-pound Rauch will have to win a spot in a loaded Royals bullpen in spring...

Putting Jon Rauch’s 2012 season in perspective

Jon Rauch has gotten a lot of credit for how well he has pitched lately. In his last 29 games, he has a 0.86 ERA along with a 0.571 WHIP and has been hands down the most reliable pitcher in the bullpen. But to date there has been very little speculation on if the Mets will try to re-sign Rauch for the 2013 season. I was a vocal critic of the decision to sign Rauch to a $3.5 million...

Jon Rauch continues to dominate in second half

It seems like every time I check the box score these days Jon Rauch has tossed another scoreless inning for the Mets.  It’s getting to the point where I expect to see it now and the numbers for the 6’11″ righty have not disappointed.  Since June 10th of this year Rauch has trimmed his ERA from a fat 4.88 all the way down to a slim 2.98.  The 33-year-old has managed to cut...

Jon Rauch Is Leading An Effective Resurgence In The Mets Bullpen

When the Mets signed Jon Rauch who was coming off one of his worst seasons in his career, there may have been none that were more critical of giving him a $3.5 million dollar guaranteed contract than I was. In fact, at the time and considering how little money we had to spend, I still say it was a questionable move for a pitcher who was expeted to provide middle relief and occasional...

Have you noticed how well Jon Rauch has been pitching lately?

I know what you might be thinking with the title of this post: “Yeah, but it’s too little, too late.” You would be correct and in full disclosure, I think the signing of Jon Rauch was a mistake. However, give credit where credit is due, as we should applaud Rauch for helping the stopping of the bleeding, as he is keeping up his end of the bargain of late. Take last night...

Give Rauch credit...

Photo by Michael BaronI have to admit when Jon Rauch came into the game with the bases loaded and no outs with the Mets leading 8-4, I had no faith in the big righty.  I liked the Rauch signing and thought he'd be an excellent set-up man who could take over at closer if needed, but as he's struggled this season I've grown weary.  Earlier in the week I posted that I...

Should Jon Rauch get more rope than Manny Acosta?

Remember when Jon Rauch opened the season with 11 scoreless appearances? It seems like a lifetime ago, doesn’t it? The only reason I remember is that I spent all offseason saying the Mets made a mistake giving $3.5 million to Rauch and then he started off great. Earlier, I gave props to Rauch for his good start but included this caveat: “I still expect regression to kick...

Jon Rauch: NL East Killer

Jon Rauch has been outstanding for the Mets in the bullpen this year.  After getting credit for his team-leading third victory in the Mets’ 2-1 victory over the Miami Marlins last night, Rauch has now pitched 9⅓ scoreless innings in ten appearances.  But the zero in the runs allowed column is just the beginning of the story. Rauch has faced a total of 32 batters over his first...

Rauch setting Mets up for Success

Most people scoffed at the free agent acquisitions made by the New York Mets this offseason.  The team brought in Jon Rauch and Frank Francisco from Toronto in an effort to bolster a bullpen that was inconsistent and unreliable throughout the 2011 season.  So while the Marlins loaded up on big name free agents like Jose Reyes, Heath Bell, and Mark Buehrle and the Phillies brought...
