Clears waivers
PTampa Bay Rays  AAA
September 4, 2019
Slegers cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
ANALYSIS
A 27-year-old with a career 5.63 ERA and a 6.01 WHIP in 32 big-league innings was unsurprisingly not a prized asset on the waiver wire. Slegers will remain in the Rays' organization but is unlikely to receive a September callup.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 2013 fifth-round draft pick was never considered much of a prospect due to his mediocre minor league numbers. However, a strong season at Triple-A in 2017 that saw him post his best strikeout rate since rookie ball (7.2 K/9) along with improved control led to a late season promotion to the majors. He struggled in four outings with the Twins (6.46 ERA) but his improvement in the minors suggests he could be a late bloomer at age 25. He'll compete for the fifth starter role this spring, but more likely begins the season in the Triple-A rotation.
