Wieland was traded to the Braves on Wednesday, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports.

EDGE Analysis

The return package for the Mariners has not been announced, but it could simply be in exchange for cash or a player to be named later. Wieland is now on his fifth organization, despite being just 26 years old and having only 52.2 MLB innings under his belt. The Braves' are extremely thin in the rotation due to injuries, so it's possible Wieland could receive a start or two down the stretch, perhaps as soon as Saturday against the Nationals.

Wieland cleared waivers and has been outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wieland was optioned to Triple-A on Friday following the team's activation of Steve Cishek from the DL. He'll now land at Triple-A, while freeing up a spot on the 40-man roster.

Wieland was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma Friday.

EDGE Analysis

This move is unsurprising as it was made subsequently to the team activating Steve Cishek from the 15-day DL. Wieland sports a 5.38 ERA in 103.2 innings pitched in Tacoma this season.

Wieland made his season debut in a spot start Friday versus the A's, allowing six runs on nine hits across five innings. He struck out three and suffered the loss.

EDGE Analysis

Wieland was making a spot start for Ariel Miranda, who pitched in a relief role Tuesday, and he fell victim to a pair of rough innings. He surrendered three runs in the first inning, cruised through four more innings and was then chased from the game after a rally with no outs in the sixth inning resulted in three more. Wieland was not having a stellar season at Triple-A Tacoma before being called up, and Friday's performance should ensure that he is sent right back down.

Wieland was called up by the Mariners on Friday and will get the start against Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Wieland has yet to make an appearance in the majors this season, but will take the mound in Oakland on Friday. He has amassed an 11-5 record with Triple-A Tacoma this season, posting a 5.38 ERA with a 1.56 WHIP. Ariel Miranda was scheduled to start Friday, but he made a relief appearance in Tuesday's extra-inning affair, so Wieland will get the nod.

Wieland was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Wieland has struggled mightily during his time in the minors this season, holding a 17.31 ERA and 3.38 WHIP through five starts this season. This led the Mariners to simply oust him from the 40-man roster despite not even needing the spot for any particular reason. Wieland will likely continue acting as organizational depth.

Wieland was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, Shannon Drayer of 710 AM ESPN Seattle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wieland entered camp as a long shot to claim a rotation spot for the Mariners, and it didn't help matters when he was blasted four eight runs on 10 hits and four walks over 11 innings in Cactus League play. He'll likely hold down a rotation gig at Tacoma and should be a top spot start candidate for the Mariners in the event one of their regular starters succumbs to an injury.

Wieland was traded to the Mariners on Tuesday in exchange for infielder Erick Mejia.

EDGE Analysis

Wieland primarily pitched with the Dodgers Triple-A affiliate last season, but did make two starts with the big club late in the season. He wasn't spectacular with Triple-A Oklahoma City, posting a 4.59 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 21 starts. This change in scenery definitely helps after all the pitching signings the Dodgers recently made, but the Mariners also have quite a few options already in their rotation, so it may still be tough for the right-hander to crack the rotation this season.

Wieland avoided arbitration with the Dodgers by agreeing to a one-year, $590,000 contract, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

This was Wieland's second year garnering arbitration eligibility. The 25-year-old right-hander made two starts late in the season for the Dodgers, recording a 8.31 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 8.2 innings. He wasn't particularly effective with Triple-A Oklahoma either, putting together a 4.59 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 113.1 innings, but he could be a candidate to join the Dodgers during the season if injuries effect the starting rotation.

Wieland (0-1) took a no-decision Wednesday night, giving up two earned runs over four hits and a walk while striking out two in a 3-2 loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Wieland pitched reasonably well on short notice, receiving a spot start in place of Mat Latos. Having thrown 72 pitches on the night, Wieland gave up runs on a double in the second inning and sacrifice fly in the third. Wieland's short-term future in the rotation will depend on the severity of Latos' injury.
