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.

Wieland will start Wednesday against the Angels in place of Mat Latos, who was scratched with a sore neck.

EDGE Analysis

Wednesday's start will be Wieland's second appearance for the Dodgers this season. He gave up six earned runs in 4.2 innings in his last big league outing, so it should go without saying that the Dodgers will be hoping he can improve upon that performance Wednesday night.

Wieland is expected to be called up ahead of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Rockies to serve as the Dodgers' 26th man, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

It's not clear at this juncture if Wieland will start Game 2 of the doubleheader or simply serve as the long man out of the bullpen. If the Dodgers opt to use David Huff in relief of Zack Greinke during Monday's series opener, Wieland would likely be given the spot start for Tuesday's nightcap, which would normally be a more intriguing role for fantasy purposes. However, with a start at Coors Field is hardly a favorable environment for success, and with a demotion back to Triple-A expected to come immediately after the doubleheader, it's difficult to recommend Wieland as even a speculative pickup.

Wieland was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Bill Shaikin of the LA Times reports.

Wieland was called up for a spot start Wednesday, and he will head back to Oklahoma City for the time being. Though he lasted just 4.2 innings in Wednesday's game, he will be an option next time the Dodgers need to bring up a starter.

Wieland surrendered six runs on six hits, walking four and striking out two over 4.2 innings on Wednesday.

The call up didn't go as the youngster planned as he gave up five runs in the first inning, including a pair of two-run home runs by Scooter Gennett and Adam Lind. Wieland is now 0-1 with a 11.57 ERA after one game and we wouldn't recommend him in any fantasy format as of now.

Wieland was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

The move is all but a formality, as the team announced earlier in the week that Wieland would get the start in Wednesday's game against Milwaukee. The 25-year-old has given up eight runs on 17 hits through 20.0 Triple-A innings this season.
