Nationals grant RP Jose Valverde his release
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Veteran closer Jose Valverde was granted his release by the Nationals on Wednesday, per The Washington Post

Valverde had 10 saves and a 2.39 ERA in 27 appearances for Triple-A Syracuse, but had an opt-out in his contract that said he could be released if he was not promoted. 

Valverde has 288 MLB saves in his 12-year career -- he last pitched in the majors in 2014 with the Mets.

Nationals' Jose Valverde will join Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Nationals reliever Jose Valverde will join Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, manager Matt Williams told reporters, per Comcast SportsNet Washington.

The 37-year-old Valverde signed a minor-league deal with the club last week, and had his fastball clocked in the mid-90s (mph) while working out at the team's spring training complex in Florida. Williams added that reports have been positive so far, and that the organization will learn if he'll be able to contribute at the big-league level in the near future.

"He's throwing the ball good. He's throwing the ball like he has in the past, mid-90s fastball," Williams said, per the Washington Post. "He's been a wonderful teammate to everybody down there. He's taking care of the kids, and now he's getting a chance to further the progression and see if he can help us. He was very interested in coming and being a part of it if possible, so that's kind of where we're at. He's going to keep throwing."

Nationals agree to minor-league deal with Jose Valverde
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Nationals have agreed to a minor-league deal with free agent reliever Jose Valverde, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Valverde has reported to the team's spring training complex in Florida, a source told FOX Sports. He has been working out at the Nationals' spring complex for about a week.

The 37-year-old reliever, who is known as Papa Grande, has been a free agent since opting out of his minor-league deal with the Padres in early April.

The former major-league closer is 27-33 with a 3.27 ERA and 288 saves in 12 MLB seasons. However, he has struggled the last two seasons, going 1-2 with a 5.63 ERA and 1.45 WHIP for the Tigers and Mets. He has 11 saves and has made just 41 appearances since 2013.

Repport: Jose Valverde will opt out of contract, become free agent
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Padres veteran reliever Jose Valverde has informed the club he will opt out of his minor-league contract, and the team will grant him his release, according to MLB.com on Thursday.

Valverde, 37, logged an ERA of 5.66 and 23:10 K:BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings before he was cut by the Mets last season. He has not had an ERA lower than 5.59 since 2012. He is 0-2 with a 4.15 ERA over 8 2/3 innings of work this spring.

Preller: Jose Valverde has a good chance of making Padres roster
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Padres veteran reliever Jose Valverde is 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA through four spring outings. His numbers don't exactly jump off the page, but apparently the former major-league closer is doing enough to pitch his way into contention for a spot in the bullpen, per MLB.com.

"He has a good chance of making the team," Padres general manager A.J. Preller said on Tuesday morning.

Manager Bud Black also likes what he sees from Valverde, who said he feels like he is 21 years old because he is throwing 98 mph.

"Valverde is doing great," Black said Tuesday. "His stuff is good. His velocity seems to be back. Good split-finger, he had a good winter ball. There's a presence to him. He's an experienced guy with where he's been and what he's done in his career. He's that guy who's been through it from April to October. That goes a long way. We'll see how it plays out."
