      Mariners' Arodys Vizcaino: Shipped to Seattle

      Arodys Vizcaino (shoulder) was traded from the Braves to the Seattle Mariners along with Jesse Biddle on Monday in exchange for Anthony Swarzak and cash.The Braves' bullpen has been struggling, and Vizcaino couldn't do anything to help it as he's out for the year following shoulder surgery. The 28-year-old has been a decent but not dominant closer in the past, with his career 3.01 ERA not being particularly well supported by his 26.3 percent strikeout rate and 10.8 percent walk rate. Even if he's not an elite arm, he could certainly find himself as the Mariners' top bullpen weapon in 2020 and could be well-positioned to add to his 50 career saves should he prove to be healthy in the spring.

      Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Transferred to 60-day IL

      Arodys Vizcaino (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Sunday.The move has no effect on Vizcaino's return timeline, as he's already been ruled out for the year following season-ending surgery. He'll make room on the 40-man roster for Jerry Blevins, acquired in a trade from Oakland earlier in the day.

      Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Undergoes season-ending surgery

      Arodys Vizcaino underwent right shoulder surgery Wednesday and will miss the remainder of the regular season.This is a tough blow for the Atlanta Braves and Vizcaino, who landed on the injured list over the weekend with right shoulder inflammation. The procedure, which was performed by Dr. David Altcheek in New York, cleaned up Vizcaino's labrum while also removing scar tissue from his right shoulder joint. A.J. Minter should step in as the team's primary closer with Vizcaino out of the picture.

      Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Lands on injured list

      Arodys Vizcaino was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right shoulder inflammation.Vizcaino hasn't pitched since blowing a save -- and earning the win -- last Sunday against the Marlins, but there wasn't a clear indication previously that he was dealing with an injury. The move is retroactive to Thursday, which would allow the 28-year-old to be activated April 21 against the Indians, though the severity of the shoulder issue is unknown.

      Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Bailed out after blown save

      Arodys Vizcaino (1-0) gave up a solo home run to Curtis Granderson in the ninth inning Sunday to blow his first save of the season, but was credited with the win after the Atlanta Braves walked it off in the bottom half of the frame.The right-hander did strike out a batter, giving him a 6:3 K:BB through four innings, and was sitting 95-96 mph with his fastball, so there's no immediate cause for concern. Vizcaino remains in the ninth-inning mix alongside A.J. Minter, and while he won't be leading the league in saves, he could still deliver 15-plus once again if he avoids any lengthy IL stints.

      Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Only available in emergency

      Manager Brian Snitker said Arodys Vizcaino is only available in an emergency Thursday against the Cubs, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.Vizcaino picked up the save against the Cubs on Wednesday, but the Atlanta Braves apparently want to steer clear of using the right-hander on back-to-back days out of the gates given the uncertainty surrounding his shoulder. If Vizcanio can't be trusted to pitch back-to-back days or twice within a three-day stretch, it would cut into his value and could ultimately open the door for A.J. Minter, who is slated to get the ball in the ninth inning should an opportunity arise Thursday, to take over as the team's primary closer down the line.

      Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Grabs first save

      Arodys Vizcaino walked one and struck out two in the ninth inning to earn his first save of the season Wednesday against the Cubs.Amidst concerns about the health of his shoulder, Vizcaino managed to secure the win for the Atlanta Braves. He did labor a bit, requiring 19 pitches to retire the side and hitting the strike zone with 12 of them. He was sitting at 96 mph with his fastball, about two ticks below his average velocity from last season.

      Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Shoulder may cost him save opps

      Uncertainty regarding Arodys Vizcaino's shoulder could cost him save opportunities once A.J. Minter (shoulder) is activated this week, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.Per Bowman, Vizcaino admitted his right shoulder began bothering him again during the final weeks of spring training. He said he felt fine this weekend, but the Atlanta Braves have not had a save opportunity yet, so he has not yet made his 2019 debut. The primary concern is how durable he might be if needed to pitch back-to-back days or twice within a three-day stretch. Minter is throwing a live batting practice session Tuesday and could be activated from the IL on Thursday. Bowman went so far as to say Minter could end up being the team's primary closer once healthy.

      Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Likely to share closing duties

      The Atlanta Braves are planning to have Arodys Vizcaino and A.J. Minter (shoulder) share closing duties based on matchups this season, Gabe Burns of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.Minter has yet to resume mound work while tending to the injury, but the Braves are apparently still planning on having him as part of the ninth-inning mix once the lefty is healthy again. That isn't positive news for Vizcaino, whose right-handedness might preclude him to the smaller share of the save opportunities if manager Brian Snitker proceeds with his plan to play matchups. It's possible the Braves revisit their plans at closer and rely more heavily on Vizcaino in that capacity if Minter doesn't progress as quickly from the injury as the club anticipates.

      Braves' Arodys Vizcaino: Path to saves clearing up

      Arodys Vizcaino's competition for the Atlanta Braves' closer role could be decreased with A.J. Minter exiting Friday's game due to left shoulder tightness.As the incumbent, Vizcaino already seemed to be the favorite for the role, but his primary competition will no longer be involved if Minter's injury is anything more than a minor one. Chad Sobotka and Dan Winkler could still be factors, but neither poses as much of a threat to Vizcaino's job as Minter.
