Top Cesar Valdez News

  • Angels' Cesar Valdez: Lands with Angels

    Valdez signed a minor-league deal with the Angels on Saturday, Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports.

    Valdez spent the 2022 season with the Angels and pitched almost exclusively at Triple-A Salt Lake. He had success, posting a 3.94 ERA and 1.10 WHIP across 146.1 frames. Valdez will likely remain organizational depth for much of 2023, but he could get some spot starts with the big-league club.

  • Cesar Valdez: Chooses free agency

    Valdez elected free agency Thursday, per the MILB transaction report.

    Valdez was designated for assignment May 18 by the Angels and spent the rest of the season with Triple-A Salt Lake. Prior to losing his spot on the 40-man roster, Valdez appeared in only one game with the Angels and covered one inning.

  • Angels' Cesar Valdez: Clears waivers

    Valdez cleared waivers Sunday and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Valdez was designated for assignment by the Angels on Wednesday but will remain in the organization. He pitched in one game during his time with the big club, allowing one run in one inning of work. The veteran had been working as a starter in the minors prior to his call-up, compiling a 3.03 ERA and 1.08 WHIP across five starts covering 35.2 innings.

  • Angels' Cesar Valdez: Designated for assignment

    Valdez was designated for assignment by the Angels on Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Valdez's contract was selected by the Angels on Tuesday, and he allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and no walks while failing to strike out a batter in a relief inning against the Rangers. He'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster after Jose Suarez was called up Wednesday.

  • Angels' Cesar Valdez: Contract selected by Halos

    Valdez had his contract selected by the Angels on Tuesday.

    The 37-year-old joined Los Angeles on a minor-league deal in mid-March and will now make his way to the big club. Valdez had a 5.87 ERA, 1.65 ERA and 45:14 K:BB over 46 innings for Baltimore last year, but he was pitching well at Triple-A Salt Lake early in 2022.

  • Angels' Cesar Valdez: Signs MiLB deal with Halos

    Valdez agreed to a minor-league contract with the Angels on Thursday which includes an invite to big-league camp.

    Valdez recorded eight saves for Baltimore last season but struggled overall with a 5.87 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 45:14 K:BB over 46 innings. He could earn a spot in the big-league bullpen but is unlikely to find himself in a high-leverage role for the Angels.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Accepts outright assignment

    Valdez cleared waivers Saturday and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Norfolk, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

    Valdez began the season as the Orioles' closer but will end it having been designated for assignment twice. Seeing as he's a 36-year-old who's posted a 5.87 ERA this season over 46 innings, it's unsurprising that he passed through waivers unclaimed.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Designated for assignment

    Valdez was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Wednesday.

    Valdez's contract was selected Tuesday, but he took the loss against the Phillies when he gave up two runs (one earned) in two-thirds of an inning. He'll be cast off the 40-man roster once again as part of a move to make room for right-hander Konner Wade in the major-league bullpen.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Takes loss in return

    Valdez (2-2) allowed two runs (one earned) on a hit and a walk with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning, taking the extra-inning loss versus Philadelphia on Tuesday.

    The right-hander had a chance to pick up his first save since May 10 when he entered Tuesday's game. Instead, an intentional walk to Bryce Harper and a two-run triple from J.T. Realmuto handed Valdez a loss and a blown save in his first major-league appearance in over a month. He has a 5.87 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 45:14 K:BB through 46 innings, and he's expected to fill more of a low-leverage role for the rest of the season.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Contract selected by Orioles

    Valdez's contract was selected from Triple-A Norfolk on Tuesday.

    Valdez was outrighted to Norfolk in late August, and he posted a 1.42 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in 12.2 innings across nine relief appearances in the minors since then. The right-hander has eight saves in the majors this year, but he recorded a 6.65 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in 21.2 innings across his last 15 appearances prior to being sent to Norfolk, so he'll likely pitch mainly in low-leverage situations late in the season.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Clears waivers

    The Orioles outrighted Valdez to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday after he cleared waivers, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

    Unsurprisingly, none of MLB's other 29 teams were willing to put in a waiver claim for a 36-year-old journeyman reliever who submitted a 5.76 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 45.1 innings in the big leagues before Baltimore designated him for assignment last week. Since he no longer possesses a 40-man roster spot, Valdez will face an uphill battle to earn another call-up to Baltimore before the season ends.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Designated for assignment

    Valdez was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Friday.

    Valdez surprisingly emerged to record his first three career saves in 2020 and saved eight more games in the early part of this year during his age-36 season, but he hasn't been good enough for high-leverage opportunities since, struggling to a 5.76 ERA in 45.1 innings. He's allowed at least one run in five of his last six outings, and the Orioles have evidently seen enough. They'll drop the veteran from the roster to give innings to younger options down the stretch, including 28-year-old Chris Ellis, who was claimed off waivers from the Rays on Friday.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Struggling again

    Valdez has given up six runs in his last six innings.

    In that span, the reliever has given up 10 hits, four of which have been home runs. The good news is Valdez hasn't walked a batter in that span after issuing four free passes in an 8.2-inning scoreless streak immediately following the All-Star break. The 36-year-old has a 5.82 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 42:12 K:BB in 43.1 innings, and he's mainly seen low-leverage work in his recent appearances.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: On scoreless streak

    Valdez extended his scoreless streak to 8.2 innings Monday.

    The 36-year-old has allowed six hits and four walks in that span, but he has successfully worked out of trouble lately. Valdez's good run of pitching came on the heels of a skid in which he allowed nine runs in five innings. He's seen mostly low-leverage work lately, and his season ratios sit at a 5.30 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 37:12 K:BB through 37.1 innings overall.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Logs three scoreless innings

    Valdez allowed three hits and struck out two over three innings in Friday's 9-2 loss to Kansas City.

    Valdez was utilized in a long-relief capacity after starter Keegan Akin struggled through three innings. This was Valdez's first scoreless outing since June 9, although he missed time with a lower-back strain during that span. It's unclear what kind of role the right-hander will have going forward -- he's logged eight saves this season but none since May 10. He's posted a 6.25 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 33:8 K:BB across 31.2 innings overall.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Returns from injured list

    Valdez (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday.

    Valdez landed on the shelf with a lower-back strain June 21 and will rejoin the Orioles without requiring a rehab assignment. The veteran righty is 8-for-12 in save chances with a 5.74 ERA and 1.65 WHIP this season. He could remain in the mix for high-leverage spots, but Paul Fry and Cole Sulser could be first up for saves since they have pitched better overall.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Nearing return

    Valdez (back) could be reinstated from the 10-day injured list as early as Sunday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

    Valdez has been dealing with a lower-back strain recently, but he's apparently feeling better and could rejoin the Orioles in the coming days. If the right-hander isn't activated ahead of Sunday's series finale against the Angels, he could return to action early next week when the Orioles return home to face the Blue Jays. Valdez had posted an 11.17 ERA and 2.17 WHIP in 9.2 innings across his last 10 relief appearances prior to his injury.
