  • 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: 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: 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.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Placed on 10-day IL

    Valdez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a lower back strain Monday. Valdez gave up two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one in one inning during Sunday's loss to the Orioles, and it's possible that his injury contributed to his struggles. Whether he's forced to spend more than the minimum of 10 days on the injured list remains to be seen, but right-hander Travis Lakins was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Seeing lower-leverage work

    Valdez has not posted a save or hold in his last 10 outings. Valdez opened the year as Baltimore's closer, but those duties have more recently gone to Paul Fry. Instead, Valdez has seen lower-leverage work. The change in role hasn't gone very well -- since his last save May 10, the right-hander has an 11.00 ERA, 2.44 WHIP and 9:2 K:BB in nine innings. He pitched a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 14-1 loss to the Mets, but without any promise of save chances, he carries little fantasy appeal.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Meltdown in eighth inning

    Valdez allowed three runs on three hits in one-third of an inning in Monday's 8-3 loss to Minnesota. He was charged with a blown save. The 36-year-old avoided the loss Monday, but he allowed two inherited runners to score and put another three batters on base. Tyler Wells then proceeded to allow one of Valdez's runners to score as Baltimore's bullpen wasted a good start from John Means. In May, Valdez has yielded seven runs in 5.2 innings across seven appearances. The right-hander is 8-for-12 in save chances with a 3.93 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 21:4 K:BB across 18.1 innings overall. With rumors of a potential move away from closing duties, Valdez hasn't done much lately to show he should stay in a ninth-inning role.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Role may be adjusted

    Valdez is being considered for set-up work, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports. This is not a performance-based shift for Valdez, who has gone 8-for-11 in save chances with a 2.65 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 21:4 K:BB. Instead, it comes down to Baltimore's lack of effective right-handed relievers. Nothing official has been announced for Valdez in regard to his role, but it wouldn't be surprising to see some ninth-inning duties given to southpaw Paul Fry in the near future. Hunter Harvey (oblique) could also become a factor in the closer conversation when he returns.

  • Orioles' Cesar Valdez: Picks up save No. 8

    Valdez secured the save after striking out two over a scoreless inning Monday against Boston. Valdez retired the side in order in the ninth, fanning two and inducing a lineout to center field. The closer has surrendered just two runs in 13 appearances so far this season and has successfully converted eight of 10 save chances. He also owns a strong 17:3 K:BB across 14.2 innings of work.
