  • Mets' Arodys Vizcaino: Makes return from Triple-A IL

    Vizcaino (undisclosed) struck out the side in a scoreless inning of relief Sunday in his return from Triple-A Syracuse's 7-day injured list.

    After battling elbow soreness in spring training, Vizcaino was cleared to rejoin the Syracuse bullpen early in the 2021 season, but he made just five appearances before being shut down in late May with an unspecified injury. After an absence of nearly three months, the 30-year-old returned to action Sunday in dominant fashion. Since he doesn't possess a spot on the 40-man roster, Vizcaino will likely need to string together several quality performances before the Mets consider promoting him from Triple-A.

  • Mets' Arodys Vizcaino: Joining minor-league camp

    Vizcaino (elbow) was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday.

    Vizcaino returned to the mound Sunday after battling elbow soreness over the past week, and he allowed no hits and one walk while striking out one in one scoreless inning. However, the right-hander will be sent to minor-league camp ahead of the regular season and won't break camp with the Mets after he made just two relief appearances this spring.

  • Mets' Arodys Vizcaino: Battling sore elbow

    Vizcaino has been shut down for about a week due to soreness in his elbow, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    It's a tough break for the oft-injured right-hander as he attempts to make a comeback. Vizcaino was showing good velocity this spring but had pitched only one inning in Grapefruit League action, and the late shutdown likely ends any chance the 30-year-old might have had of winning a spot in the Mets' bullpen. If the non-roster invitee sticks with the organization, he could head to the team's alternate training site to begin the season.

  • Mets' Arodys Vizcaino: Showing good velocity

    Vizcaino has been able to hit 96 mph with his fastball this spring, Anthony DiComo of reports. "He feels strong," Mets manager Luis Rojas said Sunday. "He wants to get out there. The breaking pitches, they've looked nasty in the bullpens."

    The veteran reliever hasn't pitched in a big-league game since April 2019 due to shoulder surgery and has yet to see any Grapefruit League action this spring, but if Vizcaino demonstrates he still has good stuff he has an outside chance of breaking camp in the Mets' bullpen, or at least showcasing himself for other teams. Vizcaino has exactly 50 career saves and posted a 2.53 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 110:39 K:BB over 99.2 innings since 2017.

  • Mets' Arodys Vizcaino: Joins Mets on minors deal

    Vizcaino signed a minor-league deal with the Mets on Wednesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    The 29-year-old has appeared in only four games since the start of the 2019 season due to shoulder surgery, and he'll now receive a chance to restart his career in New York. Vizcaino served as a high-leverage option from 2015 to 2018 in Atlanta, recording 49 saves and 21 holds with a 2.79 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 180 games. The right-hander will need a strong showing in spring training to have a chance of making the Mets' Opening Day roster.

  • Mariners' Arodys Vizcaino: Shipped to Seattle

    Vizcaino (shoulder) was traded from the Braves to the 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

    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

    Vizcaino underwent right shoulder surgery Wednesday and will miss the remainder of the regular season.

    This is a tough blow for the 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

    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.
