Burgos was reassigned Tuesday to the minor-league side of Marlins camp, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Burgos landed a minor-league contract (with a major-league camp invite) from the Marlins in January after a couple of strong seasons in Mexico. The 32-year-old right-hander figures to begin the 2023 campaign in the bullpen at Triple-A Jacksonville.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Enrique Burgos: Latches on with Marlins
Burgos signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Friday.

Enrique Burgos: Released by Tigers
Burgos (groin) was released by the Tigers on Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
The veteran right-hander was looking to earn a spot in the Tigers' Opening Day bullpen before a groin injury derailed his spring training. Burgos will look to get healthy and find work elsewhere, though his recent struggles (5.27 ERA across 68.1 major-league innings over the past two seasons) will likely force him to settle for a minor-league deal....

Tigers' Enrique Burgos: Shipped to minors camp
The Tigers reassigned Burgos (groin) to their minor-league camp Tuesday.
Burgos had been attending camp as a non-roster invitee and was vying for a spot in the Detroit bullpen, but his hopes may have been spoiled after he suffered a right groin strain in his most recent Grapefruit League outing Monday against the Nationals. Per Chris McCosky of The Detroit News, manager Ron Gardenhire relayed that "it's going to be a week-plus" with regards to Burgos' recovery timetable, so look for the right-hander to open the season on the disabled list at Triple-A Toledo....

Tigers' Enrique Burgos: Out with groin strain
Burgos was pulled from Monday's game against the Nationals with a groin strain, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Burgos suffered the injury after slipping on the mound. The recovery timetable is not yet clear, though the 27-year-old is a long shot to make the Opening Day roster. He owns a solid 27.4 percent strikeout rate in 68.1 career innings at the the major-league level, but his 5.27 ERA and 12.7 percent walk rate are too high for him to be an important part of a big-league bullpen....

Tigers' Enrique Burgos: Exits with apparent injury
Burgos exited Monday's game against the Nationals with an apparent leg injury, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Burgos appeared to injury his knee after slipping during his delivery. He is in camp as a non-roster invitee and is a long shot to make the Opening Day roster, having recorded a 5.60 ERA at the Triple-A level last year. An injury certainly wouldn't help his chances.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Enrique Burgos: Joins Tigers on minor-league deal
Burgos signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Tuesday which includes an invitation to spring training.
Burgos failed to make a major-league appearance last season for the first time since 2014, instead splitting time between Arizona and Atlanta's Triple-A affiliates and struggling to a 5.60 ERA and 39:26 K:BB across 35.1 innings. The 27-year-old has flashed high strikeout potential in the past -- fanning an impressive 82 batters in 68.1 innings during a pair of major-league stints with the Diamondbacks in 2015 and 2016 -- but he'll need to lower his walk rate (5.9 career BB/9) if he wants to make it back to the big-league bullpen next season....

Braves' Enrique Burgos: Designated for assignment
Burgos was designated for assignment by the Braves on Wednesday.
Burgos hasn't competed in a major-league game all season and he's been struggling to find command in the minors since being dealt to Atlanta in May. The right-hander was officially taken off the 40-man Wednesday while catcher David Freitas took his place and joined the active roster prior to the club's doubleheader against Philadelphia. During 22.1 innings of work with Triple-A Gwinnett this year, Burgos has posted a 5.24 ERA and 1.25 WHIP out of the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Enrique Burgos: Dealt to Braves
Burgos was acquired for cash considerations by the Braves on Saturday.
DFA'd by the Diamondbacks earlier in the week, the right-handed Burgos has found a new landing spot in Atlanta. Burgos features a mid-90s fastball with an ability to rack up strikeouts, as evidenced by his 9.36 K/9 with the Diamondbacks last season, but command issues likely led to him being designated for assignment. If he can cut down his walk rate, Burgos could make his way up to the Braves later in the summer.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos: DFA'd by Diamondbacks
Burgos was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Monday.
Burgos owned just a 6.23 ERA through 13 innings with Triple-A this season before he was ousted from the 40-man roster to clear room for Reymond Fuentes, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A to serve as a temporary replacement for A.J. Pollock (groin). The 26-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors this season, though he owns a combined 5.27 ERA over the past two seasons with the big club (68.1 innings). He'll likely report back to Triple-A if he clears waivers.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos: Optioned to Triple-A
Burgos was optioned to Triple-A Reno on March 17.
He will likely be one of the first relievers called upon when the Diamondbacks' bullpen needs reinforcements, but is unlikely to get into the high-leverage mix.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos: Shaky again Wednesday
Burgos was charged with four runs without recording an out after entering in the ninth inning of Wednesday's win over the Braves.
With the Diamondbacks up four runs, Burgos came on and promptly gave up a home run. He then walked two batters and gave up an RBI single before manager Chip Hale decided he had seen enough. Arizona would rally to win in 11 innings, but Burgos' performance is concerning. The back end of Arizona's bullpen is a mess right now, and it's unclear who might get the next save opportunity....

Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos: Blows save but vultures win against Atlanta
Burgos (1-1) blew a save as he allowed a run on two hits in the ninth inning Monday against Atlanta but picked up the win via Paul Goldschmidt's walk-off home run.
Burgos is now just 1-for-4 in save opportunities over his last four outings. He was undone by his second home run in that span Monday, a solo blast by Freddie Freeman. Jake Barrett has been struggling too, but Burgos isn't doing much to show the Diamondbacks he deserves high-leverage innings.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos: Blows the save Thursday
Burgos was saddled with his first blown save of the year in Thursday's loss to the Padres.
Fellow reliever Jake Barrett started the eighth and proceeded to load the bases. Burgos was called on to get the final out with Arizona up a run, but he gave up a three-run double to Alex Dickerson before retiring the final batter of the inning via strikeout. Barrett has struggled mightily in recent weeks, so despite blowing the save Thursday, Burgos could be in line for more save opportunities moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos: Recalled from Triple-A
Burgos was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Saturday.
It could be a short stay for Burgos with Nick Ahmed (paternity) possibly missing as few as three games. Burgos was up for two weeks during his first stint with the big club from late April to early May, allowing six runs on seven hits and four walks in 6.2 innings. Look for Burgos to continue working exclusively in low-leverage spots.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos: Optioned to Triple-A Reno Sunday
Burgos was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Sunday.
Burgos was called up in late April to replace Silvino Bracho's spot, who was optioned down to Triple-A Reno simultaneously. Burgos has since been a reliever for the Diamondbacks, pitching a total of 6.2 innings in seven games for an ERA of 8.1 and four strikeouts. He is used to provide organizational bullpen depth....

Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos: Recalled by Arizona on Saturday
Burgos was recalled by the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Burgos was recalled Saturday to take the spot in the bullpen vacated by Silvino Bracho, who was optioned down to Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move. The 6-4, 250-pound Burgos appeared in 30 games with the Diamondbacks last season, striking out 39 batters in 27.0 innings of work, but his ERA was an undesirable 4.67 in that span.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos: Competing for bullpen spot to start the season
Burgos is a candidate for a final spot in the team's bullpen to start the season, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Burgos is expected to battle Jake Barrett, Silvino Bracho and Evan Marshall for the opening, though there could be two spots available if teammate Josh Collmenter starts the season on the DL. The 25-man roster needs to be finalized by 9 a.m. Sunday. Burgos has a 3.24 ERA and 12 strikeouts across 8.1 spring training innings.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Enrique Burgos: Pitching well with new splitter
Burgos has added a splitter this spring and is pitching with confidence, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
In 7.1 spring innings, Burgos has allowed one run while striking out 10. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale praised the righty's new pitch and said Burgos has "a different look on his face" in camp. Burgos, who had a 4.67 ERA in 27 innings for the Diamondbacks last year, is competing for one of the final spots in the bullpen, along with Jake Barrett, Evan Marshall, Silvino Bracho and Kaleb Fleck....
