Mariners' Pedro Severino: Finds work with Seattle
Severino signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Tuesday and was assigned to Triple-A Tacoma.
Severino attended spring training with the Padres and accepted an assignment at Triple-A El Paso after failing to win a spot on the Friars' Opening Day roster. He performed well at El Paso to the tune of a .286/.400/.476 slash line in 75 plate appearances, but with a promotion to the big leagues not imminent, he was granted his release from San Diego last week. Severino quickly caught on with Seattle, but he'll still likely find himself no better than third on the organizational depth chart at catcher behind Cal Raleigh and Tom Murphy.... See More ...

Pedro Severino: Released by San Diego
Severino asked for and was granted his release from the Padres on Wednesday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Severino had registered an impressive .876 OPS through 75 plate appearances at Triple-A El Paso, but he wasn't getting regular playing time and should be able to find a better opportunity elsewhere. The 29-year-old journeyman catcher inked a minor-league pact with San Diego in December.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Pedro Severino: Headed to San Diego
Severino signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Severino appeared in eight games for the Brewers in 2022, going 4-for-18 with two doubles and an RBI. He'd likely need to beat out either Luis Campusano or Austin Nola to crack the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Pedro Severino: Becomes free agent
Severino was released by the Brewers on Friday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.
Severino joined Milwaukee on a one-year, $1.9 million deal for 2022, but his season never got off the ground after he was handed an 80-game suspension in early April for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. The 29-year-old appeared in only eight MLB games and spent the rest of the campaign at Triple-A Nashville, where he finished with a .308/.349/.496 slash line in 126 plate appearences.... See More ...

Brewers' Pedro Severino: Outrighted off roster
Severino cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Friday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Severino looked set to serve as the Brewers' backup catcher this season but missed the first 80 games of the year due to a PED suspension. He played infrequently upon his return and was designated for assignment Wednesday after going 4-for-18 at the plate.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Pedro Severino: Designated for assignment
Severino was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Wednesday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Severino was reinstated from his suspension at the beginning of July, but he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster since both Omar Narvaez and Victor Caratini are remaining with the team following the trade deadline. Severino appeared in just eight games for the Brewers and went 4-for-18 with two doubles, an RBI, three walks and seven strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Pedro Severino: Returning from suspension
The Brewers reinstated Severino (suspension) from the restricted list Sunday.
Severino will be joining the big club for the first time this season after he was handed an 80-game suspension shortly before Opening Day due to a violation of MLB's performance-enhancing drugs policy. Prior to his suspension, Severino had been slated to serve as the primary backup to Omar Narvaez, but that role will seemingly belong to Victor Caratini moving forward. As a result, Severino has dabbled at first base during his recent 12-game rehab assignment between Double-A Biloxi and Triple-A Nashville, and he'll also be an option at designated hitter if the Brewers want to get another right-handed bat in the lineup. Severino is unlikely to pick up more than a couple of starts per week.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Pedro Severino: Rehab shifts to Triple-A
Severino (suspension) had his rehab assignment transferred to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.
Severino began a rehab assignment at Double-A Biloxi last week and hit .435 with a homer, four runs, an RBI and a stolen base over six games. He's eligible to return from his suspension during the first week in July and has been getting some looks at first base during his rehab stint.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Pedro Severino: Trying first base
Severino (suspension) played first base in his first rehab game for Double-A Biloxi on Saturday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.
He hasn't played first base before in the majors, but as a right-handed hitter with power, it's possible Severino could get looks at first base when the Brewers face lefties. This is more a testament to the fact the Brewers like the production they have gotten from Omar Narvaez and Victor Caratini at catcher, and Severino doesn't have any minor-league options remaining. Severino is a career .262/.324/.441 hitter against lefties, good for a 102 wRC+. He is due back from his suspension the first week of July.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Pedro Severino: Beginning rehab assignment
Severino (suspension) will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Biloxi on Friday.
Severino was issued an 80-game suspension in early April after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, and he isn't eligible to rejoin the Brewers until early July. However, he'll work on his conditioning in the minors over the next few weeks in hopes that he'll be able to be added to the active roster as soon as he's eligible.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Pedro Severino: Goes on restricted list
The Brewers placed Severino (suspension) on the restricted list Tuesday.
The transaction was made Tuesday after Severino was handed an 80-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. Severino won't count toward the Brewers' 40-man roster while he serves the suspension. The Brewers have since acquired Victor Caratini from the Padres to serve as their No. 2 catcher behind Omar Narvaez.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Pedro Severino: Hit with 80-game ban
Severino was issued an 80-game suspension Tuesday after testing positive for Clomiphene, a performance-enhancing substance, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Severino was signed in November to back up Omar Narvaez behind the plate, but he'll now be ineligible to play until July 3, barring an appeal of the suspension. Mario Feliciano and Brett Sullivan are the other catchers on Milwaukee's 40-man roster, but they have a single MLB plate appearance between them, so it's possible the team will look to bring in outside help at the position....

Brewers' Pedro Severino: Swinging bat well this spring
Severino went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's spring game against the Mariners.
Severino has been seeing it well in his first spring training with the Brewers, going 10-for-23 (.435) with two homers, nine RBI and a 6:2 BB:K. He is slated to open the season backing up starting catcher Omar Narvaez, but he should see a fair amount of starts against left-handed pitchers, having posted an .818 OPS over 161 plate appearances against southpaws last season....

Severino signed a one-year, $1.9 million contract with the Brewers on Sunday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

He'll land a major-league contract with Milwaukee after he slashed .248/.308/.383 with 11 home runs, 46 RBI and 32 runs last year.

Orioles' Pedro Severino: Loses spot on 40-man roster
The Orioles outrighted Severino to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.comreports.
Severino served as Baltimore's primary catcher during the 2021 campaign, but the team won't carry him on the 40-man roster into the offseason after posting a .248/.308/.383 slash line with 11 homers, 46 RBI and 32 runs in 113 games.
