  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Reinstated by Reds

    Cessa (back) was activated from the injured list Tuesday. Cessa missed just shy of four weeks with his injury, but he is ready to resume pitching for the Reds. He struggled a bit before landing on the injured list, so he may be forced to work his way back into a late-inning role.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Close to returning

    Cessa (back) is close to returning from the IL and won't need a rehab stint, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. Cessa has struggled this season, posting a 6.68 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over 31 innings, after being a nice addition last season down the stretch run. However, with the Reds' bullpen decimated, he still might pick up a few holds as the campaign winds down.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Dealing with back injury

    Cessa was placed on the 15-day injured list with a muscle strain in his back Thursday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Cessa was originally believed to have suffered an oblique or intercostal injury, though Cincinnati later clarified the exact nature of the issue. He'll be out until at least the third week of July.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Lands on 15-day IL

    Cessa was placed on the 15-day injured list with a left side injury Thursday. Cessa exited Thursday's matinee against Pittsburgh due to his side injury, and the issue will keep him out until after the All-Star break. The right-hander joins a lengthy list of Reds relievers on the injured list, while Robert Dugger was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Exits with injury

    Cessa was removed from Thursday's game against the Pirates with an apparent injury, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Cessa induced a groundout and walked a batter during the seventh inning Thursday before exiting with the athletic trainer. He should be considered day-to-day until his status is updated.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Starting Thursday

    Cessa will start Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The 29-year-old has covered 2.2 innings across his first two appearances out of the bullpen this season, so he's likely serving as an opener for Reiver Sanmartin, who was previously scheduled to start Thursday. Cessa was believed to be in the mix for save chances, but Tony Santillan and Art Warren have picked up the first two saves of the year for the Reds.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: In ninth-inning mix

    Cessa is a candidate for saves in Cincinnati this season according to manager David Bell, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Lucas Sims will miss the start of the season with an elbow injury, and Sims is not guaranteed to close once healthy. Cessa had a 2.51 ERA last season, though his 20.7 percent strikeout rate would be quite low for a closer.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Settles on $1.8 million

    Cessa signed a one-year, $1.8 million contract with the Reds on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports. Cessa was acquired from the Yankees last season and had a strong campaign between the two clubs with a 2.51 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 54:19 K:BB over 64.2 innings. The 29-year-old could take on a higher-leverage role for the Reds this season.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Gets hold in big spot

    Cessa came on in relief of Luis Castillo on Friday night and threw 1.2 scoreless innings to earn his fourth hold of the season. Since joining the Reds, Cessa has a 1.42 ERA and 0.84 WHIP over 19 innings. He got a little lucky Friday night, allowing a few hard-hit balls, but he's provided everything the Reds have asked since coming over just before the trade deadline.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Picks up fourth win

    Cessa (4-2) allowed a walk and nothing more over 1.1 innings, nabbing the victory in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Marlins. Cessa entered the game with the bases full of Marlins and two outs, but got Lewis Brinson to fly out on one pitch. He then needed just 11 more pitches to get through a full inning of work. The victory is Cessa's first as a member of the Reds.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Shipped to Cincinnati

    Cessa and Justin Wilson were acquired by the Reds from the Yankees on Tuesday in exchange for a player to be named later. Cessa last pitched for the Yankees on July 22 and picked up a hold with a scoreless frame, and he'll now be heading to a new team. The right-hander has a 2.82 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 31:17 K:BB over 38.1 innings, and he could step into a higher-leverage role given Cincinnati's immense bullpen struggles this season

  • Yankees' Luis Cessa: Earns win in relief

    Cessa (3-1) earned the win Tuesday against the Phillies after tossing 1.1 scoreless innings, walking two and fanning one. Cessa might have allowed two baserunners, as he walked Bryce Harper in the fifth and Rhys Hoskins in the sixth, but he still got the job done while posting a second straight scoreless outing. The right-hander has been pitching at a high level over the last few weeks, going 3-1 with a 2.60 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP across 17.1 innings in 12 outings since the beginning of June.

  • Yankees' Luis Cessa: Posts first loss

    Cessa (1-1) lost Sunday at the hands of Boston, allowing two runs (one earned) on one hit and one walk in the Yankees' 6-5 defeat. Cessa came on for the 10th inning in a tie game and allowed a two-run single to Xander Bogaerts that ended up being the difference. The run was the first Cessa has allowed in six appearances as he remains a key member of the New York bullpen with a 3.09 ERA.

  • Yankees' Luis Cessa: Making mark out of bullpen

    Cessa has allowed only one earned run across 7.2 innings this season while racking up a 12:5 K:BB. The right-hander has issued five walks in the early going, but he has also racked up 12 strikeouts across 7.2 frames. That's a surprisingly high number given the fact that Cessa has never averaged a strikeout per inning in any of his five previous big-league seasons. He is primarily used in middle innings, so Cessa isn't a fantasy target despite his strong performance thus far.

  • Yankees' Luis Cessa: Flailing in spring action

    Cessa has served up three home runs across 7.1 spring innings, and he has posted a 7.36 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 10:2 K:BB. Cessa's K:BB ratio is promising, but he'll need to keep the ball in the park to have a successful season. The right-hander has had issues with the long ball in the past -- he registered a HR/9 of 1.56 or higher three times between 2016 and 2019 before improving to a 0.83 HR/9 last season.

  • Yankees' Luis Cessa: Comes to terms with Yankees

    Cessa agreed to a one-year, $1 million contract with the Yankees on Wednesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. The 28-year-old reliever logged a career-best 3.32 ERA along with a 1.25 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 21.2 innings (16 appearances) last season. He should continue to work in low-to-mid-leverage situations in 2021.

  • Yankees' Luis Cessa: Notches first save

    Cessa earned the save in Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Mets, retiring the only batter he faced via strikeout. After the Yankees took a four-run lead on a grand slam by Gary Sanchez in the top of the eighth inning, Jonathan Holder allowed a run in the bottom of the frame. When the Mets subsequently loaded the bases, the Yankees summoned Cessa to get the final out. He worked a 3-2 count to Wilson Ramos before striking the pinch hitter out. The save was the fourth of Cessa's career and first this season. He isn't likely to get many additional chances given the presence of Aroldis Chapman on the roster.

  • Yankees' Luis Cessa: Brought back from IL

    The Yankees activated Cessa from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Phillies. Cessa was revealed July 4 to have tested positive for COVID-19, but just days later, he declared himself asymptomatic. The workouts he missed while he was quarantining and waiting to clear MLB's COVID-19 protocol still prevented Cessa from cracking the Opening Day roster, but he's now had sufficient time to get ramped up. He'll assume a spot in the bullpen and should serve as a useful multi-inning option for the Yankees.

  • Yankees' Luis Cessa: Ready to return

    Cessa (illness) could be activated as soon as Tuesday, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. Cessa remains on the COVID-19 injured list and has been working out at the Yankees' alternate training site in Scranton. He threw 40 pitches in a simulated game Saturday and should be back in the big leagues soon, where he's expected to fill a relief role.

  • Yankees' Luis Cessa: Expected to return soon

    Cessa (illness) threw a two-inning live batting practice session Saturday and is expected to rejoin the Yankees within the next few days, James Wagner of The New York Times reports. Cessa missed most of summer camp due to a positive COVID-19 test, but he's now been back with the team for two weeks. He should be ready for a low-leverage relief role at some point next week.
