  • Phillies' David Paulino: DFA'd Saturday

    The Phillies designated Paulino for assignment Saturday.

    Paulino struggled Saturday in his first big-league appearance of 2021, allowing a pair of runs on three hits in two innings of relief. The righty has struggled at Triple-A as well, so he doesn't figure to be a hot commodity on waivers and may find himself back in Lehigh Valley in a couple days.

  • Phillies' David Paulino: Joins big-league bullpen

    Paulino's contract was selected by the Phillies on Thursday.

    Paulino owns a 5.48 ERA in 42.2 major-league innings, the last of which came back in 2018. He's been fine but hardly dominant in 51.2 frames for Triple-A Lehigh Valley this season, posting a 4.35 and a 25.2 percent strikeout rate. Nick Maton was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Phillies' David Paulino: Signs MiLB deal with Phillies

    Paulino signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Thursday.

    Paulino failed to find a spot with any team in 2020 after being released by the Blue Jays in August of 2019, but he'll get to compete for a role with Philadelphia in 2021. The 26-year-old made brief appearances in the majors over three seasons, posting a 5.48 ERA and 42:12 K:BB over 42.2 innings across 16 appearances (seven starts). Given his past experience in the big leagues, Paulino figures to get the chance to work with the major-league coaching staff during spring training.

  • David Paulino: Released by Blue Jays

    Paulino (undisclosed) was released by the Blue Jays on Monday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

    Paulino, who was acquired from the Astros in the Roberto Osuna trade last season, was cut loose after being designated for assignment last week and subsequently passing through waivers untouched. The right-hander has been sidelined since mid-June with an undisclosed injury; he posted a 3.45 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 27:11 K:BB across 28.2 innings with Triple-A Buffalo prior to getting hurt.

  • Blue Jays' David Paulino: Removed from 40-man roster

    Paulino (undisclosed) was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

    Paulino, who has been sidelined since mid-June with an undisclosed injury, was dropped from Toronto's 40-man roster in order to clear room for Zack Godley, who was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move. Prior to getting injured, the 25-year-old Paulino compiled a 3.45 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 27:11 K:BB across 28.2 innings with Triple-A Buffalo.

  • Blue Jays' David Paulino: Shut down with injury

    Triple-A Buffalo placed Paulino on its 7-day injured list Friday with an undisclosed issue, Pat Malacaro of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports.

    T.J. Zeuch returned from a rehab assignment at High-A Dunedin to claim the opening in the Buffalo rotation vacated by Paulino's injury. Prior to getting shut down, Paulino, 25, posted a 3.45 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 28.2 innings across seven starts.

  • Blue Jays' David Paulino: Optioned to minors

    Paulino was optioned to minor-league camp Friday, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

    This comes as somewhat of a surprise, as manager Charlie Montoyo recently mentioned Paulino as a possible setup option for the Blue Jays following injuries to Ryan Tepera (elbow) and John Axford (elbow). The 25-year-old right-hander, who posted a 5.40 ERA and 10:3 K:BB through five frames this spring, figures to join the Blue Jays' bullpen at some point in 2019.

  • Blue Jays' David Paulino: Could get setup work

    Paulino struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning during Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.

    Paulino's path to a set-up job got clearer when Ryan Tepera (elbow) and John Axford (elbow) were both ruled out for the beginning of the season. The right-hander has a 10:3 K:BB through five spring frames, and he has the raw stuff to thrive in a late-inning role if he can maintain his focus.

  • Blue Jays' David Paulino: Stumbles against O's

    Paulino failed to record an out while giving up three runs on two hits and two walks in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles.

    The right-hander had been putting together a strong spring prior to this disaster, coming into Wednesday's game with a 0.00 ERA and 7:1 K:BB over three innings. Paulino, acquired from the Astros last year in the Roberto Osuna trade, is being looked at as a possible setup man for Ken Giles this season, and he has the big fastball to thrive in that role if he can stay healthy in 2019.

  • Blue Jays' David Paulino: Activated from DL; called up to majors

    Paulino (shoulder) was reinstated from the 7-day DL at Triple-A Buffalo and recalled by the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

    Paulino has yet to pitch in Toronto's organization after coming over in a trade from Houston in late July. The right-hander was initially placed on the minor-league disabled list in May, so don't expect the Blue Jays to use him a whole bunch as he gets back into game action.

  • Blue Jays' David Paulino: Traded to Blue Jays

    Paulino (shoulder) was sent to Toronto with Hector Perez and Ken Giles for Roberto Osuna (suspension) on Monday.

    Paulino is currently on the minor-league disabled list due to a shoulder injury he suffered in late May. He recently began a rehab assignment with Houston's Gulf Coast League club, and it appears as though he will be ready to return from the 7-day DL in the near future. Across six starts with Houston last year, Paulino logged a 6.52 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with 34 strikeouts in 29 innings. If he's able to return to full health soon, he could be a candidate to join Toronto's active roster in September.

  • Astros' David Paulino: On minor-league DL

    Paulino was placed on the minor-league disabled list over the weekend with a shoulder injury, the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The Astros don't believe the issue is anything that will require medical intervention, so they'll simply give Paulino some time off to rest and recover. The 24-year-old owns a disappointing 5.50 ERA across four starts (18 innings) with Triple-A Fresno this season, though he has struck out 23 batters over those outings.

  • Astros' David Paulino: Makes 2018 debut

    Paulino allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five over three innings for Triple-A Fresno on Monday.

    Paulino made his season debut after missing time with a shoulder injury, throwing 56 pitches for the Grizzlies. During what was a promising spring training -- one earned run allowed, 10 strikeouts, 10.2 innings -- Paulino "felt something" in his shoulder, per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle. The organization played it cautiously with the 6-foot-7 right-hander and had him stay back in Florida. He'll need to re-establish himself after missing half a season in 2017 when he served an 80-game suspension after testing positive for a banned substance.

  • Astros' David Paulino: Back from MiLB DL

    Paulino (undisclosed) will make his season debut Monday for Triple-A Fresno, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

    The pitching prospect began the season on the disabled list with the Grizzlies, but it seems like whatever was ailing him has passed. Paulino will take on the Salt Lake Bees (Triple-A affiliate of the Angels) in his inaugural appearance. He produced a 6.52 ERA and a 34:7 K:BB in 29 innings in the big leagues last season.

  • Astros' David Paulino: Hits minor-league disabled list

    Paulino was placed on the minor-league disabled list with an undisclosed injury, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

    Paulino is currently with Triple-A Fresno to begin the 2018 season. On top of failing to disclose the injury, the club didn't provide any sort of timetable for his return. Paulino started six games for the Astros last season, posting a 6.52 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with a 34:7 K:BB over 29 innings.

  • Astros' David Paulino: Sent to minor-league camp

    Paulino was sent to minor-league camp Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

    Paulino is expected to begin the season in the rotation at Triple-A Fresno. He owns a 6.25 ERA in 36 career major-league innings and missed 80 games last season while suspended for taking a banned substance. He could potentially be a solid starter down the road and could make at least a few starts for the big-league club again this season if and when injuries strike the Astros' rotation.

  • Astros' David Paulino: Working way back

    Paulino has fired 7.2 scoreless innings over three spring outings, Jerome Solomon of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Paulino, who was suspended 80 games last season after testing positive for a banned substance, is motivated this spring. He hasn't made any starts, but is getting multiple innings when he's called on to pitch. The Astros still view him as a starter and project him to develop into a quality one. What's uncertain is how much his development was impacted by his time off in 2017.

  • Astros' David Paulino: Healthy for spring training

    Paulino indicated Wednesday that he's recovered from September surgery to remove a bone spur from his pitching elbow, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    One of the top pitching prospects in the organization last season, Paulino's stock dipped a bit after he was tagged for a 6.52 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and eight home runs over 29 innings in six starts with the big club before he was handed an 80-game suspension in July for violating MLB's performance-enhancing drug policy. Paulino acknowledged that he used the illegal substance in large part to combat the effects of a nagging elbow injury, which surgery ultimately remedied. After missing out on important development time due to the suspension, Paulino isn't expected to break camp with the Astros and looks likely to open the season as a member of the rotation at Triple-A Fresno.
