Diamondbacks' Jesus Liranzo: With D-backs on minors pact
Liranzo signed a minor-league contract with Arizona earlier this month.
He pitched in the upper levels of the minors with the Pirates in 2019 and then joined the Giants for 2020 but never made it to the majors. The 26-year-old reliever was initially assigned to the AZL, but he should spend the bulk of the year in the upper levels of the minors.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jesus Liranzo: Removed from 40-man roster
Liranzo was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Monday.
Liranzo owns a 5.85 ERA in 67.2 innings at the Triple-A level, walking 15.8 percent of opposing batters. He'll make way on the 40-man roster for Yefry Ramirez, who was acquired in a trade with Baltimore on Monday.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jesus Liranzo: Optioned to minors
The Pirates optioned Liranzo to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
Liranzo had an unremarkable showing at Triple-A a season ago, compiling a 5.00 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 47:31 K:BB in 45 innings. He'll need to show significant improvement in the minors before the Pirates give him an extended look in the big-league bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jesus Liranzo: Heads to Triple-A
Liranzo was promoted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.
Claimed off waivers in April, Liranzo has impressed for Double-A Altoona so far this season, tossing 12 scoreless innings with an 18:3 K:BB. If he can maintain that momentum with Indianapolis, the 23-year-old could make his big-league debut later this season.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jesus Liranzo: Heading to Pirates
Liranzo was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Thursday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.
The young right-hander was acquired by the Dodgers on Monday and designated for assignment just a day later. The Pirates decided to scoop him up off waivers and will send him to Double-A Altoona. Liranzo has 141 strikeouts over the past two seasons in the minors, but his control is a bit shaky.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Jesus Liranzo: Designated for assignment
Liranzo was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Liranzo has been cast off the Dodgers' 40-man roster just one day after being acquired from the Orioles. The 23-year-old spent all of 2017 with Double-A Bowie, posting a 4.85 ERA and 1.49 WHIP across 65 innings. He'll likely report to Double-A Tulsa if he passes through waivers untouched....

Orioles' Jesus Liranzo: Acquired by Dodgers
Liranzo was traded to the Dodgers from the Orioles in exchange for Luis Ysla on Monday.
To make room for Liranzo on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers placed Tom Koehler (shoulder) on the 60-day DL. Liranzo played at Double-A Bowie for the duration of the 2017 season. Over 31 games (65 innings) he pieced together a 4.85 ERA and 1.49 WHIP. Liranzo will report to Double-A Tulsa after joining the Dodgers, where he could be used out of the bullpen or as an occasional starter.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Jesus Liranzo: Sent off 40-man
Liranzo was designated for assignment Thursday.
The Orioles made a flurry of roster moves prior to Thursday's Opening Day contest against the Twins. Liranzo will likely return to Double-A Bowie unless claimed off waivers by another organization in the coming days.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Jesus Liranzo: Sent back to Double-A
The Orioles optioned Liranzo to Double-A Bowie on March 7, Peter Schmuck and Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Following Liranzo's demotion, manager Buck Showalter noted that the 23-year-old will handle the same pitching schedule that he faced last season with Bowie. That program consisted of Liranzo starting and pitching around three innings, then working with the coaching during a between-starts bullpen session to work on his delivery and control. Showalter is hoping that Liranzo's unconventional schedule yields better results than it did last season, when the right-hander rung up a 4.85 ERA and 1.49 WHIP across 65 frames.... See More ...

Orioles' Jesus Liranzo: Sporting high walk rate at Double-A
Liranzo has struggled in 13 games this season with Double-A Bowie, posting an unsightly 6.30 ERA and 1.70 WHIP over 20 innings.
The Orioles added Liranzo to the 40-man roster in November to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Last year, he posted an impressive 1.87 ERA with 66 strikeouts over 53 combined innings with Low-A Delmarva and Double-A Bowie. The 22-year-old has the tools for potentially becoming a big-league closer, but his current 6.8 BB/9 makes it clear as to what Liranzo needs to work on before jumping levels.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Jesus Liranzo: Command demons continue to loom
Liranzo, in his first walk-free performance of the year, allowed one run on two hits over two innings in Tuesday's game with Double-A Bowie.
The 22-year-old prospect has struggled with his command early on. Liranzo owns a 7:8 K:BB through seven innings (five games) to go alongside an ugly 2.14 WHIP. It was control problems that plagued the right-hander last season at the Rookie level, too. The O's think highly of Liranzo, but he'll need to rid himself of the wildness before being considered for the big-league bullpen.... See More ... See Less
