Phillips Valdez: Cut loose by Colorado
The Rockies released Valdez on Tuesday.
Valdez has spent all of this season with Triple-A Albuquerque, posting an ugly 8.15 ERA and 49:41 K:BB over 67.1 innings. The 31-year-old holds a 4.56 ERA over parts of four major-league seasons and will now seek an opportunity elsewhere.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Phillips Valdez: Bid for roster spot ends
The Rockies reassigned Valdez to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.
Valdez, who logged a 4.41 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 16.1 innings of relief at the big-league level in Boston in 2022, joined the Rockies on a minor-league deal over the winter and was expected to compete for a spot in the Opening Day bullpen. The 31-year-old was ultimately unsuccessful in his bid for a roster spot after he was lit up over his 9.2 innings in Cactus League action, giving up 10 earned runs on 17 hits and four walks....

Rockies' Phillips Valdez: Gets opportunity with Colorado
Valdez signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Dec. 15 and is competing for a spot in Coloardo's Opening Day bullpen.
Though he doesn't possess a spot on the Rockies' 40-man roster, the 31-year-old right-hander should have a decent chance of breaking camp with the big club, given his past experience in the big leagues as well as the lackluster competition he faces for a bullpen role. Over his 13 appearances in the majors with Boston a season ago, Valdez logged a 4.41 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB in 16.1 innings.... See More ... See Less

Mariners' Phillips Valdez: Designated for assignment
Valdez was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Friday, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.
With Brian O'Keefe joining the 40-man roster to fill in for Curt Casali (paternity), Valdez is left as the Mariners' roster casualty. Valdez was claimed off waivers from Boston in July, and he has since recorded a 4.22 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in Triple-A Tacoma. Should he clear waivers, he will likely remain with the organization....

Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Designated for assignment

Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Sent down Friday
Valdez was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Friday.
Valdez spent nearly a week in the major-league bullpen and allowed three runs (zero earned) on four hits and a walk while failing to record a strikeout in three innings over two appearances. He'll head back to the minors after Garrett Whitlock (hip) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday.... See More ... See Less

Valdez was called up by the Red Sox on Saturday.
Valdez has already spent four separate stints in the big-league bullpen this season. He hasn't pitched well enough to stick around, recording a 5.40 ERA across 13.1 innings of work. He'll likely handle low-leverage innings during his time with the team.... See More ... See Less

Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Recalled from Triple-A
Valdez was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Saturday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
With Rich Hill (knee) landing on the injured list, Valdez will return to provide some extra depth out of the bullpen.

He could be sent down again next week when the Red Sox add a starter to replace Hill in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Sent out to minors
The Red Sox optioned Valdez to Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday.
Valdez will return to the minors after he made his lone relief appearance during his five-day stint with Boston in Tuesday's 6-1 win over Oakland.

Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Recalled by Boston
Valdez was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Friday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander was sent down Thursday, but he'll rejoin the major-league club a day later after Garrett Whitlock (hip) was placed on the 15-day injured list. Valdez has made 10 relief appearances for the Red Sox this year and has posted a 5.84 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 12.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Optioned to minors
Valdez was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Thursday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Valdez has spent a significant amount of time in Boston this season, but he'll return to the minors to make room for Hansel Robles (back), who was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move. Valdez has a poor 5.84 ERA across 12.1 innings in the majors, though his 3.71 FIP indicates that he's deserved better results.... See More ... See Less

Valdez was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Saturday.
Valdez was sent down at the beginning of May but will rejoin the major-league club after spending nearly a month in Worcester. He made six Triple-A appearances and posted a 1.17 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 7.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Demoted Sunday
Valdez was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Sunday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Valdez tossed eight scoreless innings over his first six relief appearances of the season, but he allowed seven runs in 2.1 innings over his last two outings. The right-hander will attempt to sort things out in the minors but will likely be an option to provide bullpen depth later in the year.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Makes fourth scoreless appearance
Valdez struck out one over 1.1 scoreless relief innings in Monday's 8-3 loss to Minnesota.
Valdez entered with one one and two out in the fifth inning and elicited a strikeout, then hurled a 1-2-3 sixth. It was the fourth scoreless appearance in four outings for the right-hander, who has allowed one hit and one walk while striking out eight in five innings. All four of his outings have come with Boston trailing, and there's no indication he'll be moved into a high-leverage role. Valdez will serve as a multi-inning reliever when needed, as he did 11 times in 28 appearances for the Red Sox in 2021.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Returns from COVID-19 injured list
Valdez was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Valdez missed much of September due to the virus. While he's now off the injured list, he isn't on the Red Sox's playoff roster, and his 5.85 ERA in 40 innings means he probably won't be added if Boston manages to come back from a 3-2 deficit and make the World Series. Franchy Cordero was designated for assignment to clear space for his return.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Walks two in rehab outing
Valdez (illness) allowed two walks while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning for Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday.
Valdez began a rehab assignment Wednesday and shouldn't need too many outings to get back up to speed. Boston's bullpen depth has been tested lately, so it's possible Valdez re-enters the mix before the end of the regular season. He's primarily served in a long-relief role for Boston.... See More ...

Red Sox's Phillips Valdez: Starts up rehab assignment
Valdez (illness) joined Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday to begin a rehab assignment, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
Valdez has been on the COVID-19 injured list since Sept. 12 after testing positive for the virus. Before being shut down due to the illness, Valdez had mostly pitched in low-leverage spots out of the Boston bullpen, so the team probably won't be eager to rush him back from the IL before the regular season comes to an end Sunday....
