  • Pirates' Johan Oviedo: Sent to Pittsburgh

    The Pirates acquired Oviedo and infielder Malcom Nunez from the Cardinals on Monday in exchange for left-hander Jose Quintana and right-hander Chris Stratton.

    Oviedo has filled a versatile role for the Cardinals, posting a 3.20 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 26:7 K:BB across 25.1 innings. He should function as a multi-inning reliever in Pittsburgh's bullpen going forward.

  • Pirates' Johan Oviedo: Optioned to Triple-A

    Oviedo was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.

    Oviedo was effective over his 25.1 big-league innings with the Cardinals this season, but the Pirates want to work with him in the minors before adding him to their major-league roster. Expect him to be recalled at some point before the season comes to a close.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Picks up second win

    Oviedo (2-1) allowed a run on two hits and a walk with a strikeout in 1.1 innings, earning the win Tuesday over the Dodgers.

    Oviedo followed opener Jordan Hicks in this contest. Through five innings in July, Oviedo has yielded two runs, six hits and a walk with six strikeouts. The right-hander owns a 3.32 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 21:6 K:BB in 21.2 innings overall, though he's likely to remain in a multi-inning relief role. He's yet to record a save or a hold in 11 appearances.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Moves past hand issue

    Oviedo (hand) struck out two and worked around two hits over 1.1 scoreless innings out of the bullpen Sunday in the Cardinals' 4-3 win over the Phillies.

    Oviedo had been pulled from his previous relief appearance July 4 against Atlanta after he was struck on his pitching hand by a comebacker, but a few days of rest was all he needed to heal up. With Sunday's scoreless outing, the 24-year-old lowered his ERA to 3.10 over 20.1 innings at the big-league level this season.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Leaves with injury

    Oviedo exited Monday's game against Atlanta after being struck on the right hand by a line drive, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. He struck out two over 1.2 scoreless innings in relief before departing.

    Oviedo was immediately sent for further testing, and his X-rays came back negative. He'll be considered day-to-day until further notice.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Picks up win Wednesday

    Oviedo (1-1) struck out three over 2.1 perfect innings to earn the win in Wednesday's 5-4 victory over the Brewers.

    Oviedo relieved starter Adam Wainwright with two outs and two runners in scoring position in the fifth inning. He escaped that jam with a groundout, then continued to pitch well in the sixth and seventh while the Cardinals pulled ahead. Oviedo has now gone 6.1 innings without allowing a run while working in a multi-inning relief role. The 24-year-old right-hander has a 3.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB across 15 innings in six outings (one start). He'll likely continue to mop up innings when the Cardinals' starters have short outings.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Works out of bullpen

    Oviedo made his most recent appearance out of the bullpen Wednesday in the Cardinals' 11-3 loss to the Rays, striking out three over 2.2 innings while giving up one run on three hits and one walk.

    After starting in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cubs during his previous appearance June 4, Oviedo served as a primary pitcher behind opener Packy Naughton in Wednesday's contest. With all of Jack Flaherty (shoulder), Steven Matz (shoulder) and Jordan Hicks (forearm) stuck on the injured list, the Cardinals could turn to the Naughton/Oviedo tandem to cover the bulk of the innings in Monday's series opener with the Pirates.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Hit with loss in Saturday's matinee

    Oviedo (0-1) took the loss in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs, giving up three runs on eight hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out five.

    Making his first appearance of the season in the big leagues, Oviedo tossed 103 pitches (67 strikes) but allowed a steady stream of baserunners, as Chicago had runners in scoring position in every inning. The right-hander may have pitched well enough to stick around for another turn through the rotation, but Steven Matz (shoulder) isn't far from rejoining the roster.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Starting Game 1

    Oviedo is starting the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Oviedo was called up by St. Louis on Friday, and he'll make his first major-league appearance of the 2022 season during Saturday's matinee. The right-hander made 14 appearances (13 starts) for the Cardinals last year and posted a 4.91 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 62.1 innings.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Recalled by Cardinals

    Oviedo was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Friday.

    Oviedo failed to earn a spot on the Cardinals' Opening Day roster this year, but he's been working as a starter in Memphis and has posted a 5.58 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 50 innings over 10 starts. He's served mainly as a starter in the majors and seems like a candidate to draw a start in one of the two games during Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Optioned to Triple-A

    Oviedo was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Oviedo made 14 appearances (13 starts) for the Cardinals in 2021, but he'll be left off the team's Opening Day roster this year. He posted a 6.13 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 54.1 innings across 12 appearances (11 starts) in Memphis last season and should be a candidate to fill in as a starter in the majors at some point in 2022.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Ejected from minor-league game

    Oviedo was ejected from Wednesday's game at Triple-A Memphis after the top of the fourth inning for an apparent violation of the league's foreign substance rules, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Oviedo has been in Memphis since late July, and he was removed from Wednesday's contest after an umpire examined his glove as he left the mound. His glove was confiscated and will be examined by the league. If the right-hander is found to be in violation of the foreign substance policy, he'll face a 10-game suspension.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Heads back to Triple-A

    The Cardinals optioned Oviedo to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

    After giving up three runs on five hits and six walks over 4.1 innings to take a no-decision in his start Monday versus the Pirates, Oviedo will be sent to the minors to refine his control. Due to upcoming off days Thursday and next Monday, the Cardinals will be able to get by with a four-man rotation until Aug. 7 versus the Royals. Oviedo could be called up from Triple-A that day to serve as the fifth starter.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Wild in no-decision

    Oviedo allowed three runs on five hits and six walks while striking out six in 4.1 innings, taking a no-decision versus Cincinnati on Sunday.

    The six walks allowed matched a season high for the right-hander, although he was able to limit the damage. The lack of control caused Oviedo to need 98 pitches (55 strikes) to complete 4.1 innings, which wasn't enough to qualify for the win. The 23-year-old's ERA inched up to 4.91 with a 1.57 WHIP and 51:37 K:BB through 62.1 innings this year. If he continues to stick in the rotation, Oviedo lines up for a home start versus Minnesota next weekend.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Getting ball again Sunday

    Oviedo is scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Reds.

    After being called up from Triple-A Memphis to start Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Oviedo looked on track to earn his first win of the season, but a meltdown by the bullpen undid most of his good work (one run allowed over five innings). Still, Oviedo's outing was solid enough for him to garner another start for the banged-up Cardinals, who are lacking in healthy alternatives for the rotation.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Strong effort wasted

    Oviedo allowed one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out five across five innings Tuesday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.

    Oviedo struggled throughout the first half of the season, but he will likely be needed with several of the Cardinals' starters sidelined by injury. He responded with one of his best outings of the campaign, holding the Cubs to only one run that came in the second frame. He exited the contest with a 4-1 lead, but a meltdown in the ninth inning by the bullpen denied him his first win of the season. Oviedo now has a 4.81 ERA with a 45:31 K:BB across 58 innings on the campaign.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Call-up official

    The Cardinals recalled Oviedo from Triple-A Memphis ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday versus the Cubs.

    St. Louis will plug Oviedo back into the rotation for his 12th start of the season despite his less-than-stellar results to close the first half. Over his final four starts prior to being demoted to Triple-A, Oviedo posted a 6.11 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in 17.2 innings. With regular rotation members Jack Flaherty (oblique), Miles Mikolas (forearm) and Carlos Martinez (thumb) all residing on the 60-day injured list, the Cardinals are short on quality alternatives, so Oviedo will be given another chance to try and right the ship.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Starting Tuesday

    Oviedo will be recalled from Triple-A Memphis to start Tuesday against the Cubs, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Oviedo has failed to impress in 11 starts and one relief appearance at the big-league level this season, posting a 5.09 ERA. That number looks well deserved, given his poor combination of a 16.4 percent strikeout rate and 12.3 percent walk rate. He could be needed for multiple starts down the stretch, however, as the Cardinals currently have four starters on the 60-day injured list.

  • Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Sent to Triple-A

    Oviedo was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    The young right-hander made his final start before the All-Star break in Wednesday's loss to the Giants, so he'll head to Triple-A so he can continue receiving work in the minors. Oviedo is a strong bet to rejoin the rotation when the Cardinals require additional starters during the July 19-22 series versus the Cubs.
