Cubs' Alexander Vizcaino: Sent to Cubs for Rizzo
Vizcaino (arm) and Kevin Alcantara were acquired by the Cubs from the Yankees on Wednesday in exchange for Anthony Rizzo, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.
Vizcaino has been on the 60-day injured list all season while dealing with arm soreness, but he's pitched in five rehab games over the past couple weeks and appears to be nearing full health. The right-hander was one of the Yankees' top prospects, but he'll now join the Cubs with New York bolstering its lineup. He's likely destined for Double-A once activated from the injured list....

Yankees' Alexander Vizcaino: Starts up rehab assignment
Vizcaino (arm) began a rehab assignment with the Yankees' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate July 8 and has made two one-inning appearances for the club, giving up a run on one hit and three walks while striking out four.
Vizcaino was shut down for the first two months of the minor-league season while contending with right arm soreness. The 24-year-old is expected to settle at High-A Hudson Valley once he completes his rehab assignment, but for the time being, he resides on the Yankees' 60-day injured list after the big club chose to add him to the 40-man roster during the offseason....

Yankees' Alexander Vizcaino: Out with sore arm
Vizcaino has a sore arm and will miss the start of the minor-league season, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports.
Callis says the Yankees hope Vizcaino will join an affiliate (likely High-A or Double-A) in the near future, but given the nature of the injury, we should consider him out indefinitely. Vizcaino has velocity, athleticism and a nasty changeup all working in his favor. He could break out this year if he can get 100 percent healthy.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Alexander Vizcaino: Sent to minors
Vizcaino was optioned to High-A Hudson Valley on Friday.
Vizcaino is on the 40-man roster, but he's yet to pitch above the High-A level and spent all of last season at the team's alternate training site. The right-hander has not made an appearance for the Yankees in exhibition play this spring.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Alexander Vizcaino: Shielded from Rule 5 draft
Vizcaino was added to the Yankees' 40-man roster Friday.
Vizcaino spent the 2020 season at the Yankees' alternate training site, and he'll remain with the organization since his addition to the 40-man roster will protect him from the Rule 5 draft. The right-hander pitched 119.2 innings in 2019, recording a 4.51 ERA with 133 strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Alexander Vizcaino: Moved to alternate camp
Vizcaino was reassigned to New York's alternate camp site Thursday.
Vizcaino has yet to pitch beyond High-A ball, so he was never expected to compete for big-league playing time in 2020. The righty compiled a 4.51 ERA and 133 strikeouts across 119.2 minor-league innings in 2019.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Alexander Vizcaino: Named to 60-man roster
Vizcaino will take part in the Yankees' summer camp as part of the team's 60-man player pool.
Vizcaino has yet to pitch beyond High-A ball, so he's unlikely to see major-league playing time this season. In 119.2 minor-league innings in 2019, the right-hander posted a 4.51 ERA and 133:40 K:BB.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Alexander Vizcaino: Reassigned to minors camp
Vizcaino was reassigned to the Yankees' minor-league camp Monday.
Vizcaino was able to work with the major-league coaching staff as a non-roster invitee to begin spring training, but he'll now head to minor-league camp to prepare for another season in the minors. The right-hander has allowed three earned runs while recording four strikeouts over three innings this spring.... See More ... See Less
