Top Alex Vesia News

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Secures first big-league save

    Vesia retired the only batter he faced Tuesday against the Rockies to earn his first major-league save.

    In the top of the 10th inning, Los Angeles took a one-run lead on an RBI single by Albert Pujols. The Dodgers turned to Brusdar Graterol to open the bottom of the frame, then asked Vesia to record the final out with runners on the corners. The left-hander was successful in the opportunity, inducing a flyout to center field to end the contest. Vesia has been an excellent addition to the Dodgers bullpen, posting a 2.45 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, three wins, eight holds and a 49:19 K:BB across 36.2 innings. He has not allowed an earned run in his past eight appearances.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Notches win Tuesday

    Vesia (3-1) earned the win over the Cardinals on Tuesday, retiring the only batter he faced via strikeout.

    The Dodgers deployed nine different relievers as part of a planned bullpen game, with Vesia -- the only one among the group to not toss at least a full inning -- landing in the fortunate position to pick up the win. The left-hander couldn't have done much better in his brief opportunity, striking out Matt Carpenter on three pitches to end a two-on, two-out threat. Vesia has been outstanding over his past 25 appearances, posting a 1.09 ERA, 0.57 WHIP and 31:6 K:BB across 24.2 frames.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Secures seventh hold

    Vesia earned a hold against the Giants on Saturday by retiring the only batter he faced via strikeout.

    The southpaw was called upon to face Mauricio Dubon with two outs and a runner on second base in the sixth inning. Vesia struck out Dubon swinging on five pitches to earn the hold. He has ascended to a higher-leverage role over the course of the campaign, notching a hold in four of his past eight appearances. Overall, Vesia has posted a 2.73 ERA, 0.88 ERA and 42:17 K:BB across 33 innings during his first extensive opportunity as a big-leaguer.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Earns first big-league win

    Vesia (1-1) earned the win over Arizona on Saturday, pitching a scoreless inning during which he gave up one hit.

    The southpaw came into the contest with scored tied 3-3 in the sixth inning. He gave up a one-out single but faced the minimum by subsequently inducing a double play. The Dodgers put up four runs in the top of the seventh, giving Vesia his first win as a major-leaguer. In 19 appearances with the big club this season, Vesia has registered a 3.48 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 24:13 K:BB across 20.2 innings.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Recalled by Dodgers

    Vesia was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.

    The lefty has posted a 1.00 ERA in nine innings of relief with the Triple-A squad after being sent down June 3. Vesia's work with the Dodgers earlier this season was less impressive, as he yielded seven runs, including three home runs, in just 10.2 innings. He'll fill the roster spot of Jimmy Nelson (back), who was placed on the 10-day IL on Friday.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Sent to minors

    Vesia was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Vesia has thrown 10.2 innings of relief for the Dodgers this season but hasn't had much success. His 33.3 percent strikeout rate is strong but hasn't been nearly enough to offset his 22.9 percent walk rate and a shockingly low 10.0 percent groundball rate. The left-hander's 5.91 ERA could be much higher if not for a .059 BABIP.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Quick return to majors

    Vesia was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    The 25-year-old was optioned to Triple-A on Monday, but it was a short absence with Garrett Cleavinger (forearm) landing on the injured list. Vesia has given up five runs (three earned) with a 7:5 K:BB through four innings this season.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Sent to Triple-A

    Vesia was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Vesia made three relief appearances during his stint in the majors and allowed five runs (three earned) on a hit and five walks while striking out seven in four innings. His removal from the major-league roster was part of a transaction to make room for Albert Pujols and Yoshi Tsutsugo.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Suffers loss in Dodgers debut

    Vesia (0-1) took the loss against Milwaukee on Saturday, completing one inning and allowing four runs (two earned) on four walks while striking out two.

    The left-hander was recalled from the team's alternate training site earlier in the day and was promptly put into a pressure situation, getting the call in the 10th inning with LA up by a run. Vesia walked the first two batters he faced before yielding a run on a sacrifice fly, but he was able to prevent further damage by striking out the final batter of the frame. After the Dodgers got two runs in the top of the 11th, Vesia returned for the bottom of the frame and again walked the first two batters before he was replaced. Overall, the 25-year-old threw only 14 of 34 pitches for strikes, which is certainly not a recipe for success.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Back in big-league bullpen

    Vesia was recalled by the Dodgers on Saturday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Vesia spent one day on the major-league roster in mid-April and did not get into a game. He'll take the spot that had belonged to Edwin Uceta, who was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Demoted from active roster

    The Dodgers optioned Vesia to their taxi squad Sunday.

    Vesia's demotion clears a spot in the Dodgers bullpen for Brusdar Graterol (conditioning), who was activated from the injured list ahead of Sunday's series finale in San Diego. The 25-year-old lefty was up with the Dodgers for only one day and didn't appear in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Padres.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Slated to be called up

    Vesia will be recalled by the Dodgers ahead of Saturday's game against the Padres, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    The Dodgers used six relievers during Friday's 12-inning win over San Diego, so Vesia will be available as bullpen depth Saturday. Vesia made five relief appearances for the Marlins in 2020 and allowed nine runs on seven hits and seven walks while striking out five in 4.1 innings. He should serve as a low-leverage reliever in the big leagues and could be sent back to the team's alternate training site once the Dodgers' bullpen is fully rested.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Sent to minors

    The Dodgers optioned Vesia to their minor-league camp Monday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

    Vesia, whom the Dodgers acquired in February, will likely report to Triple-A Oklahoma City or Double-A Tulsa as he begins his career with a new organization. The 24-year-old got the chance to make his MLB debut for the COVID-19-depleted Marlins in 2020, posting an 18.69 ERA over his five appearances out of the bullpen.

  • Dodgers' Alex Vesia: Heading to Dodgers

    Vesia and an additional prospect were traded from the Marlins to the Dodgers on Friday in exchange for Dylan Floro, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Vesia made his big-league debut in 2020 and struggled with nine earned runs allowed over 4.1 innings, and he'll now be heading to the Dodgers. The 24-year-old made nine appearances at the Double-A level in 2019 and delivered 16.1 scoreless innings with a 25:1 K:BB, and he could compete for a bullpen spot in Los Angeles.

  • Marlins' Alex Vesia: Sent down by Miami

    Vesia was optioned to the Marlins' alternate training site Thursday.

    Vesia will return to alternate camp after allowing five runs (four earned) over 1.1 innings during Wednesday's blowout loss to Atlanta. The southpaw did not find much success in his first taste of major-league action this year with an 18.69 ERA and 3.23 WHIP over 4.1 innings across five appearances.

  • Marlins' Alex Vesia: Reinstated Saturday

    Vesia (undisclosed) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    The Marlins never provided reasoning for Vesia's trip to the injured list, but the young left-hander was officially activated ahead of the team's game against the Rays on Saturday and should find himself pitching in low-leverage scenarios moving forward.

  • Marlins' Alex Vesia: Placed on 10-day injured list

    Vesia was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday for an undisclosed reason, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    The Marlins provided no reason for the transaction, and it's unclear whether Vesia's absence is related to the team's ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. The southpaw took a loss in his MLB debut in the team's second game of the season, and the length of his stay on the injured list remains to be seen. The Marlins added pitchers James Hoyt and Brian Moran in corresponding moves.
