  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Active for Single-A club

    Pardinho (elbow) struck out three over two scoreless innings Wednesday in his season debut for Single-A Dunedin.

    Pardinho was sidelined for the first two months of the season with a right elbow injury before he was cleared to join the Blue Jays' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate for a pair of rehab outings. He showed enough in the two FCL outings to rejoin the Dunedin rotation, but he's still expected to have his workload monitored carefully throughout his age-21 campaign.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Returning to game action

    Pardinho (elbow) will join the Blue Jays' rookie-level Florida Coast League affiliate for a rehab assignment Saturday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Pardinho underwent Tommy John surgery in February of 2020, but he's built up over the last few months and has been cleared to return to game action. The right-hander sustained a setback while playing rookie ball last year, so the Blue Jays will likely exercise plenty of caution before ultimately sending him to another minor-league affiliate.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Continues building up

    The Blue Jays indicated Friday that Pardinho (elbow) is building up ahead of joining High-A Vancouver in a few weeks, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Pardinho has had a lengthy rehab process after undergoing Tommy John surgery in February of 2020. The right-hander encountered setbacks after appearing in rookie ball last year, so the Blue Jays figure to exercise caution in the coming weeks to avoid rushing him back to game action too quickly.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Throwing off mound

    Pardinho (elbow) has been throwing off the mound at Blue Jays camp, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Pardinho underwent Tommy John surgery back in February of 2020. He returned to make two rookie-ball appearances in July of last year but was quickly shut down again due to setbacks. The Brazilian righty was seen as at least a moderately interesting prospect prior to his arm troubles, but he'll have to prove that he still has that potential after spending two full years on the sidelines.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Sidelined again with elbow issue

    Pardinho has been shut down since July 8 with elbow soreness, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports.

    He underwent Tommy John surgery in February of 2020, so the three innings he logged in the Florida Complex League this year were his first since 2019. It's certainly concerning that he is back on the shelf, and we may not see him return to game action this season. Pardinho has a career 2.48 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 103 strikeouts in 90.2 innings and won't turn 21 until January.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Makes 2021 debut

    Pardinho (elbow) has made two appearances for the Blue Jays' rookie-level Florida Complex League club since being assigned to the affiliate June 28, covering three scoreless innings and striking out four.

    Pardinho's 2021 debut was delayed while he worked through the final stages of his recovery from his February 2020 Tommy John surgery. Prior to sustaining the elbow injury, Pardinho had finished the 2019 campaign at Low-A Lansing, so it may not take long for him to earn a promotion to a full-season affiliate.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Behind schedule after setbacks

    Pardinho is behind schedule in his return from Tommy John surgery after working through some setbacks, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Pardinho is reportedly only a few weeks behind his original schedule. It's not exactly clear when he'll be ready for game action, but he'll likely head to High-A Vancouver once he's ready to go.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Ready to go

    Pardinho has no restrictions to begin spring training following Tommy John surgery, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Pardinho underwent the procedure back in February of last year and missed the entire 2020 season while rehabbing. He may not be fully ready for game action until a month or two into the season, but it appears as though he's set for a fairly normal spring buildup. When he does eventually see game action, it won't come anywhere near the big-league level, as he's yet to pitch above Low-A.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Out after Tommy John surgery

    Pardinho underwent Tommy John surgery and will miss the 2020 season, Ben Badler of Baseball America reports.

    Pardinho was promoted from rookie ball to Low-A in 2019 and delivered a 2.41 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 30:13 K:BB over 33.2 innings (seven starts), but he won't be able to pitch this season. The 19-year-old will have to focus on his recovery and look to come back in 2021.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Sharp in Low-A

    Pardinho allowed three hits and a walk over five scoreless innings while striking out four for Low-A Lansing on Sunday.

    The 18-year-old right-hander got a late start to the season due to elbow soreness, but after he made one appearance in the Gulf Coast League, the Jays gave him an aggressive promotion to the Midwest League and he's responded by posting a 1.93 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB through his first 14 innings of full-season ball. Pardinho's short stature does create some bullpen concerns in the long run, but he's got plenty of time to prove he can handle the rigors of a rotation spot as he makes his way up the ladder.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Strong 2019 debut

    Pardinho gave up a hit and three walks over four scoreless innings while striking out five for the GCL Blue Jays on Wednesday.

    The 18-year-old Brazilian had the beginning of his season delayed due to mild elbow soreness, but Pardinho looked very good in his 2019 debut. The Jays' No. 8 fantasy prospect posted strong numbers in the Appy League last year (2.88 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, 64:16 K:BB through 50 IP), so this assignment to the Gulf Coast League could be a brief one before he gets moved up to face tougher competition. Given his relatively small frame (he's currently listed at 5-foot-10, 155 pounds), low 90s fastball and promising curveball -- not to mention the organization he pitches for -- Marcus Stroman comparisons might be inevitable, but Pardinho is still a very long way from the majors.

  • Blue Jays' Eric Pardinho: Dealing with elbow soreness

    Pardinho's start to 2019 will be delayed by elbow soreness, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet reports.

    The issue is being described as "mild" but will lead to Pardinho staying behind in extended spring training. Still just 18, Pardinho may have been set to remain there anyway, with short-season Vancouver being a potential starting point for him this season.
