Socolovich was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
Socolovich was cast off the 40-man roster after stumbling to a 10.80 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in five innings of relief work this season. He'll work out of Gwinnett's bullpen moving forward.
Socolovich was called up from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.
Socolovich appeared in two games at the big-league level earlier this season before being designated for assignment, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk across three innings out of the bullpen. Matt Wisler will head to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Socolovich was designated for assignment by the Braves on Tuesday.
Socolovich was tagged for three runs on three hits and a walk in his only appearance after being promoted to the majors over the weekend. He'll report to Triple-A Gwinnett if he clears waivers again after being DFA'd for the second time. Max Fried was recalled in a corresponding move to take his place on the active roster.
Socolovich had his contract selected by the Braves on Saturday.
Socolovich made one appearance in a brief stay in the majors earlier in the season, striking out two and retiring every batter he faced over two innings. In 84.2 career major-league innings, the 31-year-old has a 4.15 ERA. He'll fill a low-leverage role in the Braves' bullpen. In a corresponding move, Josh Ravin was designated for assignment.
Socolovich was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.
Socolovich was cast off the 40-man roster Monday in order to clear roster space for Anibal Sanchez, and he wound up getting through waivers unclaimed. The 31-year-old right-hander pitched well in his lone appearance for the Braves this season, logging two scoreless innings and striking out a pair. He'll act as organizational pitching depth moving forward.
Socolovich was designated for assignment by the Braves on Monday.
Socolovich was cast off the Braves' 40-man roster in order to open up a roster spot for Anibal Sanchez, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday. The 31-year-old Socolovich tossed a pair of scoreless innings in his lone relief appearance for the Braves this season. He'll take a spin through waivers to determine where he'll report next.
Socolovich had his contract selected from Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday.
Socolovich was promoted to replace injured catcher Tyler Flowers. The veteran righty posted an 8.68 ERA in 18.2 innings for the Cardinals last season. For his career, he owns a respectable 4.25 ERA in 82.2 innings. Expect him to fill a low-leverage role in the Braves' bullpen.
Socolovich signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Thursday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training.
The right-hander spent the last three seasons shuttling between the minors and majors in the Cardinals' organization. He put together some decent numbers in his first two seasons as a reliever, but he was thrashed last season to the tune of an 8.68 ERA in 18.2 innings pitched. Socolovich is 31 years old and doesn't strike out too many hitters, so he's not too intriguing for fantasy purposes even if he manages to crack the Opening Day roster.
Socolovich was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Saturday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
After struggling to a 8.68 ERA and 1.66 WHIP through 18.2 innings (15 games) with the big club this season, the Cardinals decided to oust Socolovich from their 40-man roster. The move clears room for John Brebbia, who had his contract purchased from Triple-A on Saturday. Given Socolovich's major-league experience, the 30-year-old could draw some interest on waivers.
Socolovich gave up two earned runs on two hits over an inning in Sunday's 8-3 win over the Giants. He struck out three.
Socolovich's one inning certainly wasn't dull, as he gave up a pair of solo homers yet also struck out the side. The 30-year-old right-hander has now given up four homers over 17.1 innings and at least one hit in all but three of his 13 appearances. Despite pitching to plenty of contact, he's been a bit more consistent in May, Sunday's appearance notwithstanding. He's generated a respectable 3.86 ERA and 6:0 K:BB over the seven innings spanning his five appearances this month.
Socolovich earned his first save of the season in Monday's 9-4 win over the Marlins, giving up an earned run on a Giancarlo Stanton solo home run while allowing one other hit and recording a strikeout.
The veteran right-hander has mostly been solid this season with the exception of two disastrous outings in which he surrendered a combined nine earned runs over just two-thirds of an inning. Monday's appearance marked his longest of the season and fourth multi-inning effort overall. Socolovich's ability to gobble up innings when necessary -- such as Monday, when the rest of the bullpen was fatigued from a 14-inning marathon against the Braves on Sunday -- render him a particularly valuable option for manager Mike Matheny.
Socolovich (0-1) gave up an unearned run on one hit over 2.2 innings in Tuesday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays. He also recorded a strikeout.
Socolovich was a tough-luck loser, as he performed superbly after coming on with one out in the ninth. The veteran reliever snuffed out the potential for further damage after the Blue Jays had already taken a 5-4 lead by inducing an inning-ending double play from Kendrys Morales, but had a costly hiccup when he surrendered a pinch-hit double to pitcher Marcus Stroman in the 12th, who eventually scored what would be the winning run. Despite the disappointing outcome, it was the second consecutive strong outing for Socolovich after giving up five earned runs and failing to record an out against the Yankees on April 16.
Socolovich failed to record an out in the eighth inning Sunday, surrendering five earned runs on three hits and two walks.
Socolovich had been impressive over his first four trips to the mound, but Sunday's performance was an abject failure. After issuing back-to-back walks to open the frame, the 30-year-old loaded the bases by surrendering a single. Back-to-back doubles by Austin Romine and Ronald Torreyes drove in four runs, and Aaron Hicks' sacrifice fly off Brett Cecil tacked the final run onto Socolovich's ledger. Despite the forgettable night Sunday, the right-hander's ability to pitch multiple innings out of the bullpen should afford him plenty of opportunities as the season unfolds.
Socolovich pitched a scoreless inning in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Yankees, striking out two.
It was yet another impressive appearance for the 30-year-old, who threw eight of his 12 pitches for strikes and notched four swings-and-misses during his one inning. Socolovich has been effective over his four outings, giving up just one earned run and working a pair of two-inning stints. He's yet to be credited with a hold, but his ability to go multiple frames and fairly solid workload thus far would seem to project him as a likely candidate for plenty of opportunities as the season unfolds.
Socolovich will open the season in the Cardinals' bullpen, MLB.com's Jenifer Langosch reports.
This was well earned by the 30-year-old righty, as he has a career 2.95 ERA over 64 innings in the majors and has pitched well this spring. He will work primarily in the middle innings.
Socolovich, who owns a 4.00 ERA over nine spring innings, sees command of his fastball as a pivotal part of winning a roster spot, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports. "If I throw more fastballs for strikes, it's going to make my changeup and my slider better," Socolovich said. "They're not going to be able to be ready for just one pitch. They're going to have to be ready for three. I want to prove that I can throw my fastball for a strike and locate it, too."
Socolovich owns a 1.89 ERA, .175 BAA, 0.94 WHIP and 8.1 K/9 since debuting with the Cardinals in 2015, with the first two figures tops among any reliever on the team with a minimum of 18 innings pitched over that span. That said, he's still fighting for the final bullpen spot, with the fact that he's out of minor league options potentially giving him a slight leg up. The team has encouraged Socolovich to throw his fastball with greater regularity and he's followed suit, firing it with 12 percent greater frequency in 2016 as compared to the prior season. The pitch was key in helping get off to a strong start this spring, and despite some struggles over his last three innings, he retains the confidence of manager Mike Matheny. "He's been terrific," Matheny said. "He's got a good enough fastball to come at anybody, and that will make his secondary pitches better. He was a hard thrower even before we got him. [We're] just making sure he knows he can trust the fact that that should be a good pitch."
Socolovich struck out two of the three batters he faced in a clean ninth inning against the Nationals on Friday.
The 30-year-old righty continues to shine this spring, as he's now given up just one earned run on one hit and one walk over five innings while fanning four. After a long minor league career, Socolovich has thrived in his brief major league opportunities. Over 15 appearances last season, he surrendered four earned runs on five hits and five walks, generating a 2.00 ERA and 0.56 WHIP over 18 innings. Given the strong case he's made so far, he could well be a part of the relief corps to start the 2017 campaign.
The Cardinals recalled Socolovich from Triple-A Memphis on Friday.
Socolovich will take the roster spot of Sam Tuivailala, who was optioned to Memphis in the corresponding move. Socolovich has appeared in just two games with the Cardinals this season, but he excelled out of the team's bullpen last year, posting a 1.82 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 29.2 innings. Expect him to work in middle relief for the big club.
Socolovich was demoted to Triple-A Memphis on Sunday.
The Cardinals were in need of a spot on the 25-man roster for Sunday's starter, Mike Mayers, and Socolovich was the odd man out. Given that it's a spot start for Mayers, it's quite possible Socolovich's trip to the minors will be a short one.
Socolovich was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.
The Cards placed Jhonny Peralta on the DL and DFA'd Michael McKenry on Tuesday, temporarily freeing up some spots on the big league roster. To fill the void, St. Louis recalled Socolovich as well as outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker. Socolovich has appeared in 28 games for the Cards this season, posting an impressive 4-1 record and equally impressive 1.82 ERA across 29.2 innings of work.
