Yankees' Luis Avilan: Invited to Yankees camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan joined the Yankees on a minor-league deal Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Avilan will get an invitation to big-league camp as part of the deal. The veteran lefty owns a career 3.28 ERA over eight big-league seasons, though that number came in at 5.06 across 32 innings for the Mets last season.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Grabs win in Minny
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (2-0) picked up the win in Tuesday's victory over the Twins, walking one in a scoreless inning of relief.

After Steven Matz could only give the Mets four innings, the team's bullpen came through with a rare strong group effort. Six different pitchers shut down the Twins for the final five frames -- with Avilan being in the right place at the right time to get credit for the win. On the season, the southpaw has a rough 8.03 ERA and 1.86 WHIP, but he's provided three straight scoreless appearances since returning from an elbow injury at the beginning of July.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Avilan was placed on the shelf May 4 due to left elbow soreness, and it's since been revealed that he has bone spurs in his elbow, per DiComo. However, the southpaw doesn't believe the bone spurs will cause any further issues. He'll aim to get back on track after posting an alarming 9.28 ERA and 2.06 WHIP with 11 strikeouts across 10.2 innings.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (elbow) has made three rehab outings and is close to a return, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Avilan has pitched a total of three innings during his rehab outings, allowing one earned run, whiffing three and issuing one free pass. He's been out since early May but is proving healthy enough to be activated from the injured list soon. Prior to the injury, Avilan had struggled, posting a 9.28 ERA and 2.06 WHIP with 11 strikeouts and five walks across 10.2 innings of work.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (elbow) will report to High-A St. Lucie to start a rehab assignment Saturday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Avilan has been on the shelf since early May with left elbow soreness but appears to be nearing his return to the majors. The 29-year-old will likely require a handful of rehab outings in the minors after sitting out game action for over six weeks.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (elbow) resumed playing catch over the weekend, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Avilan has been on the injured list since early May with left elbow soreness, so a return to throwing is his first real progress towards a return. The 28-year-old should continue building up his arm strength before advancing to bullpen sessions.

May 18, 2019 09:12 PM
Mets' Luis Avilan: Yet to resume throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (elbow) is still feeling discomfort and has not resumed throwing, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Avilan has already missed two weeks with left elbow soreness, and his absence doesn't appear likely to end soon. It's not yet clear when the Mets expect him to begin working his way back.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with left elbow soreness.

Avilan was pulled from Friday's game against the Brewers after three batters due to elbow tightness. The severity of the injury is not known, but the 29-year-old will be eligible to return May 14 at Washington.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Lifted with elbow tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan was removed from Friday's game against the Brewers with elbow tightness, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Avilan retired two of the three batters he faced before exiting with a trainer. The southpaw will undergo further evaluation in the coming days to determine the severity of the issue.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Exits with trainer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan exited Friday's game against the Brewers with an apparent injury, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

Avilan faced just three batters before exiting with a trainer. Specifics regarding the injury are not yet know. Consider Avilan day-to-day until he's further evaluated.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Picks up win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (1-0) gave up two hits and struck out one in a scoreless inning of relief to record the win in Monday's victory over the Phillies.

Despite the successful outing, Avilan is still saddled with a brutal 10.80 ERA and 2.40 WHIP after coughing up 13 hits -- including two homers -- in only 6.2 innings. If he continues to give up plenty of hard contact, the Mets may look to churn his spot in the bullpen rather than stick with the journeyman southpaw.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Staggered by Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan pitched an inning of relief and served up a three-run home run to Anthony Rendon during Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

After striking out Max Scherzer to open the frame, Avilan plunked a batter, then gave up a two-out single to Howie Kendrick to set up Rendon's blast. The veteran lefty has been tagged with three runs in back-to-back outings, saddling him with a grotesque 23.14 ERA through 2.1 innings, and he'll remain in a low-leverage role for the Mets -- perhaps limited to LOOGY duties, to avoid further matchups with tough right-handed hitters -- at least until he strings together a few clean appearances.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Added to roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets selected Avilan's contract ahead of Thursday's 2-0 win over the Nationals.

Starter Jacob deGrom exited after tossing six shutout frames, with Seth Lugo and Jeurys Familia each pitching one inning before closer Edwin Diaz retired the side in the ninth. The Mets' decision not to use Avilan in a tight game likely indicates that he won't fill a prominent role out of the bullpen this season, with the veteran instead expected to see the bulk of his work in the middle innings.

March 26, 2019 04:08 PM
Mets' Luis Avilan: Will break camp with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan has won a roster spot, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Avilan's 14:0 K:BB and 2.31 ERA in 11.2 spring innings earned him a spot in the Mets' bullpen. The veteran lefty should provide quality relief innings this season but is unlikely to get close to the closer conversation.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Making strong spring impression
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan struck out one in a perfect inning of relief during Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros to record his first save of the spring.

While the southpaw is no threat to factor into the closer mix in the regular season, Avilan has all but locked up a big-league job this spring with a 2.35 ERA and dynamite 9:0 K:BB through 7.2 innings. He figures to be the No. 2 left-hander in the Mets' bullpen behind Justin Wilson, a role with limited fantasy appeal, but one which could keep him very busy in an NL East that features sluggers such as Bryce Harper and Freddie Freeman.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Good chance to make roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan has a good chance to make the Mets' Opening Day roster according to general manager Brodie Van Wagenen, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Avilan was only given a minor-league deal, but his numbers agree with the idea that he'll have a good shot. The lefty has recorded an ERA below 3.80 for three straight seasons and looks even better by FIP, where his mark has been below 3.10 in each of those years.

Mets' Luis Avilan: Inks minor-league deal with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Thursday. The deal includes an invitation to spring training.

Avilan was forced to settle for a non-guaranteed deal after being non-tendered by Philadelphia earlier in the offseason. Across 70 appearances with the White Sox and Phillies in 2018, the southpaw notched a 3.77 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 51:18 K:BB in 45.1 innings. Avilan held lefties to a .220/.304/.341 slash line in 2019 and will compete for a spot in the Mets' Opening Day bullpen as a lefty specialist.

Luis Avilan: Non-tendered by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan was not tendered by Philadelphia on Friday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Avilan appeared in 70 games out of the bullpen between the White Sox and the Phillies in 2018. He posted a 3.77 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with a 51:18 K:BB across 45.1 frames.

August 22, 2018 01:12 PM
Phillies' Luis Avilan: Traded to Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan was dealt to Philadelphia from the White Sox in exchange for Felix Paulino.

Avilan will add a much needed left-handed arm to the Phillies' bullpen, especially with southpaw Aaron Loup (forearm) currently on the DL. Across 58 appearances with Chicago this year, Avilan logged a 3.86 ERA and 1.36 WHIP to go along with a 46:14 K:BB over 39.2 innings. Manager Gabe Kapler will have the chance to utilize Avilan as a LOOGY in high-leverage spots. In order to make room for Avilan on the 40-man roster, Jose Taveras was designated for assignment.

White Sox's Luis Avilan: Saves second game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan allowed two hits and two inherited runners to score in two-thirds of an inning, but picked up the save in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Tigers.

Avilan picked up his second save, though he was hardly effective and needed every bit of the three-run lead the White Sox had when he entered the game. While he has the most saves of the relievers in line for save opportunities, it's best not to view the left-handed Avilan has the primary closer. Since the White Sox traded Joakim Soria, manager Rick Renteria has handed out save chances to Avilan, Jace Fry, Xavier Cedeno and Thyago Viera.
