Nationals' Luis Avilan: Shifts to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

The move doesn't change Avilan's return timeline at all, as he underwent Tommy John surgery in mid-April and will be out until the middle of next year. It clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Jon Lester to return from the COVID-19 injured list.

Nationals' Luis Avilan: Opts for Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (elbow) has elected to undergo Tommy John surgery, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Avilan was diagnosed with a torn UCL on Saturday, but he took several days to decide whether to undergo surgery or whether to simply take some time to rest. Since he'll opt for surgery, Avilan will miss the remainder of the 2021 season and could also miss the start of the 2022 campaign. Prior to the injury, Avilan posted a 12.60 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in five innings across four relief appearances.

Nationals' Luis Avilan: Diagnosed with torn UCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (elbow) has been diagnosed with a torn UCL, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Avilan was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, and it appears as though he'll miss significant time due to his elbow injury. The left-hander is currently weighing whether to undergo surgery or whether he should simply rest until the injury heals. Avilan would likely miss the remainder of the season if he opts for surgery, but he appears to be in line for a lengthy absence even if he decides against a procedure.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan landed on the 10-day injured list with left elbow inflammation Friday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

Avilan has thrown five innings this season, giving up seven runs. His expected return date is not yet clear. Kyle McGowin was recalled in a corresponding move to replace him in the bullpen.

Nationals' Luis Avilan: Take loss Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (0-1) was charged with the loss Friday against the Dodgers, allowing one run on one hit while striking out two across one inning.

The ex-Dodger was called upon to maintain a 0-0 score in the bottom of the sixth inning and managed to strike out the first two batters before serving up a long home run to Justin Turner. It was the first hit and run allowed by Avilan across two outings this season. The southpaw has yet to walk a batter this season.

Nationals' Luis Avilan: Wins bullpen job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Martinez said Sunday that the Nationals will select Avilan's contract, Maria Torres of The Athletic reports.

The Nationals designated Dakota Bacus for assignment in a corresponding move, officially clearing a spot for Avilan in the Nationals' Opening Day bullpen. He'll likely function as the team's top matchup lefty while the other southpaw reliever, Brad Hand, serves as Washington's closer.

Nationals' Luis Avilan: Signs MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Monday, which includes an invitation to spring training, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Avilan hurled 8.1 innings in 10 appearances out of the Yankees' bullpen in 2020, posting 4.32 ERA and 1.68 WHIP with nine punchouts. He'll have a chance to earn a spot on the big-league squad after receiving an invite to spring training.

Yankees' Luis Avilan: Re-signs with Yanks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees re-signed Avilan (shoulder) to a minor-league contract Sunday.

The Yankees dropped Avilan from their 40-man roster last week, but as manager Aaron Boone hinted would be the case, the organization brought the lefty reliever back on a minor-league deal. Avilan posted a 4.32 ERA and 1.68 WHIP over his 10 appearances out of the New York bullpen before he was shut down two weeks ago with left shoulder inflammation and then released. The Yankees' decision to re-sign him suggests he's healthy again, and Avilan could move back up to the big-league roster if New York is in need of another experienced bullpen arm at some point.

Luis Avilan: Released by Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan (shoulder) was released by the Yankees on Friday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Manager Aaron Boone said he hopes the team can sign Avilan back, but the Yankees are dealing with a roster crunch and Avilan was on the shelf with shoulder inflammation.

Yankees' Luis Avilan: Earns Opening Day roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan signed a major-league contract with the Yankees on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old joined the team on a minor-league deal in January and was included in the team's 60-player pool, and he was able to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster in summer training. Avilan appeared in 45 games for the Mets last season and had a 5.06 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 30:14 K:BB over 32 innings.

Yankees' Luis Avilan: Included in player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan will attend the Yankees' summer camp as part of the team's 60-man player pool.

Avilan signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees in January and was competing for a spot in the team's bullpen this spring before play was suspended. The veteran reliever pitched with the Mets last season, compiling a 5.06 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 32 innings.

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.

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.
