Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Initiates rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno (wrist) began a rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Iowa, tossing a scoreless 18-pitch inning.

Cedeno retired three of the four batters he faced, working around a walk to turn in a clean frame. Considering that Cedeno's left wrist has proven bothersome since spring training, the Cubs may want him to complete another appearance or two in the minors before bringing him back from the 10-day injured list.

Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Wrist injury resurfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno was placed on the 10-day injured list with left wrist inflammation Wednesday.

The same injury prevented Cedeno from making his season debut until May 11. He threw two scoreless innings but had a 3.50 WHIP in five appearances before landing back on the injured list. Rowan Wick was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.

Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno (wrist) was activated from the injured list Saturday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Cedeno has yet to pitch in a big-league game for the Cubs because of his injury, but he is ready to go after making 10 appearances in the minors. Cedeno will pitch out of the bullpen and figures to mainly work situationally when manager Joe Maddon wants to bring in a southpaw to face an opposing left-handed hitter or two.

Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Rehab moves to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno (wrist) will move his rehab assignment to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Cedeno has been out since the start of the season with a wrist issue. He's made six rehab appearances for Double-A Tennessee, allowing four runs in 3.2 innings.

Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Cleared for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno (wrist) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Tennessee on Thursday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Cedeno has been nursing a left wrist injury since early March but is finally ready to get back into game action. While he's seemingly inching closer to a return, the number of rehab appearances Cedeno will need to make before being cleared to join the Cubs has yet to be determined.

Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Remains in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno (wrist) will pitch in an extended spring training game in Arizona on Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

President of baseball operations Theo Epstein said at the start of the week that Cedeno was close to beginning a rehab assignment, but for now he remains at extended spring training. The 32-year-old has been nursing the left wrist injury since early March, but he appears to be nearing his return given he has resumed facing live hitters.

Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Nearing rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

President of baseball operations Theo Epstein said Monday that Cedeno (wrist) is close to beginning a rehab assignment, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Cedeno missed most of spring training with a left wrist injury, but Epstein's comments suggest the reliever has resumed facing hitters again or should within the next few days. The 32-year-old seemingly has a realistic shot of returning from the 10-day injured list at some point in the second half of April.

Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno was placed on the 10-day IL, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

He hasn't had time to build back up in time for Opening Day after being shut down in mid-March. Cedeno could require a rehab assignment before joining the big-league bullpen.

Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Won't make Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno (wrist) won't be healthy by Opening Day, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Cedeno has resumed throwing but doesn't have enough time to get up to speed by the start of the season. He's expected to open the year on the injured list

March 11, 2019 10:28 AM
Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Likely to miss Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs said Sunday that Cedeno (wrist) will remain shut down for 7-to-10 days, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Cedeno has already been shut down for a few days, and his status for Opening Day is now in severe doubt. The 32-year-old joined the Cubs on a minor-league deal in mid-February but has yet to make a Cactus League appearance due to the left wrist issue.

March 6, 2019 01:44 PM
Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Not ready to throw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pitching coach Tommy Hottovy said Wednesday that Cedeno (wrist) remains shut down from throwing but still has enough time to be ready for Opening Day, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Cedeno has been able to play light catch since the wrist issue surfaced shortly after he signed a minor-league deal with Chicago in mid-February, but his inability to begin a throwing progression in earnest puts him behind the team's other bullpen candidates for now. Since he's historically been deployed as a LOOGY or one-inning reliever, however, Cedeno won't need much time to build up once he advances to mound work.

Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Nursing wrist injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno has been sidelined with a left wrist injury but resumed playing catch Sunday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Cedeno signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs in mid-February but has yet to make his Cactus League debut due to the wrist issue. The fact the veteran left-hander is throwing is an encouraging sign, but it remains unclear when he may be able to return to game action.

Cubs' Xavier Cedeno: Signs with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Wednesday which includes an invitation to spring training, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

Cedeno has found a new home in the NL Central after being non-tendered by the Brewers earlier in the offseason. The southpaw is a good bet to break camp with the Cubs in a middle-relief role after posting a combined 2.43 ERA and 9.2 K/9 across 33.1 innings with the Brewers and White Sox last season.

Brewers' Xavier Cedeno: Cut loose by Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno was not tendered a contract for the 2019 season by Milwaukee.

Cedeno came over to Milwaukee in late August and proceeded to post a 1.13 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with six strikeouts across eight innings, though he was held off the postseason roster due to the glut of relief options on the team. The left-hander will now hit the open market and shouldn't have a hard time finding suitors following his 2018 campaign.

Brewers' Xavier Cedeno: On NLCS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno was added to the Brewers' NLCS roster against the Dodgers.

Keon Broxton was dropped from the active roster after being on the 25-man for Milwaukee's series against Colorado. The addition of Cedeno will provide the club with one more southpaw out of the bullpen to match up with the tough left-handed bats in the Dodgers' lineup. Across 15 appearances with Milwaukee this year after being acquired from the White Sox, Cedeno allowed just one earned run while striking out six over eight innings of relief.

Brewers' Xavier Cedeno: Not on roster vs. Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno was left off the Brewers' NLDS roster against Colorado.

Manager Craig Counsell decided to leave off Cedeno and fellow southpaw Dan Jennings due to the right-handed power bats in the Rockies' lineup. This decision comes as a slight surprise given that Cedeno has logged a 1.13 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over eight innings with the club since being acquired in late August. That said, he could be added back onto the roster for the NLCS should the Brewers advance past Colorado.

Brewers' Xavier Cedeno: Tosses 1.1 scoreless frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno tossed 1.1 scoreless innings in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

Cedeno has proven to be a valuable late-August addition for the Brewers, tossing 6.2 scoreless innings over nine appearances while giving up just three hits and posting a 4:1 K:BB. He is operating as the team's No. 2 left-hander out of the bullpen behind Josh Hader.

August 31, 2018 06:13 PM
Brewers' Xavier Cedeno: Heads to Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno was shipped from the White Sox to the Brewers on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

The return package has not yet been announced. Cedeno has a 2.84 ERA in 25.1 innings for the White Sox this season. The veteran lefty has walked too many batters this season (12.3 percent) but makes up for that with a solid strikeout rate (26.4 percent) and a high groundball rate (55.4 percent). He's unlikely to be a candidate for saves in Milwaukee.

White Sox's Xavier Cedeno: Picks up seventh hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno retired the side in order to record his seventh hold of the season in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Yankees.

Cedeno polished off the top of the Yankees order in the eighth inning, inducing three groundouts to preserve the lead for Reynaldo Lopez and hand matters over to Jace Fry. The unheralded left-hander has become a trusted setup man for manager Rick Renteria, posting a 1.04 ERA over his last 10 games.

August 15, 2018 01:20 AM
White Sox's Xavier Cedeno: Picks up first save of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cedeno gave up a hit while striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Tigers, notching his first save of the season.

His only other save across 162 MLB innings came in 2015 with the Rays. Cedeno was only recalled from Triple-A a week ago, but the closer's role in Chicago seems to be wide open. Juan Minaya walked the first batter of the ninth inning and was then replaced by Cedeno with the White Sox leading 6-3. Cedeno now sports a 3.20 ERA and 24:12 K:BB in 19.2 innings in the majors this season. There probably won't be many save chances for the White Sox over the final six weeks, but Cedeno seems like as good of a candidate as anyone to get those chances.
