Alaniz cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.
Alaniz made his big-league debut in 2019, throwing 4.0 innings for the Mariners and 11.2 for the Reds. He struggled to find success, finishing with a 9.19 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP.
Alaniz was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.
He was claimed off waivers from Seattle on May 31 and has logged a 2.93 ERA over 25 appearances with the Bats. Look for Alaniz to pitch in low-leverage situations.
Alaniz was claimed off waivers by the Reds on Friday and optioned to Triple-A Louisville.
Alaniz threw four innings for the Mariners this season, allowing 10 runs (nine earned). He owns a 6.39 ERA in 12.2 innings for Triple-A Tacoma, though his 36.5 percent strikeout rate at that level does at least hint at some small amount of promise.
The Mariners optioned Alaniz to Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.
His demotion opens up a spot in the bullpen for Chasen Bradford (shoulder), who was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Alaniz made four relief appearances in his first callup to the big leagues, giving up runs in all but one of those outings.
Alaniz was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.
The Mariners are shaking up their bullpen Friday, recalling Alaniz and activating Shawn Armstrong (oblique) while optioning Erik Swanson and Matt Festa. Alaniz is 27 years old and has yet to make his big-league debut, but he's struck out half the batters he's faced in 3.1 Triple-A innings so far this year.
Alaniz was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.
Alaniz had been in camp fighting for a bullpen spot but has apparently already been eliminated from that battle. The move has minimal immediate impact, as Alaniz remains in camp and on the 40-man roster, so he could always re-enter the conversation. For now, the 27-year-old isn't in the bullpen picture for Opening Day.
Alaniz signed a contract with the Mariners on Thursday.
Alaniz spent the majority of the 2018 campaign with Triple-A Durham, posting a 4.00 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 35:8 K:BB across 27 innings of relief for the Bulls when healthy -- he made two trips to the disabled list. It's somewhat interesting that the 27-year-old, who has yet to appear in the majors, inked a major-league deal, but the Mariners apparently like what the right-hander has to offer. Alaniz will likely serve as bullpen depth in 2019.
Alaniz was optioned to minor-league camp Friday, Maureen Mullen of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old right-hander had received an invite to spring training upon signing a minor-league deal in December. Alaniz saw action in three exhibitions overall, firing a pair of scoreless innings and recording a strikeout. He's slated to likely begin the season at Triple-A Durham after generating a 4.25 ERA and 40:21 K:BB over 36 innings at the same level with Toledo in the Tigers' system in 2017.
Alaniz signed a minor-league deal with an invite to spring training with Tampa Bay on Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Alaniz split his time pretty evenly this past year between Triple-A and Double-A in the Tigers' system. During 36 innings on the mound for Triple-A Toledo, the right-hander posted a 4.25 ERA and 1.78 WHIP with a 40:21 K:BB. He will likely start out the 2018 campaign at Triple-A Durham and will provide organizational depth for the Rays' bullpen.
Alaniz was reassigned to minor league camp on Sunday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Alaniz was solid in 2016, posting a 2.55 ERA and a strikeout per inning while splitting time between Double- and Triple-A. The Tigers probably want to see more from Alaniz at Triple-A Toledo, where he only made 18 appearances last season. If he excels there, he could get a look later in the season.
Alaniz has signed a minor league contract with the Tigers that includes an invite to spring training.
After what was easily his best professional season to date, Alaniz decided to return for a second year in the Tigers' organization. The right-hander posted a 2.77 ERA with a strikeout per inning in 34 appearances with Double-A Erie to begin 2016, earning a promotion to the Triple-A level for the first time. Alaniz was even better after the move up and will now get a chance to prove himself against big-league hitters in major league camp.
Alaniz was promoted to Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday, Tom Reisenweber of the Erie Times-News reports.
The reliever has been serviceable this year with a 3.52 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with Double-A Erie. If he can perform well with Triple-A Toledo, he could make his way to the majors late in the season as bullpen depth.
