Padres' Dan Altavilla: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (elbow) announced via his personal Twitter account Tuesday that he recently underwent successful Tommy John surgery.

The veteran right-hander has been on the injured list since mid-April with elbow inflammation, and he'll now face an extensive recovery process. Altavilla will miss the rest of the season and will remain sidelined for the first half of 2022, at minimum.

Padres' Dan Altavilla: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.

Altavilla has been out since mid April due to right elbow inflammation, and he isn't particularly close to beginning a rehab stint. As a result, the right-hander will be moved to the 60-day IL to make room for catcher Webster Rivas, whose contract was selected as part of a corresponding move.

Padres' Dan Altavilla: Remains far from return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (elbow) isn't close to beginning a rehab stint, AJ Cassavell of reports.

The left-hander has been out since mid April with right elbow inflammation. He tossed 1.1 innings this season before going down, allowing one hit -- a home run -- while striking out two. Altavilla does not have a clear return timeframe.

Padres' Dan Altavilla: Returns to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with right elbow inflammation.

The 28-year-old missed the first two weeks of the season with a calf injury, and he's now back on the shelf after making two appearances for the Padres. Altavilla will be eligible to return April 27, though it's unclear how long he's expected to be sidelined.

Padres' Dan Altavilla: Reinstated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (calf) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

He takes the place in the bullpen of Taylor Williams (knee), who was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move. Altavilla should primarily pitch in low-to-mid leverage situations.

Padres' Dan Altavilla: Sidelined with calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres manager Jayce Tingler said Monday that Altavilla will open the season on the 10-day injured list with a calf issue, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The injury likely explains why Altavilla hasn't made a Cactus League appearance over the past week. Tingler suggested the calf issue isn't a major concern for Altavilla, who should be in store for a brief stint on the IL to begin the season.

Padres' Dan Altavilla: Struggling with long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla has yielded four home runs across six Cactus League innings, and opposing hitters are batting .307 against him overall.

Altavilla entered spring on the roster bubble and hasn't helped his case with the number of home runs he has served up. He is out of options and the Padres are dealing with a number of injuries in their bullpen, giving the right-hander a better chance of sticking around. Still, the team could elect to pass him over in favor of a promising young arm.

Padres' Dan Altavilla: Reaches deal with Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla and the Padres reached a one-year, $850,000 deal Friday.

Altavilla and San Diego won't require an arbiter during the offseason after agreeing to a one-year contract Friday. The right-hander was included on the team's NLDS roster in 2020 after he was acquired by the Padres at the trade deadline. He should take on a middle-relief role in 2021 after posting a 5.75 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 20.1 innings with the Mariners and Padres during the shortened 2020 campaign.

Padres' Dan Altavilla: Joins NLDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla was added to the Padres' 28-man roster for the NLDS on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old appeared in nine games after being acquired by the Padres at the trade deadline and allowed three runs on six hits with a 10:5 K:BB over 8.2 innings. Altavilla could very well see the mound despite just being added to the playoff roster, as it's all hands on deck for the Padres' bullpen with top-two starters Dinelson Lamet (biceps) and Mike Clevinger (elbow) sidelined.

Padres' Dan Altavilla: Charged with loss versus old team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (1-3) took the loss Saturday, giving up two runs on a hit and two walks while striking out three over 1.1 innings versus the Mariners on Saturday.

Altavilla was responsible for a two-run double by Luis Torrens in the third inning, and the Padres were unable to get the reliever off the hook. The 28-year-old Altavilla began his Padres career with three straight scoreless outings, but he's now allowed three runs over his last two appearances. In 18 appearances between the Padres and the Mariners, the righty has a 7.02 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 16.2 innings.

Padres' Dan Altavilla: Joining Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla was traded from the Mariners to the Padres on Sunday in a trade involving several players, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Altavilla has been inconsistent out of the Mariners' bullpen to begin the season, but he'll join San Diego's strong bullpen as part of Sunday's blockbuster deal. The right-hander has made 13 appearances in Seattle this season, posting a 7.71 ERA and 14:7 K:BB over 11.2 innings while recording one save. He likely won't pitch in as many higher-leverage situations with the Padres given the team's depth in the back end of the bullpen.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Takes second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (1-2) was charged with the loss in a defeat at the hands of the Dodgers on Tuesday, allowing an earned run on one hit and two walks over one inning. He also recorded two strikeouts.

The right-hander came on in the eighth and was charged with preserving a 1-1 tie, but Altavilla saw matters unravel after recording two outs against the first three hitters he faced. Corey Seager's RBI single to right that plated Austin Barnes ultimately proved to be the deciding run in the contest and made Altavilla the pitcher of record. Factoring in Tuesday's stumble, Altavilla has allowed at least one run in four of nine appearances this season, although the gap between his 7.27 ERA and 4.41 FIP and his 25.0 percent strikeout rate suggests he has the potential to hit his stride at some point.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Unravels in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla allowed three earned runs on two hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning in a win over the Rockies on Sunday. He struck out one.

Altavilla's outing started out harmlessly enough when he retired the first two batters he faced, but he ultimately surrendered a two-run single to Matt Kemp after putting Garrett Hampson, Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon on. Altavilla was subsequently charged with an additional run after exiting for his second three-run outing over the last four appearances. Those are Altavilla's only hiccups thus far this season across six trips to the mound, but they've been enough to push his ERA to a bloated 9.53 across 5.2 innings.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Serious late-inning option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (1-1), who took the loss in a 3-2 defeat in extra innings at the hands of the Athletics on Saturday, is nevertheless a pitcher manager Scott Servais plans to rely on frequently during the late innings, Greg Johns of reports. "He'll continue to get the ball late in games," Servais said. "Some days, it might be the ninth inning, other days, it might be the eighth, depending where we're at in their lineup and what matchup is best for him and for us."

Altavilla's stumble Saturday came even as he was exceedingly sharp, as he threw 11 of his 15 pitches for strikes. However, he allowed a ground-rule double to the pinch-hitting Robbie Grossman, which scored Tony Kemp from second in the 10th inning with what turned out to be the winning run. Altavilla's high-90s fastball and a slider he consistently hits 90-92 mph with is what makes him a good fit for high-leverage opportunities, and with Yoshihisa Hirano (illness) still working his way back into shape and Austin Adams (knee) not yet available either, the hard-throwing right-hander should continue seeing some late-inning work for the time being.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Notches first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla recorded his first save in a win over the Angels on Wednesday, allowing a hit and recording a strikeout over a scoreless ninth inning.

Manager Scott Servais had talked about Altavilla as a candidate for ninth-inning work during summer camp, and Wednesday, the hard-throwing right-hander proved to be up to the task. Altavilla was relatively sharp while getting nine of 15 pitches into the strike zone and wiggling out of potential trouble by retiring Anthony Rendon and Shohei Ohtani after surrendering a one-out double to Mike Trout. Altavilla's already-impressive velocity is notably up through his first two appearances, as he's averaging 97.8 mph on his fastball, an uptick from last season's 96.6 mph. With projected closer Yoshihisa Hirano (illness) still in the process of building his arm back up in Arizona, Altavilla may be in line for more save chances in the short term.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Earns win Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (1-0) fired one perfect inning to earn the win against the Astros on Sunday.

Altavilla was sharp in his one relief inning Sunday even though he didn't record any strikeouts, and he was rewarded with the win after the Mariners scored three runs in the next half-inning. Although he picked up a rare win against the Astros, Altavilla could see some save chances early in the season as the Mariners reportedly intend to use several pitchers in save situations.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Could see save chances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla was identified by manager Scott Servais as a candidate for some closing opportunities with Yoshihisa Hirano (undisclosed) now on the injured list, although the Mariners skipper noted Wednesday he plans to utilize more than one pitcher in the ninth-inning role, Greg Johns of reports.

Altavilla had a rough Cactus League showing with a 7.20 ERA over five appearances, but he was still thought to have job security before expanded rosters had even been announced. The right-hander's high-90s fastball and strikeout rates north of 25.0 percent for each of the last three seasons are strong indicators he could thrive in high-leverage situations, and depending on the length of Hirano's absence, Altavilla could get some opportunities to improve his unsightly 0-for-8 tally in save chances over the first four seasons of his career.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Trending toward roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla was projected to secure a bullpen spot on the Opening Day roster when spring training was suspended, Greg Johns of reports.

The right-handed reliever's Cactus League performance wasn't exactly a ringing endorsement, as he posted a 7.20 ERA and .304 BAA across five innings over five spring training appearances. Altavilla built up some equity during the 2016-18 seasons before struggling last year with a career-worst 5.52 ERA and .143 WHIP over 17 appearances. He also missed time with a forearm injury. Altavilla does boast plenty of swing-and-miss upside thanks to a high 90s fastball, one that's helped him generate a strikeout rate of 25.6 percent or better in each of the last three campaigns.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Working toward high-leverage role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla allowed one unearned run on one hit with one strikeout in Wednesday's Cactus League win over the Reds.

The 27-year-old bounced between Triple-A Tacoma and the majors in 2019 and also missed some time with an elbow injury, but he was promoted for September and finished the year with a 5.52 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 14.2 frames. Yoshihisa Hirano is expected to work in a high-leverage role, but Seattle's bullpen jobs otherwise appear up for grabs. Altavilla flashed his potential with a 2.61 ERA and 1.26 WHIP and five holds in 22 appearances during 2018, and a strong showing in spring training could help solidify a late-inning role for this season.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Second win of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (2-1) was credited with the win in an extra-innings victory over the Orioles on Saturday, allowing a hit over a scoreless 12th inning. He did not issue a walk or record a strikeout.

Altavilla fired 21 pitches overall and successfully preserved a 6-6 tie, which enabled him to become the pitcher of record after Tim Lopes notched a go-ahead RBI infield single in the visitors' half of the 13th and Erik Swanson followed with his second save. Except for a three-run hiccup against the Reds on Sept. 12, Altavilla has been effective since returning from the injured list at the beginning of September, posting a 3.86 ERA and notching both of his wins on the season across eight appearances .
