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 .

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

Altavilla (1-0) was credited with his first victory of the season in a win over the Reds on Tuesday, allowing a walk and recording a strikeout without surrendering a hit over a scoreless eighth inning.

Altavilla's first 2019 victory thus comes at the tail end of the campaign, although considering he missed nearly two months with a forearm issue, it's notable nonetheless. The right-hander had endured a couple of multi-run hiccups prior to his placement on the injured list in early July, but he's fired 3.2 scoreless, one-hit frames across four appearances since his return.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Tosses scoreless frame in IL return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (forearm) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Sunday. He worked around a base hit and a walk to deliver a scoreless sixth inning in relief in the Mariners' 11-3 win over the Rangers.

Altavilla was making his first appearance with the big club since July 5 after the forearm issue forced him to the injured list for the second time on the season. He'll look to prove his health over the final month of the campaign with the hope of securing a meaningful role in the Seattle bullpen heading into 2020.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Promotion likely imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (forearm), who was charged with a loss and a blown save in his most recent rehab outing for Triple-A Tacoma, is nevertheless a likely candidate to join the Mariners when rosters expand Sunday, Greg Johns of reports.

Altavilla's stumble versus Fresno on Monday consisted of the right-hander allowing four earned runs on a hit, a walk and a hit batsman over just one-third of an inning. However, those struggles are basically an outlier, considering Altavilla had allowed just one earned run over his first five rehab outings prior to his struggles against the Grizzlies. He'll likely be utilized as a middle reliever and setup option upon joining the big-league bullpen for the final month of the regular season.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Impressive in latest rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (forearm) fired a scoreless eighth inning during which he issued a walk and recorded two strikeouts in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Salt Lake on Tuesday.

Altavilla continues to dominate at the Triple-A level in his rehab assignment, with Tuesday's outing qualifying as his third consecutive scoreless appearance with the Rainiers. Altavilla appears ready to head back to the big leagues at any time and could be a factor as a setup option for the Mariners down the stretch.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Another scoreless rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (forearm) fired 1.1 scoreless innings in Triple-A Tacoma's win over Fresno on Saturday, allowing a hit while recording a strikeout.

It was just the latest impressive rehab outing for Altavilla, who appears to be ready for activation at any point moving forward. The right-hander reportedly hit the upper 90s with his fastball in Thursday's rehab appearance, and he fired 11 of 16 pitches for strikes Saturday in another razor-sharp outing. With two dominant turns at the level closest to the majors, Altavilla appears on track to beat the original projection of an early-September return.

August 17, 2019 10:28 AM
Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Almost back to full strength
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (forearm), who fired a scoreless inning for Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday during which he walked one and struck out two, saw his fastball clock in as high as 98 mph, Greg Johns of reports.

The right-hander may be on a slightly accelerated return timeline considering this report, even though he's logged just a pair of rehab appearances thus far. Altavilla has been progressively ramping up his activity level for some time now, however, so he may not need more than one additional minor-league outing before jumping back into action at the big-league level.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Rehab moving to Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (forearm) is moving his rehab assignment to Triple-A Tacoma, Greg Johns of reports.

Altavilla breezed through his first rehab outing with Low-A Everett on Sunday, and the Mariners have apparently decided a more stringent test is in order for his second appearance. The right-hander is still projected to remain in the minors for the remainder of August before possibly being activated when rosters expand in September.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Solid in first rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (forearm) fired a perfect fifth inning in Low-A Everett's loss to Hillsboro on Sunday, recording two strikeouts.

It was unsurprisingly a strong outing for Altavilla, who was facing a level of competition he was expected to do well against. The right-hander fired 15 pitches overall, nine which found the strike zone. Altavilla is projected for additional minor-league outings, and he's likely to move up at least one level for his next appearance.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Rehab assignment location set
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (forearm) will begin his rehab assignment with Low-A Everett on Sunday, Greg Johns of reports.

The fact Altavilla would begin a rehab assignment Sunday had already been revealed, but the exact affiliate hadn't been disclosed until Saturday. The right-hander is expected to throw an inning in his first appearance and should need at least three or four outings before activation is considered.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Cleared for rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment Sunday, Greg Johns of reports.

Altavilla managed to throw a simulated game Thursday without issue, clearing the way for the right-hander to head out on a rehab stint. Seattle hasn't specified where he'll pitch in the minors just yet, but he figures to need at least a handful of appearances, considering he's been sidelined since July 6 with a strained flexor mass in his right elbow.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Live batting practice on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (forearm) threw a bullpen session Monday and will throw live batting practice Thursday, Greg Johns of reports.

Altavilla has been making steady progress over the last week-plus since initiating a throwing program July 27. The veteran right-hander could embark on a rehab assignment if he's able to get through his live batting practice session without setbacks.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Bullpen session coming this weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (elbow) has continued to play catch regularly and is slated for a 20-to-25-pitch bullpen session this weekend, Greg Johns of reports.

The right-handed reliever began a throwing program last Saturday and continued to follow it throughout the week. If Altavilla's weekend bullpen goes off without a hitch, he could head out on a rehab assignment shortly thereafter.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Throws for first time since injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla (elbow) played catch prior to Saturday's game against the Angels, the Associated Press reports.

The recovering reliever remains weeks away from a return, but the fact he was able to pick up a baseball again shortly into the second half is reason for cautious optimism that he'll eventually be able to contribute before the 2019 campaign wraps up. There were concerns Altavilla might require Tommy John surgery when he initially suffered his injury in a July 5 appearance, but a subsequent MRI revealed his ulnar collateral ligament was free of any damage. Altavilla is presumably still weeks away from a minor-league rehab assignment.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Will avoid Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The MRI that Altavilla (elbow) underwent Sunday revealed no damage to his ulnar collateral ligament, meaning he'll avoid season-ending Tommy John surgery, Greg Johns of reports.

While he contends with a strained flexor mass in his right elbow, Altavilla will require at least a month or two of rehab, so the 26-year-old could be a shutdown candidate if he fails to show meaningful improvement by the end of August. That said, the fact that he'll at least steer clear of Tommy John surgery and the year-and-a-half recovery timeline that typically accompanies the procedure is a positive development for the right-hander. Injury and ineffectiveness has limited Altavilla to just seven appearances out of the big-league bullpen in 2019.

Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Facing potential UCL injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a potential UCL injury in his right elbow, Greg Johns of reports.

Altavilla felt something in his elbow while pitching Friday and is set to undergo an MRI to determine the specifics of the injury. The early indication of a UCL issue could put the 26-year-old's season in doubt, but there won't be a timeline for his return until the MRI results are announced.

June 22, 2019 09:44 AM
Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Called up Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

Altavilla recently moved from Double-A Arkansas to Triple-A and now makes his way back to the majors. The 26-year-old allowed three runs over two-thirds of an inning earlier this season and should serve in a low-leverage role out of the bullpen.

May 13, 2019 05:44 PM
Mariners' Dan Altavilla: Returned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Altavilla was optioned to Double-A Arkansas on Monday.

Altavilla made just one appearance with the big club before being shipped back to the minors, allowing three earned runs on four walks and a hit while recording just one out in that outing. Austin Adams was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move.
