Braves' Jonathan Aro: Reaches deal with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aro agreed Thursday with the Braves on a minor-league contract, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The 28-year-old had a cup of coffee in the big leagues with Seattle in 2016 but has pitched exclusively at the Triple-A level the past two seasons. As a member of Triple-A El Paso in the Padres organization in 2018, Aro accrued a 3.89 ERA and 1.30 WHIP across 44 frames. He'll likely function as a depth arm for Atlanta during the upcoming season and is a long shot to surface in the big leagues.

Padres' Jonathan Aro: Signs NRI deal with Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aro agreed to a minor-league deal with the Padres on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training.

Aro spent the last couple years in the Mariners' organization but missed a decent chunk of last season after a violation of the minor-league drug policy. He's only appeared in seven major-league games over the course of his career, and pitched 42.2 innings at the Triple-A level in 2017. During that time with Tacoma, he posted a 3.16 ERA and 1.00 WHIP, which was good enough to land him an invitation to a big-league camp with the Padres for this upcoming spring. He will serve as organizational depth in the club's bullpen moving forward.

Mariners' Jonathan Aro: Suspended 50 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aro was slapped with a 50-game suspension after violating the minor-league drug policy, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Aro hadn't appeared in a minor-league game as he was awaiting his suspension. The 26-year-old will likely head back to a minor-league bullpen role once he's eligible to return.

Mariners' Jonathan Aro: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aro was reassigned to minor-league camp Friday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The Mariners made their final round of roster cuts to get down to 25 men on Friday with Opening Day approaching. Aro was hit hard throughout the spring, notching a 6.57 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP. He figures to slot into a bullpen role at either Double-A or Triple-A.

Mariners' Jonathan Aro: Clears waivers Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aro cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.

The right-hander was DFA'd last week to make room on the 40-man roster for Tuffy Gosewisch, but after not garnering any interest during his waiver period, he'll head back to Triple-A to develop more. Aro did still receive an invitation to big league camp for spring training, but his chances of cracking the major league roster are certainly lower given his standing in the organization.

Mariners' Jonathan Aro: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aro was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Thursday, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

The move was to make room for Tuffy Gosewisch, whom the Mariners claimed off waivers from Atlanta. Aro hasn't pitched particularly well in his major league appearances to date, posting a 6.55 ERA across 11.0 innings. He did enjoy success with Seattle's Triple-A affiliate in 2016, registering a 2.48 ERA over 36.1 innings.

Mariners' Jonathan Aro: Optioned to Triple-A Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aro was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.

Aro was optioned in a corresponding move with the M's signing righty reliever Tom Wilhelmsen to a one-year deal. He appeared in one game in his stint in majors. At the Triple-A level this season, Aro has pitched 33 innings and posted a 2.45 ERA and 1.09 WHIP.

Mariners' Jonathan Aro: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aro was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

The 25-year-old righty reliever had a 2.45 ERA but just 24 strikeouts in 33 innings at Triple-A. Aro is expected to work in low-leverage situations for the time being.

Mariners' Jonathan Aro: Progressing at Triple-A Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aro has a 0.97 WHIP and 1.46 ERA after pitching 24.2 innings in 16 games at Triple-A Tacoma.

The need for further development at the Triple-A level was evident after Aro gave up eight runs in only 10.1 innings during his first ever stints in the MLB last season. Thus far, he seems to be making the most of the opportunity to improve, holding opponents to a .186 batting average. Aro will likely stay at Tacoma for the time being, as Seattle's bullpen is dominating with a 2.43 ERA and .192 opponent batting average. While in Triple-A, Aro will look to increase his strikeout rate and improve his K/BB ratio of 2.13.

Mariners' Jonathan Aro: Traded to Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aro was traded to the Mariners on Monday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

Wade Miley was the big haul for the Mariners in the deal, but Aro could help out the major league team next season as well. The 25-year-old put up impressive numbers in the minors last season, including a 3.14 ERA with 53 strikeouts in 51.2 innings at Triple-A, but struggled after earning a promotion to the majors so he may begin the year back down in the minors.

Red Sox pitcher Jonathan Aro may start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Sox pitcher Jonathan Aro is being considered for a start Friday, The Boston Globe reports. 

The Red Sox are looking to get extra rest for their young starters, particularly Eduardo Rodriguez, which means going with a sixth starter.

Unfortunately, they've shut down Joe Kelly (shoulder) and have no other healthy depth starters. So, they're going to need a couple of games where they cobble together multiple relievers.

Red Sox pitcher Jonathan Aro takes loss Tuesday
by CBS Sports Staff |

Red Sox pitcher Jonathan Aro (2-1) surrendered a hit, an earned run and a walk over two-plus innings in a 6-5, extra-inning defeat to the Orioles on Tuesday. 

Aro made his first appearance after his most recent call-up from Triple-A Pawtucket, and the rookie reliever allowed the first two Orioles to reach base in the 13th, setting the stage for Chris Davis' game-winning hit.

The Red Sox figure to retain Aro on the major league roster for the remainder of the 2015 season in an effort to provide him with experience and to give some relief to their tired bullpen.
