The Nationals claimed Armenteros (elbow) off waivers from the Diamondbacks on Monday, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
Armenteros was non-tendered by the Astros earlier this offseason after missing the entire 2020 season while recovering from elbow surgery. The Diamondbacks initially claimed the right-hander off waivers, but he spent just over two weeks on their roster before being scooped up by Washington. The right-hander should be back to full health for spring training, when he'll most likely be competing for a spot in the Triple-A Fresno rotation. Armenteros previously made five appearances at the big-league level with Houston in 2019, posting a 4.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 18 innings.

The 26-year-old was recently removed from Houston's 40-man roster but will now receive an opportunity in Arizona. Armenteros missed the 2020 season while recovering from March elbow surgery. The 26-year-old made his big-league debut in 2019 and had a 4.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB across 18 innings (five appearances).
Armenteros (elbow) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The move is simply procedural and will clear a spot on the 40-man roster as Armenteros continues to recover from the elbow surgery he underwent in March. He could potentially be cleared to pitch prior to the end of the season, but it's unclear where he is in his recovery process.
Armenteros (elbow) was placed on the 10-day IL on Thursday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
This was expected, as Armenteros is still rehabbing from March elbow surgery. If all goes well, he could be cleared to pitch before the end of the season.
Armenteros (elbow) is still in rehab from March elbow surgery but could be cleared before the end of the season, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
The 26-year-old had a bone spur removed from his right elbow in mid-March and was given a four-month recovery timeline, so it appears he's avoided any significant setbacks. Armenteros was included in Houston's initial 60-man roster pool, which indicates he may not be sidelined too long.
Armenteros (elbow) is part of Houston's 60-man player pool.
Armenteros underwent surgery to remove a bone spur in March and was given a recovery time of four months, which puts his return about a week before the regular season is set to commence. Given the recent surgery, the Astros are probably not going to carry the right-hander on the active roster for Opening Day.
Armenteros (elbow) underwent surgery to have a bone spur removed from his right elbow Friday and is expected to be out four months, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
Armenteros had been shut down since Feb. 21 as a result of elbow and shoulder soreness, but he's now expected to be on the shelf for approximately four months prior to returning to action. The right-hander was expected to begin the season at Triple-A, but he could be in the minors for a longer period of time as he'll likely need to work back into game action once he's ready to return. Armenteros posted a 4.80 ERA and 85:31 K:BB over 84.1 innings with Triple-A Round Rock last season.
Armenteros (elbow and shoulder) underwent surgery Friday and will be out approximately eight weeks, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Armenteros was shut down Feb. 21 due to elbow and shoulder soreness. The details of the surgery are not clear at the moment, but the pitcher is expected to be out of action until mid-May. With the sports world currently in a hiatus, there's a possibility Armenteros will be able to resume baseball activities before missing an extended portion of the regular season.
Armenteros was shut down with elbow and shoulder soreness Firday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Armenteros made his major-league debut in 2019 and had a 4.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB in five outings (two starts). The 25-year-old figured to compete for a bullpen job in spring training, but that pursuit will be put on hold until he's cleared to throw.
Armenteros was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Armenteros (1-1) struggled in his start against the Athletics on Saturday, giving up five earned runs off seven hits and one walk while striking out three over four innings as he was charged with the loss. The right-hander will return to Round Rock, where he carries a 5.05 ERA with a 72:28 K:BB over 71.1 innings this season. Brad Peacock is expected to be activated off the injured list in a corresponding move, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Armenteros was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock prior to his start Saturday against the A's, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
He has a 1.93 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 15 strikeouts in 14 MLB innings, but three of his four appearances were out of the bullpen. Armenteros has logged six-plus innings in his last two starts for the Express, so he is certainly capable of qualifying for a win in Oakland.
Arementeros will start Saturday against the Athletics, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Armenteros was en route to Oakland on Friday but has not yet been officially added to the roster. The Astros are expected to clear a roster spot by sending Cy Sneed back to Triple-A Round Rock. Armenteros made one start for Houston earlier this season, yielding a run and striking out six over five innings July 21 against Texas.
Armenteros is a candidate to start Saturday against the Athletics, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Manager AJ Hinch is kicking around the idea of either a bullpen day, or calling up a starter from the minors. If he chooses a starter from the minors, the choice comes down to Armenteros or Framber Valdez. Armenteros last pitched for Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday, spinning 6.1 no-hit innings (four walks).
Armenteros was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Monday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
The Astros don't need a fifth starter until Aug. 3 thanks to a pair of off days, so Armenteros will head back to the minors for the time being. The 25-year-old right-hander looked solid in a pair of appearances during his most recent stint with the big club, posting a 1.00 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB in nine innings. Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding roster move.
Armenteros (1-0) gave up one run on two hits and two walks while striking out six through five innings to take the win over the Rangers on Sunday.
Armenteros limited the damage against the Rangers in his first MLB start to earn his first career win. The 25-year-old looked dominant at times, forcing 14 swinging strikes and retiring the final eight hitters he faced. Armenteros has a 1.93 ERA with a 9.6 K/9 and a 2.6 BB/9 through four appearances this season. Armenteros will make his next start against the Cardinals at Busch Stadium.
Armenteros will start Sunday's game at home against the Rangers, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Armenteros delivered four strong innings as the bulk reliever on three days rest Tuesday to earn himself the starting chance this weekend. The 25-year-old has a 9:2 K:BB and has allowed three runs (two earned) over nine innings this season, and Sunday will be the first start of his major-league career.
Armenteros allowed one unearned run on two hits and one walk while striking out three over four innings in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.
The Astros were caught in a bind with injuries to starters, prompting them to make Tuesday's game a bullpen start. Armenteros was called up to provide the bulk of the innings and admirably did so on three days rest -- the right-hander just threw 95 pitches Friday for Triple-A Round Rock. He's expected to head back to Triple-A while the Astros reassess their rotation beyond the top three starters.
Armenteros was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock prior to Tuesday's game against the Angels, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Armenteros is in line to serve as the bulk reliever for Tuesday's matchup. He'll enter the contest after Hector Rondon tosses the first inning or so as the opener.
Manager AJ Hinch told MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM that Armenteros will be called up from Triple-A Round Rock to serve as the Astros' bulk reliever in Tuesday's game against the Angels.
Houston is expected to make Armenteros' callup official later Tuesday, with Framber Valdez the most likely candidate to get sent back to Round Rock in a corresponding move. Hinch noted that Hector Rondon will open the contest, but he'll likely only work an inning or two before giving way to Armenteros. Since Armenteros tossed 95 pitches in his start with Round Rock four days ago, he'll likely have some sort of workload restriction in place even though he projects to see the most usage of any Houston pitcher Tuesday.
Armenteros will likely be recalled from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of Tuesday's game against the Angels, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
The Astros didn't make any roster moves immediately following Monday's 9-6 loss to the Angels, but the team is expected to send Framber Valdez to Triple-A in light of the lefty's poor showing as a primary pitcher behind Josh James. That would clear up a spot on the roster for Armenteros, who could be tasked with covering multiple innings in relief Tuesday while the Astros use an opener for the second straight day. Armenteros tossed six scoreless innings (95 pitches) in his last start for Round Rock on Friday, so if he does in fact receive a callup for Tuesday's contest, a workload restriction would undoubtedly be in place since he'll be taking the hill on only three days' rest.
