Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Called up by St. Louis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo was recalled by the Cardinals on Thursday.

Oviedo was called up by the Cardinals as they prepare to play five games in four days to end the regular season. He's worked solely as a starter in his first five major-league outings, but he should come out of the bullpen to finish the regular season since the Cardinals have confirmed their starters for the rest of the week. The right-hander carries a 5.47 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over 24.2 innings this year.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Possibility for Tuesday?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo could be a candidate for promotion from the alternate training site in Springfield to start Tuesday's game against the Royals, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Manager Mike Shildt has already designated Adam Wainwright and Carlos Martinez for two of the games in the series, but Tuesday remains open. Shildt joked that he's put in a name in what he terms "heavy pencil" as a tentative option for that contest; Rogers speculates that Oviedo, who would be pitching on regular rest, is a possibility to be called back up and draw the assignment.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Sent down Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo was optioned to the alternate training site Thursday, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Oviedo covered 5.1 innings and gave up six runs (five earned) to take the loss in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Brewers, and he'll head to the alternate site with the Cardinals scheduled for another twin bill Friday. The 22-year-old has a 5.47 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 16:10 K:BB over 24.2 innings, and he could rejoin the team next week to pitch in the doubleheader Sept. 25.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Struggles in nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo (0-3) allowed six runs (five earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over 5.1 innings in a loss in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Brewers. He also hit three batters.

Oviedo was wild and ineffective in his return to action, although he was able to spare the bullpen from seeing much work. The right-hander has a 5.47 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 16:10 K:BB across 24.2 innings this season. It's uncertain if the 22-year-old Oviedo will be used as a starter again in 2020.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo (illness) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of his start during Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Brewers, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Oviedo hasn't been very dominant during his first four major-league starts as he's allowed at least two runs in each of his outings. The right-hander came into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, but he continually tested negative while he was sidelined. He'll return to the mound for the second game of Wednesday's nightcap and should be available going forward.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Getting closer to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo (illness) threw a socially-distanced flat-ground bullpen session Sunday and could potentially start the second game of a doubleheader Wednesday against the Brewers, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Oviedo was placed on the list due to having come in contact with an infected individual, but he's repeatedly tested negative over a five-day period and has already been quarantined. With the right-hander seemingly healthy, president of baseball operations John Mozeliak noted Monday that Oviedo could be cleared to return and pitch Game 2 of Wednesday's twin bill if he has one more negative COVID test on Tuesday.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Still on right track with testing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo (illness) has continued to test negative for COVID-19 and could throw a socially-distanced bullpen session this weekend, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The 22-year-old right-hander was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Thursday after coming in contact with an infected individual, but thus far, Oviedo appears to have gotten through unscathed. The team will need to see him continue to produce negative results for a certain, undefined number of days before allowing him back among his teammates, but the bullpen session, which would be conducted with only a catcher and other limited personnel, would be one way to keep his arm loose and in shape. "We'll keep him moving around," Shildt said. "We've got a tentative plan for him, but it's really just going to be required on him testing negative."

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Could return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo, who is on the COVID-19 injured list, could return to the rotation for Monday's doubleheader against the Brewers, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

He came into contact with someone who had exposure to the virus and tested positive, but Oviedo is symptom-free and has tested negative. He will continue self-isolating and receiving daily testing. General manager John Mozeliak said a Sunday return is unlikely but Oviedo might be able to start one half of Monday's doubleheader against the Brewers if he continues to test negative and shows no symptoms.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Lands on COVID-19 IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo was placed on the injured list Thursday.

The team didn't specify the reason for Oviedo landing on an unspecified injured list, but the team needed to clear a 40-man roster spot with the move, so it is either the COVID-19 IL or the 45-day IL, and there is no known injury. The Cardinals have a doubleheader seemingly every other day down the stretch, so they could use Oviedo back as soon as possible. He may not have the virus, but could have been exposed, so if he can get multiple negative tests, he could be back in short order.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Takes loss against Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo (0-2) took the loss against the Cubs on Monday, allowing five runs (three earned) on eight hits and three walks across 4.2 innings. He struck out one.

Oviedo faced traffic in four out of five innings he worked Monday. He was able to limit the Cubs to a single run in the first, third and fourth innings, before having to labor through a pair of errors in a two-run fifth. The right-hander was tagged with the loss while being unable to work out of the fifth, though it's worth noting the start could have been a different story had it been for some cleaner defense behind him. He will try again for his first win when he takes the ball Saturday against the Reds.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Fans five over 4.2 frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo allowed three runs on three hits and one walk over 4.2 innings during Wednesday's loss at Cincinnati. He had five strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.

Oviedo gave up only one run through four-plus frames, but a two-run homer from Tucker Barnhart and a hit by pitch spelled an end to his outing during the fifth inning. The 22-year-old has a 4.30 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 10:5 K:BB through 14 innings, and he lines up to pitch Monday against the Cubs.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Joins starting rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Mike Shildt said Saturday that Oviedo will join the Cardinals' starting rotation in the near future, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Daniel Ponce de Leon was optioned to the Cardinals' alternate training site Saturday, so Oviedo will claim his spot in the rotation for now. Oviedo has made two starts for the Cardinals to begin the season, and he allowed four runs on six hits and four walks while striking out five over 10 innings. He should take the mound on the road Wednesday against the Reds.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Solid in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo (0-1) allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out one across five innings to take the loss Thursday in the second game of the Cardinals' doubleheader against the Pirates.

Oviedo surrendered both of his earned runs in the second inning, allowing four consecutive hitters to reach base while also throwing a wild pitch. He limited the Pirates otherwise, setting down the side in order in three of his five innings. The outing was Oviedo's second career start, and it's unclear when he may take another turn in the rotation as the team has no scheduled doubleheaders until Sept. 5.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Getting another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo is slated to start the second game of the Cardinals' doubleheader Thursday against the Pirates, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Oviedo will earn another turn start after he impressed in his big-league debut Aug. 19 against the Cubs, striking out four and allowing two runs over five innings to take a no-decision. Though Oviedo doesn't have a permanent spot in St. Louis' rotation, the team's spate of cancellations earlier in August will leave the Cardinals with few off days and several doubleheaders over the rest of the season. With that in mind, Oviedo could continue to make at least semi-regular starts so long as he continues to perform capably.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Effective in major-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo allowed two earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out four across five innings in the second game of the Cardinals's doubleheader against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.

Oviedo made his major-league debut and provided valuable innings to the Cardinals. He limited the Cubs to only one extra-base hit and induced 16 called strikes to go along with 10 swinging strikes in 89 total pitches. Oviedo won't stick as a permanent member of the Cardinals' rotation, but he may called upon in similar circumstances given the number of doubleheaders on the team's schedule.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Contract selected for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo had his contract selected by the Cardinals and will start Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

The 22-year-old will likely pitch as long as possible with the Cardinals playing their third doubleheader in the past five days. Oviedo spent most of the 2019 campaign at Double-A Springfield and had a 5.65 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 128:64 K:BB over 113 innings.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Expected to start evening game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo is expected to be called up to start the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

The transaction isn't expected to be made official until after the conclusion of the first game. Oviedo is at least a moderately interesting prospect, with good stuff held back by poor command, but it's tough to project him for immediate success. He's yet to pitch above Double-A and struggled to a 5.65 ERA in 23 starts at that level for Springfield last season, with a 12.4 percent walk rate offsetting his 24.9 percent strikeout rate.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Snags spot on player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo is part of the player pool that will join the Cardinals for summer camp beginning July 1, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The hard-throwing righty is one of the particularly intriguing inclusions in the 44-man group that will begin working at Busch Stadium on Wednesday. Oviedo raised expectations to an extent during Grapefruit League play by posting a solid 3.18 ERA and compiling seven strikeouts over 5.2 innings across four appearances. The 22-year-old right-hander may still be much likelier to be part of a non-active roster of up to 30 players that will train off-site once the regular season begins, however, considering he struggled to the tune of a 5.65 ERA and 1.63 WHIP over 113 innings across 23 starts at Double-A Springfield in 2019.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Could break through in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo, who posted a 3.18 ERA and recorded seven strikeouts over 5.2 Grapefruit League innings before spring training was suspended, is believed capable of thriving as either a late-inning reliever or starter, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Oviedo's spring performance turned heads, and it was particularly encouraging considering his first taste of Double-A Springfield last season was somewhat of a mixed bag. The stocky 22-year-old pitched to an elevated 5.65 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 113.0 innings, but his 10.0 K/9 over his two minor-league stops led the organization. Oviedo also placed an emphasis on diet and nutrition this offseason, leading to a 10.0 percent drop in body fat and increased stamina. Oviedo has been projected by many as a good middle-of-the-rotation prospect due to an arsenal that includes a 98-mph fastball, but Goold notes that power could also make him a late-inning relief candidate as early as this season, given expanded rosters and likely need for extra arms.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Joining big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo was invited to the Cardinals' big-league camp Friday.

Oviedo is an interesting prospect, but he'll likely need some more work in the minors before he's seriously pushing for a big-league roster spot. He recorded an unimpressive 5.65 ERA in 23 starts for Double-A Springfield last season, as his 24.9 percent strikeout rate wasn't enough to offset his poor 12.5 percent walk rate.
