Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Heads back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals optioned Oviedo to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

After giving up three runs on five hits and six walks over 4.1 innings to take a no-decision in his start Monday versus the Pirates, Oviedo will be sent to the minors to refine his control. Due to upcoming off days Thursday and next Monday, the Cardinals will be able to get by with a four-man rotation until Aug. 7 versus the Royals. Oviedo could be called up from Triple-A that day to serve as the fifth starter.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Wild in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo allowed three runs on five hits and six walks while striking out six in 4.1 innings, taking a no-decision versus Cincinnati on Sunday.

The six walks allowed matched a season high for the right-hander, although he was able to limit the damage. The lack of control caused Oviedo to need 98 pitches (55 strikes) to complete 4.1 innings, which wasn't enough to qualify for the win. The 23-year-old's ERA inched up to 4.91 with a 1.57 WHIP and 51:37 K:BB through 62.1 innings this year. If he continues to stick in the rotation, Oviedo lines up for a home start versus Minnesota next weekend.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Getting ball again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo is scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Reds.

After being called up from Triple-A Memphis to start Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Oviedo looked on track to earn his first win of the season, but a meltdown by the bullpen undid most of his good work (one run allowed over five innings). Still, Oviedo's outing was solid enough for him to garner another start for the banged-up Cardinals, who are lacking in healthy alternatives for the rotation.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Strong effort wasted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo allowed one earned run on three hits and one walk while striking out five across five innings Tuesday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.

Oviedo struggled throughout the first half of the season, but he will likely be needed with several of the Cardinals' starters sidelined by injury. He responded with one of his best outings of the campaign, holding the Cubs to only one run that came in the second frame. He exited the contest with a 4-1 lead, but a meltdown in the ninth inning by the bullpen denied him his first win of the season. Oviedo now has a 4.81 ERA with a 45:31 K:BB across 58 innings on the campaign.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Call-up official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals recalled Oviedo from Triple-A Memphis ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday versus the Cubs.

St. Louis will plug Oviedo back into the rotation for his 12th start of the season despite his less-than-stellar results to close the first half. Over his final four starts prior to being demoted to Triple-A, Oviedo posted a 6.11 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in 17.2 innings. With regular rotation members Jack Flaherty (oblique), Miles Mikolas (forearm) and Carlos Martinez (thumb) all residing on the 60-day injured list, the Cardinals are short on quality alternatives, so Oviedo will be given another chance to try and right the ship.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo will be recalled from Triple-A Memphis to start Tuesday against the Cubs, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Oviedo has failed to impress in 11 starts and one relief appearance at the big-league level this season, posting a 5.09 ERA. That number looks well deserved, given his poor combination of a 16.4 percent strikeout rate and 12.3 percent walk rate. He could be needed for multiple starts down the stretch, however, as the Cardinals currently have four starters on the 60-day injured list.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The young right-hander made his final start before the All-Star break in Wednesday's loss to the Giants, so he'll head to Triple-A so he can continue receiving work in the minors. Oviedo is a strong bet to rejoin the rotation when the Cardinals require additional starters during the July 19-22 series versus the Cubs.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Remains winless
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo (0-5) allowed two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three over four innings in a loss to the Giants on Wednesday.

Oviedo struggled with his command again Wednesday. He managed to toss just 41 of his 80 pitches for strikes and walked four batters for the second time in his last three starts. He began the day with two straight walks and eventually loaded the bases before hitting Jason Vosler with a pitch to bring in the first run for the Giants. A pair of doubles would score another run the following inning but he was able to turn in two scoreless frames thereafter despite walking two more batters in the fourth. The 23-year-old has reached five innings just three times in 11 starts this season, making it difficult for him to pick up a win. He'll head into the All-Star break with a 5.09 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 40:30 K:BB over 53 innings.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Quality start in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 9-3 extra-inning win over the Rockies, allowing three runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out two.

The Cards did most of their scoring in the ninth and 10th innings, denying Oviedo his first career big-league win despite a solid effort at Coors Field. The right-hander has two quality starts, both of which have come in his last four trips to the mound, and he'll carry a 5.14 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 37:26 K:BB through 49 innings into his next outing.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Lasts only four innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo (0-4) was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Pirates after allowing five runs on six hits and four walks across four innings. He struck out five.

Oviedo has failed to complete five innings in all but two of his appearances this season and had another below-average outing on the mound, as he dropped a second straight decision while showing a severe lack of control. In addition to his four walks, he also tossed 39 of his 90 pitches outside the strike zone. The right-hander owns a woeful 5.23 ERA while posting a 35:25 K:BB across 43 innings (nine starts) this season.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Implodes against Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo (0-3) allowed six runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out one across 3.2 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Tigers.

Oviedo worked through three fairly routine scoreless innings but was hit hard in the fourth frame. In that disastrous final inning, he walked two, threw a wild pitch, made a throwing error and finally surrendered a three-run home run. Ironically, his fielding mishap aided his final line by making the majority of the runs against him unearned. Though he delivered seven scoreless innings in his previous outing, Oviedo still has a 4.62 ERA with only a 30:21 K:BB across 39 frames on the campaign.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Shines in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo struck out four and allowed six hits in seven shutout innings, not factoring into the decision in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Marlins.

Wednesday's outing was by far the righty's best start of the season to date. Not only did Oviedo yield fewer than two runs for the first time since his April 11 season debut, he also recorded more than 15 outs for the first time in 2021. The 23-year-old was incredibly efficient as well, not issuing any walks and requiring just 87 pitches to get through the seven frames. Oviedo is expected to make his next start Tuesday against the Tigers.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Hit hard Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo gave up four earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five in 4.1 innings Friday against the Cubs. He did not factor in the decision.

He has now failed to log more than 4.1 innings in five straight outings, which makes it difficult to deploy him in most fantasy formats. Oviedo is only in the rotation because four of the Cardinals' top starters are on the injured list. He could get another start in the middle of next week, either at home for the Marlins or in Atlanta.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: No-decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo allowed two runs on three hits and two walks across four innings during Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Reds. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

Oviedo was called upon to start Saturday's game with Jack Flaherty landing on the injured list with an oblique injury earlier in the week. The right-hander was pulled after just 65 pitches, likely due to him not being fully stretched out. A solo home run by Jonathan India in the third and an RBI single by Tucker Barnhart in the fourth wound up biting the 23-year-old, but the Cardinals were able to land him a no-decision by tying the game at 2-2 after he exited. St. Louis has off days Monday and Thursday, so it's unclear if Oviedo will get a start during the next turn through the rotation.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo will start Saturday's game against the Reds, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Oviedo was called up Tuesday, and he'll get the chance to work out of the rotation with Jack Flaherty (oblique) on the injured list. In five appearances (four starts) for the Cardinals this year, the righty has posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 20 innings.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old will rejoin the Cardinals ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Dodgers with Jack Flaherty (oblique) landing on the injured list. Flaherty isn't expected to return anytime soon, and Oviedo could be in the mix to fill the open rotation spot.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.

Oviedo started Friday's game in Arizona and allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and six walks while striking out three in 4.1 innings. He'll remain with the taxi squad, so he could be available if injuries occur in the Cardinals' pitching staff. Right-hander Junior Fernandez was recalled in a corresponding move.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Wild in inefficient start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Oviedo allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and six walks while striking out three across 4.1 innings against Arizona on Friday. He did not factor in the decision.

Oviedo was called up Friday and given a chance to start against one of the league's least successful teams. He was given plenty of offensive support -- St. Louis scored four runs in the first inning -- but needed 91 pitches (only 48 of which were strikes) to get through 4.1 frames and couldn't stick around long enough to quality for the win. The right-hander again got himself into trouble by issuing too many free passes, issuing six walks after yielding five across two innings in his previous appearance. Oviedo's 5.40 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 15:16 K:BB on the season are far from impressive, but he could get another start, which would likely come against Cincinnati next week.

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

Oviedo was recalled by the Cardinals ahead of Friday's start against the White Sox.

Oviedo made four appearances (three starts) for the Cardinals earlier in the season and posted a 5.74 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 15.2 innings during that time. Since Miles Mikolas (forearm) is back on the injured list, Oviedo could also start during next week's series in Cincinnati.

Cardinals' Johan Oviedo: Slated to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals will call up Oviedo from Triple-A Memphis to start Friday's game against the White Sox, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

With Miles Mikolas (forearm) having recently returned to the injured list and the Cardinals' next off day not coming until June 7, Oviedo will join the big club while it temporarily rolls out a six-man rotation. Oviedo has previously made four appearances (three starts) for St. Louis this season, posting a 5.74 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 13:9 K:BB in 15.2 innings. After Friday's outing, Oviedo will presumably make another start during next week's series in Cincinnati before he likely heads back to Memphis.
