|Arodys Vizcaino pitches scoreless inning in spring debut |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/3/14) Cubs pitcher Arodys Vizcaino threw a perfect eighth inning in Monday's 4-2 win over the Brewers.
Vizcaino has missed the past two seasons after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He made 17 appearances with the Braves in 2011 as a 20-year-old, going 1-1 with a 4.67 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 17:9 K:BB ratio in 17 1/3 innings.

(2/22/14) Cubs pitching prospect Arodys Vizcaino raised a few eyebrows as he threw batting practice on Saturday. Two of them belong to Rick Renteria.
"He looked very, very good," Renteria told ESPN. "We were very pleased with his session. Very sharp. Live fastball. Was hitting his spots, burying his pitches when he needed to."
Vizcaino missed the last two seasons after undergoing Tommy John surgery and experiencing bone chips in his elbow. But he just turned 23 in November.
|Cubs manager provides positive update on Arodys Vizcaino |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/16/14) Cubs pitcher Arodys Vizcaino, who has missed the last two seasons recovering from Tommy John surgery, threw his first side session of spring training Saturday, according to MLB.com.
"The ball came out of his hand pretty easy," manager Rick Renteria said of Vizcaino. "He stayed down in the zone pretty consistently in his 'pen today. He looked comfortable, very fit. I think he looked as good as we would want him to look at this point."
The Cubs aren't putting a timetable on the right-hander's return, but when Vizcaino is ready, it appears he's headed for a bullpen role.
"Obviously, it's been a long road back," Renteria said. "He's got some skill. The ball really comes out of his hand easily. His breaking pitches have some bite to them. Even as you're watching him work his bullpens, he has some presence on the mound. His demeanor is very professional."
|Arodys Vizcaino a bullpen option |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/5/13) According to CSNChicago.com, Cubs president Theo Epstein sees right-hander Arodys Vizcaino as a bullpen candidate in 2014 after saying last offseason that the Cubs viewed him as a starter.
Vizcaino, who the Cubs acquired from the Braves in a 2012 deal for Paul Maholm, is still working his way back from Tommy John surgery but has been "electric" in outings this fall, throwing 98 mph.
|Arodys Vizcaino has taken so long to recover from Tommy John surgery, having missed all of the last two seasons, that you may have forgotten where we left off with him. He was a late-season call-up for the Braves in 2011, working in late relief, but an organization like the Cubs may want to give a pitcher of his pedigree an opportunity to start first. After such a difficult rehabilitation, most talent evaluators would say that ship has already sailed, so you shouldn't bank on it in long-term keeper leagues. But until Vizcaino is firmly entrenched in the bullpen, you shouldn't discount the possibility either. Unless he lights it up in spring training, which is certainly possible given his high-90s fastball, he'll get a chance to work out the kinks in the minors before presumably arriving midseason. Given all the uncertainties with him, he probably isn't worth a draft-and-stash in NL-only leagues.
