Rays pitcher Xavier Cedeno loses scoreless innings streak Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Rays pitcher Xavier Cedeno finally gave up a run in Tampa Bay's 5-0 loss to the Athletics on Saturday. Cedeno entered the game riding a 12-inning scoreless streak, but came on in the sixth with runners on first and third. He gave up a shot back up the middle to Eric Sogard to break the streak.

"I didn't get [the pitch] all the way out there," Cedeno said to MLB.com. "I fell behind, and then I had to go right after him, and he took care of me." 

Cedeno now has a 2.31 ERA in 11 2/3 innings of work this season.

"Everything felt good, I just didn't make the pitches," Cedeno said. "And the guys got pretty good wood on it and took advantage of it. ... It's just baseball. It happens sometimes."

Dodgers trade LHP Xavier Cedeno to Rays for cash


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/27/2015) The Dodgers announced Monday they have traded left-handed reliever Xavier Cedeno to the Rays in exchange for cash considerations. It's the second time in six days that Cedeno has been dealt, as he came over to the Dodgers from Washington on April 22. 

"He hasn't thrown in a while. I'm sure he's got to go through all the physicals and get checked out, but we're excited," Rays manager Kevin Cash said, per The Tampa Tribune. "[Pitching coach Jim Hickey] and I factoring in a lefty reliever will definitely be helpful."

Cedeno did not appear in a game with the Dodgers and had been designated for assignment by the team. So far this season, he's pitched in five games for the Nationals, with an ERA of 6.00. 


Nationals trade Xavier Cedeno traded to Dodgers for cash


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) The Nationals have traded pitcher Xavier Cedeno to the Dodgers for cash considerations, the team announced. 

Cedeno appeared in five games for Washington, posting a 6.00 ERA with four strikeouts in three innings of work. He'll join the team's 25-man roster and will likely be available starting Friday, MLB.com reports.

"He spins the ball real well and he's got a good feel for pitching," president of baseball operationas Andrew Friedman said. "We feel like there's potentially some tweaks here or there that could potentially untap more. But he's got the necessary ingredients to potentially be good. So we'll see what we have with him after our guys get a chance to work with him."

The Dodgers cleared a roster spot for Cedeno Wednesday when they designated pitcher Daniel Corcino for assignment. Corcino appeared in just one game four Double-A Tulsa, last 2/3 of an inning with one strikeout and three walks.

Xavier Cedeno costs Gio Gonzalez, Nationals a win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez left the mound in line for the win, but a rough night by reliever Xavier Cedeno ended up giving Gonzalez the defeat. 

Gonzalez gave up five hits and four walks in six and a third innings. He left with the bases loaded, still leading the Phillies 1-0. 

"I was trying to be too perfect. I walked people, hit a guy. Just when you think you are on a fast pace, they slow you down and that's what happened," Gonzalez said per MLB.com. "I was nitpicking the corners. They kept fouling off pitches. They worked the count pretty well. I did a good job, but at the end of the day, they battled and they did a great job."

Cedeno gave up a single and a hit batter to the only two Phillies' batters he faced, allowing two runs to score. Craig Stammen allowed a single and a sacrifice fly, leaving Gonzalez with three runs allowed. 

Gonzalez next starts on Wednesday, at Boston against Wade Miley.
