Top 10: Chicago Cubs Prospects

As we enter the final throes of the Chicago Cubs 2014 season, Cubs fans have begun to look forward to the future. With prospects such as Kris Bryant, Jorge Soler, and Arodys Vizcaino all in AAA, it may not be unreasonable to suggest that 2015 could be a competitive year on the north side. However, it does not stop there, in AA and below, the Cubs have some true talent. 10. Victor...

Cubs have big plans for Arodys Vizcaino

Arodys Vizcaino stopped in the middle of the clubhouse and did a few dance moves. He swiped a piece of fruit from the table and began chatting with two Cubs staffers. That Saturday morning snapshot might have shown Vizcaino’s state of mind. This is someone who’s comfortable and confident almost two full years after the Tommy John surgery that knocked him off the fast track and...

Chicago Cubs Activate Arodys Vizcaino, Kyuji Fujikawa

The Chicago Cubs have activated right-handed relievers Arodys Vizcaino and Kyuji Fujikawa from the 60-day disabled list. Vizcaino, who had season-ending surgery back in May on his right elbow to remove calcium buildup should be 100% healthy and ready to go come spring training, but the news isn’t as good for Fujikawa. Having had to have Tommy John surgery back in June, he will...

Cubs prospect Arodys Vizcaino underwent surgery on elbow

For those Northsiders hoping to see Arodys Vizcaino in a Chicago Cubs uniform this season, you can forget about it.  The 22-year old prospect has undergone right elbow debridement surgery.  The surgery will not prevent him from pitching again this season, but it will in all likelihood prevent him from pitching enough to get called up. Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune says...

Cubs Land Vizcaino in Shrewd Move

Patience is a quality that can often enable teams to make the smartest trades. The Chicago Cubs know going in that the prize of their deal with the Braves, Arodys Vizcaino, will not be a factor in 2012. But, rather than settling for safer second rate prospects in exchange for Paul Maholm and Reed Johnson, they landed a young pitcher with immense upside.

Arodys Vizciano to Have Tommy John Surgery

The recent spat of injury news continued this morning, when the Braves announced that RHP Arodys Vizcaino was undergoing Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire 2012 season. Vizciano was rated the #2 prospect in the Braves system by Marc Hulet, and despite being just 21-years-old, he was in the mix for a Major League job at some point in 2012. While the Braves certainly have...

Top 50 Prospects: #30 – Arodys Vizcaino

#30 Arodys Vizcaino Atlanta Braves DOB: 11/13/1990 Previous Rank: N/R ETA: 2012 Due to the Braves’ outstanding mismanagement of the bullpen in Atlanta, they were forced to temporarily convert Vizcaino into a reliever for the last few months of the season.  He made 17 appearances for Atlanta and walked too many guys, but was otherwise effective and posted a 4.67 ERA and struck...
