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...

2013 Cubs Prospects In Review: Arodys Vizcaino

Arodys Vizcaino came into pro ball as a Yankees J2 signing in 2007 out of the Dominican Republic. Nobody seems to have his signing bonus listed anywhere, so let's assume it was a pittance. He went straight to the Gulf Coast League in 2008 and began moving up the prospect ranks, finishing the 2009 season as the Yankees' third best prospect according to BA, wielding monster...

Arodys Vizcaino May Pitch in the Arizona Fall League

It has been a bad year for recovery from Tommy John surgery. Prior to this season, it seemed that the recovery was becoming routine. Twelve to fourteen months after, most pitchers seemed to be back in the majors and doing OK. 2013? Not so much. Ryan Madson, Cory Luebke, Daniel Hudson, Scott Baker, Joe Wieland, Neftali Feliz, Kyle Drabek, and Arodys Vizcaino are all behind that...

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.
