Juan Acevedo took the loss to the Giants today, giving up five runs -- four earned -- in the ninth inning.

Jason Ellison hit a grand slam off him. Acevedo still has a chance to win a bullpen spot, but he's something of a longshot.

Arizona catcher Chris Snyder said that Juan Acevedo has looked good in camp.

''The velocity is there, the cutter is sharp, and he's got good movement on his change-up,'' Snyder said. ''Yeah, I've been impressed.'' If he does manage to make the team he'll be used in middle relief.

Diamondbacks signed RHP Juan Acevedo to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.

Acevedo has been a bust the last two years, but there's a chance he could reemerge as an average middle reliever. It's not very likely that he'll make the Diamondbacks out of spring training.

Pirates released RHP Juan Acevedo from Triple-A Nashville.

Acevedo had a 9.00 ERA in 23 innings for Nashville.

Juan Acevedo has been suspended five games by the PCL after his ejection from a game Wednesday.

Acevedo is 0-3 with one save and a 10.13 ERA for Nashville. He shouldn't be missed.

Juan Acevedo gave up three runs in one inning of work for Triple-A Nashville on Friday night.

Those NL-only leaguers that drafted Acevedo with the hope of cheap saves can safely drop him off their reserve list.

Juan Acevedo took the loss in the Pirates game today, allowing three runs on one hit while issuing three walks in the eighth.

Acevedo is a candidate for the Pittsburgh closer job, but didn't help himself here.

Pirates signed RHP Juan Acevedo to a minor league contract.

Reason No. 349 why you don't claim Jason Boyd off waivers and then keep him on the 40-man roster all winter. Acevedo is at least as good of a bet in 2004. He'll compete for a bullpen spot in spring training.

Blue Jays released RHP Juan Acevedo.

Acevedo had a decent 4.26 ERA in 14 relief appearances for the Blue Jays, but his WHIP was a hideous 2.05. It doesn't seem very likely that he'll get another chance to pitch in the majors this season.

Juan Acevedo was charged with three earned runs and a loss Wednesday against the White Sox.

Acevedo was pulled after loading the bases in the ninth. All three runners scored off Dan Reichert. Acevedo is a shell of his former Tiger-self, but the Blue Jays don't have many choices in late inning situations. They expect Cliff Politte back next week, and he should get his job back.

Juan Acevedo blew the save for the Jays tonight, giving up one run in 1 2/3 innings against the Red Sox.

Acevedo retired four straight batters before giving up a walk, a stolen base and a single with two outs in the ninth inning. On the stolen base, Manny Ramirez, thinking he had ball four, walked right in front of the catcher as he was trying to throw to second base. A game-ending interference call probably should have been made, but it wasn't, and the Red Sox won in extra innings.

Blue Jays reinstated RHP Juan Acevedo from bereavement leave.

Acevedo, who had been away to attend a funeral, is expected to receive save opps until Cliff Politte returns.
Thu, Jul 3, 2003 10:32:00 PM

Manager Carlos Tosca said Juan Acevedo will get a trial as the Blue Jays closer when he returns from bereavement leave.

Why? Because he's done it before. Who cares if he's been awful this year? Acevedo is worth picking up in AL-only leagues, but there's a good chance he'll continue to struggle.
