Angels re-assigned LHPs Atahualpa Severino, Nate Smith and Sean Newcomb, RHP Trevor Gott, Cs Stephen McGee and Jackson Williams and SS Eric Stamets to minor league camp.
Severino has some big league experience, but his slight chance at an Opening Day roster spot pretty much went out the window when a visa issue delayed his arrival. The Angels' first-round pick in 2014, Newcomb has ample upside but needs a lot more experience. Mar 15 - 2:52 PM

Atahualpa Severino has yet to report to Angels' camp due to visa issues.

It doesn't appear at this point that the Angels think his absence might drag out too long. However, every day he misses is bad news for Severino, who is already a long shot to win a bullpen spot.

Braves signed LHP Atahualpa Severino to a minor league contract.

Severino spent last season in the minors between the Royals and Pirates, posting a solid 3.72 ERA and 48/13 K/BB ratio over 46 innings while holding left-handed batters to a .171/.234/.271 batting line. The 29-year-old could be a savvy pickup for Atlanta.

Royals signed LHP Atahualpa Severino to a minor league contract.

Severino had a 2.81 ERA over 46 relief appearances with the Nationals' Triple-A affiliate this season, despite an underwhelming 43/36 K/BB ratio over 48 innings. The 28-year-old southpaw figures to function as minor league depth in 2013.

Nationals sent LHP Atahualpa Severino outright to Triple-A Syracuse.

Severino had been designated for assignment in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Cesar Izturis. He'll return to a 2.72 ERA over 40 games at Syracuse this season.

Nationals designated LHP Atahualpa Severino for assignment.

The 27-year-old southpaw was booted from the 40-man roster to make space for newly-acquired shortstop Caesar Izturis. An amateur free agent originally signed by the Expos who remained in the organization after the move to D.C., Severino could very well clear waivers. He's posted a 2.91 ERA over seven seasons in the minors and is left-handed, however, so it also isn't out of the realm of possibility that another franchise could put in a claim.

Nationals optioned LHP Atahualpa Severino to Triple-A Syracuse.

Severino allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings this spring while striking out four and walking a pair. The 27-year-old southpaw appeared in six games with the Nats last season and will continue to serve as relief depth in the minors.
Thu, Mar 29, 2012 10:28:00 AM

Nationals recalled LHP Atahualpa Severino from Triple-A Syracuse.

The 26-year-old left-hander posted a 4.50 ERA and 38/23 K/BB ratio in 32 innings of relief this season at the Triple-A level. He will pitch in a middle relief role down the stretch.

Nationals optioned LHP Atahualpa Severino to Triple-A Syracuse.

Severino was called up from the minors on Sunday and didn't make an appearance during his brief stay with the team. The 26-year-old southpaw will return to a 3.00 ERA and 24/13 K/BB ratio over 16 innings at the Triple-A level this season.
Mon, Aug 1, 2011 11:35:00 PM

The 26-year-old lefty has registered a 3.00 ERA and 24/13 K/BB ratio in 21 innings of relief this season at the Triple-A level. He will operate as a middle reliever.
Sun, Jul 31, 2011 12:10:00 PM

Nationals recalled LHP Atahualpa Severino from Triple-A Syracuse.

Severino, 25, had a 3.55 ERA and a 35/22 K/BB ratio in 50 2/3 innings out of the pen for Syracuse. Lefties were hitting .288 off him, compared to .205 for right-handers, so he's definitely not going to be a specialist for the Nats.
