Dalier Hinojosa blew his first save chance and took a loss Wednesday after giving up hits to four of the five Reds he faced.

He allowed two runs to end the game in the bottom of the ninth. Hinojosa was set up to close the Phillies' opener, too, but David Hernandez's ugly start in the eighth meant there was no lead left in the ninth. Tonight, Hernandez did his job with a flawless eighth, but Hinojosa failed badly at his. Perhaps Hernandez will get the next save chance now. Alternatively, it could be James Russell if some lefties are due up in the ninth. The Phillies won't write off Hinojosa, but it's not like he was worthy of much confidence in the first place.
Apr 6 - 9:53 PM

Dalier Hinojosa gave up a two-run homer in the eighth to take a blown save and a loss Monday against the Blue Jays.

Darrell Ceciliani hit the homer. Hinojosa is getting talked up as a closer candidate for the Phillies, so this is pretty bad timing for him. He makes more sense as a setup man anyway. He has a 4.50 ERA and a 7/1 K/BB ratio in eight innings this spring.
Mar 28 - 3:52 PM

Dalier Hinojosa is a candidate to close for the Phillies this season.

Hinojosa, 30, was terrific for the Phillies last season after being claimed off waivers, posting a 0.78 ERA and 21/8 K/BB ratio over 23 innings. The success has carried over this spring with a 2.57 ERA and 7/1 K/BB ratio across seven frames. Hinojosa is competing with David Hernandez and Andrew Bailey for the closer role.

Red Sox signed RHP Dalier Hinojosa to a minor league contract.

Terms of the contract have not yet been disclosed. The 27-year-old right-hander defected from Cuba in January and was given clearance to sign with any MLB team in late July. While he worked as a starter in Cuba, many scouts believe that he'll be used out of the bullpen. He'll likely begin the 2014 season at Triple-A Pawtucket.

According to Jesse Sanchez of, Cuban right-hander Dalier Hinojosa has been cleared by the U.S. government and is free to sign with an MLB team.

Hinojosa, a former star pitcher for the Cuban national team, defected in January and has been petitioning MLB to become a free agent since. Standing at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, the 27-year-old is described by Sanchez as featuring a low-to-mid 90s fastball to go along with a slider, a curve, a two-seam fastball and a changeup. Because he's older than 23 and has at least three years' experience in Cuba's top league, he will not be subject to the international spending cap. The Cubs, Dodgers, Red Sox, and Yankees are among the teams who are believed to have interest.
