Luzardo (shoulder), who recorded five strikeouts and allowed two earned runs on five hits, two walks and a wild pitch over 3.1 innings in Triple-A Las Vegas' loss to Sacramento on Saturday, could make his major-league debut immediately after the All-Star break, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Gallegos reports Luzardo hit 99 mph in Saturday's start, an outing in which he worked up to 61 pitches. The left-hander is slated to log five innings and 75-80 pitches in his next start with the Aviators against Fresno on Thursday. He could then reach the 100-pitch threshold manager Bob Melvin previously emphasized Luzardo would need to hit as a requisite for a promotion in his July 2 Triple-A start, leaving him poised for a big-league debut immediately after the All-Star break. Gallegos separately notes Luzardo is also a candidate to eventually fill Frankie Montas' (suspension) spot in the rotation while the right-hander serves out his 80-game ban. Yesterday 12:27 am (EST)
- Luzardo (shoulder), who'll make his next start for Triple-A Las Vegas, will need to do more than just build up his pitch count before being considered for a promotion to the big leagues, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. "We want to make sure we get him to 100 pitches. But he's going to have to have results, he can't just go out there and pitch," manager Bob Melvin said. "If the results are there, we will look to try to get him here. I'm not going to put a timetable on it right now."
- Luzardo will make his next rehab start at Triple-A Las Vegas, which is likely to come Saturday, Katie Woo of MiLB.com reports.
- Luzardo (shoulder) fired three scoreless innings in High-A Stockton's win over San Jose on Tuesday, allowing two hits and recording two strikeouts. All Jesús Luzardo (L) News
