Yankees' Jose Mujica: At Triple-A with new organization
The Yankees assigned Mujica to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, Conor Foley of The Scranton Times-Tribune reports.
After spending the past two seasons in the Rockies organization, Mujica elected free agency last October and remained unsigned for most of the offseason until landing a minor-league deal with the Yankees on March 30. Due to his late arrival at spring training, Mujica remained at the Yankees' facility in Tampa for the first two-plus weeks of the minor-league season to continue his buildup program, but he's now ready to make his organizational debut. The 25-year-old right-hander's lone big-league action came in 2020, when he gave up six earned runs over 4.1 innings between his two relief appearances with the Rockies.... See More ... See Less

Mujica hasn't yet made his 2021 debut in the majors, but he's posted a 6.91 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 43 innings across nine starts in the minors to begin the year. He should serve mainly as a low-leverage reliever for Colorado after right-hander Antonio Santos was sent down in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less

The 24-year-old made his major-league debut last season, surrendering six runs on 10 hits with two walks and one strikeout over 4.1 innings. Mujica will likely operate as a spot starter or low-leverage bullpen option if he receives a promotion this season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Mujica: Allows four runs in spring start
Mujica (0-1) allowed four runs on five hits and one walk while striking out one over 1.2 innings and was charged with the loss in Monday's spring game against the Dodgers.
Mujica tossed one scoreless relief inning in his Cactus League debut, but his first start of the spring was less efficient. The righty faced most of the Dodgers' starters to begin Monday's game and allowed two runs in each of the first two frames. If Mujica makes the major-league roster to begin the 2021 campaign, he's likely to pitch in low-leverage situations.... See More ... See Less

Mujica was recalled by the Rockies ahead of Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.
Mujica will return to the major-league bullpen for the final series of the regular season after Chi Chi Gonzalez was sent down in a corresponding move. Mujica made his major-league debut during his first stint in the big leagues earlier in September, but he struggled as he gave up seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out one over 2.2 innings. He should play a lower-leverage role to finish the regular season.... See More ... See Less

The right-hander pitched effectively in the minors prior to missing the 2019 campaign as a result of Tommy John surgery, and he'll work to sort things out at alternate camp. Right-hander Ashton Goudeau was called up to take his place in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Mujica: Joins 28-man roster
Mujica was recalled by the Rockies on Friday.

The right-hander missed the entire 2019 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery but posted a 2.70 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over 36.2 innings during seven starts at the Triple-A level in 2018. He could be a candidate to start in Gray's place Monday.... See More ... See Less

Mujica did not make the Rockies' 30-man roster.
Mujica signed a minor-league deal with the Rockies in November after missing the entire 2019 season due to Tommy John surgery, but he'll begin the regular season at the alternate training site. The right-hander didn't appear in either of the team's two exhibition games but gave up five runs on five hits and three walks over three innings in Cactus League play this spring. Mujica has yet to make his major-league debut, and he's unlikely to see significant time in the big leagues during the shortened 2020 season.... See More ... See Less

Mujica underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
It's been a rough year for elbows in the Rays organization, as Brent Honeywell, Jose De Leon and Anthony Banda all required the same surgery. The timing of Mujica's procedure means that he's expected to miss the entirety of the 2019 season.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Jose Mujica: Lands on 60-day DL
Mujica was recalled from Triple-A Durham and placed on the 60-day disabled list Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Mujica was placed on the minor-league disabled list in late August with an undisclosed injury, and the move to the 60-day disabled list frees up a space on the Rays' 40-man roster.

Mujica was activated from the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Durham on July 19 and assigned to High-A Charlotte.
Mujica had been on the shelf for more than two months with a right forearm strain before he began a rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League on July 16. After that outing, the Rays elected to activate him and assign him to Charlotte, with whom he covered 3.2 innings and gave up two runs Tuesday in an 11-2 win over Florida. He'll likely need another start or two with the affiliate to build up his pitch count before slotting back into the Triple-A rotation.... See More ... See Less
