Top Helcris Olivarez News

  • Red Sox's Helcris Olivarez: Cut from spring camp

    The Red Sox reassigned Olivarez (shoulder) to minor-league camp Wednesday, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

    Once a promising pitching prospect in the Rockies organization, Olivarez's star has faded after shoulder problems limited him to just two total regular-season innings in the minors over the past two years. He joined the Red Sox on a minor-league pact in November and is seemingly healthy again, as he made two Grapefruit League appearances, giving up two earned runs on three hits and two walks over 1.2 innings. Given that Olivarez has yet to appear above the High-A level, he could be a candidate to open the campaign at Double-A Portland rather than Triple-A Worcester.

  • Red Sox's Helcris Olivarez: Inks minors contract with Boston

    Olivarez (shoulder) signed a minor-league contract Thursday with the Red Sox, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Olivarez was a promising prospect in the Rockies' system at age 17-18, but he has appeared in only one minor-league game over the last two seasons because of shoulder complications. The now 23-year-old left-hander will look to return to health and revitalize his professional career with the Red Sox.

  • Rockies' Helcris Olivarez: Cast off 40-man roster

    Olivarez (shoulder) was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.

    Olivarez sustained a scapula strain in the back of his left shoulder in April and spent the entire 2022 season on the injured list. It's unclear whether he'll be healthy for the start of spring training in 2023.

  • Rockies' Helcris Olivarez: Makes 2022 debut in rookie ball

    Olivarez (shoulder) began a rehab assignment with the Rockies' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate July 15 and struck out one over two perfect innings in his lone appearance for the club.

    The July 15 outing marked Olivarez's season debut after he had opened the season on the Rockies' 60-day injured list due to a left shoulder strain. The fact that he hasn't pitched again in the minors in the two and a half weeks since his initial appearance could hint at a possible setback in his recovery.

  • Rockies' Helcris Olivarez: Continuing throwing program

    Olivarez (shoulder) is getting stronger in his throwing program and has begun to throw off a slope, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

    Olivarez has been sidelined all season with a shoulder strain, and player development director Chris Forbes described the left-hander as "getting there." It's unclear when Colorado will feel comfortable getting Olivarez back into game action, though he will likely begin his season with Triple-A Albuquerque once cleared.

  • Rockies' Helcris Olivarez: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Olivarez (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

    Olivarez has been on the injured list since the start of the season due to a scapula strain in the back of his left shoulder, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return. However, the southpaw won't be eligible for game action until at least mid-June following Saturday's move to the lengthier injured list.

  • Rockies' Helcris Olivarez: On IL with scapula strain

    Olivarez has a scapula strain in the back of his left shoulder, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports.

    The 21-year-old southpaw spent the entire 2021 season at High-A, but he is on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Albuquerque, so perhaps the Rockies are intending on fast-tracking him to the majors once he is healthy.

  • Rockies' Helcris Olivarez: Goes to minors

    The Rockies optioned Olivarez to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.

    Olivarez was one of four players on the Rockies' 40-man roster that was dispatched to the minors Thursday, leaving Colorado with 47 players remaining at MLB camp. The 21-year-old lefty's demotion comes as little surprise, given that he has yet to pitch above the Double-A level. He covered 99.2 innings for High-A Spokane in 2021, submitting a 6.05 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 112:68 K:BB.

  • Rockies' Helcris Olivarez: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Olivarez was added to the Rockies' 40-man roster Friday.

    Olivarez will be protected from the upcoming Rule 5 draft after joining the 40-man roster. The southpaw was able to continue his development as part of the team's 60-man roster during the abbreviated 2020 campaign.
